After long thought and
deliberation as to what we at YDK and Traz Productions could do to
increase the enjoyability of LDCB, we decided to launch the Official

we will provide you with links to all the great bands you will hear

To kick things off,
we debuted the efforts of our first musical agreement in the trailer
for Episode 9. The music featured in the trailer will also be featured

future agreements with other bands for future webisodes.

With a voice as strong as any legendary blues singer and guitar skills to match, Jonathan Blake delights fans with a strong blend of roots and new ideas. His first album "Wake Up Call," recorded by L.A. Producer Rob Mullins, takes listeners on an acoustic journey through the mind of a storyteller wise beyond his 21 years, combining flavors of the south and the breezy winds of California surf culture.
On "Wake Up Call": "To say that 'Wake Up Call' is the next 'must-have' CD would be way too cliché. But if you don't check out this album, you are cheating yourself out of the opportunity to witness where this brilliant young artist begins his career, and where he ultimately takes it. Jon's debut album is anything but mainstream, but to truly understand what I'm saying, you just gotta hear it for yourself." - Mik Homer, Executive Writer/Producer for KBRT Radio, AM 740

2012 (established in 2005) is the
result of 19 years
of musical experience on many different levels. Ever since he was born,
Lewis Hurrell has always been very sensitive to sound. At the age of
eight, he was given a small keyboard - it was only about a foot long
with around 20 keys built into it. After figuring out what notes
sounded good together, he started piecing together songs. About a year
later, he was lucky enough for his family to buy a regular sized piano
which expanded the world of music for Lewis.
He hadn't ever performed before
and when he was given the oppertunity to play for a benifit in New York
City, he jumped
at the opportunity. Playing in front of all those people and seeing the
looks on their faces was a very powerful thing for a 12 year old piano
player to see and feel. Lewis then after continued to make more and
more music, learning from his mistakes and growing from them. He never
took any lessons. It wasn't until the end of his senior year in High
School that Lewis started to take off on his musical career.
Until that point, he had been
involved in a serious relationship for over a year with a person he
truly could say "I love
you" to. When she went away to college, they had to say goodbye. It was
at this very moment that Lewis knew what he wanted to do with the rest
of his life; some of 2012's greatest songs were made in this period of
time when the two parted ways. For Lewis, she would be the person who
would set him free to create music that has grown to inspire many; he
couldln't be happier for this blessing in disguise.
More bands to come!
