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
LiVKi - Dark Blonde Rises
LiVKi - Tel Aviv

The first Jonah Smith song I heard was titled "Tone of Your Voice" that he offered up for free on the old MP3.Com in anut 2000 or 2001. 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. It features Jonah Smith, Carrie Rodriguez, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Doug Wamble, Leah Siegel, Andy Stack, Lucius, Maya Azucena, Rich Hinman, Christian Ver Halen and Ben Rubin. (production credits listed at bottom of post)
The second video below is a bit more recent,from a May 2014 post to his YouTube page. Jonah wrote this song titled The Umbrella for his album named In The Kitchen, which he made with fellow artist, Andy Stack. It was filmed, recorded and edited by Neil Fennel. Enjoy! GC

Off the prolific U.K. based indie label Mr. Bongo is a tasty groove artist named Hollie Cook who self describes her music as tropical pop.
Cook is of extremely credible music industry lineage. Her father is Sex Pistols drummer Paul Cook. Her mother, Jeni, was a back up singer in Boy George's Culture Club, one of the most grooving soulful pop bands of all time. To top it off, Boy George is Hollie Cook's godfather.
Since about 2006, when she stepped into the music business, she has collaborated with a wide range of people, paid her dues and covered a lot of ground.
As a solo artist, she has released three albums on the Mr. Bongo imprint. The most recent release is titled Twice. The tracks featured below include the music video for the song titled Postman which is track #5 on the album, the music video to Looking For Real Love which is track #6 on the album.
