WYO
WYO
WYO is a rock band originating from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Taking inspiration from the cinematic landscapes and epic mountains of his upbringing, singer-songwriter Andy Sorge utilizes an organic instrument palette to create the soundscape that is WYO.

After attending film school in New York, Andy met multi-instrumentalist, Scott McKay Gibson, and the two began composing music for documentaries, commercials, and short films together in Wyoming. Perhaps this explains the reason that WYO’s music has a way of evoking such striking visuals that stir the imagination. The pair began delving into Andy’s original songs that would soon become their debut album Untamed. They teamed up with veteran Los Angeles-based producer, Brad Wood (Smashing Pumpkins, Pete Yorn, Ben Lee…), to provide a fresh ear to finalize their work. Guitarist Pelle Hillstrom recorded on the album, and is now playing shows with the band.

Serving as an introduction to their world, this project embodies the search for a place that’s alive and wild. It’s an endeavour that deals with love, loss, and constant exploration. It’s a tale of reconciling city life with the Wild West of Wyoming.
Duuns
Duuns
Duuns is a psychedelic rock band, birthed in the far northern reaches of San Diego county. Initially christened with the name Matcha in 2016, Duuns is the musical machine piloted by Mikey Sykes, Nathan Gentry, Marc Montez, and Luke Cottrell.

Wholly embracing their amateur roots, a do-it-yourself attitude, and throwing aside traditional practices and protocol, no members stick to an assigned instrumental role, and their recordings are crafted and produced themselves. Their songs move from warm, shimmering, and welcoming, to jamming manic darkness, covered in fuzz and feedback, dripping with schizophrenic echoes of shouts and whispers, but always holding on to an incessant groove. There is a heritage of music within them, consumed in a strange brew of the frenetic energy of early Pink Floyd, the pulsing and mechanical kraut-rockers CAN, the drones of Spacemen 3, and the timeless song-craft of the Rolling Stones and the Brian Jonestown Massacre.

More than just a band, they are explorers of sound and art, and they change directions, sounds, and styles as they see fit. They seek to represent a community of artists and creative people working together to develop culture, and deeply connect, impact, and inspire people in an era that needs it more than ever.
