Illusion Of Self
Alternative Rock
San Francisco

Illusion of Self is an alternative rock band formed by Frank Salazar, Miles Deiaco, and Raymond Jones. They blend the vibe and tones of the 60′s and 70′s rock with an aggressive, emotional, feel of the 90’s while remaining modern and progressive. Frank’s vocals capture the audience with his slightly bluesy yet over-driven attack. Miles’ sultry low end on the bass lays a melodic foundation for the intense array of guitar sounds. Raymond’s (Random Mysticks) intricate and hard hitting drum patterns force the audience to listen up and jump around. This 3 piece trio came out of San Francisco and wouldn’t have it any other way. The sound can be defined as classic yet ahead of its time.

The Repair

The most memorable music that a listener experiences is music that they can feel in their heart and their soul. The thumping on your chest and the conviction of lyrics leaves a lasting impression on our brains and causes emotions to arise. The Repair started in 2010 as an experiment of new songs written by Walter Bere, lead singer and guitarist. The objective was to create an atmosphere where the listener can close their eyes and be taken to another place, whether it was back to the first feelings of romance, or to the hustle and bustle of a busy city street. In early 2011, the band was formed and geared up for a show in Hollywood at the world famous Whisky a Go Go, where they would begin their journey as a new Rock band from Sacramento, CA. Passion and Intensity are revealed in the tone and vibe of every song they perform. That is the experience that The Repair brings.

Van Nuys, CA

Lemay emerged in late Autumn of 2010 with an ineffable amount of musical tenacity. Steaming from the dissolution of one band, Harker Russell (vocals & guitar) and Devon Steelman (drums & production) collaborated together to continue the pursuit of making it in the music industry. It didn't take long for a few tracks to legitimize the band; a marriage of melodic creativity ensues with perseverance. Matt Stevenson (lead guitar & self-proclaimed ice-box of energy) joined the group after hearing a few of the songs. Matt added fuel to the Lemay fire and quickly became a fixture. Devo (lead bass) joined the band and completed the mixture. "Green Street" is Lemay's first release, available on iTunes. Not to be underestimated, Lemay's music is something that one must introduce themselves to in order to fully comprehend the innovation of the band's product. Lemay is currently booking shows and tour dates to follow the "Green Street" EP's release, and engaged in intense online marketing efforts. Check out,,,, and the Lemay facebook fan page for more updates! Lemay is poised to take the music world by storm and hopes to touch people all around the world with their music.
