Cultural Vultures 

Life will eventually bring us all to the point of opposition. We then forge ourselves awake in the envy of an entire generation. Each of us will enquire our own fearful disillusionment, with the purpose being lost along with the purity of love. In its entropy we then find the quintessence of a life filled with passion. The avarice of our society that keeps us hidden from our own true potential. Love your life and live it the only way you know how, to the point where it scares you. Find your passions and exploit them, but be mindful of each other. The music is heartbreak, not just from love and relationships, but when life stops giving you things and starts taking them away. The struggles of humans, and the relationships we have with nature, religion, love and most of all each other. It is up to each of us to invent our own beautiful life, to find our passions with a voracious intensity. Find the confidence in yourself to dream, and find the peace that will set us all free.

Gary Lazer Eyes

Although currently based out of Orlando, Gary Lazer Eyes was founded by three Melbourne, FL natives. Since their not-so-serious formation in 2015, this eclectic band has grown in sound and reach. After being voted Orlando’s “Best Rock Act” in Best of Orlando 2016, GLE released High On Lies. On this EP, they explore a more alternative territory, while still managing to reflect their reggae & blues rock roots.

To support the release of this project, Gary Lazer Eyes embarked on a cross country, DIY tour. Upon returning home and playing a few “welcome back to Florida” shows, the boys received a warm reception (literally- Florida boys should stay in FL during the winter). Since then, the consistent regional touring and release of new content hasn’t stopped, quickly earning GLE a reputation in the Central FL community and beyond.

For Gary Lazer Eyes, community is an essential part of their journey. The threesome (now five) solidified while collaborating on Do-It-Yourself events featuring live music, local visual artists, and fashion vendors/brands. It was out of these collaborations that GLE was born. Leaning on the idea that music is an interdependent relationship (i.e. a song is not done until some one else hears it), the goal of their musical endeavors is not simply to create, but to connect with the people around them. All this, while still managing to have an awesome time – embracing debauchery.

Andrea Leigh Mathews

Three Way Street is a Folk/Indie/Rock band based out of West Michigan. Their love of high energy live performance has earned them a loyal following in the short time they have worked together. Lead by Andrea Mathews’ powerful vocals, the driving rhythm section of Bradley Rose and Jeffrey Baldus sets the dancers in motion to the sweet melodies of Chris Brock’s lead guitar. This band prides itself on not being just another bar band, blending a unique take on classic folk and contemporary covers with original material that keeps audiences entertained and surprised.

Bree And The Whatevers

Brooklyn based Bree And The Whatevers is a project spawned from the songwriting and musical vision of legally blind powerhouse vocalist Bree Klauser. The core of this collaboration is Bree and her partner Dan Kessler (co writer and multi instrumentalist). Their soulful vibe, paired with a cabaret aesthetic, create a high energy cathartic entertainment experience and in general a sexy fun time!

Bree And The Whatevers' Debut music video "Homewrecker" the title track of the forthcoming EP, was released in December 2016.

Lee Perreira

Singer-Songwriter-Guitarist Lee Perreira combines classic blues riffs with a soulful textured vocal style leaving his audience instantly captured.

The music of Lee Perreira finds its life in the continuous and passionate pursuit of musical excellence, breathing that passion into the soul of his audience. Tracing his roots back to Long Beach, California Lee began playing guitar at the age of 12. A regularly performing musician regionally as well as in the Arizona music scene, Lee just recently opened for James Bay for 96.9s SOLD OUT "Spring Thing" at LiveWire on April 14th and has also been blessed to of shared the night with other amazing artists such as Foo Fighters, Train, The Fray, American Idol winner Lee DeWyze, Gary Clark Jr, Matt Nathanson, Jimmy Gnecco, INXS, Scott Stapp from the band Creed, Keaton Simons, and many more!

The Human Circuit

The Human Circuit is a nine-piece, Alt-Pop, Psych-Rock band from Austin, Texas with catchy orchestral grooves ranging from the mystic vibes of David Bowie to the intricate arrangements of Arcade Fire.

