BEN LANG Releases His Debut Solo Release MODERN MAN EP with a Livestreamed VIRTUAL RELEASE SHOW

Click here to listen!

For Immediate Release – San Francisco, CABEN LANG is a singer-songwriter from San Rafael, CA. His debut solo release MODERN MAN EP offers six finely crafted alternative-acoustic tracks written and performed entirely by BEN LANG, with expressive lyrics and a slight country feel akin to artists as varied as Violent Femmes, Paul Simon, or Willie Nelson. MODERN MAN EP is made available online everywhere music is streamed and sold on November 27, Black Friday 2020. There will also be a MODERN MAN EP VIRTUAL RELEASE SHOW broadcast online to coincide with the release the same day, giving fans the chance to see a live performance of each song.

After playing in bands for several years and putting out a few different albums, BEN LANG branched out on his own as a solo performer in 2017 and began playing an assortment of mellow covers and originals at local restaurants, weddings, parties, and open mics. As he crafted more original material, he began to make plans for MODERN MAN EP, his first solo release. MODERN MAN EP was then recorded, mixed, and mastered by his good friend Matt Cope in his home studio between 2018 and 2020.

To coincide with the release, BEN LANG partnered with Gabriel Lamb and Digital Lamb Productions to produce a MODERN MAN EP VIRTUAL RELEASE SHOW. The concert will broadcast online on Black Friday 2020 at 5:30 PM PST, giving fans the chance to kick back and relax that evening with some Thanksgiving leftovers while enjoying a live BEN LANG performance of each new MODERN MAN EP song.

Originally from the southeast Texas town of Port Arthur, BEN LANG was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he still hangs his hat with his big dog Boone by his side. Like many, he fell in love with music as a teenager, and began learning everything he could about bass and guitar with dreams of rock stardom in his head every night. Together with Paggi (aka Dan Paggi), also a notable Pacific Northwest artist, BEN LANG was a founding member of the San Francisco cult classic band Biv and the Mnemonics (aka Roy G Biv & The Mnemonic Devices), whose albums The Blue Orange (2009) and The Pace (2013) were released to critical acclaim and still resonate today. Together they also founded the independent label Moo Moo Records, and continue to release and market new projects partnered with Independent Distribution Collective (IDC).

As a solo artist, BEN LANG performs every Friday at the Le Chalet Basque restaurant in San Rafael, or at the occasional show, party, wedding, or open mic around town. He also plays bass with the Bay Area’s best rockers Secret Lives (aka The Gene Immens Project), whose solid mix of hard-rocking originals and crowd-pleasing covers brings an electric charge to every show. Throughout the years BEN LANG has performed in other bands including Azalea Drive, Moblad, and The Devil’s Chord.

MODERN MAN EP is available online on November 27, Black Friday 2020, everywhere music is streamed and sold.

THE WALK-A-BOUT Reaches #3 on the Roots Music Radio Charts!

Click here to listen!

𝐔𝐍𝐏𝐑𝐄𝐂𝐄𝐃𝐄𝐍𝐓𝐄𝐃 𝐂𝐇𝐀𝐑𝐓 𝐏𝐄𝐑𝐅𝐎𝐑𝐌𝐀𝐍𝐂𝐄!

20/20 made it up to #3 On the Roots Music Report Alt-Rock chart

and #16 on the Rock chart!

Congratulations to Independent Distribution Collective band The Walk-A-Bout for charting #3 on the RMR Alternative Rock charts and #13 on the RMR Rock charts! Nice to see their album still getting great exposure and attention for one of the best albums of 2020.

Aussie-American alternative rock quintet THE WALK-A-BOUT hail from the artistic East End of Long Island, New York. On June 5th, 2020 THE WALK-A-BOUT released their full-length LP 20/20 worldwide in stores and online. Produced by Andrew Michael Bertrand and mastered by Roger Lian20/20 is an incredibly diverse record that explores many genres, expanding the scope of band’s classic sound. There is something on the album for everyone. Whether it’s alternative rock, world music, funk, or the influence of prog rock, THE WALK-A-BOUT’s music is visceral, emotional, fun and socially conscious.

