Duncan Sheik
Duncan Sheik
After breaking through in the late '90s with his Top 20 single "Barely Breathing," Duncan Sheik spent much of the subsequent decade taking a breather from the usual rock singer/songwriter rituals. His focus was on albums that broke with pop music conventions and, additionally, theatrical musicals like Spring Awakening, the Broadway sensation that won him 2 Tony Awards and a Grammy.



His new album splits the difference. Sheik makes his long-awaited return to singing stand-alone pop songs, but he hasn't given up his recent habit of inhabiting characters. In this case, though, the characters are Morrissey, Robert Smith, Martin Gore, and David Sylvian. Duncan Sheik Covers 80s features twelve of his highly personalized takes on the synth-pop era, including smashes and obscurities from the likes of the Cure, New Order, Tears for Fears, the Smiths, the Psychedelic Furs, the Thompson Twins, Love & Rockets, Howard Jones, Japan, Talk Talk, and the Blue Nile.



As for his own next record, it's "a quote-unquote normal singer/songwriter record. God, it sounds like a recipe for disaster!" Hardly: The experiment Sheik is undertaking at his newly built studio in upstate New York sounds like it could be the culmination of everything he's learned working in such disparate media and styles. "I have some funny ideas about fusing some of the stuff I've been working with lately—i.e., all the purely acoustic instruments, and then all the purely electronic stuff—and trying to find a way to marry these two universes of sound, where it's unique and hopefully moving in some way and strange and enigmatic and brings people to a different place."

Charlie Scopoletti is proof that musicians have influence that can lead to real impact. Through his music he has helped raise over $100,000 for charities and has been recognized for his selfless commitment to helping others, with a Certificate of Appreciation by Westchester NY County Executive and a Proclamation naming March 7th “Charlie Scopoletti Day” by the Mayor of Port Chester NY.


A two-time cancer survivor, his music draws from the unique perspective of someone who's faced and overcome adversity. His music speaks stories of the human condition, creating a combination of inspiring songwriting and thought-provoking lyrics. Charlie strives each day to help inspire, spread hope and make positive change to enhance people’s lives.


As of recent Charlie is back in the studio recording his new EP “Today Is The Day" with Oscar winning, Grammy and Emmy nominated Producer/Engineer/Mixer Robert L. Smith. One of the songs called "This Wish" was written for CT Make A Wish Foundation, Charlie was asked to write a song and perform it at their annual Evening of Wishes Gala at Mohegan Sun. The gala celebrated 5-year-old Sierra who had a life threatening condition. The EP is due for release early June 2014.


As Charlie continues to grow as an artist and as a person, one thing is for certain, he is touching people’s hearts and here to make a difference one song and one show at a time.

Charlie will be performing with his 10-piece band that includes some of the top musicians from the tri-state area. Josh Dodes (Keys), Tony Tino (Bass), Sergio Ortega (Electric Guitar), John Giamara (Drums), Tabitha Fair (Background Vocals), Shereef Clayton (Trumpet), Jonathan Arons (Trombone). They have performed and recorded with such artists as Sting, Rob Thomas, Gavin Degraw, Amy Grant, Stevie Wonder, Marc Cohen and Jon Bon Jovi.

The New York-based artist previously hit the top forty iTunes charts with his 2010 EP release After the Morning After. In support of his 2007 debut, Watching Waiting (Fontana), he played over 250 dates—with sellout shows in Chicago and Wisconsin—dazzling audiences with his pop song smarts, masterful guitar playing and exuberant stage presence. Carey has toured nationally and performed on stage with such diverse artists as Jason Mraz, John Mayer, Marc Broussard, Brendan James, Jason Reeves, Keaton Simons and Matt Duke. Since 2010 he has been a fixture at the annual Hotel Carolina music festival. His music has been featured in MTV's The Real World and movies such as Palo Alto and True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet.



Future Throwback is the culmination of all this past work and the album feels like a celebration of self-realization. It's Todd Carey in Technicolor—the purest and most vibrant representation of his live show, charming, flirtatious, frisky and bubbling over with good vibes.
