“The Hempsteadys [are] a high-energy, fun-centric performance unit whose through-the-roof stage act became an in-demand soundtrack for dozens of New London Saturday nights. Need a party? Find out where The Hempsteadys are playing. Problem solved.” – Rick Koster, The Day
“If you like old school ska, boy have we found a gem for you! The vocals are gritty and add just enough ‘punk essence ‘ to keep it from being reggae. The horns (and specifically the saxophone) are all incredible. If it’s one thing we thing we need more of in punk music these days, it’s more saxophone” – Dying Scene
Marvelous Liars is a rock and roll band from New London, CT. Members include guitar/singer Nicholas Johns, drummer Shane O’Connell, and bassist Nick Cancelmo. After releasing their debut album Another Castaway last year they have received high praise from fans and critics alike. Marvelous Liars has been steadily building both a loyal following and a reputation as an energetic live act. Along with constant regional touring, they are set to return to the studio this October to begin work on their sophomore full-length album being released through Telegraph Recording Co.
Violent Mae was never intended to be a band. Becky asked Floyd to record and produce her first solo album, and as soon as they hit the studio, chemistry and dynamics between the two sparked the evolution of an artistic partnership. Their self-titled debut initially released in 2013 garnered national attention and was re-released early in 2015 when it hit college radio riding a wave into the Top 100 for 6 weeks on the CMJ Radio chart. Kid is the sophomore release due November 20, 2015. Rising out of Becky’s guitar driven songwriting and multi instrumentalist, Floyd’s production style, the record is a document of a band coming into its own.
