New Releases:

Yarn - Almost Home CDYarn - Almost Home CD - Yarn's new release continues to live up to their band name, weaving together the fibers of roots music into songs that are passionate and resonate with audiences across America. The Brooklyn born sextet are known for calling out the overproduced pop music of the day and revolutionizing roots music styles, transforming them into a fresh sound. Blake Christiana, an impressive songwriter and lead vocalist, confesses universal tales of life on the road that will appeal to edgy music hopefuls as well as fans of more traditional country music. They draw up the best of America's past and charge it with the insurgence of Americana's present. Yarn excels at unraveling their own blend of peaceful alt-country, indie-rock with a raw sound that begs for repeat listens.

Coming Soon:

The song, "Do You Want It," captures the essence of classic '70s funk and is destined to be a hit.

Then we brought in 20 musician sand played 6 sets over 3 nights for 40 audience members each set... and it turned out better than I ever could have hoped." (Michael League) We saw this band perform last year at Bear Creek and have been enfatuated ever since. - HGMN

New Releases:

Keller Williams - Bass CDKeller Williams - Bass CD - "Bass" is Keller's 17th album and the first on which he only plays bass. Comprised of 11 tracks, 9 originals and 2 covers, "Bass" documents Keller's exploration of creamy bass lines and groovy rocksteady beats mixed with his own unique style and vision.

And now a word from Keller:
Greetings Music Lovers. Thank you for partaking in yet another one of my self-indulgent musical journeys. In my never ending quest to do something different, I present you my first release containing no guitar. Not a single guitar was used in the making of this record. To me, that's different. And that's what I'm going for.

This record has no looping. This is a document of songs and the overall, open air, spacious vibe created by this trio we call Kdubalicious. I am honored to be joined by musical genius Jay Starling on keys, and the one-drop master Mark D on drums. The record was recorded, mixed and co-produced by recording god Jeff Covert at Wally Cleavers in Fredericksburg, Virginia during the summer of 2011.
Free the bass, and your mind will follow. ~ Keller

This seven piece ensemble, delicately blends instrumentation from across the globe in a uniquely American context. The uncommon use of the hammered dulcimer, melodically leads many of the group’s pieces, followed by the resonance of various acoustic instruments and a brooding foundation of heavy percussion. Layers of orchestral strings and sparse vocals create a cinematic appeal to the otherwise raw expression of musical compositions.
