The Bloody Jug Band
Founded in 2009 and hailing from Orlando, Florida, this 8-piece group has adapted traditional Jug band instruments like washboard, washtub bass, mandolin and harmonica to create their unique sound. The band has performed all over the South Eastern United States and shared the stage with notable acts such as Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band, Joe Buck, Edwin McCain, 3 Bad Jacks, Old Man Markley and many others...
COPPER BONES is rugged... We're like the Marlboro Man, minus the Marlboro. We're like Genghis Khan, minis the silly hat. We're like Crocodile Dundee, minus the accent. We're like Steve Irwin, but alive. We're like a Bear but more badass. We're like a Lion but bigger and stronger. We're like a BOLT OF FRIGGIN' LIGHTNING wrapped inside a TORNADO wrapped inside a TSUNAMI wrapped inside a CATEGORY 20 HURRICANE.
A Brilliant Lie
A Brilliant Lie is a think-outside-the-box alternative rock band from Orlando, FL. Since 2010, this on-the-rise band has received airtime on many of Central Florida's largest Clear Channel and college radio stations. They have performed multiple shows at the famous House of Blues (both as a supporting & headlining act). Additionally, they have secured slots at the Florida Music Festival four years in a row (supporting Anberlin, Minus the Bear, Less Than Jake, and more), and landed a slot at Sunfest 2012 (supporting Passion Pit, Coheed & Cambria, Foreigner, Snoop Dogg, and more). Their latest release "Waking Vessels" (2013) is a joint venture between ABL and renowned producer James Paul Wisner (Paramore, Underoath, Dashboard Confessional, and more).
Go to college. Get a job... or not. Become a rock star.
It may not be a typical sequence of events, but it's the tale of June Divided. While most starving artists cave in and join the 9 to 5 world, founding members Melissa Menago (vocals, guitar) and Chris Kissel (guitar) turned their backs on the struggling job market and started a band.
...As the pieces fell into place, they turned to the only logical place to find a drummer… Craigslist. It was there that they met and soon fell in love with Keith Gill. Adding Rich Mancinelli (Taking Sides) on bass, the band became a quartet.
June Divided has an uncanny mass appeal. Drawing on post-rock guitar work and undeniable pop rock sensibilities, there is something for Explosions In The Sky and Jimmy Eat World fans alike. Brandishing honest lyrics, each song is a personal outlet. "A good song is universal – something we can all feel in one way or another," says Menago.
With their first single "Bullet" already picking up airplay and a debut EP slated for a Feb. 11, 2011 release, it's no wonder the Philadelphia-based group is getting a lot of attention. According to producer / mix engineer Dan Malsch (Tantric, Framing Hanley, Forever The Sickest Kids), they are "getting off to a good start".
Jordan Esker & The Hundred Percent
Jordan Esker is a self-taught musician with 90s emo history, a 60s soul phase, and an ambient Gospel future. He has gone from being the screamer in a heavy rock band to releasing a solo acoustic EP. Esker, and a college friend, Phil Nettle, produced and recorded his first full-length, "Best Supporting Actor," over the course of four months in various houses around Tallahassee and Tampa, Florida. After releasing "Best Supporting Actor," Jordan formed The Hundred Percent, consisting of Vincent Montemarano, who has sang and played with Jordan since age 13, on drums and vocals, Matt Raspo on keys and vocals, and Emmit Dobbyn on bass. After touring the southeast, being featured in Creative Loafing's music issue as one of 10 breakout bands, and performing a few times on Tampa's 88.5 community supported radio, they are set to release their first songs as a band together in October 2016 and tour through Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas, and Tennessee.
Centered around and generally composed with her acoustic guitar, the music of the Multiple Me makes use of a 4-piece band like it's conducting a genre experiment. The songs cover a wide range of musical stylings--many times within one song-- but they are all anchored by Lauren's distinctly expressive performance. Her voice is both sweet and heavy, like a chocolate sledgehammer; it can fly above a bloody battlefield or gut-punch your heart. Each song is built differently, from straight-ahead anthems to complex arrangements normally reserved for the speediest of speed metal. They can groove and rock, swing and sway, bounce and soar. Throughout the variety, Lauren Carder and the Multiple Me gives each song the right pieces to let it flower into something strong and unique, and will always keep you on your toes.
