Jon Sortland and Brian Belier accidentally became a band while singing Duran Duran’s ‘Rio’ at a Karaoke bar in San Francisco’s Japantown. When they woke up from their whiskey hangovers they realised it hadn’t been a dream, the people in the bar (all five of them) had cheered for them, and they had stumbled on their calling.
San Francisco musician and producer Nick Andre has been in the music business for more than a decade, and is co-founder, with Eric aka E da Boss (Myron & E, The Pendletons) of Slept On Records. Having produced the likes of Gift Of Gab, Lateef The Truth Speaker, and many more, he’s established for himself a reputation as a hard worker. Now he’s released ‘The Mix Up’, a fusion of jazz and hip hop that perfectly encapsulates his talents.
Everything about San Francisco’s The Bobbleheads feels effortlessly classic: from their 12 string Rickenbacker guitars, to their sweet sweet multi-part harmonies, to the joy and love that emanates from their live performances, and to every single one of their releases. Formed in 2003, their latest single, is a hopeful track from their most recent album, ‘Myths & Fables’.
