K's Choice
K's Choice
K's Choice has always been a hard band to pin down to a single style, and as a result, was one of the few bands of the late '90s to build followings with both the Lilith Fair and Lollapalooza factions. As evidenced by their fifth full-length overall (and first in a decade), 2010's 'Echo Mountain,' the group's knack for the eclectic remains very much intact. "It's always been like that," explains one of the group's co-founders, singer/guitarist Sarah Bettens. "There's always been that singer-songwriter part of us, and then the rock part that stems from the music we listen to and the music we write. There's also that pop element in our songwriting and the attention to our harmonies. When it comes to K's Choice songwriting, there is not a concerted effort of what we should be, it's just an honest mix of the style of songs we end up writing. Even when we felt like we were coming from two worlds in the initial phase of writing this record, it somehow blended together into something that's melodic and has a lot of dynamics without losing its emphasis of heartfelt lyrics and interesting harmonies."

Originally formed in the early '90s by the brother-sister tandem of guitarist/singer Gert and Sarah Bettens (hailing from Antwerp, Belgium), the group built a large worldwide fan base, on the strength of such strong and varied albums as 1993's 'The Great Subconscious Club,' 1996's 'Paradise in Me,' 1998's 'Cocoon Crash' and 2000's 'Almost Happy.' Add to it a worldwide hit single (1996's "Not An Addict"), European hits "Believe", "Almost Happy" and "Everything For Free", plus some very high profile tour opportunities (opening for Alanis Morissette for the majority of the dates supporting her classic 'Jagged Little Pill' album, as well as part of the aforementioned Lilith Fair tours), and a long and fruitful career lay ahead for K's Choice.
A Fragile Tomorrow
A Fragile Tomorrow
Formed in 2003 by brothers Sean, Dominic, and Brendan Kelly in their parents' basement and followed by the addition of Shaun Rhoades in 2006, A Fragile Tomorrow has four self-released studio albums under their belt, as well as a number of singles and EPs. Following the release of 2013's Mitch Easter-produced 'Be Nice Be Careful', the band signed with New York-based label MPress Records.

Featuring notable contributions from the likes of folk legend Joan Baez, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers of Indigo Girls, Mark Hart of Crowded House, Vicki Peterson of The Bangles, and John Cowsill of The Beach Boys, 'Make Me Over' follows years of touring with such artists as Matthew Sweet, Toad The Wet Sprocket, The Bangles, Indigo Girls, K's Choice, Antigone Rising, and more. The 'Be Nice Be Careful' tour concluded with a run of sold-out shows in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg supporting K's Choice.

Dressed in layers of dense guitars and harmonies, their latest release, 'Make Me Over' takes the mystery of rock n' roll androgyny and combines it with songs of accessible complexity. Self-produced by the band and recorded at Sean and Dominic's Low Watt Recording in Savannah, GA, the album explores new sonic territory inspired by the bold, explorative musical aesthetic of David Bowie, T. Rex, and Brian Wilson as well as the frantic energy of Cheap Trick and The Who.
