Imagery Machine
Imagery Machine
Home grown in San Diego, Imagery Machine is no stranger to the city’s eclectic music scene. Its members include four of the city’s most talented young veterans, who only recently came together to create an ethereal, yet driven style of music. While the group would describe themselves as female-fronted San Diego rock music, Imagery Machine also embodies the spiritual reincarnation of classic rock and jam bands from yesteryear, adding to it their unique, modern perspective. Comprised of lead guitarist James Howard, drummer Tyler Shimkus and vocalist/keys player Daechelle Hernandez, this innovative group is heralded by the haunting, soulful lead vocals of Jennie Lynn. The color of their vibrations shines in their performances, and the group commands a stirring stage presence that has already packed some of San Diego’s most popular venues. Just like their live shows, Imagery Machine’s studio recordings bring forth a powerful, touching emotionalism paired with intimate lyrics and a galvanic beat that is all too rare in the modern age.
The Mondegreens
The Mondegreens
The Mondegreens is a group of five Seattle-based musicians, carving out a niche in the city’s prolific indie rock scene, one that centers on wide dynamic swings and ever present three-part harmonies. The group’s two frontmen, David Friedlander and Russell Rabut, draw on over a decade of singing together, spinning harmonic webs across the peaks and valleys of the group’s vibrant sound, their voices as likely to combine over a selection from Neil Young’s back catalog, as a slacker rock anthem from their youth.

Raised in the small college town of Chico, CA, original members, Friedlander (bass) and Rabut (guitar), founded the band amidst the throes of a wild 2013 Christmas party. Along with drummer, Scotty Jenkins, the group toured the western U.S. for three years, before leaving their hometown, in favor of Seattle’s fertile ground. Since the relocation, the lineup has expanded to include accompanists, Joe Davis (guitar), and Noah Kapioski (keyboard), both of whom draw on classical backgrounds.

In late 2016, the band released their second studio album, “A Passing Phrase,” a diverse collection of original songs that culminates in their guitar-driven take on the haunting Elliott Smith classic, ‘Twilight,’ recorded at Phil Elverum’s (The Microphones, Mount Eerie) beautiful Anacortes, WA studio, The Unknown. 2016 also saw the Mondegreens sharing the stage with Avi Buffalo, Brothers Comatose, Jelly Bread, Rainbow Girls, and Marty O’Reilly. As the new year warms up, you will find them howling and stomping their feet across stages from festivals to living rooms, and everything in between.
The Lazulis
Based out of San Diego, CA, The Lazulis is what drummer Matt Misquez calls a "post-introspective pop experiment". Pulling from an eclectic variety of influences and styles, the young band has a versatile sound that is geared towards upbeat live performances. According to guitarist Jon Cefalu, the creative process of the band relies heavily on a bastardization of diligent practicing, and whiskey-drunk jam rock.
