On Monday, December 16, BHi Music Group will celebrate the launch of their brand new artist development label with a showcase at Mercury Lounge that will premiere their fist two signings: blues-rock act Jon And The Jones and alt-rock trio AM Aesthetic. Both bands represent BHi’s first efforts, headed up by industry veteran Dick Wingate, to go above and beyond in order to support and nurture music talent.
We asked the bands about their signings, and they both seemed pretty stoked. “As a label, they’re our team in every sense. They’re hands-on, and are providing an environment where we have a chance to develop and grow internally and then help us get out there,” said Jon Moodie of Jon And The Jones. AM Aesthetic lead singer Rob Suchecki added, “The ratio of us coming to the office for meetings and coming to the office to hang out and get involved in whatever is happening that day are equal, and we couldn’t be happier about that.”
Jon And The Jones and AM Aesthetic premiered the official music videos for their debut singles (Firebreather and We Caught Fire, respectively) last month on Guitar World, and they are getting ready for the release of their full-length albums coming out early 2014. AM Aesthetic called the album their “most dynamic music” to date; and Jon and The Jones are so proud of their record that they had a hard time picking out the singles. “They each have their own flavor, shining a light on different facets of this one unit,” the Moodie said.
