A native San Diegan and Navy brat, Jenny was raised in a household
with no music. She didn’t start listening to the radio until her late teens, and
didn’t start singing and writing until her twenties. She is a natural-born
storyteller, so she started writing country songs and had her own band.
Recently, however, Jenny teamed up with Southern California punk icon
Jose Cruz of Male Order Brides and Doom Kounty Electric Chair fame.
Dead Queen is an EP of Cruz’ songs, produced by Cruz along with Jenny’s
husband, Chas Ferry, who has worked with David Bowie, Iggy Pop, and
Quincy Jones. In addition to writing and recording music, Jenny is a college
professor teaching English literature.

Ozzy recently cancelled his 2019 tour but has rescheduled for 2020 do to health issues. Mick Jagger is recovering from heart surgery. KISS's final performances are going down less than stellar with Paul's voice in pretty bad shape. Both Ozzy and KISS had called it quits 20 years ago but got lored back out on the road. Why? They surely do not need the money and they have nothing to prove to their fans. So what keeps these bands touring after all these years?

The eclectic life and times of Pittsburgh's hardest working musician, John Vento
27:17

Do your part to keep guitar driven rock ALIVE... join Loudini LIVE! Go to http://LouLombardiMusic.com/InnerCircle to find out how you can be a part of our LIVE online audience and get access to exclusive music and video!

John Vento is often called a chameleon in the Pittsburgh music scene; and, while his critics may use the term as a pejorative, Vento views it as a compliment. He understands that they’re motivated by the frustration of their inability to lock him into a specific musical style. After all, the front man for the high-energy, hard-rockin’ bands, The Businessmen, and the Nied’s Hotel Band, is also known for his introspective, brooding solo recordings.

Rather than a drawback, however, Vento considers such diversity to be among his strengths; and his fans agree. They relish sharing his tumultuous trek toward achieving his artistic vision, which he accomplishes by channeling a blend of eclectic influences through his own, raw emotions.

Helping to engineer the roller coaster ride is a stout core of colaborators, including John Randall Fox, Buddy Hall, Tim Hadley, and Frank Ferraro, along with renowned playwright/lyricist, Amy Hartman. Many members of this crew have been with him for more than a decade; and it’s easy to understand why, as Vento consistently showers them with appreciation and accolades. Though a one-of-a-kind performer, he professes a great distaste for the word, “solo,” insisting that, “Without my collaborators, I would not have accomplished anything.”

That’s no surprise to those who know him, as he truly is a humble, loving, and grateful person, who treasures his family and friends. Certainly, that comes across, loud and clear, in his honest, from-the-heart songs; and that, undoubtedly, is another quality which endears him to his fans. As he puts it, “If just one person is touched in some small way by one of my songs, that’s the greatest reward that I could receive.”

Of course, it’s purely logical that Vento would find a great following in this town. His steely resistance to categorization is the very essence and backbone of Pittsburgh. Built by a veritable melting pot of blue-collar workers, the once-gritty city has risen from the slag heap, through the smoke and haze, to become a sparkling, spectacular hub of culture and learning. Yet, it remains true to its deeply-forged identity.

John’s 2019 MTS release is “Love, Lust and Other Wreckage.” His single, “Rainbows And Lightning” reached the Top 20 on iTunes Canada charts, receiving national and international airplay and charting. John is a January 2019 Billboard Magazine Emerging Artist.

With guitar in hand and loop pedal under foot, New York-based singer-songwriter Tim Stout is a sight to be both seen and heard. His dynamic tunes burst with color to match his equally vivacious personality. Driven by impassioned vocals and nuanced guitar compositions, his scintillating and introspective lyrics illuminate the importance of building lasting relationships, fostering healthy communication, and finding beauty in the mundane. Inspired by great pop icons such as Prince, Ed Sheeran, and John Mayer, Stout melds modern pop sensibilities with a colorful vintage vibe to craft a sound that's sure to keep you grooving. After just a few short months performing around the New York City area, Stout opened for Allen Stone along with Caleb Hawley in a sold-out show at Brooklyn Bowl in November 2017, with plenty of gigs and festivals played since. His first single, "Get Familiar", is out now.

Do your part to keep guitar driven rock ALIVE... join Loudini LIVE! Go to http://LouLombardiMusic.com/InnerCircle to find out how you can be a part of our LIVE online audience and get access to exclusive music and video!

