Elk Walking - Tambo-rock, Chicago
The band has evolved over the last few years from an acoustic duo into a full band, debuting "Between Us" as their first full-length, an album of honesty. The band, freshly formed, wanted to create an album that would capture the essence of the groups newly discovered energy. The album’s songs are for romantic love; the magical bliss of love or the unending sadness of breaking apart, but also for the love of one’s own kind; the desperate ache of watching another suffer, and the power within ourselves.
GIRL K - Indie alt-pop, Chicago
In Fall 2017, Kathy Patino self-released her debut album ‘Sunflower Court’ with great acclaim. The album incorporates a unique blend of somber yet inviting undertones. ‘Sunflower Court’ creates an uplifting and delightful atmosphere that playfully balances painfully honest, heartbroken lyricism. Recording as a solo artist and often performing with a full band, GIRL K is ready to send you off swooning and crooning.
Books - Indie Rock/New Wave, Chicago
Fresh off the release of their debut EP, "Novella", Books combines youthful exuberance with world-weary wisdom to deliver an essential combination of timeless, heart-on-your-sleeve pop. With influences ranging from C86 indie to driving post-punk, Books' unique sound is at once familiar and radically innovative.
ELSIE BINX - Rock, Detroit
They successfully released their full-length, 12-song sophomore album, ‘That’s What She Said’, in April of 2017. Since then, they’ve been playing out all around the Metro Detroit area as a 6-8 piece band, sometimes including 2 background vocalists as well as a keyboard player/background vocalist. They’ve traveled to Philadelphia, Toledo, and have recently played at Whisky A Go-Go in West Hollywood, California.
My Bad- Rock, Chicago
Good ole boys playing some hot sweaty rock n roll, bringing rhythmic Latin sounds to punk inspired music.
