About Fitz and the Tantrums
Los Angeles-based Fitz and the Tantrums have quickly grown from independent upstarts to bonafide hitmakers. Their current album, titled “Fitz and the Tantrums” (Elektra), features their biggest hit to date “HandClap.” The RIAA-certified Double Platinum single went top 5 on both the Hot AC and Alternative Radio charts. The band has brought the infectious energy of their live shows to the small screen, with nationally televised performances on ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars,” “Good Morning America,” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” NBC’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “America’s Got Talent,” and Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and the syndicated “Ellen DeGeneres Show” among others.
Fitz and the Tantrums’ eponymous album follows their breakout major label debut, 2013’s “More Than Just A Dream,” which featured back-to-back #1 Alternative Radio singles of the RIAA-certified Platinum “The Walker” and the RIAA-certified Platinum “Out Of My League.” The band has performed countless, sold out headlining shows and is always a standout at music festivals around the world, including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza N and S America and more.
About Moon Taxi
“We can come together, we won’t give up on the fight,” sings Nashville’s Moon Taxi on their smash single “Two High,” a song that catapulted them to the top of the streaming charts and the forefront of the national stage. Filled with emotive vocals, a percussive beat and some unexpected, infectious horns, it’s a track that shows the band – which has been together for over a decade – venturing into more adventuresome territory than ever. Fearlessly melding rock with pop hooks, clever synths and roots touchstones gleaned from their home in Music City, Moon Taxi’s forthcoming fifth record and first for RCA will find the five-piece doing what they do best: coming together and fighting for music that triumphs above all.
“Two High,” the band’s newest single, has been taking Moon Taxi – Trevor Terndrup (vocals, guitarist), Spencer Thomson (lead guitarist and producer), Wes Bailey (keyboardist), Tommy Putnam (bassist) and Tyler Ritter (drummer) – to new heights, topping over 60 million streams on Spotify and making heavy rotation on SiriusXM. Written in response to the push for peace, but not reacting to the politics, of the Women’s March this past January, it’s a song that encourages listeners to keep looking for a positive way forward – from their own internal battles, to the ones suffered by the world at large.
It’s perhaps due to Moon Taxi’s inspired, inclusive worldview when it comes to their music that they’ve been able to have songs featured as the soundtrack to multiple commercial and TV placements – from “Nashville,” MLB, NFL to HBO Sports – but it’s their infectious live performances that keep fans coming back night after night. Touring for the better part of the decade, they’re the kind of band that inspires a loyal following willing to drive miles and miles (or fly many more) to catch them again and again.
“If there’s one thing we want when people hear this record or see our shows,” says Terndrup, “it’s to leave elated.”
