Oh He Dead came to life in Washington D.C. in the summer of 2015 when Johnson and Valenti met serendipitously on H street. After finding their musical match in one another, they quickly collected some of the best musicians in Washington, DC, and formed Oh He Dead.
Perhaps best described as “rock and soul,” Oh He Dead mixes in healthy doses of classic R&B vibes, funk, and folk with deliciously addictive songwriting. Led by the stirring harmonies of Cynthia Johnson and Andy Valenti, Oh He Dead mixes Motown influences with poignant lyrics to move both your soul and your feet.
Soldiers of Suburbia is an Alternative/Indie two-piece hailing from Haymarket, VA. Known for their high-energy, high-octane performances, Tyler Plazio and John Brooks put on a show unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Soldiers of Suburbia’s debut EP, “Eating Cigarettes”, is available everywhere now.
