Reid Genauer

Jan. 23, 2020

Truth is, we've become really good friends with Reid over the years and are in awe of how he's able to bring musicians together, to share in the love of the jam, the songs and good times.

Kellen of Fruition

Jan. 13, 2020

It feels like I just spoke to Mimi Naja from Fruition about the release of Wild as the Night. Turns out, my memory is spot on, because we spoke to her November 8th.

I'm sure all over the United States there are pockets of great jam band communities that embrace new artists, new incarnations of bands and the spread of awesome live music.

The Kudrachrone EP marks a rebirth of sorts for Turkuaz, taking the band back to a more soulful R&B sound more similar to the Stereochrome EP.  In fact, they’ve also shelved the colorful outfits of the last several album cycles in favor of just four colors for their on stage presence; white, black,…
