Van Wild

Yasmine Van Wilt is a North-American singer-songwriter, writer and actress. She’s completed a PhD in Creative Writing and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts.

A musical chameleon, she records under her own name and under the name of her two alter egos, Elle “A” and Antoinette. She describes her music—that she creates for herself—as “a folk-rock-pop hybrid, with a strong dash of Delta Blues”.

Rocky

Rocky is stepping out as a solo artist after signing with Zen Bulldog Entertainment, out of New York City, in early 2015. She has a revitalized sound and show.

G9

Hailing from Moscow, Russia, G9 blends pop-rock, electronic, and rap elements together to create an explosive sound. Tim Palmer’s review underlines the band’s unique groove, a strong combination of sounds, and Paramore-like vocals.

Following the band's inception in 2008, the combo quickly earned a positive reputation for its fierce live sets. Combining hard rock, punk, rock and pop elements, G9’s music brings to mind artists such as Fall Out Boy, Linkin Park, and Sleigh Bells.

The band has performed at national music festivals including Nashestvie, Dobrofest, Maxi Drive, and OzROCK, has shared a stage with Fall Out Boy, and has radio rotation and TV appearances.

Trey Connor

TREY CONNOR is a 21-year-old pop/rock songwriter and guitarist from a small town near Detroit/Flint MI. Performing since age 13, he captivates audiences of all ages with crystal clear vocals and artful guitar work. 
At age 15 Trey formed and fronted the Modern Rock band Bulletproof Snow and in the next few years, wrote and released two EP’s, “Punished For My Innocence” and “Here We Come”. Rising quickly, the band prevailed in several competitions receiving various awards, including the 2015 Detroit Music Awards People's Choice Award for Trey’s song “Here We Come”.

Piper

Growing up in a small Kansas town, Piper, the daughter of an inspirational top-ten recording
artist, was always drawn to music. At 15 she began her own career as an actress and singer on
the Disney sponsored sitcom iShine Knect. She has since been featured on numerous TV
shows such as America's Got Talent, movies, and podcasts, as well as performing extensively
throughout the United States, Canada, and Africa.

 

 

Trapped In Static

Trapped In Static (TIS.) made their New York City debut in 2011 as an alternative rock/indie band featuring singer/guitarist Athan Hilaki (formerly of GAD.) and drummer David Torres. Athan's dynamically strong vocals feature a falsetto and a hint of raspy power that are often compared to vocal legends like Bono, Chris Cornell, Kurt Cobain, Eddie Vedder and Scott Stapp. David's drum rhythms take their influence from Kings Of Leon, Phoenix and Interpol. The core of the band is completed with Gina Rebelo on bass (formerly of Three Day Threshold) and influences from Bootsy Collins to John Paul Jones, creating the foundational surge for the listener to truly become part of the music. Using the depth of life experiences as inspiration for their lyrics, the band strive to connect with the listener through rock-and-roll infused messages of overcoming obstacles with a tinge of sorrow-filled hope. Guitar riffs, keyboards, string section, bass lines, drum rhythms and a strong emotionally-charged stage presence add to the radio-ready experience of TIS.

The Parsnip Revolt

Striving for perfection can be a detailed and hard earned journey. The biggest critic of any musical group is usually themselves and The Parsnip Revolt is that very scenario in motion. With their last album, A Sunshine Report, The Parsnip Revolt found their own open highway to successful longevity.
Reminiscent of Ryan Adams, The Head and the Heart, and Wilco, The Parsnip Revolt are a tightly packaged track driven band loaded with catchy melodies, riffs, and emotional feeling.

HOAX

Formed from the halls of Hofstra University, HOAX is a 5 piece indie-alternative rock band hailing from Long Island, NY. The band is made up of Michael Raj (vocals), Frantz Cesar (Bass), Kevin Lopez (Guitar), Jacob Lopez (Drums), and Paul Brower (Guitar).

Obsessed with Maj7 Guitar Chords, vintage bass, and soulful vocals, HOAX found a unique sound around introspective lyrics. Comparisons have been made to other great alternative rockers such as Kings of Leon & Young the Giant, but HOAX likes to experiment with elements of pop, R&B, and hip-hop and layer this under alternative and indie-soul roots. The band’s sound is as eclectic as its members but was best summarized by a friend who described their music as “the sound of beautiful sadness.”

