Hetz
H E T Z's electro-pop sound blends guitar riffs with dance tracks and is hell-bent on bringing 808s back to their glory days. Originally from Philly, he describes himself as a basement stoner who fell in love with pop ballads.
Frank Ryan
Frank Ryan
Frank Ryan was born & raised in Dublin, Ireland.
Brought up on a wide range of music from The Beatles & Bob Dylan, to Al Green and Stevie Wonder, he was inspired to pick up the guitar. By his mid teens, he was performing all over Dublin’s notorious bar scene. Finishing off his formative years working as a session musician in London, England, he then set off for America.

After working in New York, with such acclaimed producers & musicians as Steve Jordan & others, he began to explore America, on a Kerouac-like journey, finding his voice as he moved through bars, clubs, and roadhouses.

He has since ventured West to Los Angeles, where he continues to craft his songs celebrating love fueled escapisim. Evident influences range from The Doors & Jeff Buckley, to Jimi Hendrix & Otis Rush. Through blending the blues & soul of his life with subtle homage to his musical heroes, he has crafted a sound that is all his own
