BANDCAMP

After years of grinding as a sideman in the Finnish music scene, Bobby Oroza has stepped up to make his voice heard. Always with an air of crude romanticism, Bobby pushes towards an expression transcending the borders of soul and rock balladry. His dark and intimate debut single ”This Love” didn’t take long to reach the ears and hearts of a worldwide soul music community and is already a proper classic amongst the lowrider and soul collector scenes.

Bobby was born in Helsinki, Finland into a family of musicians and artists. During frequent family parties Bobby ́s Bolivian grandfather would pick up a guitar and sing Latin canciones and Cuban classics. Bobby ́s mother is a singer and his father a gypsy-style jazz guitarist. All his siblings work in show business and music. As a kid, Bobby was lucky to grow up surrounded by his parents’ record collection which included early jazz and blues, Motown hits, gospel ensembles, and doo-wop groups like The Drifters and The Clovers. The Soul records were balanced out by Brazilian ones, African ones, his mother’s collection of North and South American folk songs, and Nuyorican Salsa albums. All of these influences show up in Bobby’s music.

Bobby started working professionally as a musician in his early teens. His main instruments are guitar and percussion. Before finishing high school Bobby decided he needed to experience the rhythmic source that had inspired him the most, and travelled to Santiago, Cuba. There he studied percussion and singing intensively for months. Since his return he’s been producing, recording and performing music to make a living for his family. Teaming up with the Timmion Records house band Cold Diamond & Mink, led by Jukka Sarapää, Sami Kantelinen, and guitarist/composer Seppo Salmi, he has a tight quartet of musicians to support his vision. With his instant classic, debut album “This Love” Oroza has shared his strange and unique shade of Soul with the world, creating a cult-like following for his sound from Finland to sunny Southern California and beyond.

SPOTIFY

Fronted by singer/bassist Shannon Wise and guitarist/producer Max Shrager, The Shacks’ cinematic songs are the soundtrack to a mysterious alternate reality.

Fueled by Wise’s intimate, unmistakable vocals and the electricity the band generates, The Shacks made an early mark with their self-titled EP and debut full length album Haze, garnering the attention of Billboard, Pitchfork, NPR, KCRW, KEXP and more. The band was named an NPR Slingshot artist, World Café called their music “the early work of a force to be reckoned with” and Vice i-D raved that they “bring a fresh sensibility to classic American sounds.” The buzz continued as the band’s hypnotic cover of Ray Davies’ “This Strange Effect” soundtracked a worldwide iPhone commercial. The Shacks signature sound and blending of genres has gained them a worldwide fan base. The group has toured internationally with artists such as Khruangbin, Lee Fields & The Expressions and Chicano Batman.

Their debut record, Haze, released on Big Crown Records and produced by Shrager and Leon Michels of El Michels Affair feels more like a whispered late-night secret than a young band’s debut. Much like a dream, the songs merge the familiar and the unfamiliar, constructing their own psychedelic reality full of beauty and yearning.
