Book of Love
Book of Love
Book of Love was, from 1984 to 1993, a popular synthpop and dance music band, alongside Sire Records labelmates Depeche Mode and Erasure. Led by vocalist Susan Ottaviano, the band also included Ted Ottaviano (no relation to Susan), Lauren Roselli and Jade Lee. The group has been described by the Houston Press as "forward thinking" for lyrics dealing with sexual orientation and gender roles.[1]

Socadia
Socadia
Socadia [so-KAY-dee-uh] is Austrian-born Stephan Martin's brainchild (vocals, guitars, electronics). The sound – dark, moody electronic rock – is driven by pulsing beats and smooth bass lines, insistent guitars and layers of synths, and topped by vocals oozing with dirty lust and passionate pleas.

Socadia is an imaginary utopia: a modern day Arcadia. To live in Socadia is to dream; to aspire; to be uninhibited, vulnerable and free to experience your emotions.

On June 18, 2010, Socadia took the stage to a packed house at London’s famed Hope & Anchor club, marking the start of their “The heart is giving all it can” European Tour. Socadia went on to play the Movida Festival in Salzburg, Austria, and continued through Austria with multiple performances in Vienna, Graz, and Kapfenberg.

“This tour, and this band, were born out of our passion,” says Socadia frontman Stephan Martin. “We are an independent band – no label, no manager, no booking agent. Dusty (our live drummer) and I decided we wanted to play shows in Europe; our sound seems like a good fit. We put it out there to the world, and just said ‘let’s see what happens.’ We
made calls, booked it ourselves, and here we are, touring Europe. The band feels extremely fortunate for this gift.”

When Socadia announced their intentions of a 2010 European tour, Red Bull jumped in to help. Socadia was driven around the Austrian countryside in Red Bull's BRANDWAGEN: a tour bus complete with a built-in stage and sound system. Socadia took full advantage, stopping to play spontaneous outdoor performances in parks, universities, and rest stops along the way to their gigs.

The European tour also marked the debut of “Catch Me,” the new single produced by Bernie Penzias. “Catch Me” is being played on Austria’s Hitradio OE3, and on internet radio channels from Austria, Mexico and the USA.

“The heart is giving all it can” European Tour is Socadia’s second foray to Europe. In 2008, Socadia opened Red Bull’s HangART-11, an art show at Hangar-7 in Austria featuring Los Angeles's top up-and-coming artists.

Socadia released the COY EP in 2008. Director Andrea Giacomini’s (Gnarles Barkley, Fatboy Slim) videos for the track “Always Near” won the 2008 SXSW Click video competition, and was a finalist at New York’s HDFest and Portugal’s ViMus Film Festival. His “Land of Peasants” video was screened at L.A. FilmFest 2009.

Socadia recorded the follow-up EP [trees for the forest] in 2009. The six song EP was released in February 2010, along with the single “The heart is giving all it can,” which was written as a re-dedication to the pursuit of their dreams, and was the inspiration for the summer’s European tour.

The [trees] drum tracks were recorded at KingNoise Recorder, the studio owned by Our Lady Peace frontman Raine Maida. Dusty, who was assistant engineer and digital editor on the latest Our Lady Peace record, "Burn Burn," hopped on the kit to record his tracks during OLP’s downtime.

Socadia brought in longtime friend Matt McJunkins (A Perfect Circle, Puscifer, Ashes Divide) to play bass on [trees], and Our Lady Peace guitarist Steve Mazur lent a hand on the ballad "Safe and Sound."

In early 2011 the Socadia single "Catch me" was placed on the SyFy channel's hit series BEING HUMAN in the episode "it takes two to make a thing go wrong".
Night Club
Night Club
Night Club is an electronic pop duo from Los Angeles, CA that features Emily Kavanaugh (vocalist) and Mark Brooks (producer). Formed in 2011, Brooks and Kavanaugh began writing songs together with the goal of creating a dark synth pop band.

Although Brooks comes with a lengthy pedigree in performing/DJ-ing (Warlock Pinchers, Foreskin 500, Le Pimp and MegaJive), this marks Kavanaugh's first entrance into performing following in the steps of her father, Kevin Kavanaugh (keyboardist from the legendary New Jersey band Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes).

Their debut EP is available now worldwide on iTunes, Amazon, and Emusic.
