Capital Cities

DURAN DURAN

Walk Off The Earth

Capital Cities is an American pop duo from Los Angeles, California, formed in 2010 by Ryan Merchant (vocals, keyboard, guitar) and Sebu Simonian (vocals, keyboard). Their debut EP was released in June, 2011, with lead single "Safe and Sound" which went multi-platinum around the world and shot to the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. “Safe and Sound” ultimately proved irresistible as the track reached no. 1 on alternative radio and no. 2 on Billboard’s Mainstream Top 40 chart. The song’s video—a celebration of dance crazes from across the eras—earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best Music Video and won the Best Visual Effects prize at the MTV Video Music Awards. The bands early success prompted the duo to launch a self-financed radio campaign and head out on a self-booked tour throughout Europe and South America. By the end of 2012, with their fan base rapidly expanding across the globe, Capital Cities inked a deal with Capitol Records and set to work on their first full-length record. The band's debut album, In a Tidal Wave of Mystery, was released in June, 2013, and debuted at number sixty-six on the Billboard 200 chart.

This fully realized live version of Capital Cities consists of Ryan Merchant, Sebu Simonian, Manny Quintero on bass guitar, Spencer Ludwig on trumpet, Nick Merwin on guitar and Channing Holmes on drums. The band has played festivals internationally, including Lollapalooza, SXSW, Coachella, and has opened shows for Katey Perry, Jane's Addiction, Asher Roth, and many others. Whether performing at one of their notoriously dazzling live shows or crafting new material for their second full-length effort (set for 2017), Capital Cities aims to create an emotionally charged experience that’s transportive for themselves and for the listener.

Duran Duran’s most recent studio album, Paper Gods, is the iconic British band’s highest-charting release in 22 years, and their fourteenth full-length record in a storied career that has spanned three-plus decades. The stats on Duran Duran are remarkable: a total of more than 100 million records sold, 18 American hit singles, 20 UK Top 20 tunes, and a global presence that guarantees them huge concert audiences on five continents. More remarkable still is the way the band — singer Simon Le Bon, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor, and drummer Roger Taylor — have achieved this: fusing pop music, art, technology, and fashion with a sense of style and confidence that have made them a unique and unstoppable force. Their latest album, Paper Gods, is produced by Mark Ronson, Nile Rodgers, Josh Blair, and Mr Hudson, and features collaborations with Janelle Monáe, John Frusciante, Kiesza, Jonas Bjerre (of Mew), and Lindsay Lohan.  In the live arena they have been joined on stage by a host of contemporary superstars, from Brandon Flowers, Billy Corgan, and Kelis, to Gerard Way, Beth Ditto, and DJ Steve Aoki, to name a few. This year, the band continues their world tour in support of the critically acclaimed Paper Gods.

Walk Off The Earth is an unconventional, multi-talented five-piece musical phenomena that is currently taking the world by storm. Based in Burlington, Ontario (just outside of Toronto), their brilliant 5-people-playing-one-guitar interpretation of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” exploded on YouTube garnering well over 35 million views in under 2 weeks. The massive response quickly drew attention to their collection of innovative songs and videos generating an unprecedented flood of media interest. In November 2012, the band signed a recording contract with Columbia Records, and released the single “Red Hands” peaking at number 9 on the Canadian Hot 100, and winning them the Canadian Radio Music Award for “Song of the Year”. The bands full-length album, R.E.V.O., was released in March 2013, with singles “Gang of Rhythm” and “Shake” also charting in the top 100. Their second full length album released in 2015, Sing it All Away, continued the band’s success with multiple radio hits including “Rule the World” and “Hold On”, earning the band their first Juno award for “Group of the Year” at the 2016 Juno Awards. The band’s latest single “Fire in My Soul” released in 2016 has also garnered significant radio play charting in the top 100.

The band’s organic, independent, sincere and honest original songwriting, cover interpretations and beautifully filmed videos have built a dedicated following of fans from around the world. The chemistry between the members of Walk Off The Earth is undeniable. Ryan Marshall, Sarah Blackwood and Gianni Luminati s individual vocal stylings mesh seamlessly with Mike Taylor’s haunting harmonies and keys, all the while soaring over epic melodic arrangements held together by Joel Cassady’s driving and prolific percussion work. Their independent spirit, unstoppable work ethic and awe-inspiring creativity has catapulted Walk Off The Earth into new and uncharted waters with only bigger and better things on the horizon.
