CalArts Soundstream 2017
CalArts Soundstream 2017
CalArts Soundstream 2017 is a one-night showcase of forward-thinking, genre-defying music—all original work by artists graduating from The Herb Alpert School of Music at CalArts. From CalArts’ graduating class of 2017 comes an eclectic selection of bands; delving into the diverse worlds of jazz, folk, rock, R&B, soul, and pop. This lineup represents what’s next for LA’s music scene, as these creative performers blend detailed composition with improvisation and modern electronics with acoustic instruments. Featuring (not in performance order):
Ackland, Battery, Grace Fellows, Newman, Primero Sueno, Shirasawa-22 and Cilience.

LA Weekly on Soundstream 2015: One of the most anticipated events of the year for current students at talent-factory CalArts, the annual Soundstream showcase gives the college’s musicians a chance to play on one of the most famous stages in music at the Troubadour. Taking things outside the metaphorical music box, performers bring the kind of outlandish originality that's synonymous with “art school,” introducing the audience to “future R&B” and other equally innovative genres. Whether you’re looking for some new fresh faces in the live music scene, or you just want to know what the heck “psychedelic children's rock” sounds like, Soundstream is the place to be.

The Jade Jackson Band
The Jade Jackson Band: hand-crafted Americana gets the blues… and country, folk, rock, jazz
Jade Jackson, lead vocals, guitar, harmonica; Andrew Redel, vocals, guitar, banjo, resonator; Brenneth Stevens, lead guitar, mandolin, pedal steel; Jake Vukovich, bass; Tyler Miller, drums/percussion The Jade Jackson Band is an Americana group from the Central Coast of California. Jade’s powerful, yet delicate vocals are backed by gritty rhythms and bluesy leads to create a captivatingly raw sound of honesty and sorrow; a combination that blurs genre confinements while still holding true to the essential elements of country and rock ‘n’ roll music. The final lineup of the band was formed in 2014 when Tyler Miller (drums), Jake Vukovich (bass), Andrew Redel (guitar,vocals,banjo), Brenneth Stevens (guitar, pedal steel, mandolin), and Jade Jackson (vocals, guitar) began rehearsing together and performing around their home state at every possible chance. Their influences are gathered from jazz, country, rock and roll, the blues, and even punk. Each member of the band gleans differently from their love of artists such as Hank Williams, Mazzy Star, Social Distortion, Townes Van Zandt, Buck Owens, Tom Waits, Robert Johnson, and Neko Case in a manner that adds a unique texture of sound that the listener can't help but feel drawn in by.The Jade Jackson Band is currently working on their first studio album, produced by Mike Ness. The album will be c

The songs take inspiration from ’50s rock ’n' roll and ’80s new wave, finding new whimsical and surreal tunes that get even the grownup babies dancing.
Karkaza
Karkaza: metal’s most unrepentant abuse of power
Lilia Bogoeva, guitar, voice; Hannah Dexter, bass; Benjamin Hubbard, guitar; Mekala Session, drums; Quayla Bramble, voice Karkaza, Sanskrit for “hard, callous, unyielding to pressure,” is the epitome of visceral emotion and physicality in metal. From the resonant ballad “Malka Moma” to the unprecedented “The 7 Strings of Hell,” and the hard-edged, sarcastic headbanger “Don’t Know Shit,” Karkaza will leave you wondering what you just witnessed and where you can get more.

May we polish our lens cleanly enough to refract the light that shines upon it. All that remains is the intention to share what we receive.
