David Rosales & His Band of Scoundrels
“…invoking elements of R&B, gospel, rock, and western influences to dust
things up with a helping of soulful grit.”
– popMatters

“…epitomizes Americana folk, country, and blues.”
– NY Music Examiner

“…sweetly optimistic and fun-loving…”
– Guitar World Magazine

With his rich baritone vocal and hopeful melodies, Los Angeles-native,
David Rosales, comes from a place of deep content and shining optimism
in his debut album, Brave Ones, released on April 27th, 2018.

Drawing on the wide-open spaces of the Southwest and the smooth textures
of the Pacific Ocean, David Rosales & His Band of Scoundrels seamlessly
weave an alluring landscape of American roots music when translating the
album in a live setting. A sound that pairs well with contemporaries
they have shared the stage with in Ben Harper, Matt Costa, The White
Buffalo, Donavon Frankenreiter and Steep Canyon Rangers.

It’s impossible to deny the warmth and ease of Rosales’ songwriting
prowess throughout the 11 tracks as he seamlessly blends his vintage
sonic tastes with fresh vision. Crediting his love of classic Rhythm &
Blues and Country & Western singers Sam Cooke, Ray Charles and Johnny
Cash, coupled with his admiration for modern day troubadours the likes
of Ryan Adams, Amos Lee, Nathaniel Rateliff and Afie Jurvanen (Bahamas)
as being influential in the writing and recording process.

Brave Ones marks Rosales’ third collaboration with Co-Producer, friend
and Donavon Frankenreiter sideman, Matt Grundy. Looking for a change in
scenery, the duo recorded at Super Bloom Studios —a log cabin studio
that rests on the edge of the wind-swept expanse known as the Mojave
Desert in the shadow of California’s Mount San Antonio. The duo thrived
in this remote location, which became an unequivocal inspiration for the
recording sessions.

Gardeners Logic
Gardeners Logic
Gardeners Logic started out as the solo project of Ian Bailey back in 2008. Two demos were recorded with Mike Willson in his home studio. They were never released. The project took a back seat while Ian joined The Counter Regiment with Mike Willson and Gary Westmoreland. The band gave it a go for three years before deciding to focus more on production and engineering. The three of them opened up Music and Arts Production Studio (MAPS) in Huntington Beach, CA. All along Ian was writing and recording as Gardeners Logic on his laptop. During the winter of 2011 the project inevitably found it's way out of the bedroom and into the studio where Mike Willson joined the project on drums as well as producer for the first self titled release. Gardeners Logic broke free on the web June 3rd of 2012. The players on the record consisted of friends and local talent including Gary Westmoreland, Chris Rushman, Nate Lown, and Liliana Frandsen, just to name a few. The live band soon took shape with a large rotating line up of friends such as Jimmy Hua (Big Monsta), Gary Westmoreland, Garrett Richenbauch, and Russell Osborne (Those Guys). The band played with anywhere from 5 to 7 players making every show a rowdy and unique experience. After a residency at Costa Mesa's Detroit Bar they caught the eye of Vince Phung (Sound Engineer, Multi-instrumentalist, producer) who soon took on the role as one of the bands guitarists. After a slew of Local shows the band found it's niche as a four piece. The line up was Ian Bailey, Mike Willson, Vince Phung, and depending on the date Collin Breedlove or Chris Booke (Swing Cats Big Band, Session Player) on bass. During January of 2013 the band hit the road for a two week west coast tour. The band has since been back in the studio with the line up of Ian Bailey, Mike Willson, and Vince Phung. They currently have the monday night residency for the month of april leading up to their EP release show. They are currently finishing their second release titled "The La Habra EP" that will be released in physical and digital formats on April 29th, 2013. They will tour with Big Monsta June of 2013 in support of both their releases "Gardeners Logic" and "The La Habra EP".
