With the release of his self-titled debut on Blue Note Records in 2004, Amos Lee immediately earned the attention of not only the press and discerning music fans, but also of his fellow artists. The Philadelphia-born former schoolteacher has toured with legendary artists like Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, collaborated with Norah Jones, Lucinda Williams, Alison Krauss, Calexico and Zac Brown Band, and been touted as a favorite songwriter and performer by the likes of The Band Perry and Lady Antebellum. He followed his debut with the critically acclaimed Supply and Demand (2006) and Last Days at the Lodge (2008). 2011’s Mission Bell entered the Billboard 200, Amazon, and iTunes charts at No. 1 and contained the No. 1 Triple A radio hit “Windows Are Rolled Down.” His latest album, Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song (2013), is an outstanding synthesis of blues, gospel, country, and funk that topped the Americana charts for two consecutive months. The New York Times hailed it as “serenely sure-footed” while Elmore noted it “may be Lee’s finest yet.” Produced by Jay Joyce, the album features guest vocals by Alison Krauss and Patty Griffin. Lee is a supporter of Musicians On Call, a non-profit organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities.
Bailen
Bailen
When they're not touring with jazz virtuoso Raul Midón, or starring on London's West End in the hit show Close to You; Bacharach Reimagined, 25 year old twins Daniel (Bass) and David Bailen (Drums) are playing and singing in three part harmony with their 19 year old sister Julia (Guitar) in their band BAILEN. The three have been writing songs and performing since they can remember. As children, the siblings were all soloist in the Metropolitan Opera's children's chorus, singing along side the likes of Pavarotti, Rene Fleming and Placido Domingo. And before that, they were performing and touring with their parents, both professional NYC freelance musicians. Childhood friend Pierre Piscitelli (Keyboards) is the fourth member of BAILEN, and the only "non" Bailen, but the band says they are working on the paper work.

BAILEN has collaborated with artists such as Burt Bacharach, Bill Withers Alex Clare, Raul Midón, Jon Batiste and Stay Human, AJR, Kyle Riabko, Dianne Reeves, Liz Wright, Richard Bona, Marcus Miller, Bob Thiele Jr. and Joe Mardin. They have written music for Sons of Anarchy, Victoria's Secret, Paper Magazine, Marc Jacobs, Ansel Elgort and can be heard on Raul Midón's new album "Don't Hesitate" as well as Jon Batiste and Stay Human's "My NY." In 2014 they won the Elfenworks Foundation songwriting award: In Harmony With Hope. They have performed internationally and are regular guests at Madison Square Garden for the National Anthem. Grammy U and College Battle named them the best college band in the Northeast.

This past year the band has been cultivating a presence in London, where they have played dozens of shows, recorded with Grammy winning engineer Ricardo Damian (Uptown Funk), and have garnered a faithful following within the London folk scene as well as in NYC. The groups' three-part sibling harmonies have been compared to The Fleet Foxes and The Staves, and Entertainment Weekly described them as having "harmonies to rival Simon Garfunkel."
