Spring into Sound at Kimock's NYC Residency

Fresh off a sold-out run in California, Steve Kimock kicks off his NYC residency at Sullivan Hall this Wednesday, March 23rd. The weekly Wednesday performance runs through April 6th and features an array of special guest performers such as New Orleans legend Henry Butler, Marco Benevento, Adam Deitch, John Molo, Pete Sears, John Morgan Kimock, with other special and surprise guests. Regarded as a true "musician's musician," Kimock has been coined, "an unknown legend" in a recent CNN piece, and a master of his craft, it's no wonder that Jerry Garcia dubbed him one of his favorite unknown guitar players.

Kimock has gone out of his way to maintain an authentic relationship with his instrument and his sound. Many focus on music specifically, not dealing with sound as the main component. For Kimock, the sound is the reason that he plays and the music is the vessel. With excitingly stunning guitar explorations coupled with melodic mastery and remarkable improvisation, Kimock's distinctive ability to elevate sonically, creates indescribable moments of transcendence for his loyal audiences.

Blending genres from rock, jazz, blues, to middle-eastern and almost everything in between, Kimock has played with some "main" bands over the years, most notably Zero, KVHW, the Other Ones, and was part of the legendary Phil & Friends lineup in '99, a few incarnations of The Steve Kimock Band and most recently the electronica outfit PRAANG. With his keen ability to step onto any stage at any time, and constantly raise the bar with all sorts of bands through a wide-range of genres, Kimock's guitar playing is the stuff of legends.

The Sullivan Hall residency will kick off promptly at 9 PM for three consecutive Wednesday night performances beginning on March 23rd and will run through April 6th -- and in typical Kimock fashion, each night will have its own flavor, sure to bring some unexpected surprises.

Tickets $20 and available at www.kimock.com and http://www.sullivanhallnyc.com.

Sleepy Rebels Announce New Album, "Yellow Tree"

Powerful Company will be releasing some breath-taking projects in 2011. Jeremy Adelman and Samantha Balassa formed the company. The pair are a true mom & pop musical powerhouse who found great success handling original music production and composition for advertising including national campaigns for VW, Hulu, Jaguar, and JCPenney. Their desires to make music outside the confines of the corporate creative process lead them to establish Powerful Company whose establishing project is the development and marketing of Sleepy Rebels. The New York based trio, collaboration comprised of Jeremy Adelman and siblings Bruce and Erica Driscoll, have designs to re-establish the coolness of positive sentiments and ideals. Yellow Tree is the manifesto that soundtracks their rebellion!

The pastoral images, sun drenched arrangements and sparkling melodies hit you like the first wave of the summer. “Let’s Take the Day Off” is a call to claim some time for yourself and hit the beach with that special someone. It’s instantly memorable hook will incite you to plan your next vacation day! “You Can Make the Sunrise” reminds listeners that everything is possible and that we all have the potential for greatness. The voices on the album are having a romance with the world itself.  The dreamy string arrangement on “We’ll Wake the World Up” underscores the songs narrative of waking up with someone you love just before daybreak. The record closes with “Something”, a soulful romp full of handclaps and horns. For an early listen of album track "You Can Make The Sunrise," download the MP3 HERE.

Powerful Company has quickly transformed from a 2 person team into a modern art factory attracting advertising's (and other industry's) greatest talent of freethinking writers, producers, musicians, directors, editors & designers who all share the same need to create content with artistic statements. Powerful Company has the capability to create through limitless channels including music, video, design, film & art.   In the first months of 2011, they will unveil the first few projects created by this team of talent; they include three films that serve as music videos for Sleepy Rebels. Both surreal in nature, they are intended to establish the band with aesthetic & clever visual imagery & technique.  The first video for the band's song “Magic Girl” reveals the band as eccentric street performers in a remote town in an unknown history & geography.  The second video for the song “Unbelievable” takes the unknown history & geography further and is an unexpected and surreal love story that happens in the most peculiar way.  The third video for dreamy “Looking Glass” finds a woman reflecting on love and looking towards the future as she walks the desolate cobblestone streets of a European town. The final project to be unveiled in the coming months will be a step away from typical band promotional material and will involve a collaboration with the high art world.
