Alex Sepassi (Vocals/Guitars/Synths/Programming)
Justin Alvis (Drums)

Silver Relics continues to resonate with their listeners and to extend their reach since they began performing on New York stages in late 2017. Their live performance and style has often been compared to their artistic influences: Depeche Mode, The Cure, Duran Duran, Joy Division, The Verve, The Stone Roses, Cocteau Twins, Pink Floyd and The Beatles.
Johnny & the Bootlegs
Johnny & the Bootlegs
Born of the core essence that drives the writing of John Santiago, creator and founder of JSanti Music, Johnny & The Bootlegs are an NYC Blues-Punk-Rock outfit dedicated to the idea of creating good time, alcohol infused, soul inspired, rock n roll. With straightforward chord progressions, catchy melodies, and blazing guitar solos, the band provides a high energy performance that gets any crowd in undeniable motion.

Having completed their first 9 track EP, Johnny & The Bootlegs are currently focused on developing their brand and promotion through content release and upcoming touring. With cited influence from ZZ Top, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Soundgarden and Sublime, the songs on the EP are reminiscent of the sounds and stylings of such classic artists. 2017 has been all about refining the craft of J&TB’s live performance. With numerous shows under their belt in NYC, J&TB is gaining momentum toward touring and out of state gigs with like minded venues, festivals and brands throughout the coming year.
Rebel Kicks
Rebel Kicks
Anthony and Steven Babino are Rebel Kicks, an alternative rock outfit from New York City. Edgy and clever, yet fun and catchy, the multi-layered music that Rebel Kicks creates is instantly, and undeniably memorable. Their unique sound and style fuses elements of rock, pop, electronica, & hip-hop, along with the incredible harmonic blend of the brothers' voices.

Given their father's career as a professional musician, music has always been a part of Anthony and Steven's lives, so it was only natural that they would follow in his footsteps. "From as far back as I can remember", says Anthony, "music has always been a constant. We grew up around the business, watching and learning from our Dad. Music is everything to us - we eat, sleep, and drink it."

Born and raised in New York City, the duo have been "performing together since we started talking", according to Steve. "It's what we do, it's who we are." Over the years, the brothers have become known for their electrifying, energetic live performances. “We want people to leave our live shows not only excited by our music, but also feeling energized, and good vibes from the experience.”

Rebel Kicks spent the majority of 2017 between New York and Los Angeles, writing, recording and producing their debut EP, due out later this year. “We got the chance to work and collaborate with some really incredible songwriters and producers on this EP”, says Anthony, including industry veterans Jason Pennock (2pac/Polyenso/The Pussycat Dolls), Abe Dertner, Jeff Blue (Macy Gray/Hoobastank/Korn/Linkin Park), Russ DeSalvo (Lou Reed/Celine Dion/Lionel Richie), and Jimmy Greco (Paramore/Santana). "We're really excited about the new songs! We feel like we've truly found our voice as an artist, and honed in on a sound that’s ours; we can't wait to share it with everyone."
Mörk (Budapest, Hungary)
Psychedelic Soul

A hand-drawn circle with a line on top introducing a sound you wouldn’t expect from Hungary, that is
too catchy to be Jazz,
too diverse to be Pop,
too groovy to be Indie,
too trippy to be Funk,
too deep to be party,
yet too weird to be taken seriously.

Mörk’s explosive Soul and Funk based performance is a musical journey through a micro-universe of different styles, sounds, emotions, stories, characters and philosophical questions. Uncompromised self-expression, improvisation and audience participation are always to be expected!
