Watch & Listen
In an age of surplus music and industry formulas, originality and timelessness have become something reminisced. Already finding a pulse in rock radio with their Billboard top 15 rock single Fighting Gravity, I Anthem aims to trace rock n roll's timeless roots.
"Trying to create genuine, original music, while drawing from the music we grew up with, has always been the intention of I Anthem," frontman, Tyler Edwards said.
Since 2009, the South Carolina based rock band has stayed true to pursuing that vision with the release of EPs "The Things Our Eye's Can't See," (2010) and "Not Afraid Not Alone," (2011). Edwards produces lyrics that wrestle with themes of hope, love, faith and unanswered questions, providing an enduring and humble framework for music that exudes empathy and thought provoking images. I Anthem's sound is further rounded out with the collective help of drummer, Tyler Bodkins; and guitarist, Nick Webb.
Compelled by infectious melodies and potent instrumentation, the transparency and emotion of I Anthem's songs will become ingrained in any listener, as seen in the release of their 2012 single, "Lonely Soul."
"I have always tried to write lyrics that are completely honest, in hopes that they will transcend myself and my personal experiences," Edwards said. "I have always seen music as a gift from God –– it is a way to break barriers and find hope in something greater than ourselves."
Determined to create songs that build community, I Anthem divides their time between touring, writing and recording. The band plans to release their first full-length record "West of Homeland," which features the hit single Fighting Gravity, in early 2014.
A Call For Kylie
Hey everyone, we're A Call for Kylie. Let's have some fun.
I am an artist that will use any creative platform necessary to tell the world that broken lives can be mended beyond belief!
I am a terrible painter with a brush, so I try to paint pictures with words for mental canvasses.
We are a pop punk band from Atlanta, Georgia that started in the Summer of 2011. We take our music very seriously, but we don't take ourselves too seriously. We love meeting new people and new bands and just having fun.
Palm Trees & Power Lines
Florida-based rock band Palm Trees & Power Lines fuses high-energy pop and punk, like the perfectly off-balanced offspring of Fall Out Boy and 5 Seconds of Summer. The band (a.k.a. PTPL) started playing together in 2012 and features Florida natives Josh Cravey (vocals/guitar), Shafer Tasso (vocals/guitar), and Kyle Bailey (bass).
Palm Trees & Power Lines released their first EP, High Hopes, in November 2013. Well received, the band gained local notoriety before fans thrust them into the national spotlight by voting them to play the 2014 Vans Warped Tour show in Orlando. This caught the attention of rock station X102.9, who further promoted the band in a series of on-air interviews, along with Internet radio’s Fearless Radio, Pup Fresh and The Quinn Spin.
Then, in May 2015, PTPL repeated their fan-driven success when High Hopes’ ‘Listen’ was chosen as the Song of the Year for the PGA Tour’s THE PLAYERS Championship, with the music and video serving as the foundation for the tournament’s national advertising campaign. Their second album, Animalistic, was released later that month.
PTPL followed up with more high-profile appearances, opening up for acts like Panic! at the Disco, AWOLNation, and 311. The band was again voted onto the 2015 Vans Warped Tour, this time onto the Jacksonville date. PTPL has been featured on NBC, ABC and CBS affiliates, numerous print media, and even music industry titans Ernie Ball and Blackstar Amplification have talked about the rise of PTPL on their own social media channels.

Now, we as a band are trying to achieve our shared dream, touring and sharing our music all over the world! Impossible? We don’t think so. We do what we love and plan to make careers out of it, because we really don’t know what else we’re going to do… But anyways, we have a lot of fun together as a band, writing songs and playing them and we hope you enjoy it!
We are warrior brothers trying to show people that they can control their own beautiful minds. They can be humans. That they can be set free. Just like the bands that have set us free, we want to continue the mission.
