Surreal Nation is a five-piece, female fronted, indie rock band from the Philadelphia area. They bring a unique blend of high energy indie rock with a bit of jazz progressions, no doubt influenced by Paul, Jackson, and Gene’s history of playing in jazz bands. Just a few years ago, Paul Joseph and Nikki Nation were performing as an acoustic folk duo. Jackson Vari, Kevin Curry, and Gene Nelson were added over the next two years. The band now plays throughout the country. Their dynamic new EP, I Know Better, marks a high point in their evolution into a multi-faceted 5 piece band. No Depression Magazine branded it as “a winner”. Beat Magazine described it as “bound to be one of the most talked about indie records of the year.” The chemistry between these musicians is incredible and it has allowed them to take their music to places they never would have imagined! A must have for any music collection..
International Singer Songwriter Composer Clara Bellino is releasing her fifth album: “Unexpected”. A thought-out contribution to a field Ms. Bellino has always been passionate about, and for which she has traveled the world, “Unexpected” is unexpected in more ways than one.
Like most creative adventures the recording of “Unexpected” took some ..unexpected turns. With no apology for the combination of styles, countries, sounds, their origins, instruments, languages, or themes, “Unexpected” sets up a free platform for Clara to share the music in her ears and heart and build a universal musical bridge.
