Nikki Lane

Like a modern-era Wanda Jackson, Nikki Lane turns the vulnerable singer-songwriter stereotype on its ear, crafting songs that crucify ex-boyfriends and have no problem with one-night stands as long as she can bolt town right after. Her cooing-yet-brutal vocals are a perfect fit with an aching, mournful guitar. For her hotly anticipated sophomore album, released in May 2014, the Nashville songstress teamed up with Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys to produce All or Nothin'.

Cale Tyson

Cale Tyson is a singer and songwriter from Nashville, Tennessee. Born in a small town in Texas, he was raised in Fort Worth, the home of Townes Van Zandt and the place where he first heard the classic country sounds that have inspired and enriched his gentle, melancholy, and undeniably whiskey-soaked sound.

The Almanacks

Jacob Thomas Jr

Outfitted with only his acoustic guitar and his voice, Original Sin, Thomas' debut LP, is a collection of experiences. With the majority of songs being first takes, the lack of production invites the listener to pay close attention to what's being said, the stories being told, and the heartbreak being felt or dealt. Jacob never pretends to be the good guy, and his honesty, which can be unsettling at times, is ultimately revealing.

Diamond Carter

Currently based in Nashville, Tennessee, Diamond Carter began in 2012 in Southern California as the house band for the infamous LA underground club, 'The Overpass.' Their sound originated from Tuohy's attraction to the 60's revivalist groups that were sprouting out of Orange County during that period. Their stage antics were shaped by the people and stories that were part of that underground scene that summer and the band's first record, 'Pink Balloon,' released on September 19, 2012, became a snapshot glimpse into the chaotic, early-twenties mindset of the Hollywood/Silverlake scene during that brief moment.

R.LUM.R

As a Nashville newcomer, R.LUM.R (pronounced Are-Lum-Are) has had a monster year. After releasing his debut track “Show Me” in early 2015, R.LUM.R quickly infiltrated every taste making blog and feed with explosive production and spellbinding storytelling, climbing the Hype Machine and global Spotify charts. R.LUM.R’s sound is fluid and hard to pin down, but it is best described as a combination of narrative-driven lyrics over progressive alternative-rnb production. With over 1 million collective Spotify streams to date, R.LUM.R is poised to make a strong statement in 2016.

Discover R.LUM.R’s music at www.werlumr.com or find him on Twitter and Instagram.

Cardboard Kids

The Nashville rock outfit, Cardboard Kids, grew up as friends in the dense back woods of Tyler, Texas in a scene similar to "the scene that celebrates itself". They played in teenage bands together, often switching out members of each other's bands and lending talents in order to make better music with no consequences in mind except to make great music and further that idea as an example to neighboring music scenes in the bigger, saturated cities nearby.

Remedy Drive

We’ve released a concept album on freedom called Commodity.  Freedom – the cry from the depths of my heart and the theme of an entire album – to be imagined through lyric, melody and sonic landscape. We want to make a concept album on liberty, to shine a light on slavery, to protest oppression and to empower rescue. We want to add to the soundtrack of the resistance.  

Tedi & The Roosevelts 

Because of our name, many people believe that we are the reincarnate souls of the entire Roosevelt family — and they are correct. As any good historian knows, we Roosevelts enjoyed playing pop-rock in our spare time and we weren’t going to let death stop us! Our true origins were in the White House, but this time around we are a band hailing from Nashville, TN. Our sound can be described as a sultry, 1920’s-era jazz vocalist singing lead in a British invasion-style band. I guess Mr. Churchill had more influence on Franklin than we thought. We are currently recording our first EP, which will hopefully lead to a New Deal and various gigs around Nashville. 

New Vessels 

New Vessels looks to change the way the industry creates and enjoys music. In a market full of processed sounds, this funk-rock band from Nashville, TN is setting sails on a mission to deliver their message: "What you hear is what you get!". The band's raw sound, drawing its energy from each members' authentic roots, breathes life into music that will transport audiences to a whole new experience.

Policia 

United Crushers (out March 4, 2016) is POLIÇA’s third full-length release and most remarkable album to date. The band, which includes Channy Leaneagh, dual drummers, Drew Christopherson and Ben Ivascu and Chris Beirden on bass with producer Ryan Olson at the helm, collectively wrote the album in Minneapolis in the winter of 2015 during their first true break from two straight years of touring.  The new album builds on POLIÇA’s signature synthesizer and percussion-heavy sounds with more complex arrangements and a bigger, crisper hi-fi punch due to the new approach they took to writing and recording: together, all in the same room.  There's a tighter groove to these songs and a more vulnerable quality to them, especially in Leaneagh's singing. Her incredible vocal range is consistently on display throughout, beautifully raw and less electronically effected than on previous recordings.

MOTHXR

Producer Jimmy Giannopoulos (Lolawolf, Reputante) and vocalist Penn Badgley, neighborhood friends for years in New York, waited patiently for a sound to manifest beyond their bond based upon an odd pop aesthetic. Bassist Darren Will (Rathborne) was always orbiting, always an obvious partner when the time came. The three finally decided to hole up in a little Bungalow in East LA to record for eight days without anything written, without expectation. Seeking a microphone, they found in the neighborhood one-time-Brooklynite and New Zealand ex-pat Simon Oscroft, who proved to be the guitarist they weren't looking for. The spontaneous quartet recorded five songs in five days before taking a breath to see they had, in fact, started a band.

B.o.B

Of all the rap artists who emerged from Atlanta during the late 2000s, B.o.B -- who was only 17 when he signed his first major-label record deal -- was one of the most unique. His borderline eccentricity and artistic mind, belied by his music's conventional Dirty South sound, raised his stock above that of his Southern contemporaries and welcomed comparisons to OutKast (specifically that group's offbeat half, André 3000). B.o.B also chose his partners wisely, scoring a handful of Top 40 singles during 2010 by collaborating with vocalists like Rivers Cuomo, Hayley Williams, and Bruno Mars.

Scotty ATL

Until now, Scotty has been a humble force brewing within the rap scene of New Atlanta. Always laid-back and "Cool", Scotty's newest project, F.A.I.T.H. (Forever Atlanta In The Heart) burned up the streets, taking Scotty ATL from a local hustler to a nationwide budding superstar. Scotty navigates through the industry as a young boss full of nonstop hustle, integrity, a flawless live performance harkening the days of the real MC.

