The Ready Set
Starting in 2007, Indiana teenager Jordan Witzigreuter began retreating to his parent's basement to record songs that straddled the border between melodic emo-pop and bubbly electronica. Although he adopted a name for the project -- the Ready Set -- Witzigreuter took a solo approach to the songs, which he recorded and performed entirely by himself.
Colorado-based electro/screamo duo Breathe Carolina formed in 2006 around the talents of Kyle Even and David Schmitt. The Denver group's blend of synth-based beats and melodic screaming first appeared on the public radar in 2007 with the self-released Gossip EP. It was followed in 2008 by the band's first full-length for Rise Records, It's Classy, Not Classic, which featured all of the tracks that appeared on Gossip with six new additional songs. The duo has toured relentlessly, sharing the stage with contemporaries such as the Secret Handshake, Millionaires, and Brokencyde.
