After graduating from college, lead singer Benjamin Bradley realized what he had been born to do, sing. After solidifying the line up in June 2007 with lead guitarist C.J. Cummings and bass player Isaac Shields, ATL was created. The four piece from Washington, D.C. take pride on having a live show that is unforgettable as well as the work ethic needed to succeed. You will NOT find a harder working band or a more dedicated group of guys. Come to a show and see why they have developed a buzz.

Hailing from Virginia and France, the band Starryville came together to create the type of music everyone needs, pure rock and roll, collectively influenced by retro, modern and alternative rock sounds. Do not look for us in one tiny box, category or stereotype. We continue to challenge ourselves to write thoughtful and accessible songs, packed with contagious melodies and catchy grooves; and on stage… with professional, tight and energetic live performances.
Starryville evokes a theme, a color and a flavor that is unique, combining melodic and thick guitars with simple rhythms, textural keyboards and driving bass lines. Combined, creating a sound that is different enough, but still able to attract music fans across many genres. Our songs can morph from pulse quickening electric, to quiet acoustic, bouncing into many genres along the way from modern/indie rock to alt. country and beyond.
2010 marks another evolutionary year for the band with a new CD “Humors of the Blood and Skin – Part 2″ expected this summer. Visit their website at: www.starryville.com.
What do you get when you combine a drummer who played in a Phish tribute band, a lead guitarist obsessed with heady British rock and jazz chords, a bassist who loves the grove that makes you move, and a singer with influences ranging from southern to roots to alt rock?
Answer: The most eccentric band on the planet: Tieweb
Combining vast influences ranging from Herbie Hancock to The Pixies, Tieweb fuses memorable melodies with danceable grooves and soaring guitar riffs to create a unique indie-rock sound.
The Virginia based band was founded in 2004 by singer/guitarist Justin Fazzari and lead guitarist Eric Bayles. Tieweb solidified its cast with the addition of rock/jazz drummer Steve Quesenberry and bassist Chris Aylward in 2005. Tieweb released its first EP Setting the Sun in 2006. Its debut full-length album, Indier Than Thou, recorded by Washington Area Music Association (WAMA) award-winning producer Marco Delmar, was released in 2009. The combination of tightly crafted melodies and avant-garde lead guitar creates an album that you can instantly sing along with after the first listen. The mix between electric rock songs and acoustic, slightly alt-country songs reveals a dynamic sound and presents a fresh experience with every listen.
Tieweb was voted one of DC’s hottest 5 bands in the 2009 DC Metromix Battle of the Bands held at the Hard Rock Cafe. This also included an on-air performance on WUSA*9 (CBS). Tieweb also won the Battle of the Bands at Four Courts in Arlington and then played St. Patrick’s Day 2009. Visit their website at: www.tiewebmusic.com.
