Daniel Bachman is a 22-year-old musician born and raised in Fredericksburg, Virginia. He has been playing what he describes as “psychedelic appalachia” since he was a teenager, releasing small run editions of tapes, CDs and LPs for the past three years, with a sound that evolved from drones and banjos to a now guitar centered focus. Touring off and on since the age of 17, Bachman has managed to cover thorough ground across the US, sharing stages with like minded folk such as fellow Fredericksburg native Jack Rose, for whom he fashioned the artwork for the posthumous release of ‘Luck In The Valley’. His newest effort is the full length LP ‘Seven Pines’, sprung from a year living and working in the city of Philadelphia. The sound results in a combination of homesick worried blues and the ecstatic buzz of fresh experience and a new life in unknown territory. Familiar and known, but also seeking to access memories from lives past, dead and gone.
Seabat is the project of multimedia artist John Also Bennett often in collaboration with musician and film composer Forest Christenson. Seabat explores synthesized sounds and ambient textures aimed to create immersive, cinematic surrealist sound environments. They draw from a range of influences spanning the history of electronic music, from German kosmische, synthesist and film composer Vangelis, Micro-House, contemporary American noise and the avant garde. Seabat has recorded four full length albums, performed nationwide, and recently released a full length LP and DVD of 5.1 surround sound compositions.
Austin Vaughn is a musician who plays the drums and has a day job. In solo situations he makes acoustic music for drumset that celebrates the phenomena of vibration.
