AUGUST 2015 BAND OF THE MONTH
LAMP SHADE BETTY
Benny Schriener - Lead Vocals/Guitar
Lamp Shade Betty is a young and high-energy rock band hailing from the St. Paul area. Members of this new group include brothers Benny and Noah Schriener respectively on lead vocals and drums, the shred-prodigy Casey Weishaar ripping on lead guitar, and last but not least Trey Gust holding down the low end on bass. These four guys conspire to make up some of the best rock music on the market to date, which some would describe as a modernized version of 80's metal. Whatever you call it, this is a band you have to see to believe the true talent involved. Currently with 11 original songs just released their debut, self-titled album, Lamp Shade Betty knows how to bring the party, and bring it big!
JULY 2015 BAND OF THE MONTH
ASHES FROM STONE
Andrew Allen Owens: Lead Vocals/Guitar
Ashes From Stone began in the winter of 2012 in Woodbury, Minnesota when
Andrew Owens, Eli Appletoft and Tommy Donohue met online and immediately
clicked on a creative level. Tommy Donohue had been looking for band
members for a project he'd already began writing, one jaw dropping jam
session later and the pieces finally came together. Ashes From Stone was
playing shows within the first two years opening for bands like Godsmack,
Saliva, Wayne Static, Saving Abel and many more before recording their
first two tracks "Illusion" and "Mine oh Mine" with producer Ian Combs in
the spring of 2014. Shortly after, Ashes From Stone chose to add another
member to expand their sound even more, they got exactly what they wanted
with guitar player Mike Hill aka "Mike Mountain", a long time friend of
the band who is also a member of the bands Fifth Hour and Caliber 39.
JUNE 2015 BAND OF THE MONTH
THE PHOENIX PHILOSOPHY
Jesse Weber - Vocals, Keys, Programming
The Phoenix Philosophy is an Electronic Rock band from Minneapolis, MN.
The idea behind “the phoenix philosophy” applies to the band’s sonic
evolution from a 4 piece rock band into a heavily electronic influenced
duo consisting of Jesse Weber (vocals/keys/programming) and Stephanie
Thorup (vocals/guitar/keys). Keeping the element of commanding guitars and
introducing dueling male/female vocals over eerie synths creates a sonic
blend of rock and electronic (pop) that matures and inspires with every
