Framing Hanley

Framing Hanley is a five piece alternative rock band from Cookeville (Tennessee), United States. Nixon, Chris, Brandon, Tim, and Luke came together to form a band that was eventually named Framing Hanley. (The band was called by a different name up until 2006, Embers Fade, but changed in dedication to a great friend of the band, Ashley Hanley, who passed away.) With their amazing musical abilities and live show the band quickly gained a large following in Nashville.

Sydonia

Sydonia are probably most best described as a melodic metal band. Whilst their music can sometimes represent that of anger and pain, as in "Andwethoughthewasmad" off the EP (Man)ipulate, it can also sometimes represent that of calm, soft and somewhat relaxing taste, as in "Taste More", also from (Man)ipulate. However, this variety in sound further intensifies the talent that is posessed in this band. Lead singer, Dana Roskvists, explores as many regions of the larynx as you may have thought possible. Lyrically and musically this band will not fail to amaze.

Peabody

The Australian Peabody is documented below with the American Peabody following. Starting in the mid-90s fresh out of high school, Sydney, Australia three-piece Peabody chose the road less traveled by mixing smart suits, Rickenbacker guitars, classic pop melodies and good old Australian pub sweat. The band recorded and self-released two EPs and also delivered literally hundreds of live shows before recording their debut album for Nonzero Records. Following the success of that album, Professional Againster, Peabody impressed again with the release of their second album, The New Violence.
