Today’s Artist Lineup:
Ugly Melon: Leave it all behind
The song means a lot to us. We’ve been around for a while; we’re not kids. Lu and I played together as teenagers, and kind of went our own different ways and did other things. When we got back together, I felt that I was lyrically prepared to talk about more real subjects. Because the music is a little dark, loud and honest, our partnership really works. ‘Leave It All Behind’ is about the struggles that everyone has in their life, whether it’s losing someone, depression or whatever the struggle is, and knowing that you have to fight to get through it. The song is not a happy song, and doesn’t end where you succeeded. Life’s struggles never end, and that’s ok. Your struggle, and everyone else’s, is hard. The idea of the song is to not hold onto the things that have happened to you for the rest of your life (even though that’s really difficult). You have to try to let go of things from the past that gave you stress, anxiety, depression or whatever the case is. It’s all about looking forward, no matter hard something might be to face.

Acid & Pearls – You Need To Be With Me
Having lived in Las Vegas, all lights and glitter, and having played in cover bands earning a living in some of the upper-echelon Casinos it was inevitable to have some of the aspects. Of the “high-life” rub off on me. I thought of how I see myself as active participant and “You Need To Be With Me” was born. The power of our band Acid&Pearls helped me bring the excitement to reality.
Laura Lavalle – Now

Broken Rail – Memory
Following the path set by legends such as Godsmack, Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach & Disturbed, Alabama rockers BrokenRail set out to make their own mark in today’s music with their own blend of post-grunge hard rock. Working effortlessly to get their music heard worldwide, BrokenRail’s music has been featured on ESPN, NBC Sports, Tony Hawk’s RIDE Channel, and many more all while garnering a nomination for ‘Rock Band of the Year’ in their home state in 2016. BrokenRail is currently gearing up for their next major tour behind the band’s new release, the BROKENRAIL EP. The EP was recorded in Burbank, CA with As I Lay Dying producer Joseph McQueen with mixing and mastering by Papa Roach producer Kane Churko & Bullet For My Valentine producer Logan Mader.
Mark Diamond – Weapons
Tattooed onto Marks left forearm reads “XVII-II-MMVI” – the date he first performed an original song in front of a large audience. Each day that tattoo staring at him is a reminder that all it takes is the courage to be yourself. At that moment, Mark remembers feeling like nothing in his life would be the same. Diamond is from Washington state and grew up in a small town outside of Seattle called Maple Valley. He blames the rain for his style of writing. Through all of the music he writes, Mark hopes to help those similar to him, giving them a moment to quiet their busy minds, even if its just for a moment.

S.O.S – Bittersweet
22-year-old Sophie aka S.O.S hails from Bedford, United Kingdom. She was originally born in Malta where she became a resident singer on Maltese national television and performed at numerous prestigious events establishing her passion for music. Following her love of music, she moved to the UK, by the age of 18, where she was awarded a scholarship to study for a BA in Song writing at The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance (ICMP) in London for which she was awarded a first-class degree. This has played a major role in her success in the UK so far and four years down the line, Sophie regularly performs around the live music circuit in London. Towards the end of 2015, Sophie’s music took an exciting turn as she began to experiment with music production. Her current sound draws influences from the likes of Alessia Cara, Ellie Goulding, NAO, Halsey and Lorde. She was recently in the studio with her producers recording debut EP ‘Edges of The Mind’ which is due for release in 2017. Her first single is ‘Bittersweet’. https://soundcloud.com/sosofficialuk/bittersweet
Ashley got her start at the age of 13 as a busker (street-performer) on the mean streets of Boston, MA. Her guitar playing, vocals and original music caught the attention of local venues who noted the crowds that gathered to listen to her perform. At nineteen years old she’s twice the songwriter than most now with two top notch albums to her credit, a powerfully emotive voice and stellar song crafting skills.
