Grayson Erhard promo square

Del Norte, CO based Singer / Songwriter GRAYSON ERHARD a stunning music video for “Introvert,” off of his November 2nd released EP, Earthship. Originally premiered on mxdwn, “Introvert” was directed and filmed by Jason Lee Denton.

“‘Introvert’ is a reflection of the internal struggles of an introvert, outlining battles with constant bombardment of social situations and wanting to get back to solitude, but ultimately becoming comfortable in one’s own skin. Personally, it’s a musical observation of what I see living with and loving an introvert.”- Grayson Erhard

“Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Grayson Erhard recently released a five song EP titled EARTHSHIP. The album is an eclectic offering with songs that touch on everything from folk to hard rock, all through the lens of his masterful guitar playing. Today, we’re excited to premiere a video for the last song on that EP, a richly-arranged acoustic-rock number called ‘Introvert.’” – Matt Matasci – mxdwn

Colorado-based musician Grayson Erhard’s “Introvert” video is a visual romance to the introverts, the lovers of them, and the parts of ourselves that need solace.

The video, which dropped today following the release of Erhard sophomore album and EP EARTHSHIP, reflects a more mysterious, somber aesthetic compared to his recent “Tell Me No” video.

“‘Introvert’ reflects the times when I feel best alone,” Erhard said. “It’s about the welcome isolation that comes when everything else is overwhelming. And, yet, how we’re all connected by our desire to pull away from society and into ourselves, at times.”

Like much of the EP, “Introvert” marks a distinct shift toward a full-band, lyrically-focused style and away from Erhard’s previously undressed, stand-alone acoustic sound.

In it, Erhard has weaved together the percussive style of his early love of Metal and the technically complex percussive guitar style that colored his early career with a more dreamy, indie rock sound. He purposefully plays with and disrupts the common chord progressions of pop music, while complimenting distinct harmonics with EARTHSHIP co-writer Bannigrin’s drum lines.

The video was directed by Jason Lee Denton, produced by Schuyler Howie, and features Aliegh Sheilds. It was shot on location at a beautiful home outside of Nashville, TN.

CAMU Releases Official Music Video for “The One You Leave Behind”

CAMU COVER123

Hawaii based, NAKED front-man CAMU has released the official music video for “The One You Leave Behind,” part 2 of the video Trilogy. Directed, edited, and produced by CAMU, “The One You Leave Behind” was filmed throughout the Island of Hawaii.

Player

Nothing great ever comes easy & the most rewarding way is usually the hard way, which is the essence of “The One You Leave Behind”. Four years ago when my son was 8 months old, my wife & I mustered up the balls to leave everyone & everything we knew behind and move 7000 miles away to start a new chapter in our life. The task was so momentous that I had to cruise through it at times. What I left behind was the person I had always been, everyone I knew, and who everyone knew me as. Everything I experienced in the last few years, becoming a dad twice over, starting a business & relocating again has been new and foreign to me but in the end I came out the ringer a much better & more fulfilled person. Iv’e always gone with the flow in life, never could have imagined it would take me from Helsinki to Hawaii.

“The One You Leave Behind” has been a very difficult yet rewarding song to write & record. I completely changed my approach with this one and dug deep. If you harness the spirit that your inner voice represents you can achieve anything. Your gut feeling is fire. Don’t make plans just do.
The song took on a life of it’s own and consumed me and I gave it my all. The song contains some of the actual demo recording as I wanted to keep the songs authentic feel alive. It was recorded on three different continents and is raw, honest and a testament of who I have become, showcasing a different side of me. I actually recorded my vocals on my balcony at night, and I have to say I liked singing this song as I wasn’t belting all the way through. I’m happy and relieved it’s finally released.

What started off as a nice little riff inspired by attending what was to be Tom Petty’s last show ever at the Hollywood Bowl, made me question my sanity at times, adding to it the fact that I recorded this song between 1 and 3 AM exclusively, like a hermit isolated deep in the jungle of Hawaii Island.
I had every technical set back under the sun with this one, broken hard drives, crashed drones & lost tracks. I almost died falling into the river above a 40 feet tall waterfall, only saved by grabbing onto a rock at the last second.
The video is something I am very proud of, the coolest thing I have ever created up till this point. It really showcases how magical the place I now call home is. While filming and recording “The One You Leave Behind” we were hit by hurricanes, floods and a volcanic eruption, yet beauty & life prevails.
Part 2 of the Trilogy is about giving into the universe and grabbing life by it’s balls and riding that wave from infinity till beyond, if you dare. Trust me, you’ll be better than fine. Life is magical so enjoy it.

