Van William

Singer-songwriter Van Pierszalowski has spent his post-Port O’Brien years building his ’90s-channeling rock outfit WATERS into one of the most fun and celebratory rock bands around, hitting his stride with last year’s sophomore album “What’s Real.” But having gone where his songwriting muse pulled him, Pierszalowski found that his new batch of songs weren’t exactly WATERS’ thing. So meet Van William. - Buzz Bands LA

Christian Lee Hutson

Whoever the gallantly self-defeating 24-year-old singer/songwriter is, he's an amalgamation of a long line of Americana tradition, a packed handful of unpleasant days, and his own past musical endeavors, including 2012's EP Will Never Break Up, and his debut LP, The Hell With It.

Now, after a song-a-month release over the course of 2014 comes Hutson's second album Yeah Okay, I Know, a record championed by Americana UK's James McCurry as "...Startlingly good. Like 'year's end list' good." Yeah Okay, I Know captures twelve songs from the rapidly-evolving King of Bummercore, with all his youthful regrets, laments, and apathy worn unabashedly on his sleeve.

Hutson's search for self spills from his records onto the road in a relentless touring schedule across the States and throughout Europe, where the prolific songster's perpetually unveiling new tunes and discovering new ways to take shots at himself. Like Sean Moeller says in Paste Magazine, "He will change you. Go see him tonight."

Allie Crow Buckley

Allie Crow Buckley is a coastal-country artist from California. Her music is of the high-lonesome, Pacific variety - a product of her lifelong love of sounds she heard in her roving family’s many homes. Born in Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco in ’93, the Pacific Ocean has always been her backyard. Her twenty-four years have been spent in Mendocino, New Zealand, Venice Beach, and Malibu, the strange beach town on the edge of Los Angeles where she wrote the songs you hear today.

Her songs are written on the autoharp, an instrument she discovered not out of admiration for June Carter but at the recommendation of the Scottish comedian Billy Connolly, reinforcing the bond between the Celtic melancholia at the heart of country music that has travelled so far West it’s now undeniably it’s own thing.

Her aim is to build off her influences; primarily Little Feat, Lucinda Williams, and Townes van Zandt, and fuse those with what she describes as her own “inherently strange approach” to melody and story. Her raw early recordings reached producer Sean O’Brian, and together they pursued a more fleshed-out, full band sound. She and her group are currently performing in and around Los Angeles between recording sessions of her debut album.Allie Crow Buckley is a coastal-country artist from California.
