From a basement in New Jersey to new LA digs, States & Capitals is a project by 21-year old Richie Arthur. For the past year and a half, Richie has been tucked away in a home studio in Los Angeles, California crafting an Alternative sound. Finished demos sent Richie on a trip to Nashville, TN in the spring of 2017 to collaborate with Jonathan Roye (Owl City, Kelsea Ballerini, Forever The Sickest Kids). The result would be the six-track, “CREATIONS&MEMORIES (EP)” a collaborative effort between Richie and Jon.

The band let go of the debut single “Drive” on August 4th, 2017, the follow-up single “Jumping In Front Of These Cars” on October 27th, 2017, and "Take Me Back For The Night" February 23rd, 2018. The C&M EP was released March 9, 2018, via JIRNY, LLC/STEM, and is now available at all major digital retail and streaming outlets.

States & Capitals kicked off the first leg of the 2018 CREATIONS&MEMORIES TOUR on March 7, 2018, at The Study in Los Angeles, CA continuing throughout the mid-west (including SXSW Showcase, Southwest Invasion), and ending at Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA. On April 10, 2018, the band announced the second leg of the tour, which will include the entire US kicking off on July 5, 2018.
VYNYL is the brainchild of Wave Pop duo Andrew Cole and John Tyler. After moving to America from South Africa, Cole met Tyler through a friend and they soon realized they shared a similar passion for music. After graduating High School, they decided to head west - picking up everything they owned and moving to the city of Denver, Colorado, they reinvented themselves in a new and exciting environment of sights, sounds, and experiences.
They worked tirelessly to define their signature blend of lush indie pop featuring authentic 80's analog instruments. What they came up with is a hybrid sound, similar to other genre-bending pop/rock acts like Tears for Fears, The Neighbourhood, and The 1975. Cole's catchy and smart lyrical content coupled with Tyler's dark crooning vocals, paint a perfect picture for the complex themes the band tackles.
After the explosive release of their debut single, "Reaction", which received airplay on alternative radio stations across their home state, They journeyed in to the Blasting Room (Rise Against, A Day To Remember, Flobots, 888) to further craft their sound. Their second single "Blue Dreams" went viral and is played on iHeart radio stations and local broadcasts in Denver, Fort Collins, Colorado Springs, and more. Their newest single: "Dancing With The Devil" - finds the band breaking in to the mainstream in 2019, as they receive airtime and exposure to audiences all across the world.
With only 2 years as a performing act under their belt, their momentum is truly exciting to watch. They have gone from opening in small clubs to multiple sold out shows and festival appearances alongside international acts such as Blink 182, Bleachers, Dreamers, Sir Sly, St. Lucia, The Plain White Tees, and many more. You don't want to sleep on VYNYL - The future for these young, up and coming artists looks incredibly bright.
"Valienta (Formerly known as Racing On The Sun) out of Denver Colorado are a three piece group fronted by singer-songwriter Alfonso Cervantes. The band has been touring coast to coast in the US rapidly gaining national attention with their electric live set and powerful and catchy songs. Emerging out of the Alternative Rock genre Valienta have embraced a Pop style that one minute is dark and broody, then the next colorful and sweet. The band just finished recording their debut EP in Austin, TX with Producer Joseph Milligan (Formerly of Anberlin) and the record is set to release early 2017.
