Mishéll

If you're a fan of Eurovision, then you'll definitely recognise the name Mishéll. Not only did this Ukrainian singer/songwriter make it to the National Selections for Eurovision in 2006 and 2007, but she also dominated other talent shows. It seems her music captured Ukraine in 'Your Face Sounds Familiar' 2013, and she was awarded second-place at the 2008 'New Wave' song contest.

Mishéll released her official video for 'Never Be' in January, 2018. She is currently working on a full-length album.

https://www.facebook.com/mishellsinger/ - a well-maintained Facebook account with various photographs and videos for viewers. The profile lacks a biography, and there is little information regarding the artist; however, the necessary information is available with an email address. No forwarding links to other websites, which is disappointing.

https://www.instagram.com/mishellsinger/ - a very well-maintained Instagram account with both personal and professional pictures. Mishéll engages well with her audience here, but does not cross the boundary of over-friendly with her followers. A link to her YouTube is available, but there is no information about her or links to other websites. More links would be useful to help followers view more profiles.

https://xn--mishll-eva.com/ - as with the social media profiles, Mishéll's official account has minimal background information. It does, however, provide links to the social media profiles with YouTube videos and a contact box - that's it. Mishéll is currently recording, so I'm unsure if gig listings would be placed on this site. My recommendation is to place more information here on this site, such as an 'about me' page, some event listings (or a page for pending listings), and a press section. Rather place items here than hope for people to visit the social media accounts.

 

Mayssa

A US citizen born in Lebanon, Mayssa Karaa is the embodiment of Middle Eastern influences merged with the US-dominated global pop/rock culture. Her enchanting multi-octave voice defines a new generation of musical inclusion with her songs connecting the origins of her homeland to the adopted home of California. In 2015, Mayssa Karaa received a Grammy Award nomination. Mayssa released the first track, 'Broken Lines', off her new album in May 2018.

Mayssa released the official video of 'Broken Lines' in September 2018.

https://www.facebook.com/MayssaKaraa/ - this Facebook profile is very well-maintained with regular updates. The majority of the updates are press-related, and the audio-visual items (videos and pictures) focus on live performances. All contact details and personal information is available, along with Twitter and Instagram widgets allowing visitors to view these profiles without leaving Facebook. This is a highly professional profile and offers something for both fans and publicists.

https://www.instagram.com/mayssakaraa/ - a regularly updated Instagram account with various personal and professional pictures. Personal information is absent and there is no link to any other online accounts or websites. It's good for engaging with followers, but links to other accounts would be recommended.

https://www.mayssakaraa.com/ - a highly professional official website with everything you could want available on the landing page. Mayssa has background information, videos, press links, contact information, newsletter subscription, a music playlist and links to all social media is available without needing to leave the first page.

Franklin Boone

Franklin Boone is a singer/songwriter hailing from Durham, North Carolina. While he seems to lean towards an indie rock/alternative style with his music, this is not necessarily the sound he presents all the time. Based on his wide musical influences, Franklin has developed a unique, multi-genre sound that comprises jazz, indie rock, folk and rock. Franklin's aim is to share his music and take the listener on an exploration of the human experience from alternate perspectives. He wishes to bring life to others by sharing his gift.

Franklin Boone recently released the demo of his song 'Everything' on iTunes.

https://www.facebook.com/franklinboonemusic/ - the Facebook account is a regularly updated one with an array of photographs, videos and press-related posts. Several of the videos are covers, which is always enjoyable to watch as a fan. The account has a Reverbnation app sharing all videos, press photographs, event listings and a music playlist. My one concern is the lack of personal information and contact details. He does have a link to his official website, but more details to other social media accounts would be useful.

https://www.instagram.com/delanorroosevelt/ - one thing I dislike regarding professional social media accounts is when the handle is completely alternate to the artist's name. While Franklin indicates his official website and name in the personal information section, the account may be overlooked because of the handle. The account is also poorly maintained with only five posts made in 2018.

http://franklinboonemusic.com/ - the official website is well-maintained with access to music, event listings, a music playlist, videos, personal information and social media links on the landing page. A menu is available to direct you to specific sections, which is useful to avoid scrolling down. The press image background is attractive making it an aesthetically pleasing website to peruse; however, there are no contact details.

