    The Alternate Routes
    The Alternate Routes
    The Alternate Routes are the band that helped us to remember “we are how we treat each other, and nothing more.” Now they’re back with a new single, “Safe Haven”—a love song that uses real life as its backdrop.

    "Nothing More” propelled the band into new ears and new heights, having been featured prominently in the 2014 Winter Olympics, on NCIS, and in a partnership with TOMS shoes. It was followed up with "Somewhere in America," a poignant and personal conversation about gun violence that earned the band a 2016 Independent Music Award and a visit to the White House.

    "Safe Haven” continues the socially-conscious, no-hold-barred examination on modern living that the band has increasingly embraced. It reflects an evolution and maturity that results from sticking together and trying new things, musically and lyrically, for over a decade.

    "Sitting down with someone you love and trying to convince them, and yourself, to keep pushing forward, to face your fears and stay strong, is a sentiment that I hope many people can relate to,” says guitarist, Eric Donnelly.

    "Safe Haven" was self-produced by Donnelly, drummer and engineer Kurt Leon, and singer Tim Warren, a sonic departure from previous efforts that highlights the use of the recording studio itself as an instrument. It was mixed by fellow Bridgeport, Connecticut native Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, The Swell Season).

    The Alternate Routes first burst onto the scene in 2005 with their breakthrough album Good and Reckless and True. They released several albums on Vanguard Records and on their own, toured extensively, and relentlessly refined their craft. They have collaborated with such seemingly disparate artists as singer-songwriter Patti Griffin, director Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are All Right), and guitarist Carl Broemel of My Morning Jacket. They’ve performed on “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” and have been repeat guests on NPR’s “Mountain Stage.”

    We are excited to announce we will be releasing a new live album, "Live in Pawling" on August 21, 2017! iTunes Pre sale begins August 4th. For those who don't want to wait, we will send 4 tracks from the album, and one bonus track, to anyone who purchases a ticket to any show on our upcoming fall tour.

    Dylan Rockoff
    Dylan Rockoff
    Boston singer/songwriter, Dylan Rockoff, first found success with the release of his debut single, “Feeling Fine.” After the song’s Fall 2015 release, it was featured on NBC’s, The Today Show, and aired on Pat Monohan’s SiriusXM show, Train Tracks. Dylan later released his follow up EP, These Old Streets, which peaked at #8 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart, and attracted over 2,000,000 global streams. In September 2016, Dylan closed his summer tour with a sold out show at Boston’s, The Red Room. Most recently, Dylan made waves opening for Bon Jovi at the Madison Square Garden date of his “This House Is Not For Sale” tour.

    “Come Over,” the first single off Rockoff's forthcoming LP, was released 6/23/17, and peaked at #15 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart.
    Bad Faces
    Bad Faces
    Bad Faces is a musical trio from Brooklyn, NY.

    Calling Bad Faces a rock 'n' roll band would not be false, however this would only be part of the story. Not quite a social movement (yet), Bad Faces is a vehicle for fun, freedom and a uniquely American sense of unhinged creativity.

    Think of a tree - No, think of three trees intertwined; Merging, growing upwards and outwards together to form a beautiful megaflora. One tree is Elvis Presley, the next is Leadbelly, the final is Jerry Garcia. Now think of a snowflake that lands on the fusion tree. As it melts, it absorbs nutrients from the leaves of all three. It hits the ground and gets absorbed right back through the roots and into the ecosystem. Soon a new leaf sprouts atop, yearning for sunlight, full of color. That leaf, so clearly influenced by history, yet so fresh, so new, so distinct;

    That leaf my friend, is Bad Faces.
