A guitar-based indie rock band from Phoenix, Arizona.

"(Anchor) definitely left me wanting to hear more of what they have to offer. It starts with the strum of a single guitar underscoring a bittersweet lead vocal backed by a really nice harmony and takes on additional layers and urgency from there on its way to an anthemic chorus hook." - Arizona Republic

"With a breath lead vocal over abrasive guitar it begins sounding like Teenage Fanclub meets Sonic Youth, before exploding into a rhythmic assault akin to Gish era Smashing Pumpkins, while Hallock's vocals meet Billy Corgan, Nate Ruess and Gerard Way in a blender. It's propulsive and danceable with its understated synth flourishes, swirling psychedelic pop guitars and a vocal performance that is absolutely mesmerizing." - Phoenix New Times

"The Phoenix alt-indie act has a powerful sound that oscillates between subdued and unleashed on their new single, “Anchor”. Aggressive drums meet stadium-ready vocals on this reminiscent number. " - YabYum Music and Arts
With their unique brand of garage/synth-rock, a captivating, high energy live show, and an ever-growing word of mouth, the quartet of Chelsey Louise, guitarist/bassist Robert Ciuca, drummer Matthew Foos and bassist/keyboardist Ben Foos have quickly become one of the brightest up and coming bands in the entire Phoenix music scene.

Since their formation in January of 2013, the band released their self-titled EP, produced and recorded by Bob Hoag at Flying Blanket Recording, last October to rave reviews, with the Phoenix New Times calling its lead single "Like Like" "[one of ] the best things we saw, ate, and heard in 2013."

The band has also toured extensively behind this release, with gigs including opening slots for acclaimed indie rock acts PYYRAMIDS, The Love Me Nots and The Burning of Rome, appearances at the Phochella and Sidepony Music festivals, and numerous appearances on such local radio stations as KUKQ Phoenix and 93.9 KWSS.

Having just signed onto Phoenix-based label 80/20 Records, Fairy Bones is currently working on writing and recording their debut full-length album Dramabot, which will again be produced by Bob Hoag. The band also plans on touring extensively across the Southwest throughout 2014, as well as preparing a multi-media promotional campaign for Dramabot that will help continue to build on the rapid momentum they've achieved in the past year.

"If No Doubt hadn't started out as big fans of Madness, they might have sounded like Fairy Bones by the time they got to Tragic Kingdom." - Dan Moore, Phoenix New Times

"In a world where there's little original material left in music, The Fairy Bones EP restores faith that music can still be a beautiful, powerful and ultimately incredible thing." - Punk Nation

"One of my favorite debut bands of 2013 is, without a doubt, Fairy Bones. Chelsey Louise is a goddamned firecracker on stage and the band supports her histrionics and indulgences with smiles, grins and a furious garage groove. " - Mitchell Hillman, Sounds Around Town

"They're like this adorable family of miscreat elves (or, excuse me, fairies). And they will rock the roof off the house every single time... even if they're tired, or sick, or it's their second show of the night, or all three at once." - Frank Ippolito, YabYum Music and Arts
Since forming in 2011, Huckleberry, a six piece Rock & Roll Americana band, have become a stalwart of the Metro Phoenix music scene. Their sound is built around riffy guitars, jangly pianos, slippery pedal steel and nostalgic vocal harmonies. Huckleberry's energetic live show can drift from ethereal to raucous at the drop of a drumstick.
