HIRIE
HIRIE
Countless musicians receive gifts from their fans. But the relationship between Trish Jetton, front woman of the pop-reggae act Hirie, and her fans is particularly unique. Their offerings are special: lovingly curated to nurture her psyche, to stoke her self-care, her idiosyncrasies. Late last year, Trish was particularly moved when given a copy of Women Who Run With the Wolves, a book that explores feminine instinct and power. It celebrates, as she says beaming, “that wild woman archetype.”
RDGLDGRN
RDGLDGRN
RDGLDGRN (pronounced red gold green) have already distinguished themselves in the DC music scene. Their highly stylized sound (that Go Go drum beat- a distinct DC rhythm) takes hip-hop infused punk and indie rock to create something refreshingly unique, is getting attention from fans stretching far beyond the DC niche scene. 

Comprised of three members who identify as Red, Gold, and Green, RDGLDGRN began making music in their basement studio, drawing from a vast and almost ironically diverse pool of influences like Chuck Brown, Vampire Weekend, Outkast, The Neptunes, and Bad Brains.

What many might consider a wildly ambitious, even impossible task to pull off, RDGLDGRN managed to effortlessly combine genres of music to create something new, something all their own, and something that has the music industry buzzing with excitement. 

The band gained widespread recognition when they self-released a song called "I Love Lamp" on YouTube- a way for friends and local fans to listen to their music. They had no idea that within just a few weeks, the video would have over 100,000 views and the attention of many notable figures both in the industry as well as on the blogosphere. 

Producer Kevin Augunas (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Cold War Kids) quickly took notice of the band, and in addition to producing RDGLDGRN's debut, also signed them to his label, Fairfax Recordings (Gotye, Tribes) in a joint venture with Universal Republic Records. 

Upon entering the legendary Sound City Studio in Van Nuys, CA, a studio where Fleetwood Mac recorded 'Rumours' and Nirvana recorded 'Nevermind', RDGLDGRN were fortunate enough to have captured the attention of Nirvana alum, Foo Fighters front man, and hometown hero, Dave Grohl who recorded drums on the entire album. 

It wasn't just rock royalty that took notice of RDGLDGRN, the hip-hop community was also taken by the band's unique sound. Genre-bending artist, producer, and designer, Pharrell Williams (N.E.R.D., The Neptunes), co-wrote and co-produced the standout track "Doing the Most", lending his distinct style to one of the most unique tracks on the album that showcases Green's undeniable talent for rapping and singing infused with Pharrell's style of unusual beats and musical wit. 

The result is a debut that truly demonstrates the group's ability to straddle genre lines, to combine musical polarities and unite both artists and fans over music that's multifaceted.

However, it's not the musical intricacies, or the obscure combination of influences, that make RDGLDGRN who they are. It's their ability to create something entirely fresh and new, something that's often overlooked in this state of the industry where musicians try to stay afloat by following trends. If you ask RDGLDGRN who their biggest influences are, they'd tell you the Beatles and Bob Marley. And while RDGLDGRN don't exactly sound like those legendary artists, they do share in common something less tangible- they all have made it a point tocarve their own path by creating something entirely unique.
Tunnel Vision
Tunnel Vision
Tunnel Vision is quickly becoming Southern California's favorite new Surf, Reggae, Ska band. The band is comprised of five musicians who grew up in the San Diego area with instruments in their hands and skateboards and surfboards under their feet. Tunnel Vision originally formed as a three-piece band, with Hayden Hanson as the lead singer and guitarist, Jacob Hernandez on bass, and Tanner Payan on drums and additional vocals. The three have been long time friends, who grew up surfing spots like Black's, Oceanside Jetty, Trestle's, and T-street and Skateboarding iconic bowls like The Vans Combi, Encinitas YMCA, Clairemont, Carmel Valley and Oceanside's MLK Skatepark.

Growing up in SoCal, the band was heavily influenced by the Punk Rock, Reggae and Ska Music of bands like Sublime, Slightly Stoopid, NoFX, Rancid and Mad Caddies. The boys have all worked in the surf industry for years, starting out in retail for Rip Curl and moving on to manufacturing surfboards for Lost Enterprises.

Tunnel Vision recently increased the band from a three-piece to a five-piece by adding Doug Alani and Matt Risley. Matt Risely & Doug both met the guys through their connections with Lost's retail store, Catalyst. Matt is Texas surf transplant. Matt plays keys for the band and is an avid Surfer and Skateboarder as well. Doug brings his mad saxophone skills to the sound of Tunnel Vision, when he is not in the courtroom tipping the scales for justice, he is cranking out tunes with Tunnel Vision.

In 2013, Lost sent the boys down to Cabo for The Cabo San Lucas ASP Surf Contest and to perform at venues around the contest. The song tells the story about their adventure in Cabo with surf pros like Chris Ward and Mason Ho. Then to top it all off in 2014, they were offered the opportunity to caravan down to Cabo with a group of eight bands. Road tripping the San Diego to Cabo route and then finish the journey off with playing the main stage at Zipper's. Tunnel Vision was able to finish out their set in Cabo playing The Cabo Song. The whole caravan to Cabo trip and all the antics that went along with it, was filmed by a local film crew and is available on a DVD. Also in 2014, Tunnel Vision did a mini East Coast tour sidelining with surfboard shaper Matt Biolas, and Mike Reola of the Lost crew.

In 2015, Anthony Levato joined the Tunnel Vision crew and started managing the boys. Anthony connected Tunnel Vision with Tom Maxwell of Whiskey Barrel Records and together they all connected with San Diego favorite Miles, Kyle & Dela of Slightly Stoopid. Slightly Stoopid took the boyz under their wing and let them record the rest of their album at the Slightly Stoopid "The Lab" Studios in San Diego. The self titled debut album Tunnel Vision rolled out in July and is now available on ITunes and the store section of the web site.

Tunnel Vision will continue with their love of music, travel, surfing and skating with groups like Miles for Myles, Fender Charity, and Surfrider.

You can hear some of Tunnel Vision's music now on the website under The Music Tab. Make sure to sign up for their email list and follow them on Facebook and Instagram. All the summer show dates are listed on the home page.
