"Emotive. Passionate. Intelligent. Hard working. These are terms that just begin to describe Bravo Delta, a four piece modern rock band whose music has been labeled "subjective and emotive yet irrepressibly accessible". Big hooks and radio-ready polish, with “a dark undercurrent of cut-throat exasperation” that can leave a listener singing, dancing, or thinking. In a very short time, the project has matured and evolved from one man’s idea to a full fledged modern rock powerhouse, producing a sound that one media publication calls “a ten out of ten…an A+”.
Bravo Delta self released its debut album “Sunset Wasteland” on February 28th, 2012 and has gained success with both critics and fans alike. Songs such as “Not Enough”, “Loose Cannon”, and “Already Gone” are getting spins on Internet radio, satellite radio, and commercial terrestrial radio, and program directors are taking notice. One said “their sound is reflective of the radio giants played on heavy rotation nationwide”. After spending 2012 touring extensively, Bravo Delta entered the studio in December 2012 to begin recording their follow up album Shutdown Sequence. The band self produced the album and enlisted the talents of Derek Taylor (Shinedown, Skillet, Red Line Chemistry) for mixing and mastering, and definitely features their strongest and most impactful songs to date. The album was released on March 26th, 2013, and currently the band can be seen on tour in many states across the United States.
Energy, entertainment, and rock are the elements that define one of the region's most eclectic acts...Nothing More. Having segments that mirror "Blue Man Group" and "Stomp", a catalogue of songs that overflow with passion, and a show that anyone can enjoy, Nothing More breaks the barriers that define a typical "Rock Band". They have formed a unique fusion of progressive rock and eclectic stage entertainment, which makes them stand out in the crowd of mainstream, cookie-cutter entertainment. In 2007 they were selected out of 15,000 bands to be featured on Fox's "The Next Great American Band", as well as being chosen out of 13,000 bands to take home the grand prize of the Warped Tour/Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands.
Touring extensively for years throughout Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Oklahoma has sparked a buzz that extends beyond the South and Southwest. Being one of the regions strongest acts, Nothing More has been given the opportunity to share the stage with some of the hottest national artists that move through the region, including 30 Seconds to Mars, Hinder, The Used, Coheed and Cambria, Yellowcard, and more. The energy, dedication and sincerity of Nothing More promises a long and successful future. Take it from Frank Pain, Program Director of Rock108, "You DO NOT want to miss this!!"
Tulsa based Hip-Hop/R & B/Punk/Whatever we feel like fusing.
What started as two guys who met through their local music scene, quickly turned into many alcohol hazed late night jam sessions between Wil Sutherland and Chris Gazaway, and then inevitably it became what is now known as, O.T.S.B.
After several leaps and bounds, and lineup changes, Sutherland and Gazaway found friends/musicians who could complete their vision. Chris Cramberg & Adam Lair provide a nice rhythm section, on drums & bass, respectively, while MIT graduate, Mark Hertensteiner, holds everything together on keyboards, and engineering. The band was rolling forward after finally securing a lineup, and even managed to record their first single, "Just Got Real", but then...that all came to a screeching halt due to lead vocalist/songwriter, Chris Gazaway's, involvement on season 12 of FOX's hit show, American Idol. However, after 5 months of rigorous auditions, and making it to Hollywood, Gazaway was finally cut during the first round of Hollywood Week, when he was voted out 3-to-1, by Idol judges, and Executive Producer, Nigel Lythgoe(Nicki Minaj & Keith Urban still gave him a yes).
Now with the freedom to move forward, O.T.S.B., in it's entirety, is gearing up to complete their debut EP, and have it released in the Summer of 2013.
One might ask, "What are these guys all about?" The best answer for that can be found in their music, and their onstage performances. One thing is definitely apparent though, and that is, that they're...
