Old News, was produced by Mike Coykendall (M. Ward, Blitzen Trapper, She and Him, Bright Eyes) and features guest appearances by Robert Burger (Iron and Wine), Jay Cobb Anderson (Fruition) and Buddy Weeks (Sallie Ford). Old News combines groovy rock beats with traditional folk influences, mixing modern sounds with meaningful messages.
As touring progressed and the sound continued evolving from soft and folky to rock 'n rolling without losing sight of where he had started, a lineup solidified and Ty-Alex was formed in the winter of 2016. A modern-indie rock outfit with folk roots, Ty-Alex is Tommy Alexander, Adam Witkowski, Ian Wade, and Django Koenig.
The sound has been over and over again hailed unique and hard to pinpoint. Praised as infectious across the board, the music is palatable, powerful, and honest.
Ty-Alex released their debut EP, 'Lets Do This' in June of 2017.
Happy Abandon (Chapel Hill / Carrboro NC)
«As a dynamic first statement, 'Heavy Lines' makes a case that Happy Abandon could break through to the big stages its idols occupy»
— Spencer Griffith, Indy Week
«If I had to pick one North Carolina band that I think could have a breakout year in 2016, it would be Happy Abandon.»
— James Willamor, Croquet Records
«With traces of Mumford & Sons and Noah and the Whale, the five tracks blend orchestral touches and shoegaze influences into an EP that builds sonic goodness with each note. The band unleash strong songs, ethereal vibes and well crafted musical lines that mark a super strong debut.»
— Ric Gordon, Floorshime Zipper Boots + Russian Winter Records
The Cabin Project
The Cabin Project is an orchestral indie pop band from the Portland whose sound stems from anthemic choruses, three-part harmonies, octave pedals, and string sections. The songs are musically expansive, yet retain an intimacy similar to that of The National, Bon Iver, Feist, and Warpaint.
Born in an attic studio lined with Douglas Fir, the band started as a project of Katie Sawicki, a former-folksinger from Brooklyn who became inspired by electric guitars, keys, synthesizers, and balancing all three onstage. After moving to the Pacific Northwest in 2008, Sawicki sought out musicians to collaborate with, leading her to musical partners Zanny Geffel, an orchestral drummer, rooted in jazz and percussion, with a preponderance for poetry and onstage mayhem and Rebekah Hanson, a PhD in viola recently turned onto delay and effects pedals, creating the band’s strings and bass section.
The Cabin Project released their second album, Heliotrope, this last October. The album came together after passing demos back and forth between coasts and collaborating with a variety of talented musicians from all over the country. The Cabin Project has worked hard to build the community of influences and collaborations that surround Heliotrope, and what results is a culminated sound that chimes earnest, reverent, and full of warmth. Their newest release, Sine, is an EP of songs taking the band’s indie rock sound to the next level. Currently, the band is recording their third full-length album, due to be released in Spring of 2016.
