Mercies is based out of a restored old tobacco barn in northern CT. It's where they write, record, rehearse, and return after tour. Some say it's where the magic happens. The truth is, it's where they sit around all day petting a golden retriever while listening to Gene Pitney's Greatest Hits. Not wasting any time, Mercies are set to release a two-song 7” vinyl by the summer of 2013. Moreover, they’ve already written nearly enough material for their next full-length album with a planned release of Spring 2013. Aiming to collaborate with more dance companies, score films, and tour, the future is looking bright and busy for this ambitious group. “I’ll be cheering for these guys every step of the way, and after a good listen you’ll understand why.” – The Deli Magazine.
Oh, Cassius! is singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, Meredith DiMenna and John Torres. Where Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris meets Of Monsters and Men, Oh, Cassius! plays beautiful and haunting songs that are simultaneously classic and modern.
The DuPont Brothers
Two brothers reunite after years of geographical separation by a fortified collaboration in music. Sam and Zack Dupont are best friends, siblings and now coconspirators in a shared passion that runs deep in their family. Lush finger-style guitar work is complimented by elegant prose and a vocal blend that could only be matched by blood relation. The sound is Vermont made folk-rock-americana.
