Experimental Gypsy Rock guitarist Will Hanza will transport you into a mystical state of mind with his improvisational playing from blues to folk, celtic to raga and spacey funk jams. He has been compared to Nick Drake, Warren Haynes and Jeff Buckley. He has performed at Brooklyn Bowl, World Cafe Live, Catskill Chill Music Festival, Philadelphia Folk Festival and shared bills with Moe., Lettuce, Dopapod, Lotus, Shakey Graves and more. He is also a featured contributor for Guitar World Magazine and has been featured on WXPN, PBS, Relix Magazine, The Village Voice and more. Will Hanza’s musical spirit will touch your soul and take you to an unexpected place in time.
An avid fan of Billie Holiday and Mazzy Star, Dani Mari was born to sing. Her music is fueled by personal narratives embedded in the craft of classic story telling and the emotional insight of a most unlikely “old soul”. Audiences across the United States and throughout Europe have gravitated toward her beautifully haunting voice and the simplistic elegance of her lyrics which transcend our current snap shot of popular music. With nothing more than her instrument and stories of her life experience, her songs merely hint at Dani Mari’s desire to transport listeners the world over to an era of nostalgia which exists within the depths of her soul.
She has been featured on NPR, BBC, MTV, WXPN (including the Gene Shay Folk Show on WXPN) and Brooklyn Vegan and has collaborated with FEAR CLUB from Paris, Sun Glitters from Luxembourg, Brooklyn Shanti and was formally in the dreampop duo, Lockets. Dani Mari performs solo and with Will Hanza as the dark-folk duo Owl and Wolf. She also collaborated with Reverend TJ McGlinchey in the folk-pop duo Lovers League and released an EP with award winning producer Bill Moriarty (Lotus, Dr. Dog).
Dani Mari is the founder of Female Frequency, a music collective dedicated to empowering women & girls in the music industry through the creation of media that is entirely female generated, with I Am Snow Angel and Claire London. They are currently creating an album made entirely by women with Kiran Gandhi and other female producers. Dani Mari is also in the process of producing her own album.
Owl and Wolf
Folktress Dani Mari has combined forces with the experimental sounds of Will Hanza. Their union infuses influences from americana, blues and folk music. The mixture of acoustic instruments with sultry melodies and harmonies create a sound that can be described as Dark Folk. The duo is set to release more music in the upcoming year.
The Breakneck Boys
The Breakneck Boys are a mountain soul-grass band with roots in the Hudson Valley and NYC. Their original music brings together the kinetic heart of the City and the laid back chill of the Catskills with a sound inspired by old school Motown vinyl, Lomax field recordings, and all night camp-fire jam sessions.
Listening to Aabaraki is like taking a late night subway ride deep into the heart of Brooklyn (with some friends you just met, headed to a party in some abandoned building). Everything is coming at you fast and furious, but with a depth and underlying meaning that might take hours or days to truly understand.
With an “alt-soul” sound described as “Gnarls Barkley meets The Black Keys,” the four-piece band consists of guitarist Brian Forbes, vocalist/keyboardist Akie Bermiss, drummer Attis Clopton, and bassist Ari Folman-Cohen. “Akie’s voice is the guide and conscience,” says Brian, who is also the band’s founder. “His soulful intellect and passionate fire lead you on an evolving journey and you’re never sure exactly where you’ll wind up. ” The band follows suit with electrifying guitar and production; deep, throbbing bass lines and a “constant pocket” on the drums that keep heads nodding. The result is a slow burn that spontaneously erupts into a full-on frenzy.
The Flowdown integrates jazz, rock, funk, and hip-hop, conveying peace through musical potency. The band blends lush instrumental arrangements with thoughtful melodies and rhymes, offering fresh grooves to all kinds of audiences. The Flowdown provides a unique experience through its crafted songwriting, live improvisational spirit and eclectic intercultural sense of musicianship. The group’s debut album, ‘Metamorphosis,’ has been well-received by both jazz luminaries and mainstream listeners alike.
