Durieux

Durieux, a Bronx-based band led by singer and rhythm guitarist Bryan Durieux, delivers an original take on Alternative Indie/Soul. Initially a solo act, Bryan now performs with a full band featuring soulfull bass (Seth "Happy" Nicolson), groove-centric drums (Danny Castro), and intricate guitar (Gannon Ferrell). Bryan's heartfelt lyrics, inspired by life experiences, combined with the band's sound, create a moving and groove-worthy expereince. Durieux has graced stages across NYC and beyond, including Rockwood Music Hall, Arlene's Grocery, Mercury Lounge, and The Apollo, where they earned 2nd place at Amateur Night. They are Sofar alums in multiple cities on the east coast and mid west. Durieux aims to create a euphoric community experience through music that connects to listeners on an emotional level.

Sophia Cruz 

Sophia Cruz is a Funk, Neosoul singer and musician taking influence from artists such as Stevie Wonder, Allen Stone, Hiatus Kaiyote and Amy Winehouse and more. Her origins trace back to growing up in a household with parents as musicians. Her inspiration for becoming a multi-instrumentalist is nothing but a reflection of the environment she was raised in. Learning and listening to anything from Funk and Jazz, to Opera and Folk. She attended Columbia College Chicago for undergrad and received a bachelor's in vocal performance and a minor in music business. She has continually been writing, recording, and performing her original music. With soulful wisdom in her sound of rich, warm vocals in funky, pocketed grooves, she continues to offer a fresh perspective on music new and old inspired by the foundation of classic Funk, Soul and RnB.

 

Jennifair 

Hailing from the south side of Chicago comes a fresh sound by the name of Jennifair. Her music brings us some of the soft, soulful vibes the music industry has been missing that you can let your hair down to and fill your soul up with. Jennifair's musical inspirations change all the time, but listed Beyonce, Janelle Monae, Sade, Big sean, J. Cole, Anita Baker, and Jasmine Sullivan as some of her favorite muses.

As someone who writes, produces, and composes her own music, she is constantly evolving with the musical inspirations she pulls from. "It's hard to [put] my sound in a box because I mix genres together., While listening to her music, you may hear essence of jazz, soul, pop, and alternative rock, just to name a few.

Ultimately, Jennifair hopes to grow her current fan base of folks who appreciate real and raw stories. With her authenticity and delivery, Jennifair touches people from all walks of life and all ages. "I'm not into facades or trying to put on this image of being something I'm not. I just want to make something people can feel and resonate with., And that, we do. If you like what you see, stream Jennifair's music, which is available on iTunes and Spotify, and new music will be out early Spring 2024
