Boston-based Aloud, Jen de la Osa (lead vocals / guitar), Henry Beguiristain (lead vocals / guitar), Charles Murphy (bass / backing vocals), and Frank Hegyi (drums / percussion), is a “Raw, honest, and, in the end, a damn fine rock and roll band doing it on their terms.” (Boston Phoenix) Recommended if you like Alabama Shakes, Dr. Dog, Fitz and the Tantrums, The Black Keys, and The Love Language, the quartet showcases their, “tight male/female vocals, exceptionally strong songwriting, and energy-filled performances,” (Boston Music Live) on their new album It’s Got To Be Now. Rocking major venues like Paradise Rock Club (Boston), Mercury Lounge (NYC), The Double Door (Chicago), and Exit/In (Nashville), Aloud is always a crowd favorite. Aloud has shared the stage with Lake Street Dive, Cage the Elephant, Alpha Rev, and Hunter Valentine. Aloud’s music has been featured on MTV, ESPN, NPR, and The Huffington Post.
When Particles Collide
Since forming in 2010, When Particles Collide has self-released five sets of recordings: a six song demo, a four song EP, a ten song full length, a five song EP and a nine song full length. Their most recent recording, Photoelectric (June 2014) was released both digitally, on CD and on special limited edition pink vinyl. The award-winning music of When Particles Collide includes Southern Rock choruses, New Wave a la Blondie vocals, lightning speed Green Day-esque drumming, classic Motown grooves and Queens of the Stone Age-style riffs — and yet somehow it all sounds like Chris and Sasha. They tour the US extensively and during 2012, 2013 and 2014 averaged between 70-95 shows per year. During the summer of 2014 they completed a marathon 8 week, coast to coast tour of the entire US.
OldJack is a group of circumstance. While recording other bands, Lead singer/songwriter Dan “GoodWood” Nicklin would find himself requesting his clients and musician friends to help make a studio record. In the Winter of 2008 a show was offered and OldJack took its first line up. While the members have changed and the band has grown in numbers (they currently bring 8-9 people to the stage) the band is still developing it’s soul/rock sound. With two guitars, bass, drums, organ/keys, three female background singers, and a front man from yesterday, OldJack belts out their original material with lots of harmonies, big vocals, and guitar solos galore.
Cold Blood Club
Cold Blood Club, a magnetic new outfit out of Brooklyn, debuted their edgy blend of soul, rock and pop in the spring of 2011 with their debut EP “Headlines and Firefights,” which CMJ described as a “fist-pumping ode to a party at the end of the world.” Inspired by acts like LCD Soundsystem, Metric and New Order, songwriter/vocalist /guitarist Tom Stuart started the studio project that quickly evolved into the well-matched 7-piece showstopper they are today. They’ve been chewing up the New York indie scene one packed venue at a time ever since, including supporting acts like Future Bible Heroes, The Hounds Below and Har Mar Superstar. Their first single, the dangerously catchy “White Boyz” was picked up by W Hotels as a soundtrack for behind-the-scenes coverage of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2012. The band’s music can be heard on Esquire Network’s “How I Like It”, “Surfing 28 States India”, and the recently released Andrew Lau / Martin Scorsese film “Revenge of The Green Dragons.”
