Mira Sthira “A Fix” Released September 27th
About this new single Mira elaborates: “In this song, my addiction is described and thereafter characterized by “Violet” whom one’s higher wise self is in a dialogue with. Ultimately Violet is unsure she can let go of what binds her, but ultimately the wise self knows that what is really needed is to sit still in one’s blood, to allow one’s wounds to just be, and to no longer fill the wounds with false medicine that does not allow it to scab over and to heal.”
STREAM “A FIX” ON SPOTIFY ON SEPTEMBER 27TH
“A fix is about the experience of battling addiction in whatever way shape or form it shows up for you. It could be an addiction to a substance, a person, a behavior, or dysfunctional ways of relating to others.”
Apple Shakers “Blood, Sweat & Broke” Released September 22nd
Apple Shakers are an alt-rock two-piece comprising of Rory White (guitar/vocals) and Basil Steiner (drums/synths). The duo share a common goal of railing against the political and social landscapes of their time but also to give energy to souls that seek an alternative in a world of structures and formulas.
STREAM “BLOOD, SWEAT & BROKE” ON BANDCAMP NOW!
Apple Shakers’ “Blood, Sweat & Broke” (EP) results from reaching out above the parapet to seek new lands. Apple Shakers don’t want to elongate copy & paste lyrics, guitar, and drums of the post-punk apocalyptic they find themselves in. They seek a fresh sound, fished out of a new pond that no one knew existed.
Anton Commissaris “Closer to You” Released September 22nd
Anton Commissaris is a music composer, pianist, and San Francisco Bay Area singer. Anton loves all music but has a special place in his heart for Jazz and Soul music, which he acquired from an early age. Anton’s songwriting inspiration comes from some of Jazz and Soul music’s greatest composers: Cole Porter, Antonio Carlos-Jobim, Stevie Wonder, and Bill Withers.
STREAM “CLOSER TO YOU” ON SPOTIFY NOW!
Commissaris sets the stage for the story of a man who is determined to get closer to a lovely woman of his infatuation. She has yet to notice and reciprocate his feelings, but he is determined to win her over and will be as patient as needed.
Morgan Paros “What Love Is”. Released September 22nd
Morgan Paros – Songwriter, Co-Producer, Vocals, Keyboards, Synths. Her honest lyrics speak to the puzzle of being human the questions of her generation, and the feelings that come from not always knowing the answers.
STREAM “WHAT LOVE IS” ON SPOTIFY NOW!
“I first came up with the opening lyrics and melody while on tour with Ashe. We had landed in Nashville to play Bonaroo, coming off a flight from tour in Paris the day before. I sometimes will have an idea pop into my head and this one hit me as I was walking to the elevator in the hotel in Nashville. Whipped my phone out and recorded a quick voice memo before heading to play Bonaroo with her! Jeremy loved the idea when I shared it with him and we wrote the whole song based off that initial jumping point.”Morgan Paros
The Bootleggers Music Group “Those Eye’s (Bonus)”. Released August 25th
The Bootlegger’s Music Group is an international collective of musicians, artists, producers, composers, and writers. We like to say we exist in an “eighth continent” of sorts — a land that knows no borders, ownership, or division but is simply united in the belief that music is love, and love nourishes all beings. Soul is our currency: more valuable than any amount of money or prestige, whether you’re rich or poor we’re here to share the wealth one tune at a time.
STREAM “THOSE EYE’S (BONUS)” ON SPOTIFY NOW!
“Those Eye’s” was written by Paul E Jones after deciding that he wanted to add an old schoolChicago-esque blues tune to their growing catalog of Multi-Genre Music. This release brings their total to 67 tracks which have been released since Feb 2022.
Blind Man’s Daughter “Sundressed”. Released August 18th
Blind Man’s Daughter is a melodic progressive metal band from Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. The project started out in 2012 with founding member Ashley Wolfe writing songs, singing lead vocals, and playing guitar in Durango Colorado. Over the next 10 years, Ashley left Durango and moved around the USA while Blind Man’s Daughter remained Ashley’s passion project, a true labor of love and creative outlet.
STREAM THE ALBUM “SUNDRESSED” ON SPOTIFY NOW!
Ashley’s lyrics and vocals convey complex emotion with lyrical depth, clarity of thought and surprising feeling. Ashley’s lead vocals are sometimes smooth and flowing, sometimes with growls that will surprise you, sometimes soaring at other times close and soft but always powerful. The music is progressive and heavy yet is also sometimes intimate and has elements of metal, rock, and more. These influences combine to become a style that is compelling and unique.