On, Saturday, June 17th, 2017, The Human Circuit self-released, "Electric City" (12 Track LP) on the outside stage at Cheer Up Charlies in Austin, Texas. Since then, The Human Circuit has gained national radio support, even locally as a KUTX Studio 1A Artist, and currently The Human Circuit's third album, "Electric City" is receiving airplay coast-to-coast and has independently charted Top 200 (#95) on the North American College and Community charts.

The Human Circuit has an impressive collection of music videos and was nominated for the "Keeping it Weird (Best Experimental)" music video award for this year's Austin Music Video Festival as well as continually receive charming press reviews from, PureVolume, Sonicbids, KUTX, Music Connection, MuzicNotez, Beehive Candy, Skope, Pop Press International, and more.

The Nearly Deads

Led by the inimitable vocalist Theresa Jeane along with Steven Tobi (guitar), Kevin Koelsch (bass), Javier Garza Jr. (guitar) and Josh Perrone (drums), The Nearly Deads are one of the hottest, rising rock bands to come out of Nashville. The band became a viral sensation with their break out, zombie infused music video for the single "Never Look Back"; as a result, their fans dubbed themselves "Zombies", creating The Nearly Deads #ZombieNation. The band’s amalgam of powerful pop vocals and aggressive alternative rock music combined with their love of all things geek and messages of positivity and empowerment creates a truly unique style that’s garnering attention from media and fans around the world.

The band is currently gaining massive traction with their smash hit song “My Evil Ways.”

Coopertheband

Coopertheband (all one word) is a  bramily (band/friends/family) composed of six massive music nerds with minds to rhyme and twelve hot feet. Centered in Jackson, TN, the band has found success nationally, featured on networks like HBO, ESPN, and TruTV as well as the hit show “Without a Trace.”  Coopertheband is also hugely plugged into the local music scene and often finds itself on podcasts, regional television shows, and the occasional old-fashioned newspaper article. To date, Coopertheband has released three albums - Venture (2010), Kings EP (2012), and most recently, Kingdoms (2017) - now available everywhere.

 

Scott Evans

Scott Evans has come back from the dead. Twice. Not figuratively. He was literally medically dead twice before the age of 22. Certain that music is what he is meant to do, after two times dancing through the space between life and death, there are few who will doubt this sense of purpose. It is also no surprise that one who has been so close to death makes music that is so vigorously, pleadingly resolute about living life while we have it. Evans has this urgency of life latent in his work, and telegraphs this message with a sound akin to a meld of Ryan Adams, Pink Floyd, and Tom Petty.

To relay the significance of his art, and life itself, Evans has teamed with Grammy-winning producer Noel Golden (who has worked with Matchbox Twenty, Willie Nelson, Sister Hazel, Edwin McCain, and others) to produce the 8-song EP, CIVILIZED, available at Evans' live shows and special appearances.

WD-HAN

WD-HAN is an alternative indie rock band based in Tampa Bay, Florida. The band took its original form with Cal Henry on guitar, jamming and writing with high school friends. In need of a name, WD-HAN (“We Don’t Have A Name”) was considered and loved instantly.

Over the following years as the band continued to write new music and play bigger and better gigs they started to build a following. With the addition of Lea Campbell on drums and Spencer Barnes as the band’s front man, they developed their own kind of pop rock sound heavily influenced by a love of classic rock and blues.

Mark Stone and The Dirty Country Band- For Stories EP Review

 

Mark Stone & the Dirty Country Band , from Minnesota, formed in 2012 as a solo project for Mark Stone himself. Since then, Stone (Guitar/Vocals) has acquired the musical talents of Todd Jameson (Bass), Johnny Strutt (Drums) to form The Dirty Country Band.

They are influenced by Southern Rock and Country, which is prevalent in the song structures and writing. However on their latest release “ For Stories” takes a different direction. The main focus is on good ol’ country rock with hard rock riffs and powerful beats. This EP sees the group coming into their own as a close knit outfit that is evident on here. The chemistry between the music is apparent from the beginning that these are men love their craft!

On first track Until Someone Remember my name is a nice country song that is relatable to a contingency of folk who want to pack in their jobs to play music. The overall structure of the track is a feelgood one steeped with elements of heavy guitar lines that are reminiscent of 70’s southern rock. And a strong, swinging rhythm that supplements Stone’s reflective lyrics.

