Maelyn is a new musical project by vocalist and songwriter Maddy Jarmon and guitarist/producer Daniel Kim. Conceived May 2016 in Brooklyn, NY, Maelyn’s sound is an intricate, seamless blend of singer/songwriter rock and thick, heavy electronic tones. Maelyn’s music washes over you; it’s both danceable and meditative, upbeat and musing. Jarmon’s vocal prowess is tremendous; her gorgeous, pure tone is matched by her impressive power and range, which is skillfully controlled and showcases a uniquely haunting tone. Jarmon’s unforgettable vocals are supported by Kim’s lush, ambient melodies and artfully crafted, provocative back beats.
Maelyn’s first single, “Last Call,” begs repeated listening with its singable hook and groove. The duo’s second single, “Ayo,” dropped June 2017 and is equally catchy, featuring an addictive beat and imaginatively executed layered canon vocals. Maelyn is currently crafting their debut full-length album. “Last Call” and “Ayo” can be found on Spotify and via http://www.maelynmusic.com

LUECK has been dubbed an ‘ambient folk rock soulstress.’
LUECK is led by world traveler & award-winning filmmaker Katy Lueck. With jamming basslines and rhythmic punk guitar, evocative lyrics and knockout solos, their debut double single builds on a foundation of folk sentimentality with the drive of 90s grunge and kickback vibe of 70s rock.
LUECK’s debut double single, “Robert / Samaritas” was released October 13, 2017 and is streaming everywhere. In celebration of the double single, LEUCK performed a release show to a packed house October 10th at Rockwood Music Hall.
