The 3300 + Climbing crew has been hard at work developing the career of our second artist, Stephanie Berlanga. But with the month of January coming to a close, we thought we’d check in with our first artist, January May (see what I did there? Ok ok…). We have been closely following what has been happening with KG, Matt, and Adam, and the successes they have had since becoming 3300 alumni.
Since coming to the end of working with 3300, January May have been hard at work continuing to create buzz for themselves. In February of last year, the band was a winner of Belk department stores, Southern Musician Showcase. As part of the deal with Belk, the band played showcases all over the country and even went on a full summer tour; all sponsored by the North Carolina based department store.
Along with touring through the summer, January May have played festivals such as, Red River Revel in Shreveport, Louisiana. They even had their first live television performance on Fox 2 St. Louis, in late December of last year. During this appearance, the band interviewed with the morning crew and performed their single “Geraldine,” which they had previously made available for free to fans.
Recently, January May teamed up with socially conscious filmmakers, Project Thirty Six. January May’s new single, “Ropes” was written for, and will be featured in the company’s latest short film called “Special Flavor,” released on February 5th.
Currently, January May is touring in and around their home state of Texas. Along with touring, the band has been teasing fans with photos and posts from the studio, hinting at a new album (fingers crossed). The band will also be making their return to Orlando the weekend of April 30th, to play at Moonstone Music Festival.
As you can see, January May has been hard at work continuing to build upon the work of 3300 + Climbing, and there is no shortage of talent among KG, Matt, and Adam. We’re glad to see January May doing such great things, and we cannot wait to see what they have next for the music industry.
