        Mike Love

        Revolutionary music may seem hard to come by in these days and times. Long gone is the era of artists like Bob Marley, The Clash, Stevie Wonder and Patti Smith getting airplay and bringing their messages to the masses. But that doesn’t mean that the revolution isn’t still brewing in the hearts and minds of many people around the globe.

        Meet Mike Love. One of reggae music’s rising stars. Born and raised in Oahu, Hawaii to a musical family that spans generations, Mike Love brings a multitude of influences to the table, all tied together by the common goal of making the world a better place. Through the grassroots method of releasing his albums independently, on his own Love Not War Records label, and performing 250 plus shows a year, Love has built an ever growing following for his unique and inspiring music. He has toured with many artists in the circles of conscious, roots music, including Trevor Hall, Xavier Rudd, Nahko and many more. Over the past few years he performed to enthusiastic audiences at the California Roots Festival, Wakarusa, Wanderlust and the Montreal Jazz Fest, just to name a few. He has also enjoyed great success and exposure through the web on outlets like YouTube, with one of his videos just recently hitting 5 million views!

        On his award winning debut album, The Change I’m Seeking, Love harkens the legends of roots reggae in both his lyrics and his sound, but never relies on any one genre to hold him down. Coming from a wealth of influences, Love fuses the simple rhythms of classic reggae with the complex changes of the classical and rock music he was first trained on to come up with a style wholly unique to him. On his follow up album, Love Will Find A Way, released September 1st, 2015, Love further refines his sound and message, with grand and striking arrangements and deep heartfelt emotions, he takes you on a journey which many describe as "life changing". He calls for immediate and drastic change in environmental impact on "Step Lightly", affirms his connection with fans on "I Love You, and shows a vulnerable and touching insight into his personal life on "Advaya's Song" and "No Regrets".

        But it’s his message, his passion, the wisdom behind his words that truly resonate with his fans. “It’s always been about the depth,” Mike Love explains, “I’ve never been into music that was shallow. I’m still learning about where I’m going and where I want to be. All the music is a learning tool for me too. I just make myself open to it and the messages come through. It’s just as teaching and healing for me as it is for anyone.”

        His songs take you on a journey, one of healing and inspiration. One designed to help you on your path to knowledge, wisdom and understanding. On “Permanent Holiday” he takes you on a lyrical quest for freedom, both his and yours. He laments the ills of the world but also discusses solutions and ideas to change them. On "Earthlings" he sings about being vegan, about animal cruelty and about holding yourself accountable for your actions. These are songs with messages designed to affect change in a time when it is so desperately necessary.

        With tours already booked in the U.S., Canada, Central America and Australia, 2016 is shaping up to be a big year of even more growth for Love and his musical family!

        Mike Love has shared the stage with artists like Michael Franti, Trevor Hall, Nahko & Medicine For The People, Xavier Rudd, Rebelution, John Butler Trio, Groundation, Steel Pulse, Dave Matthews and Jack Johnson.

        Revolutionary, Conscious, Music.

                Shoebox Money

                Returning from a 9 month hiatus in April of 2017, Shoebox Money found a lineup that really works and discovered their sound with original members Patrick and Ben W. (Bass and lead guitar/harmonica) paired with new members Ben S. and Dylan (vocals/rhythm guitar and drums). Drawing equally from classic rock and blues as well as post garage rock revival and alt punk, these indie rockers produce theory driven music and put on high energy live shows.

                American Slim

                Kansas City based American Slim started in the Spring of 2012.

                The similarities of each member are obvious: -all passionate, and all moved by watching the audience fall in love with the music. Their differences influence the band’s unique sound; bass, lead guitar, acoustical guitar, keyboards, drums, ukulele, banjo, piano, and saxophone blend together with a distinctive mix of killer vocals and smooth harmonies. American Slim’s vibe is eclectic and it’s that quality--the I-can’t-quite-put-my-finger-on-it-but-I-love-it sentiment, that audiences call the band’s signature sound: bits of indie, rock, blues, and funk fused together for a mix that has evolved from performing covers to writing and performing originals. The band performs almost every weekend in the Kansas City area and has been working very hard during the week to write and produce their very first EP of original music that is due for release in the Fall of 2015.

