Great White Buffalo
Great White Buffalo
Graham Bockmiller, Stephen Johnson, Paul Hiller, and Rich Caririllo.
-From NorCal, SoCal, and Colorado.
-"It has often felt as if sincerity and personal conviction were run out of rock 'n' roll in exchange for a tepid and demure approach to song writing, analogous to the music industry's apprehension of change.
Great white Buffalo, however, appear and sound determined to reintroduce and inject that emotional intelligence back into the veins of rock music, starting with an indie sensibility. The band has been garnering attention and for good reason. Their recent self-titled debut release, which they reocrded with Grammy award-winning producer Phillip Allen (Adele, Aerosmith) this past year, kicks up reminders of big sounds, challenging metaphors, and hooks that will make you and yours randy.
With comparisons abounding, this L.A. quartet is set to make a splash onto the airwaves." -John Matthew Simon, Indie Shuffle.
Shane Bierwith, Mike Rawlinson, Hilary Hanselman, Tim Brummett, and Greg Finley.
-From San Francisco, California.
-Equally indebted to indie-favorites, Fleet Foxes and Arcade Fire, as they are to classics like Brian Wilson and Greg Allman, New Cadence mixes new-school songwriting with a unique sound from the past. With four-part harmonies and a stage full of instruments, this five-piece indie-folk band from the SF Bay Area beckons a musical solidarity that's primed for the new roots revival.
Nick Pak, Johan Alfsen, and Ruben Rios.
-From the Bay Area, California.
-Northerner is an indie/alternative rock band that formed within the remaining members of local Bay Area band Wave Array. After seven years of writing, recording, and touring, Wave Array lost it's singer/guitarist Strom Lee to the great city of Seattle. After a short break, Nick, Johan, and Ruben found themselves in their East Bay studio with catchy riffs, hooks, and songs that could not stop them from forming new music. The three captured this great new rock sound and formed Northerner, and got right back into the studio and on stage to cintue bringing new, original music to the Bay Area.
