Line Up



Young Rising Sons

Music creates feelings. Be it intentional or not, songs often have the potential to bring the listener to the highest high or the lowest low. Most songs, however, leave us somewhere in between. While some bands choose to ignore the way in which their music might impact the mood of their listeners, the four ambitious youngmen who make up Young Rising Sons fully embrace it.

At a time when cynicism and moral outrage are quite common in modern music, Young Rising Sons choose to focus on the brighter side of life. According to lead singer/guitarist Andy Tongren, the Red Bank, New Jersey band’s debut single “High” was created with the intention of writing a “soulful pick-me-up, an honest account of life’s ups and downs, all with a glimmer of hope.” Tongren adds that the recently released “High” is the perfect example of the “feel good disposition” that shapes Young Rising Sons’ view on life and music.

Steve 'N' Seagulls

Originally just a bunch of local yokels from moderately successful bands, this merry mess of country cousins one day decided, just for laughs, to hillbillify (yes, “hillbillify” is henceforth officially a word) and shoot on video the AC/DC staple “Thunderstruck”. Little did they know that the home-brewed video of the song would propel the provincial posse into cyberspace stardom virtually overnight. Attention from media both domestic and foreign ensued, resulting to a slew of performances ranging from festival appearances to being the house band in the christening of your grandma’s cat. 

Cue a few months, a couple of more videos and several newspaper clippings, and Steve ‘n’ Seagulls has become a buzzword known to most in their native Finland. Even record labels – notorious for their oblivion of anything worth noting – had the wool pulled from their eyes. All of a sudden Steve ‘n’ Seagulls find themselves with a recording contract.

Shakey Graves

Shakey Graves became known for his one-man band set up and most of his debut album Roll the Bones is Rose-Garcia playing unaccompanied by other musicians. When he began working on his sophomore album, And the War Came, Rose-Garcia added musicians to his recording set and live set. Three songs from And the War Came are duets with ex-Paper Bird member Esme Patterson. The album was produced, engineered and mixed by Chris Boosahda. Chris also contributes drums, vocals, percussion and music for the song Big Time Nashville Star to the ATWC album (son of 70's and 80's Christian music singer Stephanie Boosahda). Patrick O'Connor, from the LA music scene, plays guitar and bass at various live shows. Rose-Garcia is also occasionally accompanied by another ex-Paper Bird member Macon Terry on double bass and Aaron Thomas Robinson on steel guitar.

Yarn

Since their start in 2007, Yarn’s original Americana sound has developed into music that seekers of the unique see as the soundtrack to their lives. Yarn’s albums were recognized by the AMA’s and R&R radio charts, spending time in the top 5 at their highest point. Yarn has become one of the hardest-working and harder-touring bands for this generation’s digital natives and new music folllowers.

2013 brings this grammy-nominated roots band into the music revolution, inspired by today’s music devotee’s hunger for artists to believe in and follow, they are giving it to the fans everyday in everyway possible. Yarn’s devotion to their fans is realized in online and social sharing of their music, whether it’s daily video posts, premiering fresh songs on local radio, or performing live in small town venues across the country. They are bringing songs to American music lovers, and the music lovers are responding.

Jon Stickley Trio

The Jon Stickley Trio has earned a reputation for painlessly shattering expectations. The originality and sheer energy of this genre-bending ensemble serves as a welcome wake up call for those who experience it. With roots in bluegrass, gypsy jazz, and hip-hop, Jon Stickley, one of the world’s most innovative flatpickers, violinist Lyndsay Pruett (Futureman), and drummer Patrick Armitage (Atmosphere), have fused their collective styles into a repertoire of exciting, innovative original music, along with fresh takes on traditional tunes. While recording their latest album, producer Dave King (The Bad Plus) referred to the band’s imaginative sound as “this whole other thing”. The virtuosic trio’s compositions truly do not fit into any specific genre, but remain totally accessible and danceable to audiences across the board.

Zach Deputy

On his new release Another Day (Eusonia Records, 2011), Zach Deputy demonstrates his extraordinary ability to perform and record in multiple contexts and conveys the sensibilities of a mature singer/songwriter. Another Day offers another look at Zach Deputy and seeks to help him cross over into other audiences. Rich with ballads and mid-tempo songs, the music on this recording is best described as soulful rhythm and blues, with flavors of Al Green, Taj Mahal and Stevie Wonder emerging in the swells, changes and modulations of the music, in the voice and even in the lyrical content. The record will appeal to fans of contemporary artists like Jack Johnson and Amos Lee, but the origins of the style and feel remain classic.
