Cultural Vultures 

Life will eventually bring us all to the point of opposition. We then forge ourselves awake in the envy of an entire generation. Each of us will enquire our own fearful disillusionment, with the purpose being lost along with the purity of love. In its entropy we then find the quintessence of a life filled with passion. The avarice of our society that keeps us hidden from our own true potential. Love your life and live it the only way you know how, to the point where it scares you. Find your passions and exploit them, but be mindful of each other. The music is heartbreak, not just from love and relationships, but when life stops giving you things and starts taking them away. The struggles of humans, and the relationships we have with nature, religion, love and most of all each other. It is up to each of us to invent our own beautiful life, to find our passions with a voracious intensity. Find the confidence in yourself to dream, and find the peace that will set us all free.

Gary Lazer Eyes

Although currently based out of Orlando, Gary Lazer Eyes was founded by three Melbourne, FL natives. Since their not-so-serious formation in 2015, this eclectic band has grown in sound and reach. After being voted Orlando’s “Best Rock Act” in Best of Orlando 2016, GLE released High On Lies. On this EP, they explore a more alternative territory, while still managing to reflect their reggae & blues rock roots.

To support the release of this project, Gary Lazer Eyes embarked on a cross country, DIY tour. Upon returning home and playing a few “welcome back to Florida” shows, the boys received a warm reception (literally- Florida boys should stay in FL during the winter). Since then, the consistent regional touring and release of new content hasn’t stopped, quickly earning GLE a reputation in the Central FL community and beyond.

For Gary Lazer Eyes, community is an essential part of their journey. The threesome (now five) solidified while collaborating on Do-It-Yourself events featuring live music, local visual artists, and fashion vendors/brands. It was out of these collaborations that GLE was born. Leaning on the idea that music is an interdependent relationship (i.e. a song is not done until some one else hears it), the goal of their musical endeavors is not simply to create, but to connect with the people around them. All this, while still managing to have an awesome time – embracing debauchery.

Andrea Leigh Mathews

Three Way Street is a Folk/Indie/Rock band based out of West Michigan. Their love of high energy live performance has earned them a loyal following in the short time they have worked together. Lead by Andrea Mathews’ powerful vocals, the driving rhythm section of Bradley Rose and Jeffrey Baldus sets the dancers in motion to the sweet melodies of Chris Brock’s lead guitar. This band prides itself on not being just another bar band, blending a unique take on classic folk and contemporary covers with original material that keeps audiences entertained and surprised.

Bree And The Whatevers

Brooklyn based Bree And The Whatevers is a project spawned from the songwriting and musical vision of legally blind powerhouse vocalist Bree Klauser. The core of this collaboration is Bree and her partner Dan Kessler (co writer and multi instrumentalist). Their soulful vibe, paired with a cabaret aesthetic, create a high energy cathartic entertainment experience and in general a sexy fun time!

Bree And The Whatevers' Debut music video "Homewrecker" the title track of the forthcoming EP, was released in December 2016.

Lee Perreira

Singer-Songwriter-Guitarist Lee Perreira combines classic blues riffs with a soulful textured vocal style leaving his audience instantly captured.

The music of Lee Perreira finds its life in the continuous and passionate pursuit of musical excellence, breathing that passion into the soul of his audience.

The Human Circuit

On, Saturday, June 17th, 2017, The Human Circuit self-released, "Electric City" (12 Track LP) on the outside stage at Cheer Up Charlies in Austin, Texas. Since then, The Human Circuit has gained national radio support, even locally as a KUTX Studio 1A Artist, and currently The Human Circuit's third album, "Electric City" is receiving airplay coast-to-coast and has independently charted Top 200 (#95) on the North American College and Community charts.

The Nearly Deads

Led by the inimitable vocalist Theresa Jeane along with Steven Tobi (guitar), Kevin Koelsch (bass), Javier Garza Jr. (guitar) and Josh Perrone (drums), The Nearly Deads are one of the hottest, rising rock bands to come out of Nashville. The band became a viral sensation with their break out, zombie infused music video for the single "Never Look Back"; as a result, their fans dubbed themselves "Zombies", creating The Nearly Deads #ZombieNation. The band’s amalgam of powerful pop vocals and aggressive alternative rock music combined with their love of all things geek and messages of positivity and empowerment creates a truly unique style that’s garnering attention from media and fans around the world.

The band is currently gaining massive traction with their smash hit song “My Evil Ways.”

To date, Coopertheband has released three albums - Venture (2010), Kings EP (2012), and most recently, Kingdoms (2017) - now available everywhere.

 

Scott Evans

Scott Evans has come back from the dead. Twice. Not figuratively. He was literally medically dead twice before the age of 22. Certain that music is what he is meant to do, after two times dancing through the space between life and death, there are few who will doubt this sense of purpose. It is also no surprise that one who has been so close to death makes music that is so vigorously, pleadingly resolute about living life while we have it. Evans has this urgency of life latent in his work, and telegraphs this message with a sound akin to a meld of Ryan Adams, Pink Floyd, and Tom Petty.

To relay the significance of his art, and life itself, Evans has teamed with Grammy-winning producer Noel Golden (who has worked with Matchbox Twenty, Willie Nelson, Sister Hazel, Edwin McCain, and others) to produce the 8-song EP, CIVILIZED, available at Evans' live shows and special appearances.

