Based in Boston and soon to be a graduate of Berklee, Florio writes pop music with a purpose and a sound harkening back to the days of '80s synth pop, raw lyrics, and feelings. Amid the recent '80s pop revival, he offers a sound that is a bit less obvious but more calculated. Unlike the wailing, almost unapologetic chorus of the Duran Duran era that many current pop acts are trying to reproduce, Florio finds his way with a combo of groovier modern sounds and skillful instrumentals.
Boston-based Amy & the Engine specializes in upbeat synth pop with a folk rock sensibility. Hailing from South Portland, Maine, singer-songwriter and frontwoman Amy Allen has been playing guitar since age nine, and now her passion for music has become her career. Vanyaland calls the band's music “quirky pop” with a “catchy, earworm style.”
Isaac is a pop singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist with an infectious and intricately textured sound. His layered recording style owes much to his world-class training as a jazz musician. An alumnus of the elite Berklee Global Jazz Institute, he has toured in festivals in New York; Paris; Panama City, Panama; Siena, Italy; and Monterey, California. In addition, he has taught at New Delhi's Global Music Institute in India, where he also toured. He performed at a royal Rajasthani wedding; headlined a rock festival in the largely tribal northeastern state of Meghalaya; and played to audiences in Goa, Pune, Guragon, Mumbai, and New Delhi. Since his return to the U.S. in the spring of 2014, he has been working to create a new persona as a pop singer-songwriter.