                                Declan McKenna

                                British indie singer/songwriter Declan McKenna first emerged in 2015 with the shimmering, politically charged single "Brazil," which directly addressed the corruption scandal then engulfing soccer's governing body, FIFA. The teenaged Hertfordshire native had only a handful of self-released tracks to his name, having uploaded them to his Bandcamp page. Obsessed with Bowie and with an attitude recalling the Libertines and Jamie T., McKenna blended bright indie pop with textural lo-fi. As "Brazil" gained traction throughout 2015, McKenna's star began to rise, and that summer he took home the Glastonbury Festival's coveted Emerging Talent prize. Hyperbolically dubbed "the voice of a generation," he signed a management contract with industry giant Q-Prime, leading to a bidding war which resulted in his signing to Columbia. His follow-up single, "Paracetamol," arrived in November 2015, proving that he was no one-hit wonder. The EPs Stains and Liar followed in 2016, along with a string of socially conscious singles tackling such weighty topics as police brutality, religion, and terrorism. All six of his previously released singles eventually wound up on his bright, eclectic debut album, What Do You Think About the Car?, produced by Simian Mobile Disco's James Ford and released in summer 2017.

                                                He‟s been known as the co-founder of the three-time Grammy nominated BR549, the honky-tonk
                                                heroes that almost single-handedly lit and carried the blowtorch for the mid-„90s alternative country
                                                explosion. He‟s been hailed as „The Hillbilly Renaissance Man‟ for his subsequent successes as a
                                                songwriter, performer, producer and musical theater director. Now after more than a decade as one of
                                                the most uncompromising and consistent talents in the American roots music movement, Chuck
                                                Mead at last emerges with the most anticipated role of his entire career: Solo Artist.
                                                With Journeyman’s Wager, Chuck Mead throws down the gauntlet with an album that defies all
                                                sonic expectations while re-defining his position as one of the hardest-working artists in the business.
                                                “I respect the term „journeyman‟,” Mead says, “because that‟s I what consider myself. I‟ve been living
                                                by my wits musically for more than 20 years now, going from job to job and doing them all pretty well.
                                                Certainly there‟s a hustle to what I do, but there‟s always been a gambling aspect to it, too. With this
                                                album, it‟s finally all me going all-in. It‟s a record that challenges listeners in a good way. Best of all,
                                                I‟ve challenged myself.”
                                                Produced by Grammy-winner Ray Kennedy, the eleven tracks on Journeyman’s Wager embody not
                                                only the core of country music, but also the pulse of pop, R&B, hillbilly rock, Gospel and beyond. “Why
                                                be confined by barriers or genres?” Chuck asks. “As far as I‟m concerned, it‟s all American Music.
                                                These are the sounds that made up my musical vocabulary. I still believe that American Music is
                                                about real things, good stories and unique songs. And I‟m willing to bet that most everyone else does,
                                                too.”
                                                “It‟s hard to believe that it‟s taken him this long to make a solo record,” says producer/engineer Ray
                                                Kennedy, best known for his work on classic albums by Lucinda Williams and Steve Earle. “What sets
                                                Chuck apart from so many artists is that he‟s a genuine hard-working, blue-collar performer. I hate the
                                                word „old-school‟ but we didn‟t want this album to sound like a lot of modern records where everything
                                                is over-tweaked and perfect. We knew we had to make it intimate and real.” Kennedy recorded the
                                                entire album analog on two-inch tape, in a studio full of both state-of-the art and vintage equipment
                                                that included „60s tube microphones, a Vox Continental organ, and a badass band that featured
                                                Kenny Vaughn (Marty Stuart), Audley Freed (The Black Crowes), Mark Miller (BR549), Mark Horn
                                                (The Derailers), Dave Roe (Johnny Cash), Mike Henderson (The SteelDrivers), Pat Sivers (The
                                                Everly Brothers) and Jen Gunderman (The Jayhawks). “Chuck is the same in the studio as he is on
                                                stage,” Kennedy explains. “He loves working without a net. There are a lot of multiple voices singing
                                                into one microphone and the band playing together in one room. Most of all, it‟s an album that really
                                                represents his worldview song-wise. It has humor, intelligence, sarcasm, a bit of politics and a lot of
                                                spontaneity. Plus he‟s singing his ass off. Chuck doesn‟t have a model; he really is a journeyman in
                                                that songwriting and entertaining is his life.”
                                                For Mead, life and music have always been irrevocably intertwined. “I joined my first band at 12 years
