Rvby My Dear
Rvby My Dear
RVBY MY DEAR is the project of Australian singer/songwriter Gabbi Coenen. Described as “atmospheric avant-pop” comparable to the likes of Portishead, Daughter and London Grammar, the band has been featured in The Deli Magazine, The AU Review and Impose. Their debut album is due for release in Fall 2017.
London Plane
By juxtaposing the melodic blitz of the Ronnettes with dark-wave, melancholic pathos of predecessors such as Echo and the Bunnymen, and with splashes of Morricone's cinematic modern operas, London Plane (named from the tough, resilient yet ghostly, pale New York City street tree) are helping to define the landscape of New York's underground indie-rock music scene. Firmly rooted in the moment, this band gives no inward looks; the songs are quick, dancey, and tear through arrangements (they "get on with it" as described in RockNerd UK) from low to loud, quiet to quick.
Elk City
Elk City
Elk City mixes taut pop, spacey psychedelia, and gorgeous 70’s-style soft rock, serving up Renee LoBue’s heart-on-sleeve emotions with effortless fanfare.

Since their debut in 2000, LoBue’s voice and unique songwriting have been the heart of Elk City’s music. LoBue’s melodies are artful explorations of inconvenient, incongruous expression. Her lyrics submerge into unexpected depths of the surreal.

Instrumentally, guitarist Sean Eden (Luna) and keyboardist Carl Baggaley engage in concordant conversation. Eden’s shimmering lead-lines juxtaposed by bassist, Martin Olson’s counter melodies. Producer Ray Ketchem’s drumming is minimal and infectious.
Ashni
Sunder Ashni is a Brooklyn Born being dedicated to love, truth and communion. Blessed with countless lessons through nature, meditation, song, sacred movement and silence. Sunder is invested in bridging the artistic and spiritual processes/practices as a path to healing.
