Originally from Massachusetts and raised by artists, Ludwig-Leone of SAN FERMIN began making music at age eight and later studied music composition at Yale University. After a job assisting composer Nico Muhly, he founded SAN FERMIN and released their full-length debut in 2013, which NPR called “one of the year’s most ambitious, evocative, and moving records.” The band’s sophomore album Jackrabbit arrived in April 2015, debuting at #8 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and solidifying the band’s spellbinding live show. Lauded as “explosive” (The New York Times) and “exceptional” (The Wall Street Journal), SAN FERMIN has sold out shows worldwide and has opened for the likes of St. Vincent, The National, Arctic Monkeys, and alt-J.
Formerly the frontman of Philadelphia based rock and roll band, TOY SOLDIERS, RON GALLO has gone through the return of saturn and the wringer of life over the last couple of years and has come out the other side a person that dances where the infuriated rock and roll fighter-of-the-good-fight and the discontent clear-headed jokester hang out. Like some big-haired spiritual punk raised in the 90s, GALLO is well-informed of the 20th century roots of american music and obsessed with the NOW in a time where people are drugged by distraction and mediocrity. On RON GALLO's second solo record, HEAVY META (out September 2016), he tackles the heavier topics and dark experiences he lived through during these transformative years.
