Hailing from Mullingar, Westmeath in Ireland, Amy Quirke started out as a drummer in a local band. Gigging at every opportunity across the length and breadth of Ireland, not only cemented her reputation as a multi-instrumentalist but also sowed the seeds for her own solo material.
Taking leave of the stage to focus on writing, Amy moved to London and then to Melbourne, Australia. Combining the energy of both cities with her own real life experiences, she has developed her own brand of honest song writing both on solo and collaborative levels. After a stint in Los Angeles, California, Amy returned to Ireland to record her debut release.
Landen Starkman is a 21-year-old, born and raised in Los Angeles. Landen’s family knew he could sing when he matched pitch with the dogs barking in the neighborhood when he was just six months old.
After a heartbreak in college, he wrote his first EP, “Freshman Year” with the thought in mind that listeners would like to plug their headphones in and go on a journey...a beginning, middle, and end. These words came from his heart. A happy at times, but ultimately broken heart. When he started this project at the end of summer, he didn’t play the piano but wanted so badly to share his music that he learned how which he plays throughout his EP.
While both living in their parents' house, his older brother Wyatt Starks took his vision and helped bring it to life as the producer. He hopes you will download “Freshman Year” and come along for the ride.
Thirty-five years ago, Disturbed Furniture cast a large shadow on New York’s underground club scene, sharing stages with many now iconic local, national and
international acts including the Psychedelic Furs, Stranglers, The Waitresses, and the GoGo’s, toured regionally, released well-received music and videos. The band merged
art world and punk sensibilities with the grittier dance aesthetics of the progressive Funk of Parliament/Funkadelic, Prince and so on. Hunter and company’s performance were
informed by both the noir cabaret vibe of the East Village scene, and the sensuality of contemporary urban sounds. They offered an alternative to the dogmatic shabbiness of
NYC’s post-punk scene as well as the banal excess that uptown disco culture settled into.
