Sharkmouth
Sharkmouth is a dank, small batch rock n roll Organ trio from Santa Rosa, Ca. Taylor "libby" cuffie plays drums, Nate Dittle plays the organ, and Joshua James Jackson plays bass. Give these boys a chance, and they'll have you dancing, screaming and smiling. What more could you ask for?
The Breaking
The Pacific Northwest has long been known as a stronghold of alternative rock, although Portland's relatively recent rise to 'cultural mecca' has created something of a faddish scene that barely resembles its roots. Nonetheless, The Breaking - a band of 90's-raised Northwesterners from the Rose City - still carry the torch that illuminated their upbringing. Their debut self-titled LP is a testament to the depth of that artistic heritage.

The Breaking challenges convention in a way that earns the group an edge and authenticity. The songs are deliberate and gripping, and the band uses their contradicting influences to great advantage. Front-man Adam Sweeney's penchant for brooding minor-key introspection collides with lead guitarist Tim Karplus' affinity for mainstream pop hooks, while bassist Rick Bouvette ties it all together with a punchy low end. The band crafts original songs with mass appeal that remain firmly rooted in the alt rock tradition of the Cascadian glory days.
The Midnight Drells
The Midnight Drells are a two-piece Rythm & Blues from San Francisco, CA. Starting in 2015, they've worked with a number of studios in the Bay Area including: Hyper Raje Productions, SAE Expression, and most recently Tiny Telephone Recordings. With the help of sound engineer, Maryam Qudus, the band was able to record their first studio tracks to 1/2" tape at Tiny Telephone's SF location.
