Hot on the heels of a move to Los Angeles from their former home of Brooklyn, Harper Blynn continue to turn heads with their soaring brand of rock. Bucking a growing trend in modern live music, the band avoids the use of prerecorded tracks and auto-tuned vocals, instead relying on their instruments and voices to generate their epic soundscapes. After making albums with legendary producers David Kahne (Paul McCartney, The Strokes), Malcolm Burn (Emmylou Harris) and John O’Mahony (Metric, Coldplay), Harper Blynn have been busy working on their forthcoming full-length, as well as cowriting and playing on Sara Bareilles’ new album The Blessed Unrest. TV shows like Revenge, The Vampire Diaries, House of Lies and Pretty Little Liars have all taken note and featured the band’s music in the past year. Rounded out with upcoming tour dates in the fall of 2013 with Bareilles and One Republic, Harper Blynn show no signs of slowing down.
Aan, a fearless experimental pop band from Portland, Oregon, mixes heavily textured guitars with rich vocal harmonies. Active since 2007, they’ve garnered a reputation throughout the Northwest as a progressive force in the independent scene. Aan beckons a bevy of comparisons but their sound cannot be pigeonholed. The vocal dexterity of singer Bud Wilson skillfully reaches the octaves of the late Jeff Buckley while maintaining a gritty timbre. The work will demonstrate a patience and attention to space not found in much of the new cannon of up and coming artists. They are currently working on their highly anticipated debut album, Amor Ad Nauseum.
Los Angeles, CA based American Pyramids write with the type of finesse that only comes with experience. Singer/guitarist Albert Khasky taps into seminal bands such as The Promise Ring, and Death Cab for Cutie, while also balancing the sound with a shred of darkness. Enlisting Grammy nominated producer Billy Mohler to record the debut EP, the band has set itself on the right path to align with its influences.
