Leopold & His Fiction
Leopold & His Fiction
Naked, stripped down and aching with adrenaline is the rawness of Leopold and his Fiction. Led by Detroit native Daniel James (lead vocal/guitar), their essential make up sprouted from collaborations made on the road in the whirlwind cycle of touring. From San Francisco to LA to Austin various musical adventures had come and gone, until James found a common vision in the musicians he'd met along the way. Originally formed as an outlet for Daniel James to exercise his virtues gained from years in Detroit, the seminal force of Leopold and his Fiction is the catalyst for soul-drenched, bare-bones rock 'n' roll that shakes with the power of '73-era Stooges while seducing with the rhythm and blues of Motown. James balanced this raw, naïve energy by becoming a founding member of alt-country folk rock act Cowboy and Indian, enjoying a successful run playing festivals, including Austin City Limits, and recording a full-length album.

The next Leopold and his Fiction album promises a full pallet of artistry from America's deep, dark underbelly and rootsy fabric to a revival of an Rn'B-tinged, backwoods charm. It goes back to the days when Motown and Stax loaded singles with a hip-shaking groove on the A-side and a ballad in 6/8 on the B-side that could be crooned under the moonlight.

Wild Adriatic
Calling to mind the soulful, dynamic sounds of 70s giants such as Led Zeppelin, Humble Pie, and Free's early years, Wild Adriatic has won early acclaim from places such as Rolling Stone, USA Today, Relix, American Songwriter, and Guitar World. The debut album Big Suspicious was released in January 2014 and the band has since stayed on the road in support of the effort, logging an impressive 175 live shows in 2014 alone. From headlining blues festivals in Connecticut for a crowd of 10,000 people to a five week European headlining tour to serving as direct support for an impressive list of rock and roll royalty including Grand Funk Railroad, Robert Randolph, Blues Traveler, and many more... Wild Adriatic is a high energy, riffy power trio to rival any you've seen before.The band has built a strong following off of a relentless tour schedule and a powerhouse live show, spending 225+ days on the road and making noteworthy appearances at festivals like SXSW, moe.down, Gathering of the Vibes, and CMJ.
Robbery Inc.
Robb Torres, front-man of Robbery Inc, has always been about testing his diverse limits. The accomplished guitarist, and former member of the alt-rock band TRAPT, draws from his varied sonic roots while continually evolving as he moves to the front of the stage. Torres was ready for something that would test his limits not only as a songwriter and guitarist, but also a lyricist and singer.

Enter: Robbery Inc.

Lending lead guitar and vocals for the first time in his new project, Robbery, Inc., Torres is excited to let his brand of blues infused rock speak for itself on the group's debut release: The Crave EP. Torres, along with Liam McCormack on bass and Matt Camgros on drums, deliver a straightforward rock punch that brings out a certain head-nodding, air-guitaring response elicited by only the best in music that connects to the listener.

Rock is alive and well, and Robbery Inc is solid proof.
