King Washington
King Washington
Saturated in beautiful harmonies and rousing chord progressions alike, the music of King Washington can be described as a throwback to when rock n' roll was a songwriter's game and at the same time praised for its modern sensibility and innovation. It has been compared to Grizzly Bear, REM, Bon Iver, The Talking Heads, Radiohead, Mott The Hoople, Kings of Leon, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Fleet Foxes, Muse, and The Beatles.

King Washington was born in the late 2000’s by a then teenage Tyson Kelly, the son of an artist and a songwriter. Raised in a world of music and creativity, Tyson knew at an early age that he would one day have a band of his own – a band that could be a musical force beyond his imagination. Then he met George.

George Krikes has never lacked for natural ability. From surprising his elementary school mates with his voice to wowing professors at USC with his guitar, he had always been, and possibly will always be, the most musically gifted person in the room. Upon seeing Krikes’ poetry in motion, Kelly knew what his talents could mean for King Washington; two lead singers with complementary musical talents with which to make the world a canvas for their art.

Together, with bassist/vocalist Billy Lee, King Washington’s music has been lauded by critics as “perfectly crafted”, “effortless”, and “unafraid”. Some critics have gone as far imploring their readership to “buy this (King Washington’s albums) at once”.

It's more than the next step in the evolution of indie-rock. It's more than a salute to the music of yesteryear. It is truth forged by skill, kissed by pain, and caressed by love.
The Duskwhales
The Duskwhales
The Duskwhales are a three-piece indie rock band formed in Manassas, Virginia in 2010. Their sound is reminiscent of 60's groups such as The Beatles and The Doors through prominent use of keyboards and memorable vocal harmonies. While incorporating the best elements of their psychedelic roots, the young trio creates a sophisticated style of their own in both studio and live settings. They have shared the stage with national acts Car Seat Headrest,Diane Coffee, Little Green Cars, and Frankie Cosmos, as well as performed to packed audiences across the East Coast. Their latest album Sorrowful Mysteries released in the Spring of 2017.
