Dawn Vally

was formed late 2007 and have made their mark through high energy shows an heavy sound. Since then they have released 2 demos and 1 E.P. They put out their first album “Just Pleaser” in November 2013. Currently Dawn Vally just released their latest E.P “Still Bleeding”

The mainstream is getting heavier. The people are getting angrier. Dawn Vally is a band that reflects this. They don’t believe in being silent because Metal is an “underground” genre. It is not and they aim to make sure everybody knows it with headbanging, body rattling music that incorporates many different musical influences from progressive to southern rock!

LAMEBOT

Masked Bass Music vigilante, LAMEBOT, combines booming 808 sub-bass with 16 bit inspired synth melodies to create his special blend of “Future Bass”.

Started in October 2010 as a genreless musical experiment, LAMEBOT is becoming a bass music staple. With a sound dubbed as “futuristic glitch bass“ by Sweat Records and “future bass” in the Miami New Times, LAMEBOT shows a wide musical range with the genres of his original tunes and remixes blending aspects of trap, dubstep, glitch-hop and more. In a short time, LAMEBOT has gone from small venues to providing support for national headliners such as ill.Gates, Mochipet, MartyParty, Lil Eazy-E & Layzie Bone, and many more.

LAMEBOT has spent the last year headlining a monthly party in Miami called “Strange Bass” which has seen him share the stage with act like Kool Keith, Havoc of Mobb Deep, MartyParty, Mochipet and many more. These songs represent some of his newest work.

Serving as both an ode to the early Internet and to the luscious booty of Ashley Alban, LAMEBOT constructed a bass heavy track for 808 day in “Alban 95”. Utilizing samples from AOL, Ashley, and the TR-808, the track manages to launch you into the future of sound while celebrating its roots.

Blue Champagne is a single off of LAMEBOT’s recent “Vortex” EP and features vocals from PA based artist, Lexa Terrestrial. The track features sprinkles of Jersey Club and Juke over booming bass drums and a message to “Chase Dreams, not boys”.

“Why Can’t I Be with You” is a new song releasing Feb 9th as part of a two song EP through Strange Media and is signaling LAMEBOT’s music taking a bit more of a personal feel. LAMEBOT says the project was written to depict the feeling of isolation caused when you long to be with someone who is emotionally unavailable.

The last song on here is a remix done for fellow label mate Zodiak Iller. “Lyke Dis” got the LAMEBOT treatment and the track will see an official release later this year. Video game style synths made from sounds of the original song and new bass and drum parts combine into a bright, emotional re-imagining of the song.

Sundown_Delay

SUNDOWN DELAY – Awaiting The Death of Rockn’roll

Ten new songs from one of Sweden’s most interested bands
Follow up to 2016’s critically acclaimed “Rubik’s Cube is Fighting Back
Clever and uplifting mixture of heavy metal, psychedelia and pop
Sundown Delay are back with a new album “Awaiting the Death of Rockn’roll”. Ten songs where rock-hard NWOBHM, punk and pub rock as well as clever psychedelia and pop are woven into a sound as individual as unique.

Sundown Delay are based in Alingsås, a dull and sleepy town located about forty-five minutes northeast of Gothenburg, which is otherwise best known as the home of the man who introduced the potato to Sweden, and because the poet Karin Boye went there to commit suicide. Alingsås is also known nationally as the area that can proudly claim the highest number of burnt out medical and care workers on long-term sick leave.

Only a chosen few people in Alingsås know about Sundown Delay. This is despite the fact that their 2015 debut “Catching up with the future” and 2016’s critically acclaimed miniLP “Rubik’s Cube is Fighting Back” were both crystal clear proof that the bands songwriter Svante Widerström has found an exceptionally good sounding musical recipe.

On “Awaiting the Death of Rockn’roll” the band are even more uncomromising than ever.

