Little Band Of Sailors
"Oh my little band of sailors, under the carpet you go..." is the lyric improvised by Rachel Mason to the accompaniment of the bass guitar played by Dmitriy Ivolgin in the winter of 2010.
Rachel Mason - a scarecrow, a puppet, a clay sculpture, an alien star, an accomplished artist, and a stuntwoman who scales buildings in the name of art.
Dmitriy Ivolgin - an engineer with desire to write music.
Ever since that fateful day they have been writing songs and performing. Though their sound is stripped down and simple, their songs blend influences ranging from Fleetwood Mac to Black Sabath, P.J. Harvey, Alice Cooper and Carol King. Their melodies have been called haunting and piercing; their shows - bewitching and epic.
After about a year performing as a duo, they were approached by Mara Mayer during one of their shows who asked if she could play along on her bass clarinet. Squeaking, bellowing, and growling of the clarinet was such a perfect fit that Mara was immediately accepted into the band. In a short period of time performing in the North East, including a tour with outsider legend Ed Askew, they have stirred up much interest.
Little Band of Sailors is currently working on their first studio album Woman With a Suitcase.
Unlocking the Truth
Unlocking the Truth is a young heavy metal/hard rock band from Brooklyn, New York, who write and create their own lyrics and music. The band members are Malcolm Brickhouse (electric guitar), Jarad Dawkins (drums) and Alec Atkins (new bassist). Malcolm and Jarad formed their first band Tears of Blood in 2007. The boys are in the 6th grade and they’re pretty good students too.
Unlocking the Truth competed on Amateur Night at the Apollo Theater (aka Tears of Blood / http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_3k8BhT5cI) and made it to the Show-Off Round and have been performing at festivals around New York City, as well as in Times Square. The band performed at The Bitter End NYC as part of the Youth Art Forum's Cystic Fibrosis Foundation fund-raiser, Black Thorn 51, Queens, NY and Hank's Saloon, Brooklyn, NY.

Heavy metal is in their blood. That is why they do it so well.
SAMANTHA IS BROOKLYN BASED TRASH POP TRIO WITH A PENCHANT FOR LOUD GUITARS AND HARMONY. The band relocated from Chicago about a year ago and has since shared the stage with bands like Dead Stars, White Mystery and Unlocking the Truth. They’ve played all over NYC including Cameo, Santos Party House and the Trash Bar and have hit SXSW three times, with plans to return next year. Their new album “Hourglass Noise” was just released this spring. “We were going for a Kim Deal, Kurt Cobain and R2D2 on a road trip kind of thing. Not sure we ended up there, but the record is awesome.”
