Internationally beloved singer-songwriter/producer Azam Ali’s award-winning career has been defined by boldly defying genres and commercial expectations to heed her creative instincts. In keeping with this fearless spirit, her latest album Phantoms, is a masterstroke of artistic wholeness and focus. The darkly alluring record is Azam’s first self-produced entirely English language album that melds Azam’s mystical musicality with gorgeously gloomy electro-pop, adding a whole new dimension to an unconventional artist who has always eluded categorization.
Responsible for every facet of Phantoms from song writing, singing, programming, to production, Azam Ali pushes through the glass ceiling and enters the largely male dominated tech world to join in the ranks of other visionary female electronic musicians and producers who are shifting and shaping the landscape of electronic music.
 
Phantoms is retro-futuristic album that draws inspiration from electronic and shoegazing music of the 80’s and 90’s of such groups as Massive Attack, Portishead and Cocteau Twins, combined with influences of moody film soundtracks that combine classical and electronic music. The result is a lush electronic album rife with intriguing layers of rugged beats, synths, live strings, grimy industrial-tinged textures and dirty ambience. This edginess is beautifully offset by Azam’s distinct emotive, sensually feminine vocals and her elegant instrumental production choices.
It is an album that is at once melancholic and rapturous, introverted and danceable, dramatic and subtle. Though Phantoms is punctuated with tones of ambient, trip hop and techno, the album withstands any one category of electronic music. This being for the simple reason that Azam Ali continues to stand at the forefront of pushing the sonic envelope and defying genre boundaries.

From what was once a dream inspired by close friends, to humble beginnings filled with living room jams, late nights writing songs in the garage, backyard house parties and countless complaints from neighbors, San Diego-based reggae/rock band Through the Roots was born. 

By coincidence in early 2008, Evan Hawkins and Taylor Boatwright met at a local guitar center. It was there that Evan shared his vision with Taylor, which eventually led to the beginning of TTR. 

Evan and Taylor came from different musical backgrounds but shared some similar musical tastes, and both were very moved by reggae. They believed TTR would provide them with the perfect vehicle to spread their message and adopted a Cali reggae/rock concept. 

In late 2008, Through the Roots added Brady O'Rear to round out the group's core. He brought his own musical tastes, complete with Hawaiian Islands reggae, and mixed them with those of Evan's and Taylor's to give TTR a broader range of ideas and influences to draw from. 

Through the Roots quickly moved from the streets and backyard shows to touring in 2010 and soon hooked up for West Coast and national tours with some of the reggae/rock genres top headliners. The San Diego band eventually added Corrick Watson (lead guitar/vocals) and Budda Foster (bassist/keys) from Los Angeles to the talented, five-man mix. 

With the band set, Through the Roots looks forward to continue spreading its positive messages, and showcasing its high energy shows to a growing legion of fans.

Platinum-selling band PARACHUTE are on the brink of a momentous 2019 with the release of their first new music in three years, the new single "Young" from their highly-anticipated fifth studio album, coming spring 2019. In April, they will embark on The Young Tour 2019 which will travel throughout 35+ cities across the United States. Will Anderson, lead vocalist and songwriter of Parachute, calls "Young" one of the most personal songs he's ever written, but notes its undeniable relatability. "Everyone has felt that vulnerable feeling of uncertainty and fear of the unknown. Maybe that's what becoming an adult is all about, and the song is an exploration of that." Fans and critics alike are no stranger to Anderson's impeccable ability to connect as a songwriter, with Billboard hailing that he has a "knack for writing emotionally connecting, hook-laden songs that linger in the brain for days" as well as Idolator calling the band's past songs "well-crafted and infectious." The album and tour will mark the trio's first new material and full-fledged touring since the 2016 release of Wide Awake. Friends since childhood, Parachute's Will Anderson (vocals, guitar), Johnny Stubblefield (drums), and Christopher "Kit" French (saxophone, keyboards) spent nearly every afternoon of high school in Anderson's basement, dreaming up songs showing a deep affinity for classic pop, heart-felt rock, and tuneful blue-eyed soul. The band quickly began landing gigs locally and soon gained a following at the nearby University of Virginia. As their inaugural release under the name Parachute, Losing Sleep debuted at #2 on the Billboard Digital Albums Chart and climbed to #40 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Over the next few years, along with releasing The Way It Was and Overnight (which shot to the #3 spot on iTunes), Parachute toured with such artists as Kelly Clarkson, Gavin DeGraw and Mat Kearney in addition to three sold out headlining tours. The band has spent a decade touring internationally and turning out hit singles like the platinum "She Is Love" (#1 at iTunes), the gold "Kiss Me Slowly," "Forever And Always," and the infectious smash single "Without You" from Wide Awake (#1 iTunes Pop Album).

