PRETTY YEARS
Forging a new modern 80's vibe...
BEN ANDERSON
BEN ANDERSON
Music is the beautiful combination of structure and artistic expression. Singer songwriter Ben Anderson writes and performs with balance as his mantra. Anderson’s gift for strong melody, harmony, and lyrical content is consistent, even if his sound ventures into other styles of music. His bluesy, soulful voice caresses you, but the music behind the caress delivers a satisfying jolt.

Ben has released two EPs Roosevelt Row and Where the Lights Go? They are available at eitherwww.benandersonmusic.com or chromodyne.com.

He performs around the Phoenix area, seen haunting the local popular music venues and clubs. Ben’s follow up EP is set to be out early 2017. Stay tuned!
FORESTEATER
FORESTEATER
Melodramatic irony on an island in outer-space surrounded by electric rainbows.

Foresteater is the moniker for Singer/Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist Mikey Pro from Phoenix AZ USA. Created in 2015 after a dream he had about "a band playing on an island in outer-space with electric rainbows everywhere." Foresteater's debut EP "Nightlife of the Exploding Heads" was released May 6th 2016. It's difficult to place Foresteater's music in one Genre but it can be described as "Melodramatic songs with psychedelic harmonies under catchy melodies."
ALI A & THE AGENCY
ALI A & THE AGENCY
After a proper introduction to the Phoenix music scene with their unforgettable, high-energy live shows, Ali A and The Agency have a lot to say.

Guitarist Travis Prillaman is captivatingly cool with a guitar that's become a natural extension of his God-given limbs, and funk is second-nature to self-taught bass man Pedro Cortes, whose rhythmic foundation will make you want to groove. Saxophonist Alex Whaley uses his sultry, Coltrane-influenced flair to bring The Agency's sound to new heights, and drummer Jeff Gonzalez stays locked in on the one with his progressive rock, metal, and funk drum patterns. New addition, Jared Michael, rounds out the group with two decades of key-tickling inspired by the likes of Porcupine Tree, Snarky Puppy and Ben Folds.

Dubbed "... one of the best singers in the valley of the sun," by Dave Bloom of Dave Bloom Drums, and "... a phenomenal talent whose show cannot be missed," by Manny Tripodis, Proprietor of The Rogue, Ali A's larger-than-life voice will fill you with funk and serenade you with soul.

Viewing the world through stunner shades, her lyrics approach everyday life with humor, honesty, and a longing for what we all desire: Love, Acceptance, and A Damn Good Time.
