Marty O'Reilly & The Old Soul Orchestra is a quartet from the central coast of California. They combine influences from many genres, from early American roots music to contemporary psychedelic rock. The result is a sound that feels unique and familiar at the same time. Their latest release "Signal Fires" is their third full length album- a collection of songs about love, the value of memories and time — all written amidst a world which seems to be literally burning at every turn.
The group features Marty O'Reilly on vocals and guitar, Ben Berry on upright bass, Matt Goff on drums and percussion, and Chris Lynch on violin and keys.
Zelma Stone is the San Francisco-based music project of Bay Area native Chloe Zelma Studebaker. Written in pre-pandemic San Francisco and recorded in Fall 2020 in Stinson Beach with producer Maryam Qudus (Spacemoth), ‘The Best’ EP is the culmination of Studebaker’s years of songwriting and performing since starting Zelma Stone from her childhood home in 2017. Where 2020’s lauded ‘Dreamland’ EP was a backward glance at fresh grief, ‘The Best’ is an homage to what's ahead, containing songs about loss but also discovery, the shedding of old identities and relationships to make space for an evolving self. The tracks on 'The Best' deepen with each listen, from flourishes of pedal steel to one-liners that stick like tattoos, asserting Zelma Stone as a captivating voice in contemporary songwriting.
