Composer and Pianist Joseph Seif Releases New Classical Piano Works

Seif’s compositions blend the classical hallmarks of the Late Romantic era with more modern cues from composers such as Nils Frahm, Max Richter, and Yann Tiersen. His playing is demanding, intricate, and deeply influenced by the likes of Sergei Rachmaninoff, Gustav Mahler, and Franz Liszt. His sound can be described as atmospheric and highly textured — an attempt to create new tonal tapestries that interweave a soaring, ornate, romantic sensibility with a modern, cinematic haze.


Emerging LA songwriter and esteemed guitarist – HARRISON WHITFORD – has unveiled plans to support Noah Gundersen in the UK this Winter.

Harrison will also precede the tour with a performance at The Line Of Best Fit Festival at The Lexington in London (15th Jan).

Minnesota Songwriter, Sarah Morris Will Release A New Album in February

Sarah Morris has a habit of missing the forest. From the day the Minneapolis based singer-songwriter picked up a guitar, armed with the bone-deep memory of her parents’ well-loved record collection and rooted in the storytelling fire of a Mary Chapin Carpenter tune, she’s been too busy crafting love letters to the details of the trees. Sarah’s endearingly honest, expertly penned songs encourage audiences to pull away from the big picture and get caught up in the magic of our everyday minutia. The rainy day ache in her sunlit voice granting us permission to escape into stories at once hauntingly familiar and uniquely her own.

Introducing: Engine Summer

Engine Summer are a three-piece band that do more than groups double their size do: Everyone writes, and everyone’s the lead singer. After meeting in high school shop class and seven various DIY bands later, the three landed together in late 2016 in pursuit of an irreverent style of dancey-yet-krauty psych pop & punk. The rules they ride by are: only make music that excites them; every show leaves an impression; every song different from the last; no social media post too social.
