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.
Vista Kicks
Vista Kicks
Their debut EP Chasing Waves (2016) made Apple Music's Featured New Artists page and lived on the homepage of iTunes for four consecutive weeks. They've just completed a US and West Coast tour and anticipate releasing more dates soon. Vista Kicks' humble and elementary backgrounds found them playing for 'tips' on street corners, restaurants, and backyard patios across Northern California. They were mere kids at the time, growing up in suburbia, and considered a unique conversation piece to the personalities of their hometown (Roseville, CA). This was attributed to their unusual repertoire of songs; ranging from Frank Sinatra, Sam Cooke, and Otis Redding, to Nat "King" Cole and others. Now, similar to the mental and emotional revolutions that culminate within any 20-23 year old, their musical stylings have undergone serious change. Since the jazz they used to sharpen their teeth, to their most recent flagship, BABE, who's 'Make It Real', 'Circles' and 'Baby You're Right' pride themselves on being the catalyst that brought forth the Vista Kicks, they've arrived into a diverse ratatouille of traditional Rock N' Roll, Funk, and Pop. Their idea of making music is simple: provide honesty to the people who create it and to those who listen to it.
King Washington
King Washington
Drawing from diverse influences such as Grizzly Bear, The Crash Kings, The Talking Heads, The Beatles and Crosby, Stills & Nash, Los Angeles’ own King Washington are in the midst of creating the New California sound. By fusing classic vocal harmonies and lyrical melodies with a contemporary approach to songwriting, the band has created a unique sound that is as creative as it is familiar.

This album sees members Tyson Kelly (guitar, keys, vocals), George Krikes (lead guitar, vocals), and Billy Lee (bass, vocals) joined by David Contreras on drums. With two albums behind them, and a tour history that includes playing over 150 shows across the US since 2014 (sharing the stage with the likes of The Arctic Monkeys, Collective Soul, and Ambrosia), King Washington plans on continuing the trend of blowing audiences away across the nation... as one of LA Weekly's top live shows in Los Angeles.
Love Ghost
Love Ghost
Love Ghost is an indie rock band from Los Angeles made up of four teens-Finnegan Bell (Vocals, Guitar), Mya Greene (Viola), Ale Sierra (Drums) and Ryan Stevens (Bass). Enclosed is their 1 st EP- Love Ghost Vol. 1. Love Ghost was recently named one of the top bands for 2017 by Emerging Indie Bands.

The band has played in the music festivals Make Music Pasadena (2015 and 2016) and Echo Park Rising (2015 and 2016), and they have been the opening act for Smash Mouth, Ozomatli, Buckcherry, Berlin and The Tubes. Love Ghost has made several top ten lists (The Big Takeover, rock.current), and was selected as one of the top new bands by indie imagination radio (Netherlands).

The band’s live performance of "Forgive Me" has been number 1 on the Balcony TV charts the past 20 weeks, and is currently number 3 all-time. Their song "Mystery Box" was named song of the day by buzz bands LA and Little Indie Blogs, and “Friday Afternoon” has been named song of the day by Stereo Embers, New Lease Music and Fan Girl Rhythm.
