Engage The Unseen

In Life we must expect the unexpected, go into the unknown head on, and have the strength and determination to keep moving forward" - ETU

Engage the Unseen or ETU started in the winter of 2012 in Billings, MT. The band worked tirelessly on perfecting their songs and performance skills. Once they believed they had enough solid material to enter the studio. Engage The Unseen began working with Matt Ryan, Formally of the Billings Band “The Farthest Edge” on their first 7 song EP “Just Shut up and Listen”. In April of 2015 the Ep was released to much local praise along with some national praise.

A video for "Rise" caught the Attention of the WestFall Recording Company in Long Island, NY.Anthony Lopardo and Ray Marte sought to bring the band to New York to Record a full length album among other services that would help the band progress to the professional level they wanted to achieve.

ETU has gone through a few lineup changes in their short time, but now have the strongest foundation to build upon.

2016 will be a promising year for Engage the Unseen. A new Album, new video and a whole new adventure await them and they are ready to take that leap.

Dead Presleys

“We take pride in that we are a ‘rock n’ roll’ band”, says Vocalist/Guitarist Kerry Sherman. “We believe that comes with a certain attitude and responsibility and as long as we hold to that, nothing else matters.”

Dead Presleys goal is to come out swinging. “We don’t want to be a band that takes a lot of time to ’find’ our sound. We want to come out of the gate feeling like we’re firing on all cylinders.” Before they played together, Kerry, Colton Gabel (drums), Cole Costello (Guitar) and Zachary Reiter (Bass), spent months discussing what they wanted to be as a band. What did they come up with? “Tight, fun, groove-oriented and it HAS to feel like rock n’ roll to us.”

Within those parameters, Dead Presleys’ music varies quite a bit. They take inspiration from all sorts of genres, including blues rock, hair metal, classic rock, reggae, country, punk rock and pop. If this sounds like it could get muddy, don’t worry. Dead Presleys have been playing music together in different projects off and on for 12 years. They know how to play together and mesh those varied styles into something cohesive.

“This is the most fun I’ve ever had playing music. I tried to get this project off the ground when I lived in Denver. You think you’d have a ton of great musicians to work with down there, but I couldn’t find people that meshed and were dedicated. It took moving home to a small town to find the right people. We’re excited for the future.”

Dramady

Dramady is a two piece rock band from Portland, OR. The band consists of Amanda Mason Wiles (Rollerball, Six Foot Sloth, The Pink Widower) on bass, vocals, clarinet, and saxophone, and Zac Stanley (Narwhal vs. Narwhal, Miss Massive Snowflake) on drums, vocals, and keyboards. The music is highly rhythmic danceable pop with groove laden dub bass and melodic horns. Zac is pretty amazing to watch live as he plays drums, keyboard, and sings all at once while the crowds dance the night away.
