Just Plain Great Music...
For a group with a complex list of influences, Mindil Beach is simply named after a coastline in Darwin, Australia. Through the skillful blending of rock, hip hop, funk and folk, they've created sonic cocktail that is equal parts soul, adrenaline and swagger. Their diversity of appeal has enabled them to play alongside a wide variety of notable acts (Sam Roberts, USS, Bedouin Soundclash). But no matter the size of the venue, every Mindil Beach show feels like you're dancing in your living room.
After the release of their sophomore record, It Might Take Long (2013), Mindil Beach found themselves at a crossroads. Local success of the album's lead single, Smoking Gun, served as a springboard for national exposure, and they opted to leave Vancouver Island for a more nomadic lifestyle. After spending nearly a year in an RV, touring coast to coast, Mindil Beach have now put down roots in Vancouver and are working on their third full length album.
The band’s passion for music goes hand in hand with their passion for the environment. In 2011, the boys founded The Jellyfish Project, an environmental initiative targeting Canadian high school and middle school students to generate awareness about ocean sustainability, climate change and environmental stewardship. The program has been presented in more than 100 schools to over 50,000 students, and has partnered with the Vancouver Aquarium and the David Suzuki Foundation.
They've been called “a group that can fly the flag for Canadian rock overseas” and they intend to do so. Mindil Beach are currently touring their latest release, The Sweet Tea EP, which features the single, Love Like Mine.

This Band Has A Mean Story To Tell In Music & An AMAZING SOUND.
Sometimes a band comes along and you just think this will be some hard rocking loudness, but when this band hits the stage, it's an amazing sound with a different kind of sound. A sound that is hard, soft and intense. They have a style that will shock you, their music is kind of mean and it's a truth in the story that sells their music. Songs like "PART OF YOU" Is just a well written song that has a sound all it's own, other songs like "ADDICTION" is an awesome song that will have you listening to the words.
Downsiid was formed in 2000 by drummer Rich ‘B.rich’ Burgos in Killeen,Texas. The band entered the Central Texas music scene as a 4 piece that was a lot harder sounding and rougher than the Downsiid fan’s know today. The band originally was made up mostly of U.S Army soldiers stationed at Ft. Hood, Texas. B.rich started looking to make some line-up changes.
Singer Jason ‘String’ Atwood joined the band after a chance meeting with ‘B.rich’ at a local Tattoo Shop that String owned, and the voice of Downsiid was found. In 2003 DJ Akira MC joined the band bringing Hip-Hop, turntablism, samples and a hype man into the mix. Lennis Hayes and Jeff ‘Spanish’ C. complete the band on bass and guitar respectively. Both members are veterans of the local music scene and complete the hard partyin’, harder rockin’, tear the roof off your club Texas band known as DownsiiD.
Downsiid has enjoyed independent success with their releases: ‘Karma: The Rebirth’ and ‘The Evolution of Ghetto Rock'. They have toured the country on self funded tours to include their annual indie fest ‘The Siid Show: Rock N Roll Circus‘, which is in it’s 5th year and now includes 8 Texas cities, “Girls, Grills and Guitars Tour” and “The Freedom Tour” which took them to towns neighboring military bases throughout the South.
To date DownsiiD has sold over 10,000 copies of ‘The Evolution of Ghetto Rock’ and are preparing for the release of the highly anticipated follow up, ‘Life of Lies’ featuring tracks by Andy Waldek (Daughtry, Earth to Andy), production by Roy Z (Judas Priest, Halford) and mastering by Maor Applebaum (Halford).

A little bit more about this band called RaLeaf...
RaLeaf, based out of Philadlephia, PA, was born in a garage in Westfield, NJ when high school friends Mike Marks and Mark Boyd started playing together in the Boyd Family’s loft in 2004. In high school, the two of them spent hours playing guitars and singing, honing their skills and tightening their partnership.
In college, Mike met bassist Jake Irwin who's innate understanding of harmony fill out the band’s rich sound. Rounding out the foursome is the hard-hitting Mark Anderson who eats drums for breakfast to start his day. Mark fortuitously met his future band mates at a bar one night in New Jersey, and the rest is history.

Nate Currin is an artist and a storyteller.
Having traveled to over 20 countries, performed with notable acts like Blues Traveler, Butch Walker, Jars of Clay and Neon Trees, and been featured on MTV he retains his enigmatic drive to fly under the radar from time to time. Having performed over 450 shows nationally, it’s when watching him play an intimate coffeehouse gig that he's tucked into a headlining U.S. tour that it clicks; Currin is chasing after the genuine human connection, one fan and one song at a time.
We came across Nate's Music when we were searching for a band to fill a show spot, so happy we found his music, it sounded amazing, his style and music is like listening to a person tell a great story. His music is very well written and his style is amazing. He has the understanding that with music comes a passion to have a great time.
If you're feeling down or sad, his music will pick you up, songs like "American Dream" & "Take It Home" show you a side of him as a person with a sound that is so soothing to the soul, you feel like his music is written for you. All of Nate's music is very good and well written that sounds a little like Passenger & Mumford & Sons to a bit of The Lumineers.
Nate's show's are like a family reunion, you listen to the songs and move while singing right along. You owe it to yourself to pick up his new EP "You And I Are All Ghost" all the songs on this are great!
