Elison Jackson
Elison Jackson
Elison Jackson is a garage–folk/ psychedelic rock band from Philadelphia, PA & New Haven, CT. The band has put out three records and several bedroom-demo mix-tapes since 2011. Their third LP, “Do Not Fear To Kill A Dead Man”, was released in the fall of 2013 to critical acclaim. Featuring basement organs, haunted lyrics and Neil Young-esque guitar jams, their sound has expanded significantly from its folk roots, moving forward with a strong foundation into blues, 80's analog synth, and prog-rock. Their newest record, a 5-song collection titled "Silver Sounds: Hallucinations", takes a step further in the band's sonic progression. Heavier drums, driving synth, and atmospheric bowed upright bass fill out the songs in a way the band has never achieved before.

Staying busy since their beginnings in 2010, Elison Jackson has emerged as one of the most consistent and unique bands in CT. Sharing the stage with Elvis Perkins, Akron/Family, Mystic Braves, Simone Felice and other like-minded contemporaries, the band has built a loyal following in throughout the Northeast. The band won a Connecticut Music Award for "Song of the Year" in 2014 for their single '2009', and won the New England Music Award for "Songwriter of the Year" in 2015. Primary songwriter and singer Sam Perduta currently resides in Philadelphia, PA, after living and basing the band out of New Haven from 2012-2015.They are currently in the studio recording a follow up to "Silver Sounds: Hallucinations" at the infamous Blazone in New Haven, CT, and have been consistently putting out bedroom recordings throughout the fall and winter of 2016.
The Ferdy Mayne
The story of Shane O’Malley Firek, the single constant member of The Ferdy Mayne, is one of journeys – physical, spiritual, and a combination of the two.

“I was going through massive change when I was writing this material,” Firek explains. His moves from Detroit to Nashville, then to New York City, and now on the eve of the release of his self-titled debut album, to Los Angeles, all inform these songs.
Hnry Flwr
Hnry Flwr (Henry Flower) is an earnest satellite operating on empathic waves sent by their maker -- who after getting fed up with Industry, began innovating brands-as-culture-viruses . His first product as a freelance creator is Hnry Flwr, a b(r)and so life-like it uncannily resembles the very human who constructed him. Hnry Flwr can talk, sing, and cast sound from their instrument, but most impressive is their ability to translate the feelings of human experience into lyrical paradoxes.

They do so with the well-groomed brand- and technical support from the cult of music: Jared Weatherman Walker, Abdon Valdez III, Jamie Buxton (who have supported other brands such as Foxygen, Hellbirds, and Hair, respectively).
