STARCRAWLER
STARCRAWLER
Starcrawler are a Los Angeles rock & roll band formed one year ago when Arrow de Wilde first met Henri Cash on the high school yard in Echo Park. The rhythm section of Austin Smith and Tim Franco came soon after, found on the streets of Hollywood. They play rock & roll music heavy and loud and their incendiary performances resemble the children of the Cramps, the Yeah Yeahs Yeahs, and Alice Cooper.

"Ants," a song they recorded days after first playing together, was quickly discovered by London DJ Matt Wilkinson and debuted on Apple Beats One radio just as the band were playing their first few shows. The DJ loved it so much, he played it twice in a row. Soon after, it found its way to Sir Elton John, who spun it on his "Rocket Hour" radio program, as well as to Zane Lowe, who played it to further accolades. Much media interest both from the music and fashion worlds has quickly followed. "Ants" & the forthcoming "Used to Know" are from an early session recorded by Steven McDonald (Red Kross) and document the unhinged beginnings of the group taking their first steps into the public eye. They have only now found the time to take a breath and are recording their more fully realized debut LP at Pax Am studios in Hollywood with Ryan Adams producing, due out later this year.

As a group, Starcrawler embodies that strange archetypal mojo that one finds in certain gangs of young rockers, only once or twice a generation; all the while still kicking and screaming as they sprint toward finding something new and entirely of their own. The band consists of Arrow de Wilde on lead vocals, Henri Cash on guitar, Austin Smith on drums, and Tim Franco on bass.
FAIRY BONES
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.

PRESS QUOTES
"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
