About the performers:
At just 18 years-old, the Minneapolis-bred singer/songwriter self-released her first few songs last summer and quickly caught the attention of her hometown pop radio station, KDWB 101.3 FM. The reaction to “Inner Demons” was instantaneous throughout the Twin Cities, lighting up iTunes and Shazam with each radio spin and attracting the attention of Columbia Records, which signed Julia to a recording contract this past fall. “Inner Demons” debuts this week on the Adult Pop airplay chart and currently sits at #7 on iTunes’ Singer/Songwriter chart.
Founded by Katie Gavin (lead vocals/production), Josette Maskin (lead guitar), and Naomi McPherson (rhythm guitar/synths/production), MUNA is a dark pop girl band based in Los Angeles, CA blending the brooding sensuality of R&B, rhythms of funk, and audacity of synthpop with raw, unbridled lyricism. They hope their songs lend themselves both to the euphoric dancefloor and emo bedroom solitude.
Avalon Landing quickly established themselves as natural born songwriters after gaining regular radio airplay with homemade demos, all before ever releasing an official album or single. From humble beginnings in upstate New York, to the bright lights and fast pace of Las Vegas, their story is being told through music.
Josh Rabenold intertwines his masterful vocal arrangements and penchant for nostalgic lyrics with a punchy indie rock drive that never looks back. The ability to layer many diverse musical styles ranging from Zimmer-esque string orchestrations to club ready hip-hop beats allows Avalon Landing to traverse any musical landscape with inconceivable ease.
Perhaps the journey of Avalon Landing is best illustrated in the gut-punching relentlessness of “Only Kids” with its anthemic chorus and powerful mid-section that invigorates the listener by throwing them down a rabbit hole of chaotic drums and swirling feedback before bringing the song home with a soaring solo from guitarist Clayton Cobb.
Avalon Landing’s journey may be further illustrated in the ebullient pop euphoria of the frenetic “Insomnia,” with an addictive synth attack that yields only to an even more addictive vocal yearn from Rabenold. The song, wild and unapologetic, is glued together by a guitar that feels both patient and manic. “Insomnia” is a perfect euphemism for keeping yourself up all night, or maybe for packing your things and moving out west to chase a dream.
Avalon Landing is learning from the past with eyes fixed on the future. With an unrelenting drive and passion for all things music, Avalon Landing surely stands out in an era where there are more bands than ever before but fewer than ever on the charts, and where music is so accessible to everyone that your only hope is to write a truly great song.
“At the root of it, I think the definition of a great song has been the same forever,” says guitarist Mike Vargovich, “You can play it with all the bells and whistles, or you simply play it with just an acoustic guitar and it still has the same impact. That’s a great song.”
To see Avalon Landing live, and to witness recent addition Charlie Buice behind the drums, tearing into songs such as “Only Kids,” is to see music come alive. Since honing their skills, rising through the Las Vegas bar scene and onto stages with the likes of Imagine Dragons and Andrew McMahon, Avalon Landing has now coupled their exceptional studio work with a dynamic new live show that exhibits the same amount of range, ambition, and emotion we’ve come know in their recorded music.
Emerging as one of the top alternative band’s based out of Las Vegas, SILVERSAGE has gained much success from their EP “Through The Night” produced by Bob Marlette (Shinedown) and Sahaj Ticotin (Ra). Silversage blend powerful vocals, soaring electric guitars, and electronic synths to create the core of their alternative-indie based sound.
The band has created quite the buzz since their inception late 2013 by regularly filling top Vegas venues such as; House of Blues, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas, The Sayers Club, Double Barrel Roadhouse, and Vinyl at Hard Rock. The band has also become a main-stay act on the Las Vegas strip performing under Caesars Entertainment. Along with local Vegas Residencies,
Silversage has also toured parts of the Western U.S. SILVERSAGE has been busy with local T.V. performances (Morning Blend on ABC,
Downtown Podcast, The Will Edward Show, and Vegas On The Mic, Fox Gibson Showroom), receiving radio airplay (X107.5 FM, Mix 94.1 FM, Komp 92.3 FM), and opening for national acts Steve Winwood, Lit, Adelitas Way, Sevendust, LANY, Red Sun Rising, and Blues
SILVERSAGE draws influences from alternative bands, Coldplay, FUN, Muse, Imagine Dragons, The Killers, One Republic, and Kings of Leon. Brand new single “Living in a Dream” produced by Jim Kaufman (Awolnation, Night Riots) is available on all music retailers and streaming services.
“Smokey, not salty.”- That’s how 24 year-old Las Vegas singer-songwriter Kaylie Foster’s voice is often described. With a passion for music that stems from her early childhood, Foster has been on a quest to make a life-long career out of her music. Having grown up around an eclectic mix of sounds, she believes that her music should have no limits; and the result is a truly unique sound that comes from the heart.
Louder Than Words is a five piece pop/rock band from Las Vegas, NV. They started in August of 2015 and have been off to a great start. Their new single “5 More Seconds (Let’s Go)” is out now along with their debut EP, “Letters & Lovers”! They have a poppy sound along with strong vocals, powerful guitars, and a pop punk feel! They bring high energy and passion to their live shows and offer a fantastic overall performance. Stay tuned for new music from them later this year!
