Civil Twilight is a mystifying blend of atmospheric sounds with swirling guitars and hazy storytelling centered on the struggles and triumphs of human existence. Three parts South Africa and one part Nashville, Steven McKellar, his brother Andrew, Richard Wouters and Kevin Dailey combine power and grace to provide a soundtrack for everything from the cracking of a heart to a walk around the block. Their sophomore release, Holy Weather is a remarkable journey through a dense forest of emotion and has been heralded as some of the best music to come out in 2012.
2012 has been a very good year for Austin native Suzanna Choffel. Her performance of the Fleetwood Mac classic “Landslide” on the third season of NBC-TV’s wildly popular The Voice landed her a place on Blake Shelton’s team. And with it came an outpouring of praise from fans and media from all around the world. Rolling Stone called her “the most intriguing” contestant on the show. Influenced by women as diverse as Erykah Badu and Edie Brickell, with echoes of Feist and even a little Dusty, the confidence in her voice is unmistakable.
Milo Greene is not real. However, the fictitious character that is Milo Greene is very much alive. His makers perceive him as an intellectual entrepreneur. In his poised and dignified manner, he keeps things close to the vest and lets everyone know who’s boss. He is exactly the type of man you would want to represent you in any business venture...and that is exactly why he was created. In the DIY music world, having proper representation is key. Lacking an actual manager, college classmates Andrew Heringer, Robbie Arnett, and Marlana Sheetz concocted a virtual one – Milo Greene – to promote their individual musical efforts. It wasn’t until 2009 that the three began creating music together. While house sitting in the isolated Northern California foothills, the trio wrote and recorded a handful of songs. Seeking a name for their new venture, they thought it only natural to pay tribute to the fake manager/booking agent that had represented them throughout their college years: Milo Greene.
The story of Delta Rae's major label deal, and the release of their stunning debut album, goes back decades, to the Holljes household, where siblings Ian, Eric and Brittany, enjoyed a childhood that was close yet itinerant - one that carried them from Durham, North Carolina, to the Bay area of San Francisco, via Nashville, Tennessee, and Marietta, Georgia. Throughout it all, they relished the continuity of great music — their parents’ record collection, rich with James Taylor, Cat Stevens, Fleetwood Mac, Paul Simon. They picked up old friend, Elizabeth Hopkins, and set up home in an old house in the woods, focused on finding their collective voice, crafting their songs, and playing them live. The four soon became six, a sexted combining the wisdom of their own generation and the promise of so much to come.
