Standing strong between the high-handed anthemic choruses of Foster the People and the retro synth melodies of MGMT along with a dash of wildman flutist antics, Gentlemen Hall has established itself as one of the most talked about bands to emerge from Boston in recent years. Beginning as a group of friends hanging in college dorms in the mid 2000s the 6 guys formed the band in 2008. After winning numerous accolades such as MTV's Best Breakout Band in 2009 and Boston's Best Act in 2011, the band was nominated and won Billboard's Battle of the Bands and made history being the first independent band to perform on the Billboard Music Awards in 2011. In September 2011 they released their debut EP "When We All Disappear" (http://gentlemenhall.com/freedownload) to critical acclaim and toured nationally throughout 2012.
They are currently finishing their full length album which is due out in 2013
WRINGS is an American alternative pop/rock band formed in Sacramento, California in 2011. The band comprises vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Zack Gray, lead guitarist Sean Stack, and drummer Brandon Lee.
WRINGS' music is a melancholic blend of alternative rock and electro-pop. With influences ranging from Coldplay, Radiohead, The Killers, U2 and Muse, Gray's lyrics convey the darker sides of relationships while still maintaining a "silver lining" positive message. Arjan Writes of Grammy.com describes the music as, "melancholic, atmospheric melodies and well-constructed soundscapes that are bursting with veiled optimism".
Having only been together for over a year, WRINGS have made some considerable strides. They have opened for notable acts; Imagine Dragons, AWOLNATION, Lindsey Pavao (NBC's "The Voice"), The Features and K.Flay. They were chosen to perform on the finale show of Sacramento's annual "Concert in the Park" series, with over 5000 in attendance. Most recently, they were awarded "2012 Musician of the year" at the "Raw Awards". With a handful of fresh new material and a captivating live show, WRINGS is surely on the cusp of bigger things to come.
