On Tracy Lane
On Tracy Lane is arguably the biggest unsigned rock pop band on the globe. With over 3 million plays, over 225,000 online fans, opening slots for many national artists, overseas trip to play for the US troops, press everywhere, sales of tens of thousands of CDs entirely on their own, pro music videos (1 with actress Lacey Chabert), several EPs and a couple full-lengths, etc. etc. OTL is ready to explode. They are once again changing the world of pop-rock music. After solidifying a new lineup & adding new representation, OTL is releasing their new single, Let’s Meet Again, recorded by platinum-selling producer Noel Golden. With catchy melodies & driving guitars, On Tracy Lane is bigger and better than ever and ready to take the world by storm.
StillLine is a mix of the familiar and the progressive, a homegrown Midwestern rock band whose nevertheless unique sound is finding its way to new fans every day. StillLine cut their teeth in small-town bars and reached rock maturity playing some of St. Louis' better known venues. Big gig or small, StillLine rocks 'em all – from Emden's Bulldog to the main stage at the Voodoo Lounge. What sets StillLine apart is their versatility – be it growling, get-your-hands-dirty riffs, pensive, quieter melodies, or the bread-and-butter rock we all know and love, there's something for everyone.
StillLine is Brian Clover on vox, Michael Fey on guitar, Taylor Patterson on drums, Jim Miller on bass, and Alex Moran on lead guitar. Clover's vox are an amalgam of Eds, as his style is most often likened to Ed Roland of Collective Soul and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder – a large part of the reason this group's sound draws frequent comparisons with these two legendary rock bands. Patterson sits at the heart of the band, rolling thunder with a force comparable with 30 Seconds to Mars.
Miller lays down bass lines which are perhaps most influenced by Alice in Chains, while Fey and Moran form a guitar tandem whose sound is perhaps at the core of the band's ability to strike a balance between recognizable and original, striking a multi-faceted tone that ranges from Pink Floyd to Tool.
Divine Sorrow is a progressive hard rock band from St. Louis, Missouri. Founding member Bryan Chappell (lead vocals and bass) finalized the group with the addition of Mike Sikorski (guitar), Lee Skyles (drums) and Paul Schaffrin (lead guitars)
Divine Sorrow is a complex mixture of heavy atmospheric rock and analytically driven lyrics with strong melodic tendencies. The bands tenured musicianship provides a strong live performance.
Chappell's dark, melodic writing style is an open journey through the cloud of organized religion taht was forged in his childhood. The expression of these feelings of hypocrisy and ambivalence are apparent in the powerful lyrics. The yearning to create music that is melodic and heavy collides with the dark feelings of beauty and tragedy and has taken its first breaths.
Divine Sorrow began its live performances in July of 2011 to well received audiences in St. Louis, Mo. and the music continues to captivate crowds and grow it's fan base with every show.
"Tales of Descension" is the debut full-length CD from Divine Sorrow, it was released on Friday, May 18th, 2012. It is an exciting and complex journey that needs to be heard by anyone who enjoys music.
Walter Vaughn from St. Louis BiState Music Scene had this to say about the release: "These four musicians play as one that in the end compliment each others individual talent. Every song on this CD is solid and stands on it's own. My favorite, "Everything" is "everything" you want in a # 1 hit song. It's impossible to listen to this song without singing along at some point."
"Do not be fooled by the name. Chicago's Molehill is more like a mountain constructed with big guitars, melodic keyboards, and pounding drums. Combining elements of progressive rock with pop sensibilities along with expansive and emotionally charged lyrics, this band delivers a symphonic listening experience.
