No Kings

No Kings

No Kings is a surf-rock/ska/dub group based out of San Diego, originally formed by Joel Brust and Garrison Cyr. After leaving their first band Subliminal Trip in 2011, Joel and Garrison continued writing music together. They soon enlisted friends Rafa Scatolin and Matt Cook, and have been writing and recording music together ever since.
No Kings plays a sonic fusion derived from the rhythms of first and second-wave ska and reggae, the guitar sounds of psychedelic and surf-rock, interspersed with the frenetic energy of punk.
Southern California has many musical tastes and No Kings blends the flavorful culture into a sound all can enjoy.

Imagery Machine

Imagery Machine

Home grown in San Diego, Imagery Machine is no stranger to the city’s eclectic music scene. Its members include five of the city’s most talented young veterans, who only recently came together to create an ethereal, yet driven style of music. While the group would describe themselves as female-fronted San Diego rock, Imagery Machine also embodies the spiritual reincarnation of classic jam bands from yesteryear, adding to it their unique, modern perspective. Comprised of lead guitarist James Howard, drummer Tyler Shimkus, vocalist/keys player Daechelle Hernandez and Paul Holbach on bass, this innovative group is heralded by the haunting, soulful lead vocals of Jennie Lynn Grunstad. The color of their energy reflects in their performances, and the group commands a stirring stage presence that has already packed some of San Diego’s most popular indie venues. Just like their live shows, Imagery Machine’s recently released, self-titled EP evokes powerful, touching emotionalism paired with intimate lyrics and a galvanic beat that is all too rare in the modern age.

Zach Alwin & The Duck Funk

Zach Alwin & The Duck Funk

Zach Alwin is a Long Beach-based Funk/Pop singer, songwriter, producer and band leader.  He’s an artist that mixes deep confessions from the bottom of his heart with a cartoonish sense of humor and a brand of retro party music.  His songwriting style says the most with the least while his band gets people to the dance floor: profound heart wrenching thoughts stated with beautiful simplicity over booty-shaking funk beats.  Zach’s solo-project started in 2013 when he locked himself in his bedroom and emerged two months later with 50 songs and a voice of his own.  The project has since grown with the help of producer Gene Shiveley (Rolling Stones, P!nk) and his seven-piece band Duck Funk.  Zach draws from classic R&B and funk influences in his music but his inspirations are more personal, “My greatest musical influence is honestly my dad.  He showed me how alive music can truly make you feel.  I just want to share that with people.”

Grim Slippers

Grim Slippers

it starts with energy. pure, raw, irreducible energy. its source is undefined. its destination, unknown. but it is here, and you feel it now.

an opportunity has presented itself. a chance to tap into something greater, something beyond comprehension yet engrained in consciousness. intangible, yet palpable.

it flows like liquid, like electricity, like time. continuous and effortless, it is both always moving and ever present.

connecting the spirits among us. conserving the beauty around us. contesting the walls in front of us. we are Grim Slippers.

Steph Johnson & Rob Thorsen

Steph Johnson & Rob Thorsen

In the wake of the economic crisis of 2008, aspiring musician Steph Johnson made a brave choice: The singer/guitarist chose to abandon her 12-year career in banking and pursue her dreams of making music full-time. It wasn’t the only time the intrepid Johnson would eschew the safe decision.

In 2011, Johnson had already released two albums and was clearly on the way up in the soul/R&B musical genre with jazzy undertones. In fact, her second CD won an San Diego Music Award for “Best Jazz Record.”

Starting out in a career as competitive as jazz in your early 30’s is a dangerous proposition, but what sets Johnson apart are her prodigious, innate abilities, which have drawn some of San Diego’s best jazz musicians to her — rather than the other way around.

Johnson learned to sing as a child, accompanying the powerful sounds of her mother’s soul music collection. “I thought everybody sang like Aretha Franklin,” Johnson said. “But because I had a big voice, even as a little girl, whenever I tried out for the choir, in elementary or middle school, I was made an example of how not to sing — because I had this big voice that wouldn’t blend.”

