Tina Marie Williams
In a world run by auto-tune, Tina Marie Williams proves that natural talent refuses to be manipulated. Her gentle voice lands softly on the ears of listeners, while her words are daggers of truth about the world, and the subtle issues she has witnessed. As if Tom Waits' lyrics made love to Jeff Buckley's guitar, Tina Marie comes at you like a poetic folk musician with a bad attitude and a strong message. Drawing inspiration from her hometown of Buffalo, NY, Tina's lyrics and voice are haunting in their expression, yet uncannily observant and brutally honest. With help from renowned producer Armand Petri (Goo Goo Dolls, Sixpence None The Richer), and with the release of her new single, "Skeleton City," Tina is speaking for a generation searching for a voice.
So Far So Good
Influenced by 90's rock and a love of late night mischief, pop-rock group So Far So Good banded together after an inspiring shift at T.G.I. Friday’s. The band resides in Buffalo, New York, and consists of the outgoing lyricist Craig McDorman, musically driven Jeff Foley, energetic Rob Buskirk, and the creative Ryan (Urwin) Urbank. So Far So Good made their debut in 2009 after gaining the attention of award-winning record producer Armand Petri. Taking their own slant on the music of their youth, So Far So Good has written a number of original singles. From “Last Call” off their first EP to “Something New” from their first studio EP Through the Static.
Petri, the band’s producer states, “So Far So Good is the best band I have worked with since The Goo Goo Dolls. It is composed of some of the most talented songwriters and easy-going musicians I’ve ever had the pleasure of collaborating with."
