August Hotel
August Hotel
August Hotel is an indie pop band based out of Chicago, composed of Joe Padilla (vocals), Ryan Lammers (guitar/production), Craig Schwartz, Jr (keyboards), Dean Sinclair (drums), and Cale Singleton (bass). Their propensity for merging euphoric synthpop with reflective indie rock manifested itself in the band’s self-produced single “12AM.” Shortly after its release, “12AM” received airplay on Chicago’s 101WKQX and was declared “an indie pop giant” and "one of the coolest things that we’ve ever seen or heard" by London’s Killing Moon, who later featured the song on their compilation New Moons, Vol. VII. August Hotel has been seen opening for the likes of The Kickback and Knox Hamilton, as well as headlining several clubs around Chicago and the Midwest. Following a steady rise over the past year, the beginning of 2017 finds the band in the studio, wrapping production on their upcoming EP. August Hotel is — in the words of Vox Magazine — “a band on the cusp of a breakthrough journey.”
Bardo
Bardo
Bardo is an enigmatic musician and producer who set his sights on reaching the upper echelons of music and nothing will persuade him to alter what he considers his predestined plan. Armed with undeniable talent and a ridiculous work ethic, Bardo spends most of his days creating complex arrangements that satiate his fans' desire for authentic, well-produced music. Bardo understands that creating music is a gift. He considers it a timeless craft he was born to squeeze every ounce of passion from. Music feeds his soul and he plans to deliver on the promise he made to himself a long time ago—to put everything he has into his music and to share this gift with the world.

Bardo's love for music started long before he could identify a chord progression or a guitar riff. He recalls his parents exposing him to British phenom, Omar, and such American artists as The Roots and a Tribe Called Quest, when he was very young. He first started writing rhymes to test his skills at the age of twelve and knew he was onto something good. While in high school, he would spend hours freestyling, filling notebooks with lyrics and arranging music. By then, his soul was set ablaze.
