    Family of the Year

    Indie Rock

    Family Of The Year—Joe [vocals, guitar] & Sebastian Keefe [drums, vocals], James Buckey [guitar, vocals], and Christina Schroeter [keyboards, vocals]—quietly captivate with a combination of idyllic instrumentation and emotional storytelling. Following 2009’s Songbook, they toured relentlessly and organically attracted a devout fan base. 2012 saw them release Loma Vista. In the aftermath, the musicians earned praise from the likes of USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, Interview Magazine, and Paste in addition to performing on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, Conan, and more. Its breakout single “Hero” would figure prominently in the trailer and soundtrack for the Academy® Award-nominated and Golden Globe® Award- winning drama Boyhood and surpass 190 million Spotify streams. Coming off the road in late 2015 in support of the self-titled Family of the Year, they began crafting what would become their fourth full-length led by the 2018 singles, “Hold Me Down” and “Let Her Go”. Written and recorded throughout 2016 and 2017, the album represents a philosophical shift and creative breakthrough for the group. Emerging from personal and professional turmoil, the band return with their most hypnotic and heartfelt body of work yet.

    Hollis Brown

    Rock

    The independent act has achieved a significant amount of success since their formation in 2009.  They released their debut album Ride On The Train on Alive Naturalsound in 2013 (produced by Adam Landry), garnering song and video premieres from Rolling Stone, Paste, and American Songwriter, along with music placements on Direct TV's "Kingdom," Showtime’s “Shameless,” MTV’s “Real World,” and the Willem Dafoe/Matt Dillon film “Bad Country”.  Following a Lou Reed tribute concert in NYC, Alive Naturalsound asked the band to record a tribute to the Velvet Underground’s classic album Loaded, as a limited-edition vinyl release for Record Store Day 2014.  Hollis Brown Gets Loaded took on a life of its own, with airplay on influential radio stations, resulting in a full CD & digital release. 
     
    The band has toured extensively in America and Europe, headlining and supporting such bands as The Zombies, Jackie Greene, Heartless Bastards, Rich Robinson of Black Crowes, and Jesse Malin, and building an impressive fan base on both continents.