The opening track “You’re in Love With Yesterday” takes an inexorable grip on the listener and on “Emotional Waste” Sundown Delay sound like high octane pub rock à la Dr. Feelgood mixed with early metal acts in the style of Saxon and Diamond Head. The result is murderously hard. On “In the Valley” the tempo drops but the inensity certainly doesn’t. Slide guitars and vocals recorded through a Lesley speaker create an air of psychedelia. “Zeb Macahan” sounds like The Electric Prunes transported to the early eighties metal scene.

The original idea of Sundown Delay was to create a final platform (since his former band dissolved) from where Svante Widerström could throw the 10 songs he writes every year into the great nothingness. A one-man band would not only have non-exist issues with drop out members. It would also mean total creative control. But it would also mean no fun. So when old friend Nanne Westerholm offered his service from behind the drums Svante of course was happy. Together they recorded “Catching Up With The Future” 2015. But as a duo they weren’t able to play live. To be considered as a band they needed at lest a bass-player.

They found the missing piece in Björn Ericsson and recorded the mini LP “Rubik’s Cube Is Fighting Back” which was released in april 2016. The record was critically acclaimed but since drummer Nanne Westerholm left the band in june same year there wasn’t too much action.

The replacement was called Tobias Wiik and after playing a few gigs they started to work on new music. The new full-length album “Awaiting The Death Of Rock’nroll” was released in December 2017.

Hannah Smart

Hannah Smart is a 20-year-old singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based in Middlebury, VT. Hannah Smart combines 90s grunge and 60s progressive and psychedelic rock to create haunting power ballads and angsty rock anthems.

She was classically trained in piano and viola at a young age but started writing songs and playing guitar at the age of 15. However, being left-handed and self-taught, she accidentally learned how to play a right-handed guitar upside down and still plays that way to this day, considering the syncopated style her playing produces a trademark of her sound. Her first full-length album, “The Reason Why I Don’t Believe in Love,” was released on CD Baby on December 23, 2017. Her style is alternative with a hint of folk and psychedelia. Her biggest influences are the Beatles, Pink Floyd, the Decemberists, Radiohead, Amy Winehouse, and Bob Dylan.

ABOUT THE BAND:

Forming in Saratoga Springs NY in summer 2017, Boo Fookin’ Radley’s founding members Alex Savin and Scott Terwilliger met at a supermarket of all places. Recording their first demo entitled “Proprioception”, they quickly set their focus on creating a set list for a full length album. Soon after, they decided to begin recording demos as they wrote. Once they had a solid set down, they booked recording time at Bunker Recordings with producer Mike Dwyer, better known for his work with The Lumineers, Bob Weir of The Grateful Dead, and The National. Recorded over a six day period, “Final Beginnings” is a testament to where the band is at with their sound right now.

With the release of their full length “Final Beginnings” LP, Boo Fookin’ Radley takes on some classic genres, and gives them a fresh, youthful spin all their own. Lush with addicting progressions, an edgy but soulful vocal style, and persistent pop undertones, the record boasts the aesthetic of pop rock anthems. Although songs are diverse from one another, there is a glue that holds them all together — much like a concept album would.

The first single, “Frostbite”, immediately grabs you with its infectious pop sensibilities, followed by a classic groove, and plenty of musical hooks. The song seems to build and breathe as it plays on to cross genres with ease.

“The song is essentially about conflict of self between desire and letting go. The word ‘frostbite’ in the song acts as a contrast in temperature to the line preceding it, which is ‘have him set your heart alight’. I think that this difference illustrates a difference in feelings as well, which is what I aimed to convey. ‘Frostbite’ is an introduction to the pop sound that courses through the rest of the album, and is a nod to its instrumental diversity,” explains the band of their single.

Although the single speaks volumes for the album, to get a real understanding of where Boo Fookin’ Radley is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.

“It opened the door to more experimentation. We realized that each song doesn’t have to fit within the parameters of one genre. We were able to infuse rap, alternative rock, and pop to create a song that is familiar but also novel,” says the band of the songwriting for the album.

