1980 SICKS began their long trek to unite in 1986 when each member, some barely two years old, looked up to the sky one night and began following a bright star. On their quests they crossed oceans, traveled through deserts and soared in handcrafted flying machines towards a forgotten shoreline where a shiny geometric golf ball was lighting the night sky. Entering a hypnotic, opium-induced trance for weeks, maybe years, they honed their craft and learned to write songs like nobody's business with the help of wily old wizards named Fender and Gibson. http://www.myspace.com/1980sicks

ARCTIC conjures up a rich live experience by recording live guitar loops and constructing each song before the audience. Layers of haunting melodies cascade on top of richly improvised arrangements, with intertwining vocals and guitar melded into a chilled and airy soundscape. http://www.projectarctic.com

His growing fanbase has seen him mature as a performer while not losing touch with his heart. With a fistful of emotions clutched in his hands, Pedwell engages listeners with an outstretched passion that is raw, vulnerable and satisfying. http://www.myspace.com/pedwell

CAMERON DOBB - With influences ranging from ethereal British pop to down home roots, Cameron Dobb's music is an auditory journey through a rich emotional landscape where the characters wear their hearts on their sleeves as they go through life's twists and turns. You'll be drawn into these dark yet hopeful tales by Dobb's unique, distinctive voice and refreshing piano-driven sound. http://www.myspace.com/camerondobb
