Otep Shamaya’s music is formed from the poetic marrow of creative intercourse. Art for art’s sake. She was signed to Capitol Records in 2002 after only 5 shows, without a demo, and strictly on the power of her live performance. Since then, she has spoken at the Democratic National Convention on behalf of Rock the Vote, nominated by GLAAD for Outstanding Artist Award with Lady Gaga and Adam Lambert, won MTV’s prestigious BEST VIDEO for Music with a message award. She has recorded 6 studio albums, 1 EP, and 1 live album, all original music, recorded several spoken word projects, expanded into the world of Voice Over for television, video games (THE LAST OF US), and major motion pictures (THE HOBBIT: The Battle Of The Five Armies), authored 3 books of original poetry, and continues to write and contribute to many other projects.
“Following in the footsteps of outspoken musicians from folk singer Woody Guthrie to Rage Against The Machine’s Zach de la Rocha, Otep Shamaya has positioned herself as one of music’s catalysts for social change.” — Revolver Magazine

The World Over
The World Over is led by front-woman Tiaday Ball, granddaughter of Ernie Ball (world renowned creator of Music Man guitars and Slinky Strings). With post-hardcore roots from their first record, “Rampart District”, T.W.O. recorded a new album with Siegfried Meier (Kitty, DMX) that will break the boundaries of the Rock world reaching a much broader spectrum of listeners. “MOUNTAINS” is out now on all music streaming services (iTunes, Spotify, iHeartRadio, Google Play, etc).
The World Over was created in 2013 by musicians who all moved to Los Angeles from around the world with the mutual goal to make music. Founders Xavier Moreux, Tiaday Ball, Ryan Knecht, Anthony Dellaripa, and Eric Gledhill conceptualized a band who could represent many different cultures and promote messages of hope and empowerment. Within one year of forming, T.W.O. collaborated with former Escape the Fate guitarist, Omar Espinosa, to create “Rampart District” EP released August 19th, 2014.
Donovan Allen (bassist) joined the team in the year of 2015 when they released a single & music video for “EULOGY”.
T.W.O. has rocked alongside acts such as Attila, As Blood Runs Black, Meytal Cohen, The Browning, and more on renowned stages such as the House Of Blues, Whisky A Go Go and The Viper Room.

Within Sight was founded in the winter of 2011 by guitarists Steven Carlson and Grant Evans. In November of 2013, after trying out many musicians to fill the positions they needed, Within Sight found its third guitarist/soloist Sean Searls. Shortly after, they found the youngest member of the band, their drummer Sean Trenda only 19 years old. Jeremy Jordan (vocalist) and Jimmy Sandvig (Bassist) were a package deal and contacted the band from an online ad. Once Jeremy and Jimmy heard the bands instrumental demo, they were sold. After one try-out, they were the last two members to complete the lineup of Within Sight.
In May of 2014, Within Sight released a three track demo to promote the album “The Distance Traveled” that is scheduled to be released in January of next year. The album has a huge variety of influences from all its band members. This is what makes Within Sight unique from most metal today. Steven has studied Bullet For My Valentine and Trivium shaping him into the guitarist he is today. Sean (Shredder) has a huge Metallica influence and can bring any song to life with a shredding solo. Grant brings pop punk into the mix with an A Day To Remember influence. Trenda (G baby or better known as Gerber because he is so small compared to the rest of the band) has studied the unforgettable Rev from Avenged Sevenfold since he started playing drums in 2007. Primus is the best way to describe Jimmy, his personality and talent reflects what he listens to. Jeremy was born to be a front man. Previously a drummer/ lead vocalist of his last band and studying Killswitch Engage, Jeremy took his talent to the next level focusing on his vocals.
Within Sight has been gaining some ground considering half of the members have never been in bands or played a live show before, this band has come a long way from their first performance at the Hawthorn Theater on March 2nd in Portland OR. Now, booked through the end of the year Within Sight is scheduled to play a total of 16 shows. On top of all the self promoting and acquiring merchandise, recording has been a huge effort between shows. Also along with their album The Distance Traveled, Within Sight has been working on a music video that will be released with the album. All of Within Sights events and efforts are supported evenly by each member and could not happen without all of them. The band is projected to take the west coast by storm with a small west coast tour in the summer and at least triple the amount of shows played next year. “There is never a show not worth playing” Jeremy says, “A couple people or a couple hundred people, we will always put on a show and continue to do what we love”.
