The National Parks
Indie infused pop
The National Parks
-from Salt Lake City, UT
-The National Parks was formed by Brady Parks in 2013 in Provo, Utah and has since independently released three studio albums. Upon the release of their debut LP, Young (2013), the band climbed to #13 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart and with their sophomore record, Until I Live (2015), the 4-piece became a Billboard Regional Heatseeker. The National Parks' third studio album, Places, was released in late 2017 followed by a deluxe version in February 2018.
In the first month after the release of Places (2017), the record had been streamed more than 1,000,000 times on Spotify alone with individual tracks landing on major Spotify playlists like Pop Chillout, Indie Pop and Morning Commute. Despite operating as a true independent, the band has built and maintained an impressive following with a Spotify monthly listenership nearing 400,000 and appearances at SXSW, CMJ, Snowmass Mammoth Fest, Oyster Ridge Music Festival, School Nights at Bardot's. Praise has come from major press outlets such as NPR, Paste, Baeble Music, The Vinyl District, and
The National Parks create atmospheric and “anthemic indie-folk as boundless as their name would suggest” (Paste Magazine) centered around male/female harmonies backdropped by guitar/piano/violin instrumentation. The band’s earliest touring was done as a three-piece but as the music has evolved, so has the band. A wide cast of musicians have joined as touring members of The National Parks but by 2015, the group had settled into a consistent four-piece setup with original members Brady Parks (vocals/guitar) and Sydney Macfarlane (vocals/keys) playing alongside, Cam Brannelly (drums) and Megan Parks (violin)
Lauren Luiz / Vocals
Zach DeGaetano / Vocals, Guitar
Tyler Thompson / Guitar
-from Los Angeles, CA
-WILD is a Los Angeles based trio comprised of Lauren Luiz (vocals), Tyler Thompson (producer/guitar) and Zach Daegatano (guitar/vocals). Hailing from Portland, Minneapolis, and Boston respectively, their paths did not intertwine until Tyler and Zach met through a mutual friend and began writing songs together. The only thing missing was the right singer who could complement their soulful melodies with pop sensibilities. It was not until Tyler and Zach met Lauren in 2016 that they felt complete. Lauren’s powerful vocals and strong topline was the perfect fit.
Their first single "Vagabond," which they independently released, has over 4 million streams. The song caught the attention of Mark Jowett, one of the founders of Nettwerk Music Group (Passenger, Angus & Julia), who promptly signed them.
-from Los Angeles, CA
-Through compelling songs and charismatic performances, singer-songwriter RIVVRS radiates an endearing and optimistic vision. His music connects the authenticity of Americana with the accessibility of pop, framed by the artist’s empathic voice and eminently approachable songcraft.
A Northern California native now residing in Los Angeles, RIVVRS — née Brandon Zahursky – has over 40 song placements across network television shows, and over 12 million Spotify streams.
His latest full-length album Cosmic Dream is due for a Fall 2018 release, and the lead single Don’t Give Up On Me is now available on Spotify and other listening platforms. While maintaining an extensive touring calendar, RIVVRS previously tracked a full-length release Unfamiliar Skin, the EP Hold On, and a variety of singles to augment these projects. Now co-producing his next release in Utah with Joshua James, he says that collaborating with other songwriters is fulfilling.
Buoyed by an animated onstage charm, he commands audiences with just his voice and an acoustic guitar, but he believes that his songs shine with a full band. “I love playing music with other people. To me, that’s where the connection and chemistry come in, and where the songs open up.”
Raised on classic rock courtesy of his father, his early years were spent moving with his blended family across California, Washington and Oregon, then back to the Bay. It was a nontraditional upbringing. He remembers at one point staying in a halfway house with his parents, a shelter where addicts could get clean.
As he now expands his audience through successive national tours, RIVVRS moves into a new phase in his creative future. “I spent the accumulation of my young adult years catching up, and realizing that I could be the person I want to be,” he says. And he believes that interpretation is the power behind his music. “I hope people listen to the songs that I have, and can somehow hear what is happening in their own lives. Everyone wants to feel a connection.”
