Gold Child is the Brooklyn-based project of songwriter Emily Fehler, whose career in music fomented at the age of three when she joined her sister in a duet for a talent show. By the age of thirteen she was writing and performing her own work, setting the foundation for her studies at Berklee College of Music. Now she is joined by her band, comprised of Jake Beal on drums, David Von Bader slide guitar, and Jason Weiss on bass.

A fifth-generation Floridian, Mills sings alternately of the swamp and the suburbs. She grew up ten minutes from the beach with jazz musician parents and a professional studio in the garage. By sixteen, Mills was playing her quirky originals on acoustic guitar at DIY punk shows. Upon graduating high school, she had recorded and self-released an LP-CD (lady lady, friends and family—2007) and an EP-CD, (Fruit n’ Feet—2008).

Mills went to college in Gainesville, FL, and began playing with a band. Though her roots are as tangled as the mangroves’, her supple voice and evocative lyrics cut through to create a driving folk-pop hybrid. Her new album, Stonefruit is the coalescence of three years of songwriting, and Mills’ first full-length, full-band release. She currently lives and performs in Brooklyn, NY.

With ringing guitars, warm harmonies basking in the sunny splendor of major keys, and an unabashed romancing of the ups and downs of teenage love and angst… here is Blaire Alise & The Bombshells! For a wholesome good time, a cynicism free good time, the kinda lose yourself to the pure power of pop good time where before the song is over, you already know the chorus, and by the time the bridge ends, you’re singing it… here is Blaire Alise & The Bombshells! At only 17 years old, Blaire is known for her high energy, engaging performances, and a style described as an action combo of 60’s pop and garage punk. Think Little Miss Dynamite. Think Ronettes with an MC5 edge. Blaire’s songs are full of catchy hooks, upbeat lyrics and rich background vocals reminiscent of that timeless girl group sound but delivered by a sucker punch of garage that reminds you that this kid’s from Detroit, circa now! Blaire honed her skills at Boston’s Berklee College of Music where she was selected as a winner of the “Berklee College of Music Singer/Songwriter Competition”. She also received a full tuition scholarship to return to Berklee in summer of 2013 where she was again selected as a winner of the Singer/Songwriter Competition for her song “I Got Something,” featured on Blaire’s first full-length album, “For My Darlin’,” produced by Jim Diamond and released in May 2014.
