The Selmanaires
Twin brothers Herb and Jason Harris met Tommy Chung in Atlanta in 2000. The first house they practiced in together was at 73 Selman Street in Reynoldstown, hence, the name of the band. In the summer of 2003, they played their first set of original material at a house show in Grant Park (Herb and Jason's house) under the name the Selmanaires.

The initial Selmanaire sound was subtle, soft, and exotic. The first few shows featured Herb on acoustic guitar, Tommy on stand-up bass, and Jason on Wurlitzer electric piano, drums, bongos and various other percussive instruments. All three sang. After a series of quiet shows in Atlanta dives, the Selmanaires simplified and amplified the set-up (electric guitar, electric bass, and drum kit, with all three still singing). The response was noticeably different.

What started off as a more ambitious, exotic, and soft sound has evolved into a dancier, more-potent-but-still-spacious rock sound. The Selmanaires still play acoustic sets from time to time at weddings (seriously) and at various art functions.
Omni - the band, not the hotel - are from the former home of the Braves: Atlanta. Playing lo-fi pop that channels the spectre of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, Omni brings you back to an era where any sane person was reeling from the unfulfilled promise of the Space Age and Age of Aquarius bleeding into the looming threat of "Morning in America.” Omni distills the buzz and grit that snakes through the best of Television, Devo, and Pylon into surprisingly danceable, hook-laden slabs of raw, angular, sonic bliss. It’s still the summer of '78, and pushing the roots of rock & roll to its limits remains in vogue. "Deluxe" serves as a fresh reminder that rock music can work outside of blues rooted, formulaic progressions without playing it safe behind a wall of effects. Arty enough to impress record enthusiasts, yet melodically attractive enough to transcend to those who’ve never asked: “’Sister Midnight’ or ‘Red Money’?”

Their debut album "Deluxe" is out now via Trouble In Mind Records.
Anna Kramer & the Lost Cause
Voted Best Local Singer/Songwriter 2005/2006 (Creative Loafing Atlanta), her songs are "performed with her pure southern voice and crisp guitar, with the ambiance of vintage country-folk recordings". A fixture in the Atlanta community for over 15 years, Anna Kramer currently tours internationally as a solo artist, with her band, Anna Kramer and The Lost Cause, and as lead guitarist in Shantih Shantih ("A four woman sonic force in surf rock, bringing in reverb-washed guitar riffs to create a sweepingly hypnotic international sound..."). Her many noted performances include a recent duet with the band Weezer, as well as sharing the bill with a range of acts from icons, Ronnie Spector, Wanda Jackson and Country Legend Charlie Louvin, to Band of Horses, Fleet Foxes, Andrew Bird, Mudhoney and Tommy Ramone of The Ramones. As she showcases her diverse style around the world, she continues work on her third release.
