Don Fredrick
Starting in the dorm rooms of Virginia Commonwealth University, Don Fredrick began as an offbeat southern rock band playing DIY gigs in living rooms, garages, basements and the like.
Released in February 2017, the debut self titled EP from Don Fredrick shows off their southern rock roots, with four tracks that have become anthems of the DIY venues they frequent.

Don Fredrick has greatly evolved since the release of Don Fredrick the EP, now playing the hottest venues in Richmond, such as Strange Matter, The Camel, Emilios, Sound of Music Studios, and more. Over the past two years the band has cultivated a sound from a combination of heavy influences from psych rock, funk, southern rock, and a little bit of just about everything else. Taking queues from great artists such as The War On Drugs, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and Kurt Vile & Courtney Barnett they cultivated a unique cross-genre mood to the jams they play.

Humbalaya vaults the genre barrier, blending sound and sensation into one tasty dish perfect for those hungry for home-cooked music. Diverse musical and cultural backgrounds combine in a melting pot of audible colors and visible sounds. As part of the VoidLife Records family, Humbalaya is at the heart of a strong community of creative, inspiring people who support each other in art and in life.

Consisting of four friends from the Washington D.C area, Bluewreck started out just like any other band would. By getting together in a hot basement and playing, revamping, and making some of their favorite songs sound even heavier. Soon afterward, they all felt a natural chemistry between the four of them, who had been playing in different bands since they met in high school, but never together. They soon began writing, and eventually recording their first EP, which would be released in March of 2018. Following this release, they played some of D.C’s best venues. Including Union Stage, Jammin Java, and Tally Ho Theatre in Leesburg. During this time, they continued writing for what would eventually become their first album, Out Of Control. Out Of Control was released on all streaming platforms in August of 2018. Following a headlining show at Rock And Roll Hotel and DC9, Bluewreck released a single, titled Coming Down in March of 2019. In March, they were added as direct support for People’s Blues Of Richmond, and just recently opened up for King Buffalo, Jessy Wilson, and Paris_Monster. Above all else, Bluewreck aims to provide a good time at their live shows. They hope to provide some freaky voodoo, and make some sonic witchcraft along the way.
