Doomriders

Boston's DOOMRIDERS are sonically antisocial and undeniably unforgettable as they come. DOOMRIDERS are comprised of a stellar lineup featuring Nate Newton (Converge, Old Man Gloom), along with longtime friends Jebb Riley (There Were Wires, Disappearer), Chris Pupecki (Cast Iron Hike), and JR Conners (Cave In). The demon child of their collective unhealthy obsession with Classic Rock, Hardcore, and Skateboarding, DOOMRIDERS are a rare beast in today's music world. Their soulful no frills approach conjures the spirits of Thin Lizzy, Entombed, and damn near every evil in between.

John Campbell

Guitarist, singer and songwriter John Campbell had the potential of turning a whole new generation of people onto the blues in the 1990s, much the same way Stevie Ray Vaughan did in the 1980s. His vocals were so powerful and his guitar playing so fiery, you couldn't help but stop what you were doing and pay attention to what you were hearing. But unfortunately, because of frail health and a rough European tour, he suffered a heart attack while sleeping on June 13, 1993, at the age of 41.

Dissident Genro

ENGLISH: Dissident Genro sprung to life in March 2008 as the world’s first Scottish Kei solo artist. Rimu is the brainchild behind Dissident Genro, armed only with one laptop and his trusty guitar. "I want to marry my Eastern and Western influences and create something completely orignal…” Rimu says. “Like the unique and wonderful visuals many Visual Kei bands wow their audiences with today, I want to do the same, but fly the flag for the west, which had not been done before in this genre. With Dissident Genro, I’m expressing every part of myself – musically, visually and culturally."
