Anti-War Music: American High’s Album Debuts May 8th

Sharing in this mindset is the Sacramento-based American High, who released their debut album Bones in the Attic, Flowers in the Basement on March 8th, 2017. Read More

Los Angeles, California (Girl Underground) – Filipina singer/songwriter Merissa Fernandez compiled her demo of songs written over the last five years. The 5-track demo titled Off Mulholland was released on Saint Merissa’s Soundcloud page in December of 2016.
