A Walk & Talk With Kendy

It's that time of year when musicians and artists come together for another great Melodica Festival. We talked to the always vivacious Kendy Gable about why she brought the fest to NYC and why you should come check it out next weekend.

Bird Courage - "Home" [Video]

It was a beautiful night at Local Project last Saturday. We raised money for Will Stratton and got to listen to some great music, including this tune from Bird Courage called "Home."

Elliot Rayman - "Never Again Will I Travel"

Elliot Rayman has a new setup, complete with electric guitar and pedals. I was stoked when he invited me into his practice space to shoot some of his new material.

Get Your Plume Giant Fix For The Day!

I don't like going a day without hearing at least a little Plume Giant, and a video is even better! If you're the same, here's your PG fix for the day: a lovely ditty called "Out to Sea."

Anthony da Costa - "When You Come To Me"

While Anthony takes a short break from music to rest his hands (I guess playing a million shows a year from the age of 15 to 21 takes its toll), you can enjoy this video from our show at Jalopy last Friday!

Swan Sessions: Plume Giant Sings "Tuesday"

One of our favorite trios, Plume Giant, came by the loft to play a couple tunes. Here is the first one, called "Tuesday." It clocks in at just over 2 minutes, which is perfect for those of you with short attention spans ;-)
