Taking the listener to an imaginative and mesmerizing musical journey, IAMEVE explores the idea of metamorphosis, taking us from self-destruction to self-love expressed by various experimental sounds to alternative synth-pop. Her upcoming debut full-length album will be released for later in the year, and will conclude the rise of its heroine, Eve Ami.
Described by The Huffington Post as “if Alice took Ziggy Stardust’s hand and followed him down the rabbit hole to a world guided by the twists and turns of Eve’s ethereal and colorful vocals” and Death and Taxes Magazine claimed IAMEVE as “one of those ear-worms that gets stuck in your brain from morning until night.”
Selected in the LA readers poll as “Best Emerging Act of 2012”, IAMEVE has also had songs featured on ABC’s The Lying Game, and has profiled by Huffington Post, Zooey Deschanel’s site “Hello Giggles,” LA Weekly and lovingly spoofed by friend, Fred Armisen, on his TV series Portlandia. She has also shared the stage with Moby, Semi Precious Weapons, Matt Caws of Nada Surf, DJ Spooky, and has numerous TV/film placements.

Only You is the tear jerking voice of Rachel Fannan armored by hip swinging Motown inspired pop rock. Think Bjork sings Roy Orbison, Chrissie Hynde fronting the Ventures. Only You is a shot to the heart from an era far forgotten, a must see live band for anyone missing the energy of the classiest time in rock n roll...
Time and Energy
Two heads are always better than one, right? For Santa Ana, California's Time and Energy, two friends have teamed up to form a dynamic duo, utilizing a smorgasbord of instruments and looping techniques to concoct a unique cocktail of experimental rock. Part live performance and part pre-recorded samples and loops, the pair ofchildhood friends perpetually generate a wall of powerful, yet balanced sounds as they ready their new LP Strange Kind of Focus.
Formed out of the ashes of a 4-piece rock band, Jorge Rios and Brennan Roach picked up where their departed bandmates left off, deciding to assume control of all musical duties in their absence. Vocals, guitar,bass, keys and percussion fall into Rios' capable hands, while his counterpart Roach contributes equal parts drums, percussion, bass,guitar, keys and clarinet. Coupled with their mastery of loops and samples, the duo builds songs into grandiose crescendos, inviting new dimensions and rhythms to the musical party which would otherwise be impossible.
Their debut Entertainica crash landed on the independent music scene three years after forming, featuring a smattering of unique experimental tracks laced with hints of indie, blues, jazz and electronica. The ebb and flow of the record continuously swerves inand out of numerous influences and genres, heightening Time and Energy's affinity for fearless creativity and jam-based songwriting formula.
Now Rios and Roach are preparing to take the next step, having self-recorded their follow-up album "Strange Kind of Focus" at a house in the woods of Santa Cruz County. With one West coast tour already under their belts, they are currently booking live dates throughout.
