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.

VISTA

Welcome to The Oasis - a metaphorical safe haven created by alternative rock band VISTA (comprised of lead vocalist Hope Vista and guitarist Greg Almeida) for anyone looking to find a sanctuary in an apocalyptic world. Combining both alternative rock and electronic influences to create their anthemic sound, VISTA's sophomore EP "Long Live" centralizes around the lyrical theme of forming an allegiance against injustice and finding an oasis in a dystopian society.The 7-track EP, featuring the lead single “Allegiance,” immediately made its’ way onto three different iTunes Alternative charts, including peaking at #10 on the top selling $5.99 albums, and the opening date of their first headlining tour “The Long Live Tour,” a hometown EP release show, was sold out.

Final Update for this week boys and girls...

We checked a lot of bands but we picked a few!

We present....

 

 

Brady Wade

Born and raised in California, Brady Wade has been composing music in a wide variety of genres, spanning from Rock, Adult Alternative, R&B, Soul, Country and Contemporary Christian. Working with some of the best producers and undiscovered artists, he has created The Brady Wade Sessions featuring just a few of his extensive song collection which includes over 200 songs in his catalogue. 
All Music and Lyrics on this page written and produced by Brady Wade, ASCAP.


Jim Duff

Duff, whose ancestry dates back to the 10th Scottish king of Alba or Scotland, grew up in Waynesburg, KY. He also spent time living in areas such as Charlotte, NC, Los Angeles, CA, Las Vegas, NV and San Juan, Puerto Rico. Nowadays, his home is in Austin TX. He first picked up a guitar at age 12 and was instantly hooked. He taught himself the guitar as well as the piano, mandolin and drums over the years.
His style reflects many of the artists in his record collection. There are greats such as Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson lined up alongside Eric Clapton, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Guy Clark. Jim combines traditional Country ballads with flashes of Southern Rock and Blues that come together to create a sound that is both familiar yet refreshingly new.


Kédence

Being exposed to music my whole life, it only seemed natural to pursue a career in music. Inspired by my mother’s singing and songwriting abilities, it was like having my own private vocal instructor; she taught me everything I know about singing. About 8 years ago, I ventured into producing music to accompany her original lyrics, and the music blossomed from there. Since then we have been churning out lyrics, beats and vocals. After being holed up in the studio for the past year in a creative bubble, it was time to start giving the music wings and start releasing it


 

The Wildwoods

Nebraska natives, The Wildwoods, bring a pioneering sound to Americana Roots Music. Their heartwarming lyrics and vocals are wrapped in a style of music that is like no other. With influences from old time country masters and today’s Indie/Folk sound, The Wildwood’s nostalgic melodies captivate people of all ages.

Andrew Stellman managing editor from Hear Nebraska wrote “There are perhaps few Nebraska acts that represent a merger of past and present quite like The Wildwoods, and if it’s taken you this long to notice, take the opening track of its new album Sweet Nostalgia. The young songwriting tandem of Chloe Pinkman and Noah Gose harmonize like something out of the Depression Era, fitted with a certain weight yet warmly and triumphantly capable of lifting hearts regardless.”


Saint Alto

Saint Alto are a four piece alternative indie folk band. Only a few shows in, Saint Alto has gathered attention for 'hauntingly beautiful' songs paired with the drive of indie folk found in artists such a Ben Howard and Bon Iver. 

Like going to a church where you suspect nobody is a believer but all are in good voice (and the organ has been switched for a nord). These hymns are broken but beautiful all the same. If Vangellis scored a Ray Lamontagne gig it might sound like this. Guitar, vocals, harmonies, drums and claps are offset with synths, atmospheric swells and bass that rattles the rib cage. Lyrically addressing human flaws, love, depression, mind games and the 'oddness' of modernity, the music is shot through with hope; soaring synths, group harmonies and an impassioned lead vocal described as 'maybe the best unsigned vocal in the country'. Songs like Manifesto for Suburbia have all the drive, hope and resistance of early Arcade Fire and are offset against songs like Tell Me Something, a broken electronic folk love song with a 'heartbreakingly pretty, dark and beautiful vocal'.

