Flux Pavilion is a one man orchestra! With the ability to Sing and play a large variety of instruments it’s obvious that music comes naturally to him. Since first sitting down at a keyboard at the age of six his dream has been to make music that he loves and perform it to people who love it just as much.

Flux Pavilion AKA Joshua Steele has always been influenced by hard hitting dance music in everything that he does and it was only a matter of time before he found his own sound in the dance industry. in early 2008 Dubstep lit this internal fuse and he hasnt been the same man since.

Influenced by the likes of The Prodigy,Basement Jaxx and dubstep pioneer Rusko, Flux loved the high energy madness that dance music was capable of and set about making some of his own in the form of dubstep. Already adept with production skills he was soon off the starting block and his tunes were in swift circulation on the dubstep forum and were becoming a familiar name in the scene. What started of as a bit of experimentation soon became clear that Flux has definitely landed on his feet with the dubstep sound.
Before long labels were banging at his door itching to release his music sohe decided that the world was ready for a bit of Flux Pavilion! Signing tunes to Rottun, Shift, XS Records, Stupid Fly and Dubmented beats and working with artists such as Datsik and Trolley Snatcha, his tunes were dominating the charts and starting to receive alot more interest from the big boys.

Ntype featured his track ‘fucking noise’ on his rinse mix cd and not content with that then signed flux’s track ‘Meathead’ to his label wheel and deal. This was a massive look for flux and got his name out there to all the Dj’s: Rusko, Hatcha, Plastician, Caspa, Skream. Soon enough no club was safe from one of Flux’s bangers and the bookings came flying in all over the UK and Europe.

While his career flourished Flux and childhood Friend Doctor P had also been working on some stuff together. They teamed up with Legendary DJ and drum and bass pioneer DJ Swan-e and Earl Falconer of UB40 and formed the infamous Circus Records. With his own platform for dubstep Flux began to imprint the scene with his sound and was quickly becoming one of the main players in dancefloor dubstep family. His track Voscillate Received ‘Track of the Week’ on Rusko’s radio one takeover which even featured his own vocals and more to date his forthcoming single “I can’t Stop” has just received world record of the week by Radio 1’s Zane Lowe.

Well known for his high energy performances and smashing anthems Flux is now performing all over the globe, and further tours are confirmed for next year in  the U.S, Canada and Australia.

Jelly Roll brings his Addiction Kills tour to New Mountain AVL on June 3! Tickets go on sale Friday 3/31! With his wealth of tattoos, Southern rapper Jelly Roll is an illustrated man. But the ink tells the story of who the onetime gangster was — not who he is now. Today, he is a reformed man, an underdog, a dedicated father to a little girl, an inspiration to those who grew up hustling like him and, most of all, a groundbreaking artist. “My tattoos are not a reflection of who I am at all,” says Jelly Roll. “But they’re a very good description of who I was. I never thought I’d be what I am now.” Jelly Roll is at the fore of the country rap scene, distinguished by his edgy, lived-in lyrics (he first went to juvenile detention when he was only 14; prison soon followed) and a sound he calls “country, rock, white trash rap.” To be sure, it’s a unique hybrid, as informed by the Motown Jelly’s mother played him as a child as it is by the Nashville street rap he listened to in his teens. A gifted singer as well as rapper, to hear Jelly Roll perform songs like the R&B-flavored “Sunday Morning” and the Southern rock of “Bad Apple” is to believe that the county-rap genre is far from a novelty. “My lyrics are very true to who I am. I’m very real, very honest, very straightforward and I’m in an industry where a number of artists are not,” says Jelly Roll, who was born and raised in gritty Antioch, Tennessee, just south of Music City. “I don’t hide anything.” Including his incarcerations for robbery and drugs. Surviving prison ultimately motivated Jelly Roll, an all-too-rare case of the system actually working. But it was when he met composer and producer Jared Gutstadt — aka Jingle Jared, who has worked with artists from Dierks Bentley and Lynyrd Skynyrd to Nas and Chiddy Bang — and his creative team the Jingle Punks that helped Jelly launch a proper career. "He was a white rapper, and I thought, 'I've seen that before,'" says Gutstadt. "But then I heard what he was doing. It was fresh, inventive stuff. I think he and I can create a new sound for Nashville." With the Jingle Punks creative force onboard, Jelly Roll is eager to explore his fresh direction via a new EP. Titled Sunday Morning after his popular day-after anthem, the project picks up where "Kid Rock left off," Gutstadt says. Like Jelly Roll, it’s a combination of all the things that define a man: loving and leaving, winning and losing, and sinning and forgiving. “Since I left prison, I don’t have the kinds of problems I used to have. I’ve changed and so my music is changing with me,” says Jelly Roll. “But the good news is my audience is growing with me too.” And he’s excited for them, along with new fans, to hear his country, rock, white-trash rap. “I’m excited for everyone to hear my music,” he says. “It’s real, it’s honest and, dammit, it’s fun.”

