LA-based Indie Pop Rocker Maddie Ross was once described by The 405 as an "Alt-Pop Dream Queen". Ross writes guitar-driven anthems about her producer, co-writer and longtime girlfriend Wolfy. In September of 2018, songwriting legend KT Tunstall came across Ross’s music during a Twitter exchange, and immediately reached out via direct message to invite Ross to open on a 22-city North American tour. Ross agreed, and quickly released her sophomore EP, “Touch Hands, Touch Bodies” in anticipation of the tour. Tunstall fans fell in love with Ross’s high energy performances, “abundant cussing”, and candid love songs about being lesbian and proud. In May of 2019, Ross released her debut album 'Never Have I Ever', produced and co-written by Wolfy. The album was named Billboard Staff's "Top 50 Albums of 2019 So Far", and has gained praise from Teen Vogue, MTV, Billboard and NPR Music.
Digging deep between the realms of deconstruction and self-realization, Twin Oaks put forth their sophomore release 'See You When I See You' with no limitations. Following the band's shoegaze-driven 2017 'Collapse EP' and patient intimacy of 2018 'Living Rooms EP', Brown continues to present deeply personal observations on isolation, societal pressure, death, and failed expectations. The emotional depths are elevated (this time) by the band's ability to navigate between haunting soundscape, driven dynamics, and quiet contemplation. “SEE YOU WHEN I SEE YOU is a process of diving into the most unsettling moments of life in order to find a better sense of self”, states Brown. The writing spanned throughout the end of 2017 into 2018 and included the collaborations of drummer/percussionist Marilyn Beltran and bassist Aroldo Rios to bring the songs to full completion. Keeping to their DIY roots, Twin Oaks self-recorded and produced the album in October 2018 between Brass Plate Records and Domingo's home studio in Southern California. Twin Oaks has recently performed as a support act for The Joy Formidable, Mt. Joy, Emma Ruth Rundle, Flora Cash, Angelo DeAugustine, AKW, & Navvi. SEE YOU WHEN I SEE YOU released on June 14th, 2019.
