Bishop's Collar, Everyman, Paul Anthony, Jonathan Kroppmann Bishop's Collar, Everyman, Paul Anthony, Jonathan Kroppmann Spike Hill 01/28/2013 07:00 PM EST Bishop's Collar After an exodus from the industrial wastelands of Detroit, beaten through the mud and dragged through 99 weeks of unemployment, Bishops Collar has taken hold of working class rock in Brooklyn. Each Bishops Collar show entices the crowd to get in touch with the hard times this generation faces, all the while coloring the rhythms with guitar tones reminiscent of the Rolling Stones and U2. Having extensively played the midwest with bands such as Kings X and Hello Goodbye Bishops Collar moved to Brooklyn, NY in 2009. Influenced by the story telling and energy of Bruce Springsteen, while maintaining the unique character only seen in men grown in Michigan and the rustbelt, facing down hard times, Bishops Collar has been a staple at Brooklyn mainstay Spike Hill as well as Manhattan's Rockwood Music Hall over the past year. Everyman EVERYMAN is a group of musicians who intend to take the popular music genre in a new direction. Their sound incorporates elements of rock, jazz, blues, funk, soul, reggae and hip hop. John, Dylan and Allen have been together as EVERYMAN for over six years. All three of these guys were child prodigies who have matured into marvelous musicians and sophisticated songwriters. Although they have been separated for periods of time due to individual musical and scholastic obligations, they have remained dedicated to each other and to their never ending quest to achieve a higher state of musical nirvana in their next live performance. EVERYMAN has performed regularly at popular local venues and major music festivals in the Baltimore area. They have recently relocated to Manhattan and have been appearing in various clubs in and around New York City. The collection of songs that appear on their debut album ‘Day by Day’ represents their take on Modern Rock. Paul Anthony Paul Anthony is a seasoned singer/songwriter whose music spans a wide array of styles from swing to rock and somewhere in between. His performances are energetic and confident as he bares all with lyrics that beckon the listener reassuringly to come into the songs and see what they may find. In the spring of 2009, he decided to concentrate his musical efforts solely on songwriting and quickly hit up on the NYC acoustic scene to hone his skills. By years end, he had earned himself a place on the scene and is about to release his first solo effort, After Dark.
