Christopher Paul Stelling

Christopher Paul Stelling

Christopher Paul Stelling arrived in NYC in 08' with a guitar and a duffle bag. Not necessarily concerned with making a name for himself, circumstance and necessity soon found him singing and playing guitar on the subway platforms. The years prior had seen him through an odyssey. From studying under a master guitar builder in colorado, working a produce market in Boston, sleeping in a closet in North Carolina, managing a used bookstore in Florida, wandering aimlessly through Seattle, all without a said plan in mind, vaguely unaware that something was being stitched together beneath it all. Those New York subway platforms soon gave way to stages. Christopher has played many of New York's stages including Rockwood Music Hall, Highline Ballroom, Lit Lounge, Pianos, The Living Room, Bowery Electric, Sidewalk Cafe, Glasslands, The Mercury Lounge, Bowery Ballroom, etc. He has opened for many acclaimed national acts and headlined many of his own shows. He has toured regionally and nationally. His finger-style guitar playing comes off effortless; bringing to mind the likes of at times John Fahey and Sandy Bull and at other times that of Segovia. Christopher's song writing reaches deep, spineward, with a lyrical styling reminiscent of anything from Dylan, to Faulkner or Walt Whitman.

Having already self released a 20-song album on his own, and recorded session with daytrotter.com, Christopher's highly anticipated debut official full length album, "Songs of Praise and Scorn", is complete and released on 2/21/12.

Laundry Day (formerly Brother Burnet)

Founded in the winter of 2014 with borrowed guitars and a month long trial of Ableton; Laundry Day began as an experiment amongst friends but quickly found traction both in their hometown of New Haven and in surrounding cities.
With shows at The Bowery Electric, and BAR, supporting roles for bands like You Won't, Frontier Ruckus, and Jeffrey Lewis. With friends in high and low places, Laundry Day are all too excited to see what their project has in store for them.

Jay Prince (of Eurisko)

Jay Prince is a singer/songwriter from the New Haven area of CT. He grew up in a household steeped in music, and says "there was always music on...my heroes have always been musicians, specifically songwriters." Raised on various forms of American roots music: rock and roll, southern rock, blues, and country (and later punk rock and hardcore), the template was set for what would later become his distinctive style of American folk music. Influences can, at times, be broad, but easily narrowed down to early Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, Tom Waits, Elliott Smith, Willie Nelson and Leonard Cohen.
He has shared the stage with such acts as Those Darlins', Murder By Death, David Dondero, and Grant Hart (Husker Du).
His debut EP was released Jan 10th, 2014.
