Bringing original, dance provoking, and well crafted jams alongside creative takes on our favorite covers.

High Fascination
High Fascination
High Fascination, described as having a “pristine and organic” sound by E Train, is an energetic blend of rock, pop, folk, and psychedelic pop. Started in 2009 as a solo recording project, High Fascination’s first four albums were recorded solely by multi-instrumentalist Andrew Weiss. The Music Court characterizes Weiss as "oozing with talent. Weiss is a band in a box." In 2012, he began writing and recording with other musicians, releasing 2 additional albums under the High Fascination umbrella. The band’s music has been compared by The Music Court to “a ripe apple: crisp melodies when you sink your teeth into the music and juicy innards when you delve into its intricacies.” In October 2016, High Fascination performed at The Outlaw Roadshow in New York City, a festival curated by Adam Duritz (lead singer of Counting Crows). High Fascination combines smooth lyrics, melodies, and riffs to create a sound that optimizes both the studio and live performance. Forkster can “certainly see a big appeal for their glowing rock music charm, great tunes here!” As of early 2017, the band is in the studio recording a new album.
City Alley
City Alley
City Alley is composed of Joe DiGiglio, Matt Cusack, Chris Insignares and Jake
Atherton. Derived from childhood friends, Joe and Matt, the band is rooted in their love
of music and instrumentation. Together, they instilled the foundation for the band’s
sounds today. Joe is self-taught immersing himself in his vocal abilities and transforming
songs into his unique style. Matt studied music throughout his life and played in other
bands before reuniting with Joe and former band-mate, Chris. The band has recently
added band-mate Jake, who brings with him a soulful sound transcending from his stellar
guitar skills. From their classic rock influences and their fusing of new musical styles,
City Alley draws from personal experiences and reality to drive passion through their
emotional lyrics and uniquely mixed harmonies.
