Don't Believe in Ghosts
Don't Believe In Ghosts kicked off 2019 by selling out their first-ever headline show at NYC's iconic Bowery Ballroom. Looking out across the room that Saturday night, it was evident not only in the faces present, but the energy they contained, that something special is happening.
Formed in 2016 by singer Steven Nathan, Don’t Believe In Ghosts' unique blend of eclectic and experimental rock-based music contains a modern alternative / indie pop twist, and has been consistently building momentum.
Along with the release of their first EP, as well as their debut LP “Give It meaning,” the band has released multiple self-produced videos, gaining even further exposure, including features on VEVO as well as song features in the US OPEN and many TV show placements from Nat Geo, Travel Channel to MTV.
With an entirely new album ready to go for this year, Don’t Believe In Ghosts released their latest single ‘Don’t Wake Me Up’ on Feb 15. The single was mixed by 8 time Grammy-winning mixer Ken Lewis (X Ambassadors, Bruno Mars, Lorde, Fun, One Republic, etc). The band has it’s eyes set on touring this Spring. Don’t Believe In Ghosts will be releasing multiple singles and videos before the release of the next full length album later this year.

"Drive!Drive! isn't just another internet pop band. The alternative pop creation was first formed in the mind of Alex Johnson. Craving to create something new and powerful. Not only with music but with a brand and aesthetic that would catch everyone's attention.
Alex searched for members that wanted to play music for the love of it. Being in Nashville, a city chock-full of professional musicians, it was incredibly difficult. After a year of searching, he finally found Gavin Hurlburt and Philip DeLuca. After their first practice, they knew it was meant to be something bigger than themselves.
Before even releasing a song, they started developing a cult following with their personal engagement on social media. With their first single reaching over 100K streams on Spotify, they released two other singles that have paved the way for Drive!Drive! to tour the South East and play sold-out local shows. With heavy pop hooks, clean guitar riffs and retro synths that get people dancing at every show, they are a force to be reckoned with. "
"Sepoy is a four-piece alternative rock band formed in New York City in 2012. Sepoy’s members share a common interest in making music that delves into the ambient, atmospheric and melancholic. Their music is characterized by catchy guitar riffs and vocal melodies, along with soaring guitar solos and groovy drum and bass sections. The different elements are all delicately balanced and intertwined to produce a texturally rich, unique sonically satisfying experience. Their pieces exhibit a broad stylistic variety – ranging from the darker, progressive-rock influenced pieces like “Come Home”, to the more pop-sensible pieces like the ballad “Back To You” and the crowd favorite epic “Reno”.
The word “sepoy” was originally used to refer to an indigenous soldier serving in the army of an imperialist conqueror. The Sepoy’s dilemma applied in a more generic, modern day context is the motif behind their lyrical themes.
Sepoy regularly plays live in New York City and rocked out venues in the Lower East Side, Williamsburg and Astoria, and has gained the reputation of being a high energy live act with a big sound.
Sepoy released their debut album - Impasse in July 2016 and have received critical reception for the hour long album on various online Indie Blogs.
Sepoy’s members are Amey Rairikar (lead guitar), Anupam Burra (vocal, keys, guitar), Rahul Ratakonda (bass) and Sriram Raman (drums).
Wilmah, started in 2018, consists of two NYC college students taking a vast range of influences from the likes of The 1975, Frank Ocean, John Mayer, and Jimi Hendrix. Through ethereal synths, funky guitars, heavily layered vocals, and electronic drum loops, Wilmah strives to make genuine, introspective pop music that transcends genre and generations.
