The Liza Colby Sound
The Liza Colby Sound
These days The Liza Colby Sound is on twin new missions, blowing minds nationally and internationally with a packed calendar of tour dates, and warping brains with a new strain of heavy, freak-out rock. Jump on the rocket ship live, or trip out on a dose of LCS at home with the band’s full-length debut, Object To Impossible Destination, out spring 2019.

The Liza Colby Sound is Liza Colby vocals, seduction, shamanistic powers; Jay Shepard, guitar; Alec Morton, bass; and Charly Roth, drums. This year has been a milestone for the band as they’ve voyaged throughout the U.S., Japan, and Europe, playing packed and sold-out shows along the way. Previously, the band has issued three well-received EPs.

The Liza Colby Sound features seasoned musicians welding decades of experience with resumes that include working with Ozzy Osbourne, Rick Derringer, Edgar Winter, Raging Slab, Suzanne Vega, Garland Jeffreys, Lenny Kaye, Jim Carroll Band, the Del Fuegos (featuring Dan Zanes), Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge, Ozzy Osbourne, Jeff Beck), Corey Glover (Living Colour), Earl Slick, The Paley Brothers, Enrique Iglesias, Denis Leary, and Joey Ramone, among other well-known names.

Object To Impossible Destination distills down the essence of LCS. Here, the hooks are sharp, and the ensemble playing is spacious and vibey. These attributes are finely displayed on “Shake You” and “Eye On You.” “Shake You” epitomizes the lost art of folding swaggering blues-rock riffs into pop concision. “Eye On You” traverses a thick viscous stoner haze, and proto-metal riffage. Naugahyde boogie thrills abide on “Cool Hand” which recalls the “light and shade” dynamics of Led Zeppelin and the sophisticated melodicism of Cream’s Jack Bruce.

There are many destinations up next for The Liza Colby Sound in 2019, including Stateside and European touring. Like the album’s curious title—a tip of the hat to a sleight of hand trick where an object in one space reappears inexplicably in another distant location— LCS will be spreading its psych-rock magic globally.
Johnny Scuotto
Johnny Scuotto
Johnny Scuotto is a multi instrumentalist currently working on a solo project with an ensemble that consists of stings, horns, percussion and much more. Prior to his solo career he's shared bills with Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson and Martin Rev of 'SUICIDE'. His live performances make for a strange and visceral experience, as if 'Saturday Night Fever's' John Travolta was in 'Night of The Living Dead' with a hint of Prince and Ian Curtis. All in all it makes for an unforgettable show and one that shouldn't be missed.
The Silk War
The Silk War
The Silk War is an Alt-Rock collaboration between music engineer/producer James Mullen (Nine Inch Nails, Interpol, Radio 4) and Alexandra Blair. The Silk War is a 6-piece band including a lead vocalist who plays synth, a guitarist, bassist, keyboardist, drummer, and a violinist/acoustic guitarist. The Silk War’s major influences include The Cure, Amy Winehouse, Arcade Fire, and Radiohead. Alexandra’s raspy voice intertwined with poetic, soulful melodies pairs in a unique way with James’s cinematic orchestration in order to encapsulate the mood and energy of downtown New York City life. The Silk War has wrapped up the recording of their first album “Come Evening” which they plan to release in early 2018. The Silk War has headlined venues in downtown New York such as The Vinyl Room at Soho House NYC, The Ludlow House, Arlene’s Grocery, Mercury Lounge, and The Bowery Electric.
