DROP ALIVE - Metal / Rock

My name is Simon, I' m an independent Italian songwriter.  "Drop Alive", my first musical experiment, is a self-produced album that came out in 2007.  On it I sang/played everything but the drums, which were recorded by my good friend and workmate Antonio "Ardog" Ricchiuti. 

Much to our surprise, Drop Alive's music has reached people from all over the world, thanks to podcasters, the music press, and many websites such as the above-mentioned.
But most of all t
hanks to music lovers like you!  Right now I' m recording a new project which will be unveiled later this year, still producing everything myselfIt will be once again available to you as a free download!

I hope you' ll get in touch and show your support.

Much love!

DAVE ARMO - Acoustic / Folk Rock / Rock

Dave Armo was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. At the age of 5, his parents gave him a Bruce Springsteen tape for Christmas which inspired Dave to become a musician and writer. His songwriting has become an endless endeavor which continues to produce new sounds for an ever-expanding catalog that is marked by themes of hope and redemption. Fans are known to bring homemade cookies to his live shows, which is something Dave does not understand, but greatly appreciates. In 2004, he released his debut album "Late Night Conversations." Shortly thereafter his song "Mercy Me" was selected to be included on Quickstar Productions' compilation of up and coming West Coast Songwriters. (as compiled on the bands website)

There is a part of the population that is yearning for what is true in this life. People that WANT to wake up from the coma of illusion that has been forced upon us by many external forces. Can it be possible anymore in a world of increasingly forced and processed thought, that music SHOULDN'T be made and tested for the sole reason of becoming a product to sell to the masses?

A group of people that came together to break out of this mediocrity and suffering who are not afraid to take chances on any level--Adventurous song structures, diverse & eclectic sound, going wherever the music takes them but still keeping focus on melody and emotion--A group of musicians fully engaged in pushing the evolution of music while still keeping a solid footing in what has come before.

Four individuals that bring every conceivable emotion that is in ones soul to the music they create...They go by the name....REDWATER. In the simplest sense, they are a rock n' roll band that has an undying drive to create & to explore. There are no limits, and that's the way they like it.  (as compiled on the bands website)

GRAND ASTORIA - Psychedelic / Stoner / Punk / Heavy Metal

Tripped out psychedelic fuzz rock having sex with heavy metal.

THE GRAND ASTORIA was formed in April 2009 by guitarist and singer Kamille Sharapodinov and guitarist Igor Suvorov from Saint-Petersburg. Their previous bands gave them lots of live gigging and studio recording experience. So, it took his new band only a few months to produce the debut eponymous album and win the audience in both Russian capitals with explosive, loud and fuzzy music which they billed as "psychedelic stoner punk". For music samples and booking please visit THE GRAND ASTORIA MyspaceMusic page. (as compiled on the bands website)

PARKER HOUSE AND THEORY - Big Rock & Roll Dance Party

Explicitly diverse, often misclassified, Parker House and Theory mashes rock, funk, pop and soul, oozing with energy and smacking you in the face with charisma. Eccentric in nature, personality is always center stage. What started in the clubs and colleges around Boston has grown beyond the New England market to the entire Northeast and Midwest thanks to relentless touring and an organic grassroot...s buzz. A commanding stage presence and limitless energy backed by catchy hooks and a tight dynamic make it impossible for anyone to stay seated at a Parker House show.

Parker House and Theory's sound lives in the alleyways between the restrictive structures of modern genre classification. These aren't dark and dangerous alleyways, they're spaces slammed wall-to-wall with bright flashing head turning neon lights.

Parker House and Theory should really find a shorter name. They know you will learn it eventually because night after night they crank out unforgettable performances chock full of energy. They are one part soulful bouncy pop, one part bluesy-funk, two parts personality. Parker House’s signature grooves and bursting melodies will seep into your soul. (as compiled on the bands website)

CHON TRAVIS - Organic Harmonies & Driving Rhythms

Hailing from Ukiah, CA, the town that brewed AFI and Tiger Army comes a new sound from former Love Equals Death frontman and songwriter Chon Travis, produced by Chon and Jamie McMann (NOFX, Good Riddance, Lagwagon).   With 7 releases from his first band Loose Change already under his belt Chon hooked up with Love Equals Death in 2003, the band recorded a four-song EP, 4 Notes on a Dying Scale, for Popsmear Records and started making a name for themselves around the Bay Area. The next release was The Prelude it came out only internationally in July 2005; The Hucklebuck EP released in the U.S. the following month and soon after the band so impressed punk rock icon Fat Mike with their live show that he signed Love Equals Death to Fat Wreck Chords releasing the bands full length "Nightmerica". Through out all of this in, what little down time he had, Chon consistently worked on songs for his future solo project.

Being a solo artist has always been in his plans. In January of 2009 Chon announced his departure from Love Equals Death, the long road Chon had traveled has lead him to this point. "It's the most challenging and mentally rewarding", says Chon about working on his upcoming release, “I'm excited about the possibilities of this solo venture. There are no ceilings or margins and I can't wait to share my interpretation of life with you”. Setting Chon apart from other artists of his generation is his songwriting he has a knack for writing honest hooks and melodies, driving rhythms and organic harmonies that are immediately infectious.

HONEY WHITE - Alternative / Progressive / Rock

Honey White has been inflicting themselves upon the unsuspecting public ever since the brothers Bryn and Keir DuBois recruited guitarist Brian Wolff and drummer Bill Fedderson to help them mash together rock, roots, punk, and reggae into a unique mix of expansively epic noise. Their debut demo My Band Rocks was praised by the Santa Barbara Independent as "some of the best music to come out of Isla Vista", and then after unloading three self-produced live albums in as many years, Honey White released a full-length studio album of crushing power and sweet release titled How Far Is The Fall. Previously based in Santa Barbara, the group is now scattered around the Golden State. (as compiled on the bands website)

Why the Song Butcher ...

So why The Song Butcher ?
My friend one day came to me with a cartoon from guitar player magazine that showed a bum on the streets playing a guitar. The guy walking by was supposedly a Guitar institute student whose caption read " Who's that butchering those chords ?', Finalizing the piece was the statement. Know your teachers.
As a songwriter I've had some success but I can't play a clean chord, nobody wants to be in a band with me and I can't sing, but write I do. Thus, I'm The Song Butcher. So there ya go.
