Shelf Life is the eclectic solo project of long time Philadelphia musician Scotty Leitch. From the small steel town of Coatesville to the city of brotherly love in 2008, Leitch briefly attended Temple University. After making a name for himself in the local scene as a drummer, bassist, and part time sound engineer, he decided to embark on a musical journey focused solely around his own personal experiences. "I found myself playing 3 basement shows a week, backing sometimes 5 different bands and finally realized my efforts were better suited for a single musical outlet. I love people and I love music but the two rarely meshed in a way that I found gratifying." says Leitch. "Three years ago a man in a van ran a stop sign and crushed the entire lower portion of my right leg. Everything changed after that. I ditched the 4 track, bought a computer, and began writing songs I believed were representative of me as a musician and a human being." Influences on his debut record "Everyone Make Happy" range from Ween to Modest Mouse, Pinback to more recent acts such as Real Estate, Alex G, or Elvis Depressedly.
Seagulls is a four-piece, mid- tempo, gravelly pop punk band from the bustling metropolis that is Atlanta, GA. Formed in 2012 and fueled by cheap beer and questionable cylindrically-shaped gas station cuisine, they traipse through dive bars and divier basements throughout the southeast playing anthemic punk screeds meant for pounding tallboys and pumping fists. They've released one self-recorded EP- 'All the World's Wars' in 2013 and are in the process of releasing a followup.
