LACHI: Urb/Pop/Alt songstress Lachi and her stellar band are one of the most critically acclaimed in all of NYC. Lachi has been tearing up the New York City scene with her stirring blend of pop, rock and soul since she hit the stage in 2007. The multi-talented singer/songwriter and performer takes her music to the next level with anthemic tunes, an affirmative celebration of life driven by soaring, instantly catchy hooks. It exhorts listeners to accept others; to live, and to love life. Her eclectic tracks deliver bright pop melodies, driven by phat rock guitar riffs, touches of funk and electro, and a hint of ska which showcase Lachi’s powerful vocals.
Bianca Boom: Influenced by female artists like Odetta, Joni Mitchell, and Amy Winehouse, Bianca Boom puts her own take on acoustics. A player of strings and electric things, her favorite color is Blue. Counting rap as a form of folk music, she’s sure to give you a different take on the world. Letting her eclectic heritage guide music from the Soul. In 2013, she brings to bear a sound that takes you through the stories of her many travels through the US and the World in the spirit of Reggae, Blues, Folk, and Hip-Hop. Having most recently been brought into the Boom One Records family, a North Carolina based label specializing in Reggae and Electronic music, we are sure to hear more releases of her haunting vocals in the near future.