 

ROMII

Pop superstar ROMII, previously known as ROMY, has never been afraid of hard work. Trained in all forms of performing arts (singing, acting and dancing) from a young age onwards, ROMII wrote her first song at the age of seven; once the bug bit, there was no stopping her! Working with industry professionals such as Savage, Bad Boy Records and T-Pain, this Los Angeles/Brisbane-based artist has been carving a name for herself on an international scale. Sworn to remain independent, ROMII self-produced debut single 'Wild Heart' received high acclaim from radio stations across the globe. Her performance of the song at the Queensland Music Awards 2017 won her the title of 'Urban Song of the Year'.

ROMII released her single 'Cupid Love' in September 2018.

https://www.facebook.com/whoisromii/ - this Facebook account is very well-maintained with posts made on an almost daily basis. The posts tend to focus on press and promotion, as do the videos and pictures. Event details are easily found, but regarding personal details, ROMII provides basic information with a biography, link to official website and email address. I would recommend links to additional social media accounts for the visitor's convenience. It should also be noted that the 'BandPage' app no longer works.

https://www.instagram.com/whoisromii/ - a well-maintained Instagram account with both professional and personal posts; however, more professional and press images than personal. While little information is available in the Instagram 'about me' section, ROMII has placed a linktree hyperfollow URL with access to all of her online accounts.

https://www.whoisromii.com/ - the official website is a basic landing page with a press image, expired countdown and links to social media accounts. It's evident that ROMII has ignored this website and I would recommend updating it by at least removing the expired countdown.

Artists To Keep Your Eye On

Rai Kah Mercury

 

Rai Kah Mercury is a three-piece blues-rock band hailing from Staffordshire, England. Defining their music as both 'delicate and chaotic glory', the band members captivate listeners through the complex web they weave in their melodies. Influences range from Joy Division to Radiohead and Crazy House; however, once you heard the artists start to play, you will discover signature pieces that pure Rai Kah Mercury.

Rai Kah Mercury is:

Tomas Crean on guitar and lead vocals.
Reese Schaefer on bass.
Joshua Anthony Lowe on drums.

Rai Kah Mercury released their debut single, 'Terror Incognita', in September 2018, which was well received by audiences.

https://www.facebook.com/raikahmercury/ - the band maintains their Facebook site well and keeps it frequently updated with gig listing and media exposure. They have an array of videos and photos, as well as all information required for contacting the band.

ReverbNation - a good and simple Reverbnation profile page acting as an official website. Clear access to music, photos, videos and gig listings (including Google maps). Great for both fans and press to follow.

 

Emily Lockett

 

Emily Lockett is a singer/songwriter from Stoke-on-Trent, UK. Using a style somewhere between folk and modern pop, Emily has sincerity to her voice that is endearing. Having received acclaim from different music blogs and performing live on radio stations such as BBC Radio Stoke and Cannock Choice Radio, Emily is building a name for herself.

Emily recently won the British Country Airplay's 'Artist of The Year 2018 Peoples Vote'.

https://www.facebook.com/EmilyLockettMusic/ - regularly updated with posts regarding new gigs, media exposure and mentions of upcoming plans. Many performance videos available with photographs for fans to enjoy; however, the contact information is limited.

https://www.emilylockett.co.uk/ - the official website is more informative than Emily's social media platforms. A list of upcoming gigs is immediately available with information of the event, as well as a playlist of Emily's music. The news link below is updated regularly, and you can see that this website is managed by Emily through the personal writing style.

 

All From Nothing

 

All the way from Emporia, Kansas come five young Americans to form the rock band All From Nothing. Mixing alternative, modern and hard rock styles, the five-piece are slowly building a fan base while playing gigs, writing music and releasing videos left, right and centre. Their influences range from pop-punk icons Blink 182 to alternative rockers Rise Against.

All From Nothing are:

Jeff Kitselman on lead vocals.
Sage Thurston on guitar and backing vocals.
Gabriel Maruda on guitar and backing vocals.
Josh Pavlik on bass.
James Lee on drums.

All From Nothing released their video 'Burning Trees' on October 11th, 2018.

https://www.facebook.com/AllFromNothing/ - the social media account is well-maintained with regular updates on releases, gigs, and further media exposure. An array of photographs and videos are available allowing fans to view band performances. The appropriate amount of band contact information is available, with some personal features to the 'about' section making it a little less business-like.

https://www.reverbnation.com/AllFromNothing - Reverbnation accounts are ideal as band websites because the site has demarcated sections devoted to shows, music playlists and a band biography. The site is updated regularly, but not as regularly as the Facebook account.