 

Johnson has been working hard all year, developing her repertoire with the trio and making a new recording, which the band has just finished.

Joanna Gerolaga

Joanna Gerolaga

Aloha All!

My name is Joanna Gerolaga and I am a 21 year old musician from Honolulu, Hawaii. I recently graduated from the University of Hawaii at Manoa with a degree in Political Science and a minor focus in Women’s Studies. I recently quit my day job to focus more on music and to see where that path would lead me. I currently play at many different restaurants, bars, and music venues all over Oahu and mostly in Waikiki. I have opened for youtube artists such as Leroy Sanchez and Ernie Halter at some of the larger music venues and concert halls here in Hawaii.

My style and genres range from oldies to hip hop, R&B, and indie and pop in between. I play solo with the help of a few effects pedals such as a looper, an octave pedal, and a harmonizer. I enjoy building songs up by first looping the melody, then adding some bass into it, looping percussion beatbox with my mouth, and then adding my own flare with solos and leads.

Nick Crook

Nick Crook

…is a 19 year old Singer/Songwriter originally hailing from a small suburb outside Fort Worth, TX. Though born and raised in the south for a good portion of his life, he also spent a lot of time in an even smaller town on the North Shore, located on the island of O’ahu, HI. This upbringing in two totally different areas left Nick with a very wide sense of musical taste, which can be heard in his own songs today.

At the young age of 12, Nick took up the guitar after hearing his father play “If I Fell” by The Beatles on his own guitar. He had his dad show him some of the basic chords (“this is how you play a G, this is how you play a D…”) and taught himself from there. It was a few years later that he had started singing and writing, eventually moving to San Diego, CA to pursue his music career after finishing high school.  Though he had been writing for years at this point, it was here that he started finding “his sound”, developing a unique blend of blues, soul, funk, and sometimes even folk (with many other unlisted influences) as his style. He has drawn comparisons to John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Adam Levine, Jack Johnson and others, though Nick aims to bring a flavor all of his own to the table.

On first impression she is sweet and lovely, bright and cheerful…then, with a flourish of harmony pouring from her guitar, she steps up to sing…and you enter another realm. Hannah is radiantly fluent in the universal language of song, and she has the gift of making seriously beautiful music with effortless grace. Her performances are always artistically surprising and deeply moving. She finds treasure in even the most daunting of life’s experiences. Her songs and her voice, soulful and haunting, are magic, and she is fearless in sharing the most complex of emotions with her listeners.

Performing with an openhearted sense of compassion and wonder, her voice soaring from an earthy blues swagger to an ethereal heart rending whisper, like a lullaby in a storm, she packs an emotional wallop. Eloquent, warm and wise in an innocent way, she has a comprehensive artistic vision, a vision that is as inspiring as it is engaging.

Elise Trouw

Elise Trouw

A few months after finding my way around an actual drumkit, my parents realized that I was serious about drumming, so they supported my cause and enrolled me in School of Rock, where I learned how to play and perform with other young musicians. From Mitch Mitchell’s jazz-rock waltz on Jimi Hendrix’s “Manic Depression,” to the syncopated groove of Richard Bailey on Jeff Beck’s “Blow by Blow,” to the funky feel of Tower of Power’s David Garibaldi, I wanted to learn it all.

During my high school years, I started reading charts in band, and jazz became another component of my musicality. At the same time, I began writing both on piano and guitar, spending hours before, after, and even during school to fulfill my creative desires. Because of my dedication to music and growing following on social media, I graduated early to commit fully to music and the creation of my first album. The decision to perform all of the instrumental and vocal tracks on the recordings stemmed from my desire to learn more about recording and to push myself beyond my own limits.

