Smile Empty Soul
Smile Empty Soul was a heavy alternative trio formed while its three members were still in Santa Clarita, CA, high schools. Led by singer/guitarist Sean Danielson, the band also included drummer Derek Gledhill and bassist Ryan Martin. After honing their sound with numerous hometown gigs, Smile Empty Soul began venturing to the Sunset Strip, and eventually passed a demo to Todd Parker of the Los Angeles indie ThroBack. That exposure led to a deal with Jason Flom's Lava imprint, which was expanding in the wake of early signee Kid Rock's white-hot success. The trio hooked up with producer John Lewis Parker, who was at the helm for their self-titled debut, issued by Lava in May 2003. With its screeching guitars and Danielson's rage-filled vocals, the album was indebted to the alternative sounds of the early '90s.
Boy Hits Car
Made up of CRegg Rondell (Vocals & Acoustic 12 String Guitar), Mike (Guitar), Bill Gower (Bass), and Drummer Johnny Ransom, former Wind-UP Records recording artists BOY HITS CAR are known for playing the sickest, loveliest, ugliest, prettiest, most beautiful, melodic, heartfelt music that the band dubs "LoveCore". Their self-titled debut album was released in 2001 and included the hit single "I'm a Cloud."
These Los Angeles natives have toured with System of a Down, Incubus, Papa Roach, and Flyleaf to name a few, and were featured on the 2001 SnoCore Tour, as well as a few dates on the '06 SnoCore tour w/Seether and Shinedown. Haven gained a reputation of having one of the most powerful and captivating live shows, the boys have also made their way through Europe on their own headlining tours and played main stage slots at European festivals such as Reading and Leeds in England and Germany's Rock Am Rink and Rock Im Park, to name a few.
Their new album "The Passage", (self-financed/co. produced), features the single 'Escape the World', which was added to Atlanta's most cutting edge modern rock radio station, 105.3 'The Buzz', and without the help of any record company, managed to climb to #2 as the most requested song!!! When you hear track 3 off "The Passage", (officially released stateside in summer of 2006 through Rock Ridge Music), you'll see why...
