The Henry Clay People
The Henry Clay People
After just over 10 years as a band, The Henry Clay People played their final show in August of 2013 and went their separate ways.
Son of Stan

Son of Stan is the solo project and band of songwriter Jordan Richardson (Drummer for Ben Harper, Ringo Starr). The creative debut album is set for release in 2013 and was produced by Adam Lasus (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) and shocases a unique, psychedelic style that Richardson calls "Divorce Pop".

The sound of his forthcoming album, due for release in 2013, though hard to pinpoint, range in influence from the darker side of 80's pop such as Joe Jackson, Phil Collins, R. Stevie Moore, (and even Hall and Oates) to more, even heavier, stonier psychedelic nods.

Richardson told Dallas based blog Central Track: "It's a little difficult to describe the sound of it, but there is a definite aesthetic goal in mind with the record. There are a lot of songs from my childhood in the mid 80's that when I hear now they give me a totally unsettling feeling (songs I refer to as "divorce pop", though my parents remain happily married) and remind me of the pains of being dragged around by my mom on hot Saturday afternoons in 1989, to a weird strip mall women's clothing store called 'Show Off Fashion'. I want to make songs that convey that feeling and mood. "North Texas Unsettling Childhood Memory Pop". or maybe "Divorce Pop". The song "Corsica" is definitely about that, I think. Both sonically and in subject matter... I dunno. Its weird and you can dance to it, but I hope it makes you feel a little funny.
TS and The Past Haunts
TS and The Past Haunts
Formed out of the demise of Boston indie/punk rock royalty, TS & The Past Haunts came to be through mutual friends sharing common interests. Travis Shettel (TS/Totally Travis), guitarist, singer and ring-leader of the band Piebald, met The Duke Spirit (Shangri-La Records) when he was invited to take on tour manager duties for the band during one of their first US tours. Acting as a US Ambassador-of-sorts for the band, a friendship was formed and The Duke Spirit soon learned of Travis' musical past. After asking TS to join them both on the road and in the studio playing keys and percussion, it would only be a matter of time before they would return the favor. Travis and The Duke Spirit knuckled down in between their tours of Australia and the UK and recorded a handful of his songs; learning, writing and recording along the way.

Since the Dukes have their own schedules full with... well, The Duke Spirit, Travis wanted an outlet to perform the songs live. The recordings with The Dukes were a catalyst for the formation of a true band. He found his rhythm section in Ben (drums) and Heather (bass) Heywood, a married duo who front bands of their own (Summer Darling and Kissing Cousins, respectively). The power trio version of TS & THE PAST HAUNTS has been busy; playing shows and writing songs. In the very near future, they will be heading north to Sacramento to record a full length album with Robert Cheek at the tape-op darling studio, The Hangar. They plan to record live to capture the energy and rawness of their live performances. The new batch of songs are energized blasts of dark rock that still maintain pop sensibilities
