Emery: Like From Autumn to Ashes, Nora, and Hopesfall, Emery combine an alternative pop/rock foundation with elements of screamo and melodic hardcore. A Christian theme also runs throughout the band's music, which often examines the contrasts between Heaven/Hell, melody/brutality, and conventional singing/guttural screaming. Formed in South Carolina in 2001, the band originally included the talents of recent college graduates Toby Morrell (vocals, guitar), Matt Carter (guitar), Joel Green (bass), Devin Shelton (guitar), Josh Head (keyboards), and Seth Studley (drums). After weighing their options, Emery's members decided that Seattle would be a better environment for a burgeoning band, prompting the group to move westward in September 2001. Sherwood: Not many bands that have played the Vans Warped Tour claim the Beatles and the Beach Boys as their musical idols. Sherwood, an indie quintet from San Luis Obispo, California, fit neatly alongside the pop-punk likes of Yellowcard and other post-Green Day acts, but with an unapologetic power pop side that gives them a distinctly melodic edge. BC Podcast: Matt, Toby & Joey of The BadChristian Podcast have spent the last sixteen years in bars, churches, tour buses, counseling sessions, wild parties, prayer circles, and circles of people doing drugs. It’s given them a perspective that’s too interesting to keep to themselves, so they write about it, talk about it, sing about it, and create experiences for others who, like them, don’t feel like they fit into traditional molds. Vocal Few: Vocal Few is a singer/songwriter folk-pop duo singing songs about travel & change & dreams & heartache. We formed in Seattle, WA, in 2011. Both our formation and debut EP were motivated by the impending birth of our first daughter. Now we make music for ourselves and have more albums than children. Life's a trip. A road trip.
