FRENSHIP
FRENSHIP
There’s a strong contrarian streak in FRENSHIP, the Los Angeles-based duo of James Sunderland and Brett Hite. James grew up in Colorado and came from a family of opera singers, and while he didn't inherit that opera gene, he did sing in choirs and played the drums as a kid. James moved to L.A. after 4 years of college in Pennsylvania studying a crash-course in production, where he was part of a "soul-sucking" DJ duo. A fateful DJ ship cruise was the final turning point for him, though he still knew he wanted to do music, just with some emotion to it, some soul. Brett grew up in Spokane, Washington with a talent for soccer and as a hobby played the drums and guitar. A music career was the furthest thing from his mind. It would eventually take an injury for Brett to discover his burgeoning interest in music and the gnawing realization that he was beginning to burn out on the sport. Brett began to play coffee shops and small venues after college as a singer/songwriter.

Fast-forward a few years to when James and Brett met while working in retail in Los Angeles. It wasn't long before the friends tired from partying after work hours and decided to get serious about creating music together. Both acknowledge the creative process began slowly, but they soon came to realize each brought something to the table that the other could appreciate. The duo describes their hypnotic production as a combination of the twosome’s affection for 80s-styled pop. FRENSHIP’s natural progression in creating their viral hit “Capsize” (which has been streamed more than 55 million times on Spotify to date) along with previously released songs captures the band’s signature sound. “Our music in general is really a hybrid of the organic with the electronic,” says James. “Over time, we’ve come to trust our mutual instincts more and more.” FRENSHIP will release an EP this fall via Columbia Records.
Yoke Lore
“A ‘yoke’ is something that holds things together. ‘Lore’ means a set of stories or a collection of ideas about an event, time, or culture,” explains Adrian Galvin, when asked about the meaning behind his musical moniker Yoke Lore. “I want to tell stories about how things are bound and held together. I think something’s value is in its relationship to everything else. Work in the joints; where things connect.” Brooklyn-based project Yoke Lore is the new musical venture of Adrian Galvin, previously of Yellerkin and Walk the Moon. Yoke Lore layers the harmonies of Panda Bear, the soulful beats of M83, and the modern pop of Blackbird Blackbird to tell “the stories of how we are bound.” Galvin’s songs start with the folksy timbre of a banjo and add echoing waves of vocals and percussion to create unforgettable pop music with tactile sincerity and conviction.

Galvin grew up in an artistic family, his mother a director and his father an actor and sculptor. He was immersed in painting, photography, and ballet from an early age, eventually finding his first musical passion in the drums. While pursuing music, his artistry in other disciplines has not faltered, even lending his own artwork as the cover of his 2016 debut EP, Far Shore. It received glowing reviews from Consequence of Sound, Pigeons & Planes, The Fader, NYLON, and more. Far Shore achieved over 4 million Spotify streams, 3 Hype Machine top ten singles, and songs from the EP were featured in MTV’s The Real World and Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet. Galvin ended 2016 on a fall tour with Elliot Moss and a winter run of dates supporting Handsome Ghost.

When he’s not writing and recording new music, Galvin can be found teaching yoga or performing with his modern dance company Boomerang in Brooklyn. The physicality of his dance background helps Galvin communicate his message and connect with an audience while performing on stage as Yoke Lore. The live show finds Galvin using his entire being to connect his words and movement in a physical performance of the songs.

After kicking off 2017 with shows playing alongside Shura, Wild Child, and Urban Cone (as well as at Savannah Stopover and SXSW), Yoke Lore spent most of his spring and summer on the road. He supported Overcoats in the US and then traveled overseas for The Great Escape and a UK tour with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. In June, he released his sophomore EP, Goodpain featuring the single of the same name that has since hit over 3 million Spotify streams. Yoke Lore played festivals all summer on the east and west coasts, leading up the the Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival in August. That same month, he recorded a cover of Savage Garden’s “Truly, Madly, Deeply” for Spotify Sessions that hit Spotify’s Top 10 Viral chart. In the fall, he toured with Overcoats again and then supported Aquilo to end the year. Yoke Lore began 2018 with his first headline tour, and he’ll be supporting FRENSHIP on tour through the spring.
Dan Sadin
Dan Sadin is a Los Angeles based musician who invites you in with his intentional, raw guitar and vocals only to keep you coming back for the songs. Currently known for his guitar work in the group Frenship, Sadin is releasing music this year for the first time under his own name. Born from short breaks between long tours, Sadin self produced, wrote and recorded in his own garage studio, creating songs that sound both fresh and warmly familiar at the same time. His music is colored with the same reverence for honest songwriting and performance that his heroes had before him. Growing up in San Francisco, Dan Sadin lost himself in a world of songs and classic guitars by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Bruce Springsteen, and Fleetwood Mac. Here he discovered the union of raw guitar and personal songs delivered with powerful, memorable words and melodies. Always seeking to serve the song, Sadin, uses the guitar as the heart and soul of his work as a producer, performer and songwriter. His unique and passionate style of playing can be found on records from Sabrina Claudio and Jessie Ware to Frenship and MØ. In the spring of 2018 Dan Sadin will be opening on tour for his longtime friends/bandmates in Frenship and releasing his first series of singles.
