Sleep On It: Music is about connecting with people, and that's what we focus on more than anything else. We're a band that expresses honesty, and individuality in our music, drawing inspirations from bands such as Yellowcard, Saves The Day, Brand New, Fall Out Boy, and the collective music scenes we all grew up in from Massachusetts, Georgia, Ohio, Michigan, Maine, and Illinois. Our collective influences allow us to create music that has it's own distinct sound. We combine a high energy live show with lyrics that resonate with the experiences of our fans.
“When people ask what kind of music I play…I don’t really know what to say. All I can really say is that the desert is integral to my sound.”
So says Brandon Decker. Since 2009, the Sedona, AZ based songwriter has written, produced and released a trove of mesmerizing music; an expansive palette of folk, gospel, rock and psychedelia recorded under the nom de plume decker.
The Orions are a Chicago based band formed in early 2014. The band got together after Federico Vargas (singer/songwriter) met Ahmed Forero (bass/ back-up vocals) playing locally at a park. The two shared a common interest in music, culture, and lifestyle. After jamming for about a year they decided to form a band and recruited Christian Ovalle (drums). After performing as a trio for a year, they met Philip Kubisz (lead guitar) after playing a gig at Chicago’s music venue Reggies.
The transatlantic pop-punk quintet As It Is hails from Brighton, UK consisting of Patty Walters (vocals), Benjamin Biss (vocals, guitar), Andy Westhead (guitar), Patrick Foley (drums), Alistair Testo (bass). The band has established a devout fan following with their heart-on-sleeve, honest and relatable lyrics, charged with pop-rock melodies. Managed by KMGMT (home of other Fearless acts such as Tonight Alive and The Summer Set), As It Is has molded their craft, steadily building their reputation as one of UK's brightest new names.
If a watched pot never boils, then there are enough eyes on Chicago's Steve Leaf & The Ex-Pats right now to support the constant simmer of their engaging, trembling tales of impending doom. Forming in 2009 and originally all hailing from Michigan, the group's self-proclaimed swirl of "Pink Floyd in bed with Radiohead" - a recipe of delicate vocals, clean yet cutting guitars and verbose lyrics that whisper about worry around every corner - could easily give in to predictable grandiosity, but it never happens.

Lila Rose has always stood out from the crowd – In substance, style and appearance, she has never been average. Born with “ultra sound sensitivity”, Lila’s experience of the world around her has been quite out of the ordinary, and very much sonically based. Lila is both blessed and afflicted with sounds that most people cannot hear; while this is a gift when it comes to making music, it can also lead to great personal discomfort at times.
