The Ludlow Thieves
The Ludlow Thieves
The Ludlow Thieves, are “equal parts Brooklyn Indie and Midwestern gospel (Consequence of Sound),” that “goes well beyond the borders of soaring folk rock (The New Yorker).” The sound is occasionally lush and often covered in dust; it is a rustic exploration of the grand and the intimate through an American lens.

In their short time together, the six piece have headlined and sold out some of NYC’s most prestigious venues, like The Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg, collaborated with Kanye West on a World Cup commercial, had their music used in The World Series and played the historic Voodoo Music + Arts Festival in New Orleans.

The Ludlow Thieves formed in response to a personal tragedy after frontman Danny Musengo survived a car accident that claimed seven lives. After meditating on the impact of the collision, he moved to NYC and dedicated himself to pursuing his dream--music.

The band’s guitarist and producer, Dan Teicher had been searching for the right band his entire life. At a party, his friend recommended reaching out to Danny Musengo and described his voice as “Rod Stewart on two packs of smokes.” Within weeks the two met, and The Ludlow Thieves were born.

Along their journey, they picked up Laura Martin on vocals, Walker Adams on drums, Isamu McGregor on piano/keys and Amanda Lo on violin.

With a sound that is as enormous as it is exuberant, the music’s intensity can be traced back to an accident along a highway in Iowa.

After releasing 3 EP’s in 2015, the band has a ton of music slated for the beginning of the year. Teicher says, “We have so much music to share. It is going to be a big year and the best yet.”
The Brooklyn based Lover was formed in 2014 by Jordan Robin (Guitar/Vocals) and Byron Kalet (Drums/Bass/Synthesizers). Their music is an exploration of poetic lyricism and a minimalist approach to songwriting that privileges a complexity of feeling over instrumental virtuosity.

To date, Lover has performed live extensively around the New York area as well as select West Coast dates. The band recorded the single “My Knife” with the B-Side

“Challenger” at Plantain Studios (DFA) early 2015 and self released in the Fall digitally and on limited edition 7” vinyl.

In spring 2016 Lover wrote and recorded material for their first full-length album, “Am I Safe?” to be released in early 2017, in conjunction with a video for the single “Romantic Depot” and a follow-up tour. The 10 song record was developed by Drew Citron (Beverly), before being engineered and mixed by Jonathan Krenik (The Rapture, Juan Maclean, Holy Ghost!).
