Crimson Crux

Formed in the Winter of 2011, Crimson Crux is a Christian/Folk/Rock group from the High Desert of Southern CA, consisting of husband/wife duo Nathan Petty (founder/songwriter/acoustic guitars) &

 Tanya Petty (vocals) accompanied by Paul Martinez (lead guitars) & Daniel Flores (percussion). In May 2012, Crimson Crux entered into the studio with their longtime friend/engineer Eric Dorse from The Noize Lab to record their debut 17-track indie LP, "Through Divers Temptations". 

In May 2013, after months of labouring endlessly in the studio, Crimson Crux's debut indie LP "Through Divers Temptations" was pressed, released via CD Baby & distributed to their various online partners currently carrying the LP. 

Immediately after the album's release, the band embarked on two local tours that same year ("The Revival Tour 2013" & "Feed The Bears Tour 2013" ), followed by another studio session in February 2014 to re-record/re-release the single "Ye Serpent of Olde", followed up once again by extensive local touring via local community outreaches & venues such as the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds & the local "2014 HALO Festival" at Mavericks Stadium. 

In October of 2014, Crimson Crux entered into the studio once again to record their sophmore EP "Of The Times & Seasons" which was released late March 2015, followed by a music video for their first single "Not of the Night" off the new EP. 

Today, Crimson Crux is heavily involved with participating/performing in various local outreaches around the High Desert of Southern CA & still continues to be the music ministry of Nate & Tanya Petty with more music & lyrics that are yet to be written..

Of The Times & Seasons" is a lyrical depiction of this world's present state, human heartaches & the truth of Divine hope presented musically in a Western/Steampunk style
The tracks "Not of the Night" & "Down the Road" deal with the state that this present world is in, as well as the mindset of this current generation as prophesied in the Bible. 

Whereas, the tracks "Shake You Off" & "Through These Eyes" describe the longing to experience the true love that God has for us & the way He truly sees us. 

Finally, the tracks "Ye Serpent of Olde" & "Scarred'' deal with specific struggles & emotions that many of us as humans endure.

-Nathan Petty (Crimson Crux)

Van T

  "ocean blues..."

If it were possible to meld the heart of Mazzy Star, the soul of PJ Harvey, and pure poetic prowess of Throwing Muses’ Tanya Donelly into a solitary star she’d go by the name Chantel Van T.
In 2013 Van T played Oppikoppi’s acoustic Ray-Ban Stage. Twenty-four months later she’s signed, sealed, and delivered a five track EP, Tides.
Van T saw the release of her highly anticipated, full-length debut album, We’re Still Running in 2015. Recorded by Matthew Fink (Matthew Mole, Tailor, The Black Hotels, Shadowclub) and Chris Tucker at Dark Pop, strings captured at Jazz Worx, with production concluded by Fink, "We’re Still Running" kept good company in attracting some of South Africa’s finest talent to the Van T pool. 11 unfaltering, beautiful tracks, each with a tale, a purpose, and armed with ability to turn lovers of detailed and delightfully engaging stories, sung in song, into loyalists.

Chelsey Danfield


A couple of weeks ago we came across a single release from a new artist from Ontario, Canada, Chelsey Danfield.

‘All We Ever Do’ was intriguing because it sounded like something that Taylor Swift would have recorded about 3 years ago. A good pop country song with fiddles and a slight ‘attitude’ about the vocals.

She has now released her debut album ‘Cowboy’ which doesn’t include her single or the B side ‘Headlights’, but does include hugely enjoyable traditional country dancehall tunes that deserve our attention.

It seems that the Taylor connection barely extends beyond the single. Chelsey imposes her own style and personality on the album and it’s as good a debut as we have heard for some time. Crank up the speakers and cue ‘Die Alone’ which opens the album.

I defy you to sit perfectly still throughout this one! A mix of classic country and rockabilly that combines to produce an authentic dancehall favorite. ‘Drank The Town Dry’ takes the pace down a notch, to begin with but soon explodes into another swinger that retains the infectious toe tapper that won’t disappoint.

She seems to be rubbing shoulders with the Nashville players having shared a stage with Little Big Town, Kenny Chesney, and Dwight Yoakum, so let’s hope that this album is the start of something special.

There is certainly room at a higher table for Chelsey and I certainly recommend checking this one out on the usual streaming platforms.

Artist Biography

 From the   fields of   her family’s   soybean and   miniature pony   farm, this   24-­‐year-­‐old   singer/performer/songwriter has  just released  her  1st  album entitled  “Cowboy”  featuring   12  original songs.  It is  currently available  on streaming  and retail  outlets worldwide.    

“Growing up  outside of  a  one stoplight  farming town  called  Maidstone  Ontario,  I  realized quickly  that country  music told  my family's  story.  It was  who we  were and  what we  did.   Whether it be   bailing   hay,   riding   a   skittish   pony,   attending   a   funeral,   anniversary,   or   birthday  party,  country  music  was  how  we  communicated,  celebrated,  mourned,  worked  
and  lived.”    

“The songs  that  I  write are inspired  by the lives  of my  grandparents and  sometimes slightly   exaggerated recollections  of events  that have  occurred in  my personal  life.  Regardless if  it be  about an  honorary ex or  a  valiant escape  from the hospital,  my songs  come from  a  really genuine  place.  I'm  passionate  about  country  music  that  tells  a  story  and  either  transports   you  to  another  place  and  time  or  makes  you  fall  in  love  with  where  you  are  at  that  very   moment.“  

 Chelsey has shared  stages with the  likes of  Little  Big  Town,  Dwight  Yoakum,  Mark  Chesnutt,   Kenny  Chesney,  Lone  Star and most  recently at  Ft.  Irwin  Army  Training  Base at  Ft.  Irwin   Nevada for  four thousand  U.S.  Army troops  opening for  Blue  Oyster  Cult.    

Chelsey hooked  up with  Billboard  Hot  100  #1  hit producer  and former  Iggy  Pop/David   Bowie lead  guitarist  Stacy  Heydon.  This collaboration  led to  her  1st  album release  “Cowboy”   on  AMG  Records. 

 Her  “Cowboy”  album was  recorded in  one of  Nashville’s  treasured location  Ronnie’s  Place.   Ronnie  Milsap’s  studio has  been a  mainstay in  the  Nashville recording  community for  over   50  years  and continues  to inspire  modern day  artists with  the same walls  of resonance  that recorded  and shaped  the familiar  sounds of  the legends  of country  music’s  past and  present. 

Chelsey and  the band  laid down  every track  “live off  the floor”  capturing a  live feel  ensuring an honest and   true musical   rendition targeting   the very   heart and   soul of   each song
