The Doug Berns Band
The Doug Berns Band
Doug Berns Band is a metallic power trio from NYC. Founded and fronted by bassist, singer and songwriter Doug Berns (EMEFE, The YeahTones), the band features Sean Salant (AwakenTheShadow, Nova Lantern) on guitar and Coleman Bartels on drums.

Born and raised in New York City, Doug began as a metalhead, learning Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath riffs while jumping up and down in his childhood bedroom at the age of 12. He was fascinated by the way that heavy music exorcised his anxieties and fears and cleansed his soul. He continued to pursue his passion for music, becoming known for his fat tone and unbridled BassFace in New York City and touring throughout the world.

As 2018 dawned, Doug decided that he was finally ready to record an album of his own compositions. Through muscular riffs, soaring guitar leads, thick rhythmic pockets and gripping vocal hooks, he sought to provide that same feeling of catharsis, solace and release that he felt listening and jamming along to his favorite music as kid. Sean brought his razor sharp guitar precision and boundless creativity to the fray, and Coleman added his thunderous drumset attack and dazzling technique to create the sound, power and energy that is the Doug Berns Band.

The first single, "It Gets to You" will be released on July 10th, followed by the debut 9-track album "Outlier" in the fall of 2018.
Wooing
Wooing
Wooing is NYC's newest psychedelic band. Formed by Rachel Trachtenburg in early 2016. The sound is inspired by 60's Syd Barrett vibes meets Helium and The Breeders. Wooing just finished recording with producer Bryce Goggin. The premier EP DayDream Time Machine has songs about freeing the whales at SeaWorld and the 1950's LSD experiment on housewives. Rachel met Wooing's guitarist JR Thomason while she was a guest backup singer for the
low-fi legend R Stevie Moore. With Rachel's background in music (starting with playing the drums at age six in her family's band The Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players) and JR's experimental rock influences their new band has a very original sound. Rosie Slater on drums pulls the three piece all together.
Sincere vocals matched with trippy echoing guitars, Wooing will sweep you off your feet.
