Melanie Martinez is an incomparable, multi-faceted artist that consistently brings innovation and artistic integrity to the forefront of her career. The constantly evolving 24-year old is at once a singer, songwriter, director, writer, and designer. Every creation of hers is another puzzle piece to the bigger picture. Taking story-telling to another dimension in music, she has embodied a character who was born out of her own imagination and subconscious.” – Melanie Martinez Facebook Bio

“When they met in the mid-1990s, Thievery Corporation’s Eric Hilton and Rob Garza instantly bonded over their shared passion for bossa nova. Dedicating their 1996 debut ‘Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi’ to bossa nova pioneer Antonio Carlos Jobim, the Washington, D.C.-based duo have spent nearly two decades creating boundary-warping, complexly crafted electronic music partly inspired by bossa nova’s intricate rhythms and lush textures.” – Thievery Corporation Facebook Bio

“‘Twenty’ a career retrospective album released on Jan 11, 2019 by Craft Recording is a celebration not only of the career-defining moments of Taking Back Sunday but of the landmark albums that chronicle the band’s story: 2002’s Tell All Your Friends, 2004’s Where You Want To Be, 2006’s Louder Now, 2009’s New Again, 2011’s Taking Back Sunday, 2014’s Happiness Is and 2016’s Tidal Wave, all of which are represented on this collection. Whether your introduction to the band was singing along to ‘A Decade Under The Influence’ in a sweaty club or hearing ‘MakeDamnSure’ or ‘Sink Into Me’ on the radio, Twenty is a look back at some of the highlights from this persevering group of musical misfits.” – Taking Back Sunday Facebook Bio

“Since forming as teenagers in 2006, The Menzingers have shown their strength as rough-and-tumble storytellers, turning out songs equally rooted in frenetic energy and lifelike detail. On their new album Hello Exile, the Philadelphia-based punk band take their lyrical narrative to a whole new level and share their reflections on moments from the past and present: high-school hellraising, troubled relationships, aging and alcohol and political ennui. And while their songs often reveal certain painful truths, Hello Exile ultimately maintains the irrepressible spirit that’s always defined the band.”  – The Menzingers Facebook Bio
