Branches
Branches
Best friends turned band-mates... the lady and gentlemen of Branches are making music that they believe in. Through both sing-along celebration and solitary longing, Branches offer their own brand of harmony-driven indie-rock, with elements of folk-instrumentation and pop-inspiration.

Splitting their time between Los Angeles and San Francisco, Branches have described their collaborative process as ‘a lot like long-distance dating’. In their case, absence makes the heart grow fonder, more inspired, and a little too familiar with the 413 miles of road that often lies between them. Their songwriting process has certainly been informed by the tension of this distance - while some songs have managed to form over the course of a single weekend (a la their sophomore EP “Cabin”), others have required months of back-and-forth collaboration before taking their final shape. Recently, the band has passed the time on these all-night drives in long, dreamy conversations about the future, sharing their high-hopes for their recent full-length release, 'White Flag'.

This new collection of songs utilizes every instrument in Branches’ arsenal – electric guitar and banjo, harmonium and synthesizer, tambourine and roto tom – all in support of a lyrical exploration of the two-sided coin of surrender, and an acknowledgement that there are right and wrong times to throw in the towel.

This much-anticipated full-length record debuted September, 2016.

In seasons past, Branches’ musical explorations have landed them on stage with such acts as MUTEMATH, Twin Forks, Family of The Year, and others. Branches has also earned significant success in television and trailer licensing, including placements on The X Factor, Cougar Town, and One Tree Hill. As one of “12 California Acts You Should Listen to Now” (Paste Magazine) and "the real reason Kevin Durant came out to the Bay to play for the Warriors" (Live 105), it's evident that Branches' burgeoning hype is matched only by their own eagerness to take these songs on the road.

When they’re not on the road or in the studio, the band spends most of their time laughing at each other, frequenting local Mexican cuisine, and loving their lives. Join them for a night of singing and see for yourself what their music is all about.
Rorre
Rorre
Rorre is a nostalgic rock band born in San Diego and raised by the city’s very own legends of the music industry. The members have been dreaming up their passions together since before they could play music, and their history as mates-before-music is what makes Rorre so electric.

Their love for various genre’s, their passion for growth and hunger for creating honest and vulnerable music all began together almost a decade ago. They’ve cut their teeth on each other, and now they’re ready to share their music with you.

Impressed with their potential, local legendary San Diego rock band Switchfoot offered them their private studio to record their inaugural E.P. “Songs in Transit.” The mates were then able to call upon the talented Jesse Dorman of the band Hawai to produce their record. Dorman, who has worked with Tyson Motsenbocker, Almost Monday, Scott Ruth, J. Thoven and many more, helped bring out exactly what Rorre needed to say to the world. And with the finishing touches of Tanner Sparks, who sports an impressive engineering resume including Switchfoot, Jon Foreman and Weezer, Rorre’s music was only ever going to be a sound that demanded to be heard.

Listen to Rorre and you will hear a powerful and familiar sound that takes you on a journey throughout musical history. If Songs in Transit were a dish, it’s recipe would call for music from all genre’s and its flavor would remind you of bands like Oasis, Radiohead, Tom Petty and many others. Their newest single, “You Never Say Goodbye,” is a perfect example of a song that reminds of us the great era of 90’s rock and roll (release date for the single is April 2019).

See Rorre play and you will be invited into the love and appreciation the mates have for each other, for music, and for you. Giving everything is important to this group, and Rorre’s energy both on-stage, and off-stage are what set them apart. There is no ego here, even if there should be. Instead there is just passion, hunger, appreciation, and love.
