IF BIRDS COULD FLY

if birds could fly

Virginia-based Americana…

If Birds Could Fly is a band for people that like real country music. They are not a product of the over produced contemporary country scene. Instead, they represent the kind of soul-driven authentic country music that drives a genre. The lead vocals, provided by Brittany Carter, are in a class all their own. Their recent album, Ghosts, presents a mixture of classic country sounds and top-of-the-class female lead vocals. Fans of classic country greats like Loretta Lynn or Martina McBride will enjoy this album immensely.”

Los Angeles based singer-songwriter and recording artist Chris Laterzo has managed to keep the muse alive with the release of his fifth and latest album West Coast Sound. Blending varying degrees of folk, rock, and alt-country, Laterzo is an artist who continues to create a unique style of song best described as American cowboy-rock. The spirit of the open road, the imagery of boundless landscapes and weathered travelers, the loping rhythms- as with Laterzo’s previous work, it’s all there in West Coast Sound. Co-produced by Jeff LeGore and Chris Laterzo, West Coast Sound is a culmination of a seasoned artist dedicated to the craft of songwriting.

INTUITIVE COMPASS

13119100_1307188412631121_8342883962311153687_n

Intuitive Compass, purveyors of Original Vaudevillian Folk Music, are a group of nomadic musicians. Originally based in Petaluma CA, they are now based in The Applegate Valley of Southern Oregon, though their home might as well be the open road. Drawing from elements of ragtime, blues, jug band, western swing and the perpetuation of traditional Folk songs in a new light, their genre is a bit illusive. Folk Nouveau if you will….Gus Cannon meets Django Reinhardt “…..you might feel like you’ve been sent back to the early 20th century….” – Boulder Weekly

According to one fellow musician the proper term is “myth punk” call them what you will, please welcome Intuitive Compass.

Revolutionizing the model of the bohemian lifestyle, following their Intuitive Compasses, the group is a family vaudeville show all its own, from a one man act to a preverbal three ring circus, often including Fire, Aerial acrobatics, Contortion and old time burlesque teasers, their show is a bit like time travel.

SAMA DAMS

samadams

Avant-Indie, Experimental, Post-Rock – Sama Dams

Comfort in Doubt, the second full-length from Portland avant-garde three-piece Sama Dams, sings with the keen cry of innocence lost. With the first track “My Ears Are Ringing,” an impossibly catchy and sparse masterpiece of glitch R&B, the listener embarks on a journey through darkness akin to the trip audiences took with Radiohead’s OK, Computer. Striking the fine balance between edgy experimentation and caramel sweet pop, this uncompromising trio drives into the desert with only an unerring musical compass to guide them.

GUITAR LEGEND CARL VERHEYEN AND BAND

LOS ANGLES, CA, March, 2016 – Carl Verheyen, recognized as “One of the World’s Top 10 Guitarists” by Guitar Magazine and “One of the Top 100 Guitarists of All Time” by Classic Rock magazine, today announced that he will bring his three-member Carl Verheyen Band on a June tour of North America, stretching from Chicago and Toronto down to Florida. And in September the CVB will play the western coast of the USA. This comes after the band’s European Festival tours in 2015 and the recording of a new release called “The Grand Design.”

The Carl Verheyen Band’s tour will be a rare chance for audiences to experience a powerful mix of blues, rock, jazz and even country from three world-class musicians in comparatively intimate venues. The Grammy-nominated Verheyen is joined by renowned bassist Dave Marotta, who has also performed with Phil Collins, Neil Diamond, Bruce Hornsby, Gino Vanelli, Manhattan Transfer, Kenny Loggins, and countless others. Marotta has also played bass on dozens of widely known movies and TV shows, ranging from American Idol to CSI. Ace drummer John Mader has performed or recorded with Booker T. Jones, Steve Miller, Pat Benatar, Patti Austin, Albert King, Randy Newman, and Bonnie Raitt. He has also played drums for several Tony Award-winning musicals, including Disney’s The Lion King, Rent, Mamma Mia, and the world premiere of Wicked.

Verheyen’s 40+ years of solo, band, and studio guitar work have progressed to where hardly a day goes by during which anyone with access to music, movies, or television doesn’t hear him. As a first-call studio guitarist, Verheyen is the guitar behind some of the most popular TV shows (Seinfeld, Frazier, Cheers, Happy Days, LA Law, Married with Children, among others) and movies (Star Trek, The Usual Suspects, Ratatouille, The Negotiator, hundreds more) of all time. In addition to his duties as Supertramp’s guitarist, he has performed and recorded with a who’s-who of music giants, ranging from the great BB King, to Joe Bonamassa, Cher, Brad Paisley, Christina Aguilera, The Bee Gees, and hundreds of others.

Verheyen provided one-on-one guitar lessons for John Fogerty and was a featured soloist at the Academy Awards, playing live to a TV audience of more than 67 million. For the past 30 years he’s performed in arenas in the 20,000 seat range with Supertramp. He has released 13 of his own CDs, mixing band music with solo efforts such as his 2015 recording “Alone,” a solo acoustic improvisational release. His newest recording called “The Grand Design” will be released in May of this year.

“This is the first time since in 4 years that my own band will tour the East and West Coast in the same year because of our busy schedules. So the three of are excited to re-connect with audiences there,” said Verheyen. “Dave, John and I love playing more intimate venues and we look forward to bringing our music and energy to both.
