Taylor and the Apes are based in NYC and have developed a loyal following and a reputation for their superb songwriting and dynamic, raw, exciting live shows. Led by singer/guitarist Taylor Elliott, the Apes have developed a unique sound, influenced by every decade of rock n' roll's existence: '50's doo wop harmonies, thick Rhodes/Hammond keys of the '60's, '70's grand guitar solos, the big drum sounds of the '80's, the '90's guitar crunch, all wrapped together with current, yet timeless lyrics. Elliott's singing is direct, yet humble; and he sounds somewhere between Paul Westerberg and Tom Petty. After a busy year and gathering an every-growing fan base, the apes have just released their debut album, american livin'.

Across The Board (ATB) is an award-winning Canadian alt pop/rock band of multi-instrumentalist musicians with over 300 Youtube videos, debut album, a concept EP and now a second full length album, SONIC BOOM, slated for release May 4th, 2018, who seamlessly combine creative talents to push their pop-rock sounds to the edge of the rock 'n roll envelope with harmonious power vocals and catchy electric guitar riffs. The lead single, “Sonic Boom” reached #4 on the iTunes Canada Rock chart on September 11, 2018.

Forged from garage jams and basement Youtube sessions, “Across The Board” finally broke out of the internet box with their debut album “Jane On Fire” in 2016, earning the band critical acclaim for the single “Indifference” which also became their first track to hit the FM radio waves and win an international independent music award.

ATB's second record, the EP "AMENDS", was released in 2017 as a concept album centered around the theme of facing one's demons and resentments in order to break free of the restraints of past mistakes. The first single,” Don’t Drag Me Down” was featured on the International Women's Day website, and continues to receive airplay on US College Radio, internet and terrestrial FM radio in Canada and internationally including Australia, South America, Asia and Europe.

ATB was featured at Canadian Music Week in 2017, and toured across Canada from coast-to-coast by rail to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. ATB also toured Newfoundland and Vancouver in the summer of 2017 with the EP AMENDS and will be touring Canada again this summer with their newest full length album SONIC BOOM.

NEW ALBUM RELEASE MAY 4TH, 2018:

SONIC BOOM, ATB’s third major record and second full – length album, will be released May 4th in conjunction with a release party at THE HIDEOUT in Toronto, Canada.

Kevin Bianchi gets a free guitar from his youth pastor and discovers Bob Dylan

As a lifelong seeker of truth, Kevin Bianchi has spent his entire musical career embracing and wrestling with the mystery of life and love in song. This has been exemplified by his time as the lead singer and songwriter for the indie rock band, the Chestertons. Having achieved regional success with the single 'Coast Road' and dynamic performances opening for artists such as James McCartney, he now begins a new journey with the formation of Vanishing Shores.

"The need to reach out and connect with those around us has never been greater," states Bianchi. It is this realization that inspires and informs each song by Vanishing Shores. From the opening of 'In Between' to the closing notes of 'Blurred' on their self-titled EP, the listener is invited to become a part of the story, not as a stranger but as a fellow traveler who is loved and accepted. The answers may not be found. Everything known may collapse at any moment, but 'even still, I won't let you go.' This promise, in all of its emotional complexity, is the true vision of Vanishing Shores.

Influenced by diverse artists such as Neil Finn and Elvis Costello, Vanishing Shores is not 'business as usual' but a band that pursues beauty wherever it may lead. Just like their musical inspirations, Vanishing Shores strive to deliver passionate, well-crafted rock and roll in each and every performance. As the band continues to develop, each song points to a future that is filled with limitless potential, founded on the power of music and the community it creates.

Drawing from Austin Wasielewski's (guitars, vocals) familiarity of psychedelic/acid rock, rap, R&B, folk/Americana, the sound is brought together by Tred Litely (drums, vocals) pop-punk, funk, indie-rock, math rock and fusion pulls, while Ryan D. Lee (bass) is a master of all things 80s, 90s and present. Together their lyrics seek to address the turmoil we experience every day by virtue of living in a modern world, but specifically a modern world so torn up by connecting troves of people who still feel disconnected.

Meeting at the community based rehearsal space Music City in San Francisco, the trio immediately found a musical connection. Their upcoming EP which pays homage to the place that brought them together is out this Fall. With the help of their community, they are setting their sights on bringing their music and message to the world....and we're eager to hear more
