Writing has always been a passion with a dream of having a lyric set put to music one day. Thanks to Brian i got to listen as Angels Breath come to life. Writing continues maybe more will be on the horizon.
After many years apart Los Angeles based band Boho Chapeau has reunited to bring a fresh indie folk sound to fans and critics alike. Lead by singer/songwriter Kevin Quinn the band boasts some of the best players in the country.

Brian Eno once said “It’s not the destination that matters. It’s the change of scene.” Toronto transplants The Movement Fam never had to hear the message; they live it every day. The Melbourne natives sold practically everything they owned last year and moved themselves to Toronto in search of the dream of sharing their “Soul Hop” music with the world.
Jonah Knight plays Paranormal Modern Folk; songs about ghosts & monsters, superheroes & space travel, clones & pirates. Imagine They Might Be Giants telling you about an argument between Johnny Cash, Nick Cave, and The Mountain Goats.
This Cape Cod, Massachusetts based duo, formally Seth Simonelli and Zakk Bates, kick out tight sets of acoustic pop/rock with edge on record and on stage, and keep their feet on the ground in everyday life as silly, simple humans. Much like Dashboard Confessional, it’s goofy kids with twitchy teen angst hung on expertly catchy melodies. Also much like Dashboard Confessional, it’s almost always about a girl.
Having crafted 4 albums over the past decade in her pop/funk/soul hybrid style with a string of top-shelf producers, singer/songwriter, Holly 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.

How could you be so blind? You haven’t heard of JP Corwyn? You haven’t seen him live? You haven’t heard his music? How embarrassing for you. Really, though. It’s ok. You’re in the right place. For JP, the rationale for the blind jokes is reasonable. He is legally blind.
Goldishack Guerrillas is a band on a mission: In a country where a culture of war has become business as usual, the Guerrillas fight back with a raucous mix of hip hop, guitars and political will to bring a message louder than any television.
“I’ll Bring ‘Em Everyday” is the fruit of a New Mexico collaboration that merged the lyrical poetry and vocal artistry of singer songwriter Glynn David with an original acoustic score of respected guitar and bass man, Joe Silva! … A reminder that love’s courting gestures are all too often revived as a desperate substitute for attentive love and/or, a bandage for injured love.

Chris and Evan Brown have done things most guys their ages—22 and 24, respectively—never even dream of doing. Like traveling the world as competitive ballroom dancers, or dabbling in stock market trading. But not long ago the brothers decided to enter another creative venture. One with its own kind of gliding grace, a lush beauty to equal the moves of their dancing days—and one that looks to net them an even greater return than the Dow Jones or NASDAQ might ever yield. In 2007 the pair formed Kotadama, a boldly inventive group that, with its startling debut album, Dichotomy, is about to become the fresh musical faces of pop radio.