Expanding on their love of American R&B, The Resolectrics are a rock & soul
power trio exploring the vast landscapes of roots music with layered harmonies,
multi-tonal guitar tracks, and ambitious arrangements. Since releasing their
“Booker T. meets The Band” debut record, High Water, guitarist Tate Peterson,
drummer John Becher, and bassist Bob Dunham have honed a leaner, meaner

approach through continuous gigging and constant refinement. The band’s new
record, Open Seas (released Sep 21, 2018), adds some timeless, British Invasion-
style psychedelia to the mix along with a touch of horns and harmonica that help
reconnect the music to its soul-based heritage. It’s a bigger sound that’s radio-
ready and set for bigger stages and a larger audience.

Do your part to keep guitar driven rock ALIVE... join Loudini LIVE! Go to http://LouLombardiMusic.com/InnerCircle to find out how you can be a part of our LIVE online audience and get access to exclusive music and video!

Venice Beach native and rising newcomer Cozmic has been making waves in the urban electro-pop scene over the past few months with recent singles going viral on social media, critical acclaim in the indie music blogs and a recent deal with Kobalt Music’s AWAL.

Cozmic is on a quest to mine a new strain of pop music. A broadly resonant aesthetic brimming with soulfulness and bold artistry, his music reflects an intersection of a profound inner journey and an eclectic musical trajectory.

Prior to Cozmic, the artist was already an accomplished singer, songwriter, and guitarist, recording and touring with indie pop, EDM, and hip-hop projects. His performance highlights in this realm include appearances at Bonnaroo and The World Culture Festival in India in front of 3 million people. During this chapter of his career, he also collaborated with acclaimed creators such as Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park as well as producers Mike Gonsolin (French Montana, G-Eazy, Snoop Dog), Rami Beatz (Kid Cudi, Chris Brown), and Tim O'Heir (The Flaming Lips, Morphine, Dinosaur Jr., All-American Rejects).

Brady Novotny mixes his passions for shred and flameco on his latest release
21:00

Do your part to keep guitar driven rock ALIVE... join Loudini LIVE! Go to http://LouLombardiMusic.com/InnerCircle to find out how you can be a part of our LIVE online audience and get access to exclusive music and video!

Brady Novotny started playing the guitar at the age of 10. Determined to be a world class guitarist, he left his first guitar lesson with his instructor telling him basically to give it up now. Thus he was introduced to criticism and disappointment early in his endeavor. Nevertheless, Brady heard a guitar player that would motivate him to push all that aside and re-energrize his passion to continue; that guitar player was Randy Rhoads. Brady soon fell in love with classical and melodic guitar playing. Brady practiced restlessly learning everything from classical pieces, melodic and virtuosic solos from 80's guitar heroes, to jazz fusion.

Brady loved the guitar, and truly, that has been his passion. He attended Berklee College of Music for a little time. At the age of 19, he was asked to teach summer guitar workshop at Duquesne University. As life often happens, however, Brady got burned out and went back to school and received his masters in Psychology. Yep, that's right -- Psychology. But the passion is back and stronger than ever, plus it never hurts to have some money!
Brady set out to do an instrumental project that would have his listeners singing the haunting melodies while holding their attention by uniquely placed guitar virtuosity and dynamic rhythms creating a fusion of rock, flamenco, and jazz. His love for a variety of musical styles led him to study under many teachers in his life. Brady started out playing Classical guitar at the age of 10. Ever since then, Brady has had a strong affection for nylon string guitar sound. Ultimately, this led him to study Flamenco guitar. He immediately fell in love with the passion, virtuosity and rhythm of this style. The shred of the 80’s was one of his main influences and guilty pleasures, while Jazz was a big influence on Brady’s chordal choices and song color.

Brady has a wide range of experience in the music business. His experience ranges from the Pittsburgh rock scene to national tours. He has worked as a Pittsburgh session guitarist, Worship leader, and guitarist at several mega churches. He has also taught guitar at clinics and universities.

His 2019 release with MTS Management Group/MTS Records is “Passions Collide” featuring the lead single, “Redemption’s Cry.” The song, featuring a hauntingly beautiful vocal from Brady’s wife, Jennifer, is currently charting on the Airplay Today national radio charts.

Bill Abernathy: "It all starts with a story."
24:22

Do your part to keep guitar driven rock ALIVE... join Loudini LIVE! Go to http://LouLombardiMusic.com/InnerCircle to find out how you can be a part of our LIVE online audience and get access to exclusive music and video!
Everyone loves a good story about second-chances, and that’s exactly what Bill Abernathy’s story is all about. The Kansas City, Missouri resident began writing songs in his early teens. He played all through his school years, but then he stopped...Life took over.