                                                old,” he explains with a laugh. “Ruint me forever.” Throughout his 20s, he led several groups in and
                                                around his hometown of Lawrence, Kansas, including the popular Mid-western cult band The
                                                Homestead Grays. By the early „90s, Chuck found himself as an itinerant musician on Nashville‟s
                                                then-seedy Lower Broadway. It was a place in time where a performer armed with only the vision of a
                                                sonically relentless hillbilly band with nothing to lose could try anything. Within months, Mead cofounded
                                                a quintet that began playing must-see marathon sets in the front window of bar/bootery
                                                Robert‟s Western World. Seven albums, three Grammy nominations and millions of worldwide fans
                                                later, BR549 would become one of the most improbable success stories of the past decade.
                                                “BR549 is on extended hiatus,” Chuck now says. “We were – and remain – a family, and taking a
                                                break from each other will make us miss each other more. We survived the highs, the lows and all the
                                                hype, and we still had fun making music we love. But it was also time for me to do my own thing.”
                                                With the exception of occasional reunions on Prairie Home Companion (at the behest of longtime fan
                                                Garrison Keillor) and benefits for favorite charities, Mead‟s post-BR career soon became known as
                                                much for its continued integrity as for its eclecticism. He founded the touring collective The Hillbilly All-
                                                Stars featuring members of The Mavericks, co-produced acclaimed tribute albums to Johnny Cash
                                                and Waylon Jennings, guest-lectured on „The Sociology of Modern American Culture‟ at Vanderbilt
                                                University, and became a staff writer at one of Nashville‟s top song publishers. In 2007, he was
                                                named Musical Director of Million Dollar Quartet, the new hit stage musical based on the night in 1956
                                                that Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley came together for an impromptu
                                                jam session. “It‟s been incredibly liberating to do all these things I‟ve never done before,” Chuck says.
                                                “But most of all, I wanted to call my own shots and make a record that mattered.”
                                                Ten of the eleven tracks on Journeyman’s Wager are co-written by Mead, who‟d spent the past year
                                                working with such idiosyncratic and award-winning songwriters as Tia Sillers, Bobby Huff, Greg
                                                Crowe, Patrick Davis, Angeleena Presley, Mark Collie and Jon & Sally Tiven. The album roars out of
                                                the gate with the twanging highway stomp of “Out On The Natchez Trail”, and runs head-on into the
                                                sinister mystery of “Gun Metal Grey”. The horn-powered “She Got The Ring (I Got The Finger)” is a
                                                sly nod to Jerry Reed‟s “She Got The Goldmine (I Got The Shaft)”. There‟s classic country-pop
                                                wisdom in “Albuquerque”, gentle insight in “Up On Edge Hill”, and hard-driving good times in “I Wish It
                                                Was Friday”. “A Long Time Ago” is a paean of pedal-steel regret, while “After The Last Witness Is
                                                Gone” is a bold testimonial that‟s equal parts honky-tonk and roadhouse rocker. “In A Song” may be
                                                the album‟s genuine showstopper, a gloriously sanctified testament to the Everlasting Church Of
                                                Music. The disc‟s sole cover is a fiery version – complete with yodeling – of George Harrison‟s “Old
                                                Brown Shoe”, the obscure Beatles b-side from “The Ballad Of John & Yoko”. The album closes with
                                                the assured shuffle-funk of “No Requests”, a song whose chorus is a potent statement of purpose
                                                from an artist who is now truly his own man.
                                                “Even when BR549 were being called a throwback act, we never allowed ourselves to be classified,”
                                                says Chuck. “The key was to always bring something new to everything we did. Today my slate is
                                                cleaner than ever before. This album is all me, doing what comes naturally.” For Chuck Mead, the
                                                time has come for one of Americana‟s most uncommon artists to finally step out, step up and be
                                                heard on his own unique terms. And in a game where sure bets are rarely the real deal, one
                                                singer/songwriter/performer is again unafraid to lay it all on the line. “I mean everything I say on this
                                                album,” Chuck Mead says. “You can tell it with a wink and a smile, but it‟s still the truth. And the truth
                                                is that Journeyman’s Wager is the culmination of everything I‟ve learned. These are my decisions.
                                                This is my music.”

