Raising Cadence is a 5-piece progressive/rock band from Orlando, Fl. The quintet formed in early 2014 from the remains of older local bands but with bigger hopes and an even bigger sound. Along with the musical meaning of Cadence, the name derives from a mutual friendship the band has with a man and his daughter and how their relationship became a model to live by. After completing the band line-up, RC started playing and recording new material with a great response from their local audience. With their edgy, progressive, and melodic tones, Raising Cadence is a force that is not only sure to tear through their scene, but also create new ones in the process. One thing is for certain, big things are to come from up and coming band Raising Cadence.
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).
"Now, I'm the direct descendant of the mountain man Jim Bridger. That means I got a little Injun in me. And our battle plan will be that of an Apache resistance. We will be cruel to the Germans, and through our cruelty they will know who we are. And they will find the evidence of our cruelty in the disemboweled, dismembered, and disfigured bodies of their brothers we leave behind us."-Lt. Aldo Raine, Inglorious Bastards.
Reverist is an Orlando based alternative band that credits its humble origin to medical doctor Omar Qazi, but subsequently evolved into a fuller sound with the additions of drummer Steve Addington, bassist Matthew Walsh, and violinist Cooper Johansen.
The project began while Qazi was in undergrad where he was inspired by the band Keane and taught himself to play piano and guitar. Songwriting began as an accident for him initially, but ultimately progressed into a regular, creative release in his journey to becoming a medical doctor. Qazi looked to expand the project and met seasoned drummer Steve Addington, whose experience ranges from high school marching band to playing Top 40 hits alongside a DJ. The duo added the multi-talented Walsh and Johansen in late 2015 before recording their first EP, "Dreaming Onward," at Parafonic Recording Studio in Orlando, Florida.
With there being more genres under the sun than bands to play said genres, Reverist possesses an eclectic, unique sound with solid, rich vocals that bring a captivating essence among symphonic, scientific synth blends and engaging drum beats. The quartet adds a fresh feeling to the music scene—slightly left-field with a soothing, yet animated, presence that can appeal to almost any mood.
The group has confirmed an east coast US tour in summer 2016. Their quirky, light hearted personalities shine on stage amidst their soaring choruses and eye grabbing light show. “Dreaming Onward” is now available in all major markets.
