Troy Ramey :
From the smooth stylings of Sam Cooke to the lyrical beauty of Curtis Mayfield, soul music is rich in tradition, highlighted by an authenticity that few artists possess today. Troy Ramey, on the other hand, is an exception. Part crooner, part troubadour and all storyteller, Troy is pure, unequivocal soul, evoking memories with each note he sings. With unbridled emotional power, Troy has an inherent ability to reveal his pain and draw you into his music. This inimitable talent is brightly evident on his critically acclaimed debut EP, When the Lights Came, which features the haunting, introspective singles, “Rosary, & Song Man.”
Todd Michaelsen :
Todd Michaelsen is a singer-songwriter, music producer, multi-instrumentalist, performer, and film composer living in Brooklyn NY. Todd grew up in a small upstate NY town called Granville but moved to NYC in 2002 to pursue music full time. Under the name My Pet Dragon he toured the country with his lovely wife Reena Shah and had songs played on radio, ESPN, and licensed to commercials. The band notably shared festival stages with MuteMath, the Deftones, and Walk off the Earth. Todd is currently in the studio working on his self-titled full length album and will release it track by track in the Summer of 2017.
Dark Honey :
Based out of Albany, Dark Honey has been gaining exposure rapidly with their undeniable live show and lyrically-rich songs. According to Syracuse.com, “There’s something in soulful frontman Jimi Woodul’s voice that really gives Dark Honey an edge”. Between touring constantly, recording and producing themselves, this band is on their way.
