Road to ‘Renegade’: A.T. Branch is ‘Ready 4 War’

As an Army veteran, A.T. Branch has experienced life from a perspective different from most of us. As a child of a musical family, the Detroit native paints from a sonic palette that encompasses formative influences like gospel, R&B, and jazz; intense shades of rock; the polish of modern pop; and a hushed, yet powerful vocal tone that has drawn comparisons to Britney Spears.

Everything we just mentioned shows up on A.T.’s debut single, “Ready 4 War,” which releases to the world on Friday, September 20.

Cat London: Live at City View Sound

Cat London is a New Jersey-based indie artist, backed onstage and in the studio with a dark pop conglomeration that includes Rich Aveo (piano/vocals), Paul O’Keeffe (bass), and Anthony Freda (drums). London’s sound, performance, and songwriting combines Ryan Adams and Damien Rice’s tender portrayal of love and conflict with electrified indie pop tunes, invoking the energy of Lana Del Rey and Lady Gaga. In fact, we might as well add in some Fiona Apple and Jewel, while we’re at it.
