Darius Christian at Rockwood Music Hall

You’ve heard him with Solange, Adele, Rihanna, DNCE, FIFTH HARMONY, Dionne Warwick, Bastille, Ricky Martin, Macy Gray, and Andy Grammar, and more! You’ve watched him on America’s Got Talent. You’ve seen him in campaigns for Tommy Hilfiger and Cadillac.

The logical next step for you, the fans, is to support this solo endeavor.

Baltimore raised and Brooklyn based, Darius Christian is a high-energy force of nature. A powerful trombonist/vocalist and song- writer with an upsettingly good band of NYC thoroughbreds, his music is something you need, and you need it now. One could place him on the list of “Renaissance Men” due to his exploits in modeling, film, composition, and media, but the real renaissance can be found in his music.

You will find, when you go, a sold out crowd of obsessed music-goers that wouldn’t dare be anywhere else. Tight, intricately manicured, jazz-meets-everything sounds are equal parts mind-bending and soul enlivening. What you’re going to find is a raw, emotion-filled aesthetic that is there to remind you that we’re all the luckiest people to be alive.

Youth in a Roman Field at Rockwood Music Hall

Youth in a Roman Field wants to help you break the rules. The bastardized string quartet-meets folk band-meets jazz combo from singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Claire Wellin incorporates sounds of "Appalachia, cayenne pepper, & ghosts." The band includes collaborators Tiffany Topol, Scott Stangland, Cassidy Stirtz, Katrina Lenk, and Jamie Mohamdein. Their debut album, 'Of Grit and Grace,' was released in May of 2012, and the EP 'Suits for Children' was released in October 2014. Originally out of Chicago, they are currently making a home in New York City and recently recorded their second full-length album with legendary producer Stewart Lerman, set to be released in 2017.

"Listening to Youth in a Roman Field, it's not hard to imagine the band in a shady glade singing its timeless, melancholy folk — the accordion makes the fantasy list toward the french countryside. The songs are clear, simple, a little sad and swept with romance. Frontwoman and bandleader Claire Wellin has a clarion voice that goes from naive to soulful, on songs that touch on belle epoque cabaret music and early American folk music." -Jessica Hopper, Chicago Tribune

The Rooks Live at Rockwood Music Hall

Hard-hitting performances at Irving Plaza, Mercury Lounge and Brooklyn Bowl, as well as highly successful residencies at Arlene's Grocery and Pianos NYC (second highest-grossing in venue history) have earned them further acclaim, including Deli Magazine's Artist of the Month award (2014), and winners of the 14th Annual Independent Music Awards in the R&B/Soul category.

Thanks to their generous, family, friend and fans, The Rooks are currently in the studio working on their first, full length album and preparing for their summer tour-- they would love for you to join the party!

Ritual Talk Live at Rockwood Music Hall

One of the first questions Ritual Talk gets is usually one of the hardest questions to answer: what do you sound like? In a world that favors boxes and binaries, they are dubbed “psychedelic indie rock”. And there are certainly moments in the music that fit that bill to a tee, capturing both the headiness and the fervor of the genre. However, like a cold ice cream cone on a warm day, those moments don’t last forever. People walk away hearing influences from Grizzly Bear to Marvin Gaye to CSN&Y to Dirty Projectors, but ultimately, the Brooklyn outfit's lush instrumentation and exploratory vocal arrangements tinge each song with an unmistakable color, on and off the stage.

Sarah Jaffe at Rockwood Music Hall

For 28-­‐year-­‐old singer-­‐songwriter Sarah Jaffe, Don’t Disconnect is both a mission statement and a call to arms -­‐-­‐ an album about getting to know yourself in a hyper-­‐ connected world that makes it nearly impossible to do just that. The leadoff track from the Texas-­‐born musician’s third LP sets the tone: “Middle of the line/ Middle of the road,” Jaffe sings over mid-­‐tempo beats on “Ride It Out,” “Nowhere to hide on this logical plateau/ Gunna have to ride it out.” “Riding it out” -­‐-­‐ that is, facing your reality and learning how to cope with it, is a powerful opening credo for an album titled Don’t Disconnect, which emphasizes the power of staying truly “connected” without unplugging from the world around you.
