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. She has collaborated Fear Club from Paris, Sun Glitters and was formally in the dreampop duo, Lockets. She has performed at SXSW, The Philadelphia Folk Festival, Musikfest, Johnny Brenda’s, World Cafe Live, Glasslands Gallery, Rockwood Music Hall and many other venues. In addition she has performed with acts such as St. Lucia, Twin Sister, EXITMUSIC, WIDOWSPEAK, Mates of State, Patti Smith, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, of Montreal and more. Dani Mari is currently working with the folk-pop band Lovers League and is set to release a wider body of work for her solo project with boutique art label, Someplace Called Brooklyn. With nothing more than an acoustic guitar 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.

He followed it up with another home recording, ‘Paper Back Bones,’ which BBC Scotland named one of the Best Americana Albums of 2012.

Stroamata wore many colors, took many different shapes, and created a wide and wild array of sounds throughout the late 2000’s. It wasn’t until 2008 with the release of the self produced album Things Left Lying Around did Stroamata really come into being. The sound and style grew with their second release, The Phoenix EP, in 2010. Stroamata played just about every club in Boston and has built a strong reputation for often being the best band on the bill. Now Stroamata is taking their sound to Brooklyn, to light a raging fire.

“Bursting with musical and spiritual energy, lush soundscapes, and riveting musicianship… The driving force is his own restless, intertwined musical and spiritual energy… with haunting vocals in the manner of early Pink Floyd and King Crimson.”
– Timothy Peters (MusicDish.com)
Opened for Marc Ford (The Black Crowes), Suzanne Vega, The Hold Steady, Richie Cannata, The Funk Ark and many others.
Downward Dogs bring acoustic punk up from the curbsides of New York City with an aggressive swing; we heard rock and roll needed more horn sections, so we obliged. Picture Pixies and Steely Dan rumbling in a Burger King parking lot, brass and drone braying from mono speakers. Say hello to big choruses, swaying anthems, yelping lyricism, terse minimalism. Feel the big comfy chair from which you bark your savage orders.
Born 20 months prior to the fall of the Berlin Wall, Zach was raised in the picturesque harbor town of Blue Hill, on the northern coast of Maine. When he was 10 he picked up a trumpet and learned the blues. When he was 13 he picked up a guitar and learned angst. When he was 17 he started to learn how to edit and he continues to attempt to fashion himself into a coherent representation of the contemporary artist at war with himself and the world around him. He’s basically negotiated a cease-fire with all parties except for conservative ideologues, who he happily shoots on Sunday afternoons from the comfort of his home in Brooklyn, NY.

Sarah Rayne was born on a bicycle somewhere in the swamps of Louisiana. She wore a gilded crown of sugar cane and alligator teeth. She was abducted by pirates as an infant, and ended up in the suburbs of New York, where she spent her formative years not being able to shake the feeling that she wasn’t quite like the other kids. After much trial & tribulation, she found where she truly belonged: a community of like-minded artists and weirdos in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Fast forward five years: Sarah Rayne is a creator, curator, and lover of all things beautiful. Music is her way of letting the poetry that’s in her soul escape the confines of her body for a brief & glorious moment. She is currently recording a demo and seeking musical partners in crime.
Maggie Poulos, sometimes compared to Fleetwood Mac, is a singer/songwriter that has been performing all over Philadelphia and New York.

Five sisters who were separated at birth – Millie Lee, Millie Dee, Millie Flor, Millie Lil, and Millie Fred – toured the East Village for several years, tearing up Dixon Place, P.S.122, La Mama, WOW, and other venues back in the day.
Her delicately powerful voice and carefully crafted lyrics hold a strength in their raw vulnerability. With influences as varied as Florence + the Machine to Bon Iver, Fleetwood Mac to the Pixies, Lily Virginia plays her own brand of alternative folkpop, bringing together americana, rock and pop to create an experience where each song can exist on its own. An accomplished songwriter, she recently completed the 2013 NYC BMI Songwriters Workshop in NYC and has had her music placed in film and on major network TV (ABC).
