"...the one thing that has been missing, I want to provide. Am I the light at the end of the tunnel? No, every hour of every day I am digging a tunnel. And there is no light in this tunnel because I’m digging it, going deeper all the time. I’ll be digging forever, but if you want to follow, you can."

..."Listening back to some of these songs made me realize what I was really writing about... what was underneath it all," continues Myers, who grew up in a Jehovah's Witness household before breaking free to pursue music in L.A. at the age of 19. "All of a sudden it all made sense to me and that moment of realization just overwhelmed me with a flood of tears and joy. On the surface, I thought I was writing about love loss but I've learned it goes much deeper than that. It's going back to the child in me that needed to be healed. I've always written from a true place, but in getting to know myself better, I'm now writing from an even deeper level of honesty."...

MANSIONAIR
Glassnote Records

 ARTIST IMAGE

Aligned to the front of the stage at live shows, the trio of singer Jack Froggatt, guitarist and producer Lachlan Bostock and drummer and producer Alex Nicholls constructs a textured electronic world from its distinct parts. Introverted tales meet careering sing-along choruses; live and programmed sounds meld and bend to joyful and downhearted tangents. Theirs is a collaboration equal and assured; it’s near impossible to believe that when the Sydney group first found international attention with the viral ‘Hold Me Down’, two of Mansionair’s members had never even met.

“It’s like a classic rock and roll cliché,” Mona frontman Nick Brown says with a laugh. “My father was a pastor and I was raised in the Assembly of God, the same church as Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash. There’s some mystic magic that’s involved with any kind of religion that believes in emotion and art the way they do. Singing and dancing isn’t entertainment for them. They’re responding to something they believe is much bigger than themselves.”

SILENT RIVAL
Listen Loud Records

 ARTIST IMAGE

Los Angeles based Silent Rival – Sara Coda (vocals), Joz Ramirez (guitar), Yutaka Sao (bass) – claim three different countries and exponentially more musical sensibilities.  Born and raised in Orange County, Coda channels the soul of Gladys Knight through Steven Tyler-style swagger and bravado.  Hailing from Mexico, Joz draws heavily on nineties British garage-rock punctuated by just the right amount of glam, while Yutaka crossed the Pacific from Japan in order to chase his musical dream.  Each one brings something distinct, dynamic and definitive to the fold

NAKED GIANTS
New West Records

 ARTIST IMAGE

Formed in 2015, the Seattle trio – guitarist/vocalist Grant Mullen, bassist/vocalist Gianni Aiello and drummer Henry LaVallee – put out debut EP R.I.P. the following year and have been steadily building up their reputation as a live act in the meantime, and having as much fun as possible while doing it. Because as much as the three-piece – who are all in their very early 20s now – have their heads screwed on and are fiercely intelligent people, they also want to let loose and enjoy being in a band. After all, that’s kind of what being in a band with your closest friends is all about.

CAROLINE ROSE
New West Records

 ARTIST IMAGE

An obsession with money, an unfaithful lover, a friend’s accidental pregnancy, misogyny, loneliness, death… This is just some of the lighthearted subject matter that make up LONER ––the darkly comedic second album from songwriter/producer Caroline Rose. Armed with an arsenal of new instruments and equipment, an ever-growing sense of “ahhh fuck it,” two years of exploration, and a wicked sense of humor, Rose delivers a set of serious songs wrapped in a sprightly, angsty pop burrito. Because, as Rose puts it, “Sometimes sad songs just need a cocktail.”

AMERICAN AUTHORS
Island Records

 ARTIST IMAGE

Comprised of Zac Barnett (vocals), James Adam Shelley (guitar/banjo), Dave Rublin (bass), and Matt Sanchez (drums), the guys met while attending Berklee College of Music and quickly inked a deal with Island Records in 2012 after relocating to New York. Oh, What a Life, the band's first long-player released in early 2014, gave us "Believer" and their eventual breakthrough hit "Best Day of My Life," which went 3x platinum, and quickly peaked on the Billboard 200 at number 14. In 2016, their follow-up studio album What We Live For, boasted another Top 20 hit, "Go Big or Go Home."

MONDO COZMO

 Everything changed for Mondo Cozmo in 2016. Born in Philadelphia and now based in East Los Angeles, he quit his two landscaping jobs, raised a big middle finger to all opposition, and began releasing songs that could’ve been cut under the influence of a “Champagne Supernova” inside a Seattle warehouse if this were the nineties…but it’s not. A disciple of Beck, Eddie Vedder, and Keith Richards, the song “Shine” introduced this tattooed underground pop outlier to audiences at large.

WALLOWS

 ARTIST IMAGE

Wallows singers/guitarists Braeden Lemasters, Dylan Minnette, and drummer Cole Preston have been playing in groups together since they were 11, starting out at a San Fernando Valley music program, Join the Band. Nearly a decade later, the trio are about to release their major label debut on Atlantic Records, Spring, a collection of six new songs that wear their pop-rock hearts on their collective sleeves. Inspired equally by their adopted love of classic rock (Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Stones), alt/indie faves (The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, Vampire Weekend, Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon, St. Vincent, Alvvays) and their own idiosyncratic tastes (which range from Mac DeMarco, [Sandy] Alex G and The Garden to Frank Ocean, Steve Lacy and Tyler, The Creator), Wallows’ fresh new sound revitalizes rock music for a new generation.

Leather clad Austin rockers Culture Wars hate wasting time. The trio’s first Alan Moulder-blessed single Money (Gimmie, Gimmie) has “come blazing out of the gate with an addictive electro-rock sound and swagger” according to PopMatters.  Their five-song debut Culture Wars EP is pure adrenaline with production by longtime collaborator Robert Sewell and mixing by Manny Marroquin (Kanye West, Imagine Dragons) and Alan Moulder (The Killers, Nine Inch Nails). The debut release soundly and quickly establishes Culture Wars as a band with their own unique style and vibe.

EVERYTHING EVERYTHING

Across three albums, immense acclaim and intense adoration, the sound of Everything Everything has remained a volatile beast; a musical bucking bronco, their albums maximalist, frenetic, art-pop juxtapositions of R’n’B and melancholia and Afrobeat, of synths, guitars, falsetto. Critics have written of the frenzy of it, of the sheer sublime sweet sensory overload of it all.

Metric’s remarkable journey has seen them collaborate and record with Lou Reed, perform with the Rolling Stones and even entertain the Queen of England. In 2009, the band broke with convention, turned away from the industry establishment and self-released their 4th studio album Fantasies, which went on to sell over 500,000 albums and millions of singles worldwide, as Metric exploded

on to the international stage. Metric became the first band in history to have a Top 20 hit at US commercial radio without the backing of a label. Almost overnight, they found themselves headlining tours around the world. Fantasies won a plethora of awards, including Group of the Year and Album of the Year at their native Juno Awards. Songs from that album were placed dozens of times in Hollywood movies and top TV shows from Grey’s Anatomy to CSI, amongst many. The theme song Metric wrote for the cult hit Scott Pilgrim vs. The World featuring Michael Cera caught the eye of the legendary composer Howard Shore who invited the band to collaborate with him on writing the official theme song and score music for the Twilight saga's blockbuster film Eclipse, for which the music

was nominated for both Grammy and Oscar awards. The band later collaborated again with Shore to write the original score for the David Cronenberg film Cosmopolis.
