Quiet Company
Quiet Company
Through the release of four LPs and endless touring, the Austin, Texas band Quiet Company has been making a name for themselves nationally with their energetic live shows and their anthemic, dynamic, indie rock which critics have called a mix of The Beatles, Death Cab for Cutie, Arcade Fire and Weezer. They’ve gained a huge fanbase while gathering praise from The New York Times, TIME, NPR, Last Call with Carson Daly, Paste Magazine, Houston Chronicle, Austin Chronicle and more.

Quiet Company won Rock Band of the Year during SXSW 2016, adding to their
previous 11 Austin Music Awards including Band of the Year, Album of the Year, Rock Band of the Year, Indie Band of the Year and Song of the Year, all won on the strength of their 2011 release We Are All Where We Belong.

After the success of their 2013 album re-release, A Dead Man on My Back: Shine Honesty Revisited, Quiet Company was featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and chosen to be a Red Bull Sound Select Artist, all of which rekindled interest in We Are All Where We Belong and shot the album to #7 on the iTunes Rock charts nearly 2 years after its release.

In 2015, Quiet Company released their 4th full length, Transgressor, their most explosive and exposed collection of songs to date. Recorded in 14 intense days of live tracking at Orb Recording Studios in Austin, the band captured a guitar-driven larger-than-life sound with Matt Noveskey (Blue October) producing and the legendary Tim Palmer (U2, Pearl Jam, The Cure) mixing.

With its soaring guitars and throbbing bass lines drawing comparisons to Foo Fighters, Pavement and Manchester Orchestra, Quiet Company’s Transgressor will be leading the way as rock makes a return to form.
The Rocketboys
The Rocketboys
Mainstays of the Austin, Texas music scene for nearly a decade, anthemic indie rock band The Rocketboys recently released their third full-length album Certain Circles – “a feast of lush, layered sound and soaring harmonies” (KUTX 98.9FM). Their dynamic, expansive songs often outsize the clubs in which they’re performed and have garnered The New York Times’ apt description, “… sounds like an amped up Death Cab for Cutie with Coldplay-style melodies.”

Throughout The Rocketboys’ career many films, commercials, and TV shows (most notably Glee, Private Practice, and One Tree Hill) have harnessed The Rocketboys’ thematic energy and offered exposure to new audiences. Tours opening for bands such as Twenty-One Pilots, The Mowgli’s, and Relient K have also significantly elevated the band’s national profile.

Recent years have brought many career-defining moments including working with Grammy-winning producer Joe Chiccarelli, cracking the worldwide iTunes charts with single “Viva Voce,” two tours both opening for and backing Thrice-frontman Dustin Kensrue, and a first-ever overseas tour in Germany.

Their music has always provided a snapshot of the conflicts and hopes of its members – finding one’s voice, brotherhood, faith, death, and the relationship between artist and audience. Certain Circles offers a lens into the ongoing process of finding one’s identity as an artist. The musical accompaniment is “lush, layered soundscapes” (AbsolutePunk) and “gray-hued swells of chorused guitar and minor-key piano processionals” (The A.V. Club).
Demitasse
Demitasse
Demitasse is a two piece downbeat, softly sung acoustic group. This is the side project for Erik Sanden and Joe Reyes of the band Buttercup. Demitasse was chosen by NPR as one of the top bands to see at SXSW 2014. Singing high falsetto harmonies the band lilts between melody, spoken word and noise. The sound is somewhere between Simon & Garfunkel, Leonard Cohen, and the Beach Boys on a dark day.
