Nils Frahm is soon to embark on a 9fingers Tour named after his recent thumb injury, through North America. Despite his fears, Nils decided to embrace his demons and record a ‘Song for 9 fingers’ as personal motivation and a message of optimism to his American fans:

‘This is my new Django Reinhardt way of doing it. Or, in case you break your left thumb, you can still perform this.’

Hosannas Cave Adventure Video

From the dedicated Into The Woods group, this amazing video expands on the daring descent into Ape Cave near Mt. St Helens to perform where no band has performed before.  Hosannas reports they are holed up in the studio working on the next album.

Peter Broderick has taken the wraps off the website that is his sophomore vocal album’s namesake.  On the surface, it offers streaming of the entire album, lyrics, media-rich liner notes and an invitation to share.  Spend some time with it and you’ll discover a beautiful mind at work and a hidden treasure trove.

Carlos Forster Daytrotter Session

Carlos Forster and Mike Coykendall stopped in at Day Trotter headquarters in Rock Island, IL late last year to give a luminous, bare-bones performance of four songs from Forster’s debut Family Trees

Spend any duration of time with Carlos Forster, listen to any song on his incredibly poignant album “Family Trees,” and you’re bound to feel yourself relating to him, nodding a lot and offering personal stories that don’t usually come out at parties. The way that he thinks and the way that he writes is – in the best possible sense of the word – an inviting mess.