His journey remains defined by an independent drive to evolve as a musician and human, affording him the freedom to create the next song on his own terms. Equally accomplished as a guitarist, singer, and songwriter, Porter’s songs weave a universal perspective about the questions, struggles, and triumphs of human existence. His live shows are guitar-driven events--equal parts grit, soul, and muscle--that are electrifying, dynamic, and wholly original in the way that Porter’s voice blends and fuses with his virtuoso fret work.Porter's recent record, Human Kindness (2015), showcases his acoustic, electric, and multi-string chops, brought to bear in service of a great collection of songs. This album is a driving, tuneful return to the pop sensibilities of his best work that also highlights Porter’s growth as a writer, musician, and producer.In addition to making a life in music, Porter finds ways to make an impact on local and international levels. He is an active supporter of Advocates of Ozaukee, a shelter and treatment facility for victims of domestic violence and abuse in Mequon, Wisconsin. His annual benefit concerts have raised more than $90,000 for this organization to date. Porter also gives his time and talents to helping behind the scenes at First Stage, a world-class Milwaukee-based children’s theatre company. His recent involvement with Kids4Peace International works to bring kids from Palestine, Israel, and the Middle East together with American kids to work towards a dialogue of mutual respect, tolerance, and understanding in hopes that the next generation will have leadership comprised of strong, peaceful voices.

with Ashley Heath
Asheville NC based singer/songwriter Jordan Okrend blends the old school with the contemporary. Growing up in Raleigh NC, Jordan picked up the guitar at age 7 and immersed himself in the music scene performing hundreds of gigs from a young age. From his love of artists such as John Lennon, Marvin Gaye and Bob Marley, Okrend struck upon his own soulful sound; vintage pop imbued with an infectious jazzy, bluesy rock edge and socially conscious lyrics. From the get go Okrends music tended to draw from the social/emotional spectrum which resonated deeply with his growing fan base. Jordan released his first two EPs, "Unpredictable" and "Rising Up", between 2010 and 2012 while attending Berklee College of Music in Boston and supported both releases by performing throughout the East Coast in NC, NY and Boston. He later traveled around Brazil and Hawaii; soaking up the native musical culture which influenced the songwriting for his 2015 release, "World Keeps Turnin". Since settling in Asheville NC in 2016, Okrend has continued with his impressive musical journey. He was a winner in Asheville's Brown Bag Songwriting Competition and was also named as one of the top acts to see at MONDO, NYC . He is set to release a new record in 2017, "Dance By The Riverside" that echoes the conscious sentiments of his musical heroes while building further on his signature soul pop sound. Okrend is excited to get the new music out. "It will definitely be a mix of high energy funk, pop and soul along with the themes of personal freedom, love and unity that I continue to find myself drawn to."As one recent reviewer from Indie Minded wrote With a promising future and nothing but room to continue to develop, singer-songwriter Jordan Okrend is bound to make his mark on the music industry.

