-from San Francisco, CA
-Carpool Tunnel is a band that emerged from the San Francisco music scene around 2017 and loves to put on a show. With touring being an integral part of their songwriting and functionality, the four songwriters, Ben Koppenjan (Lead vocals, Rhythm Guitar), Bradley Kearsley (Lead Guitar, Vocals), Michael “Junior” Reed (Drums, Keys, Vocals), and Kalani Faith (Bass, Vocals) are set to release their sophomore record ‘Don’t Let Them Pass You By’ on October 20th, 2023. Their experience in studios and touring led the band to make an album that showcases their full musicianship as not only songwriters but also as experienced touring artists. All four members have uniquely influenced the record with their appreciation of both classic and modern music. Although most songs have been written in a stripped-back environment, such as strumming an acoustic guitar on the porch, when the album was brought to the studio the band found themselves adding a playful sonic landscape to their music. This evolution in their songwriting over several years has crafted an album that is accessible to many different kinds of listeners and has expanded on the sounds of the music scene that they came from.

-Chase Petra is a band that exists out of necessity. In other words, within this project, making music is not so much a choice as it is an inherent and inextricable feature of life.
Their debut album Liminal features quarter-life-crisis pop rock tunes rooted in early 2000s pop punk and indie rock. Meanwhile, the songs’ subject matter runs the gamut, covering everything from issues of social justice (i.e. sexism, classism) to personal growing pains and on to topics of a more nefarious denotation. Hailing from Long Beach, CA, Chase Petra is willing to go just about anywhere and try just about anything and they are very much looking forward to the future.

-Similar Kind originated as just a few friends jamming in a garage and has blossomed into a five piece band playing shows all over the US. Similar Kind has played with acts such as Sunflower Bean, Bad Bad Hats, Hot Flash Heat Wave, No Vacation & more. The band has been described as indie pop, reminiscent of The Cure and Talking Heads, "dance-ready synth-pop equal parts R&B, pop, and indie rock”. In 2022 the band released a new EP “Commercial Break”.
