Lydia
Lydia is an indie rock band from Gilbert, Arizona. Formed in 2003, frontman Leighton Antelman along with a different array of band mates released three albums and took to the road for their first headlining tour in 2008 in support of their record Illuminate.

After a brief hiatus in 2010, the band returned in September 2011 with a new song, and their album, Paint it Golden, was released shortly after in October of that same year. Lydia’s success has led them to tours such as the Zumiez Couch Tour, Vans Warped Tour, and The Bamboozle Festival as well as extensive headlining and supporting tours across the US, Canada, and the UK.

In March of 2013, Lydia released Devil, produced by Colby Wedgeworth (The Maine, This Century), as a follow up to 2012’s Acoustics EP. The band toured in support of the record, then Lydia re-released Devil in a deluxe version shortly thereafter.

In September of 2015, Lydia released their latest full length Run Wild – coproduced by Aaron Marsh (of Copeland) and Colby Wedgeworth. The band embarked on a headlining run with support from Turnover, Seahaven, and The Technicolors. The band has earned press coverage by many reputable press sources over the years including Alternative Press, Absolute Punk, idobi radio, Guitar World, and more. Lydia’s most recent music video, for “When It Gets Dark Out” off of Run Wild, has been picked up by major media outlets MTV, AXS TV, and Yahoo Music to name a few. The band plans to continue to tour on the success of Run Wild.

Lydia is Leighton Antelman, Matt Keller, and Justin Camacho.

Howdy,

We are Jared & The Mill. All of us were born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, and we still call it home today. When we first got started in the summer of 2011 we just wanted to play some music with our best buds, have a few shows, and have a good time. Jared and Michael had been buddies and playing music together since they were kids, and after they met up with another childhood musical duo, Josh Morrin and Larry Gast III, they realized they needed a bass player, so along came Larry's pal Chuck Morris III. Some months later, Jared ran into Gabe Hall Rodrigues, a local accordion and keys player at a coffee shop. Gabe joined, and as it goes we were soon hammering along in the local scene, playing alongside the bands of new friends and old throughout Arizona. The wheels kept turning, and before we knew it we had over two years of touring under our boots; playing in the living rooms, dive bars, venues, theaters, and even arenas of this big ol' country of our's alongside fellow upcoming bands, and with some of the biggest acts we had always looked up to.

Playing for fifty people one night in a smokey bar, and the very next night opening up and playing for eighteen thousand in an arena was inspiring and eye opening to say the least. Opening up for the likes of Zac Brown Band, Barry Gibb, Boy & Bear, Run River North, Della Mae, Cake, Joe Pug, Horse Feathers, Flogging Molly, The Killers, Allen Stone and others while touring alongside bands just getting their start like us was a real honor. We certainly gained invaluable experience from all those shows and all those trials, but something else happened out there on the road for us, something we have a hard time explaining, but anyone who's spent some time out there on the interstate understands; we became not just friends, but family.

Being out there changed our lives, it changed how we thought about things, it changed how we wrote about things. Those miles molded our music and molded our souls and it made our bond even stronger. Life gives to you and it takes from you, and we have written about that give, and that take. We've written about getting older, about those friends and those loved ones and those things that never leave and about those that do; about those sweet things and those bitter things, and that struggle to keep the course as you try your best to carve yourself into a good man. We have written about our desert home we so very often miss. Our music has been called, compared and regarded by a number of different names and genres, and we've been influenced and shaped by many different events and people, but more than anything, we'd like to think that some shred of the Southwest -- of our home -- can be found in the heart of our music.

It ain't blues and it ain't country. It ain't bluegrass and it ain't indie rock. It's something in-between like most things here in the Southwest, and that's just the way we like it. So here we are, with a new EP to record and a busy year ahead. We've got some new tunes and a sound that has grown, and we're eager as hell to share it with all of you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for listening.


We'll see you down the road,


Jared & The Mill