The Rocky Burning Band

Rocky Burning is alive with ambition. This is a point made readily apparent every time he takes the stage. Rocky has come to his current state of being by traversing a gamut of rock and roll pitfalls and coming out the other side unscathed. He cut his teeth fronting the psychedelic hard rock band "amongst the monks" for several years as they churned out their freshman and sophomore records. They recorded in New York City and toured around eastern U.S. Now Rocky has moved upward and onward recording his 5 song EP "drinking champagne in public" which he has released under his own name. This work is definitively anthemic blues rock taken to the nth degree. It's a classic revival blended with some mod tones and lyrics. The endless hooks attack like ebola and are nearly as difficult to get away from. Listen to the record, watch Rocky perform and your inner rock 'n' roll addict will thank you.


The Actual Situation

The Actual Situation is an original four piece Rock band from New Port Richey, Florida, with aspirations to entertain everywhere and everyone they can, hopefully both in and outside the Sunshine State. The band includes: Don Alexander (on lead guitar and vocals), Ash Spillius (on rhythm Guitar and lead vocals), Christina Gallardo (on bass) and Jesse Daw (on drums). Don graduated MIRA SPC with an AS in audio engineering, and Ash is in school at MIRA SPC for composition and has professionally recorded for various professional YouTube channels. This is Christina's first experience in a band (we’ve been teaching her for about a year and a half!), and Jesse is almost done with the production track of the MIRA program and specializes in electronica sounds as well as running live sound for venues in St. Petersburg, FL such as The Hideaway. He has been drumming with The Actual Situation for 6 months and is fitting in great!


Crow Mother

Crow Mother is rock band from Riga (Latvia) whose music is based on classic rock from the golden age of music in 70s but with some refreshing touch of progressive and psychedelic rock music.

Formed in March 2012 band joins together musicians who has been friends through numerous different bands for long time before joining their forces and inspiration under the name of Crow Mother.

Shortly after forming in 2012 band kicked off with recording their first two singles called Killing the Love and Sugar, Blood & Wine. First two records were more like experiment for band to find its own sound that became more individual in their next two singles – Winterland and Smile Like You Care. Crow Mother quickly claimed its place on local club stages and played at some of the largest music festivals in Baltics.


The Amber Bugs

Like the single malts that warm our throats some things just have to be stowed away in a barrel or encased in the sap of an ancient forest's tree before they can have their fleeting moment of glory. Having played together in other bands for close to a decade in 2015 Ben, Jon and Teresa formed The Amber Bugs in a dirty London railway arch. Songs aren't quite sung, they are ripped from a throat that can't get them out any other way. Instruments are hit hard and stories are told with honesty and passion.


Dirty Faction

A new wave of innovation, Dirty Faction blend EDM and heavy rock into a new, melodic fashion with catchy hooks without compromising intensity behind the music and lead the next generation of musicians to come. The band has been described as a mix of bands such as Metallica and Avenged Sevenfold with a strong electronic presence with sounds similar to deadmau5, Eric Prydz and Above & Beyond. The trio is formed of Roman on vocals, Lapush on guitar and Doug on drums. Dirty Faction’s philosophy is to bring people from all backgrounds together through the energy of the music and inspire the people brought together through the live experience Dirty Faction invite everyone to be a part of.

The Ville
The Ville is one of the freshest live bands on the music scene.  Their music is exciting, enticing and leaves you wanting more.  They are a party in a box.  They cover all of the best music from the 90's forward including hip hop, pop, rock and country.  Their originals are fresh and clever in lyrics and delivery.  Their musician skills are outstanding and they never leave their crowd wondering what is happening because they are entertainers and the crowd is a part of their journey each night.  They are young, hip and pleasing to the eyes and ears.  They all have extensive resumes in their music careers with experiences with other acts and when they came together one night to jam they realized that it was the first night of many for the band.   You never know what you are going to get but one thing is for sure you will always have a great time and you will never forget The Ville!

