  • Motel Radio

    Motel Radio

    Motel Radio is an indie rock band hailing from New Orleans, Louisiana. The band was born out of a songwriting collaboration between college roommates, Ian Wellman and Winston Triolo, that has since grown into a full band consisting of Eric Lloyd (drums), Andrew Pancamo (bass), and David Hart (keys).

    Early writing and recording culminated in the summer of 2015 with the band’s independently released EP “Days and Nights”. The EP earned them supporting slots for national acts such as Drive-By Truckers and Kurt Vile in addition to festival performances at Firefly, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and SXSW among
    others. The band was named “Best Emerging Artist” at the 2016 Big Easy Awards in their home town of New Orleans.

    Motel Radio’s atmospheric, harmony-driven sound and unique dual frontman arrangement garnered the attention of Roll Call Records, who released their EP ‘Desert Surf Films’ in September 2016.

  • Malcolm McRae

    Malcolm McRae

    Exposing a vocal vulnerability and soulfulness reminiscent of artists like Tim Buckley or a young Roy Orbison, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Malcolm McRae’s musical style is unapologetically genuine. Raised in Birmingham, Alabama in a family with a strong musical foundation, McRae found himself volunteered to join a local church’s choir in his elementary years, eventually developing an interest in accompanying himself on guitar early in high school, upon hearing Simon and Garfunkel’s soundtrack for The Graduate. After attending three years of undergraduate architecture school in his home state, and a brief stint living in Rome, Italy, McRae arrived back in the south having decided to drive across the country to LA in search of like-minded artists. There, he connected with “a tastemaker”, who greatly aided his growth, both as a songwriter, and as an adult. He has since been recording a series of songs, to be released later in the year.

  • Willis Avenue

    Willis Avenue

    Willis Avenue is a Los Angeles-based folk duo: singer-songwriter Sami Posner and multi-instrumentalist/singer-songwriter, Matt Levy--two musical word painters who like to harmonize. With different musical backgrounds, the pair finds unity in their passion for storytelling. They came together through a mutual love of American jazz standards. After a night of riffing on classic tunes, they realized their blend was something special and decided to collaborate.

    Their collaboration was easy, flowing, and quickly sparked into their beloved folk project, Willis Avenue. Their work is unlike many in that everything they write is truly collaborative. When one gets an idea, the other helps see it through to fruition. This, and their shared musical vision, is why Sami and Matt regard each other as their greatest musical asset. The two continue to crank out heartfelt songs that marry story-driven lyrics to perfect chords seamlessly. Their fast-growing archive of original material makes for a unique set full of whimsy and universal relatability that they are eager to share. Find their newly-released debut single "Poison" on iTunes and Spotify.

  • Jason Hawk Harris

    Jason Hawk Harris

    Jason Hawk Harris experienced his musical coming of age one fateful day in middle school when a friend played him Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”  Indeed, fate seems writ large in Harris’ artistic journey.  He comes from a long line of musicians; a tradition that all but guaranteed a both passionate and vexed relationship with the guitar.  Though classically trained, he considers it perhaps the greatest instrument ever created (and occasionally wants to smash his Martin over the head of its inventor).

     
    As a young man armed with a healthy prodigality, however, Harris refused to confine his ambitions to six strings.  While his peers were trying to learn stick-shift, Harris was writing choral pieces and obsessing over American avant-garde composers like George Crumb.  These broader horizons led him to earning a BM in musical composition.  But after graduation, the dynastic power of his forebears reasserted its strength, and he returned to his guitar.  He went on to produce the first three albums of Americana/Roots band, The Show Ponies.  He’s played with bluegrass titans like Noam Pikelny and Michael Daves.  The marquees have gotten bigger and the tours longer.  Still, these days Harris often finds himself casting a wishful eye to the past.  He laments the lost opportunity to collaborate with his uncle John Harris, who succumbed to the AIDS virus in 1991.  “He wrote sad country songs about heartbreak, love and shame, “Harris says, “and he sang them like it was the last thing he’d ever do.”
     
    Taking up his uncle’s mantle, Harris’ songs offer nuanced explorations of life’s vagaries; matching determined honesty with vivid imagination.  His upcoming record fuses robust musicianship with a poetic vision inspired by magical realists like Charles Williams and Haruki Murakami.  His music, Harris explains, shares in their “audacious assumption that the physical and spiritual occupy the same plane of existence.”
     
    Harris’ debut single, “The Smoke & The Stars,” produced by Andy Freeman (Eisley, Manchester Orchestra, Rocketboys) will be released on April 28th, 2017.  The single will be part of a larger collection to be released in late in 2017.
