With lyrical grit, dynamic grooves, and atmospheric, yet driving melodies, Bendt has carved a distinctive sound into the face of modern rock. Formed in 2015, Bendt evolved out of the crucible of the Albany, New York music scene as a passion project between friends. Bandmates Matt Plummer (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Carl Blackwood (lead guitar), John Longo (bass), and Cole Mead (drums/backing vocals) work to craft a unique presence, one that draws from their individual musicianship and shared love of hard rock, alternative, metal, and funk. As Bendts songs leap between soaring riffs and emotive screams, to unusual time signatures and bass-heavy flows, the band captures something that is universal while simultaneously personal and immediate.
The three-piece bombastic rock band hails from Albany, NY. Their lineup consists of members Patrick Grace (Vocals,Drums), Alex Wollyung (Guitar), and James Johnson (Vocals,Bass). After forming in March 2014, the three longtime friends immediately began work on writing, recording and playing shows locally. Word of mouth spread quickly due to their spastically energetic live performance, as well as a rock sound to back up the hype. After releasing their first EP in 2015, the group switched then bass player Taylor Abbitt to longtime friend James Johnson and began working on their first LP.
Girl Blue is the pseudonym of singer-songwriter Arielle O'Keefe . She debuted her first recorded release on October 5, 2016 with an EP titled I Am Not A Star, introducing a new sound that blends raw soul and rock with keen pop songwriting sensibilities. The single "Fire Under Water" was immediately picked up by Spotify and within a month saw over 1 million plays. Arielle is a fierce and dynamic vocalist and performer, and an accomplished writer and lyricist with a depth in [her] words that belie her age. Audiences have summed up her live performance as follows: There is nothing that can prepare you for the force of emotion and the passion that comes when she begins to sing. And its not only audiences whove taken notice. The moniker maybe new, but Arielle has been invited onstage to sing with such names as singer/songwriter Ingrid Michaelson and the legendary Rod Stewart. She spent a time writing for other artists under Universal Music, has creatively collaborated from coast to coast, and had a television debut on the E Networks program Opening Act. She now moves forward as Girl Blue, a girl and her songs with a mission to stay true to the craft and let nothing stand between good music and an audience.
