The Rocketboys (solo)
The Texas landscape in which The Rocketboys formed has many parallels to their music: Vast, yet sparse; desolate, yet rich and abundant. Often eschewing familiar lyrical themes of romance and love for songs of brotherhood, family, life, and death, The Rocketboys’ catalogue chronicles the band’s journey throughout its existence.

The group was born in college dorm rooms in Abilene, TX and swiftly achieved critical acclaim from their debut EP “Sing, Bird, Sing” and LP “20,000 Ghosts”. In 2011, 3 of the original 6 members departed, and the band teetered on breaking up. Cautiously attempting to work as a three piece, remaining members Brandon Kinder (singer & guitarist), Justin Wiseman (keyboards) and Josh Campbell (bass), resiliently crafted “Build Anyway” (2012) – a lush, cathartic album which cemented The Rocketboys’ status as a formidable rock band.

A strong track record of commercial success testifies to The Rocketboys’ keen ability to create and capture unique, emotional musical experiences. “One Tree Hill,” “Private Practice,” “Elementary,” and many others have channeled the band’s thematic energy. Reviews often highlight the band’s parity to textural acts such as Band of Horses and Death Cab for Cutie while retaining the mass appeal of Coldplay, The Verve and Keane.

No strangers to the road (the band will perform its 700th show this year), The Rocketboys continually find fans across the country with a powerful live show. Armed with a growing collection of new material for a third full-length album, The Rocketboys have begun recording with multi-grammy winning producer, Joe Chicarelli (Manchester Orchestra, The Strokes, The Shins).
The Georgia Flood
Groove-heavy and Genre-bending, The Georgia Flood’s music has evolved over the years. Their new album, People Like Ourselves, draws on indelible melodies, clever lyrics, and an infectious energy; weaving together an EP that hits all the right notes. The Atlanta based duo, Lane Kelly and Brooks Mason, are brothers who began playing when they were seven and nine years old respectively. Hustling birthday parties and family reunions the brothers changed sounds numerous times through their teens. Drawing on their exploration of numerous genres, their songwriting channels classic guitar driving riffs with modern pop sensibilities.

Self-financed, the band went into Jason Hoard’s Black Cat Studio to put together the seven songs contained within their new EP. Don’t let the EP status fool you though, the band toiled over 30+ tracks to carve out their favorites, coalescing into seven songs that journey through themes of love, good times, and tragedy. “We had a really tough time choosing just a few,” explains Brooks, The Georgia Flood’s lead guitar player and singer,.“We had so many songs that really brought the listener to amazing moments.”

“Whistle King,” the records infectious first single, encompasses much of what the record is about. “On the surface it seems sort of nonsensical and fun but the song really describes how crazy our lifestyle is on the road,” explains Lane, who plays bass and sings harmonies. “Playing in an indie band is a constant state of discovery, and lyrically, “Whistle King” exemplifies much of that exhilaration and frustration.”

After the record’s release on December 2nd, The Georgia Flood will be touring throughout the Southeast into the New Year. With a dynamic live set, the band intends to bring their music to ears the good old fashioned way, one club at a time.
