After the success of his debut self-titled EP, Colin Rigsby, A.K.A. Vesperteen, took the world by storm with a non-stop schedule of touring across the map. His travels connected him with his passionate fanbase, often referred to as “The Vesperteam”, who will line up down the block to watch the alt-pop Artist perform his electrifying stage-show. Rigsby, who performs standing up at a glowing drum-kit while singing, has been performing as Vesperteen since 2015 when he launched the solo project following his term as the full-time drummer in House Of Heroes.
In 2018, three years after the release of the ‘Vesperteen EP’, Colin Rigsby returned to the studio to create his sophomore record ‘The Hype Is Dead’. Inspired by his desire to create music that is will meaningfully connect with people in a lasting and timeless way rather than just being a weekly trend or buzz.
With only two releases, Vesperteen has already garnered over 3 million streams on Spotify and 50,000 highly engaged fans across social media platforms, all as an independent artist.
Manatree formed around 2009 when four longtime friends were entering high school. Drawing from early pop and rock influences like the Strokes and Wolf Parade, mathy bands like Maps and Atlases, and the exploratory qualities of Wilco and Broken Social Scene, Manatree wrote high energy, math-influenced pop songs with a simple lineup of two guitars, bass and drums. These efforts culminated in the band’s self-titled debut album, released on Egghunt Records.
After Manatree’s self-titled release, the band became gradually more interested in electronic music, everything from pop-oriented artists like Sylvan Esso and Frank Ocean, to the more experimental Actress and Oneohtrix Point Never. While keeping true to their guitars-bass-drums lineup and energetic live performances, the band is now beginning to incorporate elements of this music into their vocals, compositions and instrumentation. Manatree hopes to blend these influences for a unique and personal release later this year, which they are currently recording. The band also plans to tour consistently both before and after this release.
