Longshot

1) Born in ’79 on Chicago’s south side and inspired by artists like Tupac, Al Green, Redman, and Jim Morrison, Chad Heslup, a.k.a. LongShot, first published “Scream of the Butterfly,” a book of poetry, in ’99 followed by a 12" with DJ Anomaly entitled “Happiness is Hard to Find” in ’02. These releases paved the way for his debut album “Open Mouths Fed” and vinyl 12" single "Pretty Brown Skin" in '03. His sophmore album "Sacrifice" came out on Molemen Records in '04, along with his third single "Never Go Slow." His motivation and drive to succeed as an artist defy the name "LongShot."

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday is Kyle Thomas (aka King Tuff), Chris Weisman, and Ruth Garbus. They formed in November 2008 to play one show at the punk-space “Tinderbox” RIP), in their hometown Brattleboro, Vermont. Kyle needed a band to play his new pop songs because he was too scared to play by himself. They enjoyed playing with each other so much that they decided to keep doing it. Kyle sings and plays lead guitar. The songs are mostly his, but the band arranges and finishes them together. He is also a painter and drawer and loves top 40, shoes, texting, comic books, etc.

The quintet -- Ted Poley (vocals), Andy Timmons (guitar), Bruno Ravel (bass), Steve West (drums), and Kasey Smith (keyboards) Landed a deal with Epic in 1989.

Northcape's latest album is Captured From Static, released by Sun Sea Sky Productions on April 6th 2010. The aim is to express ideas and evoke environments, landscapes and memory rather than to focus on the technology and techniques used.