 

Purusa

Burying the hatchet is always a good thing, as long as it's used as a metaphor and not a real hatchet buried in someone's head. Strong evidence of this is the indie rock four-piece from Portland, Oregon, known as Purusa. The band formed in 1999 and from 2000 to 2003 experienced rapid success as a national act releasing two albums, touring across the West coast, and even releasing an advance single for their third album featuring Ken Stringfellow of The Posies. Unfortunately, it would be over a decade before the much anticipated third album hit the stands when the band made a triumphant return in 2015 at the Aladdin Theater in Portland. Purusa now have a licensing deal with Merina Film Company and continue to write music moving onward with the unique indie rock sound.

Purusa are:

Kris Kirkman on guitar and lead vocals.
Zach Hinkelman on guitar.
Andrew Marshall on bass.
Andy King on drums.

https://www.facebook.com/purusapdx/ - a well-maintained social media account with an array of photographs and videos. Gig listing is available, along with links to other social media and different contact details. This is highly informative and isn't too formal, so you feel as if you are learning more about the band while still engaging on a personal level.

http://www.purusaband.com/ - a well-designed website with easy-to-view colour scheme. Each section of the website is easily reached via the menu, along with a full streaming of their social media accounts on the site. Unless you have a limited data package and have problems downloading graphic backgrounds, this is a great website.

River Lynch and The Spiritmakers

 

River Lynch and The Spiritmakers is a tale of one singer-songwriter who decided to follow a dream instead of sticking to society's mainstream ideals. After realising he was more of a musician than an academic, River Lynch left college to embark on a solo career for approximately three years. In 2015, he decided it was time to move beyond singer-songwriter status combining his talents with friends; thus, River Lynch and The Spiritmakers were born. A unique combination of rock 'n' roll, blues and rock, the young men from Rochester, New York have released a single and performed with multiple touring acts including Jesse Dayton.

River Lynch and The Spiritmakers are:

River Lynch on guitar and lead vocals.
Schuyler Skuse on bass.
Tim Leverett on drums.

River Lynch and The Spiritmakers released their single, 'Straight Through' in October 2017.

https://www.facebook.com/riverlynchmusic/ - an informative social media account with a great focus on gigs. One exciting feature on this account is the Reverbnation widget with the band's full EPK available, including press review quotes, links to other social accounts and access to music. While it might not be as personalised as some other accounts, the EPK widget is a great feature.

https://www.riverlynch.com/ - the website has all contact, press, and biography information, along with links to their social media accounts. Once again, there's a link to their EPK which is wonderful for press purposes. However, the website has a video background, so it may be difficult to upload if the internet connection is bad or the user has a low data package.

 

Trey Connor

Trey Connor is a young pop-rock artist hailing from Hartland, Michigan. He began his career in music at age 15 as the front man for modern rock band Bulletproof; however, after two EP releases and a music award, Trey decided to pursue a solo career in the pop-rock genre. In late 2016, Trey released his debut solo EP with producer Tommee Profitt. Since then, he has released two music videos, a single, and another EP. This year, Trey is relocating to Austin, Texas, and indicates that he will be beginning another step in his musical experience. His influences include Skid Row, Goo Goo Dolls, and Foo Fighters.

Trey Connor's most recent release is his music video for 'My Ghosts' in April 2018.

https://www.facebook.com/TreyConnorMusic/ - Trey's social media account could be likened to a personal Facebook account. It is well-maintained and shares many videos not only of gigs but of covers with personal messages in the descriptions. Links to other social media accounts are available, along with contact details and information about himself. The account also has a Reverbnation app with an EPK, so fans have access to music and press reviews.

http://www.treyconnor.com/index.html - a well-structured site with a clear menu, easy-to-view setting and access to all multimedia. Streaming from other social media sites is available, along with links to charities Trey supports which is a nice, personalised touch.

 

White Label Analog

White Label Analog is an indie pop foursome hailing from the city of Austin in Texas. They released their debut EP in September 2016, which prompted a tour from Austin to the Pacific Northwest and down the West Coast of the US. According to Paul Driscoll from RadioBDC, White Label Analog "created a sound that echoes some of the greats in the indie and alternative genres, while remaining uniquely their own". By 2017, White Label Analog's tracks were featured in MTV shows, and the single 'Where Have You Been' was licensed to feature in the film 'My Ranger'.

White Label Analog is:

Chris Didear on lead vocals.
Heath Macintosh on drums and vocals.
Chal Boudreaux on guitar and vocals.
Mike Fisher on bass.