Listening to Carbon Mirage — on stage or otherwise — you can’t help but be moved. The band’s sound, a collision of both rock and jazz, takes the listener to another world be it a soft day dream or a stirred adventure.
An unexpected mixing of melodies, Carbon Mirage’s sound is big and full. With influences ranging from Radiohead to Miles Davis, Sun Ra to Jimi Hendrix, each track moves in dynamic waves, charting a symphonic
journey filled with tension and release, joy and nostalgia.
Based in New York City, the band has performed at some of the most iconic venues, including: Mercury Lounge, Rockwood Music Hall, Pianos,
Spike Hill, Pete’s Candy Store, Spin NYC, Silvana, and other top galleries and festivals.
Cousin Earth (formerly Known as Ukulelien) is a Brooklyn-based Folk/Rock/Fusion Band. With both an original repertoire and a vast array of covers, Cousin Earth spans a wide range of musical styles bringing both a sense of playfulness and technical ability to the music many people know and love. From bluegrass to electronica, this band will take any song and uke-i-fy it.
Cole Quest and the City Pickers
Cole Quest and the City Pickers are a group of New York City musicians connected by friendship and their love of bluegrass. Playing in various incarnations and venues around the city with their first album to be released soon. They bring you up-beat, knee slapping, high energy traditional tunes as well as originals, and a high lonesome sound that’ll leave you wanting more.
“Cole Quest and the City Pickers spread the good word of Bluegrass through clever original songs and a vast library of classics. Their unbridled energy, tight harmonies and instrumental virtuosity will turn you into a believer in the good book of acoustic roots music.” – Steve Danielsson
Upstate Rubdown is a group of rowdy musicians dedicated to creating fun and provocative acoustic pop music, with clever rhythms and harmonies. The band’s influences range anywhere from Traditional to Classical and from Jazz/Show Tunes to Funk, with a shared love of Soul, Motown, and classic R&B, for a unique, body warming sound. The members of Upstate Rubdown live in New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley.
Somewhere at the crossroads of traditional roots and modern psychedelic music lies Bad Faces; wry and plaintive, weathered but fresh, and all American.
Johnny Butler’s Raise It Up EP takes the saxophone into another dimension with a provocative style that is as thoughtful as it is danceable. With a formidable 7-track lineup of original songs, Raise it Up includes a smorgasbord of free/uncleared samples and instrumental contributions by Kassa Overall (Geri Allen, Vijay Iyer, KOOL AD) on drums, Aidan Carroll (Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, Melody Gardot) on bass, and JJ Byars (Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, Hungry Hands) on alto saxophone.
Over the past several years, Butler’s live shows have been a showcase of brilliant improvisation and beautiful electronic music. Groove-driven but given to richly textured sound design, rhythmically fractured but melodically sumptuous, Johnny Butler’s music is a bridge between the past and the present, bringing the artist face-to-face with a creative legacy that spans decades. On Raise it Up, Butler seamlessly alternates between saxophone, looping, and samples, building a nearly infinite palate of planetary and interplanetary sonics merged into a Frankenstein’s monster-ish list of styles and influences
One late night in 2013 in the Lower East Side, an eclectic group of New York City musicians created the garage blues band, Animal Reporters. The band mixes elements of classic and modern rock into a vintage rock n’ roll dance party, embodying New York City’s raw and powerful energy in their live shows and unique sound. Within a year of forming the band, Animal Reporters have inspirited some of downtown’s best venues, including Webster Hall, Mercury Lounge, Bowery Electric, and Pianos. With hits like “Mailman,” and “Little Mama,” Animal Reporters offer the soul of a drifting cowboy with the funk of a 70’s Warhol happening. Dave Gelb fronts the band with an incomparable indie charm along with Johnny Marx dazzling on the keys, smiling the entire time. The Van Deusen brothers, Colin on bass and Chris on guitar, complete the doo-wop swag of the group, but often the eyes are drawn to the back line where drummer Eric Sands adds flare-laden fills to the driving beat. Animal Reporters are currently playing around New York City in support of their 4-song EP, Lights, Camera, Animals.