Set Me Free, out now on Righteous Babe Records, is Knapp’s second mainstream folk rock release after she left her Grammy-nominated Contemporary Christian Music career behind, returning seven years later with the refreshingly straightforward Letting Go in 2010. While her transition away from Christian music and public coming out as a lesbian have made her a lightning rod for controversy, Set Me Free is an album full not of anger but of love, with intimate arrangements providing the backdrop for stories of romance, friendship, and faith. Coinciding with the release of her candid memoir Facing the Music: My Story on Howard Books/Simon and Schuster, this refreshing new album once again demonstrates Jennifer’s uncompromising willingness to be open in the spotlight.The combined album and book releases have created an expanded platform for Jennifer. In 2015, she toured nationally in support of Set Me Free; presented a musical TEDx talk on LGBT issues of faith at University of Nevada; performed at GLAAD’s Concert for Love and Acceptance with Ty Herndon and Meghan McCain; and wrote about the Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality for The Huffington Post.Set Me Free focuses on how we interact with one another, how we affect others and how other people, places or life events affect us, shaping us into who we are and how we hope to be heard and understood. “Much of this record centers around intimate conversations between two people,” explains Knapp. “Some songs are between lovers, others friends and some who are going separate ways. Each song is a moment of some pivotal point of declaration or need for understanding from one person or one idea to another.”Since coming out as a lesbian — a noteworthy story that made her the featured interview subject of an episode of Larry King Live — Jennifer’s poised willingness to speak on behalf of LGBT people of faith has created a new role for her as one of their foremost advocates. In 2011, she launched the Inside Out Faith series to engage this social justice dialogue. At these presentations, conducted mainly in churches and universities, Jennifer weaves her narrative with her music while sharing candid revelations of her experiences as a gay person of faith. Her memoir Facing the Music furthers the conversation about the importance believing in one’s own story, whatever that may be.

Thunderstruck prides itself in being one of the most authentic sounding AC/DC tribute bands in the world.  The band is fronted by powerhouse vocalist Lee Robinson who was one of the four singers to have auditioned for AC/DC’s Rock or Bust tour when Brian Johnson was forced to withdraw drew to hearing issues.  Axl Rose won the gig, but Robinson walked away with a new vigor and respect for the veteran rockers.  Since 2013 Thunderstruck has blazed a trail across the southeast, playing to sold-out crowds and sharing the stage with artists such as Jack Russell’s Great White and Lynch Mob.

“Rock and roll’s been very very good to me,” Rhett Miller sings on “Longer Than You’ve Been Alive,” an epic six-minute stream-of-consciousness meditation on his life in music. It’s a rare moment of pulling back the curtain, on both the excesses and tedium of the world of a touring musician, and it’s the perfect way to open the Old 97’s new album, ‘Most Messed Up.’

“I wrote that song very quickly and didn’t rewrite one word of it,” Miller explains.  “It’s sort of a thesis statement not just for this record, but for my life’s work.”

To say that rock and roll has been good to the Old 97’s (guitarist/vocalist Miller, bassist/vocalist Murry Hammond, guitarist Ken Bethea, and drummer Philip Peeples) would be an understatement. The band emerged from Dallas twenty years ago at the forefront of a musical movement blending rootsy, country-influenced songwriting with punk rock energy and delivery. The New York Times has described their major label debut, ‘Too Far To Care,’ as “a cornerstone of the ‘alternative country’ movement…[that] leaned more toward the Clash than the Carter Family.” They’ve released a slew of records since then, garnering praise from NPR and Billboard to SPIN and Rolling Stone, who hailed the band as “four Texans raised on the Beatles and Johnny Cash in equal measures, whose shiny melodies, and fatalistic character studies, do their forefathers proud.” The band performed on television from Letterman to Austin City Limits and had their music appear in countless film and TV soundtracks (they appeared as themselves in the Vince Vaughn/Jennifer Aniston movie ‘The Break Up’). Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan told The Hollywood Reporter that he put the band on a continuous loop on his iPod while writing the show’s final scene.

‘Most Messed Up’ finds the Old 97’s at their raucous, boozy best, all swagger and heart. Titles like “Wasted,” “Intervention,” “Wheels Off,” “Let’s Get Drunk And Get It On,” and “Most Messed Up” hint at the kind of narrators Miller likes to inhabit, men who possess an appetite for indulgence and won’t let a few bad decisions get in the way of a good story.

