Joe Fletcher, Anna Hoone

ABOUT JOE FLETCHER-- Joe Fletcher is a midwestern born, New England raised singer-songwriter living in East Nashville, TN. He released his third independent record, You've Got the Wrong Man, in October of 2014. This intimate solo album is a departure from his previous efforts with his band The Wrong Reasons (White Lighter and Bury Your Problems). Made up of his gritty original songs as well as covers by his peers Brown Bird and Toy Soldiers, it was recorded live over a few months on a mobile recording unit in Rhode Island, Georgia, and Tennessee in the spirit of some of Joe's favorite records by Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, Jimmie Rodgers, and Bruce Springsteen among others. Now a four year veteran of the Newport Folk Festival, Joe has toured with The Devil Makes Three, Band of Heathens, Deer Tick and has opened for the likes Jason Isbell, Lucero, Robert Ellis, John Doe, The Low Anthem, and many more. Joe spends most of his time touring in what has truly been a grass roots operation thus far.

ABOUT ANNA HOONE-- Anna Hoone is a songsmith, singer, and revelator. Rooted in old-time gospel, country, and folk traditions, Anna's classic Americana is influenced by the staggering beauty of the landscape around her and a certain ever-present longing for home and companionship. Her stark, straightforward lyrics reflect universal truths about the hardships and trials we all face. Her precise delivery shoots like an arrow straight to the heart. Anna's voice is soft and lilting, with an edge that comes from having lived the words she sings. Anna grew up in rural southern Oregon, and has called Kentucky and Montana home at one point or another. She has studied music in Senegal and Austria, and discovered that no matter where you go, the truth of the song is what matters most. Currently based out of Portland, OR, Anna lives in a tiny trailer where most of these songs are crafted. When not making music, Anna is a hermit and a homebody who loves to knit, cook, and garden.

Strictly Platonic, Bone Canyon

ABOUT STRICTLY PLATONIC-- When you feel like you've got nowhere to turn and all hope might be lost, 3 individuals forged a bond to save the world from boring music. And that's what Strictly Platonic has fallen into.

ABOUT BONE CANYON-- With big riffs driven by a whirlwind of hair and sweat, Honolulu's Bone Canyon proves that living in paradise does not dull the intensity of their modern metal sound. Formed in late 2012, vocalist Venus Trombley, guitarist/vocalist Ray Kan, bassist Mike Yeung, and drummer Kevin 'T-bone' Boehning met while playing shows at numerous venues around the island with their former bands Wicked Scarlet, Rolling Fire, and Big Toe. Fueled by a common love of rock and metal, they set out to write original material filtered through their combined influences to produce songs that are heavy, challenging, and accessible. The result is a sound that combines the aggression of Thrash, the groove of Stoner, and the experimentation of Progressive Metal. Having recorded and released 4 songs including crowd favorites "Splinters" and "Within Without" which have received airplay on Honolulu Rock station K-Rock 101.5 FM, Bone Canyon are in the process of writing and recording additional material for a full CD release in Fall 2015. In between song writing and recording, Bone Canyon has played shows at several Oahu music venues including Crossroads at Hawaiian Brian's, Station Bar, Rock Bottom, Kemo'o Farms, Rivals, and Kualoa Ranch in addition to having recently returned from a tour of the Pacific Northwest in January 2015 including shows in Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington. Bone Canyon achieved a career highlight when they were tapped to open for Metal giants Mastodon at the famed Honolulu concert venue The Republik on April 4, 2015.

State Champs, Neck Deep, Knuckle Puck, Like Pacific

ABOUT STATE CHAMPS -- Albany, New York-based pop-punk band State Champs began in 2010, basing their quick-paced and emotive sound on the influence of masters of the genre like Fall Out Boy, the Story So Far, and New Found Glory. Based around singer Derek Discanio's wailing vocals, the band was filled out by guitarists Tyler Szalkowski and Tony Diaz and bassist William Goodermote; they were eventually joined by drummer Evan Ambrosio. After a demo circulated, the band released the Overslept EP in late 2012, and followed with full-length The Finer Things in 2013. An acoustic revamp of The Finer Things -- The Acoustic Things EP -- was released in late 2014. A year later, the band released their second LP, Around the World and Back, on Pure Noise Records. Bio by Fred Thomas

