A rock band from New York City, Honor Society has been named a breakout band to watch by Rolling Stone Magazine and identified as a Buzzworthy band by MTV. Their 2009 debut album ‘Fashionably Late’ reached #18 on the Billboard Top 200 in its first week. In late 2011, Honor Society released their Sophomore album ‘A Tale of Risky Business Part 2′, produced by Adam Blackstone (Maroon 5, Kanye West, Eminem). Independently released on the band’s new label, Fair Isle Records, “ATORB2″ debuted on the Billboard Top 200 charts.
Teen rockers Kicking Daisies blend pop, rock and a whole lot of energy with stunning musical skills to sell out venues around the country and open for some of the biggest names in pop and indie rock. With breakout successes ranging from winning Disney’s Next Big Thing Contest and a Billboard charting single, the gifted members of Kicking Daisies — Ben Spremulli, Duran Visek, Richie Arthur and Jeff Maurer — are setting their sights on stardom.
The Narrative are a two-piece indie-pop band out of New York made up of guitarist/vocalist Jesse Gabriel and keyboardist/vocalist Suzie Zeldin. The duo is currently in the studio working on their first release since 2011′s Kickstarter EP.
Broadcast Hearts is a four-piece, alternative rock band from Trumbull, Connecticut. Formed in 2009, the group comprises Avery Bazan (lead vocals, piano), Chris Parian (backing vocals, synth), Justin Molfese (backing vocals, bass guitar), and Ted Ferik (drums). Noted for their guitar-less set, the keys-based group engages a dynamic sound and style, drawing influence from acts such as Coldplay, Keane, Jack’s Mannequin, and OneRepublic.
