Skyward Story
Skyward Story
Baltimore pop rock trio Skyward Story has an undeniable and captivating spirit. That spirit is easy to see in their genuine and dynamic performances and even easier to hear in their new, unmistakably catchy pop rock sound, borrowed from their pop punk roots. Finding this unique sound has just been a part of their journey in discovering their true identity. The upcoming release is an exciting, new page for Skyward Story, bringing their sound to the leading edge of today's trends and destined to turbocharge their fan base and reach countless new fans.

Formerly as 3PM, the group developed a large dedicated following through tireless grassroots efforts, selling over 25,000 copies of their album “Slow Me Down.” During their time on the Warped Tour, “Slow Me Down” peaked on the Billboard charts at #27 Top Rock Albums, #2 National Heatseekers, #18 Alternative and #19 Independent. Looking to the future, the members felt their time as 3PM had come to a close, and that they had evolved into something greater. Together, Brandon Millman (drummer) and Scott Montgomery (guitarist) turned to - what else - social media to add a new vocalist, finding Aaron O’Connor (lead vocals) on Twitter, ushering in this new era of Skyward Story

With many looking to see what they would do next, the band spent countless hours working on taking their music to the next level and emerged with a style all their own. Their writing attracted the attention of multi-platinum producer Matt Squire, who has produced breakout records for artists such as One Direction, Panic! at the Disco, Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato. Skyward Story and Squire worked together for a whole year and the group has emerged with an album destined for greatness.
The Ones You Forgot
The Ones You Forgot
The Ones You Forgot is a pop rock band from Brick, NJ that was formed in 2014 after long-time friends and guitarists Ferdinand Benauro and Matt Thompson noticed remarkable covers on Instagram from vocalist Jenna Bruno. When the three had the chance to play together, they realized they were in the perfect spot to start a band and rounded out the group with the addition of Justin Rodman on drums and Lance Nelson on bass. The Ones Your Forgot kicked off their debut release the following year with Peaks & Valleys; however, it wasn’t until their "Make It Out Alive” single release in late 2016 that solidified their sound and structure. Drawing inspiration from acts including Paramore, State Champs, and All Time Low, the band combined their backgrounds to cultivate the diversity heard through their music.

Taking some time to perfect their sound, the band spent the following year writing new music and playing shows, opening for artists such as Emarosa, Boys Like Girls, Four Year Strong, Never Shout Never, and Seaway, among others. Now the band has returned with a brand new EP, Too Afraid To Say, set for release on June 29, 2018. Produced and mixed by Rob Freeman (Armor For Sleep, Hit The Lights) at Audio Pilot Studios and mastered by Rogue Planet Mastering, the EP tells a story of the elements that we are all afraid of, but too reluctant to vocalize to a loved one, a friend, or even yourself. Vocalist Jenna Bruno shares, “We want our listeners to know that feeling scared or vulnerable is okay, and everyone has their own unique way of overcoming it when the time is right.”
