R&B/Soul The GalleryBrendan Cooney, Ryan Cooney, Dave Mozdzanowski, and Ben Lozano. -From Wilbraham, Massachusetts.-The Gallery's hook-laden rock songs combine a mix of mainstream appeal and professionalism with indie cred and likeability. Their brand of guitar-driven, southern-infused pop rock blurs the lines between authenticity and commerciality, producing songs that are refined and disarmingly catchy. A subtle biting guitar sound, simple, road-worn lyricism and consistently sharp musicianship transform their tracks into instantly memorable pop gems you don't want out of your head. The foursome have maintained their hometown fan base in New England, while building a similar following in Southern Florida, where they resided for three years. Since their first tour in 2009, they've expanded their fan base across the country, playing shows all over the nation. Honor By AugustMichael Pearsall, Evan Field, Brian Shanley, and Chris Rafetto. -From Washington, DC.-For acclaimed modern rock quartet Honor By August there is a lot in a name. The "August" in the Washington, DC-based band's name refers to another interpretation of the word: to inspire awe or admirationl. Taken as a whole, Honor By August means gaining honor by doing something admirable or awe-inspiring. The name informs their music in several ways. They believe in doing things the right way, with integrity, and making music that comes from a place of true inspiration. Honor By August's poetic sincerity and infectious blend of mesmerizing atmospherics with anthemic choruses have drawn favorable comparisons to U2, Kings of Leon, Snow Patrol and Bruce Springsteen. The Washington Post has called the quartet "one of the most promising new talents of the East Coast." Alexis Keegan-From Los Angeles, California.-Alexis Keegan is a New Jersey-bred, LA-based singer/songwriter, known for her soaring vocals and stirring piano-driven love ballads. Experienced beyond her years, Keegan draws on the everyday experiences of love and loss to fuel her anthemic pop melodies.
