Rock 'n' Roll
-from Los Angeles, CA
-Excited to announce the release of our debut EP Lace & Layers here! This EP is about real life. It’s about wanting to be better and learning to love yourself, it’s about mental health and the walls we put up to protect ourselves, it’s about love and it’s about just having fun sometimes! We can’t tell you how much time, thought, and effort was put into every single detail of the EP. We’re so proud and excited for this to be out in the world and hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it. Thank you to everyone who helped make it happen and thank you to all who will listen.
-from Nashville, TN
-Nashville based singer/songwriter Johnny Gates isn't a rookie. He started his first band in high school, and immediately fell in love with music. Spending the first few years climbing up the ladder in his local music scene, Johnny and his band, RUNAWAY SAINTS, eventually moved to Nashville, TN to chase the dream.
Once in Nashville, he and his band had a chance to work with some of music's biggest names, such as Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum) and Dan Huff (Rascal Flatts, Thomas Rhett, Midland), sign to a major record label, and most importantly, focus his attention on songwriting.
After getting close enough to taste his dream, and even opening on tour for Rod Stewart, Johnny had to make a career defining decision, which was stepping away from the band, moving to Los Angeles, and going forward with just his guitar.
Since that day, Johnny has toured the US multiple times, landed a spot on a national network television show, played to a packed house at the Troubadour, and went to work writing and recording his debut solo project. But, before he was ready to release that project, Johnny had one more final step to take, and that was returning home to Nashville, to finally cross the finish line, that had evaded him for all those years.
Matt Jaffe (solo)
-from San Francisco, CA
-MATT JAFFE is a singer/songwriter from San Francisco. Cutting his teeth on open mics around the Bay Area, Matt started pursuing music more seriously when JERRY HARRISON of Talking Heads offered to produce his first record.
Since then, Matt has churned out more songs than he can remember the words to, oversaturated the market with gigs (opening for folks like MAVIS STAPLES, WILCO, and BLUES TRAVELER), and co-written with the likes of CHUCK PROPHET and TOM HIGGENSON of the Plain White T's.
With his band, Matt has played stages across the country, including The Fillmore, The Troubadour, and Irving Plaza, and has just released his third album of original material, THE SPIRIT CATCHES YOU, another installment in his campaign to bring the Guitar Gospel back to the masses.
