Color Palette, led by principal songwriter/vocalist Jay Nemeyer, is an indie dream pop band from Washington, DC. Color Palette creates lush auditory landscapes that feature shimmering, pop-sensible vocal and guitar melodies, and the band has shared the stage with world-renowned acts such as Charli XCX. “Color Palette takes experiences like heartbreak and love, and together turns them into something mystical and inviting.” – DC Music Download.

Color Palette’s music has garnered placements with ESPN, MTV, Vimeo, Volvo, Aeropostale, and Monster Energy. In July 2020, they received a Wammie Award (Washington Area Music Award) for Best Pop Song (“Marrakech to Bombay”).

We Were Pirates is the musical brainchild of Mike Boggs, a multi-instrumentalist who writes and records songs in the DC area.

Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune rock critic & co-host of Sound Opinions, described one song on Boggs’ 2009 debut album as, “Pure pop…This should be the next Fountains of Wayne single; genius.”

Wired magazine featured We Were Pirates after the release of the second album, Change. It said, “You heard this band’s public radio-friendly pop on This American Life…So don’t miss ‘Better Off Without You’ from the new album. Catchy synths will have your crew dancing a jig.”

In 2013, Boggs wrote & recorded an original film score for the Calvin & Hobbes documentary, ‘Dear Mr. Watterson.’ This American Life featured We Were Pirates again, when they played ‘A Strange Experience’ from the film score. We Were Pirates performed songs from ‘Dear Mr. Watterson’ live at screenings of the film.

On 2016’s Matter, Boggs explores a mellow, electronic aesthetic. Following the release, NPR’s Morning Edition interviewed We Were Pirates. The band also played a string of live shows, including one at The Kennedy Center in DC.

We Were Pirates is starting out 2019 by releasing a new EP that finds Boggs returning to a more organic sound. Gone features five new songs about the pursuit of love, pain, & peace of mind. TW Walsh (Pedro the Lion) mastered the album.

We Were Pirates live shows feature Kate Rears Burgman on bass, Pat Frank on drums, & Scott Greenberg playing guitar.

Little Lungs is a four-piece band based out of Baltimore, MD. Fronted by singer/guitarist Leena Rhodes, Little Lungs combines pop melodies, grungey guitars, and earnest lyrics to create soulful, infectious indie rock. Backed by Ethan Salem on guitar, Jordan Mercer on bass, and Erik Schwarzenberg on drums/production, Little Lungs released their self-titled EP in Spring 2017 and a 4-song EP, Get Your Kicks and Go in January 2019. Their new EP Better In Blue is out now.
