    Tracy Bonham
    Tracy Bonham
    Tracy Bonham’s major label debut, The Burdens of Being Upright (Island Records), achieved Gold Record status in 1996, spawning the chart topping hit single Mother Mother. This lead to a pair of Grammy™ nominations, and an MTV Video Award nomination. Very soon after her world tour, the music business began to shift and change dramatically. Her sophomore album was delayed several times and by the time it was released in 2000, Island Records and the music business in general was almost unrecognizable. She released the arty and angry Down Here to critical acclaim but did not enjoy commercial success.
    In 2003, after moving to Los Angeles, Bonham became the featured vocalist / violinist on Blue Man Group’s The Complex Tour and How To Be A Megastar 2.0 (2006). In 2005 Bonham released her third album Blink The Brightest (Rounder/ Zoé). This was her most commercial sounding album and several of the songs were featured in tv shows and movies such as The L Word, Weeds, and Sexting In Suburbia. In 2010, after moving back to Brooklyn and marrying Rollingstone editor Jason Fine, Bonham released Masts of Manhatta. This album won accolades from major publications and landed her her second appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and The Late Late Show With Craig Furgussen. In 2015, Bonham released her fifth album entitled Wax & Gold with the help of Pledge Music and her fans. Wax & Gold was very well received by the public and the press. The album showed a maturity in songwriting, as well as an evolved vocal style, that makes Bonham stand out as a serious artist with a unique talent. Bonham is an artist who continues to create and grow no matter what obstacles are in her path.
    Tracy’s vocals and violin are featured on artist’s albums such as Latin Playboys “Dose”, Wayfaring Strangers’ “Wayfaring Stranger” & “This Train”, Ron Sexmith’s “Whereabouts”, and Aerosmith’s “Honkin On Bobo”.
    Tracy has just finished recording her sixth album, Modern Burdens, partnering up with Pledge Music, once again, to completely reimagine her over twenty year old debut album. She is joined by other strong female artists (Tanya Donelly, Rachael Yamagata, Kay Hanley, Sadie DuPuis, Kathryn Calder, Angie Hart, Nicole Atkins) on lead vocals – an intentional message of solidarity and strength for women everywhere during the Trump era. Modern Burdens will be released on October 11, 2017 which is, by no coincidence, the International Day Of The Girl.

    …“a gorgeous celebration of adult love” –Rollingstone Magazine

    …“Bonham’s collection brings a sophisticated quirkiness to the femme alt-pop table unseen for quite some time” – Billboard Magazine.
    Talay
    Talay
    Talay has been playing iconic New York City venues since she was 16, winning over fans with her clever lyrics and infectious on-stage persona. Often drawing comparisons to 90's favorites like Weezer, No Doubt, and Alanis Morisette, Talay's punchy power-pop tunes tell painfully relatable stories of friends, family, lovers, and losers. In June 2017, Talay released her self-titled EP produced by Greg Mayo (Delta Rae, Bernhoft) and Zach Jones (Sting, A Great Big World) and mixed by Ducky Carlisle (Demi Lovato, Rooney).
    Dendro
    Dendro is a neo-psychedelic band from Long Island with its roots firmly planted in jazz, blues, and rock and roll. The group is the lovechild of Tommy Shelton & Mario Baez, whose compositions are based around rhythmic changes and heavily improvisational guitars. The two guitarists have mastered the duet and at times their melodies meld together to sound as if they are coming from the mind of the same guitarist. Tom Miller's bass playing is intrinsic to the signature sound of the group; a student of funk, soul and anything/everything that thumps and grooves. Jazz fusion has also been of great influence to Tom and you can hear it in the creativity of his playing. Dylan Bales is the heartbeat of the band as he smoothly and virtuosically controls the time signature changes from behind the kit, him and Tommy have been creating together for upwards of a decade. This is a group that was born and raised in the same place and has known each other for a long time, and that connection is reflected in the music that they create.
    Julez
    Julez is a 22 years old rock and blues musician from New Jersey and New York, influenced by classic musicians such as Led Zeppelin, Rickie Lee Jones, Linda Ronstadt, Grace Slick, Heart and much more. Julez grew up in a musical family, and therefore was introduced to music at a young age. Julez has been a singer since she was just a toddler, and at the age of seven, she began piano lessons performing in many recitals. When Julez received her first acoustic guitar at age eight, she immediately grew a strong interest in song writing, and knew that she wanted to be a musician. So far, Julez has performed at several New York City locations such as The Bitter End, Piano’s, and The Delancey.
