Off of the Silver Scream Records imprint is a interesting female bassist, composer, and singer named Olivia Anna Livki who also is known as LiVKi. She was born in Poland and raised in the Black Forest of Germany.
This first song below titled Dark Blonde Rises, is sort of an anthem song. The second song below which might be my fave, is titled Tel Aviv, hints at David Byrne and the Talking Heads meets Frank Zappa with Moon Unit. Instead, it's a cool girl with a bass. Enjoy! GC

Have been following Jonah Smith for years and years, since the first time I heard his track entitled "Tone of Your Voice" that he offered up for free on the old MP3.Com in it's infancy. That song has a great feel that was sort of like Steely Dan meets Van Morrison. Have been following Jonah ever since and he constantly puts out great music.
This first video below is one of a vast series of live recordings dubbed the Cumberland Loft Sessions, shot in Brooklyn, NY in his apartment in front of a live audience way back in 2009
This second video below is a bit more recent,from a May 2014 post to his YouTube page. Jonah wrote this song titled The Umbrella from his album named In The Kitchen, which he made with fellow artist, Andy Stack. Enjoy! GC
