As of recent ZT has completed and released their 3rd EP entitled “Great White Buffalo”, and in early 2017 ZT has completed writing/recording/mixing/and mastering a full length concept album(set for release on June 24th 2017). Recording of the album took place at Oranjudio studios with owner/producer/and head engineer-Joey Gurwin. Also in 2017 Zoo Trippin played Express Live for the first time(and headlined the Newport Music Hall for their first time the very same week), started production on a year long high end documentary, booked a slew of festivals and prime shows in multiple cities, and played with acts like Devin The Dude, Local Natives, Deep Valley, Run River North, The People’s Blues of Richmond, Tropidelic, Broccili Samuria and many more!
With new members, new songs, an unparalleled live show, and a fresh style all their own-Zoo Trippin’ will soon span the airwaves and rock the continents!
Brave The Sea started out in 2015 as A Pirate’s Life. As APL, the band quickly started learning covers and writing originals for upcoming shows.
Over the following months, APL played some local shows and released their EP featuring seven of their originals.
After that, things really picked up pace when they started playing more shows and writing more tunes. After a slight lineup change, the band began to shift its focus toward a broader image and range of music. So, despite the efforts of Facebook, they set out to change their name to Brave The Sea and reestablish themselves with a more serious (ish) focus.
In 2017 the band built up a lot of momentum. It saw the release of their first album “A Pirates Life”, which has taken off on Spotify, and also get invited to play their first large festival, Summerfest, which was a blast.
While Brave The Sea still carries on the antics of their A Pirate’s Life days, the band has grown a lot musically and internally. They are setting sail to take over the world, one sea at a time!
Black Coffee formed in early 2017 after singer|bassist, Ehab Omran, and guitarist, Justin Young, met. Within the first few days these two artists began songwriting and the chemistry was overwhelmingly apparent. After recruiting drummer, Tommy McCullough, the band and it’s music began to take shape and evolve.
Black Coffee combines superb musicianship with a high energy performance that is refreshingly both vintage and ground-breaking. This three piece collaboration takes inspiration from classic rock bands of the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s, and fuses it with the root music of blues and rock n’ roll from the 40’s and 50’s. Dedicated to re-inventing modern rock music, Black Coffee parts the proverbial sea for the next generation of artists.
