Busy Living, SWIIIM, TS and The Past Haunts, Blake

Busy Living

Los Angeles rock/pop outfit Busy Living was formed in early 2012 after frontman Mike Moonves left his former band, Chief (Domino). Writing songs of love and heartbreak, Busy Living heavy lyrics are complemented by their upbeat melodies. Rounded out by Jared Sohnen's pounding drums, Tim Hutton's strong bass, Matt Leddy's hooky and atmospheric keys and Drew Phillips' melodic guitar playing, Busy Living brings an energy packed live show that is truly an experience. Busy Living released the "It's a War Out There!" EP in the summer of 2012 and plan to release their second EP in late 2014.

TS and The Past Haunts

Formed out of the demise of Boston indie/punk rock royalty, TS & The Past Haunts came to be through mutual friends sharing common interests. Travis Shettel (TS/Totally Travis), guitarist, singer and ring-leader of the band Piebald, met The Duke Spirit (Shangri-La Records) when he was invited to take on tour manager duties for the band during one of their first US tours. Acting as a US Ambassador-of-sorts for the band, a friendship was formed and The Duke Spirit soon learned of Travis' musical past. After asking TS to join them both on the road and in the studio playing keys and percussion, it would only be a matter of time before they would return the favor. Travis and The Duke Spirit knuckled down in between their tours of Australia and the UK and recorded a handful of his songs; learning, writing and recording along the way.

Since the Dukes have their own schedules full with... well, The Duke Spirit, Travis wanted an outlet to perform the songs live. The recordings with The Dukes were a catalyst for the formation of a true band. He found his rhythm section in Ben (drums) and Heather (bass) Heywood, a married duo who front bands of their own (Summer Darling and Kissing Cousins, respectively). The power trio version of TS & THE PAST HAUNTS has been busy; playing shows and writing songs. In the very near future, they will be heading north to Sacramento to record a full length album with Robert Cheek at the tape-op darling studio, The Hangar. They plan to record live to capture the energy and rawness of their live performances. The new batch of songs are energized blasts of dark rock that still maintain pop sensibilities


Blake Perlman is the beautifully emotive, singing/songwriting daughter of actor Ron Perlman. Raised in an artistically prominent home, Blake has been pursuing acting and singing since childhood. Her metaphoric lyrics and idiosyncratic vocal style are greatly inspired by powerful female sopranos and such as Janis Joplin and Tori Amos. Gravitating on her first EP towards the narcotic sounds of downtempo and trip hop music in the vein of Portishead and Massive Attack, Blake’s inviting yet keening voice lends itself to a wide range of electronic and hip-hop fusions.
To date, Blake has released a video for her first single 'Chameleon' off of her first EP, Out of Lines, which is slated to be self-released in early 2014. Her upcoming single 'Loser' was recently featured on the Sons of Anarchy. Furthermore, 'Drift', a track in which she collaborated with RZA of the Wu Tang Clan, was released on the official soundtrack of the internationally publicized film, Pacific Rim.
