A Bay Area music / urban planning blog
Hey, I’m hoping you’ll review my bands music! In Life is a collaboration between Oakland musicians Omar Martin and local hardcore icon Nick Noro. We just released an EP, which you can find at the Spotify link below or at inlife.bandcamp.com
Our sounds blends elements of punk, shoegaze, and trap, for an energetic and schizo sound inspired by life in Oakland.
Good morning Bill!

James Coates One Last Ride Press Release/Pitch
James Coates sings about the two things he knows best: falling down and getting back up. His latest album, One Last Ride, offers ten new songs that were recorded painstakingly over five years.
The result is a deeply-personal look into the life of an artist who believes in the power of truth in music. The autobiographical lyrics are complemented by a sonic tapestry of country, folk, Americana and soul.
The instrumentation is lush, dressing the songs in the likes of reverb-soaked pedal steel, stabbing horn sections, gospel choirs and even a chamber orchestra on opening track “The American.”
But above it all sits the voice of the storyteller. Producers ditched the autotune relied on by so many modern artists to instead create an artifact of humanistic beauty: one songwriter and his stories, the way he wants them told.
Coates has toured nationally, opened for major-label acts like Sheryl Crow and received airplay on KEXP. One Last Ride is available everywhere October 16th.
