Lovechild
Lovechild
"Lovechild is five young musicians weaving together inspired and creative roots rock singing and songwriting, vibrant and intricate country-tinged guitar licks, and a hard-nosed but fun loving band with a penchant for wild, psychedelic jam sessions to create what’s been described as “the kind of musical poetry we’ve been missing.”

Led by singer-songwriter and Manhattan native Leo Liebeskind, Lovechild has spent the past 4 years tirelessly gigging around the New York area, while working on demo recordings in bedrooms, basements, and warehouse spaces around the city. After going through a number of personnel changes, the consistent lineup of Woodstock-raised twin brothers Aaron and Wyatt Mones (lead and bass guitar) and Wisconsin-hailing Karl Markgraf VIII and Daryl Cozzi (keys and drums) bring a diverse range of sounds and influences to Liebeskind’s poetic folk rock songs. Acoustic picking and lonesome slide guitar cries are often found morphing into overdriven, psychedelic jams. Slow, soulful ballads are mixed and mashed with up-tempo rockers. And stark, rootsy 70s grooves are often juxtaposed with wild sonic explosions into and beyond the 21st century.

Lovechild has logged countless hours performing at concert halls, dive bars, and DIY basement venues around New York over the past few years, and is prepping it's debut album for a fall 2018 release."
Robbing Johnny
Robbing Johnny
Robbing Johnny is a Harlem based band. They've built a live reputation for high-energy theatrical shows that draw from the Americana roots of hip hop and folk rock. They’ve released Cynical Son EP, Salamander Cool single B-side, and several music videos, all the while collaborating with artists from various disciplines in NYC. Their self-produced debut album, Cold March, will be released September 8th, 2017 at American Beauty.
Ransom Pier
Ransom Pier
Ransom Pier's music offers listeners a combination of potent lyricism and technical prowess that places them firmly among the highest echelon of young acts along the Eastern seaboard. Their brand of rock draws unabashedly on the roots of the American songbook - from Dylan to Motown - with an ear to the future, and has been compared to a darker, edgier Lake Street Dive.
Instant Treeline
Instant Treeline
Instant Treeline is a Brooklyn-based folk rock band, founded in 2016 by Will Leet, a musician and Chris Burns, a poet. In short, their music can be described as "campfire rock with a city groove." All the songs are led by intricate lyrics and acoustic guitar soundscapes, juxtaposing the fast pace of life in New York City and the beckoning call of rural America. Hints of folk, pop, rock, country and Americana styles are found throughout their work. The current lineup features Will Leet on guitar and vocals, Dane Scozzari on drums, Jeff Koch on bass, Stoddard Blackall on keys and Malia Abayon on background vocals. In December of 2016, they released their debut EP, “Morning Songs," which is available on all major streaming services. Over the last year, they have regularly played at Rockwood Music Hall and have toured in Boston, Burlington, Connecticut, and Western MA in support of the EP. Fans of Good Old War, Ryan Adams and Guster will find themselves enjoying Instant Treeline.
