Kath Bloom
Kath Bloom
For fans of the song and how to feel it. Kath Bloom (USA) is some kind of legend. She comes from a special place where country, blues and folk are made beautifully translucent and emotive. She has a special gift – her voice is delicate and tender, yet retains that raw emotion and hard worn truths that allows each sung word to be felt.

The more you hear of Kath Bloom, the more you notice it’s not just the arresting voice, but the power of the songwriting. “Beautiful” is the typical response—the kind of beauty that comes from truth, musical and the deeply lyrical. There are no good comparisons, but if you like the deep well of Emmylou Harris, the more poignant lyrics of Lou Reed, the joy of Maher Shalal Hash Baz or even Joni Mitchell, you're kinda in the right zone. In reality, she’s simply Kath Bloom: horse whisperer, vocalist, mum, songwriter and a beautiful person.

Her albums recorded with Loren Mazzacane Connors in the 70′s/80′s are rare things, full of songs that float and melt into the ether. Impossibly beautiful and hard to find on LP, but check the reissues from a few years ago . In the 90′s Kath’s music was famously featured in Richard Linklater’s film Before Sunrise. Since then she has been busy writing and recording to great acclaim. Two new albums in the last few years and she and her songs where also honoured on a tribute album featuring Bill Callahan, Scout Niblett and Mark Kozelek.

Jim Reynolds Band
Jim Reynolds is a songwriter and band leader of 'The Jim Reynolds Band', based in Los Angeles, California. Jim finds inspiration from a wide range of artists, including (but my no means limited to) Neil Young, Michael Jackson, Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder, Tom Waits, Radiohead, LCD Soundsystem, a Tribe Called Quest, Blackstreet, Cat Power, Mayer Hawthorne and Beirut...to name a few. Jim strives to create music that encourages those within earshot to sing along, and dance a little; when the beat is right. The JRB has released three albums “De los Muertos” (4.20.2013), “La Rana” (12.6.2013) and “Perfect for Listening” (7.1.2106). “Glitter Bomb” is scheduled for release on July 22, 2018. The first single, “Firefly” will be released May 22nd. All Jim’s recordings have been released on Vow Records. Jim has been on the road a lot over the years both nationally and internationally and continues to travel and perform his music today. He has toured internationally to The UK, Spain, Canada and Mexico. In the US, he's toured the coasts and the big ones in the middle: Los Angeles, New York, Portland, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington DC and lots of other stops big and little in between. He has also had his music featured in film and television. Most notably: 'Sons of Anarchy,' 'Franklin and Bash' and the film 'Embrace of the Vampire'. Lately, Jim's Los Angeles lineup has been a true power trio, featuring on Drums and Leif Banting on bass guitar. Jim likes to sing most of all. When in Mexico or at Burning Man, Jim's lineup includes Mojowoman, and their nickname is “Discoballs Deep: the disco-funk explosion.” Jim continues to travel, record, film and perform his music today.