ABOUT NECK DEEP -- Welsh pop-punks Neck Deep formed in 2012 as the D.I.Y. project of singer Ben Barlow and guitarist Lloyd Roberts. After testing the water with a couple of self-released online tracks, they issued their first EP, Rain in July, in late 2012. Part of the wave of pop-punk revival acts, Neck Deep cited influences like Fall Out Boy, New Found Glory, and Sum 41, offering an updated version of the genre's classic sound. Wanting to expand their capabilities, Barlow and Roberts enlisted friends from the local scene to complete their lineup. Matt West joined on guitar, Fil Thorpe-Evans became their bassist, and Dani Washington joined as drummer. Their second EP, 2013's A History of Bad Decisions, garnered enough attention to bring them to the U.S. for their first international shows where they caught the attention several major labels. Neck Deep signed with Hopeless Records in August 2013 and, just a few months later in January 2014, issued their debut album, Wishful Thinking. The album was well-received and they spent much of 2014 touring the U.K. and the U.S. supporting bands like We Are the In Crowd and Knuckle Puck, and joining the Vans Warped Tour for a stint. Their sophomore LP, Life's Not Out to Get You, arrived in August 2015. Bio by Timothy Monger

Suburban Vermin, As The Moon, Prosody

ABOUT SUBURBAN VERMIN -- It's hard to produce something original in a city known for breaking the musical mold, but that's exactly what Seattle's Suburban Vermin has done with their crunchy punk sound.

ABOUT AS THE MOON -- Some strive to imitate. Some strive to innovate. As The Moon only strives to be genuine. Regardless of whether they're churning out pop/rock hits reminiscent of 90s rock greats, head banging tunes in modern form, 60's-tinged ballads, or blazing new musical paths, As The Moon delivers their semi-eclectic rock-pop fusion with a confidence that insists that the music they write comes from somewhere deep within. That being said, As The Moon is often described as a Rock/Pop Rock band and can be compared with bands such as: Smashing Pumpkins, Marilyn Manson, 30 Seconds to Mars, System of a Down, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Collective Soul, Three Days Grace, Shinedown, Nine Inch Nails, Velvet Revolver, Rob Zombie, etc

ABOUT PROSODY-- The band first formed in late September of 2014 when frontman Travis Bratton who had recently moved from Hermiston Oregon, posted an ad looking for fellow rockers to take part in an upcoming project. In response, Spokane Washington native Brandon Martinez responded and once approved for the project, the two began writing and re-creating songs Bratton had previously written. A month into the project, the duo with the help of local audio engineer Alex Huston, recorded two tracks,"Happy" and "Undo" to showcase to local musicians and fill the void of a missing drummer. One week and a dozen responses later, talented drummer of ten years (and Portland native) Joey Rivera auditioned and cemented the line up. With a full band in motion, the trio with the help of local band "When We Met" booked their first performance at the famous Analog theater located in the heart of the industrial neighborhood of Portland. Prosody has since performed countless gigs and finished recording their debut E.P. "Happy" which will be released later this spring. For more information on Prosody, You can check them out on Facebook and Reverbnation for show postings, merchandise release, and listening samples.

The Wonder Years, Letlive, Tiny Moving Parts, Microwave

ABOUT THE WONDER YEARS -- Taking its name from the TV show The Wonder Years, the Philadelphia punk pop band was formed by guitarists Matt Brasch and Casey Cavaliere, vocalist Dan "Soupy" Campbell, bassist Josh Martin, drummer Mike Kennedy, and keyboardist Mikey Kelly. The sextet got its start in 2005 when previous combo the Premier split up. Regrouping under the new name, the band began playing shows and released two split singles that year (with Bangarang! and Emergency and I). In late 2007, the Wonder Years self-released an album, the emphatically titled Get Stoked on It!, and quickly caught the eye of California label No Sleep, which signed the band. Their first record for the label was the EP Won't Be Pathetic Forever, which came out in June of 2008. Following a split single with All or Nothing, Kelly left the band. After a year spent recording its second album, the group released The Upsides in January of 2010. The record made a dent in the lower regions of the Billboard charts, and also gained the Wonder Years a deal with the larger indie Hopeless, which reissued the album in September with four bonus tracks. In the time between releases, drummer Kennedy quit the band and was replaced by Nick Steinborn. Kennedy soon returned to the fold and Steinborn bounced over to play keys and guitar. With the lineup solidified, the Wonder Years got to work on their next album with producer Steve Evetts. In 2011, they released their third album, Suburbia I've Given You All and Now I'm Nothing, followed by the arrival of a B-sides compilation, Sleeping on Trash, as well as their fourth full-length album, The Greatest Generation, in 2013. The following year, lead singer Campbell released his first album with his solo project Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties, We Don't Have Each Other, with Campbell adopting the persona of Aaron West in his songs. After Campbell returned from a tour with the Roaring Twenties, he began working on songs for the next Wonder Years project, but suffered a powerful case of writer's block that triggered a severe bout with depression. Campbell eventually channeled the emotions stirred up by his struggles into the group's fifth studio album, 2015's No Closer to Heaven, a concept piece about coming to terms with the death of a loved one.

