From Chicago in the USA, A Lull is a band comprising five multi-instrumentalists, Nigel Dennis, Todd Miller, Mike Brown, Aaron Vincel and Ashwin Deepankar, who take the listener on a journey of discovery. From yesterdays article, which I expected would have arisen out of a Banter-Media introduction, here is one of their introductions. I am […]

The Steepwater Band | Clava

Evol emanate from Glasgow  and came in to fruition last year, 2010. A classic 4 piece rock out-fit comprising, Leona, Jon, Mic and Jo. Although Jo dropped me a note, there wasn’t a great deal of info and sometimes it is better to just write than get hung up on who does what. I will […]
