Newquist created a band called Caroline's Spine. American alt-rock band started in southern California. Born out of the post-grunge scene, Caroline's Spine first gained worldwide attention with their recording of Newquist’s epic song, ”Sullivan" - the true story of five brothers lost at sea during WWII. Concert tours throughout the US & Europe, with acts including Aerosmith and KISS, refined their "astonishing and heartfelt" performances. Social media has given fans a more interactive experience through access to private events & limited exclusives. Caroline's Spine has landed four Top40 Rock radio hits mixing a melodic acoustic sound with "shiny, singable rock hooks that set it apart...akin to Live and Pearl Jam." - Billboard. 

Back in the studio with over half a million records sold, Caroline's Spine is currently producing a new project entitled "Stranger Angel.”

DICKIE veteran tunesmith Dick Prall, has created a collection of dark, gorgeous, and oft-times moony sing-alongs on his fifth full-length release. Now brandishing the childhood moniker his recently-passed mother had given him, the self-titled record comes in like a bellowing newborn, but settles into a pace of dynamic ebb and flow as it ages and ends with a Roy Orbison-styled recount of hopeful love that never bleeds into the saccharine.

The DICKIE album is a touching snapshot of Prall’s most recent personal experiences. Emphasized with surgical beauty by string arrangements Prall and co-producer Tim King, the ten intimate songs are tied together by a narrative that leaves a compassionate mark on the hearts of its listeners.
