Steve Broderick and The 100 Watt Suns
The 100 Watt Suns is an indie band on the coastline of Connecticut, in the shadow the of the Millstone reactor that plays nuclear roots rock. Sometimes it's smooth sailing, acoustic and stripped down, sometimes blistering and high octane. -
The 100 Watt Suns started after Steve Broderick, who’d spent 10 years on a tour bus singing in arenas with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, moved from his home in New York City up the coast a couple hours north near Mystic Connecticut.
James Mauri Four
'James Mauri has established himself as a dynamic singer-songwriter whose deep musicality is matched by his commanding lyrics. With a repertoire that frequently blurs lines between rock and folk, he has enjoyed airplay on local, college and major radio. James performs regularly in and around the northeast and is looking forward to touring the Northeast in 2014 in support of Four. The work on James’ debut EP, James Mauri / Four has been a collaborative effort between James and his backing band, including Arnie Cuozzo, Pete Ruello, and Rich Rivers.'
New Haven, Connecticut rock quintet, Chaser Eight, is a melodic, alternative rock outfit that released three singles at the beginning of 2016 and their first studio LP, Chaser Eight, on February 17, 2015. The group boasts bluesy and richly expressive vocals, mesmerizingly textured guitar playing, and a dynamic and imaginative rhythm section. Inspired by Joan Jett, Foo Fighters and Alanis Morissette, Chaser Eight writes moody, guitar driven songs lead with soulful female vocals. Since the age of ten, singer, *AUDRA*, and guitarist, Pat Walsh, have been writing songs together and released their first EP, Late Night Companions, in 2012 followed by EPs Up and Up and At the 426 in 2013. The band writes about relatable subject matter - darkness, love, loss, partying, and sex - inviting listeners to connect with the raw, passionate lyrics.
In 2013, the band made its television debut, performing two songs on WTNH's Connecticut Style Stage 8 and returned to Stage 8 in March 2016 and February 2015 to promote their singles and self-titled album. The band made their first official licensing placement in January 2014 with the commissioned remake of their song “Road (Indecision)” as the main title for the independent motion picture, Acting Like Adults. Their music has been played on Connecticut radio stations 99.1 WPLR and Radio 104.1 with Radio 104.1 being the official host of their video release party at Stella Blues in New Haven, Connecticut on March 25, 2016 and album release party at The Ballroom at The Outer Space in Hamden, Connecticut on February 21, 2015. Chaser Eight has opened for Panic! At The Disco, Atlas Genius, and The London Souls. *AUDRA* has worked with The Rolling Stones' iconic former manager, Andrew Loog Oldham, on the production and arrangement of her songs. They will be performing live all throughout the Northeast during 2016 and you can find their music on iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, and many other popular sites.
