Aboleth is a dirt metal band based in Los Angeles, California.
Sludgy Heavy riffs, grimy blues, whiskey-drenched and soaring female vocals.
"It's the perfect melding of heavy music and tragic melodic vocals that bring the synthesis of the rasp of Janis Joplin and 'Metal God' Ronnie James Dio to mind"
-Coachella Valley Weekly
Explosive rock band Big Atlantic harnesses the raw energy of a rock n roll show with modern music that radiates pure joy with deep roots in the rich, industrial Pittsburgh scene and heavily inspired by such powerhouse guitar-driven rock legends as The Foo Fighters, Rush, STP, The Who and Led Zeppelin.
Together, they vibrate with gritty guitar melodies, fast driving rhythms and rich vocal harmonies, unleashing an earth-shaking sonic wave of sound. The band’s absorbing, intimate live shows and well-crafted recordings showcase members’ technical command of their instruments, effortless chemistry and talent for pouring pure heart into every performance.
Collectively, they have collaborated and played shows with such national acts as Sha Na Na, The Goo Goo Dolls, Foo Fighters, Alien Ant Farm, Ballyhoo!, Rusted Root, Iration, and The Movement. In summer of 2016, Big Atlantic provided VIP entertainment at First Niagara Pavilion alongside Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin, and Alter Bridge.
Big Atlantic released their debut album, MOTIVE, in 2012 produced by Rob Freeman. This earned them radio airplay within the tri-state area and their first taste of success.
Returning to work with Rob at The Pilot Studio, TEMPERED is their latest collection. Thirteen songs written about the evolution of the group that plays like the soundtrack to an epic motion picture. The larger-than-life songs tell stories about the musicians’ personal, emotional travels down life’s many roads and side streets finding the ability to face adversity, find triumphant strength and perseverance.

Duck Duck Goose is a psychedelic funk rock band hailing from Central Pennsylvania that has amassed quite a unique following up and down the east coast. Brought together by their shared love of musical heroes and inspirations, they began their musical journey in the spring of 2012. At the core of Duck Duck Goose lies an overwhelming love of the musical stylings of The Beatles, The Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and The Jimi Hendrix Experience as well as the jazz expressionisms of John Coltrane and Miles Davis. The band strives to give their audience a performance like no other, with a little something for everyone.
As a staple of the regional music festival scene, Duck Duck Goose has made appearances at Peace of Mind Fest, Liberty Fest, A Bear’s Picnic, Froggy Daze and Still Meadows Revue. The band also organizes their own music festival, Duck Duck Goose Family Campout, in an attempt to bring area musicians together and showcase their local music scene. In 2013 they were invited to play at the annual battle of the bands at the Fest for Beatles Fans held in New York. Outside of playing for live crowds, they have also played live on the air for WQSU at the Susquehanna University campus in Selinsgrove, PA.
At the present time, they are working on producing their first original album, which will be released later in 2017. Along with their debut album, they are also in the planning stages of their annual music festival.
You may have heard some whispers recently about Ellie Lee Oldfield, the up-and-coming, Pittsburgh based singer/songwriter fresh on the scene – and taking it by storm. Her hair and edgy style may catch your attention first, but it’s her vocal range and musical flare that will suck you in from the first to final note. Covering everything from classic rock to modern pop while infusing her own new-day punk vibes, audiences of all genres are more than satisfied. But, it doesn’t end there. While pursuing her musical journey, Ellie began writing original material which she weaves into her live show at just the right moment.
Ellie feels that she was “born with music” in her soul and, with talent that goes beyond her young years, she’s ready to share her music with the world. The singer/songwriter has been playing live shows two-three times a week in the local and surrounding areas and has a consistent upcoming schedule.

Philadelphia born and raised singer/songwriter Giana Lynn has been working avidly to play her music out for others, both at local venues and farther away. Highlights over the 18 months include Giana Lynn appearing at Pink Moon Festival 8 in West Virginia, Artscape in Maryland, the Tri-County State Fair in New Jersey, The Tacony Summer Concert Series in Philadelphia, SawTown Tavern's Fringe on the Fringe night in Philadelphia, and more!
Giana Lynn's first full-length album, My Glass Heart, is available now! The sound could be described as pop/folk, though it has been deemed deep pop due to the subject matter. It features ten songs Giana wrote on the ukulele exploring long distance and not-so-long distance love, friendships, and self reflection. The thoughts, both light and dark, that bounce around Giana's head were wrapped up in catchy melodies to make up My Glass Heart and bring a piece of her to your ears.
Giana began dabbling in the art of composition at the early age of six. When her loved ones first heard City of Darkness in D Minor, they knew that that moment marked the beginning of a lifetime of creating music for her. Giana's fervor for creative writing not only continued, but intensified as she grew older. At age eleven she began to write songs with lyrics regularly, at age twelve she began to pen short (and not-so-short) stories as well. When Giana reached high school in the year of 2008, she decided to take her songwriting more seriously.
At the age of fifteen, she put that decision to work and churned out songs with more sound structures and accompaniments. When she began to attend Arcadia University in 2012, she, even more so, seriously considered maturing her musical style and lyrics, and fiercely chasing her dreams of becoming a full-time musician. As a self-taught vocalist (aside from any choral instruction at the theater camp she attended from summers 2007-2012), she learned to write songs that better fit her vocal range through trial and error. She began to compose more orchestral compositions with the hopes of working in the film or video game score industry. She decided to switch majors from theatre to music and was accepted into Temple University, which she began to attend the following school year - in 2013.
However, in autumn of 2013, Giana withdrew from school with a burning desire to chase her dreams on her own terms. Although she did withdraw from college that Fall, the end of 2013 and beginning of 2014 progressed with passionate, positive energy as Giana was preparing to record her EP Gianre, a pun based on the variety of genres included on the eight-song EP combined with her name. The sessions began as early as February of 2014 and continued to run all the way into October of 2014. Gianre was released on November 18th, 2014. Her first full-length album, My Glass Heart, was released on July 11th, 2017. Giana hopes to continue to play shows wherever possible and start recording a another album as 2018 approaches.
Giana lives by several philosophies including, but certainly not limited to, treat others the way you yourself want to be treated, be kind whenever possible: it is always possible, (Dalai Lama) and, in her own words, aspire to inspire. Her ultimate goal is to touch peoples' souls with her music the way her own soul has been embraced a multitude of times by others' music, and to inspire people to truly live the life of which they dream.
