Sweet Wednesday

"Think about the last time you received an unexpected and totally delightful gift. That's just how I felt when I heard the music of Sweet Wednesday. You’ll forgive the gushing when you hear the alt-country, folk, roots sound of the Boston-based duo known individually as Dave Falk and Lisa Housman. I didn't think musicians made music this addictive anymore." 
—Nancy Dunham, MTV Partner Ourstage

Sarah Mendelsohn 

"Sarah Mendelsohn’s debut solo CD (IF) is one of those local artist offerings that make you wonder why this artist is not already signed and famous. IF, loaded with finely crafted, rich, tuneful songs, manages to be a complete album experience from bright beginning to glorious finale. In fact, much of Mendelsohn's material defies category."
