Montauk Rockers Liquid Phase Bring Unique Perspective to Lead Singer’s Journey From LI to NYC Working on The World Trade Center with “Bright Colors”

The Song Chronicles the Journey of Singer Joe Coss and His Travels From LI’s East End to New York City As He Worked as Lead Mechanical Engineer On The New World Trade Center

Liquid Phase1

From 2005 to 2013, Joe Coss – lead vocalist of Long Island based band Liquid Phase spent his days traveling from Long Island to downtown New York City to work as the Lead Mechanical Engineer on the new World Trade Center. His journey became chronicled in the band’s song “Bright Colors”, which brings to light the poetic landscapes from the cliffs of the East end to the “Castles” of the cities skyline.

Liquid Phase, the NYC Rock Band from Montauk, is a five piece rock outfit featuring Coss on Vocals and Guitar, Jamie Grubb on Keyboards, Dan Zellan on Guitar and Vocals, Dan Collins on Bass, and Steve Collins on Drums. The band brought its diverse blend of colorful laid-back surf and skate beach music as well as its hard hitting electric rock and alternative sound to stages across the U.S., opening for guitar legend Slash of Guns n’ Roses and famed Southern Rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd.

“Bright Colors” is an infectiously upbeat song which shows Coss’s love for both the city whose most triumphant landmark he’s had the privilege of erecting to the oceanside oasis that is Montauk, NY. This comes to light in the songs lyrics “See a row of purple roses live on the oceanfront // And the cliffs of Earth eroding slower than we have fun // When I climbed up the iron ladder the sky was the bluest one // Looking out as our friends were leaving just as the keg was done” and coming full-circle with “Look West as the sun sets, castle stands in our way // Out East there’s an orange moonrise, radar’s aimed our way”.

The song – coupled with Coss’s diverse background (from his days as a Berklee College of Music student to his work in theoretical physics) and his relationship with legendary Singer/Songwriter Paul Simon and wife Edie Brickell – have made for an incredibly unique blend of infectious rock and pop. The band was invited by Brickell to rehearse in Simon’s home studio in Montauk while Joe also worked on Guitar Lead’s and Charts with Edie before receiving a prized gift – Edie’s custom Orange Electric Tom Anderson Guitar.

Now, as the band continues to write and perform throughout the NY area and all over Long Island – they’ll bring their unique sound to fans new and old!

Singer/Songwriter Mariel Darling Releases First Single and Video “No Mirrors”

Having Gotten Her Start In Music at the Tender Age of 9 and Transformed Into a Powerful Social Media Music Influencer, The Young Star Has Made an Empowering Debut About Transforming Oneself Through Mind, Body and Spirit

Mariel1.JPG

With a bold tenacity that shines bright in her music and brand new video, it’s no wonder singer/songwriter Mariel Darling has already had a headstart in her music career having been performing and building her career for the past seven years. And with her brand new single and video “No Mirrors, she continues to make waves in the ever growing and changing world of music media.

A Western Massachusetts native, 16yr old Mariel Darling started recording music when she was only nine years old after being discovered by manager Jackie Sarkis (formerly of Radio Disney) and working with producer Shaun Bless, and by age ten she was already turning heads performing at the New York Knicks halftime show. Even in her early years, the young singer knew that she wanted to use her talent to help promote positive messages, and by eleven she was already hard at work writing and performing songs for the National Education Institute encouraging other kids in a fun and upbeat way to read, study, and focus on their education as a way to further their well-being. These initiatives lead Darling to perform on bigger national stages and festivals including the Maritime Festival, Washington D.C.’s CureFest for Childhood Cancer, and the Camplified Tour which saw her perform in front of thousands of teens and tweens at summer camps across the nation at fourteen.

Cut to 2017, and Darling has become an emerging star in the new music world of social media! A verified, crowned “Muser” and host of the globally syndicated show “Jukebox Countdown” on Musical.ly’s “Live.ly TV”, she quickly grew to have a large number of fans on the popular music app. Constantly writing and collaborating, she’s been recently working with major label producer/songwriter Cass Dillon, while consulting with Artist Manager/Developer Stefano DiBenedetto of The Hang Productions.

“All of the things that I let get to me, gonna let them fly away// All of the love that I have in me, Oh It’s gonna set me free//I don’t need no mirrors here, I can see it clearer and clearer”

WATCH: “NO MIRRORS” OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO

Delving into her latest release “No Mirrors”, co-written with Dillon, the song and accompanying video were two incredibly creative experiences for Darling during a time where she was really trying to find herself. “This is a song about being confident on the inside. People, especially young girls, are always looking for external validation” she says, continuing “I wanted to write a song to encourage everyone to stop trying to look a certain way or act a certain way to fit in. As young woman we go through so many transformations – mind, body, soul. We need to stop trying to live up to all of the perfection”.

