Dan Janisch
Dan Janisch
"A mixed bag of Rock 'n Roll, Twang, Preacher Man, Folk Stories."


"If John Steinbeck had written music, he'd have written music like Dan Janisch..."

(Don Grant, Freight Train Boogie)



"...impossible to fit into a particular stylistic niche..."
(Stewart Mason, All Music Guide)



"He gives broken hearts some lovely places to hide..."

(Falling James, LA Weekly)
Jeremiah And The Red Eyes
Jeremiah And The Red Eyes
Los Angeles based artist Jeremiah (Sammartano) and the Red Eyes started in the Southern California coffeehouses and bars, picking up sounds and ideas along the way and later mixed them up with the song ideas in his head. What came out was a blend of the Delta blues and old folk songs, Tom Waits and the Replacements, some Willie Nelson twang and some good old garage rock and roll - and a whole lot of other things - Delta blues and twangy grooves, one reporter called it. 2004 saw the release of Red Eyed and Restless on Bull Stud Records which had songs played on various U.S. stations including the syndicated show, "Altville", and Chris Morris' Watusi Rodeo on Indie 103.1 in LA - and across Europe. Over the years they have been well supported by the Americana scene in Los Angeles and have shared the stage with Southern Culture On The Skids, Dead Rock West, and Mike Stinson - to name a few - and also David Olney and Tommy Womack in Nashville, where Jeremiah relocated for a spell in 2009.
Drunken Prayer
Drunken Prayer
Drunken Prayer is the brainchild of Morgan Christopher Geer from Asheville, NC. Wood-shedding on a farm with former DP keyboardist Audra Fleming in Northern California around 2006, Morgan wrote and arranged the handful of songs for what would become Drunken Prayer's self-titled debut record. Others in the current fold include Joel Meredith of Blind Pilot on steel guitar and, on loan from The Breeders, percussionist Jose Medeles.


LATEST NEWS: The American Movie Classics channel has picked up "The Demon" and "What Made Me Kill" from Drunken Prayer's first record for promotion.


"...one part the Band, one part Tonight's The Night and several parts sinner's remorse...Bad Seeds-in-New Orleans noir..."
Fred Mills
Harp Magazine

"...a blistering example of bad-assedness."
Alli Marshall
Mountain Xpress
Asheville, NC

"Morgan is the real deal as a frontman, a barking ringleader with chops between Tom Waits and the Butthole Surfers' Gibby Haynes"
Casey Jarman
Willamette Week
Portland, OR

"Like an alt.country Led Zeppelin..."
MastanMusic Hour
Portland, OR

"The songs contain striking lyrics that sweep over and engulf the listener. Pay close attention to those thoughtful words - some of them are very deep and will challenge you."
Brenda Barbee
Roots Music Report

"Why in the name of all that's holy is Drunken Prayer not a massive, national success?"
The Stonewailer
Portland, OR

"There is a primal sorrow in this release that flows like a molten lava, occasionally erupting through the surface of this country-R&B gem...This is saint and sinner stuff full of passion and pain."
Jeff Weiss
Miles of Music
