The Suzan
The Suzan are a pop-rock band from Tokyo, Japan. Formed in 2004 by sisters Rie (keyboards and vocals) and Saori (guitar and vocals). Soon they added school friends Nico (drums) and Ikue (bass) where their sound has been variously described as riot-grrl, pop and punk, and also incorporates elements of jazz, soul, surf and dance music. After releasing an EP “Suzan Kingdom” (2004) and then “Suzan Galaxy” (2007) on super cool Japanese indie label ROSE RECORDS, The Suzan toured throughout Europe creating an army of fans wherever they played.

Their irresistible charm captivated Bjorn Yttling of Peter, Bjorn and John – whom they convinced to produce their album with a MySpace message. The resulting album “Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat” (2010) found its way to tastemaker indie label Fool’s Gold, (Kid Sister, Kid Cudi and Duck Sauce) to release the album worldwide.

The first single, “Home” captured high praise for its unique blast of fun with it’s sweetly funky, hard-to-pin-down pop. This set the stage for the press to follow for the LP Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat. The Suzan have since gathered the reputation as one of the most unique groups out there. Even The Suzan’s cover versions of bands like Miike Snow and The Strokes have created viral buzz on Twitter with stars like Mark Ronson and Amanda Palmer raving about them. Even the NFL picked up the bands fun vibe by using The Suzan song “Come Come” in a NFL Verizon TV campaign for the 2011 NFL season. Their latest video for “Ha Ha Ha” was part of the DELL computer online “Create.Work.Inspire” campaign.

Since camping in New York in 2011, The Suzan have built a rabid fanbase from their exciting live show with tours with bands like Chromeo, Peter Bjorn and John, Titus Andronicus, Datarock, Zambri and playing the hottest club parties with local bands in all of New York and Brooklyn. in 2013 a Documentary film on The Suzan -“The First Step” by famed Mike Nogami showing the band’s self assured efforts into taking on taking on the world. Now as a trio of Rie, Saori and Nico the Suzan are recording new single and preparing an album produced again by Bjorn Yttling that along with touring will keep the band busy in 2015

Bird Call
"After showcasing at the 2012 SXSW Conference, Chiara Angelicola aka "Bird Call" is gearing up for the release of a new collection of music in the summer of 2012. Bird is currently in production with producer Bryan Senti (Mark Ronson, Rufus Wainwright) and, for a third time, Joel Hamilton (Tom Waits, Sparkle Horse, The Black Keys). Bird Call is also featured in the Google Music Ad, promoting the launch of the new Google Music cloud, which is geared towards the independent musician.

In the past year, Angelicola released two digital EPs. Other Creatures (released May 24th, 2011 FHC Records), is a digital EP of cover songs featuring covers of Beck, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, and Man Man, who's frontman Honus Honus personally extended his liking of Bird's version of "Doo Right". Upon its release, iTunes featured the record on it's Singer/Songwriter homepage as "New and Noteworthy"for 8 consecutive weeks. Prior to Other Creatures, Bird Call released The Animals Know EP in October 2010 (FHC Records), again produced by Joel Hamilton.

Bird Call's upcoming full length collection is yet another display of the artist at her most sincere, creative, and endearing. Angelicola will release a music video for her new song "Miracle Man" in summer 2012. With a firm belief in the power of dreams, Bird Call continues to glisten as an ethereal, emotionally honest, and intuitive artist in the music world."
