Jonathan Cour | The son of a music teacher, Jonathan’s first musical endeavors were in high school as a drummer for various local bands. In college, Jonathan stepped out from behind the drums, picked up a guitar, and started writing his own songs. Based on the buzz created by his early demos, Jonathan soon found himself traveling across the country to Los Angeles, Nashville and Tulsa to write and record with some of the music industry’s hottest producers and most decorated songwriters. His debut EP, A Motion Picture Scene, is the impressive first result of his travels and efforts, as well as a testament to Jonathan’s natural strengths as a songwriter, singer, musician and producer. In addition to writing or co-writing five of the six songs on the EP, Jonathan sings all the lead and background vocals himself and plays almost all of the multi-layered guitars and other instrumentation.

Dear Future | Hello, my name is Brandon. I sing and play guitar for this band from Southern Illinois called Dear Future. The band was started several years ago with a guitar and an old beat-up drum kit. Then we grew older. An independent album was released under a different name, along with a demo or two. We grew older again. Several changes and years later, here we are. Ethan on drums, Wes playing the lead guitar, and Ian playing bass.

Splendor in Arms | We are Splendor in Arms from St. Louis. We’ve been a band for a short time now and we love music. We believe that there is more to life than what is given to us through this world. So many times we fall short in everything we try to do or accomplish when we do it on our own. We’ve gone through many of these times and we’d like to share with you what we have found out, hoping that you will listen to our experiences and be able to relate with us and help us make a change in this world. Join the revolution now! Thanks for everything that you do.
