Chris O'Leary Band's new release - "7 Minutes Late" - is fully loaded with 12 new original fractured tales of hope and despair. O'Leary s exceptionally impressive songwriting, impassioned singing and harp work are on full display on this release. Chris will be on tour throughout the US and Europe.

http://thechrisolearyband.net/

The Chris O'Leary Band's music is rooted in the blues and steeped in the tradition of Memphis, Chicago and New Orleans with rockabilly and big, high-energy sound.

Levon Helm can be heard in Chris's early sessions, and sitting in with regular gigs. Soon, Levon asked Chris to join the house band at his new club in New Orleans. Chris’s band relocated and became the focal point of Levon Helm's Barn Burners, backing up touring stars and opening for New Orleans' finest players.

The Slambovian Circus of Dreams - collectively - are pioneers of the Americana genre, equal parts Washington Irving and Woodstock, tapping styles ranging from dusty Americana ballads to huge Pink Floydesque cinematic anthems. They've been called “the hillbilly Pink Floyd,” particularly if you throw in elements of Incredible String Band, Neil Young, The Band, Dylan, Bowie and Syd Barrett.

The band runs its own label, with four critically acclaimed studio albums: A Good Thief Tips His Hat (1999), Flapjacks From The Sky (2003), The Great Unravel (2008), and The Grand Slambovians (2010).

A Box of Everything (2014) released through Sony Red as the band’s ‘greatest hits you’ve never heard". Their next studio album, ‘A Very Unusual Head’ will feature guests including guitarist Gary Lucas and Willie Nile, among others.

New MSL Album! Check it out! "Fated/Faded"

Vocalist and songwriter, with a baby blue guitar and a Marlboro bass, Mimi performs solo dream pop as an electronic multi-instrumentalist, and more recently, in a power-punk-dream-rock collaboration with the Beacon NY punk trio, Knock Yourself Out (KYO). MSL (pronounced missile) is the latest incarnation of Mimi Sun Longo, whose projects have included MimiSun ('08), Higher Animals('11), We Got Whales('15), and now, MSL + KYO, with no end in sight for our expectations of MSL.

MSL achieves the grind of Janis Joplin and subtlety of Angel Olsen. Josh Stark's loud lead riffs through layers of delay and distortion, push and pull in a winking attempt to tear at the impenetrable KYO rhythm section that is Harrison Cannon and Mike Rasimas.

Unfailingly sturdy and open-hearted songs, rock-energized bluegrass propulsion with a soulful, humble overtone.

https://www.itkmusic.com

In The Kitchen got their start in the steamy kitchen of a second story apartment in Rosendale NY. It was a warm midsummer evening and the boys started plucking sweet sounds as chicken, potatoes and green beans sizzled in the oven.

You might say, that meal defined the band's sound - simple and satisfying. In The Kitchen plays a mix of Americana music, with hints of bluegrass, country, ad soul, peppering their songwriting.Their live sets move through a range of emotions, with plenty of danceable, driving tunes, balanced with slow grooves, and earnest lyrics and singing.

Like any fine Upstate band, their latest album, Almost Almost There, was recorded in a log cabin nestled in the Catskill Mountains.

Voices joining in harmony over melody, strumming guitars, bouncing bass and lilting rhythms are as old as the hills. Yet, capturing that in a naturally demands maturity, experience, family and friends.

Collectively, the band members have shared stages and recorded with artists such as Harry Belafonte, David Byrne Brazilian Girls, Meshell N'Degeocello, Joe Jackson, John Scofield, Natalie Merchant, Cedar Walton, James Maddock, Leona Naess, Idina Menzel, Garland Jeffreys, The Soup Dragons, Andrew Roachford and the WNBAYs, among others.

For over two decades, Don Byron, a recipient of the first Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, has been exploring widely divergent traditions while continually striving for what he calls "a sound above genre." As clarinetist, saxophonist, composer, arranger, and social critic, he redefines every genre of music he plays.

Outstanding guitarist/composer Matthew Finck has performed and recorded with many artists. Matt formed his remarkable jazz/funk ensemble Fat Mink in 2005. The group has released a long awaited first album (2018).

Ben Perowsky’s notable career has placed him among a small vanguard of players able to move between jazz, experimental music and cutting edge pop and rock. He cut his teeth as a youth playing drums for several artists.
