THE GAFFES
The Gaffes are a four-piece indie rock band formed in Chicago in 2017. Behind the songwriting of lead guitarist, Andy Byun, their music is reminiscent of the alternative sounds of the 90's, pulling inspiration from artists like Oasis and the Strokes. Led by the vocals of Clayton Eberly and backed by the rhythm of Ryan and Reese Durow, the Gaffes take a classic approach to rock music and put a modern twist on it to bring a refreshing experience to their audience.

MATT SUCICH
Matt Sucich writes songs mostly with a pen and sings them always with his mouth. His last name is pronounced Sue.Sitch.

“Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself” is the follow up to Matt’s 2019 LP, “Thousand Dollar Dinners” and although inarguably steeped in the events of the past year, is not what some might refer to as a “quarantine record.” Tracked over the summer of 2020 at The Creamery Studio in Brooklyn, NY, with co-producer and engineer, Jeff Fettig, and with overdubs from long-time collaborators, friends, and bandmates (including a special appearance from Adam Duritz of Counting Crows,) “Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself” finds Sucich’s lyrics front-and-center in a mostly hushed production. From the storytelling of the opening track “Make Peace,” to the vignettes of album closer, “New Normal,” Sucich tells personal stories in a universal light.

In addition to countless local NYC performances, Matt has appeared at Willie Nelson’s Heartbreaker Banquet in Luck, TX, Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE, Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, TN and Newport Folk Festival in Newport, RI. Matt has also shared the stage with The Lone Bellow, Lucius, Rachael Yamagata, Lake Street Dive, Levon Helm and many others.

It’s possible you’ve heard Matt Sucich on the radio on New York’s WFUV, Philadelphia’s WXPN, San Francisco’s KFOG, and Nashville’s Lightning 100. Or maybe Matt’s 2016 single “Montauk,” a favorite of the ever mysterious Spotify algorithm, came up on your weekly playlist…or maybe not. Either way you’re here now, so thanks. Reach out below, or follow along on whatever social sites you like. See you soon.

ZACH PORLIER
"Zach Porlier is a Chicago based songwriter and musician, most notably playing with the groups Valaska and Simon Ferocious. With Valaska, he has played shows and festivals in over 40 states, and is hoping to continue adding to the rest. He has released the EPs, "The Blankest Year," and "Swing and a Miss," along with the single, "York Minster," on all streaming platforms, with a sound influenced by 90's alternative, power pop, and brit pop music. He was once mistaken for a famous musician at a club in Toronto, and has been riding that high ever since."