                                                    The Expanders have come to be known for their vintage “rockers” style of reggae, played in the tradition of classic 1970s Jamaican groups like The Ethiopians, Culture, and The Mighty Diamonds. Their music emphasizes three-part vocal harmonies and strong songwriting. In addition to performing their own original material and rare Jamaican scorchers, since 2006 The Expanders have been the chosen backing band for legendary Jamaican singers when they come to California to perform. The group has backed classic artists Alton Ellis, The Maytones, The Ethiopians, The Wailing Souls, and many more. For two years in a row they were featured at the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival in Mendocino County where their performances were praised by The Beat magazine as having recreated “the old classic Kingston rocksteady sound to a T.” They have been frequent guests on SoCal radio shows such as Reggae Central with Chuck Foster (KPFK 90.7 fm) and The Reggae Show with Junor Francis (KXLU 88.9 fm).

                                                        The Copper Children are an indie rock band emerging out of the heart of Denver, Colorado. Their sound is a mix of indie-Americana, intertwined with soul-folk, influenced as much by mountain music as classic rhythm & blues. The band’s expressed musical functions are driven by a contemporary multi-focus genre, in which they challenge conventional thinking and preconceived notions of what soul-folk is, and aims to give an edge to the folk genre with unique instrumentation and songwriting. Through their music, they strive to share their soulful folk tales through heartfelt lyricism combined with raw emotion, all while paying heed to the diversity, peace and sacredness of life, as we know it. Amidst their profound songwriting and melodies, the band has readily established themselves as ‘The Copper Children’ of the Colorado musical forefront.

He began studying violin and composition at the age of eight and went on to study classical violin at the University of Texas where he fell in love with electronic music production. It was in Madden’s pursuit of his gypsy roots that he opened his ears to music from around the world. From experiences learning violin with mysterious masters on his journeys across the globe and his passion for modern design and technology, the current sound of Govinda was born.

                                                                    Govinda has played with Thievery Corporation, Tipper, Bassnectar, Shpongle, Cheb I Sabbah, STS9 and many more and been featured on over 25 compilations such as Buddha Bar II, Asian Travels II, and Nirvana Lounge selling a combined 400,000 copies. Govinda has played at numerous festivals throughout North America including Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle, Lights All Night, Euphoria, Sea of Dreams, Camp Bisco, SXSW and many more. Govinda's music has been on TV including stations like WB, MTV and Bravo as well as many independent films.

                                                                    The Govinda live show immerses the audience with a textured atmosphere of exotic, dubby vibrations interwoven with cosmic visual projections, world class dancers and mesmerizing vocals- all to the magic of his live electronics and violin.

His music is designed to take the listener/dancer on a journey traversing landscapes reflecting a myriad of diverse influences; a kaleidoscope of warm melodies and twisting, winding compositions. With six albums in his repertoire, this organic spaceship of frequencies balances musicality and ethereal soundscapes to evoke a deeper and hypnotic experience.

In between, she made the Grammy Award-winning Downtown Church (2010), her version of classic gospel (though it featured three original songs). She also became a member of Band of Joy, the group in which leader Robert Plant and his cohorts meld British and American folk, rock and spiritual music.

