hey, we’re young rising sons and we’re from brooklyn, ny.
since 2010, when we decided to start a band in steve’s parents’ basement, highs and lows have been our mantra (somewhat literally).
we’ve been played on the radio, signed a major record deal, then dropped from said major label, toured the us, canada, and the uk where we played some cool festivals, a lot of sold-out shows, and also some shows to a crowd of 5 people including the bar staff (perhaps this is why you’re not supposed to write your own bio, but unapologetic honesty is kind of our thing).
our band is about embracing the journey, valuing the perspective we get from the lows, while soaking in the highs. the growing pains, the ebb & flow, and the unpredictability of life is what defines us as humans, and we’ve been able to experience all of it together as best friends. that’s what we like to write songs about.
we’re young rising sons, and we’re a band from brooklyn.

44Blonde, born Ethan Redick, spent his childhood in St. Louis flipping through record
crates listening to Otis Redding, Gregg Allman, and Tom Petty. These early Rock N Roll
legends and southern culture were a huge influence as he began releasing music in
early 2021. Since then, Redick has moved across the country to Los Angeles and has
released more than a half dozen singles amassing thousands of fans including the likes
of now mentor, writer/producer/artist Lil Aaron. (Blackbear, Kim Petras, Demi Lovato).
Since the move and collaborative signing to Lil Aaron and Gabe Saporta (Midtown,
Cobra Starship), 44Blonde has begun to release his debut project while also touring the
country as direct support to Sueco. His debut album, an ode to his personal struggles
with addiction, is called Rehab Runaway. Ethan shares, “If I can help even one of you
feel like you are not as alone as I’ve felt through many long nights, then I am happy I
put these songs out.”
Diva Bleach is a sparkly pop-rock band consisting of Sydney Roten (vocals/bass) and Brie Ritter (guitar) from Phoenix, AZ. Wearing their hearts on their sleeves, the girls share stories of heartbreak, friendship and more through their songs with diary-like honesty. The duo met while taking music lessons at the same school and quickly became good friends. This led to them creating Diva Bleach as an outlet to express themselves.
