The Porcelain Pistols, a rock/acoustic style band based in Southern California, formed in October 2010. Since the release of the EP, the Porcelain Pistols have played at such venues as the House of Blues, The Yost Theater, and The Playground Festival….playing with national acts including Sevendust, The Bravery, Fishbone, and Static Lullaby. For the last year the band has been focusing on their upcoming release Porcelain Pistols, B- Sides. Which is an all acoustic album with flares of pop, country, and latin styles. Ready to show the world the softer side of rock, the Porcelain Pistols prove that they are here to stay with their wide variety of musical talent.
Born and raised on 10 acres of old farmland, 24-year singer-songwriter, Caitlin Linney, moved to Los Angeles one year ago to record and release her self-titled debut. Caitlin's release is a cross-over album that pairs pop and country music; one that marries banjo and reverse mandolin with electric guitar.
Growing up in North Carolina, Caitlin explored every option possible to further her career in music. Whether it be playing at local venues on weekends or recording in her bedroom, music and performance consumed most of her time. She moved to Boston, MA to attend Emerson College where she created her own major that allowed her to study performance, music and songwriting by taking classes at Berklee College of Music. After graduation she moved west by means of a little red Honda Civic to begin working on her album.
This past October Caitlin was opening for country-singer, Josh Turner, and released her album on Dec. 4th, 2012 which is now available on iTunes.
Boston native, Mike Burke, has had a musical path unlike most. Learning several instruments as a child, he never performed or really thought about pursuing music as a career. His interest in math and economics took him to New York's Wall st. where he spent 8 years working, still writing and playing music on the side. Mike has always been involved in working with children and organizations that help children/people in need. In 2008, he started working with Musicians On Call, where he would play for children who were in isolation units in different hospitals around Manhattan. In 2010, he started working with Mid Atlantic Burn Camp where children who are burn survivors can experience a summer camp with other young burn survivors like themselves. in 2011, realizing that his music was actually helping others, he decided to leave Wall st., move to LA to pursue music full time, and support the organizations as much as he could by donating half his music proceeds to them. In 2013, Mike will be traveling with CHAP International to Liberia, West Africa to help build orphanages
and help those who have lost so much. In addition to working with these organizations, Mike has made great strides since moving to LA; releasing his 2nd EP, winning the 2012 Malibu Music Awards, singing the National Anthem at several MLB/NBA games, as well as playing several multi city tours on both the east and west coasts. His music and his lifestyle promote his message of Be Happy & Help Others,
hopefully inspiring others to do the same.
