The End of America

The End of America is not some grand political statement. It is a band of friends, singers, and travelers. Blending three part harmony with rock and americana, the Philadelphia based trio achieves a style that resonates with fans of Ryan Adams as well as Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young.

Since their inception in 2010, The End of America has recorded and released two EPs and a single, performed at festivals including SXSW, Savannah Stopover, Baltimore Folk Fest, and has performed with the likes of Beck, Anthony Green, Gary Louris of The Jayhawks, and Rocky Votolato.

Brendon Thomas, James Downes, and Trevor Leonard met on tour years prior. All frontmen of previous bands, they formed a trio that would highlight their unique ability to harmonize, and subsequently capture the musical moments they created in the most undressed method possible. Both of their albums Steep Bay and Shakey were recorded live within a few takes: the first in a cabin on battery power, the second in studio to 2-inch tape.
"These three cats blend their voices as effortlessly as Crosby, Stills and Nash. [Steep Bay] is a deeply organic, beautiful album. And the whole thing was written and recorded in 7 days."

In February 2013, The End of America was invited to perform at Beck's "Song Reader" sheet music album release show in Los Angeles. Beck discovered TEOA by way of a Youtube video performing one of his new songs, and flew them out the following week. The band's performance received applause from Spin Magazine, Filter, and Hollywood Reporter. See TEOA's rendition of "Please Leave a Light On When You Go" by Beck, here.

TEOA has been in the studio most of 2015 recording their debut full length.

Nameless in August

Nameless in August is a folk rock band from Pittsburgh, PA. The band got their start when, lead singer, Zach Rock met banjoist, Jason Buzon at a Brookline, Pa coffee shop. The two made plans to meet later that week and they began writing music from the first session they had and have continued to do so since April of 2011. Later on in October of 2011, Patrick McGinley joined the duo that was playing out as Nameless in August. Patrick heard the two as they were hosting an open mic night at a South Side bar in Pittsburgh called The Blind Pig. A bar in which Patrick lived above. A friend that was with Patrick that night persuaded him walk up the stairs from the bar and grab his instrument and jam with the two just for the night, just for fun. But he is yet to leave. Nameless in August gigged heavily around Pittsburgh as a three piece band from winter 2011 to summer of 2013 but in May of 2013 the dynamic of the band would be changed forever. Jeremy Colbert, a music major out of Shenandoah University and active musician in the Pittsburgh scene, caught word of a show he should check out of a band he might like. It was an Nameless in August show. Jeremy sat in the front row that night and experienced the band live. He was a fan. He knew of their open jam night on Tuesdays in the South Side, so he starting showing face there. He began to study Ni8's material and he learned it well. The next two years shaped the foundation of Nameless in August . They played out relentlessly as a folk/rock band without a drummer. The fans they gained over that time didn't mind missing a beat. Thats just who they were. Until the Summer of 2014.

Just as NiA was releasing their first album, they looked ahead at the venues and festivals they were playing that year and felt they wanted a bigger, fuller sound to their music. "I can't say that I thought Mike was a temporary addition or just a 'lets try this out' guy because we've played with drummers in the past and felt we were better off without it. But he was eager to learn our material and knew a lot of the songs the first time we rehearsed" (-Zach Rock on drummer and long time friend of Jason's, Mike Brunch.) "It really takes a special person to fit into this music that has been performed so long without a drummer and not come off abrasive to the band and the fans". Throughout the Summer of 2014 Mike Brunch drummed with the band and fit seamlessly. The transition worked and that summer Ni8 got its groove. Now the band is embarking on taking their music to the people and hitting the road with the release of their first studio recording, "Wheelhouse".
