GROVES
GROVES
Born in Eagle Rock, a neighborhood in Northeast Los Angeles, the trio GROVES rented a house and began creating a dynamic sound that’s experimental, unafraid, and limitless. The native Texans Stephen Salisbury (vocals/guitar), Reid Guidry (bass) and Will Smith (drums) met in high school and after years of sharing the same passion for music, left their hometown of Groves, TX for LA, in pursuit of starting a band.

Highlighted by tight grooves and melodically rich guitar interplay, the trio balance their approach with dark synth underpinnings and vocals that are at once urgent and cinematic. These are big alt-rock tunes with an intuition for structure and a taste of history. Picture an American version of The Police meets Phoenix or Tame Impala, with small town charm.

‘Ender’, their debut single, released in January 2016, embodies Stephen Salisbury’s infatuation with Space, sci-fi, and infinite beings over an addictive and hypnotizing chorus progression and the lyrics, “Hear Me All Ender, Can you help me see the light?”.
The second single ‘Swim’, is more upbeat and takes a dreamy direction, it's the soundtrack for a perfect California day. After releasing only two songs, GROVES found themselves embarking across the US on their first tour, supporting the legendary 80's sensation, Culture Club. “Touring with Culture Club was a truly inspiring experience. Seeing a band that's grown over 30 years, and still maintains such a love and passion for the art of playing, it’s really the ultimate accomplishment. It brought back that feeling of us being kids and playing our first shows, and just dreaming of doing it forever. It was a constant reminder of everything we hope to achieve in our career”, says Salisbury. The momentum carried onto the radio, garnering attention from Alt 98.7fm LA's New Alternative, as well as The World Famous KROQ.

In February, 2017 GROVES will release their first body of work, the debut EP ‘Not For Nothing’ featuring the new single ‘Urges’. The EP will release in collaboration with MDDN Records, a management company and studio lead by Benji and Joel Madden. “We put our blood, sweat, and tears into crafting these songs. Every track on the EP had to pass through all three of our checklists and we honestly feel this is the truest representation of the GROVES sound. We're very excited to see where it takes us", says Guidry.
Bogan Via
Bogan Via
Bogan Via is Bret Bender and Madeleine Miller. MADLY is the band's second extended play album and it further develops their unique synth-pop sound.
MADLY was then recorded between 2013 and 2014 over two continents at the Red Bull Studios in Copenhagen and in their hometown of Los Angeles. Mixed in New York, the band co-produced the record with Le Chev (Fisherspooner, Frankie Rose, Lemonade).
Bogan Via has made a quite a mark on the scene, quickly playing packed shows including a European tour and festival appearances at: SXSW, Culture Collide, Folsom Street Fair, Phoenix Pride, Insomnia, San Diego Music Thing, Summer Ends, & Viva Phx. Bogan Via's ability to win over fans with their unique sound has already earned them opening spots for the likes of: Phantogram, Little Dragon, Halsey, Todd Terje, Ladyhawke, Glass Animals, Twin Shadow, Darwin Deez, Austra, Yacht, Betty Who, and many more, as well as remixes by: Geographer, Miniature Tigers, Database, Micon, & Terminal 11.
For now, Bogan Via's graceful and danceable indie rock is still under the radar, but they are quickly rising to the surface, bringing their melodies and pulsating beats with them. Over the past few years, Bogan Via's music has been featured on every blog from EDM to Consequence of Sound. With overwhelming responses to first listens of the record, this is the year that Bogan Via will start to make a splash.
Daise
Daise
Dark yet dreamy, indie band from the IE we'll make you dance.
NONA
NONA
Through touring and writing with various successful bands, Michael Goldman developed a musical aesthetic all his own. NONA is a nod to Goldman's truest self- curious, passionate, under-stated, and even "a little bit out there". Carrying on the namesake of Goldman's grandmother, NONA is an earnest reflection of his Los Angeles rock origins, blending slow-wave Indie rock with surf-like guitar tones and heartfelt vocals.
