Scream for me Slingers...

It's F... Friday!!

Great music for your weekend boys and girls..Check them out!

 

Mikalyn Hay

Mikalyn is a unique artist, old soul and world weary and yet so young and fresh. She comes at every song with a deep sense of herself as an artist with an alternative view of what is cool and classic in the same breath. Her haunting voice and melodies and harmonies are instinctive and Mikalyn operates at a speed and capacity at a level much beyond her young age.  Mikalyn combines this natural ability with relentless learning and is constantly seeking to collaborate and study from the best.  Already a seasoned performer, she spends weekend jamming at open mics accompanying herself on the keys doing originals and covers ranging from Radiohead  to Cohen.


White Label Analog

The result is an eclectic group of songs that seems to pull as much from pop rock traditions like The Killers as they do from indie bands like Two Door Cinema Club and Modest Mouse. Songs like “Rainmaker” retain infectious melodies while simmering with big rock bombast. In an era of convergence between indie rock and pop music, White Label Analog is the daring alliance between the two. Call it indie rock for the poptimist generation.
White Label Analog is not worried about trying to fit in to any genre labels or follow any trends in music. “Trying to copy or chase what's already happening is like chasing a moving target,” Didear says. “We just want to create honest music that is fun, engaging, but still has a little attitude.”


Kris Angelis

Kris Angelis has been living musically her whole life. “My mom says I’ve been singing since before I could talk. I would sing melodies when I didn’t actually know words.” Growing up on a farm in Florida, Angelis spent her childhood playing, running around the farm, and making up songs with her twin sister. They composed their first song at the age of three -- and it lives on now, interwoven into one of Kris’s more recent works.

Menage

The Ferreira siblings spent there whole childhood travelling between Toronto Canada, and Small town Portugal where their heritage and much of their family still lived. Through being divided between Canadian, indoor boredom, and European culture, the common thread that was present on both sides of the globe, was the influence of the music that they were exposed to.
The household was soon filled with a drum set, a keyboard, and some traditional portuguese guitars. As quite common, the kids grew apart, Bela, recording piano based song ideas, keeping to herself, performing wherever she could . From various new york city open mics to touring in Canada.
Brothers Gabriel and Basilio kicked around Toronto, Los Angeles, started bands, fought, would self destruct, and do it again.


Alissa Musto

Being the daughter of a real "piano man", Alissa’s interest in performing began at four years old when she begged her father, Billy Musto, to go to work with him. They made a deal---if she learned to play the piano, she could come. Less than a year later and equipped with a wooden block to reach the pedals, Alissa won her first piano competition performing Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. Eager to follow in her father’s footsteps and adding rock and vocals to her arrangements, Alissa grabbed the attention of local talent shows, NBC's Spotlight on the Student Artist series and eventually, the national television series, "America's Most Talented Kid".


Dylan Swinson

Dylan Swinson began playing guitar at the age of 10 in his childhood home in Summerville, South Carolina. He was inspired when his mother would play some of her favorite cds while dropping him off at school. These included albums from Better Than Ezra, The Cure, and Edwin McCain. One day, she puts in Jeff Buckley's Grace and Dylan was immediately hooked on the album. After watching Buckley's "Live in Chicago" DVD, he knew he wanted to learn how to be a musician.

In 2011, Dylan moved back to Charleston, South Carolina the day after his high school graduation. He began playing open mics around the area while attending The Art Institute of Charleston for Filmmaking. After graduating from The Art Institute in 2014, Dylan used his Graduation money to record his first EP "Freedom & Solitude", leaning toward an Acoustic Alternative Singer/Songwriter feel. It was released on July 18, 2015.


Chase K

When Chase K writes a song, he writes with purpose. His music is unabashedly pop with undeniable hooks, and he owns it.

Billy Thompson (Band)

Billy Thompson’s performances have captured audiences in the U.S. and throughout Europe, setting the tone for this veteran musician’s songwriting, singing, and guitar playing, both live and in the studio. In his original music, he combines world-class slide guitar, searing licks and soulful vocals with a unique amalgamation of styles including blues, rock, funk, New Orleans and soul. Some say, “It’s like Hendrix meets Little Feat!”

Billy has played with legends such as Little Milton, Albert King, Earl King and Art Neville, while opening for the likes of Robert Cray, B.B. King, Sonny Landreth, The Neville Brothers and Joe Cocker, to name a few. He has performed on Barbara Walter’s “The View” and with the San Diego Symphony. He also performed for the grand opening of L.A.’s House of Blues. Billy has been invited to play with such icons as the Doobie Brothers, Bill Payne, John Mooney and Ron Holloway. He has provided lead guitar for the Broadway show “Ain’t Nothin’ but the Blues” and for Award winning playwright Keith Glover’s Bluesical, “Thunder Knocking on the Door,” Billy also served as musical supervisor for Geva Theatre’s 2015 Journey to the Son in Rochester, NY. A tribute to Son House, BT and band also played the festival.