the go round
The Go Round is a lyrically driven trio out of Brooklyn NY consisting of Theodora Prunoske (violin, mandolin, vocals), Brandon Whightsel (guitar, ukulele, vocals) and Richard Duke (banjo, guitar, vocals). Brandon and Richard met as solo musicians in a hole in the wall cafe in South Brooklyn in 2009, when they were both booked on the same lineup. Richard had planned to cover the Elliott Smith song “Oh well, OK,” and decided to scrap the idea when Brandon played first and covered “Angeles.” Richard was transfixed by Brandon’s delicate and melody driven guitar work, lost as he watched brandon’s fingers climb all over the fretboard, nimbly fighting to contain his lyrics like a spider cocooning its prey. The stories in Brandon’s songs called to past lives, lost histories, secular traditions, and a patient observation. There were arcane etymologies and rhymes with three, four, five meanings, woven through common pastoral language and infused with colloquial voice. It ended up pairing well with Richard’s more meandering, obtuse, lyrics, with obscured stories and a blunt, fretful accompaniment on guitar.
Janna Pelle is a classically trained pianist-turned DIY Pop performer combining elements of rock, soul, and dance into her theatrical live performances. In addition to performing at NYC hotspots including The Bitter End and Pianos, Janna has shared the stage with Zach Deputy and Easy Star All Stars, and has performed across the country with her side project Michelle My Pelle at The Fest for Beatles Fans alongside the likes of Donovan and Mickey Dolenz of The Monkees.
Crystal Jurado Music
From a small California town, where the scenery featured tumbleweeds blowing past, Crystal Jurado dreamed of escaping. She found that escape a mere 20 miles away while teaching herself guitar between classes at college. Songwriting and performing helped her crack her shell and she hasn’t stopped since. From headlining solo shows to fronting a handful of bands, Crystal has had her way with stages ranging from house parties to legendary venues, and considers every performance an honor to play. Crystal is inspired by Portishead, Anna Calvi and Jeff Buckley, among many other artists spanning all genres. This wide range of influence is evidenced in her musical style, where you will find gutsy songs musing the mysteries of life sidled up alongside dark and sinuous ballads. She has been described as “mainstream enough for a broad audience, funky enough to attract non-conformists; and enough anguish to keep anyone’s attention”. With her unending drive to try every instrument and style out there (Se7en The Musical, anyone???), Crystal is bound to infect audiences with her inventive spirit and captivating songwriting.
Morning Martyrs was born out of the bricks of Boston via Philly, Pittsburgh, and Southern California. The past 5 years have seen this group of musicians transform and meld into myriad forms, all playing in various projects at different times, but somehow always finding their way back to a common stage. After far too long, they decided it was time focus their efforts and bring forth this beautiful, shiny new baby called Morning Martyrs.
Blending their diverse and respective musical backgrounds – ranging from folk to hip-hop, country and jazz to electronic – each member spins their own unique section of the collective cosmic web of americana.
Erik Kramer, Ricky Petraglia and Ryan Duchene were all members of the former band, The Blind Woods, from 2011-2013. Although short-lived, the band enjoyed some success, playing the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Fest both in 2011 and 2012, as well as playing and touring all around the Northeast and Southeast. Trevor Sohnen is formerly of the Boston-based bands, Fall of the Tin Can Empire, and more recently Licious, where he was founder, songwriter and musical director. Licious developed a solid following in the Boston area before deciding to part ways in August 2014. Although not a founding member, Ryan played bass for the last six months of their four year run as a band.
Come September 2015, they will all find themselves under the same roof, a motley band of brothers, making magic and vast quantities of ramen.
