It’s a long story …

They are the originators of the Mantra-Rock sound of the 90’s which has now infused itself into the consciousness of the new millennia.

With Teo Castro on Guitar and Vocals, Billy Stobo on Drums, and Jeffrey Dimmick on Bass, Golden Buddha becomes a mixture of ancient tones and modern sounds, interwoven with funky tribal rhythms and a hard biting edge.

  • The pulsating grooves of the bass are sensual and erotic.
  • The unrelenting drums are thunderous and melodic.
  • The soaring guitars and mystic vocals are penetrating and chaotic.

Years of playing clubs and festivals throughout Europe (Montreux Jazz, Burg Hersberg, Paleo, etc.) with psychedelic icons such as Damo Suzuki from “Can”, Hawkwind, Gong, Guru Guru, Mann, Faust, and Birth Control, as well as touring The States with bands like Jane’s Addiction , Queens of the Stone Age, Perfect Circle, Audioslave, Incubus, Kings of Leon and more has galvanized these three men into one simple and powerful musical force. And, it has given them the great opportunity to share their music with thousands of thankful people …


The Zephaniah Stringfield Band

Performing with raw intensity and moving dynamism, Zephaniah Stringfield sings stories about his travels from the SF Bay Area to New Mexico and beyond, weaving biblical references and archetypes of traditional folklore with stories of highways, girls and greyhound buses. His songs echo bluegrass and country music, rock-a-billy and the blues, but his clever lyrics and up-front delivery are both modern and relevant.

It is music both hauntingly familiar and uniquely his own.

Paracosmic is a collaborative project of musicians from various parts of California and the United States. The band’s sound can be described as a funk-based improv flow, incorporating rock and blues with a keen taste for the psychedelic soundscape.

Forming through the deep seeded dreams of 4 individuals, Paracosmic began in 2015 in Los Angeles through mutual friends in the southern California music scene and festival circuits. Since then, the band has grown to a 6 piece and along with playing several staple venues in Los Angeles, are making their way onto Festival line-ups with their favorite artists.

So what does the name mean? Paracosmic is the adjective of the word Paracosm, which is a detailed, imaginary world. Within that concept the 6 musicians aim to take you on a very lucid yet imaginary funk voyage through your mind and reality simultaneously for a rockin good time!

Keep your ears peeled for PARACOSMIC.

Bittersweet Highway is the singer-songwriter duo of Rene’ Janiece and Wayne McKinzie. They hail from a thriving metropolis of 13 that scratches the border of Southern Colorado and Northern New Mexico. Living and traveling along the edges of America, theirs is music that rises from the fringes, in place and in style. It crosses genres and blends the sounds that have influenced these two as individuals, combining to create something strikingly original. It is no wonder they call their particular brand of music “Borderland Americana.”  And this Borderland Americana is also artful Americana – visually evocative and carefully crafted. This is music that is thought about, and music that makes us think. More importantly, this is music that urges us to feel. Poetic lyrics. Smooth, resonant vocals. Surprising phrasing. Wanderlust and loss, longing and belonging, irony and epiphany rise and fall through imagery and sound as varied and wide as the land they call home. Melodic conversations are revealed; evoke the stories that hide in the gravel and grass of the roadside. Live, Bittersweet Highway’s relaxed and intimate rapport with each other and their audience allows for a wonderfully interactive experience that speaks to the journeys of the heart, the bitter and the sweet that are scattered along the road of life.

Wolf Schubert-K. is an old hand of his genre and yet an insider tip. The singer-songwriter has always carved out his own niche in European rock and folk music.

In the 90s Wolf was on the road as a pioneer of what was then called “Alternative Country”. With the DIRTY BIRDIES, the COSMIC TWINS and the American songwriter/author Bob Lyng, he toured France, Belgium and the Netherlands.

After a ten-year-long, search-driven recovery, Wolf returned with his “Sacred Blues” album in 2009, clarified and much more thoughtful.

After a total of 4 albums, “Free Spirit”, a rough folk album with guests from the singer/songwriter scene, including his wife BINE MORGENSTERN, is out now.

Moderner Surrealismus

Morbide Kunst aus Frankfurt / Germany … Oder - wie man den Teufel an die Wand malt. Zeitgenössische und Moderne Kunst vom netten Künstler aus der Nachbarschaft. 

Ich male schon mein ganzes Leben lang - habe aber erst in den letzten Jahren angefangen meine Arbeiten aktiv zu veröffentlichen. Warum so viele Schädel… ? Keine Ahnung. Wahrscheinlich weil ich damit aktuell besser meine Meinung ausdrücken kann. 


Modern Surrealism

Morbid art from Frankfurt Germany … Or - how to paint the devil on the wall. Contemporary and modern art by the nice artist from the neighborhood. 

I have been painting my whole life - but I have only started to actively publish my work in recent years. Why so many skulls...? No idea. Probably because I can currently better express my opinion.
