Pressing Strings
Pressing Strings
Pressing Strings is an American musical trio based out of Maryland’s capital city Annapolis . The music has elements of Folk, Rock, Soul, Blues but is not defined by any of these genres. It is the ongoing project of lead singer/songwriter Jordan Sokel, who formed the band in 2007 and wrote around a changing cast of musicians until he landed firmly with bassist Nick Welker and drummer Brandon Bartlett. As a trio the band continues to develop a sound that is uniquely theirs, yet vaguely familiar of many classic musical acts spanning decades and styles from the 60’s to present day. It is organic, and groovy, with a strong sense of beauty and lyricism that carries the music.
Hungry On Monday
Hungry On Monday
HUNGRY ON MONDAY IS AN ALTERNATIVE POP-ROCK GROUP CURRENTLY BASED IN NORTHERN VIRGINIA.

FORMED IN 2015 AS A SIDE PROJECT AMONG CHILDHOOD FRIENDS, FOUNDING MEMBERS NOAH PONCIN, AIDAN BRUECKEN AND NATHAN DAHLMAN QUICKLY REALIZED THAT THEY HAD POTENTIAL TO BECOME MUCH MORE THAN A LOCAL GARAGE BAND.

AS MOMENTUM BEGAN TO PICK UP IN OCTOBER OF 2016, THE TRIO RECRUITED LONG-TIME FRIEND MICHAEL PRESTON TO PLAY BASS GUITAR. NOT LONG AFTER THAT THEY HIT THE STUDIO. THEIR DEBUT SELF-TITLED EP, RECORDED AT M80 STUDIO IN THEIR HOMETOWN OF PURCELLVILLE, VIRGINIA, RECEIVED MASSIVE PRAISE FOR ITS INTRICATE BLEND OF ROCK, JAZZ, POP, ALTERNATIVE, AND FUNK.

AFTER ITS RELEASE, THE BAND STARTED TO PLAY NON-STOP IN THE WASHINGTON, D.C. METROPOLITAN AREA. DURING THE WINTER OF 2016, THEY ADDED PIANIST TED GALLEGOS TO THE BAND AS A SURPRISE FOR SEVERAL SHOWS IN THEIR HOMETOWN. WITH THE ADDITION OF GALLEGOS THEIR SOUND WAS ELEVATED TO EVEN GREATER HEIGHTS AND GALLEGOS BECAME A PERMANENT ADDITION TO THE HUNGRY ON MONDAY FAMILY.

IN MAY OF 2017, THE BAND SET OUT TO WRITE AND RECORD THEIR SECOND PROJECT. WITH THEIR OWN MEMBERS MICHAEL PRESTON, NOAH PONCIN, AND AIDAN BRUECKEN SPEARHEADING THE PRODUCTION, THEY WERE DETERMINED TO CREATE A RECORD THAT WAS TRULY UNIQUE. DURING THIS TIME, TRAGEDY STRUCK WITH THE UNEXPECTED AND SUDDEN PASSING OF THEIR PRODUCER, MENTOR, AND DEAR FRIEND. EVER DETERMINED, THE GROUP SPENT COUNTLESS DAYS AND NIGHTS WRITING AND RECORDING A HEARTFELT TRIBUTE TO THEIR FRIEND AND COMPLETING THE EP, HIDEAWAY, IN HIS MEMORY.