Bill went about getting married, building a business career, and raising his children.
After his kids graduated from school and started their careers, Bill picked up the guitar again and began trying to rekindle his love of music.

“Inspiration for my music comes from a variety of the many parts of my life,” Bill says. “Events and experiences of mine, my family, my friends, and sometimes even people I have never met all, contribute to the creativity of my music. I find it interesting and rewarding to let my imagination wander through the memory and spirit of life events and see where it takes me.”
Bill is a pure "lyrics-first" writer...a bit of a storyteller. “I feel the story and lyrics talk to me and tell me what the rest of the song is supposed to sound like,” he says.
His last album, 2017’s “Find A Way” reached #5 on the Roots Music Report Traditional Folk Album chart, and the single, “Goodbye Will Never Come Again” reached #1 on the singles chart.
Bill’s latest collection of songs, “Crossing Willow Creek” is available now, with first single, “Cry Wolf” hitting radio airwaves around the globe. The single reached the iTunes Top 100 Rock Songs chart, while hitting the Top 5 on New Music Weekly’s country chart. Bill is also a December 2018 Billboard Magazine Emerging Artist.
“Sometimes life is good to you and gives you a second chance. In my youth I walked away from music for a myriad of personal reasons. Now, I've now been given a second chance to pursue this thing we love called music, and I am really enjoying the ride!”

Even Eddie Van Halen admits that he was not the first to make use of the now famous two hand tapping technique. Steve Hackett of Genesis claims to be the first recorded tapper.

In the mid 1980's, shortly after the release of The Final Cut, Roger Waters attempted to legally disband Pink Floyd. Thank the maker, he did not succeed in this endeavor. What he DID succeed in was alienated the band's other leader and kicking himself out of his own band. On today's Rockin' Rant I dicuss this cauntionary tale and what lessons can be learned from it.
Topics covered:
-Gilmour has as many if not more supporters that Waters
-The Final Cut and the humilation of Gilmour
-Life after Waters

My latest work came together in the form of an EP. I’ve written a lot of material over the last couple years and rather than creating a double album, I’ve chosen to release a series of EPs for this project.
We recorded the first EP, Faded Photographs, at my studio in Marin County and explored my current cultivation of songs with a new philosophy and an unfamiliar methodology. I brought most of the songs in fresh so everyone worked on them with a first instinct kind of prospective. For me, Faded Photographsreveals a metamorphosis in my writing. An evolution of looking back on the last 10 years of my life, letting go, and moving on. Like many of my lyrics, the album reflects on harder times with hope for greater days ahead.

“Come Down”, the single off the record expresses that exact sentiment. It’s an introspective song looking back on days when my addictions were out of control and holding on to how I currently feel today in more healthy lifestyle. Participating in the light as opposed to checking out into darkness. We had a ball making this album with an amazing collection of hearts that resulted in a record I am very proud of. My line up has changed over the years but our mission remains the same. To spread love through the art of music and hopefully give people the emotional responses we all share and find in the music we love the most.

Tortured cries from the supernatural haunt the punishing mystical metal of Ukraine’s Vovkulaka. The band’s singer-drummer-songwriter VolK is a dark conduit for paranormal activity and channels his explorations in this realm into his band’s tribal and occultist thrashings. The results are brutal and anthemic—white knuckle-rides that add new flesh to the bones of Korn, Pantera, Rob Zombie, and even Babymetal. Live, the band is something like a sexy séance, with a trio of musicians being joined onstage by a pair of stunning female dancers moving ceremoniously to the cathartic musical onslaught. Vovkulaka’s longtime producer is modern heavy music legend Darian Rundall (Pennywise, Suicidal Tendencies, Yellowcard).Internationally, the group is spreading its infectious call to arms #painneversoundedsogood with one-off shows, and making festival appearances back home in Ukraine, in Europe, and, in the near future, in the U.S.

Greg Connors, getting back on the chain gang
28:15

Do your part to keep guitar driven rock ALIVE... join Loudini LIVE! Go to http://LouLombardiMusic.com/InnerCircle to find out how you can be a part of our LIVE online audience and get access to exclusive music and video!
With a deceptively simple sound of an old country or blues record, his sound is at once raw and vulnerable, but distilled through a caustic brilliant prism of sound. Connors freshly weaves a view of emotion and experience; lyrical branches wound densely in and out of darkness and diffused light. His own raw and vulnerable sound journey can do any listener a great service. And if you've ever feel the limb snap, it may just be his dry wit.

