Sasha makes strikingly unique music drawing inspiration from her Russian-American heritage, as well as the distinguished lineages of jazz, folk, country, and pop.

Sasha’s songs span genres and the continental divide. She’s garnered favorable comparisons to Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor, and Neko Case.

WebSite

Get the music from CDBaby - release March 27th

Bio
As a teenager, Lauren Edman was too shy to practice her singing exercises at home, but she grew up to be a woman with the moxie to perform on Apollo Amateur Night where contestants are routinely booed offstage. Lauren’s seductively spare solo debut It’s Always the Quiet One is a prismatic and intimate self-portrait. It’s a starkly vulnerable album that peeks under the veneer of shyness and examines the inner struggles of someone courageously and coyly grappling with the societal and personal manifestations of being soft-spoken.

Lauren is best known for her singing and songwriting on the track “Afterthoughts” from Sleepthief’s 2006 electronic album The Dawnseeker. At the time, she was a relatively unknown talent with a passion for trip-hop featuring ethereal but strong female vocalists. The Connecticut native moved to New York City around that time with the plan of making an album of her own music, but in the years that followed she struggled to find a balance between producing the music that played in her head and paying the rent. “I wrote a lot of these songs at around 3AM while working night jobs and living in a tiny, dingy bedroom in Queens,” she says. She later joined shoegaze band For Every Story Untold, with whom she currently gigs and records. The dual aesthetic trajectories of these disparate influences—the angelic electronic atmospherics of trip-hop and the earthiness of the shoegaze aesthetic inform It’s Always the Quiet One. The album begins with a minimalistic electronic direction that morphs to an organic and rustic sensibility in its second half.

Artist - May McDonough and Co.

Track 1 - Mama, drain the bathtub
Track 2 - Red Tag Nation
Track 3 - Riverside

MainSite     MySpace

Bio:

The stories May McDonough and Company tell in their music elude to some of these whimsical tales, ever vaguely and cryptically hinting at various disasters, deaths, bastard siblings, homeless trials, and somewhat bizarre worlds of self-exploration.

May and Company's arrangements are equally as filled with whimsy and charm. Strung out with rich moods and decked with junkyard percussion, their songs instantly warp you in to a specific time and place where no corner of the room goes unpainted. Whether you're thrown back early century evenings at the birdcage theatre, lusting after a burlesque dancer, or you find yourself stumbling down an alley at midnight having just puked out a bottle of Jameson, when you listen to MMC songs you know exactly where you are, exactly how you feel, and you know they wanted it that way.

Now May plays with her ragtag band of junkyard dogs. Her band wales away at led pipes, trashcans, and overturned bicycles, as she sludges through chords and eases through chest-searing vocals that open even the most tightly crossed arms.”

Bio:
Aryn Michelle is a do-it-yourself indie pop songstress who has always refused to wait around for her next big break; she makes it happen. As a teenager Aryn taught herself piano and guitar, and soon after began writing her own music. While attending Southwestern University, Aryn began releasing homemade demos of her original music and began performing around Austin, TX. With a hunger to become a better songwriter and performer, she attended Berklee College of Music in Boston for a few years and also began to learn how to engineer and produce her own demos and crowd-fund her recording projects.

Aryn released her debut album, Lockless Heart, in 2009 as she was finishing her work at Berklee. While at Berklee she was honored with the Scott Benson Award for songwriting, and awarded the grand prize in the 2009 Berklee Substance Abuse Prevention Campaign for her song “Crave.” Since leaving Berklee, Aryn was selected as a regional finalist for the 2009 Mountain Stage NewSong Festival, was invited to be one of eight artists to represent the TUNE campaign, was named the TexasCSA’s 2010 Songwriter of the Year, was the 2010 KLTY’s Chick-fil-a Celebrate Freedom jingle writing contest grand prize winner, and was a top ten finalist in the 2011 Folgers’ National Jingle Writing Contest.

Bio:
A fellow artist once said, "Her music does what every songwriter wishes their music could do: it hollows you out, then fills you back in. It breaks your heart and builds you a new one. It moves you."

A singer/songwriter by way of New Jersey, Boston, and now Brooklyn, NY, Laura DiStasi's music captures both the vibrancy and isolation of city life. Her lyrics hit close to the bone and are heavy with imagery. She plucks moments from the everyday, holding up promise in one hand and heartbreak in the other. The music feels its way though impressionistic landscapes, exploring the complex depth of relationships and change… nostalgic, yet hopeful… that anything worth lamenting is, once was, or could be beautiful.

Best known as half the electro-pop collaboration 'Measure', Laura also performs and records as a solo artist, as well as with other NYC based musicians. She has already shared the stage with artists such as Nada Surf, Fountains of Wayne, Chris Barron, Slow Runner, Tom Brosseau, and Caroline, to name a few. Beyond the live show, Laura's music has been placed on television shows, such as Melrose Place and NBC's Mercy, as well used in a Public Service Announcement narrated by Morgan Freeman for volunteerism, a cause dear to Laura who is preparing for her third marathon to raise money for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.

Laura's releases include her 2005 debut, "Winters Never Quit", Measure's 2008 debut, "Begin Again", and a recent 3 song pre-release for an upcoming Measure album, which is currently available for streaming online.

Bio:

Multi-instrumentalist songwriter and producer Dave Tough fell in love with the angelic voice and guitar work of DeAnna Moore when searching for demo singers on Myspace in 2009. They met and soon realized that they both shared a love of artists such as Fiona Apple, Goldfrapp and Edie Brickell as well as a penchant for older jazz standards. The name Xavier & Ophelia (X&O) came from a pair of children’s dolls.

X&O’s music collectively has been placed in movies, television and commercials. Musically, they tend to combine Bachrach-eqsque melodies with electronic production intermingled with live instruments such as the acoustic guitar and drums. The duo released their first 9 song effort, X&O EP, in 2011. They continue explore new sounds and textures from their studio in Nashville, TN.

When you surround these four females around their thunderous drummer, you can be sure to get a live performance of a lifetime. Their eclectic mix of melodic punk-rock, dubbed pop-metal by Pitchforkmedia, is a one of a kind blend hailing from a the harsh environs of Iceland.

Vicky has been honing their live shows for the last three years, playing in absolutely every nook and cranny location in their home country. Having taken the Icelandic live scene by storm they gained attention abroad playing the biggest rock festival in China as well as being invited multiple times to the States, playing for rock hungry live crowds in New York and St. Louis. Their reputation as a live act has spread throughout North America as they are currently lined up to rock the Canadian Music Fest in 2010.

Jessie Kilguss - Irish Tour

Aug 9, 2011

Description:

Jessie Kilguss featured on SpudShow185 and will be in Ireland from 26th - 29th of August:

Friday, August 26th
With the Mick Carey Band
Alcock & Brown Hotel
Clifden, Ireland

Monday, August 29th 9-11pm
Sweeney’s Mongrel

Info

Jessie Kilguss is a singer, not an actress -- it's worth getting that straight up front. With lines as cinematic as "Mesmerized by city streets, you crept your way under my sheets." ("Americana"), one might just be led to believe that this chanteuse who displays bedroom eyes for your ears has had some training.

Truth be told, we now realize that a sincerely sung song and a soulful piece of theater are merely great examples of great art. Jessie's known this all along, and what with Scarlett and Zooey now making records, this fact is all the more understood.

Info
Defining creative musicians by genre is often a difficult task, but in the case of Rahe, it’s virtually impossible. And describing her as a singer/songwriter simply doesn’t do justice to an artist whose songs weave beautifully melodic lines with complex, compelling chord changes, soulfully powerful lyrics and a diaspora of world rhythms into a musical vision that is entirely her own. With a life story as colorful and diverse as her music, Rahe (pronounced “ray”) has been on a direct path toward her stunningly mature musical vision for nearly all of her 23 years. It is now in full bloom, as evidenced by her group – Rahe & illumiNation – a stunning ensemble featuring Rahe on vocals and nylon string acoustic guitar, a saxophone quartet (alto, tenor and two baritones), and drums.

Phoenix, Arizona, her hometown was her first hand introduction to music & her love for the arts! At an early age was where it all began. T. West, an accomplished guitarist, also her father, was inspirational in her love for playing the bass! He taught her a few runs on the guitar and she learned it quickly. He also noticed she had great dexterity with her fingers, even being left handed, playing a right-handed guitar. It didn’t stop there, this love ignited in her a passion to vocalize & verbalize what she felt as her hands began to quickly adapt to the strings.

Bio
Kaile Goh may look familiar to you ... as a model and actress she has been in countless commercials and major campaigns, including Disney, Target, JC Penney, Wal-Mart, Barbie, Bratz, Kodak, and many more.


This year, at 14, she adds “professional musician” to her resume with the release of her debut album, “One Too Many Times.”

Born to a Chinese father and an American mother, Kaile lived in Singapore for the first several years of her life. When her family moved to Los Angeles she began modeling and acting, signing with Ford Modeling Agency and Abrams Artists. Kaile’s passion, however, has always been for music.

She began singing, playing guitar and writing songs at the age of nine. Using her own money earned from modeling to buy her Gibson Hummingbird guitar, she had her first song played on UCLA Radio at the age of 10. Her parents encouraged her, giving her lessons and taking her to open mic nights.

With the guidance of producers Krish Sharma (Perry Ferrell, Rolling Stones) and Bobby Brooks (P.O.D.), Kaile’s debut cd includes 11 of the more than 40 songs she has written, ranging in style from power pop to hard rock.

To support the release of “One Too Many Times” she has a string of west coast performances lined up with her band.

Bio

Raised in households where a myriad of music was played and appreciated, from Pink Floyd to The Allmans and Chuck Berry to Joao Gilberto, it comes as no surprise these artists create such diverse tracks. All having been introduced to pianos and drums in the grade school years, they acquired their addictions early on to the creative process and performing craft. Through a series of mutual crossroads in the Catskills and New York while supporting others, Government Mule and The Violent Femmes, these musicians met and formed their own project The Devyl Nellys.

Gigs in music towns, parties and colleges across the US led to genre development by songwriter Nelly Levon and guitarist James Mastro (The Bongos). Their distinct 60 bohemian rock style took shape after experimental jams and studio sessions at Retrophonics with Jim DeVito (JJ Grey & Mofro) and Bill Chapin (Justin Timberlake). Conflicting frustrations with mainstream art and life led to sharp lyrics that are frequently empathisized, and rarely sang. Like many contemporaries, they denied the urge to conform and pursued the independent route to showcase their arrangements. Recently, they've been heard on the festival scene, live venues, songwriter circles and across radio, television & film.

Formed in 2008 when guitar player Tony and bass player Aidan first met Dublin born singer Colm for the first time through an ad placed in a national newspaper. Meeting in a local bar, sat next to an open fire Colm took out his guitar and played some of his songs. The lads loved his deep baritone and captivating lyrics. A rehearsal was arranged and drummer Bryan was soon onboard. Colm’s songs, mixed with riffs and guitar ideas from Tony along with the musical ideas and arrangements from the entire band have come to form the Protobaby sound.
The band spent 10 months writing, recording, jamming and rehearsing. Having released their debut E.P. 'Freedom' to some great reviews in the music press the band spent a few months of 2010 gigging and promoting 'Freedom'. Following a successful nationwide tour the band returned to the studio to work on a new single ‘State Of Affairs which was later mixed at 'The Production Suite' in Dublin and will be released along with a video in late February. At the beginning of 2011 Hot Press magazine included Protobaby in their ‘Hot for 2011’ feature. A nationwide tour began in late February taking in Limerick, Kerry, Dublin, Dundalk, Cork and Galway.
On 20th May Protobaby played at Juwenalia 2011 in Bialystok, Poland which was headlined by Guano Apes and had 20000+ rock fans attending.

Bio
23-year-old Rachel Brown is a singer, songwriter and musician born and raised in New York City. Brown’s music fuses pop, Caribbean, Hawaiian, country and world sounds into a captivating groove."

In solo recordings, with her guitar or ukulele, Rachel’s unique voice combines sweetness, sultriness and vulnerability, enchanting the listener. When coupled with her band of talented African musicians, Brown’s Bermudian and Ethiopian heritage shines.

As a fairly new artist with no formal musical training, Brown found her voice the old fashioned way. “My songwriting process—which started about five years ago— consisted of grabbing my guitar and learning to play it while I wrote these songs,” says Brown. “I just kind of play things until they sound right.”

Brown’s natural talent was quickly recognized by her peers and established veterans alike. She was the 2010 recipient of the prestigious ASCAP Foundation Robert Allen Award for songwriting. She also awarded a very coveted audition slot at the National Association for Campus Activities national convention.

At age 14 she was blessed to learn guitar from the late DC icon and Blue Note artist Noble Jolley. Later, she studied opera and theatre, skills that help make every Ally Way performance an event.

Ally's muse has taken her many places. She taught yoga in Central America, sang with great Costa Rican musicians, and then rolled into San Francisco like a velvet fog. Arriving with no job and no place of her own, she brought only her talent, her extensive

I grew up in Russia, started singing before my first birthday and spent most of my childhood dreaming about becoming a big star. At ten, after failing at ballet, swimming, gymnastics and volleyball, I finally demanded to be put in a music school, where I chose classical guitar as my instrument and somehow ended up becoming a lead singer and acoustic guitarist of a country and bluegrass band (we're still in Russia at this point, you're following?) that later moved to Nashville, TN and became known as Bering Strait. Twenty years, one Jazz College, five major record deals, two country albums, one movie (The Ballad Of Bering Strait that you can now watch in Hulu) and one GRAMMY NOMINATION later, I'm on my own, there's a new SOLO ALBUM out, and I'm about to go back to the studio to record two more. So listen to the songs, check out my website with more samples of the music and other stuff to see, and do click on the banner above and please enjoy yourself! Oh, and by the way, I teach yoga at South 11 Yoga in East Nashville, so come be my student! Peace!

Info
The world of Volary’s music is a world full of light and darkness. It examines the hope, despair, and countless other feelings that struggle through us as part of the human condition. “As a child I would go into my room, turn my stereo on loud, and let all of my frustration, disappointment, and hurt explode from me by singing. Nobody else ever seemed to want to say quite the things that I did though,” she muses. “I suppose that was my songwriter’s voice telling me that I had to write songs for those like myself who were still disenfranchised.”

It was not until the Australian-born singer moved to San Francisco in 2001 though, that she discovered a city bursting with the artistic intimacy and honesty of singer/songwriters. Ultimately, it was the inspiration for her to say “OK, nobody’s ever going to write the songs that I hear until I learn to play the guitar and write them myself.” The result was “Out of Shadows,” an album which not only earned a 5 star review from Muzikreviews.com, but was also named their “Pick of the Week” (Dec 4, 2010).

Volary muses about her creation: “You might compare it to a sculpture of delicate flowers made out of barbed wire.” The album takes flight through a land of mixed human emotions. Most of the songs delve into the darker sides of the human psyche, but as in a chiaroscuro, there is always light again. “I wrote, co-produced, sang, and played acoustic and electric guitar on the album, but this album is not just about me. I was honoured to work with some amazing musicians and together we made this album what it is.”

The dichotomy, yet juxtaposition of elements is an apt parallel to the name Volary, and to the basis of the album. Volary is an obscure English term, defined as a flight or flock of birds, or the cage you keep them in. What better metaphor for freedom, escape and joy, than a bird taking flight? What better metaphor for having your spirit broken than being put in a cage? And what greater dichotomy than a singer/songwriter who has a Ph. D. in Biochemistry but is so willing to be emotionally vulnerable musically? Watch as this complex talent from California steps out of the shadows.

Not many can claim they are a sixth generation Californian, let alone Angeleno. Manda Mosher can. Still what does that mean? It’s not as easily defined as saying you are a sixth generation New Yorker, or Bostonian for that matter. Manda’s first ancestor to settle in the region, came to Downtown, Los Angeles in the 1800’s from Delhi, New York after the Civil War, additional family followed establishing a chicken farm in the Valley in 1911.

Manda Mosher grew up in the town of La Crescenta, just outside of Los Angeles. A sleepy and secluded community located at the foot of the mountains just North of Pasadena. Close enough to the city of angels that Manda was well versed in the Hollywood music scene, but just far enough away that she could peek over the fence and gaze upon it from a safe distance.

The title track of Manda’s new EP “City of Clowns” was written about her relationship with Los Angeles which she describes as a love/hate sort of affair, as depicted in the song. Although the lyrics can relate to any city to some degree, Manda admits she has often thought of leaving Los Angeles, but it is her family that has continued to keep her here. “I’ve always felt sadness for this town. I’ve watched all these people come and go, taking what they can, getting famous, getting rich, with little regard for the community and the people that call it home. On the other hand the opportunities are endless here.”

From virtual unknowns to stars of the Warped Tour and stadiums across Europe, HorrorPops have thrived on the strength of great songwriting, remarkable intuition, a jaw-dropping live experience and a willingness to explore an array of styles. Be it new wave, punk, surf, ska, rockabilly, metal or goth, the trio's self-produced, film-centric third Hellcat album, Kiss Kiss Kill Kill, embraces all of the aforementioned rock & roll subgenres with admirable aplomb.

Crafting a thrill ride of an album is no easy feat, but Patricia Day (lead vocals/upright bass), Nekroman (lead guitar/vocals) and Niedermeier (drums/vocals) have done so by adhering to instinct. By staying true to their original and diverse musical vision, HorrorPops have flourished, building a tremendously loyal and ever-growing following in the process.

From the charged anthem, "Missfit" - replete with an amusing nod to Madness' "Our House" that takes the song to unexpected heights - to the adventurously dark title track, Kiss Kiss Kill Kill is both captivating and inspiring. The album's namesake, which elicits memories of The Cure, Siouxsie & the Banshees and - thanks to its deep, sinister harmonies - Sisters of Mercy, is at once an ingenious new tune and an ardent tribute to past icons.

Bio:
Piney Gir taunts traditional country music with a big city edge… Jesus Wept is Piney's 4th album out on Damaged Goods and is a nod to Piney's strict religious upbringing and her urge to walk the line between naughty and nice. There comes a time when everyone should question their faith and Piney (with the help of her trusty Roadshow) has channelled that into a record. A record that's a little bit country, a little bit rock 'n' roll and a whole lot of attitude.

Jesus Wept is more than a froth of petticoats in a fresh summer field, it's Ingmar Bergman's 'Seventh Seal' twisted through the eyes of a local drunk at the truck stop honky tonk. It's fun but it's dark and you don't know if you should like it so much but you do, so have another whiskey.

Previously Piney has been compared to her heroes like Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette; she's been hailed an 'indie Dolly Parton." But this album is more Emmy Lou Harris in her Graham Parsons days, it's little girl lost… it's the devil in disguise and the devil looks good. This album sees Piney grow up and face hard facts; hard facts that can make many a country song that much better. "'A tear in my beer' ain't the half of it," says Piney.

