From a hospital ward to four sold out tours, from Youtube videos recorded in a kitchen to recording an album in LA with a Grammy Award winning producer... Lawson's is a tale of triumph over adversity. The London-based four-piece only released their first single in 2012 but already they've had three Top Five hits and a Top Ten debut album, 'Chapman Square' .
Pop! Fiction is a pop American band comprised of Justin Tyler, Tyler Nichols, Alex SkyWalker and Will McCoy. The band was founded in Orange County in 2011, where they wrote, recorded and released a five song EP, "Next Level". The EP was produced by Kyle Black at Mike Green's Treehouse Studios.
Pop! Fiction's second release, a Self-Titled EP released in 2012, featured production and writing credits from Linus Of Hollywood, Jaret Reddick (Bowling For Soup), and Ben Romans. Pop! Fiction went on tour to promote the album supporting Island/Def Jam’s artist Burnham. The group also has had the opportunity to share the stage with great acts such as MKTO, Aaron Carter, Forever The Sickest Kids, Tiffany Thornton, Trevor Jackson, Ryan Beatty, Asher Monroe, Family Force 5, Hollywood Ending, Megan Nicole & Lawson and more.
