Rocky Burning is alive with ambition. This is a point made readily apparent every time he takes the stage. Rocky has come to his current state of being by traversing a gamut of rock and roll pitfalls and coming out the other side unscathed. He cut his teeth fronting the psychedelic hard rock band "Amongst the Monks" for several years as they churned out their freshman and sophomore records. They recorded in New York City and toured around eastern U.S. Now Rocky has moved upward and onward recording his 5 song EP "drinking champagne in public" which he has released under his own name. This work is definitively anthemic blues rock taken to the nth degree. It's a classic revival blended with some mod tones and lyrics. The endless hooks attack like ebola and are nearly as difficult to get away from. Listen to the record, watch Rocky perform and your inner rock 'n' roll addict will thank you.
SHE’S A SPY is an upstate New York hailing indie-pop band. Formed in 2016, their infectious sound has already begun to spread, drawing in a small (but growing) dedicated fan-base. Soon after releasing a self-titled debut EP, their song “Under The Streetlights” was chosen as a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition (2016). Off the same EP, “Everything I Do” was chosen to be on the Top Ten list for Taxi Music (May 2017). Remaining a self-produced band, SHE’S A SPY embodies authenticity from their fresh synth-based songs to their energetic rocked-up live shows. SHE’S A SPY comprises of Brenna Swanger (Lead Vocals, Synth, Guitar), Andy Weaver (Bass, Guitar), Jake McKinney (Drums, Vocals), and Nate Roszel (Lead Guitar, Vocals). All songs are written by Brenna Swanger and produced by Andy Weaver and Brenna Swanger. SHE’S A SPY has released two EP’s; “SHE’S A SPY” and “small town : part one”. Their influences include The 1975, Walk The Moon, Carly Rae Jepsen, and M83.
