Georgia
Georgia
Born and raised in north west London, the last few years have seen Georgia steadily establish herself as an important fixture in the city's most singular and imaginative artistic circles, playing drums for Kwes and Kate Tempest among others before emerging as an irresistible creative force in her own right with last year's Come In EP.

Newly signed to Domino, Georgia is currently putting the final touches to her debut album which she entirely wrote, performed and self-produced - details of which will be announced soon.
Frances Rose
Frances Rose
New York City electro-pop outfit Frances Rose consists of Sarah Frances and Michelle Rose Cagianese. As dual vocalists, songwriters, and producers, the sisters are known for a dynamic sound which deftly blends a wide range of influences including R&B, indie rock, grunge, and contemporary chart-pop. Growing up in the rural Hudson River Valley, Sarah and Michelle began their journey with classical instruments at age seven, with Sarah learning violin and Michelle the cello; blossomed into a songwriting duo as pop- and indie-obsessed teenagers; and further evolved in college, where Sarah performed acoustically, at Boston University, while Michelle studied performance and music, first at Bennington and then at the New School. In 2009, after graduation, the sisters reunited in New York City to forge Frances Rose as well as collaborate with other local producers and musicians. In early 2012 the group scored a well-received debut with the single “Vampire,” released on Kitsuné, and in 2013 they won the Deli Magazine competition for Best Emerging Artist. The following year they lit up the track “Questions” in collaboration with Brooklyn’s Chordashian. This fall the group will perform in New York City, including CMJ, in support of their upcoming debut EP, “Dreams Come True”. The sisters are joined by Christian Winter Campbell (guitar) and Miliken Gardener (drums) to fill out Frances Rose's moody, crystalline, folk-inspired brand of indie pop.

Reni Lane
Reni Lane
Whether it's fronting her band in Brooklyn, whipping up songs for mobile app Keezy or creating a performance art piece for Cutlog Air Fair, Reni brings a bracingly vulnerable voice to the space between music, technology, art, and the extreme.

A compelling performer and formidable songwriter, Reni has collaborated with seasoned veterans like Linda Perry and Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne, Ivy), lent her voice and multi-instrumental skills to Duncan Sheik and Howie Day, and opened for acts like The XX, Owl City, and She & Him.

Reni's artistic interests began at a young age with classical piano training and modern dance lessons. She sold her piano to finance a move to New York City and attend Columbia University's Creative Writing Program, where she threw DIY concerts in her dorm room and cut her chops at Sidewalk Cafe's open mic night, home of the Anti-folk movement. At 19, after touring The Netherlands in support of her first independent effort "American Baby," Reni was signed to Custard Records who released her major label debut, Ready, on Universal Records/Motown Records.

Ever since Ready, Reni has been on the road and in the studio expanding her artistic arsenal; she toured as The Like's keyboardist opening for the Arctic Monkeys in support of their album Release Me (produced by Mark Ronson) and co-wrote and co-produced a one-off concept album with Joseph Arthur & Gary Go under the moniker The Actor. In the past year alone she's performed on The Late Show with David Letterman, made her debut as a visual artist at Bushwick Open Studios, shared the stage with Jeff Ament (Pearl Jam) and Mike Mills (REM) during Arthur's Lou tribute album tour, and had her various creative offerings featured in Paste, USA Today, the Apple Keynote address, and at Sundance Film Festival and SXSW Interactive.

She can currently be found in New York City playing shows with her band, working on her upcoming solo EP, and fronting retro-dance duo Fever High with bandmates Adam Schlesinger and Anna Nordeen.
Edith Pop
Edith Pop is comprised of best friends Tim Oakley (formerly of Mathematicians and Phantogram) and Laura Hajek (pandha piranha), Aided by Oscar Allen (BBDDM) on guitar and Miles Lally on bass. The songs featured on the premiere EP capture both the joyful hope and deep ennui of trying to reconcile the banality of daily life with the excitement of teenage faith in rock and roll. Based in New York, Edith Pop's debut EP is currently an independent project produced by Tim Oakley and Stitch.
Brian DeGraw of Gang Gang Dance (DJ)
"Brian Degraw's name is synonymous with the never ending party that is NYC that includes, amongst its many guests: the poets, freaks, composers, jazz musicians, rock bands, DJ's, abstract expressionists and dancers that have come before and will continue to arrive, looking for the party, after we are long gone.

In this tradition Brian's work encompasses an outlook, informed by their visions of heaven and hell, as vibrant as the city's art and cultural history. Of course, like at any party, there will always be those that overstay their welcome (and so complain that it his grown boring), get the wrong address or neglect to bring a bottle or contribute something of their own. It's a tough call to know what to bring to the greatest party in the world (NYC in neon as photographed by William Klein), when so much has already been given and people will keep arriving to see what's has not been taken or ransacked already.

Brian's gifts have been both generous and numerous and for this reason NYC has made him one of theirs to be remembered in the future and cherished whilst he is still here."