Radiofix
Radiofix released their original studio album "Already Gone" standing behind great song writing, instrumentation, and flat out rock and roll. Radiofix sticks to the basics of being original, playing their asses off, and writing from the heart. Each song a story in itself, Radiofix prides themselves on giving the audience something they want to hear live, and making records you want to listen to over and over.
The release of "Already Gone" marks a turning point for the band, adding Ben Thurston on bass guitar and Jorge Gutierrez Jr. on drums, both bringing their originality and separate influences to produce a hard hitting rock rhythm section.
"Already Gone" is Daniel Martin's take on finding yourself, leaving that person behind, and digging as deep as you can to find something bigger than yourself.

FlowState
FlowState is a Rock band from Jacksonville Beach, Florida. Their sound is a hard-rocking take on 90's grunge with influences from Nirvana and Alice in Chains to Foo Fighters and Puddle of Mudd.

The Ultraviolet
A four-piece band who pride themselves in playing huge, tight and energetic shows with a sound that can most accurately be described as Alternative Rock with a dash of Pop-Punk.
Over the course of 2016, The Ultraviolet have had success with the release of their debut music video 'Wake Up Dead' which resulted in interviews, airplay and live sessions on BBC Introducing shows. This was also accompanied by a UK tour and a bunch of festival shows around the Country, including Mudfest with Scouting For Girls and Goldie Looking Chain. Since 2017, the band have released their EP 'The Tales Of Our Youth' receiving praise from the likes of BBC introducing which resulted in another UK tour including a massive sold out hometown show. Their vigorous touring schedule has also recently seen the band play 2Q Festival Lincoln where they shared the bill with acts such as Circa Waves, Pulled Apart By Horses and Arcane Roots.

Touch the Buffalo
We are an Indie Grunge band based out of Arlington, VA. We began in 2016 with just a uke and some original songs. We've gone from singer/songwriter type music to an Indie Grunge band with a really unique sound. Take a listen to our debut EP and hear for yourself! While you're at it, subscribe to our website for updates and blog releases! We're in the habit of promoting other local artists because we simply love the DC music scene! We know you will too!

Skyeline
Alternative band from Ocean County, NJ. Pulling influences from indie and pop acts like The Killers and Death Cab For Cutie, but not afraid experiment with the heavier side of things like Deftones and Failure, Skyeline's sound is unique and captivating. The band was formed in the winter of 2015 by guitarist Brandon Cruz and bassist Jack Rose who met while attending the audio recording course at Ocean County Vocational Technical School. They soon met vocal major Brittany Byrne from the Performing Arts Academy and instantly clicked. Skyeline intends to experiment with letting different genres collide while retaining an honest and human element to songwriting all while providing an entertaining live show.

GAINSTRIVE

OUR MUSIC IS AN INTERESTING BLEND OF MANY DIFFERENT INFLUENCES WITH ROOTS STEMMING FROM ROCK, PUNK, ALTERNATIVE, AND METAL. YOU MIGHT PICK UP ON A PUNCHY PUNK GROOVE, HOLDING UP A THICK WALL OF CHUNKY POWER CHORDS. YOU MAY HEAR A HEADBANGING BREAKDOWN, BURIED UNDER A HAUNTING VOCAL MELODY AND CATCHY HARMONIES. THE BOTTOM LINE IS SIMPLE: IF YOU LIKE HIGH ENERGY RIFFING, FLOWING MELODIC LEADS, AND CATCHY VOCAL MELODIES, THIS BAND IS FOR YOU! OUR SONGS DEFINITELY HAVE A CLEAR AND COHESIVE STYLE, BUT EACH OF THEM ARE WRITTEN WITH A UNIQUE SOUND AND FEELING IN MIND. WHETER IT'S THE DARK ATMOSPHERIC APPROACH WE CREATE IN "TRUTH IN DEMISE" OR THE GRUNGY ALT TEXTURE FLESHED OUT IN "LEFT BEHIND", WE WANT TO GIVE THE LISTENER A SENSE OF IMMERSION.

