Polyphia
Blending technical, weaving instrumentations with hip-hop, jazz and R&B influenced grooves, Dallas, TX-based instrumental outfit Polyphia has created a massively impressive sound that is all their own.

Polyphia re-released their debut full-length, Muse, on Equal Vision Records on April 21st, 2015. The album was originally self-released as an independent artist and is now available as a re-mastered, re-packaged release through the label. Upon its initial release, the full-length debut landed on several Billboard Charts including: No. 5 on Internet Albums, No. 6 on Hard Rock Albums, No. 13 on Independent Albums, No. 22 on Top Rock Albums, No. 71 on Top Current Albums, and No. 76 on Top 200.

The band released their highly anticipated sophomore full-length Renaissance, on March 11 and has sold over 11k copies to date, 2016. The album was recorded with Nick Sampson (Asking Alexandria, Of Mice & Men) who co-produced it with Polyphia guitarists Tim Henson and Scott LePage. Renaissance introduced a new conceptual and artistic direction for the trio's sound, vibe and visual aesthetic, that sees the band embracing their eclectic musical tastes (which include EDM, hip hop, pop and classical music) to create their own innovative blend of technical, yet melodic instrumental arrangements.

Polyphia is also currently writing for a new EP that they will release in 2017, which will take on a very different direction from all previous releases, with guitarists Tim Henson and Scott LePage taking creative lead on the project as both artists and producers.
Jason Richardson
Jason Richardson
At 24, technical metal guitarist Jason Richardson is already a well-seasoned veteran with a résumé that includes stints in All Shall Perish, Born of Osiris, and Chelsea Grin. This crowd-funded effort reveals Richardson's considerable abilities as a composer, arranger, and orchestrator in complex, musically astute, and emotionally charged tunes equally accessible to hardcore guitar heads, more generalized metal fans, and others. His compositions seamlessly merge metal subgenres that include black metal, symphonic, deathcore, djent, and metalcore. His guests include drummer Luke Holland, bassist Danny Hauser, guitarists Rick Graham, Jeff Loomis, and Mark Holcomb, and singers Lukas Magyar and Spencer Sotelo., Rovi
Covet
Covet
Covet is the adventure rock trio that accompanies complex, mathematical guitar tunes penned by instrumental phenom Yvette Young. Young began playing and performing early in life, learning piano at age four and picking up violin by age seven. She fused the techniques of both instruments into a specialized form of guitar mastery. It's a fast paced, intricate, two-handed playing style that mimics the momentum of classical music. Apart from music, Young is heavily invested in pen drawing and painting, and finds inspiration in the interconnectedness of the natural world. Young loves the ocean and uses the tide's push and pull as a muse for her spectacular guitar composition.
