Greg Laswell

Greg Laswell's Take a Bow both closes and opens another chapter in the California native's life as a songwriter and a man, with songs of loss and hope recorded in a cabin in Arizona. It's an album that shows a deep understanding of where he's been personally and unlike a lot of songwriters, he's also able to poke a little fun at himself. Laying himself on the line and taking chances both musically and lyrically, it's a collection that deserves attention and wide recognition. Also appearing: Austin Hartley Leonard

Diego Garcia

Diego Garcia is the former frontman of acclaimed garage-rock band Elefant. Born in Detroit to Argentine parents, Garcia explores his Latin roots on his new solo album with a sound that conjures the spirit of 1970s troubadours like Sandro, Jobim, and Leonardo Favio. It is the fusion of these Latin influences with the era's "Anglo" visionaries such as David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, and Bryan Ferry that makes this project truly special. Garcia will perform this May in support of his solo debut, set for release April 2011. Also appearing: Matt Lowell.
