The Summer Set is a pop-rock quintet from Scottsdale, Arizona, that has quickly become a phenomenon throughout the independent music scene. Formed by brothers John and Stephen Gomez as teenagers, the band released its first full-length, Love Like This in 2009, and the sophomore album Everything’s Fine in 2011. The band has honed its brand of rosy pop-punk through major television syncs on ABC's Dancing with the Stars, and MTV’s Jersey Shore, 10 on Top and The Hard Times of RJ Berger.
On its latest full-length on the Fearless Records label — Legendary — The Summer Set is issuing a simple yet essential call to fans: Be legendary. As a sonic challenge to aim high and never back down, the 12 tracks that make up Legendary aim to provide hope and inspiration, even if it’s just to forget your problems and have some fun for awhile.
Available online and in stores, the band's new album Legendary features the catchy single "Boomerang", which has been receiving spins on Top 40 radio stations nationwide. Cover stars of Substream Magazine’s April-May Issue, winners of the Macy’s iHeartRadio Rising Star competition, The Summer Set is on its way to the top with a summer of success in store.
The Millenium is a new Eau Claire band comprising Kyle Culver (guitar), Kyle Featherstone (guitar, piano, vocals), Matt Hasenmueller (vocals) and Sean Koran (bass). It’s So Much Friendlier With Two is the band's five-track debut album — "a collection of memories and instances".
