‘Through the Night’
The four hombres from Feldkirch (Austria) and the surrounding area present their “Americana-Sound“ classically with western guitar, swinging drums, a crying pedal steel and double bass.
They sing about love, death, and long voyages. There are self-written songs with influences of country, folk and blues in the focus of the band.

The Armadillo Paradox
‘Your Eyes Are Like Stars’
The Armadillo Paradox, the creative partnership between bluegrass aficionado Sol Chase and storyteller/former hip-hop artist Jared Huskey, are preparing to release their debut LP, Out of Gas in Oil Country, a ten-track collection of songs that gallivants between country, Americana, folk, bluegrass and alt-rock with soft lyrical styling and experimental acoustic instrumentation. Out of Gas in Oil Country, produced by acclaimed sound engineer Charles Godfrey (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ruston Kelly, The Mountain Goats), is a satirical vignette of a culture blinded by its own purview.
‘Meet You In Our Dreams’
Singer-songwriter, Kris Angelis, crafts a dynamic dream world on her new single, “Meet You in Our Dreams,” out February 5th, 2021. The artist builds quiet reflections and impactful emotions into every track, attracting the attention of critics worldwide with each subsequent release. Her recent EP, “THAT SIREN, HOPE,” debuted at #1 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart, was the highest independent release that week on Billboard’s Top Current Albums Chart and charted on Americana Radio. The single, “I Hope I Never Fall in Love Again,” sees consistent radio play on Sirius XM’s “Velvet” and continues to rise up the charts.
‘The Flood’ (feat. Mason Picks)
Mason grew up going to fiddler’s conventions and music festivals around NC and VA, where he was steeped in the rich Appalachian culture that surrounds the area. Picking and singing from an early age, Mason combines soulful high lonesome singing with virtuosic instrumental prowess. Mason’s lyrics are also considered by many to be the driving force behind his music, and his vocals back up the deep emotion that his lyrics possess. Catch Mason performing solo, or with his flaming hot “new-grass” band, Hot Trail Mix.
At 36, I gave up on a successful oil/gas career and came back to the music. It is my ultimate goal to create music that fills my void, then share it with the world in hopes of fulfilling the hearts of many. Over the next year, I’ll be releasing 3-4 singles, followed by a full album release at the end of 2020.

When asked to summarize his style in three words, Izzy responded “everyday queer trash.” He has tattoos, a pierced ear, a pretty shitty mustache, and bleach blond tips. He cuffs his pants, and wears his t-shirts tucked into his light wash jeans. But he believes he leads a moral life over an aesthetic life. When asked if he would give his life for all of the art in the Met, he said no. When asked if he would give his life for other people, he said yes.
Izzy works primarily in his friend Andy Cass’s studio in Williamsburg, MA, where he recorded the entirety of his debut album Father and his new singles. Izzy plays acoustic guitar and sings on his recordings. He is joined by Garrett Salazar on drums, Andy Cass on bass, and Micah Katz-Zeiger on everything else. Izzy’s producer, Max Shakun (Parsonsfield), lovingly coins Micah as their swiss army knife, “because he plays literally everything else”. Since Father was released in September 2020, Izzy has moved from a folk sound to a blend of pop, indie, and classic rock.
He resides in a valley, in western Massachusetts, in a town called Easthampton. He lives alone, and is not in a relationship. He loves biking and most of his time is focused on work and making drum loops in his bedroom.
‘I Shouldn’t Go Anywhere’
Southern California based Singer/Songwriter Brother T LoveJones has seen it all before in the music scene and is familiar that art often imitates life’s everyday stories. On his newest track, he expresses observations at the local tavern. Effortlessly recalling classic country drinking songs, his performance is so convincing you can almost smell the smoke and whiskey.
