NOTHING ON THE MOON
NOTHING ON THE MOON
These days are stranger and these places I'll let go, we're going downtown." Nothing On The Moon, a 4 piece indie fuzzed, groove rock, sax band began as a last resort in a small house in downtown Mesa, Arizona. Brandon Simoes (Guitar/ Vocals) and Joey Wilson (Drums) conceived the group from the ashes of fallen projects with bass player and best friend, Mason White, who can be caught frequently without shoes and a four string in hand. Not long after their jams began, the band was then accompanied by Richelle Heinauer (Saxophone/Keyboards), creating a fresh dynamic on stage. In October 2015 the band released their debut EP "Till The Sun Comes Up", and is currently working on a full release.

NEW CHUMS
Tuolumne (pronounced to-wall-a-me) is not just the northern California County where front man, Seth Boyack, grew up. As he developed his love for music, learned to play guitar, and sang in the choir, he also began to set his sights on fronting his own band. Now as the singer/guitarist/songwriter for New Chums, it was only fitting to name the band’s debut EP, Tuolumne (released September 2015) for the place where it began.

New to the Phoenix, Arizona music scene after playing guitar for indie rock bands in Salt Lake City, Austin, and assorted northern California cities, Seth began the inevitable Craigslist search to build his own band. From the Boston music scene came drummer Ben Hedlund – a solid indie rock drummer with a nice resume, and plenty of song arrangement ideas.

They began sifting through Seth’s catalog of songs to get a set together, and start playing shows around Phoenix, Tempe, and Mesa. It would be from this selection of songs that New Chums would choose the first five to head into the studio and record the aforementioned EP. With Curtis Grippe (Dead Hot Workshop) producing, the band quickly recorded their indie rock debut in a week’s time during the summer of 2015. While spending the next couple of months mixing and mastering the EP, the band continued to work on solidifying their live show taking any dates they could get.

After only a couple months since the release of Tuolumne on CD, iTunes, Spotify, and Pandora, the New Chums began to gain some traction with online radio play, excellent reviews, and the growth of their fan base. With an eye on larger shows, the band brought in guitarist Matt Lloyd, from Phoenix, to fill out the sound with clever guitar leads, and school the band in all things basketball.

With comparisons to Interpol, Jimmy Eat World, the Strokes, and others, new fans of the band should keep an eye open for New Chums in Arizona clubs. The band plans to begin touring the east and west coasts, as well as playing festivals.

"’Come On, Come On’ is an ideal power pop song in no uncertain terms.”

“…an impressive debut fresh out of the box.”

ONE-THIRTEEN
One-Thirteen formed in 2016 with founding members John & Kammie Caufield and Brandon McCarthy. The three played together in years prior under John's solo project and then decided to form an official band. Colton Harrison joined later that year. With influences ranging from rock, punk, classical, and pop music, the band prides themselves in continuing to write songs that are new and different from songs they have written in the past.
