Chasin’ Aces Going for Official CMJ Adds

Chasin’ Aces are going for official CMJ adds May 19 & 20

ChasinAces2

Hailing from Darwin, Australia, Chasin’ Aces is a driven, charismatic and unique female fronted rock and roll band.

Thriving within the lively and eclectic local music scene, the band set out to develop a sound that feels like a great compromise between the grit of alternative rock and the appeal of pop songwriting, not unlike acts the likes of Evanescence or Paramore, but with more marked classic rock influences.

Chasin’ Aces is a kaleidoscopic rock band that features musicians with different background; each bringing something truly unique to the table. Their studio recordings and live performance channel their approach and attitude in a very spontaneous and honest way; as portrayed by the band’s debut EP, produced by Brisbane’s very own Stuart Stuart, one of the best know local music producers.

It’s all about fat guitar patterns, tight rhythm sections and bright, heartfelt vocal hooks sitting on top of it all. The recipe is simple, but the way you stir the mix makes all the difference! In other words: personality is everything in a rock and roll band, and Chasin’ Aces don’t fall short of expectations.

The Crossing is impacting Top 40/Hot AC radio with “True North”.

The Crossing

Hailing from the indie/rock melting pot of sunny California, this hometown super band christened “The Crossing” makes it’s headway into the modern alt. rock scene. Vocalist/Guitarist Tad Kent ‘s collaboration with drummer Jared Ramos and guitarist Steven Darling lead to a fusion of rock and melody-driven instrumentation and verse. Fueled by high-energy emotive choruses blended with Kents’ bleeding-heart lyrics, Darling and Ramos’ powerful leads and compelling delivery, each track breathes it’s meaning in a powerhouse of honesty and rawness. The Crossing brings the familiar elements of rock back with a fresh notion of what it really means to write a song that moves a crowd.

Evolution Beat’s fusion of pop and contemporary ska began in the Ventura County/LA underground, where Garrett Stevens built a strong following as the main songwriter, vocalist and guitarist in the band, ElevatorSka (and a history of other SoCal bands) prior to teaming up with producer and studio musician, Kerwin “Skooter” Williams. Williams has worked with artists such as Snoop Dogg and on notable television and film scores, while also in demand for his talents as a session bassist. The duo formalized their partnership in late 2013 when Stevens and Williams co-wrote the radio single “Love Me More,” at the same time creating a new sound that neither of their former bands had previously produced.
