Hot off the heels of our exciting Believe Digital acquisition announcement, we’re pleased to update you with news from our sunny Burbank, CA Publishing Administration office! New artists, exciting pitches, and rad placements ahead…

SONGWRITER HIGHLIGHTS

Comprised of Adam Brooks, Andy Fischer-Price, and Allie Gonino, The Good Mad is an indie-folk trio that have found success through both acting and music. Gonino and The Good MadBrooks both starred in the ABC Family hit TV show, The Lying Game, while Fischer-Price has acted in various TV series and lent his voice to several animated movies including Monsters University. The Lying Game took notice of their musical talent, and together they recorded and performed several songs on the show.

Often compared to Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers, The Good Mad’s folk style combines harmonies, violin, and acoustic guitar while letting their country-music background shine through. These multi-talented musicians most recently released their newest EP, Face Your Feels, in January and continue to find time to play shows while having busy acting careers.

California natives, Private Island, have filled their newest EP, A Good Look, with their brand of unique and catchy beach-groove rock songs. Vocalists Christian Lum and Private IslandMichelle Guerrero’s dreamy vocals give this alt-rock band a retro vibe while Roger Mawer and Cameron Anderson’s rhythmic guitars give their music a funky, dance feel.

Private Island plays shows regularly around the Los Angeles area, and are currently in pre-production for their next single, set to be released this summer.
