Introducing Indie Musician David Packouz

davidpackouzDavid Packouz was born in St. Louis, Missouri, the third of nine children of pioneering ‘Internet Rabbi’ Kalman Packouz. While living in Jerusalem and Miami he became fascinated by science, studied chemistry and philosophy and practiced massage therapy and international business. Through his immersion in these diverse fields and while traveling to many places around the world, he was exposed to many different ideas, philosophies and ways of life.

He came to realize that although we are all unique in our own way, we are also incredibly similar in much more fundamental and important respects. So to understand each other, we must first understand ourselves.

This requires above all else, an open mind, honesty and empathy to see these same attributes in others. We are each a small Universe, or MicroCOSM, unto ourselves, yet we all comprise this greater MACROCOSM of human existence.

Focused Indie Musician Beth Orton Traverses New Folk Sound

roboticfoundationcoverWhile Beth Bombara so far has largely focused on Beth Orton/Bon Iver-esque, downtempo, melodious folk-pop, her recent project, Beth Bombara and the Robotic Foundation, pulls her into the orbit of the Breeders and, at times, Bettie Serveert. Her clear and warm alto makes her confessions believable, while the rhythmic instincts of her band are always sharp. Bombara’s recent songs come tailor-made for a long, late-night drive through a dense forest, where shadows emerge, shiver and linger in the memory.

Beth Bombara’s music has traversed the waters of folk to indie rock, successfully gaining a diverse fan base and avid admirers. She has toured nationally as a member of Samantha Crain and the Midnight Shivers, and appeared in Guitar Player magazine.

patrickthomasalbumHere’s the story behind the indie musician’s track,  Airport Girl:

Boy notices girl at airport, thinks about talking to girl, gets caught staring. But wait… was she smiling at me?

Well, in this song, the stars align and the girl ends up sitting next to me on the plane. Add to that she is really funny, rad, awesome etc. That’s worthy of a song, right? Enjoy!
