The Tender Few
Robert Reid, Brad Parker, Peter Dominguez, Chad Gorman, and Chip Dalby.
-From San Francisco, California.

-Based in San Francisco with a satellite office in Brooklyn, The Tender Few hope to dry the tears of the American indie hipster with a handkerchief woven from distortion pedals monogrammed with the letters LOL. Because, deep down, we're all looking for lots of laughs.

The American Professionals 
Chuck Lindo, Cheryl Hendrickson, and Adam White.
-From San Francisco, California.
-The American Professionals take their cleverly crafted songs of hope, love, guilt, and fear, pepper them with melodic twists and lush harmonies, then shoot them out of a cannon at your earholes. Sometimes they get quiet and pretty,ethereal, even a bit spooky, then turn around and blow stuff up again. They are powerful, upbeat, charismatic, and bursting at the seams with character. Quick rhythms and catchy guitar riffs complement the solid pop vocals and harmonies, making for songs with plenty of hooks and twists.

Andrew Griffin, Dylan Brock, Art McConnell, and Cristian Hernandez.
-From West Oakland, California.

-Oakland-based indie rockers, Felsen, have recently completed their fourth album, I Don't Know How to Talk Anymore, released nationally on September 4, 2013. Songs were written collectively by the band, and took a strictly DIY approach with this new album, recording and mixing it themselves at Hernandez's house in the East Bay.

The songs fit together like a novel telling a story about the need to re-humanize ourselves in the face of excess affluence. In the wake of soul-crushing technological advancements, art wins, humanity prevails.

Frontman Andrew Griffin started Felsen after his 2006 cancer diagnosis, which led to the release of Felsen's first album, Accidental Drowning, in 2009. Felsen Loves You- an EP on the Ninth Street Opus label- followed in 2010, and in 2011 another full-length album- Breaking Up With Loneliness- was self-released.
