Schiermann
Schiermann
Guitarist Chris Schiermann's solo project SCHIERMANN and self-titled debut album was released Dec. 8. The debut is a journey of adventurous and infectious melodies and intelligent grooves topped off with a large dose of virtuoso lead work inspired by many players across the decades making this not only a celebration of his work, but the progressive /tech metal scene as a whole with many special guest appearances from the top players in the genre on the album.

The album features special guest appearances by musicians - Matt Gartska (Animals As Leaders), Adrian Terrazas-Gonzales (Mars Volta), Acle Kahney and Amos Williams (TesseracT), Navene Koperweis (Entheos), Mike Malyan and Jakub Zytecki (DispursE), Chris Maresh (Eric Johnson), Ashe O’Hare (Voices from the Fuselage), and his son Zach Schiermann.
Heelcatcher
Heelcatcher
Formed in late 2016, Heelcatcher began as the solo project of Sawyer Martin, under the moniker of Ib-Sagu. The idea was to create a music collective, drawing on players from different backgrounds and schools of thought so that the "genre" of the songs was truly ambiguous. After several lineup and name changes, the group finally settled on the current 3-piece roster of Martin, Kevin Sullivan, and Jacob Wilson.

Because many of the original recordings featured more than three parts, the pieces have been re-adapted to fit the trio format, with a twist:

All 3 members switch between instruments, and at times, even play 2 at once (while singing).

This gave the group the ability to bring a fresh new take to each song, and create a blended sound that tied seemingly unrelated styles into a cohesive new "progressive music" genre, separate from progressive rock (though we do also like to rock).

At live shows, you will see all three hopping from spot to spot, often accompanied by strange ethereal sounds and (eventually) some killer visual effects, and because each show will feature a different set order, you will actually hear new pieces every time you come out.

We invite you to join us on a new musical journey as we look to challenge and inspire every level of music lover, and redefine what it means to be a modern rock band.