In the video, which sees her going through persona changes from “glam” to “raw” and finally finding inner beauty, she considered the process to be an amazing experience turning deeply personal lyrics into a unique visual representation. “I start off with a pop star look, trying to be something that I think people expect to see as a female pop star performer, and go through another phase as I look in the mirror. Done with the glam, I find myself in a kind of darker place and then transition into a simple look, nude colors, to show the raw internal me. The video helped me really express what I’m going through. The teenage years are tough- with social media and all of the images you see on Instagram.  It just makes you second guess who you are and try to ‘be like them’, to fit in.

But through all the challenges and triumphs, Darling – who sees Taylor Swift as one of her biggest influences as a multitalented positive role model – still seems to be enjoying the ride. “Being in the studio is such a special experience. In my opinion it’s the hardest work, but the most fun! Its magical and so satisfying to see it all come together right before your eyes!”.

With more music on the way as she continues to write and collaborate with Dillon in 2018, make sure to check out “No Mirrors” today!

Jesse Eplan Releases Latest Video “Floatin” (ft. MVP Chase)

Off His Latest LP “Purple Wave”, The Multi Talented Trap/Hip-Hop/R&B Singer-Songwriter Drops New Banger With Fellow Long Islander MVP Chase

Screen Shot 2018-07-26 at 11.15.44 AM.png

Long Island, NY (July, 2018) — As he rides out his Summer break before making a big move out to Los Angeles, Singer/Songwriter and Producer Jesse Eplan certainly isn’t just kicking back and soaking up the sun as he’s been hard at work on new music, and most recently – a brand new video! Off his latest LP Purple Wave, “Floatin” features fellow Long Island rapper MVP Chase.

LISTEN: Jesse Eplan “Floatin” Ft. MVP Chase

Like many off his latest LP, “Floatin” is a bumpin’ trap jam that showcases Eplan’s ever growing lyrical flow and production work from it’s hard hitting beats to its smooth, laid back tone.

Breaking major ground with the release of his first two major LP’s – 2017’s “Trap Harmony” and 2018’s “Purple Wave“, the Trap and Hip-Hop world is taking MAJOR notice of the rising young star through his collaborations with likeminded artists like Famous Dex (A$AP Rocky, Lil Pump) and Kontraversy (Grafh, LouGotCash), but it seems we’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg that is Jesse Eplan.

With his major influences ranging from artists like Future to Lil Uzi Vert, Chris Brown, Smokepurpp, MadeinTYO and Travis Scott – Eplan has taken their flow, hooks, beat selection, and more into account when creating his own music. Geography has also had a major impact – as a NY native, Eplan took what he learned from the ever growing R&B, Hip-Hop, and Trap scene throughout NYC and Long Island and relocated to Tampa, FL where he attended the University of Tampa. This added yet another dynamic to his creativity, says Jesse “Being in Tampa gave me new elements of a more tropical sound to add to my music. From its overall Summer vibes to the scenery, it really spoke to me along with being able to meet new artists, producers, videographers and entrepreneurs to learn from and collaborate with”. This is evident in “Purple Wave”, which he categorizes as very different from the rap music of today’s generation. With tracks like “Cannon” (Feat. Kontraversy) and “Lost Time” he goes from hardened undertones to giving himself a chance to do some soulful singing. “I listen to these tracks and its very magical” he says, “The more people I ask, the more feedback I get on how expansive the album is and how everyone seems to have their own favorite track”.

Screen Shot 2018-07-26 at 11.21.25 AM.png

But with a move to Los Angeles coming, Eplan will be able to continue adding to his ever growing musical palette. And with a new album in the works when he arrives on the West Coast, he’ll surely gain even more perspective on what direction his latest work will lead him.

As They Continue to Climb the Latin Billboard & Heatseeker Charts, The Band Teams with The “Gyal You A Party Animal” Dancehall Singer For Latest Hit

Screen Shot 2018-07-19 at 11.11.53 AM

With their continued ascent on not only the Latin Billboard and Heatseeker charts along with 6 weeks on the Top New Artist Album Sales and the Beatport Top 100 – Latino/Pop/EDM band Monsieur Job is at it again with their latest remix “Kick It” feat. none other than Charly Black!

WATCH: New Monsieur Job Remix “Kick It” ft. Charly Black (Lyric Video) via Basswalk Latino

Toby Holguin dreams music, lives music and gives music life. It was Toby’s vision to create Monsieur Job, a band that will rock you make you move your feet. A band that will make you cry with passion. Formed by Toby Holguin from Cali, Colombia, a beautiful place high in the mountains above the clouds . Toby then asked Stan Kolev, Charlie Illera, and Leo Jaramillo to become one musically as Monsieur Job.

