The Lawsuits
The Lawsuits
For years, Philadelphia's The Lawsuits have been known for a sound that cannot be pigeonholed into one genre. There is something to be said about a band that has been creating music together as long as The Lawsuits have. With that longevity comes a sort of comfort and understanding for both themselves, and the listener. "Moon Son", the band's second full length release, and Randm Records debut, showcases years of blending each other's influences and sounds to create something wholly their own. They have spent their music careers up to this point dipping their toes in multiple sounds and styles to create this very identity. With a nostalgic nod to the greats of the past and a dash of modern productions and self-awareness, laced with sweeping harmonies: this is The Lawsuits.

Formed after songwriter Brian Dale Allen Strouse was introduced to vocalist Vanessa Winters & bassist Brendan Cunningham through a mutual friend, The Lawsuits then recruited fellow Temple alum, drummer Josh Friedman. Their 2013 release, 'Cool Cool Cool', was produced by Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Man Man), and garnered attention from outlets such as Rolling Stone, Spin, Paste & Philadelphia’s WXPN. The album's first single, 'Onion', was chosen as #22 of Daytrotter's 300 Best Songs of 2013.

Luke Henry has been writing and recording songs in Chicago for the past year and put Rabbitfoot together recently with his friends. As an artist Luke Henry's songs can be anywhere between sweet and spooky and could be categorized as folk-rock or country-rock but you can call it anything your heart desires.
The Thin Cherries
The Thin Cherries
Chicago’s The Thin Cherries is the newest musical project founded by scene vets Steven Delisi and Mark Lofgren.
Delisi is a musician and songwriter with a background in theater and film production. His former band, Phenomenal Cat, blended his pop/punk sensibilities with experimental music and the Russian folk influences of his band mates.
Songwriter/musician Lofgren is one of the founders of psychedelic pop/rock mainstays The Luck of Eden Hall, who have toured Europe and released music on a variety of independent labels, including Headspin Records and Fruits de Mer Records. In 2014 he released his solo debut, The Past Perfect.
In 2015, Delisi approached Lofgren, who shares his love for bands like Blur, the Replacements and the Smiths, to collaborate on a recorded project that emphasizes good songwriting
In the spring of 2016, The Thin Cherries emerged with the addition of multi-instrumentalist Darren Shepherd and drummer Gabriel Palomo.
Collaboration at their California Station studio in Logan Square led to the initial recordings for The Thin Cherries’ debut album, due to be released in spring of 2017.
