Matt Bunsen - Pass it Around



Matt Bunsen is just another self-deprecating/aggrandizing singer/songwriter from LA.  Adept at the art of songcraft, he combines witty yet heartfelt melodies that flow effortlessly into memorable, epic, sing-along choruses.   But if the if grandeur fails to connect, at least Matt can take solace in being silly.   
That being said, not many people can take a Wikipedia entry and compose it into meaningful tale of western angst as Matt does on “I’m Yosemite Sam”.  (Frank Zappa made him do it.)  It’s musical cousin “Stone Cold Santa” further demonstrates the commitment to rocking while remaining both earnest and clever.
Matt Bunsen performs around Southern California - sometimes by himself with just a guitar - and other times playing bass and fronting the 7-piece band, Matt Bunsen and the Burners. They perform interesting takes on classic rocks anthems, along side Bunsen own anthem “Beer” and the swinging “Drugs Make Me Happy” from their Greatest Hits CD, released in 2013.   The result is a rather entertaining evening!  You should check them out...
In his spare time, Matt composes soundtrack music, with credits including NPR, MTV, and Discovery Channel.  He also plays bass for a number of LA bands such Still Spark, Annette Conlon Band, Off The Fence and others.

Even after transferring from Africa to U.S.A. for an engineering job, Alla was puzzled that she earned the job but she strive to achieve her goals. In life, dedication can be the breaking point of a successful venture and a reflection of the steps taken to get there. Alla also theorizes about a time that women felt uncomfortable in a …

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
