THIS IS STENOGRPHER’S EP RELEASE PARTY
Stenographer is a budding collaboration between two long-time friends and musical partners, Rocco DeRosa and Elizabeth Vaughan. Formerly of Boston-based indie rock group The Naked Stills, Rocco met Elizabeth (formerly of precisely zero bands) at an open mic in 2012 and they soon began performing together in Do I Do, a wedding band still gigging in high gear to this day. After years of belting out covers at raucous receptions, Rocco finally convinced a very timid Elizabeth to record an EP of her originals (optimistically titled Start With These Words). As the recording process unfolded, so too did a mutual enthusiasm for co-creating. Many shows and studio hours later, Rocco and Elizabeth are excited to present their eponymous debut EP, Stenographer, slated for release in late June 2018. Born of a shared love of RnB, Jazz, classic rock, and folk, and infused with probably way too many feelings, these songs are their own form of musical stenography, melodic shorthand for love and loss. Hopefully they’re just the first of many to come.
Anna Snow joins forces with guitarist Chris Keiffer to create their own brand of ambient-folk. Whether through songs about family, the in-between places of love, or hope for loved ones in distress, the duo combines moody, evocative guitar voicings, vocals, and lyrics to transport the listener to another world. Based out of Boston, Massachusetts, Snow performs with uncommon passion and sincerity; she feels each note, and every word. Snow and Keiffer will be releasing their sophomoric full studio EP, Is This Us, produced by Rocco DeRosa, in June, 2018.
After graduating from the University of Maine, Snow moved to Albany, N.Y. where she continued to hone her skills playing the local open mic circuit and fronting the band “Noise Between Stations.” After leaving the band in 2012 to pursue a solo career, Anna began working with guitarist Curran Fahey and performing her originals in the area.
Shortly after moving to Somerville Massachusetts in spring of 2013, Snow began performing with guitarist Chris Keiffer, who adds soft, tasteful melodies over Snow’s wistful ruminations on relationships, family, and life. Snow and Keiffer have played on many stages throughout the Boston area including: Arts at the Armory and The Burren in Somerville; the Lizard Lounge, The Lily Pad and The Cantab Lounge in Cambridge; as well as Walnut St. Café in Lynn, and the 6B Lounge in Boston. They have also been featured on radio stations such a wmfo.org and wumb radio.
Young Frontier is an original Americana band from Boston, MA. Formed in 2015 by guitarist singer/songwriter Joe Young;
mandolinist and electric guitarist Dan King; and cellist Bethany Weiman.
Pulling influences from Folk, Rock, and Country, the band has tailored their
signature sound: alternating gritty and glassy instrumentals, tight harmonies,
and Joe’s honest and powerful voice.