From his teen years, drifting the fringes of various NYU independent music festivals and on to places such as CBGB's, Greg's path led him to Atlanta, Georgia, creating deliberate vibrations at such local favorites as the 40 Watt Club, in Athens, and the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, and then back to NYC again, with various stops along the way

Greg is making music currently in metro NYC. He has awakened audiences for the likes of John Mayer, Joseph Arthur, Cat Power, Smoke, Songs; Ohia, Palace Brothers, Joan as Police Woman and Vic Chesnutt.

In 2006 Scared Records released Greg's 5th Studio album,
"Here, There and Anymore", Produced by friend and studio wizard, Joseph Arthur.

Recorded with Bass player and recording engineer, Scott Fragala, Connors' 9th studio album, "Home Made Compass" will be available on March, 3rd 2018.

'Greg Connors’ trademark simple guitar licks and detached alienated, lonely voice are coupled with a scary command of the English language. He is the Howard Finster of music, painting vivid abstract images with his words and guitar.”

Taylor and the Apes are based in NYC and have developed a loyal following and a reputation for their superb songwriting and dynamic, raw, exciting live shows. Led by singer/guitarist Taylor Elliott, the Apes have developed a unique sound, influenced by every decade of rock n' roll's existence: '50's doo wop harmonies, thick Rhodes/Hammond keys of the '60's, '70's grand guitar solos, the big drum sounds of the '80's, the '90's guitar crunch, all wrapped together with current, yet timeless lyrics. Elliott's singing is direct, yet humble; and he sounds somewhere between Paul Westerberg and Tom Petty. After a busy year and gathering an every-growing fan base, the apes have just released their debut album, american livin'.

The lead single, “Sonic Boom” reached #4 on the iTunes Canada Rock chart on September 11, 2018.

Forged from garage jams and basement Youtube sessions, “Across The Board” finally broke out of the internet box with their debut album “Jane On Fire” in 2016, earning the band critical acclaim for the single “Indifference” which also became their first track to hit the FM radio waves and win an international independent music award.

The first single,” Don’t Drag Me Down” was featured on the International Women's Day website, and continues to receive airplay on US College Radio, internet and terrestrial FM radio in Canada and internationally including Australia, South America, Asia and Europe.

ATB was featured at Canadian Music Week in 2017, and toured across Canada from coast-to-coast by rail to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. ATB also toured Newfoundland and Vancouver in the summer of 2017 with the EP AMENDS and will be touring Canada again this summer with their newest full length album SONIC BOOM.

Kevin Bianchi gets a free guitar from his youth pastor and discovers Bob Dylan
23:45

Do your part to keep guitar driven rock ALIVE... join Loudini LIVE! Go to http://LouLombardiMusic.com/InnerCircle to find out how you can be a part of our LIVE online audience and get access to exclusive music and video!

As a lifelong seeker of truth, Kevin Bianchi has spent his entire musical career embracing and wrestling with the mystery of life and love in song. This has been exemplified by his time as the lead singer and songwriter for the indie rock band, the Chestertons. Having achieved regional success with the single 'Coast Road' and dynamic performances opening for artists such as James McCartney, he now begins a new journey with the formation of Vanishing Shores.

"The need to reach out and connect with those around us has never been greater," states Bianchi. It is this realization that inspires and informs each song by Vanishing Shores. From the opening of 'In Between' to the closing notes of 'Blurred' on their self-titled EP, the listener is invited to become a part of the story, not as a stranger but as a fellow traveler who is loved and accepted. The answers may not be found. Everything known may collapse at any moment, but 'even still, I won't let you go.' This promise, in all of its emotional complexity, is the true vision of Vanishing Shores.

Influenced by diverse artists such as Neil Finn and Elvis Costello, Vanishing Shores is not 'business as usual' but a band that pursues beauty wherever it may lead. Just like their musical inspirations, Vanishing Shores strive to deliver passionate, well-crafted rock and roll in each and every performance. As the band continues to develop, each song points to a future that is filled with limitless potential, founded on the power of music and the community it creates.

Drawing from Austin Wasielewski's (guitars, vocals) familiarity of psychedelic/acid rock, rap, R&B, folk/Americana, the sound is brought together by Tred Litely (drums, vocals) pop-punk, funk, indie-rock, math rock and fusion pulls, while Ryan D. Lee (bass) is a master of all things 80s, 90s and present. Together their lyrics seek to address the turmoil we experience every day by virtue of living in a modern world, but specifically a modern world so torn up by connecting troves of people who still feel disconnected.


