Major Changes Coming to Indie Music Bus

By |2018-05-31T08:20:41-04:00May 31st, 2018|Categories: News, Official|Tags: , , , |

Major Changes As of 5/31/2018 those that were Riding Indie Music Bus Officially that have not subscribed to our artist newsletter, are no longer on the roster. Why major changes? It's time to make Indie Music Bus more than just a learning, music sharing and interview platform. It's time to work with a much smaller roster of artists who can reciprocate and support us and others. Of course DIY tips and interviews will stay on but new service types will have to be developed. These new service types will make Indie Music Bus more useful on a daily/weekly basis. Addition: 5/24/18 One of the difficulties I have is getting in touch with artists, most don't sign on to the mailing lists. This will be required for free promotion in the future. As far as the artists promotion roster and how [...]

Andy Michaels: Revisited

By |2018-05-14T19:13:50-04:00May 16th, 2018|Categories: Artist Interview, Guest Author|Tags: , , , , , , |

Australian singer/songwriter sings like an angel. He's a lyrical anomaly, and a phenomenal poet. He has just released a new full length album called "Revisited", an eclectic collection of inspiration. He defies genre bounties and has a fan for each song.... I shared questions with Andy regarding his music, his sensitivity and his compassionate way of creating music. The album is compelling and captivating and nearly addicting. .... You are very poetic, do you write your songs from "life" experiences? I guess most Artists are modern day Sponge Bobs (Haha, yes I have a 4yo daughter ! ) in that they absorb and reflect what is going on in their personal lives and what is going on around them. I am very sensitive and intuitive to that and am also very spiritual, although probably not in a strict religious sense. [...]

Paolo Fosso: “Armonite”

By |2018-05-10T18:03:42-04:00May 12th, 2018|Categories: Artist Interview, Guest Author|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

One of the most modern and prolific composers to arrive on the music scene is Paolo Fosso and , "Armonite", an audacious and vibrant electronic band consisting of keyboards and violin. A compelling duo, "Armonite" is about to unveil their newest release entitled: "And The Stars Above". The album is set to release this May via Cleopatra Records. The duo consists of Paolo Fosso, the mastermind of "Armonite", who has also composed the entire album, and is the keyboardist and Jacopo Bigi, on violin. The album is marked by a massive orgasmic rush of electronic instrumentals and some atmospheric vocals, and genre all it's own, although some would identify it as progressive rock. It's more of a sonic revelation, combined with an earthly sensibility. I spoke with keyboardist and composer, Paolo Fosso, who is based in Milan, Italy. He was [...]

By |2018-05-12T05:32:24-04:00May 11th, 2018|Categories: Artist Interview, Guest Author|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

One of the most prolific, relevant, vibrant, and well-hidden activists is the mastermind of American High Doug Terry. American High is a band for the people! Their anti-war songs on their last album "Bones in the Attic, Flowers in the Basement" created a buzz before fans even realized it was a dedication to the war on war, as their orgasmic melodies and decadent harmonies resonated sonic pop culture at it's very best. Now the band's long and highly anticipated new single has just been released, as entitled "Cheye Calvo" another alt-rock/ pop phenomenon dedicated to the good of mankind. Caring only that their message be presented and their music be heard the band donates the proceeds from their music to food banks and their lives to being creative. American High is one of the centuries most important bands to arise, [...]

By |2017-10-24T12:54:06-04:00October 24th, 2017|Categories: Artist Interview, Guest Author|Tags: , , , , , |

Innovative, French, Urban alternative, R&B singer/songwriter, Yo Trane has recently released "Alone", a soft sexy song, surrounded by mellow, warm tones, catchy lyrics, and a meaningful story. Already gathering a massive following, Yo Trane will be releasing a second project, "Waves in the Moonlight", later this year. His songs are authentic, his style unique and salacious, and his voice is one of the best I've ever heard. I had an in depth conversation with the 23 year old artist who's persona wasn't very different from his songs, calm, real, and wishing to tell a story. It's very easy to fall completely in love with Yo Trane and his music. I want to hear about your music, do you write it, and what inspires your music? Yeah, I definitely do. To me it's kind of weird to let somebody else speak [...]

With their own very special brand of psychedelic insanity, the San Francisco psych rock collective has just unleashed "Further!!", to the unsuspecting world, a sonically tasteful album, with darkened lyrics and happy endings. Members of this faction include: No, on guitar, keys and vocals. No first picked up a guitar at 5 years old, and had his first band at age 11. No spent several years as a sessions player and Revolushn is his first effort at creating a sound and style.

He's been a member of bands such as "Devo", "Sparks", and "Gleaming Spires", and writes most of the lyrics for the group while playing the drums. Guinevere Q NBFD, plays the bass and does vocals.
