BEE APPLESEED and NORA KEYES

Together, Nora and Bee have started a record label to put out theirs and other releases called Godyssey Music and are embarking on another European tour performing separate sets and an improvised performance together called Elf Freedom, all of which will be recorded for a live compilation on the label. Audiences are likely to feel elevated, connected, and transformed during this unique cultural experience as the pair bridge the gap between California and the world through layers of cosmic sound.

LISA PAPINEAU

On her fourth solo record, “Oh Dead On Oh Love” Papineau has created a aural canvas of lush but quietly unsettling arrangements: strings, brass, woodwinds, and other traditional instrumentation fuse organically with ambient tones. Vocal harmonies reminiscent of 70s FM radio super groups twine seamlessly through percussive vocalizations, haunting Yma Sumac or Meredith Monk-like swells unravel into plaintive shouts.

LOmB

Based in the creative hub of Catania and born in 1971, Giuseppe Lombardo can write songs that sound – and actually are – honest and intense, a merciless attempt to heal wounds that life gives us, often invisible but deeper than tattoos. His kindred souls are Tom Waits, Sir King Ink “Let Love In” era, Morphine, but also the burning alt.folk of Willard Grant Conspiracy and Steve Wynn’s “days of wine and roses”.

SECRET THEORY

Secret Theory is a 5-piece rock band formed in 2014, based in Larissa, Greece. Band’s members share the love for heavy rock sounds, with a mixed range of influences: alternative, stoner grooves, grunge. Their common background is an uncompromising real punk attitude, as proved by their cover of Dead Kennedys “Too Drunk to Fuck”.
