Artist Bios


Tyler Porch Band is a blues influenced rock band hailing from the underground scene in Atlanta, Georgia. Combining Bonham-esque drumming with Hendrix inspired tones, they hit audiences in venues across the south with a showing that they aren't likely to forget anytime soon.

Tyler Porch is the nineteen year old frontman, covering the guitar and vocal spectrum in the lineup. Coming from a blues background, he displays fret fireworks in a flashy manner, capturing the room with both volume and chops. He currently attends Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. The howls and screams of feedback from his Gibson-335 punctuate a barrage of rich chocolaty licks that leave your ears ringing and wanting more.

Brad Kemp fills out the low end in the band. Coming from a heavier background, his riff mastery is a key component in the bands creative process, keeping things moving in new and interesting ways. He has an impressive resume, including his guitar work for Red River Revival, Stone Mountain Freeway, Crucial Taunt, and bass playing in Mothertruckers and Pretty Twisted. The creamy warm tones of his bass are like a perfectly flambéed crème brûlée to cap off the band's signature sound.

Joey Robertson, the resident boxbanger in the trio, grew up playing along to Metallica records and performing with pop-punk bands like Treephort. He and Brad have been playing together for a number of years, joining forces in many Atlanta based projects; their tightness shows in both live and studio settings. Joey's Bonham-esque style fills out the band in a way that few drummers could manage. His constant assault of snare rolls and biscuity overtones from behind the kit propels the band into one of Atlanta's hardest hitting roots band around.

Born from the desire to make an indelible mark on the world of rock and metal, O.D.D. was formed in 2013. Their collective desire to write heavy groove oriented songs combined with a melodic vocal layer is one thing that sets this crew apart.

Based out of Atlanta, GA, O.D.D. is a no frills, in your face act providing an arena-like experience to audiences everywhere. Compared by music critics as Alice in Chains meets Anthrax, this band will have audiences out of their seats with fists in the air!

Their second EP, “The Disorder,” reached #228 on the North American College & Community Radio Chart. They have also licensed their music to be used by The Discovery Network, MTV, and NASCAR for the shows “Shark Week,” “Velocity,” “TLC,” “Ridiculousness,” and “Nitro Circus.”

O.D.D. have carved a niche that lurks somewhere between hard rock and metal. Melodic vocals paired with heavy guitar riffs, pulsating bass and thunderous drums complete the experience referred to as a “Ride on a rocket propelled rollercoaster”. See what it’s all about for yourself!
