The Brevet
When the feedback-laden, distorted-as-all-hell guitar intro to The Brevet’s new single, “Locked & Loaded,” grinds to a crawl and lead singer Aric Chase Damm’s gritty vocals kick in, there’s a moment where—if you’ve got an ounce of soul in your body—your foot starts tapping almost involuntarily. The “woah-oh-oh” hook that hits next is the kind you feel in your bones, the eminently danceable kind that makes you want to shoot straight up, kick your chair back, and move. Every second “Locked & Loaded” begs for movement, an earworm that simply refuses to quit. And making the tune all the more impressive, in a testament to the group’s raw creativity and artistic ability, is the fact that The Brevet engineered and produced the track at the group’s recording space in Westminster, CA—where they’d also recorded their first two albums.

As the lead single off the band’s upcoming record, LEGS, “Locked & Loaded” performs a crucial task: Not only is it a representation of the band’s new sound and of what fans can expect from the forthcoming album; it is an indication of how far the band has come since their previous release, American Novel—a groundbreaking, highly acclaimed LP, released in a series of chapters.

American Novel, the group’s sophomore album, was preceded by the Brevet’s debut record, Battle of the Heart, and earned the band features and beaming reviews in such notable publications as Paste magazine, the Los Angeles Times, the Deli, Substream, OC Weekly, and many more. Per Substream’s Stephanie Roe: “There are just some moments in life that could use an extravagant soundtrack to make it feel complete. The Brevet are here to help you do just that.”

American Novel also opened the door for The Brevet in the form of some amazing opportunities: Songs from the record have been featured in movies like An Open Secret, The Good Lie, and Ashby; on TV shows such as Growing up Fisher, NCIS New Orleans, 90210, and even American Idol; and on TV networks like the MLB Network and the SEC Network (ESPN).

While the band has certainly enjoyed the exposure, as well as the accolades they’ve received from critics and fans alike, they’re particularly excited for the release of their upcoming single—because, to Damm, it sets the stage for a tighter, more mature, redefined Brevet. It represents a band who, having already achieved significant commercial success, is free to be as creative as they want, driving their music in a wholly new direction.

Damm, who helms the band as its primary creative force—though, of course, his fellow members contribute to the writing, engineering, and production process—says, of the band’s new sound:, that “Locked & Loaded”

We’re writing in a way we want to write now. I’m not trying to follow trends; I just want to write from my heart.”
Edison (Album Release)
Edison (Album Release)
EDISON, singer/guitarist Sarah Slaton, multi-instrumentalist, Dustin Morris, and Grammy-nominated guitarist, Maxwell Hughes (formerly of The Lumineers) - is an indie rock trio from Colorado which has quickly emerged as a musical force. Edison has quickly formed a national fan base thanks to their high-energy live shows and tireless touring efforts. In addition to countless club gigs, they've earned attention at such music industry conferences as SXSW, CMJ Music Marathon and Folk Alliance International. "We've been on the road nonstop for over a year", Slaton notes. "We didn't have a lot of releases out there so we decided to hit the road and meet as many people as we could and foster those relationships." That strategy worked, winning the band a devoted national audience as well as support slots with the likes of Iron & Wine, Langhorne Slim, Andrew McMahon and Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats.

Edison was conceived out of the search for meaning after the chaos of extreme loss. Slaton wrote most of the initial music for Edison as a therapeutic practice to make it through the labyrinth of suffering inflicted by the loss of her mother who lost a long and arduous battle against the vicious disease, cancer. In extreme loss, the path can be found to clarity and hope.

Edison was birthed in 2014 after Sarah Slaton played support to Dustin Morris’ band Brave Song Circle. They traveled to the SXSW Music Festival together and on that journey, Edison was born. Slaton had been writing and playing with the idea of the songs for many years but it was the addition of the multi-instrumentalist that really brought the music together. Not long after, Maxwell Hughes played support to Edison on their tour to SXSW and again, fate would have that Edison needed a 3rd to round out their sound. Since 2015, Edison has been touring as a trio gaining a fanbase and network across the country. In March 2016, Edison signed to the New Jersey-based independent label Rhyme and Reason Records who released the first Edison LP in September 2016. Named “Denver Darlings” by the BolderBeat, Edison’s road warrior ethic and lysergic modern folk sound has created something of a cult following in Colorado and beyond.

"Though it’s a proper studio release, the nine-track effort in a way captures exactly what the band’s been doing the last 12 months: bringing music to life." - Consequence of Sound
