Jason Ingriselli

New England native Jason Ingriselli has been making music throughout the Northeast over the last decade in basements, bars and music halls. He has showcased his authentic Americana voice with a wide variety of local & national recording artists from stages to bar room floors. His unique and powerful voice sits right at home in an ever-growing landscape of Americana/Roots music throughout the region.

What started out as a collection of songs written on a solo road trip to Nashville evolved into what eventually became known as "The Miles North". Since then he has worked tirelessly to complete a process which is best described by Producer Dave Swanson...

"The process of songwriting, recording and making art is a marathon rather than a sprint. You come up against roadblocks. You deal with frustration, expected delays and life circumstances. It's much easier to give up when things get hard instead of persevering to try and make something great. I really believe in these songs and in Jason's unique voice as a songwriter. I'm proud of what we've made together and think you'll love it to".

In the end this is a group of songs based on topics everyone can relate to and understand.

After multiple trips to studios in Avon, CT and Nashville, TN – “The Miles North” will be released September 7th 2018 on City Ride Music Recording Co.

Lyon Street Fire

Lyon Street Fire is a New Haven, Connecticut based band led by singer/songwriter Michael Hunton and is a sound inspired by delta blues and folk with a backbeat.

The band, born in a basement in Wooster Square, is comprised of New Haven’s best soul singers and musicians. The sound is a culmination of fingerpicking, slide guitar, and harmonies with an edgy vibe. Rounding out Lyon Street Fire is Charlotte B. Greene on vocals and percussion, Jonathan Rodenfels on keys and harmonica, Kyle Hallett on bass, and Roland Regos on drums.

Hot off their recent self-titled debut album release, the gritty story-telling and high energy band is hittin’ the road to rumble some floor boards. Put on your favorite pair of boots, come to the show, sip some whiskey, stomp your feet and awaken your soul. See you on stage.
