The Suffers
The Suffers
The Suffers are Houston’s award-winning 10-piece ensemble that have redefined the sound of Gulf Coast Soul. Established in 2011, The Suffers’ lineup was curated by bassist Adam Castaneda and vocalist/keyboardist Pat Kelly, who brought on trumpet player Jon Durbin, trombonist Michael Razo, guitarist Kevin Bernier, percussionist Jose “Chapy” Luna, and drummer/vocalist Nick Zamora. Jazz saxophonist Cory Wilson and guitarist/vocalist Alex Zamora filled out the rhythm section, while frontwoman Kam Franklin topped off the group with soaring vocals.

Last year brought the band to new heights, as they played 150+ shows across North America, visited NPR in Washington, DC for a Tiny Desk Concert, and made their national television debut on Late Show With David Letterman. This year, the band officially released their much anticipated self-titled album in February and performed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and Jimmy Kimmel Live. The Suffers have quickly progressed from packing Houston venues to accepting invitations for featured performances at notable festivals and events, while remaining a local Houston favorite, accepting 20 Houston Press Music Awards in the last three years.

The Suffers’ album is now available on iTunes, Amazon & Spotify.
The Far East
The Far East
Brooklyn's THE FAR EAST appeared in 2013 with their single "Youthman" immediately gaining recognition and airplay from BBC Radio's David Rodigan. The Far East pull inspiration from foundation rhythm and a youth spent in Punk Rock; bringing new, heavy magic to an old sound. Disillusioned with modern life and digital noise, The Far East immerse themselves completely in the often forgotten beauty of Rocksteady, Roots, and classic Dancehall. In the fall of 2016, The Far East set out on a month long, national tour supporting veteran 2Tone legends The Specials and played to sold out crowds across the US (including Riot Fest Chicago). In honor of their 2016 tour the group released a second single entitled Can We Make It Up featuring veteran reggae guitarist Andy Bassford and produced by the talented New York production house Channel Tubes.
