According to all the press and hype and hoopla for a time during the 1990s, Tommy Castro was pegged as the next big star of the blues. Long a favorite among Bay Area music fans, Castro -- in the space of two album releases -- took his music around the world and back again with a sheaf of praise from critics and old-time blues musicians alike....
It's incredible that GALACTIC has never made a carnival album yet, but now it's here. To make CARNIVALE ELECTRICOS, the members of GALACTIC (Ben Ellman, harps and horns; Robert Mercurio, bass; Stanton Moore, drums and percussion; Jeff Raines, guitar; Rich Vogel, keyboards) draw on the skills, stamina, and funk they deploy in the all-night party of their annual Lundi Gras show that goes till sunrise and leads sleeplessly into Mardi Gras day....
" It took life for us to get to this point – Everybody was so free. From the first notes, it sounded like an explosion of sound; We went where the songs took us with a singularity of purpose....
When Cage the Elephant released their self-titled debut in 2009, they were heralded as saviors of slacker funk-punk thanks to their hit "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked." The title turned out to be more prescient than they'd bargained for: the band has been battling adversity of many stripes....

It might seem odd to describe Bombay Bicycle Club as veterans given that nobody in the band is older than 24, but this is their fourth album, which is something of a landmark achievement in today's blink-and-you'll-miss-them climate....
Few people were surprised when Stephen Marley's long awaited debut solo album "Mind Control" (Tuff Gong/Ghetto Youths/Universal Republic) premiered at No. 1 on the Billboard Reggae Album chart in March 2007; after all, the singing, songwriting and production excellence Stephen had brought to other Marley family projects over the years, including younger brother Damian's two Grammy Award winning albums, practically guaranteed "Mind Control" would be a remarkable effort....

One of the first bands to take the “Jawaiian” sound to the world, Honolulu’s the Green are a reggae four-piece whose self-titled debut album was voted Best Reggae Album of 2010 by the users of iTunes. After cousins Caleb Keolanui and JP Kennedy put their previous band, Next Generation, to rest, they recruited Ikaika Antone and Zion Thompson to form the Green....
Before launching a solo career as the protÃ©gÃ© of Jack Johnson, Donavon Frankenreiter began his professional life as a surfer. Born in Southern California on December 10, 1972, he landed a sponsorship with Billabong as a young teenager and moved to Hawaii when he was 14....