Tokyo Police Club

If you've ever read a comic book, watched a science fiction movie, played freeze tag, or undertaken a top-secret intergalactic space mission, then you know all about the value of a good force field. Tokyo Police Club surely do, and in the four years since the band's last album, our brave heroes from Toronto spent several long winters and many manic nights in their own fortress of solitude, learning to deflect that which would do them harm or lead them astray and to respect and to trust those they knew best: each other.

"We struggled with finding our spot as a band and owning what we were," says lead singer/bass player and principle songwriter Dave Monks. "Everyone expected us to come out with another record like (2010's) Champ, but we didn't feel comfortable going on the same road we were on. We wanted to go somewhere else; an upward move, not lateral, so we starting writing and looking around for something new."

But just because something is new doesn't mean it's also fresh. Today's music world is over-saturated; it's crammed to the gills with fleeting spotlight grabs, quick bucks, tired regurgitation and trend after soulless copycat trend, sure, but also with talented acts, shrewd maneuvers and catchy choruses that drop your jaw with their deceptively simple brilliance. Tokyo Police Club (Monks, keyboardist/guitarist Graham Wright, guitarist Josh Hook and drummer Greg Alsop) knew that a new direction could be their key–but that choice would not be without its pitfalls.

From Indian Lakes

 

From Indian Lakes is the experimental indie rock brainchild of California based multi-instrumentalist Joey Vannucchi. He began writing songs in a small mountain community just outside Yosemite National Park and later enlisted the help of friends to perform his material. Able Bodies (album) gained acclaim when it was released independently in 2012. Vannucchi continues to evolve the project's sound into music that “blurs the boundaries of genres like indie, post-rock and alternative” and From Indian Lakes released, "Absent Sounds", on Triple Crown Records at the end of 2014.

SIXX: A.M.

It’s a universal truth that true artists will always busy themselves creating, and that truly great artists will always find an audience for that work. It is little surprise then that despite storied individual histories playing in and working with some of the most iconic bands ever to have stalked the planet, Nikki Sixx, Dj Ashba and James Michael—collectively known as SIXX:A.M.—find themselves on the brink of unleashing yet another rock monster onto a burgeoning fan-base, that has already taken them firmly to their hearts. 

With two U.S. Billboard top 20 albums and a string of hit singles already under their belt, Prayers For The Damned, the fourth studio album from a trio, represents the band’s most ambitious, complete and adrenaline-soaked effort to date. The album also boasts first-class production and mixing by Michael and original artwork from Ashba, proving that this collection of music is a true labor of passion.

The Lonely Biscuits

The Lonely Biscuits, formerly known as Gravy and the Biscuits have been together since September of 2011. Founding members Grady Wenrich and Sam Gidley were random roommates at Belmont University, in Nashville, where they started jamming and making music out of their dorm room. John Paterini, current lead singer of the band came into the picture in September after hearing some of their tunes from his dorm room across the hall. Then, two months later, Nick Byrd joined the band as an official biscuit playing bass guitar. Blending soul, funk, and pop with rap; The Lonely Biscuits have created a unique sound that has appealed to a wide array of people. The Lonely Biscuits have toured the country playing at universities, festivals, and clubs, gaining dedicated fans everywhere they go. The band was recently named mtvU’s first ever “College Artist of The Year”, and traveled to Austin, TX, to perform at the mtvU Woodies Festival at SXSW. The band has independently released three EPs. Their latest EP “A Girl Named Destiny”, charted on Billboard’s Regional Heatseekers Chart, and gained national coverage from numerous notable music blogs and magazines. The Lonely Biscuits continue to write, record, and perform new music that can relate with anyone, and they will continue to share it with as many people as possible.

Kelsey Kopecky

The second album from six-piece Kopecky, Drug for the Modern Age takes the many shake-ups the band’s endured over the past few years and turns them into inspiration for groove-driven, melody-heavy alt-pop that’s intensely emotional and strangely exhilarating. “The album was written in this weird time of so much pain but also happiness, and that really informed the writing and recording,” says vocalist/guitarist Gabe Simon, who co-founded the group with vocalist/keyboardist Kelsey Kopecky in 2007. “Our goal was to talk about all these very serious things we were dealing with, but in a way that felt nothing like wallowing and more like standing triumphantly, or even dancing our way through it.”

In achieving that dynamic, Nashville-based Kopecky (whose lineup also includes guitarist Steven Holmes, bassist Corey Oxendine, cellist Markus Midkiff, and drummer David Krohn) offer moments of symphonic grandeur alongside edgy, electronic-leaning innovation. Meanwhile, their daringly intimate lyrics both unsettle and engage, asking questions and encouraging reflection on the part of the listener. “The idea behind the title Drug for the Modern Age is that we’re all trying to find the drug that helps us get through life and deal with the pressures and challenges that almost everyone in our generation faces,” says Gabe. “Whether it’s love or real connection or even an actual drug, we’re all looking for something that makes us feel like we’re a part of something good and meaningful.”

Okey Dokey

You can't fully appreciate the long history of recorded music without taking time to look back at the breakups. Whether it's for good or for the season, Okey Dokey is the product of that natural reformation that occurs when musicians part ways. Fronted by visual artist Aaron Martin and The Weeks' guitarist Johny Fisher, the live band features a shifting cast of local talent. Including members of The Weeks, Sol Cat, Desert Noises, Diane Coffee, and Wild Child, Okey Dokey will add to the roster moving into the Spring of 2016 with the release of their upcoming full length album, 'Love You, Mean It.'

Shannon LaBrie

Music by Nashville chanteuse Shannon LaBrie defies genre and brings to life insightful stories of a woman who remains true to herself in a life where uncertainty is certain. The Lincoln, NE native instantly became a favorite among music fans and critics alike with her powerful 2013 debut Just Be Honest. With her lead single, “I Remember a Boy,” the independent release reached inside the Top Ten on iTunes and the Triple A Radio charts. Famed music blogger Bob Lefsetz wrote, “This track affected me. Made me believe like the great singer-songwriters of yore, maybe this woman has something to say. That in this crazy, mixed up, shoot-up world she can illuminate her story and people can relate.”

Seth Philpott

Old soul. Maybe your first thoughts are of your grandparents, a story
from the “good ol’ days” or sounds of the woodwork in an old house. Or
maybe it’s the feel of a worn down quilt or tired shoes. And maybe you
feel at home where the grit and ancestry of true stories meet. It is
in those miles you find true heart and soul. It is there that you find
the voice of Seth Philpott.

Aaron Krause

Formed and refined in Nashville, TN, St. Louis native Aaron Krause sings with the authenticity and honesty of a man whose heart has lived lifetimes. His thoughtful lyrics and polished melodies display perceptive skill well beyond his 23 years.

