Sick of Sarah - http://www.sickofsarah.com

"The women who make up this Minnesota quartet bow at the altar of riot grrls' days gone by while simultaneously thumbing their noses at scowling chick-rock clichés. The songs are as bracing as they are familiar…. For Fans of: The Breeders, Sleater-Kinney" – SPIN MAGAZINE
"It was an absolute treat touring with SOS this year. They are fun loving, open- hearted girls who play irresistible punk infused pop music with a passion that is truly contagious… The girls are hilarious and wild, and have a charisma and chemistry that I found to be utterly charming..... I think you will too!" -Susanna Hoffs (The Bangles)
"Sick of Sarah is the real deal. This is a true working band who sing write and play for real. They are also cute and funny. They are my friends and they rock." -Nancy Wilson (Heart)

The Last Year - http://thelastyear.net
Hailing from Baltimore, The Last Year is an alternative rock band. The act stems from an idea of front-girl Niki Barr, on vocals, and Scott Ensign, playing bass and synth. The pair, complemented by drummer, BJ Kerwin, and guitarist, Scott Griffith, approach their music with a kaleidoscopic attitude, embracing diverse influences and refusing to give in to conventions. Having toured over 30 countries on three continents, The Last Year is no stranger to the stage. With their impressive light show, guided by Barr's coy, airy vocals that she expertly transforms into powerful rock melodies, and Ensign's layers of synth growls, the show is a spectacle and a must-see.

The Last Year recently teamed up with Shanachie Entertainment in order to release a brand-new EP of new material. Describing the new release as "limitless" with "everything from buzz saw synth to airy atmospheric ambience to 80s drum sequence loops", the group says that their latest songs come from the dark place Barr is almost known for and showcase the band's perfect blend of natural and synthetic sounds.

The Last Year's EP has been warmly received by fans and critics alike, especially lead single "Sugar", a tune that bridges the gap between the darkness of Joy Division and the infectious, radio-friendly indie rock hooks of bands like The Temper Trap; spicing it all up with female leading vocals that wouldn't feel out of place on a Garbage record. "Sugar" is currently receiving spins on HFS 97.5 Baltimore's Rock Alternative, Baltimore's 98 Rock, 98.7 WTMD, Phoenix's KWSS 93.9, and SiriusXM's Alt Nation.
