The Diamond Light, Tall Tales and the Silver Lining, Fort King

The Diamond Light

Los Angeles based rock 'n' soul band The Diamond Light formed over long summers and weekly blues jams back in rural New Hampshire. Singer and guitarist Griffin Young began writing songs with drummer Ian Ochs almost ten years ago in Ian's father's band. Playing together in bars with their parents throughout high school, they eventually paired up with guitarist/vocalist Brian Stanley to form the final incarnation of The Diamond Light. In 2007, the band began to make their way West, with all of the members eventually landing in Southern California.

After many great TV placements and a celebrated self-titled full length album in 2013, The Diamond Light sold out their November residency at Los Angeles' storied venue, The Satellite. Riding a wave of recent success in their new home town, their newest EP "Vicious Visions" is due out in March 2015.

Tall Tales and the Silver Lining

Tall Tales and the Silver Lining is a Los Angeles-based band led by songwriter Trevor Beld Jimenez. Beld Jimenez grew up on the sounds of ‘70s AM radio, along with L.A. classics like Jackson Browne, Court and Spark-era Joni Mitchell, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, and The Byrds. His music incorporates all of that – classic songwriting, great playing, simple, hook-heavy arrangements and thoughtful production – but updates the sound for today. It’s straightforward, heartfelt rock & roll, ten songs of love and loss, ocean-scented breezes and the hum of the open road beneath your wheels. West Coast dates throughout the winter and full US tour this spring.

Fort King, nom de guerre for Ryan Fuller, a songsmith who grew up in Ocala, FL and resides in Los Angeles. Steeped in old folk traditions and country blues like Mississippi John Hurt, his outsider view of LA life made him something of a citified crooner of New Weird Americana. "Black Palms" is a dirge of nascent teen suicide in a country setting. "Osceola" highlights the psychology of the Seminole Indian warrior, much as Neil Young chronicled new world holocausts in his "Cortez, the Killer." Heartbreak is also a theme and Ryan's fingerpicking and soft delivery have invited comparison to Elliott Smith.
