Rin Tin Tiger
Rin Tin Tiger
Rin Tin Tiger is a high energy alternative twang trio from San Francisco, CA with lot’s of lyrics and lot’s of groove. The sound is often described as a blend between early Bob Dylan, Violent Femmes, and Tupac. They have shared the stage with a wide range of bands from Blues Traveler to The Lumineers to Minus the Bear and a plethora of emerging talent all along the West Coast.

Through a little less than five years the band have earned a reputation for high octane live shows and a relentless work ethic, putting out three albums and an EP since 2011; all released independently. Their most recent album, BURIAL GROUNDS, came out in the summer of 2015 and is already receiving high praise.
Owl Paws
Owl Paws
Hailing from the foggy city of San Francisco, Owl Paws, brain child of Derek Schultz, began as a solo recording project in 2010. Soon thereafter, a trio formed featuring Timothy Vickers and Lucas Siobal. Complete with dreamy song-scapes, acoustic sonority, haunting harmony, lyrical honesty and a dynamic rythhm section, the band has created a sound that is distinctive and captivating - a uniqueness that rests in their cross-genre experimentation and a willingness to push musical boundaries. Unafraid to explore new frontiers in live music, they've performed on public transit, in caves, in clubs and in living rooms all over the West Coast. Their fourth official release will be available in mid 2014.

"A collection of experimental folk ballads that are accentuated by the heartfelt, somberly attractive voice of Derek Schultz who sings songs that tell stories of heartbreak and quiet sorrow on this new album." --Deli Magazine
Growwler
"San Francisco's G R O WW L E R creates art rock sounds that combine ebullient power pop harmonies with sophisticated weirdo music arrangements. Their new LP 'Even Tenor', after all, sounds like an army of talented musicians and producers descended upon the project to create a refreshingly rich and unique soundscape, incorporating everything from psychedelic head trips to bluesy rockers to folk-tinged melodies and countless sub-genres in between. It's a big, ambitious album in an age when most indie bands are scaling back due to either financial limitations or purposeful creative choice." - The Bay Bridged

The story begins in 2008 as King Kongress: an ambitious, yet failed 6-person ensemble from Santa Cruz. Upon a move north to San Francisco in 2009, the group pares down to power trio form & dubs themselves ladyfinger. Their debut recording ("Burnt Sienna Brown") is released in 2010 & recorded in the hills of Oregon by ex bandmate-turned-producer Ben Schaaff. After a glowing reception to its release, the band relocates to the Whiteaker District in Eugene & rechristens themselves Growwler. The subsequent single "How can you be so Sure" earned them a finalist spot in Eugene Weekly's "Next Big Thing" and artistic sponsorship via Ninkasi Brewery. A remix collaboration with Brooklyn-based Vinegar Hill Studios will follow in 2011. They permanently relocated their songcraft & musical errantry back to San Fran Bay in 2012: releasing an EP ("Shooter's Hill") and explosive music video debut to accompany (awarded "Audience Favorite" at MVR '13). Not content with "verse-chorus-verse" or a pop scene saturated with rubber artists singing fake plastic songs, Growwler is unpardonably happy making beautiful things, even if nobody cares.
