Generally acclaimed as fusion's greatest drummer, Billy Cobham's explosive technique powered some of the genre's most important early recordings -- including groundbreaking efforts by Miles Davis and the Mahavishnu Orchestra -- before he became an accomplished bandleader in his own right.  A technically accomplished soloist whose combination of bombastic power and rhythmic clarity made him the quintessential fusion drummer.

Hailing from San Francisco, Deafheaven is one of the most innovative and original new heavy music acts today. They seamlessly create a crushingly tight cacophony of blisteringly music that has been recently minted as a new offshoot genre called “Post-Black Metal” or  “Blackgaze”.  Rolling Stone placed it first on their 2013 list of best heavy metal albums, calling it “a mind-blower, bowling over innocent listeners with fist-pumping hooks that wouldn’t sound out of place on whatever U2 is finishing up,”

KELLER WILLIAMS

VIDEO    ​FACEBOOK

Since he first appeared on the scene in the early ’90s, Keller Williams has defined the term independent artist. And his 16 recordings tell only half the story. Keller built his reputation initially on his engaging live performances, no two of which are ever alike. Williams’ solo live shows—and his ability to improvise to his determinedly quirky tunes despite the absence of an actual band—quickly became the stuff of legend, and his audience grew exponentially when word spread about this exciting, unpredictable performer.
