Through a fusion of piano Pop-Rock and Jazz, 24 year-old Singer/Songwriter Matt Simons blends his wealth of influences from Ben Folds and Gavin Degraw to Stevie Wonder and John Coltrane, into an upbeat, eclectic and fresh sound all his own. After graduating Magna Cum Laude as the President’s Award Recipient in Music from the prestigious SUNY-Purchase Conservatory with a degree in Jazz Saxophone Performance, he decided musical academia was not the right path for him. Matt instead sought to follow his affection for songwriting and hasn’t looked back. Supporting his current release Double EP: Living Proof + Fall In Line, Matt has been touring extensively on both the East and West coasts along with numerous shows at the mainstays in New York City, where he resides. His heartfelt, passionate performance with the musical knowledge to back it up has proven to audiences all over the country to be a winning combination.
23 year old, singer-songwriter, Sarah Miles is a young woman with a killer voice, catchy pop melodies, some fabulous high heels, and a hint of twang. As enamored with the sounds of Nashville as she is with the sounds of Brooklyn, Sarah’s songs are as youthful and lighthearted as her spirit…though her lyrics sometimes show a weightier, pensive side.
Well before iTunes sold her first EP, Solid Ground, in 2008, Sarah was belting out songs in her kitchen and making her way in the musical world as the youngest child ever to be admitted to the prestigious Westminster Conservatory Children’s Choir. Experienced from years of singing in a cappella groups (“Around 8″ at Princeton High School and The University of Vermont “Hit Paws”) and choirs (Princeton High School Choir & Princeton Girlchoir) that toured Sweden, Newfoundland & Toronto, and graced the White House & the TODAY Show, Sarah started playing guitar and writing her own songs while she was in high school. She credits Mariah Carey, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, Diane Birch, and Carrie Underwood as just some of her many musical influences.
Sarah has received awards and attracted attention everywhere her voice has carried her…but one expects as much from any talented, budding artist. What stands out is her devotion to finding a unique and honest voice…simply put, Sarah’s music is heartfelt and genuine.
Sarah has toured the U.S. with Teddy Geiger, Tony Lucca, Ingram Hill, Matt Duke, Jesse Ruben, and Pat McGee. She is currently working on her first full length album with NYC producer, Dave Pittenger. Previously recorded EPs can be found under the name, Sarah Jane Wilson on iTunes
