STUDIO MUSIC: Helio Sequence // Negotiations

Perhaps inspired by their 2009 flood, forcing them to look else where for a new studio/practice space,  Helio Sequence of Portland, OR release their fifth full-length album Negotiations. Completely written, recorded and produced by the duo singer-guitarist Brandon Summers and drummer-keyboardist Benjamin Weikel.

I have been listening to this album loudly and repetitively since their release on September 11, 2012. I suggest you do the same.

LIKE: Sounds like Rogue Wave, The Walkmen, Tapes ‘n Tapes.

LISTEN: to it free here.

LOVE: more about them here.

LIVE: See them live here.

Portland, OR vocalist, guitarist, songwriter and drummer Corrina Repp is beautiful and an inspiration. She plays drums and sings with 4 piece Tu Fawning. Check out their new album A Monument from PolyVinyl Records. I have had it in constant rotation since it’s pre-release on Spinner.com

Dream Big: Band Identity, Marketing & Merchandise

MUSIC=ART is the idea that music inspires art. A simple equation.

As an artist inspired by music, I love to to create art to music and for music. I began expressing this passion, for music inspired art, when I began working with my husband’s band, The Sound Awake.

We sat down, spoke about his ideas, expectations, dreams and we created a vision, an identity. I have helped him/them create their website, merchandise, photography, promotional materials, marketing and more.

I’m an artist, entrepreneur, cook, wife and I’m easy to talk to. Say hello meredithtowsand@gmail.com
