Randolph Chabot Jr. started to make electronic music when he was 13 at his home in Sterling Heights, MI. He finished his first album that year despite the ecstatic, aural trauma it caused his mother. He studied youth development in college with the intent of becoming a social worker, dropping out to pursue music full time. He formed an electro band called Veleciraptor, which inspired the ideas for his current synthesized projects: Our Brother the Megazord and Deastro, which try to blur the lines between electronic and acoustic music. All the music is made in Randolph's basement with the help of alot of sampled children's toys and synthesizers.
"With less than a year together ... the trio of Kyle Mann, Vincent Naples, John Norman weave textures and sounds with the best, combining elements of Morphine, mellower Alice in Chains, and even a touch of Fleet Foxes. These three harmonize in song and instrument to create a tight collection of sonic explorations." - The Deli Magazine
LA-based rock 'n' soul band. Full-length debut record due out this fall!
Treehouse was born in 2006 as a duo between brothers Jim and Pete Tashjian. The goal was simply to create a vehicle for songwriting, and to hone the noble craft. In 2008, they added vocalist Leslie Beukelman and bassist Martin Stonikas to the mix. The band's nucleus was formed and they began performing in various clubs around Chicago. The music has been described as prog folk to indie pop, but as with any band these days, a wide array of influences are interspersed. Treehouse recently released their first record, "whatever they're paying you... i'll double it" in November 2011.
