1. Kelly and the Hermanos - They’re as Awesome as They Look

        One of the many benefits of working directly with artists is that we’re exposed to an incredibly diverse range of unique musical styles and talent. One particularly awesome band of musicians, Kelly and the Hermanos, set aside time from gearing up for their May 26th album release show in NYC to grace us with a live performance this past Friday (5/11) in Grooveshark’s New York Office. Their particular brand of music? A “soundscape of an old timey western, wrought with love, despair and adventurous action that just happens to take place underwater.” The band has spent the last year recording their aptly named debut album “Underwater Western” and performing across the Northeast. We were thrilled to hear that the band uses Grooveshark to help stoke the fires that fuel their creative process.

    “Grooveshark has been a great way for the band to bring our different musical tastes together. Every time we hang out we’ve got it up on the computer making playlists that combine each of the band members favorite music, from old country songs to indie rock and pop music. This in turn helps develop our sound based on the mixture of the music we enjoy to create something that is the sum of all our loves.”
    –Kelly & The Hermanos 

        We know they’re excited to share their new album with the Grooveshark Community, so if you find yourself in or around New York City on May 26, make your way over to the Rockwood Music Hall for the “Underwater Western” release party and show them some love from the Sharks.

        Of course, no story on a live performance would be complete without pictures! Check them out below. :)


    Love & Sweet Underwater Westerns,

  2. Our NYC office is buzzing in excitement because minimalist dream-pop artist, Love Inks, just played right here at Grooveshark.

    Check out the photo below of them at our New York City office playing a few of their latest songs.

    Love Inks’ debut album ‘E.S.P.' was conceived and recorded with strict, direct motives. The sounds captured within the 10 tracks are simply an electric guitar, a bass guitar, an old drum machine, and the poignant vocals of Sherry LeBlanc. Self-recorded in their own homes in Austin, Texas and mixed by a friend; the idea was to get the purest signals from all instruments and feed them through an 8 track reel-to-reel. The songs featured on 'E.S.P.' were written to showcase the essence of emotion behind each instrument.

    If you haven’t taken a listen yet, you can check out their music on Grooveshark here!
