DAVIS
DAVIS
After Davis heard Chuck Berry at the age of 12, he was compelled to pick up his first guitar – a Gibson 335. From California's Inland Empire, music shaped his childhood. Davis immersed himself in the iconic songwriting of such artists as Nirvana, Bob Dylan, and John Lennon, as well as the euphoric melodies of The Strokes and The Libertines. This fusion of musical interests gives Davis a unique sound all his own. His guitar tones are both unique and technical, while his vocal range gives him the freedom to hit Little Richard notes in an effortlessly cool manner. His sound has been compared to everything from Bob Dylan to Arcade Fire; Kings of Leon to Beastie Boys; John Lennon to James Brown.
Davis performs with a full backing band. He delivers Rock & Roll in a way that is both fresh and nostalgic. Currently working on his debut album, Davis hopes to push the Rock & Roll genre forward into new territories, writing honest and modern songs about timeless emotions. Davis has been recording all throughout the U.S., everywhere from an RV trailer park in Utah to the legendary Sound Emporium Studios in Nashville. Davis' writing taps into the history of American youth culture, just as his influences did with their songs. With a nod to the past, Davis looks forward.
Sleep State
Sleep State
Emerging onto the Silver Lake music scene, Los Angeles-based Sleep State is the product of catchy choruses, groovy bass lines and the soulful voice of charismatic frontman, Troy Ritchie.

Their sound features a unique approach to indie-pop, drawing influence anywhere from Motown classics to today's top 40. Sleep State shows an innovative ability to generate a danceable sound that appeals to everyone.

After Ritchie's late 2014 appearance on NBC's The Voice, Sleep State has concentrated their efforts on recording their debut, self-titled EP. On June 1st, 2015, the band released their debut single called "Make A Move". Sleep State is set to release a music video for their second Single, "Tether", this July.
Stereodove
Stereodove
Stereodove is Jason Ledesma, Scott Collins, Brian Bello, and Cameron Good. Their debut alternative album ‘Body Electric’ was released digitally in 2018 on all major streaming services and on Bandcamp for purchase. ‘Body Electric’ is a cathartic, melancholic, and eclectic collection of pop-rock songs, featuring confessional lyrics laced with black humor and dystopian metaphor, angst-ridden grunge-rock guitar noise, and polychromatic synth tones ranging from the euphoric to the utterly abrasive. Based in Long Beach, CA, the band continues to bring their devastating sound to the clubs of Southern California’s indie circuit.
