Phoenix, Arizona based alternative rock band, Anarbor was formed in 2003 while the members were still in junior school. After signing with Hopeless Records in 2008, Anarbor found mainstream successes providing theme's for Cartoon Network's “Scooby Doo! The Mystery Begins”, ESPN's SportsCenter, Good Day L.A. and MLB Network Countdown. Along with relentless touring in the United States, Anarbor have appeared in Japan, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia. While partnering with Hopeless Records, Anarbor released two E.P.'s and two full length studio albums.
More recently, Anarbor independently released their eponymous third studio album entitled, “Anarbor” in June of 2016. The album was self-funded and produced by long-time collaborator Matt Keller (Lydia, The Maine, The Summer Set, Katastro). Anarbor is comprised of lead vocalist and bassist Slade Echeverria, guitarist Adam Juwig and guitarist Danny Stravers.
Originally hailing from New Jersey, and now based in Los Angeles, The Catching features lead singer and bassist Holden Glazer (19), guitarists Jake Farbman (18) and Evan Hemwall (20) and drummer Drew Stevens (20). The pop rock band draws inspiration from Fall Out Boy, Coldplay and Imagine Dragons. Their carefully-crafted style is highlighted by a sonic palette of polished guitar hooks, Holden's rock-based vocal rasp, a driving low end coupled by a booming backbeat.
The members of The Catching met at a young age while performing together in local New Jersey music programs. Quickly realizing they shared amazing chemistry, and a common vision, this group of talented musicians began collaborating on writing original music. Ultimately, The Catching was formed in 2014.
The Catching released their first EP, "Teenage Fiction Part 1," in 2016 and toured extensively throughout the US, gaining a national fan base along the way. They have recently been in the studio writing and recording with Matt Squire, a world-renowned songwriter and producer, who has produced albums by Panic! At The Disco and All Time Low while also writing and producing top 40 hits for One Direction, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, and Selena Gomez. This powerful collaboration resulted in a new wave of songs that showcase The Catching’s sonic diversity.
Already garnering praise in the press, MTV.com called The Catching one of the "9 Boy Bands that can fill the void of One Direction's Indefinite Hiatus" and Kings of A&R cheered "I was hooked after the first listen."
