Quadron

Quadron
Wow. That word perfectly describes Quadron's performance at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC on April 25th. The lead vocalist Coco O was dressed in an all-white dress that sparkled in the extravagant beams of light radiating the stage. Although her smile and body language communicated that she was modest, her vocals were bold and were confident in grabbing the audience's attention. Quadron performed some of their most popular songs that night, like "Slippin'" and "Hey Love," while the whole crowd sang the lyrics out loud in unison. One of my personal favorites of the night was the song "Jeans," which gives off that jazzy, soulful feel with the electric and bass guitar sounding so freakin' good together, while the saxophone displays its appreciation by presenting its string of pearly musical notes. Enough with me explaining with words the experience. Watch the video below of the performance for proof.

Seasick Mama

Seasick Mama
If Seasick Mama had her way, she would invite her whole audience on stage with her to dance and sing-along to every one of her songs. During her performance at the Cameo Gallery on April 20th, she danced as if she was in front of her bedroom mirror and sang as if she was in her shower with no care in the world. Watching her perform will give you the feeling of wanting to break free and have no worries. Her energy on stage is refreshing. Seasick Mama's music is soft and hard at the same time, as in "Quit Your Job," which starts out gentle and sweet, bursts into a raging storm, and then settles into a light breeze. I can't wait for her next album Tip Top Shape to come out. Check out the video interview below.
