Maria Del Pilar (Casete, Mexico): Equal parts pop-lover and punk-rocker, María del Pilar mixes her DIY riot grrrl roots and penchant for bilingual lyrics to create melodic, sweet, and tough-as-nails pop anthems that rock. As the lead singer of Los Abandoned, she planted the seeds for what blossomed into the current new wave of U.S. Latin Alternative sounds. On her own, María del Pilar draws on her experiences as an immigrant Latina to create infectious, hook-driven sounds like we first heard on her 2015 album Songs + Canciones I; where the single "En el Dancefloor" made it on Mexico's top 10. A highly awaited follow up is due out February 2019.

The new record, “Songs + Canciones II”, which enlists Filip Nikolic of Poolside for production duties, is a sonically lush tropical playground. María Del Pilar’s effervescent songwriting shines alongside her friends invited to collaborate, like members of No Doubt, Fitz+Tantrums, Las Cafeteras, and Chicano Batman.

Twin Seas (East LA): Twin Seas, being born out of the culturally rich area of East Los Angeles, derives it's sound from the warm beach vibes of sunny California. This West Coast band was started by duo, Eduardo Bueno (Vocals/Guitar) and Jose Cruz (Guitar/Keys), who had the idea to blend their love of cheeky 60’s songwriting with the sonic palette of the 80’s. Accompanied by rhythm backbone, Fabian Marquez (Bass) and Carlos Canovas (Drums/Vocals), an essence of groove was injected into mix. Twin Seas is a band creating a new platform of music for years to come.
