Cuevo Perez
Cuevo Perez
With the essence of a nomadic musician, Mexican rocker Cuevo Perez, known simply as “Cuevo”, has been traveling the Latin Alternative rock scene with his bluesy riffs and lyrics of love, life and rock n’ roll. His powerful vocals, lyrical originality, and versatility have been showcased on legendary stages like New York’s CBGB’s and L.A.’s Whiskey A GoGo, House of Blues and The Roxy.

His debut solo project “Hasta Que el Sol Se Vaya“, featuring drummer Enrique “Bugs” Gonzalez (Los Lobos, Aleks Syntek), guitarist Fran Iturbe (Enrique Bunbury, Mikel Erentxun), and bassist Cesar Pliego (Kinky), showcases Cuevo’s ability to seamlessly combine deep, powerful lyrics with pure rock n’ roll melodies, equally filled with yearning and hope, light and darkness. Latin indie favorites Kinky, Zoe, Mikel Erentxun, Ruben Albarran, Mana, Carlos Santana, Ozomatli, Moenia and Juanes, are included in the long list of stellar musicians who have collaborated and shared the stage with Cuevo.

Cuevo released his next full-length album “Pajaros en la Bruma” in the Summer of 2014. Recorded in its entirety with Argel Cota (Palenke Soultribe, Ceci Bastida) on drums and Cesar Pliego (Kinky,Amandititita) on bass, and featuring guest vocals by Claudio Valenzuela (Lucybell), this new journey hints at an impressive and exciting evolution from his already powerful blues-tinged Latin Alternative sound, delving deeper into sonic and lyrical landscapes that journey through blues, rock and roll, Latin soul, punk rock, rockabilly and country music.
Ray Vaughn
Ray Vaughn
Ray Vaughn’s newest album may be called “Wounded Bird”, but he’s really more of a phoenix rising from the ashes of a forgotten San Francisco. He founded Punk/Art Rock band Hostages in 1979, and later Die Bossanova in 1984, leaving his mark on the then-thriving SF scene until disappearing from the public eye in 1992. Now, over 20 years later, Ray has returned as someone tempered by time and experience--with new stories to tell.
Karney
Karney
Throughout her career, Karney has blended musical influences ranging from punk, to Salsa, to the flower-powered music and politics of her hometown, San Francisco. In addition to this blend of influences, she also enjoys direct cross-pollination with many artists. She frequently works with PSM Recordings founder Steffen Franz, who co-produced her single “My Little Bush” in 2003, and who often tours with Karney providing dancehall style DJ toasts during live performances. That particular single also benefitted from the studio talents of legendary Reggae producer and solo artist Dennis Bovell (founding member of Matumbi) and engineering by Bill Ortiz, founder of Babyfat Music and trumpet player for Santana, and The Karney Band. Karney’s second full-length album “All Connected” was released in 2004 to wide media acclaim.
