SayWeCanFly
SayWeCanFly
SayWeCanFly is a one man acoustic act from Ontario, Canada. Frontman Braden Barrie has devoted his teenage years to playing shows across Canada and the US, building his following and writing relatable music for his fan base. Growing up in a small town and feeling a sense of abandonment, he shows listeners that no matter what struggles we face, we always have the power to make it through. Braden writes lyrics based around the belief that the world is lacking a connection between humans on an emotional level, and wants to re-establish that bond through his art. "I want everyone to know that no matter what you are going through, someone on this earth understands," Braden says. SayWeCanFly has been featured in Alternative Press Magazine, and had multiple homepage features on the PureVolume website. Braden has been touring under the name SayWeCanFly for two years now, playing throughout various areas of the United States and Eastern Canada on several DIY-booked tours. He has shared the stage with such noteworthy acts as Carter Hulsey, The Icarus Account, Her Bright Skies, Caleb Denison, along with others. More recently, he had a brief stint on the Acoustic Basement stage of the Vans Warped Tour, and recently had a supporting slot on the Bryan Stars Tour, headlined by Ghost Town (Fueled By Ramen Records). From humble DIY beginnings to quickly rising above many of those in the industry, SayWeCanFly represents that being happy comes from doing what you love, and never giving up.
Call Me Karizma
Call Me Karizma is a young up & coming artist from Minneapolis, MN. Fusing his love of rap & punk, he has created a unique sound that can be described as Eminem meets My Chemical Romance. In 2014 he spent his time performing at local Minneapolis shows, releasing his first songs, & building the ground floor of his social media following. In 2015 he hit the ground runing by releasing 2 free EP's & has performed on 3 American tours with artists such as Mod Sun, Blackbear, Huey Mack, Futuristic, & Max Schnieder. He's also scored opening slots on shows with popular international artists Wiz Khalifa, Hoodie Allen, Atmosphere, & more. He will kick off 2016 by releasing his debut album "Loser" followed by another busy year of touring in support of the release.
Marina City
"Marina City is THE Chicago band to watch out for."* Fusing the aggressive instrumentals found in hard rock with the catchy vocal melodies and harmonies found in top 40 pop, Marina City has set out to create something that has never been heard before. Classifying the genre as Aggressive Pop-Rock, the quintet has released 2 Eps, toured heavily from the Midwest to the East Coast, and has shared the stage with well known and established acts such as Go Radio, Amanda Palmer, State Champs, Cartel, and Real Friends. Since debuting at a sold out House of Blues show, Marina City has taken a strictly DIY approach to their booking and management,. This year their newest EP (Chimera) and the music video for their first single ("The Lost Boys") was exclusively premiered on AbsolutePunk.net, featured on Pup Fresh, and Property of Zack.
Relying on "poignant lyrics, three-part harmonies, and one hell of a drummer"** the band features lead vocalist Ryan Argast, guitarist and vocalist Brian Johnson, keyboardist and vocalist Matt Gaudiano, drummer Eric Somers-Urrea, and bassist Aaron Heiy. In 2012 the band ventured away from being a solo act behind singer Ryan Argast and become more of a collaborative group walking away from a production deal in the process. With a degree in music performance, drummer Eric Somers-Urrea creates a strong rhythmic backbone for bassist Aaron Heiy's deep pocket to groove over. Hammond artist Matthew Gaudiano on keys teams up with guitarist Brian Johnson to create the hard-hitting and aggressive center of the band. However, the biggest standout factor for Marina City is that it features 3 lead vocalists. Gaudiano's smooth R&B style and Johnson's raw punk sound compliment the power and emotion of frontman Ryan Argast. Said Chris Triebes owner and talent buyer of Mojoes In Joliet, IL "Marina City puts on one of the most energetic & passionate live shows I have seen from a local-area band in a long time"