Info

Passion, drive, and great writing – these adjectives define the music and life of Susan Cattaneo. Growing up on a farm in New Jersey but spending her summers on an Arizona ranch, Susan moved easily between the energy and electricity of the East Coast and the wide open spaces and campfire stories of the West. Susan found her place in the musical world at an early age, singing six-part harmony with her family around the dinner table. After stints in bands in college, she spent a year in Italy, where she studied Italian and performed a mix of standards and traditional Roman songs in various piano bars in Rome. Upon her return to the States, she began a dual career in New York City. By day, Susan was a television writer/producer, earning an Emmy nomination and NY State Broadcasters Award. By night, she was the co-lead singer in the Blackfish Band, a funk-folk outfit that also launched the career of Mike Errico, where she became a regular fixture at clubs like The Bitter End and Kenny’s Castaways. Applying her writing talents to the craft of songwriting was a natural next step, and following her musical dream, Susan headed to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music on a vocal scholarship.

Bio

Hungry Lucy began by chance in 1998 when War-N Harrison (Fishtank No.9) was asked to contribute to a Depeche Mode tribute album. War-N asked vocalist/lyricist Christa Belle to record vocals for the song "Blue Dress". The couple found they worked together so well that Hungry Lucy was born.

Hungry Lucy chillin' outAfter spending a year writing and recording, the Autumn of 2000 saw the release of Hungry Lucy"s debut CD, "Apparitions". The album garnered much attention across the US and Europe for it"s combination of pop song structures, trip hop grooves and Christa"s haunting vocals & other-worldly lyrics. This attention of this debut CD lead to a licensing deal with Belgian label Alfa Matrix and subsequent European relase of Apparitions:Revisited in Fall of 2001.

After spending Spring and early summer of 2002 performing live, Hungry Lucy completed their next full length album entitled "Glo". Glo captures all the elements that Hungry Lucy are known for while continuing to explore other genres such as jazz, blues and europop. Once again, the album received critical acclaim and glowing reviews worldwide and expanded Hungry Lucy"s reach to a much wider audience.

In the Summer of 2003, Hungry Lucy embarked on a tour with Pittsburgh"s ThouShaltNot across the Western and Midwest regions of the United States. This gave people of chance to hear, as well as see, what Hungry Lucy is all about. True to form, Hungry Lucy delivered stunning performances along with synchronized video accompanyment. Several one-off shows in late 2003 / early 2004 (including performances with Cruxshadows & Wolfsheim) followed.

In Spring of 2004, it was time to head back into the studio and capture the new material Hungry Lucy had compiled over the preceding months. The result, Hungry Lucy"s 3rd full-length CD, "To Kill a King" was released in Nov. 2004 to critical acclaim from both fans and the media alike, debuting at #9 on the French Alternative Charts in January, 2005. In addition to college and club DJ exposure, "To Kill a King" has been featured on Public Radio programs such as PRI"s "Echoes" and the X-Star Network"s "Audiosyncracies". The album brilliantly displays Hungry Lucy"s passion for musical contrast and clever songwriting for which this duo is known.

Hungry Lucy returned from successful 6 week US tour and are currently writing for the next release.

Info

Following the March release of debut album The Noyelle Beat, Sheffield trio Standard Fare are set to release the lauded album track Philadelphia as the next single. A tale of a Transatlantic love affair stymied by distance and budget, Philadelphia is a marvel of kitchen sink lyric-writing that, like the best of indie-pop, refuses to let wider issues get in the way of a bit of hormone-fuelled self indulgence. Here’s our favourite lyric: “Global warming is getting me down/It’s making the sea between us wider and deeper.” On the B-side is a brand new track, the really rather ace Don’t Tell. Both are the perfect crash-course in the band’s tune-fuelled, scrappy and utterly loveable sound.

Info
Singer/Songwriter Annie Fitzgerald combines tender lyrics akin to Shawn Colvin, a timeless sound like that of Ray Lamontagne, a soulfulness kindred to Patty Griffin, and a quiet intensity similar to Damien Rice, then stirs the pot into a sound that’s all her own.

Fitzgerald grew up in Crookston, MN where, at age two, she began to show her artistic talents as a dancer. She began piano lessons at age six. Her talent allowed her the opportunity to travel to New York City, Chicago, Hawaii and Atlanta. By the age of 14, she had become an award-winning choreographer.

She focused on her music in college and received a B.M. in Vocal Performance from the University of Minnesota, and spent a summer training at the Mountview Theatre School in London. After graduation, she worked in and around as an actress in the Minneapolis area as a member of the working theater community and the Actors Equity Association. In 2005, she moved to NYC to focus on performing her original music.

Info
Sitting across from Leslie DiNicola, you get the feeling that you’re sipping coffee with Sandra Bullock or Jennifer Aniston- the sexy “girl next door.” But when she opens her mouth on stage, she unleashes the soulful blues diva that will rock your world. Not many artists today can dazzle 38,000 people at Citi Field and then, moments later, take the stage at an intimate club like Googie’s Lounge and captivate the audience with merely a whisper into the microphone. But Leslie DiNicola can. And has.

DiNicola moved around a lot when she was growing up, and has that unique perspective of someone who’s been “the new kid at school” a few too many times. After graduating from Syracuse University, Leslie found herself pulled in opposite directions by her love of music and her love of sailing. She reflects, “By the time I was 22 and moved to Manhattan, I had already lived in 8 different places. No matter how much you like a place, the way I liked NY, there’s a hesitancy to get too comfortable. I think that’s what kept me running off to sea so often, sailing to different countries every chance I got.”

Info
“Most musicians on the ascendancy would be shouting loudly about an Emmy nomination for one of their songs, but LA's Rie Sinclair almost shrugs hers off as a mark of recognition for work separate from her chosen field of singing/songwriting. Confused? You won't be. You see, by day she's in demand as a writer and performer of beautiful songs for Hollywood studios, providing atmosphere and emotion to back up the visuals. But by night she dons another cape, crafting her own elation and despair into perfected four-minute vignettes; she records and delivers them live with equal finesse and commitment. And despite already having two studio albums in the bag, her third, A Moment You Never Dreamed, is the one she considers her debut." –Train And Penny, UK

After several releases, Emmy-Nominated Rie Sinclair's official "Debut" Album, A Moment You Never Dreamed, is here. Her previous recorded projects include a collaboration with ex-Eels, Abandoned Pools artist, Tommy Walter called Oliver the Penguin. The "Sparkling Violeteer's" new dark, raw, & sexy LP was co-produced by the artist with Eli Thomson (Richard Swift), & brought to life with a collective of amazing musicians. Mastered by three-time Grammy winner Gavin Lurssen in Los Angeles, A Moment captures Rie's haunting but playful vibe in a 40 something-minute set that could easily score a film.

MySpace

New CD - Journal de Bad

Info
Acclaimed by the public and critics alike, Bárbara Eugênia is part of a new generation of female voices that are redefining the Brazilian musical scene. Born in Rio de Janeiro but calling São Paulo home since 2005, this young artist with a unique voice and highly nuanced stage persona started her career with an invitation from musical producer Apollo 9 to record two tracks for the movie O Cheiro do Ralo, directed by Heitor Dhália. Inspired by French chanson, Bárbara decided to shift the focus back onto songs made popular by singers like Anna Karina and Brigitte Bardot, in a tribute to Serge Gainsbourg, idealized by Edgard Scandurra. In her participation in shows by the group 3NAMASSA, comprised of Pupillo and Dengue from Nação Zumbi and Rica Amabis from Instituto, Bárbara added a female touch that made for a magical public performance. As she starts her solo career, Bárbara travels from Brazil to French music, and has been well-received by both the public and the media; her shows in various cities around Brazil signal her coming of age as an artist. In 2009, she decided to record her first album, bringing together a group of friends all seeking to tap her artistic character in surprising ways. She is accompanied by her talented band: Júnior Boca (guitar and musical direction), Dustan Gallas (bass, keyboards, mixing and production) and Felipe Maia (drums).
We began recording in january/2009 and after a brief pause we managed to finish it up in the begining of 2010. The album is called Journal de BAD. Journal for diary in french and BAD is my nickname for the closest friend.

Info
Girls singing retro-tinged tunes with synchronised dance moves? A Machiavellian pop experiment inspired by KLF’s The Manual cooked up in a Brighton boozer by the mysterious Svengali Monster Bobby? Well yes, but there’s been an evolution - a change in the genetics. The Pipettes are back, and now they’re a big shiny pop group. Or at least, that’s what they’d like you to believe.

In their first incarnation, donning polka dot dresses and referencing the girl groups of the late fifties in the heyday of skinny tie indie music, The Pipettes had remarkable success. A top ten album in Japan where the single 'Pull Shapes' was only kept off the number one spot by J-Lo, top ten radio positions all across Europe, two Top Forty hits in the UK and a Top Ten in the US billboard indies. They played on the main stages at Reading and Glastonbury, blazed a British trail across SXSW, conquered the world and sold a heap of records.

Bio
PIXIKILL is a band that combines the most interesting textures of Electronic and Grunge music and places these textures over finely crafted pop songs.  The group currently resides in Los Angeles and is fronted by the Restaneo sisters, Jewel and Blaire.  Unlike many groups with such highly tuned pop sensibilities, Pixikill doesnt suffer from any lack of rock credibility.

Bio
Jackson, Miss. native, Anne Davis' new self-produced album, Letters, Prayers, and Journal Entries, a compilation of thought-provoking upbeat tempos and ballads from the "folk-alternative" artist, has been turning ears as it has traveled throughout the U.S. and beyond by receiving quite favorable college radio airplay. Davis wrote all fifteen tracks, and the "organic feel" of the melodies is attributed to the defining instruments you'll find on the album.

"What I really wanted to go for was to put together a project using only real instruments....and that meant no compromise with using any type of fabricated sounds, including drum machines." And, that's exactly what you're going to hear--such instruments as the cello, violin, upright acoustic bass, mandolin, accordion, penny whistle and the uilleann pipe on the CD. "I wanted everything to be real....for me, as an artist, it only made sense for the production of the project to be as soul-baring as the lyrics."

Info

Singer/songwriter Holly Long has two hands, and she’s using them. She’s no princess, and she’s no queen. She’s just a straight up modern day musical artisan with a genuine love for the work and an impressive track record. Having crafted 4 albums over the past decade in her pop/funk/soul hybrid style with a string of top-shelf producers, Long communicates her passion and worldview with an evocative sound in league with Annie Lenox, Sarah McLachlan, and Carly Simon. It’s not just about the music, though. Much like for her chanteuse heroines, music is about connection and community. It’s where she finds herself, and how she makes her contribution to the world.

MainSite     MySpace

Info
Rökkurró’s melancholic serenades are evocative of the cold and desolate landscapes of their distant homeland. Mesmerising tones and swooping strings projected against a bleak and solitary Nordic backdrop. And yet, unique warmth pervades Rökkurró’s music owed to the fragile and soothing voice of Hildur Kristín Stefánsdóttir.

Their debut Það Kólnar Í Kvöld.. (It’s Getting Colder Tonight) was released in 2007 in Iceland, Europe and Japan to great critical acclaim, followed by tour dates with iconic figures of the Icelandic music scene múm and celebrated neo-classical composer Ólafur Arnalds.

Three years on Rökkurró are releasing their sophomore album Í Annan Heim (In Another World) produced by Alex Somers, partner and music collaborator of Jónsi Þór Birgisson (Sigur Rós). Í Annan Heim is a collection of nine graceful compositions that showcase a darker, more expansive and mature sound, full of meticulously crafted melodies, complex arrangements and smooth sonic textures.

Rökkurró was selected by Clash Magazine to play at the Nordic Music Export clubnight Ja Ja Ja in London in October 2010.

AOEDE'S STORY: Once upon a time, way back in Greek mythology, there was a muse named Aoede (A-E-D). She was the first "muse of song" way before the 9 celebrated muses we know and love. And I, Lisa Sniderman, singer-songwriter for Aoede, chose this name both to inspire you and to remember to continually be inspired...I draw inspiration from my own life experiences and many muses and aspire to transfer this inspiration to you. When you listen to my songs, expect compelling stories of love, loss, life, and longing-intended to take you, shake you and wake you. It's About YOU and your connection to me-in ways that make you feel and experience those parts of yourself you may have forgotten about. Maybe after listening, you are inspired to live life a little more fully or feel something.

I formed an indie *pop rock* band in 2005 comprised of San Francisco trio Lisa Sniderman (that's me), David Sands (bass), and John Walden (drums). Now in 2010, I'm reinventing myself as an artiste as evidenced by the direction of my new singles and the word artiste...

Wensday is an exotic young woman of contrasts: she's been a body piercing artist, a jazz singer and a rocker – and Associate Director of All Children's Theatre in her hometown of Providence, Rhode Island. A graduate of NYU and a student at Oxford University, Wensday is covered in eloquent artistic tattoos on more than 50% of her body.

Multiple hit songwriter and legendary guitarist DICK WAGNER (Alice Cooper, Lou Reed, Kiss, Aerosmith, Air Supply) produced TORCH ROCK™ and wrote or co-wrote all 13 tracks of the TORCH ROCK™ album. Wagner plays lead guitar throughout the CD; and he has assembled a brilliant group of musicians, including Fred Mandel (Elton John, Queen, Alice Cooper), Bobby Flores (Grammy winning arranger and Country Instrumentalist of the Year), Nils Lofgren (Bruce Springsteen), to record Wensday's musical debut.

"After a long time trying to figure out what style I do best, I truly get to do it all on Torch Rock," says Wensday. "I think the album conveys that I'm a singer, first and foremost... Connecting emotionally with people is the most important thing to me."

Info
A songwriter since age eleven, having given up the violin for the more "songwriter friendly" acoustic guitar, she has already issued four independent Cds: The Story So Far, Piece By Piece, Modern Loneliness and The Rose In The Boxcar. This prolific singer-songwriter has just released her fifth Cd of original material titled Petals Of The Red Magnolia. Her eclectic style encompasses such genres as pop-rock, edgy folk-rock, adult contemporary and even a little country. Her genuine and sincere songs evoke a broad array of emotional responses from her listeners.

Carol has been performing as a singer-songwriter throughout Southern California since the early 1990s, helping to create the coffee house circuit in So Cal. She continues to play weekly in coffee houses, small clubs, book and music stores, and college venues. Her performances feature acoustic guitar versions of her original songs as well as her warm rapport with audiences. Her extensive repertoire  (ranging from the humorous to the not-so-humorous) and wide variety of subject matters (from surfer chicks to Momma’s station wagon to Teflon-coated hearts and the spaces between) ensure that no two performances are ever alike!.

Track 1 - Me Cai

MainSite     MySpace

Info
It had to happen eventually. For a generation of musicians that has now grown up with the sounds of world music, a truly global pop music was just a matter of time. And for the trio Pacifika, "eventually" means now. The trio's debut album, 2008's Asuncion, introduced their artful blend of indie rock, bossa nova, Afropop, and dub production. With the new Supermagique, Pacifika have refined that sound – a multilingual, listener-friendly music that marries languid Latin rhythms to a deep dance groove, and offers a high-gloss sheen with some surprisingly sharp edges.

Pacifika's global fusion works precisely because it is not a fusion. There is no sense of trying to blend one thing with another; this is the work of three musicians, coming from Peruvian, North American, and Barbadian families, for whom rock, Latin, Caribbean, hip hop, and jazz are all part of a single international musical language – a kind of musical Esperanto. Singer Silvana Kane is from Peru; guitarist Adam Popowitz is from Canada; bassist Toby Peter grew up in Barbados. Using the Pacific city of Vancouver as a base, they have set out to create music that reflects their shared interests in Western pop and the traditions of South America, West Africa, and the Far East. The rest of Canada has been paying attention: last year Pacifika was named one of the "Bands of the Year" by the CBC, and they've been regulars on national television in their adopted homeland. Over in the States, Asuncion was singled out by critics as a "best of the year" on amazon.com, i-tunes, NPR and many other prestigious outlets and tracks from the record were licensed for use in a variety of films and television programs like HBO's red hot, True Blood. With Supermagique, they are poised for international success.

Info

Hailed by New Zealand's National Radio as the pioneer of a new sound, Jordans music has been variously described as "industrial folk", "folk noir" and "Antipodean Steampunk" yet defies any cut and dried description. Imagine a 19th Century Nine Inch Nails banging on old iron and steam powered machines, combined with the Dead Can Dance's electronic folk soundscapes and Sinead Oconnor's vocals in the background.
Jordans 5th CD was realeased in April 2009. "How the Dead Live" is a tale inspired by the story of one of New Zealands first pioneer women, Susannah Hawes. The CD follows a (fictive) dialoge between Susannah and History herself. History has been sent to track Susannahs 'ordinary' life and is irritated with the lack of battles and adventure in the lonely west coast town of Karamea. Susannah suggests, however, that maybe it is those who are overlooked by History who are really 'the Brave'.
Jordan is a 3 time nominee at the New Zealand Music Awards, and has carved a neiche for her unique sense of musicality. Her music is dark yet beautiful, and has appealed to reviewers both locally and internationally

Info

The Rebirth Station consists of singer/songwriter Magdalena Konefal and drummer/producer Povel Ohlsson (among other artists, drummer for Robyn). The duo was behind Magdalenas debut EP that caused quite a stir in Swedish media last year with it´s innovative soulful pop.

The music was on high rotation on national radio P3,  video “Hit of the week” at music video channel ZTV, and the newspapers wrote about “dreamlike soul with a hint of Curtis Mayfield and Prince”. Magdalena was immediately booked to Stockholm Jazz festival and other prestigious venues.

The new material is introduced under the name “The RebirthStation”, a name  present right from the start in the studio and while playing live,  now a fitting name for the duo since Povel taken on a more active roll in the creative process.

When he´s not making music with The Rebirth Station he tours with Robyn, makes Techno/House music and remixes for other artists under the name PomP. Magdalena Konefal writes the vast majority of the music and lyrics for The Rebirth Station. Coming from the jazz-scene she was recognised as a very promising jazz-singer through the ten years.

Info

The band has spent the better part of the past six years constantly recording and touring, amassing a loyal fan-base through a very personal approach to performing. Apart from their official albums, Saturday Looks Good To Me has released shopping carts full of limited releases with microscopic indie labels, and delighted fans with regular tour-only CD-Rs and LPs. The development towards the very personal and near-religious sounds on Fill Up The Room can be tracked through these obscure releases, and the record's delivery into the world serves as both a bold statement from a band stepping away from what it was before into something more deliberate and a heartfelt thanks to the die-hard fans for sticking by through the strange changes. And as always, through whatever changes and in whatever language available, Saturday Looks Good To Me exists as a testament to the magic and limitless love that is the pop song, and the endlessness therein.

Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings have come a long way since their humble beginnings nearly a decade ago. Steeped within the gilded and gritty sounds of gospel, soul and funk, this nine-piece Brooklyn collective has continued to electrify fans, disc jockeys, critics, record collectors, and bloggers the world-over with their authentic, heart-felt sound. The authenticity clearly demonstrated on the band’s three critically-acclaimed albums – Dap Dippin’ (2002), Naturally (2005) and 100 Days, 100 Nights (2007) – captured and released by the independent Daptone Records. Their albums recall an analog era led by iconic studios like those at Motown and Stax Records, and have thrust the fifty-three-year-old Augusta, GA native and crew into the multimedia limelight.

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals are like a modern-day version of Tina Turner stroking the microphone in a spangled mini-dress while fronting the Rolling Stones circa Sticky Fingers. The proof is there for all to hear on the band’s third album for Hollywood Records, hitting this spring, and marks an artistic breakthrough for a vital young band caught in the act of fulfilling its immense promise. Little wonder that Grace and her cohorts have chosen to title it, directly and emphatically, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.

