That’s the feeling that bubbles up from Acarya’s music … earthy percussion, rocking bass, interlocking strings, and deep vocals create a sound imbued with excitement, wonder, and a feeling of freedom. This upbeat tribal rock band invites you to grab your dancing shoes, your backpack, a drink, a few friends, and join in – and don’t forget the marshmallows!
Ashbury Keys is a Texas-based alternative rock band that features its own “Brit-Tex” brand of rock. The band’s sound reflects early Brit-Pop influences (such as the Smiths, Oasis, Candy Skins, and the Wonder Stuff), but as displayed through a distinctly Texas filter. The band recently completed its second year of successful shows in the United Kingdom, playing shows in London, Liverpool and Manchester, which has served to grow the band’s affinity for the UK.
Brandon Green’s style of acoustic and electric guitar ranges from up-beat alternative rock to more soothing contemporary sounds, like that of musician/artist Johnny Rzeznik of The Goo Goo Dolls, Green’s main musical inspiration.
Originally from Oswego, NY, Green began playing drums at the early age of three and electric guitar at age 12. Song-writing came naturally to Green since age 16, but his interest in music production took him to Tempe, AZ in 2004 where he completed his Audio Engineer Certificate at The Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences.
Relocating to Western Pennsylvania in 2007, Green displayed his talent as a drummer in local band Covert’s Crossing, and managed sound set-ups on the side for other musicians in the area. In 2010 Green broadened his reach and joined local band Half Dozen Krackerz playing rhythm guitar, all the while fusing creativity and songwriting into prospective solo works. Brandon strayed from HDK in in 2015 to pursue solo works.
His upcoming CD features acoustic versions of original compositions. Green’s original (hit) “Shadow” is widely acclaimed in the local music scene. His performances feature all of his original tracks and other various acoustic covers.
Green continues to pursue his dreams of music and songwriting by staying active in the local music scene. He plays at numerous venues and open-mic events and solo-acts, and stays connected with various musicians and artists nationwide.
Brian Price’s unique style captures both lyrical honesty and rock sensibility. His inspiration comes from the tightly crafted songwriting of John Hiatt and Marshall Crenshaw while his sound invokes the more modern arrangements of Whiskeytown and The Decemberists. Operating beyond the traditional confines of the singer/songwriter style, Price and his changing cast of first-rate musicians serve up songs in which the lyrics lead the way. While taking the listener off the beaten path into lives and stories not often told, the band still manages to deliver finely honed structure and expert instrumentation. Price’s musings on everyday life, filled with sentimental candor and unexpected moments of joy, revelation and wit, touch all the bases for the acoustic coffeehouse patron and the rock club veteran alike—both of whom know a solid performance when they hear it.

The multi-faceted musical mastery of Ed Roman sparkles like a prism of possibilities, which play out like a synthesis between a children’s book, a musical, an expose and a spirit quest – full of wonder, delight, mystery, provocation and sheer excitement wrapped in layers of funky, soul shaking grooves! The sheer expanse of the musical gamut that Ed draws upon is astonishing and he does so with perspicacity, unbridled passion and cunning virtuosity.
Upon blooming into the music world in the early ’80’s, Ed tasted from every creative tray before him; from studio musician, live performer and engineer to songwriter and teacher. He has been a part of several bands including Brotherhood, Family Tree, Soup, Big Beat Collective and Special Ed and the Musically Challenged but has always continued to create individually when not collaborating.
Right out of the gate, with his freshman release in 2000, “Special Ed and The Musically Challenged”, Ed defined his paradigm with inventive, infectious tunes that shook one’s marrow and stirred the spirit! This guy was unique! Three follow-up releases with SEMC continued to mesmerize and astonish us with music that both kissed and prodded, seduced and challenged, hypnotized and enlightened us to ever greater heights.
In May 2011, Ed released his solo venture “Oracles and Ice Cream” and has never looked back. 22 tracks that are an amazing marvel of songwriting wizardry, prodigious performances and contagious energy with the mystery and magic of a lucid, tantalizing dream. The music both traverses and convenes broad music styles into the consummate collective of telluric, penetrating rhythms and canyon wide harmonic explorations, glazed with lyrics that range from penetrating to whimsical and all roads in between.
Now, in 2014, with “Letters from High Latitudes”, Ed Roman has done it again, creating an earthy, funky and magical mix of music to seduce our ears! Let us sit back, get mellow and listen to this truly skillful musician weave a tapestry of enchantment from an eclectic fabric of musical styles. We can never get too comfortable however, as Ed will undoubtedly prompt us to examine the world we see and stimulate us to help make it better! Ed asks us to glimpse the world from his vantage point, offering up his vision and sometimes helping to point out the areas that need tidying. Like the janitor of our conscience he’ll frequently show us the cobwebs and sweep the dirt from the corners of our perspective. One is left uplifted, invigorated and enriched by dewy new jewels of insight and permeated by a mosaic of mirthful musical mayhem. Funky, ethereal, grungy, luscious, rowdy, serene, provocative, clever, insightful and uniquely exhilarating, Ed Roman’s marvelous musings drop dollops of tasteful delight through our ears to our hearts. You can’t help but dance. You can’t help but smile.
