Grey Season
Grey Season is a five-piece folk rock band based out of Boston. The members met in 2011 and began crafting their music by busking on the streets of Boston and Cambridge, learning how to please and cultivate an audience in the process. Their debut EP, Troilus, was released in May 2013, and since then they have performed at a variety of venues throughout the Northeast, from radio stations, basements, pop-up markets, and conventions to galleries, bars, colleges, and concert venues. They have appeared as a spotlight artist at one of the secret shows organized by the Boston branch of Sofar Sounds, an organization that showcases emerging independent artists from around the world. 
 
In January 2014 after a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign, Grey Season recorded their first full-length LP with Grammy-winning engineer Justin Guip and Boston Music Awards producer of the year Benny Grotto in Levon Helm Studios. Released in April 2014, the album exemplifies their constantly evolving sound and has already been garnering attention among their expanding local listenership. Time Will Tell You Well has received critical and popular acclaim in the Boston community, and the band has been playing across the Northeast in support of its release.

Yousif Yaseen

Yousif Yaseen is a singer and guitarist who writes colorful music inspired by the multicultural human experience. His songs and compositions are a collage of musical sources with a particular emphasis on bringing out unique Eastern modalities in a Western musical framework. Yaseen grew up in Kuwait and started playing music at an early age. As a teenager, he was involved in the local rock scene and listened to artists such as Bjork, Radiohead, and Pat Metheny. In college, an interest in traditional Arabic music led him to study oud briefly with virtuoso Simon Shaheen, whose teachings he eventually adopted into his guitar playing and singing. Yaseen is currently in his final year at Berklee, where he is studying professional music with a focus on performance and technology.

The Yousif Yaseen Project is an endeavor to take music from a variety of sources and blend it into a sound that is unique and passionate. Elements of jazz, soul, Arabic music, and American folk come together to create songs that are reminiscent of distant daydreams and ominous mountaintops. An international group of musicians with diverse stylistic backgrounds, the band has been playing regularly in the Boston area. They are planning to record their debut album in the summer of 2015.
