Band of Young Saints: Band of Young Saints play commandingly melodic garage, punk and surf inspired rock 'n' roll designed to make you want to dance with somebody. These carefully crafted pop songs are sure to make you move and sing along with their earnest lyrics, and emphasis on hook driven melody. With comparisons that go from Superchunk to Elliot Smith, their range is broad but always rooted in the rock tradition. If you put The Pixies and The Beatles in a blender, you may end up with Band of Young Saints. Established in Bay Ridge, the 'B.O.Y.S.' have been a staple of the southern Brooklyn music scene for the past five years plus. With the addition of Alex on vocals in fall 2010 and Brendan on rhythm guitar earlier this year, the B.O.Y.S. have plunged into a more ambitious sound and live performance while retaining their lyrical, sincere and often playful approach to song writing. Driving grooves join buzzy guitar work to create a true American original, defying easy categorization. With a catalog of original songs and recordings that could be the soundtrack to your favorite John Hughes movie or Saturday night, Band of Young Saints embody the celebrated sensibility of their New York City roots by way of popular melody.
Dead Jetsetter: DEAD JETSETTER is... Johnny Andrew is an NYC singer-songwriter/guitar player. He likes to perform with different bands and sometimes goes solo. He mainly sticks to venues in NYC and LA to keep things spread out. PauL - Native NY'er. Former guest of NYC renown bellview hospital Psycho Department.

  • Ten Ton Man

    Ten Ton Man

    When Ten Ton Man’s Paul Livornese hits the stage and plugs his hollow body guitar into his 18-watt amp, you forget that he was once a successful creative director based in NYC who decided to leave his day job a year ago to pursue his life-long dream of becoming a musician. 

    On their self-titled, indie debut album, Ten Ton Man channels the spirit of Sam Phillips’ Sun Studios, Johnny Cash and Tom Waits. Along with front man Livornese (vocals/guitar), veteran upright bassist Paul Dugan and drummer Paul Triff, a long time collaborator, round out the Ten Ton Man lineup. Dugan, who’s played with notables such as Patti Smith and Jon Spencer, was instrumental in shaping Ten Ton Man’s sound, both live and in studio. Triff’s drumming compliments 
    Livornese’s rich, baritone voice. Erik Della Penna’s hooky banjo riffs and slide guitar is also featured on Ten Ton Man’s debut album. 

    Brooklyn-born Livornese previously performed in several female fronted bands, including Honest (which sported several placements on MTV shows like “Road Rules” and “House of Style”). After a successful design career, Livornese decided to pursue writing and performance. 

    Ten Ton Man’s music is heartfelt and emotional, dealing with themes like death, guilt, shame, frustration and anger, but ultimately redemption. Its thematic roots lie in Livornese’s own struggle to find his muse, set against the backdrop of his father’s death, several failed band projects and a penchant for dating. From the well-named opener, “Ditty”, which offers a cleansing purge, to the somber tune “Carry It”, a tribute to Johnny Cash and Livornese’s father, Ten Ton Man takes listeners on a personal journey that is never less than compelling.

    TEN TON MAN is available now on iTunes, Spotify, CD Baby and Bandcamp.

  • Near Peak

    Near Peak

    The story of the Brooklyn-based band Near Peak starts back in an elementary school day care just over 20 years ago in the San Francisco Bay Area. Travis and Alex met while tinkering on broken electronics given to them as a distraction. Taking stuff apart and figuring out how they worked came pretty naturally. Fast forward a decade, everyone in the band, Josh, Travis, and Alex, all tackled the music program at UC Santa Cruz. They all continued their passion of taking stuff apart and figuring out how it worked, this time via music. Fast forward another decade, everyone found their way through an uncountable number of musical projects, and also found themselves in Brooklyn. Travis and Alex knew that a band had to come together, and when they were introduced to Josh, everyone realized that it was a perfect combination. Music was made.
