Charlotte Sometimes:

New Jersey native Charlotte Sometimes may not have started as a singer/songwriter, but she's always been a performer. Involved in both dance and musical theater throughout her childhood, Charlotte eventually picked up the guitar when she was 14 and began writing and performing her own compositions. Before graduating high school and moving on to the New School in New York City's Greenwich Village, she had already released several homemade EPs and a live CD. It was during college that Charlotte Sometimes was born as a stage persona. The moniker was taken from a book written by Penelope Farmer -- the same book, incidentally, that inspired the Cure to write a song of the same name. After signing with Geffen/Interscope Records, Charlotte Sometimes released her debut album, Waves and the Both of Us, in 2008. ~ Katherine Fulton, Rovi

Cary Nokey: So by now you probably heard that the ‘80s are back… Maybe…. But not quite… Sure, bands like She Wants Revenge, Shiny Toy Guns and the Killers brought us a taste of that Robert Smith (The Cure) crying out, distressed, dark melodic vibe... Because, of course, Rock n Roll is supposed to be dark and mysterious, right? But the ‘80s weren’t all that dark, now were they? Times were good, people wanted to have fun, and not since Woodstock did we feel something exciting brewing in the airwaves again. Cary Nokey is not about over the top vocals, slick stage theatrics, or trying to get in the mainstream radio lane with some old world major label shot in the dark creative marketing plan. Instead it’s about what we have been missing since the end of an era, and it’s about being entertained again... Not being sung to but being part of the experience. Picking up the pieces from where artists like the Cars, Gary Numan, ABC, and Rick Astley left off, Cary Nokey puts 2013 into the carefree, looseness of major chords, funky bass lines, sing along hooky lyrics, and melodies as if you have already heard the songs a thousand times before. Ali in Da-City was born the illegitimate son of Roland Gift (Fine Young Cannibals). Although he never met his father, Ali obviously took on the funky blood line and quirkiness, bringing back "left of center" pop vocals. To say Ali has the "gift" would be an understatement. If Fine Young Cannibals did a record with Bowie producing, and Roger Waters and Lou Reed were writing the tunes, it might help paint the picture. Co-writing all the songs on the first Cary Nokey record, Ali brings us back to that simpler time and feel, when music was about music. 8 bit has been programming synths on some of the most recognized records of the last decade. Working under greats like Babyface, Rob Fusari and Timbaland, 8 has been developing a production style headed straight for the rock history books. Although shying away from being called a "genius," 8 bit puts his money where his mouth is by challenging any producer out there to a "drum off.” 3 minutes and the drum machine of your choice, 8 bit promises, no matter who you are or what you have done, he will put you to shame. Although most don’t want to accept the challenge, the few that did gave up long before the clock started running for their turn.

  • Catey Shaw

    Catey Shaw

    21 year old singer/songwriter Catey Shaw was born in Virginia Beach where she lived until moving to New York City in 2010 to attend the School Of Visual Arts as a painter. Catey discovered her natural talent and love of music through her close relationship with her Grandfather who was a radio host and song writer in Syracuse. As a little girl, when Catey went to see him sing in clubs he would only play her requests if she stood up on a chair and sang with him which she enthusiastically embraced to amazed audience members. After writing 2 songs on a toy ukulele that was left at her house, her father bought her a real one for her 18th birthday which she still plays to this day in New York City subways to earn extra money. Catey's influences include, Billie Holiday and Bob Marley which is evident in her vocal style and approach to adapting and writing songs on the ukulele. Catey considers herself a true artist and speaks the languages of both music and visual art with equal passion and many of her songs have been crafted around her own sketches and paintings. From her dorm room at SVA, Catey studies the great masters of both art and music and crafts her own voice that inspires anyone who hears it.

  • Late Guest (At the Party)

    Late Guest (At the Party)

    Combining elements from different genres since they started out in 2002, eclectic Italian group Late Guest at the Party have always been able to cross several geographical and musical borders with their unique sound made of well-read electro lashes, engaging beats and catchy anthems, all permeated by a peculiar r'n'r DNA and 90's brit-pop / rave hints. Lauded for years by press and the web as next big thing and pioneers for every forthcoming musical wave, they were signed for the first time in late 2007 after music guru Steve Lamacq broadcasted their song We Were Young on Radio BBC One and suggested their demo as one of the best of that year. They're first album Come Back Bobby Peru was released in 2009 by 42 Records, one of the best-known Italian indie labels. It was produced by Giacomo Fiorenza (Italian indie's grey man since the dawn of time) and mastered by Alan Douches (LCD Soundystem, Liars, Converge, Sufjan Stevens, just to name a few). The album received enthusiastic reviews and quite a lot of a buzz, with articles appearing in Rolling Stone and worldwide airplay for the single from the BBC to smaller indie radio stations in the New York area. LGATP promoted the album by hitting the road for almost two years playing shows everywhere from the biggest venues in Italy to smallest bars with their energetic and absorbing sound. During this time, the band had tracks featured on various compilations distributed by the many prominent Italian blogs and press, a series of remixes and a digital EP in late 2010 with b-sides and demos from the upcoming release. In 2011 LGATP relocated to NYC to record a new album produced by Chuck Brody (Peter Bjorn and John, Shy Child, Bear Hands, Ra Ra Riot, Wu Tang Clan) and featuring collaborations with artists such as Kenan Bell, Hesta Prynn, Randy Shrager(Scissor Sisters) and Slam Donahue. The lead single, You Make Me Nervous, will be released digitally on August 16 by NYC's Reynold's Records as a taste in anticipation of the new forthcoming record.
