DINNER AND A SUIT
In a music world where genre lines are increasingly blurred, Dinner And A Suit has emerged with a sonic meld that resonates with familiarity, and captivates with distinction. Formed in New Jersey by cousins Jonathan Capeci, Joey Beretta and Anthony Genca, the trio is forging a path that reflects the band’s music itself: putting the right pieces in the right places at all the right times. Since emerging in 2009, Dinner And A Suit quickly captured attention with a captivating blend of ethereal rock and distinguished pop – leading to critical acclaim, a swelling dedication of global fans and coveted live dates that have circled the band throughout the US. The spiraling success fueled Dinner And A Suit to transplant to Nashville in late 2010, where they began work on what would become ‘Since Our Departure’ – their brand new full-length album. “We left the comforts of home to pursue this dream,” explains Capeci. “And that definitely comes through on this record.” To record Since Our Departure, the band split their time between Glow in the Dark Studios in Atlanta with producer Matt Goldman (Anberlin, Underoath), then with Tyler Orr (As Cities Burn, Copeland) at First Street Studios in Cleveland TN. The resulting work is a range of bold anthems, layered with soaring melodies that are riveting with honesty. Throughout the album’s ten towering tracks, Capeci’s lush timbre weaves universal themes of forgiveness and hope, love and loss, and discovering a place in the world. “It just poured out of us,” Genca adds. “There’s a lot of passion and energy on this record. It’s an experience that we’re sharing with the listeners in a very real way.”
Playing from the heart of their midwestern roots, Nashville’s The Decadence delivers a sound influenced by artists from Tom Petty to Ryan Adams. They also take their cues from their home states of Indiana and Kentucky, where John Mellencamp and My Morning Jacket are legend. Add in the drive of the 90’s nostalgia and you’ve got their brand of pop-rock music. The road hungry band just finished recording their debut record, So Long Stella, with engineer/producer Brian Kunitz (engineer for Kyle Cook of Matchbox 20) in July 2013.
They’re a story-telling band obsessed with pop songs who search for that ultimate musical and lyrical hook that will stick in your head long after the music is over. Like the Pettys and Dylans of old to the Rooneys and The Frays of now, The Decadence is telling their tale through music. They give their all each and every night on stage and don’t stop until the lights go up. They’re a show that sparks attention and will you have you singing along before you know it. You don’t just “watch” The Decadence perform, you experience it.
Should’ve Been Cowboys
Should’ve Been Cowboys is a four-man Indie Rock band from College Station, TX. They formed a year ago and have performed throughout the Brazos County. Over the course of 2012, they performed thirty-eight shows. Front-man Clayton Tumlinson’s beautiful vocal melodies, Taylor Maddox’s attention-grabbing lead, Nathan Garcia’s dynamic drum style, and Brenton Kim’s solid foundation, compose Should’ve Been Cowboys. This fun and high-energy band will leave audiences floored for more.
Taylor Maddox comes from a family with absolutely no musical background or talent. He started playing guitar in 7th gradewhen his mother bought him an electric guitar for his birthday. In all honestly he started playing to catch the attention of a girl at church, but thanks to that, his dream of being a life-long musician was born. He met 2 of his best friends, Nathan and Clayton, at the same church in 2005 when we were all raw musicians. Barely knowing anything, Taylor climbed on stage and fell in love with it. Letting David Gilmore and Jimmy Page be his major influences as a young musician, he fell in love with multiple genres and allowed music to take over his world.
Clayton Tumlinson grew up playing music with his older brother, Bobby, who is 6 years older than him and played the piano. Clayton got his first acoustic guitar for Christmas from his aunt and uncle when he was 11 and they’ve been jamming together ever since. Right off the bat Clayton was writing songs and playing guitar without any prior knowledge how to do so. He played at the First Assembly of God in Marble Falls, Tx every Sunday with his brother and it was then that he realized he knew he wanted to be a musician. Since then he has put everything he has had into music. Leading with passion and ending with his own blood, sweat, and tears.
Nathan Garcia was surrounded by music from a young age. With a drummer and DJ for a father, music was always there. He learned to play the drums at a young age, performing in his first talent show at the age of 9. Ever since then, drumming, and music in general, have become his passion. At the age of 17 he started learning to play the guitar and his love for music grew exponentially ever since. After moving to College Station, Texas in 2010, he began forming relationships with other musicians he had met years before. This would eventually lead to the group Should’ve Been Cowboys being formed. Since then Nathan has been teaching guitar at a studio in College Station and hopes that through this he can share his love of music with a younger generation.
Brenton Kim began playing bass in Dallas, TX. Starting at the age fourteen, his musicality has developed throughout the years. Absorbing influences from multiple genres, Brenton approaches the bass with a peculiar and distinct feel.
LUCA formed in the fall of 2013. They consist of Ross Hudgins, Josh Hooton, Jeremy Pennington, and Joshua Willis. With a wide range of genre covering material they have managed to form a sound that is fresh and new on each song but still maintains key elements that make them LUCA. Each member comes from different music backgrounds including national touring, concert performances, and solo acts. They just finished recording a small collection of demos that was released December 23rd, 2013 and have plans for an EP in the spring of 2014.
