  • The Incredible Vickers Brothers

    When you’ve played in as many bands and performed as many different styles of music as California native Robert Vickers has, there’s bound to be some confusion along the way. Somewhere down the line he became ‘Rob’ to some and ‘Bob’ to others. This helped contribute to a musical split-personality which allowed him to be bassist in the late 1980’s for psych-rock outfit Cerebral Corps then by the 90’s morph into his role as drummer for jangly West Coast... read more

    If you’re ready to hire a music promotion company to secure coverage for your upcoming single, EP, or album release, how do you find a publicist who will give you the best bang for your buck?

  • Cayden Wemple Announces Debut Single “Better”
    Cayden Wemple Announces Debut Single “Better”

    The debut single from Cayden Wemple, “Better”, unites a common thread of emotions wavering between apathy, acceptance, and hope. When growing up in a world where it’s downright terrifying to turn on the news, or even log onto social media, 18-year-old Wemple drives his voice through the dark shadow cast in front of the sun, and refuses to give in to the nightmare’s pull. “Better” is off the upcoming EP, Car Crash From an Aerial View, due... read more

  • VanWyck Releases New Indie Folk Single, “Listen to You Breathe”
    VanWyck Releases New Indie Folk Single, “Listen to You Breathe”

    Amsterdam singer songwriter, VanWyck releases the new single, “Listen to You Breathe” off her upcoming album. Captivating and hauntingly atmospheric, the song delves into the dark excitement of creation: Melodious whispers and gentle keys chase that something that is tantalizingly close and yet always out of reach. Combining the sensual with the mystical, VanWyck circles the mysteries of love, life and creation. The album, An Average Woman, is due out January 19 on Maiden Name Records.

    Unflinchingly introspective and personal songs have no right striking such a universally affecting chord. But don’t tell that to the Good Graces. The Good Graces is an indie-folk collective based in Atlanta, GA formed in 2007 by singer-songwriter Kim Ware, whose plaintive, utterly appealing drawl of a voice grounds each song with raw honesty and homespun warmth. Ware and the band have performed up and down the East Coast, in California, Canada, Texas and many spots in between; toured... read more

    Felsen Releases New Single, “Vultures on Your Bones”

    The new single from indie pop band Felsen, “Vultures on Your Bones” beams a telepathic message through melody and lyrics directly from their late-night West Oakland studio.
    The single is just one piece of the puzzle as Felsen invites listeners to tie together the album’s sounds, images and the words into one purposeful clutter. Through a series of clues and Easter eggs hidden, the lost art of listening to an album as a whole creates an... read more

  • Cayden Wemple

    Cayden Wemple is a singer-songwriter with a worldview that extends far beyond the boundaries of his hometown. Hailing from the relative comfort and quiet of San Luis Obispo, California, his unique brand of millennial folk marries the social commentary of Declan McKenna with the songcraft of Conor Oberst and Gregory Alan Isakov. Armed with his trusty Martin guitar, with an eye constantly on the news, he channels his insecurities directly into his songs.
    This message is there for all to hear on debut EP,... read more

  • Sleeping Rays of JupiterRehearsals continue, different venue this time.

    I’ve got simultaneous Sleep-ins action going on right now, working with Stefan and Josh to record the new record, and rehearsing with Mike Johnson and James Butler to prep for some shows coming up this Summer. We’ll be playing songs by the Sleep-ins, the raydons, Jupiterboy, Jimmy the Wigwam, kingsizemidget, and lonesomerobot.

    I took some time away from playing and it some ways it shows, but in other ways it’s just like picking up from where I left off. Playing live shows is the best practice, though.

  • 2016 04 20_0933First and most important – I’ve added a show at the Albany Market on May 21st.    The market takes place downtown right near City Hall and has been one of my favorites over the years.

    Because we are going to be mobile for awhile, this will likely be my last show at the markets for awhile and – if practice so far is any indication – it is going to be amazing!   I’ve pulled out all of the original backing tracks and will be doing Orbit: A Love Story in its entirety as well as a smattering of songs form all previous records.   Purists may have a problem with playing with tracks and I get it, but after a few times through the setlist, I can’t imagine why I have not done this sooner…  It sounds amazing and I’m genuinely very excited to play the songs as I’ve originally imagined them and, heaven help me, even perform them!

    In that spirit, I’m also going to try to set up one nightclub show sometime over the summer and invite everyone to come in costume for a video shoot.   This will be a full video projection multimedia concert as well and should be a fun evening!   More to come.

    Also in that vain, I will be hitting the road this summer with Laura and we will be slowly working our way across the US.   Since we’re going to be putting on the miles anyway,  I’ve decided to set up some shows along the route to make it interesting and, who knows, maybe even pay for some of the gas…   Also, more to come.