Animal_Sun

ABOUT ANIMAL SUN:

Formed in 2015 and lead by two brothers; vocalist and Principle Songwriter Steven Blake Alton and Drummer/Vocalist William Alton, Animal Sun has managed to grow a following throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia in those two short years. Deciding to name the project Animal Sun was designed in dedication to the Alton’s late childhood friend and musical compadre James Sun, who’s life was tragically cut short in 2011. Drawing strength from devastation, Animal Sun gathered purpose while meeting Lead Guitarist Jonathan Harris, Bassist Cazzie Olko, and Keyboardist/Guitarist Neil Ackroyd, to produce the spiritual alchemy that is embodied in their music. It wasn’t long before the band gained steam as they performed packed parties and house shows and colleges. By 2016, the band had found their identity and wen’t on to begin recording their first studio EP with Virginia Beach legend and resident Rob Ulsh. The Engineer/Producer has been responsible for works from major label recording artists; Pharrell Williams, Pusha T, Justin Timberlake, and Missy Elliot. The self titled “Animal Sun” EP was released in November and is a testament to where they are at with their sound right now.

With the release of their self titled EP, Animal Sun takes on a some classic genres, and gives them a fresh, youthful spin all their own. Lush with addicting progressions, an around edgy but soulful vocal style, and persistent pop undertones, the record boasts the aesthetic of pop rock anthems. Although songs are diverse from one another, there is a glue holds them all together much like a concept album would.

The first single, “Just for The Night”, immediately grabs you with it’s infectious pop sensibilities, followed by intimate and passionate vocals, guitar hooks, and an almost punk rock attitude. The song seems to build and breathe as it plays on.

“I wanted something that not only captured, but almost created a satire out of what many young people experience during a night out. It’s theme is about coming of age, and loving without anything in a return.”, explains songwriter Steven Blake of the band’s single.

Although the single speaks volumes for the EP, to get a real understanding of where Animal Sun is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.

“The themes of the EP revolve heavily around coming of age, love, loss, and an overall maturing period that takes place for many around the age of 18-22. In a lot of ways this EP is a reflection of not only my life, but experiences we as a band have all gone through together; the good, the bad, and the ugly. To put things simply, I feel each one of our songs acts almost as a sponge soaking up the experiences and influences that not only I experience as the primary songwriter, but those surrounding the band as well.”, says Blake of the songwriting for the album.

Ivan has struggled to transcend the limitations of his working class background. As a steel worker in a dying industry he was often appalled by the blatantly unsafe conditions he and his colleagues were expected to work under. The memory of a workmate screaming in pain after having his hand caught in a faulty machine is just one that has contributed to Ivan’s social conscience. The challenges of finding and keeping safe, ongoing employment have given him empathy with those who are displaced or disadvantaged in modern society.

Coping with the day-to-day reality of his working life led Ivan to turn to music as a form of solace. The song Miss You exemplifies this, it was inspired by the death of his father and dedicated to his mother and sister.

His workplace experiences are also reflected in his music. The lyrics can be angry and political and some are quite dark, while the simple melodies and upbeat rhythms belie the nasty, cynical element. However the mood is not all anger and melancholy – Ivan’s marriage to his teenage sweetheart has inspired some happier, more loving songs. Her efforts to find purpose, as well as Ivan’s own, have also been the catalyst for several more philosophical offerings.

Ivan’s musical journey was almost derailed when his bass player and long-time friend attempted to defend a neighbour from a random drug-fuelled attack. He was hospitalised, was in a coma for a month, almost lost sight in one eye and was left partially deaf. This rendered him unable to continue playing bass. Ivan was so traumatised that he turned his back on music altogether – until his wife bought him a new guitar for his birthday almost two years later, prompting him to start writing songs and playing again.

Ivan has always been a versatile musician. He started out playing the flute, then successively played saxophone, drums, and guitar in various bands, gigging extensively. He then moved into writing and recording original material. As a result of being dissatisfied with the music production that he could afford, and inspired by the independent Do-It-Yourself ethos of underground 70s UK bands such as Sex Pistols, Joy Division and The Clash, he learned how to record, mix, master and produce his own music. This gave him much more creative freedom.