When love goes to war is an acoustic track that is suitable for a long drive home along the highway. Stone shows his versatility with the guitar and on vocals that express raw emotion that will touch any heartstring in this song about falling out with a loved one. It is these samples of the ability to produce natural forms of motions through music that makes Stone a good songwriter.

The things that impress me the most about Mark Stone and The Dirty Country Band is the musical textures that plays off each other . Strutt’s drumming remains consistent throughout, acting like a metronome that dictates the rhythm. Furthermore, The intelligent lyrics that retain strong storytelling throughout.

Faster than they fall is a combination of Dirty Country ( Excuse the pun!) and Boogie Rock. The riff is a loud and simple juggernaut of a tune that will keep your feet swaying. The strong beats reflect Skynyrd in there pomp with driving rhythm section is like a train pounding the tracks at high speed. This is my favourite standout track that could easily be a breakthrough in the commercial rock charts with fans of 70s and 80’s southern rock .

 

And finally, before you are gone is a country/gospel track that is a nod to religious faith that introduces an organ section that adds depth to the melody vocal lines that make this a beautiful end to an accomplished outing for the dirty country band.

The eP is now available for pre- oreder on Itunes.https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/for-stories-ep/1343653581

You can catch the band on April 5th with the 2 dudes w/ acoustic guitars @ Neumann’s bar in St Paul, Minn

Limberlost

Formed in late 2010, original members, guitarist Ricky Dunn and drummer Mike Burt started to form a vision and create the foundation of the bands mission. Along with a lot of song ideas... Thin Clouds was born among them but it just wasn't clicking. 2013 enter vocalist Krystle Pyette and the tumblers all fell into place. She was the power punch and collaborator the songs needed.

Urban Groove Unit

When an experienced funk outfit adopts a young singer with a golden voice...that is the new UGU formula. After their first album "Street Talk" in 2010, Urban Groove Unit took a big turn by joining forces with Laetitia N'Diaye (Liz McComb), one of the hottest talents on the soul scene in France today. Check it out!

Asa Broomhall

Australia's own Rock/Roots larrikin; Asa Broomhall is about to give us his 5th independent album; ‘Jangle House’. Recorded in an iconic old Guitar Shop in Brisbane over the Easter 2011 break, ‘Jangle House’ was truly a labour of love. Recording in a historically musical place was just one reason for creating this album, as Asa's brothers house where previous albums had been recorded/mixed and where the studio was located was consumed by the January 2011 floods, and was subsequently condemned and demolished.

Emmeline

Hi! My name is Emmeline (rhymes with "Clemetine"), but you can call me Em.
I like long walks on the beach. I also like long drives with the windows down and the radio blaring. Preferably in the country, with quiet roads and lots of cows. I was born in Dallas, TX. It is, to this day, my favorite place in the world.
Music has always been a part of my life. I spend most of my free time playing instruments and writing songs, but I also like doing puzzles, reading books, and conducting random cooking experiments. We made banana bread French toast once. It was amazing.

 

Faintheart

Faintheart hails from the Sunshine State of Kansas. The Fly Over States. The Midwest. Faintheart's style combines the midwest upbringing to create emotive, introspective indie rock. That’s polished. With the release of their Self Titled EP it shows that Faintheart is here to deliver emotion, stories, authenticity, and ask a few questions along the way. Drawing from influences such as Death Cab For Cutie, The Killers, and Copeland the group culminates this sound with their first release to create art that hopefully impacts others as much as others have impacted Faintheart.

IOV

In 2011 Darren's focus changed and on top of playing tirelessly, he turned to writing, finding a new form of expression. On the first album “Something with Friends” as a listener you will experience some of the monumental moments, relationships and experiences that have challenged, inspired and defined Darren. Not only does Darren have a knack at capturing these pivotal moments, but his writing invites listeners in and allows them to relate with their own life altering experiences and relationships.

