Sometimes you go to a show and you can tell that the band playing is having a good time. Clay Summers goes beyond that. You can tell that he loves to be up on stage and he wants to play music for you.

Brent currently hails from Salt Lake City, though Linescratchers first came into contact with him through Rexburg connections, where he spent some time at BYU-I. You will soon be able to purchase his upcoming album, Object Permanence, on iTunes, though in the meantime you can hear his songs at his Myspace or on The Hills.

For those of you who are interested in seeing Nick and Shane Barnwell perform, well, you might have to wait a bit. Nick will be in Chile till October 2010, serving a mission.

When you hear your first tracks of Sunshine Brady and the Moonlight Lady, you will be struck by its classic uniqueness, and yet it has a familiar ring, like the telephone at your grandmother’s house, or the crackle of a vinyl record. Most of all, these kids will make you smile. I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Ryan and Becca about their music. They haven’t quite made an internet presence but they have a facebook group and you can find them on SellABand.com.
