Charlie Hickey
Charlie Hickey
Charlie Hickey is an 18 year-old singer-songwriter, raised in South Pasadena. Since he was 14, he has been playing at venues around Los Angeles and has self released two EPs of original songs that have been glowingly reviewed and played on local radio stations, like KCRW and KCSN. Drawing on inspiration from everyone from Elliot Smith and Jeff Buckley to Elvis Costello and Aimee Mann, Hickey writes songs that are honest, soulful, obsessive and youthful but wise beyond their years. Hickey is Finishing High School at the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts while continuing to write, record and perform new music.
Derde Verde
Derde Verde
Derde Verde is an artful indie-rock trio that weaves shape-­shifting rhythms and melodic guitar lines with eruptive dynamics and intimate, heartfelt vocals. The L.A. based band named themselves after Val Verde, a rural valley town of coyotes, rolling hills, and big sky, an hour north of the city.

With a range of influences from shoegaze, to krautrock, to indie electronica, the band’s music has been described as “quietly melodic soundscapes that twist and turn like a wild stream, refusing to be pigeonholed” (LA RECORD). L.A. WEEKLY notes, “The spirits of bands like Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo and Spoon are all at work here, but not always in the way you’d expect. It’s nice to see a group putting some independence back into indie rock." LA RECORD calls Derde Verde "the closest thing Los Angeles has to its own Radiohead right now."

After touring the US and Europe in support of their last record “Let Me Be a Light", Derde Verde spent much of the year producing their new EP in a warehouse above a flower shop in Downtown LA. The EP is now finished and the band will be putting out a string of singles before the release of the full record, early 2017.

Their last EP, Let Me Be A Light, is out now on 12” Vinyl, CD, and download, and is now available on Apple Music, Spotify, iTunes, and Bandcamp.

​Derde Verde is Dylan McKenzie (lead vocals/guitar) Jonathan Schwarz (bass/vocals) & Matthias Wagner (drums)
