Droneyard
Droneyard
Droneyard is an indie rock from the east bay that sounds like 1966 and 1991 had a baby that time traveled to the 22nd century. Melodic punk/pop with hooks, feedback, and three-part harmonies.
Plasticsoul
Plasticsoul
Peacock Swagger picked as #1 album of 2009 at powerpopaholic.com and absolutepowerpop.com
The Well Wishers
The Well Wishers
Trip Wire
Trip Wire
The two founding members of Trip Wire are Marty Schneider and Bill Hunt. Through several lineup changes they have stayed together via a shared love of harmony and indie pop song craft. The strength of their material allowed them to replace their sorely missed rhythm section on their first two records with standout players Stu Shader on drums and Jeff Shelton on bass.

“His Potential is limitless.” ~Powerpopaholic

Originally from Minneapolis, Gagner began his musical career as a drummer soaking up local favorites Hüsker Dü, The Replacements, and The Jayhawks. He moved to San Francisco, traded his drum sticks for an acoustic guitar, and began writing. From the start, his songs were rhythmically sophisticated and melodically mature, with hooks both surprising and inevitable. An obsession with home recording quickly developed, and he soon found himself spending every night hunched over a cheap four-track cassette recorder. Several years and several hundred songs later, Gagner was ready to polish the best tracks for his debut, 2011's acclaimed Rhapsody in Blonde. Now comes Gagner's second LP, Rise & Shine. Recorded live to 2" tape, this melodic and emotionally direct set of songs was born out of a love for 1970's singer-songwritersand pre-WWII standards alike. Recommended for fans of Ron Sexsmith, Nick Lowe, and Harry Nilsson. Guests include Ken Stringfellow (Posies, Big Star, REM). On this special occasion, Gagner and longtime collaborator Arnie Kim will do an intimate acoustic run through of the entire album, plus fan favorites.
