Skin & Bones
Skin & Bones
Skin & Bones is comprised of Taylor Borsuk on guitar, vocals, and suitcase drum with Peter Blackwelder on violin. The Americana duo defined themselves street performing on the salty boardwalk of Venice Beach and continue to grow as musicians as they travel the country. Skin & Bones traveled to Nashville, TN over summer to record their debut full length record at The Bomb Shelter. The record, "Shadowboxing" was produced by Jon Estes (Steelism, John Paul White, Ben Sollee) and mixed by Andrija Tokic (The Alabama Shakes, The Deslondes, Langhorne Slim). "Shadowboxing" will be released on June 15th, 2018.
Modern Crusoe
Through the sleepy haze of Santa Barbara’s waters emerges one of California’s most exciting talents in the indie music scene, known to the world as Modern Crusoe. The artist behind the moniker, Chris Bindloss, is actually a relative newcomer to the music world as he only began to write seriously a few years ago. Despite his young career, he’s been recently getting traction for his latest project, Foreign Language, and finding himself landing in some of Spotify’s coveted playlists and receiving coverage from major blogs like Indie Folx and Open Ears Music.

The previous year was big for the artist, and both the emotional highs and lows were eloquently captured while recording with veteran producer Raymond Richards, known for his work with bands like LCD Soundsystem and Local Natives. Throughout the record, Bindloss vividly paints his story through carefully crafted lyrics that challenge the listener at every step, and it’s his ability to create these intricate songs that have caught the attention of both critics and fans alike.

Santa Barbara’s music scene is small, but Bindloss finds the close nature of the scene to be helpful for his approach, resulting in a laid back, yet emotional, musical style that runs parallel to the mythical nature of Santa Barbara’s beachside culture. While Foreign Language proves that his fanbase has already shifted beyond Santa Barbara’s intimate culture, it’s the personal touch that’s proving to strike a chord with the rest of the world.
