David Beeman

Watching Judas | It all started with a pair of rowdy homeschooled boys running around half-naked in Superman capes to Star Wars music. Those brothers are Eric and Christian Barfield, and this is the strange, yet true story of how Watching Judas began. Growing up with the works of T.S. Eliot, Hemingway and Poe, as well as an unhealthy number of Three Stooges and Looney Tunes episodes, Eric began to compose as an outlet at the tender age of seven, cowriting songs with his father and musical mentor. Christian soon followed, stretching his ever-changing voice to sing along.

STRIVE (Chicago) | STRIVE is the new breed of mainstream artist: relentless in its efforts to tour and promote itself, yet accessible enough that people of all ages and walks of life can latch on and claim the band as their own. "People like good music," maintains frontman, pianist and songwriter Derick Thompson. "If the lyrics touch you, it’s less important what sound is the backdrop for it."

Grace Basement | Grace Basement is a pure pop rock band led by DYI maestro Kevin Buckley. Studio musician, internationally reknown fiddler and home recording enthusiast, Buckley and his cohorts bring audiences melodious rock tunes filled with soaring choruses and irrestistable hooks.
