Jet Force Gemini – Monsters
Genre: Pop Punk/ Modern Rock/ Alternative
With their debut album Pistola Melodica, Jet Force Gemini is preparing for an all out assault on today’s modern rock scene. The band pulls no punches with what promoter Leslie J Bialik calls ““…a perfect blend of straight-ahead raucous rock style, with very timely and relevant lyrics.”
Fronted by bass guitarist/vocalist Michael Christopher, Jet Force Gemini blends a tight vocal cadence that dances along with drummer Paul Richey’s driving and expressive beats. The melodies themselves are saturated with harmonic balance between Michael and lead guitarist Roman Bilko. The detail is intricate and deeply layered, often down to the syllable.
Roman’s memorable leads range between classic punk anthems and modern southern rock phrasing to blistering fast classic rock solos and hauntingly romantic ballads. “They are playing in the same playground as Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance,” writes The Musical Junkie.
Richard Schroder – Wildest Dreams
Genre / Sub: Country / Pop
One-time rocker Richard Schroder looks to Nashville for inspiration and comes up with Drive, a new record that straddles country pop and rock somewhere between Tim McGraw and Blake Shelton, Garth Brooks and Keith Urban. Like the best country music, Schroder’s work is impeccably constructed and beautifully realized. “Wildest Dreams” is a tight rocker with a soaring melody and a great guitar solo. Schroder, whose hard work and perseverance have him poised for success, the only thing that matters is having great songs. And he has just that—eleven of them—on Drive.
The Suitz – Energy
are a progressive, hardcore/punk band from Chicago’s North side. The group’s music includes a blend of jazz, blues, ska, punk, and metal. Like Canadian whiskey; they’re a perfect blend with a million variants that pack a wallop.

Bianca Ryan – What I gotta Do ???
Pop / Indie – Singer/Songwriter
I really wanted to write a super fun and catchy song with an 80’s throwback sound for the Summer. “What I Gotta Do” is only the SECOND single from my first EP titles Part One- The Reintroduction that will be released this Summer. “The song is flirty and it’s basically about getting & keeping someone’s attention and just trying to bring your relationship back to when things were fresh & young – which kind of parallels with my idea of the throwback sound,” she added. “I’m asking, ‘What I Gotta Do’ to bring us back to when everything was good and we were smitten for each other.”
