Brooklyn, NY’s Coyle Girelli released his debut solo album Love Kills in 2018. The Irish Independent declared “he croons like Orbison and emotes like Elvis and has delivered a sumptuously produced, Spectoresque album that explores the pleasures and pains of love.”
Georgia-born Ryan Shaw is a three-time Grammy-nominated artist who has toured with Van Halen, Bonnie Raitt, Joss Stone, John Legend, B.B. King, Bruce Hornsby and Jill Scott. His latest release, Imagining Marvin, honors Marvin Gaye by performing songs from the legendary artist with new original songs influenced by Marvin’s inimitable style.
Long Island artist Roken blends “watery synth and guitar tones of 80s post punk with smooth and soft layered vocals of 90s alternative R&B.” Wonderland Magazine reviewed his recent single release “Be Alone,” which features “poppy synths with punk-inspired guitars as he sings about heartache in his soft, smooth vocals.”