Limberlost Quick Review and Interview

Limberlost is a Female fronted Power Rock band from the Pacific Northwest Formed in late 2010, original members, guitarist Ricky Dunn and drummer Mike Burt decided to form a band that would make powerful lyrics and create magical music. The band released Thin Cloud, but felt there were missing pieces to the jigsaw. This all changed in 2013 when vocalist Krystle Pyette joined the band to create a balance in range and writing lyrics. The band was finally completed in 2016 with the addition of Bassist Ben Beman In Late 2016 after several single releases working with producer/engineer David Smith from Crash Bang Booom Productions. The band finished as runner up in the 2016 Seattle Wave Radio Jamming Challenge at the Hard Rock Café, as well as runners- ups in the 2017 Puget Sound Battle of the Band, alongside an appearance in the 105.3FM Local Music Project. Cirke Cherokee, a finalist in the Danish XFactor joined the team las year to provide depth and a dynamic to the band.
Limberlost are a mix of alternative rock, powerful vocals and guitar- driven rock. The band have released a succession of singles that listeners can find via Reverbnation and Soundcloud.


The opening sounds of drums that reverberate inside your temples of Long Shadows sets the tone for a beautiful 80’s-style hard rock track accompanied by the enchanting pinched harmonics of Dunn and Pyette’s impressive range that switches gears is an all-round rocker with huge riffs.

Thin Clouds is the group’s revised version of their first single. The listener gets an earlier example of the chemistry between vocalists - Krystel Pyette and Cirke Cherokee. This is a more up-tempo blues track with elements of gospel and soul. The women croon in tandem to the back outlay of fast guitars and catchy hooks.

Babylon is a soulful crooner with a tight rhythm section that slithers along with every breath expressed by the ever more strong vocal lines of Pyette. The addition of a keyboard solo is reminiscent of classic 70’s rock.

Not My Own is an anthemic track stocked full of raw emotion and atmospheric music that creates a picture of someone reaching out alone. This is a track that appeals to the more sensitive fans of ballads.
And Finally, The heavy hitting Hands up. A song full of tantalising groove, sensual vocals and hypnotic riffs. This could easily be the breakthrough hit for Limberlost

Limberlost Interview


How did the band come to meet The Old School Project?
“We actually submitted in the first Reverbnation campaign that The Old School Project did and were fortunate enough to be in their top 10 to earn a roster spot!”
Could you introduce yourselves to the Old School Project Listeners and new readers?
“Hello TOSP Listeners!! We are Limberlost, an original female fronted rock band from the Seattle area in Washington State, USA. We consist of Krystle Pyette on lead vocals, Cirke Cherokee on Backing Vocals, Ricky Dunn on lead Guitar, Ben Bemen on Bass Guitar, Mike Burt on Drums and Raymond Hayden on Keys.”


How did Limberlost form? And what was your inspirations to create the band?
“In late 2010, Mike and Ricky found each other on Craigslist looking to form an original song writing band. They went through a couple of false starts and then in 2013 they met up with Krystle who was leading Worship at a church they were attending. After a little while of playing together for the church, they along with their original bassist, Daniel, started to work together on writing material. In early 2016 they went into the studio with the first single Thin Clouds and it was shortly after that, that Daniel left the group. Along came Ben and then things just blew up from there. We added Keyboards in November 2016 and currently are blessed to have Raymond Hayden working with us and a year later came Cirke. We couldn’t be more excited about our future as a band!!”


How would you describe your sound to people unfamiliar with your music?
“It’s got elements of classic 80s 90s rock, maybe a Heart meets Zeppelin meets Deep Purple? Powerful Female vocal, guitar driven hooks and tenacious grooves!”


You want to write and produce great music with powerful lyrics, could you explain what inspires you to write?
“We have what we refer to as a “Mosaic” writing approach. In other words, everybody is encouraged in the writing process. A majority of our lyrics to date have come from Krystle and Mike. Each has written several of our current songs and can give something personal that drove the lyric. However, Ricky drives most of the melodies. The stuff we are currently working on now has some new twists with Ben, Cirke and Ray’s contributions. It’s cool because each song so far has been very unique. It just seems to come together in different ways.”

What message do you hope to make through your music?
“Hope! That grace exists and every day is yours to live so make it count!”


