San Diego has long been known as a hotbed of great musical talent. What’s more, San Diego is home to one of the best music venues on the West Coast. Since 1974, the Belly Up has been featuring great local bands from the Cedros Design District.

This episode features performances by The Tilt and Dead Feather Moon.

THE TILT

An eclectic mix of blues, rock, and country drives the innovative sound of the new San Diego band The Tilt. Fronted by singer Jesse Malley and guitarist Jeff Irwin, San Diego-based quintet The Tilt plays a terrific mix of Southern blues, country and folk, with a touch of classic rock, a la Led Zeppelin.

The Tilt is on Facebook, and you can follow @TheTiltMusic on Twitter.

DEAD FEATHER MOON

Dead Feather Moon is a San Diego-based outfit whose distinguished sound combines rock with alt-country and psychedelic blues. Their heartfelt performances and rapidly-growing fan base have established them as one of San Diego’s most sought-after musical acts.

The band entered White Horse Studios during February of 2011, where they recorded their debut full-length album over the course of eight days. These ten tracks constitute their record, "Dark Sun."

Crafted with a sense of purpose and urgency, the album quickly generated enough buzz to garner the attention of San Diego’s 91X and FM94/9 radio stations - where the band receives consistent airplay.

When the band is not touring, you can find them rehearsing four nights a week. They continue to write new material and fine-tune their live performances. Their steady stream of concerts in the greater San Diego area include headlining shows at renowned venues.
