Alternative soul rocker Joe Marson streams new song, Lost In The Sun

June 28, 2017

Alternative soul rocker Joe Marson has released his new track, Lost In The Sun. The song is off his forthcoming EP  This is Magic, which is set for release on August 18, 2017. Joe comments on the new track, “I wrote the song about my 6 year battle with crippling depression that I experienced in my teens into my mid 20’s. I was held back from going after my dreams of playing music and felt very distanced from my friends and family. I eventually could not take care of myself and was very close to ending my life before finding the right combination of things that literally brought me back from the dead; and made me stronger than I have ever been. I know the analogy of Phoenix rising from the ashes is an oft used one, but that is an accurate description of my experience.”  You can take a listen to the new track by heading over to Adobe & Teardrops. The track truly highlights the emotive vocals of Joe and you can’t help but feel the [Read More]

Garret Pierce honors Chris Cornell with his cover of Sweet Euphoria

June 17, 2017

Garrett Pierce briefly met Chris Cornell in 1999 but he truly did make an impact on him and his songwriting. Garrett shares how he met Chris in Berkeley with Payam of Sholi and how chose to cover Sweet Euphoria in honor of Chris.   “In 1999, fresh out of High School, I made my first attempt at living in Northern California.  It was a transformative year for many reasons, but mainly because I met my friend Payam from the Bay Area band Sholi (Touch & Go Records) who became a long-time musical collaborator.  One of the first nights we ever hung out, we attended a Chris Cornell concert at the Berkeley Community Theater, and although I was a big fan of Soundgarden, I’d never met anyone as inspired by Cornell’s songs as Payam.  The show was fantastic, featuring many great cuts from his recent solo album Euphoria Mourning.After the show, we waited in the drizzle to meet the man behind so many of the seminal songs of our youth.  It was a brief exchange, but [Read More]

Indie folk singer-songwriter Laura Brehm brings emotions to life with upcoming solo EP

June 13, 2017

Indie folk singer-songwriter Laura Brehm is set to release her forthcoming solo EP Breathe on July 28th via Electric Bird Records.  ‘Fans may recognize vocalist Laura Brehm from over 30 collaborations in the electronic dance music world, including popular songs such as”Monody” with TheFatRat and “We Won’t Be Alone” with Feint.’ With her solo EP, Laura brings out a softer side of her music as her EP brings to life emotions through her indie folk music. Laura comments on the EP, “This EP focuses on themes that inspire me the most: passion, dreaming, self awareness, healing the past, taking chances, falling in love, friendship, finding truth, hope, and living in the moment. I kept trying to give this EP to a producer to help me bring it to it’s highest potential, but things out of my control kept happening that led me away from that and I finally realized that the only person who can express this exactly the way I want to is myself.” Check out a teaser for the EP: More details on [Read More]

Backed by Deron Johnson on keyboard, Michael Ward on guitar, and Jimmy Paxton on drums – all stars in their own right – Athena was in a lively mood as she danced, bounced, laughed and crooned through the evening, carrying a very happy standing room only crowd with her. Joining her over the performance were Warner-Chappell blue-eyed soul singer Conner Pledger, Angela Parrish –  known to millions from her song “Another Day of Sun,”  which opened the Oscar-winning film musical La La Land, folk-singer Sarah Melson whose music is familiar to fans of Grey’s Anatomy and other TV series, and singer/songwriter Joy Autumn who recently released the Sunny Lemonade album about her move to LA from Washington State.
