Billy Dodge Moody

Since playing along to Bob Dylan, The Beatles, and Nirvana songbooks on guitar at age 11, Billy Dodge Moody has developed a love, passion, and admiration for raw, well-crafted, and emotional songwriting. Born and raised outside Boston, Massachusetts, Billy has made an impact on the Boston music scene with his blend of folk, blues, soul, reggae, and alternative rock accompanied by emotional, soulful, personal, and sometimes sociopolitical lyrics manifested by a mix between personal and peer experiences of loss, longing, and frustration. Throughout his six year career as a singer-songwriter (after years of band hopping), Moody had been recording demos in a number of different New England recording studios until finally making his full studio album debut in 2014,"Dawn Breaks Over Mystic", an 11-song compilation of folk, blues, and reggae storytelling recorded at Plaid Dog Studios in Boston. Moody currently resides in Boston, MA and continues to play shows in the Northeast region regularly.

Federico & The Breeze

Federico and the Breeze performs original material along with songs by Mark Knopfler, Eric Clapton, John Mellencamp, John Hiatt, J J Cale, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Steve Winwood, Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, & Tom Petty. 

I’m a tunesmith. I build songs with voice and acoustic guitar. The genre might be folk/rhythm and blues/Americana/roots with a groove. There’s more and more finger-style/fingerpicking and plucking. I like the traditional stuff and take inspiration from pre-existing melodies, forms, themes and wording. The songs are as you would expect from this genre: social justice, personal, political, humorous, topical (of the moment). I write about the normal stuff: love, loss, hope, despair, characters with stories to tell, and our society and the times we live in. My voice might be described as gravely (like gravel, not like a grave), though it tries not to sacrifice melody. I take on the persona of the characters I write. There’s some acting involved. I try to make it authentic. Sometimes it’s me talking, sometimes it’s someone else.

Miele

Miele

Miele is a Boston-based alternative rock band with a diverse drawing board of art rock, psychedelia, soul, grunge, metal, and funk influences. Miele straddles the line between alt rock and art rock, with dark, soulful female vocals from singer Melissa Nilles oft compared to Grace Slick or Sophie Hunger, and startling switches between mystical melodies and grungy/funky/tear-your-face off rock. 

The band was forged in Cambridge in 2014, emerging out of mutual interests and employment in therapy and music. The name "Miele", meaning "honey" in Italian, was chosen as a playful nod to singer Nilles' and guitarist Spilsbury's on-stage honey drinking antics, as well as a representation of the often mellifluous nature of Miele's music. The words of Miele reflect on the human condition; they celebrate the emotions, spirit, and wisdom that lives and breathes in all of us, as well as the misunderstood rage, the desire, and the chaos that erupts out of us when we cannot give it a voice.
