Inspired and the Sleep

Originally form Carlsbad, CA and now based in Los Angeles, Inspired and the Sleep consists of singer/bassist Max Greenhalgh and guitarist/keyboardist Bryce Outcault. Inspired and the Sleep's indie pop jams burst with hook filled flavor and pack an electronic punch. Their latest EP "AVO" is a danceable tour de force of self produced brilliance.

Trouble in the Wind

A band raised in the Southern California sunshine, Trouble in the Wind has a sound that filters the
golden state’s surf-rock glow through layers of gritty folk with a twinge of country.

With momentum from their award-winning releases “Pineapple Moon” and the critically acclaimed “Lefty” the band is poised to release one of their most ambitious projects to date, a new full-length record called “Hammer On.” The new album releases July 20th, 2018 on In Your Neighborhood Music.

Hammer On’s tracks feature influences from Neil Young, Wilco, Dylan, even Springsteen and sultry sprinkles of the Yacht Rock genre. Singles “Lone Starman” and “Touching Down” include multi instrumental flavorings that harken Wilco’s groundbreaking “AM”, while “Tiki Bar” takes us on a fun yacht rock filled dance floor cruise and “Liberty Bell” shows the bands edge beyond Americana into blistering dark side Neil Young sounds. But don’t forget “Fall Guy” with a chorus to bring all the fans together with their mugs in the air singing “ooohh, ooooh, there’s a frog in my soul”. Happiness, love struck, with a touch of darkness and comedy, it’s Trouble in the Wind.

The group's identity is driven by powerhouse front man Robby Gira, whose voice conjures memories of David Byrne’s commanding delivery in “Stop Making Sense.” And like many of the great acts they've been compared to – including the Talking Heads, Roy Orbison and Neil Young – they deliver a style layered with rich instrumentation.

TITW's music ranges from solemn, mournful tunes layered with pedal-steel to fun-loving, upbeat numbers with quick-paced banjo plucking. TITW sways between genres, Americana, Alt Country and Rock Alternative. Their album tracks include everything from party anthems to love songs. There is a cohesive nature to the band's sound, making it easy to identify a familiar Trouble tune within the first few notes.

Imagery Machine

Since their formation in 2015, San Diego band Imagery Machine has set the local music scene on fire. Their distinct style of female-fronted indie rock psychedelia with undertones of reggae and progressive rock create an intoxicating, dynamic sound. Described as sounding similar to The Cranberries, Florence + The Machine and The Police, this troupe is fronted by the sultry voice of Jennie Dreams, with a band featuring accomplished musicians James Howard on lead guitar, bassist/vocalist Will Parsons, and drummer Tyler Shimkus. Imagery Machine was recently nominated for Best Indie/Alternative Band at the 2019 San Diego Music Awards, and the band has garnished two more nominations for their self-titled EP and Skydriver EP in 2017 and 2018 respectively. The band’s musical energy and passion shines through their immersive live performances, which feature kaleidoscopic lighting, frenzied stage presences, and an imaginative use of glitter and face paint. Imagery Machine has captivated a wide range of audiences; from street fairs, farmers markets and beer festivals along the coast of California to San Diego mainstay rock clubs such as The Casbah, Belly Up and Soda Bar. The band also played their first international shows in 2018 with more planned for the near future. This group of musical trailblazers is showing no sign of stopping, with big plans to release more much more content in 2019.
