Haley Bowery and the Manimals
Haley Bowery and the Manimals
NYC post-glam/powerpop band Haley Bowery & the Manimals stands out in the oversaturated rock scene with their deeply felt, personal lyrics and memorable hooks. Haley's voice is authentic and expressive, electric with raw emotionality, begging comparison to Chrissie Hynde and Joan Jett. A vision in false eyelashes and high heels, she is one part girly-girl and two parts Brooklyn badass, a punk rock spirit indelibly shaped by the great writers of folk and American standards. On a dime she can channel Courtney Love at her most aggressive or Regina Spektor at her most intimate, but her love of language is always unmistakable. Among her influences, she counts Liz Phair, Patti Smith, Bruce Springsteen, The Pretenders, No Doubt, Blondie and The Breeders.

Haley released her debut EP as a solo artist, Side of the Hill, in March 2011. Following the release, she toured North America for two months with singer-songwriter Matthew Pop, playing her songs solo and acoustic. She is now back in New York, performing with her band, The Manimals- and is starting to get noticed for her ferocious stage presence and the explosive, wild live experience she shares with her audience at every show. At a Haley Bowery & the Manimals show, you can expect costume changes, whiskey swilling, profanity-laden crowd baiting, and a serious throwback to the energy and thrill of 70s-era CBGBs. The band recently completed recording their first full-length album, Born Strange, at The Brewery Recording Studio in Brooklyn. It will be released in June 2012.
Hannah vs. The Many
Hannah vs. The Many
Hannah vs. The Many consists of Brooklyn singer/songwriter/antiheroine Hannah Fairchild and some of the more musically inclined members of her beloved urban family.

Hannah originally moved to New York City expecting to find work and meaning in the city's seedy underground indie musical theater community, which, as it turns out, doesn't actually exist. After two years of being rejected by every possible elementary school tour, Hannah said "fuck this" and started writing her own material.

Her lyrics are rooted in her musical theater background, with acerbic, rapid-fire observations that reflect her childhood obsession with Stephen Sondheim. Musically, she bends genres at will, blending influences from Kate Bush to The Replacements to Leslie Gore. Hannah's songs tell stories of heartbreak, hook-ups, drunken victories, narrow escapes, and all the other "pretty little tragedies" that come with being young and broke in the greatest city in the world.

Hannah recorded her first album Paper Kingdoms alone in her apartment, while recovering from a broken ankle and a long string of terrible choices (they know who they are). Weary of belting solo, Hannah began gathering some talented and like-minded friends and playing with them at venues around the city. Her second album, All Our Heroes Drank Here recorded at Brooklyn's Royal Drag Studios, was released January 17th, 2012.
Teen Girl Scientist Monthly
Teen Girl Scientist Monthly
Bred and born on the windswept shores of Brooklyn, NY, Teen Girl Scientist Monthly jangle, stomp and spark, spitting sunny guitars, anthemic shout-a-longs and fuzzy garage pop by the hat-full. They just released Modern Dances - an LP of sharp shout-a-longs and bright light head-bangers.

TGSM’s infectious sound (a la Unicorns and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah!) is Morgan Lynch’s feral yowl, Matt Berger’s antsy chicken wire lyre, and the pure low purr of Master Gliva’s thick strings, all made the more merry on the wings of Mel Lusk and Pete Scalzitti’s synthetic suites and the pummel Daniel Muhlenberg's skins and rims. They like drinking and they like dancing.
Madison Cano
Madison Cano
Madison Cano is building an empire of love.
At least that's what the singer-songwriter is aiming for.

Cano grew up in Southern California, but she claims the majority of her influences come from the years she spent living in New York City. She moved there at 18 to attend New York University and fell in love with the downtown music scene. On the Lower East Side, Cano began to define the sound she is recognized for as having whimsical melodies, catchy hooks and a voice that leaves crammed audiences at a stand still.

In 2009, a job opportunity led her to Madrid, where after a year of playing the indie circuit as an acoustic singer/songwriter, she formed the self-titled band with musicians Sergio Valdehita, Tony Cabo, Sergio Alarcón and Pablo Ruiz. Word quickly spread about the band, drawing media attention for their dynamic live performances, heartfelt melodies, and Madison's powerful vocals, which critics have hailed as "jaw droppingly beautiful" and "simply magical".

The band teamed up in the summer of 2010 to record Madison's first album, which was tracked in Segovia and later finished in New York. Under the production supervision of Josh Fox at Royal Drag Studios, and with the help of engineer Mikhail Pivovarov and Carriage House Studios, the highly anticipated CD, "Pulleys, Levers, and Other Simple Machines", was finally released in June 2011 with some of their most popular songs, including "We Might Survive", "Let Her Run", "Autumn Song" and "Float".
