    American Pinup
    American Pinup
    American Pinup emerged from the suburban sprawl of Westchester County, New York in 2010 to offer a rousing blend of punk rock and powerpop with seasoned songwriting at its core. Thoughtfully arranged compositions and lyrical depth bolster the band’s radio-ready, exuberant indie rock sound. Fronted by Lauren West, who unites sultry, melodic crooning with a raspy, rock and roll growl, the band draws on influences from across the spectrum of alternative music, creating an explosive mixture of pop-savvy melody and punk rock attitude. The result is the perfect marriage of hook and edge.
    Following two full-length albums and a split released on the indie hero label Altercation Records, American Pinup offered their first self-release in 2015, "The Radio EP," a "short yet sweet offering that showcases just how diverse and matured American Pinup is" (24Our Music).

    Through their extensive touring of North America, including countless appearances at festivals such as Vans Warped Tour, The Fest, and SXSW, and has carved out their own niche in the world of independent music. A tireless, DIY work ethic paired with undeniably infectious tracks and electrifying live shows has propelled the quartet from obscurity to earning a coveted place on the Alternative Press list of “100 Bands You Need To Know” in 2014.

    On the band's future, West says, "2016 has been all about writing new songs and moving forward artistically. It's hard to conceal my pride in what we've been working on. The reaction from fans as we debut this new material on the road has never been quite this enthusiastic. I've never been more excited about what's next for us.

The band has had 2 releases since forming in 2010. Now with two new members (Adam Raymonda Guitar & Harold Beltre Bass) And The Traveleris set to release their self titled EP January 16th"
    Wess Meets West
    Wess Meets West
    Wess Meets West infuse elements of Electronic Music and Post Rock to blend otherworldly soundscapes. They have been featured in Paste Magazine, Electronic Musician magazine, Premier Guitar, NPR Morning Edition, CBS, Wrangler, ESPN's X-Games and most recently, Spotify's Deep Focus Playlist which has over three million plays. Wess Meets West has been labeled as a “Top Ten Bands from CT You Need to Know” and a “Top Up-And-Coming Connecticut Bands to Check out in 2016.”

    "Wess Meets West labels its own music as “defiantly optimistic,” which is as good a description as anything I can come up with. There’s another pretty good word for it, too: “beautiful,” in an unabashed, even romantic way. For all its complexity, Wess Meets West’s music is always emotionally direct, honest, and engaging. It’s music for taking a long trip in a fast car to a part of the country you’ve never seen, for standing on a high peak — even, dare I say it, for falling in love, like you can only at the end of summer." - Brian Slattery, New Haven Independent
