Marine Life
Des, Terry, Rex, Marvin, and Rob.
-From San Francisco, California.
-Marine Life describes themselves as "Late 2012 coastal SF musical adventures of sound, sensibilities, friendship, melodies, and pop images of blues & greens." Their unfathomably sunny and happy pop sound is a cure-all for the woes of modern living, based around the incredibly infectious bubblegum vocals of their frontwoman and backed by an impeccable horn section, piano riffs, and ambling guitar.

Graham Patzner, Will Lawrence, Nick Cobbett, and CHarles Lloyd.
-From Oakland, California.
-The youngest of three brothers and the son of two musicians, Graham Patzner didn't have much choice. Starting on piano at age five and then moving on to violin, trumpet, and guitar, the Whiskerman singer and frontman has cultivated a unique sound that is hard to pinpoint. His voice ranges from smoky to soaring, while his songs span a wide array of moods and genres, yet always remain soulful. Behind him is a tight band of professional musicians, and together they are quickly becoming a force in the SF Bay Area. 

Mild Meddle
Greg, Irys, Trevor, Ben, and Kyle.
-From San Francisco, California.
-The Mild Meddle project is the brainchild of singer/songwriter Greg Griffin. The project and soon-to-be-launched debut album "Caledonia Quixotica" is a musical chronicle of Greg's 5 years spent in England, Ireland, and Scotland. In May 2011, he embared on a 6-week hitchhiking trip from the Southeast of England up to the Highlands of Scotland, armed with an old Soviet camera, a field mic and a homemade hydrophone (underwater microphone). He set out to capture the magical soundscapes and sonic essence of the rural British landscape and photographed and recorded lakes, rivers, waterfalls, farmlands, village pubs, and creeks. During that time, he sketched out an album. It would aim to paint the landscape of a pure, or innocent, agrarian existence in the Western World, one devoid of the technological inundation that has transformed our society so profoundly over the past 40 years. There are strong political, environmental and social themes behind the record and are many reccuring melodic and lyrical themes throughout.
