Matt Pond PA
Matt Pond and Chris Hansen.
-From New York, New York.
-Matt Pond has already accomplished what few rarely do. A career musician with a die-hard following that continues to grow with each album, and a resume that includes the title song for a motion picture soundtrack, a long running Starbucks holiday commercial with a hook that's always stuck in our heads, selling over 100,000 albums to date; his success is matched only by his prolific outpouring of talent. But Matt takes those things with a grain of salt, in his album 'Lives' he shows us what's really important.

With the new album, The Lives Inside the Lines In Your Hand, Matt Pond is stepping forward with striking honesty and humbling optismim and delivers his strongest work to date. And with this transformative records comes some distinct changes- partnering with new label and longtime publishing partner, BMG Rights Management.

'Lives' is an upbeat antidote to the pessimistic shift in the collective consciousness. It's an ode to the bittersweet reality that we are human, we are finite, and we are flawed. But in each song on this album, Matt Pond sources the beauty in all of it, even when it's not pretty, and delivers an indie rock album that's brimming with authenticity; Pond captures the sentiment perfectly in "Starlet:" 'I know I know there's so much I don't know.' The album's first single "Love to Get Used" is a notably playful departure from what we've seen before. "Let's hang on to abandon and hope we lose control," Pond insists in the uptempo indie-rock track, "to be out in the open baby and let go of the ropes."

The Lighthouse And The Whaler
Michael LoPresti, Matthew LoPresti, Mark Porostosky, and Ryan Walker.
-From Cleveland, Ohio.
-The Lighthouse and the Whaler plays indie-folk-pop and does not believe that genre labels tell you anything you need to know about a band. It has nevertheless caught the attention of MTV, Fuse, FILTER, Spinner, Under the Radar, and other media outlets that cater to indie-folk-pop music fans.

The band has performed at venues like Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, SXSW, House of Blues and Mercury Lounge, though its favorite show to date took place in the attic of an old bookstore. The Lighthouse and the Whaler has shared stages with Sufjan Stevens, The Temper Trap, GIVERS and The Dodos, and shared blankets while sleeping in its donated mini-van, nicknamed Serena.

Kyle M. Terrizzi