Jason Sees Band

Jason Sees Band's fifth installment has essentially re-defined their sound. A light hearted, electric guitar driven, rock collection. It sharply contradict Jason's usual themes of solace and introspection. Troubadour roots be dammed, Jason rocks here and Seattle's indie music community is finally showing signs of coming to life.

"I tried to lighten up the conceptualization. I picked up my 335 and haven't put it down" Jason says, as we catch up back stage before a show at High Dive, Seattle, WA. "These are all contributing factors to this new direction of music. But I tried to hold on to my roots while progressing, in the middle of some of the more light hearted songs you will still here my usual rhetorical style for those that care to listen."

Liron New Single Review

Once again Liron wows us all with her silky and sultry vocals. The newest single “Bad Intentions” brings out the powerful person inside us all. The song battles the nature of toxic relationships and how hard it is to walk away from them. It's aimed at both genders as toxic relationships affect us all and the song itself could be hailed as a self empowerment anthem.

Similar to the last single “Piña Coladas”, Liron carries on the fast paced beat and the radio pop sound. However, the story behind the song carries a trace of heartbreak and understanding that was missing in the previous tracks. The powerful story enables the listener to feel the emotions that Liron was going through when writing the lyrics. I'm sure you’ve all gone through a period of time with a certain somebody that didn't feel right or just wasn't working out in general. This song tackles the pain and fear of breaking away form something that you've known and been comfortable with for so long. The mature theme of the song allows listeners of all ages to relate to the feeling of heartbreak which is common during life.

Lirons vocals reach a new high in “Bad Intentions”. I mentioned before that in the earlier tracks, Liron lacked the power and confidence behind her voice, but recently we’ve seen a new side to the vocal all together. Gone is the Musician who once wrote about puppy loves and hid behind the beat of the song, and is now replaced by a Musician who is proud and self assured, who writes about the self emancipation of men and women alike.

Bad intentions includes everything needed to make a great pop song. The vocal compared with the past paced tempo creates the perfect dance track. The softer vocal compared to the snappy Paced tempo creates a layer of sophistication unseen on her previous works before “piña coladas”. The difference keeps the listener induced in a musical coma when the sound reaches their ears.

Once again Musician Liron has gone above and beyond the expectation we had for her next single. Bad intentions sounds like a pop song you would hear of the radio today and overall a Liron has done a great job perfecting her sound. I thoroughly enjoyed the latest single and I'm ready for the next!

SLEEPWAR

Hailing from the desert expanse of Phoenix, Arizona, indie rock band Sleepwar pushes indie rock to another level by combining new wave and synth-pop influence with lyrics speaking to addiction, recovery and the inherent struggles of modern life. Sleepwar is led by Roger Willis (vocals) with Tim Woodbridge (producer, keys), James Allen (bass), Mark Pfister (guitar), and Brendan McGuinness (drums).

Utilizing lush synthesizer soundscapes, Sleepwar produces a sound that is both familiar yet unique. Fans of the five-piece rock outfit have likened their music to that of Tame Impala, the Killers, Coldplay, Imagine Dragons and Local Natives.

 

The Great Heights Band

The Great Heights Band formed in 2014 and signed with CI Records soon after the release of their first EP, “Weird Thoughts”, and its hit single, “Portland”. The band has actively toured the US with bands including The Pink Spiders, Carousel Kings, and Icarus the Owl as well as sharing the stage with Andrew WK, Unwritten Law, Never Shout Never, New Politics, Bayside, and many more.

The Great Heights Band’s sophomore effort, rad-pop., is big and bold. The album, set to be released on April 20 via CI Records, brings together a diverse mix of pop, punk, nerd, and indie rock, with nods to a retro aesthetic and good old fashioned rock and roll. After touring for a couple of years on their debut LP, Song in Eastern Standard Timing (SEIST), the band wanted to follow it up with a record that was fun and eclectic, but also stood out on its own. “We honed the sound of this record by writing, demoing, and tearing apart dozens of songs and arrangements,” says singer/guitarist Neal Karkhanis. After demoing about 50 songs, the band fully recorded the best 18 before finalizing the album’s track listing at 11, with one bonus track each for CD and vinyl.

