Dave Rave
Dave Rave
Dave Rave is a musician’s musician. To the general public, he’s the manic Teenage Head rhythm guitarist who graduated to lead singer and catapulted the band back into the charts; but musicians know him as a valued session player (Daniel Lanois, Andrew Loog Oldham, Alex Chilton, and countless others) who can play the best version of a song he’s never heard.
The Relatives
The Relatives
New York 3-piece The Relatives play a moving (and grooving), lo-fi folk rock, full of depth, wit and respectful nods back in music history.
Butch Berry

The Corner Laughers
Sassy and saucy, wistful and dreamy, San Francisco's indie-pop sweethearts The Corner Laughers combine rock-and-roll attitude with book smarts and open hearts to create a sound all their own. "Smart, bubbly pop ... The Corner Laughers' Ultraviolet Garden cuts studs its sugary hooks with quiz bowl vocabulary and surreal imagery. The tunes are airy, breezy and laced with unexpected lyrical twists ... Their second album, produced by the Orange Peels' Allen Clapp, puts a 1960s sheen onto conflicted, ebullient and intricately intelligent girl pop. All these songs are bright, sardonic, and without a trace of self pity, bouncing along on unstoppable beats and irresistible girls-rule harmonies." -- Blurt Magazine
The American Professionals
The American Professionals
The American Professionals take cleverly crafted songs of hope, love, guilt and fear, pepper them with melodic twists and lush harmonies, then shoot them out of a cannon at your earholes. Sometimes they get quiet, pretty, ethereal, even a bit spooky, then turn around and blow stuff up again.

For 2013, The Ampros bring their latest record “We Make It Our Business”, produced by Michael Romanowski at Coast Recorders in San Francisco, CA. No longer a one-man-band operation, this release features ten songs written and sung by both multi-instrumentalist Chuck Lindo and bass player, Cheryl Hendrickson, as well as a blistering cover of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings’ “The Way It Goes”.
