UP-AND-COMING POWERHOUSE, HOPE VISTA
The East Coast's resident wild girl and power pop punk vocalist Hope Vista knows exactly how to spark a flame in listeners around the world. Bringing forth a splash of sass and playing a Fender Strat, Vista (also known as, HV) is steadily taking the music industry by storm on an uphill trajectory.
There Vista continuously proves that tenacity is the key to becoming a game-changing force to be reckoned with. At the tender age of 22, this story is just beginning. Her brand new iTunes-charting EP, "PREVAIL," completed at ZK Productions (All Time Low, Cartel, Against The Current, Mayday Parade) is a 5-song powerhouse, complete with both pulsing guitar solos and addictive pop hooks. Simply put, HV is nowhere near being finished; nobody can tell her story better than her. You're in for a wild ride.

AFTER OUR JULIET
An additional special thank you goes out to some talented guys formerly known as the band After Our Juliet, who so generously took time to record a special video about mental health and for supporting Superbands through its early days. The group has disbanded since then, but continue to make incredible music and we look forward to working with them again.
