"The entire album is just a well-polished pop rock offering that is ready to dominate the airwaves." - The Owl Mag
"A+ indie rock and roll...reminds, for us at least, of some of the genre’s greats." - BlahBlahBlahScience
"The perfect balance between melodic hooks, blues-tinged guitar riffs, and vocal parts... with such a melting pot of genres at play in their work, it’s safe to say they bring a little something for everyone” - PureVolume
"Finish Ticket’s ‘Doctor’ boasts an enormous cinematic chorus that evokes feelings of nostalgia and timelessness, a la ‘Johnny B. Goode,’ or something by the Four Seasons" - Diffuser.fm
"Lush musical landscape...killer melodies and harmonies" - Pure Grain Audio
"Finish Ticket offers a sound that is broad and touches on everything in between the rock and pop realms." -BuzzBandsLA
If there is a middle ground between Katy Perry and Bjork (or pop and experimental) in contemporary popular music, holychild is it. Based out of Los Angeles, CA, holychild’s latest music video, “Best Friends," was exclusively premiered by MTV Buzzworthy who named it the song of the summer. Their debut EP, mind speak, will be released in fall 2013.
Quartet version of Ghost And the City
Ghost And the City
Ghost & the City serves up a perfect musical cocktail of blues, jazz, rock and Motown.
At times, the band is grooving as if it were performing in a 1930s speakeasy, adding haunting horns to the mix. But it also fits in as a sound of city life in 2012. There is joy and anger equally balanced in its compositions. The band's music is a soundtrack for questionable shadows lurking in dark alleys.
Formed in 2008, Ghost & the City recently released its second full-length album, "Sazerac," which is available for download from the band's website.
Lineup: Ash Maynor, vocals, piano; Alexis Melnicki, vocals; Jesse Boley, saxophone; Liam Staskawicz, trombone; Max Miller-Loran, trumpet; Aaron Hellam, guitar; Peter Sullivan, bass; Justin Silva, drums; Molly Smart, piano, percussion, vocals.
