Vatican Vamps
Vatican Vamps
Based on the resume of musical artist Nat Lort-Nelson (The Bunny Gang, Richard Smallwood) a multi-instrumentalist and prolific song-writer, you’d expect a rambunctious sound of Punk, Reggae and Gospel in his solo career. Yet his new endeavor as Vatican Vamps will reflect slight glimmers of these past influences and surprise you in ways you would least expect.

Nat plays a hybrid of alternative rock that includes all the energy and spirit of the orthodox. Do not be in a slump of nay-saying however, the spirit of the music does not condone a depressive state. Rather, Vatican Vamps beautifully gives the listener a music portrayal of hardship in the arial trance of guitars and with the sound of triumph over evil in the hard hitting rhythmic grooves of each song. Nat is joined on stage with Genevieve Binder, keys and vocals, Tim Gaskins, drums and vocals, Tim Miller, bass and vocals, and Tina Rea, synth, guitar, percussion and vocals.

Kramies
Kramies (pronounced Kraim-iss) is an American singer-songwriter and recording artist based in Colorado, USA. Kramies' style is haunting and romantic, with an aura of dreams and fairy tales, striking a balance between whimsy and melancholia. His unique vocal style has been described as eerie and soothing. In 2011 Kramies signed with Australia's Hidden Shoal Recordings and released to much critical acclaim The European EP. In 2013 Kramies teamed up with Jason Lytle of Grandaddy and Todd Tobias to record his much anticipated new EP "The Wooden Heart" on Hidden Shoal Recordings. "The Wooden Heart" was voted the #1 Fan Favorite Album/EP of 2013. Kramies also has older albums and EP's other various labels(see discography below), co-produced by Todd Tobias (Robert Pollard, Guided by Voices).[1] In 2014 with the success of "The Wooden Heart", Kramies decided to go back into the studio and re-record a few of his past songs just the way he wrote them, cut back, live and on acoustic. He teamed up with Grant Wilson from the Syfy hit TV show Ghost Hunters. Grant, a brilliant music composer, wrote and recorded piano on a few of the tracks. On May 22, 2014 this small collection of acoustic songs was released as a free EP titled The Folklore Sessions and has received much acclaim and notice in the press. The Wooden Heart has gone on to received many awards including EP of the Year, Song of the Year, BBC top 10, as well as others. In 2015 after many glowing international reviews, interviews and mentions Kramies teamed up once again with producer Jason Lytle of Grandaddy to release The Fate That Never Favored Us. The single has received much attention and was named "Song Of The Day" by French music magazine Les Inrockuptibles. In the Spring of 2015 Kramies left the States for a small tour in France. There he played a sold out show at the famous Le Grand Théâtre in Angers,France which lead to the release of his "forêts antiques" live EP in October 2015. Kramies's live EP "forêts antiques" was listed as Top Albums of 2015 by Paris magazine Pop Cultures & Co. After three successful years of releasing albums, reviews, interviews and small bits of touring, in a recent interview at the end of 2015 Kramies mentioned that he was going to use 2016 to focus on writing and recording his new album.
