R5

In 2013 R5 rocketed onto the Billboard Top 200, debuting at #24 and hitting #2 on the iTunes Pop chart, with debut album Louder, produced by Emanuel “Eman” Kiriakou and Andrew Goldstein for Mod Squad Music Inc., and co-written by the band.

R5 has rapidly emerged as an exciting new voice in the world of pop rock. Originally from Littleton, Colo., the L.A.-based band was formed in 2008 and is comprised of siblings Riker (bass/vocals), Ross (guitar/vocals), Rocky (guitar/vocals) and Rydel Lynch (keyboard/vocals); along with friend Ellington “Ratliff” (drums/vocals).

The band self-released their first EP, Ready Set Rock in 2010. They signed with Hollywood Records in April of 2012 and released their second EP, Loud, on February 19, 2013. R5’s major label debut, Louder, was released on September 24, 2013. The quintet starred in a 5-part VEVO series titled “R5 on R5,” which saw cameras follow them on a 2013 sold-out tour that included shows in the U.S., Canada, Australia, England and France. The band made a triumphant return to Europe in early 2014 and recently released a 6-part VEVO series, R5 Live in London , capturing the mania of R5 fans during a magnetic show in London last March.

Bryan Ferry

From his earliest recordings with Roxy Music at the beginning of the 1970s, Bryan Ferry has taken his place as one of the most iconic and innovative artists to emerge in popular music. In his work you hear a vocal and lyrical brilliance that merges the intensity of Lou Reed, the poise of Sinatra and the charisma of Serge Gainsbourg. But then there is something extra – a verve and performance so ultra-modern that it continually breaks new ground.
