Charlene Kaye

It's been all systems go for Hawaii-born, New York-based Charlene Kaye since releasing her sophomore album "Animal Love," which reached #15 on the iTunes pop charts upon its release this May and has been hailed as "a tour de force of Kaye's songwriting talents and her voice" (the Pop Stereo) and "fluent in classical piano as [it] is in glam rock" (the New Yorker). In addition to touring relentlessly and playing CMJ and SXSW festivals, the ambitious songwriter/multi-instrumentalist has earned enthusiastic reviews from PopMatters, VH1, Huffington Post, NPR, The Atlantic, the NY Deli, the Village Voice and more for her commanding voice, deft guitar playing and electrifying live shows. She has shared a bill with the likes of Big Boi, Minus the Bear and Holly Miranda and has over a million views on her YouTube channel. This past November and again in May, she went on two national tours supporting musical theater/internet sensation Team StarKid, earning her thousands of new fans. Her single "Dress and Tie" featuring good friend Darren Criss of Glee was featured in a promo for NBC's Chuck, had extensive play on radio stations nationwide, and was selected as official boarding music for Delta Airlines.

With a sound that fuses the buoyant pop of Robyn and Niki & the Dove, the vintage soul of Prince, and the sentimentality of Rufus Wainwright, Charlene Kaye is a force whose music is at once classic and contemporary, of the times yet unmistakably timeless. With a rapidly growing fan base and more touring on the horizon, Kaye shows no signs of slowing down, picking up steam even before she leaves the ground.

Emmy Wildwood

Vibey melodies and sexy song writing take center stage as Emmy Wildwood approaches dark, synth pop from a dance-punk perspective in her debut single "Chick Chick Boom (Tired Of Love)," out soon via Tiger Blanket Records.

Stepping into a new realm sonically, Emmy's grunge punk past fronting rock trio VELTA still lingers in this emotional pop outfit produced by Tomek Miernowski (Darren Criss, Mos Def, Outasight). Starting with "Chick Chick Boom", Wildwood and Miernowski have crafted an array of dream pop heavy hitters for Emmy Wildwood's first solo album due out in September - all built around a 70's Linn drum Machine and lo-fi electric guitar demos cut by Wildwood herself. Seamlessly, deep chord progressions and bright vintage synth hooks bridge the gaps on each arrangement.

The first single "Chick Chick Boom (Tired of Love)", is described as a cross between Robyn's "Dancing On My Own", and Stevie Nicks singing over Prince's "When You Were Mine," off his Dirty Minds LP. Vocally, Wildwood charges each song forward with a fully developed croon that's all her own- setting her apart from the rest of today's pop princesses. Her rich dynamics in warmth and vulnerability showcase themselves in her delivery as often as her bright powerful belt does, which is indicative of the wounded place from which it was evoked. Wildwood also further accents her lead vocal with a set of beach boys-esque male back up singers, who help lift these melodies to the next level sonically. She will make her solo debut July 20th at The Bowery Electric in NYC, where she will unleash the breadth of her creative pop anthems to the masses.

Also the founder of Tiger Blanket Records, a small record label and vintage store based in Williamsburg Brooklyn, Wildwood has been revered for her music, fashion and business sense. Time Out New York named the songstress New York's most fashionable of 2013 and was applauded for her work as a leader in the musical community, hosting monthly showcases under the label name for unsigned Brooklyn bands and printing limited runs of 7 inch vinyls free of cost to associated artists.
