il abanico

il abanico is a native Colombian duo, formed in 2010 by Juliana Ronderos (vocals) and Nicolás Losada (guitar). With extremely different tastes in music and similar personalities, they started writing songs and experimenting with new sounds and compositions.

The band includes members from places as diverse as Peru, Japan, and Argentina. In December 2010 they recorded their EP, Crossing Colors, at Studio G in Brooklyn. They now perform around the Boston area and have played in venues such as the Paradise and the House of Blues. Rapidly growing on a greater audience, il abanico brings a fresh proposal of music influenced by alternative, experimental, and pop music. Their music has been described as "a weaving tapestry of textures and sounds" by the Hurdy Gurdy

Cameron Galpin

Born in Colorado, Cameron Galpin spent much of his early childhood traveling around the world with his family. With two British Beatles fans for parents, it isn't surprising that he naturally fell in love with the art of the song. Trapped on various trains planes and automobiles, he had plenty of time to listen. He received his first guitar at 16 and began taking weekly lessons. By 18, he had produced his first full-length album of original material. At 19 he was awarded a scholarship to Berklee College of Music.

Upon arriving at Berklee, Galpin found himself drawn into a network of talented musicians who loved nothing more than sharing their ideas and supporting each other's musical visions. Carving out a style reflecting influences from John Mayer, D'Angelo, and the Band, he set out to record his first EP of more of his original music. By 2010, his 10-piece band finished the EP, complete with a five-piece horn section. Over the past seven semesters, he spent his time studying and playing with great instrumentalists such as Jamie Haddad, Julian Lage, and David Grisman, saturating his style with a mix of jazz, bluegrass, funk, and soul. He currently lives and performs in Boston while completing his degree at Berklee.

Foxtrot

This Boston rock band is just entering its sophomore year on the scene and already making a splash with a live DVD and new record. Think equal parts Radiohead, Incubus, and Mute Math, and you're halfway there. These are songs about overcoming and succumbing to boundaries; songs that will make you hum and say "hmm."

And if you've been club hopping in the New England area anytime in the past year, you know the second part of the Foxtrot story: they're a dangerously entertaining live band that has a penchant for startling live effects and a unforgettable light show. The members have previously played the Warped Tour, Carnegie Hall, CBGBs, Port City Music Hall, Berklee Performance Center, and the Ruins at the Colosseum.

Thinkin' Big

Current Berklee College of Music student Jonah Francese started Thinkin' Big for the purpose of bringing jazz writers and arrangers together. The group solely plays student charts. It is place where the students can, without fear, bring in their work and get it played by a band that will only give support. 

The group meets once a week and gets new charts just as often. This spring was the first full semester the band was together and it has already performed twice: at the Turtle Lane Playhouse and at the Lily Pad. The group looks forward to many more opportunities and charts to come.
