I am a singer/songwriter that makes his home in Connecticut. I have loved music all my life. It is and has always been the source of great pleasure.I have always viewed music as a passion and not just a hobby. When I write and record a song Im hoping that I am connecting to the listener on some level. If someone is moved by one of my songs then I feel as though I have succeeded.. The biggest influences musically for me have been The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel and Sting.
Although I write and record my own songs, I still love to do some covers.
Young Man is Colin Caulfield from Chicago.
Regarding his music, “It’s enough to make you stop and say, “What is that?” It
being the gorgeous melodies and lean, spellbound guitar lines of Colin
Caulfield, an English/French lit major who’s about to change what it means to
be a shape-shifting singer-songwriter in the YouTube age.
Just ask Bradford Cox. He knows. Why, just a year ago, the Deerhunter frontman
stumbled upon Caulfield’s organ-grinding rendition of “Rainwater Cassette
Exchange” and said it’s “fantastically superior to the original. It actually
sent shivers up my spine, especially during the second verse.”
Believe it or not, that chilling cover was just a warmup session. As killer as
he is at capturing the very essence of everything from Animal Collective to
Ariel Pink, Caulfied’s true talent is in telling his own Young Man stories. The
first chapter of which goes by the name Boy, a deceivingly-simple suite of
songs about wanting to grow up without having the slightest idea of what ‘being
a man’ actually means.
Now that’s a reason to hit rewind, from the tone-setting tenderness and
psych-infused harmonies of “Five” to the restless rhythms (Caulfield was a
drummer well before he became a singer/guitarist) and room-engulfing intimacy
of “Up So Fast.” Both of which feature some of the most hopeful/haunting
choruses you’ll hear all year.
And that’s just the beginning, of course. Since Young Man was conceived as a
concept project about the passing of time, love, and loss, Caulfield already
has two loosely- linked LPs on tap—a faceless collection of fragile characters
that could be any one of us, really.
James Harker was raised in Sheffield,
England, and first began cultivating his musical interests participating in his
school concert band and big band playing bass. Meanwhile, he took home vinyls
of Peter Gabriel, early Elton John, Robert Fripp, Talking Heads and Paul Simon,
and began producing his own home-made albums on the side. Within time, he began
showcasing his songs on the school stage, performing under-rehearsed rock
numbers in front of bewildered peers and teachers.
Since graduating from the University of
York, where he'd been involved in the university’s drama and music scenes,
(including stripping completely naked in front of nearly 2,000 people in the
university's production of 'The Full Monty' musical), James has worked as
almost everything: piano player in an Italian restaurant (since shut down for
being the least hygienic joint in town), gin seller, caterer to the Royal
Family, wine seller, and medical administrator - all while trying to pursue a
In 2012 James released his debut album,
“The Red Room”, to positive reviews. He has also composed music for films,
including a new feature documentary on human suspension, 'On Tender Hooks', and
has acted in a number of shows, including an hour-long comic monologue on the
“off-West End stage”, and a comedy-horror short film.
In Oct 2013, James released his EP
“Anecdote”, and teamed up with producer Vast to form electronic-pop-orchestral
duo Vast & Harker.
Currently, James is getting ready to
release his second album “The Ebb and Flow” scheduled for release in August
2015. The first single from that album “Fisher King” was released on July 3rd,
In a music scene
where cookie cutter performers claim to be unique, Dark Beauty combines
elements of dance, rock, opera, theater and world music into a true
one-of-a-kind experience. The band’s classically influenced gothic alternative
progressive rock gives fans a way to stretch their ears and experience styles
and mixtures of music that they’ve never heard before.
Lead Vocalist and Songwriter Liz Tapia began this journey back in 2009 when she
wrote and recorded the first song from the project “Save Yourself.” The song
mixed a Middle Eastern beat with Santana-esque guitars, gothic lyrics and a
soaring melody, beseeching a lover to turn away before it was too late. The
song became instantly popular with fans of many musical styles, leading her to
pursue the project and its main character on a grander scale.
Dark Beauty has since become a concept album depicting the tragic tale of the
Dark Angel, and her tragic tale fall from grace. Banished from heaven she is
pulled down from grace above, falling deep into the woods of the dark primeval
forest. With a broken wing she now rules an old abandoned castle, containing
secret passages, hidden staircases, and ruined sections.
Liz is a lyric coloratura soprano, whose smooth, warm, versatile voice adds
infinite textures to the epic music she writes and performs. Her background in
acting, film and musical theater all affect the musical scope and cinematic
feel of her work. As complex as the music is, Liz knew the band would require
the highest level of musicians possible to fulfill the full potential of her
Bryan Zeigler was the first member to join the Dark Beauty team as lead
guitarist and co-writer. His years of experience with a multitude of progressive
rock bands, as well as knowledge of the music business and arrangement skills
were a perfect match. Soon after came the musical talents and versatility of
master Drummer/Percussionist Dan Granda, who added a perfect combination of
strength and finesse needed to stylize the epic story.
Gary Perkinson joined on bass, lending his classical skills, super easy going
personality and wonderful musicianship, to anchor the band with Dan.
Dark Beauty is currently getting airplay by several stations hitting high marks
on all charts and growing rapidly. The album is being engineered and produced
by Artie Rodriguez, and the first album is scheduled to be released by Spring

