Press Release

 

Lake Street Dive - The four members of Lake Street Dive - hailing from Tennessee, Iowa, Minneapolis and Philadelphia - met when while studying at Boston’s New England Conservatory. The members, including powerhouse singer Rachael Price, were hand-picked by Minneapolis trumpet/guitar player Mike Olson and named after a neighborhood of bars in his hometown. Jazz-schooled and DIY-motivated, LSD takes a penchant for indie pop and stretches the boundaries to a sophisticated brand of acoustic, groove-driven soul. The group’s homemade video of a street corner performance of The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” caught the attention of none other than T Bone Burnett and now has more than one million views. Following up 2014's “Bad Self Portraits” - which catapulted the band from “a weird alt-country jazz group to a “pop-soul juggernaut” - LSD released “Side Pony” in 2016.

Suzzy Roche & Lucy Wainwright Roche - In 2013, The mother-daughter duo of Suzzy Roche and Lucy Wainwright Roche issued their first collaborative CD, “Fairytale & Myth,” which won the popular vote for “Best Singer/Songwriter Album of the Year” for the Independent Music Awards in 2014. Suzzy is a founding member of The Roches, a long-running group that featured sisters Maggie, Suzzy and Terre. In addition to recording numerous albums with The Roches, Suzzy has recorded two solo albums, and an unusual collection of musical prayers, “Zero Church” (with sister Maggie), which was developed at the Institute on the Arts and Civic Dialogue at Harvard University. Suzzy has taught performance at NYU and at Princeton University, and written two books; a novel “Wayward Saints,” and a children's book “Want To Be in a Band?” Suzzy is also currently performing with The Wooster Group in “Early Shaker Spirituals - a record album interpretation -  Cry Trojans! “ based on Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida, and “The Room”by Harold Pinter. Lucy Wainwright Roche, began singing backup with her brother Rufus Wainwright and opening shows for her father Loudon Wainwright. She has toured with Dar Williams, Neko Case, and Amos Lee and has drawn comparisons to Joni Mitchell and Patty Griffin. Her last solo release was 2013's “There's a Last Time For Everything.” This year, Suzzy and Lucy released their second recording, “Mud & Apples.”

Seratones  are beasts of the Southern wild. The four-piece rock band, hailing from Shreveport, Louisiana, play rocking, swinging, soul-stirring tunes that are uniquely their own. The band's sound owes much to the commanding vocals of frontwoman AJ Haynes. At age six, Haynes began singing in Brownsville Baptist Church in Columbia, Louisiana, where she was taught to project her voice to hit the back wall. "Church was where I was introduced to the spirit, y'know?" AJ says with her sage laugh.”All our songs are written collaboratively, everyone takes care of their own instrument," explains AJ of her bandmates Connor Davis (guitar), Adam Davis (bass), Jesse Gabriel (drums) . "'Take it Easy' started with an E-chord and a good groove, and we just pulled it from the ether." Their debut single "Necromancer"/"Take It Easy" is set for release October 16 on Fat Possum Records, and is produced by Jimbo Mathus. ​

My Bubba - This femme folk duo from Scandinavian features My Larsdotter and Bubba Tomasdottir (hence the group’s name). They have toured with Damien Rice, co-written music with Matthew E. White and recorded with Noah Georgeson. With one guitar and two vocals, they have drawn comparisons to Simon & Garfunkle. Their new release, “Big Bad Good,” was recorded in Brooklyn with Shahzad Ismaily (Will Oldham, Jolie Holland). 

Royal Wood - Since being awarded “Songwriter of the Year” by iTunes, Toronto singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, Royal Wood has established himself as a musical force. Both of Wood’s releases have debuted in the Top 30, received multiple JUNO nominations and included the most added song on Hot AC radio. His music has been featured on TV shows including “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice.” On his new release, “Ghost Light,” Wood plays most of the instruments, including piano, guitar, bass, keys, and percussion.
