The Cab and Imagine Dragons are two local bands that are ready to explode. The Cab's "Endlessly" has been a big hit for us. Imagine Dragons are amazing. It's cool to see them breaking through nationally.

LoveSick Radio has been playing around town while here writing with Mark Spiro. I got to listen to some of the new stuff and it's amazing-a really unique sound. They played the Grammy Block Party and opened for the Fray and Bon Jovi at New Jersey's Meadowlands two years ago.

New Hollow is from my hometown of Columbus, Ohio. They're young, good-looking guys that girls are going to love. They write their own songs and have three or four that I would bet are top 10 hits. I saw them play in Columbus and was crazy impressed.
