And, as it does when an artist tastes success, the road beckoned. Seattle. Green Bay. Austin. Bangor. Gracin found himself thrust into the national spotlight.

Now, with the release of his new single, “Good For You,” Gracin is back on Country Radio – a format that has been very good to him – alongside the digital service providers that were treated him well on his last digital release “Nothin’ Like Us.” The release is a partnership between Reviver (David Lee Murphy, Michael Tyler, Tenille Arts) and his own Revel Road label. With the new single, Josh Gracin is armed with the best music of his career. It’s a song he’s been in search of for a while and he knows that once listeners hear it, they will be hooked, as well.
“Good For You” is available now digitally here , and impacts Country radio on November 5th. So, you’ve heard the hits. You’ve seen him live on stage. But, now with his new music, he’s ready to impact lives. So, get ready, because you are truly about to know Josh Gracin as never before!

SATURDAY, JANUARY 22
4:00 PM

Lochness Monster is an Alternative Rock band from South Florida. The band consists of Bruce Donaldson (Singer), Justin Shaner (Guitar), Federico Carradini (Bass), and Rene Rivera (Drums). Justin Shaner formed Lochness Monster in 2015 and in 2016 their debut album “Fables” was released. The album was recorded by gold record producer James Paul Wisner who also worked with bands, such as, Dashboard Confessional, Paramore, and Underoath. The album received radio play and it peaked at #16 on the CMJ (College Music Journal) charts, remaining on the charts for several months. In 2018 the band re-entered the studio with Wisner to work on their self-titled EP and the band released a music video for “Calling Out” and “Farewell Past” off the EP. The singles’ “Defiance” and “Farewell Past” played on the “Launch Pad Live Top 20 Countdown” and charted in the #1 and #2 positions for several months.

Lochness Monster was awarded Best Rock Band at the 2019 Oski Awards in Miami, FL and was chosen to play at one of Florida’s largest music festivals, SunFest, with One Republic and Keith Urban headlining. In 2020 Lochness Monster was planning to play Rock in Roma, an international rock festival, but the festival was delayed due to the pandemic.

From 2019 to 2021 Lochness Monster entered the studio again to work on their 2nd EP titled “Working for a Future” which will include 3 new songs (Atlas, Glass Jar, and Running Away) and an alternate version of one of their fan favorites, “Pendulum,” with Bruce Donaldson on vocals. Guitarist, Justin Shaner, states “our new songs on this 2nd EP are a result of us not giving up on songwriting through covid and finding creative ways to continue our passion through a time that was difficult to get together. We went through numerous remote mixing sessions, and once we could get together again, we continued to do in person mixing sessions. We had a new production sound we were going for that was more stripped down then our previous releases, so we decided to entirely produce these new songs ourselves at Rain Cat Recordings in Stuart, FL and Bull Productions in Miami, FL. Though it was a longer process then usual, we were able to get this new material right where we envisioned it to sound, and these studios really did a great job of capturing the music in a raw, authentic way.” “Working for a Future” is set to be released soon but the exact date has not been announced yet. Andy Van Dette is currently mastering the new songs in New York City. Lochness Monster stays very active in the live music scene, especially across South Florida, and can be seen playing live throughout the year.

INDIGO DREAMERS

TUESDAY, JANUARY 25
1, 3 & 5 PM

Coming from different corners of the world, Jamie, a South Florida native, and Pouya Pourtahmasbi, an Iranian transplant, serendipitously met while studying music at a university in South Florida. It didn't take long for a musical spark to ignite between the two as they collaborated on music projects and exchanged thoughts on life. After graduation, the two produced an EP for four of Jamie’s songs in addition to exploring the South Florida music scene, playing shows at various venues alongside percussionist Reza Filsoofi and guitarist Austin Mann.

In 2014, Jamie won the iTunes Music Festival Competition for her song “Blue”, which inspired a new record. She employed the help of Pouya to produce, arrange, and play bass once again, but this time it would be a more arduous adventure. Three years later they conceived their debut album Lessons of Blue, a story of the joys and pain of maturation. On this record, the duo tenderly weaves together the past with the clarity of the present in a unique blend of rock, pop, R&B, and orchestral sounds. The album never falls short of heartfelt lyrics, soaring vocals, unique use of the bass, and crafted arrangements. Indigo Dreamers first single “Blue” premiered on AXS and their second single Feeling Good premiered on PopDose, both with great response.

Indigo Dreamers continue to perform in the South Florida area and have opened up for both Dar Williams and Shawn Mullins at the Broward Performing Arts Center and performed at TedXBocaRaton in October 2019. In February 2020 they released a single and music video titled “Marriage of Sound”, which highlights the collaboration of artists who are separated by geographical and political borders. Indigo Dreamers latest release is a single and live music video titled “Time On My Hands”.
