Alchemilla
Alchemilla
Female fronted Alchemilla is a mix of old and new influences including Soundgarden, Billie Holiday, Neil Young and Amy Winehouse. Think 70’s guitar meets 90’s angst. If Sylvia Plath and Jimmy Page had a bare-knuckled brawl then shared drinks with The Doors and Sleater-Kinney, Alchemilla would be playing in the background.

Jen Kearney
Jen Kearney
Boston born Jen Kearney has spent a lot of time experimenting with seasoning her particular musical style and flavor. Her latest album, Age of Blame is truly an amalgam of musical styles ranging from soul, R&B and funk- to rock, latin and jazz, while maintaining a singer/songwriter’s attention to lyrics. Her band stirs the eight cuts of the album through boiling points and gentle simmers that concentrate that flavor down to hit all points salty, sour, sweet and bitter.

In a pre-release review from Jed Gottlieb of the Boston Herald, Kearney’s “…booming soul voice and smart, tight songs provide the pillars of the eight tunes. But her band adds some awesome voodoo.”

Lyrically, Age of Blame offers deeply personal and hopeful perspective on a myriad of subjects—the main theme being the importance of maintaining balance and love in an ever-evolving world where blame, fear, self-sabotage and deflection are all too easy to succumb to as human contact has receded.

Kearney worked with Peter MacLean on drums, Aaron Bellamy on bass, Amy Bellamy on clavinet and B3 organ, Jason Yost on guitar, Mark Mullins on trumpet and flugelhorn, Jared Sims on saxophone, and Yahuba on percussion.
Bigfoot
Bigfoot
Get up! That groove you are hearing coming out of the woods is the legendary big, bad, Bigfoot. Funk \ R&B. Shaking dance floors everywhere!
Cruel Miracle
Cruel Miracle
Hailing from Boston, four-piece rock and roll band, Cruel Miracle, is serving powerhouse vocals, killer guitar leads and tons of soul in their energetic debut album, ‘Manifesto.’ Vocalist Sadie Vada, Guitarist Sir-Ken Celli, Bassist Charlie Black and Drummer Luis Castellanos offer a sound reminiscent of Guns & Roses, Led Zeppelin, and The Doors, but with a fresh perspective. Cruel Miracle is classic rock with a sense of danger and romance that has been long absent from the music scene. Touring the East Coast since their 2014 formation, Cruel Miracle aims to deliver rock and roll realness to a hungry audience.

Scott Damgaard and Ben Knight
Scott Damgaard and Ben Knight
I was born Scott John Damgaard at St. Joseph's Hospital in Milwaukee Wisconsin to my proud parents, Darrell Eugene (Ed) Damgaard and Jean Ann (Synstad) Damgaard (now Schuler). I am a Scorpio who is half Danish, one quarter Norwegian, an eighth German, and another eighth which is a mix of English, Irish, and Scottish.

Yes, I'm a mutt, and I come from a long line of farmers, vikings, pirates and musicians...

I'm a musician who sings and plays guitar, but once in awhile I'm all those other things as well. I've moved around a bit, living in Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, California, and now Massachusetts. I've been to over 30 states in the U.S.A., as well as parts of Canada and Mexico, some of the islands around Cuba, and several countries in Europe.

In the fall of 1988 I moved to Boston and since then I must've played well over 2,000 shows, plus I've written and recorded many of my own songs, not to mention I also play and sing about 500 cover songs from Buddy Holly to Bush and Beyond. In addition to playing solo shows, I'm involved in at least three bands right now, but I'll tell you more about that later...
