American Authors
We express our experiences as a shared unit , through music and an agreement of sound. No one always gets along, but with lows come highs and fighting always has an end. we accept struggle and are passionate about the lives we lead. We create the music that comes naturally to us and we're not afraid of change. We have all made changes for better and for worse but whats done is done and we are thrilled with the present. We all have a story to tell and whether it's audible, visual, silence or motion, we cant hide the fact that we are constantly creating new moments to share. We are American Authors from Brooklyn, New york.
Makeout Room
Makeout Room
The four members of Makeout Room came together in the spring of 2012 to produce enchanting and ethereal audio frequencies that disarm both genders and seduce the most protected of hearts. With a wide range of influences from The Jesus and Mary Chain to Brian Wilson, Makeout Room produces moving and tender-hearted art rock tunes to bring people together, and of course, get them to make out.

Samuel Cooper (of Sunglasses)
Samuel Cooper and Brady Keehn are Sunglasses, musicians whose art school backgrounds and mashup pop sensibilities combine to create something altogether unique.The duo met while in school at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Cooper was working on his senior thesis, a musical film noir, when a friend recommended that Keehn, a sound production major, assist him in tweaking and mixing the soundtrack. The partnership continued on after the project, with Cooper drawing heavily from Brian Wilson and Phil Spector while writing and recording original material and Keehn utilizing his knowledge of the studio as an instrument to perfect the tracks. The video for "Whiplash" from their Lefse released self-titled debut EP went viral, and the duo was met with praise from the likes of Pitchfork and Stereogum, which called Sunglasses a "Band to Watch." After time spent in a Northern Georgia lake house and brief stints in Maryland and DC, Sunglasses have now relocated to Brooklyn and are using their new home to build a reputation for energetic and semi-improvisational performances that mix samples with live instrumentation. With music inspirationally diverse and vibrant, Sunglasses continue to produce hook laden shape-shifting tracks of cascading sound.
