Imagine Dragons

They released two EPs titled Imagine Dragons EP and Hell and Silence EP (mixed in part by Mark Needham) in 2010, both recorded at Battle Born Studios. Shortly, they were invited to fill in for Train at the 13th annual Bite of Las Vegas food and music festival.

Perfume Genius

Mike Hadreas, also known as Perfume Genius is a singer/songwriter from Seattle, Washington, US. Perfume Genius began when he moved from New York to his mother’s home in Everett, WA. In these relatively isolated conditions, Hadreas felt a compulsion to make music and began composing fragile yet brutally honest songs on the piano. By 2008 he had set up a MySpace page and began offering his music there, along with similarly spare and evocative homemade music videos.

Cloud Nothings

Cloud Nothings is an indie rock band from Cleveland, Ohio. Dylan Baldi started Cloud Nothings as a way to amuse himself between classes at Case Western Reserve University in 2009.

A concert promoter who invited Cloud Nothings to play a gig in New York City in December 2009 prompted Baldi to hastily assemble a real band and drop out of college to focus on his music full-time.Baldi recorded the second Cloud Nothings album (2010’s Self Titled) in Baltimore with producer Chester Gwazda.The Cloud Nothings third album, Attack On Memory, was released in January 2012.
