JANE N' THE JUNGLE
An alternative rock band from Phoenix, Arizona that has set fire to the indie alternative music scene with their electric performances and powerful female vocals. The band released their debut EP in October 2016 with influences such as Alanis Morissette, The Cranberries, and Florence And The Machine. Jane and her "Tribe" have received rave reviews on their unique sound, mixing between 90's alternative and modern rock.
Honda will be featuring 2 "JNTJ" songs in primetime ad commercials airing in 2017 in the U.S.; Hard rocker, 'Smoke & Dust', and an Americana single, 'Open Road Blues'. The Band will be touring to promote their EP this year welcoming all to join the "Tribe".
Sunday at Noon
Sunday at Noon
Sunday at Noon is a raucous 4 piece rock band hailing from Phoenix, AZ led by Jack VanDerPol, who has a charismatic stage presence that is reminiscent of the quintessential frontmen of 1970s rock bands. Jack is backed on drums by his younger brother Nate, a phenom whose skills far exceed his age and guitarists, Dylan and Carl who are accomplished musicians in their own right. Formed in 2015, Sunday at Noon instantly became a local fan favorite and distinguished itself as a noteworthy member of the vibrant Phoenix music community. Sunday At Noon has had two singles named to the 50 Best Songs Written by Phoenix Bands by the Phoenix New Times (“Maybe I’ll Regret It” in 2015 and “Brain Damage” in 2016), and “their potential to rock seems limitless.”- Mitchell Hillman, Phoenix New Times.

They released their first demo, Burning Pictures, recorded at Treehouse Studios in Scottsdale, AZ in 2015. Their single, “Brain Damage” and self-titled EP were recorded at SoundVision Recording) with producer/engineer Michael Beck and released in 2017. They are currently recording their second EP with Sean Whiteman of Interchange Audio (scheduled for release in early 2018).

Sunday at Noon writes and performs high energy pure rock music with the goal of connecting with fans on a personal level and sharing their belief that there isn't a situation in life that music can't fix. They draw inspiration from Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, and Queens of the Stone Age. Their sound is a unique blend of youthful exuberance, impressive classic guitar riffs, and richly expressive vocals.
The Sink or Swim
The Sink or Swim
Don't let the seemingly young age of Phoenix, AZ-based The Sink or Swim fool you. While all age 22 or younger, the band has unleashed their music with an earnestness and fury that is non-negotiable. With each member almost imposssibly boasting of nearly a decade of experience, the 4-piece has released two well-received EP's with a 3rd to follow in the summer of 2017. The boys recorded the new EP at Full Well Recording Studio with Mike Bolenbach.The band's recordings and live performance alike have taken their home of Phoenix by storm with local institution JAVA Magazine claiming, "The Sink of Swim have established themselves as one of the brightest and most ambitious acts in the local music scene." The upstarts' poise and vision is no doubt influenced by not only their love of all things rock n' roll but also their collective struggles with adversity - with one member claiming to be an Israeli fugitive for failing to enlist in the IDF, and another being estranged from his father at a young age due to a stint in prison. It is all these factors that inject their new album "Oasis Unknown" with an even darker and heavier landscape than their recent albums. "The songs are all relationship driven," says singer Nate Zeune. "It's about processing the aftermath, coping." To a man, each member of the band claims to have one goal in their musical endeavors: to make people feel something. Says Zeune, "we're so accustomed to instant gratification, to getting a rush all the time that we're all becoming numb. We want to connect to people with our music....and we want to prove that rock n roll isn't dead." After playing the record release show to a packed house at Crescent Ballroom, Oasis Unknown is now available at most online music sites.
