Armies
Armies
Armies meld electro-pop with duet style anthems inspired by French pop duets of the sixties. Drawing on themes based around temptation and fidelity, Armies is the darker, seedier underbelly of love put to the soundtrack of a nightclub bathroom. Armies began in Venice Beach, CA as a commercial project conceived by Dave Gutter. For the purpose of TV and Film placement only, Gutter was commissioned to write folk style duets for male and female vocals for Viacom/Rumble. After auditioning vocalists in Los Angeles, Gutter returned to Portland and finished the record with longtime friend and singer-songwriter Anna Lombard. August, 2015 marked the release of Armies' self-titled debut which has been featured as no. 1 in Rolling Stone's '15 Great Albums You Didn't Hear in 2015'.

"With Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin's duets in mind, their voices blend perfectly on an excellent set about characters that are sad, vengeful, seedy, sneaky and jealous." - Patrick Doyle, Rolling Stone (12/18/15)
Wild Adriatic
Wild Adriatic
Wild Adriatic is a band of four friends seeking to carry forth the torch of timeless rock n roll infused with tons of soul, captivating guitar work, and an impressive live show. The Saratoga Springs, NY outfit released their latest EP “Lock & Key” in April 2012 and immediately picked back up with their relentless performance schedule throughout the East Coast.

A series of quirky music videos and a humble, eager-to-connect-with-people mindset has quickly brought the band positive attention from music lovers, press, and industry heads alike. In addition, the band has been lucky enough to be asked to support acts such as MuteMath, Matt & Kim, Company of Thieves, Flogging Molly, Third Eye Blind, Phantogram, All American Rejects, The Asteroids Galaxy Tour, Deer Tick, and many more.

“Flawlessly tight with infectious melodies and tons of soul.” – Relix | “Full of rocking blues, soul, and depth.” – The Huffington Post
