THE DIGITAL WILD
Austin, TX, trio The Digital Wild craft a deeply appealing genus of smokey dream pop, tinged with indie rock charm and power-soul bravado. Together Chantell Moody (vocals), Chelsea Seth Woodward (vocals/guitar), and James Blair (synth/guitar/electronic drums) weave together threads of the best of the last two decades of popular music to produce a rich tapestry of sound; both immediately engaging and profoundly nuanced.
Their debut record Into, produced by Alex Maas and Brett Orrison (Black Angels), was a bold declaration of intent, and quickly began climbing the charts at tastemaker radio station KUTX. Their reputation as a live band bloomed as well, and over the next year the band was featured at Fun Fun Fun Fest, X Games, and Sound Check, and at various Red Bull Sound Select showcase performances.
In 2015 the band won a grant through The Black Fret Organization to fund their sophomore release. They sought out multi-instrumentalist James Blair, and he proved a perfect fit. In the summer of 2016 the newly formed trio joined forces with producer David Butler at Matchbox Studios in South Austin, TX to record. Joining the band in the studio were Deano Cote (percussion) and beat programmers Jinx Mcgee and Michael Wisdom. The record was mixed by multi-platinum producer/engineer Brian Malouf and Butler.

by Escutcheon Brewing
Escutcheon Brewing Co. started with the friendship between two guys who both really like beer. John Hovermale and Art Major met while John was working to open a different brewery in Winchester. While that venture didn’t work out, their friendship did.
Together, pint after pint, the pair discussed how they would “do it the right way,” were they to launch a brewery of their own.
John, a master brewer, began at the Siebel Institute in Illinois more than fifteen years ago and has worked for breweries in Vermont, Maryland and Mississippi. Art is an accomplished entrepreneur who has founded other successful businesses. Although he doesn’t boast the same experience brewing, Art feels he has taken so much beer out of the system that the time has come to put some back in. The combination of their backgrounds and experiences, as well as their passions and drive to create good beer, were the perfect ingredients to build Escutcheon Brewing Co.