White Label Analog released their latest single 'Everybody Knows' in September 2018.

https://www.facebook.com/whitelabelanalog/ - a well-maintained and personalised social media account. The videos provided offer insight into the band's experiences, and lots of information is available for live events. A significant focus on community engagement, and good links to contact information and other social media accounts. Overall, a really good Facebook account.

https://www.whitelabelanalog.com/ - while there is a carefully laid-out menu to music, merch and gigs, all of this information is available on the homepage. A link to social media accounts and videos are available making it highly informative for new and current fans. A large header picture, so that could be a bit off-putting.

 

Liber Electro

Liber Electro is an indie electronic three-piece formed in the Ukraine, Odessa to be precise. Founded in 2013, they released an EP titled 'Liber Electro I' - an album that showed how the band uses powerful electronics to present a unique sound without being too overwhelming. Liber Electro are influenced by the sounds of Steve Vai, Led Zeppelin and Jamariquai.

Liber Electro is:

Maksin Gorovenko on keyboards.
Vasilieva Liudmila on lead vocals.
Vladimir Pavleshchiuk on guitar.

https://www.facebook.com/liberelectro/ - the social media account has a personalised touch with a lot of photographs from Instagram making it useful for people interested in following the band. The band profile widget provides access to press reviews, music samples and gig details keeping people updated for performances. Little information regarding biography, but the contact information is adequate.

https://www.reverbnation.com/liberelectro - this is a Reverbnation band profile page, so it has information regarding music, videos and shows. It also has community reviews with access to other social media accounts which is great for new and existing fans. Contact details are not available, and this should be considered.

New Gems Rising

Joel Cross

 

Joel Cross is a Grammy- Nominated soul singer from Texas, whom achieved global stardom after his rendition of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off “received over a million views on You Tube. Cross soon attracted the interest of Capitol Records, America’s Got Talent and Grammy- Award winner Indi Arie, whom he collaborated with on her award winning 2017 album “Songsversation: Medicine. Cross is currently recording the follow up entitled Worthy . Cross’ voice is strong, enriched in heart and raw emotion that will be difficult not to appreciate with elements of gospel incorporated into the sound. India Arie describes Cross’s voice as “beautiful baritone coming from a beautiful heart”.

http://www.joelcross.com/ 

This is another well-presented site with striking images of Cross that conveys the message of a talented singer with some links to music, videos, lyrics and a compelling biography.

https://www.facebook.com/joelcross.music

This is another compelling account featuring updates on cross’s performances, Magazine appearances, photos of friends and fans, plus videos of covers too. This is an all-round informative account that appeals to all fans.

InCrest

 

It was whilst in Boarding School, Danish Grunge rockers’ InCrest were formed by Male Slywest, Jonas Tange and former Bassist Jonas Berthelsen in 2003.

The band initially formed through the inspiration of nineties' acts like Soundgarden and Nirvana with the intentions of emulating them.

In 2007, Berthelsen was replaced by Ande Hagedorn- Olson, which soon saw the band change musical direction into a more progressive sound, incorporating bands such as Tool and Porcupine Tree.. They play roaring melodies and frantic guitar- orientated rock with thought-provoking lyrics. They have released two studio albums thus far; The 2014 Rubicon Atlas & this year’s latest release The Ladder, The Climb and The Fall.

http://increst.dk/

This is an accessible site with a strong colour coordination that is easy to maneuver. There are latest news updates from the band’s social accounts, music videos, photos and an informative biography. I feel this an efficient site for new fans. 

https://www.facebook.com/increstband/

This is another organized account with regular updates on the band’s promo, plus photos of the band relaxing, as well as videos of them on tour. This is certainly enough to pique the interest.

Billy Thompson

 

Billy Thompson is a wily veteran, whose songwriting, slide guitar technique and performances have won him new fans across USA. His music has been described as “Hendrix meets Little Feat”. Thompson has performed with fellow veterans such as Albert King and Art Neville, along with opening up for Robert Cray and Sonny Landreth.

His styles incorporate a large pool of genres like funk, blues, rock and soul.

Billy Thompson recently released his 8th studio album BT”.

https://billythompsonmusic.com/

As with all the pages I have reviewed thus far, this is another well maintained site I enjoyed perusing. I can tell Thompson is a well-respected musician by the way it has been presented. I liked how it wasn’t flash and bright, which made it easy to read. There are some reviews under the news section for all of us music writers to look through (smiley face), alongside tour dates, photos of Thompson with the legendary itinerary he has befriended. There are also recordings and an endorsement link, which can be of interest to any musician out there.

https://www.facebook.com/Billy-Thompson-433934915716/ 

This site doesn’t have much information in comparison to the homepage. The posts are more geared towards promoting gigs, rather than informing new fans. The videos are a nice touch with some performances with renowned musicians, and the photos show Thompson’s fun side .

