The Main Squeeze
The Main Squeeze, with deep musical roots sprouted in the Midwest, have scored their lives at each twist and curve. While starting out as a party band at Indiana University, their forthcoming April 28th release “Without a Sound” illustrates their increasing musical maturity and creativity inspired by their new home in Los Angeles.
If maturity comes with experience, “Without a Sound” reflects this. The Main Squeeze has spent several years building their foundation since being championed by producer Randy Jackson: they have played Red Rocks; shared the stage with The Roots, Aloe Blacc, Jane’s Addiction, Umphrey’s McGee, and Trombone Shorty; and performed at music festivals like Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, Summer Camp, and High Sierra.
The Main Squeeze is a blend of soul and hip-hop, funk with rock. They know their sound is “soulful, powerful, and unique” (Newman). Rolling Stone agrees in their recent critique of a live show: “Lead singer Corey Frye’s powerfully soulful vocals forms the foundation of an energetic set.”
These underpinnings are important yet The Main Squeeze’s true focus will always be to “strive to reach people” through their beat loving heart in their music. “We are devoted to making great music for people to get lost in and to feel real emotion and love, and also to dance and enjoy life. And it’s only just the beginning” (Newman). Billboard believes they have touched on this goal: “Funk runs deep in their DNA. Dare you not to two-step.”
The beats on “Without A Sound” are plentiful and it is balanced with emotion, a mix of vocals, and instrumentation of the band. Their vibe is simultaneously timeless and futuristic as they are inspired by the greats, yet have found a way to infuse their own genius into the mix.
The Main Squeeze appeals to your head, heart and body.

From slick guitar solos to soulful falsettos, anything and everything is fair game for argonaut&wasp.
CAVERNS is a Rock band from New York. They're raw, and what you see is what you get! The band's members, Nicola Wincenc and Russell Holzman are heavily influenced by a plethora of artists such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Band of Gypsies, Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers and more. Caverns has been described as "little terrors that have a knack for toe-curling guitar lines, and heavy psychedelic grooves." They are currently working with renowned GRAMMY-winning producer/engineer Warren Riker on a number of forthcoming releases.
