Drinker
Drinker is the recording project of singer / songwriter Aaron Mendelsohn and producer / composer Ariel Loh. They started working together in the fall of 2016, shortly after they left their former bands. Ariel had just scored The Eyes Of My Mother, a horror film whose premiere at Sundance and following national release was turning heads. The ambient, analog soundscapes felt like the perfect atmosphere for the songs Aaron was writing. A point was made to explore minimal arrangements while pushing the music into different territories, all the while embracing the unexpected. The forthcoming Happy Accident EP was the result of 2 months of collaborating in Bushwick, Brooklyn and Astoria, Queens.

Aaron has since moved to LA and is bringing the songs to the stage with a band. Meanwhile, their creative collaboration continues bi-coastally with new material always brewing.
Shapes in Calgary
Shapes in Calgary
Shapes in Calgary started as a collaboration between songwriter Alyssa Ciorciari and producer Gary Atturio in their tiny, home recording studio.The goal at the beginning was to make simple, small-sounding pop music using only a drum machine and a 1980's synthesizer. The restrictive nature of the project forced the duo to focus mainly on their songwriting and arranging abilities. After completing their first batch of demos, the two felt confident enough to share with close friends and collaborators Tim McCoy (drums) and Billy Libby (guitar). Now a four piece, Shapes in Calgary has maintained their simplistic approach to writing and performing, though they've since fleshed out their skeletal demos. They are currently working on a 5 song EP, which they hope to release in the fall of 2016.
