Parmalee

From this tiny town that’s home to a gas station, two blinking yellow lights, and a small tin- roofed barn dubbed Studio B, country rockers Parmalee launched their long journey to Nashville. The near-fatal robbery Parmalee experienced after a show would have destroyed most bands. But brothers Matt and Scott Thomas, cousin Barry Knox and longtime friend Josh McSwain didn’t call it quits. Instead it reinforced their intense motivation and dedication to one another and to their determination to succeed.

Wayland

Over the last few years the genre of rock has been pulled in so many different directions, leaving timeless vocal melodies and guitars to become far and few between. Wayland naturally possesses these qualities and more. Formed in 2010, The band was soon signed to Kiefer Sutherland’s Iron Works Records by hit singer/ song writer/ producer Jude Cole. Managed by Jesse James Dupree, Wayland released their first single “Welcome To My Head” which experienced high ranking on Mainstream and Active Rock charts. The follow up charting single “Reno” began to showcase Wayland’s diverse influences, from huge vocal harmony reminiscent of classic rock icons like Journey and Queen, and thick crunchy guitar riffs and pounding drums leaning on the hard rock side of the spectrum. With the release of 2014’s “Get A Little” the band’s music video for the song went viral online bringing in massive social media and YouTube numbers, causing the song to hit #6 on ITunes Rock charts. 2016 brought the Active Rock radio hit single “Bloody Sunrise” taking the band into almost 5 straight years of non-stop touring, boasting 250+ shows a year. There’s no signs of Wayland slowing down any time soon. Their new album “Rinse & Repeat” is due Sep 22nd, 2017. Their current single, “Through The Fire” has reached #35 on Billboard Mainstream Rock Charts

At Orenda Fugue’s core is Sean Hanson’s idiosyncratic songwriting. In coercion with the other members, Orenda Fugue strives to compose vocally driven originals encompassing thick, atmospheric guitar riffs and tones (Sean and Dan) and a rhythm section comprised of Alex Vang and Ben Peterson. We strive to distinguish ourselves from generic, standard structures of modern rock music while incorporating our own flavors of resigned dynamics and vocal harmonization.
