A romantic clash between your Dad's long lost favorite psych record and the soundtrack to a John Hughes film, Heaven ride a massive sonic wave in delivering their dear and dreamy tracks. Matt Sumrow and Mikey Jones created Heaven in the wake of touring and recording with artists such as DEAN and BRITTA, SWERVEDRIVER, AMBULANCE LTD, the COMAS, SNOWDEN, THE BIG SLEEP and others. After supporting and touring with other artists for years, they have finally arrived at making their own albums in their own band, Heaven.

In July of 2013, Heaven released their debut LP Telepathic Love on Goodnight Records. The live lineup came together on the touring of Telepathic Love with the addition of bassist Yoi Fujita (SNOWDEN) and Ian Fenger (AMBULANCE LTD) who have since become permanent members.
During an adventurous summer/fall of 2013 (where drummer Jones was involved in a car accident, suffered temporary but severe memory loss, and literally went missing for three months- only to be found working the marijuana fields of Northern California) the band made tour stops at SXSW, two east coast tours, many in studio/in store performances, as well as numerous online and print reviews.

Guiding Light
Guiding Light
Musician Jason Sebastian Russo (Mercury Rev, Hopewell, Common Prayer, Kevin Devine) and filmmaker Tara Autovino (Ultimate Christian Wrestling, for a swim with the fish) are Guiding Light. The songs are more rock than Common Prayer but rock in a very different way than Hopewell or Mercury Rev. Think minimalist over maximalist production. A focus on vibe rather than elaborate technique. Lead vocal duties will be shared by Tara and Jason.

Guiding Light is the name of an American soap opera, popular in the 1980's, which may or may not have had a character named Tara, after whom Mrs. Autovino may or may not have named her daughter.
