Static and Surrender
Static and Surrender
Made up of members of venerable Bay Area rock bands The Trophy Fire, Pine and Battery, and Cold Hot Crash, national award-winning singer songwriter Jeff Campbell was recruited by brothers Adam & John Schuman to write and record new ideas. The result is a body of songs that all 3 were excited enough about to recruit decorated Berkeley producer Jim Greer (The Rondo Brothers, Foster the People) to help them bring their ideas to life. The members’ combined careers boast multiple festival appearances, regular radio play on 3 major Bay Area radio stations, a performance on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show, onstage appearances with and support for Filter, Train, John Mayer, The Killers, Modest Mouse, Silver Sun Pickups, The Shins, and The Raconteurs. The name Static and Surrender was given to the project to symbolize the members' surrender to the static that they felt their individual careers had settled into, and their hopes that joining forces would open new doors for them collectively.”
Everything Turned to Color
Everything Turned to Color
Native to Brooklyn, NY, Everything Turned to Color is the musical stepchild of veteran songwriters Bryan and Kyle Weber and Neha Jiwrajka. Awash in melody and whimsically reminiscent of the Folk/Jazz songsmiths of yesteryear, the group delivers heartfelt compositions echoing the nostalgia of generations past.

While collectively the band members have played over 1,000 shows in 49 states and 17 countries, the trio itself only began performing in September of 2015 and has already garnered featured performance slots at many notable venues and festivals throughout the Northeast and mid-Atlantic, including World Cafe Live, Club Passim, Rockwood Music Hall, Blue, and CMJ, to name a few.

In June of 2016, Everything Turned to Color entered the studio with esteemed musician and producer Blake Morgan to record the band's debut release. On March 31, 2017 the band will release that album at Rockwood Music Hall stage 3 over two consecutive sets - 7 PM and 8:30 PM. All concert attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the record to take home with them.
Brian Dolzani
Brian Dolzani
The music of Connecticut singer/songwriter Brian Dolzani has been called 'medicine for the soul' (Lonesome Noise) and 'remarkably affecting' (No Depression). His introspective songs hit you on a deep-soul level and are at once emotionally revealing, steady and soothing. Not strict to one genre, Brian's songs are a mix of folk, americana, blues, and rock, and are strongly rhythmic and impressively well-crafted. He has been written about in the NY Times, as well as complimented by Bill Payne, the legendary keyboardist for Little Feat, as having a 'great voice and great songs.' Most listeners notice more than a little Neil Young in his voice too, which is not surprising as Mr. Young is one of Brian's foremost influences.

Brian tours nationally and has shared the stage with James McCartney, Cory Chisel, The Subdudes, Bill Payne, Christopher Paul Stelling, Joe Fletcher, The Black Lillies, Peter Case, Freedy Johnson, and many others.

'Dolzani exists somewhere between the sawdust covered floors of Southern dance halls and the green fields of the best folk festivals.' - Lonesome Noise

Brian's latest album is 'A Place That I Can Feel', recorded to 16-track analog tape and released in June 2015.