What tends to be your writing process?
“ We love playing together, so again it just happens. Good Chemistry along with a serious approach to one’s music, creates a pretty fertile field for creativity”


You have finished runner- up in several high profile competitions such as the 2016 Seattle wave radio jamming challenge at hard rock café , 2017 sound of the bands, and a finalist at 105.3fm local music project, how has this experience impacted on the band’s performances?
“Wow, yes we tend to be really good at second place…lol… The fact that our band has done so well so quickly has given us a lot of confidence to push forward and not spend a lot of time second guessing. Our fans have been great in supporting us and to be recognized not just as a good act but to have good songs is really humbling. It just makes us try to raise the bar every time we hit the stage.”


Limberlost will be embarking on a tour across the pacific northwest, what is a typical show from the band, and what are you looking forward the most about it?
“We love to play and to create new fans so getting out of our own area is an exciting prospect. We will also be travelling occasionally with our really good friends and super talented band Strangely Alright in 2018 so we are just eager to see what kind of fun and shenanigans we will be able to stir up together”.


Last summer, Limberlost added Danish X Factor finalist Cirke Cherokee as a back up vocalist. What impact has this had on the band’s overall sound?
“She has made a huge impact. Krystle has an incredible voice. Beautiful balance of range, control and power. Add Cirke, who has very similar strengths, and these two will blow your hair back.”


What is the meaning behind the band’s name?
“Limberlost comes from the story about the Limberlost swamp in Indiana that Ricky’s grandmother told him when she referred to the woods behind their house. The story was the legend of a man who was lost in the swamp and gave his will up to the Lord to find his way out and was lead to walk in a straight line which lead him out of the darkness. It also dove tails with a story Krystle read called The Girl of the Limberlost. And we also thought it sounded cool!”


How difficult is it for a band to break into today’s music industry?
“Extremely! First you have to find a bunch of super talented folks who all want to play together and work really hard and sacrifice almost everything. Then they have to write really good songs and keep sacrificing. There is SO much content bombarding the internet anymore that it is really hard to stick out. So if you are doing this to get rich…quit….lol. No seriously, you better love doing this and love the people you are doing it for and cherish the ones you are blessed to do it with. Write great songs! Be Consistent in all your efforts!!! HAVE FRIGGEN FUN!!!!!”


Can fans look forward to any new material?
“We are always writing!! We have a new one “See What You Want” that will be released in a couple months. A new cover that we are going to actually license and release in early summer and several in the hopper. Along with the release of all our material to date on one album titled “Limberlost Vol. 1” coming very soon.”

Few days left for the firts campaign of the season but we still counting submissions....

The Quixote Project

We are a neo-roots music outfit. From Rock to Rockabilly, Bluegrass to Blues we like to pull from traditional genres to blur the fine lines of modern music. "Frontman Jeff Selby and a revolving cast of musicians have distilled the multi-genre sounds of a beachfront music festival into a remarkably cohesive live set, with hints of bluegrass, folk, and rock in a style that would be pigeonholed as “jam” if the songwriting wasn’t so explicitly pop-oriented" says Dave Fox of MUSIC WITHOUT LABELS.

We searched for new members for few months and found Fiorelo (Guitar) and Steve (Drums). With this line up we recorded our debut album “No Way Back” in Italy in June 2011.

Heidi Burson

Heidi Burson’s story as an artist is one of shared human experience. Very early on, she felt the poignancy of the music of singers such as Etta James and Aretha Franklin. She was struck by the power and intensity with which they expressed the longing, which we all share, for love and acceptance. These influences, coupled with her own life experiences and a generous dusting of wry humor, have helped to forge a voice and style that is uniquely fascinating.

The States

The States. It represents an idea that we are all apart of a community that has the freedom of expressing ourselves through music. Our name isn't necessarily related to the United States or anything necessarily patriotic even though there are those themes throughout our brand. Rather it's more about the representation of the states of emotions we are all in from time to time. Happy, sad, introspective, broken, angry, depressed, or in love, we wanted our music to reach out to everyone.

Hedera


Sharing a collective love for vintage timbres and instrumental variety, digital processing and samples are absent throughout their performances and recordings, instead preferring the likes of reel-to-reel effects and djembe percussion. With a name translating to “Common Ivy” in Latin and a logo representing a new approach to traditional mediums, Hedera’s persona is reflected in their imagery: a vibrant, multicolored ivy leaf. The entirety of the band’s art direction is designed by lead guitarist Anthony Formisano.
