Stone Cold Fox

 

Olken and Loh met as classmates at SUNY Purchase where Stone Cold Fox originated as an acoustic bedroom project. It has since expanded and grown into a solid indie-folk group that “emanates a youthful and energetic sense of comfort through beautiful songs, simple aesthetics, and innovative production.” (FIKA Coffee Break). Drawing its musical influences from Radiohead and more, Stone Cold Fox's exceptional musicianship grew from a place of deep-seeded knowledge, rooted in the members' early experimentation with a variety of genres. Now complete with Justin Bright (electric bass/bass synth), Graham Stone (guitar, back-up vocals) and David Tedeschi (drums), Stone Cold Fox shows off “heavy, irreverent songwriting under catchy, indie pop tunes“ (Hyphen Magazine) that “capture the spirit of being young in America.” (Given and Taken in Ink Music)

Best friends turned band-mates, the lady and gentlemen of Branches are an independent, self-writing and self-producing collective. Birthed in a living room in the suburbs of Los Angeles in 2010, Tyler, Natalie, Jacob, Mitch, Tyler, and Mike have since spent their time playing shows, writing, and recording songs. Their debut EP, O, Light! and their sophomore release, Cabin, offered an eight-song sample of their sound. The sounds of O, Light! and Cabin offer the full spectrum of what this band is capable of: indie-folk-rock-family-fun in a style that has been compared to the likes of Arcade Fire, Mumford and Sons, and Freelance Whales. Branches are thrilled and proud to have recently released its first full-length album, Thou Art the Dream.

The story of new indie rock band Broken Anchor begins in a home studio in Los Angeles' diverse Echo Park neighborhood, where the song “Broken Anchor Blues” was recorded in 2012. The project grew organically out of a collaboration between Austin Hartley-Leonard and producer, Brad Gordon. The music reflects a broader influence from Hartley-Leonard's previous efforts, lending itself to comparisons with Band of Horses and Fleet Foxes and what Gordon calls “a kind of elegant lo-fi retro vibe." Broken Anchor is a stunning ride through a songwriter's exploration of life and love, created with a clarity of vision only the journey can provide.
