Lukas Frank is a singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and producer who started touring professionally at 18, playing as a drummer for hire with artists like Portugal. The Man, Alexandra Savior, Phoebe Bridgers, HANDS, Black English, Kitten, DECORATOR, and many other Los Angeles based artists. After several years of touring, he decided to quit playing as a hired gun and pursue his own project full time, this time at the front of the stage. Already, his music has been selected to be prominently featured in an upcoming Netflix original series, "Godless", with music supervision by T Bone Burnett. Frank has spent the last four years honing an EP that’s been kept entirely behind closed doors, an EP that features many of the musicians he met touring the country. The result is a veritable supergroup of musicians and songwriters, all contributing to a project that has taken its time to develop and become a fully realized, impactful musical statement.
Harrison Whitford is a solo artist and an accomplished guitarist, having worked in the studio and on the stage with artists ranging from Willie Nelson, Phoebe Bridgers, Ryan Adams, Jonny Lang, Conor Oberst, Korey Dane, Joe Bonamassa and many more. His own music features personal lyrics and touches on the more emotional side of the singer/songwriter genre. His debut solo record, Afraid of Everything is to be released Winter 2017.
Water Slice is the brainchild of Echo Park
based singer-songwriter, Patrick Phillips, who has assembled a band around him that LA Magazine calls, "something of a supergroup of the L.A. scene."
Performing inside the aural vicinity
of power-pop and indie-psychedelic rock, those who listen to Water Slice’s songs can expect to become connected with the struggles, sorrows, and reflective nuances found in Phillip’s songwriting. At the same token, Water Slice’s music is greatly accessible,
remarkably groovy, and elicits a happier time and place for its listeners to travel back to. Songs like “Please Remember” touch upon the notion of one’s current state and putting yourself under the microscope. It’s embracing your flaws and learning not to
freak out about where your life is headed. Looking closer at “This Way”, it examines how if one’s past life is creeping up on them, then change lanes and head in a different direction. If one thing is clear, the record encapsulates the belief that life is
constantly shifting and only the beholder can control their own trajectory from completely going off the rails.
Water Slice’s self-titled debut EP hit the web in August 2018 on all major streaming services.
