Many young artists may find the allure of being a rock star in the lifestyle or attention that comes with it.. dreaming of making a hit song, touring across the world and living the life few people get to live. Drugs, sex & parties. It's what we all want.. right? LA's Mid-City based rock band, The Living Roomers, think there might be a little bit more to it, and with the soon to be release of their double EP, The Dream Before Afterburn, they hope you may be able to see why. With influences ranging anywhere from Kate Bush to Nirvana to Joy Division, you will hear a very diverse and dynamic sound. Grungy. Groovy. Powerful. All can be used to describe their fresh take on alternative rock, and it's this sound that may first grab your attention but, what lies underneath is just as important. "I think music and really really good bands capture a moment in time and that's what we listen to.. music brings people together in a beautiful way. It's about connecting and love." The message you may find yourself unveiling is what they hope will keep not only you listening, but the many generations to come. The many generations who will be too young to have experienced this time period, and get a chance to live it through the music.. so I sat down with singer/songwriter/guitarist, Truman Flyer, guitarist, Lily Dale & bassist, Jacko Rico, to talk about what's been going on this past year and what we can expect to come from them.
Aaron Shadrow is a multi-instrumentalist and producer from Tarzana, California. You may recognize Shadrow as the guitar player of Alt-Rock outfit Arrested Youth or the drummer of Vaporwave legend George Clanton, but Shadrow has long been a creator of his own music, pulling influences ranging from 80's Electro-Pop to Norwegian Black Metal. Shadrow released his first album First Touch in December of 2018, which presented a seamless blend of 90's grunge, modern House, Synth-Wave, and Pop.
These days, when Shadrow is not touring or working at Clanton's record label 100% Electronica, he is working on a multitude of new solo projects, including a series of singles which will be released sporadically throughout 2020. You can also hear his influence as the producer, engineer, and studio bassist of Los Angeles based trio Wax Charmer.
