The Citizens

“The band members, Jason DiMatteo, Thom Loubet, Mark Lesseraux and John Bollinger have crafted a blend of pop and rock that not only draws on a variety of styles, but blends them into something wholly unique. The Citizens shouldn’t be missed!” Jennifer Patton – Adequacy.Net

Optimus Tribe

Optimus Tribe is Srikala and Aloka. Conscious Hip-Hop, with a taste of kirtan and dubstep.

Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber

A multiracial jam army that freestyles with cool telekinesis between the lustrous menace of Miles Davis On The Corner, the clash-an-om of 1970s King Crimson, and Jimi Hendrick moonwalk across side three of electric Landyland.”Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber

Carl Hancock Rux

“Carl Hancock Rux’s work crosses the disciplines of poetry, theater, music and literary fiction in order to achieve what one critic describes ” as a dizzying oral artistry….unleashing a torrent of paper bag poetry and post modern Hip-Bop music; the ritualistic blues of self awakening.”

A Chicago native, Matt Kanelos studied classical and jazz piano at Chicago Musical College before moving to New York City. Matt’s lyrical stylings and minimalist musical aesthetic bring to mind influences like Neil Young, Bob Dylan , Leonard Cohen, and Cat Power. Performing regularly in New York, he has collaborated with Noe Venerable, Rose Polenzani, Jenifer Jackson, Roland Satterwhite, and Jason Liebman as well as members of Califone and Elysian Fileds. In 2008, Matt formed the band The Smooth Maria with Ben Gallina, Conor Meehan, and Kyle Sanna. Their first full length CD, ” Silent Show,” was released in May of 2009.
