From the American Mid-west, rock band Seven Past Sunset formed in 2017. Vocalist Dustin Hites was busy working on his solo-career, playing in venues around Ohio. A friend of now-guitarist Johnny Krill caught his set, and had Johnny listen over the phone. A week later the pair met up and joined forces in Soup Can Studio, putting down their first songs, with the rest of the band rounded out by Jeremy Rober on bass and vocals, and Scottie Vining on drums.
Based in Columbus Ohio, rock band Beartooth are set to release their third studio album, ‘Disease’. It’s a stark look inwards, and the next chapter in the chronicle of frontman Caleb Shomo’s battle with his inner demons. ‘Disease’ will be out on 28 September, but is available to pre-order now via the band’s website, where fans can also order limited and exclusive ‘Disease’ vinyl and merch bundles.
Cleveland hip hop/pop artist Dave Zup started in music from a young age. His musician father encouraged his creative ability very early on, and Dave was exposed to a wide assortment of his father’s records, which included artists such as A Tribe Called Quest, The Commodores, and La Soul, and was spurred on to develop an interest in writing his own lyrics. He joined a youth theatre, and started developing his love for performance. By the time he was in high school, Dave had been recording himself over beats he’d found online, or had made with his friends.
