Music Submission, Jamie Woodfin Jr

Artist or Band Name: 
Jamie Woodfin Jr

My name is Jamie Woodfin Jr and I am a solo musician born and raised in Elkhart, Indiana. I moved to Louisville, Kentucky in 2014 to pursue my music dream. I started playing the guitar when I was 15 and fell in love with songwriting around the age of 18. I have always been inspired by and loved Classic Rock and Blues guitar. My first concert was Aerosmith and from that moment in November of 1998 I knew that playing the guitar was what I wanted to do with my life and I have been on the pursuit ever since. My first guitar was a silver Aria Pro that my brother in law bought for me and I was so proud of it that I left the tags on the headstock for the entire first year I owned the guitar. My Dad taught me how to form open chords and gave me a good foundation for playing. I checked out every book about the guitar and music theory that I could from the Elkhart Public Library. Teaching myself from the books, a lot of what I read was confusing and over my head at the time, but I continued to learn and practiced night and day. To my parents dismay, I ended up dropping out of high school in 2001 so that I could devote more time to practicing guitar around the clock. In 2003, armed with a hand me down Line 6 amp, a cassette recorder and a stereo for playback, I began to craft my own expression of rock. I spent all of my time making tapes and honing the songs that would later become my first CD release. In 2005, I bought a Zoom Palmtop Studio which I used to record my first CD "The Realization of Life" and also used it for my second CD "Innovation Never Phelt So Good". Just before the end of 2005 I was able to achieve a dream of hearing my music on the radio when 103.9 The Bear played a song of mine during their Homegrown Hour. With stars in my eyes, I set out to cross off another bucket list item and I performed on an episode of OpenStudio which aired on PBS in January of 2006. I wanted to take my understanding and comprehension of music to the next level so I attended college at the University of Indiana South Bend later that year and that's where my passion for recording really took flight. They taught me about computer based recording programs and opened my eyes to the digital recording world. I spent the next few years learning all I could about home recording and created my own home studio where I record the instruments and vocals for my songs. In September of 2014, I moved to Louisville, Kentucky where I finished recording the songs that make up my third album. I released "Tha Jams' Rock" through CDBaby.com on January 27th, 2015. Later in 2015, I took to the stage for my first live shows in Louisville at Third Street Dive and then at Lettersong Calligraphy and Art Gallery. In September of 2015 my album "Tha Jams' Rock" was added to WCHQ 100.9 fm and garnered spins on the radio in Louisville. On July 23rd, 2016 I played at the HomeGrown Heroes Festival in Louisville, Kentucky that was held at The New Vintage. This was a dream come true as it was the first time I had my name on a concert ticket. On July 28th, 2017 I performed at Tim Faulkner Art Gallery in Louisville, Kentucky as part of "The Radiomen Return to Louisville" concert. Throughout all of 2017 and most of 2018 I was writing, recording and mastering my newest album "Synchronized Noise" which I feel without a doubt is the best I have ever created. The lyrics in these songs chronicle the last few years of my musical journey and mindset as I transitioned from practicing in my bedroom to becoming a stage ready performer. The music I wrote for these tracks have elements that incorporate Rock, Pop, Hip Hop, Punk and a pinch of Metal. I really enjoy most all musical styles and want to create songs that are diverse and I feel that my new album "Synchronized Noise" does a great job of expressing my musical creativity. I've partnered with AWAL for distribution and am very excited to get to work promoting my music. With an eye to the future I look forward to more live performances and recording material for my fifth release that is slated for 2020.

Music Submission, Harry Edohoukwa

Artist or Band Name: 
Harry Edohoukwa

Dallas native, Harry Edohoukwa is rooted in melody and committed to innovation. Raised on Jamaican smooth stylist Beres Hammond and Afro-reggae messenger Lucky Dube, Harry follows his mentors by using tuneful, personal deliveries to convey his purge of emotion and insight, whether it be hyped or brooding energy. His lyrics paint a vivid canvas of his life’s journey through triumph, agony, and personal lessons.

Family and immersion in the present moment with others are focal points for Harry’s daily life. His parents emigrated from Nigeria many years ago in pursuit of creating a different landscape for their children than what they were presented with. A very tough move for them to make and adopt to a completely different lifestyle, language and general societal expectations. Even though he was born and raised in Dallas, Harry holds true to his roots and family values.

However, his road to becoming an artist has not been an easy one. His parents, having sacrificed so much for their kin, expect a career path of stability and respectable wages, such as a doctor or engineer. For Harry, his heart has brought him down a different road. While it has been a struggle not only internally, but also with his parents, Harry knows that these challenges of life purpose and parental support exists in many other people. He is here to share his story and triumphs, hoping to inspire and challenge others to face their moments of growth head on with fierce energy.

Named by the Austin Chronicle as one of this year’s Must See Artists at SXSW, Harry headlined the Hotel Vegas stage with Jackie Venson and White Denim, as well as headlining KUTX’s premiere Austin Hip-Hop showcase’s SXSBREAKS and Love Lockdown. Becoming one of Austin’s premiere artists in under a year, Harry has expanded nationally with shows at Los Angeles’ Peppermint Club, nearly sold out show in Dallas' Double Wide and at Denver’s biggest music festival called The Underground Music Showcase.

On December 11th, his debut album titled, Fire on the Mountain was released. The album, speaks about the human mistakes he has made, in fact the mistakes that we all have made. He voices the small light of hope that exists in each of these mistakes that propel us into being excited about the present moment and the future moments to come. Harry falls into this feeling after his mindset shifts from focusing on the mistakes made and self-disgust to learning and self-love.

Music Submission, Krachwerke

Krachwerke Illusion of Evolution album cover
Artist or Band Name: 
Krachwerke

We are very proud to present our first album, 'Illusion of Evolution'!

This is an eight track album and features heavy riffs and melodic overtones. This album is a labour of love to create great guitar tones, bouncing riffs and rhythms without being melancholic. The album was written, recorded and mixed by Krachwerke. It draws from many stoner, metal and Doom genres but tries to not 'sound' like any other band currently in the scene.

We hope the tracks jump genres and have something for everyone who appreciates the heavier things in life.

Overall the album is dedicated to our society, politics, evolution and our inherent failures as human beings. Even with our advanced society and the ability to reach space and theorise our universe, on a basic level we have not yet evolved far enought to look after each other or our planet.

Without lyrics the album allows us to reflect in our own way about issues that affect us all.
