Who is Grace Wegener? Grace is a graduate of Indiana University with a major in psychology and not one, but two minors. One of her miners is in Spanish and the other is in music. With all that work under her belt she has decided to take the musical route for fun and she is working at the bottom to get to the top.
Currently, this 22 year old from Wilmette, Illinois is living in Bloomington, Indiana. Grace is interning at Secretly Canadian, Jagjaguwar, and Dead Oceans, three rock labels unified under the SC Distribution company. These three labels nhave fantastic bands like, The War on Drugs, Bear in Heaven and the famous Bon Iver. It leaves Grace with a lot of great artist to look up to.
Grace loves playing her guitar, writing new songs, and preforming has become one of her passions. Her slow paced acoustic songs work side by side with her silvery voice to create a lovely delight for your ears. Grace’s musical accomplishments will begin to pile up and we hope to hear more originals from her as time goes on.

Christopher Jones is an up and coming Miami rapper. He has just finished his third full album called, “The Imaginarium of Christopher Jones” where we hear the animistic side of Christopher Jones.
It’s not uncommon for Christopher Jones to be busy working on a production project but “The Imaginarium of Christopher Jones” was fully produced by Christopher Jones. All 10 beast beats were hand crafted by Christopher Jones himself . He is known for making spacey beats like in his song “Wi-Fi Girl” but has developed them into a darker pop melody which carries you through the song, like in “Money (Gotta get It)“. It’s hard to find good rappers who dedicate themselves to more then just the lyrics because other producers are already providing beats for a small fee. Christopher Jones does not seem to afraid of being a one man band and all the hard work that comes with it.
Always an amazing writer and you can compare lyrics The Imaginarium to Full Circle. The lyrics that are thrown down are personal and you can really feel the struggle of a young man in every word. Christopher Jones tell it like it is, he has his own style of rap that flows with his beats and tells his story of growing up young and drug free in Miami, FL lost in his imagination. His singing can use some work but Drake can’t sing and he is still making millions.
Upon all of album work, Christopher Jones also directs and edit’s his own music video’s. His most recent one being “Bigfoot” about the hidden Bigfoot in the hunting party. Christopher Jones is so talented at creating videos he decided to make a trip out to D.C. and shoot a video for MerCure Dior Ft. A$AP Ant called” Gush“which just hit over 32,000 views! But you wouldn’t expect any less from a young man with a BS in Film.
I pay much respect to Christopher Jones’s new album. He has worked on his craft since middle school and you can hear and see how all of his hard work has payed off for him. Be sure to check out his work and follow him till the very end!

Last Thursday on the Tlo and Batista Show I was able to plug Interskramz Records and play one of their newest artist “The Concrete Summer”. They are a DIY tape label based out of Michican that play all times of music from mostly screamo but also have a few solo artist on the label. I got in touch with Interskramz through my friend Jessica who just moved in with two members Interskramz Records and found herself a book keeping job with the label. You can purchase any bands tapes for low prices or download their music for a nameable price over a dollar. Also, check out their facebook at Interskramz ON Facebook.
