The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
The RJA story goes back to 2003, actually much further back to when brothers Ronnie and Randy Winter first started playing on acoustic guitars their grandfather gave them, but we’ll skip the ‘they learned to play and formed a bunch of bands that ultimately lead them down the path to glory’ bit and jump in where they were making so much noise that it attracted Virgin Records who snapped them up released the bands debut LP, Dont You Fake It in 2006.
By the end of that year the album was certified Gold in the US, charted the singles Guardian Angel and their best known song, the anti domestic violence focused, Face Down (which is also featured in several video games) and spawned four music videos. A deluxe edition was released in early 2007 featured the track Disconnected which up until then was only available to Australian fans.
Second album Lonely Road followed in 2008 but the collapse and restructure of Virgin Records soon after left the band out on a limb and they became fully independent in early 2010. Being independent they regained full creative control and RJA’s sound and vision able to grow as intended. Since then it’s being done the Red Jumpsuit way, Am I The Enemy was released in 2011 and album number four, 4 in 2014. All charting, all pushing RJA’s message further around the world.
Known for their devout Christian beliefs, the bands spirituality flows through their lyrics which cover a lifetime worth of emotions. The darkness and the light, the struggles and the wins. The RJA message is ultimately one of hope and a reminder that 'Even on the worst day that you're alive you're still surrounded by so many awesome things that you should be grateful for, if you choose to look at them.’ Ronnie Winter
July 4th 2014 the band released their fourth full length record titled "4". This album was produced by Lee Miles (their pre record label producer) & Ronnie Winter, mixed by David Bendeth / Paul Lapinski, and mastered by Paul Lapinski. It features billboard charted singles "Right Direction", "California" and "It was You".

WHO IS DENS?
Entwining thoughtful verses and anthemic choruses, DENS (formerly "The Worship Collective") is an indie rock band that delivers music that invites the listener to be a part of the experience. They eloquently weave instrumentation with lyrical content focused on the themes of hope, redemption, and grace. This four-piece released its first EP in 2011, its second EP in 2013, a Lithuanian-exclusive EP in 2015, and a full length in 2016.
With their most recent release, “From Small Seeds Come Giant Trees”, they teamed up with producer Jase Belcher from Honest Studios and The Ember Days (Nashville). “Working with Jase really helped to mature the songs, both technically but also emotionally,” said lead singer Shaun Hypes. Bassist Josh Tomlinson added, “This record really achieved our goal of capturing the energy of our live performance.” No doubt this is also a testament to the work of mastering engineer Sam “Lightning” Moses (Kari Jobe, Haste the Day).
According to Brandon Osborne (drummer), “DENS exists to create music that points to the beauty of God and the truth of the Gospel.” Josh Waltman (guitarist) sums it up, “We believe in being real and serving others. We love the music, but we also love the people and the relationships.” For DENS, the music is an honest vehicle for the message, creativity, and relationships. They work with venues, conferences, and churches (two members are pastors) to create an energetic and engaging live performance.
