    Felsen

    Pop

    “I wanna live where culture kills machines and decent melodies will haunt you in your dreams.” On their 5th album, Blood Orange Moon, Felsen delivers a new telepathic message through melody and lyric beamed directly from their late-night West Oakland studio.  Blood Orange Moon, is slated for national release by Indie pop label, Mystery Lawn Music on January 26, 2018.  Listeners are reeled into Felsen’s revealing inner world of entangled branches, swarms of bees, unfolded paper cranes, private airlines, and kung fu medallion-wearing angel investors secretly typing in memory motels. There Felsen’s grudge match takes place between analog synth and cello, acoustic guitar and Reagan era drum machine, glockenspiel and fuzz box, reverb and tremolo, loud and just quiet enough to hear the gong shimmer.  Frontman Andrew Griffin started Felsen after his 2006 cancer diagnosis, which led to the release of Felsen's first album, Accidental Drowning, in 2009. Felsen Loves You—an EP on the Ninth Street Opus label—followed in 2010, and in 2011 & 2013 two other full-length albums—Breaking up with Loneliness and I Don’t Know How To Talk Anymore were self-released. Felsen has toured extensively throughout the US opening for national acts: Camper Van Beethoven, Marcy Playground, One Eskimo, Stone Foxes and Luce. Felsen has been featured on Bay Area radio stations KPFA, KALX, KZSU and were selected to be on KFOG's Local Scene Volume 11. Felsen has performed at both the NoisePop & ULUV music festivals and was a Deli Magazine Band of the Month. The current lineup of Felsen includes 4 Non Blondes guitarist Roger Rocha, former bassist with A Band Called Pain, Bryan Dean, Drummer Robert Tucker of the Metallica album Jason Newsted’s Chophouse Bandand and backing vocalist Dara Ackerman.  “Felsen strives to ensure survival of rock 'n' roll”  San Francisco Chronicle “Truly one of the best kept secrets of the Bay that deserves to be parroted, played as loud as possible, and shouted out to all corners of the world.”  Impose Magazine  “Marvelously witty pop”, East Bay Express

  • Rabbit Quinn

    Rabbit Quinn

    Alternative Rock

    San Francisco-based pianist, vocalist and songwriter Rabbit Quinn crafts otherworldly fables reminiscent of unconventional piano rock storytellers such as Kate Bush, Nina Simone, Tom Waits and Tori Amos. History, myth and literature transform Quinn’s footprints into compositions which are delicate, dark and romantic.

    Born in Saratoga to a classical pianist father from Azerbaijan, Quinn’s childhood was steeped in the diverse flavors of both Middle Eastern and western classical music. Her American ancestors were members of a string band from West Virginia that traveled the Appalachians during Prohibition, and her grandmother, Quinn, passed down the tradition of grassroots and Celtic folk songs. Rabbit wrote her first song, “Diamond,” in kindergarten when she found herself humming while staring at sunlight filtering through a Mulberry tree canopy, and suddenly felt like God had dropped a glittering gem in her lap.

    Quinn began work on her powerful debut offering, Lost Children, while studying music at UC Davis. Skilled at drawing and painting, she also created the artwork for the album. The songs of Lost Children are cathartic, poetic snapshots exploring themes of self-worth, death, sexuality, transformation and heartbreak.

    She is currently recording her second album, set for a fall 2017 release. After building a solid local following in the San Francisco Bay Area, Quinn has begun touring nationally, both solo and performing with her band.
