(PRWEB UK) 4 July 2012 Banjos Direct, which was launched in October 2011 has become a leading player in the British banjo market and is at the forefront of a revival in the instrument's popularity.
Founder of the company, the former brand strategy consultant Simon Middleton, explained: "All the evidence across the musical instrument sector is that the sector as a whole is stagnant, but that banjos and related instruments are one of the few areas of growth.
"Since our launch which is only 9 months ago, we've experienced an extraordinary level of interest in the banjo from experienced musicians and beginners alike."
Banjos Direct, which sells resonator guitars, mandolins and other folk instruments, as well as banjos is based in Norwich in the UK, but sells instruments all over the world.
The company operates a small showroom for customers but says more than 95% of its sales are made online.

Sparta, NJ (PRWEB) June 30, 2012 Predominance LLC will post rare tracks for free from Stonecold, the 1980s Jazz/Rock fusion band from Boston. The band was started in the Boston area by Scott Steinetz and Matthew Quinn and featured fellow Berklee students Stuart Hamm on bass; Steve Wilkes on drums; Patty Unaitis vocals; Bruce Arnold E. guitar; Matt Quinn keyboards and Scott Steinetz clarinet.
This band was a culmination of the times, said Scott Steinetz, We wanted to make money but the musicians really felt they had to be challenged as well.

This is my tiny collection of guitar picks.
(PRWEB UK) 30 June 2012 Here and Now makes you stop and listen. Stefan Drechsel's music invites you to explore hidden moments of magic, infinite possibilities and reconnects you with things extraordinary, precious and real. Original and moving, Here and Now is familiar like an old friend leading you home, with a soulful energy that will warm your heart.
The Blue Yonder is the first single from the album and lays the blueprint for the journey ahead. Soft vocals lead you through quiet melodic memories before the heart-soaring crescendo of the chorus throws you into an uplifting world filled with emotions, eventually sliding down into a lucid interval of stillness, as if from beyond.
Optimism weaves through every song on the album, even those exploring the darker aspects of life. Stefan says: Here and Now covers the whole spectrum of emotions. I want my music to be accessible and real, but nothing stays dark forever. Even from the most murky places light and hope will always exist.
Fools of Love an enchanting duet with Honduran/British singer Cecilia Delgado is one such song, where both the longing and

Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 30, 2012 Office space has been undergoing a major cultural revolution ever since post WWII. Directly after WWII, the office space became a reflection of self-worth. Then in the 80s it became a sharing open floorplan of cubicles. By the 90s, the high-tech start-ups pulled down the walls and the office space was wherever you could set down your laptop. We now live in a knowledge economy and lifestyle plays an important role in the office environment.
Small Army, a boutique ad agency, located in Bostons old Horticultural Hall, directly across the street from the Boston Symphony Orchestra tapped into this new trend in a big way. According to Steve Kolander, EVP/Creative Director of Small Army, We consider ourselves storytellers instead of ad guys, and we wanted an office space that felt more honest and less manufactured. In an effort to bring this unique direction to life, Small Army hired a young team of designers called The Makers Co. to make a space that was collaborative, free-thinking, imaginative and self-reflective.
Senior art director, Christian Williams of Small Army happened to be one of the Makers, and so with an intimate knowledge of its personality,
