Cutty Flam
Cutty Flam
Cutty Flam is a three-piece rock n’ roll band from the suburbs of the San Fernando Valley. Their sound is both retro and modern; with a tinge of Spanish language vocals it mixes genres to produce their very own sonic signature, and accurately reflects their Angeleno upbringing. Shortly after self-releasing their first album “Robot Heart” in 2014, the band signed with indie Burger Records. After 3 years of playing in the Los Angeles music scene, Cutty Flam developed a fiery live sound and is ready to take their music to new places in their upcoming Sophomore album "Shapes of Sound".

Career Highlights: Opening up for legends like "The bad girl of rock n' roll" Ronnie Spector, "Queen of Rockabilly" Wanda Jackson, & "Chicano Rock Pioneers" Thee Midniters. A Sold-Out Show w/Shannon & The Clams & a Northern-California tour with Nick Waterhouse.
Summer Twins
Summer Twins
Some may say that Summer Twins are more than a band. For sisters Chelsea and Justine it’s a world of art and they are the creators.

Born and raised in Riverside, CA, where the sun never stops shining, the Brown sisters began creating from an early age. Surrounded by old records, vintage clothes, and classical music lessons, the Twins’ aesthetic began to take root. By their early teens, inspired by punk bands like The Ramones and The Donnas, the sisters formed their first band with Justine behind the drums and Chelsea on guitar.

The two have been playing ever since, establishing Summer Twins in 2008 with a rotating cast of friends on guitar and bass. Best known for their dreamy harmonies and fuzz-driven garage rock, the band refreshes familiar hints of the ‘50s and ’60s, creating their own blend of “nostalgia-pop.” Within every carefully crafted song there also lies a melancholy that is both heart wrenching and beautiful, invoking an escape much like the band’s whimsical imagery.

Whether it’s writing songs, documenting tours, writing and co-directing their music videos, or creating album art, the Summer Twins lifestyle is one in which anything can be made into art. It’s this spark of imagination that caught the attention of clothing lines overseas, allowing Chelsea and Justine to fulfill dreams of working with Japanese fashion brands and touring the country. With their crafty DIY approach, and a genuineness that is pure and contagious, the sisters have garnered a devoted fan base across the globe.

Now living in Los Angeles, the sisters continue to live out their dreams while curating their online store, The Good Things Shop. In between Summer Twins gigs, they’re busy with Easy Love – a second band in which Justine steps out from behind the drums to take center stage. In everything they do, Summer Twins stay true to their vision and uphold a work ethic that sets them apart. Beyond the realm of music, they illuminate a reminder that creativity is boundless… as long as you’re willing to dream.
