Melissa Giges and Ryanhood with Annie Stokes

Ebenezers Coffeehouse

Melissa Giges and Ryanhood

Melissa Giges
“Deeply personal songs.”
—Roberta Hershenson, The New York Times

Native New Yorker Melissa Giges is no stranger to success. Her music has become a staple on national radio and television, with multiple songs appearing regularly on shows like MTV’s Real World, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Bad Girls Club, and Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami.

In addition, the critical acclaim and commercial success of her debut album, Evident, has won her a loyal following with her mesmerizing performances and strikingly beautiful voice.

Now, the singer-songwriter is set to return to the national spotlight June 10th, 2014, with her new release, Just When I Let Go. About both the record, and its first single, “Audience,” Giges says, “I think this new album has a blend of intimacy and intensity to it. My lyric writing has become more personal than ever, while the music has become even more melodic, focused, and direct than ever. It’s loud, it’s bold, but I feel it also has a smart sophistication to it—a vulnerability—that I’ve wanted. I can’t wait for my audience to hear it.”

Intelligence and sophistication are not surprising, given Giges’ musical background. A classically trained pianist since age four, she discovered her love of singing by humming melodies of the works she was learning for the piano. Giges continued her musical studies, later majoring in classical voice as a Presidential Arts Scholar at George Washington University. Her stand-out gifts have led to performances at the White House and the Kennedy Center, as well as a European concert series.

Melissa Giges’ new album, Just When I Let Go, was produced, recorded, and mixed by Blake Morgan in New York City, and will be released worldwide on July 22, 2014, with an exclusive iTunes release June 10th, 2014, on ECR Music Group.


Ryanhood
Named ‘Best Group/Duo’ in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA’s), acoustic-duo Ryanhood got their first break more than a decade ago as street-performers at Boston’s Quincy Market. It was there that they were spotted by a college booking agent and thrust into the college touring scene, where Campus Activities Magazine would name them “one of the most requested acts by college buyers all across the country.” They’ve since gone on to perform more than 800 shows in 42 U.S. states over the past decade and have shared stages with Jason Mraz, Matt Nathanson, Train, American Authors, and have even been tweeted about by Ellen DeGeneres.

Cameron Hood’s rich and folky lead vocals, Ryan Green’s explosive guitar and mandolin riffs, and their airtight vocal harmonies prompted the Arizona Daily Star to call them, “a match made in radio heaven.”

Their fifth and newest album, Start Somewhere, finds the band returning to the intimate storytelling and acoustic guitar interplay that was a hallmark of their early work as buskers. They currently reside in their hometown of Tucson, AZ, where they have won more than a dozen Tucson Music Awards including “Best Folk Band” and “Best Rock Band” (you can decide for yourself which is most accurate).

Shenandoah Run

Shenandoah Run is a nine-member classic and contemporary folk group and they have been performing in the Washington, DC area for over 3 years. Each of the group’s members hails from Maryland or Virginia and their individual musicality, vocal and instrumental talent, as well as a strong desire to keep folk music alive and fresh, is key to the group’s success. Shenandoah Run blends vintage and contemporary folk music in a manner that appeals to all listeners.

They present the songs and sounds of American folk music, with an occasional infusion of songs from other lands and from the worlds of country and bluegrass. From the esoteric to the toe-tappingly familiar, their songs are treated to a lush multi-part vocal harmony and skillful instrumental backing that defines what is becoming their instantly recognizable sound. They present arrangements that are fresh, varied, and unique, while keeping with the spirit of the folk-music sound and they deliver it all with a chemistry that delights both audiences and the performers themselves.

Shenandoah Run has recently released its first full-length CD entitled “Winter to Spring”. It is a compilation of classic and new folk songs, including an original song written by one of the group members and the CD has been met with great interest and sales are doing well. Every Shenandoah Run performance to-date has either been a sell-out or played to a capacity audience. They have entertained audiences of all ages and have developed a fan base that is constantly growing.

Strangled Darlings and Bellwether Bayou - Live in the Coffeehouse

Strangled Darlings
http://www.strangleddarlings.com/

Strangled Darlings brings a punk intensity to their live show. Taking a cello and making it a hip hop bass. Taking mandolin and slapping it like a stubborn mule. The Portland based duo has been creating original tunes since 2009 and breaking the mold for what hipsters consider indie music. The bring a lyrical intelligence and political punch to their songs. Their song material varies widely to cover a blend of folk, hip hop, jazz and Americana with inspiration coming from: witchcraft in the Civil War, the morality of Somali piracy and the media impact of Neil Armstrong. The band has released three studio albums and a fourth is due out this fall. Their live show mixes technical mastery with deadpan humor and a little something to shake your rumpus.

