Something happens when Badflower singer and guitarist Josh Katz steps up to the microphone. His primal, powerful, and passionate transformation is the most unmitigated kind of catharsis fueled by emotion and unfiltered intensity…
“The superhero version of myself comes out in the songs,” he affirms. “When I’m writing or performing, I go to this place that reflects the most emotional point I’ve hit at the moment. A lot of what’s being written is anger, lust, heartbreak, and all of that. Becoming an artist, I flip into this character I can’t shake or get rid of. I embrace it and keep writing in that direction.”
This approach stands out as Badflower’s calling card. It’s also a big reason why the group quietly became one of L.A.’s most buzzed-about rock ‘n’ roll bands. Since their emergence in 2014, the band—Josh, Joe Morrow [lead guitar, backing vocals], Alex Espiritu [bass], and Anthony Sonetti [drums]—has shared stages with the likes of KONGOS and The Veronicas, earned acclaim from OC Weekly, Loudwire, and more, and achieved a two-week run at #1 on KROQ’s Locals Only Show with “Heroin.” During 2016, fashion icon John Varvatos personally signed the band to John Varvatos Records. Little did he know, they had a big surprise up their sleeves.
“We actually had already started making a record without telling anybody,” smiles Josh. “After the deal was done, we were like, ‘How about this?’”
The boys cut the 2016 Temper EP [John Varvatos Records/Republic Records] in the garage of the Thousand Oaks, CA home which they share. Recorded during a blazing hot California summer, the sessions got so intense that their MacBook Pro often needed to cool down in the freezer. Wielding that energy, the music taps into a gritty and grunge-y gutter rock spirit complemented by jarring theatrical delivery and unshakable riffing, equally informed by Led Zeppelin and nineties Seattle as it is by film composers such as James Horner.
In 2017 the band signed a new deal with Scott Borchetta’s Big Machine Records as a joint venture with Varvatos Records. Their debut album will be released later this year.
Creating The Scene
Creating the Scene is an indie-pop band making waves in the youth music scene. CTS is Jake Walters, 18 (Vocals, Keyboard, Guitar), Austin Kent, 19 (Guitar and Vocals), Jace Hampton, 15 (Drums), and Nic Fricke, 14 (bass). The bands music is driven by strong drum beats, hypnotic piano melodies, and emotional lyrics and vocals. The band was created in December 2011 and since then has undergone some changes, leaving them as they are today.
Creating the Scene has begun to establish a reputation here in Tucson, AZ. They've played the popular night club, The Rock, numerous times. They've also played benefits, including church services, and cancer benefits, like the Rockin' For The Cure concert, hosted by Kirk Faegan, and even in Tucson's Best Concert Series: Indie Edition at The Rialto Theatre.
Also, Creating the Scene has taken 3rd place at Battle Tucson, at Club Congress.

Creating The Scene is currently working on their debut album.
