Social Potion
October 282013

Indie alt-pop music that reaches your soul. Carmen Toth on vocals, guitar, keyboard & songwriting and Aaron Jones on drums, keyboard & guitar.

Bio

Take some pleasantly catchy melodies, add heartfelt lyrics and innovative drum beats and the result is Social Potion – a Toronto indie alt-pop duo with a very full sound. Social Potion are married couple Carmen Toth on vocals, guitar and keyboard and Aaron Jones on drums, keys/controller and occasionally guitar.

Often compared to Kate Bush, Tori Amos, Jane Sibbery, Fiest and Cyndi Lauper, Social Potion are huge music fans themselves with a huge CD and vinyl collection. They are heavily influenced by Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks, classic rock, retro 70s/80s/90s and indie rock. They believe in supporting their fellow musicians, both indie and established, and they go to a lot of concerts.

Before Social Potion began performing live together in 2005, singer-songwriter Carmen Toth made her debut at Toronto’s Renaissance Café in 2002, and released her first EP album “Potional” in 2004. “Potional” would later become the name inspiration for “Social Potion”. After years of working on new songs and performing live, Social Potion released their self-titled 5-song EP album in 2011. It’s since been well received by both listeners and critics alike. Perhaps WORDKRAPHT Magazine said it best: “Most listeners will wish their album is longer. You will not be able to get enough of Toth’s voice and her relatable lyrics.” All of the EP’s singles, especially “Drive Myself Home” and “Cordelia,” are currently getting airplay on numerous online radio stations and podcasts. Social Potion is also now ranked within the national and local top 10 on ReverbNation, and the Indie Top 10 on Women of Substance Radio. They’ve also recently been the “Artist Of The Week” on HR’s InDspotlight Radio Show, which airs on several different stations, including Butterflies Radio.
Venues Social Potion has played include: Graffiti’s Bar & Grill, The Rose And Crown, NXNE Music + Film Festival 2013 (Free Times Café), Avant Garde Bar (in Ottawa, ON), The Old Nick, The Winchester, Toronto Main Street Event, The Rouge Valley Conservation Centre (various events since 2009), Dave’s on St. Clair, El Macambo, Lou Dawg’s Bar and Café and The Moore Gallery (private show). Venues Carmen Toth has played solo include: The Central, Dora Keogh, The Winchester, Grossman’s Tavern, The Black Swan, Hirut Restaurant, The Rockpile, Free Times Café, The Smiling Buddha, Rancho Relaxo, and The Guvernment (NABS Gala Fundraiser).
You can’t fake passion. That’s what makes these guys so special. With an extensive catalogue of both original and cover songs, they easily connect with audiences of all ages. Their music really IS a Social Potion. Currently, Social Potion are writing material for their next album and are playing live shows.

GSlide
September 282013

GSlide is an Indie Music band of Irish and American artists that perform eclectic rock songs that stretch a gamut of subject matter.  Recorded in Cork Ireland between 2011-2013 “Drink. Love. Rebellion.” is the second album from GSlide.  The band has been described as “genre-less” with aspects of pure-driving Rock, Bluegrass, Americana, Pop, Folk and Metal.  At the core soul the band evokes a haunting melancholy that is evident upon a single listen. The band seeks to craft music that influences the listener to ponder and transform a song into their own personal story.

GSlide is comprised of Bruce Carter (Guitars/Drums/Vocals) Dara Bradley (Vocals/Piano) Eimear Bradley (Vocals/Guitar) and David Sheehan (Bass).  American-born Bruce Carter, the chief writer and producer started playing and recording material in Cork, Ireland. Carter was formerly the guitarist in the local Philadelphia-based band Crave who released two albums, 1996’s “Faithfully Sane” and 2003’s “Everyday Its Something”.  In Cork, Carter became friends with Dara and Eimear Bradley and began crafting music with them. GSlide’s debut album “This Too Shall Pass” was released on November 13, 2010.

The album was well received and peaked onIndiecharts.com (www.indiecharts.com) at #20.  “This Too Shall Pass” highlights “Always Next Time” a sultry number with smoky vocals sprinkled over a melancholy acoustic that speaks of timeless love. “Summer Wine” is a sweet grooving rock number that beckons a convertible ride.

Between 2011 and 2012, Carter returned to Cork and began writing and recording new material.  Once again he teamed with the Bradley sisters for several songs including “Golden Monkey” and “Sweet Lunatic”. He also enlisted Cork-based Rob “Mugsy” McGrath for “Sleeping It Off”.  During this a time a number of shows were performed across Ireland to demo the new material.

In August 2012, he returned to the U.S. and began mixing the album that was now slated as “Drink. Love. Rebellion”. Much like their debut, the album is rich in diversity featuring the pub-crawl inspired “Sweet Lunatic” and the sting of a brief summer fling in “Wildberry”.  “Drink. Love. Rebellion.” was released on 9/14/2013 and is available on ITunes, CD Baby and Amazon.

In less than a week after release, “Drink. Love. Rebellion.” was garnering critical praise.Marsband.com writes: “Drink. Love. Rebellion.” is a diverse collection of intricately crafted and beautifully performed songs filled with passion and emotion.  A perfectly executed album …“Drink. Love. Rebellion.” is a must-hear collection.”  Mellow Projects goes on to write: “this album is a wonderful combination of consistently good songwriting, intriguing vocal ideas, and instrumental ability.” The full reviews can be found at:

Ian Gosbee

Ian Gosbee

Pop, Country Folk Rock

August 242013

Singer, songwriter & musician Ian Alistair Gosbee may be an indie act, but he is proof in the pudding that formidable artistry doesn’t require major label backing to earn due notice. The title track from his third full-length collection “Life Gets In the Way” earned top 10 props on several Canadian charts, airplay on regional radio and amped up an already fervent North American and U.K. fan following. Ian was chosen to represent Mainstreet Nova Scotia in CBC Radio’s Searchlight competition and was featured on the popular website ReverbNation.com.

In this age of digital downloads, today’s independent artists have to work harder then ever, continually reinventing themselves to stand out from the crowd. Ian Gosbee is an ever evolving musician. From his early training in classical violin, to playing packed clubs in cover, and well known tribute bands, Ian has not been one to shy away from any opportunity to do what he loves.

With his powerful, sincere vocals and uncanny ability to play almost any instrument, Ian is in a class all his own. In the summer of 2011, he released his first full length solo project, aptly named ‘Music’. Inspired by folk rock and country, this album is meaningful, memorable, and light hearted, everything music should be.

Gosbee’s second album entitled ‘Invisible’ (which was release just 5 months later), shows his true diversity as an artist. With influences ranging from indie rock, to reggae, ‘Invisible’ is a culmination of classic song writing, and modern sound engineering.

Back in the studio once again, Ian’s third installment called ‘Life Gets In The Way’, was released 12/12/12. Releasing 3 albums in the span of 1 year!

Ian will continue to expand his repertoire; entertaining, and amazing audiences for years to come.
