Michael Des Barres
Michael Des Barres
Michael Philip Des Barres, Marquis Des Barres (born 24 January 1948) is a British actor and rock singer. He is known for playing the recurring role of Murdoc on the television show MacGyver and for replacing the late Robert Palmer in the band Power Station, fronting the band at the 1985 Live Aid concert. He is also the ex-husband of groupie, actress and author Pamela Des Barres and is written about extensively in two of her books, I'm With The Band and Take Another Little Piece Of My Heart.
Tsar
The LA rock group TSAR is back with a new 5-song EP! "The Los Angeles quartet, embracing the power-pop hooks of Cheap Trick, the glammy affectations of Sweet and punk-rock swagger of the Stooges, released two albums last decade that were the antidote of weighty angst of grunge and its progeny.

(The) new EP, "The Dark Stuff," is their first new material in seven years. To hear it, you'll wonder how the Darkness got so huge and Tsar didn't. Or why Tsar weren't invited to all the T. Rex tribute parties." - Kevin Bronson, BuzzBandsLA
Harlan
Harlan
Harlan was born in New York City and trained in classical music by the age of 4. At 6 he moved to Los Angeles with his mother and father, a musical composer and conductor. Harlan attended Berklee College of Music in Boston where he majored in music production and engineering. After realizing that he was spending more time working on music for himself than the classroom, he dropped out and headed back to LA. Harlan writes, produces and plays all the instruments on his recordings. He's released two albums under his middle name "Alex" as "1/2" of the duo Alex & Sam, and has written and performed on songs heard on Private Practice, ABC's Castle and various VH1 shows. Harlan's debut solo project, the Native Son EP, is now available at www.HarlanMusic.com
The Dustbowl Revival
The Dustbowl Revival
"A nine-piece band that would have sounded utterly at home within the hallowed confines of Preservation Hall in New Orleans' French Quarter. The seven men, most with suspenders attached to well-worn trousers, broad ties and vests and some sporting 1930s-vintage newsboy caps, and two women in flapper-inspired dresses, are members of a ragtag outfit called the Dustbowl Revival, strumming, sawing and puffing enthusiastically as smiling listeners on the dance floor swung their partners infectiously."
-- THE LOS ANGELES TIMES
The Far West
The Far West
"Technically pure, slightly jaded, no-nonsense and honest with stellar storytelling for the every-man." The Far West came together in early 2010, each member having left other bands to pursue a unique sound they weren't getting elsewhere. Robert Black, hailing from Texas has played in dozens of bands from the plains all the way to the coasts (in both directions). In his Texas days he backed a number of bands in all day BBQ hoedowns and late night jam sessions. He even had a band share a bill with Townes Van Zandt. In Los Angeles, after working as a session bassist for several LA bands like Leslie & The Badgers, West of Texas & many others, he met singer Lee Briante. Briante comes from the fertile Hudson Valley of NY, by way of the rolling hills of Western Mass. His parents instilled a deep love of music in him from a very early age, taking him to see a wide variety of music like Arlo, Pete Seegar, Charlie Daniels and many others. Memories of rowdy irish bands burning through bow rosin in low ceiling riverside taverns stand out in his mind. Lee has been playing in bands since he was 15 or so, among others he played in the Northampton, MA ambient band paris., the Boston band 1986 and the LA based Queen Victoria. Ready to start a project of his own he made contact with Robert Black by posting a simple craigslist ad that consisted of nothing more then a Waylon Jennings video. James Williams is the bands lone CA native. He brings his unique style to the band, playing organ, piano and keys,
He has played in Biirdie, the breakups, and SpongeBob SquarePants and the Hi-Seas. and performed live on KTLA Morning News, KXLU, and KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic with Nick Harcourt. On top of all this, he was the recipient of his high school's Louis Armstrong Jazz Award Virgina born guitarist Brian Bachman had been playing in several bands in LA, but after sharing a bill with The Far West, he wanted in. TFW wanted him too and once the timing worked out Brian joined up and added a depth and excitement to the sound that was greatly needed. After seeing Alabama native Alan F. Rogers drum in a downtown LA bar The Far West knew they had to have him. It turned out Alan was looking for something just like The Far West, and after some mutual appreciation smoke blowing, the lineup was solidified.

Once The Far West came together they got right to work, gigging all across Southern California in places like The Echo, Pappy & Harriets, Hotel Cafe, Cowboy Palace Saloon, Taix, Silverlake Lounge & many more. The American Legion Post 416 in encinitas had become a familiar venue to them and it was here that over 3 days in December 2010 The Far West recorded an album of original songs with he help of Engineer/ Producer Colin Mclean. Done live-to-tape with minimal overdubs this record captures the live energy and beautiful tone of the Legion Post. The boys have been gigging ever since, making stops at the 2011 & 2012 SXSW festival in Austin & countless jukejoints across the southwest. They're proud to share stages with their contemporaries like Mike Stinson, Brennan Leigh, Broken Numbers Band, David Serby, The Americans, Tony Gilkyson, JD McPherson and many more.
The Sister Ruby Band
The Sister Ruby Band
The Sister Ruby Band is the psych-rock project of 22 year old Los Angeles based Johnny Ruby. After last year's self-recorded EP "A Shot In The Dark", The Sister Ruby Band is set to release their full-length debut album "In Cold Blood". Featuring appearances from guest musicians such as The Black Market Band and the Sugarplum Fairies, this record oscillates between the gauzy sounds of British shoe gaze and West Coast psychedelia.

According to Buzz Bands LA's Kevin Bronson "Sister Ruby's woozy wall of sound isn't too far from the reverb-soaked shimmer of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and, when the guitars are turned down, that trio's excellent excursion into Americana, "Howl." The singer himself? Ruminative and world-weary, on two continents."
The Walcotts
The Walcotts
The Walcotts are a 9-piece LA based Americana/Rock band
"Dr John and Tom Waits spend a night drinking together somewhere between New Orleans and Los Angeles. A great cross-pollination of R&B, Soul and Country" 
-No Depression 

"It’s the essence of true L.A. Americana music where country, blues, folk, gospel, jazz and country come together with an unforced, spontaneous and uncontrived feel." 
-Turnstyled Junkpiled

"Sings like the ghost of Levon Helm, and songs like “Should Have Been Me” mix six or seven instruments together playing a great hook, without crowding one another out"
-San Diego Troubadour

"If you are missing the music of Levon Helm, look no further"
-L.A. Record
