The Duende Project – AS220 Streaming Session
Apr 22 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The Duende Project is the collaboration among Tony Brown, veteran performance poet;  Steven Lanning-Cafaro, bassist/guitarist; guitarist/producer Chris Lawton; and drummer Chris O’Donnell. Together they blend performance poetry with rock, jazz, funk, reggae, and more into a high energy blend of music and meaning. (Or something like that.) As The Duende Project, they’ve spent nearly 14 years performing up and down the East Coast and have released six collections of their work, including the recent “Live At AS220 (2019)” which can be found on all major download and streaming services.

Their website at http://theduendeproject.com offers links to videos and music, show schedules, and more.
Tony’s personal blog of constantly updated new poems, “Dark Matter,” is at http://radioactiveart.blog.
And of course, there’s the inevitable Facebook page for The Duende Project…titled, of course, “The Duende Project,” as well as the Twitter account @DuendeProject.

An Artist Named Flizz – AS220 Streaming Session
May 20 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

What is a “FLIZZ”?!? .. Follow the question with another and ask, What is an artist? … An Artist Named Flizz is a multiple award winning artist as a member of the New England group named “WHO DEM?. Also a music producer & song writer for WolfMan Productions. He is an idea all thrown together like a musical Frankenstein monster. The son of a lyrical singing father and soul music loving mother. The father of dancing daughter and a melodic son. Lover of music that touches the heart and inspires listeners. A 20 year community leader and voice for the inner city. He is a graduate of Johnson & Wales University. Flizz is a feeling of life in the moment and transformed into melodic poetry over instrumentation. His roots dig deep in the soil of South Providence RI. where he has experienced the greatest happiness along with heartache and sadness. An upbringing filled with lessons from love as well as violence. Having a love for ALL music and using it as an outlet he found a deep connection to hip hop, but loved to blend with multiple other genres. While a lot of his contemporaries use music as a tool to assimilate and others are entrenched in the original hip hop sound of days past. Flizz keeps the promise of being 100 percent himself and true to a making a feeling in songs. He is not REAL but he is ACTUAL. He is not reality television but ACTUAL VISION. An artist paints pictures and each bar is a brush stroke. Each production pattern is a urban renaissance composition. Flizz is an artist and The Artists Name is FLIZZ.

Molly Maguires – AS220 Streaming Session
Jun 24 @ 8:00 pm – 9:15 pm
Molly Maguires is an indie rock & roll band from New England … In the summer of 2009, founding member JJ Sorensen began conceptualizing and writing music for Molly Maguires. In 2010, while attending Framingham State University, Sorensen met vocalist Meghan Earle, and the pair would eventually launch a failed attempt to start Molly Maguires in 2014 with other musicians they had met at FSU. After this near-immediate disbandment, Earle went on to front the popular Boston-area cover band The Road Dawgs while Sorensen mostly abandoned music, occasionally working as a live guitarist for lifelong friend and pop/R&B artist Laura Dowding in their native Westerly, Rhode Island.
In late 2018, Sorensen was encouraged by then-coworker and entertainment industry veteran Kent Jordan to attempt another start at forming Molly Maguires. Earle, who had begun looking for original projects, agreed to join. After the duo recorded an acoustic demo in Earle’s apartment in early 2019, Sorensen began assembling a band. Jordan would go on to serve as Production Manager for the group’s debut album Public Enemies, which was recorded in November and December of 2019 and released on April 7th, 2020. The 8-track concept album was produced by Sorensen and Bradford Krieger and released to widespread acclaim, with singles “October Sky” and “For A Few $ More” receiving frequent airplay on college and indie radio.
After the COVID-19 pandemic prevented Molly Maguires from touring to support their debut album, the group instead began writing and production for their second full-length LP That’s My Story, which is tabbed for release on June 25th, 2021. The first single “Soul Searching” was released on February 12th, 2021 and climbed the college radio charts, reaching the top-200 (unweighted) and peaking at 202 in the weighted category. The second single off That’s My Story, “Hey Boyo,” was released on March 19th, 2021 and received a glowing review from Glide Magazine, who premiered the track on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th, 2021.
