City Island is an NYC-based soft rock meets soul pop band composed of lifelong friends Nick Pretel and Josh Anthony. With inspirations ranging from Coldplay and Sam Smith to Queen and Sam Cooke, they aim to unite people by communicating their experiences of joy, camaraderie, and the spectrum of all emotions with those around them. In the fall of 2019, Nick and Josh performed in front of a live NYC audience under the name City Island, paying tribute to their unwearying friendship. Several performances of catchy covers later, they have continued to hone their skills. You can check out City Island on their Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok.
