Hard to categorize, easy to love, 79.5 has been making tons of noise around New York City for the past two years. With three lead vocalists alongside a band that pulls influence from every corner of a record store, it’s no wonder they’re already taking the scene by storm. They are an act that gets put on as an opener and shortly thereafter is asked by the venue to do a month long residency. That residency leads them to a full page write up in The New Yorker before they even have a single out. 79.5 wins over listeners wherever they play with their unique and infectious energy.
They released their first single “Terrorize My Heart” in September 2016 which has been heavily supported across the US on tastemaker radio programs at KCRW, WFMU, and KEXP as well as overseas by the likes of Giles Peterson & Radio Nova. They have played some of the most hip and notable stages in NYC from Bowery Ballroom to Baby’s All Right, and recently finished a US tour opening for Chicano Batman.
Their debut album “Predictions”, produced by Leon Michels (Lee Fields, The Arcs, Lana Del Ray) comes out in the fall of 2017.
Mara Kaye is a real one. Born and bred in Mill Basin, Brooklyn, she’s rocked houses all over NYC and beyond spitting her truth singing with audacious rhythm, love and an uncanny rawness that is unique only to her.
Some of her most electric and rewarding moments have been her sold-out performances at Joe's Pub, Symphony Space, Shanghai Mermaid and closest to her heart, her very intimate performances at Sunny's Bar in Red Hook.
Backed by treasured veterans of the scene, Mara has brought her own modern charisma and freshness to a historic genre on the verge of being lost, bridging the gap between the new generation and the OG's who've lived to tell their stories firsthand.
Mara is currently working on a solo project; FiLLuS, a manifest of move-making in Brooklyn, a fresh blend of hip-hop and her blues.