“This record is the first time it’s really been us — the first time we’ve all found each other and ourselves,” says Potter with obvious excitement. “Everybody was totally comfortable, everything we had was sitting right in front of us, and it just poured out of us. The whole thing was fluid and effortless. In my mind, an album shouldn’t be self-titled unless it feels that way.”

Info

As the great thespian Patrick Swayze once said, "Nobody puts Baby in a corner." The same is true of Sarah Borges. On the basis of her critically-lauded early work, particularly Diamonds in the Dark (2007), some pundits decided they know exactly where the Boston-area rocker and her cohorts, the Broken Singles, belong in the musical spectrum. They were mistaken. Her new record, The Stars Are Out, is about to stun them with a more vibrant, far-reaching display of what Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles are all about. And yes, there will be dancing.

"We always want people to dance," enthuses Borges. "That's the best way to get a show going." After months of touring in support of Diamonds, she knew the character of her third album needed to be more upbeat than its contemplative predecessors. "I was trying to think of songs that would fit really well into our live show." The results include the slinky, '60s stroll of "Me and Your Ghost" ("That's about going out and dancing, all the things you used to do with your loved one"); the flirtatious, guitar-driven kickoff, "Do It For Free"; and "It Comes To Me Naturally," a hip-shaking tale of a girl-about-town, originally recorded by bar band supreme NRBQ.

Diamonds and Borges' 2005 debut, Silver City, often found her work filed under the Americana banner. But the time had come for Borges to explore different terrain, both as a writer and performer. The Stars Are Out is a soundtrack for Saturday nights, not Sunday mornings. "When I say I explored country music as much as possible, that doesn't mean I became perfect at it," she quickly qualifies. Borges just felt ready to take a break, until she had something new to say in that realm. And rock has always been her first love. "This is a style of music I've always listened to, and been really excited about."

Info
23-year-old triple threat DaniElle DeLaite has been on the stage in some capacity since the tender age of three-years-old. She has travailed through the trials and tribulations of failed recording contracts and unscrupulous agencies yet she has never given up on her dream of being a performer. “I have always been encouraged to pursue a career in music and there has always been the expectation that I would succeed even through the broken deals and failed promises,” says DeLaite. “This amazing encouragement and belief has been a wonderful support for me.” DeLaite’s dream became a reality when she won the Musicoz Australia wide competition for unsigned artists i98FM Listener's Choice Award at the age of 16. As a result she was invited to perform at the Entertainment Centre for the awards presentation that was broadcast on national television. After moving from her native township, Kiama to Sydney later that year, DeLaite bounced back from a dissolved recording contract and started a successful career as a fit model. While in Sydney she worked for nine major Australian designers as a house model and she also does catwalk and presenter work. Using the money she earned as a model, the singer/songwriter was able to take her career in her own hands by starting her company Lizard Ed Pty. Ltd. She funded recording sessions for her upcoming album and a video clip the single “Nothing to Wear.” The idea behind the single and video for “Nothing to Wear,” which are available on iTunes came about one night when the 23-year-old was getting ready to go out with a few friends. “It was nearly time for me to be picked up and I was sitting on my bed surrounded by lots of dresses, jeans, tops, jackets shoes and jewelry, thinking to myself, ‘what am I going to do? I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!’ I looked around the room and surveyed the giant mess on my bed, the floor, the chair and dresser and realized how absurd my statement was and how it was a moment many others had experienced as well

MySpace     FaceBook     Twitter

Info
Alexis was destined to be influenced by cultures from all over the world. She was born to a Cuban mom and a Colombian dad. As a child, she lived in Buenos Aires and Madridand Spanish was her first language. She started playing piano at an early age and says, “I grew up dancing ballet and flamenco, writing and making films. My parents really encouraged my individuality and creativity. But I didn’t sing a note until I was 20 years old. Can you imagine? Not a peep until I was 20.”

The family moved to New York when Alexis was 11. Her mother worked in the music industry, so she spent her adolescent years doing what a lot of teens would dream of; listening to music demos and going to concerts. Alexis soon fell in love with US Cinema. She says, “I learned to speak English by watching films. I became fascinated by how language was manipulated and began to notice how exquisitely music could be used to enhance the story. I started to think of music as the second language of the film. I knew from an early age that I wanted to do something with music and film.”

At the age of 18, Alexis packed her bags for Poughkeepsie, New York. She enjoyed her year at Vassar College, but Spain was calling to her. In Spain, she managed the rock band, Pop Sonic and learned how difficult it can be to make your mark in music. She was torn by the desire to become a musician herself and the knowledge of what a difficult road it can be. Unsure of what to do next, Alexis took a temporary job at the Rock in Rio festival in Brazil. The musicians she met inspired her so much, that she decided music was what she wanted to do with her life. She knew it was important to have a college degree too, so she enrolled at the prestigious London School of Economics—Mick Jagger’s alma mater--and emerged three years later with a degree in philosophy. During her stay in London, Alexis realized she was spending more time hitting the clubs, than hitting the books. Music was becoming more of a necessity in her life. She jumped at the chance to work with legendary producer Richard Nile, who has worked with Paul McCartney, Tina Turner and Ray Charles, among others. Nile was impressed with Foxe’s lyrics. Together, they produced the album eponoymouseponymous.

Info
Rachel Schain is an incredibly talented performer, drawing comparisons to Tori Amos, Joni Mitchell, and Dar Williams. Music has been in her heart for as long as she can recall. At age 12 she finally started taking voice lessons to hone in on the music magic you hear today. She performed in school choirs and synagogue whenever she could all through college, where she studied voice. While Rachel has been deeply involved in many aspects of the music industry such as promotions, on-air talent on a Long Island radio station, and good old fashioned fandom, performing music is where she felt she belonged. Rachel lives in Delaware with her husband and her two adorable pets. In addition to the three amazing artists listed above, Rachel counts Blues Traveler, Kate Miller-Heidke, Ben Folds, Rufus Wainwright, Elvis Costello, and OK Go as her greatest musical influences. Her debut EP, "Happy Happy" is due out in August.

Info
Struggle is a natural part of the creative process for many artists. For Shikhee, the one-woman army behind industrial act Android Lust, struggle became downright essential to the production of the fourth Android Lust album, The Human Animal. Not by choice, of course: Nearly a decade after debuting as the first one-woman industrial act, the Bangladeshi-born New Yorker found herself burnt out from balancing a music career with what some might call “real life.”

The process of making 2006’s Devour, Rise and Take Flight ws “a very trying period,” says Shikhee. “I was coming home from my job around 9 or 10, and then mixing till 2 or 3, only to get back up and get to work at 9 again. I was barely sleeping and losing weight.” Problems with her record label compounded her frustration; the heavy touring season that followed, prolonged it.

About the Band

Social Studies crafts intricate songs that combine angular indie rock and classic twee-pop. What distingishes the San Francsico-based group is their eclectic, complex song writing: unusual structures and mathy beats are tempered by soft edges and danceable casio hooks. Moody, defiant and hopeful, the lyrics celebrate duality through themes of discontent, violence, innocence, renewal, nostalgia, regret and joy. All these elements take shape in unpredictable, catchy songs that burrow into your consciousness and demand repeat listening and a critical reading between the lines. Combine this imaginative songwriting with a consistently high energy live show, and it is no surprise that Social Studies has generated a loyal fanbase and strong buzz in the SF Bay Area and beyond.


At the core of Social Studies are Natalia Rogovin on keyboards and vocals, and Michael Jirkovsky on drums. Natalia spent her youth on a commune in rural Oregon and trained to be a classical pianist, while Michael grew up in Chicago and cut his teeth on the Chicago punk scene. The two met in college in Santa Cruz and assembled Social Studies upon graduating and moving to the SF Bay Area a couple of years later.

Info Savoir Adore is an accident. We (Deidre Muro and Paul Hammer) never really intended to "start a band," yet ... Hi! Here we are. Phase 1: We met at NYU, but it took two years of friendship and going to each others' shows before we decided to collaborate on something. in January 2006, we went up to Paul's childhood home in Carmel, NY (referred to from now on as "upstate") and played around in his studio, ending up with an exploratory, improvisational instrumental track. Deidre wanted to have the track, Paul decided to make a MySpace page especially for it, and as necessity is the mother of invention, we needed a name. Savoir Adore was created then, though it didn't really exist yet. Phase 2: November 2006 - Unsatisfied with current situations, we challenged each other to a weekend upstate in which we would create and record a concept album. The Adventures of Mr. Pumpernickel and the Girl with Animals in her Throat was born, for us and our friends. Friends passed the recording to other friends... we were encouraged... we played a few live shows under the name "Les Frogs"... we started performing as Savoir Adore... Cantora Records encouraged us more... we went upstate another weekend and recorded the core of several more songs (most of which would end up on our full-length record)... shows shows shows... got a band together... record record ... write write.... Phase 3: And now we have an LP, In The Wooded Forest (released September 2009). Phase 4: And NOW - we're back in the studio, writing and recording...

BIOGRAPHICAL INFO: With her debut album, The Truth About Suffering, the sharp-witted chanteuse Jamie Leonhart enters the world of a new kind of diva, dynamic in emotional range and diverse in genre-crossing ability.

Jamie’s lithe and lyrical, three-and-a-half octave voice wraps around universe in which Kurt Weill and Laura Nyro meet Alice in Wonderland in a dimly-lit jazz club, inhabited by woodwinds, strings, vibraphone, and exotic instruments like the glockenspiel, mellotron and harmonium.

Born in New York City, the granddaughter of a cantor, and the youngest of three musically-curious children, Jamie began studying the violin at the age of three and singing soon after. Her inspiration to find her own voice began in her early teen years while singing in a vocal jazz ensemble, and at home foraging through her brother’s expansive eclectic record collection. After graduating with a degree in English Literature from Barnard College, Jamie continued her musical journey: through leading a ‘pop’ band, to singing as a soloist in the New York Metro Mass Gospel Choir to performing as a solo artist at prominent New York venues such as Rockwood Music Hall, the Living Room, and Joe’s Pub.

Jamie writes about many things: love, vulnerability, perspective, patience, and trust. “These songs talk about the truth … the truth about being uncomfortable, fitting in or not fitting in, and addressing and sometimes accepting flaws and faults,” Leonhart says. “A lot of the tunes explore that: the human condition in its most basic form. The more intimate and specific I am with my lyrics, the more I hear from people that a song really ‘spoke to them’ – that I captured the sentiment that they were struggling to put to words, or felt alone in. So something very personal and intimate becomes universal.”

Elizabeth Tryon has just released the album, From Elizabeth, and this stunning new work could come from no one other than Elizabeth Tryon. This is because it is unique – just like Tryon is. While Tryon’s music holds immediate appeal to fans of Josh Groban and Sarah Brightman, and their respective mixtures of pop and classical musical elements, Tryon – the artist – simply transcends any such easy categorization. After all, this is a woman that writes screenplays, has perfected multiple British accents -- which are in high demand for commercial voiceover work -- and is an actress in the highly competitive New York City theater scene.

Info

The words come through your speakers. Tense words. Sharp words. Hypnotic words. Words couched in grinding guitars and thudding drums, words thick with emotional desperation that also reveal the strangely paradoxical beauty in suffering; the diamonds in the cave, waiting to be mined. The words are those of Lauren O’Brien, one of the most exciting young poet-performers on the scene today. “I love rock ’n’ roll, the passion and rebelliousness of it,” says Lauren. “But I want to be part of it in my own way—I want to take poetry and rock it out.” Which is exactly what Lauren does—and then some—on Inconsequential Dream, her astonishing debut album. Take “Color Code,” a menacing, tension-rich rumination on love’s blurred lines of communication (“The colors in our code system / seem to keep switching on me”). Or the hard-hitting title track, which was inspired by the numerous mystic predictions about the year 2012 and the letting go of old ideas in order to live more fully in the new age (“Try to survive / it’s time / the quickening / the great purifying”). And then there’s “To Let Someone,” an acoustic guitar-laced allegory likening newfound spiritual energy to the acceptance of a former lover’s new mate (“To let someone / who is loved / by the one who used to love you / into your home / Well that is the thing/ that takes / the most courage”). Much like Lauren’s riveting live performances, Inconsequential Dream is a cathartic, emotionally cleansing experience that keeps the listener on the edge of their seat throughout—only to find them back in line when the last track stops, eager to sign up for another wild ride. Lauren’s own ride began in her suburban hometown of East Meadow, Long Island, where she found herself drawn to the arts and political activism. “I organized a protest against fur at the mall when I was in fifth grade,” says with a laugh. There was music and culture in the house; her father played guitar and her mother, a teacher, played piano and exposed her to literature and theater.

Info

The Nameless is Cathy's third album. Cathy was born in Dublin, and grew up in Monkstown. She found her way into music almost accidentally. She was signed by Parlophone's Regal Recordings after a batch of home-recorded demos caused a bit of a stir, and played her first live date shortly thereafter. Spirited away to a studio in Wales, she set to work on her debut album with producer Ben Hillier, who'd previously worked with Elbow and Blur. The result, Something Ilk, was a gorgeous collection of songs both sultry and sweet, with melodies that soared and guitars that buzzed, drawing comparisons to PJ Harvey and all those other female songwriters that female songwriters often seem to draw comparisons to. At any rate, most of these comparisons fell by the wayside with time, as Cathy managed to wriggle out of the indie-rock role that Parlophone had given her. She'd never felt comfortable making her voice heard in label discussions, and found that her debut was "very much other people's idea of what I should sound like." She found it difficult to perform the songs with confidence, and began to yearn for more independence. She took her time to make the follow-up, and made it on her terms. Tales of Silversleeve found its beginnings in some home demos Cathy recorded by herself, and brought with her, fully formed, into the studio. Over the three years since the release of Something Ilk, Cathy had learned how to have more faith in the songs themselves, and this time, with the help of engineer Liam Howe of Sneaker Pimps, the end result didn't stray far from her original vision. Hit singles like 'Sing for your Supper', and 'Reuben' ( a no 1 radio hit) had a depth and emotional touch that she'd been hiding, and there was a confidence in her live shows, too, that won her many new converts.

Artist Bio

ANALENA was born in the fall of 1997 and decided to exist as a band worthy of its name. The term ANALENA comes from the ancient Sanskrit, and translates as "like/by the fire". Too many great bands from this area succumbed to lack of enthusiasm, shortage of record labels and "infrastructure" in general, and last but not least, apathy. Members of ANALENA decided to be a different kind of band, the one that would keep the fire alive.

Although based in Zagreb, Croatia and rooted in punk rock ethos, ANALENA as a band was willing and determined to shatter many boundaries from the very beginning. It is symbolic that members of the band come from two countries, Croatia and Slovenia, and it comes as no surprise that during these 7 years neither listeners nor critics were able to strictly define and label their sound. In the case of this band, one man's hardcore is another man's noise is another man's punk. Diverse but steady, from bittersweet melodies and blistering hooks to pummeling and aggressive rhythms, ANALENA covers all the bases.

ANALENA worked hard from the start. Ana, Mijo, Miran, Six and Zet played towns many people wouldn't even be able to locate on the map, and beside playing all over Croatia, they also toured Europe a couple of times. They supported local scene through activism and providing help to many local

Info

As a mostly self taught musician, Isaboe has been composing songs since she picked up the guitar at 14. Her foray into musicianship was at around 5 yrs when her Dad taught her to play paradiddles on the snare drum of his old 50's Ludwig drumkit, complete with leather heads. Not long after, her Mum took all the kids to piano classes, but this came to an abrupt holt when their teacher moved to Africa. A host of other extra curricula activities like ballet classes and sports were starting to hog the attention. So for some years, aside from tinkering on the family piano or tuning into the radio, the musical inclination mostly lay dormant.

This all changed in highschool with music class on the timetable, and a whole new social life exposing another world of musical tastes and influences. Pulling out the old Ludgwig, drums became the most exciting indoor sport on the planet. Bashing away to The Police, a musical discovery from her  older sister's boyfriend, Isaboe's enthusiasm convinced Dad that it was time to buy a drumkit of her own (lest he might end up with a hole in his leather heads).

It was about this time she pulled out an old classical guitar from her sister's cupboard and started to learn from chord books and working out songs by ear. Not long after, she also took up saxophone lessons. Jazz was added to her growing repertoie of musical tastes.

Henceforth, music became her favourite pastime, and over the following years she wrote many songs, dabbling in garage bands and producing a few studio demos and many multi-track home recordings in the process. With a massive catalogue of songs of varying genres under her compositional belt, it was time to share her music with others.

About

“I’ve always been drawn to the darker sides of art and music,” says Little Invisibles vocalist Gina Degnars. “Even back when I started taking piano lessons, when I was seven years old—I always wanted to play the minor chords, not the major ones. There’s a powerful beauty in darkness, I think.”

So there is, from Chopin to Poe to Twilight. And it’s that same dark, powerful beauty that resonates throughout Little Invisibles’ brand of hauntingly melodic alternative pop. With Gina’s aching voice and poignant keyboard at the fore, the band’s epic, sweeping songs rise and swell like waves on a moonlit shore until they crash over the listener like a sea of Byronic heartbreak. Five of these impossibly moving songs—all composed, like the rest of the group’s music, by Gina—make up Closer, Little Invisibles’ stunning debut.

A dramatic unveiling if ever there was, Closer, which Gina co-produced, is a veritable jewel box of wide-screen modern rock. Within: jaw-dropping riches like the opener, “Breathless,” all ghostly piano, soaring vocals, and danceable trip-hop beats; the wounded-but-defiant lament “What Once Was,” the EP’s only piano-less track; and “Headrush,” a sultry duet with co-composer Lance Davis that pulses with heart-beating rhythms and gothic (small g) melodrama.

If it all sounds a bit Jane Eyre, well, then why not? Gina, who’s been through the relationship mill as much as any mature artist, maintains that she’s merely allowing her romantic angst to flower into songs that are beautiful and, ultimately, redemptive and uplifting for those who hear them. “When I’m happy I never go to the piano to write,” says Gina, who holds a bachelor’s degree in piano performance and studied at Boston’s Berklee College of Music. “I write first and foremost from emotion, and after a breakup you never have to look far for inspiration. But even then there usually ends up being an element of hope in my songs.”

Artist Bio

Marisa and Kelly grew up together on Anna Maria Island off the coast of Florida. They met in Mrs. Brockway's 2nd grade class and have been besties ever since. The girls spent their time having pancakes on the beach, singing into a tape recorder and bringing boys to the haunted house after school to make out. Meanwhile, on the other side of Florida, Rikky was growing up and doing naughty things like making out with girls and skipping school, things unbecoming of a young man whose given name was Richard Francis Walsh IV.

Marisa and Kelly met Rikky in college, where he was playing in a punk band and still skipping school. The ladies took their very first keyboard course, "keyboard 101 for non-music majors" where they proved to be the worst players in the class. It was with this encouragement that shortly thereafter, Marisa and Kelly moved to New York City and started writing songs together in a band called The Besties. Rikky moved to New York and joined the party, and The Besties' trademark sound started to take shape. They didn't know any drummers, hence the keyboard drums. At first they were too scared to sing alone, hence the vocal harmonies.

