The Rooks

A transplant from the Wesleyan University music scene, The Rooks have spent the last three years and change making noise across New York City and the greater Northeast, gaining substantial recognition for their debut EP, Something You Can Take (May 2013), follow up single “Twister” (Jan 2014) and most recent releases “Secrets” and “Intermission (Wires)” (both premiered on Okayplayer).

Hard-hitting performances at Irving Plaza, Mercury Lounge, and Brooklyn Bowl, as well as highly successful residencies at Arlenes Grocery and Pianos NYC (second highest grossing residency in venue history) have earned them further acclaim, including Deli Magazine’s Artist of The Month award (Feb 2014) and recent nomination for the 14th Annual Independent Music Awards in the R&B/Soul category, finally providing their parents with a tangible means of bragging about their children.

The Rooks are currently prepping the release of their second EP, Wires, and booking shows just about anywhere you’ll have them. They would love for you to join the party, because they’re having an incredible time!

The Youngers

Hailing from southeastern Pennsylvania, The Youngers were founded in 1999 by Todd Notobartolo (vocals, guitar, lap steel, and mandolin) and Randy Krater (vocals, electric and upright bass). 2016’s Picture of You is the third full-length release by the band, following 2005’s Output and 2008’s critically-acclaimed Heritage.

Heritage was recorded at the Cash Cabin in Tennessee and produced by John Carter Cash, son of country music legends Johnny Cash and June Carter. The Heritage record, which cracked the top 30 on the Americana Chart and is now completely sold out, featured an all-star lineup of guest musicians including Laura Cash on fiddle, Ronnie McCoury of the Del McCoury Band on mandolin and the late pedal-steel legend Ralph Mooney.

In support of Heritage, The Youngers embarked on a national tour, sharing stages with the late Levon Helm at one of his famed “Midnight Rambles,” as well as opening for Marty Stuart, Lee Rocker, David Allen Coe and Wayne Hancock.

Their music has been featured on NPR, Sirius Radio, and Cowboy Jack Clement’s Radio Show. Heritage also received glowing reviews by Vintage Guitar Magazine and the Philadelphia Inquirer.
