    Major Player

    Alternative

    Major Player is the creation of songwriter and instrumentalist Jeffrey York. A native of Syracuse, York has spent years writing in the indie rock vein, with influences that span from Pop to Experimental. Building on the success of previous projects such as the rock outfit Animal Pants, Major Player is Indie Rock rooted in Soul and R&B. 

    York first broke ground on Major Player with help from drummer Liz Strodel and producer Andrew Greacen. What began as an experiment in hip-hop beat-making transformed into a full fledged indie rock ensemble. The latest configuration of Major Player includes Brent Spreter on Bass, Stephen Collie on drums, Ian Doherty and Deion Patterson on Keys.

    In the summer of 2016 Major Player released its debut album “Extended Play.” The record is deliberate in its simplicity, intentionally lo-fi and moody. The tonality of these songs call up something dream like and familiar, making use of repetition and overlapping layers that build on one another. With lyrics that explore the shadowy faces of love and age, Major Player maintains a pop driven focus, while delivering dark creative melodies and catchy vocal hooks.

    Strange To Look At

    Indie Rock

    Established in 2017, Strange to Look At is a fittingly weird meeting of the minds set to shake up the Syracuse music scene. 

    The band's five players trace their roots back to a variety of styles — from blues to punk rock, to prog, to ska, to North Indian classical music. As Strange to Look At, they've found unity in an affinity for horror and sci-fi soundtracks and female-fronted indie rock.

    At times sludgy, then psychedelic, then lush and danceable, but always a little spooky, Strange to Look At makes the kind of noise that's best experienced live. 

    "It made me want to trick-or-treat."
