MisterWives – Mandy Lee (Vocals), Etienne Bowler (Drums), Will Hehir (Bass) – began making music together in late 2012. Lee, the powerhouse vocalist, was born and raised in Queens and acts as the band’s principal songwriter. She studied songwriting and opera at NYC’s only specialized public high school for music and performing arts, laying a foundation for her incredible range and giving her the ability to explore a wide variety of vocal styles. Lee met Hehir through a mutual friend and shortly thereafter was introduced to Bowler, a Bronx native, while the two were working at restaurants a block away from one another in Manhattan. The three shared a mutual love for music and similar aesthetic sensibilities and banded together to form the core of MisterWives. When it came to time to round out the live band, Bowler brought old friends Jesse Blum (Keys/Trumpet/Accordion) and Marc Campbell (Guitar) on board.

They played their first show together in February of 2013 and signed to Photo Finish/Republic shortly after. Although a new band, their sound was focused and self-assured, quickly earning them a slew of blog love, including early nods from Pigeons and Planes, Earmilk, Neon Gold and more. In October, the band hit the road with Half Moon Run on their first national tour. The tour ended with a two triumphant sets at last year’s CMJ before heading out for a six week stint with American Authors & The Royal Concept. They released their debut EP “Reflections” this January and were featured as the first iTunes “Single of the Week” of 2014. The lead single “Reflections” now boasts over 2 million plays on Spotify as the band continue to tour in between writing and recording their much anticipated debut full length album.


On March 10th, HANDSOME GHOST will release their debut EP, STEPS. Since its June release, a demo version of “Blood Stutter” has received almost 7 million Spotify streams and attracted attention from the likes of USA Today who dubbed it, “buzzy,” and declared “No reason to fear this specter.” Heralded as an engaging and enigmatic new musical presence, the indie/alt group, led by Massachusetts native Tim Noyes, signed with Photo Finish and began work on the Steps EP.

Instead of starting from scratch, the group took their demos – recorded in rural Vermont – to Los Angeles where they tapped the production talents of Matt Squire (Ariana Grande, Youngblood Hawke and more). The stark contrast conjures a fascinating crossroads between all-encompassing soundscapes, acoustic instruments, remarkably rapturous R&B beats, and Noyes’ defenseless delivery.
