Daniel Amedee & Gold Light: Living proof that a musician can be from New Orleans, but not necessarily be of New Orleans, a distinction that courses through his quirky, eccentric songwriting style, informed by a haunting bluesy vocalese that scratches the soul somewhere between Tom Waits and Captain Beefheart, and certainly belies Daniel’s 28 years. In fact, he’s been at it--writing and producing his own music, and getting by with a little help from his friends--since age 14.
Harmoos: A ghost pop + rock band from around Boston, MA. Motivational songs about freaking out and feeling okay. Releases on Holy Page, Blood Oath Slumber Party, and Lava Church.