Peter Hall

Peter Hall

Personality goes a long way. Sometimes the charm of one’s soul shines through in a way that exceeds all technical issues, politics, and personal preferences. All I have to say about this 13- song collection, in terms of its techinical value; is that it’s homemade. Its clean, bare bones, and free of any slick sonic ointments. Not one studio trick And this, my dear friends, is exactly what makes Peter Hall’s CD so charmingly warm and human.

While much of the world is stressing on the newest, slickest. biggest, baddest, bestest next thing ever, this sounds like he sat down one day with a beer, hit the record button, and started spilling his guts as a guy. Meet Peter Hall. He’s right here in person, in 3D – a person embedded in and giving life to an otherwise lifeless piece of mass-produced digitally capable plastic. Tough trick, artistically speaking. He tells stories and spins a heartfelt logic in a unique baritone croon that is quite special indeed. it was the first-thing that struck me as soon as I popped in the disc.

Michael Fairchild

Michael Fairchild

An accomplished singer/songwriter, Michael Fairchild has received wide success in various local markets. His music is often considered pop-gone-wrong, a label he heartily embraces for its peripheral designation; It allows me to retain a unique musical identity without making me feel like I have to orient myself or my music in a predetermined direction.

Drawing from a mix of music, literary and pop culture influences, Michael writes songs that personally explore universal demons. His lyrics are catchy and thoughtful with melodically simple constructions. These techniques enable audiences to read their own experiences and emotions into the songs. This reaction compels Michael to continue writing, producing and playing to packed audiences in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. “Since I rarely think of the audience during my writing process, as it is a more solitary act, I am floored when fans come up to me after the show and say ‘this is exactly how they feel’; it makes me feel like there is something bigger out there and that I am somehow more connected to my fellow humans.”

Crossed Swords: Modern sword-fighting demos

Crossed Swords: Modern sword-fighting demos
The Cabrillo Academy of the Sword was opened in February of 1996 at the location it still occupies. Because it is on the second floor of an 80 yr-old building, it was necessary to establish it as a private club for able-bodied members of the U.S. Fencing Association only, and it has maintained that identity since. It has a threefold mission: (1) to provide a source of high-level, professional fencing instruction for the San Diego area (2) To offer a place for recreational fencers to learn the sport and to enjoy it on a regular basis, and (3) To provide the facilities, instruction and training to enable tournament fencers to be successful at the highest competitive levels.
That the club has been able to achieve these goals can be determined by the fact that roughly two-thirds of its members are recreational fencers, almost all of whom learned to fence right here. In competition, our fencers have won two national championships in Women’s saber, and have earned national medals in Junior Men’s Epee, Men’s Foil and Veteran Men’s Saber. Locally Cabrillo fencers have captured a large portion of the gold, silver, & bronze medals warded in San Diego every year.
Of our approximately 100 members, about a third are female. Currently our youngest fencers are 10 years old while our oldest are in their eighties.
Fencing is classified as a “Lifetime Sport” by the president’s council of Physical Fitness, which means that it can be learned and enjoyed at almost any age. However for instructional reasons, we set a minimum age of 10 years for participation in our group classes, but will take a student as young as eight for private lessons.

The League of Liars was born one fine autumn morning in the back of a Bentley touring car, en route to Cardiff-By-The-Sea (along the lackadaisical Pacific Coast Highway). Unified in the desire to provide the most believable and sweetest-smelling contradictions known to humankind, Sppike Mike (Bass), Diamond David (Guitar), Rumble T (Drums) and Micheal Fairchild (Vocals, Guitar) plot sonic assaults with Love-In precision. Blending blues, funk, folk, rock and pop genres in the creation of a super sweet and fun outcome that just can’t be ignored. Ask your ass why it’s moving when you hear our tunes.
This sonic potion has garnered the boys much acclaim. From local music show live air play, The Local 94.9 and 91X Loudspeaker, to winning the 2011 San Diego County Fair’s people’s choice award with LOL has been invited back to play the fair ever since.

