Thanks to his smart lyrics, the Louisiana-based Curren$y landed a label deal in 2003, but it took three labels and seven years of underground releases before the rapper made his official debut.

Born Shante Anthony Franklin and raised in New Orleans, Curren$y was originally signed to Master P's No Limit label, but in 2005 he made the move to Lil Wayne and Birdman's Cash Money imprint, Young Money. He appeared on Wayne's Tha Carter II album that same year, and in 2006, Curren$y's "Where da Cash At" single was released -- both on its own and as part of Wayne's Dedication 2 mixtape -- but a promised album never materialized. Not one to sit idle, Curren$y started Fly Society with professional skateboarder Terry Kennedy in 2007. The brand was originally planned as a line of apparel, but evolved into a music label as the rapper's relationship with Young Money soured.

After leaving the label at the end of 2007 with Fly Society in tow, a series of underground mixtapes appeared before Curren$y hooked up with the digital-only Amalgam Digital for the early 2009 release This Ain't No Mixtape. The relationship continued that October with the download-only Jet Files, but in early 2010 he joined the Def Jam family via Damon Dash's DD172 imprint. With the label's in-house producer Ski Beatz handling most of the production on both, Curren$y's Pilot Talk album appeared in July of that year, with Pilot Talk II landing in 2010. The stopgap release Weekend at Burnie's followed in 2011, with the retro backing tracks coming from producer Monsta Beatz. Beatz, along with the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League and Pharrell, was back for the rapper's 2012 street release, The Stoned Immaculate.

In 2015, the album Pilot Talk III was released on a $100.00 USB key made available from the rapper's Jet Life website, while the EP Even More Saturday Night Car Tunes landed through more traditional distribution channels. That same year, the "Bottom of the Bottle" single featuring Lil Wayne and August Alsina appeared right before the release of Canal Street Confidential, an album where the MC toured and road-tested the songs before he decided on the final track list. In 2016, the rapper issued over a dozen mixtapes, including collaborative efforts with the Alchemist (The Carrollton Heist), Purps (Bourbon Street Secrets), and Sledgren (Revolver). The self-releases continued into 2017, with the Jetlanta EP and The Fo20 Massacre.

One From Many CD Release Party for "Ardor"

Portland, Oregon based alternative melodic rock - One From Many (OFM) is a core group of musical passioneers and close friends. The band's sound, although rooted in rock, stems from a dynamic creative exploration to include Gospel, indie rock, and indie pop.

 One From Many now returns with their 3rd release under Olea Records, entitled "Ardor." A mix of songs that ring of passion and depth as the album's title infers. This will be the official launch of the "Ardor" EP, and NW tour.

Special guests: Rob Daiker and Adio Sequence

NERVE evolved out of Jojo Mayer's legendary party event Prohibited Beatz in NYC during the late 90′s. Initially a platform for experimental interaction between DJ's, visual artists, musicians and the audience, the collective eventually developed into a fine tuned group that cross-pollinated the premeditated format of programmed electronic music styles with real time, improvised music performance. Within that format, the band assimilated a wide spectrum of electronic styles from old school Jungle, Dub Step or Glitch beats to Minimal and Tech House and anything that could escape genre descriptions yet. In the process, the group managed to acquaint a new audience with improvised music for the first time and ultimately bring the Jazz tradition of improvisation, driving rhythms and stylistic evolution to the digital age. Meanwhile, it embraces the essence of Rock 'n Roll of having a good time and showing the finger to anyone who has a problem with it. NERVE re-examines and transcends the relationship between human creativity and digital technology and created a new form of musical expression which is completely unique in the world today.

NERVE is:
Jojo Mayer: Drums
John Davis: Bass
Jacob Bergson: Keyboards
Aaron Nevezie: Sound and Audio Manipulation

The Paladins from San Diego California are the preeminent blues/rockabilly band in America. Founded in 1980 by guitarist Dave Gonzalez and bass player Thomas Yearsley, they have recorded five singles, nine full Length studio records, and three live albums. Along the way they built a solid reputation as one of America's hardest working and best live bands.

The Paladins helped pave the way for the Rockabilly craze of the early 1980s. Their tagline at the time was "Western & Bop", as they played a combination of rockabilly and vintage country together with a blues groove. Their first LP, The Paladins, was released in 1987 and was produced by Kim Wilson of the Fabulous Thunderbirds. They followed that up with Years Since Yesterday, released on Alligator Records in 1989 and produced by Los Lobos' Steve Berlin and Mark Linnet. When Let's Buzz came out in 1990 the band was firmly planted as a headliners in showcase music clubs across the country and in Europe. The band also established themselves at numerous festivals, sharing bills with the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughn, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, The Blasters, and Los Lobos. Let's Buzz, "an invigorating blend of rockabilly, blues, rhythm-and-blues, and country," was recorded in the Los Angeles studio of 1970s soul star Leon Haywood, and is their largest selling record to date. Since that time six more critically acclaimed albums have come out. Most notably, their 1996 live album Million Mile Club, which fittingly marked the band's millionth mile traveled on the roads of the USA

To their many fans worldwide, the Paladins appeared to have come to an end in 2004. That's when Gonzalez wanted to focus on other musical interests and he formed the western-soul band the Hacienda Brothers. During this time Dave Gonzalez liked to refer to the Paladins status as being "on hiatus." Sadly, the untimely death of Hacienda Brothers band mate and longtime friend, Chris Gaffney in 2008, ended the Hacienda Brothers, which had released four Albums. Then in 2010 the Paladins Reunited for a festival in Europe, which led to even more dates there in 2011. Also that year the band performed their first US date in seven years at the Ink and Iron Festival in Long Beach California. The next year they appeared at the 2012 Doheny Blues Festival and now every year since, they have been headlining select European shows and special reunion appearances here in the US.

Dave Gonzalez has been living in Austin Texas for the past seven years where he stays busy, not only performing, but also recording bands and producing records. Thomas Yearsley has done the same by running Thunderbird Analog Recording Studio and LUX Records in California. In between all of that Dave, Tom and drummer Brian Fahey have also gotten together to record the latest Paladins record titled New World, their first album in over 14 years. It's a diverse collection of smoldering blues and roots rock, with a little honkytonk thrown in. It's like the Paladins shows, non-stop intensity and fine musicianship wrapped up neatly in a three-piece band.
