WYATT is the new project of celebrated NYC singer/songwriter Maddy Wyatt. What began as the solo effort of Miss Wyatt has morphed into a collaborative adventure with brothers Paul and Alex Wyatt, bassist Zach Lane, and keyboardist Dana Haynes. Since the release of their debut EP last summer, WYATT has toured all over the Southwest, played festivals from SXSW to CMJ, and earned kudos from the likes of NYC’s The Deli Magazine, The L.A. Examiner, and TimeOutNewYork, who says “their lack of pretension and simple melodies are reminiscent of Mirah.” WYATT aims to make you move your bod and sing along. The songs on this EP are the closest yet they’ve come. Vive la WYATT!
Sami Akbari, known musically as sami.the.great, spent her childhood growing up in both Iran and the United States. As an adolescent she was somewhere between the two cultures, causing her to feel out of place among her peers. In music, Sami found somewhere that she belonged.
Her music showcases a small-framed singer whose impassioned voice fills the spaces and lives around her.
Rebecca Jordan grew up in Ohio listening to The Cure, Aretha Franklin, Joao Gilberto, and Tom Petty. She studied classical piano as a kid and taught herself guitar to write songs.
Since moving to NYC, Rebecca has made a unique name for herself as an artist and a songwriter. Rebecca is the 2010 recipient of the Abe Olman Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame, a 2010 NPR Mountain Stage NewSong F
inalist and a 2011 Independent Music Award Nominee for her self released Souvenir EP.
Rebecca has written for Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and co-wrote five songs for Alice Smith's upcoming EP, executive produced by Citizen Cope.
