Convey
Convey
Convey is a rock band born in Boston and based out of Los Angeles. Convey traffics in a breed of modern rock that knows its roots while flaunting its red-blooded realism in the 21st century. Vocalist Ben Cohen never fails to summon the neck hairs to attention with lyrics that can at once speak to personal tales of fear, addiction, and love or scream at social corruption and injustice. Jahan’s guitar lines threaten to snap from sultry to brazen and brutal at the crack of snare from Cory or the low-end power of Luke.



Having self-released they’re eponymous EP in the fall of 2016, the boys have been incubating ideas, fleshing them out, and not settling until the grooves cut as deep as the vocals do soar. Decades of digesting the legendary likes Led Zeppelin and Tool, then grafting them to a living love of Queens of the Stone Age and Circa Survive has yielded their new LP. Soon to be unleashed this fall, it will surely remind you just how rock should feel.
KIDDO
KIDDO
Kiddo is a three-piece indie-pop project based in Los Angeles, CA. After six years of writing, touring, and performing all across the Pacific Northwest under the moniker "A Yawn Worth Yelling", core members Tyler Boyd (lead vocals, guitar), Taylor Stover (drums), and Brayden Deskins (guitar, keys, vocals) have rebranded and refocused their sound to cater to their pop sensibilities.

Kiddo is a crystallization of what Ty, Tay, and Bray have always intended a collaboration between the three of them to be - fun, uplifting, authentic. With the immutable chemistry that only best friends can have, Kiddo has been honing their craft and distilling their sound to be as warm and sweet to listen to as possible - as Your Record Collection Sucks remarks, "More like Québécois maple than high fructose corn syrup...these gentlemen give those guys from ABBA a run for their cotton candy-asses."

Over the course of the last few years, Kiddo has performed at the Bay Area's LIVE105 music festival BFD, opened for the likes of Saint Motel, and wrote the opening title song, "I'll Never Know", for the film Megan Leavey. With their single "Anyone But You" just having been released to critical acclaim and more singles, shows, and surprises in the works, Kiddo is geared toward the future with eager and confident eyes.
Dead Posey
Befitting their handle, Dead Posey is fascinated by what lies beyond, their music exploring the nature of mortality through both waking life and dreams. But while the Los Angeles duo’s lyrics lean toward the metaphysical, its debut EP, Freak Show, is a raucous, fuzz-loaded collection of back-to-basics rock 'n' roll. Singer Danielle Souza’s inspired vocals blend seamlessly with guitarist Kyle Foster’s muddy, blown-out riffs in this vibrant, boot-stomping five-song collection.

The band spent most of 2016 working on Freak Show and credits producer/co-writer ALLIES (Tony Fagenson of Eve 6) with helping guide their vision and develop their sound. The EP was created almost entirely in the studio, starting from Souza and Foster’s bare-bones vocals-and-guitar demos. "We'd take our three-month old fetus of a song into the studio with Tony and then nurture and grow it into a snarling monster together," Souza says. From the anthemic "Don’t Stop the Devil" to the soulful swamp rock of "Boogeyman," Dead Posey will leave you eager to let your freak flag fly.

"Anything weird and abnormal, that’s what lights a fire in us," Souza says. "Lyrically, I find myself thinking about the morbid truth that we will all die one day and descend into the unknown—so you might as well grab life by the balls." While the macabre is a persistent thread throughout the band’s debut, the idea of human connection also weaves its way into each song, unfolding like a story told over a late night of hard drinking amongst close friends.

"I love when certain parts of your life end up having a soundtrack to them because of what was playing at the moment," Foster says. "Creating art and sharing it with the world is an intimate thing—it helps people relate and make memories."

The two halves of Dead Posey first met at a recording studio in Hollywood in 2013 during an album release party. "It wasn’t really my scene," Souza says, "so I wandered off alone and found a kindred, outsider spirit in Kyle." She noticed Foster while he was lighting a candle inside a miniature glass cottage and the two launched into a conversation about setting Tinker Bell's house on fire. After discovering they shared similar musical influences, as Souza puts it, they "stumbled around in the weeds together" with various projects and bands, eventually leading to the birth of Dead Posey.

The new EP’s lead single "Don’t Stop the Devil" is a dark, '90s-inspired grunge anthem about how temptation can sink its teeth into the best of us. The single found its way into the game 'League of Legends" (Hype Video) and is also accompanied by a music video directed by Chris Berkenkamp (Dionysus Co Entertainment) that is at once dizzying, mystifying and deliciously creepy. The band will be bringing Freak Show to life at shows throughout 2017, chasing the darkness as deep as it will take them.
Paradise Vultures
Paradise Vultures
Paradise Vultures was formed in 2016 by multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and vocalist Tommy Senter; bassist Jace McPartland; and lead guitarist Joe Perez. Born out of a frustration with much of modern rock’s creative trajectory, they set out to produce dynamic, honest, uncompromising rock and roll that pulls no punches. With influences from Queens of the Stone Age and Jack White, to Failure and Smashing Pumpkins, Paradise Vultures combines the intensity of unadulterated rock with pop sensibilities. Their debut record “Gourmet Carrion” was released independently in August of 2017.
