The Tin Drums
Lap-steel guitarist Anna Beth Carson and roots-rocker Jason Diaz have come together to produce a unique blend of early Stax/Volt Soul and Americana music. Much akin to their namesake, the Tin Drums' songs tell a story of emotional triumph and self-discovery, albeit a musical one. It is easy to let the backdrop of lap-steel guitar and lush harmonies wash over you. However, under closer scrutiny, the lyrics speak a truth stranger than fiction; it is understood by anyone who has ever loved and lost and polished off a bottle of Jack to wash it all down.
"All the Way Down" is the pair's first, self-produced single off of their freshman EP, due out September of 2012. It is the beginning chapter of a long musical partnership influenced by Fleetwood Mac, Sly & the Family Stone, and Ryan Adams & the Cardinals. Now seasoned veterans of LA's live-venue circuit, Anna and Jason are fortunate to be backed by some of the best musicians in town, all of whom have the chops to prove it. The Tin Drums are playing throughout LA in prep for a fall tour on their forthcoming release. Catch them live locally before the room hits capacity.
Hailing from Miami Beach, FL, 24 Year Old Rachel Goodrich has been playing music and writing songs since age 12.
She explores a variety of sounds,playing everything from the guitar to the ukulele, piano, kazoo, banjo, and autoharp.
Creating this unique and exciting style, Rachel draws on some of her influences which include Joni Mitchell, The Grateful Dead, Tiny Tim, Dr. Seuss, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Bob Dylan & The Band, and so many more.
With an eclectic live show featuring a growing collection of band members and toys, Rachel has carved out her own genre she calls “shake-a-billy.”
Honeybear croons tales of love, lust, and murder with his 6-string ukulele, electronics, and guitar. He has been described as having a “penchant for genre-hopping, alternating between fragile folk songs that he played on his ukulele and more experimental sounds that were more Jandek than Beck”, and as being "directly tied to an old time history of song, yet simultaneously new and unique."
“Honeybear possessed a sound unlike anything else I heard at folk fest. Honeybear could soothe even the most ferocious beast to sleep with his beautifully eerie melodies. I cannot express how strongly I feel that everyone listen to his album”
"...a song by Honeybear, the name used by tonight's ukulele handler, which is a hushed affair until around two thirds of the way through when an enormous voice erupts from deep within him."
"Calgary’s absurdly fresh-faced Honeybear follows, one young Canadian adeptly and drolly delivering a succession of self-accompanied murder ballads, neatly restraining his obviously resonant voice until the crucial climax of each song."
“Honeybear is my best surprise of the fest”
