Based right here on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, wife-and-husband duo True Outcomes are comprised of singer/actor Christina Germaine and singer/songwriter/guitarist Adam Howard Schneider. Their style can best be described as indie-folk-power pop with a bit of humor, a sprinkle of sarcasm, and a lot of melody. After receiving a warm response to their rapidly expanding repertoire at open mics, on the city streets, and here at Rockwood Music Hall for their official debut this past November, they are excited to be returning to Rockwood once again while their first EP is being mixed and mastered.
Virginia Marcs delivers siren vocals and raw storytelling dressed in art-pop. Compared to Tori Amos, Daughter and Jeff Buckley, she first caught the ears of Idlewild Magazine in 2016. She released her first record, Climbing The Wall, in 2017. Her subsequent videos for “Wild” and “I Need You,” were collaborative works with director and MTV VMA-winning editor, Alexander Hammer. There are four further videos in the works for 2022 culminating in the release of her next EP, Reckoning. You may listen to Virginia on most streaming services or check out Amy Schumer’s Expecting Amy to hear her familiar voice in “You Were Right” which plays in episode 1 on HBO Max.
Singer-songwriter Tom Ashton founded the post-punk/power-pop outfit Early Edison. Their dynamic live show soon found them opening for bands like the Gin Blossoms, Berlin, Missing Persons, The Alarm and championed on SiriusXM by Pat Dinizio (The Smithereens). Their song “Demographically Pleasing” was named Pop Song of the Year by Newsday and was featured on their debut album co-produced by Tony Maimone (Pere Ubu, Bob Mould) and mixed by Joel Hamilton (Highly Suspect, Blakroc). Their subsequent album “Better Late Than Never” was co-produced by Ashton and bassist Tom Wendling and featured production contributions by Grammy-winning producer Patrick Dillett (David Byrne, They Might Be Giants). Several of their songs have been featured in TV/films including “Burn The Boats” (My Boss’s Daughter), “New Distraction” (A View From The Top) and “Lies Like You” (Tru Calling).
“A clever mix of Bob Mould’s alienated sonics and Ray Davies’s catchy hooks… mixes the alternative toughness of the late-1980's Minneapolis music scene and the lyrical and infectious melodicism of succeeding British invasion bands.”
– New York Times
“Early Edison evokes the halcyon days of British cutting-edge rock, incorporating Clash and Kinks inspirations.”
