"Deborah Crooks pours stiff shots of brains, soul and guts into her compositions..."
Singing about faith, love and loss, Deborah is an intimate and edgy artist whose work is dedicated to peace and the process of liberation. With lyric-writing skills are honed by a lifetime of writing, world travel and study of yoga and Buddhism, she's also widely published as an essayist, journalist and poet. Her songs haves received national airplay and been featured on compilations including the Java with Jahvalin Indie Artist CD 2005 ("You Are Home" DCrooks/B.Z. Lewis) and Indie Music For Life Compilation (2007), and the RockerGirl Discoveries CD ("Dream Me" from her first EP "5 Acres" 2003). Deborah has appeared at the 2006 Millennium Music Conference, the 2005 RockerGirl Magazine Music Convention, during SXSW week in Austin, TX, Sunset Junction, the California Music Fest and was a featured performer at the 2007 Harmony Festival. She's also performed at the Grey Eagle in Asheville, NC, Arlene's Grocery in New York and the Knitting Factory in Los Angeles. In 2008 she returned to the studio with producer Ben Bernstein (formerly of New Monsoon) to release a full-length CD "Adding Water to the Ashes" which is receiving national and international airplay. Oft compared to Mazzy Star, Chrissie Hynde and the Cowboy Junkies, her sound draws on equal parts rock and roll, the blues and the songwriter tradition. In early 2009, she participated in the 2009 RPM Challenge, co-writing a new collection of original blues tunes with another San Francisco songwriter, Alex Walsh, some of which was released as an EP in Fall 2009. The recipient of a BayBridged Recording Grant, she released an EP "It's All Up to You" in Spring 2010.

AOEDE'S STORY: Once upon a time, way back in Greek mythology, there was a muse named Aoede (A-E-D). She was the first "muse of song" way before the 9 celebrated muses we know and love. And I, Lisa Sniderman, singer-songwriter for Aoede, chose this name both to inspire you and to remember to continually be inspired...I draw inspiration from my own life experiences and many muses and aspire to transfer this inspiration to you. When you listen to my songs, expect compelling stories of love, loss, life, and longing-intended to take you, shake you and wake you. It's About YOU and your connection to me-in ways that make you feel and experience those parts of yourself you may have forgotten about. Maybe after listening, you are inspired to live life a little more fully or feel something.

Artist - Wensday

Wensday is an exotic young woman of contrasts: she's been a body piercing artist, a jazz singer and a rocker – and Associate Director of All Children's Theatre in her hometown of Providence, Rhode Island. A graduate of NYU and a student at Oxford University, Wensday is covered in eloquent artistic tattoos on more than 50% of her body.
Multiple hit songwriter and legendary guitarist DICK WAGNER (Alice Cooper, Lou Reed, Kiss, Aerosmith, Air Supply) produced TORCH ROCK™ and wrote or co-wrote all 13 tracks of the TORCH ROCK™ album. Wagner plays lead guitar throughout the CD; and he has assembled a brilliant group of musicians, including Fred Mandel (Elton John, Queen, Alice Cooper), Bobby Flores (Grammy winning arranger and Country Instrumentalist of the Year), Nils Lofgren (Bruce Springsteen), to record Wensday's musical debut.
"After a long time trying to figure out what style I do best, I truly get to do it all on Torch Rock," says Wensday. "I think the album conveys that I'm a singer, first and foremost... Connecting emotionally with people is the most important thing to me."

Group - Pacifika
Track 1 - Me Cai
Pacifika's global fusion works precisely because it is not a fusion. There is no sense of trying to blend one thing with another; this is the work of three musicians, coming from Peruvian, North American, and Barbadian families, for whom rock, Latin, Caribbean, hip hop, and jazz are all part of a single international musical language – a kind of musical Esperanto. Singer Silvana Kane is from Peru; guitarist Adam Popowitz is from Canada; bassist Toby Peter grew up in Barbados. Using the Pacific city of Vancouver as a base, they have set out to create music that reflects their shared interests in Western pop and the traditions of South America, West Africa, and the Far East. The rest of Canada has been paying attention: last year Pacifika was named one of the "Bands of the Year" by the CBC, and they've been regulars on national television in their adopted homeland. Over in the States, Asuncion was singled out by critics as a "best of the year" on amazon.com, i-tunes, NPR and many other prestigious outlets and tracks from the record were licensed for use in a variety of films and television programs like HBO's red hot, True Blood. With Supermagique, they are poised for international success.
