Drowning Pool
Drowning Pool
Drowning Pool turned the world into believers with their breakthrough single "Bodies" in 2001. Ten years and four albums later, they gave fans a new reason to believe. "Feel Like I Do," the lead single from their self-titled fourth studio release [Eleven Seven Music, 2010], became the band's biggest radio hit to date, reaching No. 2 at Active Rock Radio, and remaining in the Top 5 for 12-weeks. With 2009's "37 Stitches" off of Full Circle reaching #4 at Active Rock and "Feel Like I Do," the band had 2 consecutive Top 5 Active Rock smashes and cemented their place as one of the top hard rock acts today. The band's sophomore album, Desensitized with second singer Jason Jones spawned a Top 10 hit with "Step Up." Recent successes have paved the way for unique opportunities such as presenting the Lane Evans Mental Health Care Reform to then-senator Barack Obama on Capitol Hill, performing for our troops all over the world and partnering with organizations like The Wounded Warrior Project and the G.I. Film Festival.

In an exclusive interview in the September 2012 issue of Guitar World magazine, Drowning Pool announced that fellow Texan Jasen Moreno is their new lead singer. The band's fifth album and their first with Moreno is due out early 2013. The band teamed up with producer Kato Khandwalla at House of Loud Studios in New Jersey as well as John Feldmann earlier this year, and will be finishing the album in Dallas.

Drowning Pool is C.J. Pierce – guitar/ vocals, Stevie Benton – bass/vocals, Mike Luce – drums/vocals and Jasen Moreno/vocals.
Nashville-based rock outfit RED comprises Michael Barnes (vocals), Anthony Armstrong (guitar) Randy Armstrong (bass) and Joe Rickard (drums).

Together, its three prior albums -- End of Silence (2006), Innocence & Instinct (2009), and Until We Have Faces (2011) -- have sold nearly 1 million units, garnering two GRAMMY nominations, five GMA Dove Awards, two Top 10 Active Rock singles, three Top 10 Mainstream Rock singles and 10 consecutive No. 1 hits at Christian radio.

Most recently, RED’s Until We Have Faces (Feb. 1, 2011) was the highest national debut at No. 2 on the coveted Billboard Top 200. Additionally, the project topped the following Nielsen SoundScan charts: Current Hard Music, Current Rock Music, Current Alternative, Christian Rock, Current Contemporary Christian Album and Record Label Independent charts. Also its debut week, two of the album’s songs were spotlighted on national TV, with TBS’ “Conan” featuring “Faceless” and NBC’s “Tonight Show with Jay Leno” highlighting “Not Alone.”

In addition, RED is known for its relentless touring, performing alongside notable rock names such as Hinder, 3 Doors Down, Creed, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, Godsmack, Sevendust, Drowing Pool, Flyleaf, Seether, Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Saving Abel, Staind, Third Day, Switchfoot, Skillet and others. Rave reviews for the band’s live shows and albums have been featured in top media outlets including Billboard, USA Today, Modern Drummer Magazine, Rolling Stone and Guitar World.
We The Ghost
We The Ghost
Urban Acoustic, Indie, Reggae, Singer-Songwriter, Rock n Roll... Call it what you will, Midtown Tulsa’s We The Ghost has an unexplainable chemistry and authenticity that cannot be faked.

With the culmination of the simple goals of creating great music and performing a one of a kind live show, We The Ghost have positioned at the upper echelon of the heartland music scene. In their infancy We The Ghost won 3 awards at the 2012 A.B.O.T that included Best Indie Rock Band, Song of the Year, and Best Male Vocalist. They spent 15 consecutive weeks in the top 10 of the FanFav’s chart at Streamcult.com. Even more impressive, We The Ghost have performed live in studio at Z104.5 The Edge, 106.9 K-Hits, 97.5 KMOD, on Fox TV’s Daybreak, Fox TV’s Great Day Green Country, and DirecTv's Oklahoma Live. The band has also been busy playing high profile festivals such as Rocklahoma, Free Tulsa Music Festival, Sundance Film Festival, Las Vegas's Indie Music Festival, and RiverFest.

Not wasting any time We The Ghost have already released three albums in their first year as a band. Their debut studio album “My Mixtape Summer” was released in February 2012 followed by a live album from their performance on 97.5 KMOD in April 2012. Most recently, in December 2012, the band released their best and most well produced album to date, "White Noise". The album, in less than a month, has outsold their previous two releases combined.

We The Ghost is: Beau Tyler - Singer / Songwriter / Acoustic Guitar, Jocelyn Rowland - Violin / Vocals, Dain Samuelson - Djimbe, Jimmy Dean Adams - Drums / Bass, Kris Stone - Keys, Matt McHan - Lead Guitar / Vocals.

According to Lead Vocalist Beau Tyler We The Ghost formed out of loss but soon became the inspiration to move on. “I was at the end of a long and terrible relationship and after the death of several friends, I sold my home in Dallas and moved to Tulsa, OK. I was crashing on Dain's couch, totally depressed and didn't even move for at least a couple of weeks. Finally, one day Dain came in and handed me a guitar and forced me to start writing again. Those songs quickly became our first album.”

Tyler stated the passion from the musicians that came together to become We The Ghost have not only created something that is intensely personal but also original.

“When something is so beautifu l that it allows me to return to my pre-instrumentalist innocence, it's a beautiful thing. My favorite aspect of being a performing musician is the look on a crowd's face when they're enjoying our music and I can tell they've never heard anything like it. It's like we've created a breath of fresh air for everyone. Which is our ultimate goal.”
