"Olya Viglione took a leap of faith when at twenty-one she left Moscow for New York City with just a backpack and a dream of making music. Landing on the Lower East Side, she immersed herself in the city’s music scene playing keyboard and touring with Jesse Malin, sharing the stage with Urge Overkill, Clem Burke (Blondie), Wayne Kramer. It was after a show at a rock club on the Bowery that Olya met drummer Brian Viglione (Dresden Dolls, Violent Femmes, Nine Inch Nails), a meeting that would prove to be fateful for both of them.

Their chemistry was immediate with Brian bringing life to the songs that Olya had been writing. Before long, the two formed Scarlet Sails, rounding out the line up with guitarist Mark Kohut and bassist Kevin Jones. Centered around Olya’s sultry, power-house vocals, Scarlet Sails craft an elaborate blend of rock & pop, with uniquely catchy melodies, passionate and reflective lyrics and an undeniable swagger that has drawn comparisons to artists as diverse as David Bowie, Nico, Radiohead and Oasis.

In April 2017 Scarlet Sails released their debut Future from the Past to critical acclaim, with Consequence of Sound premiering the album and Impose Magazine lauding the band’s “pure rock n’ roll vibes”. The band supported the release with three national tours and a New Year's Eve show in Moscow.

January 2018 saw Scarlet Sails head back to the studio with producer, Ben Rice (Norah Jones, The Candles, Elliot & the Ghost) to begin work on a series of singles to release this year. "

NY-based multi-cultural genre-bending Duo Frenchy and the Punk are made up of Hardcore Punk veteran guitarist Scott Helland (bassist of Deep Wound - with J Mascis and Lou Barlow, Outpatients) and French-born singer/percussionist Samantha Stephenson. They pound out their distinctive brand of Cabaret Folk Punk. Helland's signature rhythmic and melodic guitar looping style creates a driving and expansive sonic landscape that perfectly blends with Stephenson's powerful vocals and percussion.
