-Unlikely Heroes is Hip-Hop/Punk Rock band from San Francisco, Ca. This eclectic group is synthesizing Hip-Hop and Punk with beats and melody that are fresh, exciting, and long waited for. Boasting with high energy, venue rocking jams, they also find balance with spacey, vibe-y anthems to create a well-rounded experience and depth in their art form. These Heroes truly cater to their “more than meets the eye” appeal. Aesthetically, they are a diverse group with a range of cultural and musical backgrounds. Sonically, they are insane Hip-Rockers that can cater to any crowd or venue without losing their Star Power in translation. They are set to release their debut EP in Q3 of 2016.

-Cannonballing into the scene, Civil Youth left their roots in Philadelphia to quickly take on the rest of U.S. (Independently) “You remind me of…” “How do you have so much energy on stage?”, “You guys are so different, but I love it!”. Fans and critics alike can’t quite put Civil Youth into a genre, and they’ve loved it ever since their start in 2015.
Civil Youth finds a way to fuse heavy guitars, electronic synths, Pop vocals, and fast rapping, into a song like no band has yet. At least not like this… After 8 national tours, sync placements in outlets like MTV & VH1, opening for Twenty One Pilots, Awolnation, & Grouplove, people are starting to see why these Philly boys are worth watching. Civil Youth’s highly anticipated 3rd full-length album is set for release on May 19th, 2017. You need to take notice why people can’t stop saying “Civil Youth is the next big thing”.-
Simon Lunche and friends
-from Berkeley, CA
-Simon Lunche is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from Berkeley, California. For nine years he was the creative force behind The Blondies, which he formed at age 9. He is Gibson Guitar’s youngest endorsed artist in its 114-year history, has self-produced 3 albums, and The Blondies were named one of “eight essential artists to watch” by LIVE105/CBS FM Radio San Francisco. All of this by the time he was 18 years-old. Simon’s music has been compared to The Beatles, Jeff Buckley, The Kooks, and other well known artists. You’ll hear hints of Jeff Buckley in his velvety voice, and the melodic sensibility of The Beatles in his songs. Simon brings an articulate, sophisticated voice to experiences of his generation. His influences are broad, ranging from John Mayer to Bob Dylan to John Williams. “I use my music as an emotional outlet, and try to make something that is real to me; something human”. It is fresh, original music, which recalls sounds you know and love.
