    Current Swell

    Victoria, B.C.’s Current Swell are set to release their new album, Ulysses, on May 6, 2014.  The 12-tracks on Ulysses perfectly deliver the band’s textured, deep-groove sound while capturing the energy of their live show, which has earned them scores of fans across The Americas, Australia and Europe. The band will debut many of these new songs next month in Austin during SXSW (showcases tba).
     
    Ulysses was produced by Nathan Sabatino (Dr. Dog, Neko Case, Giant Stand) at Vancouver’s iconic Greenhouse Studios. The album captures every bit of warmth the studio’s massive Neve console could provide, as heard on “Rollin’” (a showcase for Stanton’s exemplary slide work), the title track “Ulysses,” rocker “Keys to the Kingdom” and the readymade sing-along “One Day I’ll Be Rich.”
     
    While Current Swell spent the better part of six months recording their previous album (and Nettwerk debut), 2012’s Long Time Ago, the four band members entered the studio with a clear goal and knocked Ulysses out in 20 days.
     
    “We got in the studio, put our heads down, got it down and we were out,” vocalist/guitarist Scott Stanton says with a laugh. “It was so refreshing. We didn’t overthink anything. As long as we could re-create it live, that was our only rule.”

    Current Swell is Scott Stanton (vocals/guitar), David Lang (vocals/guitar), Ghosty Boy (bass) and Chris Petersen (drums). From appearances at key festivals from Australia to Canada (Byron Bay Bluesfest, Peats Ridge, Rock The Shores, Ottawa Blues Festival and more), to sold-out headline tours of Brazil, to support slots with such established artists as Dispatch, Xavier Rudd, K’Naan, The Tragically Hip and even The Beach Boys, Current Swell’s infectious sound and raucous live shows have earned the quartet scores of devoted fans around the word. In 2012, Current Swell earned first place at Vancouver’s Peak Performance Project and headlined a Canada Day concert to a crowd of 45,000.

    Sometimes a song is more than just a song. Sometimes a song can be a mirror to the world, or to the hidden selves we are or want to be. Lily Kershaw’s debut album, Midnight In The Garden, explores emotional landscapes and heart clutching melodies that say the unsaid things we struggle to say ourselves. The album takes root in the titans of folk music…those classic songsmiths who weave tapestries of sound with fingerpicking and tales of often unspoken truths. In song, Kershaw is an old soul, but in person, she’s a kinetic 22 year-old, a “nearly life-long Los Angeleno,” she says. She’s ebullient and lively, quick with a joke and an infectious smile. Raised adjacent to the Hollywood machine, Kershaw offers an antidote to the long-mythologized Los Angeles glitz; she’s authentic, and honest, self-effacing and, above all, she is herself. She may not tell you this, but she’s conduit, a nexus of the experiences of the world around her. She feels the weight of the world, she says, but through song, she wears it as an emblem of who she is. Like the day-glow dreams of Los Angeles noir, she reveals the darkness that coexists with sunshine. “It’s all about death,” she laughs, while describing her music. “I’d love to say most of my music isn’t about death or heartbreak but, well, it is.” It comes as no surprise then, that in 2012, her single “As It Seems” provided the backdrop to the long-running CBS drama series, Criminal Minds. Her voice lilts and flows, as the guitar leans gently into minor keys, and she sings: Well I knew what I didn’t want to know, and I saw where I didn’t want to go, So I took the path less travelled on, And I’ll let my stories be whispered when I’m gone. The song caught fire, broadcast around the world. “People wrote to me saying, ‘This is the song I want to play at my funeral,’ it was unsettling at first,” she says, “but it felt good to know that my song connects with people.” Almost a year later, her song “Ashes Like Snow” appeared on the show with similar effect, wrapping audiences up in the meandering piano and her skyward arcing vocals. It was a song born from serendipity, nearly ten years in the making. “One day when I was at my parents house,” she says “I found this poem that I had written right at the time of the September 11 attacks, when I was just a young kid. I took some of those words and added the perspective from where we are today, in the long aftermath of war and struggle, looking back.” Kershaw is a compulsive creator, she jots down melodies and lyrics as she’s wandering through her days. She sings melodies into her phone while sitting in traffic or secretly hums a tune into a voice recorder while out at shows, capturing any inspiration that she can channel back into her music. Her debut layers lush instrumentation over the stark skeleton of her sketches, sauntering between swaying somberness and playful uplifting anthems. Like the subtle beauty of a black rose, Kershaw’s music shores melancholy with a sense of hope and catharsis. And like she sings, her stories — her songs — are whispers or echoes, messages in bottles, cast out into the world. Midnight In The Garden is set for release in September 2013 via Nettwerk Records.

  • Erland

    Erland

    ERLAND's story finds its beginnings with their front man from which the band bears its seemingly peculiar name; Erland Wanberg. Singer/songwriter Erland Wanberg evokes the spirit of heart-felt songwriting with the help of musicians Nate Keezer (drums), Marko Srdanov (guitar/keyboard), and Mike Moon (bass) to craft the original sound that would become the band ERLAND.

    Using Wanberg's 4 song EP as a template, the band worked together to arrange and record ERLAND's debut album "On Our Side" produced by Andrew McMahon and co-produced by Bear Erickson. "On Our Side" was self-released on February 28, 2013 under Wanberg's independent label Zero to Zenith Records. The release was followed by a sold out, nationwide tour opening for Andrew McMahon, Barcelona and Kate Earl in the Spring of 2013.

    From fan-funding and independently releasing a full length album, to self-funding a nationwide tour, ERLAND can't help but feel their future is bright and they are in complete control.
