Static and Surrender
Static and Surrender
Made up of members of venerable Bay Area rock bands The Trophy Fire, Pine and Battery, and Cold Hot Crash, national award-winning singer songwriter Jeff Campbell was recruited by brothers Adam & John Schuman to write and record new ideas. The result is a body of songs that all 3 were excited enough about to ask decorated Berkeley producer Jim Greer (The Rondo Brothers, Foster the People) to help them bring their ideas to life. The members’ combined careers boast multiple festival appearances, regular radio play on 3 major Bay Area radio stations, a performance on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show, onstage appearances with and support for Filter, Train, John Mayer and more. The name Static and Surrender was given to the project to symbolize the members' surrender to the static that they felt their individual careers had settled into, and their hopes that joining forces would open new doors for them collectively. The band signed to LA based Funzalo Records in late 2017, released 2 singles, and have a debut album release planned for spring 2018.
The Get Ahead
The Get Ahead
The Get Ahead is a five-piece group from Portland, OR that has evolved from retro-soul evangelism to a more mature and distinct identity. Their newest release, Mind is a Mountain, highlights their emotive and gritty roots aesthetic while hinting at soul with simmering grooves, yearning vocals, and purposeful lyrics. Produced by Grammy Award winning artist, Son Little (Mavis Staples, RJD2), the quintet mines an amalgam of classic rock, swampy blues, vintage soul, R&B and gospel in their mission to move people.
Larissa Waters
Larissa Waters
Bay Area born and raised, Larissa Waters has made her way from the back row of the choir to the backing vocal mic to the forefront of her first solo effort. "Ready to Run" finds its way through love and loss, dreams and reality; at times chilling, other times sweet. Some might hear the influence of being raised on healthy doses of Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd and BB King or her later love of artists like PJ Harvey, Feist, Patty Griffin and Fink. A patchwork of musical tastes and a natural attraction to sounds that have a certain timelessness to them, shape the songwriting and performances Larissa brings to her debut. Bolstered by the talents of long-term collaborator, Jeff Campbell (Static & Surrender, Pine & Battery), and producer/multi-instrumentalist, Gawain Matthews, "Ready to Run" is sure to sink its hooks in you.