Jon Kanis

Jon Kanis

Jon Kanis once asked me, “Are you a Plimsouls fan?” Like any right-thinking music writer I said, “Of course” — which is how I found out Kanis was Peter Case’s newsletter publisher and road manager in the early ’90s. This impresses me, and I was already impressed with Kanis. I have been since his 1997 folksy/psychedelic EP A Pair of Opposites, the first of his many collaborations with überguitarist Mike Keneally (Zappa’s one-time touring axeman).

“I didn’t learn how to play the guitar,” he says, “until I moved to the West Coast and, six months later, having just turned 19, I bought a fairly cheap Martin copy, a Montaya, for around $150 at the now-defunct Dave’s House of Guitars on El Cajon Boulevard.”

Before becoming a full-time musician, Kanis spent six working for David Peck’s local company Reelin’ in the Years Productions, an historical music film and video archive. Kanis has always had an ear for good music and good musicians; witness how his early ’90s backing group the Wondermints became Brian Wilson’s touring Smile band.

In addition, he began running his Spin Wizard mobile DJ business in 2000, accumulating over 120,000 tracks in his playlist by 2012.

Regarding his equipment, he uses the aforementioned Montaya, with a handful of modifications from the guys at Top Gear, a black Epiphone that stays tuned to open C, a black Telecaster copy, and a Bedrock amp, a couple of powered Mackie speakers, and a cheap, functional Behringer four-
channel mixer that allows him to entertain as a disc jockey in addition to playing solo or with a group.

As of 2012, Kanis was also playing with the Assumptions (bass), Listening to Rock (vocals, bass), and Got It Covered aka ADD/C (vocals, bass). “I’m currently working on 23 Skidoo!, the first of five books that I want to publish,” Kanis told the Reader at the time. 23 Skidoo! is a collection of 45 songs composed over 25 years, and the books will feature a complete recording sessionography tracing Kanis’ activities as a musician, producer, and archivist, including all 240 episodes of his State Controlled Radio programs.

In summer 2012, Kanis taught a nine-week class on Astrologyat Kwan Yin Holistic Center on Grape Street Square (30th and Grape Street), where they also offered astrological natal chart readings and tarot readings.

The soundtrack for the documentary A Box Full Of Rocks: The El Cajon Years of Lester Bangs includes several tracks by Kanis, as well as songs by 1960s/70s rockers Thee Dark Ages (who would frequently jam with rock critic Bangs), as well contributions by Robert Williams (Captain Beefheart), Jack Gimble, and the Flying Sandolini.

June 2014 saw the release of a Kanis anthology, All-American Mongrel Boy (1989-2014), featuring eighteen songs including six previously unreleased tracks, as well as selections from the Walk Without Me EP (never before available on compact disc), the A Pair Of Opposites EP, and the 2005 double LP Cabalistic Dispatch (recorded with Mike Keneally). That summer, Kanis also formed a Hollies tribute group with Liz Abbott and David Fleminger, with gigs being planned for later that year.

His 2016 album Fundamentalism Is the Only Way, co-produced by Kanis with Christopher Hoffee (Atom Orr, Truckee Brothers, the White Buffalo), is the fourth in a series of projects that Kanis has collaborated on with executive producer Ed Turner of Road Ahead Productions.

“There’s a lot of symbolism on this record, both in the music and the lyrics, as well as in the artwork,” says Kanis. “There is a lot of doubling. I see ‘Devil in My Head’ as the flipside to the same coin that is coupled with the track ‘Lahiri’ on side two. Divinations systems like Tarot, astrology, and I Ching are something that I’ve explored for over 25 years. The duality between our demons within and the better angels of our nature is something that we all have find a way to keep in balance, no?”

One track, “Devil in My Head,” was recorded in rooms 236 and 237 at the Holiday Music Motel, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. “‘Devil in My Head’ is a just a playful playlet that spontaneously erupted between myself and a Wisconsin musician named Tomcat Joe,” he says.

