Night Talks
Night Talks
Night Talks is an alternative rock band based in Los Angeles, California. With vocals that are equal parts angelic and razor-tipped, bass and drums that drive, and powerful, shimmering guitars, they'll remind you of the first time you stayed in your room all night listening to a record.
Paul Hernandez
From Southern California Paul Hernandez has made a name as one of the best Blues guitar player on the west coast.
Draag
Draag
Draag started in the fall of 2013 as the solo recording project of Adrian Acosta (guitar, programs, vocals) who would go on to recruit the rest of the band mid-way through the process of recording their first LP. With Jessica Huang (guitar, keys, samples and vocals), Adrian De La Cruz (guitar), Nick Kelly (bass) and Ernie Estrada (drums), the band doesn't play by genre conventions. But, are very shy and accepting that life is often disappointing. In April of 2014, Draag released their debut album. The album was positively received by many blogs, with much anticipation to see the band live. On July 24th 2014, Draag played their very first show at the very intimate LOT 1 Cafe in Echo Park, to a capacity crowd with very little promotion. The show was later described by Buzzbands LA writer Kevin Bronson as "A blissfully ear bleeding experience".
Twin Temple
Twin Temple
TWIN TEMPLE is a Goth-Soul, Satanic Doo-Wop band.

Fronted by newlyweds Alexandra & Zachary James, TWIN TEMPLE dwells within a dark legacy of classic American music: from the funeral jazz & Voodoo of New Orleans, to the haunting sounds of Delta blues murder ballads, to the noir-1920’s big band sounds of smoky Prohibition speakeasies. Their live show features a full 7 piece band, all clad in black: a tight-knit group of Los Angeles musicians and long-time collaborators: Robin Ryder (drums) Aaron Orbit (bass) and Jeffrey Howell (keys), as well as baritone sax and trumpet.

TWIN TEMPLE recently co-produced their debut 6 song EP with acclaimed engineer & producer Kevin Mills (Paul McCartney, Brian Wilson, Michael Bublé, Prince), and collaborated with Jared Tankel (Budos Band, Charles Bradley) and trumpet player & arranger Todd Simon (Solange Knowles, Kelis, Macy Grey, Janelle Monae), a former member of Daptone Records’ the Dap-Kings, renowned for their work with the late & great Sharon Jones, and skyrocketing to fame with Amy Winehouse’s Back To Black. TWIN TEMPLE recorded at their own home studio, Starry Eyes (prev. GRAMMY-award winning producer Dave Cobb’s Studio 1974) and the studio of Wendy Melvoin & Lisa Coleman (Prince & The Revolution) at Henson Studios, Los Angeles. Wendy & Lisa graciously gave the team full use of not only their inspired space, filled with Prince memorabilia, GRAMMYs and rare photographs, but also their lifetime collection of instruments & recording gear--including one of Prince’s famed Telecaster guitars. The resulting EP paints a sonic landscape that injects America's hallowed musical heritage with a surprising blend of gothic romance, Luciferian magick, macabre humor, and brash contemporary topics inspired by the candor of confessional poetry.
