When this week’s featured artist Gangstagrass hit the road in March, they will record every gig and capture the dynamic they have on stage so everyone can get a taste.
There might be millions of musicians out there who write beats for Hip-Hop artists. But, at least as far as I know, there is only one Country Rap band, the Gangstagrass, the bluegrass-hip-hop project of Brooklyn based producer Rench.
Our already 18th Artist of the Week, Noam Hassenfeld, is a composer, guitarist, and drummer currently based in Brooklyn.
Our newest Artist of the Week is Will Connolly, an actor, writer and musician originally from Montclair, New Jersey, now living in Brooklyn.
Our newest Artist of the Week Julia Anrather is an actress, musician, and producer born in NYC into a bilingual household. On screen she most recently played a vegan caterer in The Pioneers, a comedic web series which she produced and which has been nominated for 3 IndieSeries awards, is an official selection of the Seattle Webfest, the Brooklyn Web Fest, the Cordoba International Film Festival, and has been featured on the homepage of Funny or Die. Other favorite roles include Anne in Ming Peiffer and Kat Yen’s Usual Girls, and an Angel in the Drama Desk Award winning show The Mysteries directed by Ed Iskandar at The Flea Theater.
No. 4 in our Artist of the Week series is Phildaelphia born Nic Hanson, now located in Brooklyn. Looking at the outcome under his own name, you would think he’s not that productive. But he does a lot of collaborations, as well as in his hometown as in New York and Los Angeles.