Auramancer
Blaede is a Belgian musician, singer and songwriter. Along with some childhood friends, he forms the alternative rock band Auramancer in 2000, performs a few gigs, and records a 4 track demo before putting the band on hold in 2005.
In 2007, searching for a more aggressive yet groovy rock style, he forms the stoner rock band the1984, influenced by Alice in Chains, Down and Silverchair. Their first album, 'Room 101', is written, recorded and produced by Blaede at studio Sainte-Marthe in Paris. 'Room 101' is well received by critics and is the catalyst for the1984’s success in playing shows and performing strongly in music competitions all over Belgium.

Science of the Lamps
Quite appropriately ‘Science of the Lamps’ was dreamt up by Norwegian Liverpool musician Kaya in an off the beaten track restaurant in the fairytale darkness of the city of Prague on a dark December night. Mainly because of a misheard movie title, and an abnormal love for puns.
A band perfect for festivals and encompassing all that is music, storytelling, art, creative flair, melancholy and silliness - framed in catchy songs, lyrical gems and outstanding musicianship from the quirky band. Their inspiration comes from vaudeville, visual art, early Hollywood movie scores, Nordicana, wine, flamenco, trip-hop, music boxes, Paris and whiskey bars.

Fresh Breath
Fresh Breath consists of husband and wife Josh and Katie Pascoe. The focus is creating music that makes you move, makes you groove and makes something different happen in your ears. With high energy and intensely emotional live performances it’s obvious they have a hell of a lot of fun doing it.

What a lovely Saturday boys and girls!

Enjoy this weekend with fresh bands and solo artists...

 

 

Oh!Kelly

Oh!Kelly is energetic, layered, and visceral.

The brain-child of Jared O'Kelley (VOX), Oh!Kelly composes American rock with the joys of Pop, the melancholy of Blues, and the empowerment of Punk into a self-proclaimed "identity crisis" that can bounce between Top-40 hooks and deep track ALT/indie broods like a sushi sampler served with french fries. Oh!Kelly's live show evokes a wide range of emotions that connect audiences of all ages, as nostalgic flare for 90's and early 00's headbang along in tracks like "History...Repeating" and "Nepotism", and progressive vibes fit the modern bill with "Howling at the Moon". This gumbo mashup of sub-genres is made possible by all-star musicians, seasoned respectively in their own backgrounds, ranging from Metal and Lo-fi to Top-40 and Gospel.


Joel DaSilva

Delving back deeply into his Chicago Blues and Americana roots, DaSilva has emerged with some truly visceral new material, the culmination of months of soul searching, hard living and late night driving. The result? “Everywhere From Here”, Featuring the single “SHAKE!” released in July, 2017. ‘SHAKE!’ is the first single from DaSilva’s forthcoming new album entitled “Everywhere From Here” to be released in September 2017. Produced at nationally renowned TrunNoyz Studios in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, ‘SHAKE!’ captures the essence of Joel’s combustible new blues sound which combines elements of lo fi garage blues with a driving roots beat.


A Wild Frontier

A Wild Frontier was started in the Spring of 2016 by former members of The Status, Ben Grant and Mike Felker. Even prior to The Status’ 2008 Doghouse records release (So This Is Progress), Ben and Mike had been writing together for 5 years. With hundreds of songs and unused demos since then to choose from, they began recording A Wild Frontier’s debut record in March of 2016. “Make It Count” was released on April 4th, 2017 and is available at all digital retail stores and is available on CD from the bands website .


Flashpoint

In 2010, Tim Deschaine, former front man and guitarist for Los Angeles based band Nimbus, moved to Augusta, KS to start a family. After a short break, Tim arose from the ashes of the Nimbus project, to continue his passion for songwriting. He then threw himself headfirst into the Wichita music scene. 
After weeks of searching for band members, in 2014, Tim called upon close friend and guitarist, Josh Gilbert, to join the ranks and bring his love of playing to the foreground. Through Josh came Flashpoint's first drummer whom brought the next core member and bassist Joshua Naval. Joshua's diverse knowledge of rhythm and understanding of structure, made him a perfect match for the group. With two years under Flashpoint's belt, a time came where the original drummer decided to part ways. Through friends and neighbors of the group, came Flashpoint's drummer Ammon Ohlson. Ammon, a self taught drummer and madman, was the missing element the band needed.


