Keith & Aimee Navigate Pitchfork's Music Festival

Keith and Aimee of Black Mamba and Jamuel Saxon took a trip to the Midwest for Pitchfork's annual music festival. All sorts of people attend festivals like Pitchfork, and we thought it would be interesting to hear about it from the perspective of two upcoming musicians who would have fit right in had they gotten a slot on one of the stages. From interesting ramblings on bands to vegan ice cream to insanely long bathroom lines, Milgaten and Sanchez take us through their journey. Read More...

Disposable Project : Sasquatch! Festival

I love the way that music brings people together, sometimes as a direct reason for getting together, and other times as a shared soundtrack to good memories. At the Sasquatch!

Mason Jennings : A Story Teller's Journey

The polished surfaces of major media can make it difficult to decipher what's underneath the endless sounds and images we come across. But if you lift up the rocks of those who are artists in the true sense of the word, you'll usually find unmistakable evidence of passion, persistence, and a disregard for doubt.

It's a story shared with most emerging artists, and a story that, if given up on just a year too soon, would have never made it to our ears. A weathered stone, Mason still makes music as organically and honestly as when he started, and provides an inspiring example of what comes for those who are relentlessly steady in their passions.

Black Mamba Tours the Western States

Black Mamba is a self-proclaimed baby band, that seems to be growing up quickly. Built on the song writing of Aimee Acorn, Black Mamba has attracted some of San Diego's best musicians to collaborate. Late this January, Album Leaf invited them to open a run of West Coast shows, and we figured this would make for a great introduction. Read More...
