Live Well is an emotional punk band from the greater New York area. The band was started by Paul Masbad and Max Johl after traveling the country together in late 2017. With the addition of Matt LaPerche, Neil Stafford, and Luis Castro the band was complete. Live Well is set to release “First demos" in late April 2018 and is excited to share their nostalgic music and deep rooted lyrics with new fans in the coming months.
Looms is Sharif Mekawy (vocals, guitar, keys), Harry Morris Jr. (guitar), A. Hammond Murray (bass) and Louis Cozza (drums). The group’s music is written around vocals and melodic instrumental arrangements with an evolving catalogue that runs the gamut of song construction. Rock, pop, jazz, electronic, folk, and more are dissected and deconstructed down to their basic components, and then reimagined. Looms is releasing their third LP, The Way Up, on Good Eye Records this Spring.
Strawberry Blonde formed in the basement of the SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Music, where Alex Frondelli (drums), Sean Power (bass), Carey Ozmun (trumpet/keys), Sam Barna (guitar), and Liam Connors (vocals/guitar) met while attending college in 2015. Their debut EP “Better Still” saw release in 2016, and the song “Another Dream” was featured in the film “All Those Friendly People” alongside the likes of Basement, Joyce Manor, and Funeral Suits. In the year that followed, the group spent time cultivating their live show and naturally began developing their sound into something more cohesive and collaborative. With an eclectic mix of pulsating R’n’B-informed rhythms, layers of dreamy guitars, intricate horn arrangements, and powerfully introspective pop vocals, the band has drawn comparison to Foxing, The 1975, American Football, and Bon Iver. After extensive conversation about musical direction and artistic intent at the onset of the writing process, they began working on their follow-up EP, “Calling”, which saw release on January 11th, 2019.
