Exploiting Eve . . . . 213-694-0142 . . 562-804-3238 . . "Many groups have combined power chords with beautiful melodies, but rarely as well as Exploiting Eve. There are moments of heavenly purity in their songs; then they crush your ribcage with a mountain of sound. Andres Ramos and Vincent Ramos, on drums and bass, are phenomenal at any speed. John Vastano and Victor Lozano, on guitars, create the kind of audio affluence every music junkie craves. Out front is Janelle Barreto, one of the strongest vocalists on the scene. What is most impressive about Exploiting Eve is the way their sensual vocal melodies snake around chord structures that take off down their own dark passageways."

Fractura . . . . 323-962-3129 . . . . Fractura can be defined as a drastic impact which results in a breaking apart of elements and drawing their strengths from conquering their fractures. Fractura also represents the shattering of false expectations, throwing off the chains and boundaries that limit possibilities. The members of the L.A. band, Fractura, are searching for something ”new” and ”brutal” along with ”commitment” and ”musical vision.” Lead singer Gabby states ”We strive towards an energetic, contagious groove with an emotional, physical, and fun emphasis. I like the idea of representing a heavier, stronger side of woman. I think it’s a fairly unexplored territory. Women are more empowered now, and we like the idea of representing that strength. Our music is heavy and we get to the point. You either love or hate what we do.”
