::RECENT SESSIONS::

[THE VISION OF A DYING WORLD]
The sound of San Diego's Vision of a Dying World falls somewhere between NRBQ and Wilco, but with a bit of California surf music for unique coloring. On their latest, ...and the Grammar Lamb, it's difficult to imagine how this record could be any better, as the unity of songs, musicianship and production make for one fantastic, highly-enjoyable listening trip. Recorded by Jalipaz.

[DAY ACTION BAND]
Wives & Babies, the new release from Day Action Band, has the riveting lyrics and honest production we've come to expect from this talented brother duo. Written, performed and produced by the band.

[CLAIRE JENKINS AVEC BAND]
Crow's Nest /Nid De Pie. Claire Jenkins has a knack for writing poetic lyrics and delivering a magical vocal. And the accompaniments always frame her vocals in just the right way. Recorded live in the studio by king of the buckwheat pancakes, Don Kerr.

[I WAS TOTALLY DESTROYING IT]
The debut from Chapel Hill's newest hard-hitting, melodic power popsters, I Was Totally Destroying It, takes hold of the fun & energy of rock's past and drives it forward, full speed into the present with a bold, refreshing new sound. Solid production (Warrior Sound) & gripping songs throughout.

[DANO]
One Drop Pop, a phenomenal steel drum album by master pan-man & party-maker, Dano Lancelot, takes listeners through Caribbean-flavored instrumental versions of modern rock hits such as Coldplay's Clocks and Weezer's Island In the Sun, as well as other classic rock, pop & reggae numbers.

[TONY ALLEN]
Tony Allen, a Canadian with an Appalachian soul, has released Steam, a collection of old-time music favorites. Allen is a masterful fiddler /vocalist who delivers a traditional sound with freshness, ease and authority. A long-time member of the Backstabbers Country Stringband, Allen steps into the spotlight along with the playful, cartoonish vocals of the talented Kristine Schmitt and guest appearances by numerous great players. Recorded by Don Kerr.

[HAMMER NO MORE THE FINGERS]
A three-piece rock outfit with a full-sound, real dynamics, a sense of humor and unique vocal phrasing. These guys can really play, and their latest release, a self-titled EP, makes it all sound oh so effortless (but we know that's the trick). Recorded by Jay Murphy.

[DOWN BY AVALON]
Catchy pop for fans of 60s thru 80s-era bands, especially REM & XTC. This Chapel Hill band has been lurking around the scene for a while and has finally released their self-titled, full-length debut on Urban Myth. Recorded by Dan Bryk.

[DAN BRYK]
Discount Store (Urban Myth) is the latest EP from NC via Toronto's Dan Bryk. We promise that the title track, mixed by Greg Wells (Mika, Rufus Wainwright, Sara Bettens), won't quickly escape your head. Recorded by Bryk.

[PJAY]
The dirty south's best-kept secret catches fire on Tha One & Only (Bail Bonds). Songs like “Get Dat” and “Jump Bac at 'Em” prove Pjay is rivaled by few. Produced and recorded by Greg Miller & Charles Howard.

[CUTLERY]
Hailing from Baltimore & Washington, D.C.,Cutlery latest EP, Americans In Love, successfully blends modern pop with rock, techno & cinema. This music is extremely cutting-edge! (Ha!)

[MARK C. WILLIAMS]
Williams' latest LP, Freedom, shows his heavier, rockin' side but also delivers the beauty and consistency found on his earlier releases. Recorded by Todd Proctor & Jim Crew.

[CARRIE CATHERINE]
Green-Eyed Soul, an LP from Saskatoon's gifted & sparkly Carrie Catherine is a collection of clever songs and tasteful production enveloped in groove & poetry. Recorded by Don Kerr.

[HAVE A HOLLY RALEIGH CHRISTMAS]
Jeff mastered and helped organized the holiday CD titled Have a Holly Raleigh Christmas Volume II and even wrote a couple of the featured songs. Proceeds will go to the Community Music School (serving Wake County), which provides one-on-one music instruction for children of financially-challenged families. Raleigh-area artists have contributed fourteen original and traditional tracks to the compilation. Look for great musical contributions by the Capitol City Five, PCB Trio, Vaughan Penn, Bill Leslie, the Rare Grooves, Winterbourne, Stephen Ineson, Martin & Johnson, David Dyer & the Crooked Smile Band, Rob Sharer, the Feargall Family, Anthony Neff, the Magic Babies, and Nixon, Blevins & Gage.

[TRACY THORNTON]
Pan Can Jam! is Tracy's release for 2007. There is nothing else like this in the steel drum world. Rock & funk originals are banged out on steel drums, yet the recording has the meatiness and warmth of a rock recording.
