Akron’s DreamSTATE Records has been keeping its artists busy lately. Matthew Sturgeon, who used to play synths in the Akron electro-pop band 20goto10, is working on a solo album. His first record since the group broke up is due soon.
Clevelander Vince Tyree is also working on a new CD. The singer-songwriter is recording with local producer Jakob Ward. Speaking of Ward, he’s prepping his own album of weirdo pop, Speed Dial, for imminent release. --Michael Gallucci