His distinctive baritone voice is influenced by the deep vocals of Jim Morrison and Eddie Vedder, while his music shows evidence of the influence of his parents’ record collection – Glenn Miller Band, Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, Duane Eddy, Neil Diamond, The Beatles – as well as Ivan’s own collection: David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, The Church, Soundgarden, Paul Kelly, INXS, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Icehouse. Ivan’s music can be described as retro rock / 90s grunge pop.

Aria Nichols

Dubbed the Adele of Trap music, Aria Nichols is an exciting up-and-coming artist, ready to take the Electronic music world by storm. Raised in New Zealand, but based in Dubai, Aria kick-started her musical career during her final year at medical school. She teamed up with talented producer Don Fuego, forming a solid tandem and fusing deep, authentic songwriting with EDM.

Solid early influences including The Cranberries, Alanis Morissette, The Carpenters, Shakira and more recently Tove Lo, Ellie Goulding and fellow New Zealand star Lorde – Aria has put her signature on Trap, adding Jazzy undertones, unique melodies and soulful, emotive lyrics to the distinct heavyweight drops associated with the genre.

Aria Nichols new single ‘Temptation’ follows hot on the heels of her November 2017 debut single ‘See Where This Goes’. Temptation tells the story of lust at first sight, a highly relatable account of the initial moments of a rather temporary but intense attraction. Aria explores the darker side to the club scene with subtle references to extasy use with lines such as ‘before the buzz wears off’ and also gently touches on issues of consent with ‘before the love is gone’. The relaxed melody and sleepy vocals set the scene, with Don Fuego’s tropical vibe drop perfectly complementing the mood.

Aria has launched an exciting, intense release schedule for her music, with her signature sound and catchy melodies she is sure to keep her name in the spotlight over the coming months!

Chile Colorado

Hard Rock band Chile Colorado’s debut album’s success at Rock Radio was a headline on the Newswire Jumbotron in Times Square, Manhattan, New York, across the street from the Hard Rock Cafe this month. The Chile Colorado band is next scheduled to release the digital single “Getting Restless” to Active Rock and Mainstream Rock Radio from the new self-titled album after having achieved 100 College Radio stations “Adding” the set for airplay.

The ‘Chile Colorado’ album features Ron Wright, songwriter, lead guitar, and vocalist, with Paul Goss on bass & background vocals, and John Ferraro on drums. All three are veteran California musicians, influenced by Rock icons like ZZ Top, Robin Trower, and Jimi Hendrix. One reviewer said the ‘Chile Colorado’ album “combines throwback sound with a modern vibe in the new album” (WRTU.com). Wright worked on the album with engineer and producer, Chris Minto, who engineered albums by Quiet Riot and L.A. Guns, among many gold and platinum releases. Minto’s wife, songwriter Janet Planet, also co-wrote one song. The album is available at iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby.

The band’s founder Ron Wright has always had an affinity for Chile Con Carne, and as a young child he couldn’t pronounce it well, so it often came out sounding like “Chile Colorado.” Over the years, Wright began to use that phrase as a personal slogan for taking life easy and just having fun. When it came time to name his new rock band, ‘Chile Colorado’ seemed like a no-brainer.

‘Chile Colorado’ has been performing in California throughout the summer, including an appearance with Warner Recording Artists ‘The Wild Feathers’ and buzz-band ‘Mary Loves Molly’ at the Folktale Winery in August, selling 500 tickets. The band’s Management Direction has been under consultation with David Bean at BeanBag1.com.More information and links can be found at a href=”http://chilecolorado.com” target=_blank”>www.chilecolorado.com.

“Chile Colorado” is a three-piece power rock band from Monterey, California. They have released a new self-titled album featuring seven high-velocity tracks. Led by singer / song writer / guitarist Ron Wright, and anchored by the bottom-line support of Paul Goss on bass and John Ferraro on drums. Producers: Ron Wright and Chris Minto, Lyricist: Janet Planet, Photographers and Videographers: Serge Richard & Rick Shaffer, Recording and Mixing Engineer: Ron Wright, Engineer: Richard Bryant, Recorded at Studio B, Monterey, CA. Tec Support: Trevor Wright.

