Atlanta-based indie rock band made in 2016. Influenced by Arctic Monkeys, RHCP and The Killers. Debut album "Submarine Races" coming out soon!
Lost Stars' music has a very wholesome feel to it. Their sound lends itself to the end of summer. It's peppy and accessible, yet at the same time thoughtful..." -Ryan Getz, Tuned Up
In early 2016, high school friends Damian Malnar, and Charley Holden reunited at Belmont University with Trey Warner to create Lost Stars.
With influences from bands like OneRepublic, and Imagine Dragons, the dynamic group is known for their lyrically driven songs, that crossover pop, rock, dance, and indie styles to create something new, yet familiar. Lost Stars recently followed up their debut EP, 'Dreaming in the Dark' with their newest single 'It Only Takes One', which is available everywhere that digital music is streamed or sold.
About 45 minutes south of Atlanta, Georgia comes a group of young musicians by the name of Sweetbay. From humble beginnings cutting their teeth as a trio in the local scene, to developing their own unique wall of sound, Sweetbay has developed into something worth watching out for. In the early months of 2015, Sweetbay was founded in Newnan, Georgia by Lance Mapp, Zach Deloach, and James Tiernan. Their dynamic sound and performances have begun to make waves in the Georgian music scene. Sweetbay's music is often described as soulful, guitar driven indie rock with a colorful, ambient electronic twist. Taking inspiration from acts such as Colony House, Kings of Leon, and Moon Taxi, Sweetbay likes to take raw, emotional rock and build a wall of synths and ambient pads around it. A combination of Lance Mapp's ever so slightly bluesy vocals and roaring guitar, James Tiernan's thunderous bass lines, and Zach Deloach's creatively off the wall drumming, along with the lush sounds that surround them will leave you wanting more after every performance.
Meet Maggie Schneider - a bright-eyed and bubbly new artist whose music and energy have not gone unnoticed in the Atlanta music scene. The singer-songwriter has been writing and performing for as long as she can remember and has no intentions of slowing down - in fact, this is just the beginning. Maggie has opened for nationally touring artists and bands such as State Champs, Reeve Carney, Dalton Rapattoni, and Like Pacific, and is thankful for all of the support she has received from friends, family, and her favorite artists alike.
Maggie's music is best described as fresh, honest, and open-hearted; her love of life and optimistic point of view shine through each word that she sings, no matter what story she is telling. In May 2016, Maggie released her debut album, 'Insomniac.' To her, the album is all about the importance of love and friendship. While these themes are still very prominent in the artist's new music, it is undeniable that both Maggie and her songwriting have matured. Maggie's new EP, "Tinted Glasses" (produced by Rian Dawson of All Time Low) is all about what she has learned in the last two years about people, relationships, and of course, herself. She feels incredibly excited and blessed to be working with Rian, and hopes that this EP will impact listeners as much as writing the songs impacted her. It is a beginning of a new era, and Maggie is ready to share her story.
