Venezuelan Project is a group that was born in 2015, founded by percussionist Alexis Soto and Carlos Capacho. The group focuses on recovering the traditional and folkloric Venezuelan genres and combining them with contemporary genres of the music world, including funk, jazz, Latin, and fusion. The group began as a quartet with original members Josu Ortiz on piano (Caracas, Venezuela), Ali Tovar on bass (Caracas, Venezuela), Carlos Capacho on cuatro (Ciudad Guayana, Venezuela) and Alexis Soto on percussion (Caracas, Venezuela). 

Today, the group has changed a little bit in instrumentation, adding drum set and melodic instruments (where saxophone and harmonica or trumpet highlight the most), but keeping traditional instruments of Venezuelan culture as cuatro and maracas.

Self Portraits

Beach Weather is a three-piece American band formed in 2015, featuring Nick Santino, Austin Scates, and Reeve Powers. Santino, who gained notoriety as the founding member of his former band, A Rock to the Moon, along with his fellow Beach Weather bandmates, has been involved in the music industry for years. Self-described as their own genre of "fuzzy pop," the band's debut EP What a Drag was released in August 2015, with five brand-new tracks. Hot on the heels of the new EP, the band quickly started to gain attention for their energetic live performances out on the road during their first tour together, which was a U.S. national tour as direct support for the band The Maine.

Self Portraits is a female-fronted rock band from Berklee. With a huge modern sound and catchy hooks, Self Portraits brings big rock music to the mainstream. They strive to push the envelope  with soaring guitars and technically difficult music while still creating a product that is easily accessible to all listeners.
