Gone By Daylight: Born from pop-punk roots and a Rock n’ Roll spirit, Gone By Daylight incorporates a magnetic voice and pop-rock song writing, brimming with hooks and rock riffs. Influences include (but not limited to) Third Eye Blind, Guns n’ Roses, Blink 182, Tom Petty, and of course, The Beatles.
The band is comprised of born front man and song writer, Eric Paquette (Lead Singer, Guitar); master-thinker and fret shedder, Jeff Lynch (Lead Guitar, Vocals); rhythm-locked to perfection with his drummer brother and two revolvers tattooed across his chest, Jordan King (Bass, Vocals); and the no-bio-can-ever-do-him-or-his-stage-presence-justice, Shaanan King (Drums). The band solidified this line up in January of 2011, and has found management with John O’Leary of JWorks Management. Shortly after, the group inked a Production deal with Universal Publishing and EMI Recording artists, Kurtis John and Michael Nadeau. The team has been on an all-out writing and recording spree, completing upwards of 30+ songs between the producer’s Los Angeles and Connecticut studios.

Easy Tiger: From the ashes of several local New Jersey rock bands comes Easy Tiger, a quartet who fuses rock sensibility, solid song-writing, and a love for ear-catching melodies. Formed in the Spring of 2009, Easy Tiger are newcomers to the scene, but their experiences in music stem back about ten years. Easy Tiger's influences range from everything from U2 and Jimmy Eat World to Michael Jackson. The current lineup are finishing up their debut EP, crafting arena-ready rock songs that are just as personal as they are accessible to anyone's ears they touch.
The Glorious Veins: They came together with a mutual appreciation for all kinds of styles and a predilection for blending these influences to create a sound of their own. The band’s singer and primary songwriter is Paul Pangman. Born and raised in Wisconsin, Paul showed a love and affinity for music from a very young age. Paul came to New York at the age of 18 to attend Columbia University, where he picked up the guitar and started writing music. In a few years he wrote well over 100 songs but he needed to find a band to play them. Fortunately for him, that was all about to change. Matt “howlin” Howels, the guitarist, was born and raised in London, England. He taught himself how to play at age 12 and has been blowing minds with his slashing skills ever since. In the UK, he played with many different bands while in college at Southhampton and in London after graduation. In October of 2007, Matt moved to New York City where he immediately fell into the downtown blues scene before joining The GV’s. Lee Grasso, the bassist, was born and raised in Connecticut. Originally a guitar player, Lee found himself playing bass for theGV's after they did a line-up change during August of '08. And last but not least, drummer Wiggy Colmenares. Born and raised in the Philippines, Wiggy started playing the drums in middle school. Music became his passion and he went on to play in many successful Filipino rock bands. He moved to New York City in 2007 with his family and now lives in Queens.