Greg Larkin

 

Greg Larkin is a something of an unusual prodigy. The self- taught guitarist plays largely acoustic instrumental through a fingerpicking/tapping style, which creates a feeling there are more than one guitar playing at once. He has been touring for 6 years, supporting stars like Nick Harper, Arthur Brown & Wallis Bird. Larkin incorporates different genres like Jazz, Blues, Latin fusion etc. Larkin recently began work with numerous figures in the world of Electronica, Jazz, Trip- Hop and Hip Hop.

Larkin recently featured on the DRS track “Your Name” with Hip Hop artist Skittles.

https://www.theinimitablegreg.com/

My first thoughts on visiting where how it is self- managed. There is little to suggest this may be a musician’s webpage, except for a gig update and a background picture of a guitar. I felt this changed when I clicked on the about section. Larkin writes a warm and personal introduction of his abilities alongside a collection of music videos and performances. I felt this was a positive for new fans. There are no photos, However, the links to Larkin’s Three albums give fans plenty to sink their teeth into.

https://www.facebook.com/greglarkinmusic/

This is another good social media page that offers more than the webpage. There are some more videos of Larkin on stage, which feels very intimate. There are regular updates on upcoming gigs and news on appearances Also, there are some great links to music too. I felt this site appealed more to the listener.

Katie Rose

 

Katie Rose is a Multi- Instrumentalist/ Singer/ Songwriter from Taledo, Washington. She combines Blues, Pop, rock, Soul, Latin and Reggae to create powerful choruses and easy listening beats that will leave you feeling relaxed. Rose began singing at a young age; her first performance was aged 9 at a Local Eagles show. Rose has gone on to perform with her own band, The Fun addicts, and currently attends Berklee College of Music.

http://www.katierosemusic8.com/

I felt this was a professionally run site that appeals to visitors alike. There is a large background photo of Rose with a guitar, which instantly tells me she is a musician. The interface is easy to maneuver; plus, there is easy access to music, videos of Rose performing, as well as some lovely photos of rose out and about.

https://www.facebook.com/katierosemusic8/

This is a nicely organized account that is targeted towards fans. There are some nice photos’ that mix performance and personal pics, which I felt involves fans There are some fun videos that appear to be recorded on home video too. The only negative point is there is little updates, but rather repeated promotion of the singer’s reverb nation page.

Her raspy, pure, emotional vocals along with unique and spunky presence on stage will wake you up if you're asleep and surely will grab your attention right away. The largest part of her music is about struggles that she was going through in her life, especially during her teenage years. Her songs are for those who need encouragement or a positive vibe throughout their day. Though mistreated by others in the past, ZØYA now imbues her music with the kind of soul somebody only gets by aligning an inner fire with a greater power.

A very well structured website boys and gilrs full of informations and profecional photographs of ZØYA. On stage or not. Very cool feature the spot where news and events are gathered on the center of the home page. Very rich social media presence also. Highlight of the website ZØYA's tour dates schedule.

P.S The old school background photo kicks ….

Of Sea and Stone

 

Of Sea and Stone is an emerging Americana duo known for their polished vocal harmonies and intimate songwriting. Their sound ranges from joyful to solemn, hopeful to desperate, with raw, honest lyrics carried by their haunting melodies. The duo consists of Luke Dierker and Morgan Dierker, who met in January 2014 through the popular dating app Tinder. The two quickly discovered their natural vocal chemistry and began writing together in Morgan’s hometown of Columbia, MO. The following week, the two performed their first show at Gunter Hans, a small German café in Columbia. After a few years of regularly performing in Columbia, the two got married and moved to Austin, TX.

The Americana duo introduce it self with few HD photos and connects with the music community right aways with their social media options that you can find on the top of the website.

Music, media and tour options are in the front line for the visitors. An on line shop is open too with a special item, handy and needed for the lovers of cold refreshments or beer (beer for me boys and girls).

 

 

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 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.

There is only one word to describe a band with a girl on the drum set. F@@ing Gorgeous (two words but worth it).

