In just one year, Miami native Emily Green was able to pull off more than most New York musicians can pull off in five years. She self released her debut album “Is This What You Had In Mind” to a sold out show at NYC’s Joe’s Pub, her music was featured on nationally aired tv shows such as Covert Affairs, the hit new TV series on the USA Network which shares soundtrack credits with other illustrious singer-songwriters and artists like Brandi Carlile, Florence & The Machine, Ray LaMontagne, Broken Bells, and Wilco. She’s toured nationally and been chosen as an opening act for folk favorite Dar Williams to Pop UK soul songstress Eliza Doolittle and has played packed shows at notorious New York City rock clubs to silent and mesmerized fans. Not to mention her collection of glowing reviews- some saying she is a ‘snarkier Tori Amos’, and another saying that same comparison is too cliche for her. Time Out New York states she is a mix between “Liz Phair’s brusque gal-rock and Norah Jones’ husky coffee-tableisms.”; The bottom line is Emily Greene climbed her way out of the pool of hundreds- maybe thousands of singer/songwriters in the big city alone and has been getting tons of the right kind of attention.
Emily is now working on recording a follow up album and is collaborating with renowned pianist Pascal Le Bouef on a trip hop album under the name ‘Kissy Girls’.
Discography: Is This What You Had In Mind (2010)
Andrew Foshee is a pirate. He has spent most of his life playing instruments and writing songs, though mostly at sea. On pirate ships.
He has formally released two albums, 2008′s ‘Wasting My Time’ (which he played all instruments and recorded at his home studio in Lake Lotawana, MO) and 2009′s ‘Melodramatic Popular Song’ recorded by Larry Crane at Jackpot Studio in Portland, OR, and mixed by Dan Romer in Brooklyn, NY.
He has hundreds of unreleased songs he is still deciding what to do with and is currently recording his latest solo project within the confines of his home. Andrew is also the songwriter and founding member of the indie-rock band Bipolarbare, featuring Denis Ryan Hill on drums and Matt Allen on bass/engineer. Together they are recording an EP at ‘Studio Van Dagoh’ in Parkville, MO.
“In 2010, I wrote 365 songs. In 2011, I will play them for you.”
So says Brooklyn’s Ace Reporter, who recently completed the herculean task he set out for himself in 2010 – writing and recording an original song every day of the year. Whereas most people may complain about the routine of their daily lives, Ace took the rigorous routine of the threesixfive project in stride. “It was something I poured myself into,” says Ace. “It became a journal of my physical and mental state. I wrote songs in odd places. I wrote songs when I was tired, buzzed, and caffeinated. Some I wrote with a clear idea of what I wanted, others with no premeditation at all.”
Since their inception in 2005, Quiet Company has traveled all over the country, logging over 400 shows just since 2007, and though the lineup has changed, the goal never has: To write epic pop music that is intelligent, honest, and thought provoking.
2010 was a break out year for this Austin band. They began the year by playing SXSW 2010 & self-producing/recording their 6 track EP, Songs for Staying In, which was released to incredible critical acclaim in May, 2010. The 1st single, “How Do You Do It” was quickly added to KGSR’s rotation, and with in weeks, was also a staff pick selection by KROX’s Trevin Smith and added into full rotation on their station as well. “How Do You Do It” was featured for over 4 months on both stations.
