BUTCHER BOY (Maine)
“Their sound is that of warped and electric avant-folk, colored with jazz chords, spacious textures and post-rock dynamics, all executed onstage with precision not unlike a conservatory senior recital. Their music requires attention and patience, but it rewards close listening.”

NAKED (Maryland)
“[Carl] Smith is very open about using the music as a conduit for dealing with his depression, but the gentle nature of the music and the melody coming from Smith’s voice create a healing narrative that take the ugly and force it out of the shadows. Even on the darkest days there is sunshine after the rain.”

ALL NIGHT (Maine)
Although a new outfit to the Portland music scene, All Night is comprised of members who are veterans to heavy & dynamic rock/metal in Maine. Featuring Eric Brackett on guitar (formerly the drummer for Ocean), Sean Hadley on bass (of Conifer) and Michael Hutchins on drums (guitarist of Adamo and Lynx). Harnessing a monolithic/minimalist approach, All Night’s sound projects like a beacon of light through stillness, blackness.
