#VATTICA is an American alternative rock band from Los Angeles, California. Formed in early 2014, the band quickly built an impressive local following in Southern California, including on the infamous Sunset Strip, performing at legendary venues such as The Viper Room, The Roxy Theatre, The Echo and The Troubadour. VATTICA’s bombastic and energetic live show caught the attention of Another Century/Century Media Records, who promptly offered the band a recording contract. VATTICA then set about refining their sound, which quickly coalesced into an arena-ready style reminiscent of alternative chart-toppers such as Muse, OneRepublic, PVRIS, Our Lady Peace and Imagine Dragons.
Next, VATTICA entered the studio to begin recording their debut album at The Mix Room in Burbank, CA with veteran producer Ben Grosse (Breaking Benjamin, Daughtry, Filter, Red, Starset, Vertical Horizon, Third Eye Blind, Thirty Seconds To Mars).
In 2017 VATTICA finished their debut album, entitled “WE SURVIVE”. At the same time, Another Century was absorbed by RED Music which ultimately resulted in VATTICA deciding to part ways with the label. VATTICA then joined forces with new management and released their first single, “REMEMBER TO BREATHE”, on their own label (Villis) in May 2018.
REMEMBER TO BREATHE premiered on ALT105.3 (KITS) (and has been added to rotation on the station’s local music show SOUNDCHECK), as well as the iTunes “Alternative Music” page. It has also made it into Spotify’s “Discover Weekly” algorithm, amassing over 60k+ plays to date. The lyric video for REMEMBER TO BREATHE received over 10k+ views on its first day.
#JaneNTheJungle is an alternative rock band from Phoenix, Arizona growing in the indie music scene with their festival performances, radio play, music video promotions, Honda commercial and an upcoming record sponsored by Ford.
Influenced by the raw power and authority of musicians like Rush, Pearl Jam, and Alanis Morissette, creating a unique sound mixing between 90's and modern rock music.
The band is best known by the profundity of their electric live performances, peeling guitar riffs, and raw emotive sound that shatters like hellfire from the throat of their female-fronted vocalist, Jordan White.
#CrimsonApple is Colby Benson, lead vocals/keyboards; Shelby Benson, guitar/vocals; Carthi Benson, bass/vocals; and Faith Benson, drums.
Since the band’s inception in 2012, Crimson Apple has shared the stage with such venerated artists as Will Champlain, Switchfoot, All Time Low, The Green, Hawaiian music legends, HAPA, and One Republic. The group’s 2015 debut album, Hello, garnered commercial airing in Hawaii, and across the internet, including earning spins on iHeartMedia and Star 101.9.