 

Last Daze

All great stories should start with a song. The song that starts this story was “Make It Alright”, penned in her college dorm room by a 19 year old Katy Cole. The song was one of many in a notebook that showed up at jam session in an old River House in the Adirondack Mountains. Chris Schempp was one of the musicians, and immediately connected with Cole, quickly adding guitar riffs and responses to her vocal lines. Before the end of the session, the group had recorded 4 songs. It only seemed natural to record more. 
Fast forward 10 years later, through numerous band names, side projects, and other musical stimulation- along with a total of 30 recorded original songs, Schempp and Cole, accompanied by an ever-changing line up of talented musicians, joined forces with producer, Shooter Jennings to record their new album, “Symbols & Snares” as Last Daze. “Symbols & Snares” was recorded in the Echo Park region of LA at Station House Studio, led by engineer, Mark Rains.  
While in LA, Jennings sought to bring out the songs that had the most feeling and raw emotion in them. He wanted to capture the intimate moments described in Katy Cole’s lyrics.

 

 

Fort Defiance

Fort Defiance is an Americana duo from Nashville, TN, consisting of Jordan Eastman and Laurel Lane.  Hailed for their honest songwriting, timeless harmonies, and high-energy stage performance, the husband and wife have been touring relentlessly, playing over 250 shows a year.  Their passion and grassroots work ethic has garnered heavy attention from around the globe, causing critics to call them "Breathtakingly seductive" (That Music Magazine) and "Good, honest, and full of real heart" (Orlando Weekly).


Outlander

From a fresh start to award-winners, now to seasoned festival performers, Outlander’s two years together has taken their unique chemistry around the country and their music into the hearts of new fans.

No strangers to large events, Outlander have travelled around the UK playing at festivals including the C2C Festival at the O2 Arena London, Weyfest, ButeFest, the Tall Ships Race Blyth (Northumberland’s largest event), and many others.

Their musicianship and engaging presence are apparent in their refined and precise live performances which have seen them perform alongside artists from a variety of different genres, including Jools Holland and His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, Alison Moyet, The Wedding Present, We Are Scientists, and Buzzcocks. In 2016 Outlander was also chosen to support Pop/Soul legends Simply Red on their Big Love Stadium Tour.


State Line Syndicate

Meet State Line Syndicate – an atomic-blast of energy packed into a three-piece band with music rooted hard in the vibrant sounds of the power-pop /rock & punk genres. The current line-up creating their electric-vibe includes Makeshift Mike (Guitars, Vocals), Mikey Virgin (Drums) and Joe E (Bass, Backing Vocals); each armed with a determination to make their music career last a lifetime…
Since the official formation of State Line Syndicate in 2013, this band has continued to electrify audiences and have the crowd chanting their songs enthusiastically back to the stage. With a massively-catchy songwriting style that blends the sum of their influences like Green Day, Weezer and early Blink-182 into their own unique and explosively energetic sound – they’ve ensured one-hundred percent quality in every note and tone by keeping State Line Syndicate a unified three-piece. That focus on musical-excellence and breaking new, exciting ground within the scene has spread like wildfire – their Facebook page is already bursting at the seams with well-over 2000 fans joining in well-under two-year’s time!


Happy Otherwise

Josie Johnson moved from Minnesota to Portland, Oregon in 2010. She and her boyfriend rented a basement apartment on Failing Street. Her boyfriend returned to the land of 10,000 lakes. Josie stayed and wrote about the fateful street. A friend commenting on her sad songs asked, “You’re happy otherwise, right?”

“Failing Street” is just one of the songs she recorded at Jackpot! Recording Studio where fate intervened once again and brought her together with sound engineer Kendra Lynn and bass guitarist Adam Justin Raitano. A bond was formed, a band was born, and now they are Happy Otherwise.

The trio is a blend of poignant lyrics and vocals delivered with theatrical style by Johnson, complimented by the heartfelt harmonies and eclectic percussion of Lynn and held together with artistry by the bass guitar of Raitano.


Cassandra Cole

Minneapolis based singer-songwriter Cassandra Cole doesn't ask for your attention; she demands it.  Her diverse tonal palette and classic vocal stylings are reassuringly relevant. Influenced by life's unique perfume of people and place, Cole's music traces the temperature of her own physical journey. From sun-drenched Californian plains to blizzard-misty Minnesotan highways, her voice joins up every temperature in-between like an enchanting map of musical waypoints. As a child, Cole would drift away in records of crackly escapist wonder.  If Garland and Holiday set the foundations, Sheeran and Apple provided the scaffold for her own musical development. As a result, her songwriting is an eclectic blend of melodic soulfulness and modern edge.

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.