The Barrbarians

In under two years, The BarrBarians went from blasting Misfits songs in the van on the way to their gigs, to opening up for former Misfits’ lead singer, Michale Graves. This independent rock band from the windy shores of Asbury Park, NJ are taking their motivation and love of music and cultivating a following for their raw, head-banging sound. Their influences — bands like Green Day, Nirvana, Black Sabbath, Elvis, the Misfits (of course), and more — follow that same rough, but melodic pathway. Molding their sound and forming a fan base has been what these five rockers have been working toward, and it seems to be paying off.

Son of Prey

Son of Prey plays alternative rock based on powerful themes, driven by strong vocals and numerous guitars performed as modern ”wall of sound”.

 

Lilah Burger

Lilah Burger was born on July 7th, 1999 in Los Angeles, California. At the age of five, Lilah began taking piano lessons, and she continued to do so until age ten. At age fifteen, Lilah released her first official song, "The Good Guy." Upon the day "The Good Guy" came out, Lilah released many other singles like jazzy-rebellious "Oh, Darling" and nostalgic "Flicker Back To You."  In June of 2017, Lilah's debut album 'Carnival' was released. Heavily influenced by Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and Harley Quinn and The Joker's love affair in Suicide Squad, 'Carnival' tells a tale of heartbreak and recovery. The title track, "Carnival," speaks of a love like a puppet show. "My life at the time of creating this album was a carnival in itself. I was going through so much at once; it was quite overwhelming. That's when the inspiration kicked in," Lilah says. "She's Not Real" cries out feelings of abandonment, while "Know-It-All" talks of a judgmental friend. "Incorporating Godinto my music is very important to me," Lilah states.

 

 

Olivia Henry

Olivia Henry grew up in Los Angeles, singing and writing poems. At an early age, she began classical vocal training with a Belgian Opera singer, and furthered her training in jazz, contemporary, and musical.

Brian Jones Rock'n'Roll Revival

The Brian Jones Rock’n’Roll Revival inspires the timeless boogie of soul-driven blues-based Rock’n’Roll. This music will inspire your SPIRIT, and we uplift your SOUL…… So turn it up!

In July 2016, we released our first album of original rock & roll music “A Real Good Time.”  The Album is anchored in hard driving blues, big riffs, sexy hooks, and plenty of swagger.  The EP features several all-star guest players, on piano, guitars and harmonica.  You can listen to some of the songs here on the website.

QOK

QOK is an alternative pop rock band from Northern Virginia.  The band writes and performs original music that blends styles such as pop, rock, reggae, jazz, blues, latin, caribbean, and soul. QOK enjoys being involved in the community and raising awareness of topics close to their hearts. The band currently works with local organizations such as USA Cares and FishingCommunity.org who represent the military community and advocate for mental health awareness, both topics which inspired their original song “Unknown Soldier”. In the past they have shared their music and talents with Loudoun County Public Schools to support suicide prevention. As they write new music and prepare for a 2018 tour, QOK hopes to keep building relationships that promote music influenced by their community.

Scream for me Slingers...

It's F... Friday!!

Great music for your weekend boys and girls..Check them out!

 

Mikalyn Hay

Mikalyn is a unique artist, old soul and world weary and yet so young and fresh. She comes at every song with a deep sense of herself as an artist with an alternative view of what is cool and classic in the same breath. Her haunting voice and melodies and harmonies are instinctive and Mikalyn operates at a speed and capacity at a level much beyond her young age.  Mikalyn combines this natural ability with relentless learning and is constantly seeking to collaborate and study from the best.  Already a seasoned performer, she spends weekend jamming at open mics accompanying herself on the keys doing originals and covers ranging from Radiohead  to Cohen.


White Label Analog

The result is an eclectic group of songs that seems to pull as much from pop rock traditions like The Killers as they do from indie bands like Two Door Cinema Club and Modest Mouse. Songs like “Rainmaker” retain infectious melodies while simmering with big rock bombast. In an era of convergence between indie rock and pop music, White Label Analog is the daring alliance between the two. Call it indie rock for the poptimist generation.
White Label Analog is not worried about trying to fit in to any genre labels or follow any trends in music. “Trying to copy or chase what's already happening is like chasing a moving target,” Didear says. “We just want to create honest music that is fun, engaging, but still has a little attitude.”


