Over the last couple months we’ve been spending sometime in the studio with Something Collective in an effort to get their first album recorded. The energy in the studio has been high and the music is feeling great. You can expect the same great vibe from the CD as you would from seeing them perform. The album will be available sometime after the leaves start changing colors.
A week ago we had an awesome day in the studio with Max and Luke of Something Collective laying down some killer acoustic versions of some of their songs as well as a few new ones. We’re planning on releasing a small acoustic EP sometime in early January. The acoustic release will hold true to form for Something Collective; spreading good vibes through catchy tunes. This time with an even more live/raw feel. We’ll hit you with an expected release date soon.
Check out this new song from Luke Kinney guaranteed to put a smile on your face. The song features the voices of two lovely, local Santa Cruz ladies, some good vibes and best of all you get to name your own price. Its available for download on our Bandcamp store. We hope this helps you to kick off the summer right.
It’s been a little over a year since Luke Kinney’s self titled EP was released. In that time he has been keeping busy playing shows and writing music both as part of Something Collective and on his own. Now he’s back in the studio, on his way to recording and releasing a full length album.
February 16th marked the first day of studio production as he laid down 5 songs in true Luke Kinney style. The album promises to have the same live; “sitting in the same room” kind of feeling with simple harmonies and catchy guitar lines. Like the EP, this album will touch many different genres but will draw its core strength from folk. The variety adds a little something for everybody. One track even features spoken word from Matthew Mercure.
There is no official release date yet but we hope to have the album out by late spring/early summer, just in time for chilling on the beach or barbequing in the back yard.
Yep its true, we’ve moved our headquarters from Richmond to Santa Cruz. While we love the Bay Area, and will continue to work there, we’ve decided that relocating to Santa Cruz would be beneficial both for us and our artists.
What does this mean as far as our bands and music goes? Not a whole lot other than we’ll be pushing harder and faster to bring you new music, awesome shows, and killer artwork. The scene in Santa Cruz has already been conducive to our growth and we may even be adding more more artists to our roster in the near future (spoiler: we will).
In short the good times and good tunes are continuing on.