The interplay between his pop sensibilities and emotional vulnerability yield songs that are both accessible and provocative. Moving smoothly through sonic ranges of indie folk, moody synth-pop and more, Aaron tirelessly attempts to make music that highlights poignant songwriting without regard for genre.

Jordan DePaul

Hailing from Youngstown, Ohio, Jordan DePaul is a singer-songwriter that recently made the move to Nashville, TN. Pulling from his life experiences and using them to captivate audiences through passionate, high-energy performances, DePaul's music is rootsy and organic in nature, allowing him to deeply relate with his audience.

Buffalo Rodeo

Buffalo Rodeo’s latest EP "123 Water" dances a line between classical ethereal sounds reminiscent of 70’s bands like Pink Floyd and Fleetwood Mac and modern psychedelic variations like Mac Demarco and Tame Impala.  A considerable maturation from their 2013 release “Home Videos,” Buffalo Rodeo strives to combine tight rhythms and ambient melodies with expressive vocal harmonies on their newest release.

Old 97's

To say that rock and roll has been good to the Old 97's (guitarist/vocalist Miller, bassist/vocalist Murry Hammond, guitarist Ken Bethea, and drummer Philip Peeples) would be an understatement. The band emerged from Dallas twenty years ago at the forefront of a musical movement blending rootsy, country-influenced songwriting with punk rock energy and delivery. 

Heartless Bastards

Heartless Bastards have spent the past decade in motion, boldly pushing their unique brand of rock ‘n’ roll into new shapes over four acclaimed albums and nearly non-stop roadwork. Now, with RESTLESS ONES, the band sets out once again, blazing a path to a place of shifting moods, seasoned songcraft, and unbridled spontaneity. Heartless Bastards’ fifth studio recording and follow-up to 2012’s breakthrough ARROW, the album finds singer/songwriter Erika Wennerstrom exploring as-yet-unvisited avenues of sound and sensation, her bravery and ambition readily apparent in the emotional timbre and the sheer physicality of her songs. “Wind Up Bird” and “Into The Light” are straightforward yet stunningly sophisticated, shot through with layered guitars, atmospheric harmonies, hints of synth, and a powerhouse rhythm section adept at both subtle swing and heavy horsepower. Wennerstrom’s spellbinding vocals are of course front and center, her one-of-a-kind voice as primal, cathartic, and indefinable as ever.

Parachute

Will Anderson: Lead Vocals, Guitars, Piano
Kit French: Saxophone, Keyboards, Vocals
Alex Hargrave: Bass
Johnny Stubblefield: Drums
Nate McFarland: Lead Guitar, Vocals

Mixing full-throttle rock with dollops of blue-eyed soul, vintage R&B and melodic pop radio anthems in-the-making, Parachute has arrived. With roots in Charlottesville, VA, the five members of Parachute have been friends for years and have developed a sound that is all their own. Will has been playing with drummer Johnny Stubblefield, bassist Alex Hargrave and saxophone/keyboardist Kit French since they were classmates in high school almost seven years ago. Will met Nate while attending University of Virginia together, and the guitarist joined the band three years ago. The unmistakable energy on stage is a result of their friendship, and it has helped them to find many successes within their mixed genre. 

Parachute’s debut album Losing Sleep was released on Mercury Records (IDJ) in May, 2009, and has sold over 100,000 copies. The album went to #1 on the iTunes and Amazon charts, and reached #39 on the Billboard Top200. In conjunction with the release, their second single “Under Control” was released as the iTunes Free Single of the Week and went on to be one of the most downloaded releases of all times with over 600,000 downloads that week. In winter 2009, the band released a holiday EP titled Winterlove which has sold over 16,000 units.

Although the band has found many successes in their studio release, their major achievements can be found on the road. In 2009, Parachute played approximately 175 shows including headlining dates and support slots for band such as Switchfoot, O.A.R., Three Doors Down and Secondhand Serenade. In November 2009, the band took off on a national tour as support for American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson’s “All I Ever Wanted” Tour, which included dates in Canada. The tour was so successful, that Parachute was invited to tour with Kelly on the international leg of her tour in 2010. Other major touring opportunities in 2010 have included a co-headlining tour with Safetysuit in January (with sold out shows in New York, Boston, Minneapolis, and St. Louis, a headlining run in the UK, and an appearance on VH1’s Best Cruise Ever in April.

The Saint Johns

Jordan Meredith and Louis Johnson of The Saint Johns have the ingredient every special duo needs: chemistry.

Theirs is the kind of relationship where neither finishes a sentence because the other already gets it in just a few words. It’s the kind of relationship that starts at a friend’s Taco Tuesday party in St. Augustine, Florida, in 2008. And it’s a relationship everyone assumes is romantic. But this meet-cute has an unusual ending – it doesn’t end in marriage, but a beautiful
partnership nevertheless that has yielded The Saint Johns’ debut album Dead of Night.

Yumi and the System 

Blink and you could miss an East Nashville show played by Yumi and the System. But if you’re listening, you’ll hear about the energy long after the show. They’re Cat Power vs. the Kills. A grunge-­‐rock cousin to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. And their energy is sweeping the floor, and providing an integral part of the ever-­‐shifting rock genre. This crunching, energy packed duo swelling up East Nashville has easily become a must-­‐see for locals in the rock scene. With strict punk beats, daring melodies, and seasoned with electronic flavor, Yumi and the System have caught onto something.

La Luz

For most, a brush with death would be cause for retreat, reflection,
and reluctance, but Seattle band La Luz found something different in
it: resilience. Having survived a high-speed highway collision shortly
after releasing their 2013 debut LP It’s Alive, La Luz, despite
lasting trauma, returned to touring with a frequency and tirelessness
that put their peers to shame. Over the past year-and-a-half of
performing, the band arrived at a greater awareness of their music’s
ability to whip eager crowds into a frenzy. In response, frontwoman
Shana Cleveland’s guitar solos took on a more unhinged quality. The
basslines (from newly-installed member Lena Simon) became more lithe
and elastic. Stage-dives and crowd-surfing grew to be as indelible a
part of the La Luz live experience as their onstage doo-wop-indebted
dance moves.

Jack Berry

Nashville-based alt/blues rocker, Jack Berry, premieres his first single, “The Bull,” via Consequence of Sound from his forthcoming LP, Mean Machine, set for a Spring 2016 release. Berry’s gritty rock sound has garnered acclaim from Blues Rock Review (Top 10 Artists to Watch in 2013, #2 album of 2013) and The Deli Magazine (Top Ten Nashville Artists to Watch, 2015). His song, “Kiss Like,” will also be featured on the sixth season premiere of the Showtime series, Shameless. 

