Bouncing from Charlotte, NC, to Bushwick, Brooklyn...front girl Julia Lauren set up camp in the desert sands of Phoenix, AZ and created The Foxies. Having strong influences of Billy Idol, Blondie, and The Cure, Julia Lauren adds glam pop from the early 80’s to the modern indie scene…unleashing an edgy eargasm of vintage revival. With hypnotic low guitars, groovy bass and drum pockets, light-airy keys and quirky vibrato vocals, The Foxies will make a bed in your head with their contagious hooky tunes.
Finally settling (for the time being) in Nashville, TN, the members have released their highly anticipated EP "Oblivion."
Smart Objects is the new project from Benjamin A. Harper (Magnolia Sons, The Comfies) featuring former and current members of Nashville's The Future, ELEL, Gardening, Not Architecture and Luthi/The Alarms. Smart Objects brand of angular, thinking man’s rock is smart but accessible.
Smart Objects is a natural but exciting progression from Harper's 2015 solo album, Get Thee Behind Me. Pop sensibility handed down by classic influences like The Zombies, Bowie and Nilsson filtered through a modern, quirky aural inventiveness to create sonically interesting compositions that would fall easily into the catalogues of Beck or Spoon.
Vacation Manor is a fourpiece indie rock band based out of Nashville, TN consisting of Nathan Towles (guitar, vocals), Dane Spearman (bass), Cole Young (drums), and Carson Cody (keys). The band formed in the fall of 2014 after meeting at a music festival in Lynchburg, VA while two of the members were attending college.The group released their debut EP Girl, Say in March of 2016 which has since received over 3.5 million streams on Spotify in addition to being picked up on playlists in stores such as Starbucks, Gap, Banana Republic, and more. The group has headlined shows across the eastern US and opened for acts such as Dawes, The Lone Bellow, Colony House, Dave Barnes, and many more. After a successful Kickstarter campaign in the spring of 2018, the band headed out to Joshua Tree, CA to record their followup record, Everything I Can't Say Out Loud, with producer Charlie Stavish (Ryan Adams, Imagine Dragons, The Wombats, Foster the People).
