Combine a high energy, in your face live performance, with a melodic yet edgy original sound packed full of hooks and huge choruses, and you have the product of the hard rock band Prospect Hill. Hailing from the Merrimack Valley, an area just 20 minutes north of Boston, MA, the group is comprised of 5 long time best friends who are nothing short of charismatic, each unique in there own way, yet equally driven by a passion to rise to the top of the music industry.
The Jackson Rider
The Jackson Rider is a music outfit that hails from Philadelphia. As brothers and musicians, they have come together to create and perform live original music. In the vein of Rock, Rhythm & Roots, Hip Hop and Soul, TJR likes to occasionally stroll the fine line of fusion. Take a little bit of Sublime, a pinch of Citizen Cope, a hint of the Avett Brothers, and you’ve got yourself a slice of Jackson Rider Pie.
Shake That Bear
Shake That Bear is more than just a few guys that jam out in a basement a few times a month. Since solidifying their lineup in May 2011, the five members that form Shake That Bear have transformed their creation into one of the worst-kept secrets of northern New Jersey. With their unique blend of pop-style guitar riffs and catchy vocals with an aggressive and unrelenting push that one would normally attribute to hardcore bands, they have created something so unheard of that concert promoters struggle to find bands that sound similar enough to match them; thus, the band wins over metalcore/thrash crowds and pop-punk fans alike.
Silent Sleep was formed in 2009 and quickly collaborated and set out to play a modern yet new found perspicuous form of rock music. Heavily influenced by early 90's bands like Tool, Foo Fighters and The Smashing Pumpkins. As well as alternative rock bands like 30 seconds to mars, Circa Survive, and Silverstein. The creation of a Modern and edgy sound came together naturally.
The members of the band are natives of New Jersey and New York. After teaming up with Producer/ Engineer Vince Ratti (who's past credits include August Burns Red, Circa Survive and Saosin to name a few) Silent Sleep recorded a full length Album "Land Meets Sky"and the band embraced there many layers of sound.
After Recording with Vince the band decided to add more songs with a Hard Rock sound to the album. The Band traveled to Cleveland Ohio to record three other songs with Producers Jeremy Stimper and Johnny Burke. "Land Meets Sky" was then mastered by Bill Henderson former guitarist of the band Thursday. It was self released in December 2010 on Itunes, Amazon and several other online stores.
After tapping into an underground revolution of internet fans from around the world and a few offers from labels. Silent Sleep made it apart of there permanent agenda to play in front of as many new faces as possible and give the best performances.
In March of 2011 the band did a successful east coast tour to support the release of Land Meets Sky. Managing to consistently remain relevant regardless of if they perform with Rock, Metal or Punk Rock groups the bands style is always perceived with great review. This is just the beginning of a continued relentless pursuit to spread the name SILENT SLEEP across the world.