The band as it seems cares more about the right promotion of their music. A very cool feauture is on the home page the new album promotion with a player to listen and buy their songs. An on line shop is active where you can buy T-shirts or the new album.

Social media are available too on every page on the right.

Something that the band must add on the website is the band's BIO.

Highlight of the band it is the very clever name. In fact it is more a statement of the band that they (We) Don’t Have A Name!

Jimmy Lee Morris is an English Singer / Songwriter, who claims to be “happy writing songs to one, or to an audience. “ His latest EP Last of the Tall Ships was released recently. This seven track album was recorded with modern tech to imitate the analogue sound of music he first recorded with his previous band A La Tiene in 1983. Morris has been performing around Europe for 30 years and this package is a collection of well-crafted pop songs wrapped in ambience, blues, folk complete with strong imagery and telling poetry. I found this was worth a few listens to truly encapsulate Morris’ gift for atmospheric music that is as beautiful as a midsummer’s night. The striking thing about Morris’ music is how warm and inviting his vocals are. I will be exploring this EP a little further with a look at each track.

Opener Buying Time is an acoustic track that wouldn’t be out of place at a barbecue. The opening bright chords of keyboards supplement the soft vocals and driving rhythm are suitable with a coffee. The feelgood vibes will keep you hooked throughout the remainder of this EP.

Bigger Sky  is a lovely up-tempo electric blues track. The nice tempi and speed of bass, drums and electric guitar combine to produce a rich texture of funky beats that supplements Morris’ soft vocals. I feel this type of style is more suitable to his voice and allows the music is an added dimension to his sound. The song finishes with a beautiful outro of keyboard . It gives the feeling like the listener is drifting through the sky with every strum.

Freestyle is a track oozing with swagger and empathy about moving on from a bad relationship. The swinging backbeats skip along with glee to Morris’ cool vocals and pounding drumbeats that feel like a man relieved. The recurring riff sounds like The Rolling Stone’s Jumpin’ Jack Flash with a twist.

Something About You is a timeless love song that whistles along with the wheezing sound of keyboards that the crisp bass that gives this song its strengths.

Last of the Tall Ships is an indie track replete with expansive synth tunes and strong melodic lines that is nice for that drive home

Glad You Have Gone is easily my favourite track on the EP. This is R ‘N’ B with a modern edge. The succulent bass and tribal percussive beats create a high tempo of funk .

The Last Ship is an instrumental remix of Last of The tall Ships, a basic structure of synthetic beats that rightly wraps up this outing for James Morris.

Morris creates a mixture of wonderful atmospheric tunes and thought provoking lyrics that incorporate several genres that are evenly matched album that is never the same throughout.

Jimmy Lee Morris Last of the Tall Ships is now available on Bandcamp.

If you’d like more information please check out his website http://www.jimmyleemorris.com/

Vajra

 

During a self-imposed exile in India, Annamaria Pinna - child of a school teacher and former monk - was encouraged to learn about her surroundings and question her reality. In 2011, Pinna formed Vajra with Pat Reilly on guitars, Erek Smith on bass, and Shu Inaba on drums. Described as a 'tapestry of dark and hypnotic, foreboding and mysterious lullabies', Vajra helps listeners experience her music on a high plane. Having played various festivals (including SXSW and Loudwire Music Festival), Varja has also received several awards from Rolling Stone, Loudwire Magazine, and Sirius XM Radio to name but a few.

Varja is:

Anna Maria Pinna on keys, flute, waterphone and lead vocals.
Pat Reilly on guitar.
Erek Smith on bass.
Shu Inaba on drums and percussion.

Varja releases singles on their Patreon page regularly. The latest was released on October 31st as a Halloween celebratory demo.

https://www.facebook.com/vajratemple/ - Varja's Facebook profile is a very engaging one with regular posts providing more than promotional content. The account is evident of her unique personality, and all of the videos and pictures allow visitors insight into Varja's music life. An attractive profile picture, with an EPK widget where visitors can listen to a playlist, view music videos and peruse tour dates. My one criticism is there aren't links to other social media accounts, but there is a link to her official website which is helpful.

http://www.thevajratemple.com/ - an attractive website with a landing page showing all necessary information. If you scroll down, you will see their featured single music video, along with upcoming events and press information. If you wish to delve further into the 'Varja Temple', there are links to socials and EPK profiles. No complaints, just that the links are a little difficult to notice.

https://www.instagram.com/vajratemple/ - as I've mentioned before, I'm not expert when it comes to Instagram; however, I have a fair understanding of what makes a good profile. This is a good profile. A decent balance between professional and personal images, along with some videos for variety. A short bio in the personal information section with a link to the official website makes it easy to find more information.

