It was going to be a no thrills show with friends … but my friend Elizabeth S. called Derek from Owl Paws to come play. Suddenly the show had a bit of spice.
About Owl Paws
Hailing from the foggy city of San Francisco, Owl Paws, brain child of Derek Schultz, began as a solo recording project in 2010. Soon thereafter, an ensemble formed featuring Timothy Vickers and Lucas Siobal. Complete with dreamy song-scapes, acoustic sonority, haunting harmony, lyrical honesty and a dynamic rhythm section, the band has created a sound that is distinctive and captivating – a uniqueness that rests in their cross-genre experimentation and a willingness to push musical boundaries. Unafraid to explore new frontiers in live music, they’ve performed on public transit, in caves, in clubs and in living rooms all over the West Coast. Their fourth official release will be available in fall, 2014.
Music is alive but the industry is dying. Current trends in the music industry are making it impossible for bands to survive and a less desirable market for designers to enter. This recession is creating an opportunity to be at the forefront of a major change in the music scene. My goal is to shift the music industry to favor independent musicians and put more control and money back in their hands. I hope to shine some light on the positive changes happening in the industry and develop solutions for some of the existing problems.