Other songs are more whimsical. “There’s a lot of macabre humor in ‘Dark Songs’: psychopathic clowns, dancing to a polka beat, enacting murderous mayhem. I wanted the song to a snapshot of someone’s psyche going from absolute bottom to a transformation where the shackles of the demons are left behind and broken free of and a new world of possibilities opens up. All because you had the courage and the strength to transcend your self-imposed limitations.”

Tracks like “Where Is Joe Strummer When You Need Him?” have strong political content. “This song was written when 43 was in office [George W. Bush], but even ten years later the sentiments hold true of speaking out against the Empire and such dystopian, unconstitutional moves as passing something as odious as the Patriot Act in the dead of night behind closed doors. Ironically, Obama has been responsible for more deaths than W. So much for change you can believe in. The psychopathic pawns that are our so-called ‘representatives’ are shills for the oligarchy. If it didn’t begin that way, it certainly has been during the 20th century onwards.”

The album is his first to appear on 180-grain vinyl. “I do think that the current trend of younger people embracing the vinyl format, and older fans re-investigating vinyl after a long couple of decades in the digital domain is a fantastic shift in the culture. It represents so many things…I love that format. It’s timeless, and it’s a great format for telling a story, setting a mood, having an arc and a rise and a fall to how all of the songs build upon one another.”

Taken by Canadians

Taken by Canadians

Forged by sinister hands and wrought of love, sweat, and American rock and roll, Taken By Canadians is a vibrant orgy of rapacious melodies and disquieting candor, presented in a hot fervor by a bunch of devilishly charming ne’er-do-wells. Their earlier works (see album, “Here’s To Returning All The Tragedy We Saw”) were pretty folked up, featuring more upright bass, violin, and acoustic guitar. Their new songs (see album, “we eat you like a person”), are decidedly more rock & roll, and feature a more electric instrumentation. “we eat you like a person” was released June 2nd 2016 on End of Impressed records.
The band was conceived in a coastal region of Southern California, and is currently thought to be basing operations out of the small town of Oceanside. The threat, however, is far reaching.

“The Joyelles function more as a collective of singers and performers instead of just being a band,” says Wilson. Their summer 2016 tour took them up and down the west coast, as well as several east coast dates running through August 18 at the Cake Shop in New York, NY.

Penalosa’s first tour with the Flamin’ Groovies, which began in April 2013, included a music festival in Australia as well as sold-out shows in Japan and San Francisco. He was asked to join full time following the tour.

Dave Humphries – Dick Van Ransom Tribute

February 1964: The Beatles’ “Do You Want to Know a Secret” and “Love Me Do” dominated the U.S. and U.K. charts. British songwriter Dave Humphries remembers it well — he was there. Humphries moved to San Diego in 1996, but at one time the native of Durham City, in northeast England, was known as someone on the periphery of the Beatles story. In fact, he holds the official title of “The Man Rejected by Apple Records [four times] More Than Anyone Else Alive.”

In April 2010, Humphries released his fifth album, Hocus Pocus on Joker Lane. “The title came to me after my wife met this interesting guy while in her art studio at Balboa Park,” says Humphries. “The guy just kind of wandered in and, after hearing that her husband was doing a CD, he told her he’d been sent from God to give me the album title. How could I refuse a prophet like that?”

In late 2014, Humphries began teaming up with Greg Gohde and Bass Clef Experiment Trio (with Owen Burke on drums), for performances at local venues like Java Joe’s.

Kathryn Cloward

Kathryn Cloward

When I was a little girl, I loved writing songs and singing them for my dolls in the sanctuary of my own room.  For as long as I can remember, I’ve heard lyrics and melodies in my head at the same time. My life’s dream was to write songs and share them with others.

I bought my first guitar when I was 18 years old.  Even though singing cover songs were fun for me throughout the years, I had a deep desire to sing my own songs. The first time I sang a few of my original songs in a coffee shop was when I was 28 years old. All of my friends came to see me and it was quite special.

