Watch & Listen
Cherub is a sexy electro-‐pop duo that is the dance love-‐child of 80's funk and pop-‐ music from the future. The members of Cherub, Jordan Kelley and Jason Huber, share a love for honest original music and vibrant live performance, with a common goal to share a little bit of sex, a little bit of drugs, and a whole lot of love with people across the globe.
Cherub's music is a fresh electrified take on risqué pop music that brings to mind timeless artists such as Prince or Zapp and Roger, and more contemporary artists like Pharrell and The Dream. With a live show that is bouncing with energy, Cherub dances their way into the hearts of audiences from the first falsetto hook, until the very last delay filters out.
2013 saw the release of "100 Bottles" EP with the leadoff infectious smash "Jazzercise '95." In addition to a direct support slot on spring 2013's Age of Reason Tour with Gramatik, the band will be making stops at such festivals as Lollapalooza, Governor's Ball, Austin City Limits, Wakarusa, as well as stops in the UK & Europe.
Named one of Paste Magazine's "12 Tennessee Bands you Should Listen to Now," Cherub had a massive 2012, with appearances at such major festivals as Bonnaroo, SXSW, Electric Forest, Hangout Fest, Snowball Music Fest, and with STS9 at Red Rocks Amphitheater.
After receiving a warm response worldwide to the digital release of the band's first record, Man of the Hour, and touring throughout the US and Mexico, Cherub released their follow up MoM & DaD in February 2012. The album includes the smash viral hit "Doses and Mimosas," which in August 2012 hit #1 on Hype Machine's most talked about songs chart.
The latest batch of Cherub songs brings a fresh, uptempo electro feel to the familiar pop sensibilities showcased on their first record. Jordan Kelley's studio production, clever songcraft, and silky smooth falsetto are complimented perfectly by Jason Huber's live production and tube-‐driven guitar work. Cherub's versatility in songwriting and dance music production blurs conventional genre barriers. Ranging from grooving heartfelt ballads to risqué club bangers, Cherub takes the throwback vibes of old drum machines and washed out keyboards and marries them with timeless writing and a very modern approach to music production and performance. Playful guitar licks and lush synthesizer textures dance around in the mix, as listeners are treated to sing-‐a-‐long hook after hook the entire way through the tunes.
Mansions on the Moon
Mansions On The Moon boast a remarkable resume, having collaborated with N*E*R*D, produced for Mac Miller and toured with Wiz Khalifa and Cherub. Their releases have included a DIPLO and Benzi presented mixtape titled ‘Paradise Falls,' the ‘Lightyears’ EP which was Ex. Produced by Pharrell, and ‘Full Moon’ EP featuring Zee Avi and Paper Diamond. Last October saw the release of their first full length album. The record, which strikes a delicate balance between pop-sensibility and tasteful musicianship, offers listeners a first-hand portrayal of the ups and downs encountered on a path to chasing the dream.
"The name, "Mansions On The Moon," comes from the concept of turning a dream into reality, which for us, means making the best music we can possibly create. After countless studio sessions, nights of crashing on friends' couches, and bus rides to mixing sessions - our Mansion On The Moon is here."
One small step for Mansions on the Moon has yielded giant leaps for independent artists. In the two years the Los Angeles band has been kicking around the scene, they’ve been produced by Diplo and Pharrell Williams, managed by members of N*E*R*D, toured with Wiz Khalifa and had their eclectic style of ambient electronic pop that incorporates vocal harmonies, acoustic instrumentation and licks of hip-hop called “the future of music” by a number of tastemakers.

Poseidon & Cody Newkirk
Poseidon and Cody Newkirk both have a love for Sublime, hip-hop, reggae and catchy choruses. The two met in high school and jammed at parties. After some good response from partygoers the two decided to take to the studio and are working on their first studio album which comes out in December. Poseidon's hip-hop style alongside Cody Newkirk's controlled voice make for a very melodic and entertaining set. Acoustic riffs and simple drum tracks are the bread-and-butter of this group.
