Wave Sleep Wave

"An unconventional and immediately memorable sound... this self-titled debut evokes indie rock greatness from beginning to end." -- The Daily Vault

"Adler is an extraordinary songwriter... his casting of Lion as his only complement further accentuates his abilities as well as Lion's. The collaboration is a harmony of amazing feats and epic in proportion. Definitely one of my favorite albums of the entire year so far." -- New Music Michael

"The new album by Wave Sleep Wave is simply R-A-D. If you get one album any time soon, this should be it." -- Loudvine

Too Much City

Stand-up comedian Steve Cronin grew up in Boston and then moved to New York City. After six years in New York, Steve felt, spiritually, that he needed to come home. Also he had no more money. Living in the big city can be tough and scary, especially if you’ve convinced yourself that it’s not.

With hilarious stories of getting older without growing up, Steve soon found out that when you take a bite of the Big Apple, it’s almost always more than you can chew.

Candice Anitra

Singer Candice Anitra is a modern musician. Labels or genres just confuse the impact of such a powerful talent. Her music is described as a mellifluous yet audacious blend of all the delicious yet often overlooked spaces between the genres. She has a Motown-esque vibe, is a left-of-soul singer-songwriter and embodies the subtle rapture of Joan Armatrading, the robust confidence of Meshell Ndegeocello. Ms. Anitra is on her way up so be sure to catch this performance.
