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. Her diverse influences include Russian folk music, classical music, Irving Berlin, Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton, and Hank Williams

music supplied via CyberBiz

Artist - Lauren Edman

Track 1 - Sweet Girl
Track 2 - This is it


Get the music from CDBaby - release March 27th

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


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.”

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.

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.

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.

Jessie Kilguss - Irish Tour

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

With the Mick Carey Band
Alcock & Brown Hotel
Clifden, Ireland

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Working on a new album

Protobaby are a 4-piece band based in Limerick with members Colm McGuinness, Tony Monahan, Bryan Ronan and Aidan Graham. 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.

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.

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!

Music supplied via MusicAlley Artist - Volary Track 1 - Blackbird flyTrack 2 - That girlTrack 3 - The lovers MainSite     MySpace get the music here InfoThe 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, 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. [...]

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.

Group - HorrorPops

Track 1 - Thelma and Louise
Track 2 - Misstake
Track 3 - Where They Wander





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.

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.

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.

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".

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.

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.

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.”

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, UKAfter 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.   Rie Sinclair "The Way It Ends - Circus Mix" (mp3) from "A Moment RieMixed" (I Miss You Records) Buy at iTunes Music Store More On This Album Rie Sinclair "Neptune's Bed" (mp3) from "A Moment You Never Dreamed" (I Miss You Records) Buy at iTunes Musi[...]

Music supplied via IodaPromonet   Track 1 - A chaveTrack 2 - Por AiTrack 3 - Embrace my heart and stay MySpace New CD - Journal de Bad InfoAcclaimed 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[...]

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.

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.

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."[...]

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

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.

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...    [...]

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.

Music supplied via IodaPromonet Group - Pacifika Track 1 - Me CaiTrack 2 - Chocolate MainSite     MySpace InfoIt 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[...]
