Richard Barone is an acclaimed recording artist, performer, producer, and author. He pioneered the indie rock scene in Hoboken, NJ as frontman for The Bongos and then helped launch the chamber pop movement with his solo debut “cool blue halo”. Barone has produced countless studio recordings and worked with artists in every musical genre.

Grammy™ nominee Tracy Bonham is celebrating yet another banner year that has further underlined exactly what makes her a stand-out serious artist with a unique set of talents. As PopMatters aptly describes, “Bonham, from the beginning and increasingly over time, is a riveting, complicated maker of pop music.” Tracy Bonham has joined the ECR Music Group roster of recording artists, and is currently on tour in the United States throughout 2018-2019. Her artist-in-residence concert series at New York City’s Rockwood Music Hall debuts October 26th 2018 and runs through April 18th, 2019.

Originally from Northeast Florida, Walter Parks toured and recorded with Woodstock legend Richie Havens for 10 years. Inspired by Smithsonian Institute recordings of Okefinokee Swamp culture Walter reimagines spirituals, hymns, hollers and work songs with a contemporary feel that blends electronic, acoustic and operatic treatments. Previous original bands include The Nudes and Swamp Cabbage. 

Meet AMB! Their driving and energizing sound, which combines a gutsy rock attitude with great pop sensibility and a hint of the blues, is reminiscent of some of rock’s greatest female icons. The band has put on amazing performances all over the USA alongside some music legends: David Lee Roth, Steve Miller Band, Blues Traveler, The Smithereens, Chris Whitley and others. The band’s latest release is distributed through Fontana Universal Records.


Violet is Meredith Minogue (singer/songwriter/rhythm guitarist) and Jim Barry (songwriter/lead-guitarist/multi- instrumentalist). Their sound draws from rock and roll, folk-rock, new wave, country-blues and dream pop. It’s a bit like Buffalo Springfield, Tim Buckley and Gary Numan having a drink with the Pretenders while staring at a Marc Chagall painting
