The Collection

"It didn't take long for David Wimbish's solo project to become a full band. The community that had inspired his music quickly began to embody the songs, wielding instruments last played in middle school marching band, and fulfilling 'the Collection's name. Coming from Greensboro, North Carolina, their songs stem from an awareness of their state's folk roots, and an appreciation of orchestral and world music. After the loss of dear friends and family, the band released their first full length, "Ars Moriendi", featuring over 25 musicians, and wrestling with questions of mortality and spirituality. As the last year has brought more focus to the Collection, both in size and in vision, they released their new record, "Listen To The River," while still retaining their original inspiration and muse - the community of those intrigued by the mystery of life."

Em & The Fates is a Brooklyn-based septet whose rich three part harmonies and soul/pop arrangements hark back to an old school soundscape, glittering with nostalgia, yet anchored in lyrics that evoke contemporary themes. Their music is audacious, calling on the past in style and falling into the present in content, often subverting expectations of the two nestled side by side and expressing a vigorously feminist perspective. The Fates have a live, big band, organic sound, with brushstrokes of Amy Winehouse and The Supremes, laden with a theatricality like Freddie Mercury's. Certain tunes breathe a little more pop, others a bit more funk or rock, but the connective tissue is that they're inspired by a sound that’s come before.
