Comprised of Addie Sartino, Brandon Yangmi, Pierce Turcotte, and Austin Fraser, the spirit of purposeful sharing has served as something of a lifeline for Kansas City-band The Greeting Committee. Formed in 2014, soon after Sartino and Yangmi got their start playing local open-mic nights, the band self-released their debut EP It's Not All That Bad in fall 2015. The EP's lead single Hands Down quickly became a breakout hit, paving the way for The Greeting Committee's signing to Harvest Records when they were all still in high school.
Nicholas Lussier and Charles Dahlke formed the Brazen Youth within the otherworldly vacuum of the 300-year-old Ashlawn Farm, located in Lyme, Connecticut. Timeless and freeing, Ashlawn served as a perfect birthplace of the Brazen Youth's debut, The Ever Dying Bristlecone Man. A heavily conceptual record, Ever Dying is a world with endless nooks in which you can lose yourself, containing meticulous threads of layered tracks and arrangements that amplify the emotionally riveting nature of these lyric-driven songs. Upon adding Micah Rubin to the band's lineup, The Brazen Youth emerged with a wild-spirited presence into the East Coast scene, soon gaining an empowered and fresh fan base. The band released two more bodies of work: their sophomore record Primitive Initiative (2018), and their EP 15 Billion Eyes (2019), and toured the US extensively up until 2020.
After making their Harvest debut with the Meeting People Is Easy EP in 2017 and the subsequent release of This Is It, the band spent much of the next few years on the road, with sold-out headline shows in major markets such as Chicago, Austin, New York, Los Angeles and Minneapolis. To date, they've toured with the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club, Tennis, Hippo Campus, and Rainbow Kitten Surprise and taken the stage at leading festivals like Lollapalooza and SXSW, in addition to delivering the I'm Afraid I'm Not Angry EP in late 2019 and appearing in Netflix's To All the Boys: Always and Forever in 2021. The coming months have a lot more in store from the band with their second album out on September 24th entitled Dandelion.
