Marcus Alan Ward
Electronic | Cleveland OH

Product of a cultural upbringing, the self taught multi-instrumentalist spent his middle and high school days in and out of bands, later discovering and being exposed to jazz, soul, hip hop, electronic music, and more obscure sounds in college. Ward began crafting music as Freeze-Tag in May of 2011 and debuted his project with dance based single "Tidal Wave" in September 2011. Simultaneously giving himself and the world a birthday present, his debut EP WLDFLWR_HNY was released on his birthday in January 2012, garnering early buzz locally, nationally, and internationally. Freeze-Tag solidified his sound and building buzz with the release of ambient rnb/post hip-hop hybrid the "Eskimo" EP in April of 2013.

Currently at work on his debut album, the artist remains influenced by a large range of prog rock, electronic, soul, hip-hop, and avant-garde music. Freeze-Tag continues to pursue honest artistic expression and spread his dubbed "prisma-chromatic", futuristic soul sound. The Midwest artist masterfully combines light electronics with sensual R&B flavors.

Flint Eastwood
Little Rock AR United States

Flint Eastwood is a 5 piece indie rock band with a rapper front man. Guitarist, Marcus Meier, bassist Tyler Inmon and keyboardist, Jon-Michael Harper had all been playing together since they were kids. Striving to just have fun, they never took playing too seriously. In 2009 Marcus Meier formed a ambient rock band, Inner City Lights, with drummer Philip Cottingham. Inner City Lights broke up in 2011 but Meier and Cottingham stayed close musically, playing in various side-projects. For a year, Meier worked as a substitute teacher at his old high school in Bryant Arkansas. While substituting, Meier met 18 year old student, Malik Flint, future frontman of Flint Eastwood. Flint told Meier that he was in need of a guitarist and drummer for an upcoming hip hop gig with his group, Weekend Warriors. Meier informed former drummer, Cottingham, of the gig and after playing a shows with Flint, Meier, Cottingham and Flint decided to form their own rock/hip hop group together. In need of a bassist, Meier contacted cousin/childhood friend Tyler Inmon. Gladly accepting the offer, the band then thought it wouldn't hurt to find a keyboardist, to add more hip hop sounds to the rock group. So Meier and Inmon thought Jon-Michael Harper would be a perfect fit. Members of Flint Eastwood vary in age from 20 to 26. All memebers coming from slightly different musical backgrounds, Flint Eastwood creates a sound that is fresh and yet familiar to all crowds.
