Glenn Jones

Glenn Jones is a unique voice working in the decades long tradition of American primitive music. What distinguishes Glenn from the many devotees to this style is the combination of expressive playing and technical skill, most notably his inventive use of alternative tunings and partial capos. Glenn's songs are evocative and redolent and convey a wide array of emotions, many times in one song, without saying a word.

Chuck Johnson

Chuck Johnson is a composer and musician residing in Oakland. He approaches his work with a ear towards the faults and instabilities that reveal latent beauty, with a focus on American primitive guitar, electronics, and "folk minimalist" composition

Crystalline Roses

Crystalline Roses is a project of A.Pasquarosa who has released recordings on VDSQ, Feeding Tube Records & Ascetic House