Bellwether Bayou

Pamela Machala and Hayley Sabella with Jacob Furr

Ebenezers Coffeehouse

Pamela Machala and Hayley Sabella

Pamela Machala
http://www.pamelamachala.com/

Award-winning singer-songwriter Pamela Machala (“MOCK-uh-luh”) creates a delicious style of piano pop, influenced by her love of jazz and R&B.

Surrounded by a family of musicians (her grandfather was Louis Teicher of piano duo Ferrante & Teicher), music sank into Pamela’s veins from an early age. After school, she’d play and sing her heart out to Disney songbooks, often writing her own lyrical parodies à la Weird Al Yankovic. In college, she became serious about developing her knack for songwriting, described as “meticulously masterful song-craft [that] feels both modern and familiar, like a new offering at your favorite restaurant” (Twin Cities Newscastic).

Her eclectic fusion delights many first-time listeners, and her buttery, smoky voice and impressive piano chops create sounds similar to Norah Jones, Ben Folds, and Sara Bareilles. Her debut album, Golden Delicious, was recorded at Mark Rubel’s Pogo Studio (Alison Krauss, Rascal Flatts) in her hometown of Champaign-Urbana, IL. Released independently in June 2012, the album marries catchy hooks, harmonic complexity, and compelling lyrics.

Pamela now resides in the bustling music scene of Minneapolis, where she has built an avid following. In addition to performing regularly around the Twin Cities with her trio (Chad Mathis on bass and Lamont Sandifer on percussion), she tours nationally as a solo artist and continues work on material for her next album, due out in the fall of 2014.

Hayley Sabella
http://hayleysabella.com/

Hayley Sabella is a singer-songwriter / local farmer / earnest truth-seeker / independent woman / dork, who originally did her thing in her hometown of Plymouth, Massachusetts and is now doing her thing in other places, too. Her first EP was released in December 2012. It was called Farm Fingers, and it showcased her warm, urgent style and graced a variety of venues over the past half-year.

Her music feels like:

warm rainy days
a cup of tea
hugs
good advice
admitting your human frailty

Which is all very good. It is important, however, to see Hayley live, if you want to get a sense of what’s really going on here. Her live shows are energetic, thoughtful, sincere, and intimate. On stage, what you see is a well-dressed girl with a nice guitar and a rad haircut, dancing around a bit while singing about friends, family, God, and the problems we all have with all three of those things. What you are actually getting is a night with a full-formed honest-to-god human being, a beautiful soul, a dear friend, and a person you will want to watch over the years.

In other words: Hayley Sabella is art with a heartbeat.

She is currently preparing for her next album, King Solomon, which will be ready and all over the internet in the near future.

Ddendyl

Born in Castile, NY into a home exploding with creativity, Ddendyl expressed an affinity for music from an early age. With some help from her parents, she essentially taught herself to expertly play the piano and violin, but it was her classically trained voice that spotlighted the promising young talent during adolescence. Competing for her attention, it was the illustrious Interlochen Academy in Traverse City, Michigan that she choose to further her study into music in her teen years. While there, her operatic overtones were appreciated by students and teachers alike as she expanded her range to include a signature brand of jazz and folk. The singer now described as sultry found her place during her college tenure in Miami and made the move to Los Angeles to chase the her dream. While in California she explored a career in acting and modeling which eventually led to an offer to move to NY and pursue her true passion of music once again. Ddendyl is performing regularly around NYC and the DC area sharing her original compositions along with her versions of both contemporary covers and classic standards. She was on season 6 of NBC’s The Voice on Team Shakira!

with Omnia Hegazy

Omnia HegazyWebsite: http://www.omniamusic.com/

If Omnia Hegazy was not a musician, she might have been a journalist. The daughter of an Egyptian-Muslim father and an Italian-Catholic mother, she grew up in New York City a citizen of the world, with a deep passion for music and storytelling. Her sound is informed by guitar-driven American pop/rock, maqam-based Arabic folk, and the politically-charged singer-songwriters of the past and present. She is also a belly dancer and choreographer, seeking to create a fusion between East and West in both her music and her dancing.