Meeting at the community based rehearsal space Music City in San Francisco, the trio immediately found a musical connection. Their upcoming EP which pays homage to the place that brought them together is out this Fall. With the help of their community, they are setting their sights on bringing their music and message to the world....and we're eager to hear more

Taken from their upcoming record, the band will have you head over heels after first listen. Until very recently, the different members of this ensemble cast were working separately, settling with projects only half-fulfilling the addiction that they all shared. It was only when their lives started overlapping did they realize they would eventually come together to handcraft a sonic, melodic miasma of songs spanning over two full length albums. At the heart of Frantic Romantic is a love for a 90’s culture that's been swept away with yesteryear. It's that unknown band you hear in a rundown back alley venue. It's that album you pick up at the record store and spin on the car ride home—uninterrupted. That’s the culture Frantic Romantic longs for and the community they breathe life back into.

Love Stallion, Aaron Hart invites you to take a ride on his rock 'n roll steed
18:44

Do your part to keep guitar driven rock ALIVE... join Loudini LIVE! Go to http://LouLombardiMusic.com/InnerCircle to find out how you can be a part of our LIVE online audience and get access to exclusive music and video!

Love Stallion storms the music scene with original glamorous hard rock, sure to get your heart racing and ears pounding. Power riffs, memorable hooks, and electric flash capture the nostalgia of years gone by, bringing a fresh punch of rock & roll back to the universe in proper style.

Love Stallion began as an experiment; a spur of the moment co-write of the song "Big Rock Radio" by Aaron Hart & Crayton Huntly (aka Rob McLemore) outside a concert hall in the fall of 2013. Inspired by the "big rock" sound of the 70s & 80s, rockstars David Lee Roth & Freddie Mercury, and bands like Van Halen, Kiss, and Def Leppard, the duo enlisted the help of industry pros Dr Scott Martin & Kate Emerich, "Aaron Hart w/ Crayton Huntly" played their first show May 1st, 2015 at The Walnut Room Denver to a small crowd of friends.

As the crowd grew, so did the flash & flare of the live show. With the addition of Aero X (aka Aero Marquez) joining on bass, the band became recognized for their high energy live performance, flamboyant wardrobes of sequins, spandex and leather, and their signature Sexy Disco Legs.

The first video single "Slow Release" was released in March of 2018. It stormed to #1 on the IndiMusicTV charts and reached #4 on the iTunes Canada rock charts! Love Stallion's 'Unforgettable Ride' was produced by Steve Avedis (Tony Bennett,*NSYNC) at Colorado Sound Studios and was released on June 2nd 2018.

Do your part to keep guitar driven rock ALIVE... join Loudini LIVE! Go to http://LouLombardiMusic.com/InnerCircle to find out how you can be a part of our LIVE online audience and get access to exclusive music and video!

Growing up in Eastern Ontario (South of Ottawa), Canada, Cory M. Coons has been passionate about music since his early teen years, and he began learning guitar and bass, which led him to crafting his own melodies and musical ideas, while still in High School. Shortly after, he would begin travelling and performing in a variety of cover bands throughout the mid-to-late 90's, in both Ontario and the Southeastern United States.

Now, Cory has just released a brand new melodic rock Cd/Album "The Long Road Home", in early 2018. It has been produced by Multi-Gold & Platinum veteran music producer, Ron Nevison, (Heart, Bad Company, Damn Yankees, Survivor, Styx, Night Ranger.) Additional tracking/overdubs, and driving force on guitar on the new record is guitarist/engineer Marc D. Muir.

Cory was nominated at the "Producer's Choice Honors", (formerly Los Angeles Music Awards), in the "Rock Artist Of The Year" category for 2015. He was the the 2014 recipient of the Producer's Choice Honor for "Studio Album Of The Year," for his Independent E.p "Share A Little Time".

Horsehead proves that rock 'n roll is stronger than open heart surgery
27:23

Do your part to keep guitar driven rock ALIVE... join Loudini LIVE! Go to http://LouLombardiMusic.com/InnerCircle to find out how you can be a part of our LIVE online audience and get access to exclusive music and video!


The band is currently sharing their enticing new lyric video for "The Misprint," which has us head over heels immediately. Taken from their upcoming record "Pageant Wave," out later this year, this is the first glimpse we have into the world of Horsehead for 2018.

Horsehead's Jon Brown of the group says of the track:

“My brother and I used to take trips together; drinking vacations if you will. One of those trips was the inspiration for the song. It’s not autobiographical per se (it’s quite embellished) but we all are searching for something and screwing up along the way.”

