This man has his own label, Soul Revelation. Releasing his first solo under that banner, Soul Searching features players who are the funkiest in the jazz/funk fusion world.


Background vocals come from the guy who did the Good Times TV show theme song. Yes, that's Jim Gilstrap. Need more? How about Pam and Joyce Vincent of Tony Orlando and Dawn? And then there's the inimitable Miles Davis keyboardist, Deron Johnson. Why not also toss in an additional cadre of super-talented musicians to guarantee a knockout punch? The magnitude of talent involved in the making of Soul Searching is quite stunning.

Franki Love Premieres New Single
"Walking Wounded"

"I'm hoping that when people hear the song, they'll feel
inspired and connected to it." - Franki Love

LA/NYC based singer-songwriter Franki Love has released her brand new single "Walking Wounded" from her upcoming album OTIAS, out later this year. "I wrote 'Walking Wounded' late one night at the piano," Franki tells Cliche Mag. "After my mom passed away from cancer, I was being mentored by music producer Phil Ramone who encouraged me to sit at the piano and start writing. I wrote this song about how we're all connected as one - if one person is hurting, then we are all walking wounded."

"Walking Wounded" was produced by Grammy award-winning producer, David Kershenbaum, who also produced two other songs on OTIAS.

The Yetis Release Debut Music
Video "Little Surfer Girl"

This is our debut music video that we directed and edited ourselves! We are promoting this single one last time before we go back into the studio in two weeks to record our new 3-song EP, Lonely Tandem Ride!

The Yetis are an indie rock band from Allentown, Pennsylvania. The sometimes-snowy Pennsylvanian town is not inhabited by abominable snowmen but instead by four young friends who formed a band in a garage attic.

Locals are residents of musical nirvana, not to be confused with the band Nirvana - or any other band, for that matter. They flip, slide, rock, roll, and so much more. Flip on that reverb - oh, yes, you've got it!


Their Facebook page lists their genre as: "Tasty Melodies." Excuse us if we insist on a little elaboration: "Fantastic Surf-Influenced Rock 'n' Roll Music Punctuated by Tasty Melodies." Case in point - get a load of Locals' Ride The Wave video. Hello! Locals are so damn good everyone literally stopped and walked over to watch their video when it hit the screen.



VDR's debut album, Jupiter's Kiss, is anticipated to be released SUMMER 2015!




If Black Flag played surf music and the record was produced by DEVO, you're on the right track.




"Delightful, badass, and necessary." - Dirty Hippie Radio




Stream The Album Exclusively at The Deli.




The EP includes the Billboard Dance Chart hit "Aware Alive Awake".




Off Their Debut EP, SonicAluzion (A-Side).




"Ride The Wave" was written instinctively with the desire to keep it simple and get you dancing.
