About Colette Carr

Ask Colette Carr to describe herself and she’ll respond with a series of descriptive words: Expressive, optimistic, artful, accepting, free, surprising, honest, bold, quirky. The Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter’s upcoming single, “Play House,” shows all of these sides, revealing: “I am the girl that lives in her Pokemon pajamas, orders food in, works late and is scared of the concept of growing a human inside of me. When I wrote “Play House” it was about a boy that made me want to dress super-girly, cook for him, and have tiny human babies with him! That was something I’d never felt before. So I decided to write a song about it.”

Colette’s last EP, Static. Start., represented a radical reboot from her previous releases, showing a more vulnerable, emotionally and naked honesty that touched on frustrating relationships (“Moments in Love,” “Walking in Place”) before hitting bottom with a Tequila-fueled, self-loathing hangover (“3%”). She described its evolving sound as “an alternative pop, dance-floor feel.” Her new EP, slated for release in spring 2016, conveys these same themes and emotions, representing her growth as both a woman and artist.

A childhood tennis star whose back problems led to an interest in music, drawing and painting, Colette started listening to The Cure and The Smiths before discovering classic rock like Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix, with favorites including Gwen Stefani, Talking Heads, and Deborah Harry before gravitating to rappers like Eminem, Wu-Tang Clan, and Snoop Dogg. Inspired to start rapping herself, a teenage Carr was urged by her sister during a concert at UCLA featuring The Game, to jump on-stage and freestyle herself. It was then that she knew music was her path in life.

What followed that fateful night was a self-released video, “Back It Up,” which went to #1 at mtvU, attracting the attention of Nick Cannon, who helped Colette release her debut mixtape, “Sex Sells Stay Tooned,” through his label. That attracted the attention of then-Interscope boss Jimmy Iovine, who signed her to a recording contract. Colette went straight into the recording studio to complete her debut album, The Skitszo Collection, which produced the Billboard Dance hit, “Never Gonna Happen” and the Billboard Uncharted topper, “(We Do It) Primo,” working with producers such as RedOne (Lady Gaga). Deciding to forge her own path, Carr took what she learned at the label and began to record music on her own. “Ham,” featuring Ben J, was played on more than 30 stations nationwide and went Top 10 on Shazam in San Francisco, Portland and St. Louis.

Working with longtime friend, producer/writer FrankMusik, Carr decided to confront all those insecurities and vulnerabilities that come with a music career and the spotlight at a young age and put those emotions into her songs. 

“I’m singing about things I wouldn’t even talk about,” says the reticent Carr, who otherwise connects with her fans on all the requisite social media. “I vowed to grow a pair this time… take chances, reveal my soul, tell stories about my shitty relationships by tapping into areas that might cause pain.” Collaborating with producer FrankMusik helped provide the canvas. “We have something very special together,” she says. “Frank has this militant approach that squeezes the best out of me. This direction seemed more difficult, but it also represents the most possibilities of growth.”

Having already road-tested some of the new material while playing on iHeartRadio’s recent “On the Rise” tour, Carr is currently putting the finishing touches on her new EP and rehearsing the songs with a full band, ready to bring the new music to her fans, making them aware they are the motivation behind her every creative move, offering counsel and advice from her own experiences.

More than just her music and art, Colette’s life is dedicated to “helping and inspiring people to be comfortable and confident with who they are. I’m not afraid to let everyone see my flaws, hoping my music inspires them. Doing this all myself, I realized how much I took for granted. I appreciate the struggle. I wouldn’t want it any other way. If I had succeeded too quickly, it wouldn’t have the same value. I’m hungrier and happier than ever because I’m making stuff I’m proud to hang on the wall.

“This path I’m on will not be traveled alone… That momentum will be gained from everyone involved, including my family and fans. We make it go.”

“Play House” will be available on iTunes and other online stores, January 29.

This Wednesday, January 13th on SuicideGirls Radio, hosts Moxi and Bradley Suicide will be joined by atmospheric rockers State To State, who’ll be talking about their forthcoming EP entitled “Motives” — out Feb 5th!

About State To State

State to State is a band ready to leave their mark. Since releasing their first LP No Bounds in 2014, they have established themselves as flag bearers of atmospheric rock, while looking to create a new path for themselves in a landscape forged by bands like Muse, Radiohead, and Interpol. Their new EP “Motives” might be just that: the collection of songs to separate them from their peers and reaffirm the power of progressive guitar driven rock.

