Hank & Cupcakes
Hank & Cupcakes
Flush with simmering sexuality and irresistible dance pulse, Hank & Cupcakes are the coalescence of rock without guitars, pop without synthesizers, everything you would NOT expect them to be. Named in reference to notorious Charles ‘Hank’ Bukowski and one of his lovers ‘Cupcakes’, this Brooklyn based duo by way of Tel Aviv Israel & Melbourne Australia defy modern rock-pop expectations with their full luscious sound, breathtaking stage personas and the brutal honesty with which they play.

Pedal board magician Hank commands an army of pedals with his bass guitar while powerhouse vocalist/drummer Cupcakes dominates the drums standing up (!) while belting out emotive and groove filled vocals, making it difficult to believe there are only two people on stage. With a recklessness reminiscent of Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, an early RHCP rawness, a fun-punk Ting Tings vibe and a ‘The Kills’ raw rock sex appeal, Hank & Cupcakes are the embodiment of all of those, creating a new hybrid of music motivated by true freedom and boundless limits.

Hailed by MTV as a “Fresh new artist with an infectious blend of electro pop goodness” by Paste Magazine as “Irresistibly Danceable” and as having a “Funky Fresh Sound” by the New York Post, the powerful duo are now honing their explosive live performances in front of audiences as they tour the country in support of their second album ‘CA$H 4 GOLD’.

King Holiday
King Holiday
King Holiday is a psychedelic soul band based out of the Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. Socially charged and rhythmically driven, King Holiday's cosmic 10 piece arrangements create sonic layers of raw, unfiltered and thought evoking sounds and melodies. King Holiday's music is a luscious soundtrack to the human experience while remaining nostalgic in the fast moving modern world.
Lewis Lane
"The minute you hear Katherine Smith's voice, you just can't move away. It's one of those rare voices that sounds like singing comes as naturally to her as breathing, and that casual power is what makes Lewis' track "Hunter" so immediately enrapturing."

-The Wild Honey Pie

"From the very first syllable she sings, you know Katherine Smith has something special. Her voice is smokey and powerful – reminiscent of other great songstresses such as Lana del Rey, Adele, Amy Winehouse – but with a sense that it all comes oh so naturally for her, that she's not even trying to reach those notes or make your heart melt with every word she sings."
