Former Belle
Former Belle
Since its start in the winter of 2010, Former Belle has taken on many different outfits, all led by frontman, Bruno Catrambone. The project self-released a full band EP entitled Sounds From The Ground. Former Belle backed their first release with multiple regional tours as well as a five-week European tour. This helped to shape the project into its new-found home of both full band and solo performances. After a year-long break while Catrambone pursued his other project, CRUISR, Bruno’s downtime between tours, as well as writing on the road, led him to collect new songs mixed with revisited old material to form a new EP out on April 8th on Randm Records.
Hemming
Hemming
HEMMING (Candice Martello) is an acoustic singer-songwriter hailing from Philadelphia, PA. Her high-voltage vocals and folk-influenced songs have stood out from the crowd as a performer in the thriving Philadelphia music scene, having played the stage at well-known venues throughout the city. With a family deep rooted in music, It's no wonder she has befriended every instrument she meets. Playing guitar at just 9 years old, and writing her first song at 13, her fascination with music took off very young.

After graduating from Drexel University, Hemming continued developing her sound and influence as a solo performer to the backdrop of the artist community in West Philadelphia, and as a member of Omar, the two-piece punk band she formed with close friend Nick Fanelli. While a part of Make or Break: The Linda Perry Project, she was praised for her talent as a solo artist, and split from Omar to further develop her own sound.

With musical influences including Cat Power, Metric, M. Ward, and Alanis Morisette; she is inspired by the power of raw emotion, experience, and simplicity. Hemming's rhythmic, folksy, room-splitting croon leaves produces a haunting experience for her audience. And with the honesty of her music, as she bares down to a song's meat and bones, it is undeniably clear that tugging her audience's heart strings is what she aims for.
Howlish
Howlish

Their next album, 0uter reintroduces the band as they venture into spacey, experimental, and dark sonic territories. 0uter will be available 11.17.15.
