Listen to Maza Blaska

Columbus’ Maza Blaska has had such nice things said of them. For instance:

“A cross-continental friendship, a kaleidoscopic fascination with the musical styles of myriad cultures and a flexible arrangement…have turned Maza Blaska into a thriving band.” –Kevin Joy, The Columbus Dispatch

…and this:

“Despite the heavy subject matter, [Maza Blaska present] bright, accessible indie-pop of the post-‘Garden State’ variety…” –Chris DeVille, Columbus Alive

Listen to Bears of Blue River

“Take a step back from the dark-lands, perk up to the love horn of the choo-choo and hop a wagon through the cornfields to a close encounter in Muncie, Indiana with The Bears of Blue River.

Across the plain, unrequited love songs sung from closets to the vivid attraction of opposites and more, accompanied by all the “not too precious” o…oh-ooh-oh’s and bah-bah-ba’s to keep listeners in the realm of the tender grazing primal prairie animal.

The Bears tango on the border of urban and bucolic so hum along with the beer, beards, long locks; smooth raspy harmonies…Jangle your heart and sing along with these Chicago transplants.”

- Jesse Jesster

They are simple folks but with one request….
