DECORATOR
DECORATOR
Los Angeles spawned, Decorator, is a four piece soul & alternative band made up of three literal and figurative brotha's (Alix, Miles, and Reece), and one Matt.

Born out of nights rummaging through their parents CD collection, Alix, Miles, Reece & Matt picked up instruments and started learning how to play covers of the Isley Brothers, The Doors, Hendrix, Toots & the Maytals--whatever they could get their hands on as young teens.

In high school they started writing their own music. Mom and pops would drive them to gigs on school nights playing in bars they weren't even allowed to be in without guitars and mics plugged in.

Now, influenced by music spanning from 1960 to present day, Decorator has created their own blend of high octane alternative rock and neo r&b. Decorator can give it to you however you want. Sweet and soft, or hard and heavy. Though young, they've crafted their live set and songwriting for quite some years and are truly a music lover's band.
The Shakers
The Shakers
The Shakers were formed in 2009 when guitarist and music catalyst Chris Lee moved to Los Angeles to form a project to help him realize the music he’d been writing over the past year at that time. The project grew and evolved over 7 years and spawned 2 full length albums, 2011’s “Oh So Loud” and 2013’s “Rescue Team.” The group toured all over the East and West Coasts and have opened for the likes of Our Lady Peace, Everclear, The Motels, Semi-Precious Weapons and Warner Drive.

In 2014 the band was honored by having their album “Rescue Team” turned into a living breathing work of aerial astonishment at the hands of Jordann Baker Skipper, creator of Shapeshifter.
Andy Allo
Andy Allo
Every so often, an artist comes along who is indefinable -- an artist who is truly paving her own way with bits of music, sound, vibes and words that speak to her on a deeper level. Such an artist isn't bound by genre and is intent on creating a unique musical expression of herself. Cameroonian singer/songwriter/guitarist Andy Allo is that artist.
Andy's new solo sophomore album, Superconductor, has people calling her a refreshing songbird with a bright funk soul. She joined Prince's New Power Generation band in 2011 as singer/guitarist, and co-wrote three of the album's nine tracks with Prince. Andy wrote the remaining six songs on the record and enlisted the help of some legends to make her sound complete: legendary saxophonist Maceo Parker and Trombone Shorty.
She recently completed a string of sold out tour dates in Europe and is embarking on her third album. She continues to make waves as an independent artist.
"I feel like this is just the beginning of my story," she says. "There’s a lot I want to share with the world.”
The Mosaics
The Mosaics
The Mosaics are a genre-bending group of kaleidoscopic proportions. Combining "flower child" harmonies that harken back to a simpler time, with a dazzling array of melodic soundscapes and a powerful live show, the band channels a genuine spirit of humanity.
After completing a West Coast tour in 2016, the Los Angeles-based group returned to debut EP at HAUS music in Los Angeles. They released the hard-hitting "Elephant Song", which illustrates the bands' ability to transport the listener to multiple dimensions.
Alice Underground
Alice Underground
Alice Underground is a time traveling caravan to an anachronistic era set in a locale that’s both familiar and fantastical. For the five members of the LA-based group, however, this has been a journey by happenstance. What was a one-off show now has the quintet chasing mythical characters and architecting a swamp cabaret aesthetic.

Five years after its fateful first show, the LA-based quintet now issues a stunning debut, Cambria Sessions. An album bathed in the blue hues of broken dreams, noir romance, and Golden Age Of Hollywood opulence.

Alice Underground whisks listeners and concertgoers away to an elegant underbelly teeming with deviant jazz, punk rock vigor, vaudevillian theatrics, and sensual emotionality. The group’s oeuvre varies between originals that feel like they were plucked from an American Songbook from a Tim Burton-themed time capsule, and jazz standards reimagined to showcase Alice Underground’s gift for conjuring longing and lasciviousness. The group counts as influences David Bowie, Ella Fitzgerald, Trent Reznor, and Billie Holiday. Fittingly, Alice Underground has been described as “gypsy jazz with a proto-punk edge.”
