Liquid City Harbor Needs Your Support This Week!

OK, here's the deal.  This band... we'll just say it.  ROCKS.  It's not just the same old sound.  It's unique.  You want to listen; you want to hear more.  Our production staff is drooling at the idea of partnering with these fine gentlemen from the 'Couve (that's Vancouver, WA, by the way).

They put on a great show for their fans at Pop Culture in downtown Vancouver last weekend.  Our team was there and was amazed by the energy and how much the crowd responded to this trio.  We don't even want to compare them to another band because, frankly, one can't.

Check out their kickstarter project HERE - Their window of opportunity ends the Sunday after Thanksgiving at 9pm PST.  Don't miss out... we want to hear this LP!
PS - Watch the kickstarter video to the end... it will show you how great their improv skills are.

Audition Nov 9, 10am-5pm: Signed Rock Band seeks 18-20(ish) M/F lead singer (Vancouver, WA)

Vancouver, WA, October 19, 2012 -- BentBeat Productions' Jozi Bently announced today an audition date today for a singer to front an established rock band. The band is currently approaching completion of recording their first full length LP on the BentBeat label. This group has had a full performance schedule at venues such as The Red Room, Pop Culture, The Annex, Hawthorne Theater, and the Portland Music Theater.

Currently made up of the founding members (2 guitars, bass, and drums), the band was established in 2008. A prospective singer should be ready to step into the recording studio as well as join the band for the summer 2013 performance schedule and beyond. "This group of gentlemen does not subscribe to the typical rockstar lifestyle," reported Bently, "That is, they are a bunch of clean-living guys who rock out clubs on Saturday nights but go to church on Sunday mornings."

The band is looking for either a male or female (18-20's) who: meshes with the hard rock style (i.e., Thousand Foot Crutch, Avenged Sevenfold, Three Days Grace), is willing to attending weekly rehearsals in Vancouver, is a team-player who enjoys collaboration, knows how to have fun while entertaining a crowd, and is open to a future "on the road" touring schedule. The band's music is targeted to the 20-something age group.

Auditions will be held:

Friday, November 9th at 10am (last audition to start no later than 3pm)

Location:

River's Edge Church (No phone calls please)
3801 Northwest Fruit Valley Road
Vancouver, WA 98660

Please RSVP by emailing info@bentbeat.com no later than Wednesday, November 7th. Please include your contact information (email, phone number), and preferred time(s) between 10am-5pm you are available. We will reply with a window of time for your audition.

Qualified candidates should bring a picture and a bio sheet. Having a song prepared to sing in the rock genre to audition with.

BentBeat Productions is representing a professional, working team of musicians. No phone calls please.

BentBeat Productions Releases Their First Full-Length Album, "Country Girl"

Vancouver, WA, July 20, 2012 --(PR.com)-- BentBeat Productions, a focused music label located in Vancouver, Washington, releases their first commercial full-length project: "Country Girl - Music From The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" performed by Jozi Bently and Dave Beatty.

“Country Girl - Music From The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack” is a compilation of songs written, performed, and produced by BentBeat owners and artists Jozi Bently and Dave Beatty for the movie “Country Girl,” independently released in 2012. The album has 15 tracks that showcase various musical styles. “Even though the movie was about a country singer, we wanted to show both how flexible music could be in its styling and how versatile we could be with our production,” said Bently, who performed all of the original music for the movie and the soundtrack. “The character was written to perform pop-country songs in the movie, but the soundtrack contains two different versions of almost every song. The project includes the film version and an additional version that takes the same song in an entirely different musical direction.” Among the various musical genres the soundtrack contains are classic rock, pop rock, singer-songwriter, and dance remixes.

“One of the great features of the soundtrack are the performances by guest artists who joined the production, each with a different musical style,” said Beatty. “It was interesting to include these artists that vary so much in style, because that is really what BentBeat is all about.”

The label began official operation in 2011 and has been working actively to recruit artists for representation. As with the songs on the soundtrack, these artists vary greatly in their musical genres and styling. “We’ve worked with everyone from acoustic singer-songwriters to metal bands,” Bently explained. “The soundtrack is a great illustration of the label’s versatile recording and production capabilities.” With the exception of the three guest performances all songs on the soundtrack were written by Bently and Beatty, and all recording and production was performed at BentBeat Studios. “We have a great cast of musicians to pull from when we record, and our engineers and producers are experienced and top-notch,” said Beatty. “You can really hear the talent and professionalism of the final recording. Artists who come to BentBeat can expect to get a quality-level product that showcases their sound and reflects who they are as a musician.”

The full length CD, “Jozi Bently – Country Girl,” is available for purchase on amazon.com, or download from iTunes, Spotify, Rhapsoldy, and many other download sites.
