PRETTY YEARS
PRETTY YEARS
Forging a new modern 80's vibe...
FAIRY BONES
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
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!
NEW CHUMS
NEW CHUMS
Emerging from Phoenix, AZ, the indie rock band, New Chums, released their EP "See It For Myself" on October 6th, 2017 and it's bright, sunny California vibe is making waves in the music scene. Likened to bands like The Strokes, Neon Trees, and Jimmy Eat World, the Chums really know how to bring big guitars, catchy choruses, and sparkle to every beat. The foursome includes:
Vocals/Guitar-Seth Boyack: A California native who not only fronts the band with energy and style, Seth's the man behind the melodies that you won't be able to get out of your head for days.
Drums-Ben Hedlund: Straight outta Boston with plenty of talent and previous recording/touring experience, Ben provides the heartbeat to the music-the kind that'll leave you wanting more... and more.
Lead Guitar-Matt Lloyd: Recently coming off tour as a hired guitarist from Nashville, Matt's expertise and his creative/catchy hooks (played to perfection every time) add a new bite and excitement to the overall sound.
Bass-Cassandra Clark: A girl from Michigan who can really play bass, Cassandra rocks a solid foundation of the low end and provides that steady rhythm and vibe you can't help but dance to.

With national placement campaigns that have landed them on SiriusXM's AltNation's Advanced Placement, the National Hockey League, Journeys Shoes and much more, you can expect the Chums to ride the wave of success by hitting the road in the US and abroad.

‘New Chums are doing what they’ve always done best: hook-heavy power pop.’ –Mitch Hillman, Java Magazine, October 2017

‘Starting a song with a stutter is always a win for a power-pop record. Having the band hold off until the singer’s finished stuttering could get you bonus points. And that’s exactly how this record starts. “G-g-g-goin’ downtown,” with the band crashing in on the fourth “g.” Brilliant.’ –Ed Masley, AZ Central, September 14th, 2017.

‘The See It For Myself EP, which came out earlier this month, is as energetic as it is expansive. It drives relentless riffs over fast-paced drums and anthemic melodies, encapsulating the forever summer the band found by making Arizona home base.’-Ashley Harris, Phoenix New Times, October 25th, 2017
