All Faces


[indie folk]

Press Notes:

Born and raised in Paris, Ben and Daphne met in London in 2017 and formed All Faces. The combination of their vocals and unique songwriting ensures to offer honest and heartfelt songs to their listeners. Reminiscent of Bon Iver, Ben Howard and Mumford and Sons, All Faces have stayed true to their folk roots while always aiming at reinventing themselves by including elements of electronica and ambient.

Having performed in venues such as the Troubadour and the Omeara, the pair has worked with promoters including Sofar Sounds and Communion to continuously develop their sound whilst bringing new music to their audience.

Kelley Swindall



Press Notes:

Known for her soaring voice, unique music style, and sassy storytelling through song, Kelley Swindall is back with a new single that takes on matters of the heart with a humorous video and a toe-tapping tune. In “California,” the self-professed NYC-based Southern cantadora goes on a Thelma and Louise-style cross-country journey with a little help from a few colorful personalities along the way.

Shot on location during a breakneck 3-day filming across New Orleans and Austin, the video for “California” features Swindall playing a wild lineup of characters, from the swindling Susannah to the devilish Gamblin’ Man who derails Swindall’s scheme of making it to the West Coast to get her big deal done. The lively video follows the antics of the unconventional cast, while the catchy song beckons listeners out of their seats and onto the dance floor.

The Satellite Station


[indie folk/singer-songwriter]

Press Notes:

Tyson Ray Borsboom

‘Cant Go Home’


Press Notes:

Tyson Ray’s music can be described as country, indie, folk, and even rock but what makes this singer songwriter special? He captures the best aspects of numerous genres and harnesses them into one unique sound. If you’ve had the pleasure to see Tyson perform you’ve seen the raw emotion of Dermot Kennedy, the grit of Brett Emmons (The Glorious Sons), and the story telling charisma of Donovan Woods.


‘kissing ghosties’ 

[indie folk/lo-fi]

Press Notes:

It’s not uncommon for artists to struggle with putting a genre label to their music in this day and age. Now more than ever it seems, artists feel comfortable dipping into various aesthetics and styles, even in a single release. Solo project of Conor Ryan, Woozles, is an exemplary display of what beauty can result from this sort of eclectic approach. More electronic moments can switch from energetic and danceable (“hey! you!”) to dark and atmospheric (“all of it”) at the drop of a pin. Emo tinged pop-rock tracks like “under your skin” and “never love” reveal a louder side to the project; while songs like “the deal” and “pass thru” take a more tried and true approach to indie rock. Throw into the mix a few experimental, instrumental, and sample-ridden tracks: “confession” and the closer “inhale/exhale”. What results is kidz bopz vol. 666 – a charming collection of songs showcasing the vast rage of talent possessed by Woozles. Though the sonics may change from song to song, two things remain consistent throughout the project’s work – impeccable, emotive, and deeply thoughtful songwriting; and Conor Ryan’s notably deep, resonant, and rich vocals. These characteristics serve the project well; they act as a commonality among the wide ranging execution of genres. Ryan’s smooth, relaxation-inducing voice and poetic, introspective songwriting ability will anchor listeners to Woozles, regardless of whatever sonic realm the project finds itself in.



[indie folk/acoustic]

Press Notes:

Intimate, stirring, authentic and profound, Meadows turns his insides out; sometimes gloomy, sometimes hopeful, but always full of life and emotions. Born and raised in the small town of Söderköping, on the east coast of Sweden, the finger style guitarist and songwriter Christoffer Wadensten has traveled the world the last couple of years. Under the alias Meadows, he’s been sharing his introspective, dreamy acoustic music at clubs and festivals and in living rooms and theaters across Scandinavia, Europe, UK, Australia and USA. His performances bring people together, converting strangers into friends and fans who deeply connect with his music.

With a background in classical music, Wadensten appreciates the invisible art of music and how it works from the inside. He views the process of creating music similar to that of building the simplest to most complex structures into which he can step.
