Formed in New York City, with an astonishingly young yet accomplished line-up, Tempt set out their stall in magnificent fashion and deliver the goods, as their full-length debut album ‘Runaway’ shows. In a word, respected music journalist Malcolm Dome of Classic Rock describes ‘Runaway’ as “Brilliant!”.

Tempt take compelling contemporary rock as their touchstone and foundation, but also keep one foot confidently in the past, drawing on the feel good classic rock of the 80s, lending their music an undeniably retro feel. This combination of new and old gives Tempt a sound and swagger that combines the cut and thrust of modern rock (like Rival Sons and Foofighters) with the blazing pride and passion of vintage arena rock (think Van Halen and Def Leppard); a staggering achievement in this day and age.

It’s an album that concentrates on the vital ingredients of any modern day contenders, filled with songs that have stupendous (but not syrupy) melodies and big, beefy hooks. Crucially, all the parts are in place, including Zach Allen’s great vocals and Harrison Marcello’s incredible guitar playing; all wrapped up in arrangements with enough twists and turns to not only satisfy the musically-minded, but to also reach out to those who just wanna rock. “We're not ashamed to just let things rock, to have ripping guitar solos and have amazing vocals and songs with huge hooks,” offers guitarist Harrison Marcello, by way of explanation. “We want to have people sing along and have a good time at our shows.” “Our music is fun. We're not Neanderthals, angry at the world,” clarifies vocalist Zach Allen. “That doesn’t mean we aren’t socially or politically aware, but we are young and we are excited about life. Our music does have an edge, but that edge comes from growing up in the streets of NYC.”
Jason Consolacion
Jason Consolacion
Jason Consolacion is a NYC-based singer-songwriter who's style of rock is influenced by the folk subtleties of Paul Simon and the pop/R&B sensitivities of Stevie Wonder. His most recent album, a self-titled EP available on Apple Music and Spotify, was accepted by the Recording Academy for Grammy consideration in 2014, and tracks accepted for consideration in 2015. The Houston Chronicle described Jason's music as, "a comfortable blend of pop hooks, easy guitar riffs and confident vocals."
The New Arlenes
The New Arlenes
Forming in 2016, The New Arlenes are a pop/rock trio based out New York City consisting of Brendan Jones (guitar), Joe Wasserman (bass) and Daniel Sanders (drums). With the release of 2 EPs under their belt they pride themselves on creating catchy melodies and jamming musical compositions. Their style is a combination of the fun of early Weezer with the indie rock and roll attitude of The Strokes packaged all up in the efficient three member structure of post 2000 Destiny's Child.

As a group you can catch them around New York playing the iconic music clubs and DIY spots that the city has to offer. A typical set is all original music with song topics ranging from The Wile E. Coyote, a dog, numerous made up woman and the importance of not wearing a jacket.
