Sure. A lot of guys in your college dorm picked
up a guitar for the first time. They strummed Dylan covers and tried to woo
the ladies. Chad Mills may have been one of those guys —
The difference was that Mills unburied a gift during
those college days. It turned out, this kid could write…. And sing…
And play. Never claiming to be a guitar virtuoso, Mills just knew he loved
music — making it, sharing it — and his music has grown exponentially
each year thereafter. As a husband, father of three, and full time civil engineer,
he still somehow manages to play an average of 120 live shows a year. That,
my friends, is passion.
While Mills has clearly grown into his
own style, he freely lets his music reflect the ebbs and flows of his personal musical
tastes of the moment. Listen to his albums and you’ll find a pensive
acoustic crooner on one track, a bluegrass tale-spinner on the next. Toss
in a soulful sociopolitical commentary and you’re starting to scratch the
surface of Chad Mills. Like Indiana weather: not sure you dig this song?
Wait five minutes. It’ll change.
But make sure to listen.
This singer’s gifts are his words. Undeniably. There will be a
line — a song — an album — that resonates with you. Chad Mills
was down the hall in your dorm. Now he lives in your town and plays at your
Mars or the Moon is giving, not only the music
world but, the thinking world a glimpse into the mysteries and intricacies of love
with their stellar debut album The Price of Love.
Mars or the Moon is the brainchild of musicians
Joe Hart and Lani Williams. The duo began writing together before adding prolific
percussionist Lenen Nicola.
Hart named their project after describing his musical
experiences to a friend. His radio was his salvation that sounded like transmissions
from another world like Mars…or the moon.
The group’s debut album is a hearty slice
of Singer-Songwriter, Roots Rock, Psychedelic Folk Americana with a hint of Soul.
The trio is often joined
on stage and in the studio by keyboardist Kevin Silva, bassist Roger Osburn and
drummer Glen Hopkins
The Yellow Kites are
Kendall Ludwig (Indianapolis folk-rock artist and from the U.S. band, The Stories
of Clockwork) and Erina Ludwig (guitar and vocals). The husband and wife duo have
brought together the sounds of classic folk from America to Ireland to East Africa.
From upbeat humour-laden songs to those with reflective lyrics played out in their
voices and interwoven with the
dulcimer and guitar; their music has brought much needed diversity in a heavily
The band’s name comes from the feeling you get
when wind tickles your bare arms on an autumn day. This coupled with the laughter
of children playing and a love for the colour yellow, The Yellow Kites simply hope
to reintroduce the love of music, sound, life and people back into places where
it’s gone missing.
The Yellow Kites have played shows in London,
Indianapolis and Pohang, South Korea and are currently finishing up their first
See you Friday !
