Out of New York City and Boston, Iris Lune stretches the boundaries of alternative and indie rock, creating a stirring new sound. Drawing inspiration from acts like Radiohead, Bjork, and Bon Iver, Iris Lune brings captivating lyrics tied to gut-wrenching melodies that leave you breathless. Currently the band is working on their upcoming EP and performing at venues all over the Northeast. They are "a change of pace in Boston rock, and a sound that's worthy of your attention," according to the popular Boston music blog Allston Pudding.

Hailing from Geneva, Switzerland, bassist and composer Alissia Benveniste has been enjoying the success of her original funk tune “Let It Out” with her band, Alissia and the Funketeers. A video of the song has turned into a YouTube phenomenon, garnering more than a million views in less than a year. This success has spurred a momentum in the bassist's career that manifests itself in a variety of projects she is currently undertaking. Be it headlining a number of festivals with the Funketeers or working on her upcoming album (due in the spring of 2015), Benveniste and her band are happy to be bringing funk to a newer, younger, digitally-groomed generation.

3 Sudacas

3 Sudacas are a trio formed by Esther Rojas from Colombia (bass), Marianella Rojas from Venezuela (voice/percussion), and Eduardo Mercuri from Brazil (guitar). They fuse traditional music genres from their native countries with jazz harmony and pop elements for a subtle, fresh sound. They met at Berklee two years ago and have been playing together since then. They were part of the band that played with Alejandro Sanz (three time Grammy Award winner and 16 time Latin Grammy Award winner) at the Latin Grammy Awards in November 2013. In addition, they performed at the Summer in the City Series in Boston in 2014 and were part of the band that played at the Future of the Americas, organized by the Clinton Foundation, in Miami, Florida in December 2014.
 
Guitarist Mercuri is also a mandolinist, composer, and arranger who graduated with a B.M. in performance in 2014. His Brazilian roots create an incredible mixture with the Latin grooves that Esther, who is currently majoring in contemporary writing and production, brings from her background. The last Sudaca, Marianella, is a double major in vocal performance and contemporary writing and production and brings to the group a jazz/pop sound with her voice.
 
3 Sudacas are currently working on their first album, which is expected to be released in 2015.
