Jocelyn Mackenzie is a Brooklyn-based, singer, songwriter, songwriting coach, percussionist, writer, fiber artist and all around maker of things. She is best known as 1/3 of indie-pop trio Pearl and the Beard, who released their farewell album Beast in 2015. The band is proud to have three songs from their catalog featured in Michael Showalter's new film Hello, My Name is Doris, starring Sally Field and Max Greenfield, in theaters in March 2016. The band has an extensive touring history across the US, UK and Canada with such noteworthy artists as Ani DiFranco, Neko Case, Iron & Wine, Ingrid Michaelson, Bastille, Dar Williams, Lucius, You Won't, David Wax Museum, Lady Lamb, The Drums, Matt + Kim, Sharon Van Etten and more.

Mackenzie is a proud volunteer at the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls, for which she has performed, coached, and given songwriting workshops for young musicians. In 2015 Mackenzie collaborated with Emily Hope Price to write and perform music for the independent theater piece All We Have Left, granted by the Jim Henson Foundation and the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center. Mackenzie is eager to release her new EP Unlovely later this year, which features a collaboration with Ani DiFranco and handmade accessories and jewelry for the album's cover art. In addition to her accessories design and music, Mackenzie also knits professionally and has created garments for such clients as Coach, Helmut Lang, Calvin Klein and Edun. Yep.
Naeemah Maddox
Naeemah Maddox
Philly born and bred, Naeemah Z. Maddox aka NaeemBot

is a singer songwriter, composer, and multi- instrumentalist. Naeemah’s style is a unique combination of soul, progressive rock, singer-songwriter, and neoclassical influences.

NaeemBot has been on a musical journey that’s led her to produce her most ambitious work yet. Vile Tyrant and the MiddleMen (VTMM) is a fusion of chamber pop, progressive rock and soul, blended into a unique and original style. Five years in the making, VTMM started as a collection of GarageBand demos that Naeemah initially began recording as early as 2007. Constantly writing and recording elaborate demos, Naeemah soon had a growing collection of songs bridging many styles with her quirky writing sensibility.

Using the musical skeletons of the songs, she reimagined the harmonies, articulation, and scoring. Now unleashed and unrestrained, in addition to playing guitar and singing, Naeemah has recorded all of the flutes, violins, and keyboard parts as well as composing, and producing it herself. “Vile Tyrant and the MiddleMen” is scheduled for a June 20th 2017 release.

In addition to performing her original music, Naeemah also plays guitar in the RoseMary Fiki Band, Bkgvox for artist Donn T., guitar for artist Alexa Gold, vocals for Jewish-World Music ensemble – Ezuz. Naeemah also contributed backing vocals on progressive thrash metal band Vektor ‘s 2016 release “Terminal Redux”.
Uncle Monsterface
Uncle Monsterface
Uncle MONSTERFACE is now live drums, guitar, and keyboards with Marty singing while he plays bass. Paradise Dan is still stealing hearts and minds (and souls) with his rock guitar prowess and boy-ish charms. Spooki Olde Eric still hits drums with sticks. Hard. The sock puppets are out looking for their Uncle. And we are exciting to add the Keyboard Slaying Powers and Prowess of Hidden Harlan, Submarine Commander of Doom. Awesome-rock songs about ninjas, robots, gary gygax, other robots, flying accountants, Nintendo, zombies, and lobsters. The geeks have inherited the earth, rock stage, and local economy.