Tesla Rossa

For the son of a casket salesman from Nashville Tennessee, music was the only path that would allow him to live forever. Growing up in music city and a growing lust for life led Jason Denton (vocals & guitar) to songwriting, and through a chance meeting that would seem like opposite symmetry, to pair up with Ryan Tullock (guitar, backing vocals), a starving musician raised by missionary parents in Eastern Europe. The two decided to hone their craft together under the name Tesla Rossa.

Brave Town

Brave Town is Jay Ragsdale, Michael Kelley, Lucas Morton, and Dan Crotts. An Alt/Rock band based out of Nashville, they strive to not just create great music, but to impact people through their songs and to build a welcoming and supportive community. Having shared the stage with artists like Twenty One Pilots, Smallpools, Dinner and a Suit, and many others; Brave Town is constantly challenging itself to grow to it's fullest potential as a band and as people.

Hellyeah

After roughly eight years, three albums, countless tours as headliners and as participants on “can’t miss” festival bills and hundreds of thousands of albums sold, HELLYEAH is making their biggest and boldest statement yet with BLOOD FOR BLOOD. They are going for the jugular and every song on the album clamps down and doesn’t let go. They’ve exchanged some of the party-centric, good time sounds of past efforts for pure metallic fury and emotional introspection. The album sounds like a re-charged HELLYEAH, taken up many notches.

Escape The Fate

Escape the Fate is an American rock band from Las Vegas, NV, formed in 2005 and originally from Pahrump, NV. They are signed to Eleven Seven Music. The group consists of Robert Ortiz (drummer), Craig Mabbitt (lead vocalist), TJ Bell (rhythm guitarist and vocalist), Kevin "Thrasher" Gruft (lead guitarist) and touring musician Max Georgiev (bassist).

From Ashes to New

Lancaster, Pennsylvania is the sort of town of which there are many hundred all across America: post-industrial, blue collar and, on occasion, more than a little bleak. As is so often the case though, it is in these relative backwards towns that authentic, compelling creativity truly thrives - the monotony of the landscape punctuated by brilliant flares of art. FROM ASHES TO NEW are one such flare; a thoroughly modern rock band wielding both a state-of-the-art sound and an old-as-the-hills work ethic.

Baskery

Greta Bondesson: 6-string banjo, electric guitar, vocals and drums Stella Bondesson: Double bass and vocals Sunniva Bondesson: Acoustic- and electric guitar and vocals 

No matter where they go in the world, people tell the Swedish sisters that they've never heard or seen anything like it, that they have a completely unique set-up and perform with what seems to be an inexhaustible energy. Baskery is all about turning the music on its head, blending the straightforwardness of punk with the subtlety of singer/songwriting.  
This high voltage trio based in Los Angeles since  signing with Warner Bros in 2014, has been compared to anything from Fleetwood Mac, First Aid Kit, Black Keys to Led Zeppelin. The band recently  toured with Gary Clark Jr and Brandi Carlile.  
 Expect the sounds of “banjopunk”, “ fierce folk”, “nordicana”, an energetic live show and killer sibling harmonies

Sebastian Bach

18 And Life on Skid Row tells the story of a boy who spent his childhood moving from Freeport, Bahamas to California and finally to Canada and who at the age of eight discovered the gift that would change his life. Throughout his career, Sebastian Bach has sold over 20 millionrecords both as the lead singer of Skid Row and as a solo artist. He is particularly known for the hit singles I Remember You, Youth Gone Wild, 18 & Life, and the albums Skid Row and Slave To The Grind, which became the first ever hard rock album to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200. Bach then went on to become the first rock star to grace the Broadway stage, with starring roles in Jekyll & Hyde, Jesus Christ Superstar and The Rocky Horror Show. He also appeared for seven seasons on the hit television show The Gilmore Girls.

In his memoir, Bach recounts lurid tales of excess and debauchery as he toured the world with Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Motley Crue, Soundgarden, Pantera, Nine Inch Nails and Guns N’ Roses. Filled with backstage photos from his own personal collection, 18 And Life on Skid Row is the story of hitting it big at a young age, and of a band that broke up in its prime. It is the story of a man who achieved his wildest dreams, only to lose his family, and then his home. It is a story of perseverance, of wine, women and song and a man who has made his life on the road and always will. 18 And Life On Skid Row is not your ordinary rock memoir, because Sebastian Bach is not your ordinary rock star.

Matthew Logan Vasquez

2015 (The Year of The Ram) has been a year of major change for Matthew Logan Vasquez. He moved with his wife, Marthe, from Brooklyn to Austin, he saw the birth of his first child Thor, and after a decade since founding his critically acclaimed band, Delta Spirit, he’s finally decided to go it alone FOR THE FIRST TIME, with his solo debut, The Austin EP, to be released November, 2015 , and a full length LP, Solicitor Returns, to shortly follow in early 2016. This sea- change is reflected on the EP’s stunning psych-folk-rock opener, a ballsy 18-minute track (yes EIGHTEEN minutes) that conjures desert visions of Crazy Horse guitar solos, David Crosby’s mustache, and all the good things about a journey through the past on mescaline. Matt actually grew up in Austin (and Dana Point, CA too) and the song is a slice of his life--an autobiography that isn’t even close to being finished-- an epic American saga that reflects his skill as a remarkable modern songwriter still on the rise. If Richard Linklater could write a song, this would be it. 

Reverend Baron

Matt Haeck

The songs on Matt Haeck’s debut album, Late Bloomer, are permeated with evocative tales of struggle with vice, addiction, depression, divorce, and other demons. He is scrappy with a genuine, lyrical voice. Haeck sings of hard earned truths, both his own and those of the imaginative characters he creates.

The David Mayfield produced LP, Late Bloomer, was recorded in East Nashville at East Side Manor Studios and will be released via Blaster Records on June 3rd.

Matt Haeck (pronounced Heck) was born in the West Indies to missionary parents and started out following a somewhat preordained path towards Christian ministry. Along that path, while nearing completion of his Masters of Divinity degree, Haeck experienced a profound loss of connection to theology and responded to his truer calling, music.

