Formed in 2016, Jack Swing has moved relentlessly since its inception. The band’s live energy is nothing less than infectious and its unique combination of of rock, soul, and funk have a created a special sound that is completely unique to Jack Swing. The band has recently completed its debut album which is set to be released before the end of the year and is their strongest piece of work yet. It’s safe to say Jack Swing is one to watch as they solidify themselves as one of the greats. 

Feralcat and the Wild is a 5-piece prog rock/jazz fusion band from Pittsburgh, PA featuring Feralcat (saxophone), Aedan Symmons (guitar), Matt Elias (guitar), Chris “Trip” Trepagnier (bass) and Allen Bell (drums). With deliberate use of a saxophone in place of a vocalist, Feralcat and the Wild treads the path of an instrumentalist who strays from pre-existing musical constructs. Our music uses sweeping lyrical melodies over heavy guitar-driven rhythms to create a sound that can be both heard and felt deeply. Influences like Underoath and Circa Survive are as treasured as those of Esperanza Spalding and Robert Glasper. Their songs break barriers and melt faces, stimulating the mind with improvised saxophone music that simultaneously rocks the listener onto their dancing feet. With the band’s debut self-titled EP (2019), they made a musical style that wouldn’t be put in a box. It is chaotic and daring, and yet fully-realized; and most of all, it’s punk as can be.  

Mani Bahia (Mawn-Knee Bye-Eee-Yuh) is an American musician, writer, lyricist, singer-songwriter, and performer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Mani in late 2018 and also dropped her first project, “Solstice,” featuring a collection of original acoustic tracks recorded in nature with raw vocals and voice memos of the singer’s reflective thoughts and feelings. Mani Bahia’s second project titled “Inferno” is set to release this year. “Inferno” is majority produced, arranged, and written by Mani Bahia and holds a few surprise production credits. Like Bilal Abbey’s co-produced track titled “FRIZZ,” and on “LINK,” you can hear bass by Benji. of Spillage Village. Bahia’s “Inferno” will give the listener a taste of varied genres such as Alt R&B, Hip-Hop, Rock, House, and Soul. The genre-bending “Inferno” is a full-bodied artistic work that expresses the grit, vulnerability, and devoted integrity Bahia has not only to her craft, but her journey to finding her footing in the world using music and songwriting as the anchor.
