The Victorian Dining Room Series

Hot Brush

A Hot Brush is an intense moment/experience; enlightenment; an alignment of fate. A genuine appreciation for music and involvement in a variety of creative endeavors lent to the spawning and evolution of this unique project. Both, Jace (of Alright Junior.) and Elissa (of Molly Rhythm), have been utilizing music for it's natural therapeutic values for as long as they can remember. "We consider music and HOT BRUSH to be a lot more than just a hobby or career. We hope our music emulates the emotional thought process involved, so strongly, that people experiencing it will take with them what we put into each and every moment." - Jace & Elissa

Instrumentation includes Jace & Elissa each on vocals and switching between guitar, ukulele, bass, piano, and percussion.

John & Brittany

JOHN & BRITTANY are a songwriting duo hailing from Philadelphia, PA, comprised of guitarists John Faye and Brittany Rotondo. Faye, the frontman of IKE, one of the city's best-known rock bands, met Rotondo in late December of 2008. The two struck up an immediate musical kinship, with a mutual love of the Beatles and the Ramones, and within a couple months the pair were writing songs together, one of which ("Last Act") would end up on IKE's latest release "Tie The Knot With All That You Got." Never having performed live or seriously played an instrument before, Rotondo received her first guitar in June of 2009 and by December was performing "Last Act" onstage with IKE at their sold out album release show at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.

In 2010, Faye and Rotondo hit their creative stride with a string of memorable, quirky songs.. snapshots of damaged nicotine addicts, angry middle managers, and close encounters with whiskey-swilling devils. Anchored by Rotondo's simultaneously blunt and poetic lyricism and elevated by Faye's knack for creating unforgettable melodies, John & Brittany's music is a true partnership of youth and experience, order and chaos, escape and reality. In addition to their duo performances, John & Brittany have also started working with a full band, featuring Jay Miraglia on drums and Mike Vivas on bass. The group released their first single "Devil's Allure" in December of 2010 and plans to record their debut EP in early 2011.
