Jazz-Blues-Rhythm-Soul-Swag-Passion and the love of music. If we really wanted to summarize what the Petra Nouvelle Jazz Band represents this would be it.

Vyne. Collective

In early 2017 a songwriting partnership occurred, Vyne. Collective was born with the first single and first song being written 'All For You'. Pulling inspiration from their influences and life that revolves around them Vyne. Collective create an eclectic style that grows due to the the wide range of influence and rotation of members. Currently the project is sitting in between Jeff Buckley esque melodies and a bluesy growl in the instrumentation. Like water, the project will take shape of its surroundings.

OddBox Eric

New Blood in an Old Body.

OddBox Eric plays old school blues on his 3 string cigar box guitar.

From the upbeat tempo of songs like “Rollin & Tumblin” through to the quieter blues sounds of “It Hurts Me Too” Eric and his three string cigar box guitars takes you on a journey through some old school blues in a unique and very cool range of music. Sometimes it’s a soft and smooth “Down Home” blues and then it leaps to harsher, harder hitting, foot stomping Chicago style blues.