Kris Angelis

Kris Angelis has been living musically her whole life. “My mom says I’ve been singing since before I could talk. I would sing melodies when I didn’t actually know words.” Growing up on a farm in Florida, Angelis spent her childhood playing, running around the farm, and making up songs with her twin sister. They composed their first song at the age of three -- and it lives on now, interwoven into one of Kris’s more recent works.

Menage

The Ferreira siblings spent there whole childhood travelling between Toronto Canada, and Small town Portugal where their heritage and much of their family still lived. Through being divided between Canadian, indoor boredom, and European culture, the common thread that was present on both sides of the globe, was the influence of the music that they were exposed to.
The household was soon filled with a drum set, a keyboard, and some traditional portuguese guitars. As quite common, the kids grew apart, Bela, recording piano based song ideas, keeping to herself, performing wherever she could . From various new york city open mics to touring in Canada.
Brothers Gabriel and Basilio kicked around Toronto, Los Angeles, started bands, fought, would self destruct, and do it again.


Alissa Musto

Being the daughter of a real "piano man", Alissa’s interest in performing began at four years old when she begged her father, Billy Musto, to go to work with him. They made a deal---if she learned to play the piano, she could come. Less than a year later and equipped with a wooden block to reach the pedals, Alissa won her first piano competition performing Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata.

Jason Sees Band

It sharply contradict Jason's usual themes of solace and introspection. Troubadour roots be dammed, Jason rocks here and Seattle's indie music community is finally showing signs of coming to life.

"I tried to lighten up the conceptualization. I picked up my 335 and haven't put it down" Jason says, as we catch up back stage before a show at High Dive, Seattle, WA. "These are all contributing factors to this new direction of music. But I tried to hold on to my roots while progressing, in the middle of some of the more light hearted songs you will still here my usual rhetorical style for those that care to listen."

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.

The Brothers Footman

Every once in a great while the stars align to bring together an abundance of talent, dedication, and commitment to excellence; such is the case with Dikembe, Gerald, Micah, and Joshua Footman. Their breakout hit Clear Country Sky seems to have struck the right chords and challenges musical barriers that dictate they be boxed into a particular sound or genre of music.  From the initial rifts of the acoustic guitar you get the sense that Country Sky will be an instant classic.

They all have worked in various musical projects and share a common love for music from the 70's (Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, PFM, Banco di Mutuo Soccorso, Area,...). They have also been influenced by grunge, pop, latin, funk, jazz, heavy metal. The clash and melt of all these musical influences gave birth to Le Folli Arie's unique style.
The process of making the band sound whole and unique required 2 years of labor-intensive work..
Once you listen throughout the album you can perceive the binding that gathers the 13 tracks together. 
The listener is able to experience many extremely different atmospheres and emotional episodes and to appreciate a deep sense of coherence throughout the entire listening experience.
That's why defining Le Folli Arie's style is not a simple task: it could be prog music dressed as pop or the exact opposite.

Wojo

Rooted in alternative rock, dipped in coffee-shop acoustic, a dash of grunge, hints of blues with a smooth melodic finish, Wojo’s music explores progressive new territory of his songwriting, incorporating elements of dance music, pop, metal, and psychedelia. Drawing from over a decade of life experience, his introspective lyrics cover topics ranging from failed relationships and codependence to personal and artistic growth under constraints of corporate culture. Despite the abundance of heavy subject matter, an optimistic Wojo playfully pokes fun at his peers for taking themselves too seriously, proving always to be the jester.

Mëttle

Remember the 90’s? When not being cool was cool? When even though a band fell in the same genre as another they didn’t sound the same -Alice in Chains didn’t sound like Pearl Jam and Nirvana didn’t sound like Soundgarden? We’re a band who just wants to be us. We’re influenced by music; not Metal, Country, Alt-rock, Trip-Hop, Mariachi, etc. I don’t know about you, but when was the last time you were in the same mood for ten years straight? That’s what I thought. Just like our emotions change so should our music. We could never be content playing just one style of music.

