The Holdup formed in early 2008 when drummer Danny Flores and lead vocalist Mike Garmany recruited local bassist Kyle Christensen. They began writing songs and performing small local venues around town. It wasn't long before a fanbase gathered and the request for an album began to spread. Not having any recorded material the band decided it was time to hit the studio to record theer first EP. Later that Year, the band recruited Clev Stiles as DJ/Band Manager, the chemistry and fit were undeniable and The Holdup was finally complete.
The Holdup released their first EP in the summer of 2008, and instantly sold a thousand copies. The EP was a huge hit and got the attention of the local independent record label, Dub Rock Records. A few weeks later, The Holdup signed exclusively with Dub Rock and began recording their first full length album "Stay Gold". In March 2009 the long awaited album "Stay Gold" was finally released on Dub Rock, and debuted at an impressive number 34 on the Top 100 Reggae Albums on iTunes. The Album's success on iTunes helped launch "Stay Gold" on to the iTunes "What's Hot" List for 6 weeks and even made the top Reggae Albums on CD Baby.com. Since its release "Good Times" the Single off the "Stay Gold" album has seen been on rotation on multiple college radio stations such as KSCU 103.3FM and even landed on the Bay Area's biggest Alternative mainstream Rock Station Live 105.3FM

Earnest was formed in the early summer of 2012 in Monterey, CA. The band is composed of Jack McClelland, Jacob Butorac, Harrison Spencer, and Alex Bezdjian. Earnest has been compared to artists such as Kings of Leon, Foster the People, and Vampire Weekend, but no one has quite been able to put their finger on what proper mixture of indie rock and folk Earnest creates.
