Let me tell you a short story of how I became an artist. My Musical carrier all started one night when my mother took me to see a concert, we were standing in line to get tickets at the Howard Theater in Washington DC. The line was around the building and down the alley. In those days they had a line to buy a ticket and a line to get in the concert.

At 10 years old I didn’t know who James Brown was, from that day forth I would never forget the show that James brown gave that night. That show left an unbelievable Impression, To be there and see James Brown Live in his Prime, well there are no words that can explain the electricity in that theater. After that night I knew who James Brown was, that was my beginning.

You Got That Feelin took seven month to finish, he put a lot off thought in his music, a good song can take months to create and only minutes to hear. but its those few minutes that drive our emotions and make us feel good. This is a special group very talented musically and vocally, With Kirk (Guitar) Thompson outstanding performance that captivates the audience makes this group worth every bit of you’re time to see. A very polished group of musicians, a must see live. ASCAP – The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers welcomes Kirk(Guitar)Thompson as Songwriter and Composer.

The Atmospheric Indie-Folk Owls Of The Swamp

Owls Of The SwampThere’s a sense of searching and mystery nestled in the music of Owls of the Swamp, the atmospheric indie-folk project of Australian singer-songwriter, Pete Uhlenbruch.

His forthcoming album ATLAS was mixed in Reykjavik by Sturla Mio Thorisson (Damien Rice, Markéta Irglová, Owen Pallett) and features guest performances from Markéta Irglová (The Swell Season), Ryan Karazija (Low Roar), Myrra Rós, Svavar Knútur and Phia. Recorded on his mobile studio across Germany, Iceland and the UK, ATLAS heralds a new voice for Owls of The Swamp — sweeping synthesizers, dynamic textures and rhythmic programming alongside his characteristic finger-picking and earthy vocals. The album, released on May 6th, 2014 on Labelship, ignites the never-ending desire to better understand one’s expanding environment. ATLAS offers a friendly and internal comfort for those carrying the weight of the world upon their shoulders, especially for those in search of a place to call home.

ATLAS acts just like the soft voice of reason. “Garden” is an airy, dream-like waltz that lends simple yet elegant guitar phrases. It feels just like a heartbeat, one that shows Uhlenbruch’s ability to create a grandiose and angelic landscape of sound. “Shapeshifter”, a rhythmic lullaby, is a soft and breathy sing-a-long. “The Hypnotist” tells the story of a haunted relationship between a hypnotist and his estranged lover. Cascading piano melodies and ghostly backing vocals from Irglová and the subtle production of Thorisson add a surreal and otherworldly dimension to this memorable song. “Shelter” shows Uhlenbruch’s ability to turn a pop song on its head with his combination of haunting vocals and his prudent reflection: no matter where we set up our home, one day we’ll have to pack up and move on.

His last album Go with River (2011) was received as “one of the sleeper hits of the year” (Timber and Steel)and “new folk music at its best” (Sony Ericsson Music Blogger). There is no doubt that location has played an influential role in the development of Uhlenbruch’s sound. His debut album Smoky Bay (2007) was an ambitious concept album that sought to capture the strange coincidences, connections and charismatic characters that shaped his experience living in Iceland. Uhlenbruch’s deeply embedded Wanderlust has also led him to perform extensively throughout Australia, Germany, Iceland, the UK, Poland and the Czech Republic. His arresting yet personal live performances have led to tours with artists such as Žamboši (CZ), Myrra Rós (IS) and Svavar Knútur (IS) as well as supports for Machine Translations (AU), Old Man River (AU), the Paradise Motel (AU) and Jens Lekman (SE).

New York’s Matthew Foster-Moore

Matthew Foster-MooreNew York’s Matthew Foster-Moore is ecstatic about his upcoming release, The Fine Print.  It’s twelve new tracks of his compelling amalgam of acoustic roots music with dashes of indie-rock, but harder-hitting than Headlines, his 2011 debut.

“Headlines was my first time doing everything.  The first songs I’d written, the first time recording an album, the first time doing tour dates.  That was an important period of discovery, but this time, when we went back into the studio, I felt like ‘hey, I know how to do this’.  We worked as fast as we could because I like that sense of urgency; you catch the ideas while they’re fresh and cut the track before you even really know how the song goes. And we were playing shows at the same time, so we’d come back in the next day and say ‘We gotta re-do that the way we played it last night.'”

