Everyone Orchestra - Brooklyn Sessions CD - Now, for the first time, Everyone Orchestra has taken the conducted improvisation concept mastered in their legendary live shows into the studio on Brooklyn Sessions. Conductor Matt Butler invited past collaborators--musical friends like drummer Jon Fishman (Phish), keyboardist/pianist Marco Benevento, Al Schnier (moe.), Jen Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band), guitarist Steve Kimock, saxophonist Jeff Coffin (Dave Matthews Band), vocalist/percussionist Jans Ingber (The Motet), mandolinist Jamie Masefield (Jazz Mandolin Project) and bassist Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green), to join him for several days of exploration and co-creation. The results range from hard-hitting grooves that take unexpected twists and turns ("Boots"), to sweet and expansive ("Pensive"), all with a spirit that is both liberated and focused. READ OUR REVIEW

Chasing Edison - 2012 Sampler EP - Chasing Edison is a high-energy-one-of-a-kind four piece rock band based in Charlotte, NC.

After a 2011 feature in Relix magazine, Chasing Edison has produced two self titled EP's and their LP "Black Maria" (named derived from Thomas Edison's 1st recording studio). Always constantly experimenting with new material, writing styles, and effects they push the boundaries during live performance. Notably Chasing Edison has shared the stage with Robert Randolph Family Band, RAQ, Jeff Coffin's Mutet, Otis Taylor, all within in the last year. Check out this Summer's festival circuit and look for Chasing Edison in a venue near and soon.

ALO - Sounds Like This CD - In April 2011, ALO convened at San Francisco's Mission Bells studio with no plans other than to make some music together.

Any distinctions between pre-production and real recording would be shed, allowing for ALO's instinctive spontaneity to make it to track.
