The Peach Kings
The Peach Kings consist of Texas-born Paige McClain Wood and Silver Lake, Los Angeles native Steven Trezevant Dies. The band currently resides and works in Los Angeles.
Stripped down, The Peach Kings' sound rests on the dynamic between Paige's classically trained, yet purposefully unorthodox vocals and Steven's tendency toward riff based guitar. What you end up with is a mixture somewhere between Portishead and Led Zeppelin, The Kills and Nancy Sinatra, The Cramps and Roy Orbison. While certain blues and doo-wop influences are obvious and undeniable, The Peach Kings arrive at a sound that is wholly their own; music that is modern, yet timeless.
The band was originally created by Mr. Wall and Cal Jones in April of 2012 under the name Kid Klimactic & The Night Owls with Phil Magick on bass and multiple drummers to fill in which lead to their friend Alex taking up the roll and recording on the Dream sick EP. Alex eventually quit the band to pursue his education and Phil was involved in an accident at his workplace which left him with a severally damaged arm. The mixture of these two events led the band on hiatus and during this time was when they decided to change the name to Django’s Tiger.
On June 23rd 2012, Cal was displaying his artwork at the Moon Block Festival in Pomona, CA where he was approached by fellow artists Julian Keith and Ozzie Juarez who were also displaying artwork. They engaged in conversation which led to Cal giving Julian and Ozzie the Dream Sick EP to listen to along with his phone number. The next morning Julian contacted Cal and the two began discussing topics that revolved around the band which led to the agreement of Cal and Mr. wall visiting Julian’s painting studio in Downtown Los Angeles where Julian was asked to join Django’s Tiger. After one jam session Django’s Tiger played their first show at The Airliner where they met Photographer / Videographer Carlos Garcia and after three shows as a three piece, Julian sent out a post on his Facebook page stating that Django’s Tiger was looking for a bass player and Boo Radley (who they had met previously) responded. They met up and jammed at Cal’s house where Boo was also asked to join.
They played their first show as a four piece at The ADC warehouse in Downtown Los Angeles. Since then they have changed their name to Wax Children, added Torvald Helmer on Keyboards and got rid of Boo Radley.
Zach and Bridget
Zach and Bridget...
...are an independent alt-county/americana duet comprised of songwriter/producer Zachary Galanis and musical theater actress/vocalist Bridget Schack. The two met while singing in a gospel choir and orchestra at a college in Los Angeles. Their music has been characterized as narrative and melodically-haunting.
Galanis as a songwriter wants you to hear the story, but even more so, he would prefer you watch the movie. His songs lend themselves to a meandering and cinematic feel over an atmospheric orchestration of dusty guitars and the “churchy” drone of a harmonium. If Galanis is rooted in an understated voice and quiet storytelling, Schack wants you to know exactly what she is saying with a voice made for the stage. You can hear inklings toward the California country tunes of 70’s early 80’s.
Early collaboration between Galanis and Schack began with lo-fi home recordings of songs by Galanis. Having asked Schack to add some background vocals to his solo project, Galanis quickly realized a unique chemistry between the two. The charm of these recordings was met with some positive critical feedback and the two began collaborating with other musicians in Los Angeles under the band name GALANIS.
After an amicable fallout with the band, Galanis and Schack continued performing as a duet, taking on more of an alt-country sound and Schack’s role as a front woman became more apparent in the live performance. The two embarked on a home concert tour across the pacific coast and mountain west. In 2011, Galanis and Schack funded a second studio album solely through the help of a loyal fan base. In 2012, a live recording by Galanis and Schack was picked up for a TV placement on ABC and helped galvanize the focus toward Zach + Bridget.
Zach + Bridget have shared the stage and collaborated with such acts as Tift Merritt, Robert DeLong, Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s, Fictionist, as well as toured all over the country doing home concerts. They are currently working on the debut album of Zach + Bridget followed by a US and European Tour.
Reminiscent of a wide spectrum of sounds from the 70's singer- songwriter era folk-rock to the grungy, shoe-gazing of the 90's , Emily Gold blends elements of guitar-driven rock with dark electronic musings for a moving sound that transcends both her classic and contemporary influences. Emily's performance, led by her dynamic vocal melodies, stirring vibrato and warm resonance, is a refreshing revival of the female singer-songwriter approach that is best described as enchanting.
Emily released her debut EP, Wrap You Up In Dreams, earlier this year for which she received kind words from Buzzbands LA claiming that "it won't take long for Gold to make a name for herself".
Emily is currently hard at work in Los Angeles recording her debut full length album.
