Kelly Finnigan

After touring the world for over a decade with Monophoics, 37-year-old, Bay Area-based singer, songwriter, engineer, and producer, Kelly Finnigan will release his first solo album, The Tales People Tell on Colemine Records, in the first quater of 2019. With Kelly guiding these songs from their conception all the way to the record pressing plant, the new release provides the singular voice missing from soul music.

“I’m not looking to reinvent the wheel. I just want to remind people why the wheel was such a good invention in the first place,” says Finnigan. He might be invoking a golden era of soul music, but Finnigan captures a timelessness on this album that transcends the “retro” label so often cast on music with a gritty aesthetic.

Empire Strikes BrassEmpire Strikes Brass (ESB) is a high energy Brass-Funk-Rock band hailing from the city of Asheville, North Carolina. Formed on the streets of their hometown, ESB is rooted in the New Orleans Brass Band tradition of second-line parades and deep moving grooves reminiscent of old school funk. Featuring rich group and strong lead vocals including Grammy Award winner Debrissa McKinney (Secret Agent 23 Skidoo), ESB not only takes its audiences on a ride to the dark side and back instrumentally, they also use the force of soaring melody and lush harmony to transport the listeners to another dimension. The diversity of the music within their sets keep audiences guessing what is next to come. The band is known to regularly parade off stage into the audience leading the crowd in a raucous procession around the venue before, during or after their set.
