    Prolific singer and songwriter David Ramirez has earned a large and growing following for his soulful, introspective songs and passionate performances. Ramirez grew up in Houston, Texas, where he became interested in music and formed a band with his friends. Influenced by '90s alternative rock, Ramirez's group primarily played parties, but he got hooked on making music, and while attending college in Dallas, he heard an album by Ryan Adams and became fascinated by contemporary folk and influential singer/songwriters of the '60s and '70s, especially Bob Dylan.

    W/ Kid Froopy

    Terror Jr is a dark electro-pop trio who emerged under an air of mystique in 2016. When the group's debut single "3 Strikes" appeared in a three-minute Kylie Jenner makeup commercial that spring, it led to rumors that the reality TV celeb might be the unknown band's lead singer. (The band and Jenner later dismissed the rumor on social networking.)

    It was soon revealed that two of the group's founding members were established pop/EDM songwriter David Singer-Vine, aka Campa of the Cataracs, and producer/electro-pop artist Felix Snow. The pair met in 2014, then reconnected a year later when they both worked on the single "Gold" for Atlantic Records artist Kiiara. With the third member being a lead singer referred to only as "Lisa," and the appearance of promotional photos that obscured bandmembers' faces, speculation about her identity persisted.

    More singles, including "Sugar" and "Say So" followed that spring and summer, and the group's debut album, Bop City, appeared in October 2016 on Atlantic imprint EFFESS. A play on Snow's initials, the label was established by Snow and Singer-Vine. ~ Marcy Donelson, Rovi

    This Is the Kit's rise to recognition was as slow and steady as the subtle, quiet way their alternative folk seeped into an ever-increasing audience's consciousness. The name was essentially an alias for British musician Kate Sables, along with regular contributors among the ever-revolving ones. She was born and raised in the English town of Winchester, and was absorbed by music at an early age, learning both trumpet and guitar.

    Like many great Southern storytellers, singer-songwriter Tyler Childers has fallen in love with a place. The people, landmarks and legendary moments from his childhood home of Lawrence County, Kentucky, populate the 10 songs in his formidable debut, Purgatory, an album that’s simultaneously modern and as ancient as the Appalachian Mountains in which events unfold. The album, co-produced by Grammy Award winners Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson, is a semiautobiographical sketch of Childers’ growth from wayward youth to happily married man, told in the tradition of a Southern gothic novel with a classic noir antihero who may just be irredeemable. Purgatory is a chiaroscuro painting with darkness framing light in high relief. There’s catharsis and redemption. Sin and temptation. Murder and deceit. Demons and angels. Moonshine and cocaine. So much moonshine and cocaine. All played out on the large, colorful canvas of Eastern Kentucky.

    W/ Living Hours

    The Royal Foundry came together through the marriage of Bethany Schumacher and Jared Salte. What started as a folk duo quickly evolved into a full throttle Alt-Pop quartet. Both Jared and Bethany were born and raised amongst the beautiful Prairie-Skies of Alberta, Canada. Bethany was the preacher’s daughter who developed a love for the visual arts. Jared on the other hand grew up surrounded by music as the son of a Touring-Rock-Musician. They quickly formed through a musical and literal marriage. Jared and Bethany Salte had no intentions of starting the Electro-Alt-Pop Band that is now The Royal Foundry; But after the release of “All We Have” received international exposure through the John Lennon Songwriting Competition and ABC’s Rookie Blue they knew they had discovered something special.

    In 2015 they won $75,000 as part of the Peak Performance Project for their song "Running Away" Which is now #22 on Alt-Rock Stations across Canada! It has also been featured on TSN as the opening song for the CFL. This new direction pulls them away from their folk roots and is the sort of music you might expect if Mutemath crashed a tea party with Coldplay and The Civil Wars. Their list of accolades reads like a list of a band that’s been together for at least a decade. It’s hard to imagine that this has happened in just two short years.

    Their latest single, 'Dreamers' was first exposed during their live concert for the WORLD CUP OF HOCKEY in Toronto, On. Soon after release, ©Disney quickly jumped on board to use the new release of the song for their 2017 Wedding Dress Fashion Line.

    Known for his distinctly husky vocals, intellectual lyrics, and atmospheric folk-laden, punk-infused indie rock, Trevor Sensor is an American singer/songwriter from Sterling, Illinois. Growing up in the small city (occasionally deemed the "former hardware capital of the world"), the abandoned factories and working-class bars that adorn the rust belt landscape ultimately fed into what the young songwriter would use to fuel his musical creations. This, alongside the elusive idea of pop culture and stardom, inspired Sensor to try and escape the city himself. He eventually relocated to Iowa, where he studied literature and philosophy at college. The words of great minds such as Marcel Proust, Søren Kierkegaard, and beat generation authors William S. Burroughs and Jack Kerouac, would be some of the vital elements to Sensor's art. He went on to discover his musical voice in a number of bands before penning his own songs, and after a number of live performances, he caught the attention of Indiana-based indie label Jagjaguar.
