Kitten

Growing up in LA, KITTEN’s Chloe Chaidez never learned about limitations in her life, only possibilities. In fact, in her childhood it wasn’t even a question of whether she could be a Rock Star when she grew up... it was more of a choice of whether she wanted that or to be an Olympic Gymnast.

Upon first look at the diminutive Chaidez, you wouldn’t envision back flips off the stage and the laying bare of emotion in raw, rock and roll. Her youth belies her musical influences, which include 80s New Wave and 90’s Britpop – music that came out mostly before she was even born.

Moving to New York City upped the stakes for Chaidez. She busks in Union Square and lives in Brooklyn, testing her material on a tough crowd – New Yorkers in the downtown mecca for protest. Getting people to focus on what she was singing there was the best endorsement possible for her anthemic songs.

There are two levels in which you can appreciate Chaidez’ music. The music is sublime, but the lyrics are where her intentions are truly revealed. "I used to be afraid of expressing myself directly through the band's lyrical content. But I've been through a lot over the past couple of years, and you're gonna hear about it in this new record.”

Joining forces with young, talented musicians she has assembled for her band, Chaidez is extremely enthusiastic about going on tour. KITTEN is ready to blow your minds on the road and on their upcoming release.

The Greeting Committee

The Greeting Committee is made up of vocalist Addie Sartino, guitarist Brandon Yangmi, bassist Pierce Turcotte, and drummer Austin Fraser, who all met at their hometown high school. The band quickly emerged into the music scene after catching the attention of Lazlo Geiger, a radio personality from 96.5 The Buzz. The Greeting Committee's debut EP titled "It's Not All That Bad" captivated the hearts of listeners with its intelligent musicality and meaningful lyrics. "If you want smart, credible music with a raw energy that inspires, you just found it," says Geiger. The Greeting Committee then progressed to release it’s second EP, “Meeting People Is Easy” in 2017 through Harvest Records. "We're working to create a collaborative environment with our surroundings," explains Sartino, "To us, The Greeting Committee is an art project influenced by the listeners. The music is merely the soundtrack to something much greater." The band is currently writing for their upcoming full-length, all in the midst of touring to have as many dance parties as they possibly can.