Omnia started singing around the age of five and became a dedicated classical violinist at the age of ten. Looking for more artistic freedom, she picked up the acoustic guitar and discovered songwriting as a medium of self-expression. Now twenty-three, she does not draw inspiration exclusively from her own experiences. Her diverse perspective has also prompted her to take on issues such as women’s rights and political freedom. After scribbling her observations in a notebook on her trip to Egypt in 2010, she wrote half of the material for her first EP Jailbird and released the project independently a year later. Her sophomore EP entitled Judgment Day was released in May of 2013 and met with major press, including features on The Huffington Post, Fox News, The Daily Beast, and pan-Arab newspaper Al Sharq Al Awsat.

Omnia is a graduate of the prestigious Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where she studied music production and music business. She performs frequently at venues and colleges in the NYC area, and is currently in the process of writing and recording her first full-length album.

Annalise Emerick - Live in the Coffeehouse

Since moving from Nashville to New England in late summer 2011, Boston folk songstress Annalise Emerick has demonstrated her aptness to awaken reminiscence in the minds of her listeners with just a few simple words. Worldly and wise after years of traveling, this is a conceivable notion, for in many ways the singer is a gypsy—always restlessly exploring the notion of home musically, emotionally and geographically. She’s claimed a scattering of cities as musical muses, growing up in Austin and Seattle before studying music at Belmont University in Nashville, where she later recorded her first album with producer Brad Hill at Hill Studios.

With her 2011 acclaimed debut EP, Starry-Eyed, Emerick brought songs that have continued to resonate with audiences like “You Win,” “Round and Round,” and “This Love Won’t Break Your Heart”—(which was exclusively premiered as a music video on November 28th via American Songwriter)—thanks to a whirlwind slate of live performances and the immediate success of her seven track collection, (which debuted on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart at #9 its first day). The collection prompted an outpouring of attention from the national blog scene and a spotlight on CD Baby’s Music Discovery Podcast, which assured its listeners: “Fans of Ingrid Michaelson will feel right at home.”

In 2013 Emerick began her “Somewhere in Between” tour and continued raking in the awards: first prize in the 2013 New England Songwriting Competition and second place in the 2013 Solarfest singer/songwriter competition.

Emerick’s clear voice, acoustic-driven style and earnest, contemplative lyrics have situated her among fans of Eva Cassidy, Patty Griffin and Brandi Carlile. But with Starry-Eyed, Emerick proved that her gypsy propensity lends itself well to her songwriting and creative process. Her ability to poignantly detail lessons from relationships and contemplate life’s continuous journey has revealed her as a multi-faceted person and artist to fans.

“Emerick’s music is relatable and undeniably good.” -Performer Magazine

“...The celebration continues with ‘This Love Won’t Break Your Heart.’” -American Songwriter

“...Mellow & moving.” -Skope Magazine

“...[Emerick] blends folk music with pop sensibilities as she crafts melodies as pretty as her name.” -The Deli New England

Ebenezers Coffeehouse

Amy Andrews and Beggar’s Ride

Amy Andrews
http://www.amyandrewsmusic.com/

Born in Baltimore and raised on the Chesapeake Bay, Amy was brought up on the sounds of Sinatra, Bonnie Raitt, country, and blues, but spent her years training for a career in musical theatre and classical performance.

After college, however, Amy realized that she wanted to feel a greater connection to her audience (the kind of connection that large, formal concert halls tend not to allow).

Setting out to perform original music, Amy began her journey to folk musician by cutting her teeth as the lead singer of a Baltimore folk trio.

After a few tours through the southeast, Amy determined that an auspicious career move would involve relocating to the south - home of the Great Smoky Mountains, boiled peanuts, country music, and the performing songwriter’s beloved Eddie’s Attic.

Since relocating to the Georgia, Amy has toured extensively, with recent travels to the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, and western Canada, with festivals and shows in big cities, and long-forgotten gold rush towns.

Amy resides in Decatur, GA - land of the falling sweetgum limbs.

