Highly Suspect
Highly Suspect
Festival-storming trio Highly Suspect returned with second album The Boy Who Died Wolf on November 18th, 2016. The moving, jubilant LP from the Brooklyn alt-renegades follows two Top 10 Mainstream Rock hits ("Lydia," "Bloodfeather") and two Grammy nominations (Best Rock Song, Best Rock Album) just one year from the release of their 300 Entertainment debut, 2015's Mister Asylum. For the follow-up, the band —  Johnny Stevens (guitar/vocals), and fraternal twin brother rhythm section Rich (bass/vocals) and Ryan Meyer (drums/vocals) — are reappearing stronger, livelier and more mature. The effort earned the boys a third Grammy nominated for “My Name Is Human” (Best Rock Song.)

"It's a family of positivity that we're really trying to build," says Johnny. "Our whole purpose is not just about being some famous fuckin' band, but kind of making a movement. Making a difference for our generation who are so constantly misled. We barely made it out of the wrong mentality. We want to help. We're no fuckin hippies, those days are gone. The irony is that now you have to "fight" for positivity. Which is crazy but so be it. We're strapped and ready to defend free thinking. When you come to our shows, it's kind of like this family affair."
And the Kids
And the Kids
And the Kids is made up of Hannah Mohan (lead vocals, electric ukulele and guitar), Rebecca Lasaponaro (vocals, drums, bells) and Megan Miller (vocals, synth, glockenspiel, woodblock). Playing what they call accessible unconscious existential indie glitter popsicle crisis music, they have been packing the sidewalks and clubs from Northampton to Boston to New York City with their fierce infectious harmonies, tight and unique grooves and songwriting that has the ability to reach down and tug at the truths of their generation and beyond. Hannah and Rebecca met in their grade 7 music class and have been collaborating ever since. Megan Miller met Hannah and Rebecca at the Institute for the Musical Arts (IMA) in Goshen, MA at a women's recording and sound engineering program and together the trio is on a mission to inspire the hearts of all living beings of light and laughter one stage at a time.
