Belleisle
Belleisle is the off-kilter indie pop brainchild of Brett Bakshis, who can never seem to settle on a lineup for his band. Strings one week, brass the next, sometimes there are two drummers, sometimes there are none. The music draws on influences as varied as Cat Stevens and Lou Reed, Apples in Stereo and Nick Cave, Burt Bacharach and whatever the opposite of Burt Bacharach is. Basically, Belleisle plays a particularly ponderous pop repertoire. Curious? Come inside...
DAJA
DAJA
Musician Daniela Sloan (a.k.a DAJA) has been songwriting and singing since age 11. Backed by her guitar and upright bassist Scott Bakshis, she sings with the soulful classic sound of Nina Simone blended with the fresh approach and poetry of Jill Scott. Her original songs are "acoustic soul" and her sound lingers between hip-hop, blues, and Latin thanks to her Colombian roots. Daniela has been featured on NPR, recorded and performed internationally with artists Fink and WAEK and she is set to release a single under her new moniker DAJA in the fall of 2018.
