The singer-songwriter-cellist is planning a Sept. 22 release for her ninth album of original compositions, but now our readers can get a preview right here. She hit a peak with her last originals release, and there’s no letdown with this one. It’s a masterpiece.
The band will perform live and in-person on Friday, Jan. 26, 2024 at The Center Theater at California Center for the Arts in Escondido, California. It will be their first live concert since the start of the pandemic.
The chap hop maestro is out with his latest album, a 15-track opus entitled Professor Elemental and His Amazing Friends 3. It’s the last part of a trilogy featuring some of his favorite collaborators. He also released a music video.
Unwoman and Mr. B The Gentleman Rhymer are out with new albums, though in Unwoman’s case it’s a free pre-release version. Also: The Cog is Dead has a new single and Steam Powered Giraffe is crowdfunding a vinyl release of MK III.
Costume designer Laura Meyer is back on the crowdfunding platform, this time with a Victorian-style playing card deck. Meanwhile, Scott Helland of Frenchy and the Punk has launched a campaign for a new Guitarmy of One solo album.
The Art of Professor Elemental will showcase the chap hop maestro’s comics, novels, art prints, album art, and other visual works. It will also feature art from his merchandise plus unpublished sketches and original pieces created for the volume.
