New Jersey’s soul and blues singer LAURA CHEADLE is caught between a love affair with Philadelphia and New York City. This is no coincidence as Laura and her all family band have proven themselves to be smash hits in these cities with many accomplishments under their belt.
Laura Cheadle’s smoky blues and soul voice has won her several awards including the most recent “Best Indie Jazz/Blues Band” at WXPN sponsored Tri- State Indie Music Awards and “Best Blues Band” at Ventnor Music Showdown based out of Atlantic City, NJ.
Lion in The Mane is an American Rock band from New York City, NY. Formerly known as The Atlas, the band consists of Jon Masters (lead vocals, guitar, keys, bass), Dmitry Libman (lead guitar and backing vocals), Andrew Lynch (guitar, keys, synth and backing vocals) and Johnny Coryn (drums). The band’s long time original bassist and founding member Henry D’Allacco left the band after getting married in the Fall of 2013.
The band, which formed in 2009, brilliantly executed the debut of their incredible wall of sound to a sizable passionate audience at The Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York on December 14, 2010. Lion in The Mane’s musical style has been described as “building crescendos with dynamic conclusions which indicates the work of experienced musicians with a conscientious attention to songwriting detail” by the media, drawing comparisons to 30 Seconds to Mars, Angels and Airwaves and The Dangerous Summer.
