Concord America“When Atlanta’s Concord America formed in the summer of 2011, Ben Presley (vocals, lead guitar), Vinny Restivo (bass guitar), and John Restivo (drums) couldn’t have fathomed that their punk/garage style would evolve to make itself relevant to every genre of music.

The Little BoxesLittle Boxes was formed in the Summer of 2011. Haseena stumbled upon the talented Cady Marie Staggs (kickass pipes, guitarist, composer), who is perhaps the most unique addition yet.
