"Dream" is currently in radio rotation throughout the United Kingdom and is spreading throughout Europe, gaining steady spins in France, Spain, Italy and Germany amid significant European press coverage in the Sunday Times Magazine, Hello and the Daily Mail, among others.

On June 9th, she played the prestigious Isle of Wight Festival.
The Love Kills Theory is an artistic attempt to bring contemporary philosophy into the mainstream where it can be accessible and relevant. The group is fronted by Cevin Soling, who is also known as the Messiah of Tanna and currently studying philosophy for his Masters degree at Harvard University. the love kills theory is based on an amalgam of the works of Guy Debord, founder of Situationist International, Aldous Huxley, and others, fused with the current bio-genetic studies on the evolution of despair.
Swamp Cabbage is electric American roots music. Swamp Cabbage is always original even when they're payin' tribute. Swamp Cabbage is North Florida fatback boogaloo blues from three white guys brave enough to play The Theme From Shaft without strings and chick singers. You dance and then you laugh because they pull it off. Fronted by Walter Parks who has been playing since 2001 with Richie Havens, the man who made rock history by opening the 1969 Woodstock Festival, Swamp Cabbage has been in the studio recording their upcomign full-length album to be released later this year.
