Tops for me is his gospel-fueled offering "The Good Lord Smote My Eye."

For fans of: Joni Mitchell, Lizz Wright, Kate Bush, Tracy Chapman

An experienced singer from Prague, Czech republic, performing her original music. Martina Fiserova has been surrounded by musicians since the moment she was born. It took her many years to realize and accept the fact that she was becoming a musician herself. After a decade spent gaining experience on the Prague Jazz Scene (from blues and fusion oriented bands to collaborations with international bands, backing up rock stars and diving into silence with music therapy), she decided to get her ass kicked by New York City. Come check out her unique songwriting approach and intimate yet emotional vocal performance.

“Her voice is graceful, and her phrasing and delivery are right on tempo.” - James Nadal, All About Jazz

“Her biography is impressive. (...) Jazz pop? Folk jazz? Either way it's cool, and if this is the sort of stuff she is capable of writing then I hope there is more on the way.” - Tony Emmerson, Prague Jazz Blogspot

Genre: Soul
For fans of: Jeff Buckley, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, Robert Glasper

I'm a rabid fan of music like jazz and blues and folk and funk and soul and anything that sounds good. And thus, I interpret my perception of all of the history of sound and music and the current vibes I'm getting through my guitar (and voice) to you. A singer as well as a songwriter, I guess you could call me a...singer/songwriter? Or something.


“James Margolis is a unique musician. He is a guitarist, a composer, and a multi-instrumentalist. After moving to NYC, he has played shows at venues like: The Bitter End, Arlene's Grocery..."-theloaferonline.com

Robinson Treacher is a uniquely emotional singer/songwriter whose live shows are focused on passionate performance combined with equally passionate lyrics.

9pm- Zuni Mountain Boys
The Zuni Mountain Boys are an Americana duo based out of Brooklyn. Connor McGinnis and Matt Campbell formed the group in early 2014. They recorded their first EP in East Nashville in late May over two days, and released it via bandcamp in August 2014. The five song EP consists predominantly of two acoustic guitars, and two part harmonies with Connor singing the leads, and Matt accompanying. Dobro and piano are the only other accents on the recording, leaving the sound spare, with little more than is necessary to deliver the song. The lyrics hesitate to dip into the abstract, and instead paint the sound with ordinary images that allow the listener to arrive at something larger on their own.

THURSDAY 1/29
8pm- Daniel Rylander
Genre: Acoustic/Alternative/Indie/Folk Rock
For fans of: City & Colour, John Mayer, Ed Sheeran, Ben Folds, Relient K, This Wild Life.

Rockin’ smooth tunes with catchy licks that are sure to get stuck in your head. A nice blend of new and old themes with lyrics that come straight from the heart, mind, and soul. Hopelessly romantic with everything to prove, offering a new take on an age-old theme which is seemingly timeless. A refreshingly new but familiar sound which captivates listeners both young and old. A little musical something that everyone can relate to and take with them that will put a smile on their face.

“[Daniel] Rylander, a drummer by trade who taught himself piano, guitar and a few other instruments, packs the album’s [Strawberry Skyline] 13 tracks with his high emotionally charged tenor to keening melodies that recall other singer/songwriters such as Ben Folds and ’90s emo-kings Dashboard Confessional.
 

"Love seems to be the overriding theme of the 63-minute work, be it abusive, forlorn, lost, brand new or all consuming. Rylander’s got a lot to say about relationships both interpersonal and familial.”
  
“[Daniel] Rylander’s musical talent, his way with a sing-songy melody and the cool instrumental touches that beef up his arrangements should garner him some attention and fans.”
 

-- Above quotes taken from Malcolm X Abram’s review of Strawberry Skyline in the Akron Beacon Journal on Oct. 4, 2013.

“My favorite act of the night came next. Daniel Rylander is a singer/songwriter from Akron, Ohio who released his debut album [Strawberry Skyline] last September and it is nice. I’ve listened to it at least 5 times since Friday night. I even had it playing while I was at work and every person that came into the room commented on how good it was. [Daniel] Rylander touches on a wide variety of genres from indie rock to country and blues. It’s hard not to find at least one song that you like. Plus his voice is amazing. It’s fresh, young, and a bit soulful.” -Taken from Tea Time with the Mad Artist : blog by Akron-area blogger and photographer, Bronlynn Thurman on Jan. 19, 2014.