THE WALK-A-BOUT began writing the material for 20/20 in March of 2019, right at the time when the band began to achieve massive radio success with their album THINGS ARE LOOKING UP, which consistently landed in Top 20 charts alongside such artists as Paul McCartney, Jeff Tweedy, Mumford & Sons and Death Cab for Cutie. The album reached #4 on Roots Music Radio Report, while the singles “Consequences,” “By My Side,” and “That’s Just The Way It Goes” ranked simultaneously in the Top 5 of the alternative rock singles chart. The album was also ranked #24 on Roots Music Radio Report’s “Best of 2019” chart. The video for “That’s Just The Way It Goes” had an online premiere hosted by Skope Entertainment and continuous play on over 75 broadcast outlets throughout the summer and early fall of 2018. THE WALK-A-BOUT also released a limited edition 180-Gram Red Splatter Vinyl of THINGS ARE LOOKING UP available exclusively through their website.

Band members Darren “Sully” SullivanKevin AndersonDrew Bertrand, and Dave Christian were joined by bass player Keenan Zach for the writing and recording of 20/20, and their collective vision has allowed THE WALK-A-BOUT to explore the outer reaches of music, soul and spirit. This dynamic new collection maintains the band’s depth and introspection, delivering a deep and entertaining album with pop appeal. 20/20 was recorded on 14 reels of two inch tape, a recording method that is reflected in the dynamic sound of this extraordinary release, which is destined to be a classic.

After years of composing beautiful compositions, fate brought acoustic guitar virtuoso Kevin Anderson together with Australian singer/songwriter, blues harpist and didgeridoo player Darren “Sully” Sullivan. Sully was the perfect songwriting partner to marry Kevin’s music with lyrical landscapes, and they began working together in the fall of 2015. The lineup moved closer to completion with a chance introduction to drummer and producer Drew Bertrand in December 2015. Drew quickly acknowledged the unique nature of Kevin and Sully’s writing and began sculpting arrangements for every song, carefully crafting the distinct identity of each piece. From there the band has since gathered Dave Christian on guitar and Keenan Zach on bass. The material for 20/20 was written between March and September of 2019. With a master’s degree in music theory, Keenan Zach was an invaluable resource in the studio while crafting the songs, bringing a new layer of thoughtfulness and quality control to the already exceptional songwriting.

Other musicians on the record include Michael Amendola on tenor sax, Mark Rechler on Hammond organ, and special guest vocalist Victoria Faiella. Roger Lian and Drew Bertrand worked closely on the final mixes and masters, the two having an integral and long-term working relationship that spans twenty-one years. The stunning album art and design for 20/20 was done by Drew’s good friend George Panagakos of 525 Media, and it makes the vinyl worth buying for just the artwork alone.

THE WALK-A-BOUT has toured along the East and West Coasts throughout 2018 and 2019. They are currently preparing a world tour in support of their new album release 20/20, and you can check out the lyric video for the first new single “Victory Parade” on their recently re-designed website!

AVAILABLE NOW! – SF Music Scene Fixture EVAN WARDELL Releases His Debut Solo Full-Length Album IN LIKE A LION // OUT LIKE A LIGHT

Click here to listen!

For Immediate Release – San Francisco, CA – An export from the island of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, EVAN WARDELL is a musician, producer, and audio engineer now based in San Francisco. Written, performed, produced, recorded, and mixed entirely by EVAN WARDELL (he even created the cover art), the new album IN LIKE A LION // OUT LIKE A LIGHT is a hook-laden indie rock masterpiece that illustrates the pain of addiction, heartbreak, and the all too common struggle just to get out of bed in the morning. Made available online everywhere music is streamed and sold on October 30, 2020, IN LIKE A LION // OUT LIKE A LIGHT is the debut solo full-length album from EVAN WARDELL.

