    Solwave

    Solwave is a young, energetic quartet, eagerly exploring the full spectrum of rock n’ roll. While youth is on their side, the band has had no shortage of accomplishments in their young history. In February 2013 Solwave recorded with Gordon Raphael, producer of The Strokes, as well as worked with with King Of Leon’s mastering engineer, Richard Dodd.

    While their average age is a mere 22, Joe Collins (keys/ vocals) and the Ferdon brothers (bass and guitar) have been writing songs together for nearly a decade, giving Solwave their biggest asset- a 100-song catalog and vast range. The band’s experience playing together speaks to their genre-blending ability and prolific songwriting. When drummer Moise Seri joined in 2012, the band locked into the groove they were waiting for. Their influence from artists such as Muse, The Killers, and The Strokes also nurtures their not being afraid to explore different styles. However, Solwave digs much deeper into the groove than many of these well-known contemporary pop bands. Solwave brings an element of old school R&B and soul to their rock n’ roll that is well beyond the range of most bands.

    Their live set is certainly not to be missed. Collins possesses the frontman magnetism emblematic of Jim Morrison, while the Ferdon brothers rage furiously across the stage, reminiscent of the Flea-Frusciante tandem. Seri is the clock, pounding his kit with force and ease.

    The energy of these young rockers is certainly not left onstage when the performance ends. Rather, this outfit is fully committed to carving their way through the 21st century matrix of rock n’ roll. In 2012 they brought on their fifth, non-playing member- Mac Walker. Under Walker’s guidance, the band toured California, raised venture capital funding, and completed 2012 with a string of four straight sellouts in their hometown, San Francisco. 2013 has proved no different. Solwave recorded with Raphael in between Southwest and Northwest tours in February and March. Their schedule will not let up as they will keep the momentum rolling with single releases from the Raphael sessions, a debut music video, and continuous touring.

  • Rags & Ribbons

    Rags & Ribbons

    Rags & Ribbons play melodic rock anthems driven by classically-inspired piano. Progressive and post-rock influences by way of Queen, Muse, Arcade Fire and Sigur Ros color these intricate pop songs, expressing desire, yearning, regret and joy like only pop can. This Portland, Oregon band’s debut album, "The Glass Masses" features elaborately structured songs with rich harmonies and dramatic hooks.

    The Gallery

    The Gallery’s bio goes something like this: Hook-laden rock songs that combine a mix of mainstream appeal and professionalism with indie cred and likeability. Their brand of guitar-driven, southern-infused pop rock blurs the lines between authenticity and commerciality, producing songs that are refined and disarmingly catchy. A subtly biting guitar sound, simple, road-worn lyricism and consistently sharp musicianship transform their tracks into instantly memorable pop gems you don’t want out of your head. The foursome, Brendan Cooney (lead vocals/guitar), Ryan Cooney (drums), Dave Mozdzanowski (bass/bg vocals) and Ben Lozano (lead guitar) have maintained their hometown fan base in New England, while building a similar following in Southern Florida, where they resided for three years. In 2009, the band set out on the road for their first national tour – a full 50 dates across 25 different states. Since then, they’ve expanded their fan base across the country, playing shows from Florida to Washington and California to Massachusetts. In the past six months alone, the band has performed with such well-known acts as Rooney, The Maine and We the Kings. The Gallery takes pride in sharing their music and passion with fans at live shows. It’s not hard to see or hear why. - See more at: http://thegallerymusic.com/bio/#sthash.Yjzn5a7r.dpuf
