LA River Bend Release Feel Good Love Song

Americana/folk band LA River Bend has released its new single “Summer Wind” off its upcoming EP intended to be a feel-good love song. Check out the song below:

LA River Bend is a four-piece band made up of Nate Weiner (vocals, guitar), Emily Elkin (cello, vocals), Branden Stroup (bass, vocals, guitar) and Jacob Seldes (drums) and have honored traditions of Americana folk by building the walls of their epic soundscapes, embracing the dynamics and ultimately developing an aesthetic unique to their own.

Their latest single “Summer Wind” features three-part harmonies, driving drum beats and catchy Californian melodies built upon intricate guitar embellishments, indie-folk facets and poetically pop melodies. The fast paced, toe-tapping anthemic chorus is highlighted by the band’s approach of exploring the new sounds that could only be found in the So Cal environment.

The band began life as backing Weiner’s solo album, “Ride The Sun,” where the group spent time rehearsing and touring up and down the West Coast. After spending hours recording and mixing tracks for this project, with longtime friend Stroup and the addition of Elkin’s string arrangements, LA River Bend was born. With the introduction of their now signature three-part harmonies and Seldes on percussion, the new and improved band mastered their authentically rustic, yet beautifully atmospheric sound.

“The addition of Seldes to the band is immeasurable, because I think our sound would have been less dimensional without his style of drumming,” Weiner said.

LA River Bend’s upcoming EP entitled “Run These Hills” is a collection of relaxing, vivid, nature themed music, bringing a contemporary and fresh approach to the indie folk genre and was entirely self-recorded by Stroup. Mastered by Grammy award-winning Eric Boulanger (Eric Clapton, Iggy Pop, Green Day), the EP is focused thematically on the symbolism of nature-based imagery and the tracks depict a serene feeling reaching emotional depths.

“The calming influence of nature in LA has been a huge musical inspiration to us,” Weiner said.

Zayde Wolf’s Single “Higher Than High” Inspires Through Tough Times

Nashville-based ZAYDE WØLF has released a new single titled “Higher Than High.” Check out the song below:

ZAYDE WØLF is the moniker for two-time Grammy nominated producer, songwriter and mixer Dustin Burnett, who was moved to write a song that lifted people from the tragedy the country faced in the past few months. The result was “Higher Than High,” written about pushing through mental and physical breaking points. The song continues to build on his reputation for making music that inspires and motivates to push his fans through barriers and get through difficult times.

The ZAYDE WØLF project came somewhat accidentally, as Burnett himself explains.

“Towards the end of 2015 I was producing some new music as a concept,” Burnett said. “I had these new ideas, but when a couple of singers fell through, I just decided to sing on it myself. I finished the songs, and rather than use my name, I listed, ‘Zayde Wolf,’ as the artist and sent it to a licensing company in Los Angeles called Lyric House. Pretty much immediately, one of the songs was licensed. Jessica Cole, Lyric House’s President responded, ‘So who’s Zayde Wolf, anyway? We need more songs.’ That’s literally the accidental story of how I became Zayde Wolf.”

His debut album “Golden Age” released in 2016 introduced him as a formidable new voice in indie pop and afforded him the opportunity to let his own voice shine after years of helping others to do the same. Music by ZAYDE WØLF’s can be heard regularly on commercials and promos for the NCAA, NFL, NBA, XBOX and has been used in television shows and movie trailers. Burnett has also worked with artists such as Tyrone Wells, Generdyn, Us the Duo, Augustana, Dave Barnes and more. He also wears the hat of co-founder of That Sound, a boutique drum sampling company that has become the go-to for songwriters, producers and mixers looking for unique drums sounds and samples.

Burnett has experienced the power of music firsthand, and he’s made it his mission to share it with the rest of the world.

“The general message of Zayde Wolf is encouraging people,” Burnett said. “These songs are helping me in all these different ways. For a song to start in one place and then move all over the world to people who speak very little English is wild. These people reach out to me daily and say they are impacted by these songs in ways that turn their week around for better, or that the songs lead them to rethink a hard situation… and that’s powerful and humbling to me.”

G O L D N W O L F Release Music Video for “Lone Wolf”

Seattle indie/alternative band G O L D N W O L F has released their first music video for the single “Lone Wolf.” Check out the video below:

The band’s creation was inspired by different aspects of life and sound with each song bringing an emotionally anthemic vibe. “Lone Wolf” was mixed by Jean-Marie Horvat (Justin Timberlake, Michael Jackson, The Weeknd) and mastered by Dave Kutch (Bruno Mars, Macklemore, Ryan Lewis). The single illustrates the essence of the band by breaking the mold and going against the grain of what mainstream society while living in the moment and being present.

The band was formed in 2016, when Austin Robert (formally of Girl on Fire), Nicholas Wiggins (formally of Aiden) and Jake Jones (formally of New Years Day) wanted to start a fresh outfit that could bring life to a new generation of music. By removing all limitations, they decided early on to break the mold and create a completely unique sound that does not fit into one of many boxes of genres.

“Rock ‘N’ Roll Forever” Showcases Radio Wolf’s Talents

Canadian/British electro-rock outfit Radio Wolf will release its highly anticipated debut four-track EP “Rock ‘N’ Roll Forever” on Oct. 31. Check out the video for the track “Song on the Radio” here:

Radio Wolf is the creation of songwriter, musician and producer Oliver Blair. His original electronic rock outfit, Kindle, transformed his music into a visual experience complete with cyberpunk burlesque dancers.  After building a name for himself by touring and collaborating with UK artists including Ladytron, Sohodolls, Client, Hotel Motel and Kelli Ali, as well as performing at the legendary Notting Hill Arts Club, electro-pop band Client quickly signed him to their independent record label, Loser Friendly. His all-instrumental first album was then released, simply titled “Kindle.”

As Radio Wolf, Oliver has written and produced retro-future rock songs with guest vocalists as collaborators, Marika Gauci (Hotel Motel), Sarah Blackwood (Client/Dubstar), Kelli Ali (Sneaker Pimps) and Holly Dodson (Parallels). The sound is a unique fusion of electronic music and rock ’n’ roll, with a distinct retro-futuristic edge. The songs are crafted with lyrical and melodic power, combining uncanny rock guitar hooks, lush electronics, and distinctive vocal delivery.
