Emma Peridot is driven to create music that will capture the hearts of masses, all the while remaining unapologetic about who she is. Her alt-pop sound blends elements of pop-rock and electropop, and her lyrical content examines traditional themes of love, lust, angst and heartbreak, while also getting vulnerable about anxiety, self-doubt, and insecurity.
The Velies are the Quad Cities, USA house band. They exemplify American Rock music at it’s finest, blending the testosterone-filled grit of Uncle Tupelo, The Heartbreakers and Crazy Horse with the feminine passion of Janis Joplin, Chrissie Hynde and Bonnie Raitt. They can be rough and raw with songs like “Tonight” and “How To Be”, but on the turn of a dime, they can be can create power-pop ear-candy on tracks such as “Hardware Store Man” and “Traveling Boots”.
Nicole Boggs & The Reel are questioning everything. Rooted in three-part harmony and existential blues, they inject rock ‘n’ roll riffs and vindicated vocals into social commentary, holding a mirror to the absurdity of modern life.
Nicole Boggs (bass, lead vox), Alex Kramer (guitars, vox), and Sam Gyllenhaal (guitars, vox) bring drastically different personalities, philosophies and influences to the table. The songwriting team has crafted their sound by zeroing in on each other’s strengths and never shying away from hard conversations. They build common ground through the tension and release of creating together; they don’t settle until everyone is satisfied.
Growing up in musical families, they each walked solo musical paths before coming together for their first official band release, Scenes From Last Year in 2019. Dripping with razor-edged sarcasm, their hard-hitting follow-up EP None of Your Business dropped in the summer of 2020, in the depths of the first wave of Covid-19. Since then, the group has been honing their collective sound behind the scenes, quietly and diligently working on their latest release, Dystopian Book Club.
