Dent May - self-described hotel bar lounge singer and aspiring daytime TV talk show host - has been charming his way into the hearts of music fans since the release of his debut album The Good Feeling Music of Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele on Animal Collective’s Paw Tracks label in 2009. The Mississippi-born, Los Angeles-based songwriter, performer, and Dolly Parton enthusiast has since released two more acclaimed records, Do Things (2012) and Warm Blanket (2013), dropped the holiday smash “I’ll Be Stoned For Christmas”, and played hundreds of shows from Shanghai to Chicago. His latest album, Across the Multiverse, is an interstellar voyage of mythic proportions.
Bonus is the recording project of Oxford, Mississppi's Kieran Danielson, a Mississippi native originally from the coast. Since moving to Oxford for school in 2011, Danielson has found himself embedded in the close-knit music scene of Oxford, playing in a a number of bands over the last couple of years (NERVS, Pale East, Moral Guest). As Bonus, Danielson creates bedroom-spun melancolic folk pop.

In the summer of 2015, Danielson recorded Bonus I, which was subsequently released on a small cassette label based in New Orleans. Since then, Bonus has opened for bands like Alex G, Julien Baker, Mitski, Elvis Depressedly and more. In an effort to step away from the isolation of recording alone in his bedroom, II was recorded with friend and bandmate Adam Porter (Guitar), at his house in Oxford. II is set to be the first release on Muscle Beach Records, a newly formed label started by Danielson, Porter and another friend, due June 10th.
