Cashew & Cleary:  Like a Rich Man-Fathers Vol.2
Just Released on Cassette on Weiner Records (a subsidiary of Burger Records)

"1967 is alive and well. If you are ready to take a psychedelic trip full of fuzz and reverb, give a listen to this. And if you think The Aussies have a lock on making all things psych modern you’re in for a surprise. Cashew & Cleary are without a doubt one of the best bands out there playing psych/garage and otherwise making the coolest trippy sounds."--50thirdand3rd Music Blog

Big Family Welcomes to:

Jeff Crosby  
““I’ve been waving the banner of this kid Jeff Crosby for a couple of years now…I put out his record and I think he’s the real deal.”—Jerry Joseph of Jerry Joseph & the Jackmormons

Chris Laterzo 

“Laterzo is first and foremost a gifted melodist with an ear for hooks that sink in more deeply with each listen.”—Performing Songwriter

Tawny Ellis 

Ghosts of the Low Country:  “It’ll take you a minute to put your finger on it because happened so long ago but Ellis has the vibe and spirit of prime Lucinda Williams/Gurf Morlix collaborations running through this ep of southern gothic roots music.  From originals to covers, Ellis puts her own stamp on the proceedings mingling the familiar with the new for a gumbo that really satisfies.  As tasty as it can get in an ep format, this session recorded at Muscle Shoals really packs all the classic vibe from those walls into this date you can handle.  Check it out, she’s a winner.”—Midwest Record

Patricia Bahia 

“I fell in love with Patricia’s music when I first heard it. A cancer survivor, Patricia has turned her struggles and triumphs into truly memorable songs that are perfect for placement in television, movies and commercials. The title track is one of her best, and coupled with her musical talents, exemplifies what indie music is all about. She also gives a great live performance - check her out the next time she's performing.”--Examiner.com Robert Leggett
