Bedroom

Bedroom band is an indie rock group hailing from Brooklyn, New York that combines elements of folk-rock and 60s pop.
The band’s mission is to create songs that are equal parts joyful and introspective. It started as a few friends practicing in an NYC bedroom, and took off when lead singer-songwriters Lee Kaplowitz and Jared Levinson met at the hospital where they both worked. Rounded out by bassist Josh Tauber, drummer Dan Fleishaker, and violinist Zahrah Taufique, they’ve taken their music out of the bedroom and into the world

Tom Curless & the 46%

Tom Curless is a Detroit area based musician and songwriter who has released several critically acclaimed records over his long career. As well as establishing himself within the Chicago music scene in the early 2000’s, he released seven records under the moniker Your Gracious Host. Tom finally found a band in 2017 which coalesced around the last record which he released under his own name called Songs of Movement. Made up of talented musicians from the Detroit music scene who all are established in their own bands, they christened themselves Tom Curless & the 46%. They gelled quickly and played many successful shows supporting that release all over the midwest.

This rocking unit headed into Tempoermill studios with producer Dave Feeny last year to record some new songs. They just wrapped a brand new album due out in spring 2020 called Almost ready for the Future which will be released (once again) on Detroit based label Futureman records. It is a full band effort and displays a more “live in the studio” approach than previous releases  and all the better for it.

Jake Benjamin

Originally from Saddle River, NJ, indie-alternative artist Jake Benjamin’s overall sensibility is a “beyond pop” aesthetic that favors evocative feelings and engaging storylines over punchy pop songcraft. He is equally comfortable composing with a loop pedal and working songs out through leading large and small band ensembles. Jake was at a personal and artistic crossroads when he wrote his latest body of work, collectively known as Broken Stars. This artistically adventurous and boldly vulnerable opus was inspired by reading The Letters of Vincent van Gogh, a collection of correspondences from Van Gogh to his brother, Theo.

“I decided that the songs on this record should tie into themes of the psyche and the human spirit,” the NYC-based artist details. “Some of the songs were written from famous artists’ quotes, and others were written from my own experiences with anxiety, depression, relationships, and sexuality.” He continues: “Today, I’m open to showing all the aspects of my life, including my queerness.”

The Walters

After a 4-year hiatus,indie stalwarts The Waltersreturn infull forceamid the widespread success of their viral hit “I Love You So” on TikTok and DSPs, signing to Warner Records and announcing their first three headline shows since 2017.Hailing from Chicago, The Waltersartfully intersect clever songwriting, catchy hooks, and soundtrack-worthy instrumentation steeped in a bit of a magic. Listeners first fell under the spell of the Chicago quintet—Luke Olson[lead vocals, guitar], Walter Kosner[lead guitar], MJ Tirabassi[rhythm guitar, vocals], Danny Wells[bass], and Charlie Ekhaus[drums]—when they independently released 2014’s Songs For DadsEP. Among many highlights, “Fancy Shoes”generated 30 million streams with “New Girl (Tom’s Song)” and “Life” on its heels. 2015’s Young Menonly maintained the group’s momentum as they attracted an impassioned and dedicated fan base. They captivated crowds in hallowed venues across their hometown such as The Metro, performed atRiot Fest, and left the audience amazed at Lollapalooza2017. Following the latter, their paths diverged during a mutual hiatus. In early 2021, the musicians reconnected and started plotting their return when the viral success of “I Love You So” accelerated their timeline. The song has swept across TikTok with over 270K fan-created videos. A standout from 2014’s Songs For Dads, its success overwhelmingly translated to DSPS, reeling in north of 133 million streams on Spotify and scaling the Global Top 50, currently at #40 and climbing, as well as #45 in the US Spotify Top 50. Signing to Warner Records, The Walters launch a new era in 2021 with their first shows in four years and plans for more music to come.

Cece Coakley

Cece Coakley is finding her sound in real time. Influenced by songwriting greats like Brandi Carlile, Taylor Swift and Phoebe Bridgers, Coakley has a knack for making ordinary moments feel monumental. Over the course of 2021, the 20-year-old singer-songwriter began turning her dreamy guitar ballad demos into fully realized songs. Her debut single “Cliché,” released earlier this year, has garnered over half a million Spotify streams to date. On her upcoming debut EP, Coakley digs deeper, skirting the line between indie and americana over sliding electric guitars. Musing about romantic clichés and hookup culture with a wisdom beyond her years, Coakley is an old soul living in the digital age. She has a gift for crafting moments into songs, a powerhouse voice to share them with, and nothing but time.

Mountain Laurel

Mountain Laurel is the oft told tale of a college cover band turned indie rock group. All four members of the band are Fairfield, CT natives, New York City residents, and alumni of Fordham University. In the fall of 2014 Andrew Pierson, Robert Salandra, and William Corona began playing bars and rooftop parties alike in their beloved Bronx, New York as a cover band called Seabass and the Fellas. After graduating from Fordham, the three friends stuck together to continue playing shows in the New York City metro area, eventually supplementing their sound with the delicate tones of vocalist Emma Salandra. Informed by Phish and Dave Matthews Band shows at the Hartford Meadows, classic rock on FM radio’s 95.9 the Fox, and their parents’ Stevie Wonder and Fleetwood Mac records, Mountain Laurel’s sound transcends the typical indie rock genre to include influences of folk, jazz, rock, pop, and country music. The band is currently in the studio with plans to release new music in early 2022.

Unruly Mane

Unruly Mane was formed in 2015 by married duo Leea Scarola and Steven Scarola, who were inspired to make music that honored their Irish and Italian roots. That sentiment birthed their first EP entitled Roots which combines boot-stomping sing-a-longs with tales of bravery, heartbreak, love, and perseverance.

Building off their diverse musical backgrounds, Steve and Leea have combined their love of rock, pop, and folk to create the signature sound of Unruly Mane. Steve Scarola began his songwriting journey as lead guitarist and songwriter for the critically acclaimed pop-rock band, Push Play. Steve co-wrote Midnight Romeo which got national radio play and reached #17 on the top 40 charts in 2009. After playing with Push Play for 5 years, Steve went to Fordham University where he met his now-wife, Leea, and together they formed La La Lush. La La Lush grew a strong cult following at Fordham and across NYC, leading them to sell out venues like Bowery Ballroom, share bills with Grouplove, appear at music festivals like SXSW, and get a feature spot in GEICO’s Indie Across America Campaign.

After gaining a loyal fanbase from years of live shows in New York City, Unruly Mane has expanded their reach globally, having performed in Kenya, Ireland, and Canada. In 2020 and 2021, Unruly Mane worked tirelessly in the studio with engineer Skylar Adler (of The Sound Is Fine and The Nico Blues), with plans to release various singles throughout 2022.

The Fitzgeralds

The Fitzgeralds formed in 2008 during the band members’ sophomore year at Fordham University when Chris Fitzgerald recruited Tim Pierson, Greg Iacurci, and Nick Walsh for a rehearsal in the basement of Keating Hall.  Since that time, The Fitzgeralds were joined by Nick’s high school bandmate, David Lerer, along with Tim’s brother, Andrew Pierson.  After years of covering the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, the Cure, U2, and other artists at house parties and bars around New York City, The Fitzgeralds recorded their first original track, “The Shore,” at Tarquin Studios in Bridgeport, CT, which was released in July 2021. Inspired by indie and alternative rock bands like Arcade Fire, Frightened Rabbit, and The National, as well as synth-pop groups like New Order, M83, and Future Islands, The Fitzgeralds continue to play shows around NYC and plan to release new tracks in the coming months.
