Wayfarer

August 23, 2014

Like many, Nik Piscitello started screaming in his parents’ garage, lost in the ennui and youthful hopefulness so often found in the Southern California suburbs. In his early 20s, he performed in a group called Spark Of Life.

 After two more attempts he created a new band Wayfarer, but it wasn’t really a band at all. A portrait of a man very much trying to come to grips with adulthood, armed with little more than his heart and his songs.

Decorator

June 21, 2014

The term DECORATOR has officially been redefined, though Merriam Webster may not accept the new entry.

They turned out to be a perfect match. Soon they were not only collaborating on songs together, but also happily married. They spent the next couple years working on new material and perfecting their sound.

Leftover Cuties

To call Leftover Cuties retro or throwback would be too easy, and frankly dismissive. Sure, the music fits beside Billie Holiday, but it’s also current in its sex appeal, its sophistication, its confidence. The Cuties’ music – plied with upright bass, accordion, the brushed drums, and yes, ukulele – is not slavishly old-timey, but honors its forebears in the right way. Melody. Sharp playing. Stylized, confident, character-laden singing.

Well known as the band behind the theme song for The Big C, Leftover Cuties have also made a name for themselves playing shows around their hometown of Los Angeles. With two EPs and an album under their belt, the band will be releasing their next full length album this year, and continuing to captivate audiences around the world.

The Peach Kings draw their sound and inspiration from the smoky smooth crackle of blues, folk, and soul vinyls as well as the hypodermic tones synthesized in various beat laboratories across the globe. Stripped down, The Peach Kings' power is derived from Paige's hauntingly sensual vocals combine with Steven's complementary rhythm and picking.
