Watch & Listen
"The dapper-disheveled singer-songwriter has kicked around the Eastside scene for a few years but might have a breakout with this residency. His idiosyncratic voice and folkish rock chops put him in a long line of troubadours, but the clarity of his songwriting sets him apart from the pack." - LA TImes
"On his debut LP, Duniven enters the familiar, roomy space defined by the likes of Dylan and Petty. If americana is your comfort food, this could be a tasty dish" - Kevin Bronson (BuzzbandsLA)
"Duniven provides a refreshing sound that seperates them from the black hole of good music thats heard but easily forgotten. With organs, harmonica and rusty-raw vocals, they add variance to the same old same old indie rock scene in LA. Destined to leave a mark on your eardrums" - The Deli Magazine.
"LA rock and Roll troubadour Patrick Duniven plays the kind of rich, Americana style music that is reminiscent of Dylan, Petty and Springsteen. Duniven skillfully avoids repetitive territory though, instead continuing the tradition with his own unique take on the genre" - Mp3.com
"Eastside singer-songwriter boasts at least two things that set him apart in that over populated field: An authentically roots-rusty vioce box and bonafide songwriting skills. His folky pop-rock resides firmly in a roots-americana mold, recalling most obviously the hooky rock and roll of Tom Petty. Better yet is that he serves it all up with a Dylan-esque style of taking folk based forms down more poetically adventurous paths" - LA WEEKLY
The Bixby Knolls
THE BIXBY KNOLLS are a Los Angeles, California collective born in 2009. They have attained an eclectic rock n roll sound that ranges from classic soul, 60's underground legends such as 'Love', punk pioneers 'The Clash', post-punk favorites 'Joy Division' to modern classics such as 'Primal Scream' and 'Kasabian'.
Their soon-to-be-released debut album ‘Near & Undear’ was produced by Joe Cardamone of 'The Icarus Line' and engineered by Greg Gordon who has masterminded the mixing board to such greats as 'Oasis', 'Jet', 'Supergrass' and ‘The Dandy Warhols'.
The Bixby Knolls have successfully completed a residency at premier L.A. venue THE ECHO in May 2011 and shared the stage with BEST COAST at the PASADENA MAKE MUSIC FESTIVAL in summer of 2011. They have also been billed as support to such touring acts as THE VACCINES, SWERVEDRIVER and LITTLE BARRIE (of PRIMAL SCREAM).
Emy Reynolds Band
Emy Reynolds grew up in the small town of Ojai, nestled in the valley just off the coast of Southern California. Her story began in high school, after singing at Carnegie Hall and touring in Germany/Austria with her choir. She was hooked on singing and being on the road. Upon her return, she began writing and almost immediately performing at local venues. Emy became known for her rare low raspy vocal coupled with lyrics of timeless tales. As the winner of Battle of the Bands in Ojai, Emy opened for Brett Dennen and that is where she met, Piper Denney who was in a different band at the time, but soon joined Emy and started performing as a duo. From this event she also met John Adair, President of Emoto Music, a Santa Monica/ Chicago based music licensing company. Emoto had Emy sing on a commercial spot for a nation wide Chevy Traverse commercial. In fall of 2009, Holly Schmidt joined the band, making it a trio of alternative singer-songwriter folk with rich vocal harmonies. Together, they recorded their first EP, Ode to the Stubborn with a friend. With the December 2009 release of the EP, they went on their first West Coast tour reaching Bellingham, WA. In 2010, Emoto had the band perform intimate showcases at advertisement agencies in Chicago, Seattle and San Francisco. In March 2010, as a result of Emy meeting Kasey Truman from Chop Shop Music at a Hotel Café show, her song, Tonight, was featured on Grey’s Anatomy. Emy has been featured in a PSA covering Peter Gabriel’s song, Mercy Street. Most recently, Best Day ever was in a Payless Commercial. Currently, the band is playing in Ojai, Ventura and LA. They have plans to record a full-length album and go on tour again soon.
