Forged from garage jams and basement Youtube sessions, ”Across The Board” finally broke out of the internet box with their debut album ”Jane On Fire” last spring. A collection of rootsie rock and pop-rock beats, ”Jane On Fire” earned ATB critical acclaim for the single ”Indifference” which also became their first track to hit the FM radio waves and launch them to a number one spot on the Reverbnation charts in Canada for pop,rock as well as winning them an Akademia Music Award for best pop,rock,Americana song in 2016.

ATB’s EP, ”AMENDS”, is a concept album centered around the theme of facing one’s demons and resentments in order to break free of the restraints of past mistakes. The first single,”Don’t Drag Me Down” a fresh pop rock track with a nod to classic rock riffs offers listeners an upbeat addictive progressive beat, layered vocal harmonies and a sparing use of musical dynamics to keep the listener engaged to the very end. Featured on the International Women’s Day website, and having received an Akademia Music Award, ”Don’t Drag Me Down” is currently playing on US College Radio, internet and terrestrial FM radio in Canada and internationally including Australia, Brazil and Europe.

ATB was featured at Canadian Music Week in April of 2017, and tooured across Canada as part of the ”Artist On Board” with Via Rail last summer to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday.

Singer-Songwriter, Heather Whitney comes from an itty-bitty, one-red-light town deep in the pines of Southeast Texas, where the mosquitoes are big, but Heather’s love for music is bigger.

Heather’s new album, ”Moving on” is full of love, heartbreak, and moving on. This album is everything she has lived through, felt, and overcame, while in the studio. ”Just because you’re working towards your dreams, doesn’t mean that the world stops spinning, and hardships won’t find you,” says Heather. ”What gave me strength to complete my album, was knowing that I was not alone, and that someone else out there would hear these songs, relate to them, and possibly gain some healing like I did. We have to stick together.”

Heather spent the last year flying back and forth from Newton, TX to Nashville, TN, writing, hand-picking songs for the album, and recording with producer, Buddy Hyatt. She just wrapped and released her first music video for her single ”Shut Up And Dance” and her album ”Moving On” (Now available on ITunes).

”Everyone who was apart of this project was there because of their belief in me, and I’m forever humbled and thankful for them and this experience. Everything that I put into this album will absolutely translate to the listener. Hope y’all enjoy it.”

Heather Whitney is very excited that his music is being played on 752.2 Radio.

Deleo is the new indie-rock duo of the Montpellier scene. Has a multi-instrumentalist songwriter, Later, and a young talented singer, currently a student at the Sete Conservatory, Eleonore. From the meeting of these two passionate Anglo-Saxon musicians was born the evidence of an artistic fusion. Evidence confirmed listening to their first titles and their passages noticed on stage. These two are made to get along, and we, to listen to them. Eleanor’s aerial voice vibrates with sensuality on Del’s delicate guitars. He has kept his adolescent passions for the pillars of the new wave that are The Cure, U2 or Depeche Mode, the taste of dark melodies spiced with impulses pop rock formidable effective.

Over the years, his compositions have been enriched with eclectic and electric influences PJ Harvey, Archive, Mogwai, Placebo, Foals, Starsailor and many others.

But it is especially in the music of Radiohead that Deleo draws his inventiveness. Thom Yorke’s pieces are not only their source of inspiration. They are their breathing. A way of life, to play with the sounds of the purest and most fragile emotions. The most agile too.

It is therefore with generosity that this melancholic duo offers us today panoramic creative sounds of imaginary landscapes as vast as subtle. All performed in Deleo’s personal laboratory, a demanding and prolific group.

After their first single Game Lover to listen on the platforms, an EP of five titles chiseled and resolutely radiophonic will see the day soon.

One of the most promising musical discoveries of the moment.

DELEO is very excited that their music is being played on 752.2 Radio.
