The Band CAMINO Rocked Sold Out Webster Hall Show

Hailing from Memphis, TN, The Band CAMINO have been on a roll since dropping two smash hits, “See Through” and “Daphne Blue” back in May, on top of an already impressive catalogue of  independent releases since forming in 2015.  After signing a major deal with Elektra back in May and putting in the groundwork of building their already widespread fanbase, The Band CAMINO are poised to be the next big name in rock.

Comprised of co-frontment Jeffery Jordan and Spencer Stewert, bassist Graham Rowell, and drummer Garrison Burgess, these guys craft melodies and hooks that stick with you weeks after your first listen.  Each track is sickly sweet in the best way possible and simply addicting.

The Band CAMINO are in the middle of some of the biggest headline shows of their lives and that includes a sold out stop at NYC’s newly renovated Webster Hall earlier this month. Front to back, New York showed up and got off their feet – literally, the floor was shaking as the guys barrelled through the hits and deep cuts all night long.

The energy in the room skyrocketed from the first note of the final track from their “tryhard” EP, “Break Me” straight through “2/14,” “Fool Of Myself,” and the subdued “I Spend Too Much Time In My Room.”  They gave the crowd everything from their arsenal and you can tell they left everything on the stage that night.

Closing out the set with “Haunted,” the crowd sang along to every word all night long and could feel the collective heavy sigh as the night came to an end.  The encore really sent the night out with a bang including “What I Want” and their runaway hit “Daphne Blue” leaving the crowd wanting more even after the house lights came up.

The Band CAMINO’s ability to tap into so many different levels of emotion in each song is a true journey many bands struggle with even years into their careers.  They’ve hit that nail on the head early on and we can’t wait to see where it takes them.

Fly By Midnight Release New Track, “I Need You More Than You Want Me”

Fly By Midnight have been pounding the pavement, churning out hit after hit, as well as writing for other aritsts but Justin Bright and Slavo are dropping a brand new track that’s going to extend Summer just a little bit longer.  “I Need You More Than You Want Me” follows the duo’s signature retro pop sound and dabbles in disco with spacey gang vocals filling out the track.

This song follows previous singles “Lovely” and “You Belong,” both premiering at #1 on Apple’s Hot Pop Chart which is super promising and an exciting achievement!  “I Need You More Than You Want Me” is off their upcoming sophomore full length, so stay tuned for more new music from Fly By Midnight, coming soon!

When asked about the new music, “The first few singles we’ve released from this next wave of music have felt soft conceptually. We’ve really been touching mostly on romance & admiration, but we’ve definitely experienced some let downs this past year as well,” says Justin. “Coming to a realization that you want a person more than they want you is something we’ve both been through, but never brought to the landscape of a song before,” Slavo adds.

Listen to “I Need You More Than You Want Me” now!

Fly By Midnight are set to open for LOOTE on two special coast to coast showcases in October and this is a match made in heaven! Both NYC bred groups are paving their own ways through the pop landscape.  Check out the dates below and grab your tickets while you can.

Bryce Vine Celebrates “Carnival” Release With Sold Out Webster Hall Show

Bryce Vine dropped his first major label album, “Carnival,” on July 26th and celebrated with a handful of shows including a stop at the legendary Webster Hall in NYC.  The sold out show doubled as a hometown show for Bryce, who was born in New York just a few blocks from the venue.

IMG_2316 copy

From the opening song, “Love Is A Blessing,” the crowd could tell they were in for an unforgettable night.  Everyone was singing along loudly throughout the show, from Bryce’s older material to brand new tracks from “Carnival.”    The singing was so loud at times Bryce just let the crowd take over and soaked in the moment, remarking that at times it was so loud it  was “almost irresponsible.”

Bryce closed out the set with his current hit, “La La Land,” which had the already energetic crowd in a frenzy.  He hopped off stage to get even closer to the fans but ended up landing badly and spraining his ankle!   You wouldn’t have had any idea what happened, as Bryce kept on performing and ended the song without missing the beat.

He triumphantly came back out after a short break, telling the crowd he “thought he broke his ankle” but that he couldn’t leave without giving his full set.   Bryce finished the show sitting in a chair on stage, still going just as hard as he had been throughout the night.  The encore included his smash “Drew Barrymore,” “Sour Patch Kids,” and most fittingly “Guilty Pleasure.”    It was a hella fun night and we’re sure Bryce and the entire crowd would do it all again!
