Posted in concert, festival, live looping, music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 20, 2015 by Citadel

“Loopfests are today’s definitive non-genre-based celebration of creative sonic expression – and I am very honored to be included somewhere between the loop-newbies and the pioneers of loop-history…”   Rejyna

This Looptober has been packed with festivals up and down the western edge of the USA. From Colorado and Nevada to Washington and Oregon, live looping artists have presented their personal brand of loop-based music.

This week and coming weekend, California hosts the 15th Y2K International Live Looping Festival, and the following Wednesday and Thursday, Long Beach hosts the SoCal Loopfest.

Rejyna will perform her set as part of the Y2K International Live Looping Festival on Sunday, October 25 at 3:00 p.m. at the TANNERY WORLD DANCE & CULTURAL CENTER, 1060 River Street #111, Santa Cruz, CA, 95060.

Rejyna will kick off the 2nd night of the SoCal Loopfest on Thursday October 29th at 7:00 p.m. at DiPIAZZA’S, 5205 E Pacific Coast Hwy, Long Beach, CA 90804.

Rejyna’s rig includes 5 sync’d DigiTech JamMan Solo XT’s loopers, a DigiTech Vocalist Live Pro, a Boss GT3, a Roland GR-20, a Yamaha DD55 and her Godin Spectrum midi synth guitar.  You can see her rig in action on her YouTube videos: Rejyna’s Looper Rig Videos

‘IDIO’ features rock, folk, metal, prog and world styles with adventurous guitars, emotional vocals, tasty drums and percussion, and lyrics of reflection – spiced with social topics and sprinkled with hope!

The music of IDIO was spontaneously recorded on a single DigiTech JamMan Solo.  Nothing was written in advance, and yet, after creative stitching in SoundForge and with the addition of Rejyna’s voice and lyrics, the result is cohesive and directional – even if no two songs sound like they’re from the same genre!

IDIO is available on CD and Download at CDBaby, Amazon, eMusic, iTunes, 7Digital, Tradebit, Google Play – and the list goes on…

Your support of indie music is the only thing that keeps it alive, buy IDIO at these sites:

IDIO on Google Play

For the budget minded, Rejyna is also offering IDIO on Bandcamp for a limited time at $5 for all 16 songs:

Citadel’s Rejyna Returns To Treasures Roadhouse!

Saturday, December 21st
Doors Open at 6:30, Show Starts at 7pm
TREASURES ROADHOUSE, 2908 Freedom Blvd., Watsonville, CA

REJYNA:
Returning to Treasures following a well-received set at the Y2K13 Live Looping Fest in October, Rejyna will perform solo using innovative technology for a full band sound – NO pre-recorded samples or backing tracks. 

Singing, playing acoustic and midi (synth) guitar and electronic drums; she uses loopers, effects and harmonizers to evoke lush, layered compositions built in layers in front of the live audience. Her exploration of rock, prog, folk, metal and world genres often merge these styles into thematic ‘sonic cinema’ song forms. 

Rejyna sprinkles elaborate vocal harmonies into her lyrics about following our dreams, hyper-awareness, self-reflection and hope as a choice.

IAN BELL
Ian Bell was born in 1968 in Hillingdon, West London. A self taught musician, he received his first guitar at ten, and he said it took him until twenty to get it back in tune. Inspired by the singer/songwriter tradition including Tom Waits and early Bob Dylan, he left the U.K for the U.S. in 2002. Recognized for his raw honesty and powerful acoustic performances, Bell is of the philosophy “if it sounds right, it is right.” 

His debut EP, Chameleon Skin, features a selection of five compositions written over a period of about a year. The title track, Chameleon Skin touches on the double edged sword of connection and conformity. Our uniquely human ability to reinvent ourselves to experience a sense of belonging even at the cost of our own individuality.