Screen Shot 2018-07-19 at 11.13.50 AM.png

All of them them live and breathe their own style of music combined they are Monsieur Job. Toby, Stan, and Charlie spin records as DJs constantly for different pools and venues around the world. Moreover, Toby had the idea to start doing Urban Music besides Chill Out and Electronic Music, which is the vision that created the album “Bass Passi”. They started dropping broken beats with a more festive, shaky, groovy Caribbean latin flavor turning it into an international exclusive mash up of world talents and a unique blend of genres.

The Bass Passi 1 & 2 albums continue climbing the charts gaining millions of new fans around the globe. Musically, it’s a wonderfully eclectic collection, a deft blend of slick urban beats and Latin grooves, Old World club land electronica meets New World sensual and organic spice. With hits like “Niña Shake Your Body” ft. No Mercy and Vojke Djans, pop fans will love the accessibility, urbanites the sophistication, Latin music aficionados will soak up the sassy rhythms, beach bums will love how it reminds them of sun-drenched tropical days and the dance floor set will just fall for its sultry charms. Lyrically delivered in Spanish, even without understanding the words, the album still weaves a soulful and sensual elegance across the addictive music, proving that it is often the case, and particularly in the case of dance music styles, that the message isn’t so important as the overall sound of the track and so language barriers are no issue.

Holguin met Black (A.K.A. Desmond Méndez) while visiting Jamaica three years ago. Their latest remix of “Kick It” is their first collaboration. The group also recently his at #2 on the Latin Album Sales charts as well as Rhythm Latin and New Artist Album charts, and Beatport Top 100!

NYC-Based Band All Types of Kinds To Perform LIVE at Adventureland In Farmingdale Wednesday, August 1st

Mixing A Unique Blend of Influences From Rock to Blues, Folk, and Hip-Hop – The Bands Unique Multi-Genre Approach Lends A New Perspective to Alternative Music

Screen Shot 2018-07-17 at 1.58.25 PM

In a city often oversaturated with musicians of every genre constantly performing and creating, it takes a special group of artists to truly stand out amongst the crowd that produce a truly unique sound, and New York City’s All Types of Kinds truly live up to the namesake. With an upcoming show slated for Wednesday, August 1st at one of Long Island’s oldest amusement parks – Adventureland (2245 Broad Hollow Road (RT.110) Farmingdale, NY, 11735) park-goers will have the chance to experience the band LIVE for the very first time! But for those who still can’t get enough of the band – catch them July 29th at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn AND at the Long Beach International Film Festival’s Concert on the Beach on Friday, August 3rd at 4PM!

All Types of Kinds (or ATOK) plays a wide variety of music ranging from rock to pop, folk, punk, funk, hip-hop, blues, jazz, and country – even sometimes all at once. The members come from diverse backgrounds that make for an amalgamation of musical textures and vibes. Their EP, “Love Songs (Or Songs For Your Ex)” debuted on Valentine’s Day 2018 and they are currently gearing for dates all over the country.

The band consist of Ray Rubio (Guitar), Billy Conahan (Guitar), Berk 0 (Percussion), and Rocco Stroker (Guitar) – all of whom have unique musical backgrounds. Ray, 20, a multi genre artist and singer/songwriter, hails from Harlem NY and has also been on stage from young age, mainly theater productions. Ray attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in 2014, and since then has been performing his music in the New York Metro Area and Richmond, Virginia. Billy, 25, is a queens native whose been on the stage since his early teens as a stand-up comedian, singer/songwriter folk artist playing his own folk tunes as well as cover tunes. Berk O, singer and percussionist, is from Brooklyn and also contributes to the band’s songwriting process, while Rocco is the newest member of the band – playing bass, guitar and as an incredible vocalist. He hails from New Fairfield, Connecticut.

Screen Shot 2018-07-17 at 1.57.00 PM.png

With the goal of becoming a full-time, self-sufficient, self-produced band, able to tour and create their own audio and video products on a regular basis, they plan to soon follow up their debut with a sophomore effort in late 2018. Unlike other bands who strive for major-label greatness, ATOK shys away from fitting into an industry mold, and often scoff at the idea of being referred to as a ‘boy band’.

Believers in finding a way to share their music while remaining firmly in the driver’s seat, they continue to write, practice, and enjoy playing their music for any crowd that will have them. Making friends from all over the world by busking on the NYC streets has even allowed them to meet and collaborate with like-minded musicians.

Now, as they get ready for THREE upcoming performances – Sunday, July 29th at The Knitting Factory, Wednesday, August 1st at Adventureland, and at the Long Beach International Film Festival’s Concert on the Beach on Friday, August 3rd – there’s plenty of opportunities to catch these recent “Your Big Break” contest winners who’ve been praised for their “polished precision, sweet harmony, musicianship, artistry, versatility and originality in their smart lyrics”.
