Liv Slingerland (LA): Liv Slingerland is an alternative rock singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based in Los Angeles, CA. In August 2017, Liv completed a self-release of her band’s first three singles, “Shouldn’t Bother,” "Hold On To," and "Come Back to Me," each co-produced by Scott Heiner. Slingerland’s music is influenced by a mix of catchy, guitar-driven rock bands including Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Chrissie Hynde and The Pretenders, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, and The Killers and songwriters ranging from Joni Mitchell and Jackson Browne to Elliott Smith and Lucy Dacus. Over the past two years, Liv has been playing live with her band at Los Angeles venues such as the Hi Hat, Bootleg Theater, and The Echo, in addition to local festivals including Chinatown Summer Nights and Echo Park Rising, named the Best Music Festival by LA Weekly (2016). January 2019 marks the release of Slingerland’s EP, Crush Me, a follow-up to her first three singles, recorded with long time collaborators Genna Projansky on bass and India Pascucci on drums in the hills of Laurel Canyon and North Hollywood. Liv continues to write and collaborate with her band and various producers and songwriters exploring her affinity for rock and pop craftsmanship in her work.

Cheekface (LA): Cheekface is a rock combo from Los Angeles made up of guitarist and singing person Greg Katz, bassist and other singing person Amanda Tannen, and drummer Mark Edwards. Inspired by the great American talk-singers like Jonathan Richman, Stephen Malkmus and Lou Reed, and British indie rock bands like Wire and The Fall, Cheekface released their first single "Glendale" in 2018. Indie Shuffle lauded the song as "an art-pop gem." The trio's second single "Dry Heat/Nice Town" soon followed, a playfully political song that KCRW called "a treat." Cheekface released their debut long player "Therapy Island" in March 2019 on the New Professor label.

Cuffed Up (LA): Cuffed Up is a Post-Sad-Punk Quartet from Los Angeles.

The band started as a curious jam between Ralph Torrefranca, Sapphire Jewell, Joe Liptock and Vic Ordonez in mid 2018 inspired by the current UK Punk explosion with bands like IDLES, Shame and Fontaines D.C. as well as 90s influences like Sunny Day Real Estate and American Football. By the end of 2018 the band came out with a handful of songs and Cuffed Up was born.