Lucentia

 

Lucentia is an electronica band hailing from Fort Wayne, Indianapolis. Quite new on the scene, Lucentia released their debut single, 'The Machine', in September of this year.

Lucentia is:

Chris Nunley
Cassandra Nunley

https://www.facebook.com/lucentiamusic/ - Lucentia's Facebook was only opened in January, which may contribute to its poor maintenance. Only a few posts are available promoting their releases. While there are links to different social media accounts, and a contact email, no background information is available for the band. I would recommend updating this to give visitors some insight into the artist.

https://lucentia.bandcamp.com/ - the official website is Lucentia's bandcamp site. As with the social media account, no information is available on the site, only the basic details. The band, obviously, wants to promote their releases more than share details of the band.

Thread The Lariat

 

All the way from San Diego, California, we have Thread The Lariat. A five-piece rock 'n' roll band, this group has been described as a 'refreshing take on modern progressive rock'. Playing venues throughout Southern California, Thread The Lariat has developed a unique and impressive sound drawing their listeners to impressive live shows.

Thread The Lariat is:

Collin Davis on lead vocals.
Douglas Bell on guitar and backing vocals.
Alexander Brennan on guitar.
Aaron Torske on bass.
Brian McGee on drums.

Thread The Lariat are releasing their latest single in November 2018. Their music video for 'Break The Fall' was released in October.

https://www.facebook.com/threadthelariat/ - this Facebook account is quite well-maintained with regular posts promoting shows and single releases, along with images hinting at new music (keep fans interested!). An array of photographs are available ranging from gig posters to live pictures which is engaging for visitors. Only a few videos are available, but what is available is enjoyable. I would recommend placing more background information in the 'about' section, along with links to other social media accounts.

https://www.instagram.com/threadthelariat/ - Thread The Lariat's Instagram is a well-maintained and highly engaging one. Not only are there promotional pictures, but there are also some personal images giving it a good balance for fans to view. A link to their YouTube account in the information section is also very useful.

http://threadthelariat.com/ - the official website is an easy to navigate one with music played when you reach the landing page. It's well laid-out with an easy-to-find menu. Links to social media accounts are available, and this is a footer widget so it's found on all pages. A good website, although a bit dark.

Ellanoure

 

Ellanoure is a five-piece band hailing from Biloxi, South Mississippi. Made up of two sets of brothers, Ellanoure combines post-rock instrumentals with indie rhythms resulting in a unique sound for their listeners. The group released their debut album, Things More Purely, in 2018.

Ellanoure is:

Jared Kozlowski on vocals and guitar.
Heath Riddle on guitar.
Brian Kozlowski on keys.
Shawn Riddle on bass.
Shawn Kozlowski on drums.

https://www.facebook.com/ellanoure/ - Ellanoure's Facebook page is a relatively well-maintained one, but the information is lacking. While they have contact details and links to their merchandise store, it would be helpful to include an official website (if they have one). Moreover, the Instagram link is broken. A band profile is available offering fans access to a playlist, videos and gig dates. I also enjoy the different images available ranging from live shows to posters. My only concern is the broken link and a need for more information - then again, that's just me.

Scott Thiessen

 

Scott Thiessen is a Canadian singer-songwriter swooning his audience with soulful pop music - emphasis on the soul part. He graduated from Seneca College's Songwriting programme in 2017, and made it through the Independent Music Production programme in 2018. So, he's not only handsome and talented, but he's pretty smart as well! His influences are Sam Smith, Adele and Adam Levine.

Scott Thiessen released his debut single 'Lips Don't Move' in October 2018. He is currently working on a debut album.

https://www.facebook.com/ScottThiessenMusic/ - Scott's Facebook account is very well-maintained with a post every week, if not every day. The posts are mainly promotional, but he uses informal language to engage with his fans. There is a plethora of live photos and some amusing cover videos, so it's an enjoyable audio-visual experience. My one complaint is the lack of background information. He has no links to other social media accounts and no contact information.

https://www.instagram.com/scott_thiessen/ - Scott's Instagram is also well-maintained with mostly promotional images, but there are some personal photos here and there. It keeps fans updated on what is happening in his life, and I suppose that is the purpose of Instagram. A suitable amount of information available on the page including links to his official website and a contact email.

https://www.scottthiessen.ca/ - a very neat and concise website that is easy to navigate. The landing page contains a basic biography with links to social media accounts, as well as a gallery and easily accessible menu. I enjoy the colours and simple background image promoting his single - it's not overpowering using neutral tones. A more detailed background might be beneficial for press purposes.

