Kiven, Hand of The Hills (feat. Erin Tate of Minus The Bear), Son of Stan

Kiven is modern rock band currently based out of Los Angeles, CA. The band consists of members Tyler Demorest (Guitar, Keys, and Vocals), Matt Cohen (Bass), Danny Schnair (Guitar), and Jake Reed (Drums).

In February 2014, Kiven released their debut self-titled album ‘Kiven’, which features production by Tony Hajjar of At The Drive-In/Sparta and includes the single “In The Fire,” which went Number 1 on KROQ Locals Only and sat in the Top 5 for nine straight weeks. Soon after the debut release, Kiven made their second appearance at SXSW this past year, followed by a KROQ Presents Los Angeles Residency, and rounded out 2014 with two more tours across the NorthWest. Between “In The Fire” and the follow up single “I Can Take It,” Kiven maintained a Top 15 spot on the FMQB Submodern Album Radio Charts and received airplay on 200+ stations nationally. There are big plans already set for 2015.

“It’s heavy when it needs to be, delicate and atmospheric when it should be, very catchy without being mundane, and extremely diverse without feeling disjointed in the slightest. It’s just good, really good.” - Riley Breckenridge, Thrice

“The band seamlessly melds driving percussion and the occasional screaming vocal with complex jazz-indebted guitar lines for a product that’s uniquely Kiven.” - BMI

“A remarkable marriage of furious prog-metal and grooves so precise you could dress them in Armani.” - Entertainment Weekly

Son of Stan

Son of Stan is the solo project and band of songwriter Jordan Richardson (Drummer for Ben Harper, Ringo Starr). The creative debut album is set for release in 2013 and was produced by Adam Lasus (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) and shocases a unique, psychedelic style that Richardson calls "Divorce Pop".

The sound of his forthcoming album, due for release in 2013, though hard to pinpoint, range in influence from the darker side of 80's pop such as Joe Jackson, Phil Collins, R. Stevie Moore, (and even Hall and Oates) to more, even heavier, stonier psychedelic nods.

Richardson told Dallas based blog Central Track: "It's a little difficult to describe the sound of it, but there is a definite aesthetic goal in mind with the record. There are a lot of songs from my childhood in the mid 80's that when I hear now they give me a totally unsettling feeling (songs I refer to as "divorce pop", though my parents remain happily married) and remind me of the pains of being dragged around by my mom on hot Saturday afternoons in 1989, to a weird strip mall women's clothing store called 'Show Off Fashion'. I want to make songs that convey that feeling and mood. "North Texas Unsettling Childhood Memory Pop". or maybe "Divorce Pop". The song "Corsica" is definitely about that, I think. Both sonically and in subject matter... I dunno. Its weird and you can dance to it, but I hope it makes you feel a little funny.
