The Sound of Urchin
The Sound of Urchin is a musically diverse guitar-rock band from Brooklyn, NY and New Hope, PA. SOU is known for their eclectic songs, for energetic, spontaneous live shows, and for their heavy touring schedule; as well as for being from the Ween family of musicians. The band is led by singer/drummer Chris "Tomato" Harfenist and guitar hero Bill "B-ILL" Fowler.
Sound of Urchin's debut E.P. was released on Tomato's own label, Steven Records, in 1998. After further developing their style and sound, they signed to RCA Records and began working with friend and musical mentor Dean Ween to produce "The Orange EP". From 2000 to 2002, the band released the "You Are The Best" album (produced by Keith Cleversley of Flaming Lips, Hum fame), and two E.P.'s , and made a video for their song "Scary Skull Eyes" which was featured on MTV2's 120 Minutes for being a groundbreaking video. The concept for "You Are The Best" was for it to be produced like a mix-tape, where each song was recorded then mixed separately, in response to the cookie-cutter type production techniques of the time. During this time Urchin toured with such diverse bands as Tenacious D, Mike Watt, Cracker, and Dio/Deep Purple/Scorpions.
Scenic -Formerly Unscene Patrol
Scenic is exploding onto the national music scene. The Omaha natives have toured across the US opening for acts like Lybecker, Remedy Drive, and Chris August. With their most recent single "We Are More" getting international radio play in the US & Canada, they've been working diligently on new music to release for the last 3 years.
The band is driven by a goal to unify people. Creating an environment where people from different backgrounds, cliques, and scenes can come together and sing out songs and enjoy that unity through the power of music and the live rock show. Being compared to acts like Switchfoot, Weezer, and Imagine Dragons, they have a unique sound that attracts people with so many different musical style preferences. The live show will draw you to awe and inspiration, and hanging out with the band after the show is always welcome. "We want to be an approachable band, a group of guys who are always welcoming conversation and dialogue," frontman Kevin McClure says, "We love the people who come out to our shows, and we want to interact with them and hear their stories. Those stories are what fuel us on the road."