Fans Reached: 1,414,946
 
 

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.



 

GENTE DEL SUR

Mediterranean Trip-Hop, combining rhythms from the Latin Funk Jazz Sou R & B & Reggae with flamenco melodies.

Including the first single "La Gente Del Sur" (Dub Mix) in the American album "Pause & Play" published on June 10, 2016.

The Noble Impoverished

The Noble Impoverished is a wild fire. A sound influenced by bands like The Killers, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, and many others

The Noble Impoverished is the creation of two brothers passion for playing music. At the age of 15 and 17 they picked up their fathers old classical guitar and lost control to Rock & Roll. After a few years of playing in Morgantown West Virginia they moved to Connecticut to showcase this raw sound to a larger stage. The bands deep roots in rock n roll drives its intense live performances, their strong melodies colliding with a savage energy that makes their show something not easily forgotten.

NIALAND

A sound so melodic, so soulful, so eclectic and full of passion and purpose…a style so powerful it reaches audiences of all kinds. A style like that is rare, and yet that style is synonymous with the sound of Nialand. Nialand, or Nia which she is most known as, is a style all on her own. Self-described as weird, her gift is creative, full of truth, mixed with some edge and delivered in a plethora of harmonies and smooth tones that is incomparable and sets her apart from many artists today. Influenced by Jazz, Classic Hip Hop, and Soul Music, Nialand puts her heart, soul, experience and truth in her music presenting an undeniably powerful musical experience.

Vajra

Vajra was formed by composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist, Annamaria Pinna during her self-imposed exile in India. The child of a former monk and school teacher, Annamaria was encouraged to learn about the world around her and to question her assumptions. She believes there is divinity in creativity. Annamaria has a neurological condition called synesthesia, where she attaches color and shapes to sound.

 

The Humidors

“Everything The Humidors play is given a heavy contemporary spin that splinters dance floors and leaves audiences in a sweaty daze.

Jennifer Perryman

Bio...hmmm.  What shall I say?  Music's great!  I really like it...alot.  In fact, I enjoy it so much, that I've spent my life emersed in it.  I've made a modest career out of it, playing and singing in every kind of bar, nightclub, restaurant, and hotel, doing every kind of party or event where music is on the agenda for years.  I'm also in the studio quite a bit, doing everything from original projects, my personal favorite, to corporate backup tracks, radio spots, and jingles. 
I play and sing different styles...everything from jazz, pop, and R&B to, well, I guess I should say country since I am from Texas. I like all types of music from all eras, starting with great composers like Chopin, Scriabin, and Debussy.

Sly Fox and the Hustlers

The band is made up of an all star cast including the powerful lead vocals and blues-soaked guitar of Sly Fox, the throbbing funky bass playing and smooth backing vocals of former Epic recording artist Dylan Storm, the swirling keys of Drew Costa and rounding out the group is the solid in the pocket drumming and showmanship of Sean Ireland. The live show has been described as "Heavy Voodoo Blues over Swampy Funky Grooves" and “an exciting show not to be missed - guaranteed to get you on your feet!"

The Rift

We are a hard rock band based out of Los Angeles with an edgy driving twist on rock music. Traditionally, a rift is an open space. It’s a place of possibility and promise. Los Angeles hard rock trio THE RIFT lives up to its moniker.

Bassist JOHN ANAGNOS says, “The name is the best way to describe the band, what we do, and the experience we portray live. The songs are meant to be an opening, and there’s a lot you can find within them.”

RAZTERIA


A one of a kind breaking of all rules. Razteria won grand prize in the JLSC 2016 for the song "Once Again" co-written with rapper Rahman Jamaal, from her 5th album "Aventurera" (2016).

Under The Lake

"Effervescent, vivacious and all-together engaging" is how smoothjazz.com describes Under The Lake's music, an original sound that Don Dilorio of the North Jersey Herald and News says "doesn't sit easy in any category, thanks to its heavy doses of funkified bass and occasional soul references." It's an sound that Under The Lake refers to as "jazz, groove and attitude." Featuring Nat Caranto on alto sax and John Moak on trombone, the two horn line-up and UTL's original compositions are keeping the soul jazz sound made famous by The Crusaders alive.
