People's Champs
With feet placed equally in Brooklyn's thriving indie rock community and it's renowned retro funk & soul scene, bandleader Alex Asher founded People's Champs inspired by the idea that music is for everyone: They creatively deliver a unique blend of powerful lyrics and danceable rhythms that relate to people from all walks of life. After rocking big events at The Guggenheim Museum and The MoMA, countless NYC underground parties, and a multiple-year monthly residency at Brooklyn creative music hotspot Barbès, People's Champs is now gearing up to release their first full-length album, "American Dreamers" on October 23rd, 2015 on boutique Brooklyn label 3rd Generation Recordings.



The highly anticipated album, recorded half at Converse Rubber Tracks Studio in Williamsburg and half in bedrooms, living rooms and basements all over Brooklyn, has been in the works for over two years. Produced by Ian Hersey of internationally recognized group Rubblebucket, the album will feature nine original tracks. People's Champs' highly danceable single "Humanity", heralded by Deli Magazine as "Ridicuously catchy", is now available as a digital release.



People's Champs is an all-star collective featuring some of Brooklyn's most creative and original musicians. Members of People's Champs have performed internationally with artists including Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Lip Talk, Bajah and Dry Eye Crew, Cuddle Magic and Delicate Steve, among others. People's Champs feature members of The Superpower Horns, the recording studio horn section for Beyoncé Knowles. They arranged the horn lines on two of Beyoncé's top albums, her 2013 surprise album 'Beyoncé' and her 2011 effort '4'. The song "Love on Top", featuring the horns prominently, won a Grammy Award. When asked about the horn section, Beyoncé recently gushed, "those guys are genius!"

Maitri
Maitri
Translated from Sanskrit, Maitri (”my tree”) is an unconditional friendship and acceptance towards oneself that in turn extends to the greater outside world and its people. This group was formed by Caroline Davis to embrace both the hardship and ecstasy of life through song, and it is now a collective songwriting outlet for both herself and Ben Hoffmann.

Incorporating a heavy dose of Soul and R&B, Maitri also draws upon indie, funk, and jazz influences to create a unique sound in the Brooklyn musical landscape.
