Tiny Stills is a power pop band from Los Angeles influenced by Courtney Barnett, That Dog, and 90s/00s rock. Their first album, Falling is like Flying was released in 2014 and was a direct response to the isolation and anxiety that comes from life changing events after front-person and founding member Kailynn West was held up at gunpoint. Born from a desire to make something that felt and sounded nothing like the she felt at the time- happy. Since then, West has been the nucleus of the project with a rotating cast of band members, but most recent lineup includes Harry Foster, Zach Comtois, and Tony Thaxton.
After a last minute lineup change left an opening on a national tour with Bayside’s Anthony Raneri and A.W. in 2015, West stepped in at the last minute to complete the tour as Tiny Stills. She sold thank you cards with download links as last minute merchandise and after selling out of physical copies of the first record; the project hit the ground running. The band’s highly anticipated second album Laughing Into the Void out 6/1/18 is full of tattoo-worthy lyrics, brutal honesty, crunchy guitars and catchy melodies that help you remember that even the worst days have a silver lining- at least you’re not alone.
Jeff Berman fronts the Los Angeles band/singer-songwriter project, Divided Heaven, and has previously played in Philadelphia streetpunk band The Boils, New Jersey hardcore band The RITES, Washington D.C. band V.P.R. & Lancaster, Pennsylvania rock 'n roll band The Statiks.
Bradley Palermo (Record Release)
Before setting out on his solo folk career, Bradley Palermo spent 15 years fronting the bands The Sudden Passion and Femme Fatality. He grew up in St. Louis, MO playing in local indie bands. All the while he was developing an affinity for the alt-country bands that were emerging from the region at the time. Palermo draws inspiration from Americana acts like Son Volt and The Bottle Rockets, and folk-punk troubadours such as Chuck Ragan and Tim Barry. His songs are often autobiographical, turning themes of the open road and free living.
Palermo has been released a plethora of singles throughout 2017 and 2018, putting out a new track just about every month. He launched a successful crowdfunding campaign late last year to create a full length compilation of his best material. “Volume 1” is slated for mid 2019 release on digital, vinyl, and CD formats. He is currently based in Los Angeles, CA and touring internationally.
