San Francisco based piano-pop trio True Margrit is fronted by singer-songwriter and piano-player Margrit Eichler. Backed by Gary Hobish on bass and Andrew Bacon on drums, Margrit delivers her intelligent, upbeat songs with just enough pop flavor to be head-boppingly catchy, and just enough indie quirk to keep your ears on their toes. Their newest album, The Juggler's Progress, is the fifth release for the band that has been described as "Aimee Mann & Ben Folds meet the Decemberists for speed Scrabble."

John Buckman is the founder of Berkeley, California-based recording label Magnatune, a pioneer in digital downloading, application of Creative Commons copyrights, and artist-friendly business practices, sometimes referred to as "fair trade music."
An accomplished software programmer, Buckman is thought to be the first to use the term open music, an expression derived from the open source software community, in which he has been active. It refers to music that is shareable, available in "source code" form (individual tracks), permits certain forms of derivative works (i.e. remixes), and is made available at no cost for non-commercial use. Since founding Magnatune, Buckman has signed more than 250 recording artists across multiple genres. Buckman also chairs the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), an international non-profit digital rights advocacy and legal organization, and has been profiled by Forbes, Inc. Magazine, and The Economist.[wikipedia]
by Marvin Bell
You are not beautiful, exactly.
You are beautiful, inexactly.
You let a weed grow by the mulberry
and a mulberry grow by the house.
So close, in the personal quiet
of a windy night, it brushes the wall
and sweeps away the day till we sleep.
A child said it, and it seemed true:
"Things that are lost are all equal."
But it isn't true. If I lost you,
the air wouldn't move, nor the tree grow.
Someone would pull the weed, my flower.
The quiet wouldn't be yours. If I lost you,
I'd have to ask the grass to let me sleep.
Marvin Bell was born in New York City on August 3, 1937, and grew up in Center Moriches, on the south shore of eastern Long Island. He holds a Bachelor of Arts from Alfred University, a Master of Arts from the University of Chicago, and a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Iowa.
