Jason Crowden 
Main Songwriter/Vocals/Guitars

In my early twenties, a couple of friends and I formed a cover band and we began playing locally. Although, it was fun & profitable, I wanted to do more with music. I began writing original music around the age of 24 and recorded an EP with my cover band when I was 25 in Atlanta, GA. I went back to playing covers until I met Steve Fennell. We started recording songs immediately, & I knew this would be a project that would go well beyond anything I’ve done in the past. The creative influence that Steve has contributed to this project has allowed me to grow greatly as a musician. I am excited about the potential this project has and I can’t wait to see what the future of After Alice will bring.

After Alice is an Alternative/Indie/Power Pop/Rock/ band that is taking the music industry to a new level with there outstanding lead vocals, blended harmonies, classic guitars, addictive melody's with a unique driving force and edge that adds a new dimension to the industry's multi genre sound.

Introduction:

Indie Detroit Americana Music born from the blues of Black Bottom, mothered by the soul of Motown, and raised by the rhythm of the Rock City.

In summer of 2014, singer/ songwriter Frankie Jason Turner moved from his suburban Detroit home to a small apartment in New York City about six blocks from Central Park. Recently signed to BMG/Chrysalis Music Publishing, he made the trek to see the music industry up close and hopefully find a place for his personal brand of songs.

Out of the time he spent throwing himself against the overwhelming monster that it is Manhattan came the EXILE NEW YORK EP by Turner's band THE GENTLEMEN MUTINEERS. Recorded in a studio in midtown, EXILE NEW YORK is a dark, acoustic Americana EP that mixes old school blues, soul and country with modern recording techniques.

The four tunes are both personal and universal lyrically, revealing a search for ones space and purpose against a complicated past, an unseeable future, and all the temptations of the world.

SPAWN is a high energy brass fuelled skapunk band from the Netherlands, keeping the beat rocksteady and the upstrokes a-skankin'. The band consist of guitar, bass, drums, keys, horns and vocals.

In October 2016, SPAWN released "Dance of the Lunatics".  "With their third album, they've definitely found the groove and locked it down. "Dance of the Lunatics" is a huge, bouncing, sweaty dance machine perched on 14 legs and having the time of its life." [Louder Than War, 2016] The new album is available on all major streaming and music platforms, such as Spotify, iTunes and Amazon.

Since releasing "Dance of the Lunatics", SPAWN have featured on many Dutch, English and American radio shows. “This is so much fun. You’re gonna love this. Mega riffs, Killer beats and some serious funk. Fuuuunk!” [Soundsphere magazine, 2016]  The new album opened new doors and the 'Dance of the Lunatics Tour' has energized many clubs, pubs and festivals. 

SPAWN consist of Roel Wensink (guitar & lead vocals), Paul Heijnen (drums), David van Lochem (bass), Jaap Bulsink (keys), Erik Rhebergen (trumpet & backing vocals), Derk Wikkerink (saxophone & backing vocals) and Mark Koeleman (trombone, backing vocals & percussion).

SPAWN was formed in 2001 as punk trio. Adding a trumpet player in 2002 and a saxophone player in 2004, at that time the band switched to playing ska music with a punky twist. SPAWNTANEOUS was released in 2005 (album of the month at the National Pop Institute). Their music video “Spam” was broadcast by MTV Networks for several weeks, earning the band national exposure. HOSDROPLOS was released in 2008, gaining access to major Dutch venues like Paradiso and Zwarte Cross Festival.

Having played hundreds of shows, SPAWN know how to get the party started and going. They have been around for more than 15 years and “Dance of the Lunatics” proofs that they are far from done!

Introduction:

Hailing from Hempstead, New York, part of the urbanized suburbs of Long Island, Phabian “S-Quire” Winfield rose onto the scene with his local hit “How We Do.” The classic feel-good hip-hop stylings of the track were enhanced by the smooth featured vocal of Marvin Moore, lead singer of Grammy Award-wining Product G&B (“Maria, Maria”). The infectious hook resonated with listeners when S-Quire inked a single distribution deal. With his debut album in the works, S-Quire plans on building on the momentum of his current singles to ride a wave to the head of hip-hop’s new class.

It was a fateful moment six years ago that led S-Quire to forge a career in music. He had been involved in a car accident, and unable to move about or leave his home, he sat down late one night and began to write. He released his thoughts and ideas onto paper, and they became the beginnings of his early composition for the project. Drawing inspiration from greats as diverse as LL Cool J, Marvin Gaye, and Keith Sweat, S-Quire realized how much time he had put into writing and listening to instrumentals and decided he was ready to turn music into his full time job.

Introduction:

Hagen Bretschneider (idea, sound concept, bass) and Lennart Hüper (rhythm guitar) have always focussed on instrumental compositions. They have concentrated on their own material, producing their first album "Dead Cat on a Railroad Track" in 2013.

This work was a production using only guitars, bass and drum machine. Following their success they decided to develop their music together resulting in "Lunatic Asylum" released in 2015. Hagen and Lennart were joined by Nico Walser, who produced Lunatic Asylum as well as playing lead guitar and synthesizers. This collaboration blossomed further on their third album "Wrong Planet" featuring producer and guest musician Nico Walser again. The compositions on the first album were largely rooted in blues rock, however on Wrong Planet their music can sound like Sabbath or Zeppelin from the 70s but they combine these licks with dynamic patches from the drum machine of the 80s.

The Hannover duo's style is steeped in ambiant music interspersed with melodic guitar riffs. These arrangements are sometimes inspired by the Icelandic band Sigur Ros, especially by their use of a violin bow played on the guitar, and the guitar solos would not sound out of place on a Camel or Pink Floyd album.

Introduction:

This is Taff from Greece, they have posted in the forum. Here is my review about this synthpop/indie artist who has released his first song called "Before It's Too Late" that will be available in all digital outlets in 2 days. The song starts with a lovely intro, just like you listen to the wind going to your hair, then comes his vocals, and wow, he can sing high and pure. I really love the vibration in his voice, it has something of Micheal Jackson. The lyrics are well written, and I really get goosebumps when he sings, the song is uptempo and down tempo at the same time, really love the mix. This singer from Greece has an amazing vocal reach, and this is new talent that deserves a platform to grow in fans, streams and sales. The song is high quality music and his voice is gifted, this singer can go very far with his talent. I can not stop listening to it, it is so amazingly good. It has all elements to become a massive hit song. And I keep listening because I hear a tiny part of Micheal in it, especially due to the vibration and the higher notes. This is till now their only song but if this is already a hit song material what will the rest be, I am really impressed by this music project from Greece. Mark my words when you listen to their song, you would love it and become addicted to their song. This has to be heard in all countries, and being played at all radio stations that exist in this world. Therefore, share this review with these new legends in pop music on it, and to be honest I like their song more than a lot that I daily hear at MTV or other charts and channels for trending music.