His profound life shift was accompanied by a four year descent into addiction to alcohol, cocaine and pills, which delayed Haeck’s musical development. It was only through a stint in rehab, a year-long relapse, and a second, deeper attempt that his sobriety finally took root and his sense of purpose returned. During that time, Haeck began to craft the songs that would become Late Bloomer. and was cast in Studio Tenn’s critically-acclaimed stage production of “The Hank Legacy” and later, “The Cash Legacy.” 

Of the album title, Late Bloomer, Matt shares matter-of-factly, “I’ve never been a prodigy. In the years just after college, where I studied classical voice, I began writing and performing songs of my own, but due to a background in which I was taught to follow rules, I had the damnedest struggle discovering my own voice as a writer and a singer.”

“I didn’t examine myself and begin to really grow into the man I want to be until I was 30 years old,” says Haeck. “I have a long way to go, but there’s so much I’m eager to discover along the way. And that discovery, that trip, is where the good stuff lives."

Slippery When Wet

Slippery When Wet, the Ultimate Bon Jovi Tribute, was formed in 2003 by Jason Morey after answering many inquiries of, “Are you Jon Bon Jovi?”  Taking advantage of his resemblance he became determined to create an accurate portrayal of the band. Using exact live arrangements from Bon Jovi’s 2000 Crush, 2002’s Bounce, 2005’s Have A Nice Day  , 2008’s Lost Highway and 2010’s The Circle tours, Slippery When Wet delivers an authentic Bon Jovi experience. Their dedication to perfection achieves an ‘Arena-type’ atmosphere to packed clubs nationally. The bands shows are the most attended and highest grossing of any Bon Jovi Tribute in the country. Slippery When Wet received the rare seal of approval in 2007 with official authorization from Bon Jovi Management.

Beach Slang

Beach Slang are a band who have garnered a lot of attention considering that they've only released two 7-inches, 2014's Cheap Thrills On A Dead End Street and its companion Who Would Ever Want Something So Broken? Refreshingly this Philadelphia-based act have built their hype the old-fashioned way, without any gimmicks or marketing teams, which makes sense when you consider that frontman and writer James Alex cut his teeth in the Pennsylvania pop-punk act Weston while drummer JP Flexner and bassist Ed McNulty also play in buzzed about projects such as Ex-Friends and Crybaby. However there's something indefinable about Beach Slang's music that evokes the spirit of punk and juxtaposes it into something that's as brutally honest as it is infectiously catchy.

Parquet Courts

Little was said about Parquet Courts’ debut effort, American Specialties. Released exclusively on cassette tape, the quasi-album was an odd collection of 4 track recordings that left those who were paying attention wanting more. A year of woodshedding live sets passed before the Courts committed another song to tape. The band’s first proper LP, Light Up Gold, is a dynamic and diverse foray into the back alleys of the American DIY underground. Bright guitars swirl serpentine over looping, groovy post-punk bass lines and drums that border on robotic precision. While the initial rawness of the band’s early output remains, the songwriting has gracefully evolved. Primary wordsmiths A. Savage and Austin Brown combine for a dynamic lyrical experience, one part an erudite overflow of ideas, the other an exercise in laid-back observation. Lyrically dense, the poetry is in how it flows along with the melody, often times as locked-in as the rhythm section.

B Boys

 

Three psychos that came to be through fate by way of necessity, B Boys offer up to the world their sonic manifesto, No Worry No Mind. A relief from the mania, an expression of duality, an extension of Dadaism. 

Born in different times from alternate altered states, these B’s convene on the astral plane, channeling the individual experience and wisdom from their respective points of origin into a singular entity. Abstraction takes a triangular form: vibrant guitar melodies, undulating bass lines, deep swirling grooves. Sounds that transcend a linear timeline, splintering out across multiple spectrums. Interlocking vocals skillfully bob and weave overtop, their mantras resounding. But don’t be fooled, they’re just like anyone else — they put their chinos on one leg at a time. 

You’ve got something growing out your neck, my friend. Are you willing to hear its call? Open your Self to the frequencies and let the vibrations illuminate your being.

The Griswolds

As far as debut album mantras go, “Be Impressive” is a fantastically simple statement of intent.

For Sydney party-starters The Griswolds it proved the driving ideal that would shake off the daiquiri- flavoured tropical tones of their Heart of a Lion EP and unite the four-piece’s more refined musical goals. Be Impressive? These 11 shimmering, anthemic tracks are that and more. Be Impressive isn’t just an indie- rock record you can dance to; it’s a record that’ll break and mend your heart, have you dancing with joy. It’s the hedonistic island paradise that’s an escape from all of your worries... before it becomes obvious it’s better to confront them than to run away.

Panama Wedding

Panama Wedding has quickly established itself as one of the most promising indie artists of the year with "All Of The People," a deliriously joyful pop single that has been hailed by music outlets around the globe and has earned over 400,000 plays on Soundcloud. But Peter Kirk, the New York-based mastermind 
behind Panama Wedding, is not dwelling upon the buzz garnered from his musical outfit's breakthrough track; instead, Kirk is preparing a rich career full of expertly crafted songs that defy categorization, and a live show that grows more muscular as his audiences swell. "All Of The People" is an enduring anthem and 
envious first act, but Kirk -- newly signed to Glassnote Records and readying his debut EP -- has much more up his sleeve.

You Won't

You Won’t is the musical duo of Josh Arnoudse and Raky Sastri, who first met in 1999 as unlikely fencing partners in a high school production of the Broadway flop “My Favorite Year.”  Some 17 years later, they are still collaborating closely but no longer assaulting each other with pointy metal rods.  Since the release of their full-length debut Skeptic Goodbye in 2012, You Won’t has toured across North America, garnering praise from the likes of SPIN, NPR, KEXP, and The New York Times for their raggedly infectious and charmingly idiosyncratic sound.  Their dynamic and enthusiastically unorthodox live performances have earned them support slots with The Lumineers, The Joy Formidable, Josh Ritter, Lucius, and Deer Tick, and an appearance on NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly.  Their mixed feelings about social media have earned them scorn and derision.

Half Moon Run

https://www.halfmoonrun.com

Honesty is the fabric of all our interpersonal relationships. It’s the levelling light that removes us from concealment and obscurity. For Half Moon Run, it’s been crucial to every step they’ve taken together. They never laboured under the notion that they would be successful musicians in a touring band. Nevertheless, when they formed in Montreal in 2009, multi-instrumentalists Devon Portielje, Conner Molander and Dylan Phillips abandoned every backup plan because they weren’t prepared to sacrifice their uncommon chemistry. Instinct and faith led them to create their astonishingly accomplished debut album Dark Eyes, released in 2012 (2013 in the UK).

