Two and a half years after their first session, Scary Pockets have released over 150 videos that have been watched over 60 million times on YouTube. They've collaborated with Darren Criss, Larry Goldings, Casey Abrams, India Carney, Kenton Chen, Mario Jose, Bruno Major, Reeve Carney, Derek Hough, Theo Katzman, Bill Wurtz, and dozens more in a relentless attempt to make familiar songs better - or at least different!
Helmet is celebrating their 30th anniversary this year and plans to mark the occasion by performing a 30 song set each night. They will be playing songs from across their catalogue of eight critically acclaimed studio albums, as well as rarities from older EP's and singles - with the possibility of a few covers mixed in for good measure. There will be no opening acts on any of the shows.
Founder and frontman Page Hamilton reflected on the occasion: "The day John, Peter and I auditioned Henry is the day I consider to be the beginning of Helmet. The year was 1989 and I think the month was May. I love playing this music more than ever with my current bandmates, Kyle, Dan and Dave. To celebrate 30 years of recording and touring we decided to play 30 songs a night in 30 cities in Europe and 30 more cities in the USA. We hope to see you all there."
Helmet was formed in New York City in 1989 by founding members Page Hamilton, Henry Bogdan, Peter Mengede and John Stanier. The group signed to Amphetamine Reptile Records and released their first full-length album, Strap It On, in 1991. A year later, they signed to Interscope Records.
The band found mainstream success with their Interscope debut, Meantime, which debuted at number 68 on the Billboard 200 and spawned the hits "Unsung" and "In the Meantime." In 1994, Helmet explored new sonic territories with the fan favorite and critically acclaimed Betty, which incorporated elements of jazz and blues into their "thinking man's metal." Following an additional album, Helmet broke up in 1998, while Hamilton explored other projects, including various collaborations and film scores.
In 2004, Hamilton reformed Helmet with a new lineup, releasing the album Size Matters that same year. In 2006, they released Monochrome on Warcone records and then released their most recent album, Seeing Eye Dog, via Work Song in 2010.
Since the 2004 revival, Helmet has toured extensively all over the world. In 2012, they toured Europe in light of the 20th anniversary of Meantime and, most recently, embarked on a similar tour for the 20th anniversary of Betty.

Shawn James launched his career with his first full length album “Shadows” and since then he hasn’t stopped. He’s constantly on the road averaging 175 shows per year. He’s toured extensively across Europe and the United States headlining sold out shows and independently building his loyal faithful fan base.
Along with Shawn’s extensive roadwork, his songs have been featured on network and cable TV shows (CBS, HBO) and in Sony Playstation’s blockbuster game “The Last of Us 2”.

Check back on his socials for updates and new releases.
David James and Big River are often described as one of the most authentic Outlaw Country tribute shows touring today. Thousands of fans agree with those reviews, as they routinely sell out shows in venues large and small across Canada and the U.S. From the way James holds his guitar to the way he talks to his audience, the legendary musicians live again when James steps to the mike and says, "Hello - I'm almost Johnny Cash," or plays that classic leather-bound Telecaster guitar like Waylon.
The professionalism on and off the stage is a testament to the memory of Cash and Waylon that fans have come to expect from David James and Big River. The extensive catalog of songs from Cash like Folsom Prison, Boy named Sue and Ring of Fire and Waylon's mega hits like Luckenback Texas, Good hearted woman and Mammas don't let your baby's grow up to be cowboys, attracts audiences young and old alike to relive the music of these great country icons.
"It's not only about the voice," James said. "It's about living and breathing the men - their postures, their mannerisms, their moves and quirks. I want our audiences to go home feeling like they observed the men themselves."
James is succeeding
Eve 6--which includes vocalist/bassist Max Collins guitarist Jon Siebels and drummer Ben Hilzinger (replacing Tony Fagenson who left the band in Feb. of 2018) --formed in Southern California in 1995 while the trio were just teenagers, then inked a deal with RCA Records before they'd finished high school. The band issued the self-titled Eve 6 in 1998, attaining platinum success with hit singles "Inside Out" and "Leech," the former capturing the #1 spot on the Modern Rock charts and crossing over successfully to Top 40 radio. More widespread recognition came with gold-selling sophomore effort Horrorscope (2000), which spawned radio gems "Promise," "On The Roof Again" and the ubiquitous prom and MTV anthem "Here's To The Night".
It seemed like Eve 6 were everywhere--the band made appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night With Conan O'Brien, and TRL with Carson Daly, with their videos in constant rotation on MTV. The band then released the more experimental It's All In Your Head in 2003, featuring singles "Think Twice" and "At Least We're Dreaming,". 2012 saw the release of Speak In Code on Fearless records with top 20 Alternative single "Victoria" and fan favorite "Curtain".
Since their debut Eve 6 has inspired a generation of bands and been named one of the 90's defining rock acts. 2018 brings the band full-circle to where it all started with the 20th anniversary of their debut self-titled record Eve 6. This fall the band will celebrate the release that made them a household name with a tour in which they'll be performing the album in it's entirety.
"It's surreal that a record we made when we were teenagers is worthy of an anniversary tour two decades later," Collins says. "When I hear those songs in certain ways I hear kids singing about kid stuff but there's also a universality to the feelings and experiences. I mean you don't stop getting your heart broken when you reach your twenties. And the feelings of adolescent disillusionment and angst differ from those of an adult in pretty subtle ways. This is the record that gave us everything. Shot us into that infinitesimal percentage of bands that get to have a couple songs in the public consciousness. We are grateful to be here and very excited to be playing album 1 front to back for the first time ever."
