This group consist of two young men taking the seeds of music and growing LIFE. The Jealous Guys, a duo made up of members of Casa and Ayinde are both natives of San Francisco, CA.
Biz y Casa and Ayinde met one another while attending preschool at the early age of three. Growing up in hostile and urban environments that included the prevalence of poverty, drugs, sports, the art of graffiti, and the craft of skateboarding as well as the temptation of dro and liquor. Which led them both to resort to raw lyrics and an untouched sound. The Jealous Guys are attempting to express their unique life experiences today through their music.
"The Jealous Guys" represent the unique style that defines these two talented urban artist, and the ability to change and adapt forcing people to respect and understand the true meaing jealously. Knowingly, few would not admit that jealously is a key factor in life. Their sound is anything but predictable and most certainly versatile. With press placement in The Fader, SF Weekly, Oakland Examiner, XXL Magazine, MTV UK, etc., The Jealous Guys are set to increase their fanbase tenfold this year with their latest release "Continuation School". www.TJG415.com

There is music you love, and then there is music that becomes a part of you— their story, words and melodies are yours and become intertwined with your being. You exist in their realm and their music nudges you, or shoves you rather, into their in-the-moment bliss...or sorrow. San Francisco-based band, Eyes on the Shore, takes listeners on their journey through wondrous soundscapes, explosive crescendos and heartbreaking vocals. The band, consisting of Kayhan Golkar on bass, Antrom Kury on lead guitar, Cory Tauber on lead vocals, guitar and percussion, and Kyle Albery on drums and vocals, transforms skintight songwriting into contemplative jams with hurricane-force, that fade out as gracefully as a sunset.

Yesway has been called "the hottest new supergroup in San Francisco". Supergroup isn't often a term used to describe duos, but in this case it works. Live, their voices literally melt together and their performances are intimate yet expansive. The budding project is a collaboration between best friends, Kacey Johansing and Emily Ritz.
