SeepeopleS
SeepeopleS
The anti-genre indie pranksters SeepeopleS have been a band for 17 years. The band, which is the brainchild of bandleader/songwriter/producer Will Bradford, has released 5 full length albums and 2 EPs on their own imprint, RascalZRecordZ. It would be an accurate statement to say that there isn't a single band on the planet that covers as much ground musically, or traverses through as many musical universes as SeepeopleS does. Musicians have long since taken notice and members of Morphine, Spearhead, Dave Matthews Band (Tim Reynolds), and even members of Parliament/Funkadelic are featured on previous albums. All seven records were co-produced by Will Holland (Pixies, New Pornographers, Dead Can Dance) The band has toured ceaselessly, playing over 1500 shows in 46 states during their long career. Most importantly, SeepeopleS features songwriting that is the definition of timelessness and lyrically have been busy writing the most important musical anthems of our generation. It may be long after our lifetimes before this band gets their due, but they certainly will. Nothing this good can remain hidden forever.

As far as "hype" goes, the band was recently nominated for "Best Live Act" for the 2016 New England Music Awards. Other nominations include "Best New Artist" (Relix Magazine Awards 2007).The band has shared the stage and toured with such acts as Death Cab for Cutie, Franz Ferdinand, Cracker, De La Soul, The Pharcyde, Ben Harper, Kula Shaker, Presidents of the United States and have even had Jon Fishman (Phish) join the band for a SeepeopleS set during a Bernie Sanders rally. They have been featured in Pop Matters, Magnet, Exclaim, High Times, Relix. DRUM Magazine, Blue Walrus and now Daytrotter, to name a short few. Their music has been used on Judging Amy (TNT), The Gates (ABC), and in feature films such as 'Canvasman,' and 'Wheels Over Paradise,' as well as on the Discovery Channel and NASCAR broadcasts. They provided most of the music for the Headcount (voting registration) documentary 'Call To Action' and have played CMJ, SXSW, as well as a major music festivals' Wakarusa and Allgood Music Festival.

Recently the band released their newest EP, 'HATE' in 2017 as well as a brand new video animated by Pete List (Celebrity Death Match/MTV, Marilyn Manson). The band has been on tour for the past couple years in support of their triple series of EP releases, 'LOVE,' 'HATE,' and 'LIVE,' which is scheduled for release this Christmas. All three EPs will be released digitally with some bonus tracks as 'SeepeopleS LOVE HATE LIVE' at that time as well.
Trismalux
Trismalux
Trismalux is a genre melting, 4 piece band from Charlotte, NC. After forming in 2016 and a year of incubation, the tastes, styles and backgrounds of 4 very different musicians fused into a unique blend of Jazz/Funk, Hip Hop, Rock & Roll fusion. With the improvisational tendencies of Jazz musicians, the lyrical inclinations of a Rapper and the structure of a rock band Trismalux strives to reach their branches into the electronic future with their roots firmly planted in live instrumentation. Often asking “what would Jazz be if it were born today?”.



Conrad Harvey the lead vocalist and keyboard player, was born in Asheville, NC and raised on the Beatles and Bach in Colorado. He however began his foray into music after discovering hip hop at age 12. He used the conduit of lyrics as an outlet for depression but eventually evolved into singing, playing multiple instruments and styles reflecting his eclectic musical roots and an increasingly optimistic lyrical outlook. In addition to songwriting he also works as a Narrator for commercials and documentaries.

Mikey Marrero the guitarist was born in Puerto Rico. He is heavily influenced by the likes of traditional Spanish music, Genesis, Claude Debussy & Dream Theatre. He is a professional guitar teacher, classical guitarist and has played in multiple Metal & Progressive rock bands as well as often sitting in with Jazz projects.

Chaz Harris the drummer was born in Shelby, NC. His musical roots can be found in the drum line as a drummer, arranger and drum major, if you track his roots far enough they reach all the way back to beating on pots and pans in the kitchen. He grew up with R&B, Hip Hop, Soul and RUSH. He not only plays Drum and Bass and electronic style beats on an acoustic kit, he also builds custom drums & kits from scratch.

Alex Kalicinski the (Polish) bassist was born in Houston, TX and raised in Charlotte, NC. He taught himself to play the bass by hermetically locking himself in a room with Primus records and a bass until he figured out how to play like Les . He has played in bands from multiple genres and projects and is heavily influenced by Jaco Pastorius, Stanley Clark, Victor Wooten & Thundercat.
