Sleeptalk is a 5 piece rock band form Los Angeles. Their infectious music brings the listeners to endearing times of late nights and love.
Born in Eagle Rock, a neighborhood in Northeast Los Angeles, the trio GROVES rented a house and began creating a dynamic sound that’s experimental, unafraid, and limitless. The native Texans Stephen Salisbury (vocals/guitar), Reid Guidry (bass) and Will Smith (drums) met in high school and after years of sharing the same passion for music, left their hometown of Groves, TX for LA, in pursuit of starting a band.

Highlighted by tight grooves and melodically rich guitar interplay, the trio balance their approach with dark synth underpinnings and vocals that are at once urgent and cinematic. These are big alt-rock tunes with an intuition for structure and a taste of history. Picture a modern American version of The Police meets Phoenix, with small town charm.

‘Ender’, their debut single, released in January 2016, embodies Stephen Salisbury’s infatuation with Space, sci-fi, and infinite beings over an addictive and hypnotizing chorus progression.

The second single ‘Swim’, is more upbeat and takes a dreamy direction, it's the soundtrack for a perfect California day. After releasing only two songs, GROVES found themselves embarking across the US on their first tour, supporting the legendary 80's sensation, Culture Club. The momentum carried onto the radio, garnering attention from Alt 98.7fm LA's New Alternative, as well as The World Famous KROQ.

In February of 2017, GROVES released their first body of work, the debut EP ‘Not For Nothing’ via MDDN Records.
First in Flight
After a successful first year with major shows at Great American Music Hall, Rickshaw Stop, Bottom of the Hill, and a Pacific Northwest Tour that featured stops in Seattle, Portland and more, First in Flight is ready to take on 2018. This neo-80's Indie Funk group features a synth-driven rock sound similar to that of Walk the Moon, The Killers, or Duran Duran, and they always bring a extra level of energy to each performance. Their new single "Syringe" was released to Spotify and Apple Music on November 10th, 2017 and met with high praise. Come #GetOnBoard with First in Flight for a wild trip.