Luther Russell is a songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist who was born in Los Angeles, CA. His career began with DGC and American recording artists The Freewheelers twenty-five years ago. As a solo artist he has released an eclectic series of albums including his last studio outing, The Invisible Audience, a kaleidoscopic double-album that won many raves across the globe. As producer he has worked with many critically acclaimed artists such as Richmond Fontaine, Fernando, Fabiano Do Nascimento, Sarabeth Tucek and Ned Roberts. Luther's albums (and production work for others) have been praised by the likes of Uncut, Mojo, Word, BBC, Tape Op, L.A. Times, NME, The Quietus and more. His music has been featured on NBC, ABC, CBS, HBO and Showtime. One of Luther's latest projects is Those Pretty Wrongs, a collaboration with Jody Stephens of the legendary group Big Star. Their self-titled debut was released to ecstatic reviews and they've since toured four continents. As Those Pretty Wrongs work to complete their second full-length, Luther moonlights as guitarist in Robyn Hitchcock's current backing group, The L.A. Squires. Luther also co-wrote two songs for Weezer's recent Grammy-nominated self-titled record. A highly-praised two-CD retrospective of his career entitled Selective Memories: An Anthology was released this year on Hanky Panky Records, as well as a double-cassette version on SoCal cult label Burger Records. Luther's sixth studio album, Medium Cool, is due in January on Fluff & Gravy, proceeded by a 45 single of "The Sound Of Rock & Roll" b/w "Saturday's Child" in time for his first solo tour of Japan this fall. Both will be made available on cassette via his pals at Burger, who also release Luther's first-ever live cassette by the end of the year. Containing music that swings wildly between the madly rambunctious and starkly personal, Medium Cool is described by Luther as "a rough rock & roll album roughly about rock & roll". Medium Cool was recorded and mixed to tape and features Derek Brown of the Eels on drums as well as a guest appearance by the elusive Liam Hayes of legendary Chicago band Plush. Luther is still a Sagittarius.

Some opposites do more than just attract. Their coupling incites a spiritual big bang of boundless creativity, endless energy, and inspiration of all kinds. Such a union drives Brooklyn duo Great Good Fine Ok.

At first glance, vocalist Jon Sandler and producer and multi-instrumentalist Luke Moellman seem like a study in contrasts. Often clad in space age glittery jackets (or one of “100 kimonos”) and bathed in a laser glow, Sandler’s voice stretches from singer-songwriter sensitivity to funky falsetto. Something of an aural mad scientist, Moellman quietly draws on nearly two decades of production experience and an expansive arsenal of instruments—ranging from vintage synths, piano, and guitar to drums, vibraphone, and kalimba.

However, it works flawlessly for them…

Within 12 hours of meeting during 2013, the musicians recorded a debut viral and critical hit entitled “You’re The One For Me.” 2014 saw them release a pair of EPs—Body Diamond and 2M2H. Reaching #10 in iTunes Top Dance Albums Chart, the latter would be highlighted by fan favorite anthem “Something To Believe In” [feat. St. Lucia]. Multiplatinum juggernauts The Chainsmokers tapped their talents for “Let You Go,” which Great Good Fine Ok not only co-wrote but also featured on.

After logging countless miles on the road alongside the likes of X Ambassadors, Betty Who, Joywave, and Magic Man in addition to selling out three headline tours and performing at Bonnaroo, 2017 represented a high watermark for the boys. The group’s third EP, III, spawned the smash “Take It Or Leave It,” which became their fourth #1 on Hype Machine and clocked 16 million-plus Spotify streams in under a year. Simultaneously, they teamed up with Before You Exit for “Find Yourself.” A veritable smash, it crossed the 30-million-mark on Spotify in under six months.

Along the way, they garnered praise from Entertainment WeeklyBillboard, and Indie Shuffle who claimed, “I dare you to find another group in the past two years who has been so prolific and consistent with their releases while at the same time delivering some of the most heavenly signature falsetto vocals known to man.” Meanwhile, the likes of Twenty One Pilots, Foxes, and more have sought them out for remixes.

2018 represents another evolution. Holed up in a cabin on a Catskill Mountains writing retreat, they made a conscious decision to expand the creative palette yet again on their fourth EP.

Nothing can touch the chemistry between these two either. Fueled by that interplay, Great Good Fine Ok take pop to a new galaxy.
