Maradeen
Maradeen
MARADEEN is an American rock band based out of Nashville, Tennessee. Founded by guitarist Whit Murray in the summer of 2014 with keyboardist Kaitlyn Connor and bassist Sterling Miller, the band formed their initial roots as a high energy rock n roll quartet. With classical and jazz improvisation backgrounds, they forged and evolved a unique and well-versed sound. In 2014, Thomas Galloway moved to Nashville for songwriting and began collaborations with Murray. The band entered the analog studio "Welcome to 1979" in the spring of 2015 and recorded their first full-length LP entitled, Mirage. The album features the initial hard-hitting rockers from the band's formative stage, while revealing the new songwriting dynamic between Murray and Galloway.

In August of 2015, drummer John Rodrigue rounded out the lineup, and the band set out touring heavily, honing their ever-evolving and electrifying live show that is never the same as the night before. In May of 2016, they re-entered Welcome to 1979 Studio to begin work on their second studio album, Above the Horizon, this time with Wes Bailey (keyboardist for renowned band, MOON TAXI) in the producer role. The album is comprised of all original material written by all five members of the band. The album - from the artwork to the songs - continues to be widely acclaimed.

Youth Yamada
Youth Yamada
“Youth Yamada seemed to be born in this era accidentally. He is a rock’n roller who addicted to classic rock music. He keeps striving to discover the new possibilities through the Beatles or the Beach boys. That’s one of the most challenging thing to do for musicians nowadays.” Paless otsuki
