Sammy Plotkin is a pop singer-songwriter and producer from Somers, Connecticut. Having grown up in a small suburb, he constantly broke the norms of society simply by choosing to be a songwriter. He dreamed of one day living in a society where creativity is embraced. At the age of 8, he began to be a featured soloist in a local singing group called the Dan Kane Singers. Having been noticed by the director for his true passion, he was offered the opportunity to make his first album. By his freshman year of high school, Plotkin was traveling to Nashville to record with producer Cliff Downs. Today, living in Nashville, TN, Sammy has developed a unique pop sound that he is constantly developing. His unapologetic and truthful lyrics reflect his honesty and genuine passion to connect with people. He embraces pop music, seeing it as an opportunity to inspire and positively influence society. These days he produces his own music in addition to working with other talented producers as he continues to build his fan base and perform.

Jan Jacob Mekes - Bouffon Stories 2012

Jan says: “What I like about Groupees is that it isn’t just focused on games, like many bundle sites, but it allows people to find out about interesting things from other media as well. So I see the Groupees Community as consisting of people who want the best of all worlds and are open to discovery; and with the social and charity aspects, it’s just made of win.”

A collection of 21 stories, written by Jan Jacob Mekes according to writing prompts handed to him by readers. This fine selection will have you laughing, crying, shivering and scratching your head for nights (if you’re a slow reader) or seconds (if you read really, really fast) on end.

Regardless of your reading speed, you’re sure to find at least one story here that you’ll love, and more than one that you’ll like. Enjoy this eclectic collection of (non-Bermuda) shorts!

Jan Jacob Mekes was born in 1982 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, in the body of an English-language writer. For three decades, he tried to suppress the stories, but it was to no avail: they gained the upper hand, and he gave in. So now he writes stories of various length spanning multiple genres, but always with a dash of humour. When not busy writing fiction, he works as a freelance writer and translator (from English into Dutch and vice versa), and as a volunteer for the local police force, writing about its history (after having acquired his BA in that). He also likes gaming, photography, nature, and cats. Oh, and reading, of course.

Pantheon says: “Pantheon are a new British Metal band with no nonsense, honest song writing at it’s core. We try to challenge issues in the world relevant to us today with a backdrop of driving rhythms, massive twin guitar riffs and powerful vocal lines. We hope you enjoy our latest release which marks the end of a development period, working alongside metal producer Zak Bajjon and digital artist Cyrus Crashtest. Our involvement with Groupees is a great opportunity for you to get the EP ‘Intervention’ and for us to widen our international audience while contributing to a good cause. Keep it metal \m/”

Heavy metal has the power to inspire, unite and influence change with an energy unique to the genre. Formed in York, England, PANTHEON share this common philosophy and strive to write honest, relevant music with an industrious attitude to match.

Pantheon have crafted a sound that acknowledges the roots of heavy metal but is firmly grounded in the 21st century. Their new release ‘INTERVENTION’ captures this attitude musically and with the stunning new artwork, complimenting strong lyrical concepts with a backdrop of massive twin guitar riffs, driving rhythms and powerful vocal lines.

Moss Points North released their first EP, The Ghost at The Feast, in May 2011. The six-song album showcases the group’s diverse range of influences. Opener “Setting Sun” features a calypso-like groove, while the impassioned “True Love” builds on a soulful Motown-inspired riff. “The Owls”, one of band’s live set highlights, grows out of a quiet acoustic samba and into a pulsing and frenetic rock number.

(320kbps MP3 + FLAC)

Moss Points North are an indie/alternative band from Boston that combine distinctive songwriting with warm ambience and carefully-crafted instrumental arrangements. Since meeting in their college dorms in 2007, the band has developed an eclectic and distinct sound that draws comparisons to Wilco, Radiohead, My Morning Jacket, and Modest Mouse.

MTDK says: “It’s always great when you find a new community built arround something you like, and that’s what I though about Groupees the first time I heard about it. But it’s even better when, somehow, you end up contributing your work to that same people who have offered you that much. For letting us contribute and giving us a way to show the world what we do, Thank you, Groupees.”

J.L. Oakman - Rules of a Setting Sun

J.L. says: “I’ve seen some incredible things from the Groupees community - from coming together in the chat to work out the next mystery game to buying bundles at incredible prices to support some of the great charities I’ve seen supported. I’m J.L. Oakman, a writer and poet - some of my work is featured in the upcoming community bundle, I hope you enjoy the pieces me and many other talented people have put into it.”

This book is a collection of my poetry, written over the last five years. I’ve selected poems from as broad a period as I could, so while they may not be connected, the writing style and subject matter tell a story of their own, over time. The story of their writer.

J.L. Oakman, author of poetry anthology Rules of a Setting Sun, is a writer, freelancer and editor. He is also the creator of the online fiction collection, A Fort Knight’s Tale.

For my love (whenever I may find her) Play

Falling leaves Play
Dimance avec Sophie Play
Drifting Play

This EP is a collection of the very first classical orchestra inspired tunes composed by Fredrik Schultz.

