more on the artists:

DANNY BLACK:

Danny Black is an alias for Dan Schwartz, a member of the Philadelphia folk trio Good Old War. Black, who has spent the past several years on the road with Good Old War and is an outdoor enthusiast, wanted to create an album to inspire listeners to go out and create their own adventures. Recorded last winter in a sleepy NJ beach town, Adventure Soundtrack, weaves together a patchwork of acoustic, electric, and 12-string guitar, embracing folk, progressive, rock and blues. Inspired by a longtime passion for six-string virtuosos such as Leo Kottke, Tommy Emmanuel, and Robert Fripp of King Crimson, the album utilizes the guitar to conjure evocative imagery as expansive as the scenery Blackloves to explore.

MEL WASHINGTON:

As a founding member of the southern rock outfit, All Get Out, Mel Washington is now on his own making soulful southern music. In his late 20s, he delivers songs that cut to the core of the human existence. His forthcoming full length, “Houses”, features soulful melodies and harmonies, mixed with southern grit and beauty.

THE WEALTHY WEST:

Brandon Kinder may not be a household name but there’s a good chance you’ve heard his songs or his voice somewhere over the past few years. As frontman for Austin’s anthemic rock group The Rocketboys, as a solo singer under his own name and via his Wealthy West moniker, Kinder’s music has been used in an enormous array of TV shows, indie movies and commercials.

2011’s “The Wealthy West: Volume One” was a masterpiece of songwriting. Simple, thoughtful and unpretentious, the 5 songs spoke delicately of love, a topic that Kinder’s day-job band rarely does. Now returning with a full-length record, “Long Play”, The Wealthy West charts both paths equally, with a far more detailed map.

There’s a common thread in the songs. Kinder, who grew up in Memphis and spent most of his musical life in
Abil
ene and Austin, lets his fancy fly free and sets off on a grand journey. Themes of traveling, searching and seeking tie many of the songs together. The Wealthy West becomes a character earnestly looking for something that he knows he might never find…or has already found and has to convince himself of that.
