BRONCHO
Formed in 2010 in Norman, Oklahoma, roughneck pop-punk quartet BRONCHO were started by guitarist/vocalist Ryan Lindsey, guitarist Ben King, bassist Jonathan Ford, and drummer Nathan Price. The project began as a loose recording session where Lindsey quickly sketched out a few ideas before sending them around to some friends for advice and ideas. Before long the careless demos became the basis of a full-on band, with Ford going so far as booking the group a show without consulting the other collaborators on the project.

Taking inspiration from early punk acts like the Ramones and the Stooges, and applying liberal amounts of ‘80s college rock grit, BRONCHO were born.

The band’s first full-length outing, Can’t Get Past the Lips, surfaced in 2011, and eventually led to press and national touring, ranking as one of NPR’s best-of-2011 albums, among other accolades.

The album was re-released in 2013 on producer Kevin Augunas' Fairfax Recordings label, and the band started recording a second album.

After leaving the label and Augunas, the group issued a single for Park the Van, “Try Me Out Sometime,” in 2011, then returned with a single for CQ Records in 2013. The song, the unstoppably catchy “It’s On,” was used memorably over the end titles on the third season of hit television show Girls.

Moving to a new label, Dine Alone, and down to the trio of Lindsey, King, and Price, the band’s long-awaited second album, Just Enough Hip to Be Woman, was released in the fall of 2014. They added bassist Penny Pitchlynn for the tour that followed, and she stuck around for the next album.

The new wave-influenced Double Vanity was released in June of 2016.

ISHI
Ishi was born as an experiment between friends in Dallas, TX. In 2006, JT Mudd & Brad Dale set out to create a sound that would redefine their own voice in modern day music. Their vision was to blend the classic, soulful story-telling and organic instrumentation of traditional folk music, with the infinite sonic possibilities offered through electronic production. Experimentation quickly evolved into a journey of sound that would ultimately lead to Ishi’s debut, Through the Trees, released May of 2010 and Digital Wounds April of 2013.

Juno released on September, 16th for the band’s fifth independent release and the third EP of their catalog. The new collection of songs range from funk, nu disco, and indie rock bathed in the gospel of Prince/LCD Sound System. Ishi teamed up again with UK artist James Marsh most known for his creative album concepts with experimental UK band Talk Talk.

As musicians who consistently use their music and live shows to uplift and inspire their fans, Ishi has decided to be leaders in the music industry by using their voice to improve the quality of life for those suffering from various cognitive diseases. The release of their new ep, Juno will benefit non-profit Music Is Our Weapon who provides personal music programs for those battling Alzheimer’s and dementia, PTSD, Autism, Parkinson’s and various other cognitive disorders.

50% of all digital sales raised by the EP will go directly to Music Is Our Weapon’s ongoing effort to provide a sustainable source of digital music in healthcare environments to increase life quality. By providing caregivers with the tools and support necessary to serve those in need with access to the music they love, they will be able to simultaneously collect data to further understand the power of music as medicine.

Ishi’s ability to successfully walk the line between an ambitious studio act and a multi-sensory live experience allows them to engage their audiences in an uplifting celebration of life. Their subtle undertones of inner-exploration combine to create a concert experience that is unequivocally one-of-a-kind. Each night, Ishi intends to create an entirely unique environment of mysticism, awareness, love and acceptance. Adored by fans and critics alike, there is no denying that Ishi is an immersive experience that everyone should discover.
