The Strawberry Moons

Over the last two years, The Strawberry Moons have become one of the most active bands on the San Diego scene. They recorded a 4-song EP at Emerald Age Studio in Vista, and have performed at some of the most noteworthy venues in the county, including The Belly Up, Casbah and Soda Bar. They also performed at the 2017 In-Ko-Pah Festival alongside acts such as Mattson 2, Playboy Manbaby and Mrs. Magician. The band has been nominated for a 2019 San Diego Music Award, Best Rock Band category. They’ve been featured on the county’s most popular local radio programs (91X Loudspeaker and The Local 94/9), have been the subject of feature articles in SD CityBeat and the San Diego Reader, and have been spotlighted on local television programs SoundDiego (NBC) and Unherd (ABC). They went on their first tour in the spring of 2018, playing in cities in Arizona and California, and they are currently in the mastering stage of their first full-length album, produced and engineered by Ben Moore (Hot Snakes, Diamanda Galas, Ravi Shankar). In January 2019 Hector took over John’s role in the band; his talent and energy have allowed the group to move forward with no signs of stopping.

Stephanie Brown & The Surrealistics

Stephanie Brown & the Surrealistics is a five piece desert rock ensemble featuring front lady Stephanie Brown. The group's inception began in late September of 2016 as a duo between Brown and lead guitarist Ryan Amyot. The duo began co-writing tunes hoping for a sultry subdued sound, but eventually morphed into a psychedelic desert rock five-piece with organ heavy riffs. Bringing in members Michael Stell on keys, Andrew Ware on drums, and Wil Lopez on bass, their sound has been hastily evolving, and will continue to see rapid growth throughout 2018. Brown has been performing in the greater San Diego, CA area with several groups over the past few years, including psych rock band Ocelot, that had the pleasure of opening up for the Budos Band at the Belly Up in 2016. In addition to this, she had the pleasure of recording at the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL in March of 2016, singing backup vocals on Gregg Allman's final masterpiece album, Southern Blood - working alongside talented producer Don Was and closely with Allman himself. Moreover, their tune "Go" has been featured on Showtime's Shameless. Stephanie sings in a raspy contralto, her lyrics often hauntingly melancholic with subtle existential themes. These tracks strive to bring back a 1950's-60's sound. So far, their debut tunes have been compared very broadly to artists including: Link Wray, Mazzy Star, Grace Slick, Lana Del Rey, Florence & The Machine, & Nirvana. Confusing?

Electric Mud

Electric Mud is Marc Hansen, Matty Hansen, Matt Sorena and Colton Cori.

Two brothers started out from NYC, left for sunny San Diego and the Navy. Thats where they met Colton Cori. Jamming turned into a full-time band and Cousin Matt Sorena moved out from the east coast to join up with the boys.

Now with Cousin Matt on bass, Colton Cori on guitar, Matty on drums and Marc on guitar and vocals, Electric Mud is starting out with their own sound influenced heavily by the old rocknroll bands of the 60s and 70s.
