  • The Psychedelic Furs

    Alternative Rock

    The Psychedelic Furs came together in England's emerging punk scene in 1977 initially consisting of Richard Butler (vocals), Tim Butler (bass guitar), Paul Wilson (drums), Duncan Kilburn (saxophone), and Roger Morris (guitars). By 1979, this line up had expanded to a sextet with Vince Ely replacing Wilson on drums and John Ashton being added on guitar.

    The Furs debut, a self-titled album from 1980 was produced by Steve Lillywhite. The LP quickly established the band at radio in Europe and was a top 20 hit in the UK. The album also found success in Germany, Italy, France, Spain, New Zealand and Australia. 

    The Furs found success in the U.S. with their next release, 1981's Talk Talk Talk, which saw the band making its debut on the US album charts. In New Zealand, meanwhile, the band became immensely popular, as Talk Talk Talk reached the top ten in the charts, the first in a string of Furs' albums to chart in the New Zealand Top 10.

    These days, the band continues to tour around the world. The current Psychedelic Furs touring lineup remains Richard Butler (vocals), Tim Butler (bass), Rich Good (guitar), Mars Williams (saxophone), Amanda Kramer (keyboards), and Paul Garisto (drums).

  • The Lone Bellow

    The Lone Bellow

    Americana

    The Lone Bellow burst onto the scene with their self-titled debut in 2013. The Brooklyn-based band quickly became known for their transcendent harmonies, serious musicianship and raucous live performance — a reputation that earned them their rabid fan base. It's been three years since the band's victorious Then Came The Morning was released. Produced by The National's Aaron Dessner, the album was nominated for an Americana Music Award. The band appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Late Show With David Letterman," "Conan O'Brien," "CBS This Morning," "Later...with Jools Holland," and "The Late Late Show With James Corden" in support of the album. In the years since the release, the band left their beloved adopted home of Brooklyn and moved to Nashville.

    Now, The Lone Bellow is back with Walk Into A Storm, which will be released Sept. 15 on Sony Music Masterworks. Walk Into A Storm was produced by legendary music producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, and more) and features their lead single "Time's Always Leaving." The trio, featuring Zach Williams (guitar/vocals), Kanene Donehey Pipkin (multi-instrumentalist), and Brian Elmquist (guitar), recorded this album in only seven days. The group’s first two albums graced the Billboard 200.

  • Robert Randolph & the Family Band

    Contemporary Blues

    Many musicians claim that they “grew up in the church,” but for Robert Randolph that is literally the case. The renowned pedal steel guitarist, vocalist and songwriter led such a cloistered childhood and adolescence that he heard no secular music while growing up. If it wasn’t being played inside of the House of God Church in Orange, New Jersey—quite often by Robert and members of his own family, who upheld a long but little known gospel music tradition called sacred steel—Randolph simply didn’t know it existed.
     
    Which makes it all the more remarkable that the leader of Robert Randolph and the Family Band—whose label debut for Sony Masterworks, Got Soul—is today an inspiration to the likes of Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana and Derek Trucks, all of whom have played with him and studied his technique. It wasn’t until he was out of his teens that Randolph broke away from the confines of his social and musical conditioning and discovered rock, funk, soul, jazz and the jam band scene, soon forging his own sound by fusing elements of those genres.
     
    “It was all church music. It was a movement within our church and that’s all we used to do,” says Randolph of the sacred steel music he played at the time, music whose association with his church stretches back to the 1920s. Once Randolph began to discover other forms of music, he saw how they were all connected, and was eager to find his own place. “All music is related. Gospel is the same as blues,” he says. “The only thing that changes is in hardcore gospel people are singing about God and Jesus and in the blues people are singing about ‘my baby left me’ and whiskey. When we first started out, guys really weren’t allowed to leave the church. I was the one that stepped out and started this thing. My dad would say, ‘Why do you come home smelling like beer and cigarettes?’ ‘Well, we just got done playing some smoky club till 2 a.m.!’ It was all foreign and different.”

    By the early 2000s, Randolph had begun applying his dazzling steel guitar technique to secular music, and from that grew the Family Band. The group’s sound was so different than anything else around that they were soon packing New York City clubs. Their first album, 2002’s Live at the Wetlands, was recorded at the now defunct jam band haven, and was followed by four studio albums and another live set, each widening the band’s audience—they’ve long been regulars on the festival circuit—and broadening their stylistic range as well.
     
    “Things happened really fast,” Randolph says now. “When I look back on that time, to be honest, I had no idea what the hell we were doing. We’d get told, ‘You guys are going on tour with Eric Clapton.’ ‘Oh, OK.’ I thought, this guy must not have a clue who I am but the first time I met him we talked for about an hour and played music backstage.”
     
    The Family Band’s improvisational skills quickly made them mega-popular among the jam-band crowd, but for Randolph and his band mates, what they were doing was just an extension of what they’d always done. “The jam band scene has that name but it’s really a true music art form scene where you can just be who you are,” Randolph says. “We fit in that category in some sense but the jam band scene itself has changed a lot since that time. I’ve grown to like songs and I like to jam within the song.”
     
