Before adding a request please:

Please do not list yourself, or your own band, as this is considered promotional. Whether your band warrants inclusion in Wikipedia is a decision that should be made by someone else.

Consensus appears to be to list individuals alphabetically by their first name, and all band names beginning with "A", "An", or "The" should be placed alphabetically by the second word in their name.

Sources must be provided at the end of the article request, and the article itself must be linked. Any request that does not follow these guidelines will be removed.

Before you save the page, please make sure to preview the page that the article is a red link, otherwise, disambiguate it usually with (band) or (group) or if these already exist, then you can usually disambiguate it further by origin (American band) or by genre (rock band), etc.

Also, when adding a request, please include as much information as possible (such as webpages, articles, or other reference material) so editors can find and distinguish your request from an already-created article.

  • Dangermaker (Artist) Dangermaker emerged from San Francisco, CA in 2009 when singer/songwriter Adam Burnett unveiled a series of unfinished home demos to drummer Carlos Rodrigues. They collaborated to create edgier sounding songs than either had previously and went into PopSmear Studios to record with Scott Llamas (Dizzy Balloon/Panda, The Action Design, Finish Ticket), resulting in a widely reviewed 5-track EP including the Owl Mag naming Dangermaker “One of my top 5 favorite Indie bands in the Bay Area”. However, the band was still an incomplete duo until keyboardist David DeAngelis left the Arkansas Delta to see what the West Coast had to offer and brought bassist Neko along one night. While all four members began as complete strangers, they were brought together by a shared passion and need to create music reflective of their diverse backgrounds, tastes, and influences, a need that came to fruition when they went into Studio SQ in 2011 to record “Black Dream” with producers John Flores and Justin Sachs (Two Gallants, A B & The Sea, Foreign Cinema). What they could not have imagined was that during the first week of tracking, Adam’s father suffered a fatal accident and suddenly passed away. Dangermaker gained direct insight into a parable that artists have held throughout time — human experience is the substance from which honest and true works of art are formed. While the recording process nearly ground to a halt, the band ultimately used the tragedy as creative motivation and admit that “Without realizing it the experience influenced many of the new songs found on the record. Writing and recording became a process that brought us all together.” Hot on the heels of their 2013 debut album Black Dream, Breakup Records also released Light The Dark I in the fall 2014, which has received rave reviews and serves as a signed testament to the timeless maturity and solidity of the band's sound. Channeling a signature brand of dark indie pop ala early Killers, Phoenix, and White Lies has propelled the band forward to recent showcases at SXSW, CMJ and beyond.

  • Epoch Failure (band) - Epoch Failure is an urban pop duo resulting from the collaborative efforts of singer/producer Billy Joe Marrero and rapper Nick Young. With this charismatic pair, what you see is what you get. And that’s simply a couple regular guys from The Garden State. No egos. No attitudes. Just a lot of talent. Billy Joe (aka “Billy The Kidd”) was born and raised in Camden, NJ. As one of five boys growing up in a single parent home, he’s no stranger to challenges. In 2007, ABC’s 20/20 came to Camden to profile children growing up under the conditions of extreme poverty. Billy was one of three kids selected by the show’s producers. For nearly a year he was followed by news anchor Diane Sawyer and crew, who even spent a night in his family’s house to experience sleep without heat or power. After this 20/20 special aired, the positive response to Billy and his family was overwhelming. So much so, they were nominated for an Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. The makeover included a full home recording studio for Billy to pursue his musical passions and this was -ultimately- his launching pad and turning point. Putting his degree from Camden’s Creative Arts High School to good use, Billy’s been crafting infectious melodies and bangin’ out monster tracks ever since. Nick (aka “Nickey Knoxx”) was born in Brooklyn, raised in Williston, SC and then bounced around the east coast before finally landing in Trenton, NJ. As a rapper, Nick has been grinding on the Jersey hip hop scene since his early teens. Once of legal age, he enlisted in the Army as a way to receive a college education and open up more options for his future. Nick attended West Virginia University and now, in addition to penning brilliant lyrics and party-rockin’ crazy crowds, he serves full-time in the New Jersey Army National Guard as a photographer and broadcast journalist. While they likely refer to him as Staff Sergeant Young, rather than Nickey Knoxx, his Army superiors are extremely supportive of his musical mission. In September, 2013, Epoch Failure signed with North Star Media for an exclusive publishing and recording contract.

