Singer/songwriter, producer, guitar, and harmonica player from the Southern Tier of Upstate New York — is a description that only begins to scratch the surface of motivation-driven, harmony-obsessed Emily Angell. While some have compared her to Jewel and Alanis Morissette, she’s equally known for moments of belting out Christina-esque high notes and busting out the harmonica after disclosing her love of donuts and hatred of wearing pants to an audience.
Emily's latest album: Built For This combines empowerment pop with touching melodies that are easily singable. Her live show, courtesy of bandmates Liam Murphy (guitar), Matt Bauer (drums), Steve Riccio (bass) is a natural extension of the album, complete with rich harmonies and an intense stage chemistry that perfectly accompanies sizzling guitar riffs, electro-rock drum beats, and blasting bass riffs.
Emily’s debut self-released EP The Upset (2011) received praise for its simple, acoustic approach, landing her generous reviews from Women of Substance Radio and AllMusic.com. Her sophomore EP Let Go (2015) incorporated Folk and Rock influences and secured her spots opening for Alt Nation mainstays American Authors and Dreamers. ComeHereFloyd says “Boss” (Built for This, 2018) "races into the subconscious of your mind and hooks in like – whoa."
When Emily isn't busy gigging about town or running around obstacle course races in the mud, you can catch her over at Twitch.TV/emilyisfun singing, sipping coffee, and laughing at her own jokes.
Alex Cano is a Folk/Alternative Rock solo artist born and raised in the Hudson Valley, NY, currently residing in Tarrytown. Originally from South Salem, Alex has been studying music since the age of 5. He began his professional music career as a drummer in his mid-teens. He has since performed nationwide with numerous projects/artists from the NYC, Hudson Valley, and Central New York regions. Eventually falling in love with songwriting, Alex took up voice/guitar and began crafting his own original music for the several of the bands he was a part of.
Shortly after graduating from Ithaca College, feeling it was time to start something fresh, he began his own solo project. Not long after its launch however, Alex suffered a career threatening and heartbreaking vocal injury and was forced to refrain from singing for over two years. Throughout the extensive roller coaster of a rehabilitation process, he continued writing. The stories from this period in time translated into an emotional batch of songs, becoming the groundwork for his debut record.
Once cleared from injury, Alex brought the new material into the studio and returned to performing extensively both locally and nationally. He has since performed at numerous local and NYC venues including Garcia's at the Cap, Lucy's, Rockwood Music Hall, The Bitter End, Arlene's Grocery, The Cutting Room, The Footlight, and many more.
Alex's sound comes from an eclectic array of influences. His music has been described as a cross between energetic alternative rock, and reflective folk/roots rock with elements of outlaw and alt/country. His baritone voice has been compared to singers such as Jim Morrison, Johnny Cash, Eddie Vedder, and Matt Berninger. Most significant musical influences include bands and artists such as The Record Company, Led Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Chris Stapleton, Jamestown Revival, The National, Jason Isbell, The Band, Sturgill Simpson, Johnny Cash, and Kris Kristofferson.
