Los Angeles native Cassandra Violet sings and whistles songs that are part folk, part chamber pop, part sweet Caribbean breeze.
Nightgown
Nightgown
Nightgown is the project of LA based musician and singer/songwriter Laurel Noone. Originally hailing from outside the colorful port city of Baltimore where she studied opera, philosophy, and the art of disillusionment, Laurel now focuses her energies into writing sweet-n-low-down rock-n-roll. Her sound seamlessly shifts between delicate, color-washed dream-pop to biting, straightforward garage rock with lyrics that walk a fine line between sincerity and tongue-in-cheek. Nightgown is currently breaking from her streak of musical reclusiveness and slowly releasing her self-produced lo-fi demos. Be sure to expect the unexpected from this debuting artist.

Lucy & La Mer is the American Folk-Pop project of singer/songwriter Lucy LaForge.

The Folk-Pop band will be releasing their debut EP Little Spoon this April 6th, 2015. The long-awaited record includes 5 original tracks, written by lead singer Lucy LaForge and recorded live at a home studio in Echo Park. Their songs, described as “a cutesy yet sardonic and eccentric blend of a Folk, Alternative, and Pop sound” were written by LaForge during a rough patch post-college, when she took to living out of boat and learned how to play ukulele in between grad school applications.

“We can expect an arsenal of instruments to appear [on the upcoming EP]” reported Free Bike Valet music blogger Dan Frazier. Fitting somewhere between a Wes Anderson soundtrack and an Ingrid Michaelson album, the debut EP Little Spoon will be officially self-released on April 6th, 2015.

Lucy leads an acoustic collaboration of musicians on her baritone ukulele, including GRAMMY winning percussionist Matthew Cook (LA Percussion Quartet/ Partch Ensemble) and jazz bassist Jon Lee Keenan (LA Master Chorale). The trio was voted to be part of the Echo Park Rising Music Festival in 2014 and also performed for Los Angeles’ Mayor Garcetti at the Sierra Club’s 50th Anniversary last year.

Lucy collaborates with local West Coast artists, as well as international acts (touring with Australian singer/songwriters in 2014). She also performed as a back-up singer for EDM legend Moby in two of his live shows in 2014.

Their homemade record is a small collection of ukulele-driven pop songs that poke at the seriousness of being an adult, both in romantic relationships and as a working professional. In their biting single “Just Friends,” Lucy unapologetically conveys a “veracious account of today’s hook up generation” says Life of A Rockstar journalist Nicole Hanratty. Their debut song raised enough support from fans in 2013 to fully fund the band’s first music video via a Kickstarter Campaign.

“I’m so grateful to have constant support from my fans,” Lucy stated. “It’s reassuring to know that people are relating to the songs and are excited to hear more. We can’t wait to see what they think of Little Spoon.”

Lucy & La Mer’s debut EP Little Spoon was recorded by Jonathan Nesvadba at Pearl Tone Studios (Moby / Larry Gatlin) and mixed by Bill Rahko (Paul McCartney / Daft Punk ). It was Mastered by Geoff Pesche at Abbey Road Studios and will be released on April 6th, 2015.