The official website (including the links to the band interviews, press quotations and other resources)

Despite meeting Wikipedia's criteria of notability (2 albums on Acetate, Ramones-associated members), the information on the band is scarce and finding reliable sources is challenging (which is another reason this is a request for an article rather than an attempt to write one). The original publications of the independent materials (like those cited on the band's website) tend to be rarely available online and multilingual. Nevertheless, here is what I've managed to find so far: discography and line-up - , , ; 2010 Spanish tour with Daniel Rey - ; press-clipping from the Ghostrider label (featuring scanned review from the Rolling Stone Germany magazine) - ; an early album review in a Spanish magazine (page 119) - .Hope this would make it enough to get an article appear on the requested list, so that the better informed community members could be extending the material over time.

The idea that worshiping Jesus Christ is best done not when we sing about Him or what He has done or what He will do in the future. The highest and best worship is modeled by what the angels do: sing to God about God. Vertical. Vertical Church is a collection of people who play every week in places all over Chicagoland as part of a church that believes singing isn’t a warm-up for the sermon; singing is a warm-up for heaven.

  • Vicetone Vicetone are an electronic music duo from the Netherlands, consisting of Ruben den Boer and Victor Pool.

Several hours from any signs of nightlife in Amsterdam and with nothing more than a small home studio in rural Netherlands, the duo set out on their goal - crafting a harmonic, melody driven, Big Room sound that is as easy to listen to in your home as it is on the dance floor.Now only one year since the fruition of Vicetone, the Dutch duo is having the breakout year that many aspiring producers can only wish to sell their souls for; gracing the 2013 DJ Mag Top 100 poll at #60, racking up five HypeM #1’s, performing on a 6 week sold out North American tour, playing internationally renowned clubs including Ushuaia Ibiza and Ministry of Sound London as well as festivals such as Tomorrowworld and Electric Zoo, and releasing multiple Beatport Top 10 charting singles including “Heartbeat” featuring Colin McLoughlin and “Stars” featuring Jonny Rose.In August 2013, Vicetone released their most noteworthy record to date, “Tremble” on Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings.

With their “music first” philosophy, it is only a matter of time until they join the top ranks of DJ/Producers they idolized only months ago. As Ruben and Victor would say, "Music means everything to us, and our goal in life is to share our passion and love for it".(

  • The Wheeler Brothers Making music continues to be a family affair for Wheeler Brothers. The Austin, TX quintet traces a personal lineage of rock, folk, roots, Americana, and blues on its second full-length album, Gold Boots Glitter [Bismeaux Records], cooking up an irresistible and inimitable gumbo of styles in the process. Marching forward from 2011's critically acclaimed Portraits, the group—Nolan Wheeler [vocals, guitar], Patrick Wheeler [drums], Tyler Wheeler [bass], A.J. Molyneaux [guitar, lap steel, back up vocals], and Nathan Rigney [guitar, backup vocals]—opens the door even wider for everyone to join the family. [493]
  • The White Buffalo Music, [494], a country western/folk/blues/classic rock/organic Americana singer/songwriter whose tracks have appeared on TV shows Sons of Anarchy and Californication. Currently signed to Unison Music. Gigs with artists including Gomez, Ziggy Marley, and Donavon Frankenreiter and in locales as widespread as Japan and Australia spread the word of mouth about The White Buffalo. When pro surfer Chris Malloy heard Smith's music, he included the song "Wrong" in his movie Shelter, and White Buffalo tracks later appeared on the TV shows Sons of Anarchy and Californication. The 2010 EP Prepare for Black & Blue brought Smith to the attention of Unison Music, which signed The White Buffalo; the label's heads, Bruce Witkin and Ryan Dorn, also co-produced 2012's full-length Once Upon a Time in the West, featuring the talents of drummer Matt Lynott and bassist Tommy Andrews. The White Buffalo represents an authentic homage to the times of hard touring, hard drinking artists who truly lived what they sang about. Seamlessly moving from heartfelt ballads to raucous bar songs, The White Buffalo sings with honesty and thoughtful reflection as he travels the road, sharing his music. Everything about him is big, from his imposing physical size to his amazing vocal range. From his whiskey-drenched, growling lows to heart-stopping highs, The White Buffalo paints a touching picture, whether he stands alone or performs with his energetic, charismatic band. After vigorously road testing his new material, The White Buffalo is releasing his latest EP, Prepare for Black & Blue on Ruff Shod Records, State Radio's imprint label through Nettwerk, this fall. Produced by Jimmy Messer, this collection of songs showcases The White Buffalo's stripped down unmistakable sound. [495] [496] [497] [498] [499] [500] [501]
