Black Guy Fawkes
Black Guy Fawkes
Ian Robinson AKA "Black Guy Fawkes" is a 22 year old singer/songwriter and guitarist from Baltimore Maryland. Using the catchy punk hooks from Green Day, the theatrics of My Chemical Romance and the straight forward heartfelt lyrics of Frank Turner, Black Guy Fawkes makes music that is intimate yet theatrical. "I wanted to write music that reflected my life growing up as well as make something intimate enough for a big crowd but big enough for a smaller crowd at the same time." His music inspires people to know that there is a better tomorrow and promote self aware.

After the disbandment of his former band Dime Store Poets, Ian focused more on songwriting and continuing forward in his music career. After playing shows by his real name, Ian felt a pseudonym would work better to describe what he wanted his music to showcase. Thus, Black Guy Fawkes was born. "What started out as a joke name between friends ended up becoming my stage name. The way Guy Fawkes was the voice for the people of London and political protests, I wanted to be the voice for those who cannot stand up for themselves on a physical and mental level"


Black Guy Fawkes has recently released demos on his soundcloud page for his tracks "It's Not Me, It's The Beer", "Drop Dead Hero" and others. He is currently at work on his first acoustic EP entitled "Three-Fifths of November" ,which will be available on his Bandcamp, and his debut full-length CD.
The Milestones
The Milestones
Rock music gets compartmentalized a lot. Punk, Indie, Classic, Grunge – some bands define one particular genre and others are able to mix and mingle the differing characteristics of each. The Milestones give us music that meshes the best qualities of each genre and provide us with solid rock sounds that doesn’t need it’s own specific category. They’re a little bit in-your-face like punk, they’re a little growly like grunge, and they get you moving like indie-dance rock.

The Milestones are a quartet based out of Baltimore, Maryland and got their start in 2014 playing around the local scene. Their EP, Old Souls, was released that same year. They released their sophomore EP, Honey, this year.
