The Fontaine Brothers

An acoustic pop-rock/alternative duo from Boston, the Fontaine Brothers blend guitars and bass with taut vocal harmony, and have been performing original work and popular covers for a decade. They recently appaered on National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) showcases across the U.S. and toured with Howie Day. The brothers have also collaborated with producer Warren Huart and songwriters Kyle Patrick, Jesse Ruben, and Zach Berkman.

Check out the Fontaine Brothers' "Always" here:

 

The Doyle Brothers combine the tuneful spirit of classic soul and rock ‘n’ roll with the rhythm and swagger of modern pop. Hailing from Buffalo, New York, they're releasing a slew of new singles from a recording process aptly deemed “the Storm Sessions,” since the pair wrote the songs while trapped indoors without power during Hurricane Sandy in New York City. The brothers then began recording the songs during a severe snowstorm.

Watch "Anything Everything" by the Doyle Brothers here:

 

With delicate arrangements and beautiful orchestration, Alexis Babini showcases his honesty in a debut full length album titled The Pioneer Spirit, which recently cracked the iTunes top 100. Babini combines expressive vocals with lighthearted charm, resulting in hook-filled songs that elicit smiles, foot-tapping, and sing-alongs. Alexis has toured the US sharing the stage with a range of notable acts such as Blues Traveler, Howie Day, Boz Scaggs, the Verve Pipe, Tony Lucca (a finalist on NBC’s The Voice), Ryan Cabrera, Sister Hazel, Aaron Carter, and the Click Five.