The Ides of June

The Ides of June has shaped its sound by combining the tastes and styles of its member's four distinct backgrounds.
With rock solid percussion stemming from that So-Cal/Grunge scene (and just a taste of west coast hip hop) meshed with the heavy, psychedelic riffs indicative of 90s grunge and modern stoner rock you get just half of the sound. Throw in some traditional blues melded with newer blues/rock guitar solos and the thunderous blues rock bass lines (occasionally thickened by fuzz that would make Chris Wolstenholme proud) and you get the completed grunge blues sound that is The Ides of June.


War Twins

War Twins has become known for their dynamic live set full of passionate energy, rock n' roll soul and deep electronics. A growing buzz has taken them from their hometowns on the east coast to a string of successful nationwide tours and their new home in Los Angeles.

The duo was founded by singer/songwriter Gaetana and drummer/producer James Grey.  Beginning in early 2013, the band built a bed in the back of a ‘98 Plymouth Voyager, and promoted their first demo on a tour that took them to over eighty cities. Since, they've performed close to 500 shows across the country to date.

Most recently, War Twins has supported international acts such as Wolf Alice, Alien Ant Farm and Filter, with additional performances at SXSW, Catskill Chill, Slingshot and other festivals.


The Strips

The Strips began their rock n' roll career in Eau Claire, Wisconsin in 2013 where they came together due to their love of music and incredibly cold winters, which allowed them to spend hours fine tuning their sound. Starting out as a three piece band which included Trey Sharpe on rhythm guitar and vocals, Steven Greenfield on lead guitar, and John "The Panda" Nichols on the drums. In the summer of 2014, The Strips became a four piece with the addition of Billy Hettler on bass and keyboards. Taking inspiration from rock legends such as Led Zeppelin, Kings of Leon, The Strokes, The Pixies, and The Black Keys, The Strips performed classic "Basement Shows" for their friends and students of the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire.  The Strips released their first EP "Welcome to Our Basement" in the fall of 2014 where you can hear their unique sound.


Stolen Thunder

Stolen Thunder is a four-piece alternative rock band formed in Santa Barbara, California, in 2011.  Early influences range from Queen to Metallica to Alice in Chains.
The band practiced for years at Rockshop Academy, under the direction of George Pendergast of Dishwalla. Stolen Thunder went on to win the most votes in a VH1 nationwide music video contest (for dosomething.org) challenging the lack of funding for music in our public schools. No stranger to live audiences, the band has performed at such notable venues as Rockstock 2013 & 2014, the Arlington Theater, Ojai Libbey Bowl, the Lobero Theater, Cold Spring Tavern, Whisky-a-Go-Go, House of Blues and Hard Rock Cafe.

 

Ryder Green

From blistering renditions of blues-infused rock to sublime vintage blues, and everything in between, Ryder Green captivates audiences with his virtuoso guitar and passion for playing. His distinctive tone, infectious original songs and vocals, and attention-grabbing covers ignite crowds of all ages.

He can deliver a stunningly raw emotional blues solo, or a hard-driving rendition of Freddie King’s “Going Down” that has become a signature number for him. Unleashing masterful journeys up and down the neck reminiscent of those that have come before him, he is yet unquestioningly playing from his own heart and soul. In the zone on stage, all eyes and ears become riveted.

Highly intuitive and perceptive, he loves playing off the energy of other musicians. Bringing a turbo-boosted “old soul” vibe to the stage, he’s known for outstanding improvisational skills on the fly.


Ryan Berg

Ryan Berg & The Velvet Ears are an acoustic driven Blues/Jazz band from Dallas Texas. The project began when singer-songwriter Ryan Berg moved back to his hometown from San Marcos, Texas. Shortly after, Ryan began playing duos around the metroplex with lead guitarist, Glen Fleischman throughout 2014 when they met drummer, Charles Alexander. Since then, The Velvet Ears expanded it's perimeters by collaborating with local artists like Nick Snyder, Patrick Smith, Matt McClellan, Kirk Hampton, as well as Austin, Texas band, The Mammoths. In 2016 The Velvet Ears began working with Ken Welker of 13th Floor Music, DFW booking agency. In the Summer of 2017 Ryan Berg & The Velvet Ears were pleased to announce the release of their debut full-length album titled "The Velvet Ears".


BJ Wilbanks

Georgia-based BJ Wilbanks's authentic exploration of love and the pursuit of enlightenment has been referred to as “Back Porch Soul,” fusing the musical roots of Americana, Motown and Delta Blues into an intoxicating blend of Southern Rock.

BJ's solo work explores the intimate, raw, emotional feeling of the gospel, blues, and 70s rock he was raised on as a child. BJ has also been enjoying regional popularity with his band, Gibson Wilbanks, who have opened for artists like Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, and Diane Durrett.