Click here to read a great track-by-track review of the album at MaximumVolumeMusic.com!

EVAN WARDELL moved to San Francisco in 2009 to study audio engineering and immerse himself in city life. Since then he has gone from recording in his bedroom to becoming the musical manager at Pianofight (the coolest indie venue in San Francisco), engineering at the historic and renowned Hyde Street Studios, and mixing front of house for audiences of hundreds of people. IN LIKE A LION // OUT LIKE A LIGHT represents at least seven years of songwriting and recording, and as a result offers a chronicle of how EVAN WARDELL has changed over that time as a person, as a songwriter, and even as an audio engineer. Evan says, “To me the album feels like the culmination of everything I’ve ever learned, and the beginning of something bigger and better.”

EVAN WARDELL produced, recorded, and mixed IN LIKE A LION // OUT LIKE A LIGHT entirely by himself, and offers these services to other artists and producers as well. With flexible rates, a home studio, a small demo studio, and access to Hyde Street Studios, he has the rates and environment to fit your recording needs! For more information please contact evan.wardell@gmail.com.

Evan was born and raised on a small rural island off the coast of Massachusetts where he learned how to play music. From the very beginning he wanted to write and record his own material, and everything he does musically has this entrepreneurial drive at its core. He’s played in a few different bands over the years, all the while developing his own voice and engineering abilities. His music blends vitriolic passion with meandering psychedelia into a soup of hook laden indie rock. Throughout 2020 he has been keeping busy, already at work in the studio again and recording some new songs. EVAN WARDELL also does sound design for theater, and as a composer is currently scoring a film, a videogame, and even a dance video.

A fixture in the San Francisco music scene, you can find EVAN WARDELL rocking out with the psychedelic Western outfit The Green Door (new album Wolf In The Fold out now!), or in normal times playing his saddest tunes for his bi-weekly live show Sadurday Happy Hour at Pianofight, the city’s coolest hub for performing artists, where he also acts as Musical Technical Manager. EVAN WARDELL was also a member of the SF band Biv and the Mnemonics, whose album The Pace was released to critical acclaim in 2013.

IN LIKE A LION // OUT LIKE A LIGHT is made available online everywhere music is streamed and sold October 30, 2020.

Multi-Platinum Electronic Rock Band ORGY Unearths Video for Classic TALK SICK Track “SPELLS”

Click here to watch!

To tide fans over during trying times, multi-platinum electronic rock band ORGY has unearthed a never-before-seen video for the track “Spells,” taken from their 2015 Talk Sick EP.

“We just wanted to reach out during these hard times to let you know we haven’t forgotten about all of you,” vocalist/founding member Jay Gordon and his ORGY bandmates say. “These times are especially difficult for everyone, not just the music industry. While it’s probably for the best, it sure does suck not being able to perform live for all of you. We miss it just as much as you probably do, if not more.”

The “Spells” video was directed by Mykyta Samusiev, produced by Anna Tveritina and featuring visual effects, direction and production by Henry Lipatov, and has been on the shelf for some time, as the band has moved on, restructuring and reshaping their always-evolving sound.

“Even though so much has changed regarding the sound of ORGY since then, we figured why not at least release the video on all major platforms and give it away to any of you that want it?” they say. “We hope you enjoy it, and that the video will at least be a distraction from all the drama going on out there!”

ORGY is currently utilizing downtime to work on new material from their individual houses. “We can’t wait to get the new record to you,” the band says. “We are going to bring you something you can sink your teeth (fangs, etc.) into. Stay safe, stay well and most importantly stay optimistic. We will ALL get through these complicated times. Looking forward to seeing all of you again with a new record and tour when they open live music venues, hopefully in 2021!”

