sensitivity, enhanced by a whimsical yet kickass attitude, Christy
Angeletti’s writing articulates the sensibilities of the generation
through her perspective. Themes of grace and strength radiate
throughout her music.
“There is nothing in this world that makes me happier than my
songwriting. I love to record songs that evoke the feelings of
strength and love, or even express sadness. I love to sing and
write songs that have a little attitude and tell things how they are.”
The excitement is building as Christy gears up for her mid-winter
tour of 2013. At her back are talented Nashville musicians; Tommy
Daley, lead guitar; Mike Vargo, Bass; David Walker, keys; and
Eric Powers, drums. The chemistry is electric. It is on stage, with
her band, that she truly shines. With a mischievous smile and

Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds Impacting Top 40/Hot AC
Howard Rosen Promotion (www.howiewood.com) artist Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds are impacting Top 40/Hot AC radio with The Long Way.
Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds is an eight-piece powerhouse that puts a modern spin on classic soul. The band is led by Arleigh Kincheloe (Sister Sparrow), whose astoundingly powerful voice and sly demeanor make for a spellbinding presence onstage. She is backed by the mighty force of The Dirty Birds, a flock of seven men who masterfully lay down thundering grooves and soaring melodies. While each of the Birds are capable of lighting up the stage with jaw-dropping displays of musicianship, it’s clear they’re focused on delivering the band’s infectious music as a single entity. Simply put, the band’s live show is explosive.
2012 was a breakout year for the eight piece soul/rock outfit Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds. The band closed out the year with two nights of opening for Gov’t Mule, which included a night at the famed Beacon Theatre in New York. They played more than 150 shows in 35 states for the second year in a row, and their high-energy show is in high demand after scorching sets at festivals as Bonnaroo, Mountain Jam’s main stage, the Voodoo Experience, and the Clearwater Jazz Holiday, where they opened for The Avett Brothers.
The year included a number of accolades for the band “ selling out the Independent in San Francisco with Rebirth Brass Band, opening for Fitz and the Tantrums, Counting Crows, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, and a three week run with Allen Stone that culminated in an Austin City Limits late night set. In February, they played a Midnight Ramble at Levon Helm’s studios, where they shared the stage with Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers, Gov’t Mule) and Donald Fagen (Steely Dan).

Nosoyo Going For Adds August 5 & 6
Howard Rosen Promotion (www.howiewood.com) artist Nosoyo is going for adds now.
The members of the band Nosoyo ran into each other at the Conservatory of Amsterdam. After a year of writing, polishing and performing their songs, the moment of spreading the word about their existance has come. Nosoyo is a five-headed group under the leadership of Donata Kramarz, a singer/composer from Bonn, Germany, who has been living in Amsterdam for the past couple of years. The band evolved from Donata’s solo project, which means she is the main songwriter. The musicians’ participation in the arrangements has lead to the logical step of presenting themselves as a band. Nosoyo is part of a young and rising scene in Amsterdam, including bands like Houses, Bombay Show Pig and Ãœber-Ich, the latter of which Donata is also a member of.
The first step is a 10 track album in a style that is not very easy to define: Their sound “ sometimes epic, sometimes intimate “ changes from extrovert to introvert, from dreamy to spooky; sometimes all in one song. The lyrics are about the two main subjects of artists’ all time inspirational sources: Love and death. Nosoyo is not a band that moves within the lines, they use originality and they are keen on experimenting to create their own space in the pop world.
The album was recorded combining digital and analogue techniques, after Nosoyo had been properly prepared by touring through Holland, Germany and Spain. A demo version of their song Close To Me has already been released on the 2011 fall-edition of the famous Mercedes Benz Mixtape, and their song žFrom Now On is featured on the July 2012 edition. Nosoyo’s debut album, called Just before the faint, has been realized in fully independent ways and has been released in direct sell.
