Josh Martin: Using a variety of woodwind instruments including bass clarinet, alto recorder, and tenor saxophone (along with his Abelton-equipped computer) Josh Martin live records and samples his instruments in real time to create large, deeply textured works. From studying with Jazz Legend Bunky Green, Josh’s improvisation style has grown far outside traditional genres into post-modern experimentation. With influences ranging from Early Reniassance music to modern House and Bounce styles, Josh’s sonic endeavors range from sophisticated soundscapes to 80’s pop covers.
George Stass and Anya Aliferis: “A Cat Stevens for the 21st Century! ” is one way a listener has described singer/ songwriter George Stass. He writes wonderful songs both poignant and catchy that could be played ” in a church or a bar…and tell it like it is! ” as another listener put it. It’s classic songwriting with strong melodies delivered with just his acoustic guitar and easy to listen to soothing vocals. He has had the lyrics of his song ’41 Shots’ quoted in the NY Sunday Times in the year 2000.’ Badboy ‘ another composition by Mr.Stass came in the top 5 Pop category of VH1’s ‘Song of the Year’ competition in March of 2007. George has been performing full time in his native New York City since he quit his job in 1998. He is clearly a talented and experienced performer you will enjoying listening to!