                                                                        American Kid, much of which Griffin says “was written to honor my father,” returns to typical Patty Griffin territory, which is to say that it features a group of remarkably powerful, personal and unpredictable songs arranged and performed in a style that doesn’t entirely repeat anything she’s done on her previous albums while drawing on all of them. Yet Griffin’s catalog is among the most unified in modern popular music, because her singing is as unmistakable and inimitable as her songwriting.

Their music is featured on Bank of Colorado’s radio and television advertisements.

DOG will release Live at a Flamingo Hotel, the first ever bottling of the band’s legendary live performance. While studio releases have seen high critical acclaim, it’s the band’s live show that has truly cemented it as one of America’s best and brightest acts, a rock n roll juggernaut that has won its large and ever-growing fan base by exceeding expectations.

                                                                                  “That’s always what we’ve wanted to do,” says bassist/vocalist Toby Leaman. “We’re one thing on a record and a different thing live. Somebody goes to a DR. DOG show and they come back again and they bring more people with them. Our live show is vital to how we view ourselves as a band.”

                                                                                  With Live at a Flamingo Hotel, the band has captured the essence of a DR. DOG show; no matter the venue or town, the medium is the message. That tiny article is important: It’s “A” flamingo hotel, not “The,” which lends itself to that idea of transient perfection, a band that gives its all to each and every audience, every night, all the time. “That’s the point of a DR. DOG show, transporting you in some way,” says Leaman. “Whether it’s a shit basement in Texas or an amphitheater in Philadelphia, it doesn’t matter, this is the place; this is what we do, no matter what.”

                                                                                                              Moonshine Bandits

                                                                                                              Backwoods bravado, patriot’s pride, country soul, keg-thumping beats — these are the qualities that Moonshine Bandits have championed since they began burning up the California club circuit back in 2003.

                                                                                                              Their message spread as they rolled from there through the heartland, the dirty South and beyond on their tour bus. No matter whether color their collar is or even if they wore a collar at all, people heard something of their story in their music — and popped back a cold one to celebrate that connection.

                                                                                                              Plenty of their trademark sound and message resonates through Baptized In Bourbon, their new album — reverence for God and country on “Red, White & Blue Collar” (“We answered to the call when Uncle Sam cried/You know we always stand for what is right”), a celebration of backwater saloons and Saturday nights on “Stomp Like Hell” (“Before the bar doors close, I’m a-get to stepping/I’m gonna stomp like Hell just to get to Heaven”), a promise to stand firm for freedom on “Raised Up” (“If you ain’t proud of where you’re from, get the hell out of town”).

                                                                                                              But there’s more — a new depth that encourages reflection, even hints of doubt. None of this compromises the defiant pride that’s always threaded through the songs of Bird and Tex, aka Moonshine Bandits. Still, something has changed since they released Blacked Out in 2015.

                                                                                                              Tex knows why. “This year has been a whirlwind of touring,” he explains. “We’ll play at a bike rally in Oregon one day and then fly to Alaska. That’s had a lot of input on this album, especially on our songwriting. We’ve always been entertainers first, songwriters second. Now I feel like our songwriting has caught up to the entertainment part of who we are.”

                                                                                                              In these past couple of years, he and his fellow bandit Bird have been in transition personally as well as artistically. They’ve gone from bus tours to jetting out for extended weekend jaunts. While playing for their die-hard, “blu-core” fans, vestiges of wilder days do appear, sometimes bringing old ways into conflict with new responsibilities.

                                                                                                              Tex lays out the question candidly. “When we’re away from our family, is the way we’re living acceptable to God, with all the partying and crazy shit we do on the road?”

                                                                                                              This dilemma was somewhere in whatever dream Tex was having late one night when he woke up suddenly. “Three words came to me: baptized in bourbon,” he remembers. “I texted Bird and my manager and said, ‘Hey, I don’t know what this means but it could be some pretty heavy stuff.’ The whole album started with that title.”

                                                                                                              The Bandits and producers, Burn County, withdrew to a cabin/studio deep in a forest in the state of Washington. They talked about things they’d experienced, lessons they’d learn and questions that remained. Conversations evolved into lyrics; feelings took on musical shape; tape rolled. And after two weeks they emerged with Baptized In Bourbon, a project unlike anything they’d ever cut before.