Chile Colorado’s is in Power Rotation with 100’s radio stations across the USA and growing strong.

“With more hooks than a church cloak room, the songwriting is top notch in its simplicity and Daysel’s execution, both vocally and on the six-string, is delicious and exemplary.” – Get Ready to Rock

Having just released his second album, ‘Blood of a Wolf’, the follow-up to 2016’s debut offering, ‘Shootin’ The Breeze’, Daysel has proven that his music should be mentioned alongside some of the top names in the world of Rock n Roll.

After more than decade of playing countless live shows, running bands, putting on Kiss and classic rock tribute shows to being a hired gun for chart topping artists and international stars, he kicked off his solo career in 2014 travelling all over the country with an acoustic guitar and a small PA system forging his own path. Working as a true DIY musician he has built his brand from the ground up, playing over 150 shows per year, from a small town bar in the middle of nowhere to some of the biggest biker events in Africa.

Vern`s debut album “Shootin` the Breeze” put his music on the map with being featured in Classic Rock Magazine (UK), local TV shows, music blogs, gaining radio airplay in the US, Europe and South Africa as well as signing a European distribution deal with Lions Pride Music. Just like the first album, Daysel wrote, recorded, produced and played all the instruments (except for bass) on the new album.

With Blood of a Wolf, Daysel has delivered his best work to date, creating a ten song album without any fillers that take you on a journey to what his music is all about.

Anyone who loves the southern rocking blues of bands like Blackberry Smoke, Lynyrd Skynyrd, CCR and Aerosmith, can dig this.

Hank Lykins has been a staple on the Indiana Indpeendent Music Scene for quite some time, being the front man for many cover bands. However, it was not until he teamed up with the songwriting duo of Michael “The Metropolitan Cowboy” Coleman and J. Richard Murray that he got the attention of Nashville. His heartfelt performance of the Coleman and Murray ballad, “Take it To Your Grave” received a standing ovation at the Nashville’s BMI Songwriter’s Festival and later a performance of the same song would be done on the local Nashville television show, Nashville On Stage. Wanting not only to be known as a balladeer, Hank again tapped the songwriting duo of Coleman and Murray. This time, the songwriting team came up with the hard rocking, feel good fight anthem, “Showdown”. The song was originally written for country singer Andy Griggs, as his comeback recording, and was courted by Ronnie Van Zandt for one of his albums, but the duo of Coleman and Murray decided that the song was perfect for Hank Lykins as the song speaks to the underdog in all of us.

Have aliens abducted Stan Rose’s guitar, or is his guitar the abductor? Rose isn’t sure, although the strangeness of his musical tastes suggest the former. The only thing certain, as verified by Google, is that there is only one Alien Guitar Abduction!

Rose’s main instrument is guitar, which he obsessed with while growing up on Long Island in the 1980’s. His original plan was to be the world’s fastest guitar god, so he took lessons from Dream Theatre’s John Pettrucci, prior to Petrucci’s rise to legendary status. But then he also immersed himself in everything guitar music was at the time, by taking master classes with fingerstyle legend Martin Simpson and blues artist Robben Ford, and taking classical guitar lessons while in college. This obsession with guitar music led to a greater appreciation of all genres and type of music. It led to Rose’s basic musical philosophy–that there are not ‘good’ or ‘bad’ styles of music–just good and not-so-good music. And so, Alien Guitar Abduction is a rejection of the industry demand that musical style must be pigeon-holed into one or more pre-existing styles or genres.

Once he discovered electronic music, Rose began composing using synthesizers controlled by electric guitar. Electronic compositions were first composed on guitar and then arranged on the computer. This is the basic musical vision of Alien Guitar Abduction–a synthesis of roots music with the current technology of music production. His latest release, “Dead Light” is the byproduct of this vision; an eclectic mix of psychedelic guitar rock and synth-pop. Dead Light also reflects Rose’s idea that images go hand-in-hand with music; every song on the album is also a self-produced music video. The visual message is an equal partner to the audio. The images are meant to pull the listener into one unified mind-altering experience. As a music reviewer from “Yeah we know it sucks” put it: “Alien Guitar Abduction will even abduct the minds of the most conservative musical cynic…”

Sheep’s Power, created by Bruno Sylvestre, is a virtual band. Bruno is a guitarist since since his teens. Working in a home studio following some money he received after having been in a motorcycle accident. He was left paralyzed in the right arm. In his debut he worked with a Fostex R8 and Emagic, the predecessor of Logic Pro.

