ONOFF are a 3 piece Rock n Roll band hailing from Ireland who are currently based in California. The band have been touring up and down the west coast of the U.S while recording their new album at Tone Freq. in San Jose, California which is set for release later in the year and will be backed up with the guys touring the West Coast of America. This is the first time ONOFF have recorded in the U.S and with the album being mixed and mastered in the infamous District Studios in San Jose, they are extremely proud of their best material to date.One of their highest accolades so far was their successful debut European album "Don't Take Our Word For It" which saw them on the cover of major music magazines across Europe. The release was supported by 12 Headline tours of Europe including shows in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, England, France and a bunch of summer European Festival Tours. The album was received unanimously well across the European media with rave reviews right across the board. Their powerful catchy songs, along with their intense live shows show why these tours were a huge success. When they returned home to Ireland, ONOFF were awarded the title of "Best Unsigned Irish Band" in a public vote by leading Irish music magazine HOTPRESS.After selling all of their equipment in Ireland and moving to California in Spring 2013, things have gained serious momentum for the guys. With two performances at NAMM 2015, ONOFF have secured endorsement deals with some of the biggest names in the business. Gretcsh Guitars, Ernie Ball Strings, TV Jones Pickups, Sperzel Locking Tuners, Orange Amps, MJC Ironworks, TRX Cymbals, Silverfox Drumsticks and Kansas City Drum Company all backing the guys. Paulie was added to the Gretsch wall of fame at NAMM 2015 and also included in the Gretsch Guitars 2015 Catalog. ONOFF have fined tuned their awesome live show to prove they can be up there with the best!!In the summer 2015 the band put out a request to their Californian fans, which was met with over whelming enthusiasm to star in a video for their up coming single " Waiting on you". With fans and fellow musicians solely starring in the video. This once again proves the admiration for the band from fans and musicians alike. The video will coincide with the radio release of the single in September this year and is being backed by the biggest radio stations in California. With so much interest over the video, the guys are sure to add to their already stagerring 250,000 views on Youtube. The band will embark on a 2 month headline tour of Northern California to back the release up while stopping at all the major radio stations in between, so be sure to listen to out to 107.7 The Bone, 98 Rock, V103 Rock, KFOG and pretty much any other station playing new music over the next few weeks.

Electric Six incorporates a variety of styles, resulting in being termed a "genre-blurring" band. The group's sound has been described as a synthesis of "disco, synth pop, glam, and arena rock, including the falsetto vocals of disco, laden with "rampant solos, be they guitar riffs, synth wails, or strutting drums" that enforce the band's "energetic sound. However, the band members themselves have rejected such genre classifications as "disco-metal" and "disco-punk."

Critics have termed their lyrics as "disaffected, angry, ironic and lustful", expressing "macho flippancy" and "tongue-in-cheek pomposity". Dick Valentine has estimated that "90 percent of our songs, maybe even higher than 90 percent" are "about absolutely nothing. Songs by Electric Six are often concerned with subjects such as human sexual behavior, masculinity, dancing, hypersexuality, fast food and fire (The band's official biography states that their debut album Fire was so named because they "noticed an abundance of the word fire on this record and...decided to go with it. Lead singer Dick Valentine had commented on the aforementioned lyrical tendencies in song content with regards to the band's third album:

 [...] for the first time, none of the songs have the word "dance" or variation of "dance" in the title. But fear not. We have songs with "drugs" and "girls" and "tonight" and "night" and "louder" and "party" in the title, so we haven't given up on our philosophy just yet.

I AM MORBID, the new band featuring former MORBID ANGEL members David Vincent (vocals, bass) and Tim Yeung (drums) alongside guitarists Bill Hudson(CIRCLE II CIRCLE, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA) and Ira Black (METAL CHURCH, LIZZY BORDEN).

I AM MORBID, which plays material from MORBID ANGEL's "Altars Of Madness" (1989), "Blessed Are The Sick" (1991), "Covenant" (1993) and "Domination" (1995) albums, will perform five shows in Russia in late May, followed by fourteen dates in the rest of Europe. The tour, which is presented by The Flaming Arts Agency, will feature NECROPHAGIA as direct support.