“Motives” is five tracks of soaring, inspired alternative rock that was produced and recorded by Grammy Award nominee Ian MacGregor (Katy Perry, Twenty One Pilots, All American Rejects, Ariana Grande) at Greg Wells’ Rocket Carousel Studio in Culver City, CA. Guitarist Andrew Orvis talked about the recording process: “Creating this new record has been quite a journey for us. Thankfully, working with Ian MacGregor has been like having a fifth member of the band and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Recording at Rocket Carousel gave us the opportunity to experiment with all kinds of gear, which really helped expand our tonal options for each song.”

Since forming in 2010 the band have slowly been building the groundwork for success in Los Angeles with residencies at notable venues like The Viper Room and Hotel Cafe. They have also performed at The Pancakes and Booze pop-up art show and the Eat See Hear & Street Food Cinema. With “Motives” State to State are ready to make waves within the Los Angeles alt scene, and with tour dates in the works for early 2016, they have their eyes set on the rest of the country. State to State is Shea Stratton (vocals / guitar), Andrew Orvis (guitar), Feudor Lokshin (drums), and Patrick Morgan (bass).

About Strangers You Know

We all start out as strangers before we meet and that’s exactly how the band formed. Grady Lee snuck into Coachella — kids, we do not condone this sort of behavior, even if it gets you into a sold out music festival where you meet your future bandmate and embark on a musical journey that brings you two EPs and a full-length recording that showcases your ability to meld together sounds that surpass genres! Anyway, Adam Haagen was at said music festival with some friends who just happened to be pretty girls and Grady wandered over. If it weren’t for the stealth behavior on Grady’s part — and the pretty girls — he and Adam may never have met. They went their separate ways after this chance encounter, only to find themselves at the right time and the right place four months later. This allowed Grady and Adam to go from strangers to musical brothers in arms.

They formed a connection over synths, beats, guitars, lyrics and melody, leading to their first EP, “Something to Someone.” Released in 2014, the title is a remark on sentimentality and a snapshot of where they were as artists at the time. Everything means something to someone, and when these songs where recorded they represented feelings and emotions that were present at that moment.

“Right now, we’re just synthesizing our favorite things,” says Adam referring to the evolution of Strangers You Know’s sound. What followed “Something to Someone” was 2015’s What Happened. Listening to this full-length album, you get a sense of where the music is going and how layered it is. What Happened is theatrical. There’s never a dull moment in the sound. Everything comes together with no gaps. It’s rich and eclectic. It’s a collaboration of two musical minds one from Santa Barbara (Grady) and the other from West LA (Adam). But the music isn’t about California; it’s about amalgamating their influences that range from folk to rock to pop to electronica. Strangers You Know’s sound represents everything that they’re feeling in the moment.

With their new EP, Grady and Adam continue to evolve. With every release, a new sound emerges. It’s a new version of the band — with the same members of course — that follows the trajectory of their music. In the studio Adam and Grady work in tandem. Sure there are disputes about where a certain melody may go or if a lyric is right for a particular song but in the end, everything comes together perfectly.

In an industry where image is key and rehashing the same sounds over and over again is the only way get ahead, Strangers You Know take a different approach. “It’s not this giant group of pop ideology of other people telling us what we need to be,” Grady says of their dynamic. Strangers You Know do everything themselves from the songwriting to the recording. It’s their music and no matter how much it grows and shifts it will always belong to them. But more importantly, it belongs to the listener.

With Strangers You Know the one constant you can count on is that their music will endlessly evolve into something for not just someone but for everyone.

About The Dread Crew of Oddwood

The Dread Crew of Oddwood is a folk metal band known for its pirate-themed music played exclusively on acoustic instruments. They have dubbed this unique style as Heavy Mahogany.

Over the past 6 years The Dread Crew of Oddwood has independently booked 8 national tours, performing at over 70 venues throughout the U.S. and Canada. In early 2015, they supported Alestorm and Swashbuckle on their quest for hooks and booty on Piratefest North America. This crew of bearded brigands packs bars and concert halls with rabid fans that flock to experience a headbanging, jig-dancing, pirate-filled adventure. Locally, they’ve directly supported the bands Turisas, Firewind, Rhapsody of Fire, Arkona, Heidevolk, Stolen Babies, Buckethead, and Steam Powered Giraffe.

By infusing the raw energy of heavy metal with Celtic folk music, The Dread Crew of Oddwood’s Heavy Mahogany style has carved a distinct and popular niche in the heavy metal community. They riff and shred on the accordion, mandolin, bouzouki, tin whistle, toy piano, acoustic guitar, upright bass, and “Oddkit”, while weaving grandiose tales of comrades lost, bloody sieges, drunken debauchery, zombies, airships, and time travel! The Dread Crew of Oddwood recently finished recording their latest acoustic monstrosity ‘Lawful Evil’ which was successfully crowdfunded on Kickstarter and is set for release in March 2016.
