Golden Youth is a California band of singer/songwriters Stephanie Lauren & Kyle Monroe. After asking the band whats the most important aspect of the band I received a appropriate response. "The process of writing and recording is equally important to us as the final outcome. We both enjoy the journey just as much as the goal and I think that's why we go to such great lengths to make sure we are writing and recording the way we do. I hope that nothing becomes routine in the way we do things..." explains Kyle Monroe. "Its rare that every band member is on the exact same page, and I think thats why Stephanie and I work together so easily."

Buckeye Knoll emerged from months spent backpacking in the wilderness of California. Songwriter Doug Streblow carried with him a notebook and acoustic guitar and weaved stories into songs that would become their debut full length album "People and Place". Released in the Spring of 2010, the album received flattering praise including the SF Chronicle calling Streblow and the album "The Real Deal" and "Unforgettable". Buckeye Knoll hit the road in support of the release playing over 70 shows in a year including a 2 week tour down to SXSW 2011 in Austin, TX.

This Fall the band, rounded out by bassist Graham Rolak and guitarist Alex Nitta is heading up to a 300 acre ranch near Yosemite to set up a studio in a large remote cabin to create the follow up record to "People and Place". Engineer and longtime friend of the band, Cian Riordan (Taking Back Sunday, John Cragie, Man/Miracle) will be taking on the role of producer and Eric Valentine (All American Rejects, Nickel Creek, Third Eye Blind) is set to master.

The yet to be titled second full length album will be released in the Summer of 2012 accompanied by a full US tour including another stop at the SXSW festival in Austin.

Morgan Manifacier
Manifacier is a singer-songwriter who grew up in the small-town brushes of southern France, learning piano and guitar from a young age; he taught himself the subtle beauty of music, which he now combines with a modern approach to song-making to release 'Grande'.

From France he moved to California where he met, supported and joined a community of local musicians, with whom he could expand his ideas of song-writing and begin to form the tracks that would eventually become a collection of songs that slowly burn into a fire-pit of sensational melodies. The delicacy of Manifacier's material was partly down to inspiration, party to environment, many of the songs being born and developed in coffee shops across The Valley, where he would woo crowds in two languages through his yielding, mournful voice and unconditional passion.

His first EP, 'The Seed Became A Tree', was recorded at the Modesto Sound Studio in California with the help of local Californian artists, and went on to receive high praise from tastemaker press across France, bringing him to the attention of Tape Club Records in the UK.
