VDG got their start in 2014 in El Monte, California. Members Juan (Vox/Guitar), Erik (Bass), Branda (Vox/Guitar), and Gerson (Drums) have managed to combine their love of memes, Tom Cruise, and early Aughts guitar rock into a sound that they describe as “Cringe Rock”. Mixing lyrics about love and heartbreak with song titles like “Sad Eyes Buscemi” and “Crying in the Club (New Years Eve)”, VDG are getting ready to record and release their debut E.P. by the end of the year.
Todavia is the Los Angeles based dream-pop project by Rhyan Riesgo. From writing the words to all elements of sound including lead vocals, guitar, electric drums, and keyboards, to creating soulful, dreamy soundscapes she commands multi- instrumentalism and insists that all lone sounds are purposefully placed. All music is written and produced In a little room just outside Los Angeles, California.
Shallow Halls is a Garage rock band formed in Santa Fe Springs. They’re made up of Drummer Gary Villar, Lead Vocalist and guitarist George Delgado, bassist Diego Martinez, and guitarist Jacob Diaz. Their first EP titled ‘Bad Habits’ debuted November of last year. The EP is full of high energy, memorable lyrics and to top it all off George's vocals echo that of early punk signers.
