    Striven is a hard rock band from Westchester, NY & CT featuring:

    Greg Capra (Rhythm/Lead Guitar & Vocals)
    Conor O’Leary (Drums)
    Steve Riccio (Bass)

    Established in 2011, they have remained true to their grunge-rock and heavy metal roots. The focus of Striven is to retain that style while also producing a new sound for a modern audience. The word striven means to struggle in opposition, to push through the boundaries of adversity and reach a desired goal. This is the reason why this band refers to itself as striven, as the band strives to push beyond the tests of life.

    Striven's main influences include:
    Alice In Chains, Black Label Society, Faith No More, and Megadeth, to name a few.
    Carbon was founded circa 2016 by john Kiyak and Jeff Pardes.. a fresh take on genres including funk, soul blues and rock. Rich with 3 part harmonies that won’t disappoint.

    Hailing from the Southern Tier of New York, Singer/Songwriter/Producer Emily Angell can be seen all over Westchester and Connecticut singing, strumming and wailing on the harmonica. She’s been compared to Alanis Morisette, Jewel, and Christina Aguilera, while Town Vibe Bedford notes she “has a gift for making every cover sound like her own original piece.” Emily’s fans recognize her love of donuts and tacos and her hatred of pants. She regularly laughs at her own jokes. Her all-time favorite band is Dawes. She dreams of opening for P!nk or OneRepublic.

    In October 2017, Emily released "I Got This", the debut single to her upcoming Folk/Electropop EP, which combines influences from her roots James Taylor and the Beatles with sounds from artists like Kiiara and Dua Lipa.

    In an industry where popular music can often feel inauthentic, Emily stands out not only with her motivational and emotionally-charged lyrics, but with a versatile set of vocal chords and a knowledge of both sides of the recording studio.

    Her debut self-released EP The Upset (2011) received aplomb for its simple, acoustic approach, landing her heralding reviews from Women of Substance Radio and AllMusic.com. Emily’s sophomore EP Let Go (2015) incorporated incorporated Folk and Rock influences and secured her spots opening for well-known names in Alternative Radio like American Authors and Dreamers.

    Emily Angell aims to set the bar for independent artists, popular music and female producers. By being connected emotionally, morally and socially, Emily believes the empathy that music fosters will change the world.
