Acoustic and electric folk rock, psychedelia, traditional Americana, country blues, and original songs

Mythic Americana: in a style comparable to that of Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter, Page Brownton's songs invoke the collective archetypes of American folk culture, and his interpretations of traditional material have the ring of authenticity. Page and the Mojo Navigators (Page Brownton, Beth Ann LaBarba, Al Astrella, Roscoe VanHorne, and John Burton) have tapped into that well-spring  of primordial music that inspired a generation of pickers and singers; as Greil Marcus said, this venerable body of mythic song "gave us contact with musicians and cultures we wouldn't have known existed," and a fascination and reverence for the songs of  "the old weird America." In his youth, Page attempted to replicate the primal sound and spirit of those old guys on the records who evoked, from the strength of their youth, the living presence and power of the American zeitgeist. Through perseverance, now that he is old and weird, he has become transformed into that which he once strove to emulate! "Growing up in the Bay Area, Page has been active in the underground music scene since the early 60's, when he often crossed paths with future icons such as Jerry Garcia, Janis Joplin and Jorma Kaukonen in their days before the Grateful Dead, Big Brother and the Holding Company, and the Jefferson Airplane. Like his compatriots, Page also later plugged in and continues to perform in a psychedelic folk/rock band format, expanding his music to louder and more cosmic levels. Page Brownton is a musical treasure chest; in any of his incarnations, he is a quality act and a vital link. He's the real deal, and the Mojo Navigators is a great band." Jim Lewin, Recording Artist."

Effortless blend of alt-Rock, Country and Americana styles

The Never HasBeens is a music trio based out of Santa Cruz California, performing an eclectic array of original and cover songs with intensity and dynamic subtly. The trio is rooted in classic American music, a rebellious dose of 80's attitude, and the musicality to blend alt-Rock, Country and Americana styles effortlessly. Their tastefulness in dong so in on full display in the band's latest full-length release, "We Will Not Be Unheard". The trio focuses on songs that have a deep cut and create an unspoken connection with their audiences. This is a band that understands the simple beauty of a country waltz, the frivolous fun of adolescent guitar driven angst, and the value of being in the moment with their audiences.

California music goes global

The Caliopians are a California band (hence the Cali in our name) steeped in the sounds of the southern desert, the coastal surf towns, Bakersfield twang, and the inner city we live in. Opians cause we have a big place in our hearts and heads for Ethiopian jazz and Afro Cuban diaspora sounds. A big slice of Klezmer and what ever else falls into our listening life. The music we write and record all sounds like us, but different aspects of our roots end up in each separate number.
