Maria Muldaur (Born Maria Garzia Rosa Domenica D’Amato, on September 12, 1943, in Greenwich Village, New York) is a roots-folk singer best known for her 1974 Top Ten hit, "Midnight at the Oasis." Later that year she hit the Top 40 again with a rocking version of "I'm a Woman."
She performed in the early 1960s in Greenwich Village with Bob Dylan, John Sebastian, David Grisman, and Stefan Grossman. Later in the 1960s her distinctive vocals were heard in many of the tracks recorded by Jim Kweskin and the Jug Band. Later in her career, as her voice deepened, the blues was featured in more of her recordings. A vivacious performer, she continues to please small, enthusiastic crowds in her concert tours.

2am Logic does not need to hide behind masks, pyrotechnics, or distortion effects. Their brand of rock is from the soul, and the songs they write are full of heartfelt angst without the doom and gloom. The beautiful blend of lyrical maturity and mind probing guitar licks makes 2am Logic a band that is not afraid to go acoustic, and more than happy to crank the amps up to volume 11.

Synopsis
CB and CB's sister have a funeral for their dog, who recently contracted rabies and was put down after killing 'a little yellow bird' (most likely Woodstock) and nearly biting CB. Unfortunately, the funeral ends in failure as they argue over who should say a prayer for him. CB then goes to Van, who has become a pothead. CB asks where people go after they die. Van, who claims to be Buddhist, says that spirits either dissolve away or get reincarnated (return to life). The next day at school CB asks his friend Matt where we go when we die. Matt gives him a more detailed yet disgusting explanation making it quickly apparent that Matt had become a sex-addict. Beethoven walks by and Matt calls him a fag.
At lunch Marcy and Tricia tell their friends about at upcoming party at Marcy's house. CB goes to Beethoven's practice room to listen to his music. CB then monologues over his dead dog which irritates Beethoven that in return, Beethoven tells CB about how he can't go through his day without someone bullying him in some sort, and tells CB that "messing around with me" means teasing and other sorts. CB makes a truce with Beethoven to reestablish their friendship. CB sits next to Beethoven while he plays, and then CB kisses Beethoven.
CB comes to Beethoven's defense and kisses him again, this time in front of everyone. Outside, Beethoven demands an explanation of what happened. CB says he wanted to do that and in return, Beethoven kisses CB. A few days later, Matt, Tricia, Marcy and Van eat lunch together, and are all stunned at what happened. Matt vows to make Beethoven pay for "messing with [his] best friend's head". CB goes to visit Van's sister, who was institutionalized for setting the Little Red-Haired Girl's hair on fire. CB tells her the whole story. It is also revealed by CB that he and Beethoven had sex after the party.
While Beethoven is practicing, Matt comes in and harasses him for being in love with CB. Matt tells him to stay away from CB, or else. Beethoven says no and calls him by his old nickname, Pigpen. This angers Matt, who he slams the piano top, breaking Beethoven's hands. Later on, they have a talk about Beethoven, who committed suicide. (Matt, meanwhile, was suspended from school for a week.) CB is angered by this and berates them for not being sorry for him all these years. Later on, CB gets a letter from his pen pal. In the letter he tells him that he must keep strong, even in rough times. CB cries over the letter, as it meant so much to his friend, dog, and himself. The letter is signed 'CS'.
Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence and sexual relations, rebellion, and sexual identity are among the issues covered in this drama.

Genre: Alternative Country Rock
The six musicians of Truth & Salvage Co. boast four lead singer/songwriters, each with a unique story to tell and voice to be heard. Together, they rise up from one common seed, and something bigger is made.
Originally hailing from Atlanta, New Orleans, Indianapolis, Tupelo and various cities throughout Ohio, each member has roots in a different past. It’s from these diverse origins that acCompany of brothers has formed, ultimately connected by the shared bond we now know as Truth & Salvage. The result is genuine American Rock 'N' Roll with a timeless sound and interwoven lyrical storytelling.
Prior to the conception of Truth & Salvage Co., the members had been involved in their own side projects that include bands like Scrappy Hamilton and Old Pike. In addition, they have all performed and collaborated with many other well-known and talented acts such as The Moldy Peaches, Ben Folds Five, Jack Johnson, and The Squirrel Nut Zippers; as well as members of My Morning Jacket and Rogue Wave.
A staggered exodus in 2005 brought all six musicians to Los Angeles, where they met at Hollywood’s famous Hotel Café where vocalist/guitarist Tim Jones served as the venue’s talent booker. First performing together during casual late night jam sessions, they quickly discovered their chemistry was undeniable. It was on that very stage that Truth & Salvage Co. was born.
The different paths that led each of them to this point engendered a remarkable range of sounds and styles. Their palette stretches from rock to country to alternative. The 12 songs on this self-titled debut provide us with a perfect balance of four-part harmonies and precise instrumentals, combining their own playful wit with thoughtful and enduring themes.
"From not having a clue of what will happen tomorrow, and not being concerned with that in the slightest," says singer Scott Kinnebrew, the band agrees that the album pulls inspiration from every last aspect of their past sixteen years of trying to “live the dream."
It was, in fact, "the sincerity of their song writing and passionate performance" that attracted The Black Crowes’ frontman Chris Robinson to produce their debut album. With Robinson, the members of Truth & Salvage Co. were pushed out of their comfort zone, transforming great songs into pure brilliance. "The man [Robinson] has got a story for every occasion and can spin some incredible yarn," says Kinnebrew. Much like Robinson, this band is full of storytelling that is inextricably linked to the music.
