“In the time of the Soundcloud rapper, the idea of coming together to form a band seems like an idea from a totally different era, even though it literally was an idea first thought of in a different era. But besides the point, enter Mac Saturn and a truly original ensemble.

Echoing the beats first put forward by giants such as The Doors, the magic comes from a collaboration between lead vocalist and rhythm guitar player, Nick Barone, drummer, and vocalist, Carson Macc, Jive Chmielewski on bass, and last but certainly not least, back-up vocalist, and lead guitar player, Brett Dooge.

Together the four friends have been able to create a sound that is so much more than what you would find from a simple garage band, instead, they bring back the sounds from the golden age of Rock and Roll.” – John Bozick, Detroitisit

“The Almost emerged in the late 2000s as the emo-driven alt-rock solo project of Aaron Gillespie, former drummer and occasional lead singer for Underoath, the Christian metalcore outfit he co-founded in 1998. While 2007’s Southern Weather was by and large a Gillespie solo affair, the Almost morphed into a legitimate band over subsequent releases, resulting in the more collaborative sound heard on Monster Monster and 2013’s Fear Inside Our Bones. Following a band hiatus, the Almost resumed worked in 2019 with their fourth outing, Fear Caller.” – AllMusic.com Biography

“With hitmaker Irv Gotti at the helm, Ashanti blasted into the urban music scene in 2002, topping the charts with multiple singles at once. She quickly became a sensation, gracing the covers of magazines and dominating urban radio. Ashanti built her reputation with duets, where she would complement an already popular rapper — Ja Rule (“Always on Time”), Fat Joe (“What’s Luv?”), the Notorious B.I.G. (“Unfoolish”) — contrasting the tough-guy male perspective with her own. It didn’t take the young vocalist long to make a name for herself though: her debut album topped the Billboard album chart just as her debut solo single, “Foolish,” was topping the Hot 100 chart. Her presence was inescapable.” – AllMusic.com Biography