A little reminiscent of artists such as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young and Jason Isbell, the group bring a unique and eclectic sound to the table that is very much their own. "The Misprint," dives in deep to the sound of the band with powerful instrumentation and honest lyricism that drives the track home.

A little bit Country, a little bit Rock n' Roll, the group takes the reigns and heads into glory on the new track....our ears are eager for the upcoming record in tow.

OVER A DECADE OF SPLITTING ATOMS, HORSEHEAD NOW SETS THEIR SITES ON ASSEMBLING THEM ALL OVER AGAIN. THIS TIME, THE LOW-END LAB COATS FILLED BY STEVE CHILES (TEST TUBES) AND RICKY TUBB (BEAKER FILLING), BUNSEN BURNER DUTIES FULFILLED BY KEVIN WADE INGE ALL WHILE JON BROWN SCRAWLS THE FORMULAS. MOST THINK TANKS CAN'T MAKE IT PAST 2 THEOREMS, YET HORSEHEAD IS PREPARING THEIR SIXTH DISPATCH. DANCE AND SING, BUT DON'T LET THE SQUIRRELS SEE YOU SMILE. WAVE, IT MAY BE LOVE.

My name is Bruce Grimm. People call me Grubb from an old high school nickname.

I'd like to mention my first band Arch Rival (Eastern Version) and that three songs on this CD are from them. 13,Daddy and Mr.Magic

The newest line up of MOS had some serious health and family problems and couldn't continue. DRUMMER almost died twice. Heart problems

I would rather not mention studio where music was recorded. It was only about the money to them and had no concern about what I actually wanted.

Studio where I recorded vocals was awesome really helpful and toward what I wanted.

James Lee Baker finding the balance between folk and Americana
22:17

Do your part to keep guitar driven rock ALIVE... join Loudini LIVE! Go to http://LouLombardiMusic.com/InnerCircle to find out how you can be a part of our LIVE online audience and get access to exclusive music and video!

A classically trained musician, James Lee Baker fuses influences from acoustic singer-songwriters like David Mead, Ellis Paul, John Gorka, Gregory Alan Isakov, Bob Dylan, and Slaid Cleaves. He embraces open tunings to create an unconventional but welcoming sound and timbre to his playing. Trained briefly by Richard Gilewitz, a renowned fingerstyle guitar player, James Lee’s fingerstyle guitar playing is rich and melodic, pulling listeners into memorable motifs and atmospheres.

In 2017, Baker released a Texas-inspired full-length project called “Home Again.” Harnessing his experience in technology, Baker recruited talented studio session musicians, accessing performers from Los Angeles, Canada, The United Kingdom, and Denver. “Home Again” is a Country-flavored Americana album, rich with instrumentation like dobro, lap steel, fiddle, and harmonica.

In March, he released an EP of Folk/Americana songs called The Canadian River. The single of the same title placed #23 on the FolkDJ radio charts in April of 2018, and the song “Two Cageless Birds” went on to be selected for the John O’Hara Songwriting Performance Grant.

James has played at several prominent venues including the Whiskey A Go Go in Los Angeles, The Fox Theater in Boulder, and Swallow Hill and The Walnut Room in Denver.

Gestures & Sounds is a one-stop shop for a great time. Their authentic
compositions are raw and evoke real feelings, mostly because they don’t know
how to be any other way. Live performances are a rollercoaster of up and higher.
After high school, best friends Erik, Brian and Jory left Wisconsin to pursue film
careers. Their cramped Los Angeles apartment spawned late-night muted jam
sessions that put them on a new course. With their sights set on starting a band,
they quickly scooped up Jeremy as their fourth best friend and drummer. And so
they began their love lives as Gestures & Sounds.

Warmth in sound and lyrics is a given with these guys. From cozy and swooning
to top-of-the-lungs raging. In tune with each other, the crowd, and anyone
wearing flannel at any given moment in the world, G&S are equal parts
melodically innovative and lyrically wrenching.