Formed in 2016, for no other reason than we wanted to have fun, but then something changed. We decided we wanted to try to give back to world what our favorite artists have given to us. Even if we never accomplish that goal, hell, it’s worth a shot right?

We are Mettle, and this what we’re made of.

Oh yeah… Megan Rice on Vocals, Scott Gossett on Guitar, Anthony Gossett on Bass, and Raul Ochoa on the drums.

Mossom

MOSSOM is a high energy indie rock duo made in Cleveland, Ohio. The fearless drum and bass two-piece broke onto the scene in 2016 with the release of their fiercely unique debut EP, produced by multi-platinum artist and producer, Michael Seifert.

It’s rare to find an act of this scale with such an epic live footprint. Described as “an alternative rock experience with an amazingly original sound,” by the Fresh Committee – MOSSOM puts a “harder, heavier spin on the raw rock revitalized by the likes of the White Stripes and the Black Keys,” says Indie U Magazine.

As craftsmen, they bring a refreshing style of storytelling, musicianship and true presence to the stage. In the tradition of groundbreaking rock duos like the UK’s Royal Blood, MOSSOM delivers a distinct vibe that’s been compared to Cage the Elephant, Primus and the Kooks.

As the band’s lyricist, Moss’ arresting vocals power hopeful urgency, mixing the sarcasm of David Byrne with Henry Rollins directness dystopia and frayed folklore. Replete with adventurous bass playing reminiscent of Geddy Lee and Mike Watt – Moss’ high energy bass work drives harder with every turn.

The band’s power source? Russ Herbert’s high octane percussion. The former minor league pitcher brings an undeniable athleticism and skill to his drumming. A fanboy of The Police’s Copeland and Dave Matthews Band’s Beauford – Herbert’s improvisational style is an unstoppable force.

Coolcleveland.com says, “Call it ear-splitting, mind-blowing, sternum-rattling or earth-shaking. Just don’t think it’s like anything you’ve heard (or seen) before.”

She released her first full-length album, “Kindling,” in 2016. “Kindling” is a thirteen-song record based on the discovery of self and soul, especially in the torrents of heartbreak. Later that same year, she released a four-song ukulele-based EP, “Aria,” which gave a cheery, summery vibe and a light-hearted look at young love. In January 2017, she released her first independent EP, “Enough.” The record was a seven-song reflection on the deep loss of love and its effect on self-worth. It was written, recorded, and mixed independently as a labor of love, and Mandy hopes it can be a place of understanding, and even comfort, to the listener as much as it was for her in the creation. She also has released multiple singles such as “Just For Now,” “Addicted,” “Impossible Us,” and more. In addition, Mandy has produced music with her previous bands Highland (2014-2015) and A.M. (2016 - 2017). Her music can be found on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp, Noisetrade, Soundcloud, ReverbNation, and more. She released her first professionally-recorded EP, Now & Then, on December 1, 2017.



When you can't find the words to say and it's hard to make it through another day...

Just Listen to these bands and artists...

 

The Crowning

Nobody understands momentum quite like The Crowning. After storming the scene in the Fall of 2017 with their debut EP, the Pennsylvania quartet has already begun to establish themselves as a regional powerhouse with their unique take on the altrock/grunge sound. In a very short period they have amassed over 45,000 plays on Soundcloud, opened up for several major national touring acts, received airplay from over 100 indie and college radio stations, and have been featured on the cover of The Aquarian Weekly.

Though the group has gained significant traction from the start, the story of The Crowning goes back more than a decade, and it's those formative years that serve as the nexus of their creativity.

 

 

Mad Luck

Andi Ramser (singer, songwriter) and Sean Ewing (guitarist, producer) stir up a wide range of disparate influences without making the water so muddy that they miss the point. The result is a salty sweet rush of pure pop rock, careening back and forth between mellow and sunny to pounding slash and burn!


