The Unlikely Candidates

Based out of Fort Worth, Texas, The Unlikely Candidates are an indie rock band initially formed as an acoustic duo by childhood friends Kyle Morris and Cole Male in 2008. Eventually expanding the lineup to include guitarist Brenton Carney, bassist Jared Hornbeek, and drummer Kevin Goddard, the band was also able to expand its sound in bigger, more sweeping directions. In 2013, the band signed on to major-label Atlantic and released their debut EP, Follow My Feet. In early 2016, The Unlikely Candidates returned with a hooky new single in "Your Love Could Start a War," which made a strong showing on Billboard's Alternative Songs chart.

Former professional soccer player from Seattle, Brady Balley, met Tulsa brothers Will (guitar) and Charlie (drums) when soccer took him to the southern plains. Beachfriends took shape in 2018 and began putting out their warm pop sound to the world in 2020. Beachfriends includes touring members: Jacob Hunter (keys) and Jordan O'dell (bass). Beachfriends is featured on Spotify playlists: Soda, Fresh Finds: Pop, and Apple Music's "New in Alternative".