Keith Cooper embraces the unkown and learns to trust the universe

Born in Phoenix, AZ, a gemini, Cooper’s first love was lawn sprinklers. At the age of 6 he assembled his first above ground sprinkler system with pvc pipe, strong smelling waterproof glue, Toro© brand sprinklers and possibly a little help from his father. Changing light bulbs was also an early hobby. He was punished more than once for flicking bulbs within his reach, trying to burn them out. Happily by adolescence music had mostly replaced this destructive habit. Jeremiah Green’s drumming on early Modest Mouse records inspired him to get behind a kit. Being too scared to stand up on stage and read his poetry by itself inspired him to start songwriting. He played in Tucson, AZ based post punk band Overcast Off from 2009 -2012 while attending the University of Arizona. Then, to avoid a dead end job, he moved across the country to Somerville, MA where he learned how to make lattes and have 30 second conversations with no awkward pauses. Hosting a weekly music night at his cafe for 5 years made him a familiar face in the local music community. He released You Didn’t Know Me, a lyrically driven indie rock record, in 2016. A completely DIY local release, no effort was made to promote the record beyond friends and hometown fans. Rabid Underdogs will be his second full length record and it finds Cooper widening his ambitions. Recorded over a 2 year period of short sessions at the Soul Shop in Medford, MA, and produced by Elio DeLuca (Titus Andronicus), it was funded entirely by slinging coffee.

Nita Strauss, Steps boldly into her solo career after years as a Side Woman
28:24

Do your part to keep guitar driven rock ALIVE... join Loudini LIVE! Go to http://LouLombardiMusic.com/InnerCircle to find out how you can be a part of our LIVE online audience and get access to exclusive music and video!

Los Angeles born guitarist Nita Strauss has become a force to be reckoned with in the music world, dazzling audiences across the US, UK, Europe, South America, Asia, Australia and Africa. Most fans will recognize Nita as Alice Cooper’s touring guitarist of the past 4 years, but she has also played with R&B star Jermaine Jackson, early MTV darlings Femme Fatale, video game supergroup Critical Hit and popular tribute band The Iron Maidens. Her skill, exuberant stage presence and love for all things about her instrument have earned her a stellar reputation in the music industry and endorsements including Ibanez Guitars, Marshall Amplification, DiMarzio pickups, Monster Energy and more.

2018 has been a banner year for Nita. In January she was officially announced as the first ever female Ibanez signature artist with her own model, the Ibanez JIVA. She also released her signature pickups, the DiMarzio Pandemonium. April saw Nita playing WWE Superstar Shinsuke Nakamura’s entrance music at Wrestlemania in New Orleans in front of an audience of 78,000 fans and millions streaming worldwide, and in the same month she launched a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign for her debut solo record Controlled Chaos. The campaign reached its goal in two hours, doubled it by the end of the day, tripled the following day and ended up over 800% funded. Nita produced the record herself and did the majority of the engineering, as well as playing all the guitars and bass on the record. After the record was competed, Nita signed with Sumerian Records to release and distribute the album worldwide. After finishing out the Alice Cooper tour cycle, Nita will immediately hit the road supporting Controlled Chaos alongside modern guitar virtuoso Angel Vivaldi.

Nita has been featured on the covers of many worldwide print magazines and on dozens of albums, trailers, and soundtracks, including Heroes Of The Storm (Blizzard) and Grammy-nominated Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (Konami/ Platinum Games); and is the author of the Guitar World column “Like A Hurricane”. Nita was also the official in-house guitarist for the LA KISS, the arena football team owned by Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS. She is one of the most sought after clinicians in the industry and has done extensive clinic tours across multiple continents. Her consistent touring schedule has shown her to play in front of over a million audience members per year consistently for the past several years. Nita is also extremely passionate about health and fitness, and uses her wide social media reach to inspire and educate people about maintaining a healthy lifestyle while traveling on tour.

Nita’s debut solo album Controlled Chaos will be available worldwide November 16 through Sumerian Records.

Amie Penwell, Music is Cheaper than Therapy!
20:48

Do your part to keep guitar driven rock ALIVE... join Loudini LIVE! Go to http://LouLombardiMusic.com/InnerCircle to find out how you can be a part of our LIVE online audience and get access to exclusive music and video!

Amie Penwell music is alternative, piano pop, with enough soul to dip it's foot into alt. country and gospel, joining the likes of Ray LaMontagne, Annie Lennox, Melissa Etheridge, and Peter Gabriel.

I believe all of us are trying to better navigate and understand our roles, plights, masks, defenses, and reactions to a world in an increasingly, desperate need to experience more of ourselves in these confines, real or imagined. Giving voice to our own truths, our realities, our power, our fear of that power, and the paradox of the need to admit powerlessness before true change proceeds. I’ve spent the last few years working on a collection of songs that came out of conversations I had, and experiences I’ve shared, with women of diverse ethnic, economic and religious backgrounds. With the help of my collaborators, that collection has become my new record, Windows. It’s an intimate, firsthand look into the lives of nine women on nine different journeys. Each song is a portrait of individual and collective exploration through acceptance, power, will, humility, denial, willingness, faith, surrender, and freedom. The ultimate goal of this work is to stimulate conversations with one another, to help each other and the upcoming generations be more awake, objective, vocal, and free. To walk with one another through the sometimes brutal inventory of facing of ourselves, through the society we find ourselves in.