                                                                                                              “We didn’t sit down and say, ‘Hey, let’s do a themed album,’” Bird insists. “But the themes we were thinking of seemed to carry over song after song. It was like a circle. It wasn’t all heavy. There’s a lot of fun songs on the album too. But basically, Baptized In Bourbon isn’t just about bonfires and keg parties. There’s a lot more to it than that.”

                                                                                                              “The Sermon” starts mournfully, with strings and a quiet acoustic guitar. Then a preacher breaks in, a beat kicks off and from the pulpit we hear the query that underlies all of Baptized In Bourbon: “In light of knowing that God is with us, and in light of knowing that He sees us always, how are we going to respond with our lives?”

                                                                                                              The answer appears to be that you celebrate, you rock hard, you love without hesitation and fight without fear when you have to. And, if you’re Moonshine Bandits, you drive this story home with help from a gang of gifted guest artists: Crucifix on the slamming “I’m A Hellrazor,” Bubba Sparxxx on “51Fifty,” The Lacs on “Cards I Was Dealt,” Uncle Kracker on “Baptized In Bourbon,” Colt Ford and Outlaw on “Dad’s Pontoon,” Matt Borden on “Shook Me Up,” Jelly Roll on “Wild Ones” …

                                                                                                              … and maybe most memorably, the legendary David Allan Coe. David Allan Coe has done some shows with the Bandits to rowdy audiences. Apparently he liked what he saw when Tex and Bird sent him their arrangement of his classic anthem “Take This Job And Shove It.” He volunteered to join with them in the studio and later on stage. Coe also personally called both Tex and Bird to thank them as well as tell them he enjoyed their energy-filled live show.

                                                                                                              “I’ve always said there are three guys I wanted to work with before I quit music,” Tex says. “Two of them are dead; the third is David Allan Coe. We decided to shoot a video together at Shawshank. The night before we met in his hotel room. It was like we were old friends, listening to him talk about songwriting. The next day we went to the prison, where he had done three or four years of his life. We were kind of skeptical about what might happen because there’s a lot of emotion involved. Hell, I threw up after going into some of the cells. But he had a great time. Then that night, when we played a show in Bucyrus, Ohio, he did the song with us so we could have the footage.”

                                                                                                              Bird smiles at the memory. “Then when we stopped the show to do it again, he gets on the microphone and starts rocking Kid Rock’s ‘Sitting Here Wasting Time.’ It was incredible to see a 77-year-old guy rap to a slow drum beat. The crowd went bonkers. I’ll never forget that. We were so proud to earn his respect.”

                                                                                                              Baptized In Bourbon doesn’t stop there. The guys spin parallel stories on successive tracks, featuring male and female archetypes that their blu-core followers can recognize. “‘Renegade Rides Again’ says that you don’t know when the life we’re living is going to catch up with us. Then you go to ‘Hell On Heels,’ which is about some of the girls we’ve met,” Tex says, with a knowing laugh. “It’s pretty much all a true story. We don’t even embellish it. But that’s what happens when you run in this type of circle.”

                                                                                                              This is the music that Moonshine Bandits will take on the road later this year, most likely on a bus tour this time. Maybe it’s a bit of a risk to mix the sacred and profane, the rowdy and the introspective, on record and then onstage. But the payoff here is twofold: Their music demands attention from first note to last. And because they enjoy a strong mutual trust with their fans, honesty is essential to that bond.

                                                                                                              “I’m away from my wife and kids,” Tex sums up. “My partner has lost numerous fiancees because of this ride. Yeah, we’re out partying — not too crazy to where we’re out of control. And Bird’s dad is a preacher. So sometimes we do wonder if this lifestyle is acceptable. But this isn’t just about our lives. It’s a universal thing.”

                                                                                                              At heart, we’re all blu-core. We all hear some of our truth in what Moonshine Bandits are throwing down. Maybe it’s time for us all to be Baptized In Bourbon.
