Chuck Prophet in Santa Fe»

Chuck Prophet writes and sings about heartbreak and everyman heroism, drenched in twisted lines of rude Telecaster or beautiful acoustic strumming. Prophet’s first endeavor away from his sleepy hometown of Whittier, California was straight to the absurdity that is San Francisco. He joined the seminal cosmic country rock band Green On Red and spent his…

Hello, Dollface in Concert»

The music of Hello, Dollface unfolds with unexpected flashes of color – a flower blossoming in the desert, the fractured kaleidoscope of your favorite daydream, a voyage into a twilight, streaked with the soothing hues of a summer evening. Their dizzying, ever shifting, hallucinogenic visions drift along like the perfumed vapors arising from a Minotaurs…

Son of Town Hall in Concert»

Imagine if Simon and Garfunkel were lost at sea, salt in their beards, wind at their backs, and whiskey in their bottles. What songs would they sing whilst stomping like melodious madmen on the boards of their boat? Or set yourself adrift for a piece, untether yourself from your daily affairs, bring only fresh water,…

Jeffrey Foucault at the Kitchen Sink»

In Jeffrey’s own words: I take the small roads when I can. I hit the small rooms with a couple old guitars and a 5-watt Skylark amp. Sometimes with a band, and then I stand up. Mostly its just me and my friend Billy Conway, the best drummer I ever heard. Then we both sit…

Justin Johnson»

A true master’s musicianship holds true to influences, yet follows spirit and heart first, setting aside rules and forging new and inspired art. Maybelle Carter did this, as did Django Reinhardt, Hank Williams, and Jimmie Rodgers. But in our modern world, profound musical originality is rare, and fewer still hold strong to tradition, while moving…

An ace guitarist, as well as a distinctive singer, and hit songwriter, his music runs the gamut of diversity. Combining the influences of Blue-Eyed Soul, Delta Blues, Road House…