The way music is supposed to be. A good time celebration with organic instruments; banjo, mandolin, acoustic guitar and Bob the upright bass. Y'all should come!

9pm- Golden Alphabet
Genre: Indie Psychedelic Folk
For fans of: Modest Mouse, Cat Stevens, Bright Eyes

Mostly consistent of transplants from the desert of Tucson, Arizona, Golden Alphabet has reformed it’s live line-up here, in the center of the universe, Brooklyn, New York. Based on the song writing of singer, Tommy Cormier, Golden Alphabet stylistically changes along with Cormier’s short attention span. The band’s lyrically driven music shifts from indie folk, to psychedelic, to baroque pop.    

Review of our 1st record, "A List of Our Worries":
The album contains 10 tracks that fall under the wide-ranging category of indie rock, though there are variations in sound. After a minute-plus as a ramshackle instrumental, opening track "Visionary Quest" morphs into what sounds like a passage from a long-lost rock opera—it wouldn't sound out of place on The Wall—with Cormier singing, "If I'm just a little boy with a stick in his eye, I'll never be a Jesuit / I am self-deny." After a little synth-led passage, it leads smoothly into "This Cactus Country," a chugging little tune with a big sound (fun game: count the instruments!) and a gorgeously melancholy melody. The lyrics on the album, which are largely above-par, carry the weight of melancholy, too: "I've been buying into salesmanship / 'Good job! You know, you're really doing well' / I wonder how long Humpty Dumpty sat there / I wonder how long before he fell."  If I had to pithily describe the overall vibe of A List of Our Worries, I'd say it's like an indie-folk take on what Modest Mouse or Arcade Fire does (with Bright Eyes in there, too), but that's selling it short, especially when a song like "Me Lovely," the bulk of which resembles no one so much as the Tom Tom Club, comes on."  -Stephen Seigel, Tucson Weekly

“The vocals are unique, they are kinda a mix between Madonna and Katy Perry.”  -ReverbNation January 2nd, 2015

His current band, At The Moment, performs stripped-down, heartfelt pop-rock set aloft by Stampfel’s unique voice. Stampfel is also a current member of Michael T and the Vanities.

“Beautifully produced and amazingly lush and rich crossover\fusion music. Titles and lyrics tend to be playful, and the whole has an innovative feel that is seldom equaled in self-produced music.” – Factsheet Five

On the lushly-arranged and folksy “So Obscure,” he lays his heart on the line between bathos and beauty.” —KDHX

"An acoustic artist who challenges the notions of wood, strings, and sentiment . . . Just as much a slap in the face of your "folky" values as it is an embrace of humanity song, craft, and experiment." -- Jason Medina (Producer/Promoter, Transient Authority)

"Jeff Andrade's musical project Hamin Reed goes unparalleled in its diversity of sound and talent. His voice is warm and heartbreaking on ballads and he can rock harder than any hardcore musician I've seen. The lyrics are thought provoking and emotionally moving to whimsically entertaining. Hamin Reed crosses a plethora of genres with a facility that does not make their performances seem disjointed. It is to say that whilst traversing through a variety of styles, there exists a continuity that is never lacking. Hamin Reed is an act that defines what more acts in current state should be, talented, creative and entertaining." -- Daniel Ouellette (Performance Artist, Daniel Ouellette and the Shobijin)

"Get inside the head and heart of one of the most evoking songwriters I have ever encountered. Genius insight to the world and who we are in it. I've been everywhere from Bluebird Cafe in Nashville to The Bitter End in NYC listening to hundreds of songwriters and none have been quite as prodigious as Jeff. He has inspired and ignited me as both a listener and a producer-songwriter. He has been an exquisite new addition to my ipod as well as an amazing addition to my life as a friend. Check him out. You will not regret it." -- Nicole Berkowitz (Producer-songwriter, The Willow Tree)

“Sherman keeps the waking edge billowing and free of sticky inertia. Like everything else here, it’s a rich smoky mix of the earthy and the ethereal, both sides working together for escape in tandem.”- http://mratavist.com/2013/03/02/chris-shermansandalwood-haze/

Come check out her unique songwriting approach and intimate yet emotional vocal performance.

“Her voice is graceful, and her phrasing and delivery are right on tempo.” - James Nadal, All About Jazz

“Her biography is impressive. (...) Jazz pop? Folk jazz? Either way it's cool, and if this is the sort of stuff she is capable of writing then I hope there is more on the way.” - Tony Emmerson, Prague Jazz Blogspot

11pm- Peter Wise
Genre: alt pop/folk
For fans of: Jeff Buckley, Matt Corby, Allen Stone, Gary Clark Jr.

