Walden-Four friends from Athens, Georgia have started a revolution in rock music. Driven by passion and purpose, the band Walden seeks only one thing: to evoke emotion and inspiration through their music and live performance. To do so, these young men have stripped away every stigma and stereotype associated with playing in a rock band to focus on what actually matters: the music, the message, and the people. Four guys, with nothing but a passion for playing shows and creating music, quickly became one of the biggest upcoming musical acts in Georgia, capturing the attention of audiences of all ages with their raw sound, heartfelt messages, and the infectious energy and undeniable connection they share on stage.
Over the past four years of playing shows, Walden has gained a passionate and supportive following in their hometown of Athens, GA. They also have had the pleasure to open for well known bands such as Moon Taxi and Twiddle. However, every ounce of success amounts to nothing more than a stepping stone towards the band achieving their actual goal. With their sights aimed higher than ever, Walden remains determined to grow into a nationally recognized name.
Unbreakable Bloodline- Two-time Georgia Music Award Winners, Unbreakable Bloodline, are rising above the noise with their sophomore release, Anti Gravity, which is a refreshing blend of hip hip & rock with a hint of blues & a splash of island flare. From the fun, radio friendly hooks of Mid Dayz Drift to the more serious lyrical content of Dead End, Unbreakable Bloodline proves to be on the cutting edge of today’s audible marketplace. This particular collection of songs, ranging from ambient to bone crushing, is guaranteed to cross over to a wide variety of music lovers, while defying the traditional boundaries of its predecessors.
The recognizable intensity of Unbreakable Bloodline’s live stage show recently landed the band three performance slots in this year’s South By Southwest (SXSW) music & film conference in Austin, Texas, which was attended by the likes of celebrities & industry leaders as well as our United States President, Barack Obama. This exposure spawned a networking journey that awarded the band recognition from Atlanta’s primary entertainment publication, The Creative Loafing, which furthermore led to radio airplay on Atlanta’s premier alternative rock radio 105.7, whereas UBL succeedingly won the station’s Talent Tap contest based on listener call in votes for the single, Mid Dayz Drift.
