‘Just when you think great guitar music is on its way out, there’s always a track or two that keep you holding onto the thin threads that represent today’s indie-rock scene. Gold Connections’ new track “Icarus” is a solid reason to clutch hold of the great roots of guitar music, and to keep fighting for it to stay alive.’

The Shana Blake Band at The Gin Mill
Jun 30 @ 10:30 pm – 11:30 pm

The Shana Blake Band is an innovative new take on the old soul cover band. The ensemble hails from Charlotte, North Carolina and features singer/songwriter Shana Blake (The Near Misses, Wavy Space, Tesser), veteran guitarist Keith Shamel (Virgo Musik, Daily Soul), bassist Dave Eatman (Bellyful, Automatic Chi) and drummer/percussionist Scott Newell (Vonce, Justice League). The expressive vocals and rich textures of the instrumentation fuse coherently to create a sound that’s as smooth as honey, with a hint of R&B, funk, reggae, southern rock, gospel, country, jazz and the blues. The repertoire covers the gamut from emotionally-charged ballads to energetic, danceable grooves. The song choices are anything but ordinary and, along with the original compositions, appeal to a broad spectrum of listeners. An evening with Shana Blake & Pivotal Soul is like a breath of fresh air. Funky fresh air.

Lisa De Novo at Growler USA
Jul 7 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Lisa began singing and songwriting at a very young age. By age 10, she had 3 albums handwritten in journals. She started performing at community outreaches through music, drama, and dance, then branched out to open mics and solo gigs. “I’ve been in love with music for as long as I can remember. I tried out different career paths, but the only thing that felt right for me was music. Music is a powerful thing. It allows you to get things off your chest while connecting with others on a very deep level.”

 

Lisa’s influences include Amy Winehouse, Florence and the Machine, Foster the People, Lights, Ed Sheran, Above and Beyond, Odesza, and Coldplay. In October 2016, she released her first solo EP the Stars Align – now available on itunes and spotify. She has done several electronic dance music collaborations with DJ’s all over the world. The songs have more than 300,000 hits on youtube. 

 

The alternative pop/rock band – Lisa De Novo Band – is made up of singer-songwriter Lisa De Novo, lead guitarist Zach Willard, bass player Michael Lanigan, and drummer Mitch Moore. “We’ve officially been a band since April 2017 after I asked the guys to join me at Shakedown Festival. We could tell after the first time we jammed together, that we instantly clicked. The guys heard my songs and added their own unique twists to them! My jaw dropped and I knew we had to make an album.”

The Big Bang marks Lisa De Novo’s first full-length studio album. “Recording was a very difficult process. There were so many setbacks like losing my voice from late night gigs and early morning studio sessions as well as struggling to make time to write and practice.” Lisa worked hard to complete the album with a packed schedule, working more than 60 hours a week. In order to fund the album, she taught music at two different preschools, worked a studio job, hosted open mic nights, played shows, and led worship at her church—with little or no time off. Despite the personal sacrifices and recording challenges, Lisa embraces the art form of the recording process at its core. “Guitar takes were the hardest because there are so many ways to strum a G chord! The harmonies were the most fun because I was able to experiment with new vocal sounds and sing notes I never knew I could sing.’

 

The Big Bang Album is a unique blend of pop, soul, and alternative rock. Combining Mitch’s metal drum background, Michael’s funk bass techniques, Zach’s progressive rock guitar style, with Lisa’s sweet yet soulful voice, the album evokes a truly organic sound. The album includes 7 full band songs, including “Not Giving Up,” “Cigarette Love Song,” and the crowd favorite “Monkey See, Monkey Do.” There are also 3 acoustic songs that feature different instruments giving the album an exciting dynamic vibe.

 

Please join them for the Big Bang CD release show on 5/5/18!