'Slow Spaces' Tour
Lowercase Noises, Hotel Neon, Coastlands

ABOUT LOWERCASE NOISES-- Lowercase Noises is the musical brainchild of Andy Othling, a multi-instrumentalist, producer and artist from Albuquerque, NM. All programming and composition on Lowercase Noises' albums are performed by Andy, with exception of the occasional guest musician or vocalist. Lowercase Noises was birthed out of a small college dorm with very basic recording gear, a slew of effects pedals and an electric guitar. As Andy's passion for and interest in the recording/mixing process bloomed, along with his talent for producing, songs and styles emerged that built the framework for what Lowercase Noises is today. His first serious effort and full-length release, Seafront (Nov. 2009), was a unique blend of styles, including ambient, post- rock and electronica, as well as intriguing dialogue and field recordings. Marshall (May 2010), named after and written for Andy's son, is ambient at it's best; smooth-moving, quiet melodies that ease the listener from one song to the next in a truly lullaby-like quality. Next came Ambient Songs (Aug. 2010), to tide fans over until the next studio album; a collection of simpler, 'live' recordings taken from Andy's acclaimed YouTube videos that expressed his ability to perform what were essentially improvised songs. Carry Us All Away (Dec. 2010) was a true milestone in Lowercase Noises' career. An appropriate follow-up to the two 'quieter' previous releases, Carry Us All Away aims for nothing shy of epic, displaying Andy at the top of his form. The album opens with a fantastic bang, then carries the listener through 45 more minutes of bliss, dipping occasionally to lovely ambient swoons, then vamping back into satisfyingly big beats and driving melodies. Most recently, Migratory Patterns (May 2011) was released, exploring a sort of soft-electronica sound coupled with somewhat darker melodies, making it Lowercase Noises' most contemplative album yet. Additionally, the album is loosely themed after the mysterious '52-hertz Whale,' a lone-traveling creature who has long evaded researchers. This whale's low- frequency call can be heard on Migratory Patterns. Andy has also performed and collaborated on a number of other artist's albums, and is currently the lead guitarist for Albuquerque singer/songwriter Chuck Elmore.

ABOUT HOTEL NEON-- Hotel Neon is a Philadelphia based drone-based ambient trio, consisting of Michael Tasselmyer, Andrew Tasselmyer and Steven Kemner. It is an outlet characterized by achingly static drones and slowly evolving textures; a sort of open canvas that both welcomes and houses the spilled thoughts and musings of the listener's mind. The only requisites for entry are patience and perception.

ABOUT COASTLANDS -- Coastlands is an instrumental ambient/post-rock band out of Portland, Oregon. Formed in 2011, The four piece lineup features Jason Sissoyev and Nick Fisher on guitars, Jordan Householder on 7-string guitar and Rick Keefer on drums and percussion. Drawn together by a mutual love of music and a penchant for unusual instrumentation and recording methods, each member lends elements of their diverse musical experience, resulting in a sound that is expansive, cinematic, ethereal and highly textured. They have produced several EP's and a handful of singles since their inception. They have been featured in a couple of documentaries, and their most recent release, Come Morning, A Radiant Light, sold out it's first edition within days of announcing its pre release. Citing influence from artists such as Ef, Mono, Mogwai, and Logh, their own interpretation of the genre is heavily guitar-laden and woven with distortion and atmospheric resonance that traces the sweeping landscape of the Pacific Northwest. You'll often find them performing at clubs throughout the Northwest, but when they're not on the road or conceptualizing their next sonic journey, you might find them hiking, biking, kayaking, drinking beer and ghost hunting in and around Portland. Connect with Coastlands through one of their social networks to stay up to date with new music, videos, live shows and more.

Denzel Curry, Allan Kingdom, JK The Reaper

ABOUT DENZEL CURRY-- Straight from the depths of Blackland Carol City (Zone 3 to be exact), Denzel "Aquarius'Killa" Curry sometimes known as "Raven Miyagi" emerged on the underground hip hop scene with a vintage sound unheard of since the 90's. One of the youngest members in Spaceghost Purrp's Raider Klan the young emcee has a rapid fire delivery reminiscent of Bone Thugs N Harmony with a heavy Lord Infamous/Three Six Mafia influence. After picking up the pen at age 12, He started taking his career seriously at age 16 releasing his first mixtape & Building his following online via Youtube, Twitter, & Facebook. His Feature on Lil Ugly Mane's "Twistin" catapulted him into the spotlight after being placed on mentor Spaceghost Purrp's "God Of Black EP" and later being featured on BBC Radio overseas. From the socially charged lyrics of "S.4.M.R" to the agressive flows on Purrp produced cut "Headcrack", Denzel is out to show & prove that traditional Southern Hip Hop isn't dead and the underground has something to say. After recently headlining Miami's First Boiler Room, Performing at Coachella with his Raider Klan Family, & recently being featured on MTV's Rap Fix with Sway, Denzel has been making waves with the first 3 releases (Dark & Violent, Threatz, N64) from his upcoming project. Be on the lookout for his first album "Nostalgic 64" coming soon.

