Gold Connections
Gold Connections
"Gold Connections is a VA-based indie rock outfit melding vintage sounds with punk tenacity. While the band started at William and Mary among such acts as Car Seat Headrest and Swampblossom, frontman and songwriter Will Marsh relocated to Charlottesville after graduation.Thanks to a successful crowd-sourcing campaign in Fall 2015, Marsh recorded his debut LP: Popular Fiction. Tracked at Mitch Easter's Fidelitorium Recordings in Kernersville, NC, and produced by Daniel Levi Goans of Lowland Hum, Popular Fiction explores the mystery of nostalgia, religion, and coming-of-age. The record is planned for a Spring 2017 release. Expect the first single this Fall!

After completing his first LP, Marsh formed the new Gold Connections lineup with Charlottesville High School friends Patrick Haggerty (drums) and Noah Rosner (bass). They channel the rawness and immediacy of a homegrown power trio––evoking Neil Young's melodic noise and Television's poetic attack."
Suburban Living
Suburban Living
Suburban Living aka Wesley Bunch recently relocated to Philadelphia from Virginia Beach, VA. Bunch released the highly acclaimed EP, Copper's Dream in 2012, followed by the "Always Eyes" 7" single in 2013 on Dialog Records. In the past year, Suburban Living has toured frequently up and down the East Coast, and made appearances at CMJ, SXSW and multiple festival dates in Japan. After which Bunch returned to Virginia Beach to record his self-titled debut record at EarthSound Studios with good friend and engineer Mark Padgett. With the full-length album, Suburban Living enters a new saga with a refined "Dream Pop" sound - darker, with a more personal lyrical approach.
Clair Morgan
Clair Morgan
Clair Morgan is a seven-piece rock outfit from Richmond, Virginia. A band that jokingly refers to themselves as being a band and not being a band. With influences ranging from the likes of Cursive, Teenage Fanclub, Shipping News, Hum, Cap'n Jazz and several others, it comes as no surprise that this enormous collective bring their own unique spin to mathematically dynamic indie rock. No surface is left untouched as the group expands on the songwriting of frontman Clair Morgan with a variety of auxiliary instrumentation, smooth harmonies, complex interlaced guitars and syncopated rhythms. All of this combined leads to a unique live experience that can only best be described as a tiny orchestra playing catchy rock tunes.