The Cerny Brothers

Buzzbands.LA call The Cerny Brothers “a group without any trendy gimmicks, a lead banjo player strumming with the same vigor as if on the electric guitar and simplistic lyrics delivered with strength.” This year marks the release of their new album “Sleeping Giant,” which they recorded at Bear Creek Studios in Seattle with producers Jerry Streeter and Ryan Hadlock, who are known for their work with Brandi Carlile and The Lumineers. The album signifies a new direction for the band, as the music has turned from an acoustic, folk element to a more electric, American rock sound while still keeping the folk spirit from their earlier work. The songs on “Sleeping Giant” deal with becoming a man and finding identity in a constantly changing world, staying rooted in something that can be shaken but not moved, and realizing that we all have a sleeping giant inside of us waiting to be set free.

Feedback Revival

Led by singer extraordinaire Dan Fenton, Feedback Revival will bring to life a canvas painted by the likes of Tom Waits, Led Zeppelin, Kings of Leon, performing songs that depict the struggles of human condition. Throw in a pinch of salted Jack White and a dash of peppered up Stooges, and there you have it. A band to spice up your rock and roll listening experience. Formed and reformed, the band is a combination of some of Nashville’s tightest musicians. Musical factotum, Alex Horton brings not only pocketed grooves on the bass but saturates the bands sound with soulful and haunting keys. Taylor Powell, seasoned veteran of the Nashville music scene plays drums like a man possessed. Thunderous and precise, blow after blow. Doctor Nathan Mcfarland is seemingly reserved and calm till his fingers grace the the strings and then all bets are off. Educated in classical guitar, but reborn into rock n’ roll, Nathan’s every riff speaks a thousand words whether it’s two notes or the whole scale. Feedback Revival is part heretic, part holy roller, but all rock n’ roll.

Heavy Sole

Heavy Sole is an American twosome filling up the muscial spectrum as minimalists and breaking the current mold of the "modern duo."

This boogie is made for the righteous, dreamers, and free thinking bad mama jama’s who rise up each day to take in as much as this groovy little planet will allow, before that sunset limited makes haste and finds its way to their doorstep, can you dig?

Riverbend Reunion

Let the music roll, it bleeds out from my soul…

Those are the sincere words of americana rock and roll band, Riverbend Reunion, from their upcoming debut album ‘Peace And Plenty’ and the band lives true to those words. The Reunion is all about real musicians, writing nostalgic songs, in an industry in desperate need of more throw back grooves. 

Tyler Boone

Growing up in the Lowcountry of Charleston, SC Boone first became enamored with the small club rock scene and slowly started making his move on the way up to headlining major music venues & while gaining traction on radio waves while opening up for some incredible talent.

His latest single "Front Page Show" is a fresh step forward into the bluesy rock realm Boone has always been inspired from but still carries a catchy melodic hook like his latest releases. Now going international on radio in Ururo, Bolivia & Tokyo, Japan, this new sound is starting to take off.

The two of them joined forces very naturally with a kindred friendship and a common love for music as an outlet. They sing of love, loss, death, addiction, hope, and the occasional lack there of.

Daphne and the Mystery Machines have been on quite an extensive festival tour, and has plans to continue to bring this unique musical experience to music festivals across the US and to do a radio tour after the debut album releases.

Jude Johnstone

 

Jude Johnstone has had her share of unforgettable moments during her three-decade music career. Fresh out of high school, she found herself seated next to Clarence Clemons, the E Street Band’s sax player, on an airplane. Afterward, he was so taken with the demo she sent that he invited her to recording sessions forThe River and got her hooked up with Bruce Springsteen producer Chuck Plotkin in L.A. Then there were the singular songwriters—T Bone Burnett and Leonard Cohen, to name two—who recognized in her a kindred spirit and asked her to sing on their albums, and the legendary Motown bassist James Jamerson who’d show up early at her weekly gigs just because he enjoyed helping her decide which songs to put on the set list. Once, she even received an out-of-the-blue invitation to pen lyrics to music composed by Bob Dylan, who’s not only the archetypal singer-songwriter of the modern era but a pretty darn infrequent co-writer.

There’s a good reason why these sorts of informal encounters have opened so many doors for Johnstone along the way, and it’s not dumb luck.

“It’s all because of the power of the songs,” she says. “When I met Clarence, I was 18 years old, so the songs were not quite as well-written. But there was something going on that he heard, and he just plucked me out of Bar Harbor, Maine and I never went back.”

That’s no exaggeration. Ever since then, this child of a tiny, blueberry-picking New England town has made her home within shouting distance of Hollywood, and made use of her gift for emotional excavation combined with her love of sophisticated songcraft.

Rogue Wave

Over the decade and a half that Rogue Wave has made music, Zach Rogue has continued to expand his band’s emotional spectrum. Drawing inspiration from the inevitable delusions of everyday American life, Rogue, his longtime bandmate Pat Spurgeon, and their fellow members have returned reinvigorated, and with a fresh sound founded on the art of patience, the fearlessness of experimenting, and the unbridled joy of creating something meaningful to help us navigate through these vacant times. Trusting in its own abilities and leaning on each other, Rogue Wave has seized creative control of its identity and sound and is set to smash any preconceptions of its music, revealing the most truthful, powerful, and urgent sonic blueprint of the band to date.

Hey Marseilles

As a musical breeding ground, Seattle is mistrustful of eager strivers. Still suffering from a grunge hangover, the city would rather embrace its underachievers than hitch its wagon to the obviously ambitious. So for the past eight years, Hey Marseilles has played by the rules, earned their indie cred the usual way: by touring relentlessly across the US and releasing a pair of albums beloved by fans around the world. But even as they succeeded at their modest goals, the members of Hey Marseilles—singer Matt Bishop, guitarist Nick Ward, keyboardist Philip Kobernik, violist Sam Anderson, violinist Jacob Anderson—felt restless.

Josh Abbott Band

When Josh Abbott Band recorded “Ghosts” for its fourth album, Front Row Seat, Abbott expected to redo the vocals. The final chorus had some technical imperfections, and he figured he could improve on the performance once his heart settled down. Producer Dwight Baker, one-half of the Austin-based duo The Wind and The Wave, wouldn’t let Abbott retouch it.

“I was actually crying my eyes out during that last chorus, and that’s why there’s a couple of notes in the beginning of that section that don’t really explode like normal,” Abbott says. “Dwight was like, ‘We’re keeping that. That’s real.’”

