Levi J released his newest single “Leaving” featuring Taylor Rae last Friday! The song is a heartfelt rock ballad and their two voices blend beautifully together in the chorus. Really impressed with Levi’s songwriting, he has a unique artistic style that’s really his own, which sets his music apart from other singer-songwriters out there. I really hope he has a fruitful career ahead of him as I know how hard he works at everything he does. I can’t wait to hear the next tune!

I’m so excited to see Austin Freeman & The Hard Souls Band release their song “Ain't Hard to Choose" with video footage from them recording at Airship Laboratories and Tea House West. This tune is a guaranteed hit with its catchy hooks and earworm melody. I have a feeling Austin and his band have a big future ahead of them with an arsenal of good songs that appeal to a wide audience. I hope to work with this talented musician and help him and his band achieve more success. Would love to hear what you think of the song, so leave me a comment and share your thoughts!
For all the fans of Skyway View, the band has reemerged on the Bay Area scene today as Frantic Romantic after teasing the new project on social media for the last few weeks.

Follow the band on Spotify or SoundCloud to stay tuned for the releases.

Formed in early 2013, new blues/indie rock trio Fritz Montana have already been making waves and getting noticed by industry folks. Due to a connection through a photography friend, the band met Kirk Harding from Crowd Control Management, manager of The Neighborhood and Little Daylight, who was very impressed with their sound and gave them some guidance on what his label is looking for. The band is a cross between The Black Keys and The Strokes, with a noticeable Jack White feel in the vocals; some even throw Atlas Genius in the mix.
I'm truly excited to be working with Fritz Montana and feel this young band has a lot of potential to make it big. Live 105 Music Director Aaron Axelsen debut their song "Say It So" last Sunday on Soundcheck and received a lot of texts from listeners diggin' it. Fritz Montana is currently in 4th place in Live 105's Favorite Local Band Poll!
I encourage you to check them out and see what everyone's talking about. Plus they're playing The Blank Club on Friday, November 1st, with Kiwi Time and All City Elite, which is a great time to see their live set!

I'm happy to announce San Jose's very own All City Elite has decided to work with me as their band manager! All City Elite, A.C.E.s as it is commonly referred to, is a collaboration between various Bay Area recording artists and musicians who were looking to create an exciting new sound, with broad appeal, but without being confined by specific genre trappings. This, along with an energetic stage performance and a strong focus on the digital distribution of their media, has already led to an impressive fan turn out and overwhelming support from friends, family, and colleagues alike.
Having known Rob Hurtado for years through the Jade of Days friend circuit, I was excited to see him perform with ACE last year when they opened for Filter; a very high-energy show that Pounders were also a part of. This Saturday will be ACE's first time playing a Barb Rocks show and I'm stoked to see this lively band in action once more! In the process of booking ACE for the show, we started chatting about their management needs and it turns out, they were looking for a local manager that could help them get more shows, press coverage, radio airplay, and overall better exposure in Silicon Valley and beyond. Considering I specialize in just that, mostly in the local market, and am a fan of their music, we found that we were a perfect fit to work together. I'm very excited for this new endeavor and look forward to working with such a musically talented group! Help me welcome All City Elite to the growing Barb Rocks "Empire"!
Barb Rocks is proud to announce that she is now working with Cadent, an up-and-coming female-fronted Bay Area band. Cadent features a wonderful blend of rock, pop, alternative base with a touch of R&B vocals that makes them a force to reckon with! With such few female-fronted bands in Northern California, it's refreshing to hear such a mature sound out of the "younger" band with power-house vocals that touch your soul. Currently recording at Castle Ultimate Studios, the band has already released three of their tracks, with plans to release a full album soon. Plus Cadent just placed 3rd in the San Jose edition of Your Music Olympicks after being selected "Editor's Choice" by Your Music Magazine. It is my pleasure to work with such a diverse band that I feel will take the local scene by storm, with hopes they might just be the next Paramore!
