The Marías
The Marías
Formed in Los Angeles in late 2016, The Marías are the psychedelic-soul lovechild of LA native, Josh Conway and Puerto Rican-bred, Atlanta-raised María. A smooth rendezvous of jazz percussion, hypnotic guitar riffs, smoke-velvet vocals and nostalgic horn solos, there’s something undeniably sensual in the group’s dreamlike fusion of jazz, psychedelia, funk and lounge.

With María on lead vocals and Josh on drums, the couple is joined by their closest friends and fellow musicians. On guitar, Jesse Perlman, born and bred of LA, with ‘tones that can melt steel,’ say his bandmates. On bass, Canadian born and Berklee trained Carter Lee. On keys, Edward James.

As they take to the stage, dressed like a dream from another era – it’s clear why fans cheekily compare their sound to ‘having sex in the 70s’ or like ‘pouring cream into coffee.’ Watching them, you feel transported, taken over by a sultry tranquility as you drift into a timeless space.

They recently released their first EP, titled ‘Superclean Vol. I,’ in the fall of 2017, and it'll be followed by ‘Superclean Vol. II’ in early 2018.
Paul Cherry
Paul Cherry
Paul Cherewick, monikered Paul Cherry, initially came up during Chicago’s garage rock wave of 2014. In the thick of the DIY scene with up and coming bands of the time as Twin Peaks, Mild High Club and Whitney, Paul would abandon the all too familiar lofi rock sound of his first EP “on Top” and spend the next 3 years exploring the nuances of jazz and pop, finding his footing with a new sound. Paul Cherry has revamped and reinvented himself on his debut LP, Flavour. Cherry’s well crafted melodies sit at the intersection that fans of Todd Rundgren’s classic songwriting and Ariel Pink’s lo-fi dream pop can totally enjoy
Saleka Night
Saleka Night
Saleka Night is a singer-songwriter with an eclectic combination of influences. She trained as a classical pianist from the time she was 4 years old, learning skills which became the foundation of her songwriting. As an Indian-American, she was raised on a lot of Indian folk music and Bollywood movies. Although she couldn’t understand all the words, these sounds shaped her rhythmic and sonic tastes. She has also lived her whole life right outside of Philadelphia, a city with rich music history, and fell in love with R&B, jazz and the blues, especially female icons like Etta James, Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughan and Lauryn Hill who became her inspiration to sing. Saleka has now graduated from Brown University, where she developed her music training, delved into experimental poetry to expand her lyric writing, and started learning how to produce and record on her own. She paired up with two fellow students, Warner Meadows and Ezemdi Akalonu as producers, and they just completed her debut album, which she is planning to release in the fall of 2019.
