Practice in Public Makes Perfect: how playing for your fans makes you better

Price, 57, has played music nearly her whole life, starting with piano when she was five years old. But in the fall of 2009, the guitar was still something of mystery to her. She had been playing for only a couple of months and was struggling a bit with the new challenges. Yet, instead of […]

THE LIGHT AND MUSIC EXPOSITION HITS LOS ANGELES IN THE FASHION WEEK

Going Coastal

2:00pmSunday

2:00pmSunday

Anna’s Anchor is the Alternative Rock project of Marty Ryan from Limerick. Taking strong influences from bands such as Into It Over it, Brand New and City & Colour, Anna’s Anchor is a clash of heart felt lyrics laced with delayed guitars and soft acoustic undertones. His latest album A Glorious Ruction tells a story of self-doubt and uncertainty set upon the banks of the River Shannon, the course of which splits Limerick City in two. The album is an interactive art piece in which each song is timed to a specific walk around the city centre, using the landscape and landmarks of the river as an aural canvas. Tracklist Ganglions – Slow Lunch Windings – Ambivalence Blues Anna’s Anchor – Oldest Part of Town Tycho – Jetty Chewie – Singing from the Septic Tank Dylan Flynn & The Dead Poets – Mellow Green Self Defense Family – Have You Considered Punk Volcano Choir – Dancepak Joshua Burnside – Tunnels Pt.2 Cast of Cheers – Pose Mit
