James Barrett Music

Clarks Summit, Pa.

Sounds like: Acoustic alternative rock — stripped down, sincere, and exposed allowing you to see that someone else has been there too.

Fun fact: People think that James’ is in his 20’s, but he’s only 17. He also convinced his English Teacher to call him Jimmy Wild Boy B.

Belmar, N.J.

Sounds like: Raw and honest alternative rock creating anthems for the lonely 20-something year olds that are just trying to figure it out.

Fun fact: The band mascot is a shape shifting dog named wuce. Monterey’s singer Carter has never been to McDonald’s.

The Winter Passing

Roscrea in Tipperary, Ireland

Sounds like: Indie punk that forces you to face the overwhelming realization that thing’s aren’t as bad as you think.

Fun fact: The name ‘The Winter Passing’ is taken from a movie of the same name starring Zoey Deschanel and Will Ferrell.
