About this Event

THE SOL JOURNEY

Melodic Monster and The Sol Journey is a three-piece band from Atlanta, GA led by Ben Garden aka Melodic Monster (guitar/vocals) with Real Soon (bass) and Duckie (drums/percussion). The band was formed from the mind of Ben Garden as a way to bring to life the music he created based on the story of Melodic Monster, an intergalactic tale that speaks of love, broken hearts, sheer bliss, and tragedy. These themes are illustrated by different sounds spanning from Alternative Rock, and Ambient to Dirty Blues.

SHAWN SPENCER

After fronting the band Seven Handle Circus for several years, being featured on Conan, People, Paste & GuitarWorld, climbing the Americana Radio Charts, and supporting bands Mumford and Sons, Better than Ezra, and Zack Brown Band, Shawn Spencer ventures into alternative rock, with his new project.

"7HC was a beautiful thing that just kind of happened... we were a bunch of guys who started jamming and ended up with what was quickly becoming a very successful touring career. But in the end it was more than some had bargained for and they wanted to settle down. Me... I'm just not prepared to settle".

The first move was hitting the studio and making a record with producer Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum selling producer Billy Hume (Ludacris, Ying-Yang Twins, Infamous Stringdusters).

With Spencer's knack for big choruses with powerful lyrics and Hume's history of hard-hitting mixes, the album, entitled Empty Seas, comes out edgy but with that sing-ability that pop music craves.

DRU CUTLER

Dru Cutler's music is “Both delicate and intense, offering the weight of indie-rock alongside a much softer, folk-like, acoustic ambiance”- Stereo Stickman

Originally a Tampa, FL native, Dru Cutler now lives in Brooklyn, NY where he converted a giant warehouse into a DIY live music venue and recording space called

Unit J (www.UnitJBushwick.com).

His new record "Bring Closer the Distance" record tells more vulnerable, personal stories. Including a tribute to his stepmother, (in a song called “Judy”) who disappeared from his life when he was twenty one years old.