“A few people in my life said, ‘You can’t sing ‘Let’s get drunk and get it on,'” Miller remembers. “I said, ‘What do you mean? I’ve been singing that sentiment for 20 years! I was just never so straightforward about it.'”

It was a trip to Music City that inspired Miller to throw away his inhibitions as songwriter and cut right to the heart of things.

“For me, this record really started in Nashville on a co-write session with John McElroy,” he says. “I really admired his wheels off approach to songwriting, And I liked the idea he had for how he thought I should interact with my audience. He said, ‘I think your fans want you to walk up to the mic and say fuck.’ It was liberating.” It reminded me that I don’t have to be too serious or too sincere or heartfelt. I just have to have fun and be honest. I felt like I kind of had free reign to go ahead and write these songs that were bawdier and more adult-themed.”

The magic in Miller’s songwriting lies in the depth that he lends his characters. Upon closer inspection, the hard partying and endless pursuit of a good time often reveals itself to be a band-aid covering up deeper wounds and emotional scars.

“There’s a lot of darkness hidden in this record,” he explains. “One of the big Old 97’s tricks is when we write about something kind of dark and depressing, it works best when it’s a fun sounding song. So it’s not until the third or fourth listen that you realize the narrator of this song is a complete disaster.”

If that description calls to mind The Replacements, it’s no coincidence. Miller is a fan of the Minneapolis cult heroes, and now counts Tommy Stinson among his own friends and fans. Best known as bassist for the Mats and more recently Guns ‘n’ Roses, Stinson joined the Old 97’s in the studio in Austin, Texas, to lay down electric guitar on ## tracks, elevating the sense of reckless musical abandon to new heights and lending the album an air of the Rolling Stones’ double-guitar attack. It’s a collaboration Miller never would have even imagined in 1994 when the band released their debut.

“We didn’t think we’d last until the year 1997,” Miller laughs. “We thought the name would get a little weird when it became 1997, but we decided none of our bands had ever lasted that long, so let’s not even worry about it. But as it all started to unfold, we realized we could maybe make a living doing this, and we were all really conscious of wanting to be a career band. It was way more important to us to maintain a really high level of quality, at the expense, perhaps, of having hit singles or fitting in with the trends of the time, and I’m glad we did that.”

Twenty years on, it’s safe to say rock and roll has indeed been very, very good to the Old 97’s.

Genre: Psychedelic RockCover: Donation$Show: 10PMAges: 21+Space4LeaseA four-piece psychedelic rock group formed out of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, has reluctantly introduced a new wave of musical seduction. With musical works inspired by lost love, the grace of the unknown, and inevitable life experiences, one could relate the sound of Space4Lease to bands such as Citizen Cope and My Morning Jacket. Each song is comprised of soul leaning vocals, luring guitar melodies, expressive bass lines, and a range of unforgettably eloquent drum patterns - all driven by piano.web: http://space4leasemusic.com/vid: https://youtu.be/K6wsUwkNk2M