BJ’s gregarious personality is palpable on record, often channeling other charismatic musical personalities like Otis Redding, Sturgill Simpson and current retro revivalists like Leon Bridges. His self-titled album, BJ Wilbanks (released April 28th) captures the refined analogue production qualities of yesteryear, complete with swampy southern bass and Stax-inspired horn sections. It is of a reminiscent of bygone era when music was so good, it transcended genre.

“The best music brings the most unlikely people together,” BJ asserts. “It's music from the soul.”

 

 

LOW VOLTS

Three-time San Diego Music Award winner Low Volts is giving the music world a much needed shock to the heart with his fuzzed-out, one-man, dirty blues-rock n’ roll performances. Armed with only a gritty old slide-guitar, thunderous kick drum laden with tambourines and dark, howling vocals, Low Volts creates a thick and heavy sound equivalent to the force of a four-piece band. Great-grandson of a traveling gospel singer who was framed for murder and sentenced to the ELECTRIC CHAIR, Low Volts would not exist today if it wasn’t for a key witness that helped pardon his distant kin in the final hours of his uncertain fate. Doc wrote and published a book about his story titled 'Up From The Depths' "The Miracle that saved me from the electric chair". This is the story that inspired the stage moniker 'LOW VOLTS'.


The Hawkeyes

The Hawkeyes of Pittsburgh PA are one of the fastest growing bands in the Mid-Atlantic region, forging an honest and unique sound with a pure blend of Heartland rock, Rustbelt grit, and Americana soul. The band puts on an incredibly exciting live show displaying a full-throated passionate sound, unforgettable songs, and pure rock n roll swagger.

The Hawkeyes have logged thousands of miles nationally for the past 4 years and have shared stages with such household names such as Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Marcy Playground, Lit, Blackberry Smoke, Rich Robinson (The Black Crowes), Bob Mould (Husker Du), Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real, The Clarks, Bonnie Bishop, Puddle of Mudd, Two Cow Garage and Wild Adriatic.

The Hawkeyes are currently working on their 3rd full-length record with acclaimed producer Sean McDonald at Red Medicine Recording Studio (the Clarks, the Damnwells, Cowboy Junkies).


Kenny Hada & The Others

The four brave souls that make up Kenny Hada and The Others were brought together by the passion and drive of their fearless leader, Kenny Hada. After years of observation Kenny came to the conclusion that he had something to say and that if he was going to say it loud enough he needed a select group of talented and likewise driven individuals. After scouring his vast network of artists and players, each possessing a supernatural gift to make music he scraped the bottom of the barrel and came up with The Others.

Ryan Salata

We produce our music with vintage amps and guitars. We always endeavour to create a true sound, all valve all loud!!!

Jessi Campo’s distinctive and memorable voice plus glamorous attire compliment her heartfelt performances and make her an incredible entertainer with a radiant personality who captures all audiences. Often compared to Natalie Cole and Etta James in her vocal style, she is an indisputably exceptional talent, and therefore she has shared stages with Michael McDonald, Neil Sedaka, Beach Boys and other famous artists.

Handsome Midnight focuses on relevant topics, and an engaging live show that can be enjoyed on a large festival stage, or a classic rock’n roll venue. Formed in early 2011, each member had already been a part of the scene for over a decade, sharing the stage with acts such as Fastball, Bowling for Soup, Throw the Fight, and other established artists. Their focus from the beginning was on a live show that performed as strongly as their album.

Better Than Grey

We’re called Better Than Grey and we’re a pop/punk band from Sofia, Bulgaria. We were established in the beginning of 2010  by our vocal Justin Case, Eddie (Bass) and FranX (Guitar) after our previous band split up. 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. Afterwards in September Steve went to study drums in Netherlands for four years, so we had to find another drummer. Few months later MonX came along and so this is our current lineup.

As a teenager, he played in local bands before joining "Neon", featuring Curt Smith (Tears For Fears), Pete Byrne (Naked Eyes) and Rob Fisher (Climie/Fisher).

Mrs. Hips

Mrs. Hips is a band from the Netherlands with the vocalist Simone Roerade and a trio behind her that surveyed most genres in every which way but found themselves in a smooth, jazzy, soulful approach of playing behind Simone. She’s an exciting lady who used to be the lead-singer of world renown Alto Saxofonist Candy Dulfer but had her hits with her own band “Hips“ in the 90ties with even a nr. 1 hit in Spain. Now we see an experienced unit, Jazzy keys with a streetwise rhythm section, nevertheless with the power of a full soulband, refined and dynamic.

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.
