GRIND
GRIND
Started in 2014 by members of two other established bands in the Tulsa music scene, GRIND is a four piece rock band that carries a sound centered and influenced by Rock's heydays. Already being described as “one of the best bands you haven't heard of yet,” GRIND is a grip and rip it rock band that works to make sure everyone who comes to the shows has a good time.
Skytown
Skytown
Skytown is a consistently top-ranked, Acoustic Rock band from Tulsa, OK (ReverbNation.com) The early days of Skytown consisted of Dale Crain (Vocals/Lead Guitar), Tim Burress (Vocals/Acoustic Guitar), Blake Sullivan (Bass), and Eliot Cooper (Drums). In 2012 the four started writing and recording original songs. They began playing for friends and family which soon escalated to playing larger house parties. After playing a few small bars and even auditioning potential members, it was by chance that Jason Ford was at his local watering hole when he saw the band for the first time. Impressed by what he saw and heard, Jason approached the band asking if they needed another acoustic guitar player and volunteered for the job. A couple of weeks later after a quick audition, the band was complete and as they say, the rest is history. After receiving extremely positive feedback from crowds and venue owners they were playing for, the freshly charged Skytown decided it was time to take their music to the masses. After playing just one show with the complete lineup in Tulsa, word spread quickly that there was a "new sound" in town and Skytown's phone started blowing up! Skytown has since been booked every week, playing upwards of 3 shows a weekend, and have no plans on slowing down or letting up! The band is being contacted on a weekly basis by venues and talent buyers looking to entertain their patrons and the venues have NOT been disappointed with most venues re-booking Skytown for another show as soon as they leave the stage! Skytown not only packs the house but they also bring it down! With an extremely energetic live show with plenty of crowd participation, Skytown continues to attract new fans and new listeners every time they play out. The band is currently booking shows 7 - 8 weeks in advance and doesn't see it slowing down any time soon. In 2014 alone, Skytown has had the privilege to share the stage with such national acts as: All About a Bubble, We the Ghost, Framing the Red, Dellacoma, Black Hole Gypsy, Fists of Rage, Drugs Delaney, Seven Days Lost, Sage Cook of Elephant Revival and many others!
Most recently Skytown traveled to Denver, CO to record their first EP with producers Glenn Sawyer and Rich Veltrop (production credits include Tom Petty, Rage Against the Machine, Macy Gray, Sophie B. Hawkins and many others) at The Spot Studios. Check out the music tab for the unreleased EP!
The band is working on their release campaign and expects a physical disc to debut in 2015 coinciding with a national tour.
Kovalent
Kovalent
Kovalent is a progressive rock band from Muskogee Ok. The band was formed by bassist Travis Cates and Vocalist Tim Moore of the Tulsa based heavy metal band, No Void in 2016 as an acoustic duo playing rock and metal cover tunes with an acoustic twist. After some success playing the local club scene, John Paul Cates joined the band on percussion and the trio began writing songs. As the music started to flow, the band quickly realized the direction was changing from an acoustic project to a full band production and in early 2017, Ralph Ayers was added to the line-up on lead guitar. Immediately, work began on their first studio recording, a six track EP called Legends. Legends was released online August 15th and has quickly gained traction. The album has been picked up by numerous online radio stations and was reviewed by UK music magazine, “Fireworks”. Recently, Kovalent was nominated for a Tulsa local music award in the category of best home away from home group. Currently the band is playing the local circuit in Tulsa and plans are being made for a small tour in support of their album.
