Particle Kid

Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, visual artist, and activist Micah Nelson has a remarkable output that spans the creative spectrum unlike few others.

The Los-Angeles based visionary has released five albums as Particle Kid, including his March 2020 live concert recording, Live! Underground. His fourth Particle Kid studio album, Window Rock, was released July 2019 and contains nine original songs. His previous albums – self-titled debut Particle Kid, Everything Is Bullshit, and Particle War – are just part of the catalog of work Nelson has amassed with other artists and musicians.

He is an active member of his brother’s band, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, as well as part of Neil Young’s band, touring and recording with Young as well as part of his full-length film Paradox.

For Record Store Day in 2018, he released Lucky Wheel, a split 12” vinyl collaboration with punk legend and X co-founder John Doe. He created the cover art on his father Willie Nelson’s latest studio album First Rose of Spring.

On tour year round, Particle Kid has headlined shows around the world as well as opened for The Flaming Lips, Tinariwen, Margo Price, and Sheryl Crow, and been part of the line up for Luck Reunion, UTOPiAfest, and the Outlaw Music Festival. Many of his music videos also feature his work as a visual artists in painting and animation.

As an activist, Nelson has served on the National Hemp Association’s Board of Directors, participates in Farm Aid events and their annual music festival, and combined the missions of both organizations by spearheaded a Change.org petition championing the Industrial Hemp Farming Act which became law in December 2018.

Rolling Stone magazine hailed Micah as one of their “New Classics” – “The creative visionaries celebrated here come from the worlds of music, acting, comedy, sports and more. …they share a refusal to be contained by the rules of the past as they define the territory of the future.”

Golden Buddha

It’s a long story …

They are the originators of the Mantra-Rock sound of the 90’s which has now infused itself into the consciousness of the new millennia.

With Teo Castro on Guitar and Vocals, Billy Stobo on Drums, and Jeffrey Dimmick on Bass, Golden Buddha becomes a mixture of ancient tones and modern sounds, interwoven with funky tribal rhythms and a hard biting edge.

  • The pulsating grooves of the bass are sensual and erotic.
  • The unrelenting drums are thunderous and melodic.
  • The soaring guitars and mystic vocals are penetrating and chaotic.

Paul Bushnell

Irish born, Californian.based, session bass player, producer, and music director. Even though he was classically trained at University College Dublin, and appears for a wide variety of artists, he has a preference for playing rock-style bass. Bushnell played the ‘live’ circuit in Ireland before he got his ‘big break’ through appearing in, and scoring for, the film ‘The Commitments’. However, this did not instantly lead to his studio career taking off, that came some years later after his move to Los Angeles.

Among those for whom he has worked, are: Phil Collins, Elton John, Alanis Morissette, Nelly Furtado, and Céline Dion. Since 2002, he has been the bass player and music director for Faith Hill.
