The Vindys
The Vindys
Since 2013, THE VINDYS have become one of the most sought after, premier bands in the Northeast Ohio area with their unique blend of pop, jazz, and rock. They have been described as “a vibrant slice of vintage pop theatre.” (Music Connection Magazine) and “slinky, sultry, and jazzy” (Guy D’Astolfo, The Vindicator). Through the incorporation of multiple genres into one cohesive sound, The Vindys have the ability to appeal to a wide audience. Their versatility and incomparable style is one of the many reasons why The Vindys are a rarity amongst other groups. Their professional sound, as well as alluring stage presence and magnetic charisma, is supported by the band’s background and expertise in music performance, education, and production.
Personnel include Jackie Popovec on lead vocals and guitar, John Anthony on guitar and harmony vocals, Ed Davis on drums and harmony vocals, Scott Boyer on bass, and Rick Deak on guitar and harmony vocals. All are classically trained musicians from the distinguished schools of Capital University Conservatory of Music, Dana School of Music, Slippery Rock University, and Mike Curb College of Music. The Vindys combine their skills and experiences resulting in a depth and maturity in their music that is intricate, yet relatable.
By Light We Loom
By Light We Loom
"By Light We Loom is a brand new husband-wife indie-pop duo from Cleveland that writes beautiful, mysterious pop tunes drenched in atmospheric guitars and soaring vocals...(their) mysterious brand of mother-earth-pop is bound to earn itself legions of followers." - Aputumpu

As a husband and wife team, they spent the better part of a decade leading the indie-folk band Bethesda as it toured the midwest, highlighted by stops at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as well as Bonnaroo, CMJ, Bunbury, MidPoint Music Fests as well as sharing the stage with bands such as Mates of State, Sharon Van Etten, First Aid Kit, and many more.

Following the end of Bethesda, Shanna (vocals & loops) and Eric (guitars & vocals) found that their appetite for making and sharing music was far from satisfied. Armed with the power of loop technology and the excitement of a new challenge, they went to work crafting a wholly new and unique sound that engages the listener and beckons you to sing along.

Even in its short duration (founded in August 2014), By Light We Loom has lined up a notable touring schedule, highlighted by stops at the Midpoint Music Festival, Brite Winter Fest, NEO Cycle Music Festival, The Heights Music Hop, and opening for notable indie acts, including The Mynabirds, Twin Forks, The Kin, Kopecky, Matt Pond PA, Frontier Ruckus, and more.

Excited about the new direction, By Light We Loom immediately entered the studio and came out with their debut single "The Ignition" followed by the release of their debut EP, "The Ignition," in May 2015, which has received outstanding reviews and received local radio play. With plans for the release of a double EP in 2015 and many show dates, By Light We Loom promises to have much more in store for fans and newcomers alike in 2015.
Coup de Grace
Coup de Grace
Combining the prodigious talents of Nick Reese, Doug Gallo, and David "Tig" Tigelman, the indie psych-rock trio with a strong jam influence out of Akron Ohio, Coup De Grace brings a final blow to your mind. Their music fuses the energy of powerful lyrics with upbeat vibes, killing the pain of the daily grind and leaving listeners in good spirits.
Coup De Grace is proud to announce their first album “Walk In Light” will be available March 3rd 2017 everywhere. Recorded and mastered at Central 8 Studios, “Walk In Light” is an ambitious first step for Coup De Grace. Leaving nothing on the table, the three piece strives to take the listener on a musical journey with hints of Radiohead, Tame Impala, as well as The Beatles. Blending strong song-writing with lush layers and an experimental flair, “Walk In Light” was engineered and mastered by Nathan Doutt, co-owner of Central 8 Studios.
Lead guitarist and vocalist Nick Reese has a lush history of playing in several Ohio bands, often filling in multiple roles where needed. He and, Coup De Grace drummer, Tig have been playing music together for over 10 years. Their story started in Akron, where they helped form the band The George Harrison Ford Explorers. Nick later joined up with and went on tour with Simeon Soul Charger, filling in on everything from keys to guitar. All the while, Tig continued to work on side projects with Nick. Simeon eventually moved to Germany to continue their musical growth. Nick Reese then joined the high energy progressive jam rock group Aliver Hall, touring out to Colorado multiple times and playing countless festivals.
In December of 2015, Nick chose to focus his energy on songwriting and composition, so he and Tig rejoined to form the group Coup De Grace. They also joined forces with bassist Doug Gallo.
Coup De Grace's debut album "Walk In Light" is out now and streaming on Spotify, Bandcamp, iTunes and more.
