Livia is a singer/songwriter from London, England, with a bit of Italian and French mixed in. Her diverse musical and personal background has inspired her songwriting to incorporate elements of Folk, Rock, Latin, Dance and Magic, while staying true to her love of mainstream Pop with catchy hooks and melodies. Her live show, ‘Livia and the Elementals’, features a dance and light extravaganza inspired by the ancient elements of earth, air, fire and water. Livia worked with award-winning producer Simon Ellis (Britney Spears, Spice Girls) on her debut album, “Journey of an Empath”.
Working as a DIY artist, building the album session by session, and the live show prop by prop and with a pinch of fairy dust along the way the result is a visually rich mixture of music, circus, folk and fable, cabaret and magical theatre. Livia’s journey is an inspirational story of overcoming obstacles to achieve a dream and fulfil a purpose of helping others to heal through music. While touring ‘Journey of an Empath,’ Livia and her Elemental dancers have performed at many magically themed and mainstream festivals around the country and abroad, including Pagan Pride, Witchfest International, The Magical Faerie Festival, Lincoln Steampunk Asylum and the Venice Carnival. Livia is also back in the studio, recording her second album with renowned rock producer Matt Hyde and plans to bring her magical sound to the mainstream.

Throughout the 70s, the band Silver Laughter made a name for themselves by writing catchy, hook laden rock songs with more than a hint of Beatles influence and by touring extensively throughout the United States and Canada. In their prime, tracks from the band’s two critically acclaimed albums and numerous singles could be heard on radio stations across the nation. Sadly, as the 70s drew to a close, the laughter stopped as the group disbanded. In the years that followed, the band has been remembered and celebrated for their wonderful music. 2014 saw a Silver Laughter reunion when the band was inducted into the Iowa Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Their albums and singles have become sought after collectibles, and the band’s amazing catalog of music was reissued on a German label in 2015 by New Music/Green Tree on both CD and vinyl. Getting up on stage again for the Silver Laughter reunion re-ignited the fires of inspiration in bassist / vocalist / songwriter Mick Orton. Together with musicians Tom Kelley and Ricky Zero, Mick has begun a new chapter in his musical journey with his new band The Silvers! Not long after releasing their first CD single, “Running Away”/”Nothing Really Matters”, which also became their first animated video, drummer Glenn Stone joined the band. Within just a few short months, the guys have already assembled an impressive collection of songs that would fill close to two albums and are coming up with new material constantly! Their first album, “After The Laughter”, was released in March of 2016. Most recently, their second animated video of the song, “No More (This Time I Mean It)” was also released on YouTube March 1, 2016. Their first EP of 6 new songs called “End Of Summer” was released on August 31, 2016 along with their third video called “Just Fooling Around”. The fun doesn’t stop there. The Silvers finished their second album, “PLAY!” in March of 2017 with producer, Drew Youngs, a NEW 14 song album. In September of 2017, Drew Youngs replaced Ricky Zero in THE SILVERS who released a 7 song EP called “Another Summer”. They have also been chosen by people associated with “Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” to be featured in a kids’ cartoon series called SILVERS which should be released in 2018!

Dizzy Box Nine is a pop-rock band out of Southern California. They play melodic, radio-friendly pop songs that have nearly instant appeal. The lyrics are clever and tight, and the instrumentation is dynamic and full. Dizzy Box Nine has been influenced by a variety of musical styles, over a broad range of genres-from Blink 182 and MXPX, to the Cars, Train, and Tom Petty. Their music is basic straightforward pop-rock with splashes of pop-punk sprinkled into the mix.
Singer-Guitarist, and band creator, Randy Ludwig, claims that this eclecticism is what helps give Dizzy Box Nine their signature sound. “We have been inspired by all types of music, and this clearly shows in our songs.” There are no fillers here. Randy’s motto is “start fast”. And, these songs seem to captivate, energize, and even, inspire – from the very first second of the record, to the very last one. One thing is clear: the debut CD from Dizzy Box Nine is a well-put together record with something for everyone.
Alyssa Grew up in Westchter County NY – She was deeply inspired by the music found in her family record collection with its extreme diversity from Simon and Garfunkle to Sarah Vaughn to stand-up comics and so much more it became her world. With no formal music education Alyssa’s earliest memories are of writing songs. She began singing her originals and jazz standards in cafes and clubs in NYC when she was nineteen and began to explore her sound – an eclectic mix of jazz, folk, rap, world and soul. Alyssa has continued preforming in NY and beyond and still exploring her sound today – She has recorded 2 full length albums “~within~”, “Queen Annes Lace”, and two five songs albums, “Flow With Me” and “Alyssa Live” along with various singles and re-mixes. Alyssa’s music can be heard on radio stations across the country and Europe.
Indie-pop duo Tiny Fighter are releasing their debut single ‘New Century’. Meeting in Stockholm in 2017, this Australian/ Swedish pair have quickly built a strong live reputation for mixing catchy indie-pop with darker themes and arrangements, led by the enigmatic Therese Karlsson. ‘New Century’ was recorded in Los Angeles and Stockholm with Daniel Rejmer (Ben Frost, Foals, Girls Names) and extends on the more melodic moments from their previous work with bands such as Fire to the Stars and Mid-State Orange.
After relocating to Stockholm from Melbourne in 2016, Therese and Tim came together via some rather fortunate semi-random sampling (i.e. internet band forum) and quickly realised that where Tim was good at starting songs, Therese excelled at finishing them. Their single ‘New Century’ describes the tension many experience between unfulfilled desire and resigning to one’s fate with a drive to take control of one’s destiny and make a difference. The title, ‘New Century’ is meant to suggest reinvention, a personal reinvention – which whilst desirable is not always an easy or straightforward thing to do.
Accompanying the single is award winning directors Kyle V James & Mallori Taylor’s incredible video, short entirely on a 360-degree camera. The video extends on the lyrical theme of reinvention, using the 360-degree camera to distort or reimagine a range of natural and urban landscapes into dream-like exaggerations of their original selves: oceans turn to globes, whole forests morph into a single dandelion as a metaphor for the internal personal changes the song’s main protagonist so desires, but can’t quite seem to obtain. By pairing the music with such wild distortions of the everyday objects and landscapes the viewer is encouraged to look at their own everyday life in a different light and from a different angle – the truth may be right there in front of you, you just need to be more flexible with your interpretation.