Singer/songwriter Peter Wise (ASCAP) has a lifelong passion for music, playing guitar and piano for over 16 years. A 2014 graduate of NYU, Wise’s sound has been described as alt pop and folk/soul, fusing a wide variety of musical genres to make his own pop/rock style. Blending the early '70s folk/rock lyricism and the modern indie/rock soundscapes and production, Wise’s sound has been compared from everyone from Jeff Buckley and Paul Simon to John Mayer, Bon Iver, and Matt Corby. Studying music at NYU connected him with some of the industries’ best. He studied privately with award winning and multi Grammy-nominated songwriter Phil Galdston and opened for iconic American band The Eagles at a sold-out Beacon Theater in November 2012.

Firmly entrenched in the New York music scene for the past four years, Wise played a full Studio At Webster Hall in support of Green River Ordinance on their North American tour and is a frequent player at Rockwood Music Hall, Arlene’s Grocery, as well as The Bitter End, where he held the release party for his album When Day Breaks on Saturday, November 23rd, 2013. With a fan base fast increasing, Wise was a featured performer at Musikfest on the Martin Guitar Lyrikplatz stage in August 2014, and recently played to packed audiences in Boston.

Brooklyn-based Wise continues to perform throughout the New York City area, and has started to expand his fanbase, with upcoming shows in St. Louis and Illinois.

After releasing a four-song EP entitled Don’t Walk Away in October of 2012, Wise spent the summer of 2013 working on his debut LP When Day Breaks, released in November of 2013.  He has now started licensing music featured on both release to TV shows, most recently with the show Bring Your Own Board – Orange County. Wise continues to work on release new music, with his newest single, Quiet, out this past October.

“On his latest album, When Day Breaks, Peter Wise fuses the upbeat songwriting like that of Simon & Garfunkel with the wistful yearnings of classic folk and Americana. Opening with ‘To Be Free’, it’s clear that Peter Wise has the musical chops and writing sensibilities to put together an engaging track. Laced with lap steel and heartwarming descending basslines, there are plenty of treats to be found along the way, with snappy guitar work and head-bobbing dropped beats.” – Chris Marsh, Skope Mag

“Hailing from Boston, Peter Wise, currently living in NYC impressed us with his strong jazz and indie rock influences within his music. From first listening to his track “Hatteras” I immediately saw the striking influences of John Mayer-esque guitar picking, mixed with the tambor and harmonies from Bon Iver. Selecting Peter’s music for the show was a no brainer.” – BYOB Artist Spotlight

For fans of: Little Richard, Sam Cooke, The Coasters, Stax Records, Junior Walker, Los Lobos, The Band

David Luther is a saxophonist, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist hailing from Michigan, and residing in Brooklyn. A pursuit of jazz eventually yielded to the carnal delights of rhythm n' blues and rock n' roll, especially that of the early days when shuffle was king, dancing was all but compulsory, and a honking saxophone reigned as the original lead guitar. The love and reverence for this music has informed a number of projects over the years, including the most current, The Free Alternatives: a loose confederation of like-minded musicians on a lifelong quest for indelible grooves and deep pockets. David has been a member of Meat Loaf's band for seven years, involving a number of world tours, TV appearances, and recently, a residency in Las Vegas. He has also appeared with Bettye Lavette, Katy Perry, Jimmy McGriff, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Reuben Wilson, The Temptations, Clarence Clemmons, and the Easy Star All-Stars.

Genre: Indie Rock
For fans of: Dirty Projectors, Stereolab, American Analog Set, Talk Talk, Real Estate

DREAM BOSS is a promising, consonant four-piece band based in New York. Armed with three-part vocal harmonies, electric swells, and non-traditional rhythms, DREAM BOSS draws influence from all music that has ever come before it order to echo-locate the elusive emotional core of human experience. Will they find it?
 

“Flanked by dueling guitar lines dialed in from a lost Cap’n Jazz track, “Memorize” only gets odder once the baritone vocals emerge and force the Edwyn Collins comparison. But the melody on “Memorize” is dreamier than anything Collins did during Orange Juice’s prime; less breathless than “Rip It Up” and more self-assured than “Falling and Laughing,” this is a stylishly cocky slice of indie pop. “ –OVRLD.com, in reference to previous EP
