Three dudes from Charleston. We recorded an acoustic EP in our foyer. Some of us may or may not have been drunk for most of it. Enjoy. If anyone likes this, we'll have an electric EP coming soon. So please let us know.
Since the age of thirteen, Chelsea Rhae Childers has been teaching herself guitar, and began to perform in high school at talent shows then moved on to playing at open mic nights and collaborative gigs at local venues in college. As the voice for television commercials, creator of store jingle advertisements, and accomplished songwriter published on itunes, Chelsea’s music career led her all the way to performing thirteen shows in Los Angeles last year . She has one solo EP recorded, and is recording more soon. Her major influences are Edie Brickell, Stevie Nicks, Jewel, Alison Krause, Regina Spektor, Alanis Morissette, and Sherly Crow.
Rooted in an intriguing partnership of folk/rock melodies, and anti-folk acoustic songs, this singer/songwriter manifests both sentiment and depth into her collection of straightforward and evocative tunes about love, loss, and ephemeral longing in a world of social constructs.
Her lyrics are equally eclectic, often taking the form of abstract narratives or first-person character studies, similar to short stories or vignettes put to song. The layered palette of songs in her collection include highly original and passionate contemporary folk/rock arrangements that feature Childers’ progressive folk lyrical style, showcasing her talent for rich musical textures.

There’s more to The IZM than meets the eye.
On the surface the band, which consists of Jaesen Moore (vocals), Jason Woolley (Guitar), Merrill Weekley (Guitar), Matt Sellers (Bass) and Nadia Manigo (Drums), may appear to be just another group of friends playing hard rock-influenced music.
But look beyond a sound that draws from bands such as System of a Down, Tool and Soundgarden and you’ll find an underlying theme deeper than that of any other band on the Grand Strand — or perhaps the planet.
“The theme of [our music] is just the understanding that there’s more. Everything that they tell us, everything seen and felt, there’s more out there that is beyond understanding,” says Moore. “Essentially that’s the theme to get people open their minds about what it is I’m talking about and to get people to think.”
Guided by this basic existential principle, The IZM has broken down the conventions of traditional rock music locally while also balancing jobs, families and music.
And though these worldly issues,The IZM will continue their quest to open the minds of global music fans!
