Raising Cadence
Raising Cadence
Raising Cadence is a five-piece alternative pop rock band from Orlando Florida. Singer Miguel Larsen and guitarists Sam Oliveira and Andrew Rouleau joined forces in 2014 to create Raising Cadence before finding bassist Ronald Paul Cook and drummer TJ Howard. The band immediately went into the studio to record their debut EP “Northbound” which released on Spotify in January of 2015. Since then, Raising Cadence has played numerous shows in the central Florida area including two shows at the Orlando House of Blues and recently returned from their first Southeast tour “The Tour Awakens” that stretched up to Atlanta, Georgia. The band took a break from playing shows in Fall of 2016 to begin recording their sophomore EP “Take Me Higher” to be released Fall of 2017. Raising Cadence has been compared to bands like Dance Gavin Dance and other pop bands but with a jazz vibe. What really sets Raising Cadence apart from other bands in the Central Florida Music scene isn’t just their unique sound, but also their high energy performance that matches the energy of their songs and manages to get any crowd on their feet and moving.
Before The Origin
Before The Origin
he NYC-based alternative rock act, Before the Origin (‘BtO’), is the unlikely synthesis of 4 young professionals originating from different corners of the world: Dom Biezonski (lead vocals/guitar/electronics), a Polish-born 'neurogenetics of singing' researcher at Rockefeller University; Andrew Krivtsov (lead vocals/guitar/electronics), a Russian app developer/designer; Michele Bazzano (drums), an Italian banker on Wall St.; and Joey D'Alessio (bass), the all-American, classically trained musician/teacher. What could these four seemingly disparate individuals have in common? Parallel lives as musicians with an unwavering passion for songwriting and explosive live performances. Before the Origin was established in early 2014 when Dom and Andrew were engaged in another musical project, only to realize that their similar musical interests, aspirations, and natural songwriting chemistry signaled the call for something new, special, and unique. Adding Mike and a former bassist to the mix, what followed was an obsessive devotion to writing and rehearsing, an effort that within a few short months generated the majority of tracks for what would ultimately become their debut album, “Who We Are”, released in January of 2016. Merging elements of alternative and punk/pop rock, this album was particularly distinguished by Dom and Andrew’s exchange of lead vocals and guitars across tracks, multidimensional lyrics, Mike’s explosive drumming, and deep bass underpinnings that held this melodic universe together. Quickly after, Before the Origin released an official music video for album’s title track, “Infinite Jest”, a song about the pain of cycling through various failing relationships; this track has been viewed over 10k times across social media platforms, and continues to draw attention from new fans. Between the end of 2014 and present, Before the Origin have played an endless stream (50+) of shows locally around Manhattan & Brooklyn, and outside NYC including NJ, FL, and MA. Notable venues have included the famous Gramercy Theatre, the Cutting Room, the Bitter End, Arlene's Grocery, Mercury Lounge, DROM, the Delancey, 89 North, Santo’s Party House, and the now defunct Black Bear Bar, Grand Victory, and Trash Bar. With Joey joining the band in late 2016, Before the Origin have been relentlessly writing songs for their sophomore album, slated to be released by the end of May, 2018. With time, the themes and songwriting approaches of Before the Origin have continued to evolve, touching on the nature of relationships, existentialism, universalism/cosmism, and politics. In short, their music aims to inspire new perspectives on old ideas. Join the BtO family and support their great passion as these hardworking musicians continue to push their band to new heights!
Sampere
Sampere
Sampere’s first single, “The Fallen,” was written to inspire those to overcome what they might think is impossible; purely to embrace the fight within. The song was named in Syracuse’s Top 20 Songs of 2016 by rock alternative music station, 95X. For the past year, after absolutely killing their first show together, they have been busy blasting their name across the region and most recently, releasing their debut EP, “World of Illusion.”

Syracuse, NY has set the stage for Sampere; building their fan base, providing recognition, and instilling motivation with partnering artists. Sampere will be promoting the release of their newest single, "Give It Up," with a Fall tour in cities including Louisville, Detroit, Boston, New York City, and more.

"We want to share our music, play our music, and gain a bigger audience in local and regional markets,” says Matt. Fans from all over the East coast will be able to find venues rocking and jamming with Sampere.

The band’s inspiration originates from a common thread of reaching a balanced state-of-mind while creating music together, and the desire to diffuse inspiration amongst their fans. Matt describes how the lyrics written are often generated from daily encounters, both positive and negative, while DJ forwardly states, “drumming is everything. Without the beat... life would be flat, bland, and one-dimensional."
