Mustard Service, “just five boys looking for a good time” from Miami, was started in 2015 and led to their first album Zest Pop in 2017. The band currently consists of Marco Rivero (vocals, guitar, songwriter), Gabriel Marinuchi (guitar), Leo Cattani (keys), Augusto Di Catarina (bass), and Adam Rhodes (drums). “They played a few push-moshing, beer-spilling, gear-breaking, cop-calling, arrested-getting shows throughout Miami-Dade County, managing to amass a small yet passionate fanbase in their hometown. In those years, GarageBand™ transitioned into ProTools™, recordings evolved into mastered tracks, and small house shows turned into packed venues.” Their success and growing fanbase over the next few years led into the release of their sophomore album titled Ces’t La Vie in March of 2020.
Virginia-based singer/songwriter/producer Ryan Wright brings her songs to life with “an ethereal voice singing angsty lyrics over confectionary synth-driven hooks. Her lyrics–at times profane, often tongue-in-cheek, occasionally devastating–reveal a searing wit and a sensitive heart. Her arresting voice embodies the kind of teenage heartache that is deeply personal and yet universal and timeless. ” Wright confides, “My songs are essentially my bottled-up emotions all being poured out in a way that makes them sound surreal. I wanted to make these very relatable experiences sound unfamiliar and strange–almost like listening to a soundtrack from an alternate reality.” She asks, “Have you bought your tix to come see me and Mustard Service play shows up and down the east coast that’ll knock your socks off?”
Surf punk band Silent Island with San Diego roots is now local to Washington, D.C., “with music that shepherds you to sunshine with a medium-to-heavy breeze. Their EP Sorry About The Mess was released in 2019, and EP Youth on Borrowed Time in 2021, their most recent release being the single “Circles”.
