Bruno Bavota Band Camp

 

Bruno Bavota was born in Naples January 13, 1984. The appeal of music came twenty years later. Until then the music was simply a faithful companion of his daily emotions. One day he decided to reach out to a left-handed guitar, owned by his brother, left for years on the sidelines. From that day, music effectively saved his life by allowing him to express his deepest emotions. A few years later Bruno discovered the piano, whose strings will replace those of the heart, naturally, to vibrate to the world his love song.  website: http://brunobavota.bandcamp.com/

Patience – Doug Scott

Americana/Blues Rock artist Doug Prescott is back with his new live album “Hot Night in November” to follow up the success of last year’s full-length debut “The Journey & the Deep Blue Sea”. Going under the moniker Doug Prescott Band, there are some impressive musicians on the disc, including genre veterans Allyn Love and Tony Bowman. Purists will be upset by the genre-hopping, but that’s just par for the course for Prescott, who dabbles with rock, r&b, funk, blues, country and roots music.

One Way State – The Right Time

One Way State is “straight-shooting, sensible prairie power to scratch that musical itch you didn’t know you had.” Their new album “The Right Time” has earned them a ton of press across Canada, and it’s no wonder. Their sound is polished rock with smart pop song structures and absorbing melodies. The band are extensively touring Canada in support of the release, and should find their way to the U.S soon.
