Over the last few years Mars Today has made a name for himself as a producer, writer, and artist. He has seen support from some of the most progressive digital collectives in the world, releasing music through Soulection, Film Noir, Flow-Fi, And Fete. With premieres on such sites as Okayplayer, Boiler Room, Ear Milk, & Majestic Casual, his music has been spread across the globe to great response. His new EP “Bits & Pieces” is his first real collection of songs as a vocalist. Mars says the goal of this project was to start and finish it in a period of 6 months, so none of the art went stale in the process.. "I tend to be a perfectionist, and often spend years working on something only to trash it if it's not living up to it's sonic potential. For this project I forced myself to commit to artistic decisions instead of second guessing them, and am incredibly proud of the result".

Sometimes blessings come disguised as roadblocks. Such is the case of More Music More Fami- ly, the new release from soulful singer-songwriter Cas Haley. The Texas-based artist was suc- cessfully recording, touring and building a fanbase when he was sidelined by an accident that hampered his ability to sing. The idea for More Music More Family came about during treatment, as Haley reflected on how to pursue his career in a way the included his family and better repre- sented his lifestyle. Crowdfunded through a Pledge Music campaign and recorded over a month at Steelgrass Farm in Kauai, Hawaii, More Music More Family was co-produced and co-written by Andrew Terrett, aka Tubby Love. Its tracks address the universality of life lessons with positivity and uplifting melodies. The album borrows the best of Haley’s previous efforts, drawing on influences of reg- gae, soul, blues and rock. It captures an organic, live-record feeling with high-quality sound. Featured artists on the album include Trevor Hall, Mike Love, Freewill (Luminaries) and Drew Misik (New Reb). Learn more at cashaley.com
