Selwyn Birchwood
Selwyn Birchwood
Blues fireball Selwyn Birchwood is a guitar and lap steel playing bundle of pure energy. He delivers his original songs with a revival tent preacher’s fervor and a natural storyteller’s charisma made all the more impactful by his raw, unvarnished vocals. Since the 2014 release of his Alligator Records debut, Don’t Call No Ambulance, Birchwood has set the contemporary blues world on fire. His high-octane blues—at once deeply rooted, funky and up-to-the-minute—are played with passion and honest emotion. With his band feeding off his drive and exuberance, the striking 6’3” young man with his trademark Afro roams the stage (often barefoot), ripping out memorable guitar licks with ease. His ability to win over an audience—any audience—is proven night after night on the bandstand. With his warm, magnetic personality, Birchwood is as down-to-earth as his music is fun, thought-provoking and vital. His mission is to spread his music far and wide, to share his joy, to play his heart out, and to push the blues into the future. “There’s nothing I’d rather be doing than playing the blues,” he says. “And I try to convey that with every song and with every performance.”
Girls Love Rockets
Girls Love Rockets
Girls Love Rockets is Indie/Alternative pop music from Seattle, WA. The SAT sound has been compared to modern groups like Flaming Lips, The Shins, Ben Folds and Phish , as well as classic artists like Steely Dan, The Beatles, and early Chicago.

GLR's songs are engaging and playful, characterized by energetic and sophisticated riffs, close harmonies and witty lyrics. Arrangements are original and complex, centered around a strong rhythm section (drums, bass, guitar and piano), with electronic sounds added for color and emphasis. The result is a sound that exudes sophistication and intelligence, while still being accessible and extremely listenable.
