With a deceptively simple sound of an old country or blues record, his sound is at once raw and vulnerable, but distilled through a caustic brilliant prism of sound. Connors freshly weaves a view of emotion and experience; lyrical branches wound densely in and out of darkness and diffused light. His own raw and vulnerable sound journey can do any listener a great service. And if you've ever feel the limb snap, it may just be his dry wit.


From his teen years, drifting the fringes of various NYU independent music festivals and on to places such as CBGB's, Greg's path led him to Atlanta, Georgia, creating deliberate vibrations at such local favorites as the 40 Watt Club, in Athens, and the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, and then back to NYC again, with various stops along the way


Greg is making music currently in metro NYC. He has awakened audiences for the likes of John Mayer, Joseph Arthur, Cat Power, Smoke, Songs; Ohia, Palace Brothers, Joan as Police Woman and Vic Chesnutt.


In 2006 Scared Records released Greg's 5th Studio album,
"Here, There and Anymore", Produced by friend and studio wizard, Joseph Arthur.


Recorded with Bass player and recording engineer, Scott Fragala, Connors' 9th studio album, "Home Made Compass" will be available on March, 3rd 2018.


'Greg Connors’ trademark simple guitar licks and detached alienated, lonely voice are coupled with a scary command of the English language. He is the Howard Finster of music, painting vivid abstract images with his words and guitar.”

The eclectic life and times of Pittsburgh's hardest working musician, John Vento
Do your part to keep guitar driven rock ALIVE... join Loudini LIVE! Go to http://LouLombardiMusic.com/InnerCircle to find out how you can be a part of our LIVE online audience and get access to exclusive music and video!John Vento is often called a chameleon in the Pittsburgh music scene; and, while his critics may use the term as a pejorative, Vento views it as a compliment. He understands that they’re motivated by the frustration of their inability to lock him into a specific musical style. After all, the front man for the high-energy, hard-rockin’ bands, The Businessmen, and the Nied’s Hotel Band, is also known for his introspective, brooding solo recordings.Rather than a drawback, however, Vento considers such diversity to be among his strengths; and his fans agree. They relish sharing his tumultuous trek toward achieving his artistic vision, which he accomplishes by channeling a blend of eclectic influences through his own, raw emotions.Helping to engineer the roller coaster ride is a stout core of colaborators, including John Randall Fox, Buddy Hall, Tim Hadley, and Frank Ferraro, along with renowned playwright/lyricist, Amy Hartman. Many members of this crew have been with him for more than a decade; and it’s easy to understand why, as Vento consistently showers them with appreciation and accolades. Though a one-of-a-kind performer, he professes a great distaste for the word, “solo,” insisting that, “Without my collaborators, I would not have accomplished anything.”That’s no surprise to those who know him, as he truly is a humble, loving, and grateful person, who treasures his family and friends. Certainly, that comes across, loud and clear, in his honest, from-the-heart songs; and that, undoubtedly, is another quality which endears him to his fans. As he puts it, “If just one person is touched in some small way by one of my songs, that’s the greatest reward that I could receive.”Of course, it’s purely logical that Vento would find a great following in this town. His steely resistance to categorization is the very essence and backbone of Pittsburgh. Built by a veritable melting pot of blue-collar workers, the once-gritty city has risen from the slag heap, through the smoke and haze, to become a sparkling, spectacular hub of culture and learning. Yet, it remains true to its deeply-forged identity.John’s 2019 MTS release is “Love, Lust and Other Wreckage.” His single, “Rainbows And Lightning” reached the Top 20 on iTunes Canada charts, receiving national and international airplay and charting. John is a January 2019 Billboard Magazine Emerging Artist.PRESS KIT: https://drive.google.com/open?id=10iOvRzKfk54bCkbs6FSIGkhI8zcEum8Hwww.johnvento.comhttps://www.facebook.com/johnventomusichttps://twitter.com/JventoMhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y65K1Hu2uik

Go to http://LouLombardiMusic.com/InnerCircle to find out how you can be a part of our LIVE online audience and get access to exclusive music and video!Expanding on their love of American R&B, The Resolectrics are a rock & soulpower trio exploring the vast landscapes of roots music with layered harmonies,multi-tonal guitar tracks, and ambitious arrangements. Since releasing their“Booker T. meets The Band” debut record, High Water, guitarist Tate Peterson,drummer John Becher, and bassist Bob Dunham have honed a leaner, meanerapproach through continuous gigging and constant refinement. The band’s newrecord, Open Seas (released Sep 21, 2018), adds some timeless, British Invasion-style psychedelia to the mix along with a touch of horns and harmonica that helpreconnect the music to its soul-based heritage. It’s a bigger sound that’s radio-ready and set for bigger stages and a larger audience.Links:Facebook: http://facebook.com/resolectricsTwitter: https://twitter.com/resolectricsWebsite: http://resolectrics.comSoundcloud: http://soundcloud.com/resolectricsYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCufGrIkACIfv-VCVWH-H0gBandcamp: http://resolectrics.bandcamp.comiTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/the-resolectrics/1434962773CDBaby: n/aAmazon:Other: spotify:https://open.spotify.com/artist/58YdbtxD9oTKpu6Sp4LZWa?si=fA25hjYvTJCdIDcDUjeGVA

