amprosamericanThe American Professionals are a San Francisco power trio whose cleverly crafted songs of hope, love, guilt and fear are matched only by their beefy power chords, hooks and harmonies, For their first single since the January 2014 release of the LP We Make It Our Business, they brought on board Los Angeles remixer and electronic artist Van Scotti (alter-ego of Gregory Reeves/Cordovan) to bring “Sad Parade” a fresh yet retro vibe.

R 7578432 1444424995 2972.jpegThe latest album by Bob Holroyd is a series of cyclical pieces in part inspired by work in therapy, and in part by the creative process itself. Each track is a series of ambient layered textures exploring the relationship between repetition and progression where the music develops over time, slowly moving to a new place, but still retaining its central core.

 

catriona welcome300Catriona Irving is a tiny, blonde singer/songwriter based in London. She knocked about for a couple of years pondering on what to do when she bought a guitar she couldn't afford; declaring it, not to customs, but as an incentive to try harder. And by jove she did. Her debut release was 'Running on Empathy', a limited 7 inch release on the artist-owned and run label she co-founded: Neednowater Records. Since followed by the Stitch EP and Sitting on the Shelf EP.

destaniOnce again singer-songwriter, Destani Wolf offers impeccable vocal prowess as a conduit for spiritual awakening on her forthcoming ‘PEEK AWAY’ EP. Drawing on nuances of Blues explored as part of her musical foundation, this collection of six (6) brand new songs finds the Berkeley raised, LA-based songstress arriving at an evolved take on her signature soul-step.

Take one listen to her emotionally powerful and melodic vocals, through songs laden with orchestral-strings such as on “Nothing but the Best” or “Peek Away”, there’s no mistaking the SOUL in her DNA. Her organic nu soul sound reflects her upbringing in and around the rich diversity of the Bay Area’s multi-cultural society, where her earliest encounter with music was through the influence of both her parents’ vinyl collection including Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Los Panchos, Bob Marley and others. Music brought the voice out of her as a child and continues to propel her creativity as a vocalist, a true natural born talent.