The Besties live together in an old knitting factory in Brooklyn. A team of friends came together in true DIY spirit to create the release. One friend offered studio time, photographer Leah Morgan turned the loft into a photo shoot and Wes Duvall headed up the art direction. The recording was mixed by The Besties, with help from fellow musician Jayme Guokas from The Snow Fairies.

Info
3 KISSES jumps from one high energy style to another with traces of just about every cool female-fronted rock band of the last 20 years. The band has been compared to an array of artists including the Cranberries, Luscious Jackson, the Breeders, Joan Jett, the Buzzcocks, Letters to Cleo, Wendy O. Williams, Blondie, the Ramones and everything in between. They have coined the phrase ‘Texas Party Punk’ to describe their music. 3 KISSES’ live performance has been called ‘freakin’ explosive’ and lead singer/guitarist Tish Meeks has been referred to as ‘a ball of fire on stage.’ Tish launched 3 KISSES in Austin, TX, in January 2004 and the band has since performed over 350 live shows for over 300,000 people. Joey Smostek (lead guitar), Sam Hines (bass) and Andy Wood (drums) complete the recipe for 3 KISSES’ punkish ‘cuddle-angst’ with a positive, party vibe.

Info
ANEMO began life in September 2002 when Kingsley Sage was auditioning singers for a song writing and recording project. The results had been universally disappointing (to put it mildly), until at the 11th hour a former actress and talented vocalist called Hazelle Woodhurst entered the picture. The two immediately got on well, with their shared love of different types of music and, of course, a good cup of tea. The two set to work on penning a number of songs that would later become the basis of the ANEMO's first album. They decided that the project needed a rock edge, and to that end guitarist Matt Palmer was added to the mix.

After countless evenings at the band's basement studio in Brighton, the three had amassed an impressive collection of pop-meets-rock-meets-electronica tracks. At this point, the group took on the name ANEMO a word that means "changing forms", to reflect the blend of styles and influences that was brought to the music. The strong vocal melodies and distinctive style caught the attention of Trebor Lloyd, CEO of New York-based upcoming independent record label, City Canyons. In summer 2005 ANEMO signed a 3 album record contract and began to record the final tracks for their first album

I'm a full time Nichiren Daishonin Buddhist. It's the mainstay of my life. The rythym of my music.Daisaku Ikeda of Soka Gakkai International is my main influence. The idea of the human revolution as a way to change the world. Each of us have the power!!!Nam Myoho Renge Kyo. I take my cues from my environment. Paint a musical picture of what i see or hear or feel. When beat reflects the melody, reflects the harmony, reflects the lyrics, reflecting whatever instrument introduced,thats a perfect song for me. Ego has to be forgotten in the quest for a moving piece of work. To be able to portray emotion through rythym and melody is every musicians goal. Oh I hope I don't sound too wanky, its how I see music o;) Kate Bush, Bjork, Peter Gabriel, Otis Redding, Candy Staton,Peaches,Iggy Pop,The Rolling Stones,Outcast, Gorillaz,Jill Scott,Di Angelo,Faithless,Prince,The Roots,Roni Size,De La Soul, Blondie.......wow it's hard to slim it down!

Info
Lily Sparks is a fun, sexy rock band in the vein of Heart and Pink, that delivers pure excitement. Check out the website, come to a show and experience it for yourself!
First timers are never quite sure what to expect when they see a Lily Sparks show but after a few seconds it’s pretty clear: They rock. Flanked by glitter guitars that alternate between crunch and wail, the singer’s got a set of pipes that can go from fragility to fury in a heartbeat. These girls play hard-rocking, toe-tapping songs that’ll make you want to shout and sing along.

Lead vocalist Niamh (pronounced “neev”) was born to sing. As a child in Ireland she sang traditional Irish songs, perfomed in choral groups and played lead roles in musical theater. She’s classically trained in voice and piano. She’s probably taller than you. But don’t let that scare you…

Nikki 7 plays solid rhythm and inventive leads. She studied music and recording engineering at Berklee before settling in the Big Apple. Then she took the town by storm as the guitarist for several outrageous bands in including Cherry Red, Soap Opera Villain, Fluffy, and The Mynks. She probably has more tattoos than you. But don’t let that scare you…

KG* learned the guitar by joining a punk band. Later she ventured into alternative rock while trying to complete a graduate degree in neuroscience. Needless to say, she chose rock over brain surgery. She probably has more guitars than you. But don’t let that scare you…

Info

 "I didn't do this record the rock'n'roll boy way…it's my own sound," says Kelley Ryan.

Note the emphasis there—on the word "boy." Kelley Ryan, the front-woman for the California band astroPuppees and a go-to songwriter and collaborator (most recently on Marshall Crenshaw's Jaggedland), took a decidedly different approach to recording her first record under her own name. Twist is an album told from the female perspective; a theme encompassing everything from the lyrics to the instruments to the album's many moods.

"I had this idea: the record was only going to be about girls, be it the daughter I never had, a heroine of my mine, my grandmother or a woman who lived near me in Ireland," says Kelley. "It's all from the feminine perspective. Even in the music – there's no electric guitars, it's just acoustic and loops and strings. I mean, I love three-minute electric-guitar pop songs, but I wanted to create something more comfortable for me and stay in that mood."

But don't get the wrong idea – Twist isn't a polarizing record, a long lost Lilith Fair soundtrack or an angry feminine response a la Exile in Guyville. It's a gutsy record with ambitious production, smart collaborations (with the likes of producer Don Dixon (R.E.M., Smithereens), legendary arranger Van Dyke Parks and singer / songwriter Marti Jones), and a personal touch and warmth that crosses all musical boundaries. If anything, the album is reminiscent of something like Beck's Sea Change…which, not so coincidentally, is represented here by a cover of "Lost Cause" (more on that in a minute).

Info

Formed by the association of singer Amélie Laflamme and musician/songwriter François Dufault, The Blue Seeds is completed by Marc Chartrain on drums, Martin Farmer on bass, Roger Miron on lead guitar and Eric Rathe on keys. Produced by François Dufault, the new album was recorded in Montreal (Canada) at Masterkut Studio and in Faenza (Italy) with the collaboration of Dustin O’Halloran (Marie-Antoinette Soundtrack, Sofia Coppola) from the American band The Devics. Recorded with an “indie” sensibility, the 11 songs comprised on the record reveal rich arrangements that include a wide variety of instruments ranging from electric guitars to analog keyboards, mellotron and vibraphone. The result is one that is unique and original. Cinematic and very evocative, each song leads the listeners into a reverie as if they were part of a fictional road movie. On stage, the band delivers an outstanding performance, pushing the songs to their fullest while leaving the audience into a daydream and sometimes stunned by the energy displayed by the musicians.

Bio
The Dials were born when co-lead vocalists Rebecca Crawford (bass) and Patti Gran (guitar) simultaneously saved each other from their lingering and daunting search through the Chicago musician ads back in 2002. Upon meeting, an instant friendship and kinetic chemistry developed between the two as they played their prior projects for each other and discussed their mutual adoration of 60's girl-groups and 80's power pop. With the addition of a keyboardist and a drummer, they played their first show almost before they even agreed on a band name.

A few months, a drummer, and a keyboardist later, Crawford and Gran found themselves with half of the original line-up, but a quickly growing loyal fan base surrounding them. So with determination fueling their fire, they hit the pavement and recruited friend and major Dials fan Emily Dennison. Trading in her ivories for a farfisa, Dennison brought her unique ‘Beethoven-gone-Devo' style to their sound. With the addition of a new drummer almost exactly at the same time, the band was back in action and recorded and released their Sick Times EP that winter 2003. Not only did the local press praise the EP, but national media also took notice of the Dials.

Info

Vonne is able to assert her vibrant personality within a diversity of musical and thematic modes offering "something for everyone" thanks to a lifelong immersion within a universe of music. One of 10 offspring of a drummer father of Mexican descent and a singing and guitar playing Spanish mother, she grew up in a household where "music was always a part of our lives." Her mother would quell the brood and instill them with a harmonic sense by leading them in Spanish folk songs from an early age, while also treating them to afternoons at the cinema enjoying MGM and Broadway musicals.

By her early teens, Vonne was also enjoying musical input from the various sounds and styles found within her siblings' record collections. But it was artists with a particularly Texan mix such as Lone Star heroes Stevie Ray Vaughan and Joe Ely that captured her imagination. After attending her first concert by Chris Isaak sideman Johnny Reno and his Sax Maniacs, Vonne was captured by the allure of performing onstage. Then when one of her brothers brought home an album by Chicano new wave rockers The Cruzados, she discovered a modern style that reflected her identity. " They sang in English and Spanish, which made us proud of our heritage," she recalls.

Moving to New York City to pursue her creative ambitions, Vonne landed a gig singing and then also playing bass in Mick & The Maelstroms, a hard-working pop-rock band on the Big Apple club circuit. By 1996, she had the confidence in her abilities to start penning songs that reflected her own musical and cultural experiences, often collaborating with her then boyfriend and now husband, Robert LaRoche from the Virgin recording act The Sighs. Hooking up with lead guitarist Kirk Brewster, a Texas transplant from the legendary Dallas band The Werewolves, Vonne formed a band that could deliver her Lone Star style with New York City intensity.

Info

Once upon a time there was a band. Before that, there were merely five musical folk with a shared love of fruit, tea, fun and a jaunty tune, but the fates and these shared loves brought them together. In time, ideas were scribbled, the kettle worked almost as hard as their strange musical minds, many curvy yellow fruits were eaten, and the first songs were born. These were the Banana Sessions, and so it began…

The Banana Sessions sing songs of sunshine, caterpillars, brews, Buckfast, pirates and stranger encounters, plus a few unconventional interpretations of classics too (one crowd favourite being 90s techno classic No Limit by 2Unlimited). Their style is not one easily described, but they have been described in their time as folky, proggy, breezy, bouncy, jazzy, quirky, and ‘unashamedly good fun’. Whatever genre they may be, the band have rapidly gained a reputation as purveyors of quality musicianship with equal quantities of humour in Edinburgh and beyond.

Info

Antonia is a singer/songwriter born in the awe-inspiring setting of the Shetland Islands. In her second year of Uni she took the step to buy a guitar and worked through open mic nights and busking the cobbled and famous Royal Mile, honing her skills and testing out new styles before breaking into the ....Edinburgh.... gig scene. Playing in venues such as Henry Cellar Bar, Bannermans and The Ark as well as a stint in Glasgow's Liquid Ship, Antonia caught the performing bug and started to develop her own blend of folk/rock/pop with a large focus on creative lyrics.
Now back in Shetland Antonia has supported the likes of Chris Helme (former front man of The Seahorses) and Mark Morriss (of Bluetones fame). Now having released her debut album “Baliamo” she is on the verge of recording and releasing a second, more adventurous offering, as well as planning a tour of the ....UK.... for late summer 2010. So for lyrically minded acoustic tunes that are rough around the edges and born from a love of all things musical, give it a listen!
“In a world where there are more singer-songwriters than there are cappuccinos sold in Starbucks, having a little something extra is vital. Antonia has confidence, great tunes and a sparkle that should see her do well.”  - Mike Riddel

KaiserCartel are the dynamic duo of Courtney Kaiser & Benjamin Cartel. Each previously leaders of their own indie bands, they met on March 4th four years ago and formed KaiserCartel when they joined forces to tour the country that summer.  They self-released an EP (Double Standard) and toured throughout the US and UK on their own before signing to bluhammock music late last year. March Forth, their debut album – was produced by Matt Hales (aka aqualung) and mixed by Matt and Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros) - and is full of low-fi, harmony-heavy, bittersweet songs full of charm. KaiserCartel is currently on tour and intend to stay there until they’ve played for all of you.  Here’s what 411mania.com has to say about the duo: "While KaiserCartel look like a couple of emo kids who have lost their way don’t be deceived, they certainly bring their own brand sunshine with them and that reflected light is as warm and inviting as anything you'll find.. A fantastic collection of songs from two people that know how to play with each other and for each other. My album of the year so far."

Info

Betty Wright (born December 21, 1953, in Miami, Florida) is a soul and R&B singer, who has influenced a generation of female singer-songwriters. The hottest members of the hip hop generation (including Tupac, DMX, and Li'l Wayne) have sampled some of her more famous material. Born singing gospel with family group the Echoes of Joy, Wright began switching to R&B music in 1965 when she was only 11. In 1968, she released her first album, My First Time Around, at the age of 15, and scored her first hit, "Girls Can’t Do What Guys Can Do". But it was not until the end of 1971 that Wright’s most successful phase of her career took place. The song, "Clean Up Woman", became a Top 5 pop and R&B hit, and would later influence a remix of Mary J. Blige’s "Real Love" single with the sample of its guitar riffs; R&B girl group trio SWV’s "I’m So Into You" also featured a sample from "Clean Up Woman," as did Afrika Bambaataa’s song "Zulu War Chant", and Sublime’s "Get Out!" remix. Beyonce has sampled "Girls Can’t Do What The Guys Do" for her hit "Upgrade U". In 1974, Wright scored big with the songs "Tonight is the Night" (about a real-life love affair that happened with Wright when she was a teenager) and "Where is the Love" (which won her a Grammy for Best R&B Song). In the early 1980s, she founded her own record label, Ms. B Records, and in 1988 made music history by being the first woman to have a gold record on her own label, with the release of Mother Wit, which featured two of her biggest hits in years, "No Pain No Gain" and the "After The Pain." On both songs, Wright displays her powerful upper register capabilities and seven-octave range. By 2001 a compilation album The Very Best of Betty Wright was released, along with her first studio album for several years, Fit for a King. Still recording music to this day, she now mentors several young singers, and has done vocal production for the likes of Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez and Joss Stone. She has also been seen on MTV as part of Diddy's hit series Making the Band.
This year she struck gold again when "Baby" (her smash duet with Angie Stone) was nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best R&B Performance By A Duo or Group.
For the first time ever Betty Wright has licensed digital distribution of her Ms. B Records catalog. The first reissues, Mother Wit and Fit For A King, will be available in early 2009 at digital retailers worldwide.

from RexRecords

Info

At the helm is singer/guitarist /songwriter Jessie Murphy- a critically acclaimed veteran of the NYC anti-folk scene. In 2008, while working on her Masters Degree in Music at Columbia University, she met and befriended Marcia Wood (Wurlitzer, flute, clarinet, harmonica, pan pipes and vocals) and Amy Wood (horn, cajon/percussion, flute, melodica, autoharp and vocals). Jessie, Marcia, and Amy are all NYC music teachers(just in case the plethora of musical instruments didn’t tip you off).

Amy recalls “from the first time the three of us played together, it was just easy, noticeably so”. Marcia says, “When I heard Jessie’s lyrics, it impacted my playing, it was easy to picture sounds when I was working with her.” Jessie states proudly, “We had that magic thing right away, the right vibe and the right sound. We knew very quickly that we were a band.”And so The Woods were born. Sessions soon began for the trio’s debut album, Eight Belles. The first song “When I Am A Horse Again” is a lament to that perfect day so long ago. It is a sound out of time, classical performers playing pop forms, creating a swirling and mystical atmosphere that perfectly supports the lyrics.

So far girls have toured the UK (where they were featured on Cambridge University Radio) and have played shows from Ithaca NY to Los Angeles CA. Jessie Murphy In The Woods are preparing to release their debut album, Eight Belles, in late Fall of 2009. The album is a gorgeous showcase for the players, emotionally affecting without becoming cloying or overly sweet. The final and title track of the album, 8 Belles, is a eulogy to a filly who died on the racetrack during 2008’s Kentucky Derby. In between are nine other songs about life, love, and horses.

Jessie Murphy In The Woods has become a world unto themselves. Jessie enthuses, “The more time we spend and sing together, the more unified we become, and the more we have to give in our performances. We’re discovering the realm of our music as it happens.” Marcia says, “There’s a chamber like quality to our shows, a shared sense of intimacy.” On Eight Belles, you hear the sounds and magic of a band coming together. If their music sounds like a fairy tale, it’s fitting, for it's in its own glorious place and time. Now saddle up and ride along, it’s a long way to forever.

Biography

The Hermit’s story is one of musical evolution and creative growth. Three albums and multiple tours stretching across almost a decade for founder Hamish Thomson have seen The Hermit’s sound change and evolve, whilst bonds with trusted band-mates Jon Frederiksen (bass), Robert Mitchell (keyboards), and Duane Murrin (guitars) have been strengthened and new vocalist Red welcomed into the fold.

Founded in the year 2000 by Vancouver drummer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Thomson, The Hermit began life as a solo electronic project, so called because of the reclusive life Thomson led during the creation of his debut album “Flying out of Solitude”. A successful independent release led to multiple West Coast Music Award nominations and a label deal with Nettwerk Records.

The five members of The Hermit now stand together stronger than ever, fortified by the creative journey with all of its unexpected twists and turns. The Hermit stands proud as a solo studio project that grew into an award-winning band. With the release of Turn Up (The Stereo) - a new album featuring vocalists from the past and present – The Hermit simultaneously marks the end of one journey and embraces a new beginning.

Info

In 2005 Renée, Naemi and Teresa started playing together as Liechtenstein. Influenced by British 80s bands like Talulah Gosh, Dolly Mixture, Mo-Dettes, Girls At Our Best and Shop Assistants, they released their debut 7” single “Stalking Skills” on Fraction Discs in 2007. The title track made quite a buzz in the indiepop world and a frequent gigging around in Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Germany and United Kingdom followed. Around that time Elin joined the band on drums. In the summer of 2008 second guitarist and vocalist Teresa left the band and the others continued as a three piece.

In the autumn 2008 Fraction Discs released their second 7” single “Apathy”, and a video was made for the flipside “Security By Design”. “Apathy” showed a new diversity with its gorgeous vocal harmonies over soft pop melodies. It sounds all cosy, yet this is an angry protest songs. It’s songs like these that have gained Liechtenstein a true fan base, bringing back that heavenly pop sound from back then …and at the same time commenting upon the very time we’re living in.

A third single was released in February 2009, this time a three track CDR on Drill Building. Starting rapidly, paying a musical tribute to Talulah Gosh, over a shoegazey dystopia to a 48 second post punk song, you start to get the idea of a Liechtenstein album: filled with Pop melodies, elegantly arranged vocal harmonies – and a bundle of short story observations.

In May 2009 their album "Survival Strategies In A Modern World" was released on Fraction Discs and Slumberland (US) on CD and 10".

Good news!
 
I've made the final 5 in the Folk-Jazz-Classical-World music category (or what I like to call the "everyone-we-couldn't-pigeon-hole-into-the-'pop'-'rock'-'dance'-or-'alternative'-categories" category).
 
Now I know you all automatically switch off when someone sends round a please-vote-for-me type email, so like, don't vote....
 
Unless you want to.
 
(Do you see what I did there? Bit of reverse psychology and all...)

More On This Album

Info
From the very start, the concept was, in stark contrast to the rest of the Canadian scene during that ‘Nickelback moment‘, unashamedly and unapologetically POP. Dan explains, “I’d like to write songs that at least I can remember. And I’m very bad at remembering melodies and the lyrics, so it needs to be memorable!”

