Cristina Vane

Based out of Nashville, Tennessee, Cristina Vane is taking the town by storm with her unique blend of blues and folk. Originally from Europe, she draws from such a great host of influences that it is impossible to compare her music to any one artist. That being said, she draws decisively from country blues, delta blues, and American folk music, creating her own flavor of the blues. Whether on the Venice boardwalk busking by the beach or on a stage in Mississippi, her signature resonator bottleneck playing and powerful vocals are unmistakable and unforgettable.

Before falling in love with the blues, Cristina spent her childhood and adolescence studying classical voice, music theory, piano and flute, ever consumed by music. She has love for many kinds of music, ranging from baroque classical to punk and metal. This theme continues throughout her career today; while she predominantly plays slide guitar, she employs fingerpicking, acoustic, electric guitar techniques, as well as clawhammer banjo playing.

Milo Gonzalez

Milo Gonzalez is a guitarist born of a multi-generational family of artists and musicians native to Venice Beach. With his mother being a rock vocalist, and his step father being a founding member of the renowned hardcore punk band Black Flag, Milo grew up around heavy rock music.

Inspired to play both electric and acoustic guitar, Milo discovered a deep love for ‪flamenco‬ and classical guitar music, finding it’s dark, emotive, and aggressive qualities alluring and similar to that of his rock roots. Milo has developed a unique and hard to define style of music that derives as much influence from legendary guitar virtuosos such as ‪Paco De Lucia‬, and ‪Vicente Amigo‬, as it does from rock/metal/psychedelic legends like ‪Black Sabbath‬ and ‪Radiohead‬.

Vernon West

Originally from Boston, Vernon began songwriting before he could competently play any instruments. Then after years of teeth-cutting he emerged in the Beantown music scene at the helm of his multiple music projects.

In 2016 he released his first full length self-produced album “Introspecter” under no label beside the one on the tag of his shirt. In 2018 he moved out to LA to pursue the larger musical pond and is already a part of three up and coming projects, “Moon in the Milk” and “Mexico City Heartbreak” playing drums, in addition to his solo singer/songwriter project.

His second full length album is currently in the works and his back catalogue of original songs is long enough to fill a record store. His smooth jazzy vocals compliment his blues-rock guitar style, and his lyricism will keep you philosophizing long after listening.
