Diverse and passionate, her influences range from the angelic, pure sound of Lara Fabian to Enigma's hypnotic grooves, from '80's powerhouse tunes to the plaintive honesty of Everything But The Girl.

From her CD "Keep Walking" ~ © 2007 All rights reserved.

Emily Maguire used to write songs in a flat in London until one day she'd had enough of grey skies and concrete and refusing to give up her guitar for a proper job, she got on a plane to see what life looked like from the other side of the world. She now lives in the Australian bush, dodging snakes and spiders in a shack on a goat farm. Described as "music and lyrics of an artist that goes leaps and bounds beyond" (IndepenDisc), Emily's new album, "Keep Walking" is available now through her website or from iTunes.

From his CD "Goodbye, My Dream" ~ © 2007 All rights reserved.

He studied composition, arrangement and recording. Like many other young people of his generation, he went on to pursue a technical career. With that, he had very little time for music, but a strong desire to play and compose that never let him quit. His first CD, "Goodbye, My Dream", released in 2007, is a journey to the world of soul searching, a quest for universal harmony through the Art of Muses.
Buck69Buck69: Someone Like Me(4:31)
From their CD "When She Whispers Your Name" ~ © 2007 All rights reserved.

Like Bob Seger meeting Jonny Lang in a juke joint to talk about Eric Clapton. A father and son blues rock band mixing together the old and the new with a bang. With three members over the age of 45 and 5 members under the age of 30, Buck69 is influenced by more than three generations of music. In 2002 after a short sabbatical to concentrate on wife, kids and career, Tom Clawson formerly of "T.C. Rogers & The Blue's Hamilton Band" 1970's Warren, OH. (Singer-Songwriter-Guitar) along with his oldest son Alex Clawson from the band "BHB" Toledo, OH (Singer-Songwriter-Guitar) decided to start playing out as an acoustic duo.

Clay McClintonClay McClinton: Worn Down To The Bone (3:11)
From his CD "Son Of A Gun" ~ © 2006 All rights reserved.

Clay McClinton's musical sound is woven together with rawhide and hemp, barbwire and willow reed. It's that eclectic sound born in Texas where honky tonk, Delta blues and soulful rock meld seamlessly. Clay's music introduces "altnerative country" to "contemporary blues," and the two genres become fast friends. His new CD, Son of a Gun, boasts plenty of gutsy, gritty lyrics laid on a strong musical bed. While he has clearly inherited the talents of his Grammy award-winning father, Delbert McClinton, Clay has carved his own niche in the world of music with his original style and sound that appeals to audiences across the country.
Astronaut DownAstronaut Down: The Dream (5:02)
From their CD "God's Eye" ~ © 2007 All rights reserved.

The music of Astronaut Down strives to achieve a balance between the depth and complexity of progressive metal, and the accessible energy of mainstream rock. Intricate polyrhythms and ambitious song structures coexist with memorable melodies and subtly-evolving thematic progressions, all delivered with conviction and unmistable vitality. Astronaut Down began as a project of instrumental progressive metal pieces at bassist Joe Morse's senior composition recital at Purchase College in 2002. The chemistry between Joe and guitarist Jeremy Daigle that was immediately apparent from this one-time performance, continued into their inception as a trio, playing shows at venues around Westchester County. Now relocated to New York City, the line-up has filled out as a four-piece with vocalist Keith Bowen and drummer Jeff Palermo.
Marie SchumacherMarie Schumacher: Anytime Soon (4:40)
From her CD "Sometimes At Night" ~ © 2007 All rights reserved.

Marie Schumacher is a songwriter, vocalist, guitarist, pianist and vocal arranger based in Portland, Oregon, who has released three CDs of original acoustic rock music. She is the director of PDX Vox, an a cappella singing program for adults and families. Born and raised in Massachusetts, Marie has also lived in Washington, D.C.; Mexico City; and the San Francisco Bay Area. Her day jobs include teaching, coffee importing, grant writing, and parenting. Sometimes At Night is Marie's third album of original songs. The themes that run through this collection include the magic of night time, the illumination that can occur in the nocturnal hours, the way that maturity shapes the creative process, and the way one piece of art can inspire another.
Kind Of GirlKind Of Girl: Slave To Your Charms (3:15)
From their single of the same name (a CD is upcoming) ~ © 2007 All rights reserved.

Once bepop guitar-playing, now true-to-the-heart-pop, Sissel Olander makes her lyrics and tunes out of the twisted life that comes out of the soul's desire for love. Influenced by great artists such as the Cardigans, Fiona Apple and Garbage, the music of Kind of Girl is an exciting and almost familiar walk down the road - while still remaining refreshing and inspirational. Their debut album is expected in 2007 and they are already having great success on the music site, being the highest positioned Danish band in the top 50 of the "most downloaded music" since December '06. More than 100 radio stations from around the world are playing Kind Of Girl. (Editor's Note: Why should we be any different? ;) )
Linq (Diane K. Lincoln)Linq (Diane K. Lincoln): Victim Of The War (4:00)
From her CD "Fast Moving Dream" ~ © 2006 All rights reserved.

At an age when many look forward to retirement, Linq is kicking it up, cranking it out, and defying stereotypes. FAST MOVING DREAM is fresh, uncompromising, decidedly un-stodgy, and lush with life experience. This unique album reflects a woman who has found her groove: strongly vulnerable, irresistibly passionate, and dynamically humanistic. FAST MOVING DREAM is an electric folk and rebellion rock celebration appealing to Woodstock originals and their children, soul-searching idealists, and anyone frustrated with the current state of the world. This project, produced by June Millington, includes songs about war victims, health care, homophobia, longing for love, celebration, and a tribute to a longtime friend who died too young. June Millington, Julie Wolf, Jami Sieber, Allison Miller, Loren Weisman, and Ruth Davies are among the studio musicians who create soulful, gritty, energetic background to Linq’s silken voice, driving guitar, and edgy themes.
Bradley WestBradley West: These Days (3:51)
From his CD "Slow Train" ~ © 2007 All rights reserved.

Introducing Marion, Arkansas native Bradley West, who selected all of the songs on this debut collection himself and is a co-writer on two of them. Although he left the music for studio musicians to perform on this debut collection, he plays several instruments, including guitar, fiddle and harmonica. Bradley likes to perform songs with “meat” on them, songs that stand up for the common men and women of America and have something to say about what both positively and negatively affects hard working, financially struggling working folks. He is a particularly well-grounded and dedicated young traditional country artist, whose future truly envisions unlimited potential.
