Fife & Drom
Fife & Drom
Fife & Drom is the brainchild of husband and wife team Mark Marshall and Abby Ahmad. Though the couple grew up down the street from each other in a tiny Pennsylvania town, destiny arranged their first meeting, oddly enough, over two decades later at the “Crossroads Cafe” in Brooklyn, NY. One might say their collaboration was fated. The duo pen original songs inspired by the works of blues pioneers Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Son House and beyond. Their name pays tribute to fife and drum blues music, a highly influential genre which emerged from Mississippi, the heart of Delta blues, as well as a nod to the dutch word “drom”, meaning “a group moving together with purpose”.

Joined by bassist Adam Minkoff and drummer Sean Dixon, Fife & Drom's music incorporates the infectious rhythms and sounds from Delta and Chicago blues, but adapts with content for today's life and times. Their explosive live shows have audiences captivated by the band's unbridled passion, ceaseless energy and powerful dynamics.

Their debut album, Introducing Fife & Drom is garnering early praise for its relevant and resonant voice in blues music. The album features the immense talents of Jon Cowherd (Brian Blade Fellowship, Roseanne Cash), Michael Leonhart (Steely Dan) and Jackson Kincheloe (Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds). Whether the role-flipping bravado of opening track “Wicked Tongue”, the eerie karmic retribution of “Ghosts”, or the heart-wrenching struggle of “Please, Please, Please”, Introducing Fife & Drom provides an unpretentious and unabashed entrance into the genre.
WalkTalk
WalkTalk
Walk Talk is Mayteana Morales and David Bailis. They have been playing together for almost a decade in Pimps of Joytime and many other projects. They finally found themselves writing original music. Walk Talk is best described as a culmination of time, genres, travels, rhythms, dances, love variations and soul vibrations. It cannot easily be defined. The sounds aim straight for the heart with the knowledge that we are all connected by shared experiences and that each beat and melody should not taken for granted.
