Gold Child
Gold Child
Child is a Brooklyn-based psych-folk group fronted by singer/songwriter, Emily Fehler and joined by Jake Beal on drums. Fehler moved to New York after finishing her studies at Berklee College of Music. As she began the process of coming up for air in Brooklyn, she developed an obsession with the music made by the great female troubadours of country music’s golden era — namely the work of luminary songstresses Patsy Cline and Emmylou Harris. Seduced by the raw emotion and timeless melodies of the classics, Fehler — a gifted vocalist herself — had found a new direction and sought to apply her own stamp to the form. With the addition of ethereal, shimmering atmospherics to her own folk songs, Fehler laid the groundwork for what would become Gold Child’s sound.

Gold Child recently released their Sophomore single, “Me And You”, drawing comparisons to Mazzy Star, Angel Olsen, and Neko Case, and is currently working on the band’s debut full length due out this Spring.
Ryne Ziemba
Ryne Ziemba
After years of riding freight trains around the U.S., Ryne Ziemba landed in NYC and spent a few years supporting other songwriters and bands in the Brooklyn music scene as a lead guitar and synth player. It wasn't long before he started experimenting with DIY production and landed on the ragged, sweaty and swaggered style evocative of his mother swamp, Florida, for his debut e.p.: Dirty Sunset #1.

In Dirty Sunset #1, Ryne seeks to conjure the musical stylings of the ghosts of boisterous garage rock and laid-back psychedelia in a whirlwind of songs that promise to leave the listener wanting more.

While primarily a singer and guitar player, Ziemba wrote all the parts for Dirty Sunset #1 and then recorded session musicians, such as Pill's Ben Jaffe (on saxophone), to realize his musical vision. Ryne even built a vocal booth out of scrap wood in the back of his Bushwick apartment.

Ryne Ziemba has also just recorded his first solo full-length, which will be released in 2018.
John The Baptist
John The Baptist
Over a decade ago, John the Baptist dropped out of school to be in a band. After touring extensively in Guards, Sacco, Benjamin Booker, Hideout and Blonder he’s finally stepped out with his first solo record, Many Moods.

Many Moods was born out of frustration, after two years spent writing for other artists. However, after one especially fruitful collaboration with New-York based artist Arum Rae, he decided it was finally time. Referencing A Tribe Called Quest and other boom bap hip-hop groups, the Baptist uses vinyl-sampling to mold his sound. As a one-man band, he relies on loops that dutifully carry his tunes along, sometimes meandering, but always staying within eyeshot and earshot of mom. The songs themselves appeal to our inability to look away from train wrecks, both locomotive and human, while also teasing the innate desire to find love and hang onto it. He is currently producing The Gloomies debut LP and wrapping up The Norwegians record with his wife and collaborator, Karly. The second John the Baptist EP will be released in the summer of 2018.
