ONE EXTRA COLD NEW YORK CITY WINTER,
Late Slip’s Chelsea Nenni (guitar/vocals) hid in her apartment, wrote a bunch of songs, and decided to move to Los Angeles. Once in LA, she got a job at her fave independent record store, Amoeba Music, and met a musician pal who helped her record the Other Men EP.

Other Men got airplay on a couple local radio stations and the band gained traction with live shows all over LA. They even spent a night supporting iconic new wave / post-punk rockers, Missing Persons, at the famed Whisky A Go-Go.

Standing on that stage, where both Iggy Pop and Gwen Stefani had once stood, Chelsea knew she was ready to go back to New York City. The winters would be cold, but she’d have Iggy-Gwen stardust to protect her.

So, Chelsea moved all her shit back across the country and found a new band in Andrew B. White (bass guitar) and Daryl Cozzi (drums) within two weeks of being back in town. In their first gig together, the band opened for Fred Thomas who was James Brown’s bass player in the 1960’s. He sprinkled some funky pixie dust on them that night and it’s been magic ever since.
Meridian Lights
Meridian Lights
Meridian Lights is an alternative rock and song writing team of vocalist Bradley Valentin and guitarist Yohimbe Sampson. Meridian Lights defies genre with influences of rock, soul, world and electronic music. A masterful fusion of Bradley’s powerhouse vocals with Yohimbe’s feverish guitar, songs touch on trial, optimism, love and sex.

“Who are we, and where do we go from here?” These were the questions on the minds of Kelly and Patrick Morris in late 2016. After bringing to an end a long but successful two and a half year tour, playing venues and music halls from small to large from coast to coast including festivals such as SXSW (twice), Midpoint Music Festival, Sweetwater 420 fest to name a few, and recording a live session with Daytrotter. Garnering new fans and attention from various press outlets along the way they averaged over 250 shows a year all in support of their 2014 debut release “Walking With A Different Stride.”
In the midst of it all, they found themselves coming to terms with the fact that they were not progressing in the ways they felt they needed to with their songwriting, and recording. Between being on the road and living in Chicago it was hard to find a permanent place to work and move forward with their music in the ways they wanted to do.
The brothers packed up and headed back to their home state of South Carolina to find a space conducive to living, writing, and recording without the limitations and pressures of time and money that commercial studios usually entail. They needed a home, somewhere to recuperate and hone the sound and conceptive direction they wanted to take with their next release.
Looms
Looms
Looms consists of Sharif Mekawy (vocals, keys, guitar), Harry Morris Jr. (guitar), A. Hammond Murray (bass) and Louis Cozza (drums). The group’s music is written around vocals and melodic instrumental arrangements with an evolving catalogue that runs the gamut of song construction. Rock, pop, jazz, electronic, folk, and more are dissected and deconstructed down to their basic components, and then reimagined. Looms released their Sophomore LP, How It Has To Be on August 4, 2017 on Little Dickman Records. They are currently in the studio working on their next full length.