Real is the operative word for Front Row Seat, a 16-track song cycle that represents the most ambitious and emotionally challenging project yet for JAB, a highly melodic six-piece ensemble that’s managed to keep a foot in both the Texas music scene and the national country world. The band won four times during the inaugural Texas Regional Radio Awards behind an upbeat brand of country that still leans on classic instrumentation – particularly banjo and fiddle – to effect a raucous, roof-raising attitude.

The band has lobbed three singles onto the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart – including “Oh, Tonight,” the first charted track to feature Grammy-winning Kacey Musgraves – and nabbed a Top 10 album with the 2012 release Small Town Family Dreams and reached No. 12 with the 2014 EP Tuesday Night.

Carly Pearce

Born to the bluegrass sounds of Kentucky in the land that Keith Whitley, Bill Monroe, and the Judds hail from. She's been on stage more in her 23 years than most artists twice her age. A tone that's unforgettable, a delivery as pure as it is believable. A voice made for millions. Carly Pearce is something from country music's past with a future as bright as Opry lights.

Greyhounds

As Greyhounds, guitarist Andrew Trube and keyboardist Anthony Farrell have been making music and touring for 15 years, refining and developing a sound Trube calls “Hall and Oates meet ZZ Top.” The band also has long ties to Memphis, home of the soul that inspires them.
Ardent Music, the independent record label based out of legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tennessee, expects to build on the fanbase the band has developed both on the road and as a staple of the Austin music scene. Label director Reed Turchi says, “We committed to three albums not only because we believe in these guys, not only because they’re great musicians and songwriters, but because they’ve been incredibly prolific.” “We’re always writing,” Trube says. “We’ve got songs for eight albums.”

Ardent has had a long and productive relationship with Texas music: Studio C was designed for ZZ Top, which called Ardent Studios home for many years, and Stevie Ray and Jimmy Vaughan recorded Family Style in the famous brick building on Madison Avenue. 

The first ‘hounds out of the gate will be Accumulator, scheduled for an April 2014 release. The album will combine cream-of-the-crop tunes the band’s devoted followers pass along to the uninitiated with new, previously-unreleased tracks.

Reed Turchi & the Caterwauls

Raised in the Swannanoa Valley just outside of Asheville, North Carolina, Reed Turchi grew up playing piano, focusing on boogie woogie and New Orleans styles before becoming infatuated with slide guitar. While learning Hill Country Blues (RL Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, Mississippi Fred McDowell) firsthand in North Mississippi, he founded his blues-rock trio “TURCHI,” which released its debut album Road Ends in Water in 2012. Called "everything a blues fan could want" (LA Examiner), the album featured guest Luther Dickinson on three tracks.

Revealing musical and songwriting influences ranging from Randy Newman and JJ Cale to Beck, T Rex, and Tinariwen, Reed steps out from behind the gruff fuzz into a multi-faceted sound built on finely crafted songs and ear- & rear-moving grooves. Featuring an all-star group of musicians including drummer/bassist Paul Taylor, saxophonist Art Edmaiston, Andrew Trube and Anthony Farrell (Greyhounds), and Adriano Viterbini, Speaking in Shadows is built on a foundation of Memphis groove and fat-back rhythm. Fresh textures abound, from the carnival of sounds on tongue-in-cheek “Drawn and Quartered” to the heartbreaking vocals of Heather Moulder on the spare, haunting lead track “Pass Me Over.” As a songwriter, Turchi confidently mines the classic blues/rock vein in "Offamymind" ("Well I can barely walk, so I guess I oughta/ Get behind this wheel and drive”), effortlessly shifts gears to the satirical "Everybody's Waiting (for the end to come)," and turns introspective in "Looking Up Past Midnight." Reuniting with engineer Adam Hill (Big Star, Dirty Streets, White Stripes), Reed strikes out for new territory with co-production by Billy Bennett (MGMT, Drive-By Truckers, Los Colognes). The album was mastered by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Natural Child, The Whigs) at Bombshelter Studios in East Nashville, with artwork and design from Charles Ritchie.

Two Cow Garage

 

In 2003, Two Cow Garage--the Columbus, Ohio-based three-piece featuring Micah Schnabel (vocals, guitar), Shane Sweeney (bass, vocals), and David Murphy (drums)--released their debut full-length, 0Please Turn the Gas Back On. The powerful rhythm and sweeping melody of the record’s opening track, “Been So Long”, has since given rise to four additional full-length releases, a handful of singles, and a few solo efforts. The band has paraded their brand of heart-wrenching, yet ferocious rock-n-roll, which calls to mind Nirvana, The Men, and Dinosaur, Jr. through countless North American tours as well as several European sojourns. Two Cow Garage’s 2010 release, Sweet Saint Me, not only garnered airplay on WXPN's World Café where it was showcased as a featured artist selection, but also found its way onto many critics’ best-of lists. The band has performed at numerous festivals including SXSW, CMJ, The Fest, Pouzza, and has toured with acts like The Hold Steady, Drag the River, Slobberbone, and Glossary.

Bloc Party

Bloc Party is an autonomous unit of un-extraordinary kids reared on pop culture between the years of 1976 and the present day. Like many such kids, between them they eventually concluded that their own attempts to imitate what had informed them could be construed as a worthy variation on the many forms that preceded. They do everything that's required to conform to the currently received ideas of what a band is: ostensibly to play instruments at the same time, but also have a title for the work created.

Kele picked up a guitar when his hands enabled him to do so and his brain gave him the inclination. Russell had already done as much beforehand when they met in 1998. In the fine print of music papers and in telephone conversations they enabled meetings with Gordon and Matt who also had ideas of some relevance to bring to the collective effort. In this sense a band was created.

Dingzui

A self-described "songwriting Panzer-tank" who cite Parquet Courts, Wilco, Modest Mouse, and The Flaming Lips among their chief influences, the band currently errs on the side of sonic exploration and cohesive narrative structure rather than the outright repurposing of proven clichés for the sake of posterity.

The Fabulous Miss Wendy

For Hollywood-based rocker The Fabulous Miss Wendy, comparison to iconic female musicians is nothing new: Hollywood’s punk rock princess, The Fabulous Miss Wendy is already “the sexiest rock star ever,” according to Revolver Magazine. Wendy has come a long way since picking up a guitar at the age of ten, and became a virtuoso by the age of 12. She has toured with Slash, UFO and Quiet Riot. She is an artist that is the true definition of “The Total Package” and, no doubt, will continue to leave her undeniable mark on the Rock and Roll world.