Through a few strokes of fortune, their first public appearances were baptisms of fire in the deep end of concert-dom. Their second-ever show was supporting New Order at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom, followed by a US tour supporting Duran Duran. All after recording just 2 songs in their basement.

Dragonette eventually signed a record deal, and, like fellow Canadians Peaches (who they know) and Gonzales (with whom Dan went to school), headed for Europe. The band decamped to London with Joel and hooked up with guitarist Will (the British quarter of Dragonette), where they honed their small but perfectly-formed, all-killer-no-filler repertoire. Ruthless perfectionists, they explain that “We don’t have any spare songs. We write songs till they’re finished, then we kill off other ones. It’s not like we picked 10 out of a possible 20 for the album.”

The results are a dirty, hook-heavy, electropop album called Galore with monsters like “I Get Around” and “Competition”, depicting a world of guilt-free pleasure mixed with an 80s party prowess. Martina isn’t interested in writing, she says, “songs to get depressed to.” As Dan puts it, “It’s hard enough working on songs that are *fun*. I can’t even imagine what it‘s like working on miserable material…” The record has received praise from such diverse sources as the NME. UK dailies the Observer, Times and Guardian, online pop bible popjustice, and has garnered multiple mentions from Perez Hilton (whose showcase the band performed at during last year’s SXSW).

Biography

Originally from Switzerland, Aurah's musical journal of their quest to experiecne life's alchemy.
Marc Dold and Judith Martin's picturesque, electronic and haunting music has found it's way into numerous TV-shows and feature films. They have recently also written film scores for feature and shorts.

Emotional guitar sounds and scintilating vocal arrangements are part of the essence of music that is as much pop as transcendental and electronic. The twin sound clouds of film scores and songs reflect their personal journey. Each one of their albums has a completely unique sound and purpose. As a producer, Dold has given both Enya and Nelly Furtado number one hits, has worked with Paul Van Dykl, Cindy Lauper and others...
more of Marc at www.marcdold.com

After Aurah's release SONGS OF THE ALCHEMIST Martin took pen and paper on the grassy knolls of Griffith Park in Los Angeles and began writing KISMET. The trippie sounds share the reflective essence being both intimate and universal.

Aurah went on to compose the film score for the award-winning feature film Loving Annabelle and various short films. They're songs are also heard on Little Miss Sunshine and Blood Diamond. Logically...their latest CD ETHEREA BOREALIS is a the merging of soaring, psychedelic soundscapes and songs.

"Tallulah Rendall ’lay me down’ (transducer). Must take some beating being told you have a ’wonderful voice’ by none other than Shirley Bassey - with that kind of acclaim you’d suspect most artists would happily retire and spend the ensuing years solely trading on that moment sealing morsel. Not Tallulah Rendall this London based songstress has set up her own label so as to keep her music out of the thumb twiddling unit chasing bandwagon jumping controlling freaks that you and I lovingly refer to as major labels.

A handful of releases already in the hands of those of the clued up record buying cognoscenti and an album in the shape of ’Libellus’ currently doing the rounds which we suspect we’ll have to nail as our own just so that we can get a peaceful nights sleep safe in the knowledge that its within easy reach of our hi-fi. Clearly freefalling in the vapour trails left by the likes of Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond) and Regina Spektor, Rendall is clearly touched with a rare and exquisite sense of artistry, both playfully tender and primed with a sense of theatre and classicism much like a youthful Kate Bush, ’lay me down’ is clipped with an eerie enchantment, both demurring and demanding yet spellbinding and sultry, the torch like treatments throughout abridged and sweetly countered by an innate passion that swirls with a subtle though hitherto intoxicating tide rushing dramatic tension - and apologies for ruining the mood so far but it just has to be said - its as horny as hell.Those wanting to hear more - and we strongly suspect you do want more - are advised to head forthwith over to www.myspace.com/tallulahrendall and fill your boots with the near divinely siren-esque ethereal folk rocking ’only you’.

Info

The Girlas consist of 3 women working together to perform original music with a mix of folk, acoustic, blues, soul, and bluegrass. Of these women are:

Candy Diaz Yasuda: a singer/song writer with a penchant for old torch jazz
Carly Smith: a singer/song writer with a heavy background in bluegrass as well as the daughter of reknown bluegrass musician Ty Smith
Kelli Heath: a singer/song writer with amazing talent for guitar composition, slack key, and witty lyrics.

Under the collective title, The Girlas, Kelli, Candy, & Carly began collaborating amongst one another to create a genre of music that incorporates all aspects of their individual skill.

The debut release of “Now of Never” was met with much appreciated enthusiam. Jamie Winnpenny of the Honolulu Weekly wrote, “Their lyrical content is poignant rather than preachy, their instrumental prowess is informed rather than forced and their harmonies are inspired.” Wayne Harada of the Honolulu Advertiser said, “"The harmonies are sweet; the lingering passions sweeter. Think Na Leo with attitude and soul. The Girlas are great because they're both unpredictable and prolific." John Berger of the Star Bulletin had this to say, “Each introspective composition seems more exquisite than the other. Whether they're singing of heartbreak, troubled relationships or an enigmatic encounter with angels, the Girlas are an enchanting discovery for fans of smooth pop music.”

Artist Bio

Best Crisis Ever, the new album from trans-continental ApSci (pronounced APP-sigh), was begun in a Brooklyn apartment overlooking a coffee factory in 2006, and finished in a Sydney apartment by the beach in 2008. While 2005’s Thanks for Asking was a collabo-rich hip-hop-electro diary with guests spanning from indie-rap pinch hitters Mr. Lif and Pigeon John to the bandleaders of TV On The Radio and Antibalas, the new record has been executed almost entirely by the duo, Australian-Filipina Dana Diaz-Tutaan and the Irish-Italian, Bronx-born Raphael LaMotta. It’s a louder, catchier and more expansive take on ApSci’s unique combination of electro, hip-hop and quirky pop, relying heavier on songwriting and a combination of vintage drum machine sounds, synths and guitars. It’s equal parts New York bravado and Australian charm, reflecting the respective hometowns of each, and how the duo, despite the nearly opposite lifestyle and pace of the cities, have managed to comfortably straddle both for nearly a decade.

A little history: the Iate 90s, summertime in New York. Nuyorican Poet’s Cafe, Rocksteady Reunion, Baby Jupiter were the places that mattered to a devoted scene. Solesides, Company Flow, Mike Ladd and Antipop Consortium were underground brainiac heroes. Open mics and street cyphers were a vibrant and common occurrence in every borough, and people came from all over the world to experience the city’s late-era hip-hop renaissance.

It was in this context that Dana, who was then visiting New York, met Raphael. Although their fi rst encounter wasn’t exactly congenial (“I was in a weird mood,” Ra explains. “He was rude,” Dana counters), they were a part of a tight circle of performers and often found themselves on the same bill, or in the same crowd, or freestyling on the same corners. Soon studio time was booked, pager numbers were exchanged, and before long they were collaborators, writing and recording their own unique material.

MainSite     MySpace

Get the music from iTunes or AmazonMp3

Info
Raised only a few streets from the legendary Van Morrison (although, admittedly several decades later), Elle Stevenson is finally receiving recognition in the Northern Irish music scene and, having won a showcase on the music investment website 'Slicethepie.com', which secured her £15,000 to record her long-awaited debut album, it looks like she's all set to grace more than just the local scene with her talent.... 

At the centre of the music is her voice - best described by the terms "fragile", "ethereal" and "haunting" - which provides an apt vehicle for songs which betray a rare kind of honesty. Stevenson certainly doesn't shy away from wearing her heart on her sleeve and her songs have, at times, been described as "lyrically raw". Yet, they are so carefully framed by those trademark cascading piano lines that the incongruity of the music and lyrics merely draw the listener to the place where catharsis and redemption finally meet. 

While comparisons to other artists reveal little about Elle's unique direction, she does list an impressive range of influences of artists whom she admires, including the likes of: Suzanne Vega, Justin Currie, Crowded House, the Dixie Chicks, Lucinda Williams, Patty Griffin, Alanis Morisette, Sarah McLachlan, Gillian Welch, Tracy Chapman, Angie Stevens, Sheryl Crow, Ryan Adams, Bill Mallonee, Bryan Adams, Coldplay, Rascal Flatts, Radiohead, Kings of Leon, Editors, The Fray, OneRepublic, The Beautiful South; not to mention a few you might not expect, such as Shirley Bassey and Take That!

To date, Elle has supported many artists on the local Irish music scene, as well as those of international acclaim, such as guitar legends Rodrigo y Gabriela and pop/soul diva, Beverley Knight. With the fast-approaching release date for her debut album, however, Elle is unlikely to be the supporting artist for much longer and the expectation is that it won't be long before you're hearing a lot, lot more from this talented lady....

Elle's debut album "Coming Around" goes on general release Monday 21st September 2009.

Info
Sara Tavares was only 16 years old when she won two of Portugals most prestigious TV music contests. Born out second generation Cape Verdian immigrants, Sara grew up between two cultures. Initially known as a singer and composer of Gospel, Funk and Soul, she gradually incorporated more African music in her compositions. Her second album Mi Ma B, produced by Parisian Lokua Kanza, reached gold in Portugal and was a mix of African rhythms and melodic pop songs. After a long wait of five years, finally her new album Balance was released in February 2006. On this record, produced by Sara herself, she wrote and composed all the songs and played many of the instruments. Balance is a beautiful record on which Sara shows to be a very talented contemporary singer/song writer, who has managed to combine in a subtle and honest way contemporary music with her African roots.

Info
Sweet as apple-pie pop, from Stockholm high school girls, led by a pounding Hammond organ. These four tracks emulate some of the true twee pop greats such as Bis and Girlfrendo. “Those Dancing Days”, the northern soul inspired song which the band are named after, could easily fit onto the soundtrack of Austin Powers. “Hitten,” possibly the band’s signature tune is a fizzy pop number which will have you singing along instantly. If this band are not the next big thing I am willing to bet my life savings that one of the members of this group will feature on a Top Twenty selling Swedish album within the next five years.

Info
SUNSOMA are one of those bands that need a string of adjectives to best describe their music- they truly have a sound that’s all their own, and yet are not so left of the field that you can’t get a firm grasp on their catchy, hooky tunes. O.K here come the adjectives: Alternative/Indie/Rock/Pop-esque - Yep that should cover it.

The band was originally formed 6/7 years ago by Mel and for those with an appetite for all things cultural, the band name comes from a Greek word meaning ‘Unity’. In true Rock ‘n’ Roll style Sunsoma has endured a healthy number of line up changes but their resolve to keep pushing on has never diminished. “ Stuff happens and you’ve got two choices- winge or go with it! “ says Mel “ music is the most amazing art form on the entire planet and we just love what we do “

Last October the band weathered one such change, and found themselves ‘going with it’ as they swiftly downsized into the compact yet fully in tact 3 piece that they are today. Having shaken the dust and with creativity levels positively thriving, these three have, it seems, become more tight knit than a woollen wetsuit.

Info
When you see Amanda Duncan in person, it's easy to think, "How does all that sound come out of that little body?" Never quite blessed with height, Amanda was blessed with one roaring set of pipes. And a knack for writing lyrics so honest, they cut right to the core of her audience.

After borrowing her uncle's guitar for a brief stint in high school, she soon realized that this whole music thing might just be more than a fling. She began writing songs about silly things at first, but as her musical understanding grew, so did her desire to really connect with people. She realized that if she was feeling strongly enough to dignify a situation with a song there must be others who could relate and benefit from hearing their own story. "There are so many songs out there that are reflective of negative issues of people's lives. I want to connect with the positive."

A primarily self-taught musician, she plays guitar, hand percussion, and most uncommonly, the mandolin. For those listeners looking for something refreshing, Amanda delivers. She infuses the pop country structure with a folkier sound than most current artists. But what really sets her apart from the rest is her dedication to simplicity and her traditionally acoustic sound, reminicent of the bluegrass style.

Bio
Girl Activity melds the in-your-face, buzz-saw guitar, and driving rhythms of the Foo Fighters sound with the understated, vulnerability of the vocal stylings of Liz Phair and influential indie pop group Belly. The group conveys a relaxed, plug-in-the-amp-and-let's-play attitude. Lead singer and rhythm guitarist Jessie Ambriz heads up an eclectic bunch with roots in soul, R&B, rock and heavy metal. The very talented Nick Jaffe, also of the group Soul People, plays lead guitar. His dynamic presence contributes to the band's enthusiastic range of the rock-n-roll genre. Alyson Carrel, who was a member of Popcanon, keeps it tight and in the pocket on bass. Nina Talia, formerly of the soul-funk band Thrillhouse Collective, lays down the beats on the drums and shares song-writing credit along with Jessie.

Girl Activity credits its song-writing style to influences such as the Ramones, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, the Muffs, and the alternative rock scene of the '90s. The songs are laced with catchy hooks and melodies that you'll find yourself humming after listening.

The band has just finished their first record, Broken Hearts and Righteous Anger. Truly a labor of love, the album was written, performed, recorded, mixed and produced by the founders of Girl Activity, Nina and Jessie. Live performances consist mainly of material from this record, along with new and driving singles, soon to be released

INfo
Jessie Grace is a singer/songwriter from South Bucks, who began her life in music studying classical piano. She went on to teach herself guitar and it was then that she began to write songs. Her main musical influences include Radiohead, Raconteurs, Nirvana, Bjork and PJ Harvey and she has incorporated all of these influences into her debut album ‘Asleep on the Good Foot’, produced by Dave Draper. It has so far been very well received; gaining praise from local media, both on radio and online. Tracks from the album have been broadcast on several ‘BBC Introducing’ shows, (Three Counties, BBC Oxford, and BBC Berks) with opening track ‘Beautiful’ being aired nationally on Tom Robinson’s ‘Introducing’ programme on BBC6. In a recent review of the record, online music reviewer Toxic Pete sums her style up:....................................................................................................... “… Her music sits somewhere between the nu-folk of K T Tunstall and some of the more angularly jazzy Joni Mitchell works. Add to that a very commercial sounding vocal delivery; something again between Tunstall, Judie Tzuke and Dido and you've got yourselves a very viable, workmanlike piece of work! Jessie Grace keeps this work very fluid, it's continually changing, evolving; just when you think you've got her sorted and labelled she hits you with something that refuses to be pigeonholed and you have to start re-thinking your initial assessment… if Jessie Grace can get the promotional support she deserves, this lady will be a name and a force to contend with.”......................................... Elsewhere on the web, Colin MacKinnon from Oxfordbands.com comments:................................................................................................... “‘Asleep on the Good Foot’ is an excellent debut from a really promising talent. A song like ‘L.O.V. E.’ is clinching proof of how good Grace can be, bringing it all together: smart songwriting, sympathetic production and a delectable voice. And she’s young and gorgeous. Don’t you just hate her?”.......................................................................................................... .........................................................................................................Jessie has previously been involved in several band projects and is now focussing on making it as a solo artist. She hopes ‘Asleep on the Good Foot’ represents a strong beginning to a long career producing world-class music.

MySpace

Info

Melodee Rockmore is not your ordinary singer-songwriter, nor is she a ‘wannabe-popstar,’ she is a performer with a passion. Born in the UK to a Cypriot family, she was brought up in a quiet town in Hampshire where the closest thing to the Mediterranean is Costa Coffee.
Using the stage as an outlet for her frustrations and emotions, she has shown the drive and ability to achieve big things by already gaining airplay and press in the UK, USA, and across Europe…including a front cover spread in the Cyprus Daily Mail ‘Seven’ – a space previously occupied by Angelina Jolie and Cameron Diaz.

Combining her cultural routes with her love of rock and pop, Rockmore has evolved her own style, described by many as a ‘breath of fresh air.’ With powerful, melodic vocals combined with rocking guitars, funky bass lines and hard-hitting drums, the music is pop-rock with a beautiful twist. Her influences are wide spread: Rock, pop, folk, traditional Greek music, and hip-hop are all in Melodee’s collection, but bands and artists such as No Doubt, Queen and Michael Jackson are on constant rotation on Rockmore's CD player.

New Album - Lovers and Thieves
from iTunes, emusic, amazon & rapsody
Bio:

Sharon Lang started playing music the day her brother Dave taught her how to play a two-chord guitar sketch. Since then, she has sailed the musical ocean of her mind learning the currents and waves and range of her talent until setting harbor here for a time. Hailing as lead singer of local groove and acid-rap band The Janissary, Lang has complimented her mysterious nature by presenting a whole other facet of musical capability.

The much anticipated release of her solo album, Lovers and Thieves (Digital release July 1 2009), is a showcase to her demure yet candid femininity. With her velvet vocals, mischievous lyrics, and an instrumentation capable of teasing you into bed, Sharon Lang has gone far beyond the expectation of her trip-hop roots and emerged a female performer prepared to allure her listeners with bona fide tunes.

Accompanied by friends and fellow musicians Lyndsay Pruett, John Depriest, and Josh Minyard, Lovers and Thieves is a simple, no-frills portrayal of Lang's experiences both before and during her time in Nashville. Inspired by the unique community of artists, lovers, gypsies, dreamers, saints, and sinners that occupy this fair city, it truly expresses a love of first-class effort and sincere dedication to all things that are good.

Track 2 - Tied Up In Knots

MainSite     MySpace

Info

Moth Complex is an electronic rock band fronted by singer/songwriter, Aoife O'Leary.

Moth Complex combines Aoife's powerful and gentle voice with off-kilter electronics and bruising rock. It's a sound of contrasting elements - at times loud and intense, at others pretty and soft - with each element complimenting and highlighting the other.

Based in Dublin, Ireland, Aoife began writing songs for Moth Complex with the idea of combining a propulsive sound with a hard, cold edge with open and bared melodies and words.

She approached Gerry Owens to work with her, having known his writing and production on Skindive. Together they defined their sound and wrote the songs for Moth Complex.

The live show is the perfect place to explore the varied musical elements in Moth Complex and here, Aoife is joined by Dave Kavanagh (guitar), Eoin Markey (bass) and Damien Murphy (drums).

Roman Navarro, a New York rocker, and Meredith Geoghegan, a Jersey grrrl, met in Manhattan while attending college for graphic design in the fall of '98. They became good friends because of their common pursuits as songwriters and musicians. Roman, who had been influenced by the guitar gods of classic rock Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page, was then listening heavily to Elliott Smith and the Flaming Lips. Meredith, who was initially struck by the raw attitude of Nirvana, Hole and L7, was then immersed in the Riot Grrrl scene and bands like Team Dresch and Sleater Kinney. After a few semesters of college together, Roman left to pursue music full time and they lost touch. Five years later, he called Meredith and she called him back twice. Within a few weeks, they began writing and recording music together with no real objective in mind other than to satisfy their own creative impulses.

After playing a loose experimental set of new material at a local show in April 2006, they began actively recording their self-released debut album “Credito O No Credito”. Both Roman and Meredith are multi-instrumental, singer/songwriters with keen ears for rhythm and melody. Together, they have composed an album of music that ranges from classic rock and grunge to dub and electronica. Each song is an imaginative soundscape that captivates and entertains. Currently, they are busy filming a few videos and writing/recording their follow up album "Suck a D".

