Rosita Kèss

Originally from Venice, Italy, Rosita  lived in Berlin, Paris, Barçelona and London before landing in the States where she has lived both in New Orleans and New York.   Her last release, F.L.O.Y.D., was written and recorded in the crescent city.   “ I love living in a constant state of motion and I think my music refects this. I have a little Argentinian blood and the very first compositions I fell in love with were old recording by Mercedes Souza and Ariel Ramirez that my grandmother used to play in the house. I’ve always felt particularly sentimental listening to Tango; it ‘s the music of the immigrants, it reflects their profound sense of loss and longing for the people and places they left behind. It was born in African-Argentinian dance venues where Polkas, Mazurkas, Waltzes were mixed with the popular Habanera from Cuba and the Candombe rhythms from Africa. These are the major influences in my music.” 

Rosita's music lives at the intersection where bossa nova collides with French chanson, and old Cuban rhythms meet their Argentine counterparts. Her most recent songs are deeply influenced by her love for Haitian and West African music, and by her collaborations with revered Haitian musician and LunÀtico mainstay, Tiga Jean Baptiste.

Hugh Pool

Just when you thought you knew all about the Williamsburg rock scene, here comes someone to throw a wrench in the works. For the uninitiated, this is Mr. Hugh Pool who's been sliding and fingerpicking his National through his Ibanez Tube Screamer since the first time those clothes were in style.

He has shared the stage with such luminaries as Patti Smith, Gov't Mule, Leslie West, Johnny Winter, Dave Edmunds, John Mayall, The Fabulous Thunderbirds and more. He has performed on the Emeril Lagassi Show, The Mitch Albom Show and Late Night With Conan O'Brien. His original songs have been used in network TV, movies, award-winning documenaries and an off Broadway play. When he's not playing, performing or writing you can find him twiddling the knobs on the big board at his Brooklyn studio. Excello Recording is where he's worked with talented folks like Debbie Harry, Kiki & Herb, Michael Brecker, Radio 4, Joseph Arthur, Larry Campbell, Tony Garnier, and, well, the list does go on.

So you can see that he's no one trick pony. Hugh hails from the Rust Belt, which is where he draws inspiration for his backwoods amalgam of rock, country & blues. But living in New York for the last 20 years has tweaked his sensibilities a bit. His brand of trad psyche-delta stomp comes with a bit of New York noise-damage.
