Press Release

Lucius - This Brooklyn-based quintet is centered around the duo of Berklee School of Music voice majors Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig. The band’s music mixes torchy, pedal steel-infused Americana and urban indie pop - with a healthy nod to ‘60s girls groups. Lucius has played Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival, Lollapalooza, End of The Road, Reading and Leeds Festivals, and shared the stage with the likes of Roger Waters, Mavis Staples, Jeff Tweedy, Sara Bareilles, and David Byrne After issuing “Wildewoman” in 2013, the band toured extensively in support of the album, cris-crossing the U.S. and making multiple trips to Canada and Europe, including a tour with Jack White. After being on the road for almost two years, the band moved to Los Angeles to record its current release, “Good Grief.” 

 

Rachael Yamagata - Before embarking on a solo career, Rachael Yamagata pursued a degree in French at Northwestern University, and majored in Italian Theater at Vassar. Upon returning to Chicago, she landed a job as the vocalist for the popular Chicago funk-fusion band Bumpus for six years. A stunning collection of songs landed Yamagata a two-record deal with Arista's Private Music in 2002. Her self-titled EP was produced by Malcolm Burn with the full-length “Happenstance” following in 2004. Her songs have been featured on several TV shows including “How I Met Your Mother,” “ER,” “Nip/Tuck” and “The O.C.” She has guested on CDs by Ray Lamontagne, Mandy Moore, Jason Mraz, Ryan Adams and the Bright Eyes. After the two-part release, “Elephant” and “Teeth Sinking Into Heart,” she issued “Chesapeake” in 2011 and “Heavyweight” in 2013.

 

Adia Victoria - Featured as one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s "10 New Artists You Need to Know," Nashville-based singer/songwriter Adia Victoria is a former ballet dancer/telemarketer/French major who grew up in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Raised in a strict, Seventh Day Adventist home, she has tested the waters in New York and Atlanta, with stops in Paris and Germany. Her music bridges the gap between blues, rock, afro punk, and country. She was tagged by Vogue as one of "5 Beauties Who Answer to Afropunk's Rebellious Call." Her full-length debut is titled “Beyond the Bloodhounds,” the title of which pays homage to a line in Harriet Jacobs' “Narrative in the Life of a Slave Girl.”

 

Margaret Glaspy - New York-based Margaret Glaspy is a powerful and emotional singer and songwriter whose debut “Emotions and Math” has just been released by ATO Records. After cutting her teeth as a sidewoman in bands in New York and Boston, she decided to strike out on her own. At 26, Glaspy, who was raised in Red Bluff, CA, has a lot on her mind - and doesn’t believe in pulling any punches. ​


William Matheny - William Matheny, a West Virginia native and longtime keys player for Athens, Ohio, indie heroes Southeast Engine, has broken out on his own with Strange Constellations, his debut 11-song solo collection out February 24, 2017, which might more than anything provoke the question: Why not sooner? William Matheny would best be classed as a songwriter’s songwriter--the kind of composer who gets the melody just right every time, and the kind of lyricist whose turns of phrase bring an involuntary grin. Once you’ve heard his deft songcraft, you might feel cheated that he withheld it so long.