Info

For a talented group of Iranian poets and composers enjoying fame, the Iranian revolution of 1979 extinguished hopes, dreams and careers. We will never know what could have been.
Since a serendipitous introduction in 2003, Monika Jalili has worked tirelessly to revive the touching works of these Iranian artists, some of whom are no longer with us, and most of whom have lived the past 30 years into their old age unable to express themselves as they once could. It is their songs that Monika sings with passion, appreciation, care and love.

Monika's repertoire also includes folk songs from various regions of Iran. All songs are sung in local dialects and languages, with additional English and French translations on selected pieces.

Monika Jalili brings to life the rich history of Iranian culture through its music and poetry. Her entrancing selection of songs spans time and place; traditional Persian folk favorites stand alongside love songs from the 1940s to 1970s, a time of great cultural change in Iran. The songs are performed in their original languages of Persian, Azeri, and various dialects. Using traditional and non-traditional instruments, her ensemble musicians combine their influences to present original interpretations of this music. In a spirit of exploration, Monika aspires to create understanding through an appreciation of the beauty of Iranian culture. Monika's English and French translations are her way of sharing the poetry she loves with a global audience.

Info

Born and raised in Denver, I am the youngest of four daughters born to a singing preacher and his pianist-singer wife. Music is in my DNA, along with Christian spirituality and a healthy daily dose of all things theological. I "became a Christian" just a few months after I learned to walk, and was fairly certain that life would be a bag of tootsie pops thereafter, especially since the day I got saved my mom let me jump on the bed. So when a silly boy broke my heart during my junior year of high school, I was all but ruined at the tender age of 16. God became elusive and un-knowable, His presence with me questionable at best, and faith became something I’d have to, for the first time, hash out and make my own.

So, against the soundtrack of the brutal but beautiful honesty of artists like Jennifer Knapp and Sixpence None the Richer, I set out to find a connector between what I knew in my head and what I was experiencing in real-life that seemed to contradict intellect at every turn. I researched and wrote the high school equivalent of a dissertation on the resurrection of Christ, and in so doing discovered the importance of having a personal faith based in reason. And I honed in on my love for writing poetry, decrying the pain of relationships, religion, and human depravity and finiteness, learning the importance of allowing the spirit the freedom to abandon reason and express what only a creative God could understand.

Info
Of the numerous striking qualities of Cupéro, the 19-year-old singer/songwriter and rocker, it’s the commanding presence of her voice and songs that sets her apart. Cupéro sings with a maturity and sense of permanence that belies her youth and the relatively short amount of time that she has been in the New York music scene. On her debut, self-titled EP, she sings with a passion that reveals an unshakable commitment and ambition to be a performer that transcends barriers of music, ethnicity and language.

Raised in Warwick, New York, about 65 miles north of New York City, Cupéro has been singing since she was four years old. Piano lessons began at nine and then guitar at sixteen, which for her, has been the key to unlock everything. She explains, “Since picking up the guitar, everything has fallen into place – it was the right instrument for me to begin writing songs on, and image-wise, I love it. When I’m playing guitar – that’s the essence of who I am.”

Influenced by everything from modern artists like KT Tunstall and a few classic rock artists, Cupéro saves her biggest praise for the Columbian rock artist Juanes, a winner of seventeen Latin Grammys and who has sold over ten million albums. She says, “I really admire his music and his activism, and the fact that he’s bilingual was the inspiration for me to become a bilingual artist.”

As time passed, she developed and perfected her writing skills, growing to become the talented singer and song writer she is today.

In 2009, Trina has completed and produced her first album, named “My Reality” . All 14 tracks are perfomed, and lyrics are written, by Trina Elle.

About
Puppetbox is an electro indie rock band based in Brooklyn. The band creates an impressive range of songs exploring electro, dance, walls of noise, and harmonious vocals. Their videos redefine the genre of music videos made by bands that want you to take their music seriously but can't stop making fun of themselves.

Puppetbox is a band. They are currently under the radar. In fact, both the radar and the band are unaware of each other. The band plays electro, rock, shoegazer, geek, pop music - and the radar continues to serve as a metaphor for bands that have made lots of money versus those that will forever be "emerging." The band is made up of John Payne(guitar/vox), Katie Johnston(vox/accordion/kazoo), Chris Tempas(synth/programming), and Mark Annotto(drums).

From a hamlet nestled on the corner shores of Brooklyn, Puppetbox has honed its sound to create beguiling pop melodies, but with a distinctive buzzy synth/guitar sound. Following a successful EP, Puppetbox released their eponymous album which expanded their songwriting to include array of styles and genres. The album, Runtime_Error! features songs ranging from hard electro-rock to infectious dance; the album moves relentlessly forward and includes shockingly original instrumentals all mixed seamlessly together into a gapless album.

The band's goal is to make songs that they would love to listen to – and they only listen to music that is awesome.

What’s black and white and can crush you like a bug? A piano. These monsters weigh anywhere from 300 lbs for a small upright, to four or even five times that for a concert grand. So why do artists let them sound so wimpy? KRISTEENYOUNG wants the piano to kick your ass. Their new album, Music for Strippers, Hookers, and the Odd On-Looker, feels like it was born in the boxing ring, not some sun-dappled Laurel Canyon living room.

“I wanted to create a new sound for piano on this album, and for it to be just as powerful and creative as any guitar-based record. I wanted it to sound like a wall of pianos, but like the wall in the film, Caligula: a wall that moves and decapitates everyone,” says Kristeen Young. The singer and composer has played since her childhood in St. Louis, and she knows what the piano is capable of. She sought to recapture the fiery, dangerous noise early rockers like Jerry Lee Lewis and Fats Domino wrought from the instrument’s eighty-eight keys, albeit in a wholly modern way.

Young’s foil in KRISTEENYOUNG is drummer “Baby” Jef White, whose energy and fills bring to mind the great British drummers, but whose groove is undeniably American. Together, the duo has forged a sound full of percussive impact and melodic grandeur.

You think the White Stripes make a big ruckus for a two-piece? Bah! “Stop Thinking” is anchored by low-end tone clusters that pummel like thunder. Yet Music for Strippers… has moments of startling simplicity, too, as on its closer, “Halfway Across the Atlantic Ocean.” “An album should be a spectrum of emotion,” says Young. “Far too often, people just deliver one thing. I try to run the gamut.”

About

With the soothing sound of piano accompanied by a strong voice and an electronica edge, Jennings creates a sound drawn from musicians like Imogen Heap, Annie Lennox, Tori Amos and Moby.

Although her writing began in high school, Jennings’ surge in musical expression started after the sudden death of her mother. “This tragedy rocked me to the core, but there is so much beauty in what it allowed me to do,” she says. “All of my emotions came pouring out in the form of melody.” At the time, her father, a former musician, gave her the option to go through therapy or record an album. He knew both would be equally helpful to her, but by recording her music, she would be able to have something to hold on to and share with others for a lifetime. With “Femtastic” and now "Storybook EP" complete, Jennings has built on the lessons of her life and musical journey and courageously perfected the delicate balance between vulnerability, honesty and grit.

“I believe that the difference between an artist and the average person is a fearless and relentless willingness to expose their quarks, oddities, secrets, and passions for all of the world to see and hear.” Jennings is certainly no exception to the rule. Her voice and words are her ways of expressing happiness, mourning, anxiety, anger, and excitement, allowing her listeners to laugh, cry, and live every one of her emotions. Although she is small in stature, Jennings’ music reflects an enormous strength and drive that is uniquely hers.

After a year of soul-searching, sacrifice, and sweat - NailHead Recording artists Soraia released their latest record, Shed the Skin. This record captures the raw energy and spirit of the late 60's/early 70's. Think Cream, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin - add in a neo-taste and you got it.

All members of Soraia bring to the group a wide array of influences culminating into the unique sound and energy they release: Old, New bluesy, soulful, hard-hitting, ALIVE rock n’ roll. The spirit and tones are familiar, yet the integrity of their music and live performance are extraordinary: five unique personalities sharing passion for a harder, rawer rock sound.

This is a band that is on the road as much as possible, constantly improving upon their live shows and building following. They've found pockets of fans in most college towns, and continue to build on successes through hard work, focus, and passion for what they do. They've spent the last two years playing festivals, touring the Midwest and South, and working closely on songwriting and recording with producer, Obie O'Brien.

In his review of the record, Anthony Kuzminski declares, ”Soraia are not hopping on any bandwagons, they merely check vintage classic rock riffs and find a way to swathe them into a package that is intoxicating and enthralling. There is a profound depth to the lyrics …enhanced by the layered roars of guitars that make you yearn for a time where albums and artists ruled the landscape…. the real star is Mansour’s cooing vocals paired with the elliptical lyrics which combined make Shed the Skin a harrowing, endearing and essential album….”

Info

Tara Simmons grew up on a five acre hobby farm on the flats at the foot of the Blue Mountains, her world bordered by a tapestry woven from captivating, haunting, simple sounds. In her mind, she’s never left.

Little Tara was a solitary lass, but always looking for ways to channel her talent. When she was four, she parroted her brother playing violin to the point where she was sent to lessons of her own. At the age of nine, she nagged her cello-playing mother to be let loose on that instrument as well. And by the time she started high school, she’d had eight different piano teachers – seven of whom were ill-equipped to deal with her short attention span, her intolerance for ‘My Grandfather’s Clock’ and other basic piano pieces, and her roaming mind. All the while, she honed her delicate voice in the Australian Youth Choir’s chamber ensemble.
Every afternoon of her young life, she was taxied to a different lesson determined to follow in the footsteps of those who influenced her.

Throughout her teens, Simmons fiddled after hours with illegal cracks of Logic and Cubase on her home computer, experimenting with electronic beats and found sounds, and blending them with the instruments she’d known all her life. And all the while, she was writing - letting spikes of emotion carry her away to a different realm, from which she always returned with a song. Her questing nature eventually led her to leave home to further her studies of music production.

In 2005, now based in Brisbane, she unleashed her compositions on an unready public from behind a giant hard-drive and screen at a venue in the River City’s Fortitude Valley. So fraught was that performance that she didn’t take the stage again for another year, instead choosing to continually tweak her seven-track debut EP Pendulum. Convinced it wasn’t quite ready to leave the nest, Simmons all but shelved it.

Info
Dreamdate get right to their business of brightening our day with their short, snappy tunes. The overall sound of Dreamdate can readily be spoken of in the same breath as early '90s crushworthy indie pop a la Lois, cub and Tiger Trap. As the unaffected and uneffected electric guitars strum away happily and the drums keep things simple with an uncluttered beat, you might find yourself hummin' along with these gals' warm, smooth female vocals. Nice. Aquarius Records April 2007

Although their tunes are reminiscent of, say, the riot grrl and Seattle/Portland-based garage movements, they still could only exist in present times...Their songs are, for the most part, up-tempo odes to not-so-simple pleasures and guilt and sometimes feel emotionally ambivalent…This is truly the kind of music you'd want on a Walkman when traversing long distances in the suburbs.California Aggie August 2006

The first thing I noticed while listening, is that the sound quality is without many common bells and whistles similar bands tend to overuse. Not really lo-fi but close enough to keep this music out of the pop category and in the garage where it belongs. Milk Milk Lemonade April 2007

Yea-Ming’s jangly guitars bring to mind early rock-and-roll as strongly as they do twee music, and the rhythm section provided by Anna and now-in-Seattle Emily can create a great garage-punk beat as adeptly as they can provide support during a quieter number...The album’s ten tracks cover the gamut of tempos and tones, but the basic elements that make a Dreamdate song–great relationship-examining lyrics, tight instrumentals, and sweet vocal harmonies–are on display in all ten.

Info
Jeannine Hebb, an award-winning songwriter and vocalist, has been studying, performing, writing, and rocking out since she was 11.

At 20, Jeannine graduated magna cum laude from Berklee College of Music, having studied with some of the best in the business (Gabrielle Goodman, Pat Pattison, Livingston Taylor). For two consecutive years, she won both the Berklee Singer/Songwriter and Songwriting Showcase competitions. She was chosen as the recipient of the Frank E. Remick and E. Ione Lockwood awards for excellence in music and vocal performance, and was honored with the Susan Glover Hitchcock scholarship for outstanding musicianship. Upon graduation, Jeannine received the Scott Benson scholarship for performing songwriters - the highest honor in the Berklee songwriting department.

Jeannine has been seen both as a singer and songwriter at many a famous venue in the Northeast including: Scullers, The Ragatta Bar, The Middle East, Harper's Ferry, The Berklee Performance Center,  The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, Don Hill's, and Galapagos Art Space, and many more. She's appeared with jazz legends Ben Monder, Clarence Penn, James Genus, and Tim Ries, and has served as an opening act for two-time grammy nominee Tracy Bonham. 

Jeannine’s debut EP of original songs, “Too Late to Change Me”, was released in March of 2007, and has received national attention and acclaim.  The songs, while roughly categorized as pop/rock, borrow influence from blues, jazz, R&B and soul. Comparisons have been made to Fiona Apple, Laura Nyro, Carole King, and Norah Jones. The EP has been described as “music like we have not heard in many, many years”, and is “truly reminiscent of the styles of foundational, outstanding songwriters.” - Noah Fleischman (WOR NYC radio producer).

The 24 year old’s original compositions and jazz singing projects can be heard on the Boston College Show "The BC", and on many area radio stations, including Boston's famed WGBH.  Jeannine has appeared as a frequent guest on New York television and radio - as a performer on the Joey Reynold’s Show (a long-running hit talk show on New York’s WOR) , and “Metro Elvis” (a weekly Manhattan program featuring up-and-coming artists).

In 2008, a video of Hebb's song “Just Enough for Me”, was picked to appear as a sample video on the newest line of video/mp3 players released by Coby Electonics. Last October, her EP was featured on the cover of Discmakers - the nation's leading provider of CD duplication and manufacturing services.

Bio

Seduction comes in many forms. Those who can seduce with style make it seem effortless, unintentional, irresistible. Robin Stine's music seduces with a whiff of subtle perfume and a casual graze of her hand as she walks past, leaving the listener powerless to do anything but follow. As a singer, her voice floats on the stylish edge of contemporary cool—light, but never lightweight. As a songwriter, her enchanting originals set her in the upper echelon of today's songwriters.

Born and raised in Kansas City, Robin began her musical journey as a child singing in school groups and church choirs. When she left for college she had no idea that music would take her around the world. For three of her collegiate years she performed with gospel groups, traveling across the U.S. as well as in Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Hong Kong and China. She then moved to Miami in 1996 to begin her graduate studies. During this time she performed with “Mike Suman’s Swing City” and her own band “Simply Stellar” at festivals, hotels and clubs throughout South Florida. In 2003 she moved to Pensacola to focus on the next phase of her musical career—writing and recording her original music.

Her debut album Daydream is a sleek collection of a dozen original jazzy, bluesy numbers that immediately sound like comfortable standards. The melancholy title track “Daydream”, the only co-write on the album, was written with Chris Whiteman at the University of Miami. The album's other originals were written over a six-month period while Robin rebuilt her home in the wake of Hurricane Ivan. “These songs are very personal. They were gifts from ‘the muses’ of genuine emotion, faith and hope—and they’re my gift to the world.”

Best known for the inspiration behind the hit song, “Killing Me Softly”, Lori Lieberman has just released her newest CD, “Gun Metal Sky” which marks her thirteenth recording.
 
You see it in the distance
It was always in your mind
And it beckons like a beacon
Through the bitter taste of night
And you want to travel to it
But the madness keeps you blind
He says he needs you…

Lori Lieberman has remained in the spotlight since the early seventies, quietly gleaning the respect of an industry and a devoted base of fans. As the one responsible for such hits as "Killing Me Softly With His Song" she consistently recorded album after album for Capitol Records, RCA, EMI, Pope Music, and currently, Drive On Records.

Throughout the years of ever-changing styles and fads, one thing has remained constant in Lieberman's music-- her honest and heartfelt lyrics, coupled with her haunting, and beautiful melodies, always cutting right through to the heart of the listener.
Born in California, but raised in Switzerland, Lieberman felt the isolation and loneliness of growing up a foreigner early on, and as a young girl, turned to her writing as a form of connection, expressing her feelings in journals and in songs. One of three sisters, and the daughter of a chemical engineer and a homemaker, Lori Lieberman’s earliest influences came through her older sister, Susan, who, from her college in Maine, sent Lieberman her greatest and most life-changing gift of all, then current music from the states: Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, Leonard Cohen, Jefferson Airplane and Tom Rush. Their music and sensibilities inspired her writing even more.

Bio
The Blow is Khaela Maricich and Jona Bechtolt.

Khaela Maricich is a pop musician, visual artist, and performer. She works in the cracks between pop music and performance art, bouncing between the genres to suck out the juicier parts of either world. She creates operatic performance pieces using the conversational style of popular music. She has toured the United States extensively performing her monologue based solo opera, "Blue Sky versus Night Sky", as well as giving traditional concerts of dance-party music with her band, The Blow. Under the banner of The Blow, (currently with bandmate Jona Bechtolt), Maricich has released five albums of music, crossing styles from folk to elecronic radio style hits. She has held a number of exhibitions of drawings and illuminated paper sculptures in Seattle, Olympia, and Portland. A native of Queen Anne Hill, Maricich spent an incubative decade in Olympia, but recently moved from her cosy home there to Portland, in order to be the artist in residence at the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art. Her goings-on can be read about on her blog, at WWW.THETOUCHMEFEELING.COM.

Jona Bechtolt is a technological multi talent. His sound and video production can be found generously scattered throughout the internet, and in numerous popular live incarnations. With his project, YACHT, he makes textural dance-based compositions and performances, described by some as a "positive energy rainbow dome music from a next-generation west coast healer." He documents its movement via video, text, and images on his deeply archival and well-maintained blog, www.teamyacht.com. Currently, he is one half of The Blow, a constantly recording and touring pop mammoth music duo. In 2003, he was commissioned to create a full length audio/visual electronic pop opera by The Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (PICA), which he performed with his bandmate M. Ritchey. In 2005, he co-created, filmed, directed and edited an internet based reality show, The Ultimate Blogger, on which bloggers from around the world competed to win the illustrious title. The sequel, The Ultimate Blogger 2, is currently in production and is sweeping the nation once again. In January of 2006 he was commissioned for two performances for the New York based art and technology platform, Rhizome.org, as part of their "Crap-tops vs Laptops" show in New York. In February of 2006 he performed at MoMA's PS1 and produced an hour-long internet radio program with Clear Cut Press; a northwest-based publisher of new literary work. He has toured the United States and Canada extensively with his own projects, as well as a number of other bands. Most recently he played drums on Devendra Banhart's European festival tour, to audiences numbering in the tens of thousands.

Artist Bio

Sussie Nielsen was born in Copenhagen in 1975. In her early teenage years, Sussie became a fan of the music of Clannad. She had, at that time, no particular ambition as far as music was concerned, being mainly interested in the body and physical therapy; an interest which led to a qualification as physical education teacher and masseuse. Returning from her first trip to Ireland, Sussie brought home a heap of music, and began to sing and to play the bodhrán.

A steadily growing interest in the music, including sean-nós ( old style ) singing and gaelic song, led Sussie back to Ireland. In 2002, she started at the Irish World Music Centre, University of Limerick, where she took an M.A. in Irish Traditional Music Performance under the direction of Professor Michéal Ó Súilleabhain. Her teachers included many fine singers, among these being Padraigín Ní Uallacháin, Iarla Ó Lionáird, Karan Casey and Len Graham.

