The Dharma Body
With threads of Sigur Rós and Damien Rice flowing through his self-described "Space Folk" sound, Jason Boner (the name and face behind "The Dharma Body" moniker) aims to create experimental acoustic music that is as epic as it is simple. The combination of the music's soaring strings, emotional vocals, and noises of everyday life takes spacey ambience to a new level worthy of appreciation by fans of all musical tastes.
Chicago power trio Model Stranger will be bringing their blend of rock and roll to the masses on April 24th, 2010 with the release of their full length debut "Dreams & Bones" .... An eclectic synthesis of psychedelic grunge and classic rock, Model Stranger's sound has been described as "akin to an off beat conversation between a deprived Thom Yorke and an angry John Lennon dissecting the modern challenges of the human condition."
I could only play guitar so long before i started writing songs. Some of these songs are acoustic versions that were recorded in different places. Some are from a radio broadcasting, some in a dorm room, and one in a makeshift studio. . I listen to all sorts of music and depending my mood, Ill come up material that sounds bluesish, folkish, rockabillyish, rock n' rollish, maybe even all of the above. I write and play my songs with all my heart. You can catch me playing with my band called Shayna and the QuickSands. The Band members change quite frequently and ive been known to gather up a couple of musicians only a couple days before a show. The songs i have up are recorded from one of those shows. So there ya go!
