HUNNY
The Southern California six-piece was formed in early 2014 by a group of long time friends and musicians. Hunny’s charismatic sound draws from a blend of 1980’s post-punk and their undying love for Prince.

HUNNY worked with producer/engineer Doug Boehm (Girls, Tokyo Police Club, Christopher Owens) on the new single "Cry for Me" which garnered more than 200,000 plays in it's first 2 months on Soundcloud, charting on the Top "Most Popular Tracks" on Hype Machine. The band also gained local support from KROQ where the single hit #1 on KROQ’s Locals Only Show. Hunny has played sold out shows across the US including hometown dates at The Satellite and The Troubadour.
HUNNY is Jason Yarger, Jake Goldstein, Jacob Munk, Gregory Horne, Kevin Grimmett, and Joey Anderson.

Wax Idols

Wax Idols' third album, American Tragic, is not only a deeply personal record, but a chiefly independent one: As a songwriter and true multi-instrumentalist, Hether Fortune wrote and recorded everything but the drums on American Tragic — a feat only bolstered by the album’s compelling performances and meticulous execution, but a little known fact nonetheless. Co-produced by Fortune and Monte Vallier (Weekend, Mark Eitzel, The Soft Moon, Vaniish), the only other player on this record is drummer Rachel Travers. But it’s also a meditation on an idea that Fortune has been playing with over the entire arc of Wax Idols’ discography, and that is the notion that personhood is neither fixed nor consistent: We can be independent and attached, in need of discipline and desire, or even fully autonomous with a little bit of help. As Fortune points out here, even America, for all its symbolism and mythic value, also rests in tragedy.

The touring band includes, alongside Fortune & drummer Rachel Travers, guitarist Peter Wallner (Whisper), bassist Marisa Prietto & sometimes keyboardist/guitarist Keven Tecon (Vaniish).