Beggar’s Ride
http://www.beggarsride.com/

“Beggar’s Ride will touch your heart and mind with their haunting harmonies and sensitive songwriting. Their sound may remind you of the Indigo Girls or the introspective side of Crosby Stills & Nash. They have got the talent to have a long ride indeed, through the folk world and beyond.”
John Platt WFUV 90.7FM

Baltimore based Beggar’s Ride is the contemporary folk duo of award winning songwriters Claudia SanSoucie and Kate Maguire. Formed in 2010, their combined talents leave you feeling they have performed together for a lifetime. In sync harmonies, intricate guitar arrangements, melancholy yet hopeful lyrics beg the listener to take a smooth ride on sweet melody.

with The Devyl Nellys

The Devyl NellysWebsite: http://thedevylnellys.com/

Raised in households where a myriad of music was played and appreciated, from Pink Floyd to The Allmans and Chuck Berry to Joao Gilberto, it comes as no surprise these artists create such diverse tracks. All having been introduced to pianos and drums in the grade school years, they acquired their addictions early on to the creative process and performing craft. Through a series of mutual crossroads in the Catskills and New York while supporting others, Government Mule and The Violent Femmes, these musicians met and formed their own project The Devyl Nellys.

Gigs in music towns, parties and colleges across the US led to genre development by songwriter Nelly Levon and guitarist James Mastro (The Bongos). Their distinct 60 bohemian rock style took shape after experimental jams and studio sessions at Retrophonics with Jim DeVito (JJ Grey & Mofro) and Bill Chapin (Justin Timberlake). Conflicting frustrations with mainstream art and life led to sharp lyrics that are frequently empathized and rarely sang. Like many contemporaries, they denied the urge to conform and pursued the independent route to showcase their arrangements. Recently, they’ve been heard on the festival scene, live venues, songwriter circles and across radio, television & film.

Andy Suzuki & The Method

Independent NYC-based band, Andy Suzuki & The Method, recently released their highly anticipated LP, Born out of Mischief. They crowd-funded nearly $50,000 to record and produce the new album with the support of their fans. Born out of Mischief is the band’s definitive full-length album — their folky take on rock music today.

The band is fronted by the songwriting trio Andy Suzuki, Jason Gorelick, and Kozza Babumba, two Jewish-half-Asians and the grandson of Grammy Award-winning Nigerian percussionist, Babatunde Olatunji.

The band has been writing and touring since 2008, but in the last year alone, they have had Official Showcases at SXSW and CMJ, performed at major music festivals in the US, and played shows at storied NYC venues such as Bowery Ballroom, Joe’s Pub, and SOBs. In the fall of 2012 they played internationally with a wildly successful 3-week tour in Southeast Asia.

Dizzy Bats’ front man, Connor Frost, never could kick his addiction to 90’s Pop Punk. Raised in Westchester, NY by the sound of Billie Joe Armstrong’s nasal yelp, Frost’s childhood musical obsessions have sustained him into adulthood.

The Cabin Project, Addie Brownlee, Matt Phillips

The Cabin Project
http://www.thecabinproject.com/

After years on the road, playing every kind of venue you can imagine, cabin project lead Katie Sawicki settled into her Portland, OR home for a year to garden, knit, write, drink whiskey with friends and make a record in her upstairs studio of doug fir and red walls. The result was the Cabin Project, released this past December to packed room full of warmth at Portland’s Mississippi Studios. In the process of making the record, these new sounds turned into the band- the Cabin Project.

Layered vocals, long cello lines, electronic melodies and strong drums define this set of five. Hailed as a “Singstress, Songwriter, Lyrical Genius” (Encore Magazine), cabin project lead Sawicki brings the group together over wine and melodies- anthemic, intricate and wide open for collaboration. The group is quickly making a name for itself in Portland, OR, bringing emotion and heart back to the music industry.


Addie Brownlee
http://addiebrownlee.com/
Addie Brownlee feels most settled when she’s unsettled.  “Sea Legs” off her new EP, “East of Leaving”—features a cameo by Martha Wainwright. It’s a rolling, lolling post-heartbreak shanty: “I got good sea legs from a year of trying to find my footing,” she sings in a voice that’s been oft compared to Dusty Springfield.  “Even Dusty Springfield’s name evoked the sound of her voice. I love the comparison.” If Brownlee’s voice is of the dust, the earth, then her lyrics are a hard rain. Eroding the surface of things, exposing feelings that aren’t easily expressed or classified, but so familiar it seems someone should have written these songs before.


Matt Phillips
http://www.ilikemattphillips.com/

Matt Phillips is a soulful artist that strives to make music people can get behind. Based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, this young performer and songwriter pens songs with folk and soul roots as deep as the cracks in his weathered acoustic. Whether he’s leading a 7-piece band with a huge, sly-jazzy sound or just flying solo with nothing more than his voice, guitar and the occasional harmonica solo – you can’t help but bob your head. With nearly 300 shows already under his belt and two releases paving the way, Matt is proving himself a confident and unique young performer with a very bright future ahead.
