Keep Me Conscious

Sharp enough to make you nervous but infectious enough to keep you singing along, Keep Me Conscious has been played regularly on a variety of college and internet radio stations in Boston, including WAAF's Bay State Rock and WZLX's Boston Emissions. Since forming in March 2009, Boston-based Keep Me Conscious has built a fiercely loyal fan base by offering a unique brand of melodic alt-rock and an intense stage performance. Bob Bowser (vocals), Daniel Maleck (guitar), John Wiley (guitar), Maty Vamp (bass) and Rob B Wu (drums) are passionate songwriters committed to delivering their music live with the same precision found on their recordings. Keep Me Conscious has quickly become a "must-see" live band. In just under a year, they have proven to be road-worthy by booking more than 100 dates, including an East Coast tour, a Hot Topic "in-store" acoustic tour, CMJ Festival in NY, SXSW and Red Gorilla Festival in TX, showcases in LA, countless regional shows, and even multiple sets at New England Patriots games . . . all without label or management support. 

Check them out with Halfway to Avalon. Halfway to Avalon was formed in September of 2009 after recording their four-song self-titled EP with original members Ryan Gavin (guitar/vocals), Jacob King (guitar), and Geoff Bahre (drums). After recording, the band and Geoff parted ways. Matthew Wiles then joined on drums, and Michael Martins on bass. As passionate songwriters and performers, the band works hard to deliver emotional and powerful performances with the same fervor and quality found on their record.
