I am an independent artist with disabilities. I love making music. My cerebral palsy challenges me sometimes but I don’t let it stop me from creating. The music I create helps me express what I’ve been through. I like writing music to help other people not feel alone. I use music to motivate me. I hope when others hear it they’ll say “yes, he may have disabilities but he is trying to let us know something about himself.”

I’ve seen and been through a lot of stuff in my life. I’ve been through obstacles and now I’m trying stay positive and work through pain. I have a language barrier. I use the computer voice to make sure that lyrics can be communicated correctly. I can’t wait to show you what a disabled artist artist can do. I hope you like my songs. Feel free to comment or contact me.  Love, D2THEJ

It's Raining in Here Album Cover
Artist or Band Name: 
Crystal Rose
I work to create genuine musical work linking genres and the subject matters of interconnectedness, electrical musings, the human voice, the every day and the extra. Music gave my places to stay throughout my teenage years throughout a bit of a turbulent upbringing- the music community has always been there for me. While writing this album, I have learned more about how much my mom and her culture, and the spiritual aspect of singing/music I learned from her, is an integral part of who I am. Songs from this album were mostly written and recorded at my Brooklyn apartment, with stems being sent over the internet waves. "It's Raining in Here" speaks to authenticity over perfection- expression is key.

Music Submission, Astasis

Artist or Band Name: 
Astasis

A•STASIS is an addictively grooving, hook rich, prog rock band from Austin, TX. Rooted at the soul of A•STASIS is an appetite for novelty and unlimited artistic expression in the context of an impending culture crisis. Melodic, dynamic, and lyrically dense, A•STASIS doesn’t linger in one playground for long as their songs weave infectious prog riffs with funky pop sequences all while remaining elusively catchy.

Founded by bassist/vocalist, Blaine Matte (Eyetooth, Quartershackle, Entropist), A•STASIS is a melting pot of influences that honorably includes Opeth, Herbie Hancock, Queens of the Stone Age, Stevie Wonder, King Crimson, and (the)Melvins. Produced by veteran guitarist and pianist, Skunk Manhattan (A Good Rogering, Runescarred, Invincible Czars, Quartershackle), A•STASIS will release their debut album summer 2021 featuring Skunk, drummer Eoghan McCloskey (Vex, Aduanten, Obsequiae) and guest saxophonist, Steven Vague. Recorded and mixed at Mesa Recording Studios by Rob Hinton (Michael Jackson, Korn), the video premiere for the first single, “Engage”, will debut on 5/21/21.

Artist or Band Name: 
The Arthur Clark Collective

Sick of bands that only ever split up, Lemmie Bon Jail decided for a new tactic: The Collective! Formed of himself and anyone to weak/lazy to escape his musical grasp, The Arthur Clark Collective have released two albums and two singles. Due to two members being teachers, the Collective have become viral sensations in at least two secondary schools in the East London Area. Oh Yes.

Formed in Romford, an Essex/London hinterland, in 2018 the Arthur Clark Collective attempt to specialise in Punk and anti-folk music. The Collectives influences are Brit-pop, Sonic Youth, Pavement and similar North American artists as well as electronic bands such as UNKLE and Archive.

 Our first Album was released in 2019, containing songs mostly penned by Lemmie Bon Jail, the front man and included a variety of friends (not all musicians) who helped to add parts and ideas. to the mix. 

A second album, 'Middle Class Hero' was released in 2021 featuring yet more collaborations with anyone willing to join up.

Bio

I grew up in Oklahoma, where I got my start as the main songwriter and front man for a nerd-punk band called Love Button.  We toured around the southern USA for a while and almost got signed a couple of times, but then I went off to become a scientist and had to start recording solo.  I’ve continued to make music as my scientific career has dragged me from Oklahoma to Florida, California, Texas, Australia, Germany, and now Okinawa, Japan.  Stylistically my work is very exploratory, with almost every album being a massive departure from the one before.  The uniting theme has always been meticulous songwriting with a unique sort of existentialist humor, focusing on awkward characters trying to find some peace in a world they don’t fit into particularly well.

I’ve released a number of indie pop albums known for their quirkiness (The Scientist, A Series of Tasteful Nudes).  I’ve also made some much more experimental stuff like Son of Strelka, Son of God, which repurposed Obama’s self-narrated memoirs into a story about a dog-headed demigod who rebuilds the world after the apocalypse.  That last one got a lot of international press coverage, and made some top ten lists for album of the year when it came out (including one of the DJs from WFMU, which is about as good as it gets as far as I’m concerned).  

In the spaces between albums I’ve contributed music to some dumb memes that have millions of views, and have appeared on some very popular podcasts including Welcome to Night Vale.  I’ve also made music for films and video games, most recently as alt-folk band Barnaby’s Chair in the wildly popular game Hypnospace Outlaw (which got a lot of critical attention for its soundtrack in particular).

Evergreen (this album)

Due in part to these side projects, Evergreen is my first full album in a while.  It’s an extremely weird one.  It’s essentially the soundtrack to an imaginary musical; a vocoder opera about a crew of malfunctioning robots struggling to bring their cargo of frozen human brains back to life.  It uses that framing device to explore what actually keeps a human being motivated to continue existing.  It finally arrives at the conclusion that it is our relationships to other people that motivate most of us, rather than fear, or the consequences of our actions in the world.  I made it when I was living in Germany and my partner was in Japan; the job market in our field absolutely sucks and so we were forced to be on opposite sides of the world from each other for three years.  That was rough but it’s over now, and we have a place where we can be together indefinitely.  That’s also a huge part of what this album is about: the desire for, and eventual finding of, a feeling of permanence.

Musically this album stutters and beeps and occasionally hovers on the edge of collapsing entirely.  It’s made of field recordings, synthesizers, pianos, and a dozen different types of synthetic voices.  Despite the chaos and precarity of the music I think the lyrics are a big part of it, so I’ve attached lyric sheets as well.  I really hope you like it.

On a side note, the cover art is a reference to the Toynbee Tiles, a mysterious series of street art pieces made by a mysterious figure who was obsessed with a very similar idea.

Hi there, 

       I am happy to announce my first solo album titled "Collective Zero". I've had the chance and time to make this record and create some 'noise' during the lockdown phases. But mainly, due to the Covid-19 situation the world is in, I could not finalize The Protagonist's third album "Act!" with my bandmate in Berlin... which we will once things begin to 'normalize'! 

       We have released two albums with The Protagonist, active collaborations with Gareth Jones, Simon Heyworth, many reviews in media such as Bloomberg News, Yahoo News, Business Insider, etc.   

       I would be thrilled if my songs would be on your Radio playlist.

You can stream the album in its entirety at the streaming link below.
