Artist of the Month for June 2023


The Surfaces are a boy band with groovy surfable hit songs that we can’t get enough of. Forrest Frank and Colin Padalecki have had success all over the United States and now all over the world. Their biggest hit so far has been “Sunday’s Best,” but they are currently still producing and releasing amazing music. So we’re sure there is more to come!

Frank and Padalecki grew up in Texas, where the majority is country music, but they paved their own path and soon fell in love with pop, soul, and R&B. Scrolling through SoundCloud and Spotify, they found their favorite artists online!

The two-man band does mostly everything together. Frank and Padalecki write, sing and play most of their own Instruments for their songs. For the album Pacifico, they rented a house in Malibu, California, and created their songs at home overlooking the ocean.
