On The Sun
On The Sun is a live band based in Brooklyn, NY creating original music influenced by soul, rock, funk, americana and psychedelia. With all members contributing as writers, arrangers, and/or producers, the group's collaborative process yields frequent new material and they are currently recording a follow up record to their self-titled LP debut.
Hayes Peebles seems to be well aware of songwriting's golden rule: the sad songs sound the sweetest. After a brush with notoriety, the native New Yorker spent his college years plucking out the beginning of the tunes that appear on his latest EP, Ghosts, a record that The Wild Honey Pie writes "promises to announce a new voice in alt-country/americana."
Bandits on the Run
Bandits on the Run is a Brooklyn-based criminal trio, notorious for stealing hearts and serenading strangers. They first gained infamy conducting musical sticks-ups in the subways of New York City with their three part-harmony and nostalgic sensibilities. At the center of this dangerous crime ring are Roy Dodger (a.k.a. Adrian Enscoe) guitar & vocals ; Bonanza Jellyfish (a.k.a. Sydney Shepherd) cello & vocals; and "Clarissa" (a.k.a. Regina Strayhorn) percussion, xylophone, melodica & vocals. All three bring their unique voices and songwriting abilities to the table, creating a variety of sounds and styles that create a musical web of sound hard to pin down, and even harder to resist. To your ears, these whimsical criminals will sound like a nostalgic medley of old and new. Their tools are various and sundry, a motley mix of off-beat pop music covers, reworked jazz and rock standards, and originals that'll make you feel like deja vu all over again. They've amassed a collection of songs, stolen and original alike, that some say would charm the pants off of even the most callous New Yorker. But don't take our word for it, catch the Bandits in action! You may find yourself swept away, smiling in spite of yourself, slow dancing with a stranger, or even dropping a dollar into the cello case.
