Stream Till I Fall's New EP + Release Show Announced

The new Till I Fall record is available now everywhere music is streamed!  To see the album's magic come alive, don't miss their EP Release Show on Friday May 12 at Forager in downtown San Jose!

Big thanks to local newspaper Metro for showing some love for the new EP:
"Till I Fall capture that anger with their punchy sound. There’s the galloping Blink-182 drumming, the cranked guitars and the overlapping, nasal melodies, which mirror a head swimming with so many thoughts, it’s impossible to grasp at any single one."

Martay Releases New Album "Before The Bouquet" & Video

Martay, my soul-sister and recent partner-in-crime in Austin for SXSW, just released her new album Before The Bouquet last Friday!  You can find the album on all major outlets, including iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.  Martay also released her music video for "Aye-Yi-Yay" yesterday, featuring some great choreography in the scenic California desert.  Check out what this artistic singer-songwriter from the Central Coast of California has to offer.  My personal favorite is "Stick-Up" which tells the story about dangerous romantic entanglement.

Planet Booty + Barb Rocks = Bootylicious Team!

I am proud to announce that Oakland trio Planet Booty, known for their infectious live shows filled with endorphin-fueled electro-funk dance music, have joined the Barb Rocks management roster!  If you haven't experienced Planet Booty yet, then you're missing out on the most entertaining band the Bay Area has to offer!  Not only do their performances pack venues every time they play, but everyone at the show raves about it for days after.  Frontman Dylan Germick is a true performer in every sense, engaging the audience with every look and body movement, add in Josh Cantero's powerful, soul-filled vocals, a dash of horns, plus Rob Gwin masterfully holding down the rhythm section, and you have the hardest working three-piece with a big sound that gets the audience dancing until the last unforgettable note.  I recently had the front row experience with some Planet Booty grinding on the dance floor, including a sweaty forehead serenade from Dylan, therefore, I can personally guarantee the euphoric feeling one has leaving the show. I cannot rave enough about this talented band that I truly believe will go far.  Planet Booty just played two packed SXSW official showcases in Austin last month and are scheduled to play the Oregon Eclipse Festival in August.  I am beyond honored to be part of their team and help them achieve their goals.  The band is going on tour twice this summer and releasing a new album, so there's a lot of work ahead.  I encourage you to watch their latest video for their new single "Naked" and to follow them on social media:

Eyes on the Shore's highly anticipated new EP Maestranza premiered in SF Weekly yesterday and it's so GOOD!  You can stream the whole album now, including my favorite track "Starting Fires."  The band funded the album entirely via a pre-order campaign through their website, which just shows how loyal their fans are, excited to get the new EP on vinyl.  Eyes on the Shore's EP Release Show is tomorrow night, Thursday November 17th, at Rickshaw Stop and we urge you to go see them live.  It will be a magical night with Owl Paws and Strange Vine supporting the band.

Life Size Models Added To Booking Roster

Barb Rocks welcomes indie rockers Life Size Models to my booking roster!  Having met the band at a Balanced Breakfast meeting last year, I instantly recognized the raw talent and charm of this young quartet that remind listeners of The Strokes.  The band has already garnered attention from CMJ and is in regular rotation at local college radio stations.

I highly recommend you watch their video for "State of Mind" and listen to their debut EP Burden of Youth on Bandcamp!

Booking Roster Grows With Skyway View

Barb Rocks welcomes ambient rockers Skyway View to my booking roster!  Skyway View features passionate vocals, over-melodic guitars, atmospheric keys, driving bass lines, and stadium drums to their 80's influenced sound that reminisces bands like The Cure and Psychedelic Furs, with a frontman in the likes of Scott Weiland that really captures the audience.  Vocalist Mr. Kerosene used to front East Bay rockers Drop Dead Sixty, whom I used to manage, so teaming up with this project is just a natural progression.  I look forward to chasing the sky with this talented six-piece that's flying high!

Skyway View's single "Made of Glass" just won Akadamia's September 2016 award for best Alternative Rock band and they have a cool video for "Crimson Petal"!
