littleDNGR is a musical duo consisting of Grammy and Oscar nominated songwriters, Joshua Bartholomew and Lisa Harriton. Equal parts brooding and epic, this musical love-affair lives in a world of cinematic soundscapes, anthemic choruses, big riffs and electro-beats. We call it cinema grunge-pop.
Drinker began in Brooklyn, NY in 2016 as a collaboration between songwriter Aaron Mendelsohn and producer Ariel Loh who connected over their shared influences of artists such as Fever Ray, Bon Iver, and James Blake. Their debut EP, Happy Accident was described as “four tracks of chillwave inspired bliss” by Discobelle in 2017. The duo began operating bicoastally after Mendelsohn moved to LA and -- strengthened by support from KCRW and Spotify-curated playlists -- developed their latest single “Fragment II”, which charted at #1 on Hype Machine, and after two years of writing and collaboration will culminate in their debut LP, Fragments, out in Spring 2019 on B3SCI Records.
Charlie Hickey is an 18 year-old singer-songwriter, raised in South Pasadena. Since he was 14, he has been playing at venues around Los Angeles and has self released two EPs of original songs that have been glowingly reviewed and played on local radio stations, like KCRW and KCSN. Drawing on inspiration from everyone from Elliot Smith and Jeff Buckley to Elvis Costello and Aimee Mann, Hickey writes songs that are honest, soulful, obsessive and youthful but wise beyond their years. Hickey is Finishing High School at the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts while continuing to write, record and perform new music.
