BRICK + MORTAR
BRICK + MORTAR
Sometimes music saves people from taking the wrong path and that’s exactly what it did for Brandon Asraf. While his partner, John Tacon, grew up in a relatively normal suburban setting, Asraf grew up “like wolves” amid five siblings in a New Jersey household headed by a conman father. Dad’s scheme ultimately tore the family apart. “Mom didn’t take everything that happened that the best,” Asraf Says. You can learn more about that in VICE’s article: “My Buddy’s Dad Was a Blood Diamond Smuggler”…

Brick + Mortar have truly been building a movement. Spreading a message of empathy, positivity, and self motivation…
THE UNLIKELY CANDIDATES
THE UNLIKELY CANDIDATES
Indie rock band from Fort Worth, Texas, USA. Formed in 2008.
THE SINK OR SWIM
Don't let the seemingly young age of Phoenix, AZ-based The Sink or Swim fool you. While all age 22 or younger, the band has unleashed their music with an earnestness and fury that is non-negotiable. With each member almost imposssibly boasting of nearly a decade of experience, the 4-piece has released two well-received EP's with a 3rd to follow in the summer of 2017. The boys recorded the new EP at Full Well Recording Studio with Mike Bolenbach.The band's recordings and live performance alike have taken their home of Phoenix by storm with local institution JAVA Magazine claiming, "The Sink of Swim have established themselves as one of the brightest and most ambitious acts in the local music scene." The upstarts' poise and vision is no doubt influenced by not only their love of all things rock n' roll but also their collective struggles with adversity - with one member claiming to be an Israeli fugitive for failing to enlist in the IDF, and another being estranged from his father at a young age due to a stint in prison. It is all these factors that inject their new album "Oasis Unknown" with an even darker and heavier landscape than their recent albums. "The songs are all relationship driven," says singer Nate Zeune. "It's about processing the aftermath, coping." To a man, each member of the band claims to have one goal in their musical endeavors: to make people feel something. Says Zeune, "we're so accustomed to instant gratification, to getting a rush all the time that we're all becoming numb. We want to connect to people with our music....and we want to prove that rock n roll isn't dead." After playing the record release show to a packed house at Crescent Ballroom, Oasis Unknown is now available at most online music sites.
