The Kicks

The Kicks may be young, but they are quick to admit that in a decidedly non-hipster way, they do indeed plan to rock you. Never interested in moping, navel gazing or wallowing in the emotional muck and mire that permeates so much of the modern music culture, Jordan Phillips (lead vocals, rhythm guitar,) Adam Stark (lead guitar, keys, backing vocals,) Gabriel Anderson (bass, backing vocals) and Lucas Cummins (drums) intend to take your breath away with massive melodies, epic guitar riffs,
irresistible rhythms and lyrics that practically force you to sing along. Though perfectly comfortable in clubs, this is music made for stadiums and with every intention that's exactly where The Kicks are heading.

The Glass Cavalry

Tight lyrics. Eclectic, mellifluous textures. Lead riffs. Piano-driven grooves flowing to headbanging, palm-muted rhythm guitars you can dance to. The playfulness of Ludo, the fretboard ferocity of classic rock, with emphasis on melodic tension-and-release catharsis. Imagine a Third Eye Blind cake with Jimmy Page frosting, keyboard sprinkles, and vocally dual-gender candles.

Grant Barnum let's his guitar scream on stage, and his soul pour out his voice. Katie Lindhorst brings out the heart of underground music with her vocals and keyboards, and with Shannon Durington on bass, and Devon Henry on drums, our rhythm section keeps the music solid and soulful. As a band we're ready to fit bills for indie, alternative, or hard rock audiences on any stage.

These four Missouri soldiers have been under the moniker "The Glass Cavalry" for the past year, but the music you'll hear has been alive for much longer than that. Barnum started writing the skeleton of TGC years ago, scratching lyrics in notebooks, or chanting riffs in his head. He made sure to allow for my growth as a person, as a musician, and for the growth of the songs themselves. Muscle tissue came in the form of chorus ideas, skin in the form of verse couplets. Before these songs had a band to perform them, they were Grant's friends, incubating in the closet for no one but him.

Now they're alive and well. TGC released a 3 song ep in the fall of 2011, with a full-length album already in the works. "Burn and Void" will be available this year, containing 12 tracks. The musicians poised to embody them are as committed as they are talented, and The Glass Cavalry can't wait to share them with you.

To quote one of our tracks, "...the fight is on, but we're nowhere near the end."

"I Actually" are a group of friends and self-taught musicians from the farmlands and train yards of Southern Illinois, who base themselves out of St. Louis, MO and were founded in the summer of 2012. The group has played extensively throughout the midwest region, cementing the current four-piece arrangement, amidst lineup changes early on in the bands formation. Its musical styles and themes are uncharacteristically diverse, ranging from indie rock driven anthems about love and loss, to rum soaked punk and metal influenced romp-stomp sessions."I Actually" is as much of a band as it is an idea, one of sincerity of a perspective built from the eyes of social outsiders. Their first EP, Formative Years, was released in December of 2013 and a follow up release is expected sometime in early 2015.
