This band has no press


Still working on that hot first release.



Once folk and punk and their kin challenged the conventional wisdom, finding it to be rather unwise. But the market penetrates, and so much has been commoditized now.

What is needed is protest music that moves beyond the easy targets. Music that cuts to the core of who we are, and challenges us to be more. Songs about claiming true freedom and responsibility, rather than that illusion of freedom spoon-fed to us by shared media and unexamined rituals. Songs of emancipation once railed against the assembly line; what should their target be now that we are the assembled? The answer must move beyond Nihilism. New values, multiplex perspectives, and experiments in living are needed. Existentialist folk-rock aspires to be the soundtrack of these new awakenings.

Dipp staffed punk rock, lofi and alt-dujour bands throughout his prolonged adolescence. Fickle tastes in a barren town soured the muses, and a different path was taken. But green thoughts sleep furiously, and when they awaken they demand a reckoning. Back from a 13 year exile in the wilderness, Dipp spent a 14th year in hiding, crafting new songs that challenge us to pursue idealized selves, even as our ideals slip away to further, as yet unimagined horizons. 

Dipp Jonz has returned to sing of self-overcoming, of love most biological, of destinies that are not given but must be earned.
