  • Butcher Brown

    Butcher Brown

    "Butcher Brown — the Richmond, VA, quartet of multi-instrumentalist Devonne Harris AKA DJ Harrison (keys), Keith Askey (guitar), Andrew Randazzo (bass) and Corey Fonville (drums) — is one of the most uproariously good bands to break onto the scene in recent memory. Their free EPs, a & b-sides, have a replay value that two works gotten for free from the internet just shouldn’t sensibly have. This group is good, too good, like if Madlib’s solo-jazz project, Yesterday’s New Quintet, suddenly sprouted three more heads. They’re cool without trying. They’re funky but not cheesy. They sound like a jam session in a cloud."

  • The Parmesans

    The Parmesans

    The Parmesans are a string trio from San Francisco, California. Part contemporary folk, part alternative country, sort of blues and not quite bluegrass, their music centers on vocal harmony supported by lush arrangements for acoustic guitar, mandolin, double bass and trumpet. They released their debut LP, Wolf Eggs, in 2013.

    Hughie Stone Fish and Ben Sheridan

    An entertainer at heart, Hughie's shows are always exciting. Whether you're laughing between songs or crying during them, you will be engaged with Hughie from the moment the show starts. 'His honesty could almost make you uncomfortable, if you didn’t believe every word he sings – but you do, and so you go along song to song, amazed at both the humor and the sadness a song can contain' says Los Angeles based blogger and Berklee College of Music Alumni Coordinator Justine Taormino. Ditching the band that he recorded Siren Songs with, Hughie is performing acoustically with Ben Sheridan, experimenting with vocal harmonies, different instrumental arrangements, improvised songwriting, and the performance of new songs.

  • The New Thoreaus

    The New Thoreaus

    Formed originally in 2007 as a group of Special Education teachers in Oakland banging out stress on drums and dulcimer, The New Thoreaus have maintained their original style while broadening their appeal through more traditional bluegrass and jazz instruments. An indie-folk band with a bluegrass bent, The New Thoreaus provide a “modern spin on old-timey folk and bluegrass,” according to the East Bay Express. “The Cello, upright bass, and trumpet lend the songs a baroque feel that’s similar to Beirut, while the harmonica and finger-picked banjo keep it firmly in Americana…When they blend in rich vocal harmonies, it’s akin to an alt-country Broken Social Scene.” (EBX) The New Thoreaus influences range from The Decemberists, Bon Iver, and Biz Markee to Gillian Welch, The Band, and The Grateful Dead. “The music is really about making interesting sounds,” says Chris Bloomfield, one of the band’s primary songwriters. “We all learned to play together, so when we’re working on a new song, a lot of it is about testing our boundaries and figuring out how to make sounds on the edge of beautiful and uncomfortable.” Their debut album, Neon Americana, was released in February 2013 to positive reviews. It is currently spinning on folk radio stations around the country. “The New Thoreaus are one of the few bands that can appeal to a crowd full of traditionalists AND folks who like a little something different,” says Mike Bond of Mutiny Radio’s The Bottleneck Cafe Radio Show. “Think Tom Waits meets NOLA’s Preservation Hall Jazz Band.” Their songs range from dark and sultry tales of greed and capitalism gone awry, to murder ballads, dreamy lullabies, gospel inspired tunes, and straight ahead rock and roll. Their range of styles and singers lends their music a hard to define quality that defies easy classification.

  • The Get Down Boys

    The Get Down Boys

    "The Get Down Boys formed in West Los Angeles in the Spring of 2010. The founding members had much in common but mostly two things: their love of bluegrass music and common alma mater, Berklee College of Music in Boston. The Boys hail from all over the US (Virginia, Missouri, Connecticut, Ohio).

    Since then they've toured over thirty US cities, released an album of original material, and performed alongside some of the industry's leading icons."
