Caroline Smith

With soaring vocals and catchy melodies Caroline Smith is settling into a sound that merges ’90s R&B and neo-soul with her indie rock and folk roots. As Smith's music takes a step from girl to woman, her new album, Half About Being a Woman, explores self-acceptance and growing into oneself.

Described as having “that voice” by the Boston Weekly Dig newspaper, pop/soul artist Tavonna Miller's vocal ability spans styles including soul, rock, gospel, and opera. Coming from a family of musicians, she learned early on to discover and explore the world of music and craft her own unique sound. Her influences include legends as Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, John Legend, and John Mayer. Now Brooklyn-based, the Berklee College of Music graduate performs throughout Massachusetts, New York,  and Philadelphia, either self-accompanied on piano or backed by some of the best local female musicians.

Tales of Olde

Tales of Olde released its first single, “This Place,” in October and is currently working on a debut EP to release in 2014. This Boston-based indie folk/rock band was founded on the notion that our shared stories are what bind us to each other and to the world around us. At the center of the band’s songs is an insistence that, even in the midst of heartbreak and sorrow, a great, ancient hope is alive and well among us, drawing us together to sing, celebrate, and love.

Tuesday / February 18, 2014 / 8:00 p.m.
Red Room at Cafe 939
939 Boylston Street
Boston
MA
02115

From the state that gave us the Pixies and Sonic Youth comes another alternative rock gem, Art Decade. An experimental hard rock band with progressive and classical influences, Art Decade has an expressive, distinct musical style. Drawing inspiration from the likes of the Mars Volta, Muse, and Radiohead, Art Decade is rising fast in the vibrant Boston music scene. 

Watch Art Decade's music video for "Numberless Dreams" here:

AERS collaborators Tasha and Zack explore alternative/ambient/electronic music with the goal of straddling genres while continuing to respect the sound of American folk music. The result is a warm sound that is hypnotic and cathartic, which pairs nicely with the duo’s poetic lyrics that provoke the listener to ask questions.

Watch AERS' music video for "With a Light" here:

The members of These Wild Plains were raised on The Band and Neil Young. The band was named one of Esquire’s “15 Bands To Watch” in 2014.

Meklit

Meklit Hadero, known simply as Meklit, erupted to national notice with the 2010 release of On a Day Like This… on Porto Franco Records. Hailed by Filter magazine for “[combining] New York jazz with West Coast folk and African flourishes, all bound together by Hadero’s beguiling voice,” her full-length debut garnered praise from NPR and National Geographic, among others. The album announced the arrival, as the San Francisco Chronicle put it, of “an artistic giant in the early stages.”

Meklit will release her second album, We Are Alive, in March.

Watch a music video for Meklit's "Soleil Soleil" here:
