The Secret Post
The Secret Post
The Secret Post is the brainchild of Zachariah Wiser. The Post came into existence in early 2004, as an outlet for Zachariah's post-punk/New Wave influences to flourish. The Post started out as Zachariah himself, all alone, recording home demo's, as he was busy with WiseMan at the time. Zachariah moved back to Tulsa, his hometown, in the summer of 2006. He quickly began the hunt for members to make this project come to life. The Secret Post made a huge impact on the Tulsa scene a few short months later with a string of shows unlike that of which Tulsa hadn't seen in years. With Post-Punk long gone, this band decided to bring it back with the passion and stature of a brand new genre. The band is led by Zachariah's brooding vocals, and metaphorical lyrics about sex, death, despair, and love...with his melancholic and sometimes Staccato jerky rhythm guitar leading the way. He is backed by Nicoli on the drums, pounding like a ton of sullen bricks, with driving and steady flow, along with M on Bass, reminiscent of Peter Hook/Simon Gallup's attack/lead style of playing. Then we have Aleks on lead guitar, surrounded by mystery, you never know just exactly how far he will go off the deep end of emotion. Finally with Timothy DeCasper on synth, he provides the thick, stringed backdrop for Zachariah's songs in the fashion of a wall of sound. We, The Secret Post are stronger than ever, and have started our attack on the scene once again, not to retreat, but to strike at the core of your heart and soul, and make our presence known. With influences such as The Cure, Bauhaus, The Chameleons UK, Interpol, The Sound, Depeche Mode, Joy Division, and The Cult brimming in our music, how can we go wrong? The upcoming EP entitled "Fields of Fire" will be out November 17th, 2012. So stay tuned, and be watching for us, we are coming to a city near you soon...this is OUR winter, OUR year.
Kill the Reflection
Kill the Reflection
Alternative/Post-Punk/Rock. Oklahoma City's own, Music for broken people. KTR is singer/guitarist, Morgan Routt, bassist, Mark Martinez and drummer, Christopher Stevens. Haunting, devilish, sexy, dark & brooding music that rips your lovers heart out & explains your pain in a whirlwind of emotion. We have created a cure, a type of... Music for broken people. A precise depiction of what it means to dwell within our emotions. A tragic reminder for love of the obscure, and the maniac within. KTR is dirt, sex and necessary roughness...

"I wasn't just bored or looking for a hobby, I really feel compelled to let these feelings out. And the more I see my thoughts and visions on paper or in photo or music playback, the more I can analyze and try and figure it all out. Plus it helps me remember a struggle. Sometimes I feel like I'm just trying to create my own favorite band because I don't hear what I want in today's music, not that it's not there because if you look hard enough you can still find it. I don't expect everyone to agree with what I consider beautiful, because I know I have sick way of finding beauty in thing's, so not everyone will get it. I just hope that I can distill some level of comfort in the people that do get it." - MR

A hum rattles inside my brain like a dripping faucet, broken beats and rhythmatic tones echo about and seem to hypnotize my bleeding brain. It's a sound that never sleeps and screams to be written down.

KTR has been featured both on local radio stations Rock 100.5fm the KATT and theSPYfm. They have shared the stage with bands like: Neon Trees, Carolina Liar, Standing Shadows, mr.Gnome. They have been a featured artist on Oklavision.TV (presented by the Chickasaw Nation) & Rock 100.5fm the KATT. Director Patrick George (Dead Film Festival award winner) is doing a documentary on the band, and music video work from director Jonathan Shahan is on the works as well as another show with Rolling Stone's "Band to watch" for, mr.Gnome, in November 2012.

Kill the Reflection's latest album "Together... Apart..." can be found on iTunes.com & CDbaby.com, and they are currently writing new material to record their new EP for 2012.

Young Lyons
Young Lyons
Young Lyons is a three piece alternative pop rock band from Tulsa, OK. The band was formed in spring of 2012 when John Lyons (vocals/guitar) recruited bassist Paul Cristiano and producer Brad Mitcho to collaborate on a new batch of songs. After some quick success writing, John and Paul decided to further their association under the name Young Lyons (a name suggested by Brad) and subsequently added drummer Kayle Greiman. While the band takes it's cues from the modern electro-pop recipe, Young Lyons certainly isn't afraid to take chances and has a sound that is solely their own. Their debut EP arrives Fall 2012.