The songs I knew I wanted to share with my “adult” music were much like the stories I have been sharing through Kathryn the Grape—stories that help others awaken, heal, transform, and shine. The work I’ve done through illustrated me, and continue to do, has provided a river of clarity to navigate myself back into the flow of my soul’s purpose of being an intentional storyteller and a messenger of love.

He is a troubadour by definition, using his acoustic guitar as the foundation for music that takes in rock and reggae with a decidedly surf or beach vibe. However, there is much more to his sound. He is a multi-faceted performer whose music will bring a smile, whether you catch a solo performance or a full band set.

Lutes is a multi-instrumentalist, who plays drums, bass, keys and guitar, and is also heavily involved in production work, “but I really enjoy singing the most,” he said, “as it has the most emotion involved,” In addition to his solo career, he’s also been involved in several notable bands over the years, including Hawaiian group Makua Rothman Band, Riverside-based indie rockers Everything Said, Aquile, from TV’s “The Voice,” and multiple San Diego Music Awards nominees the Defamation League.

Fast Heart Mart

Fast Heart Mart

I was born Martin Stamper and I earned my moniker when I passed out and died a few times and was finally diagnosed with a heart condition that makes my heart fibrillate or race? “Fast Heart Mart”! Don’t worry, I now have a defibrillator that shocks my heart back into beating so I can keep singing songs about questioning the system, the Big picture, and other fascinating things! I hope my music is very interesting and funny and not so loud that you feel like you couldn’t turn to a friend standing beside you and chat a bit and that you can hear the lyrics. I mean it gets loud in parts, but on the whole I hope it’s a reasonable volume?  I sing, play guitar, banjo and harmonica sometimes by myself (solo) and sometimes with a band. My music is a blend of rock-folk-punk-blues-grass-raga OR Sonic Folk-Rock for short.

Established in 1999, I have toured a lot in my Volkswagen Vanagon (32,000 miles on vegetable oil), played shows from coast to coast in the USA, toured both islands of New Zealand, released about 10 albums, and opened for some really great musical acts, such as The Handsome Family, Jeffrey Lewis and the Junkyard, Beck (unoffically twice out on the street at his concerts, though he thanked me once), Golden Boy (Elliot Smith’s guitar sidekick) Calexico, Railroad Earth, Nathan Payne, Ok Go, Lucero, Megan Jean and the KFB and tons of my friends’ amazing bands.

Little Dove

Little Dove

Little Dove began as a collection of songs that Vanja presented to a lone drummer. Having freshly relocated to Los Angeles, Vanja remembered Dylan’s unique playing style and Dylan was the first musician she contacted about jamming.  Feeling the energy they created was worthy of their own name (and Vanja’s hesitance to use her own name) – the name Little Dove was born, and the duo played their first show at the Viper Room on April 7, 2013.

Little Dove has played venues such as House of Blues, The Kibitz, and San Diego’s Casbah.  They’ve had repeat appearances on San Diego radio such as fm 94.9, KPRI 102.1, radio play in France and the Netherlands, and a month long residency at The Viper Room.

Heather Nation

Heather Nation

“I kinda just want to make something of myself,” Heather says matter-of-factly, with a laugh. “In my opinion, to be respected as a professional comes from really believing in and living what you do, not just being successful.”

Heather describes her first pilgrimage to Coachella almost a decade ago, as well as rattling off a roster of favorite vocalists (with much diversity): from Patsy Cline to Mariah Carey, Jeff Buckley to Jeff Tweedy. Obviously her inspiration spans genres – but the indie music scene of our era, along with the festival circuit, inspired her to fine-tune her sound and make it her own. 

In fact, the idea of “warping a genre” is thematic for Heather. Creating an iteration on a genre is extremely important in both becoming distinct and unique as well as being true to oneself. This could almost be viewed as a devotion to what truly inspires the artist: both in the music they love and the world they live in. “Love is ultimately what inspires me – the existence, and sometimes absence of love (and heartbreak) is something everyone can identify with.”
