Bel Heir
Bel Heir is an indie rock band from Philadelphia PA. In 2014 they held
themselves to an ambitious campaign of releasing 2 singles a month for
a full year, resulting in two 12 song LPs. As a result, they gained
the attention of many indie rock blogs including Neon Gold, Indie
Shuffle, Hilly Dilly and more. The campaign led to a major label deal
with RCA records in 2015. Bel Heir, spent much of 2016 touring and in
LA writing and recording what would be their debut LP for RCA records.
In early 2017 while waiting for a release date from RCA, Bel Heir
wrote and recorded an EP, “What is Beach Punk.” The EP is scheduled
for release in late Spring. You can preview a song from the EP here:

Vincent John
Vincent John is known for his work behind the scenes with such artists as Lee Fields, Nicole "Lady" Wray, Aaradhna, El Michels Affair, Nicole Atkins, Texas & more as a songwriter and session musician. He is now actively pursuing his own career as an artist, starting with the release of his debut Never Go Back last fall 2016.
"Vincent John has brought his experience as guitarist for Lee Fields & the Expressions to his solo record, infusing the proceedings with soulful, seductive R&B as well as an authentically retro dance feel. There is a funky desperation and honesty to John’s vocals on “Double Roulette” that is reminiscent of some of the dreamiest of 80’s power pop ballads, in particular those of another renowned guitarist and vocalist: the Purple One himself, Prince.” -Justin Hernandez, Impose Magazine

"As guitarist for Lee Fields & the Expressions, John knows a thing or two about soul music. But on "Heaven Knows," he finds his own voice in some of the 1980s most timeless pop and new wave artists with a modern electro pop twist, delivered with a soulful sense of honesty." -Colin Stutz, Billboard.com

Analogue synthesizers and drum machines are the new ingredients of this fresh new sound. Vincent John finds this is the purest way he can experiment freely with genuine self-expression. Lyrics of longing, loss and drug dependency juxtapose sonically sweet arrangements and driving beats. Vincent John has seen success in releasing his debut, Electro Pop EP Never Go Back. He is currently in the studio, writing, for his debut full length due out 2018.
