A world tour, new record, and non-stop television and festival appearances have kept 3OH!3 hot on the music radar since hitting #1 on the pop radio charts with their multi-platinum singles “Don’t Trust Me” and “Starstrukk” (ft. Katy Perry), from their album WANT. The band followed that up with their latest record “Streets Of Gold,” which featured their platinum hit first single “My First Kiss” (ft. Ke$ha). 3OH!3 continues to sell out venues around the world, recently headlining MTV’s Music & Movie Festival and performing at all the major festivals in Europe, Japan, Brazil, and Australia. 3OH!3 performed on Regis & Kelly, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, George Lopez, the CW’s Hellcats, and even American Idol with Ke$ha last spring.
Dia Frampton gained international recognition as a finalist on NBC’s “The Voice,” with 15 million people a week tuning in to see her unique interpretations of popular songs. Dia signed with Universal Republic upon completion of “The Voice” and released her solo debut, “RED,” in December 2011. The first single “The Broken Ones” debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart in the US, and caught fire internationally where she’s had three singles in the Top 10 at radio. Dia recently supported Blake Shelton and The Fray on their respective tours and on the heels of her world wide success, Entertainment Weekly named Dia one of their “Entertainers of the Year.”
The Summer Set
On their way to becoming a legend in their own right, The Summer Set has had an extraordinary trajectory since these five high school friends self-released their first album together. In just a few short years, their music has been featured on TV shows from the likes of ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars” to “Good Morning America,” have done partnerships with world renowned companies from Taco Bell to Fender, and have embarked on sold-out world tours from South America to Asia. These fine gentleman and lovely lady will make their Fearless Records debut in the summer of 2013.
Sydney, Australia’s answer to pop punk royalty, Tonight Alive, fronted by the charismatic Jenna MacDougall, is a triple threat with their explosive live show, talented songwriting, and undeniable charm. Their debut full-length album, “What Are You So Scared Of?,” which was named one of Alternative Press’ Most Anticipated Music of 2012, impressed both crowds and critics. Their many singles rocketed up the Australian radio and MTV charts which translated into a much anticipated debut in Europe and America shortly thereafter. The band has toured with some of the most respected artists of their scene, most recently playing to over 2,500 kids on the Pierce The Veil tour.
Itch, enigmatic former front man of the UK-based band The King Blues is no stranger to success. After appearing on multiple magazine covers, repeated hits at BBC radio, and routinely selling out 3,000+ tickets a night, Itch was ready for his next challenge. Teaming up with producer John Feldmann (The Used, Good Charlotte, Escape The Fate), Itch crafted a genre-busting solo record infused with rock, reggae, hip hop, and electronica. Though heavily courted by major record labels, Itch felt most at home with the creative and outside-the-box thinking of the reputable team of Red Bull Records. Look for his highly anticipated debut solo album due out next summer.
Kris Orlowski is an independent touring artist and every sync rep’s dream come true. Signed to SONGS Publishing, Kris’ music has appeared in Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, and alongside an on-camera performance on Hart of Dixie. His current album, Believer, debuted at the top of the Billboard Folk Chart. With TV and radio support growing, and national tours with the likes of Jamestown Revival, the KNDD prediction of Kris Orlowski being “…the next Seattle artist to blow up nationwide” might just come true.
Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground
Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground, featuring a full backing arrangement of strings, horns and percussion, are every music lover’s new favorite band. Self distributing their music independently, their music has been played on Seattle’s 107.7 THE END, and backed by a performance on Last Call with Carson Daly. The band toured with Damien Jurado and just released their second album titled, “Introducing…” worldwide.
Little is known about the elusive past of the one who calls himself SILAS, but much is suspected. Emerging from the streets of LA in 2011 with a handful of encrypted sonic relics, SILAS began the spread of his dominion last fall, touring the nation under the watchful guardianship of 3OH!3. Having then been courted by the overlords of the music empire to remix a smattering of artists such as Itch, The Ready Set, and The Summer Set, as well as collaborating on a track with 3OH!3 for their latest album, OMENS, SILAS spawned his next batch of sinister hymns, THE OFFERINGS EP.
With THE OFFERINGS EP, and several new remixes, slated for a summer 2013 release, what truths shall surface from the shadows of SILAS’ realm is the ringing chant on the lips of his ever-growing assemblage.
