Day to day life and love in New York as standalone themes are trite but not when they are expressed in the form of Indie Rock, down-to-earth lyrics, and versatile tempos. In Dru Cutler’s latest single “Familiar” these come together in one beautifully composed piano ballad.

Familiar” now has an accompanying music video and will be debuting this Saturday, July 25, 2015 at The Living Room (134 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn NY) at 11:00PM. Continue reading

FREE Live Performance by Laura & Greg at Sunday’s Summer Market (7/19)

When I first heard of Laura & Greg, I was intrigued by its connection to neighborhood favorite, Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream.  Another Brooklyn-based somebody in a band? I thought it can’t be that good. But then I loaded up their first music video for “Muscle Memory” and discovered a beautifully composed song and a compelling animated video. I don’t have clever words at the moment to give this talented musical duo proper credit. Let’s just say their songs make my ears feel good.

I’m so extremely excited to have them at Sunday’s Greenpointers Summer Market perform live!!!

Sunday, July 19 @Greenpoint Loft (67 West St, 5th Floor) 1-7PM
