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 Wave Pop brainchild of Lyricist Andrew Ceronio and Producer/Frontman Tyler White. After meeting through a mutual friend, they realized they shared the same dream: creating music that invokes emotion: the kind you would seek out and purchase on vinyl. Picking up everything they owned and moving to the city of Denver, Colorado on a whim, they reinvented themselves in a new and exciting environment of sights, sounds, and experiences.

Over the period of two years, they worked tirelessly in quiet to define their signature blend of lush textures and authentic rhythmic and analog instrumentation. What they came up with, was a sound similar to other genre-bending pop/rock acts like Tears for Fears, The Neighbourhood, Blackbear, Thirty Seconds to Mars, and The 1975. Their unique writing process is a combined effort, and it relies heavily on collaboration and innovation. When listening to VYNYL, you can feel that there is something more to what you hear. Ceronio's catchy and smart lyrical content coupled with Whiteley's dark crooning vocals, paint a perfect picture for the complex themes the band tackles, using personable imagery and relatable concepts as an anchor in their work.

After the explosive release of their debut single, "Reaction", 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.
With only a year 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. They have also received airplay and received regular rotation from iHeart Media and local radio stations in their home state and surrounding states alike. 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.
