Jesse Malin
Jesse Malin
Born in Queens, New York, Jesse Malin's passion for music began at an early age. Upon receiving his first nylon stringed acoustic guitar, Jesse taped an old 1950's reel-to-reel recorder with a beat-up attached microphone to its body and the soon-to-be songwriter began his musical career…

Malin began playing live the age of twelve years old in the seminal hardcore band Heart Attack, releasing the first NYC hardcore seven inch, God Is Dead, on Damaged Goods Records. Before he turned fourteen, Jesse continued to tour North America with Heart Attack and released two more records with the band. Upon the group's disbandment in 1984, Malin spent time as a gas station attendant, a health food store clerk and eventually found a home as a "man with a van," working with everyone from Barbara Streisand to The Swans. In the early 1990's, Jesse and his childhood pals formed the rock and roll band D Generation and released three albums, touring the globe several times over before parting ways in 1999.

After several in-between bridge bands, including PCP Highway and Bellvue, Jesse Malin found himself without a record deal and playing small clubs again. Having been offered a lump sum of money by a slumlord to leave his rent-controlled apartment across the street from Hells Angels headquarters, known as the safest block in New York City, he saw this as an opportunity. The offer was taken which provided the capital to pay off his debts (so he could walk down the other not-so-safe streets) with just enough left over for six days at Loho Studios where Malin recorded his critically acclaimed solo debut, The Fine Art of Self Destruction. Produced by long time friend Ryan Adams, The Fine Art was released in 2002 on One Little Indian / Artemis Records. Back on the road again, this time as a solo artist, Malin was touring more than ever before, finding himself in theatres, festivals and parts of the world he had never imagined. Upon returning to New York Malin recorded his self-produced second album, The Heat (2004), which received 5 stars in Uncut, followed by Glitter in the Gutter, which was released in 2007 on Green Day's Adeline Records and included "Broken Radio," a duet with Bruce Springsteen.

Malin's other projects have included On Your Sleeve, a covers record featuring a schizophrenic mix of his favorite songs including everything from Elton John to the The Kills and Jim Croce to The Hold Steady, The Finger (We Are Fuck You) with Ryan Adams, Johnny T, and Colin Burns and the Rodeo Queens, a side project with Green Day formed very, very late at night. Jesse was also the music supervisor on Burning Down The House: The Story of CBGB, directed by Many Stein, and recently reconnected with Stein as an associate producer on 2012's Bad Brains: Band in DC, co-directed by Stein and Ben Logan.

In 2010 Jesse and The St. Marks Social and released Love it To Life, produced by Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Lucero, Flogging Molly) for SideOneDummy Records, which was referred to as "the best album of his career," by Paste Magazine. After two years of relentless touring, Malin is back home in NYC writing songs for a new solo album and a new D Generation record. He also and hosts a monthly radio show on Sirius's Spectrum with John Varvatos entitled "New York Nights."
Joe Sib
Joe Sib
Joe Sib is a man who wears many hats and doesn’t like to sleep. In the early 90’s he spent his time touring the country as the front man of the punk band, WAX (ever see the Spike Jonze video with the guy on fire? That was WAX!) Sib’s credits also include co-owning the independent label, Side One Dummy Records (The Gaslight Anthem, Flogging Molly, Gogol Bordello), and hosting the radio show “Complete Control”-- which airs in seven cities across the country, including Los Angeles’ 98.7FM. In October of 2009 Sib wrote and began performing his one man show California Calling. “California Calling: A Story of Growing Up Punk Rock is a 70-minute ‘broken word’ roller coaster ride delivered by a man with enough energy and passion to power an entire city” Los Angeles Times said of the show. “Sib‘s boundless earnestness about the identity-shaping possibility of music charged his part-memoir, part-comedy, part- backyard-barbecue-yarn about what happens when the old days never quite go away...The abiding take from California Calling is that the rush of youthful discovery doesn‘t have to dissipate with adult life.”

When not on the road doing “California Calling” you can catch Joe performing his unique take on stand up comedy all over the universe.
The Fleeting Ends
The Fleeting Ends
The Fleeting Ends are a group of Philadelphia native musicians that have formed and reclaimed the name with original lead singer/guitarist/songwriter Matt Vantine, along with new members Lauren Davish (vocals, percussion), Dan Mullally (drums), Dino Petaccio (keys), and Tim Ferguson (bass).

The new combination of members, including added instruments like the keyboard and tambourine, has set the foundation to revisit and even surpass some of the success that The Fleeting Ends achieved in the past, like playing Philadelphia’s XPonential Festival, opening for acts such as Bob Dylan, My Morning Jacket, and Wilco, and receiving rave reviews from MAGNET, NPR, and MSN Music.
