BreakThru Radio Presents:

Friend Roulette 

Flying Pace

This misfit gang of nyc band vets is led by the smoky vocals of Kristie Redfield. Her wonderfully pecuilar songs reveal new layers upon each listen. The rhythm section of Marta DeLeon on bass and Josh Arenberg on drums go by the name "Ruff and Tumble" for good reason. George Flanagan plays guitar and does his best to sprinkle some fairy dust on top of the lovely mess.

Bright Brown is sonic cinema. Bittersweet layers and textures abound, and beautifully crafted songs exist at the core. Alex Nahas’ songwriting boldly chooses to sit “between the meager and the mundane” elevating the everyday. 

Since the immediate chemistry or their chance meeting on the New York City Subway a few years ago, Alex Nahas and Nick Smeraski have released two critically acclaimed records, the intimate and moody “No Matter How Faint There’s Light In Everything” and the more epic and celebratory "Oceans", while wowing audiences with explosive duo performances. Alex accompanies his darkly optimistic vocals on The Chapman Stick, a seldom seen ten-stringed electric instrument covering a sonic range from deep, earthy bass to shimmering highs, while Nick Smeraski drums viscerally textural pulses that choose moments to lash out in restrained violence.  

Alex Nahas is best known for founding the critically acclaimed post rock band, Laughingstock. Other achievements include touring and recording with John Vanderslice, and producing / engineering the first Mates of State EP.  

Bright Brown's music follows the trail blazed by such innovative artists as Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, The Flaming Lips, Daniel Lanois, Animal Collective, Sigur Ross, Mark Hollis, Peter Gabriel, Jeff Buckley and Radiohead.
