Magic City Hippies began as a one-man band playing for the co-ed party scene on the streets of Miami — serenading the 20-somethings with a mix of old- school hip-hop covers and breezy pop originals.
After months of stealing electricity and stirring up crowds of passers-by with his loop-based setup, Robby Hunter was given an ultimatum by the local police: to cease and desist from street performance or to get a gig at a “real bar.” Finding sanctuary in the neighborhood dive, Hunter enlisted the support of multi-instrumentalists Pat Howard (drums) and John Coughlin (guitar) for a regular Friday night gig (that paid, of course, in free beer).
The trio dubbed themselves Robby Hunter Band and released a self-produced, widely acclaimed debut LP in 2013 entitled Magic City Hippies, which included the beachy Hype Machine-topper “Corazón” alongside indie blog hits ”Hard On Me” and “BUST.”
Started in Los Angeles, CA in 2015, The Palms have become a formidable player in today’s Independent musical landscape. With their signature California sound, an underground modern-day classic in “Push Off,” and an ever growing and beloved fan base and catalogue, they’ve generated 100’s of millions of streams, all while retaining 100% ownership, independence and remaining loyal to their DIY ethos.
Josh Fudge fashions a kaleidoscopic take on pop by conjuring modern vibrancy through analog proficiency. The 19-year-old Oklahoma City-born singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer paints from a broad palette of alternative, indie, and pop, envisioning a world of his own in the process. He took to the piano at the age of four, spending hours on the instrument daily. At nine-years-old, he noticed a flier in a local arts district. The words, “Street Performers Welcome,” beckoned him. Much to his mother’s chagrin, her middle schooler set up shop with a tiny keyboard and amp and busked, taking home $200 in cash. Drawing inspiration from everyone from Billy Joel to Mac DeMarco, he bought a guitar, a bass, a drum set, and amassed an arsenal of analog synths. After amassing 10 million-plus streams independently and receiving support from Spotify’s New Music Friday, Glide Magazine, and more, he invites everyone into this space on a series of singles and more music to come.
