City Island are a new psych rock trio from Brooklyn formed in 2022 playing original indie songs locally.

Gigi Santos originally from Austin, Texas, Gigi Santos moved to NYC to pursue her music career. Gigi describes her sound to be a cross of Alina Baraz, Sabrina Claudio, and Sade, best categorized as Alternative R&B. With a background in chorus and music composition, Gigi is able to stack intricate harmonies over a textured production and vivid lyrics, creating a dreamy atmosphere for the listener. She released her debut EP “Sounds of Love” in November of 2019 and her most recent project “Mercury Ocean” with Brooklyn-based producer, Rodney Hazard in May of 2021. “Mercury Ocean” strays away from her usual jazzy R&B quality and moved into a “melodic trap” sound, showing just how versatile Gigi’s style is.

Sammie King Samuel Laurent (Sammie King) a rapper & spoken word artist from Brooklyn, NY who uses his gifts and talents to spread positivity and to inspire others. Sammie uses his Christian faith and life experiences in a way that not only inspires and attracts young people but people of all ages. Sammie stumbled into his faith after a house fire at the age of 14 led him and his family to seek shelter at a local church next door on New Year's Day. While there, he was able to express his gifts through the various art programs provided. At the age of 16, Sammie had fully devoted his life to Christ & accepted the mantle to spread hope through his words. While in college Sammie started releasing original music. He self produced his first EP “New State of Mind” and followed with two more small projects. While in school Sammie majored in Television & Radio, and minored in Marketing with the goal of one day establishing his own entertainment company.
