-As a youth, Duncan "DonCat" Nielsen's grandma gave him an odd pile of European released Beach Boys tapes, which led him to the record store searching for other oddities. Coming from a family of music enthusiasts, including a dad with a penchant for Cream and the blue shades of Jimi Hendrix, a brother with drum line credentials and a composer himself, and a mother who did Linda Ronstadt's version of Blue Bayou at her high school talent show, he was poised for writing melodic music in a nostalgia-brand rock and soul format.

-Split Screens is a San Francisco band led by multi-instrumentalist Jesse Cafiero. Born out of his inspiring move out west, Split Screens began as Jesse's creative outlet on the side, slowly taking it's shape while he was busy making his name in the Bay Area as a bass player, sharing the stage at times with the likes of Thao Nguyen, John Vanderslice, and Sean Hayes.
Crafted entirely at the enigmatic Coyote Hearing Studios in Oakland, CA, Split Screens' debut self-titled EP was produced and engineered by Jeremy Black. Highlighting the unique voice of the lap steel guitar, Jesse sang and played the majority of instruments on the record, along with the talents of session musicians. The result is a dreamy compilation of songs blending between the themes of life and loss, at moments trance-like and reflective, at other times driven with cacaphonous intensity.

-Scary Little Friends is the brainchild of Chris Jones with Charlie Knote on drums and Jon Payne on bass. Chris built his own studio in the Mission especially for this project, which features lilting vocals, ala Jeff Buckley, and surfs-up psychedelic guitars, which are a trademark of the "San Francisco Sound". Strong songwriting is really the bread and butter of this band.
Scary Little Friends is thoughtful and emotional rock/pop songwriting that we want you to hear. Awesome vocals and musicianship.
