Mike Fuller & the Best Around

Songwriter and guitarist Mike Fuller spent much of the pandemic like many of us– floating in existential dread, contemplating life and his future. Fuller managed to bust through his own self-constructed roadblocks when he released his debut, The Human Condition EP, in September 2020, but there remained more from life to contemplate and push the metaphorical rock up the hill once again.

And so we have Fuller’s follow-up pandemic-inspired project, The Missed Connection EP. After a few months of recording in Brooklyn, NY in early 2021, Fuller was joined by Jordan Rose on drums (Theo Katzman, Cory Wong, Caleb Hawley) and Andy Hess on bass (The Black Crowes, Gov’t Mule) to complete his newest project.

The trio of songs were written over the course of a decade - beginning in early Winter 2010, then the Fall 2013 and to early Winter 2020. They were finally recorded, together, in late Winter 2021.

Collectively, these songs showcase a coming-of-age journey through distance and time. Detailing romantic entanglements and trials and tribulations, Fuller’s experiences led to where he is now—happily engaged.

Daisy Anabelle

Born in LA and now living in Brooklyn, Daisy started writing songs at the age of 13. Her introspective pop-infused melodic songs have always been intended both for personal expression and to connect with her listeners.

Her debut EP, 'My Own Person' released in 2015, which was in true singer-songwriter fashion, a display of coming of age experiences and the simmering doubt that comes with being thrust into an adulthood of uncertainty. Performing at local NYC intimate music venues, she joined a supportive Greenwich Village music community. Often compared to Laura Nyro, Lady Gaga, and Bette Midler, her alto range has a secret power to show strength and vulnerability simultaneously.

Five years ago, new inspiration came after experiencing the positive effects of meditation. She found an oasis in upstate New York and went on a silent retreat alone, bringing only a device to capture different sounds in nature. There, she caught the frogs' ribbit, birds chirping, water running, crickets talking and more. They can all be heard on her follow up EP, titled ‘RETREAT'.

Daisy is also graduate of NYC's MNDFL Meditation Teacher Training, a 300 hour program and certified to lead guided meditations as an instructor. Her exploration into the tools of how meditation can facilitate personal growth and creativity are very much intertwined. She believes that music has incredible power to heal and is honored to spread it's gifts.

VISION FLIGHT

Vision Flight is the solo project of Brooklyn-based musician Jared Elder. A lifelong passion for music began at age five with violin lessons, followed by piano in middle school, punk bands in high school, and a classical guitar performance degree. After college, Jared began producing electronic music as Vision Flight, combining synthesizers and drum machines with acoustic instruments. Years of performing in orchestras, choirs, bands, and chamber groups can be heard in the layers and interplay of synths and guitars, and in the flow from one passage to the next. The goal is always to inspire the listener, evoke vivid imagery, and convey deep emotions.
