The Cordovas
The Cordovas
The Cordovas are: Joe Firstman, Lucca Soria, Jon Loyd, Toby Weaver, and Graham Spillman. Based in Nashville, TN, Cordovas sound is rooted in harmony, songwriting and musicianship.

Firstman released two albums on Atlantic Records in the early 2000's including the acclaimed War of Women. 24-year-old songsmith, Des Moines' Lucca Soria writes, sings and plays lead guitar. He has several compositions on the forthcoming Cordovas album. Keyboardist Jon Loyd, a native of Macon, GA, sings high notes and possesses a piano style that makes the band’s sound recognizable and unforgettable. Born in Redondo Beach California, Graham Spillman is on drums. The 25-year-old Berkeley College of Music drop-out also sings and pens tunes for the group.

Cordovas will release a new full length album produced by two-time Grammy Nominee Kenneth Pattengale, of Milk Carton Kids, spring 2018.
Lost Beach
Lost Beach
Hailing from the beaches south of Los Angeles, LOST BEACH combines the sentimentality of sun in your face, while pining for the unknown in what we call indie rock n roll. Native Texan Jonny Perdue came to California to further his pursuit in music, finding guitarist and collaborator Steve Stout via a chance encounter while both playing for siblings of two different bands. During his time on the coast, Jonny met Hermosa-raised drummer Davey Latter and bassist Zacc West, also linking up with keys player Davey Allen after seeing his performance at a soundcheck in LA. “Perdue,” meaning lost in French, and the band’s residence on the coast inspired their moniker LOST BEACH. From Otis Redding to Elliott Smith, the group draws inspiration from the sounds of older records and a DIY mentality of self-production.
The band will be releasing singles in the coming months in anticipation of their self produced full length LP later this year.
Jeffrey Scott Joslin II
Jeffrey Scott Joslin II
The summer of 2017 was a transformative time for Jeffrey Scott Joslin II. In the midst of what he thought was a creative upswing in his life (though not including any restful sleep) it unfortunately morphed into his worst nightmare. Jeffrey found himself suddenly on the inside of a psychiatric hospital being told he was delusional, hallucinating and then eventually came to learn he had lifelong overlooked bipolar tendencies.

Like other inspired and talented musicians (Mozart, Beethoven, George Gershwin, Brian Wilson, Ray Davies of The Kinks and Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd) Jeffrey knew he would have to come to terms with his mental condition and make it work for his art rather than against it.

Being a musician who is bipolar allows Jeffrey to open himself to the myriad talents and creativity he possesses. The bipolar mind is considerably ambidextrous and can maintain an astonishing array of gifts that coalesce into cohesive art forms.

Not only does Jeffrey play guitar, bass, drums and keyboard on his Americana driven songs; Jeffrey also produces, records and mixes his albums as well as composes, writes the lyrics and develops and executes the art direction.

After three solid releases billed as Jef Joslin: For Your Eyes Only, Come Out West and 30; Jeffrey is back in the studio (The Skipper Room) to record his concept album, Found at Sea.

Jeffrey is a seasoned live performer and can be found regularly playing in and around LA venues like The Hotel Café, Residuals and Saint Rocke.

At his heart Jeffrey is a born activist and donates his time and effort to many worthy causes like recently donating the song “Stronger” to the Susan G. Komen Foundation through Songfinch’s fundraising compilation.

In 2016 Jeffrey composed the soundtrack for the award-winning suicide prevention feature film The Last Train which starred Hollywood good guy Lou Diamond Phillips.

Jeffrey also performed at The Homeboy Industries fundraiser for an audience of 1,500 elite donors in LA and his music was a highlight at an event for The Children’s Defense Fund spearheaded by host Conan O’Brien and director JJ Abrams.

Currently Jeffrey’s planning a month long release of jazzy, modern interpretations of holiday standards as well as further building The Skipper Room into a dream music box with his brother, fellow musician and studio owner Justice Joslin.

A proud husband to actress and filmmaker Ciera Danielle; Jeffrey is father to Feather Rose (who is immortalized in the song of the same name) and enjoys spending time with his family and friends at home in Redondo Beach.

The easygoing beach lifestyle helps Jeffrey keep his balance in mind, body and spirit and inspired “California Gold”, his new single scheduled for release in early 2018.
