Sheverb is heading to Bombay Beach, California to write and record an album while residing in this remote desert locale for the month of February. Five members of this womxn-led, collectively run, a psychedelic desert rock band from Austin, TX will participate in this experiment while living together and performing throughout the greater Salton Sea area. At the end of the month, Sheverb plans to have a full-length album of new, original material that combines the Southern California 1950’s surf rock sound with distinctly Texan and psych-rock flavors.
On their last tour, Sheverb stumbled into Bombay Beach, a surreal place with a fascinating history. Developed in the 1950s on the (accidentally) man-made Salton Sea, this once-thriving resort town has been largely abandoned by the 1970s. They fell in love with the psychedelic, retro, post-apocalyptic vibes of this land and promised to return. On January 31, their journey back begins.

Born on a high desert wind, Sheverb is a womxn-led, collectively run, a psychedelic desert rock band based in Austin, TX. Armed with their instruments, the Ladies of Reverb are out to challenge our understanding of the romanticized Wild West with their peyote-fueled, surf-infused sound. In the past year, Sheverb crowdfunded a vinyl EP, signed to PeacockSunrise Records, completed two successful tours of the Southwest, and created a “smoldering sound [that] matches Texas heat in a big way” (The Austinot).
UK PSYCH-ROOTS FOLK POP ARTIST ELFIN BOW TO RELEASE HER 3-TRACK EP ‘RAINBOWS & GALLOWS
Artist: Elfin Bow Date of Release: 1st December 2019 (Digital Release) Release Title: Rainbows & Gallows Digital Details: Available as a digital bundle with artwork, booklet, and posters. Available from www.elfinbow.com
Rainbows & GallowsTrack Listing: 1. Take Me Out in Your Old Bread Van 2. Miles Away 3. Mother Said
Watch Take Me Out in Your Old Bread Van now!
About: For her first release with PSR, Elfin Bow (Elizabeth Anne Jones) is unapologetically celebrating the strange bedfellows that are Joy and Tragedy, with three original songs that tell of great love, and the cracks that both promise, and threaten, to break that love wide open.
Take Me Out in Your Old Bread Van (Time) With an accompanying video, reminiscent of full technicolor, DIY 1970’s children’s TV shows, Elfin Bow joyfully reminisces about the days when her parents used to date in an old bread van, dreaming of a large family and a rosy future. A timely launch to mark her parent’s 50th wedding anniversary, this up-beat, banjo-driven song is sure to bring a wide smile with every listen.
Miles Away (Time) That moment when you are right next to someone but may as well be a million miles away. Elfin Bow’s desolate piano and haunting harmonies wash wave after wave of tragical lyrics over a waltz that threatens to break your heart, unless…
Mother Said (Time) Described as ‘lyrically astute’ by Shindig Magazine, wordsmith Elfin Bow, takes us on a journey from the knowing look of a newborn to the aging lines of life, long-lived, in this tale of a mother’s deep intuitive wisdom gifted to her daughter.
Recorded at The Music Mine Studios by Peter Footitt, with production mix and mastering by Gary Lloyd, this release was produced by Gary Edward Jones and Elfin Bow. Featuring on the EP are Daniel J. Logan (percussion), Jon Fellowes (bass), Tom Kitching (fiddle, mandolin), Terry Clarke-Coyne (flute, vocals), Tracey Green (vocals) and Elfin Bow (guitar, piano, banjo, and vocals.)

