Spose
Spose
27-year-old producer and emcee Spose, hailing from Wells, Maine USA, has been making music since age 9 and rhyming since 1999 when he was 14. Since the release of his debut album "Preposterously Dank" in 2008 on his own imprint, Spose has seen his musical endeavors reach a new plateau. He was named Maine's "Best HipHop Act" for both 2008 and 2009 at the WePushButtons Awards and also named "Best Hiphop Act" in the Portland Phoenix's 2010 Best Music Poll. In 2009, he released a mixtape with fellow emcee Cam Groves entitled "We Smoked It All." A track off that mixtape, produced by Spose himself, "I'm Awesome" received regional radio play in New England which garnered Spose his first major label recording contract with Universal Republic Records. The single was released in March 2009 nationally and would eventually go gold after selling over 500,000 digital copies in just a few months. Spose used the opportunity to build his own company, the Preposterously Dank Entertainment label based out of Wells, Maine. Artists signed to his imprint include himself, Spose, as well as the aforementioned emcee Cam Groves, hip-hop trio Educated Advocates, and the space-funk-sex-r'n'b of Doctor Astronaut. In 2010, Spose released both "In Sessions," the debut album from Educated Advocates, as well as his own indie album "Happy Medium."

Spose has since left Universal and released his independent album "The Audacity!" - which peaked at #6 on the iTunes hiphop albums chart.

Spose has performed with international acts such as Drake, J. Cole, B.o.B., Wiz Khalifa, Ke$ha, Weezer, Stone Temple Pilots, Cage the Elephant, Mike Posner, and Kardinal Offishal. He has also performed with the cream of the underground hip-hop crop: 7L & Esoteric, Brother Ali, Sean Price, Ill Bill, Kool Keith, Mac Lethal & more.

Spose recently launched his website label's web site at http://www.pdank.com/ as well as an online store through Maine-based indie record chain Bull Moose Music called Spose*Mart at http://www.bullmoose.com./
Paranoid Social Club
Paranoid Social Club
Paranoid Social Club is the bastard brainchild of Dave Gutter and Jon Roods of the Rustic Overtones. Hailing from Portland, ME the band has received international accolades for it's high energy style. Equally inspired by punk, soul, psychedelic rock, and the human psyche; PSC is a musical movement like no other. Picture Jimi Hendrix smashing a keyboard or The Clash backing Bob Dylan at the Newport Folk Festival. The fervor of their incendiary live show has propelled them to that of cult status. Paranoid Social Club has managed to create one of a kind anthems using sarcasm and beauty, two things that rarely coincide.

Paranoid's debut Axis ll, spawned the hit "Wasted" which was featured as the theme for Broken Lizard's cult classic film Beerfest, as well as being the soundtrack to every college party in America. Their follow up double LP Axis lll & l featured the single "Two Girls" and was remixed and released on EMI's ON Entertainment record label. "Two Girls" was used in HBO's series Entourage and Cathouse and birthed a house remix album produced by club dj's ; Invisible Kid, Powder, and Butterface and Clinch. "Two Girls" quickly became PSC's biggest international hit, as it landed them on countless radio stations most requested list.

In 2009, PSC began work on their fourth studio album and enlisted a variety of their musical peers: Gavin Castleton, Tony Mcnaboe (Rustic Overtones, Ray Lamontagne) Trent Gay (Stars Look Down, All Night Chemist), Craig Sala (Planeside) and Chris Moulton (The Cambiata, Vanityites).

Paranoid Social Clubs current line up: Dave Gutter, Jon Roods, Trent Gay, and Craig Sala
Kenya Hall
Kenya Hall
Kenya Hall has been described as a "Soul Powerhouse" by Rolling Stone Magazine. Drawing her writing and performing influences from Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, and Sharon Jones, Kenya is not only relevant in what she says, but poignant in how she relays it. Leaning heavily on Soul, Hip Hop, Funk, and the seed of what makes a rock and roll artist, when Kenya sings, everyone in the room understands.
