Only in their 20's, New-Jersey based hard-rocking band Roland are out to sincerely revive the genre's most headbanging and hip-thrusting moments. Full of energy, big choruses, pure stadium-ready rock, their show has a wide array of moods to keep things interesting leaving behind an electrifying presence and proves that true rock music can transcend the generation.
Shaw Davis & The Black Ties
Shaw Davis is quickly becoming an artist to watch in Contemporary Blues & Roots Rock. Born April 4, 1995, the young guitarist has burst his way onto the Blues-Rock scene and is already known for his raw and emotional style.

Backed by long-time friend, drummer Bobby Van Stone and bassist Patrick Stevenson, Shaw Davis & The Black Ties feature their own brand of Psychedelic Blues and Roots Rock that continues to win over fans and crowds across the nation. As a national touring trio, the band has played over 300 shows, headlining festivals and opening tours, allowing them to build a loyal following throughout the country. Being influenced by the sounds of vintage, heavy blues rock, they have opened shows for acts such as Samantha Fish, Chris Duarte, Mike Zito, Albert Castiglia, Matt Schofield, Popa Chubby, GE Smith, and toured with Anthony Gomes.

Formed May of 2016 out of Pompano Beach, Florida, the young power trio has made multiple appearances on Blues Radio International and has been featured in South Florida Music Magazine for their crowd-pleasing performances. In 2017 the band participated in the South Florida Blues Challenge and won their Road To Memphis, representing South Florida at the 2018 International Blues Challenge in Memphis.

Their self-titled debut album was released on June 14, 2017, to a sold-out release concert at The Funky Biscuit in Boca Raton, Florida and continues to receive steady airplay on blues/rock radio stations in the United States as well as the UK.

The debut album also received an impressive review from Blues Magazine:
“We have a new young guitar hero! Shaw Davis of South Florida. Fierce, raw guitar licks… his guitar tears, barks and bites… We will certainly enjoy this guitarist in the future.”

In January of 2018, the trio released “Alive From Legacy”, a three-track live record intended to capture the energy of the band’s live shows. After its release, the live EP received an excellent review from Rock and Blues Muse:
Dynamism, precision, and outright fury. It’s like a three-pronged sonic offensive – the guitar pierces, the bass rattles, and the drums batter. For fans of the heavier end of blues-rock, it’s a beating your eardrums will gladly take.”

October 20, 2018 brought their sophomore album to life, Tales From The West, with more impressive reviews and airplay while debuting at #20 on the Roots Music Report Blues Rock Chart.
Snow Villain
now Villain is the animal inside you that you didn’t know existed. Behind Snow Villain is musical visionary, Grant Goldsworthy, a multi-instrumentalist whose passion for music and originality is heard throughout the music. Without specific intentions of what the band would "sound like," Goldsworthy assembled a team of collaborators that was not held back by industry constraints, or genre labels; the Pennsylvania-based quintet is defined by making music by their rules.

On the band’s upcoming debut EP, I, Snow Villain creates guitar-based melodic rock that spans genres from indie folk/pop to grungy, heavy rock. Snow Villain is an organic, collaborative effort; each member getting the opportunity to flourish. Snow Villain performs as Grant Goldsworthy (lead vocals/guitar); Alex Hilliard (bass); Anthony Pieruccini (guitar); and Cory Paternoster (drums).