In three partsI. Reshuffling the DeckII. Ten Daggers on the TableIII. The SongsI. RESHUFFLING THE DECKDay after day, pencil in hand, always dressed in blue. Never feeling satisfied. Itchy. Incomplete. Attired halfway between a businessman and a janitor, Pokey LaFarge tries to make sense of trouble hes seen and trouble hes been in. This is the Great Why of his unending passion for songwriting. An unquenchable need to be heard in a world where everyone is talking and nobody is listening.The songs on Pokeys transformative new album MANIC REVELATIONS demand your attention. Here, you get the feeling this man is constantly reshuffling the deck in favor of some outcome or other. Each chord, each riff shades the stories he sets up in his lyrics. But make no mistake no matter how the cards lay, he is searching for the purest truth; he loves laying in the muck. Whatever it takes to serve the song. He wouldnt know what to do if his life were any other way.Sit with him over a cup of coffee at The Mud House on Cherokee Street in South City St. Louis, and youll see for yourself: he easily is uneasy, pushing one squalid thought away to make way for another, sometimes darker one. Its not that hes a miserable guy; quite the opposite. To lay it plain: you simply dont get songs like these without becoming very friendly with the darkness in your head, and with the social distortion of the day. These are the currents Pokey dips into to create his songs.In conversation, hell stare right through you as you speak. They call it the Quiet Eye. Its that uncanny ability the best athletes in the world have; its what sets them apart. Pokey has it too. You see this with pitchers in Pokeys beloved game of baseball. A guy can look at a complex scene and instantly focus on what he needs to do to get a strike. In a noisy stadium, theres a focus from the mound to the catchers mitt. Thats the game. In a flash, the ball moves at 90-some-odd miles per hour, and the fate of an entire city hangs in the balance. When that pitchers focus delivers, a game is won and a banged up old Midwestern city like St. Louis is instantly elevated to an all-century high.Taking a sip of his ever-present cup of black coffee (switched out for red wine every day at sunfall), Pokey is the pitcher who breaks his stillness, winds up, and fires off the final strike of a shutout. At the table, he eventually tips his gaze to you, inhales, and launches back into the conversation. In these moments, Pokeys as likely to agree with what youve just said as he is to turn the table upside down.Knowing that music is as influential in todays jagged American culture as the countrys favorite pastime, its powerful to see Pokey locking into and emerging from his Quiet Eye stance. Again, you dont get songs like these without a little fire. And when the conversation turns to the heat that brews in his own belly, Pokey leans in, stares straight ahead, and offers this: The darkness? The anger? It comes out in my singing. With a beautiful lyric and a beautiful melody. It comes out in the passion.All these opinions out there he trails off, looking over his right shoulder at a painting of Woody Guthrie hanging on the wall. Its about getting people to feel something. Other than anger.Plenty of feelings reveal themselves in the 10 forlorn, haunting melodies on MANIC REVELATIONS. Each one of these songs is the culmination of a decade of hard work in what has become something of a bellwether city. And with the release of these 10 songs, St. Louis will have something more than World Series wins to mark a moment in time.But Pokey has no intention of winning any accolades with his music. He just wants to get more at home with the noise in his head. Comfortable would be nice, but nobodys ever heard Pokey speak of a dream of an easy life. Those types of songs are for somebody else to sing. Pokey LaFarge makes good truck out of this thing that he pushes against whatever it may be in a given moment.Thats what the records about: confronting, says Pokey. For me, this whole album is about composing and confronting.II. TEN DAGGERS ON THE TABLEPokey LaFarge is a musician. He is a storyteller. He is a feeler of feelings. He is a narrator of the messy, unkempt American experience. He sits, he watches, he writes. Everything thats worth happening happens in his songs. Like the long line of writers and performers he descends from, music isnt something Pokey does its something he is.This is why MANIC REVELATIONS shines like 10 daggers laying on the kitchen table in his St. Louis home. From that vantage point, in the center of this vast continent, Pokey takes long looks from shore to shore, feeling the direction of social winds, ingesting sights and sounds from all around, observing the news of the day.And so he was ready for the evening when a sociological tinderbox caught fire. Mere minutes from his front door, night after night, social unrest caused everyone in America to stop and wonder which side they were on. In the face of this upheaval, Pokey took to his studio and began writing. Thats how artists deal with uncertainty: they bleed on paper until the pain subsides. Soon, he found that one song led to the next. He couldnt put it down. One manic revelation led to another. In the thrall of it all, an album started to appear in front of him.The manic revelation is the state where artists create, says Pokey. I got to the point in writing these songs where I felt like a house on fire that just kept burning.But long before he caught fire, he started on the smallest stage one could imagine: playing by himself on street corners. He moved to the west coast to follow