Cary Brothers is an indie rock American singer-songwriter from Nashville, Tennessee. Brothers is best known for the single "Blue Eyes", which was featured on the soundtrack to the 2004 film Garden State.
With his songs influenced by everything from 1980s British New Wave music to 1970s folk music, Brothers has achieved critical and commercial success with his independent releases All the Rage and Waiting for Your Letter, both of which reached the top of the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts. "Blue Eyes" has been downloaded over 100,000 times and broke the Top Twenty on the iTunes singles chart. On the web, Brothers has also found success on MySpace, where he has over 7 million plays on his music page and built a solid base by communicating with fans.
While many artists focus their efforts mostly on radio exposure, Brothers went a slightly different route and pushed to get songs out to the public through film and television shows, leading a generation of similar-minded indie artists in the Los Angeles. Brothers' songs have appeared on the NBC sitcom Scrubs," the FOX mystery Bones," the WB's Smallville," ABC Family's show Kyle XY, "One Tree Hill," and the medical dramas Grey's Anatomy and ER." The original version of Brothers' song "Ride" appeared on the soundtrack to the feature film The Last Kiss, starring Zach Braff, Rachel Bilson, and Casey Affleck. Brothers has also performed on "The Late Late Show," "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," Direct TV's "CD USA,"and Scrubs. In 2005, he made a guest appearance with London band Aqualung on "The Late Show with David Letterman" and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."
Brothers found his musical voice playing regularly as part of the musical community at the Hotel Café in Los Angeles, and he has since toured across America and Canada with such acts as Liz Phair, KT Tunstall, Aqualung, Ben Lee, Matt Nathanson, Imogen Heap, and The Fray. He was introduced to UK audiences in 2006 by Tom McRae on the Hotel Cafe Tour, having initiated the Tour himself in the States a few years earlier.
Brothers released his first full-length album, Who You Are, on May 29, 2007. The video for the single "Ride" starring Brittany Snow is one of the few independent videos ever to be added to the rotation on VH1 in the U.S. In addition, the record won "Best Rock Album of 2007" by the Indie Acoustic Project. Brother's track 'Ride' has also been mixed by Tiesto and was a huge hit on the dancefloors of Europe in 2008.
The Space Race
High-energy, fuzzed out indie rock trio
Hall Of Fame
HALL OF FAME was formed by vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter, Scott Watson. Hall of Fame is based in the small village of Los Angeles, California. The band is comprised of Scott Watson (vocals and guitar), Tristan Page (guitar), Tiffin Roley (guitar), Chris Wadhams (bass), and Sal Romano (drums).
Caitlin is a loyal Californian, and Californians are always willing to honor a dare. In 2005, her husband Johnny from the beloved band Far dared her to write songs to match the beauty of her voice. The songs she wrote were good enough to be recorded by her friend Robert Cheek at the Hangar studio in Sacramento, with Johnny and Rusty Miller (Jackpot, Jason Lytle, Kelly Stoltz) filling out what would become the band Two Sheds. That album, Strange Ammunition, was self released 2006. They followed with an EP, released by Filter Records in 2007, and spent the next few years touring.
In 2010, Caitlin took a hiatus from Two Sheds to join Release the Sunbird, the solo project of Rogue Wave frontman Zach Rogue, and had the opportunity to share stages with Peter, Bjorn & John, Death Cab for Cutie, and the Flaming Lips.
Two Sheds resumed when Caitlin and Johnny moved to Los Angeles in 2012. Caitlin was duty-bound to respond to another dare, this time a challenge from a friend to write twenty songs in one day. Caitlin took that dare three different days, in fact, and ended up with enough solid songs to record a new album with Johnny and drummer Josh Barnhart (Release the Sunbird, Port O’Brien, Sparrows Gate). The resulting album, Assembling, was engineered by Eli Thomson (Delta Spirit, Richard Swift, Everest) at New Monkey Studio in Van Nuys, CA (Elliott Smith’s former studio). Tracking was performed mostly live over a 5-day session to capture the songs with the same immediacy with which they were written.
Two Sheds’ music takes the tender and direct pop mindset of someone like Liz Phair straight to the top floor. Caitlin’s voice may remind listeners of Kristen Hersh or Mazzy Star, sounding like she’s weeping in the sad songs and smiling in the happy songs. The band takes the California rock-soul of comrades like Mother Hips or 90s indie wizards Pavement, driving to the essence of a song in the shortest path possible. They are pushing themselves to dig down to the still-genuine heart of rock and roll, where true love still resides, away from the false promises of the searchlights. They will dare you to not be enamored.