Much of the material is darker this time around, fueled by several personal challenges including the sudden loss of a close friend in an auto accident, but the record is decidedly not a downer.  “JT (Jefferson Thomas, producer) kept prodding me, saying I should get as dark as I need to, but ‘let’s keep things moving – if you get all slow and weepy and everything’s a ballad, this thing is gonna just stall ten minutes in.’  So we sort of forced the issue with a driving beat behind the first couple things, and then that just felt natural as we kept going, and the whole record was fleshed out that way. It gets reflective here and there, but it never stops moving.  And there’s plenty of humor in there, too.  Talking In Her Sleep is something I wasn’t too sure was going to make the final cut, but JT said, ‘Man, this is great – trust me on this one’ and we got loose and had fun with it.”

“Not That Young Anymore” is the first single from The Fine Print.  It went to radio across Europe in February, but Foster-Moore was already promoting it in 2013 with two tours, spring and fall, that took him to the UK, Germany, Belgium, Austria, The Netherlands, and Denmark.  “We planned to start in the US, but the reception over there was so positive, we figured we’d switch things around and hit European radio first.  So this winter has been a real scramble behind the scenes to change course, but I’m getting traffic now from all over the world now, and I figure that can’t hurt.”

And now it’s time for America to tune in…

jeremiah currentThough north Texas based acoustic act Jeremiah Current has spent his entire life saturated in music, songwriting and performance, it is the release of his debut album Years Of Yesterday that will mark his true musical introduction to the world.

At 34 years old, Jeremiah Current has already traveled a path that has taken him from the depths of a broken home to the top of his game as a songwriter, a leader, philanthropist, and ultimately a believer. His attitude and work ethic reflect a mantra that says anything is possible if you just put your mind to it. “Too many people go through life asleep. Going day to day without goals, dreams, hopes, or ambitions,” Jeremiah affirms.

“Jeremiah Current is speaking to a generation. His platform is the acoustic/singer-songwriter music format and the message is simple: shake the cage, talk some sense, and see to it that his peers are inspired to make this the most powerful and knowledgeable age the world has ever seen.” states fellow Dallas musician Thomas Long.

The incommensurable realm of opulent styles can be easily recognized in Jeremiah Current’s music. For it is both indie and classic/70’s rock, while at the same time maintains a pop and new modern flavor, with a tasteful infusion of British rock. A truly unique, refreshing, and innovative project, Jeremiah Current does not get caught up in any one particular musical style or genre, but seriously pushes the envelope and defines its own boundaries while presenting substantial crossover ability and something for every listener.

Ransom and the SubsetRanDair Porter (vox,guitar), Rene Giust (bass,vox), and Patrick Coy (drums,vox).

Ransom and the Subset is an American alternative rock band based in Seattle, Washington. With a refreshing pop-rock sound, their music is clearly driven by strong melodies and well-crafted arrangements. Along with infectious hooks and witty, insightful lyricism, Ransom and the Subset delivers a dynamic blend of power pop from decades past along with a strong element of modern rock.

Ransom and the Subset is the brainchild of singer/songwriter/guitarist RanDair Porter. Heavily stocked with self-made demos, Porter sought out and engaged with the talent of producer/multi-instrumentalist Brian E. King (OranJuly and Parks) and Grammy-winning engineer/mixer Ducky Carlisle. The team of three collaborated to create their debut album No Time to Lose

Over the course of a year, Porter flew to Boston to work with King and Carlisle on the album, making a stop in NYC where he worked with Jody Porter (Fountains of Wayne) as well. The famed artist contributed both guitar and bass guitar to the track “Sticking Onto You”. Intermixed with many flights across the country, Porter also sought out collaboration at home in Seattle. Luck and perseverance served in his favor, as he garnered the talent of great Seattle musicians like Jon Memolo, Mike Musburger (formerly of the Posies) on drums and Mike Squires (formerly with Harvey Danger) on bass guitar, providing the driving rhythm section for “Leaving With You”