Vincent recently told Ghost Cult about I AM MORBID: "It's been discussed off and on for a few years now, but, as they say, actions speak louder than words. While it was exciting to discuss, it was held off for a few years until I decided to go through some personal changes in my life, and really absorb the possibility of it happening. I went ahead and focused on my roots music, but this kept lingering, and now it's time for I AM MORBID to finally happen."

Regarding the I AM MORBID setlist, Vincent said: "Like everything I do, I want to make this special. This is very different from MORBID ANGEL. If you want to see a MORBID ANGELshow, you know where to go, but this isn't it. I'm only going to be performing songs that I wrote on this tour. If I didn't write it, we aren't playing it. We are going to throw in things, here or there, to make things more unique, but it's going to be one brutal show. I can promise you that."

Few musicians can claim "on-the roadisms" the way Chris Chandler can. He is a true veteran of the road, traveling across The United States of Generica for many years. His anthology of road tales transforms into a flock of doves beneath the musical high-wire act.

He has worked with everyone from Allen Ginsberg to Ani DiFranco and Pete Seeger to Mojo Nixon. Utah Phillips says, "Chris Chandler is the best performance poet I have ever seen."

Originally from Stone Mountain, Georgia the son of a Baptist minister, Chris has been on or around the stage his whole life. As a teen-ager he was in the bars and on the road working as a roadie for bands like the Georgia Satellites. He graduated from the North Carolina School of the Performing Arts in 1988. That summer - which was supposed to be a "summer away from college" he hit the road as a street performer to fund his way to audition as a lighting designer in Theaters across America. He actually landed a job on Broadway no-less but turned it down to become a performer in his own right. He has been on the road ever since.

For the first few years he was living in his car and stopping in every town from Bangor to San Ysidro where he opened his guitar case and waxed the manifesto electric sporting a sign that read "Stranded Musician Needs Gas Out of Town." Eventually he hooked up with a group of performers busking in Harvard Square where he joined a commune of other traveling street musicians. These nomadic experiences naturally fed him into the world of activism. Since then he has performed at thousands of festivals, colleges, and bar rooms across the US and Canada.

Fernando Viciconte-the 2016 Oregon Music Hall of Famer with twenty years of local and national acclaim under his belt-crawls from the wreckage of the recent past unbowed, bruised but unbroken. He has survived major surgery for a throat condition and thus what could have been existential silence for 'that voice'. It's a voice that caused countless rags like Billboard, Magnet, Paste, The Oregonian, No Depression (and on and on) plus fellow musicians like Peter Buck from REM, Don Dixon, and Steve Wynn to rave wildly about the feeling it evokes when he's singing his songs of dark despair and faint hope. These rock n roll laments, in both Spanish and English have captured the imaginations of his hometown for seven records, countless compilations, and memorable shows. Now Fernando-and 'that voice' -has emerged stronger than ever with a full-length LP entitled "Leave the Radio On", produced with Luther Russell (Fever the Ghost, Richmond Fontaine) & Mike Coykendall (M.Ward, She and Him) and led off by his first 45 release ever, "The Dogs b/w "Donna (The Pride Of Topeka)' as well as several major upcoming tours. The new album features a virtual who's who of Portland's finest musicians, including Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey of REM and members of M.Ward, Elliott Smith, Richmond Fontaine and The Delines. This is a new chapter in Viciconte's ever-evolving musical trajectory, a career marked by creative integrity and an almost painful honesty which attracts fans from high and low that still believe in the redemptive power of rock and roll. And 'that voice'.

The Creston Line is a band from Atascadero, CA formed by singer/songwriter Jon Bartel in 2015. The band released a debut EP, "Great Depression" on Twang N Bang Records in August of 2016. A follow-up full-length album, "​Vagabonds," was released on October 6, 2017. The Creston Line can best be described as "Twang Pollution Music," a genre-descriptor derived from an insult hurled at them by a disgruntled audience member.