Liner notes: * For my love (whenever I may find her) was the first piece of classical instrumented music he wrote. * A Mid summer wedding was composed and dedicated to Marcus and Elin who got married on the 24th of June 2006. * Falling Leaves was composed during one of those autumn days with crisp air and trees covered with colourful leaves that one by one let go and gently falls to the ground. * Dimanche avec Sophie is a soft piano piece for cloudy, yet bright and a little foggy days in Paris. * Drifting was composed to accompany game credits.

(320kbps MP3 + FLAC)

Creatively speaking we live in a very interesting time where a simple computer easily transforms into a full blown music studio and where a whole symphony orchestra is just a key press away. This is something that Fredrik just couldn’t stay away from. Besides sporadically composing music he also engage in painting and a couple of open source projects among other things.

Fredrik has been a Groupees user since the first Be Mine bundle.

Jan Jacob Mekes - Struglend Tales

Jan says: “What I like about Groupees is that it isn’t just focused on games, like many bundle sites, but it allows people to find out about interesting things from other media as well. So I see the Groupees Community as consisting of people who want the best of all worlds and are open to discovery; and with the social and charity aspects, it’s just made of win.”

Struglend Tales is the first book in The Struglend Saga, a series of comedy fantasy books written by Jan Jacob Mekes. The book follows Edward, the ugliest and probably most haphazard king Struglend has ever had, and his herald Fred, as they go on a quest to restore order to the universe. Well, maybe not the universe, but at least the little piece of land they call home – Struglend. In their journey to remove the evil knight who has invaded the kingdom, they meet several hilarious characters and often find themselves in tight situations to manoeuver out of. Will they succeed in driving out the evil that so brutally violated their land? Maybe they will, maybe they won’t. What’s certain is that you’ll have many a laugh while you read and find out.

Lanark says: “I’ve followed Groupees growing from the begining, actively buying and commenting and seeing a very nice community growing up from all over the world, where the discussion, the little funny remarks and the wisely recommendations where always and all about the topics which we all love and care: bleeding edge new games and music and new forms of rewarding new and old artists we like, and encouraging them to continue in the development of new art forms.”

How to preserve music from oblivion…

Put the sheet music on the machine. Wait. An insect or similar kind of animal is produced. Let it live and transform. Put it back on the machine. Wait. A new sheet music is produced. Play it. (over an idea by Philip K. Dick)

He has taken part in many audiovisual projects in different formats in Argentina, France and the UK.

Undead Viking Mafia - Ours, and Fairly Won

Last Call Play
500 Year Scotch Play
Hello, My Carcass Play

We’re excited to be a part of this Community Groupees Bundle and are looking forward to what the rest of the community is making. Our members have purchased several of the Be Mine bundles, the Oni Press Bundle and the Chiptunes+Charity 2 Bundle. Everything we’ve received has been great and we likely wouldn’t have discovered the majority of it if it wasn’t for Groupees. We hope you enjoy the contribution of our latest EP “Ours, and Fairly Won.” You can learn more about us by clicking the facebook icon above.

From a land with a past mired in brothers’ bloodshed and its own fiery decimation, comes Atlanta’s Undead Viking Mafia, a band whose very ethos is wrought with the decades of history sown beneath their feet. Deep within their eclectic metal and rock sound lies a stark, gritty urgency that channels the spirits of Muddy Waters and Pantera cooperatively. With the release of their third EP, “Ours, and Fairly Won” Undead Viking Mafia pays tribute, and lays waste, to every stage built south of the Mason Dixon Line, in a manner unlike any other band of gentlemen in the last 150 years.

“Initially I love the fact that this partnership and my craft allows me to contribute towards helping a charity. overall, I love groupees.com because of the amount of support the community provides for independent artists.”

“The support that Groupees.com provides helps artists understand that as an indie artists, you must be persistant; though you may get discouraged every once in awhile… don’t let that be a crutch… overcoming that makes you ten times stronger than the message you provided in your previous piece of art… when you put yourself out there like that… you come to expect to be discouraged every so often… thats the fun, seeing what comes next.”

Google Hangout with Noah T

I’m offering up a 30 minute hangout / Q & A / House Concert! I’ll field questions, and play a 20-25 minute set with a couple friends from The Calamities stepping in on guitar and upright bass! (https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Calamities/120007981390640) I might even play some demos off my next album, Infinite Sleep.

Normally I lurk in the chats for the bundles, and can be found dropping semi-relevant gaming opinions almost daily. I started hanging out in groupees chats when Is Anybody Home? was a part of Build-a-bundle 2, and I stayed through Be Mine 4, which had Work With Me, then Be Mine Anniversary which had the Surface EP. At this rate, I’ll probably never leave! Also, if you’ve missed any of my albums in previous bundles and want to pick one up, you can use the code Groupees at NoahTMusic.com to get Is Anybody Home? for $2 or any other album for $1

Noah T is from Tulsa, Oklahoma and is bringing his brand of organic instrumental music to the interwebs. “Is Anybody Home?” is his first full-length album on Hard Work Records and features Noah on all instruments.

“It’s really a culmination of the instruments I’ve enjoyed playing around with. Chord organ, Melodica, Bells and found percussion play a big part in this album along with standards like acoustic guitar and bass. I wondered if anyone would resonate with the music, which led me to wonder, Is Anybody Home?. I hope you’ll enjoy it” -Noah T