“Elfin Bow has been making waves within the modern folk scene over the last year and is now releasing her debut three-track EP for PeacockSunrise Records. With songs showing her diverse musical style and wonderful storytelling ability. Her songs are wonderfully inclusive, dynamic, folky, poptastic and basically a load of fun. Just hearing her music always makes me smile, makes me feel warm inside, and somehow always makes me feel loved. No-one else exists, Elfin Bow is talking just to me, telling her stories in her own intimate way, making for a very special listening experience indeed.” Kev Rowland, music reviewer and author of The Progressive Underground.
It is with great pleasure that PeacockSunrise Records (PSR) can finally announce the addition of UK Psych-roots folk pop artist Elfin Bow to its family of musicians. Elfin Bow truly is unique and offers up something very special both musically and artisticlly. We look forward to introducing this talented artist to an audience that embraces quality music drawn from the heart, music that inspires and gives us hope, music that just makes us feel good. Nick Katona President of PeacockSunrise Records
Elfin Bow’s music has been described as a fairy tale experience; pastoral psych-folk, deeply rooted in the life and nature that surrounds her. Her self-penned songs and stories weave a tapestry that combines mysterious characters, myths, and legends, with the heartache and adventure of real life. With imagery that blends her twin passions of music and art, her songs and stage presence exude color, charisma and a gentle charm.
In a statement from Elfin Bow? Peacock Sunrise Records is a label that puts the artist at the centre of everything they do, encouraging full and authentic creative expression. Joining the PSR family is a truly exciting opportunity to take my music to an international audience.
It is with great pleasure that today September 15th, 2019 we release our first recording “Nowhere Wolf” by Austin, Texas psychedelic rockers Sheverb. “Nowhere Wolf” is the b-side and the first of two tracks from their upcoming 7″ record due out September 29th, 2019.
PeacockSunrise Records (PSR) is a new chapter and an offshoot label of Melodic Revolution Records. PSR was launched on December 5, 2018; born out of the necessity to explore and release music from new territories, styles, and cultures from around the globe.
We hope that you will join us and embrace our new journey as we continue to present some of the world’s best up and coming artists. PSR has many releases in the works, including a solo album by Allison VonBuelow the voice of Scarlet Hollow; debut full-length release by bassist and composer Joe Macre (formerly of Crack the Sky): Joe Mac’s American Garage, and an exciting new outfit hailing from Port Isabel, Texas – Sun King Rising.
Please help us today as we celebrate our first release “Nowhere Wolf” by Sheverb. We hope that you enjoy this release as much as we do and that you will share this music by telling your friends, family, and co-workers.
Love and respect to all, Nick Katona

We like our homegrown bands at RoSfest. Bringing in good bands from overseas is something of a given for a progressive rock festival but finding and giving opportunities to our own bands is a vital part of being a progressive rock festival as well. To introduce the new and exciting as well as the known and established. In the case of Seattle progressive rock band Moon Letters, one might, to some extent, say that we are fulfilling both of those criteria.
Set to open on Sunday morning in our coveted Church of Prog spot, newcomers Moon Letters will show the most dedicated parts of our audience what good-quality progressive rock is all about. Taking their cues from both the melodic progressive rock bands of the 70’s and some of the more expressive English bands from the same era, and blending these impulses with contemporary and more explosive details, their brand of old and new progressive rock have caused quite a buzz to build around the band in the two years they have been active. A blazing performance at Seaprog in Seattle in 2019 caught our attention, documenting that they are a very tight live band indeed, and we join in on the international chorus that herald the amazing quality of Moon Letter’s debut album, “Until They Feel the Sun”, a production that will hit many progressive rock top 10 lists of albums released in 2019.
The Church of Prog time slot at RoSfest is reserved for bands that have the talent and potential to become big names in the world of progressive rock. Moon Letters are a worthy addition to the list of bands being given this slot and we are looking forward to seeing them as well as hearing the audience buzz following their performance.
As announced at the 2019 edition of RoSfest, Big Big Train will be making their USA debut and is the first band that has been booked for the 2020 edition of the festival. To state that this is an exciting signing for us is probably the understatement of the decade.
Big Big Train has been on our wish-list ever since the festival started way back in 2004, the same year that Big Big Train released the album “Gathering Speed”. The wish for them to come and play at RoSfest has most certainly gathered speed ever since, especially following 2009’s “The Underfall Yard”, which may be described as something of a breakthrough album for the band. Their brand of melodic and distinctly English progressive rock has made the band a must-buy for an ever-increasing audience since then, and that Big Big Train released one fantastic album after the other to this day is, of course, a part of why that is the case.
For the last decade, our audience has made it an annual tradition to request Big Big Train and 2020 is the year when we will make it happen. A long-desired wish, finally fulfilled. Big Big Train will arrive on schedule and headline on May 9th, for a 2-hour performance beginning at 8:00 pm! (Pending permit approval).
