Dozens are Chicago natives Kyle Mann, Vincent Theodore and John Norman. Incorporating synthpop, post-rock and EDM elements into an ambient aesthetic, Dozens marries infectious melody with a dreamy melancholy. As a trio of of multi-instrumentalists, producers and DJs, Dozens delivers a deliberate production on tracks that run the gamut from radio ready synth-tinged singalongs to spacious soundscapes.

Featuring a wide spectrum of dynamics and a tonal palette that draws from disparate musical worlds, Dozens’ varied catalogue receives a sculptor’s treatment on record. Rife with lush wall of sound atmospheres and extended instrumental passages showcasing intricate synth, string and brass arrangements, Dozens self-released collection has drawn critical comparison to a range of artists such as MGMT, Kings of Convenience and Hall & Oates.

Dreamy, folk inspired music from the cold shores of Lake Erie, Lost Jon and the Ghosts are an ever expanding and evolving collection of musicians centered around songwriter Jon Meador and core members Max Stern and David Rivera. Like many groups currently growing in Cleveland, Lost Jon & The Ghosts met through playing music in previous projects together. Jon Meador had been writing songs for a yet to be named solo project for months when he went to and old friend, Max Stern, to try out a couple new things. He played “The question” for him.