Brady Novotny mixes his passions for shred and flameco on his latest release
Do your part to keep guitar driven rock ALIVE... join Loudini LIVE! Go to http://LouLombardiMusic.com/InnerCircle to find out how you can be a part of our LIVE online audience and get access to exclusive music and video!Brady Novotny started playing the guitar at the age of 10. Determined to be a world class guitarist, he left his first guitar lesson with his instructor telling him basically to give it up now. Thus he was introduced to criticism and disappointment early in his endeavor. Nevertheless, Brady heard a guitar player that would motivate him to push all that aside and re-energrize his passion to continue; that guitar player was Randy Rhoads. Brady soon fell in love with classical and melodic guitar playing. Brady practiced restlessly learning everything from classical pieces, melodic and virtuosic solos from 80's guitar heroes, to jazz fusion.Brady loved the guitar, and truly, that has been his passion. He attended Berklee College of Music for a little time. At the age of 19, he was asked to teach summer guitar workshop at Duquesne University. As life often happens, however, Brady got burned out and went back to school and received his masters in Psychology. Yep, that's right -- Psychology. But the passion is back and stronger than ever, plus it never hurts to have some money!Brady set out to do an instrumental project that would have his listeners singing the haunting melodies while holding their attention by uniquely placed guitar virtuosity and dynamic rhythms creating a fusion of rock, flamenco, and jazz. His love for a variety of musical styles led him to study under many teachers in his life. Brady started out playing Classical guitar at the age of 10. Ever since then, Brady has had a strong affection for nylon string guitar sound. Ultimately, this led him to study Flamenco guitar. He immediately fell in love with the passion, virtuosity and rhythm of this style. The shred of the 80’s was one of his main influences and guilty pleasures, while Jazz was a big influence on Brady’s chordal choices and song color.Brady has a wide range of experience in the music business. His experience ranges from the Pittsburgh rock scene to national tours. He has worked as a Pittsburgh session guitarist, Worship leader, and guitarist at several mega churches. He has also taught guitar at clinics and universities.His 2019 release with MTS Management Group/MTS Records is “Passions Collide” featuring the lead single, “Redemption’s Cry.” The song, featuring a hauntingly beautiful vocal from Brady’s wife, Jennifer, is currently charting on the Airplay Today national radio charts.Links:www.bradynovotny.comwww.facebook.com/bradynovotnymusicwww.instagram.com/bradynovotnyofficalwww.twitter.com/bradyanovotnyhttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQMG6bjBHNLH2uxumRx1IyQPRESS KIT: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1S6Ig54_MTtD-dwjrOIixGWCM_hpd9_Zt 
Bill Abernathy: "It all starts with a story."
Do your part to keep guitar driven rock ALIVE... join Loudini LIVE! Go to http://LouLombardiMusic.com/InnerCircle to find out how you can be a part of our LIVE online audience and get access to exclusive music and video!Everyone loves a good story about second-chances, and that’s exactly what Bill Abernathy’s story is all about. The Kansas City, Missouri resident began writing songs in his early teens. He played all through his school years, but then he stopped...Life took over.Bill went about getting married, building a business career, and raising his children. After his kids graduated from school and started their careers, Bill picked up the guitar again and began trying to rekindle his love of music.“Inspiration for my music comes from a variety of the many parts of my life,” Bill says. “Events and experiences of mine, my family, my friends, and sometimes even people I have never met all, contribute to the creativity of my music. I find it interesting and rewarding to let my imagination wander through the memory and spirit of life events and see where it takes me.”Bill is a pure "lyrics-first" writer...a bit of a storyteller. “I feel the story and lyrics talk to me and tell me what the rest of the song is supposed to sound like,” he says.His last album, 2017’s “Find A Way” reached #5 on the Roots Music Report Traditional Folk Album chart, and the single, “Goodbye Will Never Come Again” reached #1 on the singles chart.Bill’s latest collection of songs, “Crossing Willow Creek” is available now, with first single, “Cry Wolf” hitting radio airwaves around the globe. The single reached the iTunes Top 100 Rock Songs chart, while hitting the Top 5 on New Music Weekly’s country chart. Bill is also a December 2018 Billboard Magazine Emerging Artist.“Sometimes life is good to you and gives you a second chance. In my youth I walked away from music for a myriad of personal reasons. Now, I've now been given a second chance to pursue this thing we love called music, and I am really enjoying the ride!”Links:PRESS KIT: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1vfana_wKW6xcnz6hm1mrlaJ1Xg-xeIS1https://www.billabernathy.com/crossing-willow-creekhttps://www.facebook.com/billabernathymusic/https://twitter.com/bill_abernathy
