Revolution, I Love You
Revolution, I Love You
Revolution, I Love You makes Lo-fi Electro Rock, gritty rock n' roll with a backbone of drum machines, synthesizers, and subwoofer-pushing bass. The band has toured the US east coast with German rock band Pandora's Bliss and has shared the stage with Berlin, Brick + Mortar, and Quiet Company. RILY's music video for "The Atlantic Ocean" was viewed more than 25,000 times since it's release in February 2014, they won Indie Electronic/Dance Band of the Year at the 2013 Tri State Indie Music Awards, and MusicUnderFire named RILY's single, "Cotton Shirts," one of their Top 100 Tracks of 2012.

Revolution, I Love You culls elements from across the pop spectrum, including gritty indie rock guitars, electronic beats, dramatic choruses, loops, and synthesizers, and uses them to strange and somewhat psychedelic effect. Katrina Murray of The Key (WXPN) says, "Crunchy synth work and loud guitar riffs are central to Revolution, I Love You's modern twist on classic rock 'n roll."

High school friends Rob Lindgren and Jason Reynolds formed Revolution, I Love You in 2008. They performed as a duo for years, each of them shifting from vocals to guitar to keyboard to a create a densely layered live sound. In 2014, the band welcomed Jeff Ormsby as their new drummer. The unconventional rock trio fuses live drums onto an already eclectic sound. Lindgren says, "This will free us up to try a lot of new things. Stranger things, I hope."
War Twins
Shadowplay
We have been playing music for over six years now, and we just keep moving along becoming more well known as time goes on, each and every day. Unlike so many others the thought of becoming rock stars was not just a dream. For lead singer Andrew Corkery and lead guitarist Dan Holden becoming rock stars was not a choice, but a destiny they wished to embark on. From that standpoint, there were no other options but to seek out other members and build a band. The product of that search is now the band known as Shadowplay. Due to age and varying degrees of training and musicianship, struggles occurred the first few years. However, they took their criticism constructively and used it to better themselves and their art. They welcomed guitarist George Legatos in 2007, bassist John Sellers in 2008 and drummer Tim Bear in 2009. In just two years their musical progression was obvious. Later on in 2011 George left the band due to personal timing restraints, then Ed Flynn stepped right in and filled the void on guitar and bass. We have started and articulated a marketing strategy that focuses on creating a "global music conversation" that is facilitated by having our fans create street teams for Shadowplay all around the globe. We look at our band not so much as a product, but more or less as a grass roots organization that is brought to prominence by the power of the people who support it. Shadowplay currently has 93 street teams all over the globe that help spread the music of Shadowplay through a variety of promotional procedures and methodologies. Whether it be through the internet and social media, physical music and promotion, distribution, radio requests, radio campaigning, or even word of mouth, our goal with Shadowplay from the onset is to play the music we love which is created through a cohesive collaborative effort of all five band members. The music produced through these means will then be spread to others who find they enjoy it, not by showing them a product, but rather through generating and facilitating a global music conversation on the band itself. Advertising is very broad and general from our standpoint and does not make an impact. People are bombarded by advertising on a daily bases in every facet of life, becoming desensitized. What connects people to one another is communication. Without it we become detached from what is happening all around us. What catches people's attention the most is personal dialog and conversation between one another. We want that conversation to be about Shadowplay.
