City Of The Sun
City Of The Sun
City of the Sun is John Pita, Avi Snow and Zach Para. With two guitars, a box, and bells, they create a sound that is far greater than the sum of those parts. Their music has been called “a re-invention of acoustic music.” It's instrumental, it's worldly; sweeping from wide-screen post-rock dynamics to gypsy jazz syncopations, "they define experiential music." Formed in NYC in the early 2010s, the trio has blazed a trail through the city playing everywhere from street corners to venues, selling out hotspots like Rockwood Music Hall, Mercury Lounge, and The Bowery Electric. They've shared stages with a diverse array of artists including Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member Marky Ramone, Matisyahu, and Greensky Bluegrass. City of the Sun has also traveled abroad to perform for exclusive TEDx showcases and TED Talks.
My Son Bison
My Son Bison has spent the last five years obsessively forging its own brand of experimental folk, influenced as much by the Beach Boys as by Ravel or the gauchos of Argentina. The result is Two Faces and a Vase, a debut record that follows songwriters Dane Galloway and Joel Gleiser through a sloppy gauntlet of growth and self-loathing as they wrestle to reconcile the realness of existential ennui with the ugly entitlement it breeds. Recorded entirely on acoustic instruments – twelve-string guitar, upright bass, prepared piano, mandolin, strings, harp, horns, and more – Two Faces and a Vase is My Son Bison’s most cohesive work to date, every song shining light on where they’ve been while loudly declaring where they’re going.
