Sweet Relief

Something’s going on at The Lost Ark Studio. Some kind of musical vortex that has drawn in the likes of Transfer, The Silent Comedy, Nena Anderson, Low Volts, Jesse Lamonaca and The Dime Novels, Blackout Party, Stephen Ray and The Slicks, and The Heavy Guilt, to name a few. Every day they are shoulder to shoulder with the sweat, blood, tears, and hard work that someone who chooses the path of an artist puts in. They can relate to those who elect an unconventional road and the price someone has to pay to be a working musician in this town. So what else can they do? How about some Sweet Relief.

for the sender

Imagine getting a letter from a stranger. And in the letter, the sender exposes a side of themselves that not many, if any, get to see. Be it from a director of a homeless shelter or the wife of a police officer who was slain; or an Aussie medic serving victims of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti; or from a woman who lost her soul mate and wrote him letters every autumn to commemorate his passing. These are the letters that inspired singer/songwriter Alex Woodard to create For The Sender.


Austin TX

During the week of March 9 through March 18, 2012, the music world descended on Austin, Texas for South by Southwest. We posed 5 questions to the San Diegans who made the journey and lived to tell the tale. Some of the tales are twisted; some make sense; some don’t; some are insightful; some make you think; and some are just down right disturbing.

Nena’s subtle vocal approach grabs your ear before its slow and sultry pace moves into a soft, swinging dance. She establishes her ability to tug at the heart strings early on, using an unassuming vocal style that lulls you into a comfortable listening place.
