Molly with Charles
Molly with Charles
Molly with Charles is a Bay Area-based collaboration between singer Molly Arizona and composer Charles Nutrivore. Their style ranges from smooth contemporary R&B to upbeat neo-soul. The band draws a lot of inspiration from the exacting, soulful minimalism of artists like Sade, Frank Ocean and John Mayer, and their live performances have drawn comparisons to popular neo-soul groups such as Hiatus Kiayote, Daniel Caesar and Phony Ppl. Their work is also a testament to the diversity of the Bay Area music scene, with contributions from Vacaville jazz trumpeters, South Berkeley rappers and Oakland guitarists. The duo has released two EPs and is currently working on their first full length album.
The Rare Occasions
The Rare Occasions
The Rare Occasions are a 4 piece indie rock band from Los Angeles. The band first turned heads in their native Providence, Rhode Island when they won the WBRU Rock Hunt, headlined the Summer Concert Series at Waterplace Park, and performed in front of packed audiences at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel and The Met. Meanwhile, they tore through the Boston club circuit, building a dedicated following.


The Rare Occasions went on to perform for festival audiences at SXSW and CMJ, as well as open for international touring acts, including Guster, Dirty Heads, Lupe Fiasco, AJR, and Knox Hamilton. “Dysphoric” took home the coveted ‘Song of the Year’ award in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest in 2014.

Currently the band has been expanding their West Coast presence and establishing themselves in Los Angeles. In the midst of all their live shows, the band recorded a set of new material and released it this may. They’re currently on tour promoting their debut album.

MAMA BRD
MAMA BRD
Mama Brd blends soul, R&B, and rock with a singer songwriter aesthetic. With delightful harmonies, tasty guitar licks, and dynamic rhythm their sound is exciting and comforting all at once. Mama Brd is an all around crowd pleaser.

Comprised of Bay Area natives, Mama Brd is a collaborative project showcasing each member’s exceptional talents. With Austin Prince songwriting, singing, and serenading on acoustic guitar, Phil Stein-Webber harmonizing and holding down the rhythm, and Andrew Harris filling out the sound on electric guitar the band has been praised for their original tunes and covers alike.

The group got their start busking on the streets and continues to pound the pavement spreading their sound.
