Xan of Mars
Xan of Mars
xan of mars is an androgynous punk fairy brought to earth to open minds and push boundaries. her psyche is in constant battle between the darkness brought on from past traumas, and the light of peace and self-acceptance. her soothing vocal tone glides atop funky tracks that combine smooth synths, syncopated rhythms and layered melodic lines with a vibrant energy to deliver compelling stories about her painful past, and to inspire hope for a brighter future. xan has found that to live freely, one must embrace all parts of themself, positive and negative, since neither darkness nor light can exist without the other. embodying this notion of balance through fluidity, her debut single “low down high” is being released as two separate songs produced in different styles, with (push) showcasing a brighter, more positive outlook, and (pull) sonically displaying the dark, glitchy angst we bury deep inside.
NERIKA
NERIKA
NERIKA is a New York based singer/songwriter, unafraid to push the boundaries of pop. Hailing from both new Hampshire and Jamaica with her bubbly disposition and fiery personality, she fuses island vibes with explosive pop in her mission to be a voice for people who feel they don’t have one, specifically kids of immigrants. The 22 year old, self proclaimed “cultural misfit” will release her debut single “Runnin’” in March 2018. Nerika has performed at academic institutions such as Pratt University, UNH, and NYU, in addition to venues such as Arlene’s Grocery, Pianos, Lincoln Center, and The Brooklyn Bazaar.
Mack Keane
Mack Keane
Mack Keane is an alternative R&B/Soul artist originally from Los Angeles. Recently Mack Keane released his first EP "2107". Keane has performed at festivals and shows both in LA and New York, including Knitting Factory, Whiskey GoGo, and Our Life Music Festival.
Francesca Milazzo
Francesca Milazzo
Unafraid to tackle taboo subjects head-on and remaining raw and real, Francesca Milazzo is the risk taker and rebel modern pop music needs. With sultry soulful pipes equally resonant over pop, R&B, blues, and rock, the Italian-American singer and songwriter channels influences as diverse as Etta James, Nina Simone, Alabama Shakes, and Kings Of Leon with her own soaring spirit. She quietly honed her voice for years until her family caught a talent show performance. Encouraged by her loved ones, she dove headfirst into music. In order to focus on her art, she left college and a potential enrollment in the Army ROTC program and began tirelessly gigging around New York. She started writing songs on piano and guitar in addition to collaborating with friends throughout the city. Along the way, Francesca developed a 21st century blue-eyed soul style that crystallizes on her 2017 debut.
