Kiwi Time
Kiwi Time
Originally from Belarus, a neighbor of Russia, childhood friends KIWI TIME relocated to San Francisco in search of the personal and musical freedom they admired and had limited access to growing up in Eastern Europe. Liberated by their new San Francisco home, the band, a taut unit of musicians and songwriters weaned on American indie rock able to create more freely. A live wall of sound, Kiwi Time was built on raw-boned energy and unflinching focus of lead singer and guitarist Yoga Shyp, the unstoppable rhythm section of singer bassist, Anna Makovchik and drummer Vlad Kukharchuk and the swirling vibrations of Mikalai Skrobat on keyboards and guitar.

KIWI TIME signed with San Francisco Bay Area’s Granted Access Studio‘s by Baynetwork, a new entertainment media and tech savvy company based in Menlo Park California. Their 5 track EP “It’s Kiwi Time” produced by Dan Shea (Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Santana, Rob Thomas, Bono, Robin Thicke) with additional production by Scott Llamas will be released in Spring 2014. The new release infuses a memorable dance-rock rhythm with the energy of their live show.

Chandelle
Chandelle
Chandelle’s family had to collectively scrape their jaws off the floor the first time they heard the voice that came out of her little body. She was on a trip to Southern Nevada from her home in a small Northern Nevada town outside of Reno. She was standing in the kitchen of her cousin Jack Evan Johnson, of popular Las Vegas rock band Dude City. It was some White Stripes song. She was playing guit...
ar. She was 16 years old, but what came out was timeless.
Just a southern relocation upon graduation, and Chandelle is no longer a fan-girl from a tiny high school in a town nobody has heard of. With a haunting croon that culls the best elements of Billie Holiday, Grace Slick and Cat Power, and an arsenal of powerful, minimalist songs – many written in spite of unsupportive parents who would take her lyric sheets away if they were found – she has become one of the major players in the Las Vegas music scene.
Being singled out as one of the “10 Vegas acts to watch in 2010” by the Las Vegas Weekly newspaper, Chandelle has been known to play live solo, but more frequently, has performed with a backing band consisting of members of Dude City and Vitamin Overdose (the blues rock band Chandelle also is a member of). But either way, her performances are just as moving, and even with her debut album still unreleased, she has found a loyal fan-base of folks looking for something new that doesn’t sound like it.
The album, currently mid-production, will be a beautifully dark representation of this recent transitional period of her life, ushering her into the next. Produced by the talented team of Daniel James (of both the popular San Francisco blues-rock band Leopold and His Fiction and Austin-based Cowboy and Indian) and Dude City's Johnson, it features an impressive cast of guest musicians including Johnson, James and legendary, chart-topping drummer Sandy Nelson, who helped shape rock and roll history by being both a session player for producer Phil Spector and a major influence on Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham.
Though Chandelle has a long way to go before she shapes rock and roll history, she undoubtedly has what she needs to do so.
