Walker Lukens
Walker Lukens
Walker Lukens has been called ‘one of the best songwriters in Texas’ (Free Press Houston.) The Austinbased, Houston-bred singer, multi-instrumentalist has been called ‘wonderfully inventive’ (NPR World Cafe,) a ‘non-sexually intimidating version of Prince’ (Austin Chronicle,) and a ‘veteran balladeer with sudden indie rock ambitions’ (Indy Week.) Walker thinks its important that you realize his name is not Walter.

In 2013, he released his first full length record, Devoted. It received praise from outlets like NPR’s All Songs Considered, American Songwriter, Austin American Statesman, Austin Chronicle, and Billboard and took Lukens and his backing band, The Side Arms, all over the US.

After meeting Spoon drummer Jim Eno in a bar, Walker & The Side Arms started recording new music at with him at his studio, Public Hi-Fi. Their first collaboration, ‘Every Night,’ has been streamed over a million times now. Their second collaboration, ‘Lifted’ from Never Understood EP (Modern Outsider) spent 8 weeks on the specialty commercial radio charts and garnered Walker spots at festivals across the country.

Their 3rd collaboration Ain’t Got A Reason EP premiered on Paste in April 2017.
Ramonda Hammer
Ramonda Hammer
Ramonda Hammer is a Los Angeles grunge band whose name comes from a lady featured on the early 2000s reality television show "Cheaters." The show is funny and sad, kind of how frontwoman Devin Davis writes her songs. Ramonda Hammer is "like an alternate Nineties where L7 was the biggest band in the world," Rolling Stone remarked in an editors-pick review of their latest release, 2017's "Destroyers," on the New Professor label.

"Davis is the queen of grunge” says KSPC – she's a hurricane-force singer whose lyrics and melodies are raw, honest and to the point. The other three-fourths of RH – bassist Andy Hengl, lead guitarist Justin Geter, and drummer Mark Edwards – turn these songs into full anthems, "crunchy, grungey, no-B.S. ’90s-style alt-rock” according to Buzzbands.LA.

The band self-released their debut mini-album, "Whatever That Means," in the spring of 2016, and it was hailed by Impose Magazine, EARMILK, PureVolume, and Fuse TV. Then they signed to indie label New Professor for the followup single “Zombie Sweater," gaining recognition from BrooklynVegan and She Shreds. RH was named one of L.A.'s hardest-working bands of 2016 by Oh My Rockness after their relentless local shows and tours. The five-song EP "Destroyers" came out in August 2017 on New Professor, and the band is prepping a full-length to release in 2018.