Part 1: The story so far

 

After a 8 year hiatus from releasing music, the first thing I will be releasing is a trilogy of songs & their corresponding videos (“Empire State Of Sound” being the first of the trilogy) that unfold the journey of my life throughout these last 8 years, musically & personally. Once NAKED disbanded after 10 years, 4 albums and two world tours I had had enough, the final straw came when our manager Bill Aucoin (KISS & Billy Idol) passed away, everything fell apart, I left, I hung it up and I disappeared. NAKED had been my band since I was a teenager. I’m grown now & I have 2 children, & spend most of my time in Hawaii. A lot has changed obviously, but I’ve written & recorded a lot of music during my time living away from Finland. I’ve had so many life altering & mind blowing experiences, so I’ve got a lot of new song material & the trilogy songs reflect and tells my story. This new release is all about me coming out & being me, Camu. Naked is still my band & will be touring as my band when we do our summer tour in 2019, but this is pure Camu music the way I have always envisioned it. As the new music being released ventures further from the straight rock music we used to play back in the day, we will be releasing it under a new better fitting new name, CAMU.

THE SIXTH CHAMBER Releases Official Music Video for “Entrance to the Cold Waste” Featuring STANTON LAVEY & MAHAFSOUN

6CETTCWEPCOVERHIRESCROPPED

Gothic Metal Band THE SIXTH CHAMBER has released the official music video for “Entrance to the Cold Waste.” Filmed in the wastelands of Death Valley, CA, “Entrance to the Cold Waste” features STANTON LAVEY (grandson of Church of Satan founder / Satanic Bible author ANTON LAVEY, whose character featured prominently in this season’s AMERICAN HORROR STORY) and belly dancing by MAHAFSOUN.

With ‘Entrance to the Cold Waste’, we sought to create a portal of escape from the drab norms of daily reality we tend to become trapped in and provide passageway to a nightmare realm of sublime dreamscapes,” says Rahne Pistor, Sixth Chamber lead vocalist and founder. “I wanted to create a world as it exists within my deeper consciousness rather than as it seems in the confines of the waking world.” – Rahne Pistor

Behold the ancient rites of unspeakable black magic mystic horror!

Mythical Los Angeles gothic doom proto-metal mysterians The Sixth Chamber have completed a new single and music video nightmare trip – shot in the vast, tortured wastelands of Death Valley, California. Part Lovecraft and part Pasolini, the sonic and visual dream quest stars gothic metal bellydance YouTube sensation Mahafsoun as well as Stanton Lavey (grandson of Church of Satan founder/Satanic Bible author Anton Lavey) who aptly plays the role of a crude, heathen elder god. Directed by Constantin Werner.

THE SIXTH CHAMBER is a library in hell where all the world’s darkest secrets are kept in neatly arranged volumes on shelves. Band leader Rahne Pistor came up with the concept in 2001 inspired by the writings of 18th century mystic William Blake. Since that time the band has accumulated a long and storied recording legacy with gothic, metal, experimental, blues, psychedelic, fantasy/horror soundtrack and other musical and poetic influences evident in their sound. Themes generally focus on the mythic, mystic and phantasmic.

STANTON LAVEY is the grandson of Church of Satan founder and Satanic Bible author Anton Lavey. The resemblance to his iconic grandfather is uncanny. Stanton spends his time promoting Anton Lavey’s legacy and related principles of the Laveyan Satanist philosophy.

MAHAFSOUN, a Persian belly dancer and model, aptly describes herself as an escapist. She became a YouTube sensation as an early adopter of gothic metal bellydance and has shared the stage belly dancing live with revered metal acts including Moonspell, Epica and Ex Deo. Her style is mired in dark fantasy art, and she is currently one of the most easily recognizable Gothic fashion models of today.

Joyous Wolf is a Rock band from Southern California formed in 2014 by vocalist Nick Reese, guitarist Blake Allard, bassist Greg Braccio, and drummer Robert Sodaro. Reese and Sodaro met on their first day of 6th grade during student orientation. They went to different high schools where Sodaro would go on to befriend Braccio. During that time Reese, by chance, met Allard in the acoustic room at Guitar Center where they would jam CCR’s “Born on the Bayou”. There was an immediate dynamic between the two that ultimately led to an exchange of information. Months later Reese reached out to both Sodaro and Allard with the interest of starting a new project with them. Braccio would soon follow suit.

In the waning months of 2014 early jam sessions would yield the foundation of what Joyous Wolf has become. Fusing together influences ranging from Heavy Metal to Delta Blues, Joyous Wolf creates an expressive, high-energy fingerprint that separates themselves from their contemporaries in the realm of Modern Rock.

