Battlehooch describe their music as “shape-shifting orchestral rock,” we like to call them genre bending over-achievers. From song to song the only thing that remains constant is their high energy and boundless creativity.
They are currently in the middle of an ambitious project: the Single Series 2012. Every six weeks they will be releasing two new songs (single + b-side) and an accompanying video. Watch the video for the newest single ‘Organic’ below or download it along with groovy b-side ‘Thin Patience’ both mixed here at Faultline by Kyle McGraw and Lucas Boilon.
Additionally, Battlehooch are featured in a GoPro ad which is currently airing during Giants games and are playing an upcoming show with goat god rockers Tornado Rider Friday June 8th at the Great American Music Hall. Truly a show that promises to be epic and full of epic sauce.
Jaden Carlson is like any other 9 1/2-year-old from
Colorado; she cross-country skis, plays soccer,
mountain bikes, draws comics and makes some mean
paper airplanes. She also happens to rock out with
her Santa Cruz 1929-00 acoustic guitar alongside
artists like Michael Franti & Spearhead, Trevor Hall,
Matt Butler, Keaton Simons, and Melvin Seals & JGB.
Jaden also spends her weekends and school vacations
performing for thousands of music lovers, including
defining appearances at the Power To The Peaceful
Festival and Telluride Blues & Brews Festival.
At just around 4 feet tall, Jaden stands as one of the brightest and
most soulful reggae rocker-meets-singer/songwriters to grace the
festival circuit. She realized her passion for guitar at age 6 and
started her venture with classical training. Jaden quickly moved to
acoustic and electric rock, teaching herself many of her favorite
covers and writing her own original material.
Jaden now prepares to independently release her sophomore
full-length album Tell Me What You See on February 22, 2011 (her
10th birthday), which follows her 2009 debut Midnight Sky. The
album showcases Jaden’s personal and musical growth, as well as
her genuine vision of peace and one love, heavily influenced by Bob
Marley and Michael Franti. As an active supporter of charities like
Feed Them With Music, Love Hope Strength, and Rock To Stop,
Jaden uses her musical platform to spread the message that we are
all the same and the importance of loving one another.
Tell Me What You See features Oren Micah Williams (drums) of Pirate
Radio, Eric Grant (bass) of The Attack Plan, Dave Shul (guitar) of
Michael Franti & Spearhead, Chris Steel (drums) of Trevor Hall, Rob
Drabkin (vocals) and Keaton Simons (vocals). The album was
recorded at Faultline Studios in San Francisco, during which over 50
paper airplanes were made and flown. Tell Me What You See was
produced by Michael Starita and Michael Ver Steegt, and engineered
by Michael Starita, Kyle McGraw and Lucas Boilon.
