Christopher Dallman  

CHRISTOPHER DALLMAN

After 1 album and 3 EPs with a folky vibe, Christopher Dallman ditches the acoustic guitar and sad-sack singer/songwriter sound on his transcendent new album DIGITAL BLUE.  With 13 distinct yet unified tracks, Dallman explores a bold and genre-bending soundscape that draws from Pop, Electronic, Alternative, and even Jazz, taking the listener on an evocative, cinematic journey. 

DIGITAL BLUE will be released to streaming one track at a time over the course of a year with a new song dropping on the first Friday of every month beginning May 2 2020 with the single NO SENSE IN REGRET featuring guest vocals by Julliard student and rising star Chantae Miller.  Previews of future tracks are available ahead of release upon request. DIGITAL BLUE will also be released on Limited Edition 12” Vinyl that ships in December and gives buyers 7 songs ahead of their digital release. 

A&R FACTORY says this about the single: “The haunting soundscape fuses elements of darkwave synth-pop with contemporary yet cinematic Indie, making No Sense in Regret as authentic as it is evocative. Debut singles don’t get much more promising than this.” 

Born and raised in Milwaukee, Dallman moved to New York City at 18, where he honed his chops at local open mics before signing with Treasure Records for his debut album RACE THE LIGHT. In 2004, Dallman relocated to Los Angeles, where he recorded 3 EPs, including SAD BRITNEY, a record of Britney Spears covers that reached #7 on the iTunes singer-songwriter charts. His video for GHOSTS reached #1 on MTVmusic.com. He has licensed his music to MTV’s The Real World, Hallmark, Lifetime, and various independent films. Dallman has toured the US and overseas, sharing the stage with the likes of Amos Lee, Jonathan Rice, Ben Lee, and Amy Helms.

WILL THOMPSON  

WILL THOMPSON

As a fifth generation musician who grew up surrounded by walls of instruments and family members to teach him how to play them, it would seem to be a given that Will Thompson would play music for the rest of his life. And while that has proven to be the case, every path has it’s unexpected turns. 

At 18 years old, Will sold everything he owned and took out a loan to buy recording equipment to fully realize the music he had been writing on his guitar. Locking himself away for months at a time he honed his skills as a producer, songwriter, singer. By the time Will got everything he wanted in the form of a record contract from his all time musical idol, he walked away from it all feeling like he wasn’t making the music he wanted to. 

After being haunted by the love he tried to leave behind, he knew it was time to return to his lifelong family calling in writing and recording songs. Will Thompson is recording/producing/writing and currently working on a new music, a mix of rock-country-funk sound that showcases stadium-ready songwriting and soulful production at every turn. As for Will there’s no looking back as he prepares to play shows and write for himself and other artists. He carries his family tradition forward and puts what’s in his blood into every song.

Jared Mancuso  

JARED MANCUSO

Jared Mancuso is a Philly based artist and purveyor of the next wave of alternative rock. Originally from Bucks County, PA, Mancuso developed musical prowess on multiple instruments and honed his songwriting skills in college, where he met his first creative partner Jared Bardugone. Together the two formed Strike of The Heart and later The Jared Project, which released and nationally toured 2 full length albums that blended the pop punk and folk stylings of the latter Jared with the bluesy riff-rock inspirations of the former. 

Jared Mancuso’s solo ventures began in 2013 with his first album, A Very Pleasant Person.  Over the years he has circled in on his true sound: a mix of gritty blues and garage rock drawing from such inspiration as Weezer, The Black Keys, Jack White, and the Beach Boys.  His sophomore effort Superdope, entirely played and recorded by Mancuso himself, was released in 2016 to great acclaim, and garnered him an invite to the Launch Music Conference in Lancaster, PA 2 years in a row. 

Reviews for Superdope: 

“A damn near perfect album, top to bottom!” 

- JAMSPHERE MAGAZINE 

“If this don’t make you love Rock ‘n Roll again something is seriously wrong with you!” 

- MIDDLE TENNESSEE MUSIC 

“The melting pot of sounds has set the standard for the fun that rock ‘n roll can be again.” 

- INDIE BAND GURU 

Mancuso’s 3rd album, Hype!, is due out late summer 2018 and has already been receiving ovations and praise in performances with this live band, the Very Pleasant People, across the Eastern Seaboard. Jared Mancuso’s signature slicked back pompadour and perfectly tailored suits evoke a Don Draper meets James Dean vibe and, when juxtaposed with soaring choruses, infectiously intricate guitar riffs, and thought provoking lyrics, manages to build a sexy sonic tension that packs a punch both live and on the record.

NOMAD CHAD  

NOMAD CHAD

Los Angeles, CA - Rising hip-hop musician, artist and Chicago native Nomad Chad releases his debut album the Skinny Hendrix Experience on August 31 through Monolog Records. The album follows the two recent online successes of singles Gucci and For Life (feat. TOMMY), yielding a collective quarter-million views within the first few weeks. The album is written by Nomad Chad and produced by Monolog Records founder, Dr. Jones. 

The first single “Gucci” was released in the spring of 2018 followed by second single “For Life” in June. “Both tracks have already gained attention of his peers at bigger labels,” notes Monolog Recordsfounder, Dr. Jones, “so we are already looking toward collaborations during the promotion of the LP.”  

Nomad Chad’s “For Life” single is a very personal catharsis inspired by a time in his life when in cinematic fashion, a new love saved him from the impending incarceration or death- ultimately inspiring everything he is today. The overall themes of the album are very much in the same vein to the single “For Life” as it takes the listener on a journey of being one’s best self while maintaining integrity. The title, “Skinny Hendrix Experience” is a reference to Nomad Chad’s eclectic personal style and how the album aspires to be an en-masse artistic piece meaning to be consumed as a single-work versus the disparate single-to-single trend currently pervading hip-hop top 40. 

Nomad Chad’s musical background includes singing in choir as a child to then learning how to play guitar and piano and eventually discovering his talent for rapping. The Chicago West-Side native honed his craft for more than a decade before being discovered by Monolog Records.
