21 Apr 2021 1 minute read 0 comments The Sad King Billy

It's a magical moment when an artist catches you off-guard. When you hear their work for the first time and something in you activates. Maybe it's a chill, maybe it's inspiration, or maybe it's just a reminder that you're a human surrounded by other...

Songs I Love: S.O.S (Sawed Off Shotgun) - The Glorious Sons

13 Apr 2021 1 minute read 0 comments The Sad King Billy

One of my favorite things about The Glorious Sons is how they manage to both sound modern, and still somehow like a throwback to good old fashioned Rock n Roll. Hailing from the mystical land of Ontario Canada, the band has had a notable career since...

GJART was created in 2015. In reality it has been over 30 years in the making. As a huge fan of electronic music since the early 80s (Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, The Human League, Soft Cell ), I always wanted to play and write music but for various...

Punk lovers tune in. Hailing from Indiana, Harley Poe has been described as "horror folk" and its truly the most apt description there is of their style; with many of their songs revolving around the macabre and the uncomfortably grimy aspects of exi...

Songs I Love: How Long- Palehound

2 Apr 2021 1 minute read 0 comments The Sad King Billy

Today, we started the day with an in venue rehearsal, both for the musicians to play in the space and also for the TV and audio calibration as well. Audio recordings are part and parcel of our lives, but the TV and visual parts were a bit novel. Sur...

IMG_20210322_100522.jpg Its really strange to be back at work in a large scale ensemble again. It has been a year since the big wave of concert cancellations began rolling and things haven't really picked up since then. And yet here we are at the beg...
