Graham Colton, who has been featured on American Idol,Pretty Little Liars, and other popular television shows, is beginning an exciting and terrific new project called "Sooner the Sunset." Colton is singing to a new tune, he has incorporated some new sounds and added a new voice to the mix, Lindsey Ray. The album is more electronic, which has added some very interesting twists into Colton's creative process. Sooner The Sunset, which started out as an experiment, has opened up new pathways into the brain. Colton says, "It's not only fun for me, but seems kind of honest and authentic and it's not really hitting the same spot I've hit before."

Colton has entered a "tipping point" in his life, the moment where all things change. And some of these changes involve getting "weird" with his new album, thanks to borrowed equipment from the Flaming Lips, and inviting fans into his living room for a show. That's right, Colton says, "I think it gives the fans a different type of show and a more intimate experience. Since I sell a product people can get for free, I try to build relationships with fans. People can pay whatever they want, or tip me whatever they want. I think it builds trust and a relationship."

Mikey Wax It all started back on Long Island, where Wax embraced the music of Billy Joel, James Taylor, Dave Matthews Band and other substantive artists from an early age. Taking his time to develop his craft and piano chops, Mikey self-released his debut album "Change Again" just 3 years ago. With a distinctive voice, exciting soul-infused pop/rock sound, and passionate live performances, Mikey Wax appears to be on the verge of breakthrough success.

When Jeff LeBlanc started his senior year of high school in a small town on the East End of Long Island, he had no idea that he would have a future in music, let alone selling out New York’s prestigious Joe’s Pub and other national venues a few years later. Jeff's new album, "Worth Holding On To" recorded in Nashville, was released in August of 2011 at a soldout show headlining New York’s Highline Ballroom. It gained national attention by quickly rising to #3 on the iTunes Top 200 Singer/Songwriter Chart and #160 on the overall charts.
