Who: Riffed-out rockers originally from tiny Wilbraham, Massachusetts.

Sound: Big, shout-along choruses and bluesy guitar breakdowns. Singer Brendan Cooney grew up on Nineties rock, but gravitated toward legends like Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan. "We write with classic song structures in mind," he says. "Not a lot of bands are epic anymore."

Young Band Blues: The Gallery once hired a manager who booked them on a tour – for no pay. "We survived on merchandise," says Cooney. "But that's where all our opportunities came from."
