-The Devil In California: Classic but heavy-as-hell rock, you know you’re in for something big and heavy when you first lay eyes on these guys, and that’s just what you get. They bring their own brand of heavy rock, with low-slung guitars, attitude, impeccable musicianship, and soaring 3 and 4 part harmonies that crush with historic rock power and finesse.

Hailing from the broad, cracked streets of West Oakland California, The Devil In California have set out to create new rock music, and bring it to the world. They do that in-between thing. It’s heavy, but not metal. It’s sing-alongy, but not sappy.

In the beginning, Jamie and his musical partner in crime, Matt Stewart laid the groundwork for this heavy, low, southern-influenced rock concept. The “audition”, and immediately subsequent induction of seasoned rock vocalist Tony Malson made them a band, but they still wanted more from this sound. In search of the perfect “big rock wall of guitars”, TDIC hunted for a second gunslinger. While recording their first demo, they found him in Snake Green (Skinlab, Re-ignition).

The band exploded into existence seemingly all at once! In a couple short years they found themselves on stage at amazing Bay Area venues such as Slims, DNA Lounge, Brick and Mortar, The New Parish, and The Fillmore! They were sharing stages with nationals including Three Days Grace, Black Star Riders, Skid Row, Crobot, Truckfighters, Charm City Devils, Prong, The Supersuckers, Motor Sister, Tracii Guns, and John Corabi (of Motley Crue fame). Their debut album release show at San Francisco’s DNA Lounge was SOLD OUT!!!

The Devil In California’s “Longer Ride Down” came out in 2015 on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, Spotify, HearNOW, LASTFM, and most other online outlets worldwide. The album debuted at #7 on CMJ’s Hard Rock chart. They have already released two singles and videos – “Black Hand” and “Empty Rooms”. Their third single and brand new video coming soon!

After some honing of the sound, some touring, and some amazing fill-ins from some great drummers and great friends, TDIC finally really knew what they really needed in a drummer, and in a band mate. They announced their permanent drummer, Andy Galeon (Death Angel, Spiral Arms) in 2016!

With the family complete, they’re heading for the recording studio, and headed for the world!

Keep an ear out.

-Founded 2011 in the San Francisco Bay Area, Swamphammer has rapidly evolved into a local fixture.  The unique, diverse roots of each member has produced the eclectic powerhouse of sound that is Swamphammer....a heavy hard rockin' bluesy metal slide guitar based band with fierce vocals and high energy rhythm that keeps you coming back for swampy seconds!

This quintet embodies a mixture of the fierce, dynamic vocals of Sean Frazier, sweet southern slide riffs of Stephen Lynch, exquisite progressive shredding of Marc Marchetti  and unique ballsy bass of Laura Scott.

-Some crazy robot at Pandora says:
“Features Hard Rock roots, a subtle use of vocal harmony, mild rhythmic syncopation, varying tempo and time signatures, and minor key tonality.”
