    anacortes
    anacortes was born out of therapeutic necessity and driven by the musical understanding that great songs are great songs independent of genre or instrumentation. The result is the telecaster-driven, unassuming, passionate sound of Brooklyn-Americana. anacortes is a journey that explores the gray lines of disaster and disease, and the peace that follows the loss of expectations. Musically, for songwriter Shane Chapman, it has been an experiment to write music without any tricks to hide behind; just two guitars, a bass, and some drums. “You can play these songs on a ukulele if you want,” says Chapman. “They’re simple stories.” Shane Chapman moved from Seattle to NYC in 2008 and spends his days working on curriculums and producing content as Director of Online Services for NYC Guitar School or writing music for fringe theater groups. Drums and percussion are played by Ricky Watts, who Chapman met at a street fair in Brooklyn. Watts is a professional drummer who has toured with national acts, and played with countless NYC bands. Woody Quinn (bass) is the lead guitarist for the national act Measure whose works are regularly featured on MTV hit shows such as Teen Mom and Catfish, as well as Pretty Little Liars and Melrose Place. Finally, Emilio Tostado, a Chicago transplant, brings his unique brand of lead guitar and unusually optimistic disposition, a welcome contrast to Chapman's sarcastic cynicism. All four members of the band teach/work at NYC Guitar School. Website: www.anacortesband.com

    Baharat
    Baharat is a band from Brooklyn who play music influenced by Eastern cultures. Common among those cultures is the use of mircotones not found in Western music and sympathetic strings that resonate without being played directly. From the Middle East: oud, an Arabic lute ancestor to the guitar; frame drum and darbuka, a drum in the goblet family popular in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. From India: the sarangi, a short-necked bowed instrument known for resembling the human voice. Baharat seeks to expose the listener to music which provides a sound that is both familiar to the cultures they borrow from and unique unto itself. https://soundcloud.com/baharatband

    The Coyote Anderson Quartet is a new modern-jazz group that performs primarily the original compositions of guitarist Coyote Anderson, who won Honorable Mention in the 2014 ASCAP Young Jazz Composer’s Awards and is a regular member of the BMI Jazz Composer’s Workshop. One thing that makes this ensemble unique is that vocalist Corina Hernandez is used to replace the traditional role of a horn. This allows the ensemble to not only do 'instrumental' tunes but also newer works of Coyote’s that set the poetry of others into a jazz context. The quartet is rounded out by Carl Limbacher on bass and Max Maples on drums, who play together regularly in many NYC based ensembles, including the free jazz trio Ammocake.
