Eddy Lee Ryder

In a respectably seedy corner of New York City resides one of the great characters of music, Eddy Lee Ryder, a singer-songwriter whose true-life stories are infinitely more eye-popping than any number of fabricated nonsense you get from some of the pretenders out there. Channelling not only artists such as Stevie Nicks, Kate Bush and Elvis Costello but also the wild 70’s fug of Times Square and 42nd Street bars, Eddy is the conduit through which the charismatic phantoms of yore travel on the way to the 7-11. Small Apartment is her new single, a glimpse at the harrowing contents of her dwelling in a building that is equal parts Chelsea Hotel and Muppet Show Theatre.

Eddy Lee Ryder has already enjoyed a musical career which has seen her move from an obsession with Peter Gabriel’s Salisbury Hill to encompass the storyteller worlds of Springsteen, Nicks and, in varying doses, Spinal Tap. Unconventional and never less than utterly enthralling, her previous exploits have seen her filming fake casting calls for men wearing underpants for her videos; plastering Boston with “have you

seen Matt the racoon?” posters and being thrown out of the backstage areas of megastars shows (current record: Paul McCartney, twice in the same day).

Released as part of a forthcoming 6-track EP, Eddy describes her latest work thus:

“I wrote about a world returning to the 70s.The freedom driving across the country and telling stories ofinteresting and gritty people I met and situations I found myself in. It’s a celebration of the impending apocalypse”

Small Apartment is your first glimpse at a surprisingly drunk and glamourous end of the world. Eddy will meet you at the bar.

Dylan Sherry

Dylan Sherry had a productive 2019, releasing the ‘Vacant Lands’ EP and his second full-length album ‘Western Sky,’ arranging interviews, press releases, and playing dozens of shows around Southern California including a record release show at the Hotel Cafe in Hollywood. ‘Stars,’ a single included on both releases of 2019, found itself in rotation on radio stations across the US. Co-written with Misty Boyce, the song is best described as “...looking to the sky above for answers. People all around the world have different reasons for doing something like that… it’s [a] method for trying to learn about things unknown.”

The ‘Silver Spring’ EP, Dylan Sherry’s debut release in 2016, brought show offers and an opportunity to break into the local scene. Playing with members of The Halfway Happys, Dream Talk, Blank Summers, and Niko Boy, a certain ‘family’ of local artists was formed, with the group creating Baby Boy Sounds—their own record label. The relationship is described by Dylan Sherry; “We all have different influences and styles that create an environment where constructive criticism and input are welcomed. It’s healthy for artists—especially when they’re up-and-coming…” Whether it be on 2018’s ‘Wild Range’ or the recently released ‘Western Sky,’ the multiple influences can be heard—stretching from Surf, Folk, Motown, Pop, and Soft Rock.

William Hinson

Buzzing indie-pop artist based out of North Carolina who fuses catchy, relatable lyrics with feel-good compositions to create a fresh sound. He has cited The Beatles, John Mayer, Hall and Oates, and The 1975 as his biggest influences.


Katrina Cain

Self-described as "melancholy pop", Katrina Cain is a Los Angeles-based vocalist, songwriter, pianist and guitar player with raw, gritty folk in her voice that pairs uniquely well over dreamy, electronic beats. She is most well known for her standout performances on Season 15 of NBC's The Voice. Her haunting arrangement of Fleetwood Mac's "Rhiannon" prompted Adam Levine to declare that she "should have been a four-chair turn" had half the teams not already filled.

Her music brings the listener on a journey of sweetened pop sounds and luscious dreamscapes, crooning about the human experience of heartbreak and self-discovery. Katrina is based in Los Angeles and has received notable press in Pop Sugar, Huffington Post, Paste Magazine, VoyageLA, and radio stations across the country. Katrina was an official SXSW 2018 and 2019 performer, and has opened for bands such as Phantogram, Sarah Jaffe and Com Truise.
