GRETA VAN FLEET – ANTHEM...

Greta Van Fleet is four young musicians ‐ twin brothers Josh (vocals) and Jake (guitar), both 22, younger brother Sam (bass/keys, 19), and longtime family friend Danny Wagner (drums, 19). All are from the tiny Michigan hamlet of Frankenmuth known for its family‐style chicken dinners and the world's largest Christmas store. All four were raised on their parents' extensive vinyl collections which helped give birth to the music they make today: a high‐energy hybrid of rock'n'roll, blues and soul. 2017, Greta Van Fleet's first year as a professional band, was a wild ride of sold‐out concerts in North America and Europe, glowing press, accolades from a slew of fellow artists from Elton John to Nikki Sixx to Justin Bieber, millions of YouTube video plays and Spotify streams, two #1 singles at Rock Radio and two #1 EPs, and most importantly, the genesis of an extraordinary connection with their fans. Greta Van Fleet's shared message with their music is to spread ...

KAT DANSER – GOIN’...

New release by Black Hen blues artist Kat Danser “…Conjures the deep blues of more southern climes – if not the very Crossroads where the blues began – Danser proves a talent that doesn’t come along often.” Eric Thom – Maverick UK Kat Danser’s music is a steel belted radial easily flexing between a dusty gravel road and a fresh coat of asphalt. True to her Polish-Gypsy heritage, Danser is in perpetual motion and her swampy roots and blues style is a fine-tuned reflection of life lessons from the road. Edmonton's Kat Danser doesn't just play the blues - she studies it, lives it, breathes it and elevates it from sweaty, smoky beer joints to elegant, centre stage in the finest of concert halls. Her sweet vocals, lyrical genius, and instrumental prowess beautifully combine with her sharp wit and commanding stage presence to deliver unfailingly memorable live performances. Her fifth album, Goin' Gone, is a collaboration between Danser and Juno-award winning producer Steve Dawson. This recording celebrates her passion for ...

YOUNG THE GIANT – MIRROR...

Following 2016's critically-acclaimed Home of the Strange, Mirror Master promises to continue ascending into consciousness, though this time with a heavy focus on personal self-awareness. Describing the overall thesis for Mirror Master, lead singer Sameer Gadhia expands, "Look in the mirror. What do you see? A familiar figure; a stranger; a monster? What we forget to realize is that the image that reflects is just an illusion. Like the world, we are made up of fictions of things people tell us. How we should dress, what we should believe in, what type of stock to invest in, how we should vote. What is our free will, if we trudge across tracks already traveled? If there is nothing else we control; nothing else new, we are at least in control of ourselves; can make our paths novel and undefined; shatter categories, stereotypes, and roles. Do what we want to do, think freely ...
