Formed in early 2017, Springbrooke is a band based out of Bucks County, Pa. They provide an honest and blue collar style of music that Springbrooke dub as “Tried & True Music”. Led by the vocal styling of Ryan Williams, Springbrooke takes you on a journey with heartfelt lyrics, autobiographical stories and an edge that is in your face. Williams (Guitar, Mandolin & Harmonica) is joined by Matthew Amend (Bass), Trevor Scott (Drums), Sean Clement (Guitar & Mandolin) and Chris Conner (Lap Steel & Guitar). Springbrooke is not bound by one genre of music. Whether it is Country, Blues, Rock or Top 40, Springbrooke transcends and adds their own spin to timeless classics and present hits. Springbrooke recently recorded their debut album, “Tried & True” in January 2018. “Tried & True” is slated for a late Spring/early Summer release.
with Eli Lev and The Fortunes Found:
Eli performs as a solo artist and with his new band, The Fortunes Found – featuring the powerful rhythms of all-star D.C. drummer Michael Miraglia, the big bass tones of wunderkind Bojan Novevski from Macedonia, and the folk melodies of Baltimore-based mandolin player Corey Thuro.
With the new addition of lead guitar wizard Dante Frisiello – their full, neo-folk sound is truly something to behold on stage. The band's infectious musicality, commitment to deep grooves, and soulful charisma foster an immersive experience for the audience that moves bodies and hearts.
With the full-band-sound of The Fortunes Found, Eli Lev's live shows are becoming one of the hottest ticket on the local DMV music scene.
A combination of Adele, Pink, Alanis Morrissette and Tracy Chapman; Emma G describes her sound as soul pop-rock.
Musician, singer, songwriter, Emma G's sultry tones are punctuated with a gutsy quality that hammers home her messages of empowerment, love and respect.
After releasing eight singles, and successfully charting a number 10 album on the New Zealand Top40 with her band, Static Era; Emma G moved to Washington DC from Auckland, New Zealand to pursue a solo career in music in November 2015. Working full time as a street performer, she also plays in various clubs, bars and community events throughout the city — and often far beyond. In the last year, she has played The Whitehouse, The Kennedy Center, The National Cherry Blossom-, and Smithsonian Folklife festivals, Arena Stage, toured California twice (including iconic music venues The Mint and The Viper Room), completed an 18 date tour of New Zealand, released two solo acoustic EP's, her studio singles «King for a Day» and “SOLD (Take a Shot), her debut studio album “Taking Flight”, and been featured three times on Fox5, in Washingtonian Magazine's «Best of DC» edition, and had some radio play.
“Music has always been my voice”, Emma G explains. “It’s my voice of strength – of unity – and of self-expression. I’ve had 24 surgeries in my life; friends end their lives, and had my share of grief; but music has always been a beacon of hope and light”.
She has fast become an established and much-loved personality on DC's busking circuit, where she is known as the Kiwi girl who plays great songs and gives great hugs. «It's great, because the spirit of the city is incredible,» she said in a 2016 interview. «The people are super nice, and really supportive of what I do.» But with her career blossoming and fame surely beckoning, who knows what is around the corner. «Life is an adventure. The best adventures have unknown outcomes.»
