City Of The Weak : https://cityoftheweak.wordpress.com/
From small town Montana to the streets of Minneapolis with a guitar and a fearless attitude. That's how it all started for firecracker Stef w/ an F as she began building City of the Weak 5 years ago as a teenager. Add fierce guitarist Brent Lindblad & powerhouse Cody on bass and they became the unstoppable force they are today. With festivals like Chicago Open Air, Northern Invasion, Warped Tour dates, South by So What?!, and Rock Fest under their belt, they are quickly becoming a crowd favorite at every live appearance. They began touring in 2012, and by Spring 2014 were rolling across the country full time, clocking around 120 shows a year. After being featured on EMG TV and receiving 900,000 views on their first five music videos, City of the Weak premiered their self-produced video for "Ungrateful" March 8th, 2017 on VEVO.
City of the Weak captures a modern rock 'n roll sound that is so perfectly defined, combining catchy pop melodies with rhythmic riffs and moving bass lines to create a genre of their own. They are best known for their intensity on stage, as well as their big personalities off the stage. Their first full-length album, produced by Craig Owens, will be available in 2017, accompanied by main stage performances at Rock USA & Rock Fest Cadott in July. Like Muen Magazine said, "City of the Weak is going to be a band to look out for in 2017 and beyond," and you're damn right they are.
Echo Black : https://www.echoblackmusic.com/
Formed by front-man Danny Blu in 2015, Echo Black is a dance rock band based in New York City. Drawing on the differing influences of each unique member, Echo Black sets out to make evocative and visceral music you can feel in your bones.
New York City-based pop/rock foursome Echo Black is comprised of members whose musical inspirations range from basement punk to Frank Sinatra, and everything in between. The boys credit their unique, catchy, pop-flavored sound to their writing process; echoing one idea off another and, bouncing components around until the song begins to speak to them. Danny Blu (vocalist) and Billy Long (drums, keys) have roots that go back as far as the high school marching band. They picked up Felix Skiver (guitar, vocals) and Rob Gnarly (bass, vocals) along the way and have been inseparable since. As if their blood-pumping music wasn’t enough, their live show is something you have to see to understand. Nothing short of an electrical storm of energy, Echo Black is not an act to be missed.
In Loving Memory : https://www.facebook.com/InLovingMemoryNY
In Loving Memory hit the ground running with their powerful debut single, "All Systems Go" in November 2014. The single was written to deliver the band’s mission to create music that strikes the perfect balance between innovation and accessibility, with a result of genuine music that is enjoyed by the trained musician and the casual listener alike. Their Debut EP "Stand My Ground" was released in summer 2015 through online retailers such as iTunes, Spotify, and Apple Music.
During fall of 2015, In Loving Memory had the opportunity to open for Time Flies and Walk the Moon at Stony Brook University’s Back to the Brook, performing for 750 people, making it their biggest show to date. After spending the rest of the year promoting their EP release, the band took their live show on the road and embarked on the Black Sheep Never Sleep tour the following spring. After dazzling audiences across the country with their signature sound, In Loving Memory went on to release their experimental and heartfelt 2nd EP “Introspective” in June 2017. After rigorously promoting “Introspective” on various dates of Vans Warped Tour, In Loving Memory celebrated the release by headlining the renowned Gramercy Theatre in New York City to an audience of 450 people. The band will continue to promote the EP and get ready to tour again in 2018.

"I want everyone to know that perfect people are not real...and real people are not perfect. It is possible to embrace your inner demons and turn them into art.
