Caught a Ghost
Caught a Ghost
Caught A Ghost is a foot-stomping, electronic soul outfit led by producer Jesse Nolan, from East Los Angeles, California. Their sound reaches into the past, grabs ahold of images and sounds that resonate, and complements them with modern sonic landscapes and lyrics that are sure to spark the urge to get up and MOVE.

The band’s live show typically consists of a 5 piece band colorfully backdropped by homemade visual treatments that paint vivid landscapes for each song they perform live. The band released their debut album “Human Nature LP” on +1 Records in April 2014, which garnered positive reviews from Rolling Stone, Paste, SPIN, Billboard, USA Today, and Last Call with Carson Daly and more.

Caught A Ghost have performed before thousands of fans in North America and the United Kingdom, with several sold out performances in the United States. You may have heard his music on television alongside ads for Miller Lite and BMW, or in shows Vampire Diaries, The Blacklist, Boardwalk Empire, Suits.

Caught A Ghost is putting the final touches on a followup album and will release the first single "VICTORY LAP" in Summer 2017 worldwide on their DIY label, Weed & Coffee.
Warbly Jets
Warbly Jets
'New York-born, Los Angeles-based Warbly Jets are here to revive rock music from it's indisputable funk. The newly released track "Psychomanteum" takes you on a pleasant journey inside yourself and showcases what the band means when they say they're "coming for your ears, your money, your girlfriends, your faces." Flirtatious guitar riffs, buoyant drums, and introspective lyrics meet to create a raw and natural sound which is much needed in today's musical landscape. The highlight of the song for us is the slowed down, tripped out bridge which takes you down a well of echoey vocals and guitar. It's the perfect tempo to get your headbang or your hippie sway on, throw your lighter up, and get lost in a groove. Just when it feels like you're about to get completely submersed in the waters of your own mind forever, the Jets shoot you back out to the surface for some fresh air. Fuzzy guitars and bouncing drums lead the way for the final chorus, marching you back out into everyday life.' - WE THE BEAT
FYOHNA
FYOHNA
To sing about being wronged is one thing, but to speak the truth with the emotional presence, grace, and clarity that FYOHNA—the duo of Katarina Gleicher and producer Elliot Glasser—does is another that one doesn’t find so often. It is this bareness as it is met with a sort of triumphant musical buoyancy that makes FYOHNA’s sound so special. A novel blend of warm synths à la James Blake and sequenced drums that pull from the expansiveness of trap, the complexity of west african rhythms, and the moods of trip hop equally. Songs are reminiscent of the more reflective singer- songwriters of the past decade—amongst Feist, St. Vincent, and Cat Power—and atmospheres range from the catchy sweetness found in singles “Believe You” and “Ghost Heart” to the mellow brooding that carries the songs “Misjudged” and “Lucy Lou.”

'Eye-watering brilliance. He hits you right to the core'

- BBC Radio 1

'An arresting, BIG voice with an amazing range. Definitely one to watch'

- MEDIAN Reviews

'A depth not often seen in young musicians. Powerful. Haunting. Remarkably good' - The Equal Ground





Leo James Conroy is a British singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based in Los Angeles, CA. Soulful vocals, jazz-inspired trumpet loops and a warm electric guitar tone form the backbone of a sound deemed 'eye-watering brilliance' by BBC Radio 1.

Conroy's distinct sound is the result of a lifelong obsession with music. A proud northerner, raised in the working class brass band scene of northern England, he has since gone on to become an accomplished conductor, composer and featured artist in jazz bands, orchestras and gospel choirs around the world. Rolling such a varied skill set into one musician lands us with a songsmith whose only focus is to create 'evocative, haunting music built on soulful deliveries'.

Lyrically, much of Conroy's music highlights 'my constant state of inner turmoil...and quest for self-love' following an 'abandonment of faith' after a dark period in his personal life. This is disguised well in his writing and delivery, though; 'I make a point of writing and rewriting every song until it is simultaneously a standalone chapter for me and a story with lots of possible endings for everyone else'.

With an incredibly versatile voice and warm, expressive horn playing, Leo James Conroy is quickly garnering fans in his new homeland of Los Angeles. Currently recording his latest record, expect new music soon.
Francisco Fernandez And The Ferocious Few
Francisco Fernandez And The Ferocious Few
Francisco Fernandez has been the bucking force behind his unstoppable outlaw cowboy band for the last ten years. His punkabilly roadhouse rock and roll has commanded attention anywhere he plays, charging upwards from the streets of San Francisco to eventually headlining SF’s The Great American Music Hall and opening for Cyndi Lauper on her Memphis Blues tour.
Francisco’s been busier than ever these days, headlining Lightning in a Bottle, LA’s The Mint and House of Blues, and many other festivals and venues on the west coast this summer.
Now The Ferocious Few is making music their full time job, touring endlessly in a Prius with their mind set on playing for as many people as possible.
With thousands of Facebook fans demanding they play around the country, help them give people what they want: Rock & roll with as much soul as grit.
