"The band JUNK plays its own original music made first to satisfy the musicians that make it. We blend styles to make us feel good when we listen to it." Dirty D / JUNK
"I wrote 'Room with a view' back in 2010 or possibly 2011. I played guitar and the song had lyrics and I used to sing it with three friends of mine in some sort of canon. Never recorded it though, until summer 2020, when I tried it out in an instrumental version in my studio.
Not long ago, Gavan Waldby came out with a very personal song titled "Thanks For That", which was dedicated to the four special women in his life that have always been around having his back. Now, the artist has finished a new, instrumental version of the song.
I became overwhelmed by world events, the War in Ukraine is devastating, and the pandemic has taken such a toll, I needed to find a way to feel in control of something. Using creation as my vehicle, I poured myself into this in March of 2022 as a sort of side project challenge. It became so much more to me. The name and titles were drawn from my connection to my garden and the natural world. My garden has been a safe haven for me, a place for serene reflection, which this album takes to heart. Golden Hour and Gala Gardens as a whole album is soothing like a balm.
I noticed about "Human Heart" is that she is not speaking from the first person in this one. She is singing as a narrator in third person, yet she still delivers a very emotional performance vocally. That concept (the storyteller type) is a Folk music approach. Interesting.
"One day my friend Nathan (Dubxilla) told me he wanted to write a song about Buddy Holly and Lubbock, TX, where we live, with the title of "Buddy Hollywood.". I thought it was a good idea, then went home to write the chorus/hook part. I recorded it and created a simple beat and space for verses, then sent it to Dubxilla. He wrote the verses the next day, then we got together and started recording in my living room, bringing in our electric guitar friends Jacob Nalle and Cameron "Cornbread" Baker. I want this song to feel like taking a vacation from right where you are!!" Chris Hudgins
"I’m presenting listeners with an avant-garde experience that is both spiritually fulfilling and musically captivating. Inspired by the jazzy era of 90s Hip-Hop as well as the more industrial, experimental trap sound of the 2010s onward, Danny K seeks to push the boundaries of music even further, bending genres and breaking barriers. Furthermore, on top of the unique production, Danny offers his lyrical ballads with words that truly capture the attention of the listener." Danny K
"Overall, Speak No Evil is an exploration through the peaks and troughs of what makes me tick, makes me think and makes me suffer. It's groovy for a reason, no matter how crazy the world gets, it's still beautiful. It's still groovy. And the same should be said for every human life. Accepting the beauty and growth to be gained through adversity and pain, sometimes makes you a happier, healthier and stronger individual and ultimately, of more use and resource to others who may be suffering. Or struggling." Becca Starr
“Taking as inspiration from the master of timeless wisdom, Khalil Gibran’s illustrious works, especially in current times, I feel that his thoughts are so very relevant. It was something we collectively wanted to execute musically. Literally as Gibran says, ‘solitude is a silent storm that breaks down all our dead branches; yet it sends our living roots deeper into the living heart of the living earth.’ I am so honored to have been a part of this process.” Ayaan Ali Bangash.
