PONCÉ
PONCÉ
PONCÉ is a rock duo based in Nashville, TN consisting of twin brothers, Carson and Michael Poncé. When they're not writing heart-lifting melodies and harmonies, the twins like to spend their time watching Indianapolis Colts football and bickering over who's turn it is to drive to Kroger.
The Soul Shakers
The Soul Shakers
When Elias Paul Reidy (formerly of The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus) and Brett Hellings formed The Soul Shakers after a chance meeting outside of a club on the Sunset Strip, they had one single goal in mind - to bring good ole-fashioned, ass-shaking rock ‘n’ roll back into the forefront.

After two years of writing in Los Angeles and then a move to Nashville, Hellings and Reidy were ready to lay down the tracks for their forthcoming full LP. The two flew to Philadelphia to record at Soundmine Recording Studios with producer Dan Malsch (Motionless in White, Tantric, Framing Hanley), featuring Chuck Treece from Bad Brains on drums. The result is a culmination of the diverse lives they’ve led and experiences they’ve had along the way.

The Soul Shakers are one of those bands that seemingly have come out of nowhere. In an age, where the lines of music are blurred and everything is automatically defined by genre/sub-genre, comparison or cornered into a media-contrived box, make no mistake - The Souls Shakers personify what true rock ‘n’ roll is. Their repertoire and live shows are guaranteed to shake your very soul and strike a nerve, regardless of your musical tastes.

The band chose the track “Here To Have A Good Time” as their debut video, which was shot in and about their old Los Angeles stomping grounds with director Shane Drake (The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Taylor Swift, Panic! At the Disco) and is set to debut September 28, 2016 on Revolver.com.

J.Marco
Long before moving to Nashville and kicking off his songwriting career, J. Marco listened to records in his Massachusetts bedroom, moving between the fast-moving fuzz of punk-rock and the hard-hitting hooks of pop music. Years later, he combines both of those genres on Myth, his debut release as a solo artist.

Inspired by a range of influences — including the Strokes, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, and seminal book The Hero with a Thousand Faces by mythologist Joseph Campbell — Myth finds J. Marco pulling triple-duty as singer, songwriter, and lead guitarist. He covers a good deal of ground along the way, from the synth-pop of the album's propulsive single, "The Void" to the anthemic rock & roll of "Long Way Down" "Stranger in the Night" & "Castaway.” Gluing the entire album together is an emphasis on guitar riffs and undeniable melodies, the same two ingredients that connected most of Marco's childhood influences.

"I still listen to a lot of garage rock, but I've always loved a good pop hook," he says. "I wanted to bridge those two things. Myth has some fast tempos and fuzzy guitars, but it still has pop elements, too. I wanted it to be relatable."

A former member of the Nashville-based band New City Savages, Marco began singing after the group's former frontman left the lineup, leaving an open spot in front of the microphone. Marco filled the vacancy, but he continued writing his own songs on the side, too, building up a catalog of music whose epic, electric sweep didn't exactly suit his band's sound. With Myth, he steps into his new solo career with confidence, steering each song into a place where guitar fuzz, melodic hooks, high-speed percussion, mythology, and real life all crash together.
