We’re so proud to present our amazing pool of talented musicians who are creating compelling tunes and making waves in the scene.
They are the future of music…we suggest you get on board.
Billie Eilish // Meet the 15 year old American pop Star who has only just begun her
journey to fame with her breakout record, “Ocean Eyes” virtually making her an overnight
success. With the video for her single, “Bellyache”, reaching over 1 million views, an
album in the works, and an upcoming headlining tour, Billie’s time to shine is on the horizon.
DAKOTA BOTTCHER // Long time Photogenics model, musician, and most recently, slanger of rare vintage finds
(@tarantula_vintage) joined The Buttertones, a 5 piece band that are bringing back elements of rock n roll, soul, and
cow punk from every decade since the 60’s.

musical duo called Girlyboi. Their music is filled with soulful lyrical dialogue with the intentions of creating the prettiest
music anyone’s ever heard. Watch out for their new single, “Bonfire” which dropped June 29th, 2017.
Clinton Van Arnam // Classically trained drummer and producer, Clinton and LA singer/keyboardist, Melanie
deJesus, formed electronic dup @DSTNCE_, after mutual influences bringing the two together. With their upcoming
