  • KAYE

    KAYE

    Music

    As frontwoman of the critically acclaimed New York-based group San Fermin, Charlene Kaye has played network television, major festivals like Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits, and many sold-out shows. Last year Charlene released  her debut solo EP ‘Honey’ as KAYE -- a five-song introduction to the next phase in her evolution as a songwriter and powerhouse singer.

    Her new single, “Cheshire Kitten,” signals KAYE’s first work since the 2016 release of her critically lauded EP Honey, which gathered praise from NPR, Billboard, AV Club, Consequence of Sound, Stereogum and Nylon. The song explores the idea that there are masculine and feminine sides within all of us, and how embracing both is vital to being whole. She told Popcrush, “Women in the entertainment industry are often put in boxes and there’s an urge from the media to categorize us as only one thing, so the song celebrates the fact that we are versatile creatures who can be lots of contradictory things at once. We can be technically capable AND sexual, aggressive and soft, breadwinners and maternal figures-and I wanted the song to reflect that.”

    “Cheshire Kitten” will propel KAYE into the summer, with a new video coming in August and other unannounced surprises around the bend.

  • Sammy Rae & The Friends

    Sammy Rae & The Friends

    Music

    Singer/songwriter, bandleader, and human being Samantha Bowers was born in the small town of Derby, Connecticut. Sam first began writing songs at age 12 while taking piano lessons and listening to Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel and Freddie Mercury playing on the family stereo. By 16, Sam developed a love of jazz and began to study the great female vocalists of the century (mainly Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James and Sarah Vaughn) as she started to perform original compositions in local Connecticut and New Jersey venues. She would go on to release the LP ‘Hopeless’ (2010, age 15) and EP ‘Celebrate My Heart’ (2012, age 18).
     
    In 2013 at age 19, Sam packed up and moved to New York to pursue music and songwriting, enjoying a sixth-month residency at the prestigious Cotton Club jazz lounge in Harlem. After the release of the 2016 LP ‘Sugar’, The Friends were born from a collection of talented musicians and friends. Sammy Rae & The Friends would play shows around the NY Metro area as Sam kept composing and sharpening her craft, culminating in the July 2018 release of the self-produced EP ‘The Good Life’, premiered to a sold-out crowd at C’Mon Everybody in Brooklyn. The release marked a fresh start for the seasoned vocalist showcasing her skills as a composer, arranger, lyricist, and bandleader on her fourth release. The lyrics focus on themes of coming-of-age, defiance, and self-expression. Her genre blending performances are high-energy, honest and quirky, influenced by the great performances of her childhood classic rock heroes.
  • Ess See

    Ess See

    Music

    The eclectic electro-pop of ESS SEE has been a long time coming—and well worth the wait. ESS SEE is Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Sarah Cobb. Cobb began producing her own demos in 2009 alone in her bedroom at night—honing her technique of crafting addictive, seductive melodies. Embracing lyrical influences St. Vincent, Emily Haines, Carole King, and Garbage —ESS SEE delivers a heightened sense of vulnerability and intimacy in her songwriting. Her rich, often theatrical, live performances engage audiences with eye-popping costumes, humor, and an electric presence. Her debut EP, "Ordinary Woman" was released in 2017, and her first full length album produced by Julie Kathryn of I Am Snow Angel will be available in 2019.