ABOUT ALLAN KINGDOM-- Even with so much music already under his belt, 22 year-old, Allan Kingdom, has no plan on slowing down. Although his sound isn't typical to what is getting mainstream radio play at the moment, he doesn't let that dissuade him in any way from creating the music that feels right to him. In fact, sees that challenge as more of a reason to persevere. It was that dedication and signature sound that recently caught the interest of world renowned producer and rapper Kanye West, who upon hearing Kingdom's music requested his vocals for "All Day". Soon after Kingdom found himself on the world stage for the first time, performing the track live with Kanye at the Brit Awards, England's equivalent to the Grammys. Although the Kanye song collaboration was a key moment for Allan, there were years of dedication that lead up to it. Born in Winnipeg Canada, Tanzanian and father is South African. He grew up as an only child with his mom, a pharmaceutical scientist, who moved to Canada after receiving an academic scholarship to study there. Her career eventually led her to another University job in St. Paul, Minnesota, where Allan grew up, speaking Swahili as the predominant language at home. As Kingdom grew up he continued make music on his own, including his self produced and released project entitled "Talk to Strangers" in 2013. At 17, he took his pursuits to Twitter, where caught the interest of Kanye West producer Plain Pat and industry management and A&R veteran Jonathan Kaslow, who immediately responded to the music positively. Soon after he released his first project with the duo entitled "Future Memoirs" and in 2014 was named "Best Hip Hop Artist of 2014" by City Pages in Minneapolis and was listed on Complex's "Top 25 Rappers to Watch." "What's missing in hip-hop for me a little bit is the human aspect." says Kingdom. "The fact that we all go through the same things, even though we all come from different places. Everyone cries and everyone laughs. We can feel alone, but at the end of the day we're not alone, we are all together." It's that humble yet insightful, honest yet gritty approach that's paving unchartered musical territory as his career progresses. Allan has just self-released his third album, Northern Lights to much fanfare and acclaim. The album is a marked sonic departure from his previous releases and includes notable guest artists such as Chronixx, D.R.A.M. and Jared Evan. While both Kingdom and Plain Pat are at the helm for much of the production there are outside producers such as Swizzymack, Rex Kudo and Ryan Olson lending a hand to the album. The result sees Kingdom developing his sound into a fuller, richer and more expansive sound from earlier works. He will begin a nationwide tour in the spring to support the album along with appearing on numerous high profile collaborations that will drop throughout the year.

Intronaut, Scale The Summit, North, He Whose Ox Is Gored, The Diggers

ABOUT INTRONAUT -- Los Angeles post-prog masters Intronaut return with their 4th and most impressive full length album to date; Habitual Levitations. Once again yielding thunderous, tribal drum beats, hypnotic bass patterns, angular guitar riffs and the trance-like vocals of Sacha Dunable, Intronaut pick up where they left off on 2010's Valley of Smoke, though this time around, see the songs a bit more refined and cultivated. The band toured heavily in support of Valley, including a stint opening for Tool in the US, which may explain the more polished sound. Intronaut has always teetered close on being a jam band. With one of the greatest rhythm sections in music (drummer, Danny Walker and bassist, Joe Lester) it would be hard not to just light up and see where those two take you. Experimenting on stage, knowing exactly where each band member is going in the song and thus really becoming one as a band is what Intronaut has achieved and what producers John Haddad [Exhumed, Phobia] and Derek Donley [Bereft] managed to capture perfectly on the new album. With a US tour supporting Meshuggah and Animals as Leaders set prior to Habitual's release, Intronaut will surely continue to mature and solidify themselves as one of the best metal bands around.

I started piano lessons at age 6, voice lessons at age 15, and went on to sing in my high school jazz choir, The Crimson Singers. I then sang in Edmonds Community College's vocal jazz ensemble, Soundsation, for 2 years. After earning my AA degree, I finished my college career at Central Washington University, where I studied voice, sang in the Chamber Choir, and in the Vocal Jazz 1 choir. I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree in music in 2005. After college, I sang only occasionally, usually in local charity events. I found Lenny in March, 2011, and that's when my music took flight, once again! I started writing, performing whenever and wherever I could, and dug up those old musical hopes and dreams, which had nearly been forgotten. Thank you for following us on our journey! Lenny: Not much happened in my life before Rani found me at the Kennelly Keys in Bellevue Square. Nothing worth a mention, anyway.
