DISHWALLA. A platinum selling, award winning band with a career spanning nearly 2 decades and 5 albums.
In 1994 Dishwalla signed to A&M Records and immediately began their successful launch into the music scene with a rendition of It’s Going to Take Some Time that was chosen as a single for The Carpenters tribute album, If I Were a Carpenter, a live performance on the Jon Stewart Show, and MTV coverage.
When A&M released Dishwalla’s debut album, Pet Your Friends, it lit up the airwaves in 1996 with their edgy smash-hit single Counting Blue Cars. With a gritty attitude and edgy musicianship reminiscent of past musical legends, Dishwalla’s Alt-Rock sound was enough for music fans to crown Counting Blue Cars one of the most requested songs of that year. The track earned them a Billboard Award for “Best Rock Song” for 1996 as well as two ASCAP Awards for “Rock Track of the Year” in both 1996 and 1997, driving Pet Your Friends to sell more than a million copies worldwide.
Standing amongst Rock royalty, the band shared the stage with the likes of No Doubt, Sheryl Crow, Cheap Trick, Blind Melon, Lenny Kravitz, Gin Blossoms, and the Goo Goo Dolls, including a signature performance at the infamous Woodstock in 1998. Later that year, the band released its follow-up album, And You Think You Know What Life’s About, and recorded a fresh version of Policy of Truth for Depeche Mode’s tribute disc, For the Masses. Their edgy, yet melodic, signature sound became part of the soundtracks of a generation being featured in hit movies such as Empire Records, Blast from the Past, The Avengers, and in 1999, Stir of Echoes and American Pie. With heavy touring and new releases, the band charted on Billboard with the release of Opaline (2002), the acclaimed live album, Live… Greetings From The Flow State (2003), and their self-titled Dishwalla in 2005. Their songs continue to be included in movies like The Banger Sisters and in TV shows such as Smallville, The OC, and NCIS, Charmed (spotlighted as musical guests) and most recently in 2012, Dishwalla was written into the plot of How I Met Your Mother on CBS.
Over the span of their 2 decade-long career, the band has survived the usual drama of personnel and record label changes. Dishwalla’s music helped define the sound of a generation. Their music is timeless, and Counting Blue Cars‘ recurrent airplay on Triple A and Hot A.C. radio are a testament to this. Touted by fans and industry alike as one of the best live bands to come out of the 90′s, Dishwalla is back, and now they have a story to tell.
Oceanroyal is a San Francisco-based alternative rock band formed in 2006 by lead singer Kurt Seefeld and guitarist Brian London. Shortly after in 2008, Chris Garber (drums) and David Chen (bass) joined the group and the quartet entered the studio to record their self-produced debut album — Sympathetic Vibration.
Oceanroyal returns in 2011 with the first installment of their second full-length album titled, Lucky Drive. The five songs released — known as Side A — were co-produced, engineered, and mixed by Bay Area rock-guru Sean Beresford (Third Eye Blind, Vanessa Carlton) and recorded at a private studio in San Francisco’s picturesque Pacific Heights neighborhood. Standout tracks “Flower Bones” and “Switch” reveal that the band has finally found their identity in modern independent rock music — with a signature glass half-full attitude. Finding comfort in their new skin, the band heads back into the studio this summer to begin recording Side B.
