Punk Infused Anthemic Rock Music - JOUNCE is an East to West Coast band centered in Brooklyn, NY. An ever evolving post punk and 90′s rock hybrid. A product of a well defined generation only re-imagined. Nearly impossible to describe but easily digested. Danny and Matt have been friends since childhood, even through Dan’s bi-coastal lifestyle while he was Nickelodeon’s “Little Pete.” We like to think Pete Wrigley would dig the Jounce.
Marvelous Liars are a rock band from New London, CT. Members include lead guitarist/singer Nicholas Johns, drummer Ben LaRose, bassist Nick Cancelmo, and guitarist Matt Hamilton. In just 4 years they've hit the regional circuit hard, playing NYC, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Boston, Philly and many Connecticut shows.
In addition to consistent regional touring, the band recently wrapped up their sophomore self-titled album. Tracked on the Neve mixing console that captured Nirvana's In Utero, John Lennon's Double Fantasy, and AC/DC's Back in Black, the 10 songs faithfully capture their vision of where rock music is headed. The Telegraph Recording Company released Marvelous Liars in July 2017, available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and more. The album charted on the NACC top 200 for a month.
Here's what critics are saying about the new album:
"Take the swagger and strut of The Stones, mix with some QOTSA-style desert fuzz, and throw in some catchy vocal melodies a la The Strokes, and you still won't exactly nail down Marvelous Liars. The Connecticut rock n rollers are just that, embodying the vibe of old-school rock with a modern edge."
-The Deli Magazine New England
"Through smooth charisma and unbridled amplification, New London, CT trio Marvelous Liars capture the essence of rock & roll."
-New Noise Magazine
"A blossoming talent that embraces various rock influences and some indisputable classics, renders smoky riffs and delivers fun rock ’n’ roll with a modern edge to it."
"Clustered with power chords, and stand-on-the-dance-floor-and-scream-along choruses, the tunes comprise a brisk blast of timeless rock."
-R. Koster, The Day
"...Songs are tightly wound, with starts and stops, precise hits and accents, riffs that compel you to stick the landings."
In June 2016, the band won three "Whalie Awards", including Best Rock Act, Best Rock Song, and Indie/Rock Album of the Year for their debut album Another Castaway, along with being nominated for "Album of the Year" and "Best Rock Band' for this year's Hartford's Best. Marvelous Liars are currently recording new material for the next record.
The Right Offs
The Right Offs are a New Haven, CT. based rock n' roll trio who consistently channel every ounce of joy, grit, and energy they can muster into their music. Fronted by the soulful and instantly memorable vocals of singer/songwriter/guitarist Max Loignon, the band also includes the dynamic rhythm section of Than Rolnick on bass/backing vocals and drummer Bob Breychak. Of their live performances the New Haven Independent said "The Right Offs sounded tight, even tighter than the band is on its last release, and more ferocious, raging around the twists and turns in the band's clever, tightly wound material," while the #NewHavenMusicblog called one of their recent shows "one of the most high energy performances at Cafe Nine in recent memory...". In 2016 the Right Offs self-released their debut album Quiet Down to rave reviews in local press. Chip McCabe's 'The Metal Dad' blog named Quiet Down as the best non-metal album of 2016, while the 'Twangri-La' blog commented, after a favorable review of the album, "I can only imagine their stage presence." In March 2017 NYC's The Deli Magazine named The Right Offs as one of the Best New England Emerging Artists of the year, putting in writing what everyone already knows: The Right Offs are a force to be reckoned with now and in the future beyond. Currently, the boys are working on their sophomore LP due for release in 2018.
