THE WLDLFE, BETCHA, AQUASHADE
THE WLDLFE is an indie-pop band from Anderson, IN formed in 2015 by frontman, Jansen Hogan, and few of his college friends – Jason Boucouras, Jack Crane, Geoff Jones – later joined by his younger brother Carson Hogan. The band’s first two releases, “New” and “ILY”, were a grassroots success receiving positive reviews from indie publications, receiving airplay on over 90 college radio stations, and even receiving tweets from Hollywood A-Listers Abigail Breslin and Chloe Grace Moretz. The band’s first full length album “I’m Not Worried Anymore” was released at the end of 2018 whose music received great write-ups in Billboard Magazine, Live Nation’s Ones to Watch, Earmilk and many others with its lead single “I Don’t Mind” being featured in Spotify’s coveted New Music Friday. Live Nation said “THE WLDLFE has an alt-indie sound packed full of striking lyrics and decadent instrumentation. The vocals of frontman Jansen Hogan are effortless in themselves, but the electropop effects used on his voice make them pure nectar to the ear.” Having opened for Halsey, COIN, and VHS Collection, and now with over 12M cumulative steams, THE WLDLFE is poised for 2019 to be their breakout year.
The members of AQUASHADE, an Atlanta-based pop rock band, display a musicianship and a knack for catchy songwriting beyond their years. When brothers Atticus and Luke Roness joined forces for a one-off performance in 2016, they discovered an instant sound that was undeniable. Now with 2 EP’s, radioplay, and a killer live show, these boys are poised to take the world by storm.
Irreplaceable chemistry transpires between four musicians. The tried-and-true configuration of a four-piece rock band unlocks an endless array of possibilities. Nashville-based Betcha not only recognizes such limitlessness, but they also leverage it. Ultimately, the quartet—Charlie Greene [[[vocals, guitar], Ben Booth [[[lead guitar], Taylor Dubray [[[bass, keys], and Chase Wofford [[[drums]—breathe new life into this traditional ideal. On their 2019 debut for Atlantic Records, expansive vibes encompass sweetly stoned rock, electronic-backed alternative, and punchy pop anthems, evoking the power of four.
