Chris Okunbor – www.chrisokunbor.net
Blues and Roots Singer-Songwriter Chris O has a strong penchant for constructing music that draws the listener into her story telling, her music jumps out at you and forces your foot to tap or your head to bob. Her rhythm is undeniable, her soul shines, all this backed with a strong work ethic and a hectic gigging and recording schedule.
“Chris O is a solo artist, based in Katoomba, NSW. Singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist, she arrives at gigs carrying her gear like a pack pony ~ juggling dobro, banjo, lapslide, ukes, and plain ole guitars, just a few of the instruments she plays.”
Porch Guitar – https://www.facebook.com/porchguitar
Tom Owens aka Porch Guitar is a favourite here on SLV, his lo-fi improvisational style of guitar playing is a delight to listen to. The name Porch Guitar rings very true,
Tom says, “Guitar Improv on the front porch. Structured as it happens. Sounds of nature. Cars go by. Neighbors wave. Yeah..”
As you hear the music this kind of scene is very easy to imagine, a park out the front, the sounds of birds chirping, and of course Tom noodling away on his front porch.
Amarante – https://soundcloud.com/amarantemusic
Josh and Jysi from Los Angeles form the alternative-folk duo of Amarante, specialising in an ethereal and captivating blend of music which they have recorded themselves. Melding haunting vocals together with an interesting arrangement of sounds to create an open and airy feel, the product is something very easy to listen to.
Featuring airy, guitar driven tunes, Mika succeeds in turning a hobby into art for all to enjoy. Hendrix-esque tones are at the fore, while many tracks are supplemented by a minimalist drum beat to support seriously groovy riffs.
Luna Park – https://soundcloud.com/welcome_to_luna_park
The uplifting and ambient stylings of Luna Park are made to get people moving, heavy synth loops lace their way around a driving drum beat creating a pensive mood that is still absolutely danceable.
