As a classically-trained pianist and accomplished musician, Lydia René’s sound is best described as “indie, vibrant soul”. With influences ranging from Jill Scott and Phyllis Hyman to James Taylor and Carole King, Lydia’s blended sound will take audiences to a higher musical plateau.  

Lydia has shared the stage with many award-winning artists such as Eric Roberson, Jean Baylor, Jaguar Wright, and Wayna. She has also had the opportunity to work with acclaimed producers and musicians including Tejumold & Johari Newton (Lauryn Hill, Aretha Franklin, Jazmine Sullivan), Rick Carlos (Jennifer Lopez, Nelly), Harry Wilson (John Legend, Kindred The Family Soul), Damon “Mr. Dizzy Fingers” Bennett (Jay-Z, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake), and Stan Davis (Kindred The Family Soul, Kelly Rowland, Teena Marie). 

Born and raised in Mount Holly, New Jersey, Lydia gained her musical experience by performing at music venues all over nearby Philadelphia. Lydia now resides in Los Angeles, CA where she recently finished her debut studio album "Vintage Heart". Lydia teamed up with GRAMMY Award-nominated producer Jameel Roberts (Usher, J. Cole, Nicki MInaj) as well as producer / musician Harry Wilson (John Legend, Kindred The Family Soul)  & Rick Carlos (Nello, J-Lo) to create a sound all her own. She's the proud winner of the 2014 LAMN JAM competition (previously won by Aloe Blacc). Lydia also performed at the 2014 Taste Of Soul Family Festival (which draws a crowd of over 250,000) along with other performers such as Tyrese, Syleena Johnson, Tank, and Raheem Devaughn. In 2015 Lydia had the opportunity to sing a soul stirring rendition of "I Put A Spell On You" for the movie trailer campaign for the box office hit "The Perfect Guy". She also lent her voice to hit show EMPIRE on FOX by singing "Wade In The Water" with a stellar vocal ensemble for a commercial promo. Currently she is the featured vocalist in CHOBANI Yogurt's National Commercial Campaign singing "What The World Needs Now Is Love Sweet Love".

While Lydia René continues to build upon her ever-growing fan base, she hopes to one day reach the level of music’s greatest singer/songwriters and musicians. Her studio album "Vintage Heart" has already received great acclaim from music publications including SoulTrain, Philadelphia Weekly and SoulBounce. The album is now available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Play, and Bandcamp.

Dead Poet Society is a four piece band out of Boston, Massachusetts playing fretless instruments that create an uncanny wobble effect, and atypical distortion that sounds more like a vintage synth on steroids than an actual guitar. Their sound is both genre defying and defining. The band features singer Jack Underkofler, guitarist Jack Collins, bassist Nick Taylor, and drummer Will Goodroad.

The group attracted early fan attention with the release of their debut single Sound and Silence in 2014, and saw them gain a growing fanbase with the release of their AXIOM and DEMPSEY EPs that followed.

In 2016 their music was discovered by the influential Mexican blog PepeProblemas. Their review caught the attention of another up and coming rock band Sputnik, who invited DPS to open for them on their national tour of Mexico. The opportunity has lead to more tours south of the border and a rapidly growing fan base that will see the band return to Mexico in 2019.

September 2018 saw the release of single and video “American Blood,” the first time the band has worked with an outside producer and mixer, Englishman Alex Newport. The collaboration was so successful that Alex was asked to produce a further five songs that will be part of the band’s debut album set for release in the Spring of 2019. The album will also include two songs produced by Boonn (Grandson) and three more self-produced songs.

2019 will be the most exciting year yet in the band’s career, starting in February with a 22 date national tour as special guest of Andres, followed by the album release and tours of Mexico, Europe and the Midwest.

CARDS is the solo project of LA-based producer/songwriter, Mike O. After years of working with other artists in the studio and on the stage, he started dropping his own music under this moniker in late 2017. 

After a year of singles, some playlist adds by Spotify and some kind words from influential indie-blogs like HillyDilly and Alexrainbird, CARDS is finally releasing the full album and starting to play live shows.  Performances in 2019 are scheduled in NYC, LA and Philadelphia with many more dates to be announced soon including a European run of shows.

Los Angeles natives Dugan Cruz and Sam Sobo originally met in their late teens on what they call “an online dating site for musicians”. After forming Madus in 2013, Cruz and Sobo went through several lineup changes before deciding it best to stay a duo until the right members come along.

Juxtaposing blissful west coast indie against angsty alternative rock, their songs are reminiscent of the early 2000s garage rock revival groups like Franz Ferdinand and The Strokes. In the Spring of 2017 they started a regimen of writing, recording, and releasing one song a month. Since beginning this songwriting regimen they decided to self produce and record all their music out of Cruz’s garage. “After years of accommodating the time constraints and heavy cost of producers, we wanted to be able to focus on the music and not worry about all of that" said Sobo. With the goal being to “...just put music out there and see what sticks”, the duo have kept each release as organic as possible. No expensive PR, no sponsored social media ads, and no chasing of highly coveted “likes”. After releasing a few singles this way, Madus eventually struck a chord with their song “Find Another Girl” achieving over 40,000 cumulative streams. The song has just been made available on Spotify and all other major music platforms with “Play Pretend” as a B-side. Madus is continuing to record frequently and further hone in on their sound.

More shows and music releases currently brewing.
