JoosTVD 2016 Open Up My Parachute


Joost Van Dinther's (JoosTVD) 12th digital release finds The Vanished Dutchman in an inviting, dancing mood. You have to move to the adventurous groove as Funk, R&B and Latin and Pop are often mixed together. Still balanced out by the melodic to please the heart. Contrasting in happy (slapstick, humor (irony), energetic, exotic) and sad (dreamy, melancholic, epic). All conceived in an organic mix of colourful arrangements. Sing these songs in the shower (with or without a parachute)!


Thank you very much Joost Van Dinther for the kindly permission to share this album!

Orfium - New Artist Community


After experiencing many frustrations with SoundCloud, misleading billing tactics of ReverbNation, and the lack of audience engaging features for non-artist users on Bandcamp, we decided to solve the problems by creating Orfium.

It's an open free hosting platform and social marketplace for musicians, and a music discovery and listening platform for fans. Content providers are in complete control of how their music gets heard with no long-term contracts, and all services simply offered non-exclusively whenever possible, period.

If you currently have music on SoundCloud you can simply have it all imported to Orfium automatically to make the switch simple. See below to learn more about what we do and start uploading today:

If you have any suggestions we would love to hear them. Please drop us a line at support@orfium.com and your feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Baskerville Jones 2016 So Right


Born in Nashville, Tennessee, soul-singing Baskerville Jones left her hometown and moved to Los Angeles to pursue her musical aspirations. She began gaining attention doing background vocals for prominent artists and touring and performing with seven-member ensemble The Rebirth, all the while forming musical partnerships that landed her on stage and screen nationally and internationally.

In 2012 she was featured on the single "Born to Flow" from Morehouse Records recording artist Groove Junkies, which made the Top 20 on Soulful House Music Charts. As a lead vocalist of the soul, jazz & funk fusion band The Rebirth, Baskerville's vocal contributions are interwoven in the band's sophomore album "Being Thru the Eyes of a Child." Their single "This is Coming To?" landed in the top 5 of UK Soul Charts, which kicked off the success overseas of the album.

Performing on stages in Singapore, Central America and the UK as well as the United States, over time Baskerville Jones has developed a distinctive style and stage presence, and her high-energy performances are often remembered for her visual and vocal interpretations of song and lyric – not to mention she plays a mean tambourine. In 2015, radio personality and entertainer Cayman Kelly coined the phrase "tambourine twerking" to describe Baskerville Jones' performance at the Capital Jazz Fest in Washington D.C.

Over time, she has acquired a slew of credits, thanks to her work with an eclectic mix of artists on stage and in the studio such as R&B artists Heather Headley and Chrisette Michelle, gospel artists Dottie Peoples & Richard Smallwood, international acts Arman Hovhannisyan and Harout Balyan. In 2012, she had the honor of performing with one of her major musical influences, Sly Stone of the pioneering 70's funk ensemble, Sly and the Family Stone. Among Stone, Baskerville counts Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Yolanda Adams, even the folk and country of her Music City roots among her immediate influences. Her voice evokes the pure soulful roots of early rock n' roll as well as the smooth sounds of R&B.

After more than a decade of singing to support projects of her friends and colleagues, her first solo project, the Mile 1 EP, is a vehicle to acquaint her audience with the artistry that truly is Baskerville Jones. This stripped, lyric driven introduction shows her range and versatility as a singer and depth as a solo artist – a softer, sweeter departure from the funky homage that is her band The Rebirth. Baskerville Jones' EP Mile 1 is slated for release May 3, 2016.

Clay Melton Band 2016 Stop & Listen


As live performances go the Clay Melton Band simply blows audiences away. Front man Clay Melton shreds away any doubt that this is anything less than a stellar performance. Just as the saying goes, “you either is or you ain’t” and the Clay Melton Band is. Clay and the band have performed at The House of Blues, Warehouse Live, Fitzgerald's, Dosey Doe, and the famous Continental Club. On the festival side they blew the audience away at the Dallas International Guitar Festival and have performed not once but three years in a row at the Conroe Cajun Crawfish Festival.

In fact they have captured their riveting live performance on their rocking new EP “Stop & Listen”. The new release reveals the many different shades of their unique style of guitar driven rock n roll. But it doesn't stop there as the band has just posted their latest music video "Tonight" on their website and it captures the high energy of seeing CMB perform one of their most rock n roll tunes on the EP.

Chrystyna Marie 2015 Loaded Gun (Single)


A single for your consideration from Canadian-born blues/pop songwriter and vocalist Chrystyna Marie entitled "Loaded Gun". Although she has a long performance history and has been represented by several labels, Chrystyna decided to go it alone in order to get the sound she wanted.

About the new material, Marie says "Breath is life, and life is music. I wanted to create music from personal experiences and true emotions. Something the everyday person can relate to and build strength from having been exposed to it. With a raw and gritty feel to emulate these experiences and emotions".



Originally hailing from Toronto, Crystyna Marie sings with a powder keg voice over a cocktail of grungy blues and pop. The classically trained Canadian-born singer has supported Ontario acts and been featured as a demo singer on indie labels from as young as 18 years old.

Marie has taken first place in various categories in the Kiwanis Music Festival 2 years in a row. She's taken lead roles in local community plays; West Side Story as Maria and Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. Over the years, she has racked up a long list of smaller roles in music videos, television and was also the lead singer in an LA founded pop group called Greencat. Writing and releasing her own music, with her own unique voice, however, is where her true passion lies.

Believing the classics are just as essential as modern favorites, she finds musical inspiration in everyone from Janis Joplin, Ottis Redding and Etta James to Selena and Christina Aguilera.

Although Crystyna has been represented by several independent labels over the years, she decided that in order to shape the sound she wanted, releasing music on her own was absolutely necessary. Her first solo single, "Loaded Gun", is proof that this was the right choice, revealing the first taste of Marie's gritty take on the blues. The EP is due to be released on Feb 29, 2016.

About the new material, Marie says "Breath is life, and life is music. I wanted to create music from personal experiences and true emotions. Something the everyday person can relate to and build strength from having been exposed to it. With a raw and gritty feel to emulate these experiences and emotions".

Jas Patrick 2015 Inky Ovine

Here is the bluesy Americana magic of Nashville's Jas Patrick. Wholly authentic and stripped back to the core Jas Patrick has already been able to snag endorsements from a variety of gear companies. Bringing in touches of British rock to accentuate an already iconoclastic sound, his new record, Inky Ovine, is the product of years of hard work – marking Jas Patrick's greatest statement to date.


Having started playing drums when he was four years old, Jas Patrick was already on the road at the tender age of 18. Nowadays he runs his own label, Tiny Lion Records, with his wife. DIY to the core and wholly dedicated to an earthy rock sound Jas Patrick understands the spirit of the music and when he unleashes his potent sounds it is impossible to deny their sonic triumph.
