ARTIST SPOTLIGHT

Jared Mancuso  

JARED MANCUSO

Jared Mancuso is a Philly based artist and purveyor of the next wave of alternative rock. Originally from Bucks County, PA, Mancuso developed musical prowess on multiple instruments and honed his songwriting skills in college, where he met his first creative partner Jared Bardugone. Together the two formed Strike of The Heart and later The Jared Project, which released and nationally toured 2 full length albums that blended the pop punk and folk stylings of the latter Jared with the bluesy riff-rock inspirations of the former. 

Jared Mancuso’s solo ventures began in 2013 with his first album, A Very Pleasant Person.  Over the years he has circled in on his true sound: a mix of gritty blues and garage rock drawing from such inspiration as Weezer, The Black Keys, Jack White, and the Beach Boys.  His sophomore effort Superdope, entirely played and recorded by Mancuso himself, was released in 2016 to great acclaim, and garnered him an invite to the Launch Music Conference in Lancaster, PA 2 years in a row. 

Reviews for Superdope: 

“A damn near perfect album, top to bottom!” 

- JAMSPHERE MAGAZINE 

“If this don’t make you love Rock ‘n Roll again something is seriously wrong with you!” 

- MIDDLE TENNESSEE MUSIC 

“The melting pot of sounds has set the standard for the fun that rock ‘n roll can be again.” 

- INDIE BAND GURU 

Mancuso’s 3rd album, Hype!, is due out late summer 2018 and has already been receiving ovations and praise in performances with this live band, the Very Pleasant People, across the Eastern Seaboard. Jared Mancuso’s signature slicked back pompadour and perfectly tailored suits evoke a Don Draper meets James Dean vibe and, when juxtaposed with soaring choruses, infectiously intricate guitar riffs, and thought provoking lyrics, manages to build a sexy sonic tension that packs a punch both live and on the record.

NOMAD CHAD  

NOMAD CHAD

Los Angeles, CA - Rising hip-hop musician, artist and Chicago native Nomad Chad releases his debut album the Skinny Hendrix Experience on August 31 through Monolog Records. The album follows the two recent online successes of singles Gucci and For Life (feat. TOMMY), yielding a collective quarter-million views within the first few weeks. The album is written by Nomad Chad and produced by Monolog Records founder, Dr. Jones. 

The first single “Gucci” was released in the spring of 2018 followed by second single “For Life” in June. “Both tracks have already gained attention of his peers at bigger labels,” notes Monolog Recordsfounder, Dr. Jones, “so we are already looking toward collaborations during the promotion of the LP.”  

Nomad Chad’s “For Life” single is a very personal catharsis inspired by a time in his life when in cinematic fashion, a new love saved him from the impending incarceration or death- ultimately inspiring everything he is today. The overall themes of the album are very much in the same vein to the single “For Life” as it takes the listener on a journey of being one’s best self while maintaining integrity. The title, “Skinny Hendrix Experience” is a reference to Nomad Chad’s eclectic personal style and how the album aspires to be an en-masse artistic piece meaning to be consumed as a single-work versus the disparate single-to-single trend currently pervading hip-hop top 40. 

Nomad Chad’s musical background includes singing in choir as a child to then learning how to play guitar and piano and eventually discovering his talent for rapping. The Chicago West-Side native honed his craft for more than a decade before being discovered by Monolog Records.

Rockland County NY based artist Marcus Charles is a man of many talents. Besides writing raps, he also plays the roles of producer and sound engineer. After dropping his self produced mix tape 'On A Hill, In The Trees' late last year, he is now back with new material. His first release for the year is the music video for his single "Action" which is an upbeat, energetic cut that puts the young emcee in his element.
