Onward, ETC.
Onward, ETC.
Onward, etc. is a musical project put together by Rosco Wuestewald. Leaving the midwest at an early age, he started a journey traveling around the world which has developed into a project known as Onward, etc. The project connects musicians located throughout the country, enabling each tour and show be completely unique based on the different band members and the location of the stage. Onward, etc. project has been successful as the cyclone of musicians have acquired components and companions in nearly every state in the country. They have played with a dream-come-true list of bands featuring: Larry and His Flask, Skinny Lister, Lucero, Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, The Goddamn Gallows, Reverend Horton Heat, Murder By Death, Rusted Root and many more. They have been a part of Coachella, Bonnaroo, Floyd Fest, SummerFest, Vans Warped Tour, SE Alaskan State Fair, and venues both intimate and rowdy throughout the U.S. & Europe. This caught the eye of DC Jam Records who signed them in 2014. Onward, etc. lives by their name as they forge onward created the album "Sonder On" with DC Jam Records and Derek Obrien (Social Distortion, D.O.B Sounds) They released the album in March 2014 and have been ripping up the road with it since. Successfully doing a handful of US headlining tours including the Vans Warped Tour '15 and one European tour. As they march forcefully into the new year there are hints at a new release and lots and lots of touring to come.

"it is hard to grasp how a body in constant motion can be a unifying force. These guys are an example of such a force. Spinning through the world, half musicians, half tornadoes, they carry with them a uniquely contagious will to live. Not in the sense of staying alive - far from it - but rather in living each day fearlessly, creatively, spontaneously and generously. I was fortunate enough to spend two weeks on the road with them this year, and continue to find inspiration in their music."
States & Capitals
States & Capitals
From a basement in New Jersey to new LA digs, States & Capitals is a project by 21-year old Richie Arthur. For the past year and a half, Richie has been tucked away in a home studio in Los Angeles, California crafting an Alternative sound. Finished demos sent Richie on a trip to Nashville, TN in the spring of 2017 to collaborate with Jonathan Roye (Owl City, Kelsea Ballerini, Forever The Sickest Kids). The result would be the six-track, “CREATIONS&MEMORIES (EP)” a collaborative effort between Richie and Jon.

The band let go of the debut single “Drive” on August 4th, 2017, the follow-up single “Jumping In Front Of These Cars” on October 27th, 2017, and "Take Me Back For The Night" February 23rd, 2018. The C&M EP was released March 9, 2018, via JIRNY, LLC/STEM, and is now available at all major digital retail and streaming outlets.

States & Capitals kicked off the first leg of the 2018 CREATIONS&MEMORIES TOUR on March 7, 2018, at The Study in Los Angeles, CA continuing throughout the mid-west (including SXSW Showcase, Southwest Invasion), and ending at Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA. On April 10, 2018, the band announced the second leg of the tour, which will include the entire US kicking off on July 5, 2018.
Caleb Trask
Caleb Trask
Caleb Trask drinks deep from the the desert folk-rock traditions of Los Angeles, finding inspiration also in the wider American musical and literary canon. Fans of California folk-rockers from Jackson Browne to Connor Oberst, as well as those of songwriters like Noah Gundersen and Josh Ritter, will recognize a tender violence in his sound that puts lyrics at the center.
The Across the Water EP was featured in Noisetrade's New & Notable releases of 2017, where they called it “A promising debut effort from one of Los Angeles’ sincerest emerging singer-songwriters.” The EP is transcontinental from conception—the songs were penned on the banks of the Amazon delta, but they yearn homeward, toward the hills and coastline of California.

Trask is currently at work on a full-length record with producer Chris Schlarb at BIG EGO Studios in Long Beach, CA with a projected 2019 release.
The Lavender Scare
The Lavender Scare
The Lavender Scare is an ambitious indie rock band from Los Angeles, CA. Singer and songwriter James Delos Reyes croons his way through heavy, brooding melodies with a vocal delivery that draws comparisons to Nick Cave and Tom Waits. The band effortlessly blends catchy melodies and dense arrangements with lyrics that provide thoughtful political and religious commentary that's relevant to the times. Their first single "Drag for a Queen," a pro-LGBT satire centered around a religious ex-drag queen, does not shy away from controversy. The Lavender Scare's music is just short of a miracle as even fundamentalists will secretly be tapping their toes while shaking their fists.
