Mother Feather
Mother Feather
If you're feeling this you're my next victim," front-woman Ann Courtney intones with steely-eyed confidence, assuring the audience of motherfeathers ("MFers") of their submission to the cult. With their ferocious and enthralling live show, Mother Feather has ignited a wildfire of followers since hitting the New York club scene in 2010 and attracted the attention of heavy music legend and Metal Blade CEO Brian Slagel, who signed the self-proclaimed "pop cock rock" outfit to the label in 2015.

Epic songs warrant larger-than-life costumes and dance, and a garishly bedazzled Courtney and hype-woman sidekick Elizabeth Carena slither, thrust, and high-kick their way through a set that invokes Marc Bolan's cheeky swagger, Bowie's braggadocio, and the howl and shimmy of a "To Bring You My Love"-era PJ Harvey. NYC rock mainstays Matt Basile and Gunnar Olsen occupy an authoritatively savage rhythm section propelled by Chris Foley's blistering one-man guitarmy. This is pop cock rock: anthemic riffs, now-or-never bravado, and tight dance beats bolstered by pop precision and purity of mission.

"'Mother Feather' is the muse," says Courtney. "It is the embodiment of your wildest inspiration. Every song is a challenge -- to myself and the audience. I want catharsis and I want it now."

Mother Feather is: Ann Courtney - vox | Elizabeth Carena - vox + keys | Matt Basile - bass | Chris Foley - guitar | Gunnar Olsen - drums
Grand Canyon
Grand Canyon
In an era of computer-made, beat-driven music, Grand Canyon is the antithesis of modern pop music. However, by focusing on musicianship and timeless songwriting, and drawing on the inspiration of the classic sounds and arrangements of the 70s, it is the kind of pop music that will be wafting through the canyons for a long time.


The Los Angeles based rock and roll band, fronted by Casey Shea (guitar/vocals) and Amy Wilcox (vocals), and driven by Joe Guese (guitar), Darice Baily (keys, vocals), Jon Cornell (bass), and Fitz Harris (drums) has self-recorded a debut album to be released Summer 2018.
Misty Boyce
Misty Boyce
Indie singer/songwriter Misty Boyce is a solo artist who’s also forged a career as a keyboardist and backing vocalist (and occasional guitarist) in touring bands for the likes of Lord Huron, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, and BØRNS. A native of New Mexico, Boyce took to the idea of a career in music at a young age, and began writing songs while in primary school. She would eventually go on to enroll at the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, where she studied jazz piano.



Boyce's newest and third full-length record, Get Lost, a collaboration with friends Lera Lynn and Josh Grange, was released February 16th. Receiving rave reviews from Nylon, Uproxx, and landing spots on Apple Music’s The A-List: Singer/Songwriter playlist it finds Boyce wresting valiantly with tragedy and loss, death, drugs and religion, isolation, depression, and the emptiness of fame.
