Rabbit & The Hare
California born singer Marisa Duchowny and New York-native Neill MacCallum first started playing music together after Neill placed an ad on Craigslist looking for a female multi-instrumentalist. Marisa answered the call and they met a week later in Central Park, with guitars in-hand. They played their songs together and quickly discovered their voices blended beautifully to create rich and resounding harmonies. Now, a little over a year of playing together, they have found their niche in the music community and are ready to carve out their own place.
Fresh off recording their first album together, this fun and feel-good Indie-Pop band draws it's inspiration from classic bands like The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Simon and Garfunkel, Nina Simone and Ella Fitzgerald.
Whether accompanied by the exciting sounds of synth, drums, guitar, bass, violin, and cello, or just the bare-bones, stripped down sound of their voices, Rabbit and the Hare will most definitely leave you wanting more.
The Arcane Heart
he Arcane Heart is the music of singer-songwriter Stephen Chandler Wilson. Based in Raleigh, North Carolina, Stephen has been writing and performing live music for a decade. Fronting a number of different projects over those years, The Arcane Heart is the newest and most focused of Wilson's musical endeavors. Before forming the live band, he took to self-producing an entire full length album's worth of recordings for this project and has already begun independently releasing some of the material this summer.
The interesting story about the band's debut recordings is the long list of guest musicians willing to lend their talents to Wilson, helping shape the sound of this new project. Players including Grant Emerson (Delta Rae), Brett Hart (formery of The Band Perry), Ryan Johnson (American Aquarium), Autumn Brand (Saints Apollo), James Jenkins (Pseudo Blue), Kaitlin Grady (Saints Apollo, Once and Future Kings), Jim Crew (Sidecar Social Club) and Allyn Love (Jeanne Jolly) make this record a local collaboration of note.
The majority of the tracking for the songs was done with engineer Mark McKee at Raleigh's K-House Recording. McKee also contributes additional instrumental parts on electric guitars and keys, adding brush strokes of texture-rich sounds to Stephen's debut independent producing effort.
Look for an official release of the entire album this winter.
The beginning of Embers End. In the summer of 2013, Emily Pate and Bryant Lovette formed a band. Their idea was to craft catchy indie tunes with heavy folk leanings. Their tools were their acoustic guitars, their powerful voices, and their mutual yearning for truth, beauty, and love in music. Together, they invited John Reardon and Matthew Kilby to take part in their adventure.
Drawing influence from bands such as Of Monsters and Men, The Head and the Heart, and Mumford & Sons, Embers End seeks to breathe life into the folk genre while creating a sound which can be described as acoustic indie folk.
A duo of natural storytellers, Pate and Lovette weave their voices together with thrilling vibrancy. Reardon compliments the two with a third voice, the voice of his amber-toned instrument, the cello. As for Kilby, Embers End marches to the beat of his drumming.
Embers End is a group of dreamers desirous of company. Join us and we’ll share a dream together.
