Artist Info



Either a sucker punch square in the face or extreme elevation can cause a nosebleed. In essence, this phenomenon occurs at the lowest of low moments and during the highest of high moments. MisterWives examine both ends of this spectrum in their music. The platinum-certified Los Angeles-based quintet—Mandy Lee [vocals], Etienne Bowler [drums, production], Marc Campbell [guitar], Mike Murphy [keyboards], and William Hehir [bass]—absorb life’s ups and downs and recalibrate them in the form of snappy alternative rock anthems underlined by unexpectedly hip-shaking rhythms and identifiable tattoo-worthy lyrics.


They meet everyone in the middle of these extremes on their fourth full-length offering, Nosebleeds [Resilient Little Records/Photo Finish Records].


“The title encompasses multiple meanings,” Mandy notes. “There’s the physical aspect of taking relentless punches and visibly showing the effects. There’s another aspect of being up high outside of the world. We’re exploring all of these sides. I tried to be vulnerable and raw about my experience. As a kid, music was my escape and my safe space. At a really tumultuous time, I needed to write and feel excited about music once more. It was cathartic for what I’d been through.”


“The theme is fitting in terms of how we started,” Etienne adds. “We had no band or shows, but we had an excitement about making music and dreaming of what was going to happen. Not matter what stage you’re at, this excitement helps you get to the next level. A decade later, the same innocence returned to us.”


Back in 2012, MisterWives came to life around a spirit of collaboration. The push-and-pull between the unpredictable soundscapes and Mandy’s emotionally charged delivery defined their signature style across albums such as Our Own House [2015], Connect the Dots [2017], and Superbloom [2020]. The latter garnered critical acclaim from NYLON, PAPER, DuJour,, and MTV, to name a few. Tallying over half-a-billion streams total on their catalog, “Reflections” notably went platinum, and “Our Own House” reached gold status. Emerging as a fiery live presence, they toured alongside everyone from TWENTY ONE PILOTS and Panic! At The Disco to WALK THE MOON and Thirty Seconds To Mars in addition to selling out headline jaunts of their own.


Over the course of the last three years,  Mandy and Etienne endured the dissolution of friendships, a split from their label, and the uncertainty of the Global Pandemic. So, they hunkered down in Etienne’s Pasadena studio and poured all of these experiences and emotions into what would become Nosebleeds. At the same time, they launched their own Resilient Little Records and struck up a partnership with original label home Photo Finish.


“When we started out, we were recording in Etienne’s closet after our double shifts at restaurant jobs,” recalls Mandy. “It wasn’t for the sake of success or having a career; it was because we loved music. After we really got into Nosebleeds, the new music brought us back to why we started in the first place.”


“There were a lot of full circle moments,” Etienne agrees. “We hit the reset button and were able to move forward.”


Bursting at the seams with creativity, they tore into the next chapter with “Out Of Your Mind” in 2023. Powered up by a distorted riff, venomous verses, and a disarmingly catchy chant, PAPER immediately hailed it as “a bloodthirsty breakup diatribe, and Atwood Magazine promised, “MisterWives have entered a new era, and like always, we’re here for it.


“‘Out Of Your Mind’ was an unapologetic response to the combination of all the people who told me I wasn’t good enough and things weren’t going to work out,” she admits. “This was me not giving up and showing resilience in the face of adversity. As women, we’re taught to be polite, small, and palatable—something for everyone. I don’t want to be something for everyone; it’s an impossible goal I’m unlearning, and this album was a great lesson in trusting myself and my truth without needing external validation or approval.”


Meanwhile, the title track and single “Nosebleeds” fuses a thick bassline and airy guitar to a dancefloor-ready groove. Mandy’s intonation flutters between an attitude-laden hook and swooning synth-laden bridge as she snarls, “I’m up in the nosebleeds, I’m down in the seats, I see a thousand faces that look just like me. It spirals out on a smoldering send-off, “Wondering what it might be like, just for one night, I didn’t care what they all think.


“I love the realization of it,” she smiles. “You think your experience is so unique and you’re the only one who feels like you do. However, the song puts you in an arena. When you look around, you see a crowd just like you—which is beautiful.”


Elsewhere, neon keys and warbling spacey sonics augment her vivid lyricism with otherworldly energy on “End of My Rope.”


Mandy goes on, “‘End Of My Rope’ was written at the end of the album where we wanted absolute freedom and escapism from the trenches of life both personally and collectively. While stepping into the light to dance yourself free isn’t going to solve all your problems, allowing yourself to still have joy as an act of rebellion in the face of hard times is vital to our existence and what everyone deserves.” 


On the finale “Ultraviolet,” delicately plucked acoustic guitar sways beneath a pensive and poetic denouement. “It was an intense way to end the record,” Etienne says. “We’re constantly working on being happy, and it’s an endless struggle. It’s not just ‘happily ever after; it keeps going.”

Nevertheless, MisterWives are there for you.


“For me, this band is absolute self-expression,” Mandy leaves off. “I think it translates to the amazing people who support our music. Whether you’re at your happiest or saddest or somewhere in the middle, the show will always be a safe and celebratory space to be your authentic self and a reminder that you’re not alone.”



joan (Alan Benjamin Thomas and Steven Rutherford) have spent the past few years building their musical empire, single by single, tour date by tour date, with the past three years being landmarks for them. Their debut EP, 2019’s ‘portra’,  followed by 2020’s ‘cloudy EP’ and the reimagined re-releases of many of those songs into the “partly cloudy EP” that same year led them to the most recent ‘wave era’ which saw new singles of their trademark alt-pop bops, tinged with the sweetest hint of 90’s R&B influences landing on the first Thursday of each month throughout the majority of 2021 alternating into the building of two dueling EP’s individually titled ‘hi’ and ‘bye’ also described collectively as “wave” They are excited to soon announce the anticipated next chapter of release plans.

These consistent releases have established joan as a constant streaming artist with well over 90 million streams and over a million listeners a month across streaming platforms. 

The guys have spent much of the past 3 years (save for a specific period in 2020 we dont like to talk about) on the road with major US and international tours supporting the likes of The Aces, COIN, Bloc Party and Jeremy Zucker, as well as playing to fans across Asia with huge headline shows and festivals in the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore and Hong Kong.  Early 2020 saw them playing to sold out crowds across the US on their first headline tour. Their virtual cloudy release show in August 2020 boasted thousands of ticket sales from fans who tuned into their livestream. 

Juliana Madrid

Juliana "Jules" Madrid is a 21 year old singer/songwriter hailing from Dallas, Texas.  Madrid combines elements of folk, alt, and pop to write sardonic, coming-of-age tales that are relatable yet uniquely her. Jules started in music at the young age of 9, learning guitar at the encouragement of her parents.  Soon after, she enrolled in a local program called School of Rock. There, she began to find her voice while realizing she also had a knack for songwriting too, using music as a creative outlet to express herself.
Since then, Jules and her guitar [which she named “Earl”] have been inseparable, working tirelessly to refine her craft. She performs live anywhere she can and spends the rest of her time writing emotionally driven songs that touch on themes of relationships, religion, and growing up. Her musical influences span across the musical landscape including Fiona Apple, Patsy Cline, Elliot Smith, and Brandon Flowers. Initially writing alone in her bedroom, Jules recently linked up with GRAMMY nominated songwriter and producer, Benjamin Ruttner (1/2 of The Knocks), to work on her debut music project.
