Hed PE, also known as (hed) Planet Earth and stylized as (həd) p.e., is an American band from Huntington Beach, California. Formed in 1994.
Stonewall BLVD
Stonewall BLVD
Stonewall BLVD is an alternative collective ranging from genre's such as Hip-Hop, Rock, Psycho Blues, and Punk.
Stemming from an idea shared between childhood friends Drummer Zilla Hawkins and Emcee/Bassist Avery J. whilst the latter was in the military. Stonewall BLVD became a full-fledged band in 2018 with the gain of Lyricist Dom Gordon, Lead Guitarist Shawn Lewis, and Rhythm Guitarist Alex Wheeler. The band stands with a philosophy of music being a community-oriented event. Creating an environment known as "The Block," these musicians that have different taste in musical genres use their diversity to create a sound that is distinct and inviting, yet in your face. The sound is unwavering, unrelenting, and unique. It's a block, it's a party, it's a vibe.

Depending upon what circles you travel in, rap metal gets a lot of flack. Often opined as un-melodic, unimaginative and angst ridden by the general public, Salt lake City’s Andrew W. Boss is here to change that view of the genre.
Weaned on a musical diet of Metallica/Korn/Tupac/Beastie Boys/Mudvayne and so many more, Boss began to enjoy bands and musicians that were different and special, willing to experiment out side of the normal sounds. Boss first got the musician bug when he went to his brothers concert in downtown Salt Lake City, he was 10 yrs old and tiny, and the band had him wear a shirt that said "Head of Security".

Andrew began recording in 2003, trading studio time for weed, and has completed half a dozen albums to date, both solo projects and projects with bands. “I started out, straight writing and recording hip hop, not really having a plan or any organization, then I was in a band with my brother flip for a while in Phoenix and really focused on the writing process and recording process, that's what really got me hooked”

For his latest release, Invincible, Boss has teamed up with uber producer Jim Fogarty (Killswitch Engage, All That Remains, Shadows Fall, etc) to deliver an album that transcends the rap metal tag. Equal parts rhymes, melodic and pure brutality, Invincible kicks off with the crushing “Avengers,” which leads straight into the first single, “Kleen.” “Kleen is definitely a fan favorite, and its personal to me because it depicts my troubles with getting sober.” The stage dive ready punch of the title track features Chelsea Grin drummer Pablo Viveros guesting with Boss on Drums, Bass and Guitars. “I met Pablo's wife through my 9 to 5 a while back and she found out I was a musician and showed my stuff to Pablo, we ended up hangin out and one day at his studio when I was writing Invincible, he's like, let's do a song together, I can make you something you can rap to, and I said no, I want you to make what you make and i'll do vocals on it, I want to blend the styles!” The demanding “Let Me Hear You” is a modern day anthem, opening with Boss chanting “Put your fucking hands up” repeatedly while the pop infused “Breaking Bridges” features Boss’ older brother Adam, singer of PoonHammer guesting with him on lead vocals.

Recorded between Salt Lake City and Phoenix Arizona where Boss's drummer Cory Michalski lives, a long with Studio musicians Jeremy Tabor and Sam Hughes that helped with the album, tracking and writing guitar riffs. All the tracks were recorded and sent to West Field MA for Jim to add his definite magic. Boss also recruited his brother Flip to record guitar and bass tracks in salt lake city, along with fellow guitarist Jonathan WIlson recording rough tracks at the beginning of the process… "I would have loved to have shipped the whole band to Jims studio for a month but it wasn't possible with our time line. But, I think it worked out better this way because I'm kinda anal, and sending a song to Cory in Phoenix or Jim in MA, let them work on it and finish it with out me breathin down their necks, and I think it let them blossom as an artist as well as it did me. It definitely shows in the way the album turned out."

The Medina Grooves
Every now and then, an artist attempts to combine styles that are traditionally classed as being polar opposite. That being said, the choice to merge such genres as heavy metal and reggae is generally frowned upon and prejudged, often referred to as sounding "unnatural" or "forced". Enter The Medina Grooves.....Created in 2011 and born into reality in 2014, The Medina Grooves project is the brainchild of Marcos Medina Rivera (guitar/vocals), current Skinlab guitarist and formerly of latin heavyweights Iratetion. The line-up also boasts Carlos Pagan (Motograter/Fracture) on guitar, Darren McClelland (Straight Line Stitch/Signals From Saturn) on bass, Gustavo Kolndorfer (Spallah) down in Brazil on lead guitar, Pedro Ghork Lopez (Iratetion/Cultura Sur) from Venezuela on latin tribal percussion and Ryan Ball (ex-Crisis) on drums. The hybrid style of music created by The Medina Grooves has previously been called "ViolentReggae" or "HeavyRasta", but we believe our sounds transcends all genres, from the beautiful to the extreme. We are based out of DENVER, CO and recently completed recording our debut EP "The Dreadlist" with renown producer Ahrue Luster (Ill Niño/ex-Machine Head) at Illustrious Studios, and is scheduled for a late-summer 2016 release. The Medina Grooves have yet to make our live debut, as we await the proper time to unleash our intense live show to the masses. That time is NOW!!
