Johnzo West & The Wayward Souls
Johnzo West & The Wayward Souls
Johnzo West is an Indiana-born singer, songwriter and guitarist based out of Venice, CA. West and his band of fellow Indiana natives, “The Wayward Souls”, specialize in a unique blend of roots rock, soul, blues and psychedelic rock delivering a potent combination of impassioned songwriting with a healthy dose of improvisational exploration showcasing the band’s musical chops and diverse influences.
It’s been a breakout year for JW&TWS with the release of West’s third album HYPERLINK "https://soundcloud.com/johnzowest/sets/the-cause-and-the-cure"The Cause and the Cure and the follow-up single HYPERLINK "https://soundcloud.com/johnzowest/song-for-a-wayward-soul"Song For A Wayward Soul, as well as recent shows at venues like Pappy & Harriet’s, Bootleg Theater, The Grand Ole Echo, El Cid’s Honky Tonk Hacienda (L.A.), Acme Feed & Seed (Nashville), The Hifi (Indianapolis) and live sessions for Daytrotter and HYPERLINK "https://youtu.be/JHiicWcgfhc"Jam In The Van.
With eyes trained on 2016, JW&TWS look forward to bringing their captivating live show to stages far and wide and beginning work on a brand new album.

“West’s voice reminds me of a slightly more polished version of Phosphorescent, think Tom Petty riffs with Eric Clapton level solos.” HYPERLINK "http://nocountryfornewnashville.com/2015/07/09/no-country-presents-johnzo-west-willie-and-the-giant-orlinda-tuesday-july-14-acme-feed-seed/"- No Country For New Nashville

“A shiny new roots band...reminds me of I See Hawks In L.A. and no less than Elvis Costello.” - My Old Kentucky Blog

“The EP’s first single, ‘It Ain’t Right’, is a gorgeously meditative tune with a warm Laurel Canyon vibe.” - NUVO Indy’s Alternative Voice

“Just like the music on his new EP, the Johnzo West live show highlights true musicianship.”
- LA Music Blog
The Bash Dogs
The Bash Dogs
Hailing from Orange County, The Bash Dogs have stuck true to their roots of rock n roll ever since their 5th grade talent show. This power trio consists of half Korean brothers Nate (guitar and lead vocals) and Jeremy Barrett (drums), and groove master Nathan Schmok (bass and backup vocals). Growing up on the legendary classics: Zeppelin, The Doors, Hendrix, and The Beatles, The Bash Dogs have been able to produce a sound just as classic, infectious, and memorable. Writing heavy rock riffs with elements of surf, these boys aim to create a very raw, garage rock n roll sound that will drive their audience absolutely nuts. They make every show a party on the beach with everlasting dance pits and gnarly crowd surfs. “Dance parties are the best parties” as the band says confidently. The band’s dynamic expresses their authentic sound and it will lead them to success. What kinds of bands these days do guitar solos, bass solos, drum solos or even just jam in general? The Bash Dogs do and they will never stop jammin’. People note the total uniqueness of these party animals and hear Jack White, The Black Keys and Wolfmother. The only difference is those bands rock, The Bash Dogs bash.