My main objective as an artist is to focus on what the moment has to teach me, to extract truth, the lesson from the beastly, the beautiful, and every ordinary passing in between. My experience has made clear to me that the more honest I am with myself, the more connected I can be with others. I believe there is no work worth sharing that won't at least try to be of service to another. With this in mind, when I began working on Windows, the songs were in charge the whole way through. They arrived one by one like premonitions pushing and pulling against each other. The first one pulled me out on a rainy night to catch Maia Sharp (Bonnie Raitt, Dixie Chicks, Art Garfunkel) live at a show in Berkeley CA. As soon as I heard Maia sing her song Underneath, I knew I wanted to write with her. I worked up the courage to send my song “Dogfight On The Moon” This led to my sending the first iPhone recording of “Window” about a successful executive woman in the middle of a meeting for a moment baring witness to the stark contrast of reality right outside the window. I remember standing in the middle of a playground watching 5-year-olds at work listening to the way she changed some phrasing at the end of “Window.” I knew it was special. Maia sent along a verse, chorus and melody for a title she’d been kicking around. It was "Noticing Place.” a song about a middle-aged woman realizing what she is allowing herself to become. I sent back “This Ain’t Happening To You,” an alt-country song about a woman in her late 30’s diagnosed with MS expressing how angry she is at everyone telling her what to do and how to feel when all she wants is to be pissed off. Lastly, we wrote “Angels In The Sand” about an older woman who has reached a place of seeing the spectrum of her experiences both joyful and at times horrific and how they have made up the mosaic of her life. It felt like an effortless songwriting tennis match—or like having a new pen pal. The remaining songs I wrote alone. To raise enough funds to begin, I set out to do a small crowdfunding campaign. After a first go of recording the record, I decided I needed to set them aside and approach the work more organically. Songs can sound perfect, but not feel right. I took another big gamble. I booked six days at Tiny Telephone Recording in San Francisco to record and mix. I will be forever grateful to John Vanderslice (founder and owner of TT) for building his version of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, for maintaining an affordable creative oasis for DIY musicians to work in the midst of one of the most expensive cities on the planet. Partnering up with Engineer, Multi-Instrumentalist and Arranger Adam Hirsch, (Ex Eye, Sam Amidon). Drummer Jason Slota, (The Mountain Goats, John Vanderslice) Bassist Matt Penwell, Guitarist Jeri Jones, (Blame Sally) Jeff Oster (Will Ackerman, Deepak Chopra) on Trumpet and Flugel Horn, Pianist Adam Rossi (Luce, Brad Brooks), Cellist Marissa Dietze, and myself on piano, Rhodes, pedal organ, vocals. Over four days, we recorded nine songs on analog tape, leaving the last two to mix. I later re-recorded my song “Mercy” about a young woman who has had faith but lost it, with producer Adam Rossi for Notes4Hope, a breast cancer benefit compilation and decided to add it to the record. Finishing up one of the tracks “Unstoppable” with my long-time collaborator, Drew Pearce, and engineer, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Gawain Matthews (guitar, organ, bass) about woman willing to stand in her full unedited strength, calling on other women to unite in mutual respect, to stand together in the face of everything. The song immediately caught the ear of Director Windy Borman, making it the credit song for her film Mary Janes The Women Of Weed. Lastly, I called on Jim Greer (Foster The People, Yoko Ono) to mix Unstoppable and Window, and master the record. I was raised in Massachusetts by an Irish/Italian family the youngest of four siblings, all avid music lovers. My upbringing was full of religion, poverty, love and the savior of stereos blasting the likes of The Police, U2, Van Halen, Rush, Journey, Prince, Pavarotti, Kris Kristofferson, and Fleetwood Mac, among many others. My core influences are Peter Gabriel, Radiohead, and Prince. My underground hit single, “Mercy,” was featured in the award-winning 2012 documentary, The Eyes of Thailand, which was narrated by Ashley Judd. In 2013, my EP Under City Lights was featured on Season 2 of Web series “Bloomers” and The Ask BonBon Show. In 2015, I was a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Contest (ISC) in the Adult Album Alternative category for my song “Dogfight On The Moon”. In 2016, my song “Somewhere The Sky Is Blue” with Grammy Award-winning Producer Ricky Kej, in the Dominica Scorsese film Almost Paris.
