Joshua & The Holy Rollers
Joshua & The Holy Rollers
A bluesy folk-rock band based Los Angeles, discovered in a desert somewhere.
Paige Calico
Paige Calico
magine if Brian Wilson and Joni Mitchell wrote and recorded together. The resulting music might sound a lot like Paige Calico, lyrically elegant songs with sweet melodics and rich, lush harmonies. Here on her first solo collection after time with the duo The Dwells, comes an EP of six delicately crafted songs, all rendered with resplendent Paige-sung harmonies. Like Joni and Brian and few others, Paige excels at singing layers of vocals, evoking that spirit of peace and harmony, a timelessly intimate sound that forever sings of Laurel Canyon. Her music is both reminiscent of the past but also bravely new, creating a poignant hybrid of mystic alternative Americana.

In addition to singing all the lead and harmony vocals, Paige plays acoustic guitar. Geyer covers electric guitars and bass, with Mike Brown & Burleigh McDowell on drums, Dylan Zmed on mandolin, and Brad Snow on keyboards. The beautiful photography throughout is by the legendary Henry Diltz. The album was engineered by Geyer, mixed by Mario Borgatta, and mastered by Gentry Studer.
Balto
"Balto sound like the kind of band you’d want playing in the background as you cruise down the highway with a road soda clutched in your hand." - What Youth

Balto plays unbridled American Rock and Roll - steeped in both the mythology of the great folk storytellers and the legendary Motown groovers. Biting cynicism, instant classics, rip-your-heart-out live energy, a willingness to swagger, shred hard, and live behind the beat. Seattle-based curators Artist Home describe last year’s LP Strangers as “a tangle of beautiful, messy emotions, wrapped up in a sound that’s warmly familiar yet brimming with soul and tiny details that are touched by magic.” Now living in Los Angeles, the band has begun releasing a series of singles off of 2019's forthcoming record and are playing regional dates all over California.
