Northampton Comes to Helsinki
Club Helsinki welcomes three of the top up and coming bands from the Northampton area.
These three bands have played a ton of shows together including a killer "Northampton Comes to Austin" showcase at this years SXSW music festival in Austin TX.
Jamie Kent is a 26-year-old singer-songwriter with big dreams and an ever-expanding fan base. Drawing on influences from modern artists like Jack Johnson and Jamie Cullum, as well as paying tribute to classic greats Johnny Cash and Frank Sinatra, Kent’s perfectly mellifluous tunes are roll-the-windows-down, soak-up-some-sun kind of good. Jamie is currently touring in support of his new record "Navigation". In the past year they have toured extensively across the US, playing over 200 shows throughout 40 states. Additionally, they have received national radio play on over 120 stations, and recently signed licensing agreements with MTV, VH1, Bravo, and The Discovery Network!
Lux Deluxe is, at its core, a family band that conjures echoes of The Band, Springsteen and Wilco. Formed in by musical phenom brothers Jacob & Caleb Rosazza on bass and guitar, cousin Gabe Bernini-keyboards, Ned King on lead vocals, who at 21 possesses the voice and swagger of a seasoned front man twice his age. Along with drummer, Jake Edwards the band played its first gigs in 2010 and killed from the word go. The band released their debut record " Hollow Ground" last summer and recently a single of the their song " Never Coming Back " featuring legendary harp player , Magic Dick from the J.Geils Band.
The Sun Parade grew out of the creative realm spawned by Elliot Smith and Deer Tick. Chris Marlon Jennings and Jefferson Lewis share front man duties with intricate guitar work accentuated by harmonies that could only be produced by longtime friends blessed with the vocal range of Jeff Buckley and textures of The Zombies.
The young, raw talent found in twenty-year old Chris’s writing is described as "emotions that are played out in music". These emotions are especially evident in the hit single "Need You By My Side", which has risen to the top of regional radio charts in New England and has been declared the "Top Song of 2011" by WRSI 93.9 and 101.5, ahead of notable national acts (Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, Beirut-amongst many others).
The Sun Parade has just released their first full length record "Yossis" and is on tour to support the release.
