Once upon a time, two brothers met a man named Mantis Evar. These brothers thought this man was so interesting that they decided to write a song about him. Now it can be remixed on Indaba Music.

Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons - Suite 268

In March 2012, we invited Cory Chisel and The Wandering Sons to perform at the Indaba Music Showcase as a part of SXSW (South by Southwest). The Wisconsin folk rock band performed an electrifying live version of their original song, “Over Jordan” at the Bandpage HQ.

Tristan Prettyman - Suite 268

Tristan Prettyman has all it takes to be a great artist: talent, commitment, love, and a story to tell. After releasing two albums and touring extensively, Prettyman took an extended break during which she traveled the globe, had surgery to remove polyps on her vocal cords, got engaged to her long-term boyfriend, dealt with the pain of his ending the engagement, and eventually questioned whether she even wanted to be a musician at all. We’re glad that in the end she did want to! Indada Music had the honor of having her for an exclusive interview and performance for Suite 268 in September 2012.

Halloween is coming…

Terror fills October skies, while spirits from the dead arise, and through the thick of night we hear, a distant sound is growing near.

The tune you dreamt while fast asleep, is calling to you from the deep, to come while eeriness is rife, and bring this spooky song to life.

Submit your best Halloween track to win!
