#sxsw #Dignan


Listen to Golden Sun

Starting out as a garage band in South Texas, Dignan was formed by friends Andy Pena, and Devin Garcia who loved to play music, and loved the music they played. Dignan's sound has evolved into a powerful, dreamy, washy indie pop sound, with the help of David Palomo, and Charlie Vela. Though South Texas has never been a playground for artist spotlight, Dignan has made a national name for themselves through relentless DIY touring. Since Dignan's formation in 2007 they have been invited to SXSW 3 times, CMJ '09, Pygmalion Music Festival, Next Big Nashville twice, and have earned their place as "road warriors" playing over 700 tour dates nationwide. The band was recently invited to perform for which showcased them as Artist of the Day. Dignan has also been featured in several music magazines such as Paste, Under The Radar, Relevant, and Spin. In Texas, Dignan has been approached by booking agencies such as Windish Agency, Agency Group, Paradigm, and High Road to lend support to their touring artists such as Cursive, Twin Sister, Colour Revolt, Miniature Tigers, Cloud Nothings, Baths, Gobble Gobble, Max Bemis (Say Anything), Twin Shadow, Anathallo, Facing New York, and many more. In an industry where artists and fads come and go, Dignan has stood the test of time, and stayed true to a sound all their own. Starting to write and record for a "TBA" full length record, Dignan is excited to see what these next years have in store for them.
