King Baby
King Baby
Deft and dynamic, King Baby's sound balances earthy R&B, simmering soul, percolating funk, and a jazz-spiked improvisational bent – with compelling original vocal and instrumental compositions as the fulcrum. Emerging from Atlanta's fertile, diverse music scene, King Baby assemble a uniquely compelling, invigorating sound from shards of their influences, cemented by their long-standing friendship and fearless willingness to experiment, focused with clear-eyed discipline and formidable musicianship.

Composed of Rick Lollar (guitar and vocals), Mark Raudabaugh (drums), Kevin Scott (bass), and veteran keyboardist Matt Slocum (Jimmy Herring Band, Aquarium Rescue Unit), King Baby harness the energy and zeal of open-ended jams to tight, evocative songcraft, making their music at once provocative and accessible. They are currently putting the finishing touches on their debut album, which will be released by the Abstract Logix imprint in the fall of 2016.

Ozone Squeeze (feat. Oz Noy)
Announcing Ozone Squeeze: Powerhouse blues / rock / jazz / funk guitarist Oz Noy joins forces with the talented Rai Thistlethwayte from Australia, the lead singer, keyboardist, and primary songwriter in the Australian pop rock band Thirsty Merc to form Ozone Squeeze.
Oz has been at the forefront of edgy-yet-rootsy guitar playing since he arrived in New York from Israel in the 1990’s. He has released four albums on the Abstract Logix label, and won Guitar Player magazine’s reader polls for “Best guitar riff on a record” (2007), “Best new talent” (2008), and “Best out there guitar player” (2013).
Rai Thistlethwayte started Thirsty Merc, a rock band which would release three successful albums (one platinum, one double-platinum in Australia). He has also performed in a number of jazz combos with the likes of Christian McBride and James Muller.
Darren Stanley has been in the music business performing, teaching and recording for the last 25 years. In recent years, he has worked with Col. Bruce Hampton, Delta Moon, and Donna the Buffalo.
Ozone Squeeze members are each trendsetters and masters of groove. This collaboration is shaping up to be quite special.
Ozone Squeeze is: Oz Noy (guitar), Rai Thistlethwayte (keys and vocals), and Darren Stanley (drums).
Riverside Joyride
Riverside Joyride is a folk act based out of Atlanta, Georgia featuring Jimmy Lynch and Scott MacDonald of Voodoo Visionary. We have been writing songs together for 7 years and tend to write from a story telling aspect. We talk about adventures and experiences both in fiction and non-fiction with our writing style. Some of our songs will have you shaking what your mama gave you, while others will set you back in a trance and make you think about the lyric. We like to sing about wizards and rivers and having a grand ole time!
