One EskimO and Alpha Rev

Indie Rock

Thu, July 1

One EskimO is a four piece indie rock group from London, England and frontman Kristian Leontiou describes its sound as “magical, ambient, filmic, acoustic, beautiful and meaningful.” Leontiou was a popular UK solo artist in 2004, but broke away from the pop scene in order to “write about how I felt about life, love, losses and failures, highs and lows, even heartbreaks. But also about how amazing human life is and how mind-blowing our very existence is.”

  • Alpha Rev is a rock band from Austin, Texas fronted by former Endochine lead singer Casey McPherson, who was featured in the Nov/Dec 2007 issue of American Songwriter Magazine as one of the best new and upcoming songwriters. The band is currently considered one of VH-1’s one to watch bands.
  • One eskimO supported Tori Amos on her 2009 Sinful Attraction Tour and subsequently released the 4-track “One eskimO EP”. They performed on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in the US in March of 2010.
  • Alpha Rev leader Casey McPherson started the band in 2005 after the breakup of his previous band Endochine, which had toured with Staind, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pete Yorn and Bob Schneider.
  • Alpha Rev’s current hit, “New Morning,” is a big hit on the VH-1 Top 20 Countdown.
