No Room was born in Palma de Mallorca in 2014 by the initiative of the Majorcan musician Nacho Valestrini. After several years acting as singer-songwriter, he decided to take the step to create a band which members currently are Juan Calafell playing drums, Tomeu Mir as a bass player, Fausto Morell and Enric Hernaiz at the guitars, Neus Margarit playing the violin, keys and percussions, and Nacho as a lead vocals and guitar.
They released their first EP titled “Hey, Silver!” in the studio Can Puc Produccions (Palma de Mallorca) in 2015 and the band started rolling through different concert halls and festivals of the island like the Summer Pie (Pecan Pie) and the Melon Fest.
Nowadays they are still working on the process of creating his first LP, which is going to be recorded during this year.

The Wheels is a young psychedelic pop band from a small Mediterranean island. Their first album ‘Born To Fly’ garned unanimous acclaim from the media. Their next album ‘The Year Of The Monkey’ was produced by the renowned Paco Loco who has already claimed the band as one of his favourites and sees an extremely promising future for them. Packed with hypnotizing melodies and atmosphere their songs manifest their creative songwriting. They bring a nostalgic flash of sounds of the 60s but with a fresh energy that encapsulates the new wave of psychedelia

Toni Monserrat Inc. has shared stage with artists such as Graham Parker and Brinsley Schwarz, Dan Stuart (from Green On Red), Sid Griffin (Long Ryders). And also with his close friends Jason Ringenberg and Tim Easton (both guest artists on TM Inc. debut album: 38 Bucks). After two bands and two decades of songs, ’38 Bucks’ (Desert Dog Records, 2014) was the first solo release of singer-songwriter Toni Monserrat, who is now in the process of recording his second album. His debut album was defined as ‘a musical self portrait of the troubles and hopes of the 21st century individual’. A bit closer to silvery Americana than to his previous southern and punk western previous cult bands, in this project electric guitars have been left in the cases to give the whole recording an all-time natural sound, and to let songs breathe and speak by themselves. Stories about happy and unhappy breakups, hope, wicked characters and a lot of irony blend into a work that comes from the heart. 38 Bucks guests include the above mentioned Jason Ringenberg and Tim Easton, together with Canadian The Minnikins, and has been praised by musicians such as Sid Griffin or Willy Vlautin (Richmond Fontaine).
Artists that have covered their songs: Tim Easton, Dropkick or Danny Wilson.

Great songs, overwhelming live performances and international band projection is the most accurate definition for Son and the Holy Ghosts. Their passion about music led them to be firmly considered as one of the most representative bands in Majorca, playing sold out in every record presentation. They also have the ability to mutate and reinvent themselves by reducing members in acoustic sets without losing perspective about the quality of their music.
Featuring Guillem “Son” Mesquida on vocals and guitar, Xesc Carbonell on guitars, Juan Grimalt on guitars, pedal and lap steel, Josep Verdera on drums, Moncho Martín on keys and Quique Perez on bass, the six member band based in Palma has all it takes for you to enjoy great pieces of music.
Son and The Holy Ghost originally started back in 2009, when the band leader Guillem Mesquida, the “Son”, decided to follow his recently deceased father’s steps. Biel Mesquida was a well-known musician in Catalonia, leader of the band Ossifar, with a huge background in the music industry. Son decided to honor him by making “Son and the Holy Ghosts” a reality. The result was an album called “Lyrics and Songs” (Blau) pouring lyrical honesty in every corner by exposing his fears and joys at the same level, all tangled up in Americana sound.
The second album was released in 2013, named “The Solider and LadyFire” (Blau DiscMedi, Warner Chappell). It had clearly much more light in it than the previous one. The stunning design in digipack included a documentary, where the members passionately talk about their hopes and their particular vision about Spanish indie scene, mixed with their live performance recorded at Alaró’s Theater, directed by Mateu Moll.
Their last album “1995” was released in January 2016. “1995” is the result of the natural evolution of the band, of many years playing live in clubs and arenas around Spain and it brings a blend of pure pop & rock. Recorded at Urban Studios in Palma and produced by Rafa Rigo, the band overpasses the expectations by exclusively publishing in vinyl.
Son and the Holy Ghosts has opened for many international bands like Cuff the Duke, Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou, Rayland Baxter, The Duke and the King, Danny and the Champions of the World or Steven Smyth and the Outlaws. They have been also invited to participate in many festivals in Majorca and eventually performed as Spanish band and studio recording musicians for Eamon McGrath and Julie Doiron.

ZEST is an alternative rock band where the melodies and rhythmic foundations are the protagonists. Our influences are very varied and do not belong to a particular style. Our references range from classic rock and pop with Anglo-Saxon roots, alternative folk, contemporary alternative rock, blues roots and soul sometimes. For us the main thing is to work for the song as a whole.
ZEST was born in 2015 from the desire to explore musical fields on a personal level, the enthusiasm of Gorka Vich (Voice and Guitar) and Jaume Tugores (Guitar) to creatively express their own material was strengthened after the union of Pedro Moya (Drums) and Manel Barjacoba (Bass) who contributed their strength at the compositional level and gave rise to the first stage of ZEST. Despite being a new band, although composed of musicians with many filming and years of experience playing, the first year of the formation was very moved, participating in some local festivals, supporting several national and international groups and recording their first live demo with Sergio Ruiz (Tacosanto).
In 2016 they record their first videos, four songs in “Live Session” in Diorama Sound studios with Toni Salvá. Enric Hernaiz (Bass), who has finished closing the circle of the band in both composite and direct level, becomes part of the family in the place of Manel.
At the moment, the group enjoys its consolidated formation and it is being explored in all its creative lands giving life to new songs soon to be able to record a work of more weight and that shows the personality of ZEST. Until that moment arrives you can enjoy its essence watching them rock live, which is where they have a better time.

SALVATGE COR are a Majorcan four-piece band founded in 2013 by Llorenç Romera Pericàs (guitar, vocals), under the motto «bedroom pop & living word». Gabriel Abrines (guitar), Ferran Bellver (drums) and Leonardo Prieto (bass) complete the line-up.
With a penchant for printed poetry and urban life, the ideals and songs of SALVATGE COR delve on the immediacy between musicians and audience, and the exploration of topics such as identity, alterity and intertextuality among the different arts. According to Tomeu Canyelles (40putes magazine), they mix «in a very personal way musical and literary influences that range from Television to The Libertines and from Rimbaud to Emily Dickinson.»
L’U (Runaway Records, 2015), their debut release, was recorded, mixed and mastered by David Pringuer (THE MIGHTY ROARS) at Sa Moana Studio, Sóller (Majorca), during Easter 2015. Virgínia Garau designed the artwork of this six-track EP, which includes five songs (Polsina de cascall, Miss Lonely, Jaculatòria, Salva’m ara del demà and El poema més salvatge), and a spoken word experiment (Oh Endemai), which pays homage to the beginning to PATTI SMITH’s Horses.
As well as having played as a support act for MISHIMA and EL PETIT DE CAL ERIL, they participated in Summer Pie Festival (along with RAYLAND BAXTER, THE ROSSELLYS and EAMON MCGRATH) and MONDO SONORO’s Fiestas Demoscópicas in 2016. That very same year, they won the ART JOVE Contemporary Music Award, becoming one of the new sensations in the Catalan-speaking scene. Currently, the band is finishing their first LP, to be released this 2017.
