We NEED Music

Sonic Binder
Now more than ever, the world needs music. It needs creation of new music by many different people, no matter how extraordinary or ordinary. It needs the sharing of music between people. It needs to battle the horrible things that happen every day such as war and terrorism and unnecessary death and hurt of all kinds. Music binds us – it is a conduit for human compassion. It brings us together on a fundamental, primal level. It syncs us. For Paris, go make some music today.

VIDEO: Adicript – “Martyrs of the Blanket Hand”

Here’s a new lyric video from prog rockers Adicript of their song, “Martyrs of the Blanket Hand”. A dynamic song structure makes you think and the musical styling / heavy grit will make you want to throw some chairs around the room. Keep an eye out for these guys as they rock more and more heads in Sonoma County.

BIO: Adicript is a Santa Rosa based progressive rock band that strives to bring an uncompromising blend of technical musicianship and accessibility. The band formed in early 2013, with the creative chemistry between guitarist George Allen Cudworth and drummer David Gray as the catalyst, and the addition of singer Dustin Covington as the final piece of the puzzle. Since then, the trio has played numerous gigs, recorded the Ad Initium EP, and produced a large body of constantly evolving material, carefully crafting and refining their sound into something truly special. With George’s driving and articulate guitar work, David’s dynamic and layered drumming, and Dustin’s soaring melodies and poignant lyrics, the band hopes to share their musical vision with the world, and to do their part to bring rock back to the forefront of the music scene.

PODCAST: Jamie (Unsigned Acoustic Broadcast, 6/28/2015)

Jamie - Unsigned Acoustic BroadcastJamie (the second one) wrapped up the Unsigned Acoustic Broadcast last Sunday with a couple of original Ukelele songs. Her powerful voice combined with the tiny Concert Uke she held in her hands provided a natural dynamic that played perfectly together.

Thanks for the music, Jamie!





PODCAST: Jamie and Mel (Unsigned Acoustic Broadcast, 6/28/2015)

Mel and Jamie - Unsigned Acoustic BroadcastJamie and Mel kicked off the Unsigned Acoustic Broadcast as our first performers. With Jamie at the piano and Mel providing lead vocals, the duo gave us a glimpse into delicate subjects such as the death of comedian Robin Williams and the fame which the NFL brings (and subsequent fallout as the spotlight moves on).



P.S. Be sure to check out more songs by Jamie and Mel on their Reverbnation page.
