Music Submission, Strawman & The Jackdaws

Artist or Band Name: 
Strawman & The Jackdaws

Strawman & the Jackdaws’ release debut EP ‘FOX’ on the 22nd January 2021

Strawman & the Jackdaws is a Dublin based musical project consisting of singer-songwriter Riccardo Ranzani, drummer Michael Reolon, guitarist Jacopo Stofler and keyboardist and saxophonist Rory Fleming. The anticipated debut EP ‘FOX’ will be released on the 22nd of January 2021, containing the anticipatory yet well-known singles ‘Precious Star’ and ‘Swallow’.

‘FOX’ is a bold opening statement from the band, highly representative of their eclectic nature, a constant within the EP tracks. This eclecticism is always harmonized by joyful and playful tones, even though accompanied by profound metaphors and imaginaries. Distant from simplicity and banality, the band’s first EP's outcome is a set of tracks that are simple to catch and interiorize because of the intense collaboration between the musicians. The EP explores the meanings of the concept and the experience of travelling, driven by the belief that no matter the effort it takes; there will always be something to rely on and have faith in, a symbolic light emerging from shadows.

It was recorded at Flaked Studio with Adam Redmond and Terzo Mondo Studio with Giampaolo Rossi and mastered by Robin Schmidt.

Ranging over-energetic, folkie lines, engaging indie-pop melodies, and distorted riffs, the band’s strength resides in their Live shows and in their ability to entertain the crowd. After performing on Irish, English and Italian stages, the band is already booked for shows and festivals around Europe and Russia in 2021.

Evan and Evan are a guy and a girl with the same name in the indie-folk band Alien Girl. 

When Evan was 9 years old she lived in Kansas. One day she drew a picture of Mars in art class. She told her classmates she was an alien. They called her alien girl. This was her name from then on. 

When Evan was 9 years old he lived in Portland, Oregon. He was a strange child who dreamed of being a mad scientist. This was his dream from then on. 

When Evan got older his room was red, and he lived on a mattress on the floor. When Evan got older she wrote stories about flowers who fell in love. 

Their greatest influences include Shah Jahan, Carl Jung, and Conway Twitty. Auteurs and astronauts by nature, they make all of their music and films together in Northern California.

Music Submission, Love Crumbs

Artist or Band Name: 
Love Crumbs
Bio: Love Crumbs hails from Western and Central Massachusetts. Folk music forged from where blue collar folks mingle with the erudite.
 
Love Crumbs delivers a captivating powerful and controlled female vocal sound over jangly acoustic guitar-themed stylings. The songwriting is a mix of prosaic and abstract ballads - on themes of love, loss, pain, addiction and contemporary social issues.
 
The folks in the band have all overcome varying levels of adversity to give you the crumbs of their love. Some have come from addiction and homelessness into recovery replete with home and family. Some have stared depression and mania in the eyes and come out the other side to tell the tale. All are parents to little ones. When they are not giving their hearts to their husbands, wives, and kids, they give it all that’s left on the stage...the crumbs of their love.
