VANDELLA
VANDELLA
SF’s Vandella is a lovechild of rock & roll, roots & soul, helmed by two enigmatic frontpeople and distinct songwriters. A modern-day Buckingham-Nicks, vocalist Tracey Holland and guitarist Chris Tye mix up a potent potion of sexy, sweaty 70s-era rock & roll. A package of Rolling Stones rock-meets-Alabama Shakes soul, the two met while both studying music in LA and spent the subsequent years traveling up and down the West Coast, honing their individual signatures and tying them together to form Vandella. Garnering comparisons to Stevie Nicks and Janis Joplin, Holland is a powerhouse of a frontwoman, whose vocal prowess is matched only by her insistent command of the stage. As writers, Holland is at times intense and bewitching; tempered by the understated, perennially-cool air of her counterpart in Tye. The result is a sound that feels both exciting yet effortlessly vibey - evocative of that hazy sheen of their native California.

Vandella’s 2009 debut EP, V, saw the band move 2,000 copies independently, and in May 2012, with several West Coast tours completed, they released the full-length Fire in the Desert. For their 2014 follow-up, the band teamed up with SF producer Scott McDowell at his Hyde Street Studio C and released a 12-inch, 4-song EP titled Shine You Up. Shine You Up captured the basement-party, Exile On Main Street-esque style that the band has come to be known for in live shows, and established Vandella as a fixture on SF’s indie-rock/soul scene. Vandella’s newest EP, Strange Calls, was released on April 28th, 2016, with the first single, A Feeling I’d Forgotten, premiered on the Huffington Post. They will be closing out 2016 with a summer tour and celebrating the single release of their forthcoming single, Couldn't Quit It, at The Independent in San Francisco on September 15th.
Rob Leines
Rob Leines
Rob Leines' music originated in the Southeast within the Appalachian Mountains. With the influence of Country, Rock and Roll, and Blues, his unique Americana sound was born on the hills of Tennessee. Soon after Rob toured in 2012 throughout the Southeast, he expanded his music to the West. While welding and metal working for the oil and gas industry along the pacific coast, Rob's music took on a more raw and gritty side. The blue collar lifestyle and southern roots make for a genuine representation of the American songwriter through his "Foot Stompin' Music". Rob Leines is currently based in Los Angeles, and just finished tracking his upcoming full album "Drive On".
