Melodime
Melodime
Melodime's music merges a slight country twang with rock and roll, successfully blending stunning piano melodies with catchy guitar riffs and sing-along choruses.

Melodime, featuring Brad Rhodes (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Sammy Duis (piano, organ, bass), Tyler Duis (drums), and Jon Wiley (guitar, mandolin, dobro, bg vocals), has performed 125+ shows annually throughout the continental United States, sharing the stage with such well-known acts as  Sam Hunt, Jonny Lang, A Thousand Horses, and Sister Hazel. The band has also left its mark internationally with performances in Mexico, Canada, and Europe, all while founding and running a charity, ‘Now I Play Along Too,’ which provides musical instruments and lessons to underprivileged children in the DC area, Florida and Haiti. The band is quickly becoming a fan-favorite in the festival scene, playing four consecutive Rock Boat  cruises, as well as Musikfest, Herndon Festival and other events. Around their hometown of Northern Virginia, the group has performed at such popular venues as The Hamilton, The State Theatre, and 9:30 Club.

Melodime's latest single, "Little Thing Called Love,” has received a great response from both fans and critics alike. The Boot describe the track as "catchy, lyrically strong - and perfect to listen to with the windows down during the summertime months," while Tune Collective describes the track as a “fun song bursting with vibrant uplifting energy." Kings of A&R featured the band as a buzzing act, and The Washington Post noted "It doesn’t pay for those who want to say ‘I saw them way back when’ to procrastinate."  Melodime’s previous albums were recorded with platinum-selling producers, including Where the Sinners & the Saints Collide with Rick Beato  (Parmalee, NeedToBreathe), and 3 Reasons For Fighting with Jim Ebert (Butch Walker, Cowboy Mouth).
The Quixote Project
The Quixote Project
We are a neo-roots music outfit. From Rock to Reggae, Bluegrass to Blues we like to pull from traditional genres to blur the fine lines of modern music. With two albums under our belt we are excited to present our newest set of songs on our EP "BONE SHAKER" "Take a little slice of Avett Brothers, sprinkle with some Sublime and you got yourself a slice of Quioxte pie" (Miles Christrup).

We recently released our new record "Land of Plenty" produced at Cambridge Sound Studios which is now available at all major streaming/download services. Our last album "Bone Shaker" helped us get nominated as "NJ Indie Band Of The Year" by Tri State Indie, and our song "Tread Easy" was nominated for "Best Folk Song" by 93.7FM Hometown Heroes at the annual Homey Awards.

We have shared the stage with notable artists such as Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert, Charlie Daniels, John Pardi, Ben Arnold, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, The Goddamn Gallows, Hoots & Hellmouth, and many other regional/locall bands. We sincerely appreciate the continued love and support. Cheers music. The QP
Andrea Nardello
Philly's Andrea Nardello has garnered favorable comparisons to Melissa Etheridge and Shawn Colvin for melding pop songwriting smarts with a confessional and literate songwriting style which often explores relationships, romance, and her own "out" family life. Andrea has been busy touring in support of her EP, entitled ECHO, opening for Brandi Carlile, Tony Lucca, Gabe Dixon, Ron Pope, and Emerson Hart of Tonic fame. After releasing ECHO, Andrea won the prestigious Philadelphia Songwriter's Project Contest and Tri-State Indie's "Acoustic Artist Of The Year". Her song "Home To Me" also won WSTW's Award for Folk Song Of The Year. Andrea's refined accessibility draws from folk, rock, soul, and even the swagger of hip-hop. Recently, Andrea returned to the studio with ECHO producer Matt Chiaravalle (Warren Zevon, Josh Joplin) and has released her new studio EP, Fire.
