Ess See
Ess See
ESS SEE is Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Sarah Cobb. Cobb began producing her electro-pop demos in 2009 alone in her bedroom at night—honing in on uniquely addictive and seductive melodies often featuring themes dealing with identity, intimacy, and femininity. Embracing lyrical influences St. Vincent, Emily Haines, Carole King, and Garbage—ESS SEE delivers a heightened sense of vulnerability and intimacy in her songwriting. Her rich, often theatrical, live performances engage audiences with eye-popping costumes, humor, and an electric presence. Her debut EP, "Ordinary Woman" was released in 2017, and her first full length album will be available in 2019.
The More
The More
The More has been quietly brewing a distinct brand of dark pop and “Opium-den-Americana” since hitting the scene in 2018. Taking inspiration in everything from techno to punk rock, the project, helmed by Chris Fawcett with Alex Topornycky on guitar, independently released a debut single in 2018 igniting support from streaming giant Tidal, and several indie publications. With a sound marked by contrasts and timbral duality, The More is hard at work on a debut album while making the rounds in the New York underground.
RaFia
RaFia
"RaFiA is a Brooklyn-raised multidisciplinary artist that slickly weaves her sultry layered vocals into self produced beats, pausing only to take a breath to deliver sharp rhymes.

Mixing jazz, funk, and rap, RaFiA chronicles her experiences surviving an aggressively-gentrifying New York City while not being paid her due as the hyper-talented Black femme she is.

From Photoshop to the stage, RaFiA is in charge of how she’s seen. Engineering her own super-saturated audio-reactive projections, she has appeared at MoMA PS1 Sunday Sessions, Knitting Factory, Times Square, Mana Contemporary Miami, and countless DIY venues and art spaces."
Coyote Eyes
Coyote Eyes
Coyote Eyes is the dark pop alter ego of Jo Eubanks, a multi-disciplinary artist out of New York City. Her haunting vocals, jarring lyrics, and cinematic soundscapes are, like her, equally tragic and seductive.

Eubanks has bubbled under the radar for longer than you think. She began training as a classical singer at age 11, and by 16 she was already sparking label interest for her unusual, emotionally-charged voice. Execs described her as having the pain of a 30 year old woman trapped inside a child's body.

Dubbed a "young Sylvia Plath", Eubanks broke from her sugary pop contemporaries and leaned into her writing, developing a poetically evocative lyrical style.

Drawing influence from her classical background as well as the 90s grunge movement, it's no surprise that Coyote Eyes is often compared to the likes of Dolores O'Riordan, Alanis Morisette, and Shirley Manson.

In 2018, the Coyote Eyes project emerged from Eubanks' fascination with duality in all its forms, which she explores both sonically and thematically. She states: "The coyote represents the wild paradox existing within myself, within us all. Each and every one of us navigates the world as both predator and prey."

Less than 6 months after her debut release (produced by Ableton sound designer I AM SNOW ANGEL), The Coyote Eyes project has quickly picked up steam. Her May performance at iHeart Radio Live Sessions led to a multi track placement on DJ A-Ron’s Top of the List Apple Music Playlist.

Coyote Eyes' debut EP, Love in the Time of Melancholia, is set to release this fall.