the ghosts of the Beat writers, and Steinbeck before them. He began to ply his craft in the bitter cold of Madison, Wisconsin; in Kentucky, he learned the mandolin; and in the sweltering humidity of Asheville, North Carolina, he learned the fiddle. Thats where he met a few guys who would urge him to come to St. Louis to play; soon after, they would become his backing band, the South City Three.And now, thousands of shows on four continents later, we find ourselves here, on the eve of release for Pokeys most powerful album.Ive always felt that the live shows were the best representation of our music, he says. Only now do I feel that Ive made a better record than the live performance.This is the one where the style of music recedes, as the foreground swells with evidence of Pokeys observations of pain, joy, confusion. This one is where his artistic character shines. And where we see that artistic blood on the page, unvarnished and raw. MANIC REVELATIONS is the second coming of an artist who, over the past decade, has taken the workaday approach to building a body of work, and a worldwide fanbase. After a decade of struggle, its all paid off here. And its all riding on this album.A lot of things havent gone my way, says Pokey. Ive havent become successful in spite of the things I had to overcome, rather, Ive become successful because of what I had to overcome. Its all made me better. And now theres no going back.True to this statement, there are no lookback songs on MANIC REVELATIONS. This album is all about looking outward, looking forward and weve never seen Pokeys observational craft in a more stark relief. This hasnt happened by chance. Artists who write from real life experience have no choice but to change themselves if they want to progress their art. With this in mind, Pokey has been hard at work pushing out the corners on himself.This album is about confronting yourself, explains Pokey. Its about confronting your city, its relation with the world, and all its people. In the pursuit of making myself a better person, I create better art. Which hopefully makes the world a better place. Still, at times, I need to get away from it all.III. THE MUSICMANIC REVELATIONS kicks off with a cold open.A crack of the snare and an insistent upright bass riff are the clarion call. From there, Riot in the Streets throttles up, ripping MANIC REVELATIONS wide open.Halfway through the song you realize this storywhere the rich and the poor alike line up to riot, or peacefully protest, while TV news anchors somewhat unreliably narrate the sceneis reported judiciously; he isnt swaying the listener to one side or the other.Look, Im an opinionated person, says Pokey. But that doesnt extend itself into my writing. Ive always been an observer. Telling a story isnt always about having an opinion. Its about painting a picture.In Must Be A Reason, people fall into and out ofand back intolove. On this song, and all over the album, he shoves in the crying wherever he can. Not because he thinks its entertaining. Because hes lived it. And he knows that others know this sadness, too. On an album filled with personal and cultural pressure release valves, this tune is the one about the politics of romance.In a relationship, says Pokey, you run out of stories to tell. You run out of excuses. You run out of ways to get her back. Sometimes youre on the precipiceshes getting ready to leave. But I always remember someone saying: the only way to stay together is to fucking stay together.Bad Dreams illustrates a classic wherever you go, there you are story: lovers leave home to travel the world. They want to escape the friction at home. Some call this pulling a geographic. When they return, its clear that changing location didnt help; the real problem is still staring them in the mirror.You realize youre coming home, Pokey explains, to the same problems that caused you to go away in the first place. Its not the city. You cant get away from yourself.Now, if you listen to only one of these manic revelations, it should be Silent Movie. He wrote this one in 15 minutes. 15 minutes! That decade of looking and writing and traveling and playing culminates in this song. And truth be told, weve never heard this kind of song from this guy.Silent Movie is on par with the best social narratives of Nilsson, Campbell, Kristofferson. As a lone guitar line drags the song along, Pokey pulls focus on a kid adorned in headphones on a Chicago El train. He may be on his way to school, or he may be on his way home. Regardless of the position of the sun in the sky, the world outside the windows is too much for this kid to take in. Cover your ears and watch the world go by, Pokey sings, Thats how we survive. A clarinet drizzles a saddening pattern over the entire scene, and we begin to wonder: where are we headed if a whole generation is growing up feeling this way? Shoving in the sadness. The song goes on: Growing up is a scam / The truth is a lie / Better off staying a child / Till the day you die / Stay inside your mind / Or go outside and find a place to hide.The song is about shutting out the noise, says Pokey. Coming up with your own soundtrack, in this country where theres more questions than answers, it seems.Never feeling satisfied. Always dressed in blue. Diving into the darkness. Turning the table upside down. Wherever you go, there you are. Fucking stay together. Better off staying a child. This album is an epoch for Pokey LaFarge. You feel it all over these 10 revelations.Now Ive found my groove, says Pokey. I dont have to overcompensate anymore. Nobody looks and sounds like me. And Im OK with that.END