 

Just Like Honey

JUST LIKE HONEY is an international band and music project formed in late 2014 by Bianca Yang, Darlene Jonasson, Patrick Le Mar and his younger half-brother Steve Le Mar. The band is currently located in western Germany, half-jokingly insisting not be a “German band” because its members actually are from the USA, Sweden, Korea and France.

Although JUST LIKE HONEY’s style is often being referred to as “Dream Pop” or “Shoegazing”, the band is characterized by a rather large number of different sounds and by the experimental, and sometimes chaotic production style of Patrick Le Mar, JUST LIKE HONEY’s mastermind.

Pearl Handled Revolver

It's music that sounds like it's coming up through the gutter from a subterranean blues club that is frequented by a collection of vagabonds and circus freaks tripping on hallucigens.' - Powerplay

The retro-rockers from Bedfordshire sounded a warning shot with last year's debut album Colossus. Now they're about to return... with a follow-up called This Mountain Waits that adds the priceless element of maturity to the mix. - Classic Rock Magazine

The Critically Famed

Birthed out of Chicago, Illinois The Critically Famed was founded by brothers Josh and Jeremy Sentner on May 13th, 2017. The band is currently in the studio creating their debut album "music for the city." Full of chill vibes and smooth, passionate vocals over driving rhythms and energetic, sparkling guitar riffs; this record is set to release Spring of 2018. Following the release, The Critically Famed is set to play the "music for the city" Tour this upcoming Summer.

Teddy Matthews

Teddy Mathews is a guitarist and singer/song writer from Worcestershire. With his recently released singles ‘LOVE’ & ‘WORRY’ it would seem Teddy has slipped under our musical radar. Within the last month he’s been aired on BBC introducing, gigged at some of our local music festivals. As well as finding time to film a music video and putting together and rehearsing with a live 4 piece band to take on the road.

Greg Harrison Band

After a near death experience, Greg Harrison decided music was the best medicine for his soul. So after many months of mental and physical struggles he decided to make it his life. He started playing many shows but eventually got tired of playing alone.
So he went out and snagged up lead guitarist, John Bonnett. Greg and John had occasionally played shows together in the past so they knew they could at least have a good time jamming together.  Show's we're going great for the two of them but after a few gig's they felt in definite need of some percussion. It just so happened they didn't have to look too far, as good friend and multi-talented Zack Lilley, just happened to be free to join in on the fun. Not only does Zack keep the beats but he brings great writing skills to the band as well.

Marly Kay Music

Looking back on her childhood, Marly Kay admits that if you had asked her then if she had ever imagined being a singer, the response would have been no. Growing up in a family of all boys, Marly Kay dedicated most of her time to sports, and much less to the arts...minus her extreme passion for the piano. It wasn't until a debilitating knee injury that kept her out of the games that Marly literally "fell into" the love of singing, and has never, and will never look back. 

Since the time when a close friend first asked her to perform in a local pop/classic rock cover band, Marly Kay has grown from being just the singer of a band, to defining her own identity as an artist. In addition to writing and composing her songs, Marly is also a multi-instrumentalist who dedicates most of her time outside of the studio educating aspiring young musicians and vocalists to pursue their dreams as she has pursued hers.

Karen Lee Andrews

Karen Lee Andrews (Formerly known by her stage name Ms Murphy) came into the public’s awareness in 2013, through her soul slaying performances on TV’s hit show, The Voice Australia. Ms Andrews has that rare gift to communicate the unspeakable. Cameron Adams, from the Herald Sun, says, “Ms Andrews has one of those authentic sounds you hear, even through the gloss of TV, you can tell she has lived and loved.” Her sensibility allows the audience to surrender to the music, the experience is mutually warm and commanding.

Indigo Storm Band

Indigo Storm is rapidly becoming known for original composition packed with interesting lyrics, powerful vocals, and outstanding instrumentals that simply draw you in. CJ Jones (guitar and vocals), Ryan Slayton (drums), and David DeWolfe (bass), join forces to generate their brand of contagious rock. As noted by Indigo Storm listeners: 

"The riffs came down hard and fast without any warningwhatsoever. Now I know how it feels to live in Kansas during tornado season."
