Hands off the ground and buried in a lifetime of musical obsession, Meanies front-woman, Sarah Angela, has roots that run wide. You might reference the styles of Otis Redding, Citizen Cope, or Sia; but despite some of her influences, she's got her own unique sound. One thing's for sure, she sings bigger and louder than her five foot frame would have you assume.
Sarah Angela (better known as S.A.) is a Pacific NorthWest transplant and just as her lifestyle is that of a rolling stone, so have her songs portrayed a pattern of revolving relationships & independent journeys. Angela spent the beginning of the 2000's honing in her sound across the country. Having spent time in Seattle, Portland, the Dirty South, and now Colorado, S.A.'s unique music has become a melting pot of the sounds across America. Life, love, anger, and desire are all themes described in her honest lyrics, as experienced through moving from city to city. Her style has matured thus so into an urban, slightly southern, and painfully earnest soulful sound. She is, in fact, a song bird who never wants to be caged, and never wants to be classified.
2013 has brought the formation of 'Sarah & The Meanies", which kicked off the year with a feature at Austin's South by Southwest, a headlining gig at the historic Red Rocks Amphitheatre and the release of their music video 'Slam Pam Suno' (Directed by Drai Lloyd). The video premiered on the jumbotron of 1st Bank Arena and was invited to join the "Best Music Video" category at the Starz Film Festival, in company with MGMT and Nine Inch Nails.
Onward bound, The Meanies have just wrapped a recording session at The Blasting Room. The studio is known for churning out hits from acts like Rise Against, The Gaslight Anthem, Lydia, The Flobots, Less Than Jake, + more. The new single "DOWN DEEP DOWN", produced by Jason Livermore & Bill Stevenson (Black Flag/The Descendants) is a powerhouse rock anthem that will surely leave you thirsty for more.
La Marche is a Los Angeles-based acoustic rhythm and blues group with a foundation in the heartfelt, soulful vocal melodies and songwriting of Meredith LaMarche.
Meredith, who is a native of St. Louis, Missouri, moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams of becoming a solo artist. She immediately started working with the well-known Sean G, a producer hailing from D.C., and together they created a sound that was indescribeable. The percussion and vocal harmonies became the main component of their music and once they added the funky grooves of acoustic guitarist Dallen Jimenez the trio, LaMarche, was born.
LaMarche, (whose members are Meredith LaMarche, Sean Gilmer and Dallen Jimenez) came onto the competitive LA music scene in 2013 and quickly garnered a steady following on the West Coast and beyond. Their first live acoustic EP entitled "Headin' To The Desert" is just the first taste of what listeners can expect from a future full-length album, set to be recorded amidst a busy touring schedule.
Their original music is a real convergence of a modern hip-hop groove and early delta blues. This groups' timeless music will captivate all music lovers for years to come.
Colorado native Carl Carrell brings fresh vocals to the scene; a smooth blend of soul and experimental sound inspired by Sci-Fi and bad break ups it is a unique, progressive sound. Imagine if Lenny Kravitz and Prince had a love child; Carl’s voice would be the child prodigy from this conception.
Carl has kept himself busy over years with a number of side projects, his latest being CRL CRRLL. The sound embodies an upbeat tempo, honing in on electronic beats, polished vocals with a little funk; an appreciation for the organic soulfulness that doesn’t flourish as much these days. With a unique approach to his sound Carrell brings a freshness and aura of hope that is lacking in today’s music scene.