WD-HAN

WD-HAN is an alternative indie rock band based in Tampa Bay, Florida. The band took its original form with Cal Henry on guitar, jamming and writing with high school friends. In need of a name, WD-HAN (“We Don’t Have A Name”) was considered and loved instantly.

Over the following years as the band continued to write new music and play bigger and better gigs they started to build a following. With the addition of Lea Campbell on drums and Spencer Barnes as the band’s front man, they developed their own kind of pop rock sound heavily influenced by a love of classic rock and blues.

The Quixote Project

We are a neo-roots music outfit. From Rock to Rockabilly, Bluegrass to Blues we like to pull from traditional genres to blur the fine lines of modern music. "Frontman Jeff Selby and a revolving cast of musicians have distilled the multi-genre sounds of a beachfront music festival into a remarkably cohesive live set, with hints of bluegrass, folk, and rock in a style that would be pigeonholed as “jam” if the songwriting wasn’t so explicitly pop-oriented" says Dave Fox of MUSIC WITHOUT LABELS.

Future Thieves

Young musicians come to Nashville to chicken-pick and twang. They come to sing about trucks, girls and girls in trucks. Not so with Future Thieves. They came to rock. You hear it in the first seconds of the first track of their first album. Horizon Line, available now on all major digital media, kicks off with a punchy drum intro. Then the band comes in: a quiet verse with urgent lead vocals, crashing guitar chords and thundering bass licks power into the chorus and then it ends suddenly, leaving listeners exhilarated and hungry for more.

Nick Brodeur

Nicholas "Nick" John Brodeur has musical passion running through his blood. His great aunt Jackie Lee broke through the UK Top Ten in 1968 with "White Horses" and sang on Jimi Hendrix's classic debut single, "Hey Joe."

Music for me is such a massive part of my life, to be honest its how I cope with what I go through, (the good, the bad & the uncertain) music is infinite and its something that can be loved by every single person the world over, so I say love music feel it, relate and share it.

Anuschka Wright

Bahamian Jazz vocalist, Anuschka Wright, has always been a performer. And thus, like many others, she got her start early on by singing often in church and school choirs. As a child she was a member of The Bahamas National Children’s Choir and took advantage of the opportunity by travelling with the group to exciting cities like Moscow and New York while still in primary school. She considers herself blessed to have had so many varying experiences as a young girl.

 

Talia Denis

As a teen, Talia’s approach to music is definitely not what you would expect. Her music is on the edgier side of Pop Rock, featuring real instrumentation and catchy hooks, all while lyrically offering a positive slant on life.

Talia already has substantial performing and touring experience. She has played with X Factor’s Fifth Harmony.

Lisa Panagos

Mystical Greek Goddesses were alluring forms of aesthetic beauty moved by the muses to recite inspirational poetry or sing in pure golden tones that reflected the essence of sound. In a reminiscent gleam of these mystical characters of ancient times we find LISA PANAGOS reflecting golden tones in her music. Her last name, Panagos, is derived from the Greek word PAN, who is the God of music. With a name like that, no wonder Lisa has followed a career in music. Already a successful actress and dancer, Lisa is a vibrant recording artist and songwriter, whose music evokes a sleek sensuality.

Jessi Campo

Jessi Campo’s distinctive and memorable voice plus glamorous attire compliment her heartfelt performances and make her an incredible entertainer with a radiant personality who captures all audiences. Often compared to Natalie Cole and Etta James in her vocal style, she is an indisputably exceptional talent, and therefore she has shared stages with Michael McDonald, Neil Sedaka, Beach Boys and other famous artists.

Brendan Pugh

Formed in early 2011, each member had already been a part of the scene for over a decade, sharing the stage with acts such as Fastball, Bowling for Soup, Throw the Fight, and other established artists. Their focus from the beginning was on a live show that performed as strongly as their album.

He is also currently preparing to release his next album and official mixtape with Coast2Coast Mixtapes.

Better Than Grey

We’re called Better Than Grey and we’re a pop/punk band from Sofia, Bulgaria. We were established in the beginning of 2010  by our vocal Justin Case, Eddie (Bass) and FranX (Guitar) after our previous band split up. We searched for new members for few months and found Fiorelo (Guitar) and Steve (Drums). With this line up we recorded our debut album “No Way Back” in Italy in June 2011. Afterwards in September Steve went to study drums in Netherlands for four years, so we had to find another drummer. Few months later MonX came along and so this is our current lineup.

Neil Taylor

As a teenager, he played in local bands before joining "Neon", featuring Curt Smith (Tears For Fears), Pete Byrne (Naked Eyes) and Rob Fisher (Climie/Fisher).

Mrs. Hips

Mrs. Hips is a band from the Netherlands with the vocalist Simone Roerade and a trio behind her that surveyed most genres in every which way but found themselves in a smooth, jazzy, soulful approach of playing behind Simone. She’s an exciting lady who used to be the lead-singer of world renown Alto Saxofonist Candy Dulfer but had her hits with her own band “Hips“ in the 90ties with even a nr. 1 hit in Spain. Now we see an experienced unit, Jazzy keys with a streetwise rhythm section, nevertheless with the power of a full soulband, refined and dynamic.

Lead singer and guitarist for the punk rock and roll band Reno Divorce, Brent Loveday puts his charm and storytelling lyrics on display with an acoustic guitar. His songs invoke a bygone era while adding a snarl and a wink. Ranging from haunting to toe tapping, he conjures up music for every mood.
