With a sound echoing The Smiths, Arctic Monkeys and Royal Blood, Island Dam pump out hook-driven melodies underscored by high energy alternative rock. Lyrical themes range from social media narcissism to modern political discourse to the importance of real life connections in the information age. Eager to explore coming-of-age introspections, Dam's lyrical delivery can often mirror a stream-of-consciousness style.

Born in Tulsa Oklahoma, raised in Paris, France, and now based in New York City, JW Francis brings a warm, affable vibe to frigid New York. The 25 year old songwriter writes groovy midnight ballads for people, to people, whether crooning about his love for his best friend (“Joe Fusco”) or telling jokes between songs at one of his live shows. After putting in his time supporting other artists—running a music magazine, Rare Candy, and a recording studio, CU Records—Francis set off to make art of his own, imprinted with this love for others.
