Mad For Justice
Original high-energy rock combined with edgy funk groove. Performing live in New York City.
Phil and Billy have been performing together with R&B/funk band Soulshine for the past two years at music venues all over NYC to great audience response. With Mad for Justice, their signature blend of rock/funk/soul is further expanded by the diverse influences and experiences of the other band members. Madison is a rock singer from Tennessee. Justice is from Brooklyn and has been performing with rock/funk/soul groups in NYC. Jon has played with numerous rock and blues bands on the East Coast. And New Jersey-born Shannon has been singing with bands in NYC for some time.
Guitarist Phil Reeves and bassist/vocalist Billy Asai have formed an original modern rock group – Mad for Justice. Combining high-energy rock with edgy funk rhythms, Mad for Justice is ready to unveil its sound on the NYC music scene. The group is fronted by vocalist Madison Jone and vocalist Justice L. Vocal harmonies are rounded out by Shannon Pie. The instrumental nucleus of the group consists of Phil (guitar), Billy (bass & vocals), and powerhouse drummer Jon Weiswasser.
Mad for Justice’s original songs rock out to get you singing along, and drop down into a funky groove to get your dancing feet on the floor. And they play new interpretations of some classic rock and funk songs you will definitely recognize.
singer-songwriter with a jazz theory and theatrical background, Bree’s music is thematically inspired by the jazz and blues songs of the 1930s and 40s while utilizing the musical style and instrumentation of indie pop/rock artists such as Andrew Bird, Lilly Allen, Amy Winehouse, St Vincent, Regina Spector, and Pearl and The Beard.
Bree enjoys integrating the unique themes of her venues into her shows, whether it involves donning eccentric themed outfits or splicing a relevant selection of covers into her standard performance set.
In her past two years in the Brooklyn and Manhattan area, she has established artist residencies with Idos Sushi in Manhattan and The Way Station in Brooklyn. Her singles “Isolde” and “She Knows” are available for listening on iTunes and CDBaby. Her first independent EP will be released in summer 2012.
Kile Atwater (pronounced like Kyle) is an American singer-songwriter, recording
artist and actor born in Atlanta, GA on July 18th, 1991. Kile spent most of his life in
Houston, TX, where he began performing. Currently, Kile resides in New York City and will release an EP titled STAND CLEAR OF THE CLOSING DOORS, which will showcase his vast musical influences, abilities and life experiences.
As a singer Kile began recording in May 2011 after being contacted by record producer TeV95 who discovered Atwater via a YouTube video of the young singer performing a cover of the Beatles song "Oh Darling". Influenced by a wide of array of musical genres, Kile has quickly developed his artistry and song writing abilities recording a unique sound of pop, and alternative music with an inspirational message.
As an actor Kile has trained at: Tisch School of The Arts High School Program, and The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts. Regional theatre credits include: The Dentist in Little Shop of Horrors, and leading roles in the plays: The Boys Next Door, Check Please, and The Diviners.

He is currently working on a Screenplay and acting in another independent film called The Art Machine.
The development of his unique style is a direct result of the powerful effect music has had on his life. Growing up in a single parent household, his sound was shaped primarily by his mother, who played everything from Lauryn Hill and Stevie Wonder, to The Beatles and Mariah Carey. Atwater grew a passion for performing at a young age, often singing in run-down venues in Texas from just 9 years old. He was actively involved in theater and music in school, staying after school for hours for play and choir rehearsals, using his talent as an escape from a less-then-stable home environment.
