Artist Information

River City Extension Bio

We are a band from New Jersey and though this bio desperately needs a publicist, here it goes: We started in 2007. A lot of people came and left. Here we are with our third full-length record. It is called Deliverance. If you want to know what we sound like come hear us live. We tour a lot.

Artist Information

Cold Fronts Bio

Cold Fronts started playing shows in an abandoned building in West Philly called the Rathaus. The local press dubbed it “Satans Dorm Room”. During an impromptu street show at SXSW, Semour Stein, president of Sire Records, happened to be walking by and liked the bands songs. Like a page out of the rock and roll fairytale book, he signed the band and things have not been the same since.

Artist Information

Ellis Bio

On our first album “You and I EP”, we wrote a song about a killer whale named Wilson who drinks Gatorade and eats ravioli. As you can imagine, it’s hard to put your heart into something like that. This is such a stark contrast to how we write now. We sing songs that we believe in with our whole hearts – and we feel like that’s what music should be. Ellis Island was a place of new beginnings. It was the start of an adventure into a whole new world. Ellis is a new beginning for us.
