Still a young man, but the talented Brazilian singer, songwriter and composer Andrew Laureth began his professional carreer in music no less than twelve years ago.

He built this carreer quite meticulously. In 2003, his adventure started, with his first band Sixth Command. The next step would be A(L)titude, a Brazilian group that not only toured extensively through Brazil, but crossed the ocean to Europe. After two studio albums, and a very hectic tour schedule, which saw the band play Portugese, British, Italian and Dutch stages, it was time to stand on his own two feet. His solo debut So Much More came out in 2011. In 2014, he worked with American producer Michael Binder, which resulted in the release of his sophomore record Windows Of The Soul. During the accompanying tour, Laureth can not only draw from two albums of original material, but he’s put some great Brazilian classics in his repertoire as well. Andrew Laureth is making big moves towards becoming a big name. You can see this rising star now at The Waterhole!

Alvarez Kings (USA)
More details

Warner Brothers / Sire Records recording artist Alvarez Kings are an alternative, indie, pop band from South Yorkshire, UK getting ready to release their debut LP into the world.

Four lads from South Yorkshire, UK who gleefully share their moniker with an infamous old school South American gang, Alvarez Kings summon pop power through timeless analog synth and guitar magic. The quartet—brothers Simon [vocals, guitar] and Paul Thompson [bass, keys, backup vocals], Sean Parkin [guitar], and Richard Walker [drums, samples, pads]—has quietly built up an international buzz since their 2012 formation.

BBC Radio proclaimed “No Resolve” the “Single of the Year,” while they impressed audiences at Isle of Wight and O2 Wireless Festival in addition to show-stopping stints on the Vans Warped Tour in 2013 and 2015 and support slots on tours with Melanie Martinez, PVRIS, and Echosmith. Their 2015 EP, Fear To Feel, expanded their foothold in the U.S. Spotify featured the title track on coveted playlists such as The Indie Mix and Ultimate Indie Playlist, notching 40K streams in less than 12 hours and eventually amassing over 700K and counting. Meanwhile, they drew acclaim from Billboard, Huffington Post, and more. Preceded by the introductory focus track “Cold Conscience,” their full-length debut, Somewhere Between [Sire/Warner Bros. Records], is now primed to make a significant impact in 2017.

American Hitmen
More details

From the battlefields in Iraq to the legendary stage of Radio City Music Hall, the American Hitmen have done it all!
Brothers and Marine Corps Combat Veterans, Tim and Dan Cord, founded the band with fellow Marines and musicians in 2005. After serving 4 honorable years and 2 combat tours in Iraq, they decided to leave the Marine Corps to pursue a career in music in 2007. The brothers left the over-saturated Southern California music scene and moved to Utah, where they fell into true harmony with the addition of drummer, Phil Snyder, and bassist, Dave Briggs.

In late 2009, the band was invited to be the first American rock band in 36 years to perform in Vietnam. At the Ho Chi Minh City Hard Rock Café, the American Hitmen made brought a new and unfamiliar sound to the Vietnamese people, performing Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way” with none other than Run DMC in front of a sold-out crowd on the night of the Hard Rock grand opening.

In 2013, the band auditioned for and made it through 3 elimination rounds on Season 8 of America’s Got Talent, finishing out their run with a pitch perfect live and televised performance at Radio City Music Hall. With their new found popularity, the band hit the North American tour circuit with a fury! Within the last 3 years, the American Hitmen have performed alongside some of the most internationally recognized musicians, such as Foo Fighters, Living Colour, Black Stone Cherry, the Charlie Daniels Band, Sheryl Crow, 3 Doors Down, Social Distortion and many more!

In 2016, the band toured Europe and the UK once on their own in April, and were invited back for an Armed Forces Entertainment tour in June/July. The band finished out their second tour by performing for 13,000+ active duty military and their families on Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany! In March of 2017, the Hitmen performed for the US military in Egypt, Romania, and Jordan, becoming the first band to ever perform at any of the bases in those countries!

The American Hitmen are definitely becoming the true definition of all things American and Rock ‘n’ Roll!
