Natural Born Leaders
Natural Born Leaders
With a sound that floats seamlessly between rock, reggae, jazz, hip-hop [and] funk"" (Live Music Daily), Natural Born Leaders aim to bring a fresh groove to America's soundscape. The Asheville, NC based quintet is comprised of charismatic frontman and lead vocalist Michael Martinez, keepers of the beat James Eddington (bass) and Kevin Murtha (drums), Rex Shaffer (guitar), and Ben Survant (saxophone).

In June of 2018, Natural Born Leaders were among a handful of top submissions for NPR Music's Tiny Desk song competition. As a result, they were recognized by Weekend Edition's Scott Simon in a nationally syndicated feature interview. While this ""big break"" has helped propel the group forward, it is their consistent dedication to the grind that is proving fruitful. Monthly tour runs throughout the year and a steady growth of media appearances have made Natural Born Leaders a widespread crowd-favorite. With a magnetic beat and solid rhyme, it's hard not to groove along with every song.

Following the enthusiastic reception of their debut EP, 'About Time', Natural Born Leaders are headed for the studio to lay down a handful of new tunes, slated for a grande reveal in the spring of 2019.
Upright Man
Upright Man
New York City-based rock band Upright Man is Aidan Dolan (guitar/vocals), Nick Katz (bass/vocals) and Max Yassky (drums/percussion/background vocals). The group met while studying classical music composition at New York University where they played together on various projects ranging from classical ensembles to rock bands. Their strong writing chemistry spurred the formation of Upright Man. Combining elements of alternative, psychedelic, roots rock and classic rock with complex harmonies and time signatures, the band seamlessly intertwines influences like Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Crowded House, Little Feat, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin and XTC into a unique sound all their own. Upright Man’s dynamic self-titled debut is due out August 18th, 2017.
