Glass House Point
Glass House Point
Glass House Point is an indie-rock band hailing from the tropics of Central Florida: a place riddled with abundant sunshine and torrential rainfall. The band formed during the particularly stormy Summer of 2013 and has since crafted a sound that defies the expectations of East Coast music culture.

Ambient swells, soothings lulls, and massive bursts of lucid passion put Glass House Point’s music into a category of its own: a category that has yet to be explored by today’s indie artists. The band's 4-piece lineup is comprised of Dylan Graham (Vocals, Guitar), Ian Campbell (Bass, Keys), Jansen Valk (Drums), & Dylan Methot (Guitar). Collectively, they brandish their music with crisp harmonies, synths, and string ensembles. Overall the sound is sophisticated, yet untamed — a quite beautiful contradiction.

The band’s past ventures include extensive US tours and the release of their debut record, Love Lives in Dark Places (2016). Most recently, Glass House Point recorded their sophomore EP with Grammy-nominated engineer & producer, Aaron Gandia.
Brightside
Brightside
Florida-based Indie-Pop band Brightside was formed in 2014 by five friends: Jake, Connor, Dillon, Will, & Cory.

Brightside has made a name for themselves through their high energy live shows, optimistic lyrics, and their love of making new friends in every city they visit. Their discography began with singles “Filthy Bad Habit” and “Hello Reality” off their debut EP “Feels Like Fiction.” This release bolstered the band’s popularity throughout the southeastern United States which prompted a successful crowdfunding campaign for their highly anticipated follow-up EP, “Heart Science.” Since the EP’s release, lead single “AEIOU” has seen consistent radio play and has become the band’s live-show anthem. Radio success sparked the band’s online presence—1,000 plays quickly turned into 150k plays, and they began touring. The band hit the road in early 2017 with We The Kings & Cute Is What We Aim For as part of the WTK10 Tour. Soon after they set out on their first headlining tour, “The Mixtape Tour” which took them around the southeast with a variety of regional acts.
Pathos, Pathos
Pathos, Pathos
"Pathos, Pathos bring new meaning to the words, while being the nicest nice guys you’ve ever met, assuming you’ve been given the opportunity. It would be too easy to say that their music will impress you, or that it will most certainly get stuck in your head like gum to your shoe; as true as those statements would be.

Beyond producing some of the most pleasurable timbres and tones imaginable, the band has a knack for writing melodies so naturally occurring that within a singular listen their songs will feel familiar; as if they’re the tunes you’ve been waiting for and now that they’re here you regret every second before having heard them.

If hooks are your weakness, prepare to be feeble. If heart wrenching lines draped in almost too sweet, soul-swooning instrumentals are what you’re in search of, look no further; the songs of Pathos, Pathos will guide you on your journey."
Empire Cinema
Empire Cinema
Blending the sounds of late 70's post-punk, 90's alternative and modern indie rock, Tampa, FL's Empire Cinema pair a “perfect juxtaposition of melancholia and excitement” (Creative Loafing; Tampa) with a brooding, manic drive.

Formed by primary songwriter Brendon Hock in 2011, the band soldiers on as an integral and steadfast presence in the ebbing and flowing Tampa Bay independent music scene.

Empire Cinema is Hock on vocals/guitar, Michael Raimondi on bass and Andrew Pellegrino on drums. After 2 self-released EPs, the band is currently in the studio recording their debut full length, scheduled for a 2018 release.
