People try to box others in. Genres and artist comparisons are how the public tries to make sense of a musician. You can’t really do that with Matt Bednarsky.

Born to a mother with a classical pedigree and a professional jazz guitarist father, Matt grew up in Shelton, CT engulfed in music. He began violin at the age of 4 (soon after left behind), guitar at age 8, and started singing probably not long after he could make farm animal noises. He first put pen to paper in songwriting at the age of 12, finding it as a way to creatively engage.

Matt attended New York University and studied Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, psychology and music. After studying abroad in It...

Dan O'Sullivan's nearly two decade long career as a guitarist-for-hire took him to performing with musical acts as diverse as South Korea's most famous female pop singer Pati Kim, 50's R+B vocal legends the Coasters, Blues singer Barbara Morrison, Adult Contemporary star Michael Bolton, and to sharing the bill with Reggae acts such as Maxi Priest, Eek-A-Mouse, and Big Mountain. Over time, his interest in the sideman role began to wither, as his desire to cut his own musical path grew. The stark realization that his previous career was over came when he received a phone call from the musical director of the Beach Boys. After a twenty minute conversation in which he was invited to be one of three singin...

For the past two and a half years, Craig Cardiff has been passing around a Book of Truths during his shows and asking his fans to share something truthful in it — a story, a confession, a hope, a secret. The book gives fans a chance to write down something they might be too afraid to say out loud, and it gives Cardiff an opportunity to connect with the people who come to his shows.

Those entries aren’t always easy to read. The stories can be heartbreaking, and they can leave Cardiff wanting to do something, to find the person who wrote in his book and tell them to hold on for tomorrow, that things will be OK.

Cardiff’s new album, Love Is Louder (Than All This Noise) Part 1 & 2, has turned int...

Described as everything from indie-roots to chamber-folk, West My Friend has an acoustic blend of instruments and four-part harmonies that challenges the conventions of popular music. The band features pure and thrillingly elastic vocals with catchy arrangements of bass, guitar, mandolin, and accordion that draw from jazz, classical, folk, and pop influences. Inspired by artists such as Owen Pallett, Joanna Newsom, Bright Eyes, The Decemberists, and the Punch Brothers, and forged from a sonically adventurous acoustic music scene on Canada’s west coast, West My Friend is proving to be a key part of a new generation of grassroots folk music. The wealth of musical experience and classical training in ...

# of Members: 2 Content: Mainstream

Genna & Jesse are defined by a unique alchemy born of the quirky chemistry, intricate vocal harmony and ardent storytelling which infuse their songwriting and vibrant performances. With whispers (and sometimes roars) of folk, blue-eyed soul, jazz, blues, torch song, and ‘60s and ‘70s pop music, their self-chosen genre “Retro Soul Pop” doesn’t entirely encompass their joyful live shows and sensual, deliberate albums. They shrug off music industry conventions in favor of what feels good, and this genre-defying dedication to being current and free has an exciting and irresistible effect. Drawing inspiration from their nomadic lifestyle, Genna & Jesse are best described as modern troubadours, generously o...
