Frank LoCrasto
Frank LoCrasto is a Brooklyn based musician, specializing in piano and synthesizers. He has performed and recorded extensively as a side man and leader since the early 2000's. He has also composed and recorded original scores for independent films.
His two solo albums "When You're There" (Maxjazz 2006) and "El Dorado" (Hundred Pockets 2011) explore themes of melancholy, longing, and loneliness. "When You're There" is a mostly acoustic jazz record featuring a small chamber orchestra on 4 out of the 9 tracks. The compositions generally have extended song forms and the record features Chris Cheek, Mike Moreno, Ben Street, and Tommy Crane as the core band. "El Dorado" was recorded in his basement apartment in Brooklyn, New York. It utilizes tube amps, drum machines, tape echo, pianos and vintage synths to create an alchemy of psychedelic and ambient music. Also appearing on that album is Josh Mease, Ryan Scott, Bill Campbell, and Bob Hart. A third self-titled album is set for release in the May 5, 2015.

Fort Gorgeous
Fort Gorgeous
Formed in Brooklyn, NY in 2016, Fort Gorgeous is the musical moniker of songwriter/guitarist Billy Libby. As a person sitting on a see-saw of optimism and pessimism, Billy creates pensive and atmospheric songs based heavily on intricate guitar melodies with lyrics that contemplate themes like death and the severity of all choices made in life. When not slipping into the darkness of all of life's "what ifs", Billy is often excited about life like a kid at an arcade with $30. Fort Gorgeous is currently working on a debut EP due out this fall and is collaboration with Gary Atturio, Saul Simon MacWilliams and other writers and musicians in both NYC and LA.
