Peter Wise is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and producer based out of Brooklyn, New York. His sound marries introspective lyricism with bluesy guitar lines, laid back rhythms, catchy hooks, and soulful vocals. Wise has had the pleasure of collaborating with a wide range of artists, from The Eagles and Lisa Fischer to Liza Anne and Joey Dosik (Vulfpeck). After touring all over the country in 2019, Wise spent 2020 self- producing a six song EP, “Too Blind To Hear”. The lead singles “Fruits” and “Towering Over Me” immediately garnered traction on Spotify in hundreds of playlists, and close to a hundred thousand streams. American Songwriter remarks, “Songbirds chirp and the backing percussion throbs, immediately intensifying the emotional rush and spilling out into the room. In decorating his lyrics with such explosive dynamics, he conjures up a full-bodied listening experience.”. From Tonemill Blog: “Wise has delivered a powerful and relatable song with an emotional depth that captivates listeners. He has achieved a great feat as a songwriter: writing a tune that evokes both sympathy and empathy from his audience.” Wise has been working on more pop driven material for 2021, prepping releases for the spring and summer with subsequent tour dates in the works. The first single, “Window Dressing”, came out in April to international acclaim, with publications like Rolling Stone India, Metal Magazine, and Atwood Magazine raving about the song and corresponding music video. His follow up single, “Neutral”, will be out on June 24th. Stay tuned!
America Jayne (Erica) was raised in a small town in Connecticut, with more cows per square mile than people. To say there was little to do was an understatement. So, at age ten she started taking guitar lessons.
Crawling to get out of the small town she had known her whole life, Erica decided she would take a big leap. She packed her bags and moved into her first New York City apartment in January of 2018. She got hired as a server at the famous music venue, Rockwood Music Hall, in the Lower East Side. This is where everything changed. She was surrounded by live music every night and fell in love with the fast-paced, local-music driven scene the venue had cultivated.
Her coworkers were a mix of musicians, actors, and creatives who wanted to have their voices heard as much as she did. Through the venue and nightly drinks at an after-hours bar next door, she garnered a group of friends who wanted to help her make music. And thus, America Jayne was born.
She now plays with an incredible band that she will not shut up about. They can be caught playing New York venues such as Mercury Lounge, Elsewhere, The Bowery Electric, etc. The band hits the road in November passing through Philadelphia, Providence, DC, and Amityville.
America Jayne is a Brooklyn based Alternative Indie-Rock musician. Her debut EP will be released in early 2022.