BURDEN OF THE SKY Releases Official Music Video for “The Puppeteer”!

Promo Pic 1

Alternative Hard Rock/Metal band BURDEN OF THE SKY has released the official music video for their newest single, “The Puppeteer.” Directed by Scottie James and Jason Williams (with assistance from Savannah Bowles), “The Puppeteer” is the second single off of their upcoming sophomore release (due out 2019).

Video

“I tend to get lost in my head quite frequently thinking about life and how we choose to live it. I see a lot of people who get stuck in the cycle of get up, go to work, come home, watch tv, go to bed, and repeat. Falling into this kind of lifestyle terrifies me, and I’ve found music is my escape from that cage. I think a lot of people get stuck into that routine because they are afraid of the unknown, afraid of failure, or just afraid of change. They let their own anxiety and emotions control their fate, much like a puppet is controlled by its strings. My hope is that this song connects with others out there like me who want to take control of their lives. To inspire them to act on what they truly want out of their life.” – Scottie James (Vocals)

Burden Of The Sky is an American Alternative Hard Rock/Metal band. The band was born in 2012, a project of Brad Shaw and Josh Appel. Cinis Ad Cinis, the group’s debut album, came to light in 2017 and pushed the band into the public eye. The album was driven by the lead single “Same Old Page”, which has been streamed worldwide over 800,000 times.

The debut album and new single “Sirens” were produced, mixed and mastered by award winning Nashville Producer/Engineer Colt Capperrune of Dark River Studios. Says Capperrune, “Working on an album like Cinis ad Cinis makes my job as a Producer easy. The songs were extremely strong just the way the band brought them to me.”

In 2018, the band has been reborn. Still lead by Shaw and Appel on guitars, as well as keyboardist Michael Mahoney, bassist Dustin Tritsch, and drummer Rick Streeter, they moved forward with new singer/songwriter Scottie James (Aterra Tale). Infused with new life, the band has moved forward with new material and look forward to their sophomore release in 2019.

GRAYSON ERHARD Releases ‘Earthship’ EP Official Music Video for “Tell Me No”

Grayson Erhard - Earthship cover art

Del Norte, CO based Singer / Songwriter GRAYSON ERHARD has released his highly anticipated sophomore EP, Earthship, with the stunning “Tell Me No” official music video premiered on New Noise Magazine.

Video

“‘Tell Me No’ is a high energy, upbeat song highlighting the apprehensive excitement of new found chemistry between two people. It’s a side of me that I’m very nervous yet excited to share. My music usually sounds very dark and serious, but lately, I’ve been wanting to depart from that and try new things. Happiness is an emotion I’ve had difficulty expressing within my music in the past and with ‘Tell Me No’ I wanted to dive head first into it.” – GRAYSON ERHARD

Grayson Erhard promo - 16-9

“The more of his music you listen to, the more entwined in his sound you become – the more reliable it all appears, the more addictive, the more essential. I Will is a great introduction but fortunately there’s more to it than just this one song (last year’s Karma is another beauty). Grayson Erhard is an artist well worth exploring.”- Rebecca Cullen, Stereo Stickman

Hailing from Del Norte, Colo., Grayson Erhard’s style leans heavily on the technically complex tap-slap style of percussive guitar often paired with moving, airy vocals. Erhard often feels the pull between performing as a musicians’ musician and the hook writing world of pop, creating a sound that weaves between complement and contrast. This unique tension, combined with Erhard’s experience sharing the stage with Stevie Wonder, has led to Erhard’s viral success and a sound that both complements and contrasts his various styles.

Songs like “Manifest” and “Tapestry” showcase Erhard’s ability to stand on his own, organically, and represent beacons of the kind of musician Erhard strives to be. In pursuit of sonic expansion from his solo recordings, Erhard’s newest collection of music, EARTHSHIP, came to life inside of a Taos, NM earthship with co-writer/drummer, Bannigrin. The compositions developed into full-band arrangements spanning from folk rock to hard rock while still featuring his unique style of guitar playing. EARTHSHIP consists of five full-band tracks; and in honor of the fans that have been with him from the start, a stripped-down acoustic version of each song will accompany the release.

While he daylights as a computer programmer, Erhard’s music showcases his authentic, organic style, honed since his childhood in the southern Colorado town of Del Norte—a rural community of 1,800 people on the western edge of the San Luis Valley. More commonly known as “The Valley,” it’s a section of Colorado hot with alien observatories and cosmic undertones. Here, in isolation, Erhard ground out a sound that is entirely his own, but this small town was no place to pursue a music career or develop his budding interest in programming, driving him to the Front Range of Colorado.
