There is nothing like the sound of an authentic rock band with true chemistry. It’s undeniable that The Dirty Diamond is a band with a bond that can only be described as a real musical brotherhood.

This 4-piece has been getting major buzz in their hometown of Los Angeles and regionally with their well crafted songs and high-energy live shows, as they've been headlining some of the most notable venues in SoCal.

Underneath the intense outer layer of the music is a massive amount of heart and soul, culled from the essence of timeless and boundless rock songwriting. Frontman Sam Babayan is a shaman

like troubadour with lyrics and melodies that touch the heart and make you feel alive. Songs like "From The Stars", "Changes" and "Love and Light" are uplifting anthems of self-realization and brilliantly empowered perspective.

The rest of the band is comprised of some of the finest and most sought after musicians in Los Angeles. Guitarist Fernando Perdomo is a producer and session multi-instrumentalist who has toured

and recorded with Jakob Dylan, Fiona Apple, Todd Rundgren, and many more. Drummer Shay Godwin regularly records and tours the world with the amazing Andra Day (who happens to be a fan of the band).

Bassist Derek Frank currently tours with Gwen Stefani and the ultimate country diva Shania Twain. These musicians work hard, but The Dirty Diamond is where their talents shine the brightest.

The 4 lads are best friends and the camaraderie is obvious on and off the stage.

Their most recent released double album "From The Stars" and "To The Stars" showcases the band's full sonic spectrum and agility from stripped down intimate acoustic takes to more driven high energy supersonic psychedelic rock.

To be a Dirty Diamond fan is a passionate thing. And this passion fuels the band to take every performance to another level of explosive energy.

"Mosher is a sterling example of the influence of Tom Petty on the entire Americana scene. Mosher’s voice is so smoky and strong that it’s perfectly suited to Petty’s musical style, while her stage presence reminds us of a younger Emmylou Harris. The overall sound of the band is head and shoulders over their peers." ~ LA Music Critic, Bob Leggett "Beautiful, compelling melodies with poignant lyrics sung with a sensual, sultry authority... This is good, this is now." -Paul Zollo, American Songwriter Magazine

St James Band

Along with strong rock and roots influences, Saint James inject hard-driven slide guitar blues into their heartwarming tunes —landing them somewhere on the musical map between Neil Young and Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroes.

Coincidentally the bands spearhead, George Castrinos, is the father of Jade Castrinos who co-authored and sang on the Edward Sharpe duet “Home.

The band’s lead single “Always Be With You” is brimming with lovely melodies and colorful optimism. Castrinos displays a hard-won wisdom that can only be gleaned from the spiritual strength he has acquired in the aftermath of a turbulent life, having overcome adversity and drug addiction. The final chorus is sung acapella by a children’s choir, providing a lasting effect that will surely make the listener feel good about their life—which is exactly what Castrinos says he wants to do with his music.
