Native Guitars Tour
Native Guitars Tour
John Trudell is iconic and was residing in Santa Clara, CA upon his death in 2015. We have FNX Channel working with our artists and support for the show. Also have some other national publications picking up and helping promote now that we are in the stretch. We will most likely add another act to get more local support. We will have our street team out day of the show and have already been promoting through our internal networks. We are working on schedules to get a celebrity MC for the night and will promote that as part of our promotions. Thanks again for supporting the music and please let me know if you have any questions.
Jir Project
Jir Project
The Jir Project Band have won steadily escalating acclaim for their multi-dimensional Blues-Rock performances and have a steady fan base through the southwest region. Their sophomore release, “Sun Child” garnered a North American Indigenous Image Award for Outstanding Blues Album. They’ve earned ovations from music devotees along their tour through the southwest and are embarking on new frontiers with the 2016 release of “The Pueblo” album.

The Jir project approaches music with respect and humor. The trio uses positivity and some ninja skills to create the blues influenced music. “The music is all about the people… we create our set off the vibe the crowd is sharing with us”. We enjoy talking with our audience and putting that back into the performance. “the universe wants us be happy… it really does!”
Raye Zaragoza
Raye Zaragoza
Western society, both culturally and politically, currently feels like an endless spiral into disarray, a feeling compounded by apathy toward the pain suffered by so many people around the world. These issues have motivated multinational artist Raye Zaragoza to express her passion for activism through her creative work and to become a beacon of light for the ignored and weary minority.

Zaragoza's Native American (O'odham), Mexican, Taiwanese and Japanese descent endows her with a worldly viewpoint of society and forms the foundation of her passion for activism. In particular, she focuses on the cost of the “American Dream” from the Native American perspective. Zaragoza explains, “So many people have issues with immigrants entering our country. Many fail to realize that if you’re not Native American, you are an immigrant as well. It’s time that we learn from our past and promote peace rather than intolerance.”

She wrote her standout song, “In the River,” as a response to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline near the Standing Rock Sioux reservation in North Dakota. She’s shared it on the front lines of #NoDAPL rallies and at Standing Rock itself, as she stood alongside other activists in below-freezing temperatures. This song quickly became an anthem within the protest community, was awarded an Honesty Oscar for Best Activist Anthem, and was placed in Paste Magazine’s list of Modern Day Protest Songs, alongside respected artists like Kendrick Lamar and A Tribe Called Quest. Her protest anthem has since gained traction within the mainstream music world, and has stimulated the conversations she hopes to see within all communities.

With her upcoming album, Fight For You, Zaragoza continues her quest to feed the passion of protest. As part of that quest, she will allocate a portion of album sales to Indigenous rights organizations. She notes that this album will also be a reflection of her own personal fight toward self-discovery. She further elaborates, “This album is about finding yourself and finding your voice. It’s about getting older and realizing that you can make a difference if you so choose. We have the power to be on the right side of history, and to make sure the atrocities of history do not repeat.”

Fight For You was self-produced with the help of Grammy-nominated engineer Justin Hergett, and was recorded in New York City at Dubway Studios with Chris Montgomery. The album is slated for release on June 28th 2017, following her European tour. The album release show will be at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City on June 30th, 2017.
Scatter Their Own
Scatter Their Own
Formed in 2012, Scatter Their Own is an Alter-Native Rock Duo of Oglala Lakota ancestry from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation of South Dakota. Scatter Their Own has traveled from Canada to Texas, as well as journeyed from Los Angeles to New York City. Scattering their own music to all nations in all directions, Scotti Clifford (Guitarist and Vocalist) and Juliana Brown Eyes (Bassist and Vocalist) were a couple first. But before too long, after playing music together into the night, they realized that they should start a band. Occasionally joined by their teenage children on-stage, it becomes a family effort. Their children, Scotti June (Guitar) and Wahpe Waste Win (Drums), began to delve into their parents' love of music at the tender ages of 12 and 9. After of which, they soon began to perform professionally alongside their parents across North America.

Scotti refers to their music as a modern day buffalo hunt. "In order to provide for my family, we must follow the music. Through my endeavors, I hope to teach my children how to find balance, spiritually and professionally." As a modern day Lakota family who views movement as sacred, Scatter Their Own has no difficulty packing up their Tipi and guitars in order to follow the buffalo.

Aside from being a national touring act, who has appeared at 2015's SXSW Music Festival in Austin TX, Scatter Their Own is currently recording a new album. Their second independent album will peek in on the duo's charismatic connection onstage. This sophomore effort will showcase their endearing harmonies, coupled with moving anthems about their relationship to mother-earth, furthermore inviting you along on their mystical path. Like Scotti & Juliana, Scatter Their Own's music is diverse in influence and style, but bonded together by an undeniably creative journey.

For us, it is all about relationship. The more campfires that we can share as a world community, the stronger our unity. We want to expose the general public to our Oglala Lakota Sioux Tribe by lyrically fusing the concepts and philosophy of our Native American Culture, along with our Bluesy Indie Rock foundation, a style that we have dubbed Alter-Native Rock & Roll. We want to alter the way America thinks about Native Culture in America. For example, we performed with John Trudell, as well as Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros at the 2015 SXSW Presented by: RYOT & Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros present The Native American Showcase. It was a good start, but we feel that we need to be immersed with other great national touring acts where our voice can continued to be heard! In representing modern day Native America, we want people to experience that we can throw down on stage with the best of them. We also want to give the message that "We Are One Race... The Human Race... We Should NOT Race One Another!"
