Music Submission, Starveya

Artist or Band Name: 


This is Aaron from the band Starveya. Our new single "Moontide" is set to release at the end of this month and I hope that someone at BBS might be interested in featuring it. I have included the official press release below. Thank you for your time.

Aaron Martinez-Starveya

STARVEYA is set to release “Moontide” on May 29th, 2020, their first new single since 2018’s “Olde Crow”. Available here:

STARVEYA is a psychedelic, alternative rock band from the fringes of Los Angeles, California. Originating around the turn of the millennium, their music can be described as a fusion between the classic studio recordings of the late 1960’s, and that of the heavier grunge movement of the early 1990’s. The band exemplifies both of these elements in their 2013 EP Stellar Womb, coming together to showcase its own fresh, modern sound.

“Moontide” is inspired by Bob Dylan’s take on folk music, particularly the historic, "My Back Pages". STARVEYA guitarist and primary songwriter Aaron Martinez, adds that the subject matter of the song was originally inspired by the tragic death of Pink Floyd’s Syd Barret. Gradually, the focus shifted to include all people throughout the millennia that were considered crazy or foolish in their own time, but later looked back on as geniuses, innovators and prophets. “A madman today is just a hero tomorrow” and “the saviors, they never get saved” are a few lyrics from “Moontide” that illustrate the lives of such visionaries as Giordano Bruno, Galileo, Socrates and Jesus Christ, who had the misfortune of being ahead of their times, and whose importance in history is only fully realized posthumously.

STARVEYA is currently in the studio working on their upcoming, full-length album Abandon All Muses, which is slated for a 2021 release.

I’m Damon Mitchell. On May 22nd, I’m releasing a new single, “Ready For Change,” that I think you would like and that has a timely message that BBS fans would relate to. 

Here is a private SoundCloud link where you can listen to “Ready For Change” as well as a Google Drive link to the behind-the-scenes video that will be released via Vevo.

“Ready For Change” is a vulnerable insight to the constant struggle against the feeling of inadequacy, loneliness, and not being enough. Punctuated by a plea - or moreover a call-to-action - of change, the song seems more timely now than ever. 

The song was written by Damon Mitchell and the recording features Walfredo Reyes Jr. (Chicago, Santana, etc.) on percussion, Ryland Steen (America, Reel Big Fish) on drums, Dave Martin on bass, Audie Blaylock (Audie Blaylock and Redline, Rhonda Vincent) on 12-string acoustic, Carolyn Martin (The Time Jumpers) on backing vocals, Max Mitchell on backing vocals and keyboards, and Damon Mitchell on electric guitar and lead vocals. 


"A well-crafted cross between The Beatles and Death Cab for Cutie." That's the intriguing description of Damon Mitchell's music recently given by a well-respected music industry photojournalist. Damon's hook- laden, musical-wares cleverly combines influences from the past and present in a unique concoction that will undoubtedly become his signature.

“The music climate as we know it today is sorely, sorely lacking in the straight up melodic bliss department. With too much emphasis on soundscape and not enough on melody, an entire generation of songwriters look like they’re forgetting about the one fundamental necessity in which every great song is based’ melody. If you’re on board so far- and I’m sure you are- then I’m sure you’ll be up for what I’m about to tell you next. Elise is the new six-song EP from singer-songwriter extraordinaire Damon Mitchell. No fluff. No nonsense. No bullshit.” - Alternative Nation

It would truly be an honor for “Ready For Change” to be featured in on BBS. If you have any questions/comments or would like to set up an interview, please feel free to reach me at this email. 

Peace and Health,
Damon Mitchell 

Music Submission, RH2

RH2 - Like Nobody's Around
Artist or Band Name: 

Dylan Jackson Scott is a man on a journey. His band, RH2 is music with a rare sort of honesty and ambition. “I want people to know that I care about them,” says Dylan, plainly. “For me it’s musical and cultural. I don’t want to make a difference for the sake of shaping culture, I want to do it because it’s desperate for oxygen.” While his past endeavors, including New Jersey’s Young Rising Sons and Los Angeles-based Rad Horror, created their own sonic ripples and racked up Spotify plays, now with songs like the confessional “In My Head”, RH2 is the sound of an artist coming into his own.

“This is the first time I’ve felt that I could say everything I wanted to and needed to say as a person and a songwriter,” Dylan admits. “The songs are my truth without any sort of apology.” Also known as a songwriter and producer for the likes of Halsey and many others, Dylan and RH2 is intent on crafting anthems and sharing insight to the modern generation.

“I’m inspired by people like Bob Dylan, Kurt Cobain, Lou Reed and more recent artists like, Kanye West and Jay- Z,” says Dylan. “I’m inspired by art, by literature, and by people I heavily identify with. The ones who struggled with mental illness and a troubled youth, but were incredibly prolific and created great art in spite of themselves and the harsh limitations they faced along the way. I know I have something to say, but I want it to be from my perspective, rolling off of my own tongue. RH2 is my vehicle for that.”