Now Future, released in 2017 is the second album of the virtual band Sheep’s Power. 10 songs with amazing singers, drummers and saxophonist. Bruno Sylvestre is the main musician. He plays guitars, bass, keyboards. He’s as well the songwriter. This album is pop / rock prog. Influenced by Pink Floyd, Mike Oldfield, Supertramp, Allan Holdsworth.

“This album is about transition. It describes the era of change we might all live in as individual, as community or as humanity. Everything can happen in a bad or a good way. Transition is a change or passage from one state or stage to another. The past is like a Rainbow Trout which flees away. The future is like a breeze, sometimes a storm, in your face. The only thing which seems real is the present but it’s just a subjective perspective caught between the past and the future. But however the present is Now and remains the starting point for the Future.”

Marcy Requist is a singer/songwriter/pianist/voice talent from Iowa. She grew up on a farm in Red Oak, Iowa, the only child of Marvin and Barbara Requist. Her parent’s love of music had a very important influence early in her life. She remembers her father singing, records playing on the console cabinet stereo, and her mom’s guitar as her first memorable sounds. Marcy’s grandmothers also played a vital role in her appreciation for music. Her maternal grandmother had sung and played the guitar in a band, and her paternal grandmother was a pianist who saved money for Marcy to buy her first piano at the age of 6. It’s a Wurlitzer, and to this day is the only piano she has ever owned, and where she does most of her writing.

As a child, Marcy became fond of the human voice while being rocked to sleep by the sweet, soothing melodies of her mother’s beautiful voice, and hearing the deep, rich voice of her father singing along with Jim Reeves records. Lucky to be from an extended musical family, Marcy gained a deep appreciation for song phasing and lyric interpretation from the gorgeous, velvety voice of her Aunt Kathy. With her cousins, Marcy spent many hours around the piano, and in front of the record player practicing and planning “shows” that were graciously attended by other members of the family.

Marcy’s love of singing in a group began as a child in the First Baptist Church choir in Red Oak, Iowa. She remembers her Junior Choir Director, Mrs. Ruth Stevens, telling the kids to “sing like you mean it because you know you DO!” In grade school, she was encouraged to sing and play the piano alone in front of her classmates by her chorus teacher Mrs. Marlys Conrad. This was very helpful in learning to combat stage-fright at an early age. And, from the distinguished leadership of her first band director, Mr. Richard Simpson, she learned how to respect the music, and give rehearsing the dedication it deserved for the best results.

In Jr. High, Marcy met the man who would have the greatest influence on her love of music performance when she became a student of Mr. Larry Mannasmith. He guided Marcy through auditions and contests, directed her in musicals, coached her on singing techniques, and spent countless hours with her and her best friends in school around the baby grand piano in his chorus room singing, and sharing stories. During her pageant years, Larry and his wife Rhonda were a constant source of support.

In 1989, Marcy was able to share her love of music as she traveled as “Miss Iowa USA”. She often sang the National Anthem and performed at a variety of community events and occasions.

Marcy has also sung for a host of charities and fundraisers over the years. Some of these include Children’s Hospital Omaha, Child Saving Institute, Make-A- Wish, American Cancer Society, Arthritis Foundation, Joslyn Art Museum, The Salvation Army, American Heart Association, etc.

It is an honor for Marcy whenever she is invited to be a part of a milestone event in a family. It always amazes her how just the right song choice can mean so much. Whether it’s the union of two hearts through marriage, or bidding a sad farewell to someone gone too soon, she finds music to have incredible powers. It’s either the perfect accompaniment for a celebration, or warm embrace of comfort when saying “goodbye”.