combines folk, spaghetti western, and classic country into a sound distinctly
their own. Their live performances are coupled with period movie projections,
resulting in a powerful presentation of sights and sounds. Described as haunted
saloon music, Haun's Mill has found a home in Austin's quirky environment since
moving there in late 2010. Since their relocation, the five piece band holds
residency at the swanky 1920's themed East Side Showroom and has played local
clubs and festivals including Swan Dive, Continental Club, Art Outside, Pecan
Street Festival, Parish, Club DeVille and Momo's.
bandleaders Eliza Wren (Austin's own revered songbird) and Nord Anderson (Salt
Lake City) joined forces after meeting at college in 2005. Initially a duo,
their first gig was opening for a sold out Monkey Grinder Halloween Bash at
Velour in Provo, UT. The great reception prompted expansion to a full
band with Mike Crandall, B.B. Melanson and Anthony Phan (double bass, drums and
trumpet) and their first self titled album, released in January 2010.
After Eliza and Nord moved to Austin, they added current members Keith Palumbo
(drums), and Courtney Jackson (double bass). The band completed their
second album “Away” at Public Hi-Fi Studio in Austin, in the Spring of 2012.
Black Cherry are a British/French
electro pop band. The band was formed in London in 2007 by singer/songwriter
Megane Quashie, drummer/producer Guilhem Fraisse and guitarist Robert Moore.
After performing at Glastonbury 2008 on “The Other Stage” as well as many other
festivals that year, Black Cherry release their first EP 'This is Control' in
the beginning of 2009 and embarked on an American Tour. After playing a number
of festivals including Hungary's Balaton Sounds the band lost guitarist Robert
Moore after he died. The band's second EP "The Preface" was dedicated
to his memory. After playing at Glastonbury Festival again in 2010 festival
organiser Michael Eavis called them "The best looking band at the
festival". In 2011 the played at South by Southwest Festival and toured
America. In Summer the band announced the release of their double A-Side
"One Another"/"Lost in the System" on August 29th to be

keyboardist Michael Chaves who, after recording Mayer's album Heavier Things,
Fraser enlisted to play on her album and future concerts.
In 2005, prior to writing and
preparing her follow-up album, Fraser took a trip to Africa to immerse herself
in Rwanda before visiting her sponsor children in Tanzania, as she is an advocate
for child sponsorship. In this trip, she was so moved that she wrote the song Albertine
about a young child (named Albertine), whom she met while in Rwanda. It was
later decided to make this song the album's title track.
For the second album, Fraser decided
to enlist a new band, primarily constructed from American musicians who'd
worked with an array of notable artists, both live and recorded. In 2006,
Fraser and the band went into the studio in Los Angeles to record the album.
Later Fraser allowed her fans to listen to the album's first single Deciphering
Me via her MySpace page. The single was later released initially to radio

In its review of Flags, Glide
Magazine said: "Brooke Fraser's third release, Flags, is a
wonder. From the stunning lyrical imagery throughout to the impressive guest
vocalists who join her (Cary Brothers, Jon Foreman and Aqualung among them),
from Fraser’s ethereal and breathy performances to the wide-ranging
soundscapes, this record is drenched in beauty and stands as one of the more
remarkable achievements of 2010."

Stars for Free" event in Zurich alongside Lenny Kravitz and Snow Patrol.
journey began at the age of 10 as a member of “The Young Canadians of The
Calgary Stampede”. He received extensive vocal, dance, and performance
training, while performing for millions of people throughout his tenure with
In high school he formed the boy band “Off Limitz”. It was then that Adam
discovered writing and producing music. Adam took the role of lead singer,
writer, and choreographer in the band. Off Limitz achieved radio play with
their song “Forgot About You” (written by Adam) on various Canadian stations,
including TOP-40 station POWER 107.3 in Calgary. They won 2 consecutive “8
o’clock Showdown” segments on POWER 107, leading to the highest differential ever
recorded on that station with a staggering 98% of listener votes.
In 2001, Off Limitz recorded a single with 15-time Grammy Award winner David
Foster. The band was flown to Los Angeles and recorded at Capitol Records. They
also spent time with David at his home studio in Malibu. It was the most
fulfilling and encouraging musical experience of Adam’s young music career.
In 2002, Off Limitz signed a management deal with a firm in New York. They
embarked on a 2 month tour of the United States, performing at venues such as
Disney World, Busch Gardens and Sea World. It wasn’t until a sudden change of
climate in the pop music industry that Off Limitz decided to take what would
inevitably be a permanent hiatus. Adam continues to be great friends with his
former band mates to this day.
In 2003, Adam decided to take on a new challenge: to produce and record music
for others. He took an interest in the creation, arrangement, recording, and
mixing of music. As a self-taught musician, Adam has spent the last 7 years
writing and producing in the pop and urban genres for local and international
clients, while continuing to lend his vocal abilities to many projects along
This brings us to 2011, the newest chapter in Adam’s musical journey. With a
return to writing, recording and performing, it is his immediate goal to
further develop his music as a solo recording artist. Reality says that only a
small portion of the world knows who he is now, but with more and more people
gravitating towards his music, that is soon to be changed! In 2011, Adam began
recording and posting videos to his YouTube channel, showcasing his vocal
abilities, guitar prowess, and production skills. Starting out as an
experiment, the immediate global response has been incredibly positive! His
YouTube videos have already accumulated over 1.3 MILLION views! Attracting
viewers from Vietnam to Australia, the United States to Sweden, there is a
growing awareness of who Adam Stanton is!