    On Got Soul, Robert Randolph and the Family Band walk that line deftly, displaying their virtuosity within the context of a dozen smartly crafted tunes. “I like both playing live and recording,” says Randolph. “The thing about a record is you get a chance to rehearse parts and fine-tune things. But if you look at most great music artists—people like Stevie Wonder—the song is totally different from the show. When you’re in the studio, it’s hard to improvise without an audience. But for us, well, we’ve been playing in front of audiences our whole lives.”

  • Cracker

    Alternative Rock

    Cracker has been described as a lot of things over the years: alt-rock, Americana, insurgent-country, and have even had the terms punk and classic-rock thrown at them. But more than anything Cracker are survivors. Cofounders Lowery and Hickman have been at it for almost a quarter of a century – amassing ten studio albums, multiple gold records, thousands of live performances, hit songs that are still in current radio rotation around the globe (“Low,” “Euro-Trash Girl,” “Get Off This” and “Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out With Me” to name just a few), and a worldwide fan base – that despite the major sea-changes within the music industry – continues to grow each year.

  • John Hall

    John Hall

    Pop

    From his piano lessons at age 5 to his medal-winning french horn performance at the Ithaca College Music Festival, from his folk days of singing Weavers, Peter Paul and Mary, and Bob Dylan songs, from his obsession with the Ventures, Beach Boys, Beatles and Jimi Hendrix, John Hall learned three things: Play, Write, Listen. 

    Congressman John Hall represented Mew York's 19th district until 2011, when he returned to private life, and a life of music. After the Fukushima meltdowns in March 2011, he wrote and recorded the song "I Told You So," which he recorded and later performed with Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne and others as part of a MUSE/No Nukes concert in Mountainville CA. 

    Since reuniting with Orleans in August 2013, John has crossed the country half a dozen times, sharing the stage with artists including Christopher Cross, Firefall, Al Stewart, Player, Robbie Dupree, Gary Wright, and Ambrosia.. A book detailing his journey from rocker to representative is also in the works. More details here when available.

  • Fly Amero

    Fly Amero

    Acoustic Blues

    Left-handed, upside-down guitarist/singer/journeyman Dennis "Fly" Amero finds his musical roots deep within the vast genres of the '60's pop revolution. Influences range from Bob Dylan to James Brown to Roy Orbison to Aretha Franklin... and just about everything in between.

    As a young teenager, Fly was already capturing public attention, performing on the hallowed stages of 1967's Newport Folk Festival with Buddy Guy and Jr. Wells and - from the completely opposite end of the musical spectrum - the notorious Jim Kweskin Jug Band, then featuring Maria and Geoff Muldaur. 

    Growing up, Amero honed his stage skills with his brother's local, hard-working '70's soul band, J.B. and Water. Later, he moved to New York City, joining in on musical projects with members of the pop/rock bands, Foreigner and Meatloaf.

    In the early 1980's, Fly struck upon the start of what would become a lifelong friendship with the classic pop singer, Larry Hoppen of Orleans. He joined, toured and recorded with the famed group for the better part of 3 years before returning home to focus on his own writing.

    His remarkable versatility led to the writing and co-producing of Atlantic's holiday comedy album classic, Twisted Christmas, which quickly became certified gold in 1995.

    Two "Twisted" sequels and a long-awaited solo album later, Fly Amero finds himself onstage as a dynamic solo and frontman performer, and offstage as a writer and record producer.

    Fly is currently touring as a member of Orleans and fronts the thrilling rock/blues act known as "The Big Strum".

    Founded in a moldy basement in 2013, Harsh Armadillo continues to crush doctor's predictions for a blindly short lifespan with the release of their new EP 'BITE'. The previous five years consisted primarily of blue Gatorade fueled rampage, punctuated by two full length releases-- 'Thayer It Is' (2014), and 'Blame Bad Habits' (2017). They live for the live show, and look forward to getting funky in a dimly lit room near you. Stay harsh.

  • Loose Buttons

    Loose Buttons

    Alternative Rock

    A four-piece of native New Yorkers, the members of Loose Buttons came of age during the city’s early 00’s indie rock renaissance, on the heels of local heroes like The Strokes, The Walkmen and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs rising to national prominence. After releasing their sophomore EP ‘Sundays’ in February 2017, Loose Buttons has been met with critical praise that would do justice by their Lower East Side predecessors. Billboard has described the band’s sound as “a blend of new wave and pop all their own” while Consequence of Sound dubbed them “irresistibly sincere.” VICE hailed the group as a “garage-rock-pop good time” and Nylon is “absolutely in love with Loose Buttons’ scuzzed-out indie sound.”  

  • Tim Stout

    Tim Stout

    Pop-Soul

    Having started performing his music for live audiences in May of 2017, New York-based musician Tim Stout has taken off. With a sultry and often funky R&B-influenced pop sound, his music explores the intricacies of modern romance and communication in a rapidly changing world.
    Influenced by decades of music, Stout's sound stems from those of singer-songwriters like John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Bill Withers, and Stevie Wonder, to name a few. Even in solo performances, his sound is always full; inventively making use of pedals and loop stations like musicians such as Ed Sheeran and Tash Sultana, Stout arranges full soundscapes during live performances that make audiences doubt that he is the only performer onstage.
    ​After just a few short months performing around the NYC area, Stout opened for Allen Stone with Caleb Hawley in a sold-out show at Brooklyn Bowl in November 2017. Since then he's been in the process of recording his first full-length album, set to release early 2019.
