Independent Artist Jim Greer Set to Release Album

Producer/Songwriter/Musician, Jim Greer, will be releasing his new record, Ginger Vision, on March 14 via Rondo Brothers, War Chant Records. Ginger Vision deals largely with the painful life circumstance of Greer’s 20-month old son, Teddy, being diagnosed with a rare pediatric cancer, called neuroblastoma, last year.

Greer and his family will be treating and fighting Terry’s illness well throughout 2011 and all profits of this album will go towards Teddy’s treatments. Ginger Vision will be available to order from the label and through iTunes.

As a songwriter Greer crafts impressionistic, melodic songs that beget comparisons to contemporaries such as Sean Lennon, The Flaming Lips, etc., and classic artists like Syd Barrett or Nick Drake.

Indie Songwriter Tucker Finn to Release Debut Solo Album

Tucker_FinnCritically acclaimed performing songwriter Tucker Finn, will release her emotionally riveting debut solo album, The Cup & The Lip, on October 26, 2010 via Jane Wayne Records.

No stranger to the musical stage, Tucker was co-creator of the alt-country crooners, The Jane Waynes, commended by press and fans alike for their rollicking shows and songwriting skills. The indie artist’s premiere solo album, The Cup & The Lip, features ten original songs.

The album title, The Cup & The Lip, borrows from an old English proverb, “There’s many a slip ‘twixt the cup and the lip”, which cautions that even the best laid plans can go awry. Tucker’s songs are all about that slip – the vast space that lies between anticipation and the upshot, between your lowest low and your wildest dreams.
