Pocket Vinyl is an aspiring piano-based rock band coming out of western New York. Centered around the unique piano slamming of Eric Stevenson, Pocket Vinyl has had a rotating cast of members over the years. Eric has been playing piano since he was a small child, curiously exploring the instrument from a young age. Starting in 2004, he found Pocket Vinyl and has spent hours upon hours in the studio with friends recording many hours worth of material. His craft has been fine tuned and continues to grow in fascinating directions. He’s been gathering influences from all over the place, taking hints from Ben Folds Five to Arcade Fire, Bright Eyes to Tom Waits. Whether Pocket Vinyl is a full band or a solo act, the stage is always filled with passionate yelps, miles of energy, and a man pressing his fingers down on a piano much harder than he probably should. Another very intriguing characteristic about Pocket Vinyl is their 2010 live show, which features a live on-stage artist, Elizabeth Jancewicz, creating a painting while the music is being played. The anticipated sophomore release “Protagonist” was released on June 15, 2010, and is sure to open the eyes of many to a fresh and unique sound in the musical landscape.

We’re just starting a new feature over here on The Audio Perv called Unsigned Spotlight where we’ll try to let you know about an up and coming band or artist who’s ready to explode or they just make some really cool music. Today, we focus on Scarlet Grey. Learn about Scarlet Grey below:

Pieced together from the states of California, New York and Washington, pop-rockers Scarlet Grey now collectively hail from Los Angeles. Members Benjamin Grey (lead vocals/guitar), Keith Cooper (drums/vocals/production), Pete Emperador (bass/vocals), and Cole Martin (lead guitar/vocals) released their debut album “Black” in US and Japan in 2008, but are now gearing up for the release of their newest product, “Fancy Blood.” Boasting the same signature classic songwriting, larger-than-life melodies and pop resonance as its predecessor, “Fancy Blood” embodies all that has made Scarlet Grey a southern California powerhouse, and an online global commodity. Not only does the new record feature guest appearances by AFI’s Davey Havok and production work by Jade Puget, but the four-piece have been supporting AFI on tour in preparation for the summer release of “Fancy Blood.” Having previously played with the likes of Saosin, Yellowcard, Rooney, After Midnight Project and others, Scarlet Grey are no strangers to the stage, and are poised to win over all who lend them an ear.

Pick up Fancy Blood on iTunes, Amazon MP3, or buy the CD at any Scarlet Grey show or at their merch store
