The Wright Brothers
The Wright Brothers
Jonny, Jacob, Joe and Jeremy Wright are four of seven siblings who were raised in a musical household. With innumerable rock, pop, progressive, electronic and classical music influences- "The Wright Brothers" music is the culmination of discovering, learning, playing, studying and writing music since they were children.

In the vein of the next generation of bands who are carrying the torch sparked by bands like U2, with anthemic songs: Muse, Coldplay, M83, Sigur Ros, Angels and Airwaves, Thirty Seconds to Mars, and Imagine Dragons, to name a few- The Wright Brothers tendancy is to lean toward the sonically cinematic as a rock form, bringing soaring, melodic, uplifting, orchestral, and sometimes ambient elements to the already big guitars, heavy drums, keys, piano and synths that are featured in their music.

On Christmas Day, 2012- The Wright Brothers released their self-produced, inaugural EP "You, Me and the Universe" - a collection of 6 songs that all carry the underlying theme of love, romance, awe, wonder, exaltation, joy and elation.
The concept of "You, Me, and the Universe" - as depicted by the title and cover art, which portrays silhouettes of a young boy and girl, holding hands as they gaze into the grandeur of deep space- is the concept of innocence, youth and romance, juxtaposed against the awe and wonder of the vastness of existence. It is this perspective of love, awe and wonder that inspires the music of The Wright Brothers- a feeling that they hope translates sonically through their music.
Ester Drang
Ester Drang
Ester Drang has composed a sweet daydream trip since its 1995 formation. Bryce Chambers, Sterling Williams, and Brian Brewer were fans of Echo & the Bunnymen, My Bloody Valentine, and Mogwai and together they derived a lush, bittersweet sound. Goldenwest marked Ester Drang's debut in 2001; this shimmery masterpiece was a critical hit among the indie crowd and gained the trio shared dates with the likes of the Get up Kids, Wheat, and the Starlight Mints. Three years later, Williams and Brewer were out; Kyle Winner (bass), Jeff Shoop (guitar/synths), and James McAlister (drums/piano) were added to the group, allowing Ester Drang's shoegazer-drenched style to grow. Infinite Keys, their first for Jade Tree, captured Ester Drang's newfound confidence when it was released in April 2003.
Future Tapes
Future Tapes
Future Tapes is the aftermath of previous project called Summit, a loud indie rock band, both led by Christian Sanchez. After a year of downtime and touring with other bands such as Nuns, a psychedelic rock band from Tulsa who has toured with national touring acts such as The Kills and Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance, Christian began writing again with another sound in mind. Future Tapes is a blend of Alternative bands such as Local Natives and The Neighborhood with more synthesizers and influences of the 80’s.
