Garth Green

February 17, 2010 in Folk/Acoustic by TMC

Genre: Folk/Acoustic
Website: www.myspace.comgarthgreen

Garth Green CD Cover I was born in Port Chester, New York in 1961.  I grew up in New York’s Hudson Valley Region, and now reside in the great state of Vermont. At the age of nine I studied classical guitar for three years with Vladimir Bobri, (former President of “The Society of Classical Guitar” and personal friend of the master, Andres Segovia). Since then I have focused on improvisation and creating my own instrumental compositions.

As a teenager, I was interested in Pop, Acoustic and East Indian music. I was especially drawn to the music of Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Crosby Stills Nash and Young and The Beatles. My music combines classical, jazz and folk influences to create a melodic mellow sound with wide appeal. I use finger-style and flat-picking techniques on six, twelve and nylon string guitars.

Blood Type Releases Debut Mixtape

February 15, 2010 in News by TMC

Blood Type The talented breakout duo from Miami, Florida, calling themselves Blood Type, has recently released its first mixtape and can after 2 months already boast nearly 100,000 downloads. Their work has a fresh effervescence, as well as a familiar vibe. Blood Type excites with its edgy lyrics, while the undertones of neo-soul and jazz brilliantly finds the listeners’ comfort zone.

MIAliens is the breakout work that is bringing attention to the South Floridians whose initial goal was to show the music world that there was more to Southern Hip-Hop than had made its way to the air waves between the 1990s and the present. The name MIAliens is a reference to the 1996 album ATLiens, released by southern hip hop duo Outkast.RefinedHype.com writes, “Are these guys the next Outkast? No, but no one’s the next Outkast. Instead their something better, the next Blood Type.” Lyrical content had not reigned supreme in the genre till now, but Blood Type seeks to diversify what had been and bring Southern Hip-Hop to a new place. MIAliens comes not to change the genre, but to grow it, to expand it, and to expose new possibilities.