The Dictators NYC

One day, 3 guys from THE DICTATORS, the lead singer, Handsome Dick Manitoba, the lead guitar player, Ross The Boss, and the drummer, JP "Thunderbolt" Patterson, decided to meet THE DEMAND. They wanted to answer the call. They thought this music, that meant so much to so many, should not be put to rest.

So they went out and got the best, most fun bass player they knew, a man by the name of Dean "The Dream" Rispler, and they added a guitar player with a great punk rock pedigree, a man who wrote songs with and produced albums by THE RAMONES. That man was Daniel Rey.

The Dictators were complete. 

Except for one thing....

Since it wasn't the totally original line up the band felt obliged, historically and as a courtesy to members who either couldn't or didn't want to play, to have a slight differentiation name wise between the first wave and the latest incarnation of THE DICTATORS.

SO WAS BORN...

THE DICTATORS NYC!

SO BE IT! LONG LIVE THE DICTATORS NYC!

The Trigger Code

For over ten years The Trigger Code has seen an array of musicians occupy the bands line up, but has always primarily been the songwriting vehicle of taylor sorensen - the soft-spoken, yet charismatic singer and performer that is the identity behind the trigger code. 

Based out of Nashville, Tennessee since 2004, the trigger code caught the attention of Dualtone music group's Paul Roper when playing an impromptu writers night circa 2007. Since then The Trigger Code has released two projects under Dualtone - '08's self-titled EP and '10's full-length album, no preparation for parting. In 2010 secret road music services showed interest in the music and has since been in a partnership with Dualtone securing placements in tv an film for the trigger code. Outlets for the music via tv include One Tree Hill, Vampire Diaries, Chicago Fire, New Girl and HBO's critically acclaimed True Detective with the use of "Fugitive Kind" for the season #1 trailer. 

Stone Cupid

Julie Christensen, who’s authored five independent albums and sung with everyone from Leonard Cohen to Lou Reed, has surrounded herself with a team of team players. In guitarists Sergio Webb and Chris Tench, the “absence of ego” Christensen lauds, is on full display. As Tench creates the ideal sonic landscape, Webb populates it with one stunning surprise after another. Propelling the enterprise are drummer Steve Latanation and bassist Bones Hillman, who combine taste and telepathy into something so unified they seem a single entity.

Damien Jurado

Urban folk singer/songwriter Damien Jurado quietly built up one of the strongest catalogs on the indie scene, earning high critical praise yet somehow never quite getting his proper due.

Nick Drake had a definite impact on much of his work, but Jurado modeled his career on more idiosyncratic, unpredictable figures like Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, and Randy Newman -- songwriters who followed their own muse wherever it took them, whether fans and critics enjoyed it or not. His independence was born at least in part from the influence of punk, and one of the results was a concern for emotional authenticity that led him to delve into other people's lives instead of his own. Many of Jurado's best songs spun concise, literate tales of quiet, everyday despair, which often earned him comparisons to short story writer Raymond Carver. But his storytelling bent -- not to mention his ambivalence toward confessional material -- arose from a stronger grounding in traditional folk than spiritual compatriots like Elliott Smith or Cat Power. And with detours into pop, roots rock, full-fledged electric indie rock, and even found-sound experiments, Jurado ensured that his body of work was impossible to accurately pin down.

Ben Abraham

Ben Abraham is a singer-songwriter based in Melbourne, Australia.

Ben's honest songwriting and disarming stage presence have seen him grow in the last two years from a well-kept hometown secret into an independent artist with a passionate international following.

His distinctive soulful voice and developing reputation as a songwriter have led to recent collaborations with artists including Gotye and Sara Bareilles, and he was recently hand-picked by Emmylou Harris to support her on a national tour of Australia.

Joseph LeMay

 

Before patching up the old trailer in West Tennessee, grass grew through cracks on the floor and copperheads mingled between decades of stacked boxes on a grandfather’s hand-me-down farm. It was in this abandoned singlewide that songwriter Joseph LeMay cleared a space for his new life as a married man and Seventeen Acres, his first full-length release.

LeMay began performing at an age when most kids are focused on learning the alphabet. Just barely a teen, the young musician could add Showtime at the Apollo, an opening gig for Brian Wilson and a countless line of county fairs across the southeast to his list of growing accomplishments. This passion for music continued to manifest during high school as LeMay took to writing and moved to New York in search of work as a performer.

During his time in Manhattan, LeMay’s musical future bent when he met music veteran Charlie Peacock, producer of The Civil Wars and The Lone Bellow. LeMay moved to Nashville and spent hours as a silent observer of Peacock as artists passed through his studio. Witnessing the life of a working musician changed LeMay, inspiring him to find his voice.

But it wasn’t long before LeMay found himself in an age-old Nashville ritual- working a part-time job to pay the bills and creating on the side. “After making sandwiches for 60 hours a week, it’s hard to find the energy and time to do the work you want,” says LeMay. To escape the inevitable pace their life was heading, LeMay and his new wife made a drastic change of scenery and moved into that forgotten trailer on her family’s inherited farm on the outskirts of Dyersburg, Tenn.

Filled with stories of dissecting the nuances of love and uncertainty, Seventeen Acres was produced by LeMay himself and came to life in the same space the stories originated. Songs like “Fruit on the Vine” and “Warrant for My Worry” ache with missed expectations and hope in their draught, while “Molly My Girl” and “Just So” are timeless tales of endearing love. Start to finish, LeMay’s labor is driven by this love and all the desperation, fear and commitment that comes with it.

“Music fulfills a need,” says LeMay. “It’s communicating across mediums. We don’t just want words. It’s the color and the canvas. The cadence and the lyric.” It’s with a balanced grasp of bare truth and pursuit of grace that LeMay channels this primal need in the desolation of his Seventeen Acres.

LeMay is currently working on his sophomore album due out in 2016.

Civilian

Beyond their infectious hooks and seamless live performances, the gentlemen of Civilian use their platform to deliver well-crafted messages that command audiences' attention. With a storytelling vibe, Civilian's conversational songwriting creatively reflects their candid thoughts on politics, spirituality and justice. Civilian describes the gravity of their lyrical content as "dark songs masked in happy rock n' roll." More than simply words, their music mirrors each member's dedication to caring for the oppressed, fighting inconvenient battles, and confronting socio-polical disparity.

And it all begins and ends with just one thing: the song. When asked to describe the feeling he gets when he finishes writing a song and he can say to himself, “That’s it! I got it!,” Cox doesn’t hesitate for a second to respond, “Oh dude, that’s the best feeling in the world. I love it, man!”
