Past Tense
Past Tense
Formerly a thrash/power metal tribute band, Past Tense began forging a new path for themselves with the addition of veteran vocalist Shannon Strobel. Gone were covers by their metal heroes, replaced by original songs steeped in classic metal tradition with a modern edge.

Led by Strobel's blistering vocal delivery, Past Tense goes right for the nether regions with the thundering rhythm section of Matt Noe (drums) and Banzai Ryan (BASS!). Rounding out the aural assault are Stony Garza and Rich Bates on guitar, whose melodic interplay evoke comparisons to powerhouse guitar duos like Tipton/Downing and Mustaine/Friedman. Past Tense has made a big impression on Lansing's metal scene.
Sierra Denae
Sierra Denae
Sierra Denae is an alternative rock singer and songwriter out of Lansing, Michigan. Though her background in music varies from a life of lessons, recitals, talent shows, musicals, and ensembles, she has an unexpectedly unique voice and style.
In July, 2014, Sierra Denae released the self performed, produced, and mastered EP “I Still Exist”. One reviewer says of her self-released EP “The raw and powerful vocals go perfectly with the rock music. This is a mix of driving rock, catchy melodies, and the lyrics are relatable, but not typical”.
In October 2015, Sierra Denae released a live performance video of the cut “Beautiful Mask” with the members of her amazing band. Each member of her band adds their own splash of talent to the mix.
Sierra Denae and her band have done shows (as headliner) for Frock The Loft at The Loft in Lansing, MI, and were a feature artist for Noah Guthrie, as well as the bands Alien Ant Farm, Kaleido, Stitched Up Heart and Failure Anthem.
On July 6th, 2016 Sierra Denae performed at Common Ground Music Festival in Lansing, MI. As the only female rock artist of the night, she opened for bands such as Heartsick, The Bouncing Souls, '68, Red Sun Rising, and Rise Against.
In addition to live shows with her band, she also performs solo acoustic sets with Michigan Chicks With Picks at various local venues. Sierra Denae’s goal is to take every opportunity to perform and share her music with the world.
