Last American Buffalo
Los Angeles based Rock'n"Roll group Last American Buffalo was originally founded by lead singer Kevin Compton. In 2011 he joined with multi-instrumentalist Josh Grolemund and Bassist Vic Artur. Together with Grammy nominated producer Billy Mohler they released several EP's and singles. In the fall of 2012 they released "Here She Comes" their most Rock'n'Roll inspired effort to date, and their first self produced work.
Around that same time Kevin began collaborating with singer/guitarist Bryce Wayt of the GT350's, who then officially joined the band as an additional songwriter and frontman, a la Joe Walsh. Drawing inspiration from Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker to Tom Petty, Neil Young, Led Zeppelin (and a little AC/DC for good measure), they took to the studio to write and record their first full length Album, scheduled to be released in July 2013.
"Sometimes we forget where we came from, and in an era of manufactured music, Last American Buffalo reminds us that it's the bluesy chords, the groovy beats, and the rebel poetry that are the ingredients to organic rock & roll."

The Vim Dicta
Kevin Bronson has this to say about LA's The Vim Dicta. “There may be no rock ’n’ roll configuration more exhausted creatively than the power trio. Belters and shredders come and go, substituting bombast for vitality and technical showmanship for true musical dialogue. Which brings me to young L.A. trio the Vim Dicta, who have succumbed to none of the perils of cliché.”- See more below and at: http://buzzbands.la/#sthash.A6GKuUfx.dpuf.
Trevor Menear is a guitarist and singer-songwriter based in Chicago. His music encompasses the genres of rock, jazz and blues. His guitar playing has been compared to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Duane Allman, who are amongst his list of influences that also include Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, Frank Zappa, the Beatles and Nirvana. Menear's debut album, Introducing Trevor Menear, also featuring the Trevor Menear band, was released digitally on July 15, 2008 and will be released on CD August 1, 2008.
Trevor Menear is the son of radio personality, Kevin Matthews. He was born in Grand Rapids, MI and moved to Chicago with his family at a young age. Trevor began playing guitar at age 10 and then played the House of Blues in Chicago at 13.
Menear was offered three musical scholarships and chose to attend the University of Tennessee, where he studied for one semester before returning to Chicago to become more involved with his music and the Chicago music scene. In addition to writing and playing music, Menear has experimented with producing his own tracks. His cover of "John Sinclair" was recorded with an antique Meissner 9-1065 78 rpm record lathe, which records directly onto a vinyl record.
Trevor made his first television appearance on September 28, 2007 on ABC 7 where he was interviewed about his track contribution to Instant Karma. Menear also participated in the 2008 SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas.
C O L O R
C O L O R is the musical project of Los Angeles native Nelson London.
Growing up playing in a variety of local bands, London drew from his experience performing live in the downtown warehouse scene. The resulting sound of C O L O R is composed of wide spectrum of digital production, vintage synths and virtual instruments, seamlessly interwoven with live performance. London's goal is to push the boundaries of sonic experimentation while maintaining a cohesive focus on melody + musicality. The debut EP from C O L O R will be released in Fall 2012.