She has received excellent reviews and several nomination for the Danish Music Awards 2004 and 2005.

Clear as glass and glowing
The many excellent musicians have, as I have mentioned, their part in the credit for this, in every way, successful cd. And luckily they´ve received more space in the liner notes than studio musicians often get on ”solo” records. Nikolaj Busk, piano and accordeon, has alrady been mentioned. The others are: Helen Davies, harp. Alan Colfer, guitar. Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, violin , tin whistle. Peter G. Sørensen, violin. Bjarne Schmidt, bouzouki. Niklas Roswall, nyckelharpa and its predecessor the moraharpa. Soma Alpass, cello. They provide music which vibrates, glowing and clear as glass, in beautiful harmony with Sussie Nielsen´s simultaneously crisp and authoritatively strong and intense voice.

Ethereal is The One Woman Army. Using her pen as a sword, she cuts through the walls she erected on her debut album, Mythillogical and lays bare her soul on her upcoming EP, Albatross. Simultaneously taking on the demons from an abusive childhood and speaking loud and clear about the state of the world today, Ethereal expertly blends her two foremost passions in songs like, Baby Blue and This is Rome. With deep, sensual vocals reminiscent of a reincarnated Nico and a modern day Annie Lennox, Ethereal sings with a beautiful combination of catharsis and renewal. Part vigilante, part fallen angel, Ethereal takes you on a journey through light and dark, discovering that there is truth not in one or the other, but in between. Like a present day Ancient Mariner, sword replacing sail, she wears her albatross proudly; telling a tale youll never tire of hearing.

Info
Hailing from Paris, France, and growing up in a small village of the French Alps, Clara Bellino blends heartfelt rhythms, magical lyrics, and unimaginable emotions into a rare mixture of solid American songs with an unfettered sense of humor and a European sense of what is amusing. Americans probably remain puzzled by her songs in French, but are still moved by the rhythms and the performance. Her English songs are instantly understandable and the range between Europop and American Music is beguiling. All you have to do is listen to “Potential Criminal” or “Goodnight Baby” and you won’t get these beautifully produced songs out of
your head.

There is no single word that describes her songs. It’s a mixture of thoroughly requited love and, at odd times, real aggression, but with a sense of humor that never fades. Critic Bruce Bellingham compares her work to that of Faithful, Blondie’s Debby Harry and Nico before her involvement with The Velvet Underground.

Clara grew up in a household where she was saturated in the essence of instrumentation and true musicianship. As a solidified Jazz fan, Clara's father exposed her to the musical artistry of such industry Legends who include Zappa, The Beatles, Mahalia Jackson, Bob Dylan, Fats Waller and Miles Davis. These experiences inspired Clara to pursue what would become her life's passion. She completed a ten year French Conservatory program covering Music Theory, Harmony, Piano and Tenor Recorder and is also an
accomplished guitarist.

About
We don't play pop music, we don't write music for art's sake, we don't represent any movements, we're not hip, we're not cutting edge, we don't dress to be cool. We do manage ourselves, we write our own songs, we do our own recordings, we shoot our own videos, we design our own covers, we made our own website. We're not generally negative people - oh yes, and we're not lefthanded.

We like our name because it doesn't say anything about who we are or what we do, we like to give our music a chance to do that. That said, we would liken ourselves (if we have to) to a darker Rilo Kiley, a rockier Death Cab for Cutie, a girlier We Are Scientists, a wordier Jimmy Eat World. Other people have likened us to Mazzy Starr, The Cardigans, The Postal Service, 10,000 Maniacs, jj72 - so if you shake all that up you might get some kind of idea.

We like to sing (except Benji who will only sing on his own, in a car). We like to get loud when we can (Tubescreamers are good!). We only play music that makes us feel something, in our gut. We like music that's honest. We're mostly Irish, partly Cornish (not corny!). We live in London. We really like playing music, everywhere we can

Info

Christelle’s voice is an unstoppable force that perfectly fits this incredibly determined young woman. The Las Vegas based, nineteen-year-old Pop/R&B artist has taken on countless challenges in her young life and career, and has successfully met every single one. Her hot new songs herald the arrival of this very special young artist, who lets nothing and no one get in her way.


Born in Gabon, West Africa, Christelle grew up listening to French, African and American music, but the music that struck a chord in her was the American R&B and Hip-Hop of artists like Beyonce, Ashanti, Brandy, Jay-Z, 50 Cent and Mariah Carey. As Christelle recalls, “Even though I couldn’t understand the lyrics back then, no other music made me feel as good.”

Determined to make a better life for herself, Christelle immigrated to America in 2006, initially with the goal of becoming a dental hygienist. Settling in Las Vegas, she immediately faced an enormous challenge – the language barrier. She explains, “It was a very difficult transition. It was horrible to not be able to communicate with people. I gained a tremendous amount of respect for the millions of immigrants that make up so much of America.”

Artist Bio

There is something mesmerizing and indisputable about things in life that come together by the mystery of fate – be it a personal relationship, an artistic endeavor, or a simple matter of being in the right place at the right time. When all three converge, the result is something that goes beyond any realm of possibility …

Such is the story of Los Angeles music duo BITTER:SWEET (Shana Halligan and Kiran Shahani) whose lives seemed to have over-lapped but never crossed until the perfect moment in time. How else can you explain two people who lived one block away from each other, and who recorded just one wall away, who never connected until an anonymous online posting?

When Kiran (producer, composer) and Shana (vocals, melodies, lyrics, co-producer) met, they were both “not that into” the L.A. music scene. “There was a time when I had even stopped listening to music,” explains Shana. “But sometimes you’re just meant to do things in life...”

As a Southern California native, Shana had just returned home from “having a beautiful experience” in Europe when she decided to answer her first-ever ad for a singer. Not only was it an ad, it was on Craig’s List! The accomplished musician had grown up with music in her blood – her father is eight-time Grammy Award winning composer Dick Halligan of Blood, Sweat & Tears – and she had started her singing career at age seven by performing in films and television commercials. Later on, she performed live throughout the United States and Europe in addition to composing music for television shows and soundtracks (most recently she is featured on the Buckethead album singing a duet with Serj Tankian of System Of A Down).

Info

Chrissy's seasoned voice coupled with her warm personality are an unstoppable combination. She calls to mind Sheryl Crow and Natalie Merchant with tinges of Rickie Lee Jones and Lucinda Williams.

And 2008 has been a good year for this New York City based singer-songwriter. The winter was full of excitement moving to and 'officially' becoming a 'New Yorker', the spring delight of releasing her new CD, Look Ahead, and the summer and fall have been chock full of performances to support her new release.

Raised in numerous places including Detroit, Kansas City, and Washington DC, Chrissy is no stranger to moving around and making things work for her. Her ease with meeting people from all different walks of life through her travels throughout the country and the world has afforded her the ability to translate those experiences into intensely thoughtful songs.

Chrissy didn't start off a singer-songwriter. In fact, it was only after a post college career in the environmental field, when she allowed herself the time to sit down and to develop her craft. Music has always been in her blood as an accomplished flutist and singer but songwriting was new. And she was more than ready for the challenge.

Description:

SpudShow is 3 years old today. I started doing a music show in english featuring podsafe bands. Then during Seachtain na Gaeilge I started doing it in the Irish language. From there the music concentrated on female podsafe artists. Now 335 shows later it  is still in Irish. As of today there are over 200,000 downloads. What about some email feedback from listeners?

Info
ASTRONAUTS OF ANTIQUITY Marrying the vibey, seductively ethereal textures of lounge, dub and trance with the timeless verities of great pop and rock songwriting, Astronauts of Antiquity have bridged various musical worlds to create a realm all their own. And while their journey has taken them around the globe, on their new album, Rocket Science For Dummies, they have brought it all back home, delivering an album that is seamless and mesmerizing, reflecting a unified expression of their musical vision. Their music has been called everything from “urban-electro-organica,” to a “jazzy, neo-soulful, electronic exploration,” but more than any genre, what defines Astronauts of Antiquity is the musical and life partnership of India on vocals and B. Rhyan on guitars. The two first ran into each other – literally – at the airport, while India was rushing to make a flight. Three years later, the two once again encountered at one of India’s performances in Milwaukee. Backstage after her show, B. Rhyan was instantly captivated by India and sensed something more than simply a kindred spirit – he saw the possibility of a music and soul partner.

Info
Leanne Bugat, or otherwise known as Lee, was born in Melbourne, Australia, into a musical family with her father being known as Australia’s Roy Orbison back in the 50’s & 60’s. It comes as no surprise that Leanne was born with music in her veins.
During the last 20 years or so, live performances have been a big part of Leanne's life. She began by learning to play the clarinet, saxophone and then taught herself to play the guitar. This combination of instruments allowed Leanne to perform in school productions. There are many venues that Lee has performed in such as pubs, clubs, community events, festivals, parties, weddings, choirs and she has also been know to have busked.
At the age of 18 Leanne and her sister were chosen to do backing vocals for Diana Trasks' national Australian tour. Unfortunately due to circumstances out of Leanne’s control the tour was cancelled. This would have been a great jump start for Leanne’s career but was not forthcoming.

WENDY AND LISA’S WHITE FLAGS OF WINTER CHIMNEYS OUT NOW

Los Angeles, CA - Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman, better known as the legendary duo Wendy and Lisa, have released their new album, White Flags of Winter Chimneys. It is available exclusively on their web site wendyandlisa.com (with unreleased bonus tracks), to be followed with CD and Limited Edition vinyl releases, as well as being made available at iTunes, Amazon MP3, and other digital music stores in March 2009.

White Flags of Winter Chimneys is Wendy and Lisa’s first album since 1998’s Girl Bros. Self-produced and self-released by the duo, the album is a gorgeous kaleidoscope of song-compositions with influences ranging from trance to electronica to 70’s funk and straight up rock and roll.

The renowned fine artist and graphic designer Rex Ray, whose artwork has adorned albums by David Bowie, Diamanda Galas, Deee-Lite and many others, designed the album packaging. Additionally, the packaging of the CD will be a 6-panel Digipak comprised of recycled board, printed using non-toxic vegetable based ink, and a FlexTray made from 100% post-consumer plastic (recycled soda bottles).

Wendy and Lisa are also continuing in their successful television-scoring career. Currently, they are in their third season of scoring the NBC-TV hit “Heroes,” and they are taking on the scoring duties for the upcoming “Virtuality” on Fox and “Nurse Jackie” on Showtime. They have received the prestigious ASCAP award for Composer’s of the Year for their work on Dangerous Minds, the theme to HBO’s Carnivale, Crossing Jordan and Heroes.

Wendy and Lisa first burst upon the consciousness of the music world in the early 80’s as part of Prince’s Revolution, where the two were Prince’s most trusted collaborators and partners for what arguably was the most seismic chapter of the legend’s career. Striking out on their own in 1986, they have released four well-regarded albums: Wendy and Lisa (1987), Fruit at the Bottom (1989), Eroica (1990), and Girl Bros. (1998).

Discovered while singing in the New York City subway by Producer Jamie Propp of As Is Entertainment, and recorded over three years with Adam Chalk, Propp recalls the first time he heard Manze singing. “Within one song she transported me through the entire range of emotions. I will never forget that song.” That song was Dayila’s original “Solé,” now the a cappella title track of her debut CD.

Manze performs with her band the Nago Nation, including guitarist Alexis Monvelyno (RAM), percussion/vocalist Evens “Zilibo” Seney & Jakobo, rapper Bennchoumy Elian, bassist Andy Galore and drummer Peter Barr. Her debut CD “Solé” features her beautifully crafted pop songs in english (“That Feeling” & “ I Want To Be Free”), arrangements of the Vodou (‘racine’) songs, sung in Kreyol, which she learned from her ancestors, and electronic remixes of roots music that clearly establish Manze Dayila as the “Empress of Vodou Music.”

Kelly Richey Bio

“Stevie Ray Vaughn trapped in a woman's body with Janis Joplin screaming to get out.” This is how one critic describes Kelly Richey, a blues-based rock virtuoso. Buoyed by critical praise and fiercely loyal fans, The Kelly Richey Band tours extensively bringing their electric live experience to venues throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. The attention centers around this Kentucky native’s guitar playing; Richey’s proficiency has earned her comparisons to Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan while gaining her a place on stage with blues legends, Albert King and Lonnie Mack. Richey has opened for artists such as James Brown, Johnny and Edgar Winter, and Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown. As one journalist put it, “Imagine a cross between Bonnie Raitt and Ruth Brown and you’ve only begun to get the picture.”

Built on unforgettable and explosive live performances, the Kelly Richey Band has developed an almost cult-like following, with fans picking up thousands of the band’s previous releases, most notably, Eyes Of a Woman, Sending Me Angels, and the electrifying DVD, Kelly Richey Live. Since establishing her own label, Sweet Lucy Records, Richey has released ten CDs, as both a solo artist and with her band. The label has secured national and international distribution through traditional channels and embraced internet digital distribution since the beginning of it’s availability to independent artists.

Miranda Vettrus grew up in an amusement park, makes horror movies with her younger sister, Mariah and writes Go Go's inspired songs at 3 in the morning. By the age of 5, Miranda had already jumped off a 100 foot crane thrill-ride dubbed the Sky-coaster dozens of times. She's written dozens of songs and continues to grow her catalog by the day.

Her spark for singing was ignited at the mature age of three, when she was brought up on stage at church to sing with her mother. She never looked back, and for the next six years, sang and played piano at church, performed at fairs and festivals included her family's amusement park, and sang with the Willamette Girlchoir, an all-girl choir based in Salem, Oregon. “I first saw Miranda perform with the Girlchoir, and I was blown away by the pipes on this little girl,” said music producer Jason Carter. “She stood out like a shining star.”

Two years later, Carter saw her performing solo at a Salem festival, and asked her parents if they’d like to bring her into the studio. The minute she stepped into the vocal booth, Miranda said, “I felt right at home." The two started production on her first demo.

Info

Raised in a music-friendly home — growing up with piano lessons and a public address system in the living room to practice Patsy Cline on - Shedd found punk rock as a teen and morphed into a singer-songwriter wrestling with a love of distortion. Also a fan of artists that drape their vocals in various shrouds (My Bloody Valentine, Cocteau Twins, The Jesus & Mary Chain), Shedd decided that she never really wanted her vocals up front, an edict that permeated her previous recordings. Now, with Cigarettes & Smoke Machines, Shedd lets go and we benefit from vocal performances that establish the arresting emotional core of her latest record.

Belladonna are the first Rock Noir band in the world.
Moody, dramatic, intense, Belladonna's songs dwell on madness and magic, revenge and reincarnation, sex and excess, with a massively powerful and passionate sound that's both deeply erotic and unbearably romantic.

Belladonna's MySpace success has been unexpected and lightning-fast: with over 1.000.000 plays of their songs they have now become one of the world's most popular unsigned bands on MySpace.

Their acclaimed debut CD "Metaphysical Attraction" has gained them rave reviews from all over the world and has given Belladonna true cult status. Its songs have been added to the playlists of over 200 radios worldwide, magazines like Rolling Stone, Glamour, GQ and NME have hailed Belladonna as the "next big thing", and even Wikipedia has devoted a page to the bandand to Rock Noir, the musical genre that they have single-handedly originated.

Two songs out of their debut CD, “Black Swan” and “Foreverland”, have even received the incredible honor (unprecedented for an unsigned band!) of being included in the Grammy Awards 2008 Ballot, in the categories Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals and Best Rock Song.

Bio
Patti Rothberg is a critically acclaimed singer/songwriter whose songs have the power to take over a stadium without losing their lyrical intimacy. Rothberg's razor sharp wit and stark honesty trade barbs in the studio where she thrives in her creative freedom and at last releases an album that reflects her talent as a whole. With material that's split down the middle between hard rock and heartfelt acoustic songs.Rothberg's an electric guitar-wielding rock chick with a novelist's introspection, Patti is the rare artist who can work both sides of the musical spectrum.

Info

ODi's story began when she uploaded some home recordings to My Space. People here, there and everywhere began to listen to her songs, loved what they heard and asked when her next gig was.

Inspired by this and armed with a beautiful, raw, voice, a cheap guitar, won on ebay, and her heart on her sleeve, ODi headed down to her local venue to blag her first gig. Her story has grown from there ….

…Two years on, ODi was invited to support Seth Lakeman at the Beverley Folk Festival. Along the way, the hard working Wexford woman has played over 200 gigs across the UK, Ireland and Germany. Released 2 well received singles "Crawl" and "What You Deserve" whilst developing an ever growing fanbase. She’s also managed to trade in the cheap guitar for a better one!

Her captivating voice and well crafted songs have already been likened to those of Suzanne Vega and Natalie Merchant. The musical landscapes on her recordings hinting towards a female version of Damien Rice, with a touch of PJ Harvey thrown in for good measure.

October sees ODi bring her new EP “A Superman” to the UK. The 5 Tracker features production input from Ken McHugh aka Autamata, (Juno Falls, David Kitt) and Karl Odlum (Fionn Regan , The Frames, Gemma Hayes)

Released in Ireland during summer 2008 The title track received national and regional airplay across the Emerald isle including a feature as ‘download of the day’ on The Tony Fenton’s Today FM show. The EP also brought praise from Irish publications including Hot Press and the Galway Advertiser amongst others.

ODi comes off the back of a 30 date Irish tour and heads to the UK for dates in September to promote the release of “A Superman”

She then enters the studio in late 2008 to record her debut album, due for release in summer 2009.

Complex is first word that comes to mind when considering Hollywood based Australian artist and producer gilli moon: songs of being a child by an all-woman chanteuse, a singular warrior over the industry who remains quietly sensitive, and a dynamic performance artist who paints as brilliantly as she sings. - JeffBuckley.com
Born in Milan Italy, and raised in the wilderness "bush" just north of Sydney, Australia, Gilli Moon is a force to be reckoned with in the music industry. She is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, pianist, actor, producer, author, painter, motivator, entrepreneur, visionary and empowering community builder, and like her company name, she is truly a Warrior Girl. Her restless creativity and rebellious nature continually urge the artist to push the envelope in the studio, on stage, in business and with whatever she touches.
Gilli (pronounced as with a "J") is an illustrious, energetic poly-media artist, with multifaceted albums and dynamic live shows that have touched music lovers worldwide garnering high praise from the most jaded of critics. For the past 10 years she has been one of Australia's most influential and iconic figures, forging an independent path before anyone knew what "indie" was. She has produced and released 4 studio music albums of her original music, to critical acclaim, winning songwriting and artist awards, performing across the world many times, and landing songs in film and television.

Tina! Janis! Aretha! Doña? That's right! There's a new one-name wonder in town! Also known as "The Boogie Woogie Woman" for her two fisted piano playing, Doña Oxford is fronting one of the hottest Rock & Roll bands of the 21st century! The word is out that when Doña sings, her vocal cool gets her audience all heated up!! It's all attitude, sultry good looks and a down and dirty beat that makes it happen when Doña (pronounced doan-ya) hits the stage!

Of English, Dutch, and German descent, Doña is the offspring of a trumpet playing Episcopal Priest father and a cabaret singer mom (her best pal). Born on June 2, this Gemini is a seasoned performer. She started playing piano at age five, on a one octave toy piano. She took lessons at school without her parents knowledge. By age 6 it was apparent that Doña was serious. Her mother bought her an upright Baldwin piano - her first real piano, and by 7 she was giving concerts at school.

