Vaadat Charigim
Yuval Haring (guitar, vocals), Yuval Guttmann (drums) and Dan Bloch (bass guitar)
from Tel Aviv, Israel

Prior to the band's establishment, frontman Yuval Haring was a member of the Berlin-based band TV Buddhas. After returning to Israel, Haring decided to use his previously written songs for a new band and contacted drummer Yuval Guttmann and bassist Dan Bloch. The trio started to rehearse in a rehearsal room located in the bomb shelter of an elementary school and named themselves "Vaadat Charigim."[2] The band's debut album, The World is Well Lost was produced by Kyle “Slick” Johnson, who is known for his work for Modest Mouse and Wavves, and was recorded in band's Tel Aviv-apartment. It was released in 2013 through Anova Music and Burger Records.[1][3] In 2014, the band embarked their first United States tour.

Jordan Corso
from San Francisco, CA- 

Cotillon is the musical pseudonym of Jordan Corso, a singer, songwriter, and guitarist whose music is a fusion of indie rock, psychedelia, surf guitar, and pop from various eras, all filtered through Corso's oblique but engaging lyrical sensibilities. The Cotillon story begins when Corso was living in Los Angeles and working an unrewarding office job; Corso had been playing guitar since he was a child, and he started working on songs during his lunch breaks to relieve the monotony. A busted romance gave Corso plenty to write about, and eventually he opted to form a band to perform his new material. Corso named the project Cotillon and released its first EP, Votive Flower, in the fall of 2012. The EP received enthusiastic reviews from the West Coast indie press, and a second EP, White Roses, appeared in the spring of 2013. Chet "JR" White of the indie pop act Girls was bowled over by the first two EPs from Cotillon, and offered to produce an album for the group. The band booked time at EastWest Studios (formerly Western Recorders, where the Beach Boys cut Pet Sounds), and Corso later traveled to San Francisco to do overdubs and mixing with White at his home studio. Corso fell in love with San Francisco and relocated to the Bay Area, with a rotating cast of musicians eventually replacing the original Cotillon lineup. Cotillon's self-titled full-length debut album was released in January 2015 on Burger Records. - Mark Deming, AllMusic

The Soonest
Young Lee - Guitar/Lead Vocals, Liam Mountain O'Neill - Drums, Alex Stack - Bass, Eric Sugatan - Guitar
CJ. Bergmen - Keys/Guitar/Vocals
from San Francisco

It's been a busy couple years for the guys in The Soonest. They've tirelessly worked on creating music that grows with every listen. The San Francisco quintet, comprised of members Young Lee (guitars/vocals), Andrew Wales (drums), Alex Stack (bass), Mark Quitevis (guitar), and CJ Bergmen (keys/guitar/vocals) started as a side project that quickly turned into a full band as they discovered their sound which has been described as rich and haunting and has been compared to bands such as The National, Bloc Party, and Arcade Fire. The members' diverse geographical backgrounds also help bring different perspectives to the music seeing how the members come from cities such as Atlanta, Boston, St. Louis, Los Angeles, and San Jose.

The Soonest is preparing to follow up on their last EP, Lions At Your Door, with their first full length album. They have already captured the attention of many listeners as well publications such as CMJ, Performer Magazine, Deli Magazine, and Sonicbids and with their album, they're ready to showcase a new set of songs that build upon their already full sound.