Neel Dani

Artist. Producer. Songwriter. Vocalist. Multi-instrumentalist. A truly independent musician who wears many hats, Neel Dani does it all, and does it very well. Following in the footsteps of icons like the late and great Prince, Neel’s debut EP “Better Late Than Never” was produced, composed, arranged and performed entirely by Neel, and recorded and mixed by L. Stu Young, engineer to the likes of Prince himself. Writing, singing and playing all the instruments (over 15) featured on the EP's three songs, everything you hear is Neel, and everything you hear is real. From guitars, bass, drums and keyboards to an arsenal of instruments from all over the world, Neel even used a toaster oven on the song “How Do You Like Me Now”, giving new meaning to the term "hot track".


Tandem Unicycle

This is this groups second time finding a singer through craigslist. Proving craigstlist is right, once again, Mark Rosenberg takes lead on Tandem Unicycle. With all but Mark hailing from Orange County (Mark representing the East Coast), we make music that you possibly might be into a little. Taking the wide range of influences of all the different members, we make some sort of rock music.


Grand Tradition

Priding themselves on their eclectic songs, groove based rhythms and jazz styled chord progressions, Grand Tradition are inspired by the likes of Steely Dan and Stevie Wonder but take their contemporary pop edge from Foster The People, Michael Jackson and Phoenix to name but a few.

A rough pre-band demo was released last year created by frontman Anthony and friends which unexpectedly received plays from BBC Introducing, Nation radio, Amazing radio and others. 

A full 6 piece band was formed and this year they released their 1st 5 track e.p. produced and recorded by Nick Brine (Teenage Fanclub, The Darkness) every song went on to be played by BBC introducing and they are looking forward to a year of gigging and playing festivals, sharing the same line up as Elbow, Madness, Field Music and Franz Ferinand, while working on their new 5 track EP.

Eclectic, groove driven, indie, jazzy pop music from Cardiff.  



The Getbye

"Hey, Hey Oh" is what crowds frequently chant as they clap their hands to this Gypsy band. Made up of Koal, Davy, Skitch and Tucker, The Getbye is quickly becoming one of the most talked about groups in their native Orlando, Florida. From one man simultaneously playing accordions, drums and trumpets at the same time, to the others filling on bongos, bass and guitar, The Getbye is certainly a spectacle to be seen, and one that's hard to miss. Their whirlwind of sound, and love, has carried them from The Florida Music Festival, Westward to Backwoods Music Fest, and North to Indiana's Good People Good Times Festival along with a host of other gypsy forest fests.


Strangely Alright

Strangely Alright is a quirky,colorful band of brothers that create rock sprinkled with some electronics and a lyrical message to be who you are and that love is the answer. The peace and love vibe along with some crunchy guitars and pretty harmonies give a sound of that has, as Rockford Rowley from The Weekly Volcano says, “an undeniable emotional appeal. Ringing, triumphant chords and lyrics that allude to conquered tribulations immediately make the music relatable to everyone." And time can have a tricky way of beating people down and telling them to forget who they wanted to be and who they are. The fact that some members of the strangely clan are in recovery brings to mind the reality that people can find what was once lost.


John Guidroz

Louisiana native John Guidroz is a singer/songwriter that blends elements of folk, pop, rock and other genres to create a sound that is truly his own.

John began playing solo acoustic shows in 2004. Over several years, he built a reputation as a solid live performer, willing to play songs from a variety of artists and genres. However, audiences would have to wait for any glimpse of original material.

That all changed in 2012 when John released his first solo album, Yesterday’s News. Produced by Matthew Moss and mixed by Michael James, the eight songs showcase John’s powerful vocal range, a keen sense of melody and clever lyrics. The songs are reminiscent of artists like Pete Yorn, David Gray and John Mayer.

John continues to perform regularly at live venues and has built up more than a decade of experience along the way. Whether performing solo or with a full band, audiences are sure to be entertained by his blend of humor, storytelling and well-crafted songs.


NATALISE + THE SUNSET RUN

Natalise’s musical and artistic journey has taken a variety of adventurous paths. Beginning with piano lessons at the age of three, dance at seven, singing in the church choir at eight, she then auditioned and began training at the renown San Francisco Conservatory of Music at age 11, where she began her journey to become an accomplished classically trained pianist and vocalist. Natalise, however, soon found greatest solace and inspiration in writing her own songs on the piano.
