He Is we
He Is We is an indie pop band formed in Tacoma, WA. The duo consists of Rachel Taylor and Trevor Kelly. The band's first full length album, My Forever, was released November 2010. Their OLD DEMOS album can be downloaded at http://heiswe.bandcamp.com.
There is something unique and refreshing about Kenny Holland. Something that you truly must come in contact with to understand. His music is soulful and honest while still appealing to pop cravings. It quickly becomes hard to believe that, at just seventeen years old, it's possible to write ballads this powerful and hooks this infectious.
Holland has come a long way since his start growing up in Michigan and only performing at high school events. From playing sold-out shows, to recording a full-length record, to taking social networking by storm. It's only a matter of time before Kenny and his songs are recognized world-wide.
In a day and age where singer/songwriters are a dime a dozen, Kenny brings something new to the table. Check out his debut single, "So What", today!
Rookie Of The Year
Singer Ryan Dunson has come a long way since his upstart of Rookie of the Year as a solo project in 2002. At the time, he was living in Florida and writing the material that would become his debut record, "Having To Let Go." After nearly five years, two records, the addition of a full band and constant touring, Ryan Dunson and the rest of the guys don't believe that they have accomplished enough. The full band, now out of Fayetteville, North Carolina, consists of Dunson, Mike Kamerman (guitar), Pat Murphy (bass), Brandon Schade (guitarist), and David Whitney (drums).
In the same year that Rookie of the Year began, the band signed with Orlando, Florida's One Eleven Records after catching the ear of owner Brad Fischetti. In 2005, One Eleven re-released their debut record, "Having To Let Go" and the band began writing their sophomore album. The band chose producers Ed Rose and Matthew Malpass to produce their second album, "The Goodnight Moon," which was released on April 11th, 2006. The record has sold over 10,000 copies and has helped the band secure tours with artists such as Mae, Copeland, Mute Math, Cute Is What We Aim For, The Spill Canvas, Blackpool Lights and the Rocket Summer, just to name a few.
Rookie of the Year marched into 2007 with great eagerness and excitement. The band has managed to built a rapport with their fans, such that every person who attends show will leave satisfied. Their live show has built some buzz around the fact that it exhibits a raw energy that you would normally only see in a studio setting . It is this buzz that is now generating up to 500 fans per show. Rookie of the Year has a track record of constant touring that dates back to 2002 and even though "The Goodnight Moon" was released over a year ago, the band is showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, they have managed to balance their touring efforts with some down time in order to start writing for their third release, which is due to be released in the spring of 2008 on One Eleven Records. Keep an eye out for an explosion of Rookie of the Year in 2008. This could be your new favorite band.
"Mojave Nomads are an Alternative Rock band from Ogden, Utah doing things differently. With a fresh new sound that sinks in over time as you soak in the layers of complexity. It's something you continually enjoy over time and keep coming back to."
