Satellite Hearts
Satellite Hearts
Satellite Hearts is pure rock 'n' roll, wild and dangerous, yet full of awe and childlike wonder. It's like The Clash infused with unpolished 80's brat punk that trekked through the 60's while flirting with bell-bottomed psychedelics. At the end of the cosmic mind trip Satellite Hearts is truly the distinctive sound of Justin Pellecchia (guitar, vocals, and harmonica), Lucas Rinz (bass, vocals) and Keaton Thandi (drums, percussion, and vocals). Three beings who welcome you graciously into their world.
The Sweet Things
The Sweet Things’ story is a rock n’ roll fairytale. Lorne drank with Sam and briefly discussed playing together, though neither really followed up on that. Dave and Lorne drank and discussed playing together, though neither really followed up on that. Sam and Dave drank together, though neither really remember meeting. Darren and Sam met briefly at Lorne’s birthday, though, you guessed it, neither really remember meeting. Lorne gigged with Darren. Dave gigged with Lorne. Sam toured with Dave. In February 2015, all four got together in a rehearsal room twice and quickly booked studio time. In March 2015, The Sweet Things somehow managed to remember and record the first two songs they worked on.

Outside The Sweet Things, Dave fronts the Sharp Lads, Sam has played in Stiletto, The Kee Kartel, and The Bowery Boys, Lorne has played with The Dead Tricks, L.E.S. Stitches, and The Dimestore Haloes, and Darren is a veteran NYC drummer who previously played with Mazard and Tongue.
The Liza Colby Sound
Part shaman, part seductress, Liza Colby was born to earn the Queen Of Rock N’ Roll mantle. Her music is for sinful Saturday nights, and redemptive Sunday mornings. It’s heartbreak music; it’s music of sexual liberation; it’s music for when it matters most. It’s The Liza Colby Sound. It’s the music we need in these times.

Imagine Led Zeppelin at Madison Square Garden meets James Brown at the Apollo. Picture Tina Turner prowling the stage like Iggy Pop with vocals that conjure Aretha Franklin and Humble Pie’s Steve Marriott. Hyperbolic? Nah, come to a show, and look out for The Liza Colby Sound’s upcoming EP, Let It Happen, to be preceded by the swaggering single “My World.”

“When I sing, I want it to be badass, feminine, empowering, and ooze sexuality,” the New York City-based artist says. “I want to kick mother#$&ers in the face with rock n’ roll.”

The Liza Colby Sound is known for an aesthetic that harnesses the grit of garage rock, the anthemic power of classic arena rock, the sweat-soaked salvation of a soul revue, and the sneering defiance of punk rock. Liza’s vocals are boldly vulnerable, shaking the rafters and rattling your soul. LCS sound has toured throughout the East Coast, performing in venues such as Webster Hall, Bowery Electric, PNC Bank Arts Center, The Wellmont Theater, and Jones Beach. LCS has also performed to a packed house at the Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles. To date, the rock n’ roll quartet has issued two EPs, previous releases include the well-received High Yellow (2011) and Live(2013).

The Liza Colby Sound includes a trio of musicians who have played for almost two decades. These formidable instrumentalists boast impressive resumes that include working with Ozzy Osbourne, Rick Derringer, Edgar Winter, Raging Slab, Suzanne Vega, Garland Jeffreys, Lenny Kaye, Jim Carroll Band, the Del Fuegos (featuring Dan Zanes), The Paley Brothers, Denis Leary, and Joey Ramone, among other well-known names. These all-stars are also known for scoring music for film and TV, most recently they’ve contributed to the Denis Leary show Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.

The core of The Liza Colby Sound is Adam Roth guitar, Alec Morton bass, and C.P. Roth drums. December 2015, Adam passed away after a brave battle with cancer. LCS has remerged with fiery psychedelic guitarist Tom McCaffrey (Gloria Gaynor and Liberty DeVitto) as a full-fledged member.

Outside of The Liza Colby Sound, Liza has lent silk and sandpaper vocal stylings to Enrique Iglesias, Denis Leary John Legend, The Gold Setting, Johnny Burgos, The Sweet Things, Chris Rock's movie Top 5 (which featured her song “It Ain’t Easy”), Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll (she’s the singing voice of Elaine Hendrix). In addition, Liza’s voice has appeared on ESPN, VH1, NASCAR, and Sesame Street.

Let It Happen channels the power of LCS live. The six-song EP crackles with fiery musicality, muscular grooves, and moments of reflective soul-ballad beauty. The leadoff single, “My World,” explodes open with an iconic, instantly recognizable guitar figure. This future smash is a gritty and seductive pop-rock number that explores the expanse of female sexuality from dominant to submissive with relentless moxie. On the track, guitarist Adam Roth turns in solos that evoke honey dripping down on naked bodies. The simmering soul waltz “I Love You” conjures the longing of being desperately in love with someone who is going to leave. Other standouts include the cocksure “Cryin’,” and the Curtis Mayfield-flavored “Right On Time” which wafts forth a sentiment of wonder and love for wary souls.

The EP is a tribute to the tenacity of The Liza Colby Sound, and it also represents a brave new future. “The title ‘Let It Happen’ means we can get through anything,” Liza says with graceful defiance. “We will Mach Schau.”

The Up! Up! Ups!
We're just four kids with a love of the finer things in life- power pop, rock and roll, and animals dressed like people. We mostly stick to the first two.
