My Name is Drew
My Name is Drew. We are individuals, we have are own views, musical interests, opinions, and lives. As different as we all are in our musical tastes and styles, we find a way to come together to make a sound that we feel is right. If the music makes us feel something, and makes the audience feel something-then we are in the right place. Founded on strong friendships and the desire to create music that is fun to perform and speaks to us in its own way, MNiD has made it through the highs and lows; it is simply just the start. Their sound is reminiscent of early Fall Out Boy, Relient K and Foo Fighters while meeting with a Muse, Anberlin, and RHCP rhythm section. To say our taste and sound is eclectic would be accurate.
We are a family. Brothers. Musicians. We are a belief-that somehow, something big will come out of this tiny state and make a name, not just for themselves, but for the fans who believe in having a good time at shows, jumping when no one else will, screaming at the top of their lungs just because they feel like it. We are My Name is Drew
Jonas Sees In Color
Great music isn't about perfection and cleanliness, it's about emotion and desire; that's what makes a great record. Using this mindset, Jonas Sees in Color (Greensboro, NC) headed into the studio to record their sophomore album, GIVE ME MINE. Recorded on 2-inch reel-to-reel tape, the band pushed themselves to their limits for that one great take. GIVE ME MINE is a collection of honest, dirty, pretty and weird stories, "just the way we like it" says singer Ryan Downing. Highlights include the album's lead single "Give Me Mine" (hitting digital retailers on April 6th), the rowdy rocker "Dirty Little Sunshine" and the haunting "Harvest" saga. "We stretched our brains and emptied our hearts to write these songs and you can feel that in the music" adds Downing.
Their relentless touring schedule over the past six years have started paying off too. In January of 2013, the band was flown out to Los Angeles to participate in Ernie Ball's annual Battle of the Bands competition. The band has also landed a stint on this year's installment of the Vans Warped Tour.
Music isn't the band's only passion though; the band has been known to bend over backwards for their fans. Whether it be making masks to give out before a show, mailing out free stickers or inviting fans to be in their music videos, JONAS SEES IN COLOR prides themselves in the relationship they share with their fans.
The name JONAS SEES IN COLOR comes from acclaimed novel, The Giver by Lois Lowry. The book tells the story of a boy named Jonas who lives in an emotionless, colorless utopian society. In this black-and-white world, Jonas is chosen to endure the burden of the dreams, hopes, and thoughts of his entire village. As he connects with these memories, he begins to see color for the very first time. Downing adds "Our hope is that the listener will unite with the song and see the colors inside it, keeping the song as a memory of their own."
Nobody Yet is one of the hardest working touring acts out. From Philadelphia, PA, the band has captivated audiences throughout the east coast with their not only original mix of progressive pop punk, but their exciting and exhilarating live show. They don't stand still because they can't stand still. And if you see them, you won't stand still either.
