Adia Victoria

In February Adia Victoria released the critically acclaimed LP Silences(Canvasback) and the momentum has been strong ever since. On release day she and her band embarked on the "Dope Queen Tour" playing to audiences throughout North America and April saw her do the same in the UK and Europe. Adia is now back stateside touring the U.S. with shows that included a stop at WXPN's NON-COMM convention in Philadelphia, Boston Calling and Newport Folk Festival. "Adia Victoria captures the spirit of the blues in a simple phrase," said NPR, "black genius." "The songs on 'Silences' are mercurial, alluding to old styles only to have them melt down and mutate into something stranger," said the New York Times, "In her music, the blues is a baseline and a frame of mind, not a genre boundary; it pushes her to take risks." Silences was recorded with Aaron Dessner (The National) at his studio in upstate New York. Throughout the album's 12 tracks, Victoria brings the topics of mental illness, drug addiction, sexism, and all the elements that consume the day-to-day lives of women attempting to make a world of their own.

Fronted by sisters Monika and Karen Walker, The New Tarot is on a mission to deliver a philosophical, post-pop take on alt-rock. Using melodic sensibilities and yearning questions, the two sisters have been writing music together from a very young age. Karen is a renowned pianist and spent some time at the Hart School of Music studying composition while Monika plays guitar and has a background in philosophy and artificial intelligence, and is now finalizing her degree in cryptology. Five years ago they began to record and perform together under the name The New Tarot, and eventually, they assembled a finely tuned musical machine, utilizing the awesome abilities of Dave Kahn on bass, and now welcome awesome drummer Derek Broomhead to the band. We are especially excited to now feature virtuoso Brazilian guitarist Andre Vasconcelos. They have released 4 Eps, 7 singles (the latest enjoying substantial radio play and having been featured in the recent internationally televised broadcast of the Miss Universe competition), and have just released their first LP which premiered on Billboard. The album, Book of Promises, evokes a rock opera whose narrative has at its core a message of enlightenment brought to our generation by a character from another World. The New Tarot is based out of New York City, and have headlined many of the area’s popular venues; including The Bowery Ballroom, Webster Hall (studio), Le Poisson Rouge, Brooklyn Bowl, Music Hall of Williamsburg, and dozens more.