ORGY emerged in the Goth music scene in 1998 with their incredible remake of New Order’s “Blue Monday’ The track sold over one million copies and is still selling more than 20 years later. In late 2005, after the release of Punk Statik Paranoia via D1 Music and Associates, their independent DVD TRANS GLOBAL SPECTACLE via D1 Music /DLC Records, and a promotional tour, the band went on a hiatus to work on their side projects. In 2011, after seven years of demand from fans for new music and a tour, founding member Jay Gordon (vocals) decided it was time to kick things back up and begin recording and touring again in support of ORGY’s fans.

After several years of releasing earworm singles to the masses, ORGY has proven their long-lasting potency with a refreshed line-up and sound. The modern incarnation of ORGY has been transformed and sees the band poised to re-establish themselves in the EDM, industrial and hard rock scenes. Make no mistake about it, the ORGY brand is not going away anytime soon.

ORGY is:

Jay Gordon – Vocals

Carlton Bost – Guitar/Vocals

Nic Speck – Bass/Vocals

Creighton Emrick – Guitar/Vocals

Marton Veress – Drums

AVAILABLE NOW! – BONAFIDE BAND and DAMIAN “JR. GONG” MARLEY Release the New Single “START AND STOP”

Click here to listen!

For Immediate Release – Las Vegas, NV – Serving as ambassadors of good vibes and good music, BONAFIDE BAND has taken the world by storm. Located in Las Vegas, NV, by way of Montego Bay, Jamaica, BONAFIDE has hypnotized their fan base with great rhythms infused with sultry base lines and coupled with the smooth and soothing vocals of Jr. Rootz gracing each track. Eager to share their voice in the Conversation about what is going on in the world right now, the BONAFIDE BAND together with DAMIAN “JR. GONG” MARLEY are proud to present the new single “START AND STOP,” made available everywhere music is streamed and sold September 4, 2020.

“The world needs LOVE right now,” says the BONAFIDE BAND, “and we want to be a part of that Conversation with our music. We come from a place where music always means something, so if we just do music with no footprint, it’s a waste of time. And if we just do music to make money, it’s a waste of life. It’s time to put away our selfishness and come together.”

The youngest son of reggae legend Bob Marley, DAMIAN “JR. GONG” MARLEY garnered his own place in music history when he became the first ever reggae artist to win a GRAMMY outside of the reggae category, taking home an award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance for his single “Welcome To Jamrock.” Marley’s latest album Stony Hill won the 2018 GRAMMY Award in the Best Reggae Album category. Additionally, Damian appeared on Saturday Night Live alongside Jay Z to perform their standout track “Bam,” and he is also featured on Ty Dolla $ign’s acclaimed track “So Am I” with Skrillex. Most recently, Damian released the remix and music video for his single “Medication” featuring Stephen Marley, Wiz Khalifa, and Ty Dolla $ign.

Often imitated but never duplicated, BONAFIDE BAND consists of three members including Jr. Rootz (lead vocals/drums), Rickydread MD (keyboards/vocals), and Bass Wayne (bass/vocals). Now based in Las Vegas, these gentlemen hail from Montego Bay, Jamaica, and their loyalty to their home runs deep. The BONAFIDE BAND has given back to their home community in Jamaica through various donations from their Across the Bridge Foundation.

BONAFIDE BAND members have been stellar members of the Las Vegas community, lending their name to several social issues and causes. In 2012, they contributed proceeds of their music sold in Nevada to benefit the Help of Southern Nevada Organization, a non-profit that serves the poor, the homeless, and those in crisis. Congresswoman Alice Costandina “Dina” Titus journeyed to Las Vegas to personally hand a Certificate of Special Congressional Commendation to mark their 19th anniversary in the music business to the reggae band. In 2017, the group was given their own “Bonafide Reggae Day” on April 21.


BONAFIDE BAND and Broadyard Records have teamed up to take over the world by taking reggae music to places it’s never been before. “We’re always looking to do bigger things with our music by reaching out and lending assistance to families in need,” says Jr. Rootz. “Just think what this world be like if we all helped one another reach our potential. That’s what BONAFIDE stands for. If my life’s purpose is just to make me happy, then it’s a wasted life.”
