The Creeps:

The Creeps are a 4-piece hard-rock band that brings a raw, power-driven sound to the stage. The Houston based group began performing in the fall of 2020 and have not slowed down since. They’ve performed at popular city venues including White Oak Music Hall and The Houston Rodeo. Drawing inspirations from Grunge, Rock, and Heavy Metal, they blend these influences to create an energetic thunderous sound throughout their music and performances. 



Blossom Aloe

Blossom Aloe is an indie rock quintet from Houston, TX. The band incorporates elements of bedroom-pop, psychedelia, and alternative rock into their sound, with no two songs sounding alike. Summer Days Heavy Rain is the band’s latest album featuring tracks Getaway and You’re Telling Me. Now, Blossom Aloe continues to write/record new music and play shows across Texas.



Sugar Joiko

Sugar Joiko is a contemporary pop singer with a harmonious edge of soul meets synth wave. A girl gamer with an addiction to Japanese culture, this New Orleans native is a deft song maker whose global influence for composition and songwriting make her a unique and fresh addition in today’s realm of pop music.
