Watch & Listen
Atlas Gray (formerly Forward Motion)
Atlas Gray’s music and performances capture the qualities of music that move people. Steeped in the traditions of funk and soul, their sound is instantly recognizable yet entirely new.
Influenced by his jazz and rock backgrounds, singer, songwriter and pianist Alex Godiksen has developed a style that is at once both lyrical and soul-driven. Lead guitarist Andy Sorenson and drummer Jon Stoltzfus are childhood friends from Philadelphia who share a love of classic funk and modern jazz. Guitarist John Brackett has come back to Connecticut after several years of absorbing the classic Americana sounds of blues and country in Tennessee. Bassist Adam “Coffee” Clark also has experience performing euphonium and trombone at a professional level. While the influences are diverse, they are also at the root of Atlas Gray’s ability to create a sound that can instantly connect with the audience.
The members of Atlas Gray are determined to create original and honest music that is both story driven and constantly evolving. As a band on the rise, they are excited to bring their sound to new audiences and venues throughout the country.
Can You Canoe
Not far from Philadelphia, in one house, lives all six members of Can You Canoe; a band who has hopped on the wagon to turn the wheels of change in modern rock music. Still searching to pinpoint a specific genre other than rock and roll, Can You Canoe's folk/country/classic rock roots come to light as they begin to establish a sound that's all their own. Performing seven members strong, Can You Canoe deliver a dynamic, high-energy show that will make any rock enthusiast tap their foot, and curl their lip.
