Don't miss Update #1 

Cultural Vultures 

Life will eventually bring us all to the point of opposition. We then forge ourselves awake in the envy of an entire generation. Each of us will enquire our own fearful disillusionment, with the purpose being lost along with the purity of love. In its entropy we then find the quintessence of a life filled with passion. The avarice of our society that keeps us hidden from our own true potential. Love your life and live it the only way you know how, to the point where it scares you. Find your passions and exploit them, but be mindful of each other. The music is heartbreak, not just from love and relationships, but when life stops giving you things and starts taking them away. The struggles of humans, and the relationships we have with nature, religion, love and most of all each other. It is up to each of us to invent our own beautiful life, to find our passions with a voracious intensity. Find the confidence in yourself to dream, and find the peace that will set us all free.

Gary Lazer Eyes

Although currently based out of Orlando, Gary Lazer Eyes was founded by three Melbourne, FL natives. Since their not-so-serious formation in 2015, this eclectic band has grown in sound and reach. After being voted Orlando’s “Best Rock Act” in Best of Orlando 2016, GLE released High On Lies. On this EP, they explore a more alternative territory, while still managing to reflect their reggae & blues rock roots.

To support the release of this project, Gary Lazer Eyes embarked on a cross country, DIY tour. Upon returning home and playing a few “welcome back to Florida” shows, the boys received a warm reception (literally- Florida boys should stay in FL during the winter). Since then, the consistent regional touring and release of new content hasn’t stopped, quickly earning GLE a reputation in the Central FL community and beyond.

For Gary Lazer Eyes, community is an essential part of their journey. The threesome (now five) solidified while collaborating on Do-It-Yourself events featuring live music, local visual artists, and fashion vendors/brands. It was out of these collaborations that GLE was born. Leaning on the idea that music is an interdependent relationship (i.e. a song is not done until some one else hears it), the goal of their musical endeavors is not simply to create, but to connect with the people around them. All this, while still managing to have an awesome time – embracing debauchery.

Andrea Leigh Mathews

Three Way Street is a Folk/Indie/Rock band based out of West Michigan. Their love of high energy live performance has earned them a loyal following in the short time they have worked together. Lead by Andrea Mathews’ powerful vocals, the driving rhythm section of Bradley Rose and Jeffrey Baldus sets the dancers in motion to the sweet melodies of Chris Brock’s lead guitar. This band prides itself on not being just another bar band, blending a unique take on classic folk and contemporary covers with original material that keeps audiences entertained and surprised.

Bree And The Whatevers

Brooklyn based Bree And The Whatevers is a project spawned from the songwriting and musical vision of legally blind powerhouse vocalist Bree Klauser. The core of this collaboration is Bree and her partner Dan Kessler (co writer and multi instrumentalist). Their soulful vibe, paired with a cabaret aesthetic, create a high energy cathartic entertainment experience and in general a sexy fun time!

Bree And The Whatevers' Debut music video "Homewrecker" the title track of the forthcoming EP, was released in December 2016.

The Nearly Deads

Led by the inimitable vocalist Theresa Jeane along with Steven Tobi (guitar), Kevin Koelsch (bass), Javier Garza Jr. (guitar) and Josh Perrone (drums), The Nearly Deads are one of the hottest, rising rock bands to come out of Nashville. The band became a viral sensation with their break out, zombie infused music video for the single "Never Look Back"; as a result, their fans dubbed themselves "Zombies", creating The Nearly Deads #ZombieNation. The band’s amalgam of powerful pop vocals and aggressive alternative rock music combined with their love of all things geek and messages of positivity and empowerment creates a truly unique style that’s garnering attention from media and fans around the world.

The band is currently gaining massive traction with their smash hit song “My Evil Ways.”

Coopertheband

Coopertheband (all one word) is a  bramily (band/friends/family) composed of six massive music nerds with minds to rhyme and twelve hot feet. Centered in Jackson, TN, the band has found success nationally, featured on networks like HBO, ESPN, and TruTV as well as the hit show “Without a Trace.”  Coopertheband is also hugely plugged into the local music scene and often finds itself on podcasts, regional television shows, and the occasional old-fashioned newspaper article. To date, Coopertheband has released three albums - Venture (2010), Kings EP (2012), and most recently, Kingdoms (2017) - now available everywhere.

 

Scott Evans

Scott Evans has come back from the dead. Twice. Not figuratively. He was literally medically dead twice before the age of 22. Certain that music is what he is meant to do, after two times dancing through the space between life and death, there are few who will doubt this sense of purpose. It is also no surprise that one who has been so close to death makes music that is so vigorously, pleadingly resolute about living life while we have it. Evans has this urgency of life latent in his work, and telegraphs this message with a sound akin to a meld of Ryan Adams, Pink Floyd, and Tom Petty.

To relay the significance of his art, and life itself, Evans has teamed with Grammy-winning producer Noel Golden (who has worked with Matchbox Twenty, Willie Nelson, Sister Hazel, Edwin McCain, and others) to produce the 8-song EP, CIVILIZED, available at Evans' live shows and special appearances.

WD-HAN

WD-HAN is an alternative indie rock band based in Tampa Bay, Florida. The band took its original form with Cal Henry on guitar, jamming and writing with high school friends. In need of a name, WD-HAN (“We Don’t Have A Name”) was considered and loved instantly.

Over the following years as the band continued to write new music and play bigger and better gigs they started to build a following. With the addition of Lea Campbell on drums and Spencer Barnes as the band’s front man, they developed their own kind of pop rock sound heavily influenced by a love of classic rock and blues.
