The Unlikely Candidates


Based out of Fort Worth, Texas, The Unlikely Candidates are an indie rock band initially formed as an acoustic duo by childhood friends Kyle Morris and Cole Male in 2008. Eventually expanding the lineup to include guitarist Brenton Carney, bassist Jared Hornbeek, and drummer Kevin Goddard, the band was also able to expand its sound in bigger, more sweeping directions. In 2013, the band signed on with major-label Atlantic and released their debut EP, Follow My Feet. In early 2016, the Unlikely Candidates returned with a hooky new single in “Your Love Could Start a War,” which made a strong showing on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart.


Mad Passenger


Through the eyes of a time traveler, our present world may seem like a confused illusion- and while we could try our best with words and phrases to explain how we got here, sometimes it seems this task could only be accomplished through melody and harmony. This is where Mad Passenger comes in. The scapegoat of an endless battle, fronted by the enigmatic Ian Arieta, Mad Passenger takes you on the scenic route, through a tour of our present set of worlds and emotions.

Through this debut release, Mad Passenger wastes no time at all in making their case for a place in the hearts of every man and woman. With swirling harmonies, steady guitar, and beautiful vocals, Mad Passenger is sure to grab hold of your attention and keep you tied in for the ride.

Based presently out of Providence, Rhode Island, this is not a band that you want to miss on their climb to the ethers of the rock n roll world.
