Hear the story of this Bay Area native, now a pastor, and his iconic journey through music, fame, addiction, and of course – the joys and struggles of family.
Featuring Stevie Nader on vocals, DLRN creates a soundscape within the measure of this song. Sean LaMarr’s rhythmic interplay with the lurching tempo creates a brooding, ominous mood perfect for the subject matter of the song. UPDATE: You can catch DLRN live in Sacramento on 5/29 at Concerts In The Park! For details head here: http://godowntownsac.com/events/signature-events/concerts-in-the-park/
At the end of the day, one of the most important elements to a song is simply whether or not a songwriter really means what he or she says. There’s no doubt Penn Fenn believes every word he sings in this contemplative – and BAMM.tv exclusive – performance of ‘I Remember’. The silence between the vocals and guitar strokes only serves to reinforce the warmth of the song.
In keeping with the bird of prey they’re named after, Oakland’s We Became Owls are really beginning to turn some heads with their heartfelt brand of alt-country Americana. In this exclusive performance of ‘Please Surrender’, Ross Warner (mandolin and backing vocals) provides all the support this sincere, beautifully sad song requires. UPDATE: We Became Owls are playing at the Great American Music Hall TONIGHT (4/17). Get your tickets here!

The music industry has had many changes in the last 10 years. Although some argue about the benefits, for many independent artists, the advantages have made it possible for them to have musical careers that might have not been possible otherwise. In this video, we bring you a compilation of some other interviews we conducted at LAMC 2014 in New York City.
During LAMC 2014, www.BAMM.tv had the pleasure to record a couple of impromptu songs with Esteman! The opportunity appeared and we took it, and what happiness it brought us to have this video. Enjoy this song with us, and fly away to “otro planeta” (another planet).