Along the way, Doña took center stage with another talent - singing. Doña strengthened her pipes and learned her stage savvy with years of theatrical work; both regionally and Off-Broadway. With her theatrical interest, she went to New York City to study Drama at NYU, Tisch School of the Arts. But it was her lust for Blues and Rock & Roll that inspired Doña to leave the theater business and set out for the New York Nightclub Scene!

MARCIA BALL – PEACE LOVE & BBQ A sensational, saucy singer and superb pianist...where Texas stomp-rock and Louisiana blues-swamp meet --USA Today “An irresistible, celebratory blend of rollicking, two-fisted New Orleans piano, Louisiana Swamp rock and smoldering Texas blues from a compelling storyteller.” --Boston Globe The simple mention of a Louisiana or Texas roadhouse conjures up images of a crowded dancehall filled wall-to-wall with rabid music fans rocking to a hotter-than-hot band playing a smoldering blend of swampy R&B, jumping blues and heart-wrenching ballads. Pianist/vocalist/songwriter Marcia Ball brings that spirit to every concert she plays and every song she records. Her music is mixed with equal parts simmering soul fervor and two-fisted piano pounding. Between her deeply emotive vocals and her incisive, often poignant songwriting, Ball is in a class by herself. Her groove-laden New Orleans R&B and driving Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite of music fans all over the world. The Boston Herald says, “Piano pounding Marcia Ball plays masterful, red hot tracks from the Texas-Louisiana border. Her voice can break your heart with a ballad or break your back with a rocker.”

Bio:
A four time Asbury Music Award Nominee and a New Jersey native, 23 year old Justina Carubia has been playing guitar and writing her own songs since she was 18.  With the influences of classic and folk rock, Justina writes from personal experience and fictional stories.  She pens all her own tunes and delivers from the heart with her soft , yet soulful rock vocal approach.

In May of 2005 Justina released her five song, fully produced debut EP titled "Break of Day", and in December her single "Believe" which she recorded for the Lainie's Angels Foundation to raise charity for kids with cancer and blood disorders.  She recently recorded her long awaited follow-up EP "Last One Standing" which she co-produced.  A five song collection, "Last One Standing" contains more mature lyrics and is creatively produced.  Influences include The Beatles, Janis Joplin, Eric Clapton, Fleetwood Mac, Pat Benatar, Jewel, Fiona Apple, Sheryl Crow, and Michelle Branch.

"Justina's got the talent and the heart to go to the top.  This apparent ingenue has recently released "Break of Day", a startlingly mature sample of her virtuosity." -Cafe Improv

"Just a week after releasing her first 5-song EP titled "Break of Day", it has been receiving rave reviews.  There is a definite buzz accompanying this release, so come out and catch a rising star!" -The Indigo Coffeehouse

"Justina is a phenomenal talent, since her debut performance here, we knew we had witnessed something special.  She has wonderful lyrics that she transforms into great harmonious songs.  Justina has the making of star; we consider her as one of the sensational artists who is 'under the radar'." -Espresso Joe's

"Justina has pipes and attitude.  She rocks some nice back rhythm on acoustic guitar when the band is in full swing, and is on target in the stripped down guitar and vocal moments.  Good dynamics, focused band...if there were ever any doubts as to her ability to rock, they have been put to rest!"  -Rob Jones, The Court Tav

Darcy Fray has a flair for the dramatic. From seductive synth-beated rhythms, to somber guitar-soaked vistas, Fray provides a intoxicating update on atmospheric, UK-style space-pop that continues to make believers of the curious. Beginning in 2002 in the very un-UK surroundings of a Los Angeles bedroom, Fray got off to a promising start with the self-release of the "Speak and Spell EP" which was welcomed as a blast of freezer air, cool crisp and bracingly refreshing...ice-queen voice...brittle drum-machine backing and occasional bouts of brutal shoe-gazing guitar (Jennifer Kelly - Splendid Magazine).

Reviews: The Big Takeover, Issue . 55 (Fall 2004) DARCY FRAY
THE FIREBALL EP
by Marcel Feldmar

Fireball is, as the title suggests, high energy pop rock keyboard mayhem, but with very sweet hooks and a very guitar oriented swing into pop, It slightly reminds me of "Third Eye" by Red Kross, but that's just the first song. The second drifts into a more mellow Pink Floyd feel, but sparser and more on that indie rock tip. There's hints of a devil may care glam attitude, too: "Throw on the wigs and make-up and let's just rock", comes out sometimes, and the harmonies are beautiful. It feels like five songs aren't enough to figure this one out, though I'm going to definitely keep trying.

Info
If AC/DC and Joan Jett were to have a child, and allow Van Halen, Motley Crue and Metallica to babsysit frequently, the result would be "Vision".
Vision’s sound is influenced by classic and 80’s rock/blues rock, with a touch of modern rock mixed in. Having a female front the bad gives a nice twist to the traditional feel. The band prides themselves on thoughtful, melodic lyrics layered over hard driving rhythms.
Vision was formed by David Vignola (guitar) and Juliette "Jules" Vignola (bass, vocals) in 2006. While they looked for band members they began writing the early songs which would eventually go on the first CD. After several lineup and name changes, the current lineup including Joe Johnston (keys, guitar), Diane Calano (drums) and Michelle Privée (lead vocals) was completed around February 2008. Once the band was assembled, they started recording immediately, completing their first CD "No Regrets" in May 2008. Vision has since hit the road playing local gigs in the Connecticut area and building a strong fan base.

"No Regrets" is more than an album, it's a philosophy embraced by all members of Vision. Through good times and bad, we know that our experiences made us who we are, what doesn't kill us makes us stronger, and looking back, we have NO REGRETS!

Info
Pigeonhole Carrie Rodriguez at your peril. Sure, she’s done a lot of duets. She plays a fiddle. (a mean one at that.) She’s recorded songs with a pleasing, folksy twang.

But don’t think you know what you’re getting. Not yet 30, and with a critically-acclaimed solo record and several well-received duet records in her wake, the classically trained singer/songwriter has just begun flexing her artistic muscles, still figuring out how far her talents will take her. If you’re looking for someone playing it safe and sticking to tried-and-true ways of music making, as the title of Rodriguez’s daring new album aptly states, SHE AIN’T ME.

“Because I took some chances, wrote with some new people and actually co-wrote most of the songs on the album, it’s very different,” Rodriguez notes.

Also different: Malcolm Burn’s dense production, bulging with thoughtful details, yet always serving the song. “If the song doesn’t hold up on its own, without all the production, he doesn’t want to have anything to do with it,” Rodriguez says. “And he was much more into the vibe than perfection—which is good for me, because my tendency is to try to make things perfect.”

Info
On her debut album, The Inner Revolution, songstress Kira Fontana triumphs in embracing an emotional rawness without fear, while also exploring a soul-searching mysticism that’s undaunted in recognizing life’s ever-changing moves. Like Sinéad O’Connor and Tori Amos before her, the San Francisco Bay Area-born artist approaches such a task with unshakable power. Welcome to The Inner Revolution.

“For me, [The Inner Revolution] is about getting back to the truth of who you are and coming full circle in life,” Fontana says. “It’s about really trusting that inner core above anything outside.”

For Fontana, finding that place where your creative desires become a tangible realization started as early as five-years-old, when she learned to play the piano by ear. Before she reached her teens, she was writing pop songs and classical piano instrumentals. She soon developed an insatiable appetite for all kinds of music, everything from alternative rock to Javanese gamelan, and explored the works of chamber music enthusiast Igor Stravinsky, and minimalist composers Steve Reich and Arvo Pärt.

Info
Lilith Fair artist, Deni Bonet is a singer/songwriter and world-class electric violinist. She was an original cast member of National Public Radio's premier music show, MOUNTAIN STAGE and performed with Cyndi Lauper, REM, Sarah McLachlan, etc. before forming her own highly regarded band.

Deni quit the classical world to pursue a solo career because she hated wearing black and having to sit still! The Wall Street Journal recently described Deni’s music as “like Sheryl Crow meets the B52’s”.

Last Girl On Earth, Deni’s first, new, full-length album since the 2002 release of the critically-acclaimed CD, Bigger Is Always Better, features a collection of new originals, an unexpected re-working of a classic 80’s song and two bonus tracks of alternate versions of two of the songs on the album.

Joséphine left the romantic streets of Paris at the age of 17 to pursue her music in the bilingual city of Montreal, Canada. The couple of years she spent there were a stepping-stone for her transition from teenager to adult and from dreamer to artist. She was then ready to move to the city that she had always viewed as the music capital of the world: New York.

Joséphine left the romantic streets of Paris at the age of 17 to pursue her music in the bilingual city of Montreal, Canada. The couple of years she spent there were a stepping-stone for her transition from teenager to adult and from dreamer to artist. She was then ready to move to the city that she had always viewed as the music capital of the world: New York.

Montréal gave Joséphine her first stage experiences and introduced her to a whole new world of music. She joined The People’s Gospel Choir of Montréal and was a part of their Vibe Award winning album. She has also recorded songs for film and a television commercial in France.

As soon as Joséphine arrived in New York, she knew that she was in the right place and quickly found her way in the local New York music scene. She co-wrote and recorded her first album, Unfinished Life, with singer/songwriter Craig Wilson. In the meantime, she has been playing her songs around New York in venues such as The Bitter End, Crash Mansion, and R&R.

Joséphine is an obvious romantic and sings with sweetness and hope although a certain melancholy and awareness of life’s pains and difficulties show her sensitivity in most of her songs. They have been described as “Sweetly sung, counting up regrets such as in the standout, Right Here.”

Unfinished Life is an honest representation of who she is, with a persisting little French accent...

Info
When people ask Tanya 'What do you do?', she says 'I'm a poet'. This gets a wide variety of responses, but mostly just 'oh'. She also says 'I'm a musician', which leads to such inevitable questions as 'What kind of music do you play?'. That's where things get hard to explain...
She writes songs in the loosely-defined alt-folk category, although also has tendencies towards well-arranged pop music and genres that get people dancing. Songs of love, life, work, and art. Songs with refreshingly candid lyrics, poetic and exposing. She's a relative newcomer on the Atlantic music scene, although she's been performing for years; that's where the 'poet' part comes in.

Writing and performing spoken word style poetry since 2000, Tanya's performed up and down the west coast and throughout the Maritimes. She placed first in the PEI portion of the 2005 CBC Poetry Faceoff and went on to place 3rd in the country. Of her poetry people say, 'engaging, unique, accessible and yet interesting use of language'; of her delivery they say, 'rhythmic, with great cadence and good timing'; of her presence as a performer they say 'genuine and magnetic.'

Info
Cecilia Villar Eljuri was born in Ecuador and is the daughter of legendary radio, theatre and television pioneer Paco Villar and composer Olga Eljuri de Villar. In the creation of "En Paz," Cecilia tapped into her parents’ artistic legacy and Ecuadorian background by traveling to her homeland during the writing stage, greatly impacting the direction of the album. What unfolds on "En Paz" are songs versed in rock rhythms and hook-driven melodies, complimented by confident lyrics. On "Sombra Negra," Eljuri delivers sultry vocals on the cusp of urgency backed by growling guitar licks. "Una Ola," one of the first tracks written for the album, reflects upon a dear friend and memories of him. Eljuri describes the powers of the ocean and how a single wave can sweep you away into bliss.

Info

"With a girl like me, you know you won't get bored," sings KJ Denhert on the title track of her CD, Girl Like Me. Those who have experienced KJ live would certainly agree. Her sense of joy onstage is infectious, bringing honesty and charisma to her talents as a songwriter, singer and guitarist. As an experienced bandleader, she plays without a net, always taking you on a fun ride. KJ has taken the rhythm, wit and passion of her performances, and wrapped them up in lush arrangements and sparkling production to create her signature CD Girl Like Me. Two notable releases, The Songwriters Notebook and Another Year Gone By, Live followed on her independent label Mother Cyclone Records.

KJ calls her music Urban Folk and Jazz, though it is rooted in Funk and R & B. "The jazz," she explains, "comes from people's perceptions of my guitar voicing and the structure of the tunes themselves-using extended solos and players working off of each other. Urban reflects my childhood, growing up in NYC, and folk, I really adored James Taylor, my first guitar influence." Her lyrics tread the familiar grounds of romance, hope and despair, but in uniquely inspiring ways, as in Little Mary "Little Mary don't you be afraid there are a million of us feeling this way."

Info
Up-and-coming popular singer Lin McEwan recently premiered her first two music videos before a packed crowd of cheering fans and friends at Manhattan’s Zipper Factory. The show also celebrated the release of the digital-only Now I Know EP, the follow-up to her self-titled debut album. The EP is the first release entirely composed of songs written by Lin and co-writer Mike Pettry.

Both the videos and the EP mark a big change for a girl who spent her youth being told that she couldn’t sing because her voice was too low. "My voice was so strange for my age," she recalls, "that when I was in the eighth grade, I had to play Santa Claus because the boys voices hadn't changed yet, and I was the only one who could do a convincing, ‘Ho, ho, ho.’"

It wasn't until she was 16 that she stepped onto the stage of her high school's gala gospel concert to give her first ever solo performance, a rousing blues take of "Amazing Grace," for which she received a thunderous three-minute standing ovation.

Since arriving in New York, the Baltimore-native has been “gaining notice for her uncommonly deep voice” and for her “soulfully sung and well-written material”—a funky fusion of soul and pop… like Tina Turner or Mavis Staples singing over Keane (The Baltimore Sun; JustSoul). Along with her talented group of regular players, who’ve backed everyone from Jesse Malin to Gavin DeGraw, she’s appeared at such landmark establishments as CBGB's and the Bitter End, as well as the Living Room, the Rockwood Music Hall, the Cutting Room, Crash Mansion, and Arlene's Grocery. But she still considers Baltimore home and takes the band back as often as possible.

Lin is a proud member of ASCAP and the NAPM.

Southern-born, New York City-based Tara Leigh Cobble has spent the past eight years building an indie empire, and it runs as fast and direct as a subway train. This spring she announces the release of a new book and album within months of each other. Crowded Skies: Letters to Manhattan is the follow-up to her first book, Here’s to Hindsight: Letters to My Former Self (RELEVANT), a spiritual memoir which prompted reviewers to hail her as “the female Donald Miller.” This summer, she released her sixth album, Playing Favorites.

TLC’s albums feature many of her friends and influences: Matt Wertz, Dave Barnes, Brandon Heath, Josh Wilson, Kemper Crabb, and members of Caedmon’s Call. As if that weren’t enough, the trifecta of noteworthy magazines for 20- and 30-somethings, RELEVANT, RELEVANT Leader, and Radiant regularly feature her articles. Last year found her contributing to The Voice (Thomas Nelson), The One Year Life Verse Devotional (Tyndale), and Songs From The Voice, Vol. II: Son of the Most High.

Whether playing, leading worship, or speaking at a conference, TLC has a phenomenal ability to disarm any audience with her quick wit and engaging stage presence. She casts a lasting impression amongst fans and critics alike and has participated in 1,700+ events for singles, college students, women’s groups, and youth groups across 42 states. And she’s only just begun.

Track 1 - Balloon Factory
Track 2 - Apotemnophilia
Track 3 - Slumlord

MainSite     MySpace

Info
When UK music journalists loudly christened the “Neu-Rave” genre this past summer, with magazines like iD and NME putting Dandi Wind squarely at the forefront, we could hardly wait for the movement to surface, just like “Olde-Rave,” on North America’s cultural radar, in about a half-decade or so. The rumored scattershot resurgence of glowsticks in non-rave settings gave us slight encouragement for a quicker turnaround, but, ever since the recent death of society, this seemed no less tenuous and shallow than an ironic reclamation of Pogs. So, is Neu-Rave a movement with legs? Or just indie-rock with tacked-on “whooshy siren ravey noises” cynically appropriating yet another newly-minted nostalgic era? It doesn’t matter, because Dandi Wind is much more than a tripster buzz-genre could ever define, sincerely or not.

Much has been made of the Dandi Wind live experience, whose legend has been growing with every show. The sheer wall-climbing, feral physicality of Dandi’s stage performance, in lockstep with keyboardist/programmer Szam’s (and recently added live drummer Evan’s) relentless playing, can belie the fact that their show is startlingly tight for something seemingly on the verge of utter chaos. During recent touring with fellow infamous club-destroyers such as Les Georges Leningrad, Klaxons, Justice, Broken Social Scene and Erase Errata, the trio of Dandi Wind threatened to tear the roof off of every venue with impunity, often outshining their better-known compatriots, and all without a hint of irony. That blood is real blood, and possibly your blood. Authentic!

Dandi Wind’s debut full-length Concrete Igloo, originally self-released in a highly limited run to a quick sell-out, has now been reissued on Summer Lovers Unlimited in enhanced CD format, with stark, jaw-dropping design and ten music videos. As with the Dandi Wind live show, this album is a truly cohesive cross-media assault. The jarring, icy imagery of Dandi’s design is mirrored perfectly in Concrete Igloo’s sound - a fierce, claustrophobic collision of genre, meme, and modern-age mania. Songs like “Pluck It Out” and “Apotemnophilia” speak of perverse urges to escape the strictures of the human body (the latter song being the clinical term for the urge to self-amputate) yet are intensely rhythmic and danceable. Dandi’s vocals throughout are, by turns, animalistically gutteral and unnervingly slight, riding on Szam’s onrushing sheets of synth. On crowd favorites like “Balloon Factory,” absurdist vignettes are played out in the form of fractured playground chant and narrative. Songs like “Einsteinbrains” speak of human interaction but do so with a frenetic detachment from reality, in perfect keeping with our increasingly depersonalized times. The group playfully refers to itself as “post no-wave”, but it’s rather more fitting to categorize Dandi Wind as post-civilization. (Coming soon.)

Ag comhaireamh haon, do, trí, ceathar
Tá cosúlacht le feiceáil ann
Doras ag luascadh
Nílim in ann mé féin a iompar
Adhall ar mhadra
Ag leanúint 's ag bolú d'eireaball
Cad tá mícheart liom
Ta's a'am, ta's, a'am

Is tú an bláithín is áille
Ag snámh tríd an aer
An t-íomhá is aoibhne
Mar éinín sa spéir
Caithfidh mé bheith cúramach
Le súilín i mo lámh

Bhuel do ghoideamar gluaisteán
Le bheith neamhspleách
Ach níor thiomáin mé fada
Mar nílim in ann
Bhuel do chum mé roinnt briathra
Le bheith neamhspleách
Mar thit mé thar focal a bhí os mo chomhair
'S do choinnigh mé amach
Le bheith neamhspleách
Agus thit mé i ngrá leat
Nuair nach raibh codladh orm

Ag comhaireamh haon, dó, trí, ceathar
Ní rabhas in ann análú le do phóg
Ar mo bhéilín bog
Na mothúcháin chomh difriúil dom
Contúirt atá romham
Tá sé chomh milis le mil
'S tú féin 'tá ann
Chomh saor is fiáin

Bhuel de ghoideamar......
Is tú an bláithín is áille....
Ní rabhas in ann codladh a fháil.....
